"Before we get back to the wrap party. Stay with us. uh-huh uh-huh uh-huh jokers eleven Oscar. Nominations eliciting some interesting pissing responses Josh. That was about my reaction as well. Wow tortured laugh. Joker just taking down the art of cinema with one batch chavez-oscar applications it's is done according to pack up the show. Yeah why go on. Maybe we should. I know you're kind of happy about Josh. Though you even even have to admit eleven Oscar. Nominations was a surprise. Oh I mean if I Y- yeah I mean the film. I liked for reasons that we might get to again later later in this show. But I don't think I would have had it in any of the categories that it did get nominated and maybe some of the technical ones I mean. I'm just looking quickly. And maybe when we get to asker a preview show will get into a little more of these details but I did have it when I voted in various critics groups in categories like costume design. I had on my list cinematography atrophy. I had on my list some of those areas. But your best picture wouldn't have made my cut didn't make my tongue okay. Well I guess that makes me feel a little better. I'm not I'm not completely ready for Arkham yet not yet. So that was Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix of course in that film directed by Todd Phillips. He was nominated. It'd Phillips that is in the directing and writing categories and once again big subject of conversation about the nominees the lack of representation just to name some of the most obvious oversights and this one really hurt the both of us. I know no LUPITA Django for us. I was surprised Jennifer Lopez. Didn't get nominated for hustlers. I actually had her on my c the FCA ballot in the fifth slot. No AQUAFINA or Josh Shuzhen for the farewell and I like Aquafina in that role. Not One of my favorite actress performances of the year here but John shu-chen was for best supporting actress for the farewells. So that was a disappointment. And you know who I actually voted for again in critics groups for best. Supporting actor was see. Ma as hyeon who plays billy's father in the farewell just The the level of emotions he accessed while also trying to hold so much back really moved me. I thought that was a great performance. I would've gone that way. Obviously one that cut me deep was no director nomination for little women's Greta Gerwig and maybe not a surprise if you consider that Selene Schema Emma's portrait of a lady on fire wasn't even France's official nominee for best international picture which is now what foreign language film is called. It's maybe not shocking that that got overlooked then. But that's a movie that is gonNA come up here in a little bit for both of us and the more I look back at it even though I didn't have it in my top five. I think it was my number six film of the year the more I watched a bunch of scenes from that film as Oh pair for this the more I realized I think it probably is one of five best directed films of the year it absolutely holy as an and here's an example of why. This is still so infuriating that the academy is not nominating. More women is. We can argue over. You know to people who we might think deserve to be in that group. You would probably argue for Greta Gerwig and it sounds like selene scam. I would definitely put. I voted for her in that category. The point is there aplenty of legit options for voters to choose from in plenty of head-scratching ones. Well did get nominated. Well that that too but I mean it's hard to get into voters mind for that what they liked but when there are these legit options out there that don't even appear to have been considered or even a jump back to Lupita neo in in us. It seems like a no brainer but I wasn't shocked either because you've got a couple biases at play here. The movie came out so long ago in the year. It's horror technically so it doesn't have that prestige factor but then again you consider young being previous winner. I mean what is going on there that that's one then again and didn't shock me that didn't happen But it's still pretty going I know we are going to get into the Oscars more in a couple of weeks when we do an Oscar pick show. We're hoping to have Michael Phillips from the Chicago Tribune. Join us for that. As he has in the past so we're not going to dwell too much more on the Oscars. I should say one thing that wasn't going and that I should be fairly pleased about. Joshua's might top five films of the year. I can't believe that I'm so in line with the academy but my top five were all nominated for best picture parasite the Irishman Mary Story Little Women. And once upon a time in Hollywood and I am grateful that little women at least wasn't completely overlook getting six nominations that one for director Jour- obviously is one the bugs me and I also think it was surely one of the best edited films of the year but happy about Florence pugh and some of the other nominations at got yeah definitely Florence. Pew is someone. I voted for best adapted. Screenplay was a no brainer so I'm glad to see that they honored little women there as well and there were things that I was happy about also I mean it. It isn't all gloom and doom for me five of films that made my top ten of twenty nineteen were recognized in major categories so best picture nominations for parasite the the Irishman and Joe. Joe Rabbit. Those were all my top. Ten best actor nod for Antonio Banderas in pain and glory. I mean it seems like you shouldn't have to say this but I was worried just because it's a Spanish language performance It might be overlooked or relegated to the sidelines. So I'm glad that didn't happen. And best original screenplay nomination for for my number nine film of the year. Ryen Johnson's knives out. We talked about the intricacy and the cleverness yet also the entertainment factor actor all coming together in that screenplay so it had to get that nomination glad to see it happen. Yeah me too. And we are going to share golden brick winner of the year in a few moments one of our golden brick finalists. Honey land got two nominations one for best international feature and won for best documentary feature so that was nice. See now on your facebook page Josh. You did call out the fact that maybe there were one too. Many popes. This year nominated both Jonathan Pryce for actor as Pope Francis in the two popes. Yeah and Anthony Hopkins as Pope Benedict in that film. And I'm calling shenanigans because you still watch that movie. Oh you caught me just just bus by Papacy bias through there. You know that that was mostly a response to of course I've heard from people who love the film but I just. This could be less interested in. I'm going to say that you need to turn that negative into positive gave Sam this same pep talk. I told him it's a breeze unreas- too great actors mostly engaged in great really fun smart dialogue. It's about challenging theological issues not a story that that I'm really interested but you know I look for similar reasons. I could say things about say the Queen of England and a pretty hooked on the crown. So I gotta give the material. Well how it's handled is all that matters right so with these nominations on probably end up looking at how many are there. There are two okay there are two I can do this movie anyway. And two okay and definitely. They were crowning or attempting to crown. Some familiar faces. There's you look at the nominees. And you've got Hopkins and Hanks there are some big big names these heavyweights and maybe a few of those could have been replaced by some upstarts. But as I said I like the two popes and even though Hopkins didn't make my ballot well it wouldn't have been a nominee for me. I think he's very good in the film and I think Jonathan prices exceptional so I don't mind that nomination at all we will have more thoughts on the Oscars in a few weeks. The ceremony is on Sunday February ninth this year and as I said hope that Michael Phillips on basically the week before that will do our picks for who will win win even though we have no idea will be horribly wrong. Who should win? We're going to be completely one hundred percent right about that and who should have been nominated which will probably argue you about. Yes looking ahead then. Next week it's our twenty twenty preview finally going to turn the page and look ahead instead of looking back. We are going to share our top five questions about the new movie year. I think part of the fun there without list is also looking back on the questions we asked last year and seeing how we did and seeing how those answers came out I think in a couple of cases the answers may surprise US also a couple of weeks actually on Oscars Eve. We've I hope this isn't affecting ticket. Sales Josh. Do people need like