"Archival project and then now I'm just worried about application when you know when you pivot to film and you're like, I'm getting real my original print of gods and kings. Like my heroes? Yeah. I would that it were, you know? Was it a word? That's all I can say about that. If I need to get a canister storage space, I will get it. Listen, maybe one day we'll do a exploring the shelving episode of this podcast. But that would be fun not today. Let's go back to our lists. So where do we leave off? Are we on number three for you Amanda? Yeah. Okay. Which you just vacated, allowing me to claim all things being equal this would also have been my number. I mean, this is where it gets a little boring. No duh. Thelma and Louise. One of the great American films of the last a hundred years and a prime example of Ridley Scott just understanding what to do with female characters and women and being interested in them. I thought he gave a very spicy interview to deadline recently, which I also saw. Recommend. And talked about how query wrote this script, and they're different of take on how funny this movie is and this movie is like, obviously, has a lot of dark themes, including sexual assault and murder and strange you know, upsetting domestic situations. Not to mention it's ending, I suppose, but to find the comedy in this Sean that you were talking about. It really is a way to find the heart and the warmth and this is, I mean, this is a friendship movie and a really strangely hopeful movie again given the very famous ending, which I guess I won't say it, but if I'm spoiling the ending of thelma and Louise for you know, please stop listening to this podcast and just go watch that one Luis. Let's all accept reality together. Geena Davis, Susan Sarandon..

"Four. Chris. Okay, so I'm gonna go with Black Hawk down here. So this is his modern war film in a lot of ways it's one of the most I would say visceral depictions of warfare outside of Saving Private Ryan that you'll ever see. It's probably one of his more controversial movies because I think that rightfully people have pointed out some of the depictions of the Somali combatants that are not exactly nuanced. And also it takes some liberties historically with what may or may not have happened in Mogadishu at the time. That being said, this is an example of the adaptability of his filmmaking. So you think of release Scott and you think of control and you think of like these beautiful frames and this depth of the imagery and like this beauty. And then this is very much like his late brother Tony's movies where it's like rip and run handheld chaos and I kind of just can't believe that even throughout what is basically a 90 minute action sequence to end this film. You always know where you are, you always kind of see understand what's at stake. You understand the task that's in front of the actors and speaking of the actors. I guess I don't even know if this is to his credit. Every single performer that we ever talk about in this podcast is in this movie. Like the cast of this movie, including people who have one line, where it's just like, that's Tom Hardy. Like that's just that Tom already with three lines in this film. So I rewatched this again recently and I was like, yeah, I can see why this film definitely has some real structural integrity or applause, but as a piece of filmmaking, it's hard to figure out like if anyone else in the history of movies could movie. Amazing movie. I found some of the little hard to rewatch. It's very intense. And you really have to lock into it. You can't tell me I can't. I mean there's machine gun fire nonstop for basically more than an hour. But it's an incredible piece of work obviously. Okay, Amanda, what do you got? The Martian. Apollo 13 on Mars? Sure. I'll take it. You know, this is obviously like kind of a late period Matt Damon's signature performance. And a lot about Ridley Scott assembling casts and also assembling beautiful vistas. I mean, what a beautiful recreation of Mars. It's the Mars that exists in my head forever. But this is an interesting one because it is so warm hearted, which certainly for any movie set in space, it's not really what you've come to expect. Things working out. And people being together and teamwork in a Ridley Scott film, but that's what the script is. And again, it's one of the things where he puts this great cast together..

"I really wanted to do a good year guys. I tried so hard. I watched again. And then it's not good. I did then end up just like how shopping and Provence for a while came really afford anything there yet. Some of the French property laws are a little impenetrable to me. But I did my best and I couldn't do it so I'm going with House of Gucci. Because this is what I want Ridley Scott to be doing. And I think the appeal of these mid tier movies are how do you want this just complete expert craftsmen of so many different genres to spend his time and the money that he can secure and the movie stars that he can get. And for me, not to spoil somebody else's pick, but some people may choose very, very long medieval battle. Sequence, and some people may choose a cormac McCarthy novel, and I choose beautiful people in Italy wearing Gucci, you know? I just like, it's one for me. So thank you, sir Ridley. I truly appreciate you. Well, you've effectively previewed my number 5, which is the counselor. I got no shame about this one either. In the same way that I'm like Prometheus is sick. The counselor is sick. Of course, it's a preposterous script by cormac McCarthy. Overwriting his way straight into the moon. Of course, the performances are ridiculous. Fast vendor Penelope cruise Cameron Diaz Javier Bardem Brad Pitt, Rubin blot is a number of other people who are chewing the way I'll choose his way through House of Gucci. Of course, this movie looks beautiful. Of course, the production design and the costumes, the great malkin addresses the car that she humps the bolito that strangles one of the key characters near the end of the film. Unreal. Every little piece is beautiful. It's all the same people that Chris just described we've been working with him for the last ten or 15 years now consistently. This is the same way the house of Gucci takes you in the world. This takes you into a world of high powered Devils. This is the bad place. What all of these people are doing, which is to say, running drugs working with cartels. And you know, using this fast vendor character again is kind of a POV character not unlike the Gaga character taking us into this world. But he too is a piece of shit. And if you are a cockpit character, I don't defend anything the character does. No, I don't, I know. But I think that Ridley also has a real keen interest in the dark heart of man. And that seems a bit pretentious, but it's true. But he's not the author of this movie. You know what I mean? Like it's McCarthy through and through if you've read his stuff in the performances override any of the directions in some ways, it's almost like a stage play adaptation. And he'll fucking do that. It doesn't all need to be so Ridley and my ideas and my thing. He'll be like, oh, I really like this. I really like the Martian. I really like, you know, this bottle of wine or whatever. This David yeast book. And I'll just bake it. It's not too precious. But he does so by also shooting the cheetahs galloping and killing the prey. You know what I mean? Like he's still doing this really, really high tension, beautiful, like basically American Express commercial style photography that is captivating when you have a corporate McCarthy script. So,.

"I did two pods yesterday and I needed to lie down. So he is really just a very, very special person. Chris I'll start with you since I know he's such a big figure for you. When you think of Ridley, what do you think of? How would you describe your relationship to his movies, explain the Ridley Scott experience? So he's a really interesting filmmaker because I think that psychologically, I sometimes play him with the great O tours whose movies become these big events. So whether you're talking about a PTA or a Quentin Tarantino, not generally generationally but in terms of the way I view him. You know, it's like, oh, one of the great filmmakers. Then you look at the filmography and you're like, man, there's a lot of there's a lot of just like studio work here. There's just a lot of you were curious. You made the movie or maybe you got brought in by a movie star to do this and you thought it would be fun. And every single time out, he makes something worth watching. Every single time out, I think he makes something that actually stands the test of time. Because when you go back through this filmography, a lot of these are movies that I had a lot of anticipation for. A lot of enthusiasm for is they were coming. And it may be in the theater, like, it's not really what I thought the alien sequel from Ridley Scott was going to be. It's not really what I thought it was going to be when Ridley Scott did, you know, a CIA movie or something. But then you go back and revisit it on cable, maybe fire it up on streaming, and you're like, this is just better than anything I've seen a long time. This is like quite obviously the work of a master craftsman. And I should say usually we mention these kinds of things and it sounds like lip service. I think he's an incredible manager because he works with the same people over and over again. That's why he's he can work at the pace he works at. And they are quite clearly the best at what they do. Like Arthur max is quite clearly the best production designer working in Hollywood. There is whisky is one of the best cinematographers working. Clear Simpson's one of the best editors. He goes back to these people. They have like a clink Eastwood esque sort of production line where they just can crank these out. And I just love his curiosity and I love his depth of frame. He just is such a beautiful, beautiful composition, maker of compositions, and storyteller, and even when there's mistakes, or even when there's flaws. I still find the flaws pretty interesting. Yeah, one other thing that I really like about him is that he swings hard. You know, exodus gods and kings is one of his least successful movies. But is there a bigger swing than exodus gods and kings? That is truly a tale of the ten plagues. And, you know, it's admirable that someone is willing to do that..

