The Horror: Bryce Dallas Howard Was Asked to Lose Weight

"Everybody right now stop what you're doing. Because I just heard something that is so disrespectful and gross and demeaning that I have to talk about it. I have to get this off my chest. Poor little rich girl and famous actress Bryce, Dallas Howard. Ron Howard's daughter. She's now opened up. About the expectations of weight Hollywood has for women. Body weight. She said that right before the filming of Jurassic World Dominion, which is the third installment of the Jurassic World franchise, is anybody still watching this shit? She said she was actually asked to lose weight. I know. I can't believe it either. She said, what being in this third film allow? How do I say this? How do I say this? How do I say this? I've been asked to not use my natural body in cinema. On the third movie, it was actually because there were so many women cast, it was something that the director Colin trevorrow felt very strongly about in terms of protecting me because that conversation came up again. We need to ask Bryce to lose weight. Oh my God. Poor thing. Come on, let me hug you. I'm a hugger. You'll feel better. What's the problem with this? Cinema as she just called it is an art form. The person making the art has an eye for what he or she wants. It's their vision. If they ask you to adopt a French accent for a film, you do it. If you were cast in a film playing a disabled person, you learn how to use an electric wheelchair. You know, you change your hair for movies. You wear prosthetics for movies, you walk differently, talk differently, maybe you might even be asked to perform an uncomfortable love scene. I remember watching her in the first Jurassic World movie where she had to run away and in heels. And I thought, wow, that's really talented. That's hard to do. She still did it. So what is so goddamn bad about being asked to lose some weight?

"I've looked at clouds that way now they only blocked the sun hey rating snow. Folks the headline is we need your help. What do I mean by that? I mean, at least three things by that. Number one, if it's possible for you to get to be part of our studio audience, August 3rd, fourth, and 5th, and 8th, in New York. This week, it starts about 4 o'clock every day. We're taping the late night, the talk show with Eric metaxas. It is a mainstream TV talk show. We don't have time to get into it now, but it's nuts. We've got a lot of mainstream guests. It's going to be a blast. We can't share most of it with you yet. But if you can get there, go to Eric metaxas dot com. You'll see where it says speaking or schedule, whatever and you click on it every day. You can sign up through eventbrite. We'd love you there all four days or just one day. You can bring as many people as you want to sign them up. But this is going to be a wild, fun thing. We need some fun, folks. We need some fun because there's a lot of tough stuff going on. But we want you to be there. Please do what you can. That's number one. Number two, if you follow me on social media, let me just ask you, instead of liking what I put there, would you retweet it or would you share it? Would you share it on Facebook? I'm trying to get a lot of information out. And I don't think I've ever said this before, but a lot of times people will like something. We need to get the word out. We are being suppressed. We know that what we're doing, whether we're being shadow banned. I don't mean to sound like, you know, like chicken little. This is actually, we're not chicken little. Who am I looking for? Oh, the boy who cried wolf. This is actually happening. We need your help, folks, to multiply our message. Everything we put out, it's a struggle. So whatever you can do to help us and speaking of helping us, as you know, every couple of times a year, we try to raise funds for an organization that we think worthy at the top of the list is food for the poor. Food for the poor is an amazing Christian nonprofit relief organization. They go where there is a need. And I just want to tell you, right now, they are helping families who have fled the Ukraine. Now, we don't need to get into the politics of it. These are people that are suffering and we want to show them the love of God. We want to help them, food for the poor. I can't think of anybody that I would trust more to do that. So food for the poor is partnering with a number of Christian organizations, relief organizations, ministry partners, to get food, literal food to these families that have fled their homes. They've left everything behind. If you know anybody who's ever been through anything like this, my parents experienced this kind of thing, it's hellish. And we want to show them the love of God. So I want to ask you simply to call this number to help, or you can just go to the banner, our banner is metaxas talk dot com. That's the radio banner. We want you to give, we want you to give generously. We just want everybody who listens to this program to do what you can. By God's grace, we are able to do something..

"Well, that's part of why we want to do this. But it's very exciting. Now, I just want to say I have to say this. Today is August 4th. Thursday, August 4th. I got word this morning. That one of my best Friends in the world, BJ Weber has gone to be with Jesus. BJ was one of my dearest friends. I loved him. I've known him for it was coming up on 30 years, just one of the dearest friends, and you talk about a servant of God, a man who, many, many, many, many, many, many lives have been changed because of BJ's faithfulness in his calling to share the love of God with everybody. So I just had to say that because I was trying to, you know, talking to my daughter and Suzanne about, you know, why are we so sad? We're not sad because we're BJ is. BJ is in a place that is the definition of joy and glory. We're sad because I think you're confronted with the love of God. When somebody passes into eternity, you come face to face with the ultimate reality, which is so beautiful. The love of God is so beautiful that it breaks your heart and makes you want to cry. It's like a sunset or anything beautiful. Why do we cry? So that's really what's going on. It's not tears of loss, but tears of a kind of a deep joy, the unbearable joy of being aware of God's love and his mercy and so anyway, my friend BJ Weber, one of the great people I have ever known, I just love him and his family, his wife, Sheila, his kids, max, and Rachel. I love them all, and when I got that news this morning, I thought, I just wanted to say something about BJ. He's one of the stalwarts in New York. He has been here for four decades. And anything good happening in New York is probably related to him in one way or the other over the decades, and I'm really not kidding. That's a whole, it's a whole story. Tell another time. All right, before we go, I want to remind you, folks, when people are hurting, God wants us to step up. And so we are doing a campaign with food for the poor. We want you to go to my radio website. It's metaxas talk dot com and click on the banner and do whatever you can do. If you prefer to call, there's a phone number. I'm asking you, please call today. 8 four four 8 6 three hope. Our hearts need to be moved for the suffering of others. There are people. They've been chased out of their homes. They have no food. They're suffering. And let's bring the love of God to them through food for the poor, 8, four, four, 8, 6, three hope, 8, four, four, 8, 6, three hope, 8, four, four, 8, 6, three hope, or as I said, go to metaxas talk dot com. You'll see the banner, but we need your help. They need your help, we're relying on you. We've got a clip. There's some refugees. You just try to imagine if these are your kids or your grandkids who are experiencing the trauma of leaving home, going to some unfamiliar place. This is terrible stuff, but I want to play the clip. Let's play that. What are you gonna do? When there were explosions, we sealed the windows with adhesive tape so that fragments were not hit us. Maybe she's a royal is that us. The thing I miss most in my city right now is my dad, and I really miss his love and care right now. I miss my home. My dad. As long as I don't think about it, I feel very good..

