Star Wars the Clone Wars
"We have tim again from Rainbow, comics to talk star wars and should preface. He's not just the Star Wars Guru, but it just happened to be that. That's what we're talking about today, so thanks Tim. We're GONNA. Be Talking some clone worst all right now. No, I love I love the clone. Thanks for having me back I. Don't mind talking about star. Wars at all. I'm definitely the Star Wars Guy at the store I've got a big old tie fighter sitting on the sitting on one of the shelves, and Yeah I love Star Wars up and down left and right but i. do know other things. SO YEAH CLONE WARS! I know when we talked in the past. You're really excited before the final seat. Well I guess, maybe it's going to be the final season of clone wars, but the new one was coming out, and of course by the time you hear this, it's done so I, will let the listener know that there will be spoilers. It's been long enough. I think, and it can goes to the dark side, you guys. I didn't tell him. It's like saying the titanic. Sinks at the end of the move. It does I my dad still loves that movie and He loved the Titanic before the movie came out, but every the movie's been on TV lot lately, and he keeps watching it, and I was like you've seen the movie. I know it's real long. The boat saying. There there we segue into. That anikin goes bad. Anikin goes bad the and thanks for listening you guys. All, right. But I know you loved the series. Mainly a Soka I would say is probably your best most favorite character. You think, man. She's up there and honestly My love really lies with rebels. But I honestly believe my love for rebels wouldn't exist without clone wars, and I think that clone wars an epic. Very much stands on its own It is so grand like even rebels is like four. Seasons. Whereas clone wars we've got. what is it seven seasons and a move at two thousand eight the I? Did you watch it when it first came out or did you catch a little later? I caught the movie win. It came out on DVD. Because they released the first three episodes as a feature, and if you go on like Disney, plus and you watch season one episode one. That's not worth starts. You have to go on Disney, plus specifically I'm going to go ahead and date this podcast right now around. This is not gonNA work in ten years when Disney pluses and the thing anymore but if you go into Disney plus and go under specials. Specials they have star wars. The clone wars. It's like an eighty six minute movie or something, and that actually comes before season one episode one that was released in theaters and Samuel. Jackson is Mace Christopher Lee is count Duku and I think there might be a third like original voice. Okay? I can't remember off the top of my head, but it's interesting because with clone wars being as long as it is. Tom Cain to me is Yoda so in rebels? They bring in Frank Oz to do Yoda's voice in that in. It's really cool that they got Frank Oz. But seeing a Yoda in that style that CG style sounding not like Tom Kaine like weirdly sounded wrong, and it's the original. Yoda and I might be alone in this, but I just just to have. The the iota that I'd heard 'cause I mean. I haven't counted it, but I have to assume Tom kaine probably has more recorded lines as Yoda than than Frank. Oz does so yeah I guarantee you. He does and especially in that visual style, but that's kind of carried. I know rebels in clone wars aren't exactly the stay the same, but stylistically there's a there's a theme that goes that over rice all of them so. It was just weird rebels to hear Yoda with the original voice, but kind of wanting it to be the voice from Clone Wars I. think that's an interesting legacy in and of itself, that is if a soak is maybe not your favorite I guess, could you let us know maybe your top two favorite characters from condo and I'm sorry. Let me finish. I'm sorry. Honda. Is Is my favorite character and he carries over into rebels. And even there's even a series of kids books, and there's one that's about Hanin chewy with the foul can, and they They have to team up with with Honda I. CAn't remember the name of it off the top of my head, but the audio book is narrated by By, the guy who does voice, who's also Winnie the Pooh and lost Jim Cummings okay. So he voices Hongo in coon, wars and rebels. He does his voice at Galaxies, Edge, theme park at Disney. is Hongo and so there's a whole a whole audiobook. You can just listened to Honda. Tell you a story and it's it's like great. Honda's my absolute favorite.
Spike Lee: a new black wave of cinema
"We've spent past two weeks in a collective state of horror and anger over George Floyd's killing at the hands of Minneapolis police, officer Dirk, Shaaban, just one thousand unjustly killed by police. It's hard to look at what happened. Floyd, and not think of Radio Raheem Bill. Nuns character from do the right thing. Or countries fucked up needs to change. No American filmmaker has had the foresight or insight about that need for change quite like spike has. Some directors interpret the past some capture the present spike does both and he sees the future. Spent some time in the past few weeks. Returning to some spikes movies in anticipation of his new film to five bloods, it's a staggering body of work as wide as it as deep as warm and inviting as provocative and laden with traps ever. Spike isn't the totality of the black filmmaking experience and I don't want to suggest that, but for forty years he's told stories about that experience that have been seen more widely and discussed more feverishly than anyone and they still haven't been seen enough. Of the conversations you've been having with loved ones this month about the problems that people are forced to look at more closely police brutality, systemic racism locally sanctioned violence gentrification, tribal loyalty, the failures of government, personal sacrifice versus public good hiring practices, power, art and money spike was ahead of most Americans for decades on these issues, but while the stories he tells are frequently polemical. His movies are quite nuanced. They rarely tell you exactly what to think. Instead foisting contradictions and crises, interviewers, laps and making them decide. He crafts extraordinary dilemma movies inspired by the new Orrin Westerns and social dramas that he studied at Nyu and even though he doesn't force a conclusion