"Could see it. It's different, right? Because Angelina, Lady Gaga is, of course, a beautiful and striking woman, but there is something I think about her look that indicates something like that that tension that you're describing between Jeremy Irons is kind of point of view of her individually is so statuesque and so this is sort of like image of perfection that would have I think it might have altered my perception of the story that they were telling here. And Talia Gaga's credit in this movie, she like her physical presentation and the clothes kind of disintegrate along with her her characters stature. And so by the time, I mean, are we not spoiling this movie? I don't think we should spoil it too much. Okay. Did you really not know? Never read anything about this in my life. Okay. Fascinating. I mean, there's been a lot of journalism about this. Anyway, the final scenes when Lady Gaga is reaches her character arc. She does not look glamorous anymore. We'll put it that way. And intentionally so. And it's kind of hard to unglamorous Angelina, Jolie. As we just saw in eternals. There's one other what if, in 2016, Wonka Y was going to direct this movie with Margot Robbie as Patricia. Now, I don't remember hearing that, me neither. But that would have been. This is also like one car Y had like an Amazon show like that was supposed to be a New York City gang gangs show. I don't know where Wong is up to, but make movies. Are you calling bullshit on this? No, I'm just like, he definitely went through from 2000 14 till even now where it's just like, where's the movie? Come on, let's do it. It's a good point. You know, great art takes a long time to cook unless you're Ridley Scott and you have to make two movies in the same year. Let's talk about, let's talk about Ridley. I may have told this story before and on the show and I apologize if I have it. I'm just going to tell it again. In 2010, CR and I went to the movies together. We went to go see a movie called Robin Hood. At the time I was living in park slope and I was living on the ground floor of a brownstone. Amanda you've been to that apartment in the past. And in the basement of that apartment, which often flooded and was filled with CD jewel cases Chris Ryan and I recorded a podcast about Ridley Scott. We did not work together at the time. This was pre grantland. It was just for fun. Just two Bros talking Ridley. Shano trap house that we called it. And that pod has been destroyed and will never see the light of day. Are we sure? We're not totally sure. Here's the thing. No matter what. I'm certain that Christmas magnificent because Chris had to touch from moment one. And.

"And smoke with the pigeons, and that's the crumbling heart of Gucci. This is like a namesake for this empire, and he is just a broken sad little guy who is getting kicked around and overtaken by people who are more cutthroat and smarter and outside influences. And it's actually like the performance within the sort of Tapestry of the movie really, really worked for me. Now I don't know whether Ridley Scott was like exactly. That's exactly what I was going for when I read this script. Or if he was just like, great. That seems good and that seems good and we're going to move on. And that I think is a question that if he answers if he answers those questions right more often than not in his more recent movies, then you get a good movie. And if he's just kind of like, yada yada is them, you get all the money in the world, you know? You know, I think you're exactly right, and I think what you're describing is about the empowerment of actors. Really loves to work with movie stars. He's incredible at filming framing and platforming movie stars. And this movie is a great example of that. All the money in the world is such a fascinating question there because of course Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams are movie stars. But Kevin Spacey was originally J Paul Getty in that movie, and I remember I went back and looked at this before I saw House of Gucci that first trailer for all the money in the world. You guys may remember this. It kind of like culminates in this reveal in the final shot of the trailer of Kevin Spacey in all of this makeup as Getty, and it was a kind of like a boom. It was like an Avengers Endgame kind of like bet you didn't see this coming kind of a moment, and then shortly thereafter all of the revelations about Spacey came aboard, but you kind of felt like they were setting up a similar kind of performance from Spacey to kind of build the movie around. The way this movie is weirdly built around Jared Leto at times in a way that I never expected when I sat down to watch it. I think that you nailed something very specific. Also, Salma Hayek, Jeremy Irons, like, these are very good actors, Academy Award nominated actors who are kind of like playing a little below the taste that we expect from them. I think sometimes, Jeremy Irons is really trying to maintain his level of dignity in this movie, but it's tough. Eh, what was the Jennifer Lawrence spy movie that Jeremy Irons just showed up? Yeah, red Jeremy. It's not below his taste..

"And it's fascinating when he really decides to turn it off. And a few times he actually doesn't go full out, which I also think really works, and possibly makes it like an actual performance as opposed to just, you know, a featured YouTube clip. But yeah, it is what you'd hope. Yeah, there is a kind of a quiet misery in some of the Aldo Gucci performance. And when you see what happens to his character over time, you see that it is not just all glamour and excess for him. So Jared Leto. In my lifespan as someone who has covered the world of movies, Jared Leto has really been through all of the phases of life. He has been a reclamation project from the world of television. He hasn't been considered one of the most beautiful people on earth. He has been considered a surprisingly talented actor. He has been considered an Academy Award winning actor. He has been considered one of the most annoying people on movie sets in the history of the industry. He's been considered the lead singer for 30 seconds to Mars your favorite band. And I have seen live, in fact, because I wrote a piece about Jared Leto almost ten years ago for grantland about how maybe he was a little bit misunderstood. Now, in that time, he went on to play the Joker and become deeply annoying. You may recall, he was nominated for a Golden Globe just this year, for a film called the little things. Remember that? He was the basically the best part of the little things. I wouldn't say he was the best of anything, but he was worthwhile. Well, I mean, just like, to the extent that that movie was working. To the extent that people were trying things. He was trying it. Yes. At a bare minimum, we know that Jared Leto is always going for it. He does not mail anything in, and he is very divisive. A movie like Blade Runner 2049, a lot of people saw his performance and were like, wow, he took me way out of this beautiful little dollhouse that you built by putting this jerk in this movie. In this movie, I believe that this is the single best use of his talents in the history of his career, because Paolo Gucci is one of the dumbest people that's ever appeared in a film. And his self delusion is transcendent to me. It is magnificent. And he is not putting on any heirs. He's like, I am literally doing Luigi. I do not care. I will be Luigi for two and a half hours. He's also fat. I believe in Luigi. You know? Like Luigi has a heart and a beautiful artist soul. Absolutely. He's like, he's not Super Mario. He's Luigi. He's the number two. You know, he's like, why do I have to play the back? Why can't I get time with princess peach? You can feel that agony from him. And I loved it. I thought it was I laughed at almost everything he said. Your mileage is really going to vary on this one. If someone comes out of this movie and they're like, that guy is an idiot and I hated this movie. I understand what did you guys think? You go first, man. Well, I just kind of reclaimed some space for Jordan catalano. You know? Can we just take a moment? You know, for my childhood and many other people's childhood and be like, that was like one, Jared Leto. But post Jordan catalano, I'm with you..