"What can I tell you? What can I tell you? All right. Now before I forget, I want to warn everybody in our two today, we have asked metaxas coming up that's first segment of our two today and we've got a bunch of a bunch of other things. We should probably mention food for the poor. Fundraiser with food for the poor, we're doing in August campaign if you go to metaxas talk dot com and click on the help Ukraine banner. These people are suffering. And I feel that it's our duty to help those who are suffering, who are struggling. We're all going through stuff. We're all going through stuff, but when you've been driven out of your home and you can't feed your kids, that's when you hope somebody out there can help you. So food for the poor, they step up. So they deliver food, water, emergency relief throughout this hemisphere when there's stuff going on in this hemisphere. But when there's something particularly going on overseas, as in this case, as in the case of these folks being chased out of the Ukraine out of Ukraine because the war, they step in. So when we come back, I want to tell you more, but you can go to Eric metaxas, dot com, that's my website for the stuff on the talk show under speaking. And for this, you have to go to metaxas talk dot com. Please go there. Please do something. We are grateful to you. God bless you. And we will be right back. What's the early morning yesterday I was up before the dawn. And I really okay folks we're back. It's Thursday. Now Albin yesterday's show went amazingly well. I have to say, I was really full of gratitude to God for the answered prayers. This is a heart. I mean, well, you and I have worked together for 5 years now, believe it or not. Long time. And I really felt I was up on the stage there with you, but I could tell that you were in the zone and your ad libs, particularly, were really funny. You know, some things are scripted, but you're ad libs. And even the opening monologue, you know, you rehearse it and you don't get the laughs because there's no audience. But when the audience is there, they really love the jokes and all that. But what you would tag on to the jokes and the punchlines, that also got a joke. I got a big laugh because you were, again, you were in the zone. So people have to come to the theater tonight with that. A lot of people assume it's the cocaine, but I'm telling you it's not. No, it's not, 'cause I've seen you on both with and without, you know, but no. It was, yeah. No, I meant I Coke. No, but seriously, it is an amazing experience when you have a live audience there. It does kind of bring your best out, but it was so wonderful. And I just want to thank everybody who was there and everybody who's going to be there tonight and tomorrow. And Monday, you're part of something. When you, I mean, we've been saying this, but we're not blowing smoke folks. This is we're going to take these four episodes and we're going to take them out to networks and syndicators and they will air someplace and we will continue to do this. This is a late night TV talk show. So it's not like what we're doing here, right? We're probably not going to be political. We're probably not going to. It's a mainstream kind of thing. And I just feel we need this in the culture. We need something that a whole family can watch together and not feel like it's going to offend them or embarrass them. And they need to feel like discussions about faith or about traditional values. That kind of stuff has a place in the media landscape. Where is it? It doesn't exist today..

Why Ron Howard Chose to Make New Hollywood Film 'Thirteen Lives'

"Did you choose to make a film like this? Because it really is almost unlike anything that I can think of. Well, thank you. And look, I've been blessed to have decades and decades in the visit and go back to a period that was still quite traditional where a Hollywood movie was a very unique thing. And. Audiences have shifted and changed and it's been very exciting for me and in a way energizing to recognize that change. Part of that is a kind of a globalization and an expectation of what a story can mean, what cinema can mean. And honesty and authenticity, particularly in a movie like this, it's based on real events, is become a standard and an expectation. I wanted to make sure that we push that to its most contemporary sort of limits. And really give audiences, you know, use modern technology and sinema to try to give audiences as much as possible a sense of what it was like to be there, which also means, you know, don't over dramatize. Don't ham it up. Now, in recent years, I've also been working on documentaries, and I have recognized through a lot of the documentary scenes that I've edited together and included in the films. The way people act under duress is often not as hyped up and dramatic as we tend to stage it in movies. And I tried to reflect that in this movie as well.

"Okay. Colin, let me ask you the most basic question. What was the appeal to you in taking on a role like this? Well, one of the most heroic things about John Valentin and indeed many of the other people who were involved in this rescue was their humility. And was the apparent lack of the desire to be perceived as heroes. That they had, which is not just for show, talking to John and spending the hours on FaceTime that I spent with John. And researching all the guys that were involved, the humility was very, very clear and present. And plus, I was very humbled by the magnitude of the story by all the things that pooh was spoken about by the emotional and psychological and cultural importance of what was happening in real time in Thailand and how the Thai people came together. And also to be an actor to be somebody who involves oneself in the artifice of make believe and the attempt in trying to present it as a reality to portray these men of incredible strength and bravery was almost embarrassing. I couldn't be further from the kind of steel that they lived in and that they used and the kinds of psychological strength that they have that they leaned into to save these boys. So all those reasons, and look, it was a great script. It's a beautiful story. I wanted to work with Ron harrod. I'd loved his film since splash and parenthood and what have you. So it was ultimately as much of a no brainer as they ever speak about, you know? Well, it's interesting because I think anybody who's seen the film, you do feel a sense of inadequacy. When you see what these people did, it sort of horrifying and mesmerizing and compelling. And almost humiliating in a way, when you realize what people do for other people, which I guess for the most beautiful thing about it all, sorry, honest to God, because it's a world that we're all living in the same world. And however we feel about the world we're living in, we must recognize the existence of separation and division, which is more prominent now than any of the years I can remember as a 46 year old man. So to have a story that isn't Hollywood eyes, that wasn't created from the imagination of somebody that wants to present a more beautiful world. But was actually for moments in time in Thailand and globally for two weeks in 2018, a beautiful moment, albeit a scary moment to be a human being because the world's attention was focused on the dire need of these 13 people, 12 of which were young kids and one adult. It was an extraordinary thing to see everyone come together. And it just proved in a very practical way that we are at our best when we're considering the well-being of each other. Okay, so that was my interview with Colin Farrell and right now we want to play for you my actual interview with the director Ron Howard here it is. I have to say to you, Ron Howard. I'm in my parents home where I grew up watching you play John boy on the waltons every week. And I want to thank you for your work in that film. You know, I was I wasn't John boy. I was on other shows, and I was against. I was just testing, I was just testing you. I just wanted to play with your head. I was actually paying attention. I was actually listening to your question. But you know, no, but it's true actually, you know, watched you growing up not just on Andy Griffith in this house, but also obviously unhappy days. But what I want to ask you about this film, it made me think of the film that you were in the shootist. The idea that we have made films once upon a time with characters like John Wayne and obviously Jimmy Stewart, whom you were privileged to work with at such a young age. But I think in that film that you were in. It's almost surreal to me that you were with them in a film. But I think that film and I think of the film 13 lives that you have just made and how almost astonishingly different they are..

"Did a junket for the film 13 lives directed by Ron Howard, one of the stars Colin Farrell and others were my first interview. We're going to play that for you right now. My name is Eric metaxas. I'm the host of the Eric metaxas show. I think pretty obvious. Good to see all of you. And I've got some basic questions. I want you to pay close attention. These are going to be tough, hard hitting journalistic questions. Now, pooh, is that your name? My name, yes, sir. What was your relationship to the are you are you tied? That's my first time, yes. I thought so. What was your relationship to this story as it was unfolding in real time? In other words, while this is happening in Thailand, the whole world's paying attention. But as somebody who is tie, what were you thinking at the time? Obviously you weren't thinking you're going to be in a film about this in a few years or did that cross your mind? No. I think you answered already. It's the fact that I am tying. And this is a very cultural thing. We are a people that love to help one another. And when this situation happened, this is what we would do. I wanted to help. But like I mentioned before, I don't know how to dive. I could go up and cook for them because I do have a restaurant. I would take the time out to do that. But there were a lot of people there already, so it's best I say out of the way. So like many others, we just keep up with the news. And wish her the best. And also the best. It was a very it made you closer to your friends and your family and your loved ones because like I said also I have four kids and if one of my kids was sucking there at the time, lord, I don't know what I would do. And I would end up thanking all these divers and everybody who would be there to help them as it turned out to be that these guys start up and help the tight children.

All right, we'll be right back and Ron Howard and Yeti yada yada. My my name in case you haven't been paying attention. The Biden administration has caused a financial crisis and they have no clue how to fix it. Oil prices have skyrocketed and when oil prices go up, the cost of transportation and shipping spikes leading the prices of goods to rise.