is movies are frequently an intelligence test over the years, critics and audiences have repeatedly shown their ass immediately upon exiting a spike movie. For person like me seeing his work at a young age me up, helped me see beyond my keyhole-size view of the world, but it's not like spike wasn't relatable. He was the Avatar of new. York Knicks FANDOM! He was a regular presence on TV and Jordan commercials. He was directing music videos and frequently according controversy in the movie world he consistently challenged fans and detractors to reexamine their beliefs, and he always destabilized our comfort at sixty three. He is still very much a vital filmmaker. Twenty eight teams Black Klansman was among his most honored films and marked his First Competitive Oscar win for best adapted screenplay. Spike is a hall of Famer on this show and his work accounts for some of my favorite movies ever made. This episode is dedicated to those movies and will include conversations with a couple of his key collaborators as well as a part of a conversation that was more than I had on the watchable last summer. About Lee's nineteen eighty-nine masterpiece. Do the right thing. That movie redefines the term remarkable. In it! You can see and hear the pain and conflict. We're talking about right now. Watch it again. If you haven't really later in the show, we'll have a conversation with jazz. Musician and film composer Terence Blanchard a longtime contributor of spikes. They've teamed up on fifteen films including two five bloods, and he is truly one of the great writers of music for movies. I also wanted to share a conversation I had with the film editor Barry Alexander Brown in February. Two Thousand Nineteen, after he received an Oscar nomination for his work on Black Klansman they've been together since spikes first movie. She's gotTa, have it? Like so many great filmmakers spike works with the same crew over and over again, not just Aronson Berry, but production designer when Thomas Costume. Designer Ruth Carter casting director Robby Reed, and that incredible troop you've seen over and over again in his movies Denzel Washington, of course, Johnsboro on Davis Samuel Jackson Roger One of Your Smith Arthur Nas. Kerala Delroy Lindo is Ahah whitlock junior Alleluia Debbie Masar Ruby Dee, the list goes on. Later this week will be back with a review of spikes, the five bloods, which will be available to watch on Netflix on Friday, it's the story of four black Vietnam veterans who return to the jungle for some unsettled business, its reunion of sorts of some of those actors, and for it's a kind of mission statement about missions. Lastly. We'd like to top five on this show. Spike is made more than thirty feature length films, many of which are indisputable classics to cover every style and format under the Sun. Drama Comedy Crime Films Romances Documentary Sports Movies farce satire musical. He's really done at all. I would recommend virtually every movie he's ever made, but before I share my five year a few places, you can watch his movies just in case you're trying to bone up on some of the ones you've missed. Overlook along the way.

"samuel jackson" Discussed on Lights Camera Barstool
"This is all you can check. Yeah. My only complaint about this is that this makes me think that they're going to show master chiefs face in not use Steve Downes voice, which I don't like at all. 'cause that's one of those things like one of the super iconic of voices for characteristic. You really can't mess with that. I don't think without fans getting super pissed. I'm not saying I would be super pissed. I just be like a whatever thing. But I think most people that would wanna watch a halo series. They're gonna be mad about that other than that. It's just it's whatever I mean master chiefs supposed to be like seven foot five, I think publish drivers like six foot four supposed to be three hundred pounds. Like, you need to really hit that home. I think despite how tremendously huge these dudes are already thinking fits that profile. He's big dude, very musk. But I don't know. I just don't know. That's that's how I feel about it. When when watchmen came out, I had a friend who said that the guy the Rochat guys played by the guy who voices master chief. That's Jackie Jackie O. Haley, not the voice of master chief, not even close famous master chief guy Gortana. I don't know how to feel about this. This is something that I was excited for years ago. Samuel Jackson was going to be in the master chief movie back in two thousand five this rumored to finally be a halo movie. I dunno. I daren't. They're good halo fan movies online too. There's like decent ones. I think the big thing again. It's just like I don't think you should show his face like part of the whole we're of the character.

And then we'll talk about the big movie that's out right now. So guys before we get started. I wanna talk. A little bit about just your personal connection to Matthew mcconaughey who has been in our lives for a long time perhaps longer than I even realized when I was looking at this guy's career. Amanda, what is your your general relationship to Makaay? Well, like his career goes in phases. And we're gonna talk a lot about I actually don't know how much we'll talk about the two thousands. But you talk about it, Matthew mccown. Hey starred he was a rom com. Idle in the two thousands, and that's a very interesting time in romantic comedies and say not so interesting workwise, but in terms of career arc very interesting time in Matthew mcconnahey career. And that's kind of how I was introduced to him or how he became a part of my life about that. And you about Matthew mcconaughey, but I was very conversant in those romantic comedies. And then I was a culture blogger to during the Kanazawa. So. It's in terms of watching an actor or a public figure reinvent themselves and have a kind of public narrative that we're all participating in real time. He's a really prime example for me. I can't really think of him without thinking of just this not even transformation, but a return to self that he experienced would you say the time as a flat circle, Amanda. Oh my God. Yeah. I would have to at this point. 'cause you all do so often, rob. What about you? I suspect that your your true relationship with with Matt Mack, which is something no in calls him.

