"Since we've had the joker and it's GonNa Singular origin story I just wondered if you've had any thoughts the plate any marvel characters getting treatment so I'd like to see the demand the ball story don thoughts demanded a ball Tony is Oklahoma so just like one off stories just done dusted no worries about continuation interest so like a joker Ash Carter still for example yeah finding out we're still broken up that's room flexing genre in someone will serious comedic I don't WanNa see something got completely gone back show mental you know really dark and not definitely wouldn't want to see something unconnected because I think the model the MTA moves what really well because they understand the tone and they understand the characters so well I would worry I feel like what is giving them that I'm quite happy for them to do stuff like that in what if something like Marvel zombies for example I personally hoovering wouldn't be infected it doesn't make any sense but but like stuff like that you could do in store in and just ignore the rest of the time sixteen though is the one that I'd probably go for I just thought that was really charming and weird and funny and you could do that just on its own and it would never connect anything yes and that would be fun so let's see sixteen or to those of you who don't know it basically all the marvel characters rise in Lisbon Times which is weird how cool for costumes oh they'd have they'd be listen I'm telling you to be amazing so yeah that doesn't oh we're talking about adaptations the hulk future imperfect which is a great I think we're just two issue run but it was a fairly lengthy issues by David who is the Hulk writer in which the hulk has become a tyrant in the future called the maestro it's really really great really interesting that'd be good one and deserves a shot I don't know he forget it because of the contractual thing but he deserves a solo movie Ruffalo shoe play him an Colombo at the same time going John from letterkenny it I'm not so bad I love listening to the podcast illustrating very contested so new terminator film coming up very soon the last two the last two Terminator Films Tennessee of blowing their load in the trailers with regards supply twelve thirteen years so what are your what examples of movies shall we say spoiling themselves and the trailer would would you like to highlight or to flip on its head what films are you so impressed that the goodness it was amazing I remember being really impressed by the trailer for seven this is really going back I don't know VHS on the cover of empire the trailer for seven made it look like an average buddy cop comedy it does like I like it looked like a good film I wanted to but it looked like any other buddy comedy or not comedy drama and I was just like oh I was not prepared for what I saw when I saw that movie so that that's the one that springs to mind in terms of holding back but I mean there was there was it's the final shot and okay some shots make the trailer and don't make the film so maybe you're not sitting there waiting for it but maybe you are and you have to wait the entire film for the final show took care Shaw colored speeding towards where layer is on the ship and I don't feel like you've been conned but at the same good stuff it's all smoke and mirrors rather than Bayton switch which is why I'm really intrigued by this race stuff in the sky will trailer because that was like a big read right into my face thank you so much for listening next time goodbye.