"He is doing an Italian accent, but it's quite restrained relative to his costars. You think he's going for it? Well, they're like an 11 and he's at 7, right? Okay. But it is still like Adam Driver doing like that is not. That's my family name. You know, it's like a very serious actor who believes in craft and doesn't like to watch himself and it's like really believes in the characters. Like, you know, doing his best Super Mario. It's true. There is something fascinating about that. Again, I think he's quite good. He's really like never not been good. We're on kind of one of the more unusual unbroken hot streaks in movie acting history right now with him. This is so savvy to probably walk on that set and just be like, ah, okay, I see what other people are doing. I need to be the calm in the storm here. Because if Pacino Leto and Gaga are doing that and I'm screaming. And I'm like, I want to be a lawyer. It's not going to work. It's just going to be too much. Very much the case. I think he's very effective in this movie. They're also something kind of sinister about Adam Driver. There's a reason he was cast as kylo ren. There's a reason he was kind of menacing at times on girls. And I think he taps into that in the second half of this film very effectively when he sort of turns the movie also really understands his physical presence and physicality. And that's not just like he looks so handsome and all of these things, even though, like, oh my God, can this man went so close? When when Adam Driver is in the San Maria house and just like a full cashmere navy bathrobe, I was just like, I did it. I made it to a place in my life. But what did you think of Adam Driver wearing like the dickies jumpsuit in the beginning when he's working at the trucking facility? And that in their letting him, he looks great and it's like playing soccer and they are just like letting this very tall like physically impressive guy just like be really hot. You know, they have him like in Gucci suits, just like jumping around at one point, like he's in a GQ photo shoot by himself. You know? I forgot. So and he is bigger than everybody and so there's like the restrained emotional or, you know, kind of like intellectual part of his performance. But he's doing a lot just by being on screen looking as good as he looks. And the movie lets him do it, which I appreciate it. The one thing that I find funny about his performance and the role in general is in the first 15 minutes, he's presented as it's kind of like the male. She's all that, you know, where it's like he's wearing glasses and maybe he's a little bit bookish and he's not actually among the most handsome and strapping young movie stars on the planet. And then by the time we get to the back half of the movie, it's clear that he is embracing fully his incredible on screen physicality presence, charisma, et cetera. to Al. Chris, you and Al have a deep and tender long running relationship. And you know, Al is no spring chicken. And I must say I was impressed by the power and energy of his motor at this stage of his career. What did you think about? I thought it was one of the first real roles he's had in a while. You know, like, a real character and a real arc.

"Well, there's just a cinematic energy that Ridley Scott brings to every movie he does regardless of the genre, and he is a master of so many different genres, whether it's sword and shield's epic or going out into space or doing these portraits of greed and malfeasance, like he's done here, and he did, you know, I think all the money in the world. He's touched on these kinds of empty people in the European countrysides. Multiple times, even good years kind of basically this counselor too is very similar, yeah. Yeah, and I think that this just gave me a very good example of like, you know, you watch a lot of TV shows and you think that could be a movie and you see some movies and you're like, did you want this to be a TV show? And this is just something that I felt like everybody was in its right. Everything was in its right place. There were two very strong leads. There were three, very strong supporting performances. The sets and locations were incredible. And I don't know if you have to shoot ten hours and you're moving people in and out, whether or not you really get that pure fucking Tuscan hit of the sun..

"It's intentional and transcendent. And I just, let's be real, if you don't want to see Lady Gaga and Adam Driver swanning around Italy in like clothes, then you and I are not alike. And perhaps this movie is not for you. But we are not the same. But this movie was for me. See, what'd you think? You're a longtime chronicler of the works of Ridley Scott. What do you make of passive Gucci? You know how some people say they go to action movies and they're just like, hey, I just want to, I just want to see the explosions. Yeah. Gucci's in action movie, but the explosions is acting. Yes. I just wanted to see the acting and there's so much acting. There's mannered, subtle acting. There is absolutely like basque region, beautiful ham that you can just scrape off the bone with a Swiss Army knife. There is like very cultured black forest ham that you get. You're like, it is absolutely unbelievable. The spread they put out and they just say, dive in, tuck your tie in, maybe put a bib on, but dive into the feast of performances. So I did not really know anything about this story. I have not followed the Gucci family, the Gucci fashion labels, history at all. And this is in many ways this was a surprising story to me. We're talking a lot about, I think the surrounding, not quite campiness, but the excess that makes this such a fun movie, but I was also fortunate to not really know where the movie was going the whole time. So it kind of kept me on the line as a narrative moviegoing experience. Just briefly for the listeners since they have likely not seen this movie by the time we're doing this. So the movie follows protrusa, who is the ambitious wife of maurizio Gucci, patrizia is played by Gaga, Mauricio bay, Adam Driver. Patricia marries her way into this Italian luxury label, the family business is very appealing. For Mauricio, but he's also on the outside of it in some ways. He's attempting to become a lawyer. His father and his father's brother, rodolfo and Aldo played respectively by Jeremy Irons and Al Pacino, neither of whom are from Italy. They really run the company. And Patricia wants in on the company. She wants power. She wants Mauricio to have power. Surrounding them, his cousin, for his cousin, I should say, Paolo Gucci, played by Jared Leto, who we referenced earlier. There are a number of other talented actors in this film Salma Hayek appears as a psychic slash confident Jack Houston appears as a family lawyer..

"Location, restriction supply. It's a me, Shawn fantasy. I'm Amanda dobbins. And this is a bigger picture conversation with the house of a Gucci. I didn't even get to practice that. That was just like you went right into it. Amanda later in this episode, I'm gonna have a conversation with Chris fryer in one of the filmmakers behind DMX. Don't try to understand it's the latest installment in ringer films music box series on HBO and HBO Max, the film debuts on Thanksgiving Day. So tuck into a nice meal, set down on your couch, fire the movie up with your family, I would really appreciate it. This movie was shot and completed while DMX was still with us. In 2019 and 2020, one of my favorite artists, there's something very bittersweet and beautiful about this movie. I hope you will watch it. But now let's talk about our feast. Let's give thanks, let's give thanks to Ridley Scott for doing two things. One bringing House of Gucci into our lives and two really uniting me closely with our Gladiator are matchstick man, the growing alien baby inside of us all. It's Chris Ryan. Hey guys. You.