I mean, it started very simply as like I just want to listen to this person say word rest of my life. I mean, I do think he has this my favorite voice like in Hollywood, and possibly, you know, the larger celebrity sphere. I mean, I'm pretty sure my introduction him like most people my age, our age was dazed and confused and just every word that came out of his mouth just sounded beautiful for lack of any other way to put it I think following his career subsequently. I I wanted to ask you guys like the McConnell San's that term sort of implies like a really deep valley in the middle of his career. Like, Matthew mcconnahey is sort of a guy when I started following and writing about entertainment like following the arc of an actor or a celebrity in the low points in the high points like I was always kind of confused by the McConnell, and ideas, like what was he recovering from like, he doesn't really have. A Geely in that sense. Like, I don't think there's one moment. That's like a terrible moment. And it's like literally ninety seconds ago. I remembered that he was once a rested for playing Bongos today. Kid. That's the thing that happened. Right. What a like that will that wasn't the low point. But like, I was I was he's one of the first actors who I sort of perceived as having this media driven sort of rise and fall arc to him. And I could never quite figure out what caused the fall. I guess I bet you have a lot of thoughts say rob have you seen goes girlfriend pass? And or I haven't walls gold, and or forces of nature, and at you know, the back half from two thousand five to two thousand nine he's in a ladder leading man roles that are tough, and they're not gonna romantic comedies, and those are not. In any way, the essence of McConnell as we have come to understand him. And it's an interesting arc- because he basically twenty years later returns to himself. It's an it's an arc that I know flat, circle, blah, blah, blah. I get it. But it really is the Mikan science. I think more means that he. Finds his essence again as opposed to coming from some valley. It's like a a a new expression or somebody say, the, original expression. Will I think it's also about what we deem to be quality versus an meaningful artistic choices versus things that are pop or frivolous. I think particularly in that period that you're talking about Amanda, you basically two thousand five two thousand four Saharan to for the money things kinda start to go a little south there. And he's just making a lot of stuff that is moderately successful. But just not very good. And you know, when he comes back with the Lincoln lawyer and Bernie in killer Joe, and we'll talk about that period seems to turn the ship, and he starts working with filmmakers that he'd worked within the past or people who seem interesting in on the forefront of something. And so I think the McConnell San's, rob, I guess for lack of a better phrases just meant he started doing good stuff again. And I would argue towards the end of this podcast. We're actually in a phase where with the exception of the movie we're going to be talking about at the end. He's actually made. More bad stuff in the last five years than good stuff, and maybe more bad stuff than he did in that fallow, period. But nevertheless, let's go back to the very beginning. Rob you wanted to talk about about days as as sort of breakthrough. So what is it about David Waterson that that enraptured you? I mean, I feel first of all this is there is no need to overanalyze him that movie like this moment. Like he's in days and confused, really ten minutes. Maybe. You know, like just jump right? Like his delivery of the line. I get older they stay the same age. It's like this perfect mixture of like, casual and formal that's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older they stay same age. He knows the character knows how good align. It is the actor knows how good align. It is. Like, you take a little step forward. Like in that exact moment. Like, I realized that for the first time that he's wearing like salmon colored pants. Ted Nugent t-shirt. It's just this this beautiful transcendent moment that doesn't need to be belabored. But let's does this guy as a star like just right in that moment. And I the other days that I love rewatching he pulls up alongside another car like a burger joint and the two guys in the other car go off Christ immediately like they can't stand him. But the the driver of the other car a young red headed lady who I believe is Marissa Rabin easy is smitten with him. No, I got my own car. Thank listen to stick the car with now get in with us. But that's all right worry about that later. I will see their. You tell them about the new fiesta tap inning at the moon tower. There's going to be fresh kegs. And it's just I would just I would just follow this man, anywhere. And I watching it again like I feel there's a version of dazed and confused like the studio like focus groups like diluted belabored version of the movie that feels compelled to have an actual plot. And like a moral would make his character not like the villain, but like the cautionary tale at the worst case scenario like you don't wanna end up like this guy, actually like dazed is one of the things that makes it great is like it's a high school movie where at least some of the actors look like they could conceivably be in high school. And so it makes it hard to tell like how much older he's supposed to be than the rest of the people. But I I love the way that like his job is working for the city. Like he says that several times doesn't elaborate at all. But like it's kind of he's he's he's kind of lame like part of what makes Ben Affleck's CARA. Actor lame is that he shouldn't be there anymore. Like, he I think he like flunked a he got held back a few grades or something like he shouldn't be hanging out with these people anymore, and it should theoretically be the same for him. But it's not. But even at the end like when they're on a football field, and he gives the speech about like, it's about living L I V. I N like you can take that as like really profound. You can take that as kind of pathetic. Like, there's a version of the movie where like the plot is like the football player trying to decide whether to sign like the promise not to take drugs or whatever. Like that moment. Could be the football player realizing I don't actually want to end up like this person, you know. And if I agreed not fuck up like even twenty percent of the time, and I won't end up like this person. But like the actual movie can't bear to do that to McConnell. Hey, and like McConnell as performance is too. Good to even make you feel like even a little bit pathetic. Like, it's just it's a very fine line and just uncomplicated -ly beautiful thing. But like when you think about it, it's it's just. It's perfect. He's unquestionably one of our most beautiful statutory, rapists. He's just it's amazing. It's amazing how willing we are to forget that that is literally the point of that character is that he is a predator. And it's like, oh what a charming predator? You know, that is really his power like this is the first significant role that he had and it's it's one of his best roles. It's it's like communicates. A lot about the kind of actor that he is even though he's as you said, rob onscreen for so so little Amanda, what did you think of days? Yeah. I agree with you. It's just