two days to prepare. Prepare author probably shopping for their for the dresses of galaxies young. Yeah so doing ticket. Sales hit my but we are going to be celebrating fifteen years of film spotting fifteen years at Chicago's music box theatre. We are going to talk. Look we're going to watch a movie we'RE GONNA talk. Some more will probably have a few drinks. You can do that at the music box and were excited about the movie which h we chose because it's a standout film one of the highlights of all of the marathons we've ever done in the history of film spotting but actually from the first ever marathon profonde in the show's history. That's our westerns. We called it at the time myself and Sam our producer. Now the western a week marathon and Josh as longtime listeners may have noticed we now only do marathons that are usually about four weeks before that they were six weeks a while the western week. Eight weeks eight weeks. He's Westerns we had to do. We had a lot of blind spots in our Western filmography so it was a great marathon and we loved Howard Hawks Rio Rio Bravo really ashamed that it took us that long to finally see it. And if you're like us and you still have never had a chance or even if you have you've probably never seen it on the big screen at had a place as beautiful as the music box in thirty five millimeter. Yeah that's going to be inexperienced can. Can I just admit now. I'd seen a fair amount of Westerns but Rio Bravo Rafeh was one. I had not seen until I think it was two thousand seventeen a couple years ago. It always loomed over me. I knew how much the two of you you Sam loved and you potentially not liking and it was just one of those areas. I didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings. I mean in some cases I'd like to but not real bravo. I mean. Come on who wants to be against Rio Bravo watched it. Two years ago absolutely fell in love. John Wayne Angie Dickinson Dean Martin and that signature sequence the song by the rifle my pony and me. Just we'll get we'll get into this. Don't spell too much but that is the movie that movie. It's not just because it's a good scene because it does the entire movie exactly and if you've come to live shows before you know that there's been at least one occasion and if you look back at many old shows there's been a couple here in studio where arrive busted out an instrument. I'm not saying it's going to happen. Josh Oh I don't know why I don't know why I couldn't bust out the guitar. I could try to be the Ricky Nelson Character Dr. You could definitely do your Best Martin and I see Sam was Walter Brennan in the corner just making crazy noises. Maybe jumping on the Honda. I was going to say we're remind me where the harmonicas. Yeah Sam. He's got a month okay because hill a harmonica. Otherwise I'm known for my tambourine. Yes no it's not in the scene but I didn't bring someone who wouldn't want to watch this actually. It sounds a little bit like torture. We do hope you will come out to the live event. Were so excited to celebrate fifteen years. We're excited to do it in front of a live audience and to see a great movie all the information you need about the night and to purchase tickets is available at film spotting dot net there some links and very prominent places you could it also just click on the events tab or go to the.

Sorry mob checks to say this people have binges in marble right now is what star wars used to be.

"ryen johnson" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Right now. I said I should degenerates or but yes you got. It was interesting because again the executives thought that wheeler would be a better value than Bumgarner or Kaikoura that they would rather their team signed him and yet he is also the most likely. Answer for overpaid. Now I will say seven declined to answer here seven with with almost half of the people that if I were I I don't know I don't want to put myself in the place of Jesse or crasnick here but if you were doing this like I feel like if I were doing this I would just say like you have to answer the whole point of this If if you're willing to I guess you can't before you ask the questions demand I and that was the one answer because they probably won't agree to that because you never know what the questions would be. But like I don't know I would want to prod them a bit because why would you not. What what's the harm? I Guess Anyway Wheeler Four Grand Dahl too which is interesting because this was before the signing but we we were talking last week about like. Is there something that we're missing out here in the public about Grondahl because it seems like he's worth more than he always makes and yet get to. People here thought that he would be most likely to be overpaid. Then we got Nick Castellanos. One and Daniel Hudson has is one and that's it because seven people declined to answer so Daniel Hudson. Yeah I mean I just got the yeah. Yeah he's coming off the last ROIC series closer on the world series team big gap between the fifth. All that but do you think. Do you think that the I think that there is I mean. Obviously this is not a very clear to anybody on baseball twitter. There's much more reluctance on baseball twitter to call player overpaid now than there would have been ten years ago ten years ago. Yeah we just couldn't wait to call people overpaid. We loved it. It was our favorite thing to call. A person was overpaid and now I think that it's a very different conversation about player value in whether like like that's a good dynamic to even like really engage with and all of that. Do you think there's any of the same reluctance in front offices. Do you think that that kind of culture of de emphasizing player contracts and The in worth quote unquote worth is also at all in front offices. Do you think they are Well I doubt they're thinking has changed but maybe the language that they use has changed just because you're heading into CBS negotiations and like for Instance Marquette Rig reported I think it was last winter that. MLB has this championship belt that they pass around to the team that does the best in arbitration and and it was just recently reported probably also by Merck that they have discontinued that practice. Obviously not because they are not going to be trying to win every dollar that can in arbitration or that. They won't be doing some backslapping among themselves for winning. But just because you don't WanNa have that public facing championship belt felt that just looks bad. You don't want to sway the average fan sympathies towards the player by being that obviously ostentatiously money grubbing so so I could see how teams would modulate their language but what that contribute to. They're not answering this question. Probably not I mean they could have just said well welty mean team friendly or player friendly that would be a way to phrase this to naming. GRONDAHL is an interesting one because yeah because last year I think he was probably the consensus. Most underpaid players in the market didn't develop for him and he ended up with a shockingly low total total valued. Oh you deal so. I took the under on on the predictions for him in fact because I thought I wonder if if he will still be underpaid if you will still not get you know what what the market should be for him so it's interesting that two people looked at as Mani Ron Paul. Who went in the off? Season as one of the The war leaders in baseball baseball in one of the top free agents and ended up with a one year deal would then say that's the guy who's GonNa get overpaid this year. It's interesting yeah I mean I guess what this says so it it specifies on a big contract which is most likely to be overpaid on a big contract and so you're probably going to take a pitcher wicket. Make sense that you take a picture just because there's the entry risk there and if you have a pitcher who hurts himself you know even if you just miss a year and a half was Tommy John or something thing than that makes it more likely that the skills will swing towards the player. So I think there's also an insider quoted here who who just says about wheeler what's on his resume which I guess is kind of what we think about wheeler when we look at him so obviously resume resume is not relevant here because this is future performance in except to the extent that you think his past performance predicts his future performances as it often does and with wheeler he does have a track record of injury and missing time. And who else are you going to pick like. If you're talking about big free agent pitcher her contracts there's coal there Strasbourg and there's wheeler basically like those are the only guys I think who were predicted to get like hundred million billion dollar or over deals so you probably not going