"You guys wanna make some money definitely not a boy at db picks ma boys. The dust. Brothers are the kings of handicapping. I'm not joking. They are fucking like sixty eight percent winners right now I'm really seeing many people. You know we're going to talk about vegas. Dave was crazy. Is i had no issue vegas dave except for the fact that he was buying followers buying fucking comments or anything. He blocked me so fucking larry's right and he was like. Oh you're doing picks bro. I don't even fucking pay attention. Picks right but a do is just crazy. You say one thing and completely the opposite his fucking hilarious so follow at db picks twitter instagram. You could. Dm them on the graham sign up to that program you can either get a subscription or you could just buy a tier one pick tier to pick. They are kicking fucking ass okay. Dave had many days where they've gone to in. Oh seven oh undefeated. It's insane ago seven and now but they are kicking ass. Okay so make sure you follow at db picks if you're gambling. He wants to get them picks. We're gonna start doing some more shit with some big people. I'm in the process of negotiating a deal with a couple of people so i don't wanna mention their names but they will go hand in hand with these picks so with that said on these mba playoffs right. Now as you know that lanta hawks are still four. Mother fucking real. I'm not gigantic young fan. But he's out there last night. You know these mother fuckers were down by twenty something okay there down by over twenty points. They thought that the fucking philly thought it was a rap and They came back and then fucking around so she is getting crazy as a motherfucker philly though philly should just be easily winning this fucking thing right now you would think right so i do think. Come out and win the series. If they don't think it'd be fucking awesome. If the hawks win series. I want the hawks win the fucking east because now the east is sorta up for grabs right. The nets are in trouble right. Now you've got kyri hurt you got. James harden hurt so now k. D. has to fuck and rise to the occasion. He is definitely a best player in the nba. There's no doubt about it. Iraq would k. d. Another some things that people say that you know he does and everything into some things that i don't necessarily agree with and am a friend friendly katie's that doesn't fucking matter. I will say that lebron did do some shit What three years ago right with the fucking cavaliers and came back three one deficit and did win. So this is the time to show who the fuck you are for real. And if katie does that and he could be milwaukee doing what they're doing then is fucking on and cracking but they might be in some other fucking trouble so the east is up for grabs. I have no idea what the fuck is going on. Now for the west look i thi- utah was a lock and now utah's to to with the clippers. Okay i don't think the clippers are going to go to western fund. I mean not. Sorry i don't think they're going to go to the finals. Okay i think either utah. Or the clippers are going to get fucking squashed like bugs by the fucking phoenix suns can carry. The sons are going to wax that ass. They're definitely going to the finals. There's no question about it again. I'm upset that we didn't win. And if we had a healthy ad and we had a healthy lebron we would probably end up in the western funds. We would fuck around and get that back to back chip on think about it. It's just fucking on so many motherfuckers go marriages being salty but again at that's how i truly feel so i i got two sons and it'll be you know what i'll be honest with you to see chris paul get his fucking ship finally be fucking nice he definitely definitely deserves it and is definitely something you know. I don't really fuck with them booker. i don't know what it is man. something about. Just the way he plays anything else. Got nothing to do with him. Dane kendall jenner. I love kendall. She's blind my favorite person. Atomosa sisters and nine on going to get a fucking message from kim. Oh really kindles your favorite like now. But anyways Rockwood devon man. But i do think the suns are going to go to the finals. I really do hope they win. But a sons nets. Finals is not gonna be exciting without hardened fucking and kyrie so a sons versus hawks finals would be dope but it would also be put philly look philly or the fucking on the bucks. Shot wa boy. Pj tucker who's been hitting me up a chain made you know what i'm game for any of that. So far is getting crazy again. Get to hit db picks for the motherfucking betting picks are. They are the truth. Make sure you hit them up and get those gambling. Betting picks so anyways. Keep it on basketball. Think i talk to you guys last week or two weeks ago about these guys on tiktok name the broadcast boys two dudes from new york city Amazing fucking content fucking great and they recommended a sports documentary for a dude. By the name of lenny. Cooke kate crazy thing is honoring fucking hurdle any cook. And i know a lot of you guys. Even deep basketball fans never heard any cook. Now if you're from nyc and you're from nyc you know you're at least thirty. Maybe you know what i'm saying. Maybe you know at least thirty. So if you're thirty five and you should probably know who lenny cooke as if from brooklyn especially this documentary. Fuck me up. What fuck me up even more. Is that the sakti brothers produced and directed this fucking documentary. Yes josh and ben safdie of uncut gems in good times and they're redoing the famous eddie murphy.

There for a possible fallout that she was in but yeah she's awesome. Do she looks this. This movie looks absolutely awesome. My this is really great. I it is a it is dealing with something that a lot of people do deal with and it hasn't really doesn't really get covid in a lot of movies and that's when you lose a child like how do you move forward you know. How do you move forward. And how do you rebuild yourself how he'd like you are shouted your family shouted you've all of these things where your child is about to be on. And how do you get rid of those things like you know. How do you start erasing and moving on. And it's really interesting to me to see a character like the neces- covey's characters Who is a mother who is attached to that child. They've been growing in the summit for so long while you know you've got shell character. Who is presumably the love. All the husband. I don't know who is begging her to move on.

