"That robert Directed this but after you see robert rodriguez name on the on this on the first card up with directed by you just like oh they explain so much like it explains this carnage of storm trooper. You know just dying left and right and just getting their faces smashed at every turn and it was like every rod robert. Well tell me about that. How does it. How does that explain it. Robert rodriguez is just known for like this gritty action type of movie. You know he just he just puts people in these the impossible sequences where you know to vampire hunters to criminals have to battle their way out of a vampire saloon from dusk till dawn. And it's like you know i. It's these impossible situations that he puts people in. Wasn't george clooney in that. Yeah george clooney and quentin tarantino. Yeah yeah the movie was amazing. I love that movie so much. So yeah so. It's a robert rodriguez film basically for an hour and it's got bubba fat saying i'm bubba fat like multiple times. When he threw back the hood. My first thought was. Is that bob a fat. Like i thought he was dead. You know like man. I just like. Yeah what i love in the in the in the season is they're given the nod to all the original star wars trilogy fans. Yeah and they're saying like you know what we've ignored you in all of this stuff and we're bringing you right back full circle we're gonna we're going to bring everybody back. Everybody's you know not everybody. Obviously but all these these act- actors characters like they brought luke skywalker back with ray and all that and maybe luke skywalker is a big enough character and you need them for the big screen and boba fett might be like more of a minor character. Big enough to be like known and everything because he's the mandalorian you have the mandalorian the one thing. I was disappointed that once he put the helmet on and he starts kicking ass and then you see them later and he has the helmet off again. It's like no man. You gotta leave the helmet on like once it goes wants to armor gets recovered and goes back on. It all needs to be worn always. Yeah it's so funny. I kinda geeked out in the middle when When he when he when he puts the scope on and he targets the ships that are taken off and then he'd leans over to to shoot the rocket off his jet pack. You know it's the raw. I was aiming for the other one the other one but i keep out over. I turned and i said. Did you know that. The original kenner action figure had a shoot -able rocket out of the maze and it was such a limited series limited release because it was choking hazard so they had to stop production on it and the only produced like thousand of them. So if you have one that has the sheet of rocket in its original packaging. It's worth thousands and thousands of dollars and and was basically like shut up nerd way too nerdy nerdy but at the same time things like that. Shockingly outrageous amounts of money. Yeah you just have to find the people pay to pay their -rageous amounts of money. All right enough mandalorian talked for the week. more nightfall. Were still watching that show and you know. I started talking about that last sunday. Go back and listen if you listen. It's great show. It's like i said it's it's looks like the history channel show overall entertaining. I like the the time period. Around twelve hundred rate in the medieval era and the mandalorian. And that's all we've been watching. How about you definitely mandalorian. That was our well. I think i think it was like okay..

"I guess the ceiling for this game that it could consistently be at game that people will go back to your out so i want to hear your thoughts cyberpunk twenty seventy seven because we could be on the verge of a major game release or possibly a major game failure as well. You know with cyberpunk. It's funny because i've been talking to a lot of people who are really excited about it and they've all sudden become berry like pessimistic. Because they're like. I really wanna play this game and sounds awesome. They play video games for escape. And they look at the world that cyberpunk takes place in and is not really escape right because it's so dark it kind of is reminiscent of what we have going on today. So they're like. I really hope that this game pools me in and like makes me forget about things but they're also concerned that it's going to make them think about our own circumstances and it's funny to see how quick that coin flip cosby what we're really high up when it was announced right and so i mean you know back to your point with this. Possibly being the big game release of the past several years. Like i'm excited to play. I do wanna plate. i'm still playing assassin's creed ball khawla. But now i'm open to sit down and by some time to decipher punk over the next few weeks but this is also like what if the game is bad. You know what if it's like it's got so much rest on its shoulders. And so many people depending on it that if it has like one bad review it could very well be detrimental to the game. We'll talk about that more coming up on the pc melchior's on friday or when josh ni- reconvened here next week what are your thoughts on. Cyberpunk twenty seventy seven. Are you excited to go ahead.

