"It's new this week. Is it by one of my favorite directors. Yes seen as a bad movie into flop brewster mccloud. No that's seventy seventy or seventy one seventy. It's the same year as another comes out. Great mash right. Yeah i forgot i forgot it. Was that url. It's very early. Yeah okay we second. It's one fair is seen as a flop. Time i believe is certainly all sitting back with his smug look on his face. Because he's astonished that i wouldn't immediately coined the most important american next seventy eight is sidney lumet's correct. It's the with a movie. I study maybe as obsessively as you study halloween and a movie in which i think. The powers are similar. I like the fact that every musical number. That movie is shot. like it's from. The perspective of michael myers five blocks away observing pitiful people and miserable life as danced their way to doom. What a while. What a wild a movie about the central loneliness of the human condition and pretty five. How oppress people using. Used to be convinced themselves that there's any joy in life it's a masterpiece. Go see the whiz we'll do. Here's it's a masterpiece. I find i find half of its runtime watch. I find the all of his time on behalf of it's as good as anything since the unwinable stuff zero finance compel movie in my opinion. It's so just to recover top four midnight express animal house the wiz and up in smoke. I'm just saying. I mean you'd have a good time at the american theaters right now. Number five is a comedy from one of griffin's favorite directors. He's already been invoked in this box office game. He's already been invoked in. Look at this year's altman's movie. Oh albright for seventy eight would be for Okay because wait nashville. Seventy five right or seventy six nashville is nineteen hundred. Seventy five Than seventy eight would be. It's this year's altman. Movie is not a very big no is it his not very big sorry. Is it a wedding a wedding okay. Which i've never seen. I never have either. It's we're blinds. have you seen a wave. Yeah says right sure. Believe he's the start. Carol burnett carol burnett was on the series a former like seven or eight years ago. The wedding right. I don't away nashville. Little wedding it's the beginning of because it's not it's nashville seventy-six buffalo bills seventy three women. Which is obviously a great summary. Eight is a weddings and perfect couple. Same year an eighty s health and popeye. He's he's throwing in the basement. He's he's swimming against the current at this. That's rough number. Six is what we call the big fix with richard dreyfuss. I don't know it. Gotta fix it tab. One of those is going to say. No one has watched pretty much posters this poster. I've seen this poster. he's speaking. that's a real listening. Are you in. are you not like me. We're giving you all we've got here. The boys from brazil grech you got death on the nile with near eastern hannity ustinov It's pretty solid. there's halloween Which i think we talked about in this episode and then comes a horseman allen packing I'm looking at because i do that. It's yeah it's cool. Yeah jane fonda. James caan seventies horse movies. You have electric horseman. You have comes a horseman you have. They shoot horses. don't they. sixty eighth over weight. They showed horses didn't they. I don't know the pitch. What if they shot. They shot horses. So what's it about. It's about people like roller skating. For five days straight waiting in a circle studio he was like the movies called. They shoot horses and she's like that's to grow don't they. Just to kind of maybe other movies could be improved by the end. It expresses details are so arrogant there so assured of what they're saying what you have. No question David how many weekends has been released at this point I told you this new this week. Jesus okay and it's it's opening number three Yeah this express the wiz. Halloween are the new comes. A horseman are the new movie. Says i just want to say for perspective. I believe yes nine seventy at the same year. The halloween was made for three hundred twenty. Five thousand dollars. I believe the wiz cost forty million dollars. It costs more than star wars the year before. I'm seeing here. Twenty four million which is still a triple. The budget of star washer. Okay but you know a lot. But yes i have never seen the whiz. Of course we all of the tagline to the west griff. The wiz stars the music. Wow comes through the window right. We're done we're done boorda downward might not then read that. A time code to me there so we've probably definitely gone over three probably like three fifteen. I'm guessing fifteen before ads before ads. Short abbas might be number one right. I think it might be. I have to say they know savoys on all my intention. I didn't want bullsh- eichel shenanigans festival by intention pure density. I had no. I didn't know if i agree with that. You are not being tangent t you came in with a manifesto want us to talk about. We talked about all of it. I agree with that. It's not like you came in and you're like we gotta do ten minutes on guns and rose as well. He came in. And i talked about the worst movie by this great director for the longest amount of time. It's more like. I would have heard so much to be like plane checks on halloween sunday morning loaded up and i see and i'm like one fifty one. What the hell went wrong and iota and it's just like so the thing about star wars in guys come on what are we doing. This is a big one. You have to be on topic. And i have to break my pattern to come on. So thank you for letting me sit on this episode for four months. I think it's our best ever really. I thought it was pretty good episode to be honest. I don't know actress fun and it was great to be in person. It was nice to be person. It wouldn't have been that long if we had not been in prison cracks. You save you remember. But i'm saying we were at levels space madness by the end of that like we were i was i was i would say genuinely insane hallucinogen longer be like am i.

"I mean look. I don't know why. I don't know why i did this to myself. I didn't have to say it. You know the girl comes in. You know it's the guy the guy comes in. Oh okay and let's face just walks out okay. Okay and you're like what. He's wax him closer. You're like whoa. And this is the same. When michael comes out incorrect just comes out of the door and then simply stabs him in that. It's not that because then he stands there for like ten looks at him so that's the kind of moment that can't really pull off the tilting. The head. that's the kind of thing. Every sequel and reboot and everything has tried to make a shot that just completely disturbing that has no. It's just a simple faraway shot and it is so creepy just to see him standing there looking at what he has done. But there's also thinking. How can i get those glasses over a sheet other movies. Replicate this right other halloween movies. It feels like they're making him more menacing whereas coverage this it's like is he understand anything. It's the problem with allies ing they turn them into these legends. Michael thinking general once. You're doing that you're in trouble. Because then he's he's he's on animal instinct here. That's why it's an animal right from the time that the from the time that bob and linda are dead after this. This was what i was saying. This is a huge period where there's no dialogue and laurie. Jamie lee is completely isolated. From everyone else. The kids are asleep and this begins a twenty minute sequence where she's interacting with nobody and the movie that hasn't had that much dialogue anyway but now it has none and she's completely isolated. Everyone's dead she doesn't know this and she's just like looking out the window and goes to the other house and then there's a queue here that's the first time in a long time that there's a different piece of music which was very interesting at this point in the movie. Okay and then. She finds the gravestone everyone dead crammed into the roussy. Here's the murder on the phone. But she thinks it's just a joke or whatever or more maybe some some some hanky-panky some hot anti-tank But she it's it's strange enough to pekar interest in right and then we're then to griffin's point again i just want to keep playing these things out like him as we talked about. What the sheet and the glasses. That's another like that's a piece of iconography busy. Yeah you can put it on a figure or unsure and everyone would be like. I love that moment. For as much as i love the little boy in the clowns right. That like the bob ghosts. Disguise is iconic in. Its own way separate. From the iconography of michael myers in the same way that little boy clown michael also separately iconic not as a variation of but once she goes in the other house and finds everybody as we were talking about this now just basically just it's rages him chasing from house to the moment i love the most is. I meant her banging on the door. The lights coming on but no help coming. I love that so much totally because it's so this is like griffin's point of his preference of hard. This is where the movie is playing by silent film horror rules because from the time that the kids are asleep and all the other teenagers are dead. There's nobody to talk to everything that happens. Here could just be a silent right for blocking is just somebody being pursued by someone else. Ready camera moves perfectly facings reacting. It's wonderful music. Twenty figure slowly coming out of the shadows and the person for twenty minutes. It's not until tommy. Wakes up and loomis shows back up that we snap out of what is basically just pure cinema and tommy waking up. It's she just. Has that brief moment where she thinks she got him. Tommy knows can't boogeyman. She stabs him in the neck with a knitting needle. She hides in the closet. I remember seeing this as a teenager and going. Why can't he get through those like plywood. Closet tommy wallace plays michael myers in that scene right because he designed the closet and knew how to take it apart literally. They met one scene. It's also just trying very hard to get through. What looks like a wicker door. it's true takes them all. There's like seven minutes left in the movie at this point is one of those things to speaking about carpenter knowing to like. Get out get good right. Yeah where you're just like any other move e even if you are to believe that this is the final stretch of of our hero. Fighting our villain. You're still like what twenty minutes wrap up and then ten minutes and you're like seven minutes all in until the disks stops until until mpa logo right. Just remarkable yup. Yeah it is but it is like. It's just it's escalated. It's become kind of the silent sequence and now she's doing this kind of thematically nice thing of protecting the children loomis fires off the shots. This is one of the mascots. Lifted up which is a very interesting potentially controversial moment of them. She didn't like it. It's just it's very curious if you know the sequels how much that would even in the new one where you frame him from behind her in the rob zombie. I know which. I will rob. Zombie has a lot of. that's where it became controversial. I feel like people were very very dissatisfied with his treatment. Of michael myers overall really. I really like those movies. But they're just completely different. You just have to think of them as like really you know the first one is a little more trying to be remake. I guess second way up your alley. I don't know i never did. I mean it's just. It's just an incredibly. It's one of the most depressing movies i've ever. I've always wanted to know where it's like. What the psychology of michael myers be like rather than john carpenter. Who is like. This isn't a noble evil. He's like no no no no. These are circumstances beer. Screw up in. Let's delve in. He's going in the entire this october. I'll watch both halloween twos..