"Were standing on commonwealth avenue in boston on campus. Waiting for the light to change. And i looked at him i was like. Oh this guy looks like new york guy. I i feel like i can talk to this guy. He did the same and And the rest is history. So i became. That was josh safdie then. Benny saffy wasn't at bu. Yet in and josh and i moved in together we roommates junior year and senior year. We have this This apartment and by that's how you so. This is what started kind of this. This trajectory to uncut gems which was just mutant directors on the street. Yeah we had. We had a lot of similar mentalities in terms of challenging. We i mean we were. We challenging teachers constantly. We were really rebellious. Like i remember taking a low brow comedy class. And i started cutting class to go bowling and then the professor heard about it so he started cutting his own class to come bowling with us and then pretty soon the entire class which just started showing up with the bowling. I just because i didn't. I didn't want to deal with his low brow credit. But yeah there. Is this kind of attitude. We were like kind of all big big swinging on campus you. You weren't tweet which was really popular at the time dawson's creek which is popular ten years before the view. Yeah we were kind of aggressive. And i was obsessed with the french new wave and he was obsessed with like seventies american cinema and there was just enough of a van diagram where we were like. Okay we we come together and on those early days. I mean we were the three of us along with two other. Bu kids traits brecqhou. It's Just started pumping out shorts as fast as we could and i was the producer. And when you're making short films especially like in college immediately out of college and when you move back to new york and you've got to pay your rent and figure out how to do that producing meant blake everything feeding people picking up the talent but it also meant dealing with locations getting the props making sure everything looked right. There's a lot of people listening to this. That probably relate to that and are like that's my life. Yeah and i knew that the aesthetically creative stuff. I enjoyed more but it was the same kind of problem solving ended. There's very little that even even on the movies i do now. I don't see very very much different. Between what a line producer does the production designer does except the line producer is dealing with the business of making the movie and the production designer is dealing with the day to day operations of the look of the movie but the communication stuff and the preparatory nature of. It's very similar so that i could do it. I can totally deal with props. I could totally manufacture things. And i had a glue gun and i could make little props and things like logistics making sure that all the physical elements needed to actually shoot. The darn thing are on time. That is absolutely. What producer does i never thought about it that way but it was the logistics of the creative stuff the look of the thing and that i really sunk my teeth into josh. Benny and i got a studio downtown and we were just trying to. I don't know how abbreviated you want the story because people do people do the full. Story's better gets it gets a little intense. It's pretty crazy so josh. Benny and i moved back some york. I moved into an apartment with josh east village. And benny still had another year college..

"And he's a jared. Jared just not do them when this time Komo just a dude in some fucking dockers Polo Jared Leto logo on it holding yet clipboard. Thirty seconds to Mars head on. He's wearing a red hat. Care Leto team in colors are blue and white. Yes the moebius looks cool. There's not much more to say about. The end was shocking. Yes the Michael King was was a stunner and you know what I hope. They find a way to make it to make it work with both marvel cinematic universe ins and Sony spider verse because I I living benefits both of them I really do. I think it's too confusing for audiences. I think. That's the real game theory. I think they play chicken with each other. But but then they realized that they needed each other for Spiderman tangential type movies because it's too confusing to have a separate universe. It is let out it is. I agree completely and figure out what to do. They really WHO's the prisoner's dilemma. Where they both don't snitch? BIRDS OF PREY. That's another one that got a trailer and I think we all mostly didn't like the first trailer. This kid came out like the day we lasted. News came out after the last eight. We'll talk about it. I didn't love the first trailer I didn't think the focus was enough on Harlequin. It just had really bad suicide squad vibes to it. I want the folks Harley Quinn. I want the focus on you and McGregor's Gregor's character Black Mask Romans. Jonas beater ACO miss his name. A friend of mine told me he. She was screaming at his phone at the thing. It's like it's apparently battery bill. I got a message about that and be like you did to me so much. fucking trouble man we. I'd have James again just talking today Yeah anyway the focus on this trailer way more on Harley Quinn and I like this trailer as well I. I was very skeptical. Doesn't I think it's still might stink comes out very soon less than a month from now but I am looking forward to seeing because I'll tell you what no matter the content you fucking Mugrabi on the screen for most of the movie and you make at least for the most part the main focus and you McGregor. There's other great actresses in this as well but when you focus it up. I'm like suicide squad. I mean I'm going to be interested. It's hard not to like that with that's with the censor The censoring the word. Fuck in the trailer and it's still played so that's what they said you know. Maybe it's January in my expectations are are now in January mode and maybe I'm somewhat relieved of not really having to watch good movies immediately anymore because