"Bloomberg quick takes Tim steno V from Bloomberg radio Sharing a laughlin was the romantic partner that gave fashion Zion maurizio Gucci the strength to leave his wife Tim it was a decision that would get him killed back in 1995 It's a story that still resonates in the fashion world And in Hollywood says audiences await the release of the saga retold in the Ridley Scott film House of Gucci it's due out in theaters this coming week more than two decades after the book it's based on was published Bloomberg Sarah Ford and penned the house of Gucci a sensational story of murder madness glamour and greed Her new piece of this week's pursuit section shares McLaughlin's side of the story for the first time Sarah's team leader for corporate influence in Washington and was also named to lead our new tech policy squad earlier this year She joins us along with Bloomberg pursuits editor Chris rouser Sarah it's really great to have you with us just take us back and tell us how so many years ago you became so immersed in the story to begin with Hi Well thanks for having me I mean this was an incredible story that just really drew me in because there was so many twists and turns and this family fashion dynasty over three generations It was a kind of story that if you made it up people wouldn't believe you It was so so outrageous and so many surprising twists and turns Exactly There were some a twists and turns and it is something that you feel like okay this would be a streaming service but no it was reality You know as you were putting it together because it played out in real time right There was so much coverage What is it that you wanted to dig into Well I was really drawn to the story by the figure of Modesto Gucci And I was covering him as a beat reporter amil and his vision to pilot his family company from sort of an over license sort of cheap and brand to a top tier luxury brand He wanted to make Gucci like Italy's Hermes So he wanted it to be sophisticated He wanted excellent craftsmanship He brought in American creative director and designer and his vision was to take it way up market only as he started putting it into place He had cut off the cash cows he had not really given consumers a chance to figure out that there was a new Gucci and the company was just heading towards bankruptcy And as while this was going on Sarah this is Chris There was this whole personal side of the saga where he was going through a divorce from his wife Patricia regini who was played by Lady Gaga in the film and where he was at least for part of the time in a romantic relationship with sherry which is what our stories about Exactly So I realized that I was it's one thing to write a business story for newspaper but I realized that there was there was a narrative here that had the qualities of a novel and it was by blending the family saga with the business story that I felt that this story really really came to life And I interviewed more than a hundred people for the book I talked to family members I talked to current and former employees of Gucci But the one person who slipped away was not easy to go to his girlfriend at the time Well for 7 years her name was sherry McLaughlin She was an American former model who worked in the fashion industry but they actually met sailing in Sardinia as the Italian team was preparing for the 1987 America's cup So sheri didn't want to talk to me at the time that I was right in the book She didn't know what kind of book I was going to write And she ducked my phone calls and didn't answer my emails Well she came out of the woodwork a few months ago and the stills from the movie set started breaking the Internet And I realized as we chatted that she was ready to tell her story All right so you go up to Chris and you go Chris I've got this story Tell me how this came together Well it's actually really exciting to see it out in pursuit today because I was very uncertain whether Bloomberg would be interested in the story because it seemed like such a non Bloomberg story right It was really about the personal side and yet sherry had been at loaded to aside when he was going through some of the toughest fights of his life both with his financial partner investor and with his family He was battling for his uncle's sense of the financial police after him Was an accusation that he hadn't signed his father hadn't signed the shares Giving him the 50% control and sent him escaping and a motorcycle across the border into Switzerland where there was no extradition So he was really really grappling with a lot at the time And she was the person who was out of sight trying to help them the whole time All right question for you Chris Were you like yeah of course I'm interested Well I think maybe Sarah thought it felt a little gossipy for business week and I love Gotham Especially because this gossip really actually informed major news events and also obviously this crime And it was a perspective that Sarah was really excited about hearing and getting out there And sherry's not in the movie her she's not portrayed in the movie because no one knew her story And so this is really like a missing piece of the saga And it also includes all these great details like Sarah mentioned the publicity stills that broke the Internet You might remember the first stills that came out were of Lady.

Kevin Macdonald, Ridley Scott Join Forces For Another 'Life In A Day'
"The world to participate in making a documentary 10 years ago, along with the producer Ridley Scott. He blended scenes that people sent in from their lives on a single day in July, 2010. Now, 10 years later, they're doing it again. Here's NPR's Avery Keathley. It begins with a tempest, lightning flashes and thunder rumbles as we see Mother's going into labor and giving birth starts in the middle of the night. The sequence of babies being born because often that subsequent babies aboard Kevin MacDonald directed the crowd sourced documentary life in a day 2020. It's a sequel to 20 tens life in a day. MacDonald asked people around the world to film their lives for one day and submit it to make a sort of time Capsule of life on July 25th 2020. Received 324,000 videos from 192 countries. Now most notable Equilar scenes and montages follow the days are from early morning through night. Waking, cooking, working, mundane human things. The film follows the guy chasing trains a woman trying to conceive a man with a little white dog choosing these great moments. He's fascinating characters. How do I weave them together to form something that flows and where you sort of feel like you've traveled through? Not just a day, but of all of human experience. The film tracks familiar narrative themes, birth and death, celebration and sorrow, love and loss. But one theme was inescapable in 2020, when we would talk about it in March, we naively thought that maybe lockdowns might be over by July. Producer Jack are but not also produced the original life in a day. I'd always been really keen to know what had become of the people who were in the original film has the pandemic kicked off began to feel like there was an even better reason to revisit it. Suzanne Lucas submitted footage to the original life in a day. She filmed her teenage son, Alexander, not quite wanting to get out of bed. In 2020 Suzanne rolls the camera while watching her clip from 2010. That was my son 10 years ago on the original life in a day I'm going to show you my son now and then I turn the camera. To my son's earn and where I have his everything set up and said, This is my son. Now he's here with me forever home. Was gonna be harder than I thought. Suzanne son, Alexander Lucas died in February 2020 due to complications from covert 19. The film is dedicated to him when you lose your child, and he was my only child, your mind is very cruel to you sometimes, but I had this fear that if anything happened to me, then he would really be gone forever because it's the memories that I have that keep him here now. And by having this film this beautiful film of the year 2020 dedicated to Alexander. At least now I know He'll be remembered even when I'm not here anymore. It gave me a sense of peace that I never thought I would have. Director Kevin MacDonald reflects on the days emotional range. The roller coaster of this film is the kind of rollercoaster of life we know It's gonna have difficult moments. We know it's gonna have dark bits, but Also it can have and for most people does have moments of incredible happiness. Enjoy life in a day. 2020 reminds us that no matter the year each day holds promise. Every cutely