"You and i talked about this. I mean the tattooing episode alone was just like almost turning me off the initial episode. You know really didn't draw me in but there were some real high highs in in those episodes and and by the end it really got me hooked this year so much of it has been like a western okay. This is his adventure for this week. This is adventure for this week. This adventure for those. We put their so entertaining these adventures and are so well crafted. I've had a just a great time watching the mandalorian throughout this year it's been more of an even keel and this tops it all because i think it is going to have to see it again just to make sure but this is one of the best episodes that they've ever done if not the best so before we go ahead and hit the brake my friend. I just wanted to get your thoughts one last time on what this could do. Robert rodriguez as far as reinstating him because all the surprises all the things that were put in there in this truncated episode. It was short but it was very sweet. Yeah well i mean you know. This episode is as good as you say it is. Which i i you think about it. The small screen is kind of the perfect place for robert rodriguez. You know it's a chance for them to tell short greedy stories and that's what he does best so i mean if we don't see another mandalorian episode i'd hope to see him in maybe like episode of westworld or raised by wolves or even zimin netflix. Doing something would be real cool. I'm still holy out. Hope for an elite alita battle angel too. But i definitely think that he is talented at egypt's needs to be put in an arena that he's comfortable with whether that's like another predator film or an alien film or you know even moving onto a horror. Movie like a remake of You know some of the old. John carpenter films like that could be a place where he really excels. But i mean if you look at the modern culture of film. There hasn't really been anything. That's done in that light gritty nor action style that he is known for i will hear it at sometimes wonder if that a not at least in a long time so i wondered too if that's maybe one of the reasons that people didn't go to see alita battle angel or maybe they didn't like it was because they didn't like the way was directed but i i think that he's still got a lot left in the tank he just needs the right projects. Ever no my friend. I'm going to throw this out there. About mass effect.

"Obviously the everybody is thinking that not only will be their last of us three because that initially sold extremely well. Despite all the controversies that were rounded and it's being nominated for game awards so it's being very well thought it from a critical standpoint. I know there was a lot of divisiveness amongst the gaming community on it but still it's a great representation of a video game in my opinion. Even though the way that the narrative was laid out there were some things there that people didn't like people were sad as far as the real shocker pun. all shockers that happens in it. But i will say that. He's done an excellent job of driving the last of a series. Now the uncharted series. There's supposedly a new ip that they're working on but also expanding upon the other two original series with the last of us part three. I'm suing. that's gonna come along the way at. What two three years. Down the line and then of course charted five. It's very interesting to see all these movements behind the scenes that these two major game studios so we want to hear your thoughts on this bio and naughty dog. Are you more concerned or more confident. In their games going forward with naughty dog and also as well by aware we want to hear thoughts. Pop culture cosmos at yahoo dot com. My friend the top story is this week. The mandalorian and i've got baby yoda no could congregate. I like baby. Yoda baby yoda again. His series at the top deal this week because in many ways people are talking about this episode. And it's a shorter episode fact. It's the shortest in the series but still by many out there. It's considered one of the best if not the best series and i think it is right there among the best and might actually be my favorite. I might have to see it again just to decide that for sure but it's an excellent episode. It definitely to me. It felt a lot like an old classic star trek episode. the it was built away with structured. So what are your thoughts josh. The man who directed this was none other than robert rodriguez with their all star directors list. It was his turn to direct this and i remarked in the first episode. Ever of the mandalorian. I thought that episode was too short and needed to be fleshed out. But the great thing about the mandalorian is they're allowing the directors to go ahead and decide how long or short they want these episodes. And in this case i thought shorter was better because it did a great job there. I want to hear your thoughts on. Robert rodriguez himself is career. I don't want to say is in a state of flux but alita battle angel people are still deciding whether or not was it. A hit was not a hit. Let's say his career was not going in the greatest direction as far as the number of movies that he was making in this past decade as opposed to his great success in the previous decades sin city on mariachi so many other great films earlier in his career. I wanna hear your thoughts on what this could do to boost. Robert rica's status within the director oriel community. Because i think he's always been a very good director. I just think he's not always been given an dealt the best hand when it comes to projects so i'm glad that the mandalorian is finally redeeming his quality as a director going forward. We'll have you think about it. The mandalorian is kind of like the perfect thing for him because he is someone who is used to telling these annoy style. Stories like look at sin..