we went on a string of watching the prestige December movies that are going to be nominated for Oscars but it's palate cleansing season folks. And this is what I feel like this movie. Is I think this is a pallet cleanser to sixty sealing. The action looks competent. About one of the main problems is that they did. The there isn't enough characterization for the birds of Prey Gang But I think they're right to focus in Harlequin because she's The star that's who you're there to Assey and that's smart No I totally agree. Would you build up the build up the other characters kind in the background. Make them slowly become people we care about as we make Harley Quinn the main focus it doesn't that seem like the right recipe there and then eventually it's good. You do another one. Where maybe they are more in a spotlight whose fault the Guardians Formula Man? I think guardians kind of set. This up perfectly. You can have an entire gang a superheroes well also focusing mostly on one member of it. It's not like an impossible. Awesome thing to do and to give them still some sort of characterization and I mean I I agree to hold the big draw for this movie is going to be Margot Robie matter what right because like she like. GEICO quincy the character out of this entire group. I'm sure plenty of concrete people black mask and all that and hunter is black. Canary all that. But like I think everyone there from like the mainstream minds to their C- Harley Quin and I think that's good I think she's Mugabe's a fantastic actress love you McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead House to. I don't know if you guys didn't see this season Fargo. If belichick was season three she was really good in that Love her Rosie President Ali. Wong is I think. One of the Funnier COMEDIANS around right now loved to see her in this too. I think as long as they kind of. Keep the vibe of being like colorful and fucking freaky but not like you know kind of almost like falsely freaky like it. Wasn't suicide squad like Freaky for the point. Lina being freaky then like I. I think it's going to be good. I also interested in the soundtrack to be huge because you can see the track listing. It's up all night teams right now. in a lot of names I don't recognize but it appears to be a All women Track list which I think fits in with the theme of the the the move very well the only two names I think I recognize on here are Halsey in begging stallion or at least I don't know how to pronounce it on Thirty Five folks. I but I also recognize that I think all these artists are probably pretty good. I just I. I don't know who's who anymore I don't listen to anything except Franz Ferdinand my beautiful dark twisted fantasy. I just can't my brain is just shrunken can too small to have any mental capacity respect. I think this'll be really cool. Because that was one thing I really liked about suicide squad and this this looks neat cool. Oh good times good times local school looks pretty damn very cool soundtrack. Would you like to come at the White House. Black widow had another special look. Not much is different. We do see more taskmaster. His abilities to be basically a mirror to copycat the person he's fighting and learn their skills which is cool cool villain trait. I thought the special look was the talk too much about. It's not that much different than the main trailer isolated to no I. I didn't I wasn't able to tell what was knew what was different. That's a fair point point. Let's let's do a quick address and we'll do the back half the news here episode Brockton the Barstool store. That's right in folks Little Green Fella some my call baby Yo. We may not for copyright reasons. Yeah we we and if we did he there may be a shirt in the link below and the description below the shirt lizard the shirt lizard the wizard shirt. We need to come up with a new big dog shirt by the way it has to be organic though. That's the thing. Yeah I don't know come up with a with a third one but it's baby. Yo popping out of a breast pocket on a shirt comfort colors very nice material holds up well probably won't fade like the bar the Balloon Jerry. One you can buy another link below. There are many other things as well for the winter. It's getting cold. It's a little warm here but it's going to get called you know ring decked with snow in the northeast soon even if you're not in the cold from the Barstool sports store stored up our sports dot com but also below link below in the description. Next up we're going to talk about Bond Twenty Five Live. This is a topic for trill. I'm GonNa Tease what it is and get it right to you. Billie Irish will be singing. The song for Bond twenty-five no time no time to die. Yup Yup Senate wrong. That's fine. I read she's suing the hottest stars out right now. I think that makes sense. I expected it to be Lana del Rey or or even the the. The beehive was humming because Beyond say posted a photo of herself with a Martini glass. Yeah but she's just drinking a Martini folks uh-huh Martini. I mean you can't predict what beyonce's GonNa do. I don't know our fans haven't figured that out but I think it's fine. I I like billy I wish that is one name. AIM The thirty five year old does no because she was just unavoidable this past summer and even now And I'm sure he's fine like I you know I don't have anything bad to say about this other than the fact that it's still probably not going to be a very good song because I I don't think as a guy I just listened. We listened on on a radio show today. We did a name. That song is this movie from and I did writings on the wall. Man Not got a good song I would say the big bond songs are probably batting like under the Mendoza line The the only ones I really like AAC are The Chris Cornell one you know my name and I'm trying to find a playlist and the one Living led by. I like live and let die. All right I guess. View kill but during the or the or the Tom. Jones wants considered bond songs because