Lawrence Wright on Researching a (Fictional) Pandemic
"Last book was God Save Texas Nonfiction. I believe there was a play in between and now this just curious how you go from one project to the next and and forgive me if I skipped a project that may have been in between as well years ago. I made a resolution that I would only do things that were important or fun. Was you know the state of confusion about what I wanted to do with my life and I thought I as a journalist I like to be on the important stories of the day but I also realized that it didn't want to give up things that really joyful and so those are the polls stars of my career and I think is sort of understandable that I would now be working on a musical but you know if you take those as your pulse stars in. I think you can have a pretty interesting career. Are they ever important and fun? Yes this book was. I know it sounds you know is is is a rather bleak book but I really had a wonderful time researching it and going into the world of of public health in all these swashbuckling intellectuals I just admire them so much so I I really had a good time working on this book. All right I'm going to cut to the chase and let everyone know who doesn't know already that the end of October is a fictional story of a pandemic so before we get into more about it and want to go back again to the origin stories. You've said that the director Ridley Scott Asks you a question after Reading Cormac. Mccarthy's the road and that that was your inspiration. What was the question? And when did he ask this? When were you sitting around with Ridley Scott talking about this? This was a decade ago and he is questioned was what happened because Cormac didn't say anything. About what event or of nature had brought civilization to heal? So I started thinking about what could do that and of course I thought about nuclear war but I was a young reporter covering diseases out of the Center for Disease Control in one thousand nine hundred ninety six. There's a swine flu outbreak in the legionnaires disease and I had become enchanted with that world and the courage and ingenuity of the people that I found there and so I thought it'd be an interesting place to find a hero because I felt that those people that I met were really heroic and that disease had been underestimated as a problem for our society in modern times. So Ridley Scott ask you this question about a decade ago and you had been thinking about it because you had reported on disease over the years. When did you actually start working on? This novel really never made the movie. So like Mr Destiny of so many projects in Hollywood and about in two thousand seventeen. I've been thinking about this story. Still is in my mind so I decided I would go back and work on work on. It is a knock and this time I would dive into the research even more deeply and let the story emerged more naturally rather than cinematic -ly so that's that's how the novel got started. You are such a master your master of many forms but I love your nonfiction so much. There's so much research material in this. Did you think maybe there should be nonfiction? I DID CONSIDER WRITING ABOUT MORE DISEASES. But you know it already had an imaginary character and a world which it was said. I got attracted to the idea of tempting it as a novel. It seemed a challenge for me and I wanted to see if I could do it. Who WAS THAT IMAGINARY CHARACTER? Will the name of my heroes? Henry Parsons in the late. Nineteenth Century in England. There was another influence of outbreak and a young epidemiologist named Henry. Parsons was the first to prove that it was caused by contagion and not by my asthma's in the environment you know. He's totally forgotten figure. But I decided to tip my hat to him and name my character. Henry Parsons he is a man whose life has been touched rather savagely by disease and works out of the Center for Disease. Control where I had done by early reporting. And he's an epidemiologist who's confronted many diseases in the past but has always known that there was one awaiting him. There was going to be the big challenge so the CDC is in Atlanta Georgia and the United States. But this novel the breakout begins elsewhere. You have it really kind of take hold in Mecca. Why did you choose to do that? We'll after nine eleven when I was working on my book looming tower. The Saudis wouldn't let me in as a reporter so I got a job. I was mentoring young reporters at the Saudi Gazette in Jeddah which had bin Laden's hometown and one of my very first jobs was to supervise their coverage of the Hodge and I was was not allowed to go to Mecca myself but I was in communication every day with my reporters and I was very struck at the time about the hazard of gathering of people in one place from all over the world and having every year some disease arises sometimes more than one and there's an epidemic in Mecca and then people get on airplanes and they fly home. Well you know what if it was something really dangerous suppose it was like the nineteen eighteen flu. That was in my gosh even when I was living in Saudi Arabia enter the CA-. Golly flew right. This is her fictional virus. Tell us about that sickness. And how did you come to describe what this flu would be like? Why a flu even influence is unconquered. It's the great killer it every year. We lose maybe you know fifty thousand people to influence a very dangerous disease. Clever in a way in that has always mutating. And you never know what's going to show up the next year. I mean the the fluid self that comes every year is sort of a descendant of that nineteen eighteen original Spanish flu right. That's correct Pamela. We're right now. The seasonal flu is H. One IN ONE. Which is the strain that killed between fifty and one hundred million people in nineteen eighteen? And I said as a young reporter I had done stories out of the Center for Disease Control but one of them in nineteen seventy six was a sudden outbreak of h one in one which is what public health officials had been dreading their entire careers. And it was a young man of recruit in Army Base Fort Dix in New Jersey. David Lewis suddenly after a Long March. Came back to the barracks in died. They examined the tissues discovered. It was h one n one Tremendous panic took place in. I win all over talking to people in Fort Dix and enter the members of David Lewis is family and so on the big mystery was he was the only one who died and yet you know there was this in national vaccine program and it became kind of catastrophe for Gerald Ford because people got sick from the vaccine. It was just a total mess but hanging over this was peculiar FAC fifty. Two hundred million people died you know a century ago and then only one and then in two thousand nine to the H. One in one came back as a pandemic and it was more like seasonal flu in his still with us but the the question I had was what would happen if something like the nineteen eighteen flu brand new novel virus came into our culture. How would we handle? It will be better prepared than our ancestors were in one thousand nine hundred eighteen and so the the flu that I create Congolese is really modeled on that. Old Virus one that came out in nineteen eighteen. It was also a hemorrhagic fever. You know there was no resistance to it in the population. I actually created a template that is based on the progress of the flu in Nineteen Eighteen. So in the novel the fluid advances across the globe. It pretty much mirrors. What was going on in nineteen eighteen?
Quarantine Chat with the Reel Screeners
"I have been I literally about fifteen twenty minutes ago watched the last episode of the Second Season of altered carbon which was released about a month ago or so on Netflix But I hadn't seen the first season so I spent a long time watching the first season. The second season finally finished it and man This is such a dense and such a layered Show it's a show that demands your undivided attention. It's a show that is It I liked the first season better than the second season. I have to say Agreem- you've seen you've seen the first season troy right. Yeah I really liked the per season the second season wasn't as compelling for me. I about halfway through it and if I don't finish it I'M NOT GONNA be upset so it was thinking about this. You know It's a lot. It was a lot to think about in just twenty minutes and I came up with you know the the reason I think the first season is stronger is because it has a lot more intrigue and things to discover This is a show that has a lot of twists and turns. And I like it for that reason So it's it's think think I like the first season to like Ridley Scott Particularly like blade runner and alien and then the second season is GonNa like in. The second season is more like a. Wachowski which house key brothers with like the Matrix. Although both seasons have you know characteristics or tones that you know we can compare to the Matrix but basically it's a Scifi show There's also anime. Anime influences in there A lot of ghost in the shell and so the premise of the show. For those of you that have not seen it Basically in the future Every human who was born can download their consciousness into a little chip that they call stack. And so basically you never die because as long as that stack is okay you you can just be put into a different body. Which in the show they call sleeves and it's a show about power struggles in. It's like it's like a detective story as well. And it has some film war elements In the new season in the second season Anthony Mackie who plays Falcon in the avengers? A key plays the main character. Takeshi batch. is his name Good acting all throughout a solid a storyline. The second season just falls kinda short for me a little bit because it just got a little convoluted and it's just really hard to follow at times because there's so much information and that's my my feeling about it but overall if you're a Scifi fan and you like the Matrix and you like you know really Scott Material James Cameron stuff. You should watch altered carbon in my opinion the I think the I think the second season. Kinda has that sophomore slumping. The first season is grabs you. Because it's all new. This is stuff you haven't seen before and then the second season you're already use that stuff that the interest in the first season so the second season asked to really step it up keep that same level of excitement and Like you said I mean the second season great acting cinematography was was good. It just is not a new concept commanding anymore. And I'm just Kinda Ma- about the second season I was that made me. They wrote themselves into a corner or anything. Like maybe over thinking it and trying to be a little too crazy. I think it's just more of the same from the first season and it just it doesn't look raise. The bar from the first season is just as good as the first season but the first season was groundbreaking heard exactly. I think it's just like rehashing. The first and then again I just felt like there was more to look forward to like more surprises. The twist and turns were like more. I Dunno engaging I guess an an and I think that the second season followed the love story a little too much. There's a love story at the center of the second season and dine those love stories hidden away the action fat. It's just that it wasn't the bogus of the first one. As much I guess as as it was the second season and I think that kind of detracted from other fun aspects for me. But that's just the way I felt anyway that in this whole thing with the sleeves It can be the same character played by a different actor. Sometimes that's hard to follow from season to season because you went from you know. I can't remember the actor from the first season to Anthony. Mackie completely different. Look but in your mind you have to make that connection the same guy from the same guy. Yeah so the actor in the first season was played by Joel Kinman But yeah like that's another point. That's a very good point because you have the same personality the same mind but in a different body and that happens a lot so you. It's hard to keep track of okay. No very cerebral. You had to pay attention while you're watching it. In fact had told me yesterday he was like it's one of those shows where you know like the Matrix you have to be stuck to every single word or else you're gonNA something vinyl. Yes yes but you know what overall I liked it I I gotta say that I enjoyed it. I enjoyed it overall. But anyway if you've already watched everything else on that flicks you go ahead and watch that second season the first season definitely you should watch