"Lomas goes he was doing a good job of slurred but hasn't like a different sequels offered different explanations to try to like like let him out for driving lessons. Rabbit hole of dry already knew how to drive. When he was seven was his dad was an alcoholic. Or that like there was Maybe it's like a novelization or something similar saying that. They explained that in the van when they drove him to the institution. The first place there was a plexiglas partition. So he could watch i. That sounds good driving and study dr. What the real argument is right. If you put something behind the wheel of the car they might know how the basic mechanism is supposed to work. But yes hasn't the novelization explains what you're talking about. They watch dr loomis drive. Which again more info than cares we. I think you should leave. Guy season two. i have related to. I never. I never saw the as a young person who was like. How can michael drive right. It was just like i drive. You scary supernatural car magical powers either from heaven or hell you know what else he does. That really blew on his mind last night. is he eats dog. Let you catch this will and look this up. This is a halloween wikipedia about the dog. The dog he has eaten him. I do think this comes up in in clay. Right at the myers house and luma's bear with sheriff lee bracket and they're like what's up with that dog and he goes he must have gotten hungry. Oh yes yeah that's right and you look it up on halloween wicky. It's called like vowels dog or something kills. The mechanic kills his dog when he gets down. He goes to his old house. Kills a dog eats the dog and on was like wait. What and it's is that kind of detail i can. You imagine that being in the new movie in like a three thousand screen. Halloween twenty million dollar release. Where they're like was that with that dog and they say oh well. Michael myers him hungry. David yeah i've heard of halloween. Okay you've heard of hollywood. The holiday the famed holiday but hellofresh so both h. Is and i guess both syllables right. Yeah you got yellow right. Okay wind of halloween but hellofresh. Okay so continue your thought. Have you heard of it. i will now. I have either frequent bouncers. The show hello fresh. Fresh premeasured ingredients watering seasonal recipes. Seasonal like halloween. Like of halloween but hellofresh heard of them to like. That was the end of your sentence. Well thank you punch. It came a little late rakish. Mouth-watering seasonal recipes are delivered. Right to your door right to the doorstep like when michael maier shows up a doorstep with a knife except instead of a knife. It's a meal kit too much better situation because you don't have to fear being attacked and you do get to save time. You'd otherwise spend meal planning and shopping chopping now. I'm not talking chopping michael. Meyer style. Where you're you're chopping up your enemies right and that's actually a thing. I probably should have latched onto no. I'm talking chopping vegetables. Because you know you know when you're making a recipe and you're like okay here. I go making my recipe and then it's like chop up and oh by this is gonna take forever going chop onion now hellofresh. It's in the little package already. I'll chop for you and you just port right in right you keep your your butcher knife. You're cleaver wh- kind of nights. Does he use. It's not a butcher knife. it's a it's a. It's a big old kitchen knife from units our big knife. Yeah what's funny is i just. I think that is a stabbing knife. I don't even think of that having a practical use within just a knife but the point is keep it sharp so the only thing you gotta use it for is the god damn jack alantic carving sure and you know hellofresh..

"Yeah it evolves in devolved so smooth and just like it just looks dumb and kind of weak it's just whereas tesla is good. This looked so good and with more money. They never get this right. Got it right in the movie. I didn't love how k to do a little. That's an example of this movie. They go to the the five and dime and they paint a halloween. And the david gordon green who they probably spend ten thousand dollars on more fascinating and you you you in the cheaper sequels under think it in the twenty million dollar blunt house movie you over think it yeah and this is just like like i said many things in this movie oft imitated never improved upon also think you also don't get that close to it in show i will say i believe for the you know there's always stores like we found the original mask and we made a mold of classic and falcon razor exactly but it's like it's the magic of movies is best summarized by these fuckers just spray painted a mask and it's the most iconic image and no one can figure out just they cut the holes too big shaved eyebrows off right but i'm looking at this. I'm looking at pictures of him in halloween. Four and h two hour you can see is and it's just so pitiful. I i don't like it. I also think there's something to like. God is so fucking bad. And he looks like there's something he's got like a sad expression frowning as blonde to right you have the weird pouty shannon to begin with right once you know what shatner you can never unsee the shattner lobes in the mouths. But then there's talk of like. They don't really make masks like this today for halloween costumes. Where it's like if your kid in your dressing up as captain kirk you get the fucking uniform and a wig. You don't wear a mask that's replicating this adult man's face right. They mostly sell mass for characters who have faces that cannot be replicated with like a grease paint or whatever. And i do find that when you do see masks like rubber overhead mass like this that a replicating human faces. They usually caricatured. You know you're seeing like you're like absurd dinesh mass. Where's there's something about an era about like this being dawn post company trying to as realistically as possible captured the flesh of william shatner. It's such a weird image down here of all nine different designs across all so bad. Some of them look so feeble. But there's some of them have really intense eyebrows like eyebrows painted onto the mask. There's just a weird amount of detail and trying to capture a very neutral expression which in and of itself is odd. And there's like the one sheikh that is more defined than the other sort of lying in there like all the shit that just hardware. It's like that's an odd product when you look at the unpainted mask as it existed. It's odd it's weird that it has real hair like everything about it is strange. it's great. it's great we talked about it. It's incredible much like the the sort of eerily empty streets and the overabundance of music but perfect music. It's just as exercise in in minimalism and cost efficiency that inexplicably in this movie hit. Hit the bullseye yeah I wanted to briefly. Talk about what i wrote. Down as the sequence where luma says he's on his way I love when he. He's just him commandeering the truck and killing the person. I love the clothes. Line the speed at which he disappears from the clothes line is the point where it's like you almost to wonder. Is this literal or is this now. Is she seeing him to such an extent that it's starting to affect her mind. She thinks it's right clothesline. One two seconds looks back not trays and he doesn't move that it's you start to wonder how much of this is affecting her psychological. Okay so this is say. I wanted just really quickly. I just want to ask so i feel like you've you've seen this thanh david you've seen the sataan griff as well do any of you as many time. Okay yeah do any of you. Have you ever noticed the poster and haroo. I noticed that yesterday. And i what it's It's a cat right. It is not as a room. she's babysitting. She watches the original thing with her. Yeah they've watched the thing they do they. Do we check back in on how that movies playing out. It's a man with a hat to a painting but a poster and it says james ensor never like knew this before. I looked up at like my favorite fucking painter of all time he is. He's a belgian painter. He apparently had a lot of influence on expressionism and surrealism like kind of like an early practitioner. And he is just a fucking dang ass freak unmasks skull fucking skull. Yeah people like kind of dressed up in fancy clothes but they're wearing skulls just like this really completely outsider are almost but in but at the same time he has training and like come from money but like seems like was a fucking crazy person. So he gets the official dea f. qualification absolutely okay so i just feel like that was a fun little easter egg that i heard for the first time. It was very excited by So i recommend people check out answer as Been what do you think of. When they revealed that he's dug up the grave. Are you a fan of grave robbing absolutely. Yeah knocking over headstones or stealing them. Well i would say it's not cool to knock over a tombstone. You know if it's your family like it is here. What do you mean. Well you steals his sisters right headstones. Then i sign off on. Okay you know. Yeah yeah it is. One even is one of those lingering things of itchiness in this movie that that is never. The headstone has seen. But the dug up graves. Never yeah you don't you don't see the body or anything that fat or do you know what has happened. The headstone is his most elaborate. What i was gonna say bit but it's beyond a bit really. It's also kind of like what's the person. She's not not a who. Who is it who sees the babysitter. With the judith headstone. Is it laurie. Everyone else has been killed in. But like she's like is. She like the judy right. Like judith. everyone's like house. That's the murder. Every town has one of those small towns. Imagine it's only been fifteen years. They know we had hole in our town but continues. That's the whole word. Mayor was where where the world opened up and people were sucked into it. But i do love him coming to town killing the mechanic along the way not that you need to explain where he gets and this is now like something that in a new movie. They'd be like really to explain where he gets. The jumpsuit set survey. The new literally does do that right. It's like yeah kills guy gas stations and it was at my screener. It certainly now has all become like terminator two where you have to explain where they get the cool close but i just like the sort of sequence where lewis is on the trail and he finds the dead body and he finds the dug up grave and then he i know he's going home bass that's it. I know mixture. i just love that louis. Like his pulse never quickens. It's just kind of like. I knew this day was coming. From the moment. I saw this existed on this plane. I knew my life would be committed to trying to mitigate the damage of this soul at this point. This is where i was blown away because now there's the music right now is just going wild and then it just basically cuts to darkness and it just goes from daytime to nighttime when the babysit when everyone sort of made their plans for the baby sitting with all the business of all come here you'll come burial let me in and then just suddenly like you see tail lights and the music gets a little bit more menacing and now it's nighttime and the breathing starts again. We should also mentioned. Michael does spend a lot of this movie driving around in a station wagon which is like a big point of contention amongst fans of how he learned how to drive in right. They mentioned that in the movie right. They say he can't drive..

"Hill influence comes in sort of like lorries sense of her character and her responsibility or forgetting her schoolbook and throughout all of this like the music is doing so much heavy lifting. Because it's daytime it's mundane. It's kids going to school and then you're just hearing this pulsating flexing music with these super wide shots from across the street watching these people walk around in your leg after the prologue like you're saying griffin it's like is this someone's pov why we across the street walk them. Walk around your said attention all the time right. It's that thing where i just think it remains the most effective thing that horror movies can do with their camera which is personalized the camera. At least even in spurts of course right. It connects it to the psychology of in this case the villain right and then ultimately kind of uses your identification with the villain to watch the heroin right from afar in a way. That's incredibly tense uncomfortable. And then it just becomes like a series of opportunities for him to compose these immaculate frames of michael's. Sorry we have to talk about the shape of shapes shoulder. Just standing there with his heavy breathing on the soundtrack heavy breathing. Comic was the end credits. Stinger of the last halloween movie was like you can just put that at the end of the credits with no footage and people are sitting there at the theater going that breathing. That's the good breathing like it's good breathing. And the every shot of holding off on the reveal of him with his shoulder in the frame from across the street watching these just like well. You're talking about the shot of her in the class and she looks at god's so iconic scary because there's also something about being in the classroom like in school and knowing that that thing is just lurking outside all the lurking like him by the hedge him among the laundry right then the classic horror movie thing. Now that i feel like har- movies now trying amp up a little with a sting or a noise of the you see someone you look away the subway on kind of thing as we as i'm saying from my long context all new all now the but now all things every movie i listed prior to this. You don't have any this. Is i'm doing it so exciting. That classroom shot that the holds for a weird amount of time. The reveal of him there. And then you'd just lingering and nothing further happening and it just. Your blood is something abhorrent once yes. You don't think there's anything wrong with it. You're just like okay. Right weird thing i saw. There's it's halloween. There's some guy outside and a mask and then be third and fourth and fifth time to see her performance which is really subtle and well modulated being like am. I seeing things. What is going on in the classroom when they're having this kind of very silly but very fun conversation where their fate never changes your subject your own fate the kind of thing honestly echo that in the new ones you could bring all of that back because now that's become lorries forty years. This is a boring point. But like what you're saying is like this movie has flashing to that is not in earlier har- and now feels like so artful and quiet and not splashy at all even to pay homage to this. Now you couldn't be this subtle living with the green movie. He's trying his best to pay homage. But it still blame house movie in twenty eight team that needs to be more elaborate. And then the i. We're talking about this last night. Like you have to look at now. All circling back full circle to pre halloween. You have to look at independent. Like house of the devil. Yeah type is going to say to where it's just like has very little money and it's just like this is great but it's also going for like seventies for efficiency. His lean howard hawks. Yeah be western brain efficiency of like lashes guenon. Good guys bad guys confrontation. Get out your also. Like i mean the the green halloween has like fifteen different perspective points. This the it's got the podcasters it's got the crazy doctor. It's got our grandmother. Has an ensemble yet. Has supporting characters like linda. Anne and they has these three girls and the doctor has seen. The cough has a couple of those right sharing scenes with guests. They are one hundred percent. And obviously tommy eventually will be played by tom. Paul ryan and in halloween. Six of course You know her her babysitter and things like that like the sequels are always trying to go back to this movie. Like who haven't we like plug. And now the kyle richards. The girl is in the new one. The yeah from richard. She's in the she's an hills playing lindsay again. Who is one who is now. Live babysitting her in this movie. She is now one of the real housewives and his the girl who gets shot in thirteen. Correct yeah lindsey. While other richard sister who. I think it's kim richards in assault on precinct thirteen. Kyle's house why they were. They're both in the universe. And but i hope i hope that the plot of the new one is just like lawry's babysitting even though she's a fifty year old marine. Yeah baby you got like a shotgun or whatever. Anyway we can. We can zoom out for a second talk about two two fundamental things. I don't know how much new we have to say about them. But i do feel like we have to stop and say the shape as much as possible called the shape. Anthony michael hall is gonna play tommy in the new tang. Who paul replace him and could they. They couldn't get red well. It's complicated is is ignoring our thing is you can tell rudd has aged at all that would be the real is. Where's your mom. Brian andrews like just stopped ac. I forgot i forgot that i knew that it ignored four five and six forgot to. I forgot that it ignores. That's that's the that's the thing it does. That's wild that there's a halloween sequel about jamie. Lee curtis many years later that is very indebted to two and then they did another one that ignores too and they both are. What if we check in with. Laurie strode later. Well choose your own adventure and one of is twenty and one of them's for twenty one forty and they both are about trauma like but but she has different trump in one. I have to get my brother and the other one is like that fucking kyw came after. What time do you like the twenty or the forty better. I think the forty is probably better. I have a soft spot for the twenty to twenty is so close to being a good movie. I always had us spot for it. I even had a poster for it. My basement great post had never seen it. We watched it before. It's like the new one two minutes long. How is this one credits. Come up at like seventy seven social. Also i was. I was like oh. This movie's good it's fine. We love nineties. Whatever faculty dimension we watch movies kind of fast not that good and you really wanted to be good..