kind of an instant stardom. I was on a podcast recently talking about Pretty Woman and the power of that movie and a lot of ways it's just you're watching. Julia Roberts become a star in real time. And it's so rare to see someone in one of their first movies just like before we formed. It's kind of like, okay. You know, you are and sodas the director, and you know, how to be on screen, and like I understand the qualities that you're going. Bring to your other roles like you have just you've got star quality from the gecko. And like he clearly does like dazed and confused. It's kind of his first movie or his first big movie. But also definitely the statement for the rest of his career, or at least the successful parts of his career and people don't often figure it out that early. It's true. It's notable though that it takes a few years for him to find real stardom. You know, even though I think anybody who saw it is inconvenient came out. And it was not a huge box office hit. There's something going on with that guy who is that guy. And then he appears in significant roles, but not necessarily the lead role in angels in the outfield, which I'm sure we all know and love, Bobby Wagner. Our producer baseball fan. I'm certain he's seen it Texas chainsaw massacre of the next generation, which quite bad. He has a small role in boys on the side in which is very charming and his smaller but crucial role in Lone Star, which we've talked about on this podcast before. And then comes a time to kill now. If you're listening to the show, you probably know how much I like the John Grisham adaptations of the nineteen nineties. This was a this was a sub genre that Hollywood thrived on over the years. End of the pelican brief is one of your favorites. Pelican brief the firm is one of my favorites. I'm a big fan of the client. Rob you, and I were having a grand old time recounting some of the ridiculousness of time to kill which I had forgotten and yet still feel entertained in compelled by it's actually quite gruesome story. And if you think Waterson is a sleazebag the stuff that happens in time to kill us awful. It's it's it's essentially a courtroom drama about a man who is on trial play by Samuel Jackson and his lawyer as Matthew mcconaughey, and Matthew mcconaughey is playing essentially modern day Atticus Finch person who is like a he starts the movie out of sort of a wastrel like a slick drunk southern courtroom operator. And by the end of the movie, he transforms into this morally righteous profound. Emotionally resonant figure and this movie is really weird. I cannot believe this movie exists, and so intense, and so upsetting and also features a million famous people, Sandra Bullock is essentially McConnell as right hand woman, who's helping him with the case who understands the law significantly better than mccown as character does Samuel Jackson of courses on trial. He plays Billy Ray Cobb. Kevin Spacey is the DA who comes in from out of town and his quite evil for into Frick. Her plays. Matthew kinda his secretary Oliver Platt places legal partner, Donald Sutherland, I believe plays. His father has dropped. It's like it's not as father. But like the lawyer who gave him his start and is now a drunk sort of wasted. Right. His. Protege. His father figure who has his name is is Lucien Wilbanks sheriff some perfect Girish esque southern writing the reason that I chose this movie is his breakthrough is because it's the the first time that McConnell, hey, is in the center of the frame, the whole time the movie lives and dies by him. And because of its preposterousness, I think almost any other actor wouldn't have been able to pull it off. And of course, there's a very very famous speech at the end of this movie that we're gonna listen to right now. I wanna tell you story. Close your eyes. Tell you the story. I want you. Listen to me what you listen to yourselves. Go

"Do you need the money to Samuel Jackson need? He does like three or four movies every year. Does he need the money? Did it was it a situation and just found his lab, and he couldn't not take it was it just a. Situation out of convenience because I allow them to do something else that he really wants to do like get more kangols. Does it take away from what like I didn't care what Samuel Jackson hosted the Espy's? I thought that was fine. I'm saying does it take away from the great stuff that Samuel Jackson did like Pulp Fiction like Jackie Brown. Like, I mean, every Tarantino movies in as it certainly think of now when we think of Sam Jackson, I think of it a lot a shouldn't be thinking of it. He's in a lot of those commercials. He's yelling at a guy. Gary from the backseat. He's is that what you wanna hear? He's laughing really hard at a sort of funny thing that Charles Barkley said about a a bunch of food setup like the NCW finals, and he's going to probably come back and do a bunch of those who it's going to be you're going to see a lot of those commercials. So you say to yourself why? And I don't know the behind the scenes just like, I don't know about the behind the scenes how much. How important it was for LeBron to start things up with his media career, but he's a young guy. And if he's signs a smaller contract in Cleveland or somewhere else in the Easter in New York, or whatever you could still do all that we pitched a show to LeBron's company was LeBron there. No, that's his company is he gonna show Il maybe show up for a couple of he's got other people to run his company. He doesn't have to be in LA traipsing around the offices of his company he can fly out on a private jet. Come out. He's got ten shows on the air right now. Yep. Any coulda had those shows on the air, whether it was in Cleveland or LA, but he chooses to come to LA, and he is sitting down at the end of the bench away from his team during the team is just losing. He's completely destroyed the chemistry on the team completely. Nobody knows if they're staying or they're going. They don't care Luke Walton who was a promising coach now done they're talking about who's going to be his replacement ruined. A lot of things in the Jetstream that was LeBron going to the spot. That he wanted to get to. Yeah. Yeah. And it's not like the broad hasn't won some things. Just like Sam Jackson amazing. Sam Jackson like you won. You won with Pulp Fiction, you one with some Spike Lee movies you one with maybe you got to the finals but didn't win with Star Wars. Okay. Mazlan? Do you made it to the Donald good stuff made the finals, you didn't win just like LeBron Deuba Cleveland a bunch of years k, but as you're up against The Empire Strikes back you're up against return. The some of the other better better teams. And yet are better groups. Yeah. So look we we don't want and it's a shame. Because look we've always said we like LeBron we, and we want him to what he is is an athlete and who he is. We've all wanted him to be the best player. I wanted him to win a couple more of those championships that he almost one. But didn't I would love it. If we're sitting here right now. And he wanted to more of the ones that he didn't win that he couldn't win so shifts call five out of nine five hundred nine and you're saying. There's no question this guy. He is in the conversation with with LeBron. He's in the car with George Jordan. He's in the conversation, and he may still be in the conversation for some people going nine times and rose amazing..