"ron howard" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show

"When I interviewed him, whenever I am confronted with somebody in whom I am somewhat well, I would say of whom I am in somewhat in awe, I tend to joke around because, you know, when I interviewed when I spoke to clarence Thomas on the phone, when I met Woody Allen, when I interviewed Mel Gibson, I always got to start out with a joke kind of for my mental health. I got a joke my way through it. So with Ron Howard, most people know a lot of people know that in the 70s, he was the star of happy days, you know, with fonzie, Arthur funds are really, it was just this celebration of the 1950s, which was a sitcom on ABC in the 70s. And so I watched it growing up. And there was another show that was pretty famous in the 70s on another network, and it was called the waltons, who was huge. So the star of that show was John boy, John boy Walton, who was the actor, Richard Thomas. So in my interview with Ron Howard, I open it up, just to knock him off of his balance. I opened up by saying, Ron, I'm interviewing you from my parents home, my childhood home where I grew up, which is true, because it was last Friday. And I was in my parents home on the computer, and I said, I'm in my childhood home where I watched you every week as John boy in the waltons. And of course, I watched him every week as Richie Cunningham on happy days, but just to play with his head. 'cause I'm a jerk. So I said that to him. And as you'll hear in the interview, he roared with laughter because he was like, what? And then he realized, oh, this idiot, it probably thinks that I played John boy. So he has to kind of correct me whatever. And then I think I let him know that I was in on the joke and whatever, but I closed the interview by saying it and closing let me simply say, good night, John boy. And he praises me. He goes, I see you've got the structure there. I can imagine being praised by Ron Howard for structure. The man who makes films. Speaking of the film Alban. Yes, sir. You and I saw the film with Chris times a couple of weeks ago. The special screening here in New York City, it's a harrowing film. It's not a fun film. But it's an important film. It's an excellent film. And there are a lot of films like that. Like, you know, you don't go to see Schindler's List because you think, hey, it's going to be it's going to be a blast. It's a fun. It's like Jurassic Park. It's actually, it falls more under the category of important, but it's so well done. That you submit yourself to the unpleasantness of going on this ride of these 13 most people know that in 2018, 13 boys. Members of a soccer team in Thailand were trapped in a flooded cave, it's a story like you talk about, you can't make it up on it's an unbelievable story. And it's harrowing. If you're, if you're not a fan of cave diving, which I'm not. You know, I'm not a fan of caves or diving. But when you live through this because the film is so well made, you really feel like you were there. Yeah. And you talked to Ron Howard about that. Yeah, and you did the entire interview soaking wet. As an homage, as an homage, to Ron Howard's work in these flooded caves, yes, I conducted the interview sopping wet. We might be joking about that. Actually. But seriously, it was, well, when we were in the theater album, you blow my mind. You saw this film twice. Yes. I did. I mean, I was surprised. I mean, after seeing it once, I thought, okay, this is, it's an important film made by an important filmmaker, but I don't know that I'd want to see it a second time. I hid under the seats the first time it was so scary and so claustrophobic. But I wanted to see it again because now I could relax because I knew that you could relax knowing that it had a happy ending. That's why it's called 13 lives, but oh my gosh, anyway, we're going to play that interview with Ron Howard. Now, there are two the two main divers in the film are played by Viggo Mortensen, most of you know him from, you know, like Lord of the Rings. And Colin Farrell, you know, these are two big deal Hollywood movie stars. And they play these kind of humble roles in the film. The roles of these divers that, and you know what, what I didn't talk to Ron Howard about because we didn't have the time, but anybody who says there's no God, you got to ask yourself, why would human beings risk their lives to save strangers? Why? Would you do that? If this is all there is, why do people do these heroic things? I argue, I would argue, I do argue now that it's because deep inside every one of us, we're made in God's image, and we know what is right and we know what is wrong. And there's no other explanation. I mean, what is an atheist say? I mean, they have all these sad excuses. They'll say something like, oh, it's just evolution programs us. Well, then if that's true, there is nothing heroic about what these divers did. There is nothing commendable about what these divers did. Innumerable divers. I mean, I don't know how many are involved. One of them loses his life. So it's a beautiful film. I just want to say that. And by the way, they're turning it into a ride over at universal. So yes, a fun ride. They sedate you and then they drag you 2.5 kilometers through tight passageways. It's a barrel of laughs. I tell you, Alvin, you're nuts..

Security operations centers: a first principle idea.

"The idea of operations centers has been around seemingly forever friedrich limb in his a history of western technology suggests that the concept goes back as far as five thousand bc amazing anytime an organization grows big enough either in terms of function or one. Small team can't do everything. Leaders have built these centers to men's the workflow and status of the various groups into coordinate. If you fast forward to the early days of the technological revolution we started seeing organizations. That began looking like a modern day sark. But we're quite there yet. The classic example is how nasa managed space missions starting way back in nineteen fifty eight now for those. Who don't know me. I'ma space geek specifically. I love everything about the space race between the russians and the americans during the nineteen sixties in fact as a side note the washington post lillian cunningham produced a thirteen episode podcasts. About that very thing last year it is called moon rise and i highly recommended. But did you know that when neil armstrong and buzz aldrin landed on the moon in nineteen sixty nine that the russians had a remote controlled spacecraft up there at the same time. I didn't know that. Until i listen to the moon rise podcasts. The russians crashed into a moon mountain as armstrong and aldrin. We're flying back to the lunar module so maybe that is why the russians don't advertise that much. But i digress. One of my favorite space movies is paolo. Thirteen directed by ron howard. And one of the things. I love about that. Movie is how it depicts the energy and sense of purpose of an operation center. Here's the actor. Ed harris in a virtuoso performance playing gene kranz the real life nasa flight director delegating tasks his crew of operational teams on what they need to do to get apollo thirteen at home. And the meantime whenever frozen command module to power it up another but the re entry batteries. We've been tried before we've never even stimulated it before gene. We're going to have to figure it out. i want people in our simulators working reentry scenarios. I want you guys to find. Every engineer designed ever switch every circuit transistor and every lightbulb. It's up there then. I want you to talk to the guy. Knee assembly line actually built the thing. Find out how to squeeze every aunt at both of these goddamn machines. I want this mark all the way back to earth with time to spare never lost an american in space where surest not gonna lose one on my watch. Failure is not an option. If that doesn't bring chills down your spine you might be dead. I'm just saying when telephone network started appearing in the early nineteen twenty s phone companies like eighteen bill traffic control bureaus to handle long distance traffic issues by the early nineteen sixties. At and t. Handled most telephone switching through mechanical devices and build a network control center or noc to manage it. At and t. Historians consider this to be the first knock ever built by nineteen seventy seven bell systems had built the first national knock in bedminster new jersey which looked a lot like modern knocks. Today there wasn't much security yet but if there was any knock operators were doing it in the us intelligence community the nineteen sixties were fraud with international incidents like the cuban missile crisis of nineteen sixty to the arab israeli six day war in nineteen sixty seven the us pueblo capture and nineteen sixty eight the prague spring crisis and czechoslovakia also nineteen sixty eight in the one. Twenty-one shootdown crisis in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the. nsa decided that. They needed an operation center to manage their efforts. Across a wide swatch of international activity. Based on the freedom of information request. The nsa released a document in two thousand seven that described the formation of the first national cigarette operations center or insomniac in one thousand nine hundred seventy three and according to charles berlin. I hit him on lincoln and the answer me. He's a former in sock director. The innocent kept adding more responsibility to over time. He said that it's secret. Sauce was when the nsa decided to pair offense or cigarette defense or comsec in the same place. Eventually they replaced the word singing in the title with security. In other words it became the national security operations center. Berlin said that when cyber came along years later the toll of michigan came too big to keep in the in sock in the. Nsa created the national cyber threat operations center or the in talk to deal with it. But with the addition of the concept mission these operations centers started to lean toward defensive security on the government side and in the aftermath of the morris worm which was the first destructive internet worm