"Cavs Defenders Endgame Sally I think our producers tried to Brevet and say no no we're keeping we're keeping we were I actually every review and everything about it would have to I say it's not about the it's not based on the book by Sally Rooney so that's that's not necessarily what you want no it's not that normal people and then they go right so it was never encounter handles like a big board full of ideas imports so important we've changed it we think it's actually a much better title we love the new title because it is a love story and that was what we really felt about it when we came to it that we thought it was really unusual love story and that's great if that's the first thing that an audience is going to understand the and ordinary love is a love story about the small moments on the big challenges that go into long-term love along the with breast cancer so it's a story about the journey dot this couple go on together a journey that they go together as much as possible but of course it's a very different journey if you're the one who is suffering from this illness on the one who is the partner of that person who's doing so so it is about the journey that concert journey but ultimately it's really about the seasons under cycles of a long term relationship and it really celebrates a I think a connection between two people that keeps them both afloat was at the off your written by all McCafferty yeah I mean I think one of the things I mean coming off the back of good vibes which was a completely different thing really I mean abs is kind of like trying to harness chaos and in many ways it was in on the shoot and just so it suited the subject matter I think adb much more intimate was somebody would want to to work with very for years we've had a couple of slightly false starts with that and Dan this came along at home to partner and our production company is a lifelong friend of Owens Okay and the story is based on fact a woman wife went through this journey he's going on and dramatized events so there are certain things that happened in our film it did not into when Peggy Burke but certainly they experienced this journey and as you mentioned a tremendous chasms principally of course by by Jason and Lesley Manville and I think as Liam's first Northern Irish movie for donkey's years as they say over here you have five minutes of Heaven I think maybe would be the last one almost persuade them to put on the gun so hard he did ask occasionally onset if it was time for him to kill someone with a rolled up newspaper he had a gun done a sock from this just as there so was he wasn't easy Silverman Liam is a great theater actor a serious actor so you know we always knew that we always there's other material that he will enjoy apart from action films we had been talking to him about another project in the last couple of years one which in the way of many many films just sort of didn't quite get to this point being made so but we having to talk to him got to normal little bit we just had a sense the sort of interesting above the sort of stories that he might be interested in telling when this one came along and we just read the first draft and we heard his voice in it really was written for you're a man of that age from here and I think that's one of the things that he really liked about it the chance to play a character who is quite similar to himself yeah into this yeah probably quite rare to send the first draft to an actor but yeah he's he he connected with it and I think he adhere his own voice in it so I mean actually then when when Liam Niessen becomes touched your project things move quite quickly and there was a when new to shoot and everybody moves really fast and he was instrumental in bringing Lesley Manville is amazing actress onboard. Well I mean to be honest we unwanted Lesley Manville you know because we have been huge fans of hers since you know the her earliest films with you know when she mike Leigh's movies I know her well for three hundred threat many of the other things we just we've just been huge fans and we just had a feeling that not just something about both lemon lasley they both have this quality of naturalism you can you believe them when they're on screen you're convinced by the emotion the reality of everything that they're doing death but they can also bring a real lightness and humor as well and so we just had a feeling that they might be a great dynamic together Liam Sir team was really keen to have leslie too so we just hope there would be a great chemistry we were excited about bringing those two great actors together on screen we thought we you know we would love to see them if we if we saw them headlining movie we would think that exciting combination of actors so they never worked before the never met actually really yeah yeah everybody you know had a whole connection of everybody that they knew and they never met so that's interesting that Leeann tailored towards the for this in terms of suggestion or having never met her so pills it was meant to be in it I think she'd obviously worked with Daniel Day. armed with him yeah and I think you know everyone you know let's these between incredible work for years and then I suppose recently with fund thread and she's Liam Liam like us had been a fan of last for a while and this part seemed really right for her so so we were delighted it was a real privilege to to bring the two together onscreen for the first time so you you hit it out there that you know a couple of projects post good vibrations got close to the starting line and then did you make it over the starting line yes that's the life of a direct sadly especially I guess working in the British film industry working at a certain legit level as as well I mean how tough is it quite frankly in this market to get a movie like list may yet it's I mean it's really tough I mean I mean probably we're had to your three projects and those things can be cast you know you can get it to a point where everybody likes the script and then you need to get past that and cast that will finance it and all becomes a kind of a crazy cycle and really have to get permits to align I mean so much of it is is seems to be movie gods the three films that were Philly cost and just waiting for green night and then whatever reason in great costs as well you know up solid cast that you would have assumed would complete finance and then things just drift apart and how do you deal with a do to be quite stoic about why philosophical yeah I mean when we were doing vibes we had we thought we had lots of projects on the go but we actually didn't and so good vibes really felt like all our eggs in one basket and we're married couple fell acquitted maybe bet the farm on that so that was a challenge and good vibes had many times where it really doesn't happen in finance collapsed we lost we were at the brink of doing it and then financiers pulled out and their money elsewhere and collapsed and cut these things start again and that sort of happens it's not like a we'll start the second a couple of weeks you literally talk that would be another year minimum could be two years you know so it's a tough journey whereas whereas I think we do have many more projects we understand that you need to have more projects 'cause sadly some invariably will fall away and Yeah you just need to have this stuff that's right was good vibrations at one point you know it was coming up to Christmas and I think something it just and we talked on the phone over Christmas with producers and said well you know maybe we can you know get together with some friends and you know just shoot a few scenes on the we ends you know if we can you know a couple of cameras they can show up and this naturally where we were on depressing just yeah yeah and then again the movie goes curve kicked into gear something happened we go newfound we BBC films came aboard and then quite quickly we got it shot but there was a year or two where we okay we're going to be shooting it in months time gonNa be and then you put everything on hold and then in two months time there's another delay so yes we you you just have to have a lot of things going on it's Kinda sad in a way it's sort of a five year gap I don't mind the modulation of kind of developing for a little bit and then shooting and then editing and post production and then back into devout them you've kind of an interesting journey but but if you know if development goes on and on it ceases to be interesting because incredibly stressful gap between projects on C. becomes increasingly Kubrick it's funny because when you meet people who don't do what we do they sort of think that for those five or six I have kind of been doing nothing just be Mitch about Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah we're writing scripts when we've we've we've got a few checks on the boil but you never quite know what's going to happen next what's going to get to that point next absolutely you're talking about how difficult it is get me films in the current climate and with the British film industry is one thing Ah You guys is that you're very focused as well you're based here you're focusing Northern Ireland Intel in northern are stories as well but is that going to change is something that lanes important for you anyway that wasn't particularly intentional I felt the other films that we were we have made three feature films here which has been incredible we've built up an amazing team of collaborators and the crews here are extraordinary as everyone has said I mean both Lemon Leslie when they came to here very early on in the shoot work both came up and said how mazing home as they were by the quality of the crews and everything was working but no we didn't you mean to keep me here necessarily we a couple of films that we were going to be shooting in between we're not set here one was Paris and other England we always joke that every film that's not set here we'll just end up being on the lagging with a smoke I'm somebody will always be Paris but it's fine we're working on it and whatnot but anyway but it's not that we don't want to obviously we love sitting here because we do have great friends and crew and collaborators and but I mean also you want to tell stories that are kind of think apart or from good vibrations which was very much centered around Northern Ireland the other two features we've made were it was an incident backdrop to a degree they were story universal stories that could have been set and where but it was nice in a way to use the background it's Taylor and it's specific but it's not those films not to do with the subjects that people might associate that's what I mean we do have we actually have another project another northerner project in development you know there's very specifically about here okay probably it's time awesome Meta also there are so many stories there are so many stories still to tell from this place and about this place so it's a very rich source for us and we're very proud to make films here we've also had great report from northern screen and organizations like that so we'll hope to we'll hope to do both maybe I'll say this as someone who left or their own twenty years ago but I think it is important that you guys are making films set here and are shooting films here as well I think that's an incredibly important and quite frankly what does Paris have the Bambridge doesn't exactly passion Clarisa big needle thing but bambridge has the cut yes which is I don't know if you guys ever been to Bambridge but it's a bridge over road in the middle of a town it's got a sculpture garden.