"It's it's really crazy. I mean. Watching the three of them interact was just one of the most wild things I've ever seen. Yes. Same. And I think I think that's why the Oscar ratings were so high because everyone just wanted to see that. Whether I honestly wasn't sure going into the night. If Bradley was even gonna bring her if brothers even gonna bring Irena I thought there was a possibility that that she didn't call really, no. But she she behaved like a class act. She came. She looked stunning. She sat there. I mean, I agree with you is a little weird sin between. But maybe that was a production move. I dunno. And she really I thought held herself together. Really? Well, I thought so too. An and who knows there could be nothing thing going on. And she has nothing to worry about. I just I don't know some things a little interesting. That's all. And I definitely think that we are all falling into the trap of like, oh, well, she called a for engagement like I said that that fuels the fire things would not be this fueled. If she was still seriously with that guy. I'm telling you, I don't think people would run with the story as much I don't think so either. But I think it's also very very ferry Mr. and MRs Smith. If you remember when they got divorced and those rumors that circulated, and you could I said, this you the other day when I was watching services with I was like, I watched that movie and thought to myself, there's no way that they wouldn't have gotten together that and and the chemistry. I saw between them when I was watching that movie is what I see with Gaga, Bradley. It's a great point denial. It's a great point. I completely agree with you. I it is definitely undeniable. And I personally am so intrigued to see how this place is out. Can you keep writing? And I love your thoughts on this. I'm interested. We've read them all because everybody has just really interesting opinions. And I'm just very curious either Email us or urge keep giving also green book won best picture, which I was personally so excited about the only movie I've seen in the past ten years. I was ecstatic for her to watch it when my dad wanted to go, and I went with him, and I'm so happy. I did it was so so so good also Billy porter just own the show. Oh, my God for anybody. That didn't see he basically wore this like. Tux gown? I guess is a good way to put it. And he it was show stopping it. Really really was it was such a major moment for the red. Carpet was such a major moment in my opinion in like pop culture history. And really agree. He really that was a big deal and he killed it. He really did. And also, an exciting new Spike Lee won his first Oscar, he literally jumped into Savile Jackson's arms like a like a baby what I believe was the the case of Samuel Jackson, and Spike Lee is that Spike Lee gave Samuel Jackson his first movie role ever. So it was like such a crazy moment for Samuel Jackson to present Spike Lee with Oscar that's my favorite part about any of these award shows. It's watching the the intricacies in the way that different stars like that interact. Yeah. Oh my God. I love it. Love it. Love it. Love. It. Also Rami Malik falling off stage. I'm not sure what happened. I'm really I'm really not sure really I looked and I tried to find online like. Exactly what I don't know. If you fell off the stage.

I was like boy, I'm telling you the craziest thing in the world could have happened, and nobody would give a shit because everybody just wanted to see if lady Gaga, and Bradley we're gonna like fuck onstage.

Knicks Snap 18-Game Home Losing Streak with Win over Spurs to Avoid NBA History
"Guys. We have a guest here obviously on the shell Pennzoil performance line. And it is oh guy. Our guy Bagley get your bag. Ian, how're you doing? In. My three favorites out there tonight. I'm very excited. Yes. ESPN New York. Knicks reporter also does the nets and basically holds the upper east coast down in did you know that the Knicks made the Oscars they pretty much won an Oscar did you notice this? Yeah. We got wind of it on social media after the game. And we asked a couple of players about if they hadn't seen a year for too excited to just see the clip Samuel Jackson, and Spike Lee. Not every not every year that the Knicks could have mentioned on the Oscars deserves rightfully so. Because the Knicks would at home first time that happened since December one twenty eight and I'm talking about last year folks, twenty we're everywhere. Number one two thousand eighteen they won. They beat the Spurs one thirty one eighteen and I even saw the icing on the cake who threw off the backboard pass for the dunk like it was just wild. How important Dennis Smith? Well, of course, it makes sense. Usually he's on the other end of the dunk rape. How does this when in Madison Square Garden me? What was the field? Was it like a sign of relief for coach physio it felt like a weight off everybody's shoulders, you know, coach FitzGerald would tell us that they don't think about it. They don't talk about it. But then the players afterward joking around the locker room, it just felt like a much later lock home. Now, they knew about they were one loss away from Batasuna longest losing streak ninety history set in ninety three ninety four by the Dallas Mavericks. They know that they have the longest losing streak in franchise history. This so they're aware of those numbers. They don't want to be a part of that history. Tonight, especially the team like the city until you're Spurs. It's not easy, especially for this. And we've got a twenty two games left would throw out the record. We know where we know where we are twelve hundred forty eight what should be the goals over the next six weeks here with this team wanna see consistency. I think so Kevin Knox. You'd wanna see what Frank ntilikina as you're still trying to answer that question. You know, one one and a half almost two seasons. Enter France career, he should get healthy at some points to from this point. I think it was the next to kiss him significant minutes trying to answer that question to try to see if he can be elite guard. What did he do off the ball and where he used offensively so between seven and Saint not some consistency. From those guys. I think the next like what they've seen recently from young player in literal Robinson who who's really played well, especially since the Andre Jordan has come over from Dallas Jordan has done a good job mentoring. Mitch robinson. So I think it's it's the young players on your team and being able to project them forward who is a keeper who can you pencil in for next year? And who do you think won't be around piggybacking off your point there? What's the the Knicks recruiting pitch this summer? You know, who they Bill that around is it around, you know, playing with somebody like Dennis Smith. Knox. Or like what how does that play out? Jordan because you have the two max slots. Pitches almost hey, come come here and tell us who you wanna play with right twenty nine hundred she class, we get that you wanna play with and Kevin Durant. Also simple. You want to change the narrative around. Golden State to win those titles. You come here. And you have success in New York you wanna title in New York. I mean, that's a forever thing doesn't staffers outside of Madison