"The boogeyman out. There there's a quote from carpenter here. That i really love about what we're taught him that i wanna read. Which is that when they were shooting. The final shot which i love the shot of pleasants. Yes yes pleasants was like i can give you. I knew this was going to happen. And i can give you. I can't believe this happened right and carpenter was like i definitely knew that it was probably going to be. I knew this was going to happen. But he gave me both and he left the decision in my hands. Which is the mark of a great actor. That's carpenters opinion where he's like. Pleasants is just like a guy. Who's like i'll do any. I'm an actor. I can face you need. You'll you'll figure it out later. He's not like no loomis would would definitely do this. He's he's a swissarmy pleasant. I love down pleasants. He's donald places. The fucking best begins one of the most prominent people for me that it's like for fifteen years. I was like the guy from halloween. And then i was like oh he was a massively famous over. But yeah for me just forever and ever. He's in he's also in so many halloween did watch them all and he's in what conservatively six of them. Well he's not in threes. i guess he's in is a one to four five aunts. And then you've got mcdowell you know given his spin an he's up through sex through six six is the one where he's he's really on his last legs. I mean i think you said this murphy said on mike or you said before recording. But that like his first choices. Peter cushing second choice was christopher. Lee's obvious obvious. He wanted to emerge is right but aside from the baggage the associations of them thorough also guys who look like they belong in horror movies right like early seventy eight. They've been in her maps twenty-five also just a face print the bone structure. Both of those guys pushing skeleton man right. Who whose like wearing a little bit of skin just to convince. He's not a skeleton and christopher lee long elegant phase and he's very intense is and whatever like you put them in a horror movie. They feel like they belong. There's something about pleasants who feels like despite the fact that this character become so big firm and he does other horror movies and other carpenter movies and whatever that he doesn't totally feel like he belongs in this world without also feeling like oh shit. This is weird. That alec guinness's in star wars. Reynaud where it's a clear like. I'm gifting you the prestige. It's instead just like this is like a real guy. This is just like an adult man who is now caught up in this horrible thing. Also because if peter cushing had been in it. When i saw i would've been like becker year after star when i saw this all i thought was that's dr loomis. Right and the development of this is so that's a whole other thing you could talk to me in the movie because his daughter liked the score for escape from new york which is more from Assault on precinct. Thirteen nine right now. The buzzer facetime daughter. The budget for this movie was three hundred thousand dollars. He got paid twenty five thousand dollars. Pretty good it's bright and fifty percent of the budget is the cameras and the lenses and a lot of my reading. I feel like in this like independent phase of his career. It's just been really wild to just like kind of get like more a glimpse into just how random weird rich people would just pay for. These things are weird guy and this guy check like what does he know. But he's like. I don't know here's three hundred thousand dollars. Also it was the anecdote. I read somewhere that he was pitching. The movie to a cod cod was filming. Mustafa cod one of the all-time names agreeing backed him. That message. akhad bright was doing this big epic. Yeah and carpenter was like i could do this for three hundred thousand dollars and a cod like took a moment in the movie on making right now cost three hundred thousand dollars a day and it is driving me crazy if this guy thinks he can actually get the whole thing done in that amount of time. I'm willing to take a flyer on that. It's like kinloch in teenagers. Diana yeah okay then you can have right right and carpenters. Not even like. I have to make this movie. He just like ironic. I wanna keep making movies. this is the level. Someone's gonna let me work at right now. Also pitching to him as a business proposition where he's sort of. I think giving the full alex ross. Perry manifesto it's worth saying. Here's what's been going. Here's what's been working could work off of this this is. Why don't you many locations. Why don't you many actors like all the sort of stuff and he goes like find. Yeah why not who knows who cares. Lake and i think by his own. Admission was just sort of like this is a flyer who gives a shit and then once this movie hit big he was like i am keeping my fingers around the search for this guy. Any of the stuff nice gave him no money to create a cut. Son is still like i know. They're still weird shit with like. It's a lot easier to make merchandise of the halloween sequels than of the original film via cod. Cod dies in a terrorist attack. But his son is now in charge of the season. He was the one who green lit the zombies right. And then now. The the gordon green right because the sequels had studio participation. I think he has less complete control whereas anything that's rooted in the first movie. It's like cannot happen without a cod son. Given the thumbs up but also these people love money. Yes they've been making money off of years because they're all fucking neck toys the action for your company that makes a lot of a horror. Movie stuff has been producing a ton of like halloween. Three halloween too. And everyone's like why. Can't you make halloween one. And they're like halloween. One cost like eight times as much halloween. The mcfarlane toys. Michael myers merchants by light. I'll get back to that later. I had that but Everything from david you know. I love when you narrate a poster engineer. Reid the halloween poster for me please. And not.

"I live in a house in a cultist was i was similar terrified. I just remember being like jason is scary. Freddie scary jason takes frightened. He's taking jason freddie or more superficially. Scary things like basket case and creepshow. What he's really grotesque buying those two life that they were scary. But right around the corner from where you grew up. Yeah right on. Sixth avenue absorbed. He's scared me takes place. But i'm not scared of freddie in the same way because i don't think anyone's invading my dreams i'm not going to end. That's my ultimate. Because i love sleeping. And if someone fucking there's mess with my shitless. I'm not scared of jason. Mike onus summer camp anytime soon seniors. I do go to lake where he refused. Bence jeans off the dock. That's true when that's the shot wasn't anyway but n- chucky because of choice could moore people fucking second. I had genuine problems. Yeah not january. I would get scared. Because once i learned of the concept of there's like a serial killer. What's that it's the person who goes around killing people tapping into that for you. It's probably the first time in a hearing about it in a significant way. Okay what what. When was this you can like nine or ten years old something like but so was this before after you would have seen scream which is a first horror movie for a lot of people. I had not seen soccer game. I think i was aware of scream. This is before scream. But then i became aware of but i thought screen was like a comedy you know and scream is such an mtv movie meta and it's very probably insisting about this. When screen came up. There hadn't been a horror movie released in theaters like that for seven. Yeah so a lot of people that was the first time they sat in a theater and watch a slasher movie. But this is interesting late to. There's a crystallization of your understanding of serial killers existing as the guiding right. And also the name that you could make a movie with that structure. Right both are tied to michael. Myers comes the entire concept for you across reality and art and i see the movie and as a teenager. I don't know when i saw it. I first time but it was on television. But by that point emma sinophile budding cinema sitting there beret your cigarette holder on the board already appreciate and then. There's yes. I don't know if i should tell do it. There's a. there's a moment sometime in my teenage extolling halloween to somebody a couple of friends english people while you're on vacation right. Unfortunately we use of holiday. Just show up in erin. City i i'm describing. I think the scene where. Loomis and sheriff in the myers home. And they're you know poking around and then like the windows something falls through the window. Got her it's a guy and you know it's a good jump and it's it's you know. Obviously there's nothing to it right. Great moment and i think i described the scene loudly. I think describe it as a pipe coming through the window and for years my friends would repeat me saying like crash. A pipe goes through the window. Which i don't think i ever said i think they bought it became a play it again. Sam exactly you really like me. If my if the two people who know what i'm talking about are listening. They know they know they know you by screaming crash all the time if i ever got excited about anything ever again in any context where i would become more animated because i feel get animated. That's that's why. I was afraid to say it on our part of the glossary. Now it's in the lexicon. Exactly so i don't know why i'm bringing this back into my life. But the and. I want ben to offer some of his ben's holding a carpenter book yet. I want to just quickly say i also. I cannot remember for the life of me exactly when this was but there was two consecutive weekends. When i was like twelve where i saw. It must have been the sci-fi channel. One friday showed all the halloween movies. And i was at like maybe i was eleven and at seven or eight o'clock i was like oh watch this and the next thing i know it's seven in the morning and i can't sleep and i'm terrified and the next week. They did friday the thirteenth and is remember these marathons and but halloween similarly. I was like well. I'm not at a lake. And i don't have any reason for jason to come after me in front of me. Yes yeah however. I do have fear that some guy might just walk into this house and stabbing because really the street books. Not unlike my own. I didn't live in the suburbs. But i still i. I lived on a quiet street in new york city. And but swear to god. I do think that's the brilliance of this movie is right. It's like the said this. I think i've said this on this before but the suburbs feel so safe. Obviously that's how they're designed see. You know it's funny. I think the services is being very terrifying. But i wonder if it's only because because they're quiet as well but are supposed to feel safe right place sure. Of course my kids can run around here but then it's like well if a guy with a knife wanted to kill you all you do is open one door. No wasn't why. I find them scary. Whereas i look at slasher movies like as a kid and i'm like i live on the eleventh floor. I'm to me but like end. Like one of the most brilliant moments in this movie is. She's hammering on the on the door and the light comes on and nothing else happens and then she has to go to the next. I mean it's so good and it's so unspoken downs and helping you out. I am really ripped me watching this movie for the first time and many other times. That's what's so magical about it and then like yeah like you look out your window and you're just like the look out the window on this movie fifteen times and it's just like there's nobody out there i am realizing this is why i think i'm so much more. Scared supernatural chat another scary thing. That's in this movie is just getting stuck into like boring conversations with people that live in the town with you got. That is another part of the suburbs. That is though. Were many a horror film. Of course that early senior. It's like bad creek. Just kidding not an ad read sorry. it's me alex. Cutting in to my own.