"Casually party and not really worry about it only focus on immediate gratification asian and fun and then i guess the scathing commentary is even after shit hit the fan they still are pathologically only looking to have fun and get laid and just kind of focus on the same celebrity culture stuff like that yeah i mean this is the logic of the algorithm that i was talking about earlier. We think of the algorithm purely in mathematical medical terms but i think we can think of it also in terms of like our narrative forms. It's the way that we can kind of pacify are <hes> anxiety or for our encounter with uncertainty or the real we might say or whatever it is. That's actually confronting us that is beyond what we're able to manage and so we rely on you know linear algebra. We rely on pesos. We were land storytelling the rely on whatever it is that we can so that we can plug in the formula so that we can try to like have a solution to the problem rather than actually really reconciling ourselves with contradiction which would be. I think a a different approach which is more like the psychoanalytic approach or the therapeutic repute approach or in philosophical terms like the galleon approach. It's not trying to overcome or reconcile contradiction but it's reconciling with contradiction introduction as being this thing and that that looks very different whereas the algorithm whether it's in finance this is what finance capital does this is what pricing models do on the stock market or whether it's a typical western storytelling where you've got like the hero's journey that ultimately has to lead need to like this resolution where the world has changed or at least his or her view of the world is changed <hes> and there's this point of self revelation and all this other stuff. They're kind of all structured in a very similar way. It is like this linear unfolding <hes> process of management had we manage the chaos whereas like an ancient an ancient way of i've been reading metamorphoses recently and i'm going to be reading like homer's iliad and odyssey soon as well and when you just get into the mindset of the ancient understanding of storytelling there's this sense in which like they've resigned themselves to the fates right like yeah they prayed to the gods but even the gods are subject to the fates and and <hes> in hinduism you have the uber's which is like this circular cycle <hes> so there's like a a different conception of time. It's not like you're you're ultimately going towards towards the alleviation of suffering you're kind of just in the midst of it and you deal with it in a way that is rather quite different than the western mind which is very much about progressing. That's why it kind of the modern narratives are all about progress right and scientific progress and technological progress because they will get us to the promised land and a real religious narrative in this and i think that you get that in a film like zombie land. There's this kind of pseudo religious narrative but what i think is interesting about this film. His rather than say that like the promised land is in pacific playland or the promised land is in some sort of <hes> community where there's a fort where there's weapons and there's military grade trade people and technology. It's no it's that we got each other and were stuck in the midst of zombie land and that is why to make a segue. I don't have much hope. Zombie won't be land to because i feel like zombie to is gonna lose so much of that intimacy in the midst of chaos and contradiction faith but i know i don't man and because i saw the trailer and it's got like all these other fucking characters and all this stuff and i'm like what made zombie charming for me is that intimacy and i think we're gonna lose that i have take on the the <hes> the indian shop though his name is columbus. Let's not forget oh yeah his his. You know weaken shop on that indian shop so i think that's a not so subtle metaphor interesting. Yeah yeah there you go. I don't know i mean i mean. Do you care about zombie land to jared. I mean i know ryan is not bad but i'm going to see it probably more because it's probably going to be a good time more than i'm hoping for. Any kind of scathing commentary about the state of the world are adam worked on it. Oh cool. Adam got a shot in the fucking movie again. This is the second time remember he was no. No no i think this is the first time <hes> literally filled it on his phone in like he just had his phone off to the side and he filmed the shot and then it looked so bad ass that they're like <hes>. Send us that shot. We're gonna probably put that in the movie and <hes> i'll let you know after all right anything else you wanna bring up for ego into our mailbag. Just that <unk> that metallica seen just can't stop thinking. I mean that's top ten intro wpro credit title sequence scenes to me that movie that that gets me so pumped up. I love the line where they're looking for twinkies at bill murray's house and then emma stone goes. Does i told you we should've gone to russell crowe's. It's a very special bill murray moment <hes> i mean the last thing i'd say just like in. I'm from formal from like a formalist perspective. I really like how the rules pop up in texts like. I think that's that's so clever you know and like when when it intensifies at one point i think it's the cardio bit where you know cardio kind of pops up but then when it's like really urgent it starts blinking. You know like little things like that. There's a sense in which each it's a really well made film. I have not been as excited about ruben fleischer's subsequent films. <hes> i yeah <hes> so i i think that this like he was hitting on all cylinders in this film in particular i. I just thought it was great but i love this movie last thing. I'll say everyone go see it. If you haven't seen it it makes me so happy all right so we're going to go to the mail bag <hes> so austin has not yet seen once upon a time in hollywood which is the most we got most of or actually all of our voicemails this week about once upon a time in hollywood. We're going to spare him. We're gonna do our voicemails about once upon a time in hollywood next week. When when is the movie coming out by the way austin. When are you gonna be able to see it next week. So it's out here on the fifteenth. <hes> okay wait so that's next fr- all right well. If you do see it in time and if we have you on next week we'll do it then but if you want to send us an email <hes> voicemail two one three five three four eight eight zero seven or two one elf hot oh seven and if you want to send us questions comments concerns whatever so actually most to the voice <hes> most of the mailbag emails that i hold were also about once upon longtime in hollywood because people were pretty <hes> pretty adamant about having their voice heard about that movie. A lot of different takes on it but i did get one email from jack. Jack says i know this is quite behind the time but i was listening to the show me the meaning backlog and felt compelled to comment regarding the interpretations of hans land actions inglorious bastards in my is. There's another level to hans interaction with shoshana in the restaurant that you didn't cover. I think the creme can be understood. Something french polluted by something german as made explicit blissett by his comment about the cigarette beyond this milk is not just pure. It's feminine the fact that hans puts a dirty german phallic symbol into a french symbol l. a. french femininity expresses his self perceived dominance over shoshana mirroring the metaphorical domination of the french nation by german invaders almost sexual terms. This theme is echoed by private sellers actions throughout the film and reflects the underlying understanding the nazis have about their presence in france. They often polite intelligent and competent competent yet because their motivation is repair yet. Their motivation is a rapacious need for dominance. We as film viewers see them immediately for the villains they are despite their pretension great email from jack holy shit man jack that was awesome. You're speaking my language man yeah. That was an awesome one. If you want to send us an email movies at wise crack dot c o that's dot c._o. Not dot com. We'll do all of the once upon a time in hollywood stuff next week because we we don't wanna spoil austin's viewing experience. I wanna thank <hes> ryan in austin for joining me great to have the original trio back in all right. <hes> you want to give us a sign off ryan <hes> working. We find you on the internet jared..