"Most iconic images from the people who created them this and many more from rob McCallum films. One more half hour to go right here on the PC multi-diverse continuing on the video game feel my friend. I wanted to go ahead and talk to you about this. We both headed on our minds when we're deeming back and forth about what we're GonNa talk about for tonight. Show and that is game. Stop in the world of a pandemic or viral pandemic now. A lot of these governors in various states are talking about lockdowns of major portions. I mean going through it right now with with California governor is doing and and to an extent. Our governor here in Nevada has done the same thing as well to pretty much the same extent. I wanted to go ahead and talk to you. About what game. Stop is thinking of this one time. Because it's inferred quite strongly that only essential stores and essential businesses. Stay Open during this period and game. Stop sent memos onto his boys and stating that it is an essential business for this time. I for serving the gaming needs the gaming public out there. I know we also have a great affinity for one of our good friends. Douglas Hoy who is a small business owner of a tremendous game store here in the Las Vegas area in fact to game stores here in Las Vegas area in Richardson Games. He is also suffering through this crisis as well as a small business owner and I have a lot of respect and mad props form and he's trying to understand this essential business part as well. He's staying open limited hours but he's doing it in a smarter fashion. He's doing drive through business. Drive up you go ahead. You Wanna go ahead and buy something you go ahead and coordinated via DM's via phone calls he coordinated with you. He comes out. He brings a product out like the very little transactions. They're very little handling and things of that nature. You Wanna go ahead trade something in similar that affect as well. I think he's handling the best way again because he's trying to do what he can to make. Sure his business stays afloat and also providing mail service delivery service to gamers out there not only in the city not only the state but across the country. He you can go ahead or stuff through him through that as well and he'll send it to you so he's trying to handle it more responsible and I give him props for that. I know game stop has really tried to set up as no central business at this point in time so the question goes out to you. My friend are game stores video game stores as much as we love to say and I have all respected the world for Gamers for thinking that our game stores essential in a pandemic crisis like this. They're not essential but I think there needed if that makes sense because a lot of us are sitting at home I respect what Doug trying to do with the whole you know limiting five people in the store at time. If you know what you want you can do a little like drive through type thing and I like. I really respect that. I think that game stores are needed. I don't I wouldn't label them as essential game. Stop is really fighting. You know game stop closes down there done. You know they're going to be out of business here before this whole virus thing is is handled so I can see why they're fighting so hard but here's the thing game solves counting on all these people flooding into their business to buy things to play during this Corentin. But there's not a lot of people going in there anyways because despite the fact that you know they have good use game sales you can still find a lot of these games a lot. Cheaper OTHER PLACES. So you know the big question here is. Is it going to be this? Whole like stink. That they're putting up. Is it going to be worth it in the end you know? And are they actually only a customers? Is it really going to affect anything if if they stay open? Because they're they're open before the corona virus saying hit and they were still losing money. So what you know. What is the point of all of this? I agree with you my friend. Doug is trying to go ahead and do it again to stay afloat and try and take care of his customers have mad respect for him as well on that like you said. He's limiting store to five customers at the time. He's making sure as much sanitizer and he's using gloves. It's trying to keep everything sanitize much as possible wiping down surfaces hourly as needed. And he's doing everything he can to try and accommodate customers wishes plus like coordinating a lot of orders through the phone through the D amps. Doing pickup service sending stuff out via the mail sending stuff out for orders not only in the city but also to the country. So you know. He's doing his can't as an owner to try and survive in this time game. Stop does seem to be on the same page game. Stop doesn't have any type of you know real forethought into what they're doing and they're not accommodating customers in that same fashion and if they are they're doing it on a case by case basis but there's no real memo that says hey in this time of need we're going to be going head and limiting you know our practice into way but we're still open for business. I don't think game stores are essential. I'M GONNA say it right down. I know people are GonNa get mad at for me and I'm not trying to go ahead. It causes uproar. But you as far as what? You're saying video games are needed as an escape. I won't disagree with you there but with the digital services that are out there that they're you know we talked about with Doom Eternal. An animal crossing nuke in new horizons. It's it's most a lot of these games are very accessible now at this point to just download from your home even with five people even with you know just two people you put yourself at risk of transmitting the disease and things of that nature. So it's hard for people to go ahead and say this is essential when there's so many other things out there like gas food the basics that we need that are essential. You know obviously the people. They're working so hard in the medical industry right now. We those are essential things right now. I cannot save video game stores or other similar escapes or leisures are still something that you can deem a central now. Is it something that you can try and limit yourself to? Yes I know. Doug at retrospect games his trying every bit as hard to do that and try and survive at the same time. Like I said we give him all the props the world for that but I cannot say that game stores are essential despondent time at game stop is not doing anything in order to go ahead and benefit their customers by the way they're handling this right again. I mean I don't think game stores are essential but I think they're you know they're kind of needed but you know with game stop. There's not really any reason for them to be open right. They're just finding themselves in the midst of scandal after scandal after scandal within the gaming industry. And it's like why do you want to say it and I gave with Doug Right Doug small business owners. His livelihood is here right. And he's like he's part of the community like he really people. Love retrospect against people love Doug people love going in there chatting games like it's kind of it's own community whereas game stop is just. There's no reason for them to be open. There's no game. Stop Dot Com. If they report that more take care of that and we would alleviate at least a tiny bit of their issues. Yeah Yeah but they're not part of the community right. People don't really like them that much. You know they go on there too by the US game sales with that's really all. They got going for him right now so I mean I'm having a hard time seeing why game stop shoot remain open and it's weird because I from one hundred. Thank law enforcement is going in there trying to get them to shut down. They're handing out flyers but how long until that's going to fly you know is that going. Are they going to finally start enforcing that you guys got to shut your doors? I Dunno especially here in California. You know it's like what does that mean and target you can still go into targets and walmarts and buy video. Games are still getting their shipments when they do get them. But you know I don't see any reason for game stop to stay open but I don't want people going to target or Walmart just to go ahead and pick up a game of put themselves at risk you know. It doesn't seem to me that that's worth it. I mean if you're going to pick up food and then just do me turtles right there. Yeah yes I agree. I totally agree with that. But you know people you know especially with the impolite people go into the grocery stores when people aren't doing any like calculated buying of anything. They're buying whatever they can get their hands on. So they're not practicing social distancing. Learn very well this. We know they're not and judging by that behavior telling someone they can't go to target to buy a video game is not going to do anything because the first thing they're going to do is go to target to buy a video game so it's just it's I don't know I don't think you can stop it but you know. What do I know again if I was in doug shoes I'd be doing the same thing trying to go ahead and whatever I can to help my customers out trying to go ahead and create any business. I can because that is my livelihood so again. He's in a tough position and I understand what he you know he'd be going through at this time. So you gotTa do what you gotTa do. And he's trying to minimize the risk as best he can. At least he's making an effort at least he's making the effort to go ahead and protect consumers and also protect himself his wife Nicole and also they're young child. He's trying to do what he can to minimize the risks while still trying to survive with his business going forward because one of his locations remaining open. It's not being allowed to be open. So he is just doing