those are all fire. No May I'm more thinking. Just the Gimmick of getting a big name artists to do this the title song from Kansas. Thomas thunderball under ball purifier thermals. I like Goldfinger as well. Engulfing is kind of a classic or are they better than I are. They better than I thought they were. Listen to the listening to thunderball Tom. Jones man. That guy's got pipes yes. I agree with that but no I don't think you're wrong. I think a lot of them are terrible. Didn't Shoukri do a song she did she did tomorrow never dies Kendra Arte misfire picture. A the in a hotel like not all of crossover titles Let's see well. What do they do they? I break from titles. The spy who loved me with nobody does it better. Octopussy was all time high that who see. Yeah you're right now Chris Cornell was you know my name and then Spector was writings on the wall. Everything else is a mere of the movie But then they have a another way to die. which was I mean? Now they talk about like a weird one getting Jack White on the track for the James Bond movie have to Jack White and Alicia keys both. Oh together I I liked that one day. Maybe maybe it's better as I've earned Madonna and show chromosomes I'm thinking about they mostly alternate male l.. Female not exactly but in the last thirty years. They've mostly gone male female. And if it kind of balances out on that that the trend continues to billy Irish so is the wings another fire. One can note that one of the best. That's the best one that I wanted so good in my opinion. That's to me to me Goldfinger. Man trolls rolaids are really good number. Bad though on here moon raker kind of stunk. That's her maybe maybe five hundred. Maybe there had dabbled really good batting average. Just wondering fucking Tom. Jones is twenty only two twenty three bond songs. Fuck you that. But here's the thing about batting five hundred sn not baseball. I mean yeah batting average I mean people. You think you're going to be like damn dude throwing the billy. I wish bond joint. No that's true. I think the the cool thing is that she does have very interesting. Like voice and I think Over songs are weird in different in a different way. So I think it's GonNa be good. I think the song is going to be. I'll say this okay awesome. I think this is GonNa be okay. It won't be a Banger kids playing over there. They're beat boxes at home but it'll be. Okay yeah you know what all all good things to billy salish. Is it fellow kids move yes. Don't hundred percents. One hundred percent of fellow kids move it is it is very transparently transparently a very smart. Hello kids move. The kids are going to be like James Bond you mean those DVD cases.

"Last week on the show we focused on our out liar pixies or movies that were unique to our individual top ten list this week. It's what we're calling the consensus picks though as you'll hear in a moment a little bit of a misnomer because these things can never just line up perfectly. We do want to quickly recap the the movies we talked about last week on the show Tasha. You're the big winner with five movies as outliers. You were the only one who loved these movies that much which is to say. Some of US didn't appreciate these films but we didn't appreciate him quite as much as you did. Those titles were I did not realize I was winning but I will take this win They were wild rose the drama about the Scottish woman who wants to be a country and western singer. I lost my body. The French animated drama about a severed hand. Making its way through Paris Chris. The Documentary Hail Satan about the rise of the political group the Satanic Temple. Honey boy the style of movie where he plays his own father and tells his own. The story and the nightingale a harrowing rape revenge drama from Jennifer Kent Director of the Obama Duke tied for second place. Michael and Josh Michael Will Start with you. Four titles else that were outlined four titles ashes pure swathes Uson case great gangster film one child nation a terrific documentary About a filmmaker who goes back to her home village in China to explore the consequences of the government's one child policy that affected everybody in her family and her village waves the drama Rahmah from trae Edwards Scholtz his third feature and a great streak of threes on NFL. Nobody saw nobody knows present. Perfect from school of the the art institute graduate and it's a wonderful Colli picture of about a youtube stars in China and just come into the lives we learn about through all this phone footage Josh. You're foreign. I had Clerides highlife. Joanna Hogg's the Souvenir Takeaway. TD's Joe Joe. Rabbit and Pedro Element over Spain and glory so my top ten list. Apparently very boring and predictable. I only had three outliers. Safdie brothers Uncut Gems starring. Adam Sandler. Her was my number nine choice. Alex Perry's her smell starring Elizabeth Moss one of the best performances by an actress. This year I think was my number seven choice and I had James. Gray's Astra Astra starring Brad Pitt at number six.

So the character of Howard is is Jewish and a lot of people in who in the Diamond District New Yorker or Jewish. And there's a scene at Howard's Family Seder and his his his extended family is there and I think it's perfect. That the part of the Seder that you show is the recitation of the plagues the license and the pestilence the hail blood had frogs boil slaying of the firstborn. This is God's punishment of the Egyptians who are enslaving the Jews and refusing to acknowledge God. So that's always the biggest hit at the table Kit. Everything is going wrong for the character.

The the recline after the meal is is also very important in part of the of the holiday the holiday when everybody passes out from having eaten to me but and that's when when you kind of you start to see people section off the people who you're close with and and you really are taking in the the the night in there is that moment after the kind of it was.