Are you a youtube celebrity. It goes wise crack. I'm here to see mid somare right now so i can listen to you is review and i'm actually in my headphones.

Get you gotta get the perks of being a celebrity. Everyone says i should pay for my junior mints and he said that's awesome. Has that ever happened you austin <hes>. No i mean i. I've had not where people have met. I've had people that i've met from the podcasts that are like wow. I just need to adjust because it's really weird to be to be in your presence sort of thing and then i've had <hes> like emails of friends that are like oh. My brothers actually big fan of yours.

I've had stuff like that but no one's yeah because i it's because you've only been here physically once right right right right so the the yeah anyway guys today we're talking about. His name is joe by the way out the joe. I want to interrupt you anymore. Oh it's all good today. We're talking about zombie land. The two thousand nine film directed by ruben fleischer starring jesse eisenberg emma stone and woody harrelson has always we're going to go around and get some first impressions oppressions about this movie was like the first time you watched it. What was it like revisiting it for this podcast. Let's start with ryan well. I this movie is just delightful. What a good time at the movies. I really it's a great combination. I i love the horror comedy genre sub-genre. There's like a precious few amount of movies in there but some of them are my favorite army darkness as you know jared was my favorite movies for like a decade stores a special place in my heart but yeah i i a tall zombie lane when i finally did see it in two thousand eight or so i have to say i was that was kind of at peak zombie fandom time and i kind of went in with pretty low expectations like all right another fucking zombie thing but the best part about it is that this is fucking hard are rated movie that they and they really use the hard to you know to make a really awesome movie like <hes> and it's really fun. It's written by to to break. Screenwriters rat race and paul were nick who did like deadpool and most importantly they did. The amazing underrated reality series series josh the joe schmo show. It's like the truman show of reality shows where trick a guy and they're the genius behind that anyway they're really talented writers and and and yeah i think it took them taking a well worn territory of zombie movies and putting some refreshing life into it and i and i avalons great. Everyone was ruben fleischer. The director is amazing. I love the slo mo style aesthetic things going on and then jesse eisenberg and there were stone what what good actors so. I really liked this movie a lot very cool so it's worth saying that the reason why we're doing this movie is because austin said he has not one but two to hot takes on this movie but anyway austin. What do you think about this movie. That's why we're targeted and also the sequel has just been announced right and the trailer or there was a trailer taylor for it yeah so that that too yeah and and and jared had never seen zombie land until now so it's right this. There's all kinds of reasons to tackle. Michael is film but i'll be honest. I don't know the first time that i saw because i went through and i do this. Sometimes i did this with the film sing street as well where i i can't distinguish the first time from the fifth time because they all kind of happened. Maybe over the same like one week period where i get kind of obsessed with something and i got obsessed best with this film when i first saw it and i don't know why maybe it was this time in my life where i just i was like craving a certain type of human connection and i was able to vicariously get that by living in zombie land with these people as they're driving around in their humvee kinda i i. I don't know what it was but it just has this special show place in my heart because <hes> it was something that was just such a constant maybe part of comfort and entertainment of of my life during two thousand nine or something like that <hes> i think maybe two thousand eight something like that. Yeah where i was when i was studying <hes> in undergrad so so i just fucking love this movie so much man it's <hes> it's like a breath of fresh air within the zombie comedy sub genre <hes> in the the bit in particular where they stop and go into the <hes> the native american store and they just fuck shit up for me is like the pinnacle of freedom you. You know it's like i want to do that so bad. Just have freedom to do whatever the fuck you want in a space and just destroy shit and there's just something i dunno. It's like a release of joy so i just loved this movie so much that <hes> that it's almost like no matter. If anybody ever tells me some criticisms about this film they just like water off a frog's back man it just runs right off me and doesn't affect me her ducks back and whatever whatever the phrase is <hes> but it just doesn't affect me because this movie so special to me so i love it cool. Yeah i saw this movie and for the first time last night and i was actually aware of the bill murray murray scene because you've done a video about bill murray a couple of years ago and we talked about that scene so i had seen just that scene generally that breaks breaks my rules. I really hate just seeing isolated scene from a movie because it will always lessen the impact when you watch the full movie later but you know because it was a work thing. I ended up watching it but i thought this was really funny. <hes> really laughed a couple of times <hes> watching the whole movie through the lens of like all right what is austin's take and i have a guess but we'll get to that later <hes> but it's a good movie i enjoyed it. I'll definitely see the sequel and it was a lot of fun. It's really have to say but anyway guys. We're going to go into a recap. The u._s. has become a zombie infested shit storm and girl obsessed shut in columbus has only managed to stay alive by adhering to a strict set of rules on the way to columbus to see if his parents are alive he hitches a ride with a fellow survivor on the way to tallahassee who is thereby known as tallahassee while trying to find the world's last box twinkies columbus and tallahassee meet scam artists sisters is wichita and little rock who tricked them and take their car and weapons the boys quickly find a hummer with an arsenal of weapons and pursue the girls but the girls get the jump on him again and after the boys learn that columbus and tallahassee are zombie infested all travel together to an amusement park called pacific playland where supposedly there are no ussama's columbus confesses to tallahassee that he has a thing for wichita and they decided to stop off at bill murray's house for arrest columbus accidentally kills bill and tallahassee el hassi reveals that he lost a son in the chaos columbus in wichita almost kiss but the next morning the girls take the hammer and right off to pacific playland without them after turning on all the amusements hordes of zombies descend on the attraction and wichita in little rock have to fight for their lives columbus and tallahassee infiltrate the park and save gave them wichita reveals that her real name is christa and columbus kisses. Her columbus accidentally shoots the world's last box of twinkies but which gives tallahassee s._c. One before they all drive off together and of movie all right guys gay indeed but before we move on wanting to shout out to our sponsors there's over at my wall street so i've always thought about investing never really had any idea about what stocks you invest in or how to start. Even though my dad was a stockbroker he just never imparted any wisdom on me so <hes> my wall street was easy to set up and her so many thousands of stocks choose from it's really overwhelming but the best thing about my wall street is that they offer a shortlist of stocks that they're experienced. Investors have spent countless hours researching so they act as kind of an investing companion anion.

