"You're working on this together, you're working on this as a couple, which you've done before, because you did pyro together, right? And you've done various other things together. But what's that like? My mom and dad worked together. So I'm always interested. And did that go well for them? Was that a success? It went great. Yeah, they really liked it. I didn't know they had a choice. Well, as and of course, as did ABBA, which went less successfully prepared. Romantic relationships. Yeah, it's great. I mean, yeah, we've done it before, never in this particular combination, but we did. The boys in the band 6 years ago together. And we did a lot of press around that time with people kind of going, oh, how is it going to be? It's going to be right. And we'd always just say the same thing. We do like each other. It's not a chore to be in each other's company. Actually, when you're both busy anyway, actually carving out a period of time where you know you're going to see each other every day is lovely because you're not the sort of shooting off to film or work elsewhere. Having said that comes the caveat. It was a point. It was a point a couple of weeks ago after it was after a very, very intense week. When we got to the Saturday, when it was a day off, and it was sort of like, I said, I've got to be able to shut the door because if I was directing someone else's play, I would be able to shut the door down and we need to not talk about this today. So we could actually depressurize and think about something else. But you know, that's the way it works, isn't it? I think it would only become combustible or unhealthy. If you weren't able to be that honest about it and say, we need our own space and time to do different stuff just so we come back in it fresh on Monday morning. Yeah, you've got to be. I'm saying that because today is our day off. And I don't want to talk about it. And here we are. Mark, it's also doing a few help hand gestures at the screen. What does that mean? What's that sign here? Yeah, 'cause I suppose it's about, it's about being able to be honest, isn't it? I think that's the thing. And perhaps in same sex relationships or maybe just LGBT relationships full stop. We are used to being able to be honest about what we want or try or perhaps delineating roles or having to discuss those things so that it doesn't fall to one person having to do the heavy lifting. I don't know if that resonates at all. Well, we're quite lucky in that we have very similar tastes, certainly artistically. It's unusual, if not, I don't know if it's ever happened that one of it that we go and see a play or a film or something together and one of us walks out going on that was amazing. The other one I hated it. So I think because we trust each other's judgment artistically, if Mark comes and says, I'm not sure this moment's working or this line isn't landing or we need to do something different. I go, yeah, of course. And even down to like just having discussions about fine tuning front of house music, which is what people listen to when they come and sit down. So no, I think that will just having that level of confidence in each other's judgment is helpful. If you doubted that, well, I wouldn't have asked him to direct the blade. After 24 years, you do develop a kind of 6th sense. And it's a cliche to say, but you do sort of finish each other's sentences. You can finish that one information. Et cetera. But we'll often be watching something or something happening. And we'll just catch each other's eye and it's like a little notation. Yes, yes, I saw that. Don't worry. Don't hate us. I was going to say, I've lost my thread now. Lost my thread. It's gone. It's interesting listening to you because while you find your thread, I'll select off my marriage. So me and my husband do we are very symbiotic and there's lots of things. We're very aligned on. But we did not have the same set as a few but we have a mutual sense of humor, which we make each other laugh a lot. But he doesn't find huge sections of things funny that I find funny. And we have really different taste in films and stuff. And television. We can not watch the same TV unless we occasionally will align on certain things, map and Lucia being one of the things that we both adore actually. Yeah, and it's very interesting that you say that, you know, you're very, very light, neither is right. If you know what I mean. But it always makes me laugh because I'm always like, how do we get on so well, and we just absolutely have such different sense of humor. But I suppose people that the pattern isn't disabled. Some people totally compliment each other like pieces of a puzzle locking together, but their differences are what make them align. Other people have much more similar characteristics, and that's what makes them come together. So I think for me, the thing you put your finger on there is having a laugh. I think foster was onto something with only connect, but the brackets should be only connect with a laugh. Because that's what it's, that's the fundamental thing to me. It really is. Those sort of Burton and Taylor relationships you read about these incredible tempestuous love affairs, which are all very well to read about, but hell to live, but actually the bits you like the best, I think and when you see that people are having a good time together and you think, well, why would you not? It's really to me the fundamental of it all. It's a brilliant story weirdly about Burton and Taylor when he took her back to Wales to port Talbot. And they just went to the pub. They arrived in the Rolls Royce, and it was like a royal visit. And he just took her to the pub, and she apparently had the best night of her life. He would just literally give her a 5 and see. Go ahead and get her a couple of and she just went the barn. For one night, she allowed herself to be just a woman in a Welsh pub, but the next day she probably wanted to fly back to Hollywood. That's amazing though, isn't it? I'm gonna pause this all there. I'm gonna say it's time for a break, head to the feed. So you can listen to part two of this wonderful jet.