"And because because we when we did our research in the diamond district it was that was that was time turned into something else there because there was so much happening at once and there are so many different narratives happening at at one guy had six different deals happening at the same time. mm-hmm when you do your research there you'd be thirty minutes in the diamond. District is the equivalent of seven hours. Anywhere else it really. It felt it was exhausting to spend the days. Is there in a but exhilarating also and it was and it was also absurd and thrilling. And and you know the even though there was no crime happening there was a sense of criminality. Because you just see these handshake deals and there was a bar barrick world so everything kind of kind of was informed by that at research and by that experience you know and then just on on set the way we would kind of work as we would have this. Everybody is allowed to talk you know. The extras is in the background and a larger talk actors are allowed to step on one another you know. There's there's no marks and we don't have playback so there's there's this feeling of propulsion of just the scene happening being in reality and so then what you kind of when you come to the edit. You have these amazing moments that you've tried to capture as real you know in quotes and then we start art documentary and we take the scene from where it was born on the set and then it kind of takes on a new life and it gets shrink wrapped and we approach everything with such a sharp knife knife. The main character Howard is big basketball fan. It's like not only bets on but he he loves the sport There's a seam it's almost like funny. Funny I don't know whether it's intentional or not. In which he's it's a very high pressure situation that he's in I won't describe it because I don't want to give too much away Eh. But he's basically watching the game on TV. He's got a lot of money on it and he's Kinda like Narrating the game it's like he's a sports caster on TV and would like doing the game and And Adam Sandler it's it's you're so manic when you're doing it and I'm wondering a couple of things one one is if you improvised any of that but also if you did any of that as a kid like if you watch a game and get so caught up at like you'd be you'd be the sports caster snack. Oh man that's good. That's good I mean we. We had the games of these guys. Deliberately wouldn't show me the game so I could react for real and I was given the freedom to those great stuff written and then also give him the freedom to react and say things and And I am. I am in real life since I'm a kid. I've been very vocal watching games. I true insane person in my house us with sports and the wife and family are like. Oh no no no the Yankees have a big game today like they think about leaving the house just I have have big mood swings and and really scream at the screen sometimes and that yes. It was fun fun to be Howard but also I did connect with Howard. I'll we actually. That's that's seen is much longer in MC shot at since I actually was thinking it would be amazing on your television to have like how you have closed captioning. If you've got a Howard captioning for the game reactive it's so funny you bring up that clip because it's so you're so you're so perceptive you've onset looking things because you're going crazy oh that's a felon I go way. Nobody did get it. He did get it and then you totally. Just take all of that in that moment to tell but but he did have it that counts that counts as everybody. Yeah just so aware. It's so funny and Terry when when you bet on a game which I do bet sometimes times and I want you watched so close when you have money on a game and it means something to you. It's not only the money. It's you made this this decision in your head. You told everyone on the planet this is going to happen. So you're watching the game with such It's just a different energy and honest to God when you make a bet on something in the game starts at seven Oh five it's you start. Your body is shaking at two in the afternoon going. It's coming it's coming and so you when you get to that actual game. There is so much excitement. You can't contain it. You're screaming at each today. The funniest thing these guys said at the beginning of the movie. I'M GONNA make my I bet and you see my. I Bet I'm carrying on like a crazy man and you see the scores. There's two to nothing it's like nothing has happened yet. I'm still like Oh my God. We're in trouble now.

Let's get back to my interview with Adam. Sandler who stars in the new film uncut gems and Josh and Benny Safdie who directed acted the film and Co wrote it with Ronald Bronstein. The SAFDIE brothers also wrote and directed the film good time. Unlike most of Sandler's movie roles this is a dramatic role. He plays Howard rattener. The owner of a jewelry store in Manhattan's Diamond District. He deals and precious gems along with rolexes. That probably fell off the back of a truck. Doc He's kind of addicted to gambling on basketball and his deep in debt to a loan shark who sent his men out to collect the SAFDIE brothers have a personal connection to the story. They've written so Josh and Benny Safdie your father for a few years when you were very young worked in the diamond district. What what did he do? He was a a runner in a salesman. So runner brings jewelry From one place like a you know a wholesale dispatch to A jewelry store or a pawn shop And it started off in the five boroughs and then he He was when he would go and do these deliveries. He's charming guy And and he would end up selling more from the inventory so then they would see. He would come back with memos and slips and you'd have to go back out and then he ended up up getting this car from the business and then he would drive around the Tri State area and it was a very Very thrilling time and he. Oh you know actually when we met up with our DAD's boss ten years ago the first thing he said to us as your dad lives me. Three thousand dollars and The story behind that was that when he was really getting into it with his boss and he ended up getting engaged to a woman who worked there And he you know had the big fight with him and he was basically said I quit and the give me my car back. He's like well not until you give me my commissions and they had a stalemate and eventually so our dad ad was like you know what I'm GonNa do in a find the most expensive garage New York. I'm going to put the car in that garage and I told and he told his boss. Listen you know when you pay me my commissions. I'll tell you where the car is. So when he finally paid him he gave him the address of where the car was and it was at this expensive garage and was a three thousand dollar bill to get if the car out of the garage. So Adam Sandler was worried about playing Howard because he thought it would have.