"Back to the bench of Hero show, So we have an education system that is biased toward the left. We have a media that is biased toward left in social media bias toward the left. Of course, Hollywood is biased toward the left as well. Is a reason why Hillbilly elegy. The new giant movie from Ron Howard, starring Amy Adams and Glenn Close, is now being ripped up and down by members of your media and your Hollywood culture. So there's a new movie. It's out on Netflix called Hillbilly Elegy. I got to see an early viewing of the of the movie because I'm a special person. It is the story of J. D. Vance. JD Vance is a columnist for National Review. He went to Yale Law School. He served in the military, and it's based on his book, Hillbilly Elegy, Right, so Hillbilly Elegy sold up Julian copies. The book was basically a story about poverty culture in white Appalachia. It was about how his family came from Kentucky and how he grew up in impoverished in formerly industrial areas of Ohio and how a culture of poverty contributes to drug use and too bad parenting. And how in order break that cycle of poverty. Very often You have to make deliberate decisions to change how you have thought about your life right? That's what hillbilly elegy is about. And it's interesting socio cultural study. It became sort of a decoder ring for a lot of people in the media about Trump's America because they're wondering why do all these rural white people vote for Donald Trump this New York real estate mogul? How did that happen? And so hillbilly Elegy became kind of the way that they decoded that because these are a lot of people who are impoverished, and these impoverished people have been stuck in cycles of poverty, and Donald Trump promised them a way forward, and he promised them that he was going to solve some of their problems and it took them seriously. Okay. That was how hillbilly elegy was viewed. Then there's a switch. A couple of years ago, This book was published in 2016. It was widely heralded right left and center. Okay. Then there was a there was a move that happened. Probably 2017 2018 a backlash against the book after Trump won. So, in that glowing period where hillbilly elegy was popular all the way across the aisle, they made a movie of it. Okay in the movie features some the biggest stars in Hollywood. It got Glenn Close his mama and it's got it's got Amy Adams. It's got Amy Adams playing J. D. Vance, his mother. Okay, and the movie's good, It's a good movie. Okay, The movie doesn't go into sort of all these socio cultural stuff. Socioeconomic stuff that the book does because the book is a book and movie is a movie, but it is a good well told family story. Amy Adams is terrific in it. I mean, she's Physically transform. You can't recognize her. Right? Amy Adams. Very beautiful woman should play somebody who's essentially going to seed on. She's very good. Glenn Close plays Mama, and she's very, very good. The performance is across the board are universally quite good. The script is Inarguably a political It is not a political script is very obviously not a political script. The savage the critics have just savaged this thing to death. They've savaged this thing to death, and the reason they savaged this thing to death is because when it was green lit, it was considered a a sort of again decoder ring for Trump's America. And then, after Trump won, it became an evil book that was justifying the evils of Trump's America. So the Atlantic, for example, has a has a big piece by David Simms, called Hillbilly Elegy is one of the worst movies of the year. The new Netflix film is a think piece trap shiny on the outside hollow on the inside. Everyone in this world is one of three kinds. Declares Mama. Otherwise, grandma track of Ron Howard's new film, Hillbilly Elegy. Ah, Good Terminator, a Bad Terminator and neutral. I hate to correct Mama was trying to encourage her impressionable grandson, J. D. Vance to follow a righteous path by invoking Arnold Schwarzenegger beloved action franchise. There is no such thing as a neutral Terminator. These cyborg heroes exist either protect or destroy. I cannot imagine what a neutral Terminator would do. Mama is entitled to her bad movie opinions, of course, But this monologue is the kind of speechifying that rings hollow throughout. Hillbilly Elegy, an adaptation of J. D. Vance is best selling 2016 memoir that debuts on Netflix tomorrow. When it first arrived on bookshelves Man's His story was celebrated as a glimpse into an oft ignored pocket of America, the white working class of Appalachia and the rest belt. Who's willing to Donald Trump in the 2016 election held is an anger translator incited by both Hillary Clinton and Oprah Winfrey. Vance wrote about growing up poor living with a heroin addicted mother and clawing his way into Harvard Law School. The book arrived in a seemingly serendipitous moment, offering a bleak but candid view of communities got it by drug abuse and poverty. Hillbilly elegy. The memoir has been dissected. It challenged and eviscerated and largely focuses on the virtues of hard work and perseverance. Launching vague broadsides against the American welfare system. The author often appears uninterested in interrogating deeper systemic issues. As you can see that really Rip on the movie is going to be a rep on the book J. D. Vance happens to be a Republican. We can't have a book that makes a Republican, a movie that makes a Republican book look good. That can't be a thing. Adapting the book, Howard and screenwriter Vanessa Taylor have gone even further stripping the text of anything that might feel remotely controversial. Appointed. Netflix is Hillbilly Elegy is an Oscar friendly narrative of personal triumph in the face of great hardship, a movie designed to end with an uplifting epigraph. It is also one of the worst movies of the year stuffed with a list stars and cheerful monologues. Is a neutral terminator of a film polished yet utterly inert. Okay. So again, all the matters here is that the the basic movie is bad because J. D Vance is bad because hillbilly elegy is bad and this is how entertainments going to be treated with left has designs. On your personal future on what you can see on the information you can consume..

"Kid from the hills of Kentucky and Ohio has to return home from college when his mother has a drug relapse. I've been doing real good. I just had it down mine. Gotten interview tomorrow, Mom, Otherwise I know you know me. I always land on my feet. You let her get away with this every time I told you that I would do better. You always say that you're lying. We try. You got to think about these kids. What do you think? I've been thinking about since I was 18 years old, huh? Never had a life. Where wasn't thinking about the kids? You want to be dead. Mom, Are you just too lazy to try? This is directed by Ron Howard, and it is his attempt at award films this year. It's actually been out for a couple weeks in limited release in theaters, so you may have seen it if you've been finding the right theaters in town. But it finally released on Netflix is Wednesday. And so if you've got the service, you can even watch it essentially for free. It's based on a book, and it's a true story about this kid and he grew up. It will. He lived in Ohio, which in this area that I think is midway between Dayton and Cincinnati. I think I've been there actually, because it's not far from where I live. But his family's from Kentucky from the hills of Kentucky and look anybody who lives in Ohio Pretty much has hillbilly friends and the hillbilly relatives. I got my own hillbilly relatives out. Their union Tom, Pennsylvania. If you know, West Virginia, That's where my people come from, at least the section of my family tree and it's a different world out there really is, and there's a difference. Culture out there is very different than living in a big city or suburb where I grew up. Neither good nor bad. It's just different and there's good things and bad things about you know, your hillbilly family. And this is this kid feeling very tied to his hillbilly family. I can use that term because I got hillbilly rock to us, but they use that term in the movie. Even though Hillbilly redneck that kind of stuff is the of course. Consider that derogatory Which it is You know, I mean, derogatory terms. They're not just for people who you expect to get upset a derogatory terms. But that's the name of the movie, and he's sort of leans into that stereotype a little bit. It's got a great cast you've got. Amy Adams is the mom. You've got Glenn close, who's in a transformative performance as the grandmother? And what's funny is I started doing the math because you mean Glenn Close Looks like she's a billion years old in this movie. I'm like, Wait a minute. Her character's only a couple years older than me. She really looks old for being in her fifties, and then they show clips at the end of the movie where they show. Pictures of the real people and like video clips and film clips, and no, she looked at old. It's It's rough living sometimes when you're surviving on cigarettes and meals on wheels. And it shows the bonds that you have in the family. I think there's a lot of truth in there in that there is there are very strong bonds in a family of, you know, and like I said from culturally, that's very true. The biggest problem I have with it is every single scene of this movie is an Oscar clip for somebody and it gets a little heavy at a certain point. They really lay it on thick, and it's good of a performance is Amy Adams has in it. It's just that's some point of my God. Okay, I get it. You want your Oscar this year, but I don't know. It just seems very heavy handed in that way. The entire movie is about buttons getting pushed rather than telling a story. And there are certain things in the movie that that you could be very judgmental. And I get to be very judgmental. I guess that I got hillbilly relatives. It's an interesting look at American families from the salt of the Earth. And the struggles that they go through now, as I understand it, the original book Deals with a little bit more of the societal issues and politics of the area. And I think that has an interesting thing to say about the greater political scheme, but they really don't cover that in this movie. The movie itself is more about the internal struggles of this family. Like you said. It's not just a movie that pushes buttons. It's a movie about pushing buttons, but let's put it this way. Look, if you've had your distance Thanksgiving if you were Doing a small group gatherings and then connecting with people via zooms because you couldn't have 15 or 20 people over to your house and you're being responsible over the weekend and you missed the family fights at dinner. You could watch hillbilly elegy. And watch those fights happen on TV. So if you missed all that family in fighting and yelling at each other, you could just watch this movie anyways. I still I'm not sold on the movie. I'm gonna have to say it kind of sucks it Candace looks I don't like the sound of that. That's it for the segment. I need to go to a break. When I come back. I'm gonna be talking about manque. And the home Cinema round up featuring sleepless beauty 14 20 W. B. S. M New Bedford's news talk station. I just tried this wonderful cat. Delicious.