to take cold. Just because he's so great then again he's GonNa be paid like he's so great so I guess yes. He could hurt himself too but he's been durable and Strasbourg has obviously had a lot of injury. Problems himself is at least coming off his most durable year. And maybe it's just because they think well we've only got like three big pitcher contracts. Choose from here. And we trust wheeler the Least East. He said less of a track record. He's had injuries and fewer accomplishment. So I can see why you would pick wheeler and I suppose I might to. Yeah Yeah it's Fa- I it is also worth pointing wheeler Has has been very good. The last two years young was incredible in the second half of the previous of two thousand eighteen. So it ED visits not. I don't even remember if this was fair about. Darren dreifort but Darren dreifort. Is The player that you think about the no track record youngish harm and this is not what I think. Think of as Darren Dreifort esque right. I mean he mueller over the past two years has been the pitcher that many many many teams would love to happen. That's their this is not all projection All right last question which of these hitters will produce more over the length of their next contract and that's always tricky Wendy's produce use more mean that they'll just be better. Does that take into account. The contract is that relative to what they'll be paid and if one signs for five years in the other side for two years does right after this you only have to be as good over those five years as many wars over those five years as the other two years. Yeah right so anyway. The three options are yes. Didi Gregorius care. Sell Zona or Nick All right I'M GONNA. I'm GonNa Cross Marcel off because I think that anybody who picks Marcello Zona over Didi Gregorius would pick castanos over Marcel Zuma so. I think that it comes down to whether you're going to pick in the shortstop or slugger and I think that I think it'll be Kasim's I think it'll be Mike Well I can't say unanimous because somebody said Castanos was going to be the most overpaid or whatever in the previous question. There's at least one front office guy who hates Castanos but I think it'll be Convincing Eleven for customs it is seven for Cast Diaz and six Rosanna. Oh to gregorious interesting. So wow that's I mean that's that's no real difference like Castanos who were basically tied. Yeah all right yeah there. It was a actually interesting something that I didn't mention here because we were talking about. How would the ball affect your decision making so one executive referred for two Anthony Riendeau in as juiced ball proof because of his ability to lay off borderline pitches while driving the ball into the gaps when he does swing so presumably? If he thinks that Donna's juiced ball proof than he must think other people are not just bob proof and so he must have been one of the executives that it chose some or allot instead of not at all. Will the ball effector decision. Making that assumes that if you're saying somebody somebody is juice ball proof you're saying that he will be good even though the ball is not going to be juiced anymore but the mystery is whether the ball is going to be juice anymore years essentially saying. How much does it affect? You're planning if you know that it is either going to be totally different than it. Was this year or exactly like this year. And you don't get to know like if you knew one way or the the other. If you knew that the ball was what the twenty twenty ball was going to play like then it could make some changes but here. You don't know whether it's going to play that way or not. And so you're having to decide how much just as the uncertainty of it affect your decisions and yes like random might be a player. Might I don't know if I would agree with that. But he might be a player. Who does they better in a with twenty eighteen ball relative to twenty nineteen and other players? But that would suggest that he does worse with the Twenty Nineteen Ball relative to twenty in eighteen than other players. And so what are your projection. Say The ball is going to be tough. Yeah one of the executive says that Castio analysis a gap doubles machine. That that should play in any ballpark. That is easy. Say coming off the year when he was indeed a doubles machine. I guess that makes sense right so that that is the first annual. Let's hope annual Rogers. Okay can I say one more thing. I meant to say this at the beginning. I just got back from seeing knives knives out the Ryen Johnson movie good movie. Everyone should see it. But it's a baseball movie and I'm not giving anything away here. There is just literally a baseball fell in the movie and some people in the facebook group were joking that the Irishman is a baseball movie because it mentions the modular Gallo who is also a baseball player. But no this says a real baseball movie. There's a baseball. It's just a thing that one of the characters just like the holding his hand and This is something that we see in more than just knives out like There are other characters in non baseball shows. That just like to have baseball in their hand. Or they like to have have A baseball on their desk or something. This character also displays the baseball on his desk. And and just has it there which is Like on the good wife Jess Charles just has a baseball on his desk at something that people have on their desks. And I think it's a a nice thing about baseball's there among the more satisfying justifying if not the most satisfying pieces of sports equipment. Just to have in your hand just to carry around with. You can't really say that about most of the other types of sports balls right because it's not much you can do with the football on your own fund to toss around a football Shir and you could even toss it up and down but you need to two hands really to do that and for basketball same thing unless you're a real basketball player. Who can palm ball or something? You can shoot it in a basket asked by yourself..

"Because we've seen these complaints like recently with Charlie's angels. Oh people don't have an interest in things that are not but these are films that kind of bucked the trend of these of this massive conglomerate of Disney and. They're doing well the box office. Yes though I do think I mean the one and I haven't seen it yet. I Really WanNa see Queen and slim. Yeah that one I am. It's awesome that it's making so much money because I think something like Ford Versus Ferrari is leaning on these talent and right. It's it's bail and Damon it's like Oh these these are like classic movie star Roles. Maybe that's I totally agree I I to sort of piggyback off. What I said about needing to see something recognizable? I wonder like if another filmmaker had just released a WHO done it. Yeah on on Thanksgiving weekend why would anyone be interested. It's it's it has a name I it reminds me of of US join us. If if some somebody that it didn't do get out just released a d'appel gang harm movie would have broke the records. It did. I think people always need something to latch onto to get them out of the house in into movie theater which I completely understand because not only is so much content on home especially with Disney plus and all that it's getting more and more expensive to go to the movie theaters. People want that guaranteed that they're going to see something that that that that is worth Leeann House for us. I think having Ryen Johnson's name which has been pretty prominence in the last Jedi. I came out for good or bad People know that I would go see a Ryan Johnson movie it no matter who it is and and he and because he is who is. He assembled this very recognizable castle. There's not there's not a person in that movie that you don't that they don't come on screen and you're like Oh nice there in this movie right yeah. I think that's a good point. You bring up both both points here this idea of meeting something to latch onto right With Ryan let's cast is fantastic but also great point like less than it doesn't come out and create all this fervor does Ryan do people people have this interest because there are many people who are detracting last were promoted sporting at how much live Ryan Johnson stuff so you get those people coming in the theater. Not even more so the patient is an an. It's getting fantastic reviews. Both of them have a minus cinema score. I think both one in Queens Queens slim have a minus cinema score but with swim to me. I can like an almost to like Harriet. People came in like there's not a lot of fanfare for it and then it comes in and really surprises with its box office. These positive. This is something something I wish I had more time to explore. Analyze this idea of how the And I want to say this correctly. How