Square Garden and no one. We'll talk about how joined that Golden State to win your earlier title simple message. Anybody else? It's tell us who you wanna play with. We'll try to bring that guy in. That's the voice of in Begley are ESPN next report. And that's reporter upper east coast. Reporter you're listening to insiders. I'm Bobby marks Jordan Schultz ESPN radio ESPN app and Sirius XM channel eighty now. Talking about obviously, the potential free agency this summer. Those are all big question marks largely because of the trade deadline, sending Kristaps Porzingis opening up two slots, but tell me how worried were Knicks fans watching Duke UNC this past week in. Knick fans are still watching the Knicks games. I give them a lot of credit assume most expensive watching every night. So. A big sigh of relief. I think I'm this fanbase when you found out that that sign injury wasn't that serious that he's going to be okay. Because this record twelve weeks at this point. And they're just looking ahead towards the trash and like every other bottom. Feeding MBA franchise. They're looking at nine what you've seen how he can impact their roster. How much he can change the fourteen organization. So, you know, certainly everybody around here was relieved when they found that he was okay. The interesting thing so Zion and wherever the Knicks end up in the draft in the top three. They hope is could that pick then help them creed. With the woman's Francis us, I think that's something. That's that's certainly on the fan bases minded. I'm sure the front office is thinking about different permutations packages. They could put together including that twenty nine team first round pick to try to entice New Orleans Detroit. And before we let you go. What do you think Zion playing in Madison Square Garden would look like do you think it would be just the new coming up LeBron or even even bigger based on his highlights in his dunking ability. I remember the Jeremy Lin Ron and how much energy was in the building night in and night out. How much of the event every home game was your masters. I think it would be just like that. But even more so sign Williamson was here. Because you know, he getting the franchise all three player people talk about him as a prospect the same way, they talks about Davis to bring that kind of talent into this building would give this reasons for optimism something they haven't had in a long time around here in. I look forward to our shared slice of pizza. I know we've been pushing off that day for a long time. He's been the best pizza apparently in New York. But before we let you go last, but not least we have awards given out for the MBA insiders and honors of aren't Oscars. Have you been watching the Oscars tonight? Because I've been at the. Is your feed though, you saw here. A little bit here and there, okay? This has been a Mahershala Ali love fest on the show, but we actually have awards given out today on MBA insiders throughout the course of the night. I want to get your vote for the last category that we're trying to push best leading man. Are you ready for this vote pleased? The nominees are Janta Takubo of the box. PG thirteen Paul George of the thunder James harden of the rockets and Kawhi Leonard of the raptors who is your best leading man right now. I would go right now with John giving Milwaukee's records they're standing in the conference in the role that he plays on that team. I think he's most deserving of that honor at the moment all of Georgia's a close second. Given what he's done for the thunder

I generally think he deserves an Oscar nomination in split that year for his performance, and it could have been for supporting actor supporting actress because how spit personalities you guys into any one of you wouldn't have an argument with and he carries that character into this film. Now, this is setting I'm breakable universe. Bruce's characters in this film is David Domigo Samuel Jackson being allies. You're in this as well. So basically, what was happened is twenty as has happened since the events of unbreakable, Bruce, Willis character is roaming, the streets being vigilant defender who is. Breakable but water is he's kryptonite as we've known from the first film. Samuel Jackson has been in a care home sedated for a very long time dot is actually how long for and basically Samuel Jackson happens to stumble upon joins mcelroy's character who unfortunately, he's spoiled a he's a good guy. And I end up inside this K, high mold together, basically believe they're crazy. And m not chef was trying to tighter line between all day, superheroes. All if you convince someone enough would I be able to perform the extraordinary. So if you tell Bruce Willis that he is strong strong strong strong. Woody have the stripe to knock over a door. If he's life depended on it. There's an argument to say, yes, you know, you hear those stories about a mother who lifts a car over popular child. All that sort of stuff it tries to pull on those emotions not a first third of this. Film is amazing that the idea of giants mcelroy's echoes them to hold the name of his. Multiple personalities coming together against Bruce Willis carrots, if the first time brilliant spell bonding sets up a promise that there's going to be a clash and tension of two massive lightens in a way, which you had no idea it was coming, and you have no idea how it's going to conclude. The second act is with them own inside this care home. Now, the third act where I believe the film goes absolutely off the riles terrible is when it tries to set a promise of this big conflict between Samuel Jackson, James, mcelroy's character, and Bruce Willis character. And again during 'em non Shabalin trying speed a man with the twist the man who will as banks I would dead along national sport that. And tries to screw if you and as a result of that film is much worse off that furred act is terrible. Oh, that's very disappointing. Because I I saw excited about this. Because I do think I'm breakable underrated movie. So how'd you suggest I watch this first? And then forget the rest of it exists. I suggest what shit, but have high hopes split is a great film. And yeah. Yeah. I should've just stops there to be honest joins macaroni is absolutely incredible Innis. Hey, carries on that form since this film. He everyone if he's twenty characters has a moment to show, I believe, and and he switches between him so well, there's a scene where basically what he's in the nut house. They found a way of suppressing one of these personalities, basically, if he has a life flashed at him at high intensity that will make a personality subside at another person is will come now when they're trying to interview him, and actually I should give shouts out. So the Serra Poston she plays a character Nisus, basically in charge of the the care home. She's trying to find out what makes joins macaroni character tick. And there's a saying where he basically jumps from character to character. His body language changes. He go hedge for this road. Because one of his personalities is called the beast, which is basically the suit what he believes to be to superhuman elements of his character is literally a. Sting person climbs up woes eight people is the one in the trail of the one in the try and run.