"Are you a movie director? Well, Alexis can help you. What's what's What is this app? Lex, This is really cool. Yes, there is a new app. It's startup. It's called Impact Creative systems. They've spent the last two years connecting up and coming talent with studios and we're not just talking about actors, but we're talking about screenwriters behind the scene, folks. Other professionals directors. So what's great about this is that it is the there's a major star power behind it. Brian Grazer and Ron Howard. They are the stars behind filmmakers, you know who are saying, Hey, that we have a problem here. It's it could be really hard to find promising writers and going through that he calls it, Ron Howard said. Development. Hell that it's just really hard. It's flawed. This is a great way that you can set up a profile on there. And that Creatives confined you and get you work, which, of course, right now is always welcome. I mean, just in general, just being in that industry. It's hard going from gig to gig and trying to figure it out. But this is a great way to do it. They're bypassing a lot of, you know, agents and different things that You know if they're just trying to look for someone quickly now. Actually, now that I say that I don't know if that's necessarily the best thing, But if you're representing yourself and maybe you get an agent after that, you know that could be good. Either way, it's a great way to find talent and to find work. Well, whether it's whether it's necessarily good at the moment. It's the natural progression with this type of thing. I think about the music industry. I mean, you used tohave to and to some degree people still do but used to have to Perform in seedy bars and pay, you know, quote unquote, pay your dues and used to have to wish that a record executive was coming into your town on DH able to go to one of your gigs. Now it's the Justin Bieber thing now. Ah, Shawn and Shawn Mendez. You know, Ellen Ah helped his career. Justin Bieber, the same thing he just made started making his own music on music videos on YouTube. Someone saw it and and there we go. This is the same type of thing. Just Mohr of one Stop clearing house. Finally, I think it's good. I think it's good. It's pretty awesome. They also have a program for screenwriters and writers. If you are you have an idea. They have this Frito Apply Accelerator program. Yeah, Let's see. 87 writers have already gone through it and it basically it's a workshop for your scripts. So this is just and this app is just another offshoot of it. It's called Impact. And so you, Khun You can get bad and check it out. See what they have to offer. Dawn? What do you think? I mean, you're the only one on the show that has ever dealt with screenwriting. Would this be something? That you would do. Do you think it's a net positive for creatives? I would say, um Yes, As long as people know how to protect themselves. When it comes to their their intellectual property, they need to be able to register their screen screenplays. And their ideas even to just have your ideas floating around out there is this just a way for industry people to steal people's ideas. I'm sure that it would get a lot of bad press if that was the case, but I'm sure it's not just Brian Grazier and ah hoo, Elston Howard. Ron Howard, looking at this stuff. They're just develop the app. So I would just be careful because the reason why you have agents and the reason why you have people who they're there to protect you. On DH. If you're not union, if you're not with an agent, you're kind of just out there. You know, without any protection. Right. That's the only thing that worries me about it. But especially if you don't know your way around the business. Yeah, yeah, And that's really what this is kind of for so you can always submit your screenplays and upload them.

Netflix's Q3 demonstrates the dreaded 'pandemic pull-forward in demand'

"Netflix's just reported in its worst ever earnings MISS INVESTORS BANS quarterly results from the streaming giant Jillian. Boston's on the West Coast this morning joins us with what went wrong in Q. Three. Was it Netflix's or wasn't the analysts Julia? How well expectations that were certainly high and then? Netflix shares today we see them plummeting on the biggest earnings myths and snatch flicks went public those earnings falling nineteen percent short of those analysts expectations now with Netflix. Of course, always about that subscriber number, it fell short of the companies already lowered expectations the company outages two point. Two million subscribers in the quarter in guided the addition of fewer subscribers in the fourth quarter then anticipated. Now, that's not all looking ahead to next year. NETFLIX's warns of some very tough comparisons but co-ceo hastings saying he's not concerned about competition we compete. So broadly, we compete for time against you know tiktok to as well as HBO as well as I tell really, the limiter for us is you know what's the quality of our service How often how many nights you say Oh my God I want to go to Netflix and and watch the next show. In contrast to Netflix snap shares soaring after beating expectations about twenty one percent beating expectations really across the board snaps revenue growing fifty two percent more than double the growth rate than analysts projected with a surprise profit of one cent per share that's compared to the five cents per share loss than analysts anticipated. Now, Becky what's really interesting here is that snap has really benefited from Kovin pushing advertisers to try their augmented reality ad formats and also guys there was a subtle dig at facebook sounds like they may have benefited from that facebook ad boycott well. Julius stay here we want to bring in another voice to the conversation as well. Rich Greenfield joins US right now he's of course, partner and Co founder light said partners and I want to start with Netflix's first. Then we'll get back to the snap story, but but Netflix, you say the real story here is that the bear story is gone. What do you mean these are disappointing numbers, but it does come after a very strong first-half for the company for for a subscriber ads. Yeah. Look look I heard the commentary that you were just talking about in terms of like the biggest. History of Netflix. But remember this is a company where again people are very focused on the subscriber trends and the subscriber trends in the first two quarters far out seated in terms of the beat far outside at Amiss here I think the real story that people should be talking about is that not only are they generating substantial free cash flow this year, but even next year as production is in full swing again, they're talking about that they may be at break even free cash flow and so the financing the sort of the bear thesis on Netflix for years was that they. Don't have the money to finance all of this content they're going to run into capital, they won't be able to finance. They won't be able to raise capital and that was sort of the the the bear thesis that's been ongoing for years and years. They're basically self financing now. So the view that Netflix has a capital raising issue is now gone, and if you start to look out over the next few years in terms of their pricing power and you're starting to move up price in Canada recently in Australia, we think the US will happen either in or early Q. One. Pricing Power and all of a sudden you don't have any cash flow needs in terms of having to raise capital. This thing's going to generate dramatic free cash flow and you're going to see the scale to billions and billions of free cash flow a year. That's what people should be talking about look beating lieutnant missing numbers is never a good thing for stock I get why it's down today make sense that it's down at Ted a huge run this year but I think this is more about consolidating as it continues to move higher. into. The point I think the company said on the call that if there had been another forty eight hours in the quarter, they would have met their projections or even exceeded some of the projections on this. But but when you see a pullback of about five point, three percent today does that represent a buying opportunity to you given how much the stock is already run this year? Absolutely because I think the thing that you need to be thinking about Becky is when you think about what's happened over the last sort Of like six weeks, what's really become clear one, the pandemic isn't just disappearing. You're seeing it flare up again in the US you're seeing flare up across a lot of Europe it even parts of Australasia like this is not going away. So we're all going to be more homebound or in terms of you know kind of entertainment activity for a longer period of time unfortunately over the course of the next six to nine months at the same time, the movie calendar has cleared out like all of the movie studios have. Essentially delayed all of their content two, second-half twenty, twenty one if not into twenty, twenty two, and so the path for Netflix's the runway has been completely cleared. They were going to be putting out movie after movie they've got a Ron, Howard movie hillbilly comes out in a few weeks an animated feature over the moon there's just a ton of content coming and really no competition and so I think that's GonNa really well,

It's a pretty happy day reunion of cast members, including Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, Marion Ross and more, and the whole thing will benefit the Democratic Party of Wisconsin as the show was set in Milwaukee change you have to, but not everyone's onboard. Scott Baio, who played Chachi on the show, is a supporter of President Trump. He responded to Ron Howard's tweet about the reunion, saying it's a shame to use classic shows like Happy Days about Americana to promote an anti America.