"Also the year of john williams's superman score score. Also his score for the fury which is a great score. Yeah there's a lot of scores but this is you're exactly this. This is what we were saying in the car when we were trying to find a tunnel back from new jersey to new york. Fruitlessly is like the sort of disreputable ability right. It's not a word what's the word i'm looking for the going the disreputable nature of things rock and roll or heavy metal or hard right and then the sort of fifty year arc of these thirty or thirty year art of bands that are regarded like ben like punk metal bands loud vulgar trash as these movies all could have been and then forty years later. It's like well iron maiden so out two shows at barclays center every two years. And that's seventy thousand people buying a ticket to a band. that has never had a mainstream crossover. And it's like an halloween. You can re the reboot it and it makes two hundred million dollars or you can repackage and people will buy the new blu ray. The new box sadly these fans they belong to the things they love and the things they love belong to them. This is just like this perfect object but also that they create industries in the certain way where you're like me. I'm speaking my ass here. But like graphic tees of things from pop culture are things that children wear to bed. Right sure i do feel like adults wearing. Tv shows of the a. T. shirts media. They like is a thing that really gets pushed through by four wearing a t shirt. And i'm wearing halloween horror thon wearing l. o. Fan but but we recognize this guy talking about sequel. Let see turn to me. Is the creature. No no no no no. This is one of the hostages from halloween three seasons. Of course how to be fair. It looks a little creature from the black. Oh no it. Doesn't david stupid. I get the point black lagoon things green. Well he's green green guy. Red red is well. So is oscar the grouch. He's never dies go. I started saying he doesn't have hood on round appearances. Right is the thing that really formulates from the hor- community and demand of we want to meet these people who otherwise would never be recognized. Grocery store will line up for hours to to meet them for forty dollar autographs right. The kane hodder vacation of your contract existed but that modern fan journalism if we can call it that is closer in tone to goria then things like variety and hollywood reporter absolute right and even the tone of shit like deadline or whatever is closer to paint gloria shine large. Then you're also looking at shit like the endless re-releases repackaging of home video releases. Well there's a very important transition into carpenter. Yes carpenters career. Obviously this is his third film. This is nine hundred. Seventy eight goes to mars. His penultimate film is two thousand. One right sure. These are the this is to to with no quotation marks. This is the era of vhs. The first vhs is are made and marketed. From hollywood movies in nineteen seventy eight from fox and paramount. Two thousand one. I think the first year that dvd sales overtake pretty. That's when that's when you're harbors corinne stream people are everyone's starting by Carpenters career lines up in a van diagram. It's just inside the circle attest. Vhs era and he has. His legacy is really formalized by vhs. I every one of his films. Whether you have a a halloween clam shell like if you're a horror fan having the carpenter collection on your shelf. These are just beautiful. Tape of great films that the aesthetics obviously made for theatrical distribution are intrinsically linked to home video. You made a point of watching us on. Vh i've had us episode vhs. I've had for over twenty years. And then today you took or posted a photo of your a baby daughter holding. The vhs grabbed it off the table. When i was feeding the cats and i came back and she just had my halloween tape in her hands. Grab a little hands. But but was that the moment you truly became a father for the first time that you felt the pride it could have been. It'd be too bad if i waited eight months for that. But but i was very guy. She was close enough to the coffee table in a chair. She was restrained and came back from feeding the cats and she had my halloween tape in her hands was very exciting. This is what you're saying. Carpenter became emblematic of owning your filmmaker. Because he came out right when you could do that and then made movies that our lean mean ninety minute films you want to rewatch all the time and you would like to own them because they have beautiful artwork beautiful posters beautiful graffiti. And you want to have these films in your collection but not in the way you wanna have the star wars trilogy. It's much more of a of a personal thing. It's not like everybody owns superman on vhs. Everybody owns match on vhs. It's like oh not. Everybody owns the thing on vhf. I'd be dave. I with a physical media. I abandoned vhs trying to get you back to it for your species fucking thing's gonna go do what. I have stacks of things on the floor. That i don't know how to organize. I've been telling david for years. He needs to get a vcr. I told him i would get a wedding present. I told him i get him. One is a baby shower present. He won't let me by him. Vcr i do think. I've started circling back around. Nothing needed fucking skews for another collection. But they're certainly beaches as i held onto for very long time right certain key movies but then also things that for a long time weren't released on dvd even when they finally came out. I stopped like ponding off my old. Vhs is and served circling back certain things because there are movies that their movies where you have an install gic association to them in that foreign because that's how you sought and even though it's not the proper presentation of that movie it hit some spots right. I'm watching a wide screen. Movie like halloween on vhs for the tenth time but then ours genres. That sometimes actually weirdly. If not benefited from that formante dane. Some sort of adjacent parallel power in that matt after it almost works as a different cut of the film. it's moving over edges. It's abstracting things in a way that certainly helps with horror movies being produced on a budget. Also things where you're dealing with like patches of darkness you know and there are plenty of those in this movie. Yeah dark movie. is it dark movie. There joke is that they couldn't afford lights. But they're also couldn't afford extras. Which is one of these many things that makes many of the scenes in this movie. Just staggeringly weird and very very off putting an entirely unnatural way in purely mundane environment. Absolutely there are. I counted does when i wrote this down because date when david and i went for a walk. Recently you were talking about Contacts background and you were like well. That's fine because he was there to say about halloween. The movie itself. How's talking about your year characterize. I did not say that. This is also like one of my favorite movies ever and we haven't even talked about my experience with how i wanna hear annabel carpenter but i wanna say one thing. I i go five sequences in this movie k four of are short and then one of which is forty five minutes long. That's the construction. Background is yes. This movie is prologue loomis. At the hospital right. A bit of context hatfield at school. Loomis coming into hadn't field and the girls going after school. Then it's nighttime forty minutes and then that's the it'd be connected five sequences okay. I will say this. I was terrified of this movie. Before i saw it i was. This is the scariest. Turn the world to me. I knew what it was about. I knew it was about a guy. Called michael myers win around and stab people. When i learned this when i was like ten or whatever i would i had never heard anything so scary my entirely because i was such a big scaredy cat and i was such a video store kid and i would look at these h. Xboxes that would terrify me. In the concept's terrify me. If i come on tv. They tear me. I don't remember. Ever scared of. Michael myers in that way. You lived downtown. You did that..

"I just think it's interesting. They can be in the library of congress or the rock and roll hall of fame. But it doesn't mean that john carpenter's waiting to get an honorary oscar. That people are going to be like legitimately as cinema as we like to protect it. We're letting this one end. Yeah that's a great slasher which is a genre of horror carpenter will he could probably will this year. They should and also it's just like they're starting to branch the you know like he's on a long right right but that would be insane as someone who was in it would represent the grand art of these would appeal getting screenplay. Oscar kinda comes from if feels like some full circle moment a seal of intimacy ever. Yes a movie. That just quotes halloween. Like it feels like them being like fuck we should have. We should pay some respect to john. It's just one of those things where you can look back at. Nineteen seventy eight and be like the score. This halloween should won an oscar for score. One in seventy ever should've been nominated. At least i think the thing is. I checked my best score nineteen seventy-nine. I hope you check it to the wing on it. No homing was on checking my ballot. And i and i saw. It's not the winner. I have days of heaven anyway. Marconi's or for any of the listeners. Who don't know david has a How far back does it go back to. Nineteen twenty eight. Oh my god. Spreadsheet nights twenty-eight what he would give the oscar to in every category five nominees and some people think like. Oh it's just the main original score there but so but is that wrong. I have to now. I was sort of shaking. Because i was like. Obviously i must have carpenter winning score here. And i don't deserve heaven obviously. I can't picture it right now. I could sing all of it. But like i could. I could sing. I could book of then. You could go to carnegie hall and saying all of the days of heaven score. I mean the halloween theme. Obviously problems or gone that can be a patriot. Bonus therapy of human one night.