"But yeah, like a lot of the best jokes are improvised. Seth is you can't like stopping. Seth from improvising. Is would be a very dumb thing. Imagines ask like how many days ahead for this forty three days three? Yeah. And, and on average, like how many takes you guys. Do you think for each set up? I mean, I'm did to cameras. I'm probably doing like four or five takes and I'm probably doing a lot of coverage, and I want to try to do less coverage in the future. It felt like there's many design shots there were designed shots. So what I tried to do was like Landon coverage so I could improvise stuff and have two cameras and be able to cut, but have like one cool shot. Percy quance. I remember film school, Anthony Gallic Kim, Anthony Minghella, maybe Anthony McGill him. I don't know. Sounds fancier came and told us that you should always try to put your coolish shot in the middle of scene. Because if you have it at the beginning, or the end you might cut it. I didn't do that. But I remember I remember that if I but we tried to have like one kind of cool thing person, right? You know, music is always been such a big part of all of your films, and I feel like you know, there's some, the most memorable moments in this movie are tied to music. We happened to both work with the same music supervisor. But I feel like a lot of this originates from you. You wanna talk about boys, demand and wreck said and just kind of the soundtrack of this phone. Yeah. I mean boys to men was just got lucky..

Now, one of the most influential women in the world after Fred has hired to be a speechwriter on Charlotte's presidential campaign. Sparks fly and their chemistry leads to a romance even though on the surface, the to have nothing in common. In addition to long shot mister Levine's credits include the feature films snatched, the night before warm bodies, fifty fifty the whack nece and all the boys, love Mandy lane the pilots for the series. I'm dying up here and rush and episodes of the series, the screen junkies show and how to make it in America following a recent screening of the film at the harmony gold theater in Los Angeles. Mr. Levin spoke with director Ruben Fleischer about filming longshot during their conversation. They discuss how Mr. Levin came to direct the film. His collaboration with Seth Rogan and Charlie's. The Ron to enrich, the material and his thoughts on integrating improvisation without being indulgent. I hope everybody enjoys movie as much as I did. I just. Yeah. Thank you. I mean I saw like a week ago and I've just been telling everyone all week like just it's the funniest movie I've seen in such a long time. And just another thing I love it about is just how beautifully shot it is. Like, I think you're filmmaking is on full display in this foam, which is rare in a comedy where you usually just have a bunch of cameras setup for improv. And but there's such a craft to this film that I just, you know, from, whether it's the drug trips sequence or various other things out. It just, you know, your town is on display and I think a fan, I'll just listen to this man, and just don't precedent Vokes for me like some of my favorite romantic comedies, whether it's Cameron Crowe or Harry met Sally, or say anything like it's just one of those like. Like classic romantic comedies of which I don't think we've had a really great one in a long time. So. We'll start into the just kind of like how this project came to be because, you know, with all due respect. This is a script that was around for Elizabeth on for a long time. And I was just curious how you came aboard it and in how you decided to make it relevant. You know, obviously, there's so much that relates to the current political climate, like how you got involved. Well, I mean, I, I read it in two thousand ally I was making more about. So I think it was like two thousand eleven two thousand twelve and I was not ready to make it. I don't I don't know. There was just I was already doing what I thought was a romantic comedy with zombies. And then I and then I, but I couldn't get out of my head, and they went it was Seth was playing Fred. And they didn't have Charlotte yet. And then I guess they went and got share lease and then was gosh, probably do this. You know, I think they'd probably offered it. Too many people in the in the interim. But I was making the night before with these guys and I was like, oh, Shirley's is doing. The movie like that sounds like a really great just wants the two of them together were in it, it sort of clicked for me is something that could be really transcendent. And so then I came on board to do it, and then, like can Trump got elected president, which ruined the whole thing for us. So we had. Yeah. It was it was it was made everything difficult for everyone's lives. But then we had to change it a lot because it was it was a wonderful script, but it was for like the president was like this kind of strong jhad guy who really just wanted like what was best for America. And I mean, it's just seemed kinda Quainton silly, when Trump was present. So we had to redo a lot of stuff. Oda Kirk was such a pleasant surprise like Sam in that role in as so so funny. So, so it sounds like Charlie's was involved before you, and she's a producer. So it was like her production company, her as a producer Seth production company..