Adam Sandler shows his serious side in the manic 'Uncut Gems'

"The new movie uncut gems arrive brives on a wave of accolades from organizations including the National Board of Review. which named Adam Sandler the year's best actor and the New York film critics circle which she gave its best director award to the filmmakers? Josh and Benny softy in the movie Sandler plays a New York jewelry dealer who becomes embroiled in various desperate schemes schemes. To get out of debt film critic. Justin Chang has this review. Adam Sandler is known for his juvenile Hollywood comedies. But if you've seen him in movies like punchdrunk punchdrunk love and the Meyer would stories. You know that he can be a superb dramatic actor when given the right material. He's found the right material. And then some in Uncut Gems uh-huh written and directed by the brothers. Josh and Benny Safdie. This is a tense and jittery throwback to CD New York crime classics such as the Gambler and bad lieutenant tenant about desperate men spiraling out of control. It's wildly entertaining. An utterly excruciating off at the same time Sandler plays an impulsive XLIV fast talking Jewish businessman named Howard Ratner who owns a jewelry store in Manhattan's Diamond District. We first meet him while. He's having a colonoscopy the the movie sly way of letting US know we're going to get uncomfortably up close and personal with the sky. It's also one of the few scenes in which the character isn't emotion. The the story unfolds over a few chaotic days in the Spring of two thousand twelve much of it takes place in his shop. Were Howard pedals. A lot of wears like stolen rolexes diamond. Diamond studded furby dolls that are almost as flashy and dubious as he is with his study earnings leather jacket and dreadful goatee but before long Howard. What is on the move? He has a sports gambling habit. That's cost him dearly and loan. Sharks have started turning up at his store to collect. But Howard isn't just addicted

Adam Sandler shows his serious side in the manic 'Uncut Gems'

"Adam sandlers back. Apparently he's playing a dramatic role. So I will. We'll read the synopsis that Cynthia so kindly added to the podcast for me. So from claimed filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie we south die comes an electrifying crime thriller. About Howard Ratner. Adam Sandler a charismatic New York City Jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score when he makes a series of high stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime. Howard must perform a precarious high wire wire act balancing business family and encroaching adversaries on all sides in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win? Sell the movie's called Uncut cut gem jeweler. Yeah and this movie is also set to release in a couple of days December thirteenth. Okay yeah and it's labeled as a surprise Christ Thriller Film Now when I first saw the trailer to this movie I actually saw at the movie theaters. Watch joker okay. So they played this film and Uncut Gems and to be honest. My initial reaction when I I saw the trailer. I wasn't impressed I was. I was confused. I was like what exactly exactly. You're okay so let's break this down. I think this film is going to be in my opinion. I think this film will be trash. ooh I think this is going to fall into the trash from genre really daily honest okay. So here's why one actor who is on the tail end of a successful career. who used to be in comedy? Who is trying a more serious role to one of the main stars is better known for her music than she is for her acting. Right which is Adina Menzel right. And and what did we learn in deep-sea. Ll Cool J.. Right T I in that movie that we talked about last week where it ended up being really awful right. So we've got two two out of like the three elements that we need. The only thing that we're missing is a director that nobody's ever heard of who is really passionate about this project also. We have a trailer that makes literally no sense. But okay so I would not have gleaned anything in that description from that tree right okay. I'm glad that you agree with me because uh when I first saw was like am I and I saw it twice right so I wanted to. I had to watch it twice. I was like am I like Nagaland by like what am I not grasp rasping because I can't understand apply just like drawers and like there's money and guns and vaults that he was a jeweler until I read the synopsis. Just now well I kind of put two and two together because I mean he was walking in a jewelry store. And then the name like uncut gems like I don't know that's just my thoughts but I don't understand like what exactly doc is his role like who is who is he hiding from running from what's going on. He's hiding in running from everybody. which is yet another reason why? I think this movie's going to end up being really bad because like in the trailer he says I'm GonNa make a bet on this over under and they're like there's no way that you win burr and he's like yeah but like like that's just part of the game and he's got this smug thing gone and like this is family friendly podcasts. I'm not gonNA reference all of the jokes in the language that there's some base level bad like race oriented jokes towards Adam Sandler in this film that they're like putting into the trailer as as if to like try to force you to think that it's trying to be this like edgy. Dark comedy but also is like a thriller and then like Adam Sandler's performance wants is just like so over the top smug than it looks gross. It feels like his acting feels like it belongs in a fake documentary right like a spoof documentary where he's playing like Borat like the character is just so outlandish and then you've got all these other dudes who are like these serious gangsters gangsters and Dina Mozelle. She's the one the woman who's playing his wife correct. I don't remember what she looks like. Actually playing somebody like definitely in the film Tom. She's playing she was she's she's playing Adam. SANDLERS girl I don't know why so out of place like the whole time time. She looked so out of place. You're just like even in her acting. It looked like she felt uncomfortable with what was happening in front of her. And he's like he's like you know I've made my decision vision. I'm leaving but I love you baby or something I don't know there's there's dialogue was weird like I don't I was just like left with a big question mark the