I mean, there's just so much Netflix you can watch. Yes. And at the beginning, at the end of the day, you still have to connect with human beings where wired to be social animals. We have to connect. I mean, if one thing that COVID taught me is how much, 'cause I'm an introvert. So everything shut down, everybody worked from home stayed home, blah blah blah.

I want to shake hands when I see my name. I'd like to actually see your smile. I used to joke to my wife. I said, I put my mask on and I'm standing in front of me, and she goes, what are you doing? And I said, I'm trying to practice smiling with my eyes. It's funny enough. That is something. I remember going to an event during COVID and having a mask and everyone else did. And you can see kind of like, it's coming through a little bit, you know. I didn't want to get used to that. Trust me.

"There's been talk of a third one with Uma Thurman Uma Thurman's daughter. Fox's daughter that survived. Who they wanted, yeah. Zendaya to play. Oh, did they? Absolutely. That's who the Fox picked for her daughter. And they never officially killed Daryl Hannah. She was just blinded in the trailer. The trailer was a fight. They gave her lips ending. You're like, dun dun dun. The end. Also, I loved it was so gross, but when they stepped on her eyeball, I think I read that they put like shrimp and stuff in there. Just squished, had to squish through her toes, had to, because we had to get that toe shot. I think it's the ultimate compliment I was telling my wife this. It's like the ultimate compliment that you could pay any artist is when you see something to read something they do. It's like it sounds like them. Oh yeah. It sounds distinctly very much a signature. Yeah. And so it's like, you can hear Tarantino, but now it's like we know it's personality and it's like, you know, I've always wanted to use that word gargantuan. I just can't use it in the sentence. That sounds like Tarantino. So this is a very much has his personality all over and if you love movies, that's a good thing. I think the best dialog piece is when she's standing up at the railing at the end of the fight and she's just like, yeah. Those of you who are lucky enough to be left alive, you can leave. But leave your limbs. Those belong to me. That's such a great line. Yeah. So awesome. And I love the camera shot like way below her. Yeah. So it makes her look giant. Gargantuan, perhaps. Yeah. There was that rumor I thought that when it first came out that it was flip flopped in Japan or Asia where it's like, at the start of the fight, like when they actually go in there, it's in black and white, but then it switched to color when the fight started. I was like, oh yeah, there's a different version of it. And I was like, Internet rumors. 2003. And I was like, but of course, how the hell am I going to see that? Anyone. So here's a question. So have you guys ever been to any wedding that was as small as what they depicted in this movie? Where it's like, you know, less than 20 people. No. Less than 20 people, that was less than ten people. Yeah. It was 9. In fact, including the organist Samuel L. Jackson, you know. Poor Tommy plumpton. Yeah. So I've never been to a wedding that small. They came through Texas. I played with them. Yeah, he was a barquette. I forget who else he was. I mean, he was a drill. Wasn't that supposed to be joules anyway? It was supposed to be jewels because he was drifting around. And now at the time, they were like, yeah, he was like, he says, Canaan Kung fu, which was David Kerry, who played him in the TV show. There you go. Tarantino's going crazy on him. He's going crazy. He's gone meta. Yeah. It tastes like pumpkin pie, but I never know because I never read a few motherfucker. So any other thoughts you guys have before we close? I love it. Fine, fine flick. I agree. This definitely, it's even more so for me now, like coming back to it..