"I think is is that set in brooklyn a brooklyn heights. Moving sentinel is indeed set in brooklyn moving nine hundred seventy eight serandon martin walsum the the sentinel has like a cast of. I'm not mistaken gardner. Right there are like golden age actor urges meriden if they made a brooklyn heights horror movie. Today it'd be about The coffee shop. Running out of oat milk brooklyn so let's terror lou. Respond to that he he. He took his shot shot. We admire you for that two more of these movies. The legacy nineteen seventy-eight universal. Sam elliott and katharine ross. A yes this is a very sexy movie. Excuse me also. The poster is a cat divided by an and their smoke underneath the cat. And there's an evil hand coming out of the bottom of the cat. It's a great poster. We have crazy. What is this. I could use a little more. Sam elliott on the post sort of isolated. Richard marquan director. Just before that. It's a pretty solid movie. And then nineteen seventy eight the final one on this list Invasion of the body snatchers united art restraint movie. Yes these are. These are kinds of seen most of these films just to be clear. These are repeating the same stars give to christie movies. You have to sutherland. Movies like there are high class. Actors were dipping their toe into horror and staying there. Yes now that is kind of the the extent of mainstream studio horror film making between rosemary's baby and the release of halloween. So you understand. What the list. I just read and describe most of those movies just how different hunting. Nothing about this any nothing. Even a lot of these are supernatural A lot of these are vaguely sifi. Jason there's one other element that unites these that we're going to talk about a minute. And they tend to be a little more psychological paranoia based they also largely take place in very as david said very moneyed very high class situations. None of these are about children It's almost exclusively about adults. Because you because i imagine part of the calculation and partly it's they're based on these books that are often about but like it's yeah. We're gonna need a gregory peck or who have right like we. We're gonna need a big serious star to ground this thing Because of them are also about sort of like the threat to the family. You may one hundred percent for that. I mean obviously the exorcist is decent. So here's four the we're gonna we're gonna talk about the the mount rushmore. Because you're absolutely right. Here's the mount rushmore of the four and again one of these. It's just after halloween. The whole point of this is trying to conceptualize went. Halloween comes out. How could this movie be such a big deal How could it go so far against the current of the genre so the four movies. Mount rushmore right. Rosemary's baby injure. That's george washington the exorcist okay. That's abraham lincoln the omen okay. That's teddy roosevelt. Amityville heart for some reason. That's jefferson seventy right now. The one thing was the one thing i'll for these movies having come. Okay so sorry just to go through it again. It's a rosemary exorcist. Amityville horror and the omen or the four. These are the four most successful horror movies of i know amityville is one year after halloween but of this deck all about having children to some extent. That's true apart from amity even in these kids you know you know you know who i'm talking about. You love this guy. Wait what the main threaten knows. Form of himself. Yes the dark print. who's podcast. yeah this is. This is the darkest podcast right before biggest. Most successful movies in the they all are literally about satan rosedale baby what if satan fuck your wife the baby and you don't what what if you love your wife to say the omen. What if your kid was the devil the exorcist if your kid got infected with the devil right what if you into the devils head to tear. Is i guess the least demonic haunting. Also for god's sake get out for god's sake right but the demon pay was just sort of religious sense of of demonic hor- i would say also the indisputably the trash. Yes well i know. You don't like amityville. I don't hate it i just feel like it is the one that i'm going to explain to you why you think that off rain man. There is some episode where you were like amityville and it was pretty bad and we're like in the car listening to an hit break a twenty violent brother we love but she knows amityville she would just went. Oh come on now. Because he's very we watch it. It's quite strong. I also recommend visiting. I should wish you revisit what i also recommend visiting the medieval house over enamel ville right now okay. So here's the success of these four movies. Just to contextualized how much satanic evil people were eating up for this ten year rosemary's baby to oscar nominations to forty nine adjusted gross. It wins was nice. She said five. Ninety seven million. Ten osborne gets the screenplay wind right. I think yeah. Let me look it up. I in doesn't win in one at that point. No she wins the next year but it. Let's get one free and sound. Yes okay there. Yeah i mean. Obviously it's a it's a great year but the interest is just insane outlier of success but it will. It's simple comfortable with horror the devil satanism and religious horror say. That's what's weird about the exorcist. is that. it's almost kind of potluck. Popular with christians rangan. Normally be into that. They're into it shows and explicit. That's the thing like you're pushing boundaries with the extra language where it's gone beyond the gore. The language girls mouth threat saying great great. So fucking good. The fiery rate is my favorite hara. French it's one of those things like freakin. Just he's fucked it up so bad now like oh sure a couple of years ago. He screened like a at most mixed ep and i know people who saw it and they were like. It's fucking trash shirt. What he has done to this. I didn't did his his re coloration of french. He made it look like inside loon davis and he was. It was always supposed to look like running. I liked when he added the going spider. Walk versions you've never seen was a solid solid. Although i still don't prefer it no i wouldn't put it on now now anyway but then also that dementia documentary where he talked to like the exorcist. As one million year old italian is harry potter is the devil. And you're like what is this move. Missed out loud scream at freakin. like you're jewish. You're interested in this guy. And he has the vibe of like anyway he doesn't want them saying also freaking. The keep is the guardian out there who look in the original re blank. Check arc guy. In my opinion you know bankrupt. You'll do him fund. I'll go back to my usual lane for that. Sure the omen. Two hundred. Seventy seven million adjusted to oscar nomination and also like jerry. Goldsmith has a song. the took a charter. it was on the billboard chart..

It's a big studio movie. It's a paramount moving. But it's just like this. It could also have just been a halloween. An embassy pictures it was but it was like a rounding error for paramount. Basically cheap lament nineteen seventy. One is a great movie. That fox makes called them a fiscal walls. Which is ellen. Alda playing a pianist. It is seen for seeing the same as rosemary's baby. It sounds like it's really halt kind of movie again. He watches a couple years ago. And it's like oh this is three years after rosemary's baby and they were like so enrolling. Baby john kassovitz an actor in this movie. We should make alan alda pianist. It's an mefissa waltz phil and he sells his older the devil to become a better pianist. It's actually really good as really fun. Alan alda pretty good in a horror movie contact coming for my soul. Paul wind coasts. That's his name. I don't wanna mention the next big one nineteen seventy-three movie actress big one of the most successful films ever i hit. We're gonna come back to it. But i just wanna say at this point worldwide. Five hundred ninety seven million adjusted warner brothers. Ten oscar nominations ray. It's one of the five precision also. The book was one of those books. I was not alive at the time. But i feel like it's one of those books that was on every coffee table. It was like a blockbuster book to again league. The book often helps here right if you're adapting from a bestselling novel. Have you know the cover. The famous every gary young children. Exactly you stay at. It'd be just decided this halloween. I'm going to reread the exorcist and read legion religion. You're gonna watch extra three or actresses through. I know i'm saying. Are you gonna do a rewatch marathon. Sometimes i haven't watched the exorcist. Every july fourth you text me about whatever like political thriller made the cut this year through. Yeah here's here's package not yet gonna. We can't get into it but there's a great movie on. Hbo called the maybe. It's on amazon now. Package with gene. Hackman tommy lee jones. Good cold war thriller. It's david movie anyway exorcist. Nineteen seventy-three huge weirdly. This i was actually surprised by nineteen seventy-three. Don't look now not a studio film art film. It is but i thought. Mgm made it. But i think that's just because i'm picturing the old. Dvd they had the home video rights for whatever. It's a british ally. Bears mentioning exist outside now weirdly by this time so classy also based on are quite classy star star search. Also he's fucking this genre some fucking this genre now in my chronology only five years away from halloween is very a-list. You're bringing tony but then there's just a few more but even at this point i i found it interesting that the palme has not really gone horror. No he's doing. Nineteen seventy two right. Yes yeah carries. Nineteen seventy six but then those are the only horror movies. He's made random of the paradise doesn't really counts. I mean obviously it's sort of har- nodding to it but he is not yet a horror film. carries united artists. So that's a studio movie. And then based on as you mentioned star driven out the but these ones some of these aren't quite horror hearth and somebody's going to come up again in a minute but just the the the rest of this list. Now from seventy four to seventy eight studio har- where it's starting to ramp up. Okay it's alive nineteen seventy-four warner brothers. Larry cohen's movie evil baby Stepford wives nineteen seventy five columbia. Rosemary's baby connection Ira levin levin or lewin eleven so again stepwise kind of horror kind of satire. Yeah but. That's a columbia movie kind of a hit. Nineteen seventy six. The omen fox huge. Hit coming back coming back to that night on it. Yeah nineteen seventy six burnt offerings. United artists distributed great movie. Amityville horror before amityville horror. David's avoiding eye contact via someone to face the wrath. People moving into a house that has evil totally good movie but amityville horror so burnt offerings. The seventy-six amityville har- book comes out. Seventy seven the true story is the move the tree of course the the true story book that that that definitely happened. The movie is when seven nine coming. I know that that's just after halloween. But i have to mention it in a minute. The rest of these seventy-seven audrey rose don't have you ever seen that creepy girl movie. I think there's a ghost. I think it has. It goes down then shift though even these. That's robert wise. I feel like these these eight years. You've covered right. We starting out with like oh. It's proven directors international arthouse. Oh tours this and that and often based on a bestselling we were breaking. Classy films can as you said be sold as a single feature right demon seed nineteen seventy seven. Usa christie evil technology. Moving ben demon seed never seen that evil technology. What if what if the computer. But if you gave your house. Computerized computer tried to make you make you pregnant. And what if a witch hacked that computer seventy-seven is also the sentinel which is universal Which i think is a movie that people have come back around you but these are the kinds of movies that started just have tons of stars from like the forty the sentinel is michael winner movie and if you grew up in britain which no one here did did relevant once. You know michael winner. Obviously he directed death wishes well and he is the new shock that i grew up your big. I am very big boy. Michael winner became a guy. Who would like you know. When he was like a pitch man. It was weird. Rector became this column called. Don't look it up. I don't know what it was called. Okay michael winner. Look it up winner. Takes it all know. Michael winner wrote a column for thousand columns winner's circle about restaurant reviews yes was this column called griffin does. Where does your brain does. Dinner winners dinners. He became this guy who had like wear cravat and say britain used to bring us to be better before and he would tail off. And you're supposed to learn shocking about and you really. Aren't you the guy who made these like trash. She has movies in the seventy. He's an odd figure. Anyway the sentinel. I think is is that set in brooklyn a brooklyn heights.