Uber is sued over resistance to California 'gig' employment law

Uber is sued over resistance to California 'gig' employment law

"Uber now says it will not reclassify its drivers as employees in California in defiance of a new state law passed this week this law sets out strict rules for when companies labeled their workers as independent contractors rules which Uber and other GIG economy companies companies are widely acknowledged not to meet but uber asserts the new law does not apply to them plans a court fight and his pooling millions of dollars with lift and door dash cash to fund the campaign to ask California voters to decide the matter. Here's marketplace's Megan McCarthy Carino from our workplace culture desk employee status has has some pretty obvious pluses for Uber driver John Naf in Los Angeles. I'm an everyday driver. I spent like five thousand nine hundred something rise despite driving more than full time it currently doesn't have any benefits health insurance in years. I brush my teeth in Boston. Make sure you eat salads everyday securing benefits. It's like healthcare minimum wage and unemployment for drivers like NAF could be a game changer says Harry Campbell who runs the rideshare guy blog the full time drivers who are basically weekly working just like employees without any of the benefits I think they have the most to gain but the majority of drivers on the platforms aren't full-time according to his surveys surveys and data from Uber and lift. They're more like Robert Rodriguez fulltime tax preparer who just drives on the side about twenty hours a week just to unwind. Rodriguez is worried about becoming an employee. He's already gotten a message from lift that they could soon start scheduling shifts or requiring hours something that wouldn't work for him him while there's nothing in the law that would prevent the companies from maintaining flexible work arrangements keeping a large number of infrequent drivers just isn't sustainable sustainable with the increased cost of benefits payroll taxes and social security says Chris Thornberg of beacon economics so you would have to have people working more hours.