"And another fifty four million internationally bringing the total to one hundred and ten million dollars on a budget estimated to be close to forty million much of which came from Lucas. Mgm Over thirty companies joined on board prior to the release of the film to offer product. Tian's to willow. There were action figures cereals. Lunchboxes cheese coloring books. Jigsaw Puzzles boardgames. Children's meals even random things like underwear and camping equipment. Were all made for willow because they thought this was going to be a big blockbuster. Although technically this was profitable the returns were not deemed enough to continue with Lucas. Intended film trilogy. He wanted to make a couple of more movies after this. Nevertheless Saga of Willow of good and Laura. Dannon did continue in the following years later with a trilogy of books afterward entitled Chronicles of the Shadow War which featured stories detailed by George. Lucas and they were fleshed out with words by Chris Claremont. Who happened to be the writer? Who popularized the X men? Comic books in the nineteen hundred s willow is intended to serve as a life preserver project for both Lucasfilm and MGM. Who are both struggling at the time? They were suffering a string of box office leading into one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. Lucas in particularly felt that the company's reputation had tarnished after suffering back to back losses with the disappointing box office of Labyrinth. And the Mega Turkey that was Howard the duck. Unfortunately this attempt at temple released barely covered. It's expenses while tie in products. Ended up languishing on store shelves after the reviews and the box office returns. Were not up to expectations. Lucas ended up defending himself in the media from criticism. You know they were writing about him saying he was regurgitating Warren concepts and they thought he was throwing money at special effects the to try to cover over that regurgitation. Lucas ended up defying critics. To come up with a way to make a film of the quality of Willow at less than the cost that he put into it. It has been said that part of the reason for the negative marks by some critics is due to the preconceived notion that will a would be much larger hit for all ages. Had they known that this was destined to struggle to find an audience? They might have been a little bit. More charitable in channeling expectations for more specific demographics that might have found some enjoyment in it namely children and those who enjoy fantasy genre and that's who ultimately came out to champion the film. Ron Howard stated a couple of months after the film's release. He was confused toward the critical assessment of willow given that audience. Reaction was actually stronger for this movie than his last. Two films that critics ended up loving splashing cocoon both Howard and Lucas ended up writing off the critical responses having unrealistic expectations due to pass successes a good not. Great Film is considered to be a disappointment by critics. If it happens to be a lesser film than anything you've done in the past and that certainly did hold true for Lucas and Howard that despite its problems it ended up getting nominated for two Academy Awards for its visual effects in it. Sound Effects Editing. Lost both of those words to the technical marvel that was who framed Roger Rabbit which happened to have visual effects done by Lucas's own industrial light. Magic group willow ended up suffering due to the reputation of George Lucas at the time after having his hand on revolutionizing Hollywood for the prior decade he ended up struggling to stand out amid other productions that followed in the wake of Star Wars and Indiana Jones and that leaves willow feeling like just another attempt to deliver the same thrills all over again. It's reputation has been helped by the lower expectations out. Lackluster reviews middling box office do provide and it has actually become a cult favorite among many. Who think it's better than what many have said in the past? But after the likes of Excalibur and legend and Conan the barbarian and dragon slayer in about another dozen or so notable entries in the fantasy genre of the nineteen eighty S. It was hard to revolutionize genre that never quite cold into the mainstream and was already becoming passe by nineteen eighty-eight and looking back though. It is a better film than many of its predecessors so hindsight has been kinder for those who love this Shandra. It does hit enough of the right marks at the right times to merit a recommendation. Even if so many properties in book and film form have hit. Those saint marks many times before as with many imaginative films of the nineteen eighties. That failed. It eventually did find its audience. That truly does love it. And it's reputation has gradually shifted enough for generations who grew up watching it on home media to consider willow among the better fantasy entries that the decade of the nineteen eighties has to offer so for all of that. I'm going to actually give it a mild recommendation. Three stars out of four stars on my skill me to recommend it for people who like this kind of movie if you're a kid and if you're a lover of the fantasy genre certainly this is kind of a precursor to the Lord of the rings films before the Special Effects Really could be rendered in a much more realistic fashion with that. But you know that's not surprising. Given that there are many aspects of Lord of the Rings Ian Willow so if you like the Lord of the Rings Films I would actually put this up there. Some people might even consider this a better version of the hobbit. Then Peter Jackson's attempt at a trilogy making the habit so I do recommend it. If this sounds of appeal to you you probably will get a kick out of willow enough to give it at least three stars. Maybe more if you happen to be so inclined to this kind of movie in Recent News as of this recording in March of twenty twenty there is a sequel series that is planned and in development for the Disney plus streaming service with Ron Howard doing some production and his screenwriter for the Stars Film Solo Jonathan Kasdan scripting and that will promise to return Warwick Davis into the Willow Rawal. Although the ceres might focus more on a grownup Laura Dannon so something to look forward to. If you're a fan of willow coming down the pipe hopefully fingers crossed on that so anyway. If you have your own thoughts on willow and you want to impart them to me you can find my contact information on my website. That's a clip. Stir Dot net. Wip S. T. E. R. DOT net. You email me if I may twitter. Feed facebook page by INSTAGRAM. All of those are adequate ways to get in touch with me. As far as what? I'm going to be covering next week. Well it's kind of in keeping with that actually mentioned during the course of this review. It's another film that Lucas had his hand in. Even though it's not a Lucasfilm Phil and it does feature Jean Marsh in the role of the main heavy. She's playing princess and evil princess in that film the kind of dark and twisted the one that gave a lot of children nightmares. I'm not even sure if I'm GonNa let my daughter watch this. Although she does like some darkened twists and stuff to it is from one thousand nine hundred five and it is called return to and that will be the film. I'm covering on next episode returned to is for next week. Thanks everyone for listening and joining me on this trip around the world in eighties movies..