black filmgoers how? That community is responding learning to certain types of films that come out how the white community is Bonnie. How other sections of the of the movie going public are responding to the film that essentially the Bonnie and Clyde Film that response to a response police shootings. He's like okay we're tackling. It's really tough topic but look at. It hasn't drowned or buried. People actually going to see this so I find this fascinating I I just do because I find it fascinating. That like Hollywood has every time I am a a a a movie. That's not just like you know top line by by Chris Evans right comes out people like well. How's IT GONNA do it? Does it does surprisingly well when they keep doing well. It's like well. Maybe these audiences want to go to the movies and see these movies movies. That's my point that he audience here. That's being underserved and wants to be a queen and Slam I think is the is the most interesting case here because it really besides annual clue it. It doesn't really have any big name. Recognizable shoots the fact that people are coming out for it. There's something there which we all know what it is is is drawing people to the theater and I feel like that underserved audience I wanNA take only remained under served for so long but it has been so long I. It's it's almost like people are like. How is this movie doing so well and it's like it's doing as well as all the other who is accountable for it right and I wanna because something like black and blue which was a fantastic film? The price is good. That film was Comes out doesn't quite do as well. But it got good decent reviews from critics but overall doesn't do as well as some Quinn I think Kalou what's the my name people go. Okay Columbia's involved in because of Because of get out and and Black Panther and other projects. He's been any go to point out. We'll give it a a little thing and see what's here that's great but also four versus Ferrari and and and and a beautiful day in the neighborhood once again your point here Silence idea having the Tom Hanks attached to it people wanting to go. You see this on Thanksgiving Day weekend. That's positive overall. That's kind of a fascinating myself having one either yet. But it's it's kind of a recognizable property in Mr Rogers Rogers and an a list. All the dads went and saw all the Thanksgiving Dad's song for verse variety. And they drop the kids off a frozen Taylor. That's a good movie. I like four versus Ferrari serenely dad movie history. My Dad did did joe just not to be outdone. Joker was at number nine here with two million dollars over the weekend. It is now three hundred thirty point six million domestically and one point zero four eight billion dollars worldwide so far so so incredible jobs equal. I we've talked about it on here. At of course there were rumors about it happening. happening those conflicting Portsmith deadline. Hollywood reporter about whether it was going to happen or not any people coming out. I think it's going to happen. I just wonder if that's going to ruin. When joker overall if a sequel comes out in isn't as good like the Matrix I love the Matrix? Two pieces I bought it again over the weekend that new hd for whatever version they have. But it's always soured by the fact that the two two and three come right afterwards are nowhere near as good as that first one is what I worry about job ever so original in its approach. Yes I know it has influences but it was originally approach to superhero type situation so overall ticket sales dropped sixteen percent from last year's record setting through fifteen million but that is is not necessarily bad because last year there was rough breaks Internet cre- to and fantastic beasts and the Greenwich so. That's a lot to overcome but the success of this weekend helped narrow the a year today deficit from seven point seven sandwich. We talked about last Monday to five point six percent now in terms of the total ticket sales from last year and ticket sales this year. So that's a positive positive. Overall one last thing from Jim or universal's president domestic distribution he said everyone talks about how hard it is to make original movies. But you look at the top of the box office this weekend and and it's encouraging I agree I think it is encouraging so we'll see going forward with having the budget R rated movie Those those are the movies I just want to do so well I I love a good original mid like not huge not tiny no budget. There's there's those knives outsized movies are like the sweet spot that I think everyone should go support right right but are we really losing those. I guess I know what you need to move onto the next topic but are we. Is it overblown that those movies are not being consumed by the public at the the rate that they need to be or is it just like these were really good movies and people came to see. I think it's that they're not going to be made by an up and coming filmmaker I think they will absolutely need to have someone attached to them to get made it all. That's an ironic considering how Ryan. That's where John Boehner directly. It's ironic in that way. Yeah well let's move on to something. That is making a lot of money speaker. Ryan Johnson though he's directed this when that star wars the rises skywalker some new. TV spots dropped over the weekend. One call celebrate the other the one call hold on and then there was one that was released international overseas. So so much going on in this we get. We get Kylo Ren walking with his nights of Ren on what we assume destroy we get a Jedi mind trick moment we get lay a holding. Luke's lightsaber real space. Monster with the Millennium Falcon an escape. That feels just like the space slug moments from the original trilogy. Saw Go to you on this one. Silas I which one of these which one of these spot stood out for you which one of these moments like. What's from all the spots? Actually th th. The spots have really loved her. The the feature ATS. I think there've been too released. That sorta tie into the Star Wars legacy right And there was one I think was on Thanksgiving Day. That came out that Just has footage from the set of a new hope and it sort of moves through very quickly into rises skywalker. And that's that's what's working for me as a fan of just be reminded that it's it's part of this this bigger saga the one thing that I found sort of like weird eared when I look at rises Skywalker in and of itself is I love Star Wars I. I'm not as invested in this newer trilogy And and when I look at just the newer trilogy weird how short a period of time it is. It's like this right right right right like there was a longer distance between Melissa sent and malicious to this entire three films cycle and it's weird even in the narrative that it sort of adds that because last is jet takes place immediately after Force Awakens and there hasn't been as much room to breathe as I would have liked for the franchise but when they tie it back to that bigger like no. It's been forty year journey. That's working for me. Yeah what about you know what I find interesting about. All of these spots is that at first I was like wow. They're here's showing us a lot of this movie. But I almost sense of bro seeing the same two or three scenes every I. I think I feel like this surprises you that all the trailers trailers and spots for from like the first hour of the movie. And there's there's something completely different at the end I I W- When you sat me three. I was like wow. They are showing so much movie but I really do. Think it's all from the same the same scenes and they're just slicing and dicing and I like what I see. I don't know I am invested in this new trilogy. I hit me in the right way about the first two movies I if they like completely different films and there's all there's a lot of criticism that the force awakens is a remake a new hope which it is but I something about these. These movies just really hit me. And I'm very excited for it and the thing that I love about. These spas is just getting to hear I. I always butcher his last name in Derby Dermott. Yeah mcq Diarra. I will say this is just getting to getting to hear him. I do his PAL Patine. Just because because you just like takes a written the line was like let the final battle begin. Yeah but there was like eighteen syllables. That were not usually in those words the way he hear him. Deliver lines lines of Palestine again is just like that hits me right in like a nostalgia spot that is that is and I. Don't I don't like movies you know rely on nostalgia but there's just something about the way here in that man talk it's like wow. He was like a really good part of the prequels and he was. He's in my favorite star wars movie ever which is returned the jet..