whole time. I was watching the trailer and I'm a fan of Adam Sandler I love. I love all his comedy film. Fifty first date Zohar is just so so ridiculous. Oh it's so bad but so good so yeah I just. I don't know I was confused. I was a little disappointed because initially I was kind of excitement. Adam Sandler sound like what is he doing now and I just I completely missed the whole point of the trail or the ply and I don't get it yet. Judging by the trailer this movie is not going to be good but in the show notes you wrote something about what the critics say show that. Yeah so this was surprising saw was looking through different sides of talk credits who are who raided the movie and it surprisingly they rated this movie very high. Ninety five percent. Tomato made to- meter score on tomatoes. which that's like incredibly high for rotten tomatoes and one of the reviews from the top critic said uncut gems was my most stressful cinematic experience of twenty nineteen it was also one of the best and then another critic said Adam Sandler deserves an Oscar for his riveting performance uncut gems? He's absolutely brilliant here. So I don't know because he's all the most of the reviews. I was reading pretty pretty good highly praising the movie so so like the trailer just isn't doing justice. Not The point of the trailer. Are they try Giardi. And so it's like how you said it's so trash like you have to go see it because you're entry on what it's about well. What happens quite often with things like this right? So you've got this movie. That's about this like drama and this guy like a wolf on Wall Street is a great example right and this feels kind of like. It's trying to do it. Wolf on Wall Street did with business but with like betting or gambling dude who lives his high flying life but also trying to be this family guy and ultimately he's not gonna be able to do both so he has to make a decision and then there's all these as other influencing factors that people who are trying to get him and wolf on Wall Street it was like the International Trade Commission or the Federal Trade Commission. Yeah there was the FTC. So they're all trying to get him the whole time trying to catch him for drug possession embezzlement and fraud and all this other stuff and so but in this movie. It's it's Adam Sandler who's trying to play this system in the gambling world. And he's got all these people who are like illegitimate after him so it's like not cops or anything like that. That are going after Adam Sandler. It's like gangsters is what it seems like an bookies which does seem like these fight scenes. Were Adam Sandler. Just like he looks looks like woefully unequipped to be had. A fight with any of these people Just doesn't make any

Gotham Awards: 'Marriage Story,' 'The Farewell,' 'Uncut Gems' Lead Nominations

"Okay Amanda the Gotham awards what do you know about the Gospel awards they are New York based yes is Gotham is a stand in for New York and uh-huh well done thank you and they are an indie film awards and they always have the ceremony pretty early in the season and their speed teaches are often really vibrant and kind of make some noise that people are usually recapping them are doing videos of the acceptance speeches that's right the nominations are usually driven by journalists and critics whereas the awards themselves are usually chosen by people in the New York Film Community this year's collection of films is sure thing and I think it highlights the New York versus La Aspect of this award show I would say that this is a very good collection of films but not terribly represented of of where Oscar is going to be going this year so let's just mentioned a couple of the categories we can talk about what we see and if any of this really ultimately matters to the big race that we talk about on the show all the time so for best feature Lulu longs farewell The safdie brothers uncut gems trae rituals waves Noah Baumbach marriage story and Lawrence Ghaffari as hustlers now as a human man these are five of my favorite movies of the year you truly love to see you love to see it now Ah I think this list has been somewhat criticized for being the eight twenty four awards share and also Noah Baumbach a former eight hundred four filmmaker himself so there's a lot of lineage there but I don't necessarily I mean I think marriage story is pretty much a lock for best picture and you've got a chance to see it over the weekend so that we may be we can t some of that conversation talk about it but yes these other films I think the farewells probably the one that has been tabbed to have the best chance at best picture but do you see a world in which I guess these early awards shows do more than just you know sort of celebrate the films that we expect to not be recognized come Globes and an Oscar season or or do you think that this is just a forebear to what's coming I think this is probably people sharing their passions for the most part and doesn't shift a lot the only notable storyline in the future category for me as Hustler's being here because that means that people really are taking it seriously as a a capital f film in addition to a great kind unexpected box office hit featuring Jennifer Lopez sue and we talked about that a little bit of the time of Jennifer Lopez seems like an Oscar contender people take it seriously it seemed like the answer to that is yes in some ways yes but on the other hand Jennifer Lopez not nominated for Gotham you know just kind of fascinating what are you going to do with you ran does in the film community I don't know it is people expressing themselves yeah I mean there's a lot of very admirable choices kind of up and down we don't have to run through every single category here I think one thing I like about the Gotham is is that it does a lot of awards that I really wish the Oscars would do for example they have the Bingham Ray breakthrough director award and the nominees here are kind of interesting collection of people couple of films I haven't even seen Lord Clermont on Air am I pronouncing that correctly thank you can Jones's here we had him on the show earlier this year Joe Talbot from the last Bachman in San Francisco also on the show Olivia Wilde this year for book smart and films for burning came which is a film I haven't even seen yet which is yeah been released so that this is sort of like in the spirit of the indie spirits meets the Oscars meets the New York film critics are I