this from one business to try and keep both as open going forward so I can't say I blame them. I would do the same thing. And I appreciate his efforts for trying to minimize those risks when it comes to what game stop is doing they're just being brazen and it just don't seem to give them. Yeah I agree and like I said. There's no reason for them to stay open they bear. I mean if you look at you go into their store. They barely even sell video games. They're mostly just a collectible store. These days with a couple walls of video game so it's not that there is no reason for them to stay open. They're just trying to fight. The you know the sinking of their ship. But I wonder like Reggie Fil aims. I know he's on their board. I wonder what he has to say about all this and what kind of weight he carries. That's that's the thing going forward. Are we going to start seeing his influence in there because it comes out of very dire time or ready for game stop and we've talked about their practices on recent episodes last year? We also talked about their financial losses which are huge and would probably put out many other businesses. If it wasn't the leading video game store in North America and beyond so to me it's a point where game stop has to make I think a new focus on exactly what they're doing for their customers. Do they actually have the best interests of their customers? And also their employees who sit there and put themselves at risk because they've got such a wide open policy at this point comparative to other stores and calling themselves essential. I think is I just think it's mistaken? I don't WanNa be mean I don't want to try and say this you know you know haphazardly. But saying a game store is essential is not an repeat this again. I'm probably a lot of Ford is not essential is something that's needed. As a way to escape I agree with you. I've a tendency to agree with you. But if you're handling of the way Doug it's interesting games. I think that's preferred but if you're handling the way the game stop is. I think that's a mistake that could affect many people both customers and employees very badly in the near future. What are your thoughts out there on the way game stop is handling the current Democrats? We'd love to hear thoughts on that because it's a hot button issue. Our video game stores essential in this pandemic crisis. We want to hear your thoughts. Pop Culture Cosmos at Yahoo Dot Com also humanity media game source and also pop culture cosmos on instagram twitter and facebook as well. Hey Adam Thomas yes Thomas Mariani. There are pockets of bad movies. Yeah and also podcasts. That good movies. Yeah well what if we can cover both listen to double edged bill where a randoms look at getting gang over double feature is picked.
Commemoration of 'Blade Runner'
"Welcome to the frame. I'm John Horn nearly four decades ago. The Ridley Scott Film Blade runner was released used. The movie is set in Los Angeles in November two thousand nineteen and to commemorate the date micro the arts and entertainment editor at our website site. Elliot's put together an oral history of the nineteen eighty two film. I spoke with Mike about the physical production of the movie and why it's nighttime setting was integral to its filming. Mike began by briefly. recapping the movie. You know it's a fascinating story. A set in twenty one thousand nine Los Angeles the Far Future. Sure and they're trying to hunt down. androids have gone bad. Basically now making blade runner was not an easy process. And if you notice anything about bladerunner owner it's almost always at night. So why is the nighttime look of blade runner central to the story when the big reasons was because they shot and most of it on the back. Lot Of Warner Brothers you know. They had looked at scouting in Chicago and New York. And we're talking about maybe shooting in Hong Kong or Mexico City. Whatever the cities they had in mind but I ended up just because of cost now working outs and so they said we're gonNA shoot this on the back? Lot and Ridley Scott's big idea was well we make night you know you never know what's beyond the edges of this. This shot you especially. They also add that filter of rain in every scene. So that sorta covered up things and you could imagine a bigger world out there than just a few streets on a back lot doc. I WANNA play a clip from Sydney mead. Who is the visual futurist for the movie where he talks about the inspiration and coming up with the design of the city in the film primarily from Chicago Chicago and New York because they're grid cities and New York already had buildings? You know over one thousand feet. Well they embark stayed building and So I thought well well let's add another thousand feet or so so I had this vision of these incredible tall buildings. So he's talking about the kind of the verticality of the city. How how do they end up creating that? Because you can't really build thousand foot tall buildings you know this was before we had huge. CGI level is just models. They were doing specially the famous opening in the movie. Show these smokestacks and that's not really how future Los Angeles turned out. But they created this using small models and look. I think having having that dark shot at night look having the rain covering things up. You never really know this. The seems within and creates an amazing visual a fair and when the film is coming together there's a a lot of conversation about acid rain and pending environmental problems. Obviously the world is a much more dangerous place today owing to climate change so in terms of like the setup for the story it feels like they were really right about the degradation of the planet. And how that would affect the story that they were telling you know. They really were thinking about the environment. It was a different problem though because acid rain. You know it's something that doesn't get talked about in the same way because that isn't the issue we're facing now. We just found ourselves with many any other environmental problems over the years But the talking to the screenwriter Hampton. fancher the thing that really drove him in writing the screenplay was concerned about the environment he really wanted to focus on that That's the reason why you have. That constant rain throughout the film blade runner became very iconic part of that film and It sort of gives a little bit of weight to what you're seeing in this sort of crazy science fiction film. We're talking with Mike Rowe about blade runner and its depiction of Los Angeles in two thousand. Nineteen it's fair to say that the finishing of the movie did not go smoothly. In fact Ridley Scott. The director lost the film and Harrison. Ford was called back back to do what we you and I can agree with a terrible narrations so what happened and why Harrison Ford so bad in the narration and that he gives over the movie you know they were already running over budgets from making the sets on the back lot Su Trying to create this big imagination the Ridley Scott had the thing that really really send them over. The edge was there is potentially going to be a director strike from the directors guild. It never ended up happening but they have the shoot two weeks film in one week so they had to pay overtime and shoe basically twenty four seven so instead the rights of the film. Take me from Ridley. Scott's producer. Bud York and broaden his own screenwriter to write narration. Help explain things and basically dumb it down because he didn't think audiences with get it's so Harrison Ford intentionally tanked the he tried to be as boring and stiff as possible But it didn't work because they ended up making it in the movie that made it to theaters in the movie ended up being kind of a bomb at first and yet a gets a new life. So how did blade runner get. Its Own Redo you know it was a film that really Scott. I think really cared about other people worked on it really cared about The Warner Brothers did a showing of a work print of the movie without the narration. And sort of getting people talking and then about ten years later There was a piece in the La Times were they ended up reaching now then helped spur more exciting movie. Directors cut came out without the narration. Eventually the on Blu Ray had the final cut which are released got came out. and Actually Warner Warner Brothers. Actually pay for extra special effects. Finish up never got done in the original no narration. And it's sort of created this thing that everybody is able to love without the bad parts so maybe blade runner wasn't quite right about androids. Maybe it wasn't quite right about flying cars but looking at it today. What do you think that got right about where we are today? I think they did capture the big city feel. That was going to calm. That wasn't quite there yet you know. They're looking at Asian influences. There's a lot of Japan influence it's in the original picture. you know one thing that I talked to some of the creators about that. They felt they really nailed. Was the difference between the sort of class warfare. Talking about like the Rich folks in this world had left the planets and left behind Poor people behind them and so there was love Considering that you know we have still Some some of these issues that we're facing also some of acknowledges still close I talked with Sid Mead About the androids and he was saying he really thinks that we're in maybe ten years. We're going to have androids like they had them blade runner You know he is giving examples of various robots that are already out there these robots join. Exactly look anthropomorphic. But they can. They can jump over a one meter high barrier in motion land and actually do backflips So you never know we might be right around the corner. And you don't know I could be an Android android doing this interview. I assume you are