Glass review – M Night Shyamalan's superheroes assemble
"The first movie we were going to talk about is glass by m night Shyamalan. This is the third movie in the kind of unpredictable and almost unnecessary trilogy of unbreakable split. And now glass nineteen years in the making nineteen. Years. I don't know you pay you pay fast loose with like in the making conversation. This was always my dear. Yeah. Very true. But this movie we get James McEvoy returning as a bunch of people, aka the hord. We get Bruce Bilas returning his David Dunn Samuel Jackson as a laser price, aka Mr. glass on your Taylor joy from split. It's Casey Kook coke says has to os Kook, I guess cook. What am I talking about? Why so weird cook? Anyway, I am I the past couple of days off, it it is it is a mess, sir. Paulsen as Dr L E staple and then a bunch of random people. So the premise of glass, and this is one of those films that I'm going to preface with if you want to see this movie avoid every single trailer because the trailers literally give everything away the only thing that trailers, the only thing that trailers do not show are, of course, his signature your pseudo twist at the end, but what you see in the trailer. Like there is. I mean, yes, there is more to the movie, but as far as the beats UCLA lot of those trailers. I mean, he's not doing the thing that we're used to seeing another movie, which is like you're moving things around in the trailer. So you don't really get rhythm problem film goes this is pretty much. This is how the film's going to go. Yeah.

It's so could and you could tell that, obviously Shamlan loves comics. And that's one of the things on the second one was touched on it a little bit too much. But in the first one there's that great scene when he's trying to buy the piece of art from Mr. glass, and he says, this is for my son, and he's like get the fuck out of my store now. Yeah. That is awesome. He slaps him down. And Sara Poulsen kind of represents that to where she's supposed to be the personify. Nation of the pretentious, intellectual who feels that comic. Book is comic books aren't art form for children? But he was so heavy handed with that stuff. Like your have to attach every piece of narrative to comic book narrative structure, we get it. I'm not you read comics as a kid like all, right? You don't have to be too in your face about it. It is kept going back and back. All you need is one or two references. Well, I'm nights not very subtle. Now, anything explain the ending somebody's fighting back against these people that just feel the need to always talk down about comic books. I mean, you see an article every day. We're Jane's gone. I remember he was the one who came out and said, I if if you think we're stupid that just come out and say that we're stupid. There's a lot of good too. I mean, I think last Samuel Jackson was great. Here's the best as soon as glass started McEvoy and Samuel Jackson. Bruce Willis was there because he was a number a couple. He's bad. I don't think he's even a good actor number. I just think Bruce Willis is not a good actor. He always looks like he woke up from a day, nap, you barely talk actually think about barely talking the movie. He doesn't do anything in any movies ever. We six cents spells his best moose Willis as just Bruce Willis. It was funny to see his son same same actor. I get sucked number. I was like, oh, you haven't gotten better as a MAC? The same. Okay, continuity. Yeah. I do like that I appreciated that effort. But it's just Robin writes like I ain't coming back to the ship. They can't really just get out of their own way, this movie can't and. I like I like I like the attempts. You know, do it's not the traditional route they take some chances. And I don't you know, hate that. I know it was funny, but a few funny parts in it. Most of it was like the mcevoy's characters still really fun to wash. He's a great actor yet. Split was really good. I still think oh breakable is my favorite puts split his tip. My cap to him. He was his gluten splits not a comic book movie at all that what's so brilliant about is har-, psychological, thriller also takes place in this universe. And that's a good point that you made. Why are they still trying to develop these characters? We got enough we got movies. Yeah. And now, I figured this one was going to be one where they all meet, you know, and they clash, and they just kept after it was maybe three calls in the movie trying to develop these characters, and what was on your Taylor joy, even doing in this helping trying you know, what you don't have that character in there.

But there's only one tier coming down her her face. Gated. But it's it's a cross between the two right because we're where it was just a weird thing typically for me. Yeah. Because we're seeing her emotes through the song. But then all we see happening is just a tiny tear. And there's this weird dream thing of like what's happening in real life. Is she balling? Uncontrollably. You know, it's interesting. I know you're I have for me Jennifer Hudson's performance in. This is interesting. I I I'm saying interesting because I thought she was singing was good. And if the character that she was going for was kind of a woman who's just really be in broken down kind of lost her spirit and life. Like, she really doesn't have a lot of fight to her like, even when she's fighting. It doesn't it doesn't feel like she's like fully in it. And she's like really just kind of like sad. And I do think that's the point it's hard because there's a part of me that one. It's so different from what she doesn't Dreamgirls that. You're like, oh, I wanna. Right. And then and then the other thing is that it's not as. It's not as captivating on screen. Right. Yeah. But but one hundred hundred percent, and and maybe it is captivating for some people for me.