"Eight dichotomy. Which is what the Ellen's call. The race of humans. Day are much larger than the male Winston willows brethren. Don't think it's a good idea to keep her around the evil which Queen Bath. Marta has millions including her warrior. Princess daughter named Socia and efficient skull faced warrior General Keel actively searching for this baby smuggled out from under her nose because she may be. The prophecy foretold to in her reign. She has this special mark upon her arm and willow ends up accepting the mission to return the baby. Back to the first Daikin meets with a few other. Nell wins until along the way they encounter and recruit that I die keeney that they see mad marred again played by VAL kilmer. He's a skilled the down his luck mercenary. He agrees to take the baby in exchange for his release from capture. That keen are in the midst of a war with allegiance on. Bath Mortis side and that puts Laura Danone's fate in jeopardy. Should they fall? Short however willow gets another directive from fairy to find this good witch on a remote island and with Madigan and a couple of brownies. Who are these human like races that are even smaller than the no wins? They're only nine inches in height. Willow seeks to find a way to protect the baby from bath. Mortar now most of the interior for Willow was shot in L. Street studios in London. There were exteriors shot in England and in New Zealand so it was all over the map here. Some work was also done on. Lucas's home turf in Marin county including the Muir Woods San Pablo Bay and Skywalker ranch scenic cinematography here by Adrian. Biddle is a highlight in this land of Regal Castles and lush forests and lofty mountain backdrops and visually. This is gorgeous. A fairytale as there has been on the screen up to that point and as with all of his productions Lucas receives one for work from his visual Effects Company industrial light magic although some of the effects were ally costlier than the anticipated especially this morphing the more moments involving the magical turning of one creature into another into another into another isla had invented the morphing technique for this movie. They ended up feeling to get that process patented so that they could sell that technique to others who might want to use it in their films and they kind of lost millions. Potentially there. The story ends up going off the rails and its climax. Maybe that might be a step too far for some viewers. It's really wacky. That's kind of part of the film's charm for some viewers. It combines really stunning visuals with James. Horner's rousing score. And I think willow compels as a sight and sound experience. Even when the story tends to get formulaic three foot. Four inch Tall Work Davis. He gets his first starring role at only seventeen years old during the making return of the Jedi. Lucas had ideas of making Davidson star of this long. Just dating idea. Ron Howard. Initially was skeptical about Davis. He thought that he was too young at seventeen to play a married father of two. Lucas fought hard but he ended up leaving the decision to Howard on who better could be cast as willow if you could find somebody which put Davidson competition with hundreds of others auditioning for that part. The dishes were long and they were arduous. But Howard felt that this was a good test to see if Warwick Davis was ready for the long days and nights of the eventual shoot. And what's Val Kilmer? On the opposite Davis. He realized that the chemistry was evident there and he knew that he had his willow and Matt Martin Right then and there and from there Warwick Davis would undergo a lot of training horse riding. He had a phobia of horses fencing magic tricks and a lot of baby handling training to make sure that he fit this part to a t. Davis developed an American accent for we love because Ron Howard felt that American audiences would have difficulty understanding his English dialect even though the cast was mostly British anyway. Howard had Davis study the films of Jimmy Stewart in particular because he wanted Davis to embody the same calm but very steady everyman persona kilmer. Who beat out the likes of other actors like John? Cusak Matt Moore. Who Happen to be Max headroom. At the time Kilmer is very fun to watch. He applies this juggling style to his sword. Fighting that makes it very unique. Despite a game and Comical Performance Mad Martikainen I think he falls a bit short as far as being a compelling reluctant hero kind of fails to take hold in the manner of others of this mold like Hans Solo or in the Jones but kilmer still manages to get his do here. He became interested while he was making this film. In pursuing the actress Joanne whalley they became romantically involved during the shoot. And she initially opposed seeing her co Star on the side but she eventually found him hard to resist. Their offset. Romance caused some scenes to be reshot to capitalize on their newfound chemistry and they eventually became married about three months before the release of the film the roles of the Nineties High Brownies. They went to Comedians Kevin Pollack and Rick Overton. They were shot. After principal filming had completed and they were inserted using the tech wizardry of Aylum g marsh returns to a similar role to the one that she did for return to is as the main heavy. Lucas actually had a hand in helping to get return to Oz made behind the scenes and he really liked gene marshes portrayal there so he used it here and after the largest casting call for little people for any film in history up to that point about two hundred forty of them would end up participating in willow as actors and stunt personnel extras. There's an irony here. Willow lacks many of the humanistic touches. That George Lucas had sought Ron Howard to deliver Lucas emphasized them conceptually but once production was underway. He ended up obsessing more with the visual components. And this really became the kind of visual effects film that he swore it would never be and he ended up getting a lot of the backstory to the characters that he intended in favor of extending the action in battle sequences backstory. That was put in. The original script does remain if you read the novelization and also. Marvel's Comic Book Adaptation. There was much more fleshing out of these characters before they get to their battles. I would say there are probably more emotions humanity to be found in say an Indiana Jones. Film which willow does tend to emulate in its action sequences. Even the Willow tries more deliberately to pluck at our heartstrings. Now I would say the only genuine emotional connection that does occur happens between willow and his wife. Kaya kyw's played by. Julie Peters Peters had no prior acting experience at all before taking the Cairo working as an audio typist inner day job and she still continued doing that. Even after Willow A- Laura Dannon. The baby is played by Twin Sisters Ruth and Gene Greenfield on the screen. The twins went through many hours of filming to try to ensure that the crew would have a whole host of emotional reaction shots that they could use throughout the story depending on the situation. In addition to the Greenfield's who were brought in near the end of the shoot for close ups nearly twenty other infants were borrowed from a local hospital with permission from their parents of course and they were used during the shoot at one time or another including a thirteen pound motorized standing. That Davis carried around because the age of Laura Dannon was to be only three months old but it took many more money than that six months to a year for the film to be completely shot. Lucas and company. They did have a bit of fun with some notable film critics at the time. Some of the bad guys are named. After these film critics general keells knock on the prominent critic for New Yorker magazine Pauline Keel while according to the press kits and the novelization the ugly to headed beast. That's in this film is called an Ebor. Sisk Ron Howard jokes. That the heads were modeled after his brother. Clint the Iverson is clearly poking fun at the two headed duo of film critics known as Siskel and Ebert it was originally going to be called Cisco Bird but that might have made it a little too obvious. The name of the fairy maiden of the forest sharell Andrea came from combining the names of the wives of Ron Howard and Bob Dolman Cheryl and Andrea respectively and Linda. Ronstadt was put there in the middle. That was Lucas's girlfriend at the time willow when it finally came out it debuted atop the US box office in its initial week of release but it ended up failing to catch the kind of fire that they were hoping to achieve in the end. Despite a twenty million dollar marketing campaign launched total box office returns were fifty six million dollars in the United States.