"In gangster squad. I was probably an over exaggeration. I just love I love to then. Gangster squad, thirty minutes or less. I didn't like good a lot. So yeah, I would disagree on that. I really liked those two movies. But you're right. He's not like he hasn't really proven himself. But anyway, I agree with you. I love on land. So. Yeah. All right. So I was already right. It's divisive. Okay. Austin where you ending on the spectrum. I mean, that's perfect segue. Because I actually I love ambiance so much. I was kind of curious to see what Ruben Fleischer would do with venom. And I agree. One hundred percent with Mark Kermode review of this film. Who said that the first thirty minutes are boring. The second half the middle portion is just bad. But then the final third whether it's because it's been bludgeoning you over the head with mediocrity or whatever it gets kinda crazy, and Tom Hardy's kind of awesome. And so I ended I ended up forgetting about the first third of the movie, and then the middle portion that I didn't like so much, and I kind of came away with going dude, I will watch Tom hardy do anything. So like like the title of this podcast is show me the meaning. Right. And I sure I have to force some readings into things, and they're always themes and concepts that you can extract from any piece of art, right? But more than anything what is the meaning of this movie. It's the Tom Hardy's fucking. Mazing? That's the meaning of this movie. You know, I would litter. I would literally watch him in anything to any weird accent play any character. I don't care. We've just level. He's that do man. He's a he's the can't even streetcar named desire was what was the actor from streetcar. Oh brando. He's the he's the Brando of our time that big. You know, thick face white. Do that is kind of like we all kind of like I like this two brothers like them. You know, everybody likes. He's like hardy. There's this amazing does in the UK where he's like listening to little children call in talk with him and asking him questions and his responses are just fucking adorable like like, I just feel like you put them in any situation. He's just a dude. He's charismatic. He's charming. He's fun. But he's also he's also got like a a sort of like dude nece about him where I love it. Like people ask him about his sexuality. And he's like fuck you. But then at the same time, he also is very athletic. And so he kind of has that dude ish nece? He's it's like he's a man for the times, you know. We all agree Tong hardy rock than virtually everything. But I talking about his performance in venom. I same. I don't know, man. I I'm kind of more in the Greg camp. I well, first of all I should preface this by saying that I only saw the movie for the first time recently I had heard nothing but abysmal reaction. I was literally walking in thinking. All right. Like, this is probably gonna be painful and probably gonna be clawing my eyes out or trying to go to sleep through this movie. But I kinda liked watching Tom hardy. The thing is there are so many problems with this movie. And there are a lot of strange things about this movie, subplots that are forgotten structurally, this movie just is a an enigma. It's just like what were they thinking? It seems like it was certainly a script that went through five too many rewrites and ended up being really weird. But I don't know it kinda worked, and there are things in it that don't end up working as well as perhaps they could. But I kind of appreciate the sentiment. Appreciate the effort, and it kinda works enough for me. And this is probably a perfect example just being my expectations were tempered, and I walked away inter tained for two hours, and I was happy with that. So are you looking forward to venom to? Am I looking forward to

But the actors were good, and I I like how they made us kinda like venom at the end, you know, growing up as a comic book, dude. I never really liked venom. He was the bad guy. You know, I was supposed like Peter Parker and Spiderman, but I actually dug the movie I'm dude, I grew up.

I thought that that that that the Dewey stuff looked pretty cool sometimes and then every once in a while Tom hardy, which would say something that I don't think was like like supposed to be funny. But it kind of came off as funny like just like his performance was pretty bad that I was like that's. Kind of a weird. I dunno thing. He said or territory, but yeah, overall, I can't believe this movie made a zillion dollars. Just doesn't boggles the mind that you know, the. Sony makes these other, you know, these shitty comic book movies. And then this one just happens to hit. I think it's just because of everyone loves venom, you know. And so, yeah, I don't get it.

"You know what it is. I love a failed vision, and I do believe that the director of this movie Ruben Fleischer at least thought he had a vision like actually had the full vision, but then he has somebody like Tom hardy who he does fully commit to how bizarre this is, what you kind of have to respect on some level in addition to the fact that I can look at him for ever like literally forty minutes before we meet venom. And every other minute I was just thinking, he's. Some I did a little ADP searching. So Ruben Fleischer mostly known for doing zombie land which is a movie. I enjoyed. I know most people like be movies, didn't like that movie too silly, but I thought it was a fun movie. This screen writers are a motley Crue. One of them worked on alias eight-plus. Sure. Yeah, one worked on con air or getting somewhere and the other worked on fifty shades of grey. Well, that one is Kelly Marcel who is Tom Hardy's, kind of writing partner personnel out of stuff. They've been working together since Brunson when she helped him rewrite the script of that when they were working with Nicolas winding Refn. Yeah, this is a movie where Tom hardy does not cover up his mouth. Right? Good portion of it though. His face is covered sometimes sometimes, but at least the law, it's a Tom hardy movie. What were you surprised that it did as well as it did broke out in October record? You know, that's that was kind of the next place I wanted to go with this conversation is why is this movie a massive hit and I do have a theory. I think that there is a sense. People talk a lot about superhero fatigue. There are so many of these movies. There are something like twenty marvel cinematic universe movies, and just they come out now like three or four year, and they generally all do very, very well. So some of it is you, I think you do have a built in audience that goes to every marvel movie. But I also think this movie benefits from the subtraction of epic scale. When I go to a marvel movie, I'm often sitting there as I'm making my way to the theater trying to kind of piece together fragments of this mosaic of plot of like this kind didn't like this guy. You know, those are very Byzantine movies, and this is as totally weird as it is and as much of a kind of a shambles it as. It is. It's pretty simple and it's not expecting you to know a whole lot about its characters going in. It's an origin story that a lot of people don't know. A lot of people are coming into this movie, like venom, what's the weird blob on the poster is kind of what a lot of people associated with that. And I think this movie benefits as an October release from not having all of that weight on it and not having all of that scale to it. Well, we've kind of already talked about the fact that it kind of just ends up coming across as fun. I have to say my expectations were so low. I mean, the movie definitely benefits for me going in with wildly low expectations, but it also is that thing of is much as I really do. Enjoy the MC yell, like we're so far into it. Now there's so much you have to know. I think this movie benefited from low expectations the same way that ant man and wasp did not benefit from coming right after like Black Panther and Infinity war, which were so big and Black Panther was great, you know? So just to jump down. In in scale on that front where it's characters that are now deeply immersed in that world was weird and this really kind of let you just kind of put all of that aside and try to have a good time and it's fun and it's weird and it's again, it's not good, but it is interesting. There are jokes that I'm not expecting, and there's tone that I'm not expecting in part because it can't keep one the entire time. And there's also just kind of the way that venom ends up being as a character was unexpected to me at least. Little thin little line of quickness in this a little bit..