"Made the most delicious looking trashy margarita. A lot of ice. So much ice cream. Real chunky delicious. And I love the bit where Daryl Hannah is like, she said, she goes, yeah. And she starts crunching the ice. That's a nice little touch there, you know? It's like, because she's hates him too. And so that's kind of her contempt for him. It's crunching that ice that margarita. So you killed her. Yeah, good film. Yeah, if I was ranking it, I would probably put it right there 9 ish. 9 points. Yeah, I want to go, I want to go higher, I feel. I will. Yeah, I mean, it's definitely a 9. Because it isn't one of those, especially if a Tarantino film, I mean, top two for me. It was like Pulp Fiction one, but it just depends on what I'm feeling that day. But also you know it's kind of unfair because it is too awesome films that are supposed to be one. You know, quite frankly, I kind of wish it was a four hour film. I wish it would have been that way. Yeah. I mean, I think for me, I think Pulp Fiction is a ten. And there's just, I don't know why this isn't, it just comes in second, but some of the dialog is, I mean, it makes total sense for this film. But it is kind of hokey and corny at times, but yeah. Can you differentiate it all? What it is that makes Pulp Fiction better than kill Bill? Well, I saw Pulp Fiction first and to me, it blew me away so much that it's just like any film I watch, that's what I hold it to, like that would be my because I didn't see godfather and jaws until at least in their entirety until later on. So anytime I watch a film, I'm like, okay, Pulp Fiction is the criminal creme. Everything else follows that. I don't know what it was. I never seen a movie like that before. Yeah, you definitely had a Samuel L. Jackson poster in your room. That was great. Yeah..

"If it was me doing this game, this next one is actually impossible. Okay, well this is not anything else that I think is probably not unbreakable. It's probably not glass. It's probably not Django Unchained. It's probably not Pulp Fiction. It's probably not Avengers or Star Wars. It might be in the mix. But the problem is, none of those might be on this list because he plays such a supporting role in so many movies. While you're thinking, I'll tell the listeners out there. If you really want Nick to get that point, all you have to do is reach out to us social media. I will obey the screen time rule, okay? And if he was on screen, you give me the minutes of he was on screen with hair and without hair, whichever is more, I will accept as the answer. Honestly, that sounds like bait. That sounds like bait. That's all this bullshit. It's social media engagement, Nick, we have to call to actions. What movie is Samuel L. Jackson in? What's the amount? What's the total number? $357 million. So about the same amount of money is triple X, which did not get a sequel. That was the third movie. I guess you're right. Yeah, it would have gotten more. The number of sequels doesn't matter anymore. I'm not going to get it. This is going to be like coach Carter. That's my guess. It's not bad. This guy probably made like two 15, maybe. But coach Carter's my guess. Okay, it is not coach Carter. It is the legend of Tarzan. Shoot me in the face. Shoot me in the face. The one with the guy who is brothers to the guy who's the clown? Yep. Yep, yep, yep. Nobody saw that movie. Women saw that movie. A lot of women I know some you are a sexist and you are accurate. You're damn okay, who's the cushy in that?.

"That was a great line. Yeah, that's awesome. That always tells me that stories. I haven't met him one time. I heard too. Back I'm back on my racket. And he delivered it so well. I mean, he was great in that fit of movie where it's like for red October. All those kind of movies where it's like, he's like the military government bras. Authority figure. Yeah. Who says these cool kind of haggard one liners like that? Like, you know, it was going to be the biggest battle since the battle of the jutland. And for rad October, it's like, you know, good for you, man. Travis found some sediment in the bottom of that wine. You look like bad man. Travis's lips are delightful shade of dark purple right now. He needs some water bud. He drank a little too deeply of that wine. Oh yeah, there's definitely been back there. So that's real life. Not harmful. That happens. So as we were saying, it's like basically the same with the previous movie. It's like drama claim gradually unfolds a plot. Nobody believes them. And so because the people who work for John McLean are idiots, the plot is allowed to proceed forward. So this movie does carry over, it has a different director than the first movie, which first movie was a genomic terran who later come back and direct the third movie die hard with a vengeance. This movie was directed by Rooney Harlan, who was married to Gina Davis at the time. He became a pretty famous action director in his own right. He did, I believe cliffhanger. And the long kiss goodnight with Jen and Davis and Samuel L. Jackson. This movie brings back the composer, Michael kamen from the first diehard movie who did a great job with both scores..

Rants is located right by the New York fed building. And one thing you learned very quickly is they not only have the printing press. They have their own police force that's very, very active. There too. Yeah. That's where they bury everybody else's gold. I don't know the New York fed building, so they have police officers circling it. Is that for real? Do you remember the Die Hard movie where they stole gold from New York? I don't. It had Samuel L. Jackson, but they stole it from the New York fed. Okay. Well, that seems more that seems more intense. These were just like two guys. I don't think they had some Dogecoin. Buried down there, but that was my only interaction with anybody. So where does the libertarian strain of thought with regard to fiscal and monetary matter has come from? Well, I think going back to something like studying the law, if you had been studying the law, they probably want to go home and read an Archie comic and just turn your brain off. I think if you're making silly jokes on YouTube at night, you just maybe like, the federalist papers. Yeah, you go down some rabbit hole of something like that. And it was kind of like that kind of uncovered that. And to me, that stuff seems like a big deal. You know, it's not what gets talked about.