I had gone through Through bankruptcy Went through a divorce. became a single dad of a nine and seven year old Wait over four hundred pounds and I wasn't making nearly enough money each month. It was a tough tough time and so so You know I I took the time to kind of refocus my life and I was able to ask the question you know what what would life look like if I really really wanted to build it. In a way that would allow me to thrive and and I decided you know. I love to speak in front of people so I wanted to be. You know I wanted to be able to do speaking and I I knew I had to take care of my kids and I and this was the time to start building a business that would serve. You know me through the rest of my life and then ultimately one based hopefully serve them as well So I lost one hundred seventy five and thirteen months. Lost One hundred and seventy five pounds. I started this company and in twenty three years you you know become an international speaker. bestselling and award winning author Become a thought leader on the topic of younger generations in the workplace and education. And the home You know all of these things are happening You know just just last week. I was invited by Forbes Dot com to become a regular contributor with them. Ah to write articles on this subject so you know it's it's remarkable. What happens if you start building towards the the life that you want to? Have you know things end up falling into place. Now it's taken me twenty three years but But I'm at the point now where US every failure that I've had in my life life To help me you know truly appreciate it. Be Grateful for things are today and and I'm just I'm a mumbled I'm honored. I'm very grateful grateful. So you mentioned in your answer that you've had failures and that you've overcome challenges. What how you approach challenges to overcome them With every we'll see I you know I guess the easiest way for me to do. This is what I speak about on the road and what I wrote into my book answering why I call it the branch creek moment of life you know if you can imagine yourself going up in a tree and just climbing a tree. This happened to me when I was ten years old. I went up very high up into a tree when out on a really firm limb and while I was standing on the limb the limit or niece meet cracks. I mean if you can imagine what that feels like you know when you when you hear it underneath you and you almost feel it like pitchfork through your body as the branch starts to give way. Hey well you know at that moment of peril. There are three things that happen and this is a metaphor. I use for everything in my life and I teach this to audiences three things that happen number. One you become singularly focused doesn't matter what stresses and challenges. You had getting into the tree or not focused on the task at hand. Second thing that happens. Is you start strategic. Planning how you're going to get out of this. And how do you get back to the safety of the trunk. What are you gonNA grab where you'RE GONNA fall? Third thing that happens is you take action And all three of those things focused planning action happen literally in the blink of an and I or I you know I believe that. The branch creeks in our lives many times anytime. There is a fear of loss or a sense of urgency. The branch creeks underneath us a little bit and it forces us to focus the plan and to take action and I believe that those are the moments that make all the difference in the world. Because it's at those moments that we actually become uncomfortable and I believe that the growth in our lives happened when in fact we're uncomfortable almost never when we're comfortable so I I welcome those times and so in Nineteen ninety-six and I had the biggest branch creek in my life with all of those things that were going on and it forced me to focus the plan and to take action and that's made all the difference in my life now when I am ever you know Faced with a challenge or something in my wife isn't going according to plan today or this week or this month or whatever I always take a step back and I go. Oh this is a good thing. There's something positive here I have to focus. I have to plan. I have to take action and every time I do that. It gives me a new perspective on the challenges oranges that arise each day. Some awesome so switching is just a tad bit And I love s asking this question just because of the different answers that I get If you could meet anyone in the world who would it be and what would you say to them. Wow what a great question I would love to meet and have dinner with Ron Howard. I just I'm a big Fan. I think he's a remarkable storyteller and And he's He was born on my birthday. He's just eight years older than me but I would love to meet him and talk about some of the the remarkable stories that he's told on Film we've learned a lot about you the branch creek moments in your life. Tell us about your business. What do you do so I own a company called T. The F. S. Were a You know an international communication and strategic initiatives company. I you know I work. I do a lot of consulting with educational organizations and business organizations on how to recruit engaged retain and increase performance in the younger generations. So I'm constantly working in to try to get people to understand that you know the younger generations are the most incredible generations to come down the pike. Which is why I'm in so demand today because I have a different view than most people? We'll do In America today most people think that young people are lazy and entitled. I go completely the other way. I think anyone thirty nine younger in this country and the most incredible generations to come down the pike like. I think they're the most intelligent resourceful and pit bull like generations that we have ever seen in this country when they see a want to in their life they will move heaven and earth to get to that want to our challenge of course his parents educators employers is getting them to want something so what I work with with organizations and you know whether it's educational or or workforce development is. How do you understand what they're thinking you know? Wh Why do they think what they think what makes them tick. And then how do you best engage. Connect an answer there. Why As to why something is happening so that they can come along for the ride you know they need to see the vision. They need to see the purpose in order to be able to move forward. So that's what I do do every day. I've got twenty three roughly twenty three people now that support what I do across North America and and we are we're we're we're crushing it out there. I got an amazing. The team of people that are constantly giving one hundred percent And they they actually push me further and faster some. I'm very fortunate to have brought wonderful people on

Britain’s Unwritten Constitution Suddenly Looks Fragile

"The u._k. U._k. of wednesday's decision by her majesty the queen elizabeth the second herself to approve prime minister boris johnson's request to suspend parliament until the middle of october now a lot of people saw this as boris johnson's way to prevent his adversaries from blocking no deal brexit before the october thirty first deadline deadline and some people went a lot further than that shutting down parliament in order to force through an audio brexit which will do untold and lasting damage to the country is not democracy. It's dictatorship and if m._p.'s don't come together next week to stop boris johnson in his tracks then i i think today will go down in history. As the yuki democracy died scotland's first minister nicholas sturgeon there simon my british friend <hes> so often we we asked this of your countrymen when they come on this show what is going on. We always have the same refrain when it comes to brexit. What's the latest here. What is the significance against of what nicholas sturgeon calls the end of democracy on the island. I was thinking on the way he had told that we could spend the entire hour discussing british parliamentary procedure all the vagaries areas of operating with an unwritten constitution but it might just be easier to explain the rules of cricket to emirati. We'd get further and understand more. This is a huge huge move by boris johnson fueled by seventeen point two million voters who in that referendum three years ago now said they wanted to pull britain written out of the european union. He is essentially risking a constitutional crisis and i think even a societal crisis to try and get britain out of the european union but the problem is <hes> that he is a prime minister himself with no democratic mandate of his own replaced theresa may as a result of the votes of members visit of the british conservative party less than naught point. One percent of the british public essentially voted him in he has inherited exactly the same parliamentary array of forces parliamentary difficulties that tied to resume up in knots. We sit here and we see that shock of blond hair and we think oh. Everything's changed in the okay. Nothing's changed. The only thing that's changed is the occupant of number ten downing street and he's doing the one thing that five members of his own cabinet argued less than a month ago would be profoundly undemocratic and autocratic namely an enron an end run around parliament and he's gonna prorogue it which is a fancy name for saying suspended activities <hes> for several days i mean the number of days involved is open to debate but for five weeks parliament will not meet in what he hopes is a move that will allow him to pave the way if necessary to pull britain out out of the european union without an agreement with brussels something that he knows parliament would vote to block and there's a fundamental issue here which is sovereignty supporters of brexit have argued since the debate was first mooted that one of the reasons why britain needs to leave the european union is because we need to get our sovereignty back but britain sovereignty is enshrined in what we are all taught at grade. School is the mother of parliaments so the idea that in order to get british sovereignty back. You actually may have to suspend the activities of parliament. It's a real rhetorical problem for boris johnson and he's going to be facing. I think major protests over the next few days as a result. I cannot tell you what hugh hugh grant famous british actor tweeted about this because it would get us fined by the f._c._c. and get me thrown off the air but ron howard rank and file people reacting is this similar to what happens in the united states where there's sort of outrage on one side shrugs on another side and people sort of move onto the next outrage or is this really permeating british societies permeating me any british society because while <hes> obviously labor is is opposed to this but you also have dettori's conservatives who are posted as to you and you just saw that you know former british prime minister. John major has jumped in on on a on a lawsuit to try and stop this activity. It seems that johnson's johnson is betting that the e._u.

Review: With the latest 'Grinch,' there's nothing much new

"So awhile ago, I wanna say number of months ago, we got shown a first teaser. Well, first of all got announced that oh, they're doing another grant of yet, another remake the Grinch for those that aren't aware. They did the original amid movie with Boris Karloff voice in the grant and narrating. And that one for a long time was the only one there was no Grinch anything in two thousand which I did Naji know this until recently that that's when it came out. It doesn't seem like it's been that long to me. But I digress. They didn't live action grant where Ron Howard. Did it directed it? Jim Carrey was the Grinch in it. In a lotta ways that it kind of expand on the story and kind of filled in gaps that we really didn't get in the book, or in the animated film that you know, we had had many many years ago, and some people were mixed about it. I personally really enjoyed it. I thought you know, Jim Carey did a great job the castle did a really great job had a good soundtrack, and it was a different fun film. And as I was watching the teasers for this new grant and the trailers, you know, where Benedict Cumberbatch this time voices. The grant turns out Keenan Thompson is in it as like a neighbor of the grant, and then then the girl from murder, she wrote her name's on the tip my tongue. It's she voices the mayor whose only for a little bit. So anyways. So this film. I was if you about it had my doubts, Mike, you know, what it could be good or it could be really bad. There's no in between. And I was able to see this movie this week. And yeah. I'm going to bring it to you everything about this film. I do warn you there may be some spoilers in here. I'm going to try to keep it as spoiler free as I can. But at the same time, I'm gonna you know, kind of this is going to be kind of a, you know, just true review. It's what's going to be so anyways. So this movie like I said has been come about just the grant it's computer animated. It's done by aluminum entertainment, the same company that's done. You know, the first three despicable me movies. It did minions which really my opinion were all actually really good movies, by the way, I had my dad's about minions to and I left going right minions. They did a very good job. So I thought you know, that going, you know, what I don't think it's going to be bad. I just didn't think. So. So anyways, I go and see this movie, which by the way is only like an hour, forty minutes long. It's not really a long movie. The live action version that Ron Howard derive. Acted was I think closer to two hours, and I'm just going to say it, the this movie is terrible. It has a really really really bad film is just man I was just like in shock. How bad it was.