"Somebody who feels he doesn't get any respect. And it's usually about this time of the year where the Oscars are out, Spike Lee, we done with this guy. I mean. He finally wants something and he still complaining. What can you do? He certainly a famed director. We'll give him that. He's done some movies that I've enjoyed very much. You know, there's no doubt that he's talented, and he's got this movie called black klansman, and it was up for the best picture award, which I had a real tough time believing that okay? I rented it you all the tube. And I couldn't even get through the whole thing. It just it would. I just thought it was the biggest nothing burger in the world. So I don't say that. Because there was a Spike Lee film. It just did nothing for me. And then when I saw was nominated for best picture, I thought what are they throwing this guy a bone because he just complain so much but anyway. Was up for the best picture award last night. Spike Lee appeared to storm out of the Dolby theatre after it was now this was a surprise the green book won the award. I've seen green book here. It's wonderful. But a lot of people were thinking that was going to pick up the biggie. So, you know, Lee who's by the way, you know, lifelong New York Knicks basketball fan compared the green book win to referee making a wrong. Call. Can you do? I mean, this guy has never ever happy is he? The more. You know, I mean, this was kind of a stunning move to see green book pick that up by the I Caisley. I really good veteran mode that I don't go to movies anymore. I just I for some reason, I just don't I don't have. I don't have anybody go to the movie with ever since my son got married, you know, I don't like going to movies alone. But I found a friend this weekend. And I went to the movies for the first time in years, and I saw this movie called alita battle angel. New Robert Rodriguez. Rodriguez TV Cameron, Phil. Loved it. It's not for everybody know futuristic robots, blah, blah. Blah is great. I had a lot of fun with that movie. But anyway. So after green book was announced the winter, the director you walk back to the back of the auditorium. He eventually got back to his seat in what appeared to be an intense conversation with the writer and the report said, you know, Lee. Turn his back to the stage during the speech now the writer who is sitting behind Lee also declined to applaud the winner as did others who were part of the entourage in the room. Lease up snake bitten backstage. I mean, every time somebody is driving somebody. I lose. But they changed the seating arrangement in nineteen eighty nine. When I got love. It was the same thing that happened. So you know, it was do the right thing lost to driving with daisy. And this movie that one was about a guy driving piano player that was back in nineteen ninety when he lost the driving miss daisy eighty nine is when he got like I said, so I mean, he told the New York magazine years later that when driving miss mother. Won the best picture. He was really hurt really hurt. But he says nobody's talking about driving miss mother. Now. Later. He said he had a number of glasses of champagne was trying to make light of his reaction said, wait a minute. Wait a minute. What reaction? Did you see? What did I do know? I thought it was courtside at the garden. You know, making a reference to yelling at the ref making a bad. Call courtside the world's most famous arena, Madison Square Garden. Yeah. The Knicks coming back this year. You know, trying to blow it all off everything he said about the wind of this movie, which also starred a black actor. Hello, dude. You should be happy about that. Great book. How you say? This guy's name is Shala Ellie. I'm not too. Sure how you say that name. He was also the movie what what is it? What is it? Lizzie Marshall Mahershala. Where they get these names. But Herschel Ali he was also the movie I saw yesterday. Alita battle angel. He plays this African American concert pianist back in the nineteen sixties and Vigo Mortenson Vigo Morton's, great actor, he put on all kinds of weight to portray this driver. I haven't seen the movie, but I I've died to see it and it went three Oscars yesterday cleaning the best supporting actor for Ali a here. He deserved that. One absolute, oh and the best original screenplay, and then it picked up, you know, the best movie. So I mean, this thing has been hailed as a movie to racial tolerance bites maker the stars both black and white critics green book was widely widely loved by a lot of people. But he was also widely criticized as I've been told by many people as being outdated to set of mental. Two full of racial stereotypes. How can you be to set the mental for crying out loud? Now, we did win earlier. What was it for the the best adapted screenplay? I think it was for the white supremacist drama black klansman to me, it was more of a you know, kind of drama comedy. So the the the crowd rose for like a standing ovation, you know, Lee leapt into the arms of the presenter, which was Samuel L Jackson. They're good buddies, even backstage with the press room burst into applause. But you know, the footage of the movie. Also included President Donald Trump following the violent white supremacist protests in Charlottesville. Urging mobilization for the upcoming election who let's be on the right side of history. Make the moral choice between love and hey said Lee, it was given the honorary Oscar I think it was two thousand fifteen let's do the right thing. He says, you know, I had to get that in there. So that's the latest on Spike Lee. In case, you missed his latest antics last night. And I keep even waiting for the Hollywood Logan clock tower to get tired of him. You know, the same thing every year. Just I mean, they may as well play a tape loop at a guy over and over again crying because he didn't win something. He even was a winner last night of a big award. And he's still still complaining. You know? What can you do cypher news update on Cam J? Let's get to it. Here's Erin.

"Twenty percent profit every year in order to make media that is consumable and makes a profit. Like that is what is so frustrating to me about a lot of this stuff is that all of it is driven by the market. It's not driven by the product that you're actually making fair enough. Speaking of the market and making good good products. Lied about angels in theaters soon. Joel. Yeah. Good job. Joel as as somebody who's followed nerd culture for a long time and alita battle angel being one of the first feature-length enemies, I've got to rent because the blockbuster near me actually had it in. That's actually really excited to watch this. So this is an adoption of manga. Now, it's future film from the director and producers Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron respectively. Robert Rodriguez, pretty renowned director spy kids. Yeah. In city. You've forgot spike in Stu did and shark boy and lava girl man, what a what a line to throw desperado just for those listening. I've never heard of it. Yeah. What are you talking about planet terror what? But yeah, I've always been a fan of the show. I mean, so the plot, you know, if you've seen an animate here, or there, you're pretty familiar with it alita is a cyborg with a heart of gold who's lost your memory. She's discovered in a junk yard, but Christoph waltz who then learns to love love in this distortion land of iron city. I believe which is a very final fantasy way. It's like this this joker culture. That collects the scraps from a higher city at it's kind of on a platter above them ages eat and they throw their scraps down. And then the people who live in Neath have to scrape in like a bird. Yeah. Exactly, gobble. It up does only when an and I'm gonna read copy directly for a little bit. Because I I don't I try to stay away from it. But I do like it when it's written like this. It is only when the deadly incorrupt forces that run the city come after a leader that she discovers a clue to her past. She has unique fighting abilities that those in power will stop at nothing to control if you can stay out of their grasp she could be the key to saving her friends her family and the world she's grown to love about bump bump up. Yeah. So well, spike, it's. So yeah. Probably military experiment with amnesia learns to like whip ass. That's mostly what I'm in it for and I'm really curious to see how they translate stuff. There's a there's a future sport called motor ball, which as we know inline skating is coming back here next to now. So yeah, motorable combines both of those things. It's it's brutal. It's inline skating, and it's in the future. So I'm already on board. And this fight scenes to you the original continental lot of that stuff in it, some curious. Yeah, they adapted. I remember do seeing in the they showed that like alley fight scene in its entirety. And they had a clip in it that was like directly from the manga like the little girl like stabbing Italy alita while she's rolling around. It was pretty cool to see. I was like I got it in their neat. You can get tickets now at one seconds. You can get tickets now at alita tickets dot com. That's L L. tickets dot com..