Amazon Alexa Gets New Voices, Including Actors Melissa McCarthy and Samuel L. Jackson
"This month. Alexa is going to sound a little bit. Different on july fifteenth the tech giant rolled out an update to its digital voice assistant to include a second voice option. As you know amazon's assistant typically has like a feminine sounding voice with this update. You can change that to a more masculine voice setting this all up his quite simple. You just say the assistant's name followed by quote. Change your voice and quote but that's not all there's an additional wake word you can use in place of alexa. That new word is ziggy Basically it works the same way instead of saying the primary name of amazon's digital assistant You can say ziggy instead. If you're a fan of gigi and you've never tried to swap out the wake word and you kind of want to try it out. Anyway you have some other choices to You can use amazon. You can use echo or you can use computer And the way to do this is really simple. Just like with the change. Your voice option. You can make a query to the assistant and say change the wake word to whatever you want Another way to do this too is open up the app for the voice assistant go to the menu. Select your settings than device settings. Then you go to the device that you want to update with this new wake word and then you choose the when you want and that's it now if you don't want either of these options for voices you can actually add a little bit of celebrity flare After introducing an option awhile. Back to add actor. Samuel jackson's voice to queries amazon is much similar offerings featuring actress melissa mccarthy an nba legend shaquille. O'neal so the way it works is you kind of ask them directly as you would amazon's digital assistance. You might say hey shack. Tell me about the weather. Hey samuel Tell me about the news today.

So i'm a big baseball fan. I love the visible. And i had been unaware of this giant scandal. This should be the biggest scandal in sports rights. Sports illustrated to understand the fiasco. Baseball's twenty twenty one season which people around the game described as sullied by rampant cheating to a degree not seen since the steroid era took to understand it. All you have to do is pick up a ball and then try to put it back. Down pitchers are applying sticky stuff to the balls in. So it's so rampant. They estimate that like something. Like eighty to ninety percent of the pitches thrown. Eighty nine hundred. Eighty ninety percent of pitchers are using it in some capacity said one baseball player do enabled shirts sticky stuff on the ball. See if he can find anything that would Image search excuse me allergies. One ball made its way to and ultimate up there comma. Baseball one ball made its way into an ashley. Dugout last week players took turns touching palm to the sticky material coating and lifting the baseball adhering to their hand into the air without grouping it just a flat hand. Slipping the ball of so. What's the advantage of sticky stuff on the ball. We'll get to that in another one. Corralled in different dugout had clear in fingerprints invented in the google. That opponents could mimic teachers. The pitchers grip a third. One was sticky that when an opponent tried to pull the glue off three inches of seems came off with it. What yeah. The sticky stuff helps increase spin on pitches which in turn increase their movement. Making the more difficulty hit. Major league pitchers major league. Baseball uses nothing but brand new baseball. I mean they're rubbed up with this special stuff that takes some of the shine off of them and everything but it's not like in literally were gate beaten up and little tattered a little softened. They're all slippery. You know partly. Because i know a guy major league baseball i have plenty in the in fact i have one in the studio summer major league baseball there slippery and to get the max spin on it. You just have to get your fingers a little sticky and that's contributed to. Oh and so they can make the pitch is break. More increasing their movement makes them harder to hit. That's contributed to an offensive crisis. That seen the league-wide batting average plummet to a historically low to thirty six really. I didn't know that would really help if they gave like two years ago batting average which i don't know historically low batting average i did not know that. The sports illustrated spoke with more than two dozen people. Most of them requested anonymity to discuss cheating within their own organization from the dugout players and coaches shake their heads as they listen to pitchers deliveries. You can hear the friction of the ball spinning in the air. The recently retired pitcher a recently retired. Pitcher likens it to the sound of ripping off a band aid.