"The third movie because because he had to scramble to get this done i'm sure that's why he's coming over making movie because eiger sees people handling his his two biggest IP's and he sees the one that he can trust right and you know i think there will i think we're going to a banger kevin flaggy at at minimum and you know maybe the ryen johnson movies unburdened with kind of having to deal with what abrams had set up and fan expectations will actually be fantastic so back to disney plus overall what are what are your guys feelings on the app myself i absolutely elite like there's so much content on there i'm in love with i came home friday night after a very long stressful week at work and just laid on the couch for two hours and watch tailspin and was incomplete like heaven so guys overall felix i mean this is oh you mean sorry this is the apotheosis of bob eiger tenure at disney right acquiring all this IP purchasing pixar purchasing marvel purchasing star wars allowed this app to launch with of content in addition to the disney involved and then the purchase of fox that no other app is going to be able to launch it's very telling you know within the within twelve days of each other other you know that that the apple TV one launch to frankly shrugs and now obviously apple's not in the same business and i think that a lot of these shows are really more or so they can put giant pictures of jennifer reese witherspoon in apple stores than they are to actually sell an app but you know the acquisition of all this IT key is what allowed this app to be so successful right is that we really people are excited because there's a lotta shit they wanna watch i shared my password with my brother other in his wife and my sister-in-law is super excited because she gets to sit the kiddos down and have the entire disney hall their enemies stop there which is now i'm i'm a huge fan of the incredible and the blackhawks i'm really happy that since we can't get a black hole videocassette anywhere that i get to see the blackhawks fan on this app but the video cassette period anywhere also true but that's the only way you can get the black culture and so you know i'm excited i get to see that but i'm more worksite obviously for having all the MC movies in one place and having you know an have arm yeah well mo- most of them in one place with the exception of black panther author and war and and they be guardians to an ant man to most of them in one place right but you know that it's really is as close to a kind of a four quadrant launch as you can get right with the having this much content that appeals of this many different people bowl and it's just it's it's a resounding success i mean ten million subscribers in two days so bill what so you well first of all i agree with john i mean besides take my interests out of it like in just a couple of days that we've had it in my daughter who's seven has sat there with the remote and explored there's so much for her to watch like between all the disney shows that are on there are like going back as far as lizzie mcguire that's so raven hannah montana and all that stuff she's gonna have stuff to entertain our forever the and then john said you add these like is even steven on the starring sheila booth yeah and the and the suite life zack cody like if there's all kinds of stuff on there and but what i like best about a two is like the layout of the app is spectacular like it's it's it's such an easy app to navigate they put their top IP's right in your face as soon as you open the thing up and yet the i just we're not gonna see like no matter what streaming services come out like when the HBO one i feel like will will make an impact when it comes out there the HBO max or whatever it is especially if they launched the friends reunion which that made some news this week but no no one is no one can come close to what disney has with this app i mean you can be on this thing twenty four hours a day every day you you won't get to the end of it like it's it's it is really staggering and it's unreal i feel like net flicks and they gotta oughta be concerned about you frank as the disney had kind of interested in your take as well yeah i mean this is something that would interest you guys we'll will you know one bit but one of the things that's on there that i'm like gaga over is the the show about the imagineering you know a whole season documentary series about building the parks yeah i'd be interested in that i mean that's not view yeah yeah but that's like porn for me as you about set your jerk off oh my god like i mean next to man the laurie and that's the thing i'm most excited about having women on there in the guy didn't even think about like all the disney afternoon cartoons that i used to watch every day when i get home from school like them all in one place gummy bears ducktail tails chippendale rescue rangers goof troop tailspin like they're all right there it's awesome it's amazing condiments endless in you know no you johnny talked about johnny talk about you know buying all those IP's and buying that library but i mean you think about it even before they may they bought fox or whatever else they bought think of the size is of their fucking vault you know in for years for years they've played this game with their movies where they've released them for for six months and then pulling back into the volt for ten years and then release them for six months in pulling back into the volt for ten years now they're all there you know it's it's awesome for kids it's awesome for my kids you know yeah like francesca of course is gonna love love you know all the all the disney oh the the animated movies and all the pixar movies but then you've got i've got my like tweens liam and isabel who you know they're going to get lizzy mcguire in hannah montana and you know all those all those shows that started that that young that young tween live action show john nra in you know and and i get to masturbate to hillary duff again again it's right no it's awesome it's slick liquors hell looking it's beautiful and i gotta be honest like i was worried because in this is you know take it from me you know disney from from a disney parks perspective has struggled with their internet user interface for the last last ten years everything they've ever put out including their my disney experience app in my opinion is very hard to fucking navigate and not intuitive active i was really concerned about that yeah i was not i however this thing is is your right bill this thing is slick it is sharp it's it's you open it in it just it's immersive you know you feel like you're in a disney app you i feel like you've entered this world in i mean the content you know it goes without saying is there's no where you're gonna find i mean thirty years of the simpsons yeah and i don't think about that in itself yeah not only that but signed up for the i mean i'm paying eleven seven bucks a month or twelve bucks a month and i'm getting disney plus hulu and ESPN plus all at once the i did the same thing it's it's so worth it used broad because to me obviously i'm very satisfied with it but the only big thing launched for me was really mando and then having access to is this content library i think a lot of the dialogue has been by adults talking about it has been sort of you got all this great content and you have and people are talking about mandatory but it's interesting to get your take frank because there is a lot of other stuff they launched with its new that's not just mando and it's not necessarily stuff that's targeted at the people who are going to talk about the difference between this app and that app and this IP kids sir my kids are super excited about the about the the the four key show from toy story toy story four that's on on there that live action lady in the trump that's on their daughter watched that last night was a good i don't know on whether but it's yeah i mean it it's it's really an it's really an app that the entire family can share you know i mean netflix had netflix had things the problem with netflix kids was deaf looks would have something that a kid wanted to watch and all of a sudden they'd be gone yeah you know and then they'd have the struggle then they'd put net flicks down for a couple of months and never go back to it and then they go back to it and they'd find something else and then that that would be gone this everything on there's not going anywhere yeah you know it's but i but you know this is just me talking like i'd like to see the more disney parks related stuff like i love this imagineering show i would like to see more stuff centered around the disney z. parks that's just me i know i know there's a lot of people out there that would like the same but they have the platform to do it now uh and yeah so just i'm excited i'm excited to dig into the thing and and just actually sit down and get some hours in and think about it think about what the conversation we just have less fifteen minutes we haven't talked about the eight marvel cinematic universe TV show coming to the right they haven't even hit yeah it's good enough now when does the window when when's that first one hit next year when it's a falcon winter soldiers i won like spring of twenty twenty one right so i thought it was i thought it was the i thought it was late twenty twenty was that one it might yeah you might be right but i mean it's so there's a lot of content yet to hit but again i think what you hit the nail on the head there frank is that you know netflix has been losing a lot of content because these the owners of this IP are no longer willing to sell it anymore they're bray they're collecting it back in i've certainly noticed that you know bringing back to my sister-in-law my brother their kids like they frankly before this app launch were actually dipping more into amazon prime than they were netflix made up of their kids because they just couldn't trust netflix to keep it all there and as netflix loses this IP which is why they've been launching so much new stuff you gotta remember what they originally were was they licensed other people's content and they added there and now they don't and we like a lot of that flick shows a lot of their new original content but they're gonna lose more and more of this they're not going to have access to allow these movies he's anymore as all these all these studios and all these companies roll it back in for their apps and no i think they're i think they're going to struggle on wanted to number two most watch things on netflix are i think it's office in friends in friends in the office and they're gonna lose both of them by twenty twenty one and that's a disaster for them but they just didn't they just paid a jillion dollars to get seinfeld i think they did they bought fought seinfeld it takes me all the way from hulu so that's the thing like netflix is going to be in a situation soon where it's all original oh content they're going to have to make original like but they have no they have no legacy of their own and the wrestling legacy is what brings people in right and really if you think about netflix original series content they haven't really had anything really land hard aside from the marvel shows which are not their's anymore stranger on stranger things stranger things and then i think you could make an argument for for a card house of cards sort of but that's like in the past dow and it's got such a stain on it now the people don't want to watch it i know orange orange is the new black with actually arch is the new black was actually there most-watched original show i i was not a fan of it but it was i guess fairly well regarded the one about suicide thirteen reasons why yes i mean they hadn't learned annette hard because i didn't watch it leads a pretty hard show as part of the national conversation true and i mean i think that you know getting going what you said frank frank like they've are already said you know anything about PG thirteen is gonna go to hulu it we're not gonna put it on disney plus so we're not gonna see deadpool you know we're not gonna see logan again which is a shame but but it's but it also keeps it friendly for the whole family right that means that there's nothing that francesca or my niece and nephew you can wade into jumble oppose going to be like do you guys agree with i mean do i agree that they should not be in one place i don't know.