"ross perry" Discussed on Blank Check with Griffin & David

"This is the third carpenter film Before any of his other horror films. And i feel like coming on to kind of talk about what the genre was when he changed it forever with this film and what. He brought to it to conceptualize his innovations as a filmmaker director of the camera. Really and his use of music and writing is just so essential. Not just a halloween but to the rest of the carpenter miniseries. Can i just say just to sort of like frame. My blind spots. Yes i'm gonna say we're starting in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight okay because it this is all i wanna say. Is that like Certainly is not my my my genre of strength right in terms of moving knowledge to begin with but also i feel like in high school. I went through this period. Where i was just like a homework. Relevant i'm just gonna watch movies all the time worked really real. Mark is relevant. Your homework is the worst for losing. Its for losers and babies. And so i was very much like a systematically going through blind spots in sort of what i perceived as a fifteen year old of like my knowledge and stuff right so a lot of that was sort of what david was saying like. Oh i need to watch the first movie of every franchise. So i kind of like did that in them would move on because i was trying to cover as many of the icons as possible without going deep into them freddie and truck here the two guys that went deep on unsurprisingly they reflect the to stinkers right what else so freddie has so much practical effects in sort of fantasy elements very griffey science essentially a comedian and a toy. Right beyond that my hor preferences just in terms of aesthetics vibe or whatever not that position myself as being expert is like pre nineteen sixty german expression universal monsters right even sort of like a vincent price early vincent price roger giving you attentional. But there's i have a transition from that which is won't get. I'm glad you mentioned nineteen sixty because the first thing you have to mention is Which is the first movie of. Its kind. Halloween is a movie of its kind. There's nothing before psycho. That is like that that is like the president is movie is somebody picks up a knife and they use it as a guy who killed people they use the knife repeatedly to stab people through their body and then the person is dead and when they go to even say german movie german expressionist movie. M the guy kidnapping okay. He's he's psycho is what if there was a psych. I mean it is m is emma's less of a horror. Movie is more framed around trying to catch this. Yeah okay okay. He's really jumped down. Ben throat to correct him about obama spoke psycho nineteen sixty. Yes that is obviously a huge thing on also. When i was telling her about my thesis i was going to present and make sure you mentioned peeping tom which is sixty one Leaner maybe not. Let me look up sixty so those two movies. Nineteen sixty are kind of two sides of the coin. Opposite sides of the ocean and psycho is beloved get oscar. Nominations is a huge hit peeping tom. Essentially ruins a career peeping. Tom goes a very pathological movie. But psycho is a slasher at its heart. Moore's i think peeping tom is a very psychological that that's not really neta. It has these kind of murderous eating case the audience was like period. Where he's like psycho is like a rollercoaster. I've never seen peeping tom. Oh i know basic premise of this movie. It's a guy who's obsessed with the look on people's faces when they know they're about to die. He's a camera man and he builds a blade into one of the legs of his tripod. Like films women thinking that they're doing screen tests wrote. Oh my god can be remain about a podcast or now absolutely anyway. You're going to hear me say anyway a lot. We're going through this anyway. Here's one of the most important things about halloween. People who come to it. Always talk about. Always know halloween's independent. Movie very successful independent movie horror then becomes for many years something that is largely independent or very low budget studio movements. But not understand. How revolutionary is that in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight. There was an independent horror movie that became such a mainstream hit. I just want to very briefly. Talk about studio horror movies from nineteen sixty eight to nineteen seventy eight because everything. You're saying your luton movies. Your universal monsters horror was a studio thing right and it was a studio. And you're not gonna talk. Why sixty eight. Two things happened in nineteen sixty eight. Also it gives us a clean deck. Sure two things happened in nineteen sixty eight thirty two big banks studio big bang. Nineteen sixty eight is rosemary's baby. Sure there had not been a studio horror movie like rosemary's baby for years Rosemary's baby is produced by william castle. Who was a right purveyor of schlocky horror cheap thrills throughout the sixties is. You're saying you might gravitate more the tingler tingler guest. yes prowler. Thirteen goes so my kind of stuff. So johnny so yeah out. Well what if what if there was a tingling but there's like the haunting which is like a pretty tony studio movie ghost move right goes story. We'll get i'll get to the the the divergent why. It's a revolutionary to have a movie about a guy with a knife. But rosemary's baby kind of progresses your. I've written down here. Nineteen fifty-eight house on haunted hill. And the tingler. Those are william council movies. Very gimmicky. another thing. I just think worth mentioning very briefly. Is that in earlier decades. You would go to the movies and you would see a bill of shit and b. Movies were literally lethal backup. Movie and people would see horror. Films were the lesser films that were like the added value behind whatever the prestige movie were and by the sixties and seventies people are going mostly to see one on so there. You no longer have sixty minute. Boris karloff movies about a guy who opens the sarcophagus right which is always a markets. Be making movies for cheap because they need something play after me a crucial. We're not going into this. But a crucial sixties figure is herschell. Gordon lewis right who made gore. Yes totally violent cheap. Low budget. Independent movies throughout the sixties. It's not mainstream. Therefore it doesn't really factor into this conversation. But i'm not going to not mention godfather of gore godfather. The name of his documentary. I believe i've only seen lighting thousand maniacs wizard of gore's resident of gore faced which isn't egyptian thing right believe it was the circus and that color me blood. Red the gruesome twosome gore gore girls. All of his movies were terrific. But it's pure exploitation. I'm not talking about exploitation studio harm is these exploitation always exists parallel exists throughout the sixties but rosemary's baby is such a huge hip when you said that there hadn't been a film like roseanne his baby for years. Are you saying that. Essentially there's like a space between psycho and rosemary. That's not filled in essentially psycho universal rosemary's baby paramount the studios are not saying what a list top-shelf directors could make a horror movie that we are going to take very seriously and we end up with oscar nomination thing obviously based on a book if this very boozy movie about being middle-class and buying an apartment and having children very specific meal you and we're going to come back to that in a minute but i just want to quickly run down after that movie. There is up into halloween. Something of a boom of studios making horror films because it's a huge thing trend right. We'll try to copy them. There's not a ton of them but there are a handful. I'm going to run them down. And these are in order and on weirdly the first one of these is the only one that functions as basically an independent film but it is paramount film which is nine hundred..

"Sure you just see mild podcast. I'm trying to think of my pleasants. I was i was going to do. This isn't a podcast. Big the big loomis speech. But then i realized i think i should not say and i'm about to say it is the blackest podcast devil bats units representing two different audience. It really good. Call this recall. This is not the devils podcast. In fact sometimes feels that way go ahead and some people think yes yes and and everyone's entitled to their opinion but this is in fact. The podcast called blank check with griffin and david griffin. I'm david just turn it off which just started off right because we have a lot to get to today. It's a podcast about filmography. Directors who have massive success early on in their careers are given a series of blank checks. Whatever casey passion products they want and sometimes those checks clear and sometimes they bounce baby This is may series on the films of john carpenter. Yup it's called they podcast because i was overruled. Yup could call my ass. Yeah i feel good about that choice still to this day. I've read some of the comments. When murray put out the the miniseries scattered. And i thought podcast from new york was maybe like a good that we did actually really think. Oh i've never pitch. That pissed pied scape from newcastle. Right which was shown and we didn't like pretty vindicated by the comments. Saying why isn't this mini series named sweaty enough right. But here's the thing. None of them actually said a title. No not it wasn't like sometimes they're all in on like it should have been called x. What do we know is in the running. Yeah we know. I from you. Not from podcast from newcast. Pod troubling little cast. No one. there's one that just already is on my mind that makes perfect sense but in the pot of casas like that one. Yeah that salt on podcast. Thirteen i feel was thrown out at one point. That was like yeah that was that was another good option. But come on they podcast. That's fun that's good. They do they do we. Do we do podcast now. And i'm happy to be in person with you guys person person for the first time in two years now for us. Yeah oh easily right Yeah when was the last time something. David's apartment right last memory of being a studio and i think it was probably a year before that well. We'll oh Spiderman commentary yeah davidson. But that's twenty nine thousand years ago. Yeah pretty much. Almost to the day Oh boy and i gotta say you know cats out of the bag. This is our halloween episode. Aggressive guest is director filmmaker. Alex ross perry. Everyone and i feel triumphant about this. That's like all right so what's he doing memoirs imminent visit game. What everyone's sense everyone's filmography there all right and i. It's a big surprise. Yes you decided to break your your streak of trying to pick the most irrelevant should be doing one of those david of the damned would have been memoirs memoirs. There's only one i've never seen. Yes at this point but david has like cold watching someone who means a lot but at how many minutes after the end of march madness that i call this episode You didn't do it during honestly. I think it was during the final day carpenter wins. I want halloween. You were very angry. On one of the march madness. Updates casually said carpenter essentially created a genre and you kind of blew up both of us over the amount. He didn't blow me up. This happened to greeley. yeah. I didn't get blown. Maybe i blew up privately. Maybe i you up person. No you blew me up over not knowing the movie burnt offering offerings mad at me about not knowing about this box office. Yes guys were reading and maybe he blew you up because you said he and brennan genre. He had separate well opposite separate times. Several hours separated them. Here's the facts. I think two things one. I was very hurt by my pathetic and embarrassing loss in march madness and i wanted to just okay. I wanna talk about that for exactly five minutes very briefly. Talk about danes to my wanting this from wanting episodes. Let's time on the clock just for just just to be clear at march madness We had some friends of the show. Pick directors right this year. We let macy's we're going to do in this year. We mix it up and we had one region where we picked eight of our favorite recurring guests and let them each pick director. And i said to. Alex would you want and you guys really should consider covering oliver style. I think we should put five minutes on the clock. now. I know you're saying you want to say something. I let's have this count for the five minutes. I put five minutes on the clock. Say something i told you when you said alverson. I was like alex oliver stone is not going to win a single twitter poll. He's not cool. He's the opposite of what people on twitter interested in. I'm just saying i warned you. I'm like are you talking about bulletproof case like you guys to cover. I said anybody who loves this. Show the way. I uh-huh will instantly be like that is five months of incredible episodes.

Hubie Halloween and 25 Horror Movies Classics

"See. CR. Thank you for being here with me today I appreciate you man, of course, man this is this is our favorite time of year in a Lotta ways. Yeah. I, think last year we had a conversation like this to write maybe around the release of mid Samara about what what's going on with horror movies. What are horror movies? Now the world has gotten certainly more horrifying in the last twelve months. We had a conversation like this, but before we get into you. Know Lists and the Adam Sandler movie. I kinda wanted to take your temperature on where you think this genre is at right now. Well, I don't know that we can say for sure because I'm not sure what her movies were not getting, right? I don't know what movies maybe delayed release that didn't get the festival bump that they needed from south by or or any of the summer festivals that might have happened So it's hard to say but I I would say that. I find my appetite for her pretty much the same as it was any other year. I don't necessarily find as festive outside I. Don't know the for one thing in Los Angeles. It's ninety degree. So doesn't really feel like Halloween but for another I, just you know everybody's inside. So I don't think the decorations of really started to go up yet I. Don't know that I don't really spend a lot of time in the Candy Aisle at my age you know what I mean what do you think? Well, I know you're costume guy. No you'd like to dress up just on any. Oh Wednesday. So this must be strange for you to not be able to dress up as a giant clown and run the streets. Pharaoh that's me. Yeah I I agree I think it's a little bit strange to not feel the Halloween and the Halloween season but I don't necessarily associate horror just with Halloween. It's definitely a twelve month a year John Reform me and it's this month a year. History to Halloween is when we are allowed to watch nothing but her for like a month and not seemed like we should be committed. Yes. I appreciate my wife creating a dispensation for me to be able to watch some of the most vile things imaginable on film. I several consecutive days on quite a run right now catching up on stuff seeing stuff for the first time. A lot of it is very gross or very disturbing and you're right. There's like we psychologically grant ourselves the right to do this at this period, which is pretty pretty weird. Come on honey. It's early. October. Let's watch. Torn to pieces. Yeah anyhow. What about from the from the year so far in terms of the movies that have been released have there been any that you actually liked from the Shawna Yeah I've seen a couple of things on demand that I thought were pretty cool. Some of them were like late nineteen things that finally got released this year I think that you and I. were. Really looking forward to seeing a bunch of stuff in Texas at. South by which was the OH maybe we'll go to Austin rate like right as quarantine was starting to become really apparent as the magnitude of the situation was dawning on us. So I I really don't know if you've seen anything in twenty twenty that you think is like really stellar. You know. I wanted to ask from hosts. Really Right. Y-. Right. So I think that that's I think that's where we should take this conversation which is a couple years ago. I. Did this Horror Oscars Gimmick on the site where I picked my favorite. What I thought was the best horror movie of every year since Nineteen, seventy, nine and I like the idea of continuing to hand out that award every year and so looking at kind of what would be the five contenders from each year but as you say Most of the movies of that are sort of noisy studio movies have been pushed back candyman for example, Nia Costa's remake reimagining of that classic is not coming out now until next year that's a bummer i. a lot of people were looking forward to it. I was looking forward to it. We got a few things. You know we got we got the invisible man we got relic There have been a couple of movies on shudder shudder originals, one of which I'll talk about later in the show. But like blood quantum, which I talked about on the show Z, the Beach House that I think are all worth recommending but I wouldn't say are on the order of. Hereditary or or something like that. You know that we haven't had a movie like that. That feels like it's a little bit of a moment. A little bit of a movement announces a new filmmaker in a loud and noisy way I. Don't know you know. Host is really interesting. I think the last time the show is just you and I talked about we talked about host and it kind of feels like it has has the belt for horror movies in twenty twenty if only by circumstance. Yeah I think you mentioned all those other like invisible man etc I would the lodge in there I would throw the rental and they're like. They were really there is some pretty solid doubles to left, but the host was the one where I was just like a watch it again I'm going to recommend it's all my friends I'm going to try and get people who don't ordinarily watch horror movies to check it out, and especially if we're talking about twenty twenty horror movies, it is a movie that only have been made this year. Do you think that that's a movie that's going to stand the test of time or only resonating with people because we're all looking at screens all day. No I think it will I think it's going to be a good time capsule movie for sure. But I think that there are some things that it does and you talked about this with Alex Ross Perry, which was an amazing conversation. If people haven't checked it out and I, think his some of the stuff he said towards the end of your conversation will influence what we're about to talk about today. But I think that you guys talked a little bit about the technology and the the storytelling that it employs and how it seems to be like a step for like an evolution in what could we do with? The collective psychology of what's going on with people and that's what's awesome about her movies is that I feel like unlike any other genre really taps into how people are feeling at any given time about certain things it has at least that capacity.