But so many of the Anheuser Busch brands did that They were in every commercial break. It felt like So they were able to earn all the buzz about something. And then the sister brands were advertising like crazy all over the broadcast, So I guess it was technically they kept the promise. I was like that was a tricky little move there. I enjoyed the Waynes world commercial for you berates. With a little cameo from Cardi B. I thought that was entertaining. I thought the lemons raining from the sky just about how awful the year 2020 was. Was pretty good. I in terms of the serious commercials to a lot of commercials went very deep, very serious because of Corona virus because of the racial stuff. One that I enjoyed that was pointed that I thought was moving was Toyota's ad. About the Paralympian, who was adopted. How she went on to extraordinary things and and The affirmation of life and you know, the mother being told she's not gonna have a perfect life. But she's gonna have an amazing life. And they've got this young woman swimming through the ad, and she Was adopted, of course, as a baby with a physical defect and is now this champion. And Toyota counting its sponsorship of the U. S Olympic team and Paralympic team. I thought that was an amazing testament to the human spirit to adoption to the value of life and it was uniting. I felt like and If I had to pick a quote unquote serious. Add that I thought Hit the market was that one That was a good one. I do. I agree. That was that was a good one. Max. You have any honorable mentions for ads? I like the Drake from State farm. I think that was pretty funny. I did chuckle at that line the first time they played the same ad later.

I've been kind of disappointed by all the Super Bowl commercials, even from the past few years because most member just like Let's see how many celebrities we could pack into this 32nd spot and hopefully people will remember them.

Eric about sex in the city. It broke a lot of taboos when it debuted in 1998, with female characters talking so openly about their sex lives. But so much has changed since then, do you think that is a wise move to bring back the show that's focused so squarely on these white, wealthy women who go around in expensive high heels. I think if it's a show about that, yeah, that it's probably a mistake, but hopefully they will have decided that there's some other story that they want to tell. You know, the original show was so much about these women who were growing into their lives. They were getting married. They were thinking about raising a family, and it ended with the lead character who was famously single. Finally. Connecting with the love of her life. So if they are able to talk about the taboo things about middle aged women that we still don't talk about now I think it could be a really compelling show. But it all depends on whether How they ride that line between reminding you of what the old show was like, but also finding a way to take it forward and talk about new topics. And they also have to explain why Samantha's not in the picture in a way that doesn't disappoint fans or anger. People who like that character, you know they've set a very high bar for themselves. It'll be interesting to see if they can clear it. Eric.

I think with Cicely Tyson, who obviously is still working today. Amazingly it in her early nineties. That is so Oh, Uh um. Which Sicily? We really see the evolution of all that. You know, Lena and Diane had fought for in terms of representation, and Sicily is able a little bit more.

Um, because you know, of all those different things we just talked about that we were navigating. But that she was able to break it all open and let that emotion and, uh and that that dignity bring that dignity to her character.

I mean, I brought in Pam Greer because I really think you know her iconic status. Of the characters that she played in the seventies. Really, Um, set the stage again for a lot of the characters that were able to be, you know, the African American women are able to be in Hollywood today. Um, Besides the fact that she was hugely popular and blaxploitation was very popular. Then you know what we called blaxploitation films. But she was a a character that in those characters, foxy brown coffee and many others, you know, she kicked butt and she didn't take, uh, didn't take things lying down. Um, she was an action hero, Quinn turned Tarantino culture. The first Um, action, you know, hear of any race again? Um, and she was also those. Those films were also political in a way. That we had. You know, we haven't seen before. In that we had African American characters that were fighting. You know the system fighting. You know the man cops Where community minded now, of course, is a huge critique of blaxploitation films. But you know it was a genre in which we were seeing ourselves on screen winning in a way that hadn't been, you know we hadn't seen before.

I mean, these women set the stage, They fought the battles. Uh, both on screen and off screen. Um, and we can really see an evolution to where we are today where we're in another moment of racial reckoning in all industries, including the entertainment industry, and what are the next step? Of the battle. Um what? Where? How can we continue to make strides in controlling our own representation? And it was so important have with women like Lena Waste who is a creator?