"Like that but it's interesting to see what happens the the empire collapses in how do we get to the point where we went from a new republic to basically the first order becoming the new empire those are interesting things to to explore i i wouldn't want it to be explored the way they exported in the prequel trilogy but but i think it's it it's something that i'm i find fascinating so if it's if it's done well and right now i trust jon favreau and honestly not that i thought the lion king remake was all that good but it was somebody i think we can trust in general because i think he loves star wars and you know oh i think that he loves star wars in the way we want the people behind this love star wars i agree and you know and the kanobi mini series is going to be interesting because that's going to take place between episodes three and four which is sort of like a time period that they've kind of covered already so i mean it's got it's got the potential to be not good but i love you mcgregor and i love obi wan kanobi so i mean i'm okay with with them going back and using those legendary characters i i just i don't think everything needs to be a complete departure i guess is what i'm saying yeah i agree i mean i think that you know certainly i think of anyone coming out of the prequel trilogy the person who came out the best mcgregor and i don't think that really there's a lot of negativity negativity around him getting to go back dig into this character and i also you know i think we made this joke in the last time i was also like no one really thought that will be one was was just sitting around on tattooing waiting for luke to grow up enough to be a jet i right i mean there's clearly something happened there and it's a character everybody's fascinated by and it's an actor actor does have you know he's an actor the people like regardless of the box office of dr sleep and you know it's a character that you know i think star i phantom is is ready to see more of agree totally so the question then okay so john you started out this whole segment by saying this is the future of star wars this is this is where you wanna see star wars go so in your opinion both guys wear the star wars go oh theatrically after rises skywalker i mean i think well i gotta be honest i'm super concerned concerned that it's in the hands of johnson i being the the prick that he's turned out to be i really think he's going to double down down on what he did with the last jedi i wanna see i mean i think everybody liked the the real marks arcs wanna see knights of the old republic you know that's what i'd like to do like what i'd like to do is go back in go back like before before you citius before all that shit way the way back in in in in learn about well you know maybe you know the tribes of the south are in just learn a little bit about the night so the the knights of the republican can explore that deatrich li i mean to me you know with where we are with shows like you know the witcher and game of thrones and in options like that out there i think he could put a really relevant star wars trilogy out there if that's where you went and you did it well unfortunately i mean i take with ryan johnson do it's it's gonna be a super politically correct you know politically charged trilogy with all kinds of you know hidden messages suggestion meanings not so hidden maybe in i'm i'm afraid that's gonna blow it down just like the last jedi well i i mean the good thing i mean i don't think you're gonna i don't think you're going to get twenty minutes of the man delorean walking from point a. to point b. no but the good thing that's happened in the last gear so is it certainly seems like both the star wars people kathleen kennedy in company and ryan johnson have sort of it's not been as firm on whether he's actually going to do something or not and they and they've already cut being off in weiss loose so i don't it's certainly seemed like the disney guy i said after rise skywalker star wars theatrically is going on a high eight us which is as much as i love star wars it's probably a good idea for them to completely regroup figure out what story they wanna tell and then figure figure out who's best to tell it if they're gonna do nights of the old republic which i think they should there are certainly a million characters that are now noncanonical that are led that are the legends group that they should use their i mean because there are some of those books are just fantastic and i would love to see them come to life i don't fake ryan johnson's the guy to do that so and i think i think that they'll realize i don't think ryan johnson wants to do that i don't think he wants to do nights meal republic so that's the way they want to go they should figure out who's best suited to tell that story i think wait a couple of things here right so one is DND were apparently you going to explore how the jedi order was founded so they were going back even further but they were looking at more of the history of this galaxy that's now al gone so we won't see that i have a feeling that you know nothing is obviously come out the ryen johnson is going to be more interested in how he ended the last jedi right which is this kid with force powers and you know this kind of the hope that even you know having thing just few rebels left inspires this galaxy and i don't i don't think he's going to be bringing back and frankly i don't think it seemed like daisy ridley in particular he's just not interested in doing this after the third movie but you know you never know money talks although i think john boyega would jump at it i think john would jump at it you know i think oscar isaac is he doesn't need it but that doesn't mean he won't do it these early seems like out of everybody he certainly seems like he's having a lot of fun he does seem like he enjoys it but i mean clearly to me even going back to force awakens in abrahams the idea was not that this is the end right this is just the transition between between the between return of the jedi and a new cast of characters to take this series moving forward i kind of don't think that's going to happen at this point you know i think that whatever intentions j.j abrams had an kathleen kennedy had at the time are now not the case and i you know i wanna keep hammering on her but i don't trust her so i don't think the kathleen kennedy frankly is qualified to to be the the kevin feige of this universe and i'm very happy to cabinet by coming over makers on star wars movie because i do trust is where i wanted to go where like where does see now aw if kevin wants to make build republican sign me up i mean kevin baggy wants to make anything sign me up where i'm at the point now where i implicitly trust him you know to make pretty much anything right and that you know he's earned it and he's earned box office wise he's earned it with the quality of the marble vilis even the ones that you know don't make nick the huge amount of bank are frankly ones i think people secretly really love like ant man and stuff like that everybody's super excited that is going to be an through even though they don't make the same box offices we know say a you know an IRA movie or something like that so you know what i'm i'm interested to see what can five he wants to do in this university of his his plate is very full at this point you know with taking over full creative control over all of marvel now you know what that really means for him as far as how much time he has to put into everything is gonna be interesting question as well and how much he has to delegate and the people that the ends of delegating wanting those things to we'll hire a great director i mean that's for sure and be somebody out of left field it'll be somebody that you know you're you're gonna be scratching your head of the the time of saying like these guys only directed episodes of community is not going to be very good at this and they're gonna end up being excellent because that's how that's how he rolls you know so i obviously i'm watch more excited for the kevin five movie than i am for a ryan johnson getting another shot there's that being said you know ryan johnson has made some very good movies and i have a feeling is out is going to be good as well i really want and clearly there is a very big divide on latch at i write a lot of people especially a lot of people who i think to be blunt hardcore star wars fans thought latch at i was somewhere between fine fine and fantastic and i have a feeling that those people are not necessarily people especially people who think is fantastic that i necessarily want to have a conversation with by because we probably disagree on a lot of things but you know it's not like he's in he also directed a couple of great episodes of breaking bad the guy knows what he's doing he's not competent you know i think he i think he certainly has as frank alluded to a very specific political agenda that he he laced i into the last jedi i must have people's dismay but you know and i i wouldn't i don't think that's gonna go away although it might depend on how the twenty twenty election goes does so you know but i think there's a lot of avenues to go here i think bob iger has also seen the writing on the wall with kathleen kennedy a little bit you know you can't have the kind of disastrous creative track record that she's had of basically having to bring in another director to redirect indirect portions of rogue one and unloading lord miller and then the failure of solo at the box office regardless of what we feel about the quality of that movie you know oh and then having to know the firing to other directors and having to kind of almost seemingly beg JJ come back and make this third movie you know there's has been a lot of very on founded or not as unsubstantiated rumors about abrahams not really having the time to make aac this movie because he wasn't prepared to make that there's been a lot of last minute adjustments have being have having to be made with.