As you said right, then he gets in this really tragic accident and people started writing roles for him. Most of the roles he's done since then even brothers and his role on ad. People were like. Here's this great actor. He's now in a wheelchair. Let's writer role that suits his personality, and like incorporates the fact that he's paraplegic is. Often if someone has an accident like that, Hollywood's just like I. Don't know what to do with Christopher Reeve being in the remake rear window. Right, but but would there'll Mitchell. It's been done effectively. He's had a nice career. So. You want to talk about bill. PULLMAN is being a cop. I did -tective who wants to not really be doing his job. Guess the stakes here are different with a lot of his scenes. He's a different, incidentally right and I think this movie, nor has a handle on which is, here's a cop who doesn't want to be a cop at all. He finds the job to be a real bummer. He faked a back injury, and his superior caught him chopping wood in his backyard so now he's forcing him to go back onto patrol, but. But. He doesn't want to do that, so he's looking to end cases as quickly as possible, and he is the guy who keeps on being at the right place at the right time to collect the information to bust, the case wide open, and he refuses to acknowledge it because he doesn't want to have to do the extra work. He refuses to do the extra research to check the file, and it's Daryl Mitchell is his partner who is trying to actually do things correctly, and everything flies over Bill Holman's head, I. Think pullman plays this is. So funny it much like Kujo. He is dialed pretty in to do it. And like just the scene this final scene where like he? He shows up in the hospital room where Travolta's waking up after an accident, so we'll talk about this. So we'll all get there when I get there, but the the pullman stuff I just think all of that totally. You know minute. Thirty. When Michael Moore is killed roughly forty minutes until like minute eighty is just like Ed, O'Neill, rappaport and Tim Roth all trying to like get the money, and it's like boring, and it makes no sense and every time there was like bulte joke. It's not funny. Travolta gets into a position where he now owes far more money than he originally do a scene where he's like. Half and then he wants half. He wants twenty thousand. He wants ten percent like I'm now in further debt, so his strategy is I need to just get level again. I'm going to sell the tickets. Someone else to unburden myself all of this trauma. and. He sells it to add O.`Neil for like hundred thousand dollars or something. He's selling them a six million dollar ticket for one hundred thousand dollars, and also trying to unload all of his snowmobiles, so he has enough cash to just get out move starting his his his assistant. Jerry who has like a cousin in Colorado who wants to buy all the snowmobiles, who always speaks in these very meaningful kind of like poetic statements that might end up seeing from a play that he wrote about evil knievel when he was in middle school. I can just chip rish everything you're saying. Chip Reid you. Like what you like the plot of Lucky, not a fan. It's a gentlemen's ten I did like Jerry's bedroom where he has bobbleheads, a kiss, poster and jar. We're talking about Larry. Jerry is. Larry is Michael. lambing his on his desk, say a sentence. Trying to do. Oh my God. You think of his jars of trolls. I don't remember it.

"Funniest joke or shot in the movie Chris Nolan? Ephron great truck flips. Can we call out in structures? Fifty percent of mixed nuts as characters moving around a dead body. Body Rich. They don't throw it off a bridge. They throw it up into the air. They put it in Christmas tree. They throw it down stairs, also worth mentioning what a lot wrote down. This movie is vaguely Christmasy and that it starts in what they say is the lead up to the Christmas season she loves. Much like myself a Jew who loves Christmas so much. Many of her movies involve Christmas. Then like you lose that and I didn't have any idea. Has Christmas happened? There hasn't really been link. In the commentary she's now. Of course. It's January by now and I feel like the Lotto drawing was the week after Christmas and I was like yeah. Sure may could not attract that outside of the one time Lisa. kudrow wears a Santa Hat. But you know what else happens around this point in the movie that we do need to talk about minute thirty. As a non actor, a cross vocational performer here we go into the film. As Matic, a little bit dim with a crush on his cousin. And and a real aficionado of masturbation, and that is hundred million dollar grossing Documentary Filmmaker Academy Award Pom. Pom Door winner Michael Moore Ultra. This is all. Aged only three performance. His only performance correct only accident playing himself the only time. Scripted? The year himself he does. That's what it says on IMDB. So you guys I believe he plays himself in that he played. Okay all right. Technically he plays talking head on TV panel I guess he's never identified I. Do want to say watching this all we could think was. They must have just been friends like what on Earth could explanation for this be? has commentary she says. Casting director had this great idea where she just now. What about Michael Moore? And I knew him from New, York I loved his films and he moderates lots of QNA's and panels and new. York and I thought he was so funny. He came in and read for four characters. He was great as all of them, and then we put him in this role. That is so bizarre especially, because this film is like well cast, you have a lot of good actors in it. Then bill poem. Bamford who were like at the beginning of their career suddenly go. Of course. Let's pull someone who has no acting aspirations whatsoever, and seemingly this one performance, and the response to it scared him off of ever. Even trying ever also like this is not that far removed. I mean, it's a couple of years, but like everyone forgets Michael. Moore made a fiction movie as his follow up to Roger and me. Canadian Bacon. Like, he did not lock in on being Michael Moore I mean until people thought he might be a studio comedy until like yeah also was wonder like Columbine. Obviously really refocused his energies as a documentary filmmaker, and that was ninety nine. Kind of wonder. No, that's two thousand. Two Columbine is Ray after the Matrix came out. The event talk event your event of bowling for Columbine. But I'm saying the event Columbine clearly refocused perspective on documentaries and think about American sure I'm wondering if that was mind at this time when he was shooting lucky, forget that break.

I'm Griffin I'm David Her name and our guest today return to the show for the fifth or sixth time I might Craig kilborn moving to CBS, because I'm taking the five with me. This is your. This is the time you join the five timers club on the main feet I think so. That's why I'm wearing. My Ben Hat. Wow! He's wearing a congratulations hat. He has recently been anointed the official ambassador. Brand Ambassador Ambassador gradulate an ambassador share of the congratulations fashion line. Fill up. Your fifth episode you're on Insomnia Hollow. Man Taken Woodstock yet took woodstock we keep. We kept now this. Yes, yes, and so the honor, this event of course I reward Alex with the congratulations hat. You came congratulations hat because this is a major event for Alex. Ross Perry Director of listening I'm fill up. Her smell many more. Found another perfect film for me to come to. I was going to say you'd like to pick the film. That kind of exists the least often their lowest grossing film, but a film that flopped in a way where people don't even talk about it and similar to Nolan with the one movie that he does not have a writing credit on this is the same thing, and therefore guess feels perfect, and I basically demanded. That that with this had to be. This had to happen. Also a huge huge Ephron. Household over here. We love her. Your Big Ephron fan similar similar to taking what stock was like the one I hadn't seen. Right now. We had booked someone else for this episode John Travolta. Unfortunately John, Travolta. We Johnny travs, the most bovine of all leading men. To be the guest on this episode and then. We booked a non Travolta person who we've been trying to get John Travolta John Travolta. Those are the two coreys. We booked a non Travolta for this episode. We've been trying to get on the show for a long time and he had not seen this movie I was like. Hey, this is up for grabs. Do you WanNa? Cover this? And he was like sure, and then you told David. I would like to do lucky. Numbers and David said to you. We have someone for a lucky numbers. It's off the table. I don't think there's anything we can talk shot, and then I believe I also said, but you can have your pick of as. So you know. It wasn't like I was like now. Check back again later, see you. Then Alex texted me and was like it's too bad. I would've loved to done lucky numbers but David told me there's nothing that can be done. It's immovable and I was like this is obstruction. This is large government obstruction I can untangle this I reached out to the other guests. We get booked. Would you rather do I pick of any MEKA's movie or lucky numbers? And he said Yeah I'll take a fucking. Over lucky numbers I made both people happier. I'm the only. Offer say lucky numbers obviously. Yes right? You wanted it. and. I got much like Nora wanted to be onset hearing. Fried Clams Fuck Me Know Fried Clams now. Can I say to controversial opinions right off the Bat? Okay! One I think Lisa kudrow nails that delivery of what is a very good line script. She's great in good. Yeah, she's. She's actually just good in this movie. Okay now here's my second controversial take. I liked this movie and I was not expecting that I was not prepared to have any generous takes on this. I like to aim to be either the bottom or second to bottom. When you do your rankings, so that's disappointing. I mean this is second about. This is third bottom for me at. At least all right well, that's okay. That's still on the loser, not not to call out my list in advance, but they're right there, too. I like less than this unquestionable while you're subject did did you take my suggestion for a bonus episode? Was Your suggestion hanging up? It was. Yes, then we did take your suggestion that was said to David in a blind rage when he was telling me that I had to take a hike. We had already pencilled hanging up into the schedule. He stole your idea enrage. Glory, have you have you recorded it yet? We have we have interesting that this matter the same year both dro. Dro Koutros. It's like it's like welcome to the club Cujo. You're going to be Rahm. Come leading lady. You're going to be a Nora Ephron is great like your movie. Stardom awaits if you. And fricken MARCI X. or Darcy. X and. Go Away Lisa it well. One of the things on my syllabus that I made is not talking about friends movies. Physical Great Okay because this is the context I want to get into I feel like this is a really good episode to talk about the friends movie calls because I think you might never do one again. Is that possible? When I was looking at the careers of the friends I was wondering really will friends cast member ever be discussed outside of like a lost in space oddball to say bright. I feel like that's the only one we've done. If we don't discuss. Jesus David Schwimmer in a movie I'M GONNA Lose My. Movies dating. Seems to look at his filmography, major or marginal autour that he worked with that, you would ever discuss him unless you. Doug! Jalen Syreeta into it. He worked with the attorney David Schwimmer director run fat boy run some. Check yourself of beekeeping on the weirdos bracket, right? Well, okay, look if we ever do Soderbergh David. Schwimmer was in the LAUNDROMAT. O, he did fold that movie. You feel like you have repeatedly said. SODERBERGH is unmanageable by any measure of how to do it well. Who fucking knows? We have yet to solve it. Okay, our do Matt. Reeves, which we might there. We're going to need to kick it off with Paul Pallbearer. We're GONNA need to bear that Paul now. That's an interesting take. Because we could I could see two movies from now doing Matt Reeves it. Could hundred percent, and if we ever do Mike, Nichols, I didn't realize this, but apparently David Schwimmer plays cop in Wolf, so. Certainly he would be the main thing to talk about while talking about one of the most insane things that has ever happened. I'm realizing one other Schwimmer. If we ever did Ivan Reitman. Clemson seven nights one hundred percent. Yes, so you're getting a lot of shrimp. He poverty. Swimmer. Is a third lead in terms of like what I define as the friends movie. That's like one of the six cast members of the hit TV show. Friends I guess they'll like six days seven. Or an Hash and then whatever schwimmer is what I'm talking like I agree movies that we're like you're famous. Here's your movie. You're forgetting. There's there's very obvious one. Which one! I think you know he is painting. Read is a somewhat breakout candidate and the break-up is. Jennifer Aniston vehicle that that counts because Jennifer Aniston's the one who actually got vehicles are GONNA say. Well we have to unpack this, but it is fascinating for being the one friend who actually had a legitimate movie career. That kind of worked. She has worked with very few people. We wouldn't ever cover on the show. Rob Reiner and cover the graduates Lovie, unless we do see you don't even remember the title..