tend to think of this award show and I think the award selves our health quite early at the end of this year as opposed to early next year and you'll be able to stream them live on the Internet and you'll get to see some of those acceptance speeches that talking about but it does feel a little bit of a lucky to be here kind of award Andre Holland you're nominated for high flying bird and be pretty surprised Andre Holmes nominated for best actor Best Actress Likewise Mary Kay Place for Diana Elisabeth Moss for her smell these are performances that will be on craigslist MHM maybe on your lists I haven't seen her smile yet I need to do that I will do that before the end of the year I'm saying it in public so that will actually happen and probably how do you feel about being in this moment this period of award season where we're like right at the were at the gates worth the Don excited I think you and I kind of went through a marathon in the last week and so we have seen most everything which is great there are a few outstanding films talk about and there are a few on my list that I haven't seen because they were at festivals and haven't really been screening for critics yet but we've seen a majority of things and I definitely just had a week where I just saw elise and I was like wow cinema I was very moved by a lot of films that I saw and so in that sense I feel hopeful and excited and you're like movies are great we have all the movies and then I started trying to make my Oscar predictions and started thinking about all of the politics and like reading from what Academy voters I had to say and it creeping sense of dread also and anger and resentment started creeping in so I would say it's a complex emotional time for me personally how are you feeling I have the same exact feeling as you and it's for that reason that we have decided at the back half of this show to make predictions make bold reckless quite likely very stupid predict predictions because as you said we've seen almost everything last week you and I got a chance to see the Irishman let me just tell you the Irishman is good. You should see the Irishman you had a chance to see marriage three yes we had a chance to see knives out which I don't think we'll be a part of the awards conversation but which was fantastic it lived up to my hopes and dreams have been screaming about it on a podcast for two months so those to receive we see something else we saw little women little women of course of course little women so all of these movies have now been put in front of us let here's here's a very short list of the movies that neither of us have seen thus more because we've done a pretty good job of doing our homework to this moment but so far we still haven't seen nineteen seventeen seventy four one film we haven't ritual Clint Eastwood's portrait of the man who was accused of the Atlanta Olympics bombing we haven't seen cats it's fine that you put this on this sliced by Mattia cats cats come in cat season is nearly upon us we haven't seen dark waters which I think is going to start screening this week we've not seen star wars episode nine the rise of Skywalker uh-huh I did read a bit of box office prognostication about episode nine today it was kind of kind of kind of grim interesting it was like this will is on track to be the lowest grossing of the sued thus far on its opening weekend maybe it's because everybody knows what's GonNa Happen I read some fan fiction or not some fan fiction no like can we just used to lead them into it yeah I read some fan fiction you know what I read some predictions based on nothing speculation is what I read about Star Wars that was essentially conviction and I got really upset about it I told you about this already we had this conversation with no let's not do that yeah but I don't know it people I it seems like people are interested in what happens I'm interested in what happens was the was it that ray is a rookie was it no it's Ray in Cairo and fuck just like the weight again pure speculation but let me go on record saying I do not want this as the really casual star wars fan who does can't remember the title of Episode Nine Not for me it's not what you want the only other movie I can think of that we haven't seen that is going to be competing this year barring maybe you're frozen to in the atom akara categories clemency which is Alfred movie that premiered at Sundance and has gotten reviews and I it was pointed out to me that there to death row movies this year with just mercy and clemency which is kind of interesting but that's only six movies between the two of US we've done a nice job hopefully we'll have a peaceful December probably not as we go through all of our takes which of these sixty think is most likely to to mess up the the narrative is we're going to break down later in the show I have on the document that I made I have one thousand nine hundred seventeen written several different times with like twenty question marks it was I just I don't know what to do with it. It is obviously a world war one epic with really athletic filmmaker gang directed by Salmon News which is Oscar Bait shot by Roger Deakins which is how you know it really is and they haven't they're releasing the behind the scenes rich of him just like running and trenches they're really leaning into we worked really hard to make us you know and it's a very showy style of directing yes their narrative is the effort yes which is an interesting thing we hear a different version of that with someone like Joaquin Phoenix and his performance in the joker we heard all about how he lost fifty pounds and he contorted his body and he I mean this physical transformation this is the full-scale movie version right of what sacrifices were made to achieve something yes and it's so funny because the the movie is not out for still another three months but I think that's really smart and the reason I have twenty question marks is because is it too late in the Oscar season to kind of really breakthrough because the people haven't seen it and the Oscars season is like a full months earlier this year and then was your so we're in a really crunched situation I think we have learned time and time again that it is harder the later you get in the season more crowded it is it's harder to get people invested in your movie you've just created a wonderful segue for our next segment let's go to stock stock down if it goes bust you can make ten to one twenty