"ridley scott" Discussed on KLBJ 590AM
"Newsradio KLBJ five ninety AM and ninety nine point seven FM presents the Jeff Ward and head Clinton show. Whenever to our little show. Pretty cool. It's most people can relate. It's been the thing to take away. In fact, it's been more memorable than the games themselves. I have a list of what has been classified as the best Super Bowl commercials of all time, and they sort of scoring systems for this stuff. There's somebody think everybody can say off the top of their head. They remember this one this one that one eight other. Here's two bits of advertising trivia from the Super Bowl number one. It is is a master lock master lock. I know most people remember the ad that shows the bullet slow motion hitting the lock. Do you know that company? That was their entire advertising. Roger for the year at one spot grass. Yeah, they ran at once. That's it master lock I love that master lock that thing that thing was had been running for years. And then the the Coca Cola agile on. I remember I remember the coke feel-good mean, Joe Greene. I'd like to teach the world is saying. I like those blah. But but but people remember though, blah, blah. I know let's see so others. Another one on this list is they're rated one through looks like one through twenty five the one thousand nine hundred eighty four and this is number three. I think three on the list. Yeah. Nineteen Eighty-four was the name of the ad. And I think I've mentioned this before. So when people this is apple. And shows the Nordic woman with the big ham. Yeah. Oh, yeah. The chanting monks. Yeah. And it said, I believe the phrase was this is all on the George Orwell thing. The big phrase was when nineteen Eighty-four will won't be like nineteen Eighty-four something like that. She throws the hammer in there. And then when people were were asked later about the ad many said they'd seen it three or four and five times run. Once once only once. Yeah, there's a great book written by guy who who was running the ad as did the ad talk. The book was about working with Steve Jobs. There's pretty interesting. So that was number three. It says Apple's iconic introduction to the MacIntosh memory. I remember that computer never that thing. Look like a toaster. Stick those distant there. I can't imagine looking at that screen now. Yeah. Yeah. That says icon introduction to the MacIntosh personal computer forever changed the nature of Super Bowl commercials director by directed by. Ridley Scott Ridley Scott and in one thousand nine hundred eighty four I don't know how big Ridley Scott was the one minute ad featured a drab dystopia in society modeled on George Orwell's nineteen Eighty-four lone runner chased by what can be presumed to be thought police approaches a Telefe telescreen filled with the face of big brother like figures droning on about the virtues of conformity that was supposed to be IBM. Yeah. As the leader's speech hits crescendo, the runner hurls a sledgehammer right into the screen causing it to erupt and shocked the crowd. Pretty effective people said they saw it a lot. Yeah. Ridley scott. Ridley scott. I liked the Doritos ads to. That's funny. You are such a cynical. I am asked about that kind of stuff. You know? Are you are you are you have to have your highbrow what apple than this? And I like the Coca Cola the Budweiser Doritos. Why don't like yeah. I don't like my deal too. I don't like to use animals and ads that they could says you're not creative. That's an interesting point. I just think it's. This says you don't have a better way to sell your products. You should have a better way to sell your product. Would that be the advertising north thing? Well, it's I just find a kind of schlocky. You know, how to sell your product or don't you shoulder animals or animal don't like CEOs, and as I don't like kids in ads, and I don't like animals in your ads. Don't like animals. I'm just saying it tells me, you don't know how to sell your product. I've always thought if you have CEOs the CEO's ego gets in the play that. Oh, I can do this ad. I can speak for my company and right do that. Okay. So what scored is the highest rated ads of all time would be one thousand nine hundred seventy nine. Hey, kid catch. Joe green? Joe green Joe green? Then there was Wendy's. Where's the beef the nineteen Eighty-four, which was pretty brilliant? He's no longer with us. She'd be about one hundred twenty seven is Wendy's even with us. Wendy's is still around. Sure. Okay. Then there's apple nineteen Eighty-four then Anheuser Busch bud bowl nine thousand nine hundred eighty nine and other years. Pepsi the best Pepsi ad ever nineteen Ninety-two twelve what? Cindy crawford. Oh, yeah. Yeah. And they're one where their daughter now and our son both their daughter insider models. I think her daughter was in one last year nineteen Ninety-three showdown. Mcdonald's. I thought this was pretty great. I don't remember Larry Bird imagine, Joey. Yeah. In a game of horse, and then they end up on the rafters of the Bill. That's right. I have brilliant commercial. That was in ninety three let's say then there is. Bud wise, her ninety four. That was the part the director. The powers to care did those ads. Really? Yeah. The Nissan pigeons nineteen ninety seven which was a top gun parody. Don't remember that again animals monster dot com, which I thought was brilliant one thousand nine nine when I grow up, right? Oh, that's a good spot. See one of my favorite ads was courses over the top. The guy who connected the jumper cables to his nipples. It was called amp. Energy drink go to pick up the guy can exit nipples. It's completely four. He's like E trade the monkeys of two thousand I like that one too. This was the high the dot com. Bubble. He traded it some great work through the years EDS, the cat herders of two thousand hated that EDS was acquired by Hewlett Packard, by the way, the clydesdales respect two thousand one. Let's see. I don't remember this. Reebok Terry Tate office linebacker. Reebok running everybody. I don't know things have changed since then. Fed ex did a castaway spin off in two thousand remember that one. Well done and then ameriquest at a surprise to this is the next one in the mirror crested surprise surprised. Enter two thousand five so. Have you seen the one that jar ready been out the Stella Artois, beer one? Remember the wall at last year. Am I remember that wasn't there?