I love thief. I could watch Thief any day of the week. I'm a big Michael Mann. That too. I have to. I have to confess. But I also love his L a work one of my favorites of this past year. Was the trial of the Chicago seven. That was such a good movie Now. Was that ever in theaters? No, that was a Netflix produced. Well, okay. The short answer is no because it was widely released on Netflix. But it did. I believe do what a lot of films Netflix does do, and I think they were able to get a screen somewhere, so that if it was any pick up with the Oscars They can say it did have a theatrical release. It is the type of film that could maybe one day get a short theatrical relief. Um, because Netflix, you know will do that if it has to overcome any hurdles with criteria for awards submission, But honestly, this was produced to be released on Netflix. On guy thought it was an excellent pairing of Aaron Sorkin with the cast have to work with. I mean fashion. Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Mark Rylance. Why I could not be a bigger fan of I thought that this movie was maybe and again. This is Erin circuit of a bigger in circumstance. So over the many years I've tried to see his material age. You know? How does it aged with today's, uh, you know, current political climate. This was a movie that I think hit at a good time. I think this was a very well made production. I think that the cast was outstanding. And I think that if you like watching and listening there in Cirque and dialogue, it's filled with little Easter eggs that the fans are gonna love. Um, I know that at some point, it's like he needs to get some new Eastern, like, well, he puts him in there because they're Sure for the things you know, like it. Z like his language is his thing. But I found Sasha Baron Cohen on Mark Rylance, particularly to be outstanding in the incredible Sasha Baron Cohen. Wow nailed it. I'm absolutely huge favorite in that film for me was Michael Keaton. How cool was he? Yes, it is proof that an actor can take what I would what I would call a small amount of screen time because he wasn't like a main star of the film and make a massive impact and and proof that there are no small parts is small actors and Michael Keaton is more on the titan level, in my opinion when he when he gets the right We get the right material. He really brings the juice. I also wanna give a shout out to particular after that has been breaking out the last couple of years. Yeah, Yeah. Abdul Mateen, the second who was on watchman playing Dr Manhattan on HBO this last year. He's in this film. He will also be in the candy man film that will be released in 2021. This guy is outstanding. I have not seen him be bad in anything. Not that I would expect you to be bad, but I mean, he just every time I see him. I'm like, Wow, this guy's got it and and in this particular Film he was. He was quite a presence for the limited time he was given, because of course, these are all historical characters. So like if you're watching, and you know the story of the trial, the Chicago seven. He's only there for a particular short period of time. But what an impression in my opinion, one of the things you mentioned it was historical. The character of Lee whiner was totally different than what he really looked like. He looked like Abbie Hoffman's brother. He had the beard the Afro the whole nine yards. In the movie, he was clean cut. Which was, you know a bit of a stretch, and I think that was because he wasn't that big of a player. In the film on day and they didn't want to take away from Sasha Baron Cohen. I'm sure you know, I think I think they do. They kind of allow it toe visually. It's a downplay so that you know who do it just your focus to at all times, and that's one of those. Dramatic licensing issues that you'll run into. I think whether it's theatrical or cinematic. It happens all the time. Lee whiner on Ah, show Ah, great interview with him and he is such a cool guy. He is an incredible dude like a real deal, hippie and he was just so down to Earth and Oh, it was great. It was great. All right, before a couple more things about well, the year 2020 in in in film, the number one grossing star off 2020. I found was Samuel L. Jackson, who is in like four movies. He was number one, Dwayne Johnson was in number two stars making money out of movies. Right when you do for movies in the year, you're gonna make some money, right? Yeah. I don't know. You would hope you would hope? Yeah. Do you know I don't know if you saw there was a commercial with Samuel L. Jackson was for capital One who? He, You know he does commercial for him. With Santa and Santa was John Travolta. And they're talking. You know, Samuel Jackson makes a great offer from Capital one. And John Travolta says, Well, you know, that's a great offer, You know, have you are you have you been good? Have you done with the bad words? Those air? That's his question to Samuel L. Jackson. He goes, Yeah. Hit John Travolta as Santa wraps and says Ho ho. I don't think so. That was so hysterical. So I had to get I had to get that in. Um I know a big You're a big fan of this movie, which was incredible. It wasn't 2020. It came on 2019, right. Once upon a time in Hollywood. Yeah. So I am a big fan of once upon a time in Hollywood and in 2020, You know, everybody talks about how they were locked, You know, Shut in. You know, you had to find ways to escape. And what What is your form of escapism? I think became a question. Everybody in some form or another had the answer. For me. One of the pinnacles of it was two years ago have at this point. Now we're almost two years removed from it once from the time in Hollywood came out because it's you know, night 2019 was just a 2019. I was so excited for that film. I saw that film with the music box in Chicago. I saw it in 70 millimeter with a packed house full of people. It was probably my last Big cinematic experience, because I I come up to Chicago because I'm down in Peoria, but I went to Chicago for cinematic experiences all the time. Specifically at the music box. I love that fear. On For me. I feel like cinema is a great way to escape. Once upon a time in Hollywood is a big one. For me. I love the characters. I think the movie is goes on a bit of a wild ride, but I also just think it's about people at a certain point. And what Los Angeles in 1969 looks like a lot of the buildings and things that you see are still there, and they all look almost identical like the Cinerama Dome..