"Just like regular boring bed going. Talk with the weird over the top decisions like any rock climbing in the lobster tank at the restaurant. I was just like laughing hysterically, like what movie that is the that is a wonderful scene of just Tom hardy going nuts where you know he he's hot. So it gets in the lobster tank. And then he eats lobster because why not? It's I, I don't know when the movie was going there. I was having fun. I think it was Mike Ryan interview with Tom hardy about that or with Ruben Fleischer. But that was a purely Tom hardy decision. So I think like every instance where like, you know, Eddie Broncos crazy that is Tom hardy playing himself in a very different movie than everybody else. Yeah. And like I said, those action sequences where you know he's not in control and venom is taken down the dudes, and he's just sort of apologizing for hitting people at the time I, all of that is so fun. It's really a clever concept and conceit, and it works well, yeah, I would say this. I lived in San Francisco for a few years in movies, often are set in San Francisco and not actually shot in San Francisco, but it actually this film felt like it was actually a lot was shot. They're like the action scenes making use of the hills. Although whoever the cinematographer had this obsession with the whites on the bay bridge Geno we heard you never see the bay bridge featured as everybody's always all about the Golden Gate Bridge in bay bridge is the one I would use 'cause I live in the East Bay. It sounds like, oh cool. Somebody actually knows maybe cheaper to shoot to at a cut cut corners wherever they can. One one nice thing about this movie to you is I think it tries. To at least tries to hint at the, you know, the crazy imbalance between like a super rich tech people and be rampant, homeless population dilemma that San Francisco's facing a smarter movie, I think would have done more with it, but Lisa's movie like does something like there's not to it. Yeah. I mean it it conveniently gives Eddie Brock like a homeless person these friends with, and I mean, it's it is very trite all of that stuff. But. The casts I wanna talk. We talk about the cats. The. Yes, that is why we're in spoilers for that kiss. Okay. Go ahead. Talking about the kids. I gotta hear you guys talk about this. I'm never gonna. Forget that. Delight that was like a movie has given me the Tom hardy making out with his own alien parasite. I'm sorry. I know venom doesn't like the word parasite is thing that comes up several times that made me laugh every time. But I also had to like just kind of, you know, laugh and put my face like my hand on my face when when the lady venom shows up in, she's got like big boobs because like make it very clear that this is a lady venom. It makes no sense. I was like, sure. Okay. Why does Benham look Spiderman Spiderman even in this movie? Well, at least they didn't have the Spiderman symbol on his chest. I was glad of that. I was like, if that happens, I'm going to be very curious explain why that is needed. But at least he sort of had weird tones of color on his chest and steady Bronx, like latent patriots for Peter Parker, just like when across country with him in that's the talent ended up looking. Right? I guess you're you're right in referencing the fact that there is sort of. Hints of a back story that, or you know, with Peter Parker their own her. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. But I don't know. It's very odd. All of it is very odd. It's. P who in the writers from was like, let's let's do this. Let's do this kissing and not only that can seem like there's a moment later on where they like ADR like the mentioned it and I was like in the theater like, oh, my God. Yeah, that did happen. I know how that happened at you. Look at the drawing of venom in, it's like a giant tongue, and you go, well, we gotta have a French kiss with that tongue come on. Yeah, the the sex means on Twitter happened almost instantly after that. I rarely. So, yeah, this is not a surprise. Yeah, that very, it's gonna launch so much so much fan fiction. Yeah, I guess we also had..