So I don't think we're going to actually be able to get into it on today's show tomorrow gonna talk to Billy grant who was Doug wardlow campaign manager. And obviously, we'll we'll all have had plenty of time, including the media to see if there's anything salacious in these divorce records, and you tweeted out a couple of things yesterday in regards to this. And some of the some of the rationale that Kim Ellison was giving about not releasing these talking about exposing. It was like it was like she she didn't want to have her history with like depression exposed. But yet it saying that she exposed her history of depression. I know it seems so. I mean, you know, of course, I'm coming out this from a from a place of pretty extreme bias against he's a horrible person freely. He is you totally right. Terrible. Terrible. Attorney general desperately do not want him to win. But if your argument is that you don't want, you know, you want you want certain aspects of the divorce records to remain sealed because of your history of depression, your history of mental health issues yet, you know, you're giving a press conference talking about those issues. What's in the file that you're not already disclosing? Nobody's going after Kim Ellison here. Right. Nobody nobody who has an interest in. What's in these divorce? Records is doing it under the oh, we're going to get Kim Nelson. We're gonna we're gonna drag her through. But no has nothing to do with her. It has everything to do with Keith Ellison has everything to do with his character is everything to do with his history of having abuse allegations made against him from spouses, and and and that's that's what people are looking for. So I if I'm Kim Nelson. You know, I'm I don't worry. Nobody's coming after you my. My theory is that once it's open. This is easy in easy to make once these records are open then all of the answer. Larry comments leading up to it are going to make sense. Like once we see what's in it. We're going to go. Oh, okay. That's why she said this. Okay. That's why he said that. I think that this is they're setting the stage for whatever gets revealed. The biggest thing for me is that something is going to get revealed. We just don't know what it is yet based off of. We've got the answer before we know what the question is j Keith Ellison is clearly nervous. Yeah. Number five, a majority of Americans say that they oppose celebrities getting involved in politics. Like all the things that Democrats are doing the Americans. Don't like amazed. Incredible from the hell majority of American voters say that they oppose celebrities giving political endorsements. That's according to a new American barometer survey the poll conducted by the hill dot dot or I'm sorry by Hilda TV and the Harris ex polling company found that sixty percent of respondents said that they opposed celebrities giving political endorsements because they polarized public opinion and distract from the important issues of the day. Forty percent of respondents said that they support celebrities giving endorsements because they spread awareness and engage people to vote. The Paul also showed a partisan divide on the issue with eighty percent of Republicans polled saying that they oppose the endorsements and forty three percent of Democrats saying the same twenty percent of Republicans said they were in favor of celebrity endorsements while fifty seven percent of Democrats also said that they supported the endorsements. Well, Republicans have been skeptical of Hollywood's involvement in politics, President Trump and former President Reagan were involved in the entertainment industry before they entered politics. This Paul Kim's Russia, you know. The poll came roughly a week after museum musicians, Kanye west and Taylor swift made waves in the political arena. I think that that, you know, the the the Khania situations really interesting from a from a lot of different angles that we won't get into right now that and a lot of that we've already talked about. But the fact that that Kanye, and this was again more courtesy of Kansas Owens who tweeted this out. You know, Taylor swift was asking people do who to vote for in Konya was was doing sort of the keep an open mind. He was being the quintessential example of an individual who was actually looking for looking at both sides and for a long time has been doing that. I would agree with that. And I think the left is very fearful either on a on a subconscious on a conscious level of celebrities actually, doing what did I mean, actually being genuine and authentic Connie was being genuine and authentic. That's not to say, I don't think Taylor swift was. But the difference is Connie as saying, you know, think for yourself while Taylor saying go and vote for somebody. Nobody believes these celebrities, and that's part of the that's that's the reason why if if the majority of if. The majority of celebrities were Republicans. I have no doubt that Republicans will be doing exactly the same thing. The Democrats are doing, but that's not the case. And be that as it may. You can have your Robert Danny juniors. Your your hoax, whatever go out there. And talk about everybody. Go vote doesn't matter. What side you're on? We all know they're full of it. Yeah. We all know the day. We all notes joke. Yeah. At some point though. I would you know. There should be some conversation about, you know, the these like in-kind contributions to a political party because they really are. They really are. And and and you know, media can get dinged for that. But for some reason celebrities get an absolute pass, there's a story in the in the city pages and talking about Samuel Jackson is out there in an ad scooping. Poop for Angie, Craig.

"Similar to samuel jackson in the avengers so you had the open university inspire the movies the movies in turn made the marvel universe have to change their nick siri so now it is a uniform nick theory across the board and that experience basically the kind of omni samuel jackson because he initially in the comics he was a white person and then also i think there was like some kind of movie where david hasselhoff played nick fury and so then you gotta comic dry him looking like hasselhoff i mean right now right now like david hasselhoff is like the rogue multi verse nick fury like like right now every all the degree looked like in a universe of samuel jackson there is one david hasselhoff like and it's it's a very stupid adventure and it we'll also lead to even crazy entire storylines there's a cracked article here five absurd ways comic books have resurrected dead superheroes by diana mccallum and a couple other ones in here are specifically just to make tv or movie changes work in comics one of them we had talked about aunt harriet being the sort of resolve or a batman values issues and apparently the writers of batman comics at the time when aunt harriet was introduced they also put her in the comics and then they realized that maybe they didn't need alfred because like story wise they kind of do the same thing and so they decided l let's get rid of alfred and so they wrote a comic where elfriede rides in on a motorcycle to help batman and robin and then is crushed by boulder which we keep hiding like indiana jones stuff in this i don't know how so then alfred is is killed by a boulder and then later writers decide actually we want alfred back and so what they do is alfred is like essentially dead but somehow on his death bed and then he loves batman and robin so much like his heart wills him back to life and he won't die and so then just suddenly there's a whole nother story line just to bring alfred back again because the raiders are just like i don't know what do we do after after.
