"But Christian the weird part is I mean I'm only 47 I'm not that old I mean I'm not a spring chicken but you know I'm halfway through my life I remember just a decade or two ago Hollywood used to make fun of this stuff This was a punch line I give you an example You're a Hollywood guy Remember demolition man Wesley Snipes and Sylvester Stallone and Sandra Bullock think the running joke in that movie was that culture becomes so PC Sylvester Stallone wakes up from cryo freeze whatever decades later And he can't believe it How everybody gets harangued for saying the wrong word at the wrong time on the street Hollywood used to make fun of this stuff and now they're exactly what they were making fun of So there's no excuse to like oh my gosh we didn't know you literally wrote movies about it Yeah the lack of self awareness is something we see aggressively on the left these days but it carries over into Hollywood They don't get it They really don't get it They're thinking about a new Oscar host and I would think they might even say let's try Stephen Colbert He's a funny guy Not even realizing that half the country loads him because he's aggressively political and mean spirited So I think that's the way that there is a bubble mentality within Hollywood where back in the 90s they would understand that They had a grasp of what the culture wanted with the people wanted They're losing that rapidly and it's

"With Quiano and Sandra Bullock. Very true. The first impeachment wants an awesome It was just as much of a sham if not bigger than this one s o. I'm trying to think of a movie Bad movie with an even worse sequel. Oh, wow. That's what I tried to come up with at Hammer and Nigel. They're just kind of hit me there. Um So once going on today is that the trial starts today. And there's been hours of debate back and forth between Trump's lawyers and the prosecution and then there's gonna be this vote on constitutionality. Trying to impeach some guy's not even in office anymore, But we kind of already know how that vote is gonna go. It's a simple majority that's needed. And I think it was the Rand Paul thing a couple of weeks ago that they kind of already voted on this. And like, and the Democrats got it with the help of Republicans, 55 to 45, right, right as 55 to 50 was. I don't know. I can't do the math. I don't know. Five Republicans came over. Of course, Mitt Romney was one of them, Ben Sasse. Your traditional list. The folks who don't like Donald Trump Collins Murkowski to me. They were all part of this and for those scoring at home, this is Day one of impeachment to try to kick out a guy who's not the president. Remember what was happening last year around this time when we're going through this, do you guy? I do? Because we were going through this again. We're there. This is the phone call to Ukraine. And they're interpreting the president's words and what he really meant to say. And what do you mean by this? So they're kind of doing the same thing now on Lee differences. Last time there is this virus that was spreading like wildfire through the country. And the only thing that was the only person was doing anything about it was Donald Trump. Bad news for you. I mean, he shut down travel from China. Sit down. Travel to Europe. Hey, was called Xena phobic for it, And they were doing this. The whole impeachment trial people. There were briefings on coronavirus in the house in the Senate. And they didn't show up. There were senators and they were lawmakers did not showing up because they were getting her ducks in a row, trying to present their case for impeachment on that whole sham and that lie that took place last year. Meanwhile, Corona virus is going on so Wonder what we're missing this time around Hammer. What's coming in the country? You're not paying attention to now. Super herpes. While we're busy trying to impeach a guy that's not even the president anymore. Super herpes are making their way into the United States Look to you a little bit from President Trump's attorney, one of his attorneys, Bruce Castor. Side of the chamber. Actually think that President Trump committed a criminal offenses. Let's understand a high crime is a felony and misdemeanor is a misdemeanor. The words haven't changed that much of the time. After he's out of office. You go on arrest him. So there is no opportunity where the president United States can run rampant in January the end of his term and just go away Scot free. The Department of Justice does know what to do with such people. So far. I haven't seen any activity in that direction. And not only that. People who stormed this building. Breached it. We're not accused of conspiring with the president. That is Bruce Castor, one of President Trump's attorneys on Twitter. We are at Hammer and Nigel Decaf Raven Tweets in Ghost writer would work for a bad movie with the worst sequel Awful. Awful movie there. Nicolas Cage. Yes, He's the flaming skeleton riding a motorcycle with the leather jacket. There was a sequel with that. Oh, boy, That's a great, okay. That's a great comparison, then. Jamie Tweets in pretty much any Tyler Perry flick. They all have Sequels. So we will keep you up to date a zoo. The Senate votes on the constitutionality. Oh, God. We know what's gonna happen, and this is going to spawn into the next couple of days where it's gonna be hours upon hours of grandstanding and showboating and everything in between. Put your big boy pants on. This is going to be the rest of this week and possibly Portions of next week. Wonderful. That being said. We've talked a lot about the guy they're trying to impeach. Let's talk about the guy that's currently the president. Ladies and gentlemen, Let's check in with Wieland. Dealing Air Sniffen Kiss stealing Joe Biden e got hairy legs. If I'm elected, we're gonna cure cancer. The president has a Big dick. So Joe Biden's team. They've got together to take on the school opening crisis. There was a press conference at the White House today. White House press secretary Jen Psaki, the Orange girl. She said that the White House's goals to have 50% of the school's open By April, 30th. Could you help us understand what the White House is or what the president's definition of open schools is sharp? His goal that, he said, is to have the majority of school so more than 50%. Open by day 100 of his presidency, and that means some teaching in classrooms. So at least one day week. Hopefully it's more and obviously it is as much as it's safe and each school and local district say some teaching that you didn't use the.