"There's so many times. But especially that scene. I wanted her to go like, yeah. Okay. You don't want the manhandle me every time. I know I get in the car by myself, without your assistance, then. Yeah. Exactly grabbing on. But let go down to just grabbing on to walk over to the car saying get in the car would have been fine. Yeah. No, no matter. How scared I was I would have had to talk shit at some point like. That's really not necessary money that drug deal. They gotta show their story every. They got they got they gotta keep intimidate new. You know, plus Athi MAC, it has to show that they're serious after she'd been seeing new these guys hanging. Over here. It's not that. I don't it's not that. I don't. I thought that I hate the movie. I don't I guess sounds like you do. And I'm I'm surprised to hear all this. No, I'm not I don't I don't hate it. I just that. I think I think it's a gettable. I mean, I think it's just a action film. I saw it is like all right this there's some action here. But I really do feel like that could have been pushed one way or the other. You know with the as I said, and I'm gonna go back. Gina Rodriguez problem with with my with her character is that this just not much done with her just she's just meant to actually just kind of as I say run around scare kind intimidated being pulled around. They don't actually make her. You know, she she doesn't do anything with this guy Lino to play on his emotions, you know. They don't do anything with her to make our wish they had gone pushed to it would've been cool. She would like a big action movie star. She's not even an here. I thought was going to be something where maybe she picked the gun up and done, and and turn into some like, you know, some some feminists of, you know, act genre action heroes. I I liked it. Because it didn't do that. When I first saw the trailer Ford. I thought that was going to be as I okay, this is going to be one of these Robert Rodriguez Tarantino esque things where we go like, what are we doing to action film? But we got a female star. She's going to be a bad ass gonna do all these things that other realm of of possibility and just really exploitive. Tongue-in-cheek? And that was I was actually pleasantly surprised to see it wasn't that. I just I'm not saying I would've taken that taken a feminist empowerment move me movie. I would take a drama. I would take a thriller. But for me, this is just so middle of the road that it's something like if I wash on TV be fine. I'll probably watch all the way through. And I would forget it the next day. It would be I would not remember anything from this movie is just so such generic action film. I mean you've seen. I think you've seen this whole thing. The mole the infiltrator the undercover the rat. Who's who you know, you've seen is done. So many better ways, then not just not gonna make this again. But I'm just saying you see this remade better somewhere down the line. A better version of this film down the line of somehow of of some type. Yeah, give it a rental. You know, it's like I said, not bad. I definitely could not recommend anybody. Go out. And see this though is this is strictly something that needs to be seen pop. It up. On TV, in my opinion. It does that that feel of a telenovela that's been brought to the movies, but sped up to where most of the dramas been cut out. I thought it was pretty well fairly and this time grounded while my okay, I'm with this. So, but then when it gets the shootouts they over the top where I was like, all right? What I just saw. And what I'm seeing right now, they don't fit together that big shootout. I was like all right. This just went full popcorn movie at this point because because nothing happened here should've gone wish it had gone popcorn movie. I wish it pushed him more in pop walling. Yeah, somewhere it doesn't. It doesn't take it to to that level..