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.

John Singleton, Director And Janet Jackson discussed on Lori and Julia
"You know, yesterday, we knew that John singleton family was taking him off of life support. And of course, he is the director filmmaker first movie kind of his like a Cinderella story with his first success in Hollywood. And we'll let I think this use the today show audio really doesn't. His life all of those rare films both reflected and defined the times nineteen Ninety-one boys in the hood about three teenagers growing up during the drug and gang violence in south central LA, the movie critical and commercial hit giving a twenty minute standing ovation at the canned film festival. It's director John singleton who twenty four became the youngest and the first African American to be Oscar nominated for best director and best original screenplay. I think that I came along at the right time and moment in history. Singleton died Monday at fifty one his family taking him off life support. After suffering a stroke earlier this month this morning tributes pouring in for the groundbreaking director producer and screenwriter actor Samuel Jackson tweeting overnight he believes the trail for many young filmmakers rest in peace.

That was I don't know if you ever saw that you might have your first baby Justice. Yeah. It was a good movie. And like here's a lot of like so boys in the hood. Not only had basically gave Cuba Gooding junior junior ice cube put them on the map. But Angela Bassett was in that movie. Lawrence Fishman Morris, chestnut, Regina king NIA long. And he. It was such a huge huge success because he wrote the screenplay and directed it. And he was so young. And right. You know, I think Spike Lee might have been like one of his instructors at UC at film school like that he took a that's how those two cross pair. But he he has production company new deal entertainment became the training ground, basically for young black executives and an obligatory. Stop for black music stars who wanted to have an acting career. So. That's how is cube ended up there right pack, and you know, I just didn't I didn't know really that much about him to be honest. This morning to access Hollywood and one of the young men on their talked about that got Evans. Yes. Got it. He just talked about how he remembers how impactful it was the first time. He's not boys in the hood hearing, people seem both spilling. They spoke in the neighborhood and black community. Yeah. And he had black storytelling that had never been told her before cinema, Shannon late and black narratives in the nineties, and they just needed that pioneering voice because it wasn't inclusive at all, and and just everything that he did and how well loved he was by everyone, and how family oriented, and I mean, he MARTINI and a green light for three movies in five years by the age of twenty six at Columbia, which at the time the studio chief was stewed by the name of Frank price who is a political conservative, but he believes strongly in John singleton's talent and family oriented social messaging was behind him. And then down way down the road in two thousand and five for the movie, hustle and flow. John singleton was the reason why that movie got made. And of course, you know. That's how tries you Henson was first you nominated, but you know, it took a long time even after that for her to be recognized all of that. But anyway and boys in the hood was registered with the national film registry. In two thousand and two as a significant piece of art and. He was directing all kinds of TV shows. Billions more if you want. Okay, let's go that role in nineteen ninety three's.

Matthew McConaughey | Career Arc
"Is an episode about the the life in the career and the and the essence of Matthew mcconaughey, who is of course, starring in a new movie harmony, Curran's new movie the beach bum which is out in theaters right now, and we're gonna be talking about that movie quite a bit. But before we do that we're going to do what we always do on the show. This is only the second time we've done it. We're going to analyze different stages of an actor or actress or directors career, and we're gonna talk about the breakthrough moment and the personal pinnacle for each of the three of us. 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. But I'm gonna call him that occasionally Amish. Micheli? What's your relationship to McConnell, 'cause I I assume it started before Amandus? Yeah. 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

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

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.
Mega Millions jackpot swells to record $868 million
"To be unsealed today. It's going to happen from what I've heard it's going to happen this morning, probably around like the end of the show. 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. This is N G Craig's zig kitty commode. So we're in the article it says that he's part of this particular swing left grassroots movement. It's an organization he basically eat he's given to the organization, but he put himself on a list. So the organization can just Jews. Samuel Jackson doesn't care about the Jason Lewis, Angie. Craig? No. Of course. Who who who who is this person is it is Angie, Craig not crock? Right. Okay. So he has no idea. Excellent job. Sam stellar top five. And thank you too early. Bird electric for sponsoring SAM's top five we're going to be speaking with Fox News