Top 10 Performers of the 2010s

"Actually I am kind of I write poetry Snow Book Secret Notebook or your poet. Yeah that's great but you like to hear what sure sure it doesn't really Ryan though. Okay kind of like him better when they don't me to all right so we've heard your number ten. We've heard my number six Adam driver. Who's your number nine performer? The decade? Okay boy this hurts me because it wasn't too long ago I was asking if this was the best actress of the twenty tens and I still think she's in the conversation but Elizabeth Moss. When I sat down to do this list fell down to number nine okay and I think for me. It's it's partly again. I'm backing into the list here. It's partly because her strongest work was on television. I don't know if it's fair. We're a film show so I'M GONNA hold that. It's not fair okay. It probably isn't yet to discount the handmaiden and madman but you're right if you include those. Then how is she? Not One of the performance of the Dick and Jane campion's crime series top of the lake. Yeah so so you know those three works alone in her work in them specifically I mean madman. I made the argument. She's as crucial to that series. Almost as crucial. Let's say Don Draper. She was the lead in in Top of the lake in the lead the handmaid's tale but I look back at the big screen to and The one I love I think great in. I know you love the film more than Me Adam but the collaboration with Alex. Ross Perry's Ben. My favorite thing about those including are probably hurt toured force performance of the last. Ten years is in her smile. I think just from last year and then yeah squeezing in that great supporting part in US last year as well getting to show her comic chops I had to keep her on this list but when I started comparing her to the filmography we're going to get to higher up. Yeah I couldn't put up there at the very top. Yes same process with me. Though she slipped a little further I did begin by ranking top ten actresses top ten actors then figured out how to merge them and go made the cut. I Have Elizabeth Moss in my six through ten actresses but did not make my top ten overall. My number ten is an actress. And this is one where you could accuse me Josh of maybe looking ahead a little too much but I think the foundation of great work in this decade is also there. She is the only other one that woman I'm about to mention. She's the only other one with driver who feels to me like locks. We could already pencil them in for when we're doing this list in ten years okay. We're GONNA look back on the twenty twenties and go. Of course. This was the decade of Adam driver and of Sir Sha Ronin the three great performances come in Brooklyn in Lady Bird and of course last year in Greta. Gerwig 's little women and there's two great films there for me all time great films frankly in Lady Bird and little women. I'm less high on Brooklyn though I like Brooklyn quite a bit and I really do think. It's a wonderful performance from her. She also appears of course in Wes. Anderson's Grand Budapest hotel and I really liked her in Joe. Wright's Hannah for me. Ronin is the insistent innocent. There is some naievety about her. As you look at those performances Brooklyn ladybird little women but really just a lack of experience. There's the census. She still has a lot to learn about herself and about the world and relationships. She's going to make mistakes. She's GonNa make a fool of herself but that's because she's always going to put herself on the line there is a determination and there's a voracious nece to Ronin characters that I find really appealing. I was looking back at my notes from our review of Lady Bird and I mentioned the way she just kind of burns with this intensity and this focus. It's almost like she's from another planet in the way she talks and the way she studying the people she's engaging with there is this provocation that is inherent to the lady bird character where she's just so eager to expand her knowledge her base of knowledge. It seems like that's what she's after in every encounter in life and maybe more than anything. Josh the reason why I wanted to make sure I fit. Ronin on this list is I just want to continue to put out into the universe. This idea that I did see floating around social media after a recent Hollywood reporter with Ronin and Greta Gerwig where they talk about future collaborations with each other. And there's a great question by the interviewer posed to Gerwig about working with Ronan and differences in working with her now versus lady bird and I thought Gerg's answer was really instructive. She says it's the benefit of working with someone you've worked with before. I felt like in some ways I had conceived lady bird before I knew she was playing it and I'd written drafts of little women before I knew she was playing it but I don't know any other way to say it. Except she was an author of Lady Bird but even more so she was an author of little women. I felt like she knew exactly what we were making the whole time as a filmmaker as much as an actor she really became a second director for me. It was like an extension of every thought. I had she'd walk out in another step. I think honestly the closest I've had to it is writing. With Noah Noah Baumbach who is her partner. But that's fitting of. Gerwig I think in her personality that she so generous in giving Ronin all that credit as an artistic collaborator but I think it speaks to the intelligence and again that voracious nece that comes through in her character's it's probably embedded within ronin herself. That made her such a good collaborator with Gerwig. And the key line from this is Gerwig saying I'm interested to see what movie we make when searches in her fifties. And I'm in my sixties. WoN'T THAT BE INTERESTING? And I'm thinking that's great but I want to see the movie that you make together when searches in her thirties when searches in her forties. I can't wait until the fifties I would be perfectly content of those to just continue to make movies together until the end of time. So Sir Sharon did just sneak onto my list ten. Hey I like your band with Jona rubies. Len Fans knew awesome.

Rockstar Movies - The Genre of the Moment

"First we're going to talk about other rockstar films joined today by my ringer colleague. And really one of the best writers about Rockstars in the world Lindsay's all Lindsey. Hey, how's it going? I'm doing really well. Thank you for joining me. You know Lindsey right before we started taping the show we were talking about what makes a kind of rockstar movie successful. And you know, there are two different kinds of movies. Like this her smell falls into the completely fictionalized. But inspire. By category, where the characters in it exists in a realm that seems familiar, but isn't real Becky something seems like Courtney love, but she is not Courtney love. And then of course, there's the bohemian rhapsody ask bio pic version that, you know, attempts to tell the truth and often is more false than the movie that is completely fictionalized for you, which makes us successful rockstar movie in which of those do you prefer. I tend to prefer the ones that are creating this whole other world that doesn't exactly exist in in the actual music universe answer, the non bio-pic ones, which are these movies that have come out in the past year that all kind of fall into that category. Pretty much all are those sorts of movies. But those tend to be my favorites. Yeah. Why do you think? So right now, we're in this moment, and you writing a piece about this on the site this week where teen spirit is being released this week. It's maximum galas story of popstar pile fanning. A star is born last October. The one. Her smell. No, I don't wanna quit backs. Lux Brady Corbett portrait of a pop star in the aftermath of nine eleven starring Natalie Portman. The aforementioned bohemian rhapsody wire all of these movies happening right now. Do you think I really don't know? I mean, one really interesting parallel that I put it out to you earlier is that each of those movies, I guess with the exception of her smell sort of are directed by male actors like people that we primarily identifies actors before directors. So that that is just interesting to me in general of of people like they seem to be wanting to say something about performance and stardom, but through the proxy of generally younger or more famous woman, and that's just a very strange parallel that I'm not sure what's going on there. But I think there's a sense right now with social media that sort of anyone can become a pop star. I mean, we. To crossover into the music field week. I will not ex- right now who this viral star who just has the number one song in America overnight sensation because he was able to use social media into becoming famous. So I think there's this sense right now that pop stardom is easier to achieve and and that if you have a certain idea or machinery behind you that you can just not your fingers and become a pop star. I do not think it's that easy. And that's the issue. I have with some of these movies and the way that they conceive of twenty-first-century pop cultural stardom, but I do think there's that sense that if anyone can become a pop star on the internet, then so can Natalie Portman are we can imagine her in that role or L fanning or something like that? There's this almost anyone can do it notion in the air right now that I think is contributing something to this. You know, we're gonna talk about some of our favorite. Versions of these kinds of movies. I think we should say that for the most part the bio pic more so than the original story tends to be more successful and the massive success of bohemian rhapsody, which is I would say an abnormality. But also indicative of kind of where music movies may be going. I think sets aside the fact that like there's something kind of dull and bland and Oscar is about the bio pic in the original story. I feel like creates a whole new world of creation for us. You know, what are some of your favorites from that John rea-? I mean, I have a very long. A couple. Yeah. The first one will I kinda was thinking in terms of these movies that have come out recently almost each of them. I sort of had in mind, oh, I like X movie from the past better, and in thinking of vox lox, I was comparing it a lot to Todd Haynes velvet goldmine.