"Hello folks welcome back Chris. Ask God to have you back in the states. Thanks well. We're we're talking today about the Toronto International Film Festival Why should people care about this because I think it's a different beast than like Sundance on? It's like the smaller films that were trying to give exposure to like you know. There's GonNa be some possible breakouts. That's out there. This is more like a word contenders right. I don't WanNa get I don't WanNa make it sound like that. I only care about award season because is I honestly am not big on award season in general but the the Toronto Film Festival along with stuff like you know the Venice Film Festival and Telluride Film Festival. They all happened around the same meantime. This is like the official kickoff to award season so a lot of the films that debut at Toronto are the are the films were going to be talking about for the next several months Ad Nauseam as you know award season heats up and people think you know this is what's going to get nominated for this and so on and so so forth and a lot of times you know a lot of times. The films that debut at Toronto are some of the best films of the year not exclusively you know there are films that come out earlier earlier in the year that ended up being some of the best movies the two but Toronto has a really good amount of of stuff and it's not just ah it's it's a it's an eclectic blend because they have big Hollywood stuff but there's also really small indie stuff there. You know there's foreign stuff so it. It's a it's a really nice mix of films. There's something for everyone yes. Oh people should care about this because these are films that they should put on the radar because we're going to be hearing about about this for the next these films for the next three or four months what how was your Toronto experiences here. It was good this this felt felt like the busiest year for me or I don't know maybe it's because I am getting older and therefore my body is shutting down but I was. I was much more more exhausted this year than I have been any other year. this is my fourth year going and my first two years I was. I was raring go I could. I could pretty much go all night this year man by the time you know my my screenings for the day got done. I was like limping back back to the room and just like I need. I need rest but beyond that it was it was it was a great experience. I love going to tiff I believe I've said this before but one of my favorite things about tiff is that it's it's like a community experience of people who actually care about movies because because most of the screenings I go to here in my area the Philadelphia area their their screenings that are both there are these mixed screening so you have press with contest winners and these are my least favorite screenings of all time because while the the people from the press like me are there for the film a lot of the contest winners they don't really care what they're seeing. They just like the idea of seeing a free free movie so they're they're just basically there for her shits and giggles and as a result it can make for some really frustrating moviegoing because you'll just have a crowd who just clearly doesn't give give a crap and what I love about tiff. Is everyone there there to see the movies and sure you you will get this is true any festival you will get a few like straggler people who we'll check their phones during the movies because I don't know they're jerks but beyond that yeah especially in the industry screenings I I A- tiff many years had been sat next to like buyers or whatever they would be on their phones the whole time and it was like right there. There's this one guy I see him. Every year I don't know his name but he has this really fiqh long island accent and and every time I'm at a press screening Tiv- I sorta got has happened at all four years I see this guy and before every screening he'll be on the phone with someone talking talking about what he's seeing and he's he's clearly like not a distributor but he runs a theater so he's he's he's looking for stuff to play at his theater and hope he on the phone and he'll always be like I just saw and then hold me like He. He'll never remember the movie the the name of the movie. I'll just be like I just saw the movie I don't know what it's called with Robert Pattinson and he just goes on and on and then the movie stars L. Check his phone through the whole movie and I see this guy every year but but beyond him I it's it's a I'd say like ninety percent of the crowd. I is a good crowd did did you have any notable experiences. I saw you got to interview Nicholas Cage I did. I don't really like to do interviews at tiff because it cuts into screening times eh every every screening you know I it's like a fight to get to every movie on time because not everything is at the same theatre and sometime stuff ends like ms before the next thing you gotta see so you got a book into the theater so I tend to avoid interviews for that reason but I got offered an interview with Nicholas Cage and Richard Stanley for the Colorado space which is a new movie from Spectra Vision. They released Mandy Andy and Richard Stanley. If the folks at home don't know he's sort of this notorious filmmaker. He was he started as like cult filmmaker he direct a film called a hard wire and dust devil and he his his quote unquote big Hollywood break. I was going to be the island of Dr Moreau with Marlon Brando in Val kilmer and there's a documentary about this called law soul and it's all about how the the shoot was just an absolute disaster and the studio fired him and replaced him with John Frankenheimer and that's sort of like derail his career he'd he'd stop op directing features. He made a few short films but he hadn't directed a feature film since that film which came out and then I think it was either ninety three or ninety four so Colorado space is like his big comeback so to speak his his return to feature filmmaking and Nicholas Cage is in the movie and you know when I got offered for to interview them. I was like well. That's that's too good of a an interview to pass obsolete. I said yes that I was very nervous. I was more nervous about talking to Nick Cage but I gotta say cage. I don't WanNA use the word boring but he's very normal person. I know I know we all think of Nicholas this cage as this raving lunatic because that's what he plays in his movies but he was so like nonchalant nonchalant and you know maybe he was tire twitter's early in the morning. I don't know but it was like it was literally like talking to someone's like Dad. It was just like Oh. This is just normal normal man Richard Stanley however was very interesting to talk to because he's one of those guys you talk to him and you're like Oh my God. This guy is like smarter Margaret than anyone in the world but he's he's smart in that really crazy way where he talks really fast and you have your like. What the Hell is this guy? Hey you have to like slow down the process what he's saying so that was a really interesting interview and the interview is actually up on slash all DOT com. It's actually a shortened version because the PR people asked me to run a short version now and then a longer version for when the film actually comes out it doesn't was never released eight yet okay. We'll we'll link that interview in the show notes. was there any other craziness like you were at some like the big parties attef and that's always crazy easy because you're at a party with tons of directors and actors like all of the films all around you yeah. That's another thing I don't usually go to parties but this this year I was like you know what I'm going to make an effort to go to parties so I went to two parties one was for knives out the Ryen Johnson movie and the other was for joker and knives out was the the most crowded party I've ever been to in my life where the point where I couldn't move at all and A- and yeah and that's exactly like an experience. You'd like to have your that's exactly I love big crowds being being squished against people knives out the knives party was a little better for me because there were a few people if you fellow critics there that I knew so I was able to talk with them the Joker Party I felt like I was like a burglar who had broken into a mansion because everyone everyone there was was was famous at the Joker Party. it was a name like me and like I I