"It because I cannot tell as fond of for so much, and I cannot tell how much of the humor in this movie is intentional. I just know that I laughed so much. I think that a lot of humor in this movie is intentional. I think this movie is in on its joke. I mean, Ruben Fleischer has made action comedies writing zombie land. He knows he knows how fun with his characters. And I think I think it's pretty clear that this movie is is having a funny silly time with it's primarily it's a little bit of both. Like my guess is that it's a little bit intentional in a little bit unintentional, but everyone was always like overinflate great director. He made zombie like he also made thirty minutes or less end gangster squad. So you know, let's come down here and it's true. That's true. Good movie. He's a guy that has made foregin movies and one of them everyone. Really likes. And then like the other three, everyone's like gangster squad. Honestly, as a movie that I hated so much. It still makes me angry when I remember that it exists. So you know, my expectations for this movie or not super high, but talking about Tom hardy. I mean, he was very puzzled as to why he took this role, but when you when I watched it, I was like, I mean, I kind of get it like he's having a lot of fun with it. He's really making it work like he's the movie, I think starts it starts out kind of like bad in that boring way where you're just like, oh my God, let's just get this over with. And then when venom and Tom hardy kind of come together, that's when the movie suddenly just explodes into something really odd and fun intentionally or not. And so I, yeah, I think he, I think he is doing a lot of the work of selling this movie and making it as durable as it is. I have to give them a lot of credit for that. So you're, you're describing it as enjoyable as fun. Is it a movie you liked the? Did you have a good time watching it? Would you recommend it ahead. A good time watching it. I don't know if I would recommend it or not. I would have to kind of think about who's asking me that question and like what they, what their taste in movies is like..

"This is this is what we get right. There was some thrilling parts. I'm not gonna front. There was some thrilling parts to me, but the dialogue was just, I don't know what's dash, Tom hardy with a synthesizer on his voice. I don't know if this is a totally different person. It just the dialogue venoms dialogue to do me off. He looks like. Nickelodeon slime. Blackened slime that sent? Yeah, an an it just I don't know, man. I'm gonna. I know I'm going to see it. I don't wanna see it, but I'm on like that. It's like rubbernecking for me like it's like I need to. I I'm intrigued enough that that may be grudgingly, go see it, but do believe that trailer was not all that man. That's not all that as a still a got me from a solid, no to I'm on the fence, but I'm still not sure like vice aound. Very tentative. That's right. That's how I feel that the trailer just made me just more concerned about being confused about what's happening. Say. One thing that really does like me, I'm not in the front, y'all, no matter how I feel about it. I'm their day one because its venom, you know, and it's Tom hardy, and I like him enough from their day one. And one thing that does intrigue me is that Ruben Fleischer director, and he also me land because I was talking about this on Twitter today was somebody about it, and we were like, it's doesn't feel like it's really going hard enough. On like yo, this is ridiculous. Does might be trash does might be movie, but it's going to be the best movie you ever saw. And that's what I want them to go with because its venom, you know, it's the nineties. I want him to go all the way in it just accepted either to be goofy and not like really like when he was making that speech to the guy talk about ROY. It was like a long speech about turning a rolling ball toured. I don't think then it would be having speech. That's anybody like I've never recalled. Then I'm having these long as. Hitter unless unless repeater Peter and Peter is such an integ- not Peter requirement and such an integral part of what makes venom venom is integral part of the relationship between that. You know the symbiosis and Eddie and like any Peter like It's just. just I can't. I'm I'm just grin is not Shakespearian no, no King Lear with a Symbian. Even taking all that away from problem was I thought, venom Likud enough. But in this movie so far it seems that he's battling riot who is another Symbian Symbian, you know character, but he's a great with like black, you know stuff on inversion. So when you even see them in a trailer for quick brief instant, it just felt like a hot mess because it's like the black and the greatest venom realized he was in. He's in it, but the black and the gray cinematic leaders. Good, good, good. And you don't like carnage? I think carnage would have been a much better choice that black versus read on strain. You know, if you're gonna do to these terrorists together, black and gray, I think was a bad choice that it just doesn't look good well, but the other part that confused me as I'm trying to understand the tone of the movie because at first seemed like they billing it like horror, but then they're billing. It also like a dark comedy and and not to say you can't be both can transcend jobs, it's not the problem. It's just that. If feels confused itself on what Jonah's trying to be in. Like it's trying too hard to be cool, like Spiderman, three kind of things. Oh, see, that's what's gonna say faith in it because every it's funny because everything you're bringing up, making me have more faith in it because it goes back to psalm beleaguered. It's just like when James took over from guardians in the first place, I knew he was going to do a good job because I'd seen movies sliver and slither has all elements that you see in guardians of the galaxy. And so I knew he was going to do a good job of that. And so this is me hope like really isn't a director because I think he can handle pull it off of horror and black comedy, dark, comedy, whatever you wanna call it together. I think that I think he so man. Yeah, I'm still I'm still confused. That's not an again..

"ruben fleischer" Discussed on /Film Daily
"Entirely separate marvel cinematic universe of their own that doesn't really feature spiderman but speech features a bunch of spiderman's supporting characters instead and venom is the first movie that is going to be in that new universe tom hardy is starring as venom ruben fleischer the director of zombie land is directing the movie and a rumor came out to a story came out that woody harrelson this was last year i think that woody harrelson was rumored to be close to in talks to joining or something like that we didn't really know much about his character but now because he was doing some press for his new movie and solo star wars story he has answered the question he is confirmed that he is going to be in venom he said i'm in a little fraction of this movie but i'll be in the next one you know so i haven't read that script but anyways just roll the dice which makes it sound like a very haphazard decision on his part like woody harrelson doesn't give a shit what he's doing is just like yeah sure why not whatever but he is reuniting with ruben fleischer who directed him in zombie land so i guess it makes sort of sense that way we originally heard that harrison would be playing a quote unquote henchman in venom and now the idea that he's in a little fraction of this movie but will likely play a much larger role in the second one has me wondering if he's actually going to be playing carnage which is a an rumor that went around that i think you wrote about a month or two ago and what do we know about carnage wh what does this character do you know.