actually I went out and bought like a nice blazer to wear because I I went to look presentable for this party and so I looked okay but I felt so at a place because everyone there was either like famous or very attractive on like I was at the bar ordering drink and Jon Hamm just comes comes walking right up next to me and orders drink and I was like oh Jesus. This is very strange and then of course like Lockheed Phoenix is there and Rooney Mara is there Edward Norton was there just all these people who are actors and celebrities were mingling about and you know some people. They have no trouble L. A. Approaching people like this like I I know I'm not gonNA name names but I I know for a fact. There are several of our colleagues Eric Davis no yeah I mean he's. He's better at that because he's he's. He's well known but therapy. I mean yes absolutely who will just go right off to these people and be like how you doing. I cannot do that this wasn't even at a party but for example at at a screening of a movie Ryan Ryan Johnson because he was there for knives out but this wasn't the knives out screening Ryan Johnson came in and he sat down and the men he sat down like four or five critics who are sitting with me got up and ran over to him and Ryan Jonathan. He's a nice guy. He put up with them talking to him but in in my head I was like these people are being a little rude like I know if I were like a famous filmmaker and I sat down to watch a movie and like four people people came swarming over me that I didn't actually know I'd be like please get away from me but but but that's one of the things about Ryan Johnson is he makes everybody everybody in the film community like feel like they're his friend yeah. He's a he's a really nice guy. You can tell he's a nice guy and he's really happy to talk to his fans hands. He's really appreciative so you know I don't you know at the same time. I don't fault these critics for wanting to do that because you have to. Schmooze a bit to get ahead in this business is but I'm not at the point where I feel comfortable going up to someone and being like Hello Ryan Johnson I could never do that. It's funny the thing you mentioned eh you feeling like you broke into the party. It's mixed variance. I felt so many times at Toronto and Sundance and it it's funny like with all those people in the room. You would expect that like you know oh I come home and my friends would be like. Did you talk to who did you talk to and so now I was in the corner with the other three people I knew at the party talking to them right exactly like at that joker part I was like literally in a corner eating cheese because there is a cheese plate so it's like all these famous attractive people talking and then like me and a quarter in the dark munching on cheese so that was my big party experience. Okay we should probably talk about the film's for almost fifteen minutes in the air and yeah. Let's let's do this. Let's do your top ten. Let's do it from the bottom to the top so we have some anticipation here. So what is your you're number ten film of the festival right so just a quick forward here these are only the films I've seen because yeah I've been getting a lot of comments on twitter being like Chris..

"So so listen. Here we go. Peter. I here we go, so he's got knives out coming out this year, and my, my question of to this person, Bryce from Utah, who wrote in is if I were to crash on this island before knives outcomes out, I have to assume that because this person is still a working filmmaker than a, a Blu Ray version of every movie, they are going to make in the future, eventually, one by one just comes. And parachutes into this island, like people are not able to rescue me for some reason, but I am able to get special deliveries of one directors movies from their filmography. So that, that sort of. Roles like I'm the rule of like that. That is a different question. If you could only watch like one filmmakers, feature films for the rest of your life like you can only pick when I feel like that's a totally different question. I mean are no Peter. I'm reading I'm playing by a different set of rules over here. And then also, I think, you know, look in that same mode of thinking, in terms of, like trying to find loopholes and stuff. The questions specifically says a specific set of Blu rays from only one director, so Magdi, Ron Johnson alter directed episodes of terriers and breaking bad, which are to my favorite shows. So if the his TV work is included in a Blu Ray that means that I get the box set of both of those shows so that includes TV and there as well. So, yeah, I don't know hauling of this. I didn't expect bend v pulling the loopholes with the jets there. This is interests that would this loophole. Chris do you wanna change your finger? You still scarcity Scorsese. Getting trop Toffler loss. I imagine it's like a FedEx package like in castaway where it's something just washed ashore. And then you have the latest ryen Johnson foam or you like loss. They had to the palate drop. Big tubs of mayo. That it's just one Blu. Ray of nicely on Blu. Ray giant powers. Yeah, I guess, I want to know more about this island is it like the lost island. Like, is there a hatch is there a polar bear are the others? Lurking, pretty well. I rather explore the island I fry sit down and watch some movies, the other thing that my wife brought up because I pose this question to her right before I came on to join you guys. And she was like talking about those older records that I mentioned, and she's like, maybe a lot of their movies aren't available on, Blu Ray. So, like what happens there, and I was like, oh, yeah, it's a good point. So maybe I know Ryan Johnson stuff is available on, Blu Ray. So they have that, you know, if you're getting into the technicalities here, a specific set of blue rays, maybe some of their older stuff is only billable on DVD or something like that. So, you know, all these things you have to factor in when you make decisions one thing, I like about your naming of all the older directors, and they're very storied filmography, is that if. It sounded like you're trying to rebuild civilization. Like if I was last person, or like a have to save cinema. George. Huge range of stuff because he's were, you know, they're working in the studio system, and there were just like directors for higher and manage to make a bunch of stuff that sort of transcended what you think of to be like a journeyman style career. But yeah, there's so much variation in their filmography there. But yeah, anyway, that was my thought process. We should do that question. At another, like, if aliens came to earth, and you had to show them, five films, represent all of humanity. Those. Yes. Yeah. Okay.

"That's an interesting one. That's definitely an interesting one. I just wanna make sure they understand that. So if if they're ball splashes in the water, and they all know splashing the water that it's casual and they can't find it. Well, they won't find casual water anymore. It's abnormal ground condition. Right. But what is? They will. It's temporary water. Splash share UCF Spicer spectator. I saw the ball go right in there. Let's say the water six inches deep, and it's still temporary water. I'm having to make you walk out there and gonna find your ball, you your balls in there. Stars nearest point relief. No, closer, the whole. What you're going to do is find a spot where just exactly what you're saying? No closer to the whole or to dry. You're not pushing water when you take your stay. You're not standing water when you drop it. And you got that same drought relief area that you've got for any other job on clubland either way nine times out at ten. It turns out to be a quarter of the circle because you can't you're at the edge of the temporary water. Right. Yeah. So you see my point is. Circle. Temporary water, and you could have the circle. But again going back to what you're saying. We've got to know that that ball landed in that temporary. Certain isn't that what is virtually certain ninety five percent? Sure. Yeah. Well, we appreciate you calling in. We we hope to talk about that. We we don't want to spend too much time with the season. But we'll probably call you for a few questions. We do have on the show. Thanks so much of the week. The heck you we'll be right back for our last segment with the Horton Smith winter this year ryen Johnson at Huntington, we invented.