"They're doing it now. There's sensitivity training classes. I talked to a woman the other day. And I was talking about something and I'm on the phone with her, and she goes well. I never knew I was a racist. I said, Oh, I didn't know you're racist, because, well, we had a sensitivity training class come in, and one of the things they said, and she she was very excited to tell me this news, she said the counselor. Whatever the person, the instructor, said, how many people here by show of hands liked the movie. Blindside and I immediately raised my hand cause I love that movie. And then she asked us to sort of explain what we liked about the movie and we're explaining what we liked about the movie. Then all of a sudden she goes. Yes. And the reason you like all those things is because your racist you see you You have a racist tendency to believe that black teenagers growing up in single parent homes with gangs and drugs and that you as the white savior, come along and save them, remove them from that environment and save them. That's a form of racism. This one was like expressing this to me like she had, like somebody had cured some tumor out of her. We're one of those evangelists set up a tent and throw down your your crutches and walk towards me and you go. Oh, my God, I'm cured. She was so excited. She goes to you. Do you like the movie like she's now almost certain going to do the same sort of exoticism on May Like good Lord is based on a true that's a true story. That's a true story. She is, but she now suddenly realizes that she's she's a racist. Maybe that's a form of re education. It's a good movie. A sounder, but who's a Sander? Sandra Bullock and a bullet? Yeah, I'll be there that know that movie is one of the worst movies ever seen in my life. What do you talking? That's what that movie is garbage. It is two hours of unwatchable garbage. Well, you are not a racist. Exactly Right. You know, that movie is structured his mother Teresa in that movie or something, Jack, What do you have such a problem with that? That that movie is so bad? And yet people is no offense to you, John Curley. But that movie is so bad that people come out and they love it because of the message that it has with it, But objectively is just is a film constructed for you to watch. That scene where they come out with the testing pamphlet, and they say, Well, his reading scores are down in his math scores are down, but his protective skills are off the charts. When was anybody tested for protective skills? Is this really awkward? Kind of writing that they just throw in there? The scene where they take his poem out of the garbage. And he says, All I see is white faces and white walls around me. And then the other woman outside of the office starts tearing up because she feels the same way. That movie is like It's just pandering. I don't want anything to do only moly. How long could you see this like an hour ago? How do you have all know? Like, probably 12 years ago, but it's burned into the back of my brain so much so because now when people bring up the blind side, and they say, Oh, man, what a great movie. I feel like I'm living in an episode of the Twilight Zone where everybody else has seen this great movie and I saw it and it was just garbage. But everyone else has been brainwashed to believe that it was his great now. Whoa! Okay. Smartly. The king's birthday. Can we please come with? Can we kill? Okay? All right. I have a dream that one day you'll stop ranking on that movie. The other reason I liked it. As I interviewed Sanders Butler ascended Butler. What's a Sandra Bullock for that movie, and she flirted with me in the interview and touched my knee and I was like I could see the two of us dating and then anything I'd seen her in after that. I was considered her to be like, you know, kind of an ex girlfriend, You know, let bygones be bygones and that the story you told the woman in the race sensitivity training, chided. Bring it up. I was so shocked here. I'll give you some examples. I said just you know what? How about this? How would you answer this question for me? Just tell me Your reaction from everything you've read where you get your news? NPR great. And where else? Social media Terrific. 2020 How many unarmed black men killed by police, According to the Washington Post, you know, she says. It's what she says. 17,000 On. I went in the actual number. Something like 500 for 14. I said, uh, unarmed killed by police Black Yeah, 12,000. I said answers 14 And she says, Well, it wasn't that far off. I said no, not 14,014. But her perception right of the world. She has this fear thing or I don't know what it is out there. But she has also learned from watching blindside that She is. Racist. And I did had no idea that you were going to make fun of that movie. By the way, someone just texting. Oh, my God. I just tuned in and okay and Mother Teresa, We're in an orgy together. Oh, yeah, That was the last hour. We're in the most recent father with the reason that they try toe the reason that they try to say that the blind side is a racist movie is because they say that you have internalized your racism. This is what I got in four years of college. This is what I spent $40,000. Is that you have a bunch of professors who tell you That you have internalized your racism. Even if you're something like a bi racial individual. You are caring around this kind of this. This fog over you where you can't see the racism that's imbued in your own didna. What a terrible awful thing to tell impressionable young teenagers and young adults, but they do it for four. Years. So people wonder why these kids come out radicalized, and it's because they're told that whiteness to a certain degree is kind of like a sin. It's kind of like a disease and that then you have people who write about it that way. And like you, this woman at this talk, she's of that same mindset, And that's where people get this kind of gross. Like. Oh, what is this woman talking about? As you experience John Curley. Mm. So it's like I remember ahead, a friend who had a dog who is afraid of its own tail, and every time he would wag its tail, it would. It would be so scared they would end up like kind of running. And then would stop and you'd run up to and you're like, all.

Is Space Junk Cluttering Up The Final Frontier

"We are tackling a question from listener. Rachel. Weiss space-junk this growing population of manmade objects cluttering up Earth orbit so Does that happen? Okay I. Let's consider what satellites are made out of metal plastic glass powered by batteries or solar panels, and when they're placed in specific orbital highways, they stay there moving. So quickly that they don't fall towards the earth kind of like, you know if you had to put a boat in a body of water, you want to avoid fighting the current kind of thing that's more. But jaw who we met earlier, he says that from sputnik onwards, our satellites have been creating debris shedding spent rocket bodies pieces becoming glued satellites have been known to explode when unspent fuel is on board, and of course, they can cross flightpaths and collide with one another and whenever satellite shed pieces they. Tend to not should one but many many pieces, hundreds of thousands of pieces depending on the type of collision. These collisions rarely destroy the satellites, but they can alter their operation and send pieces jettisoning off into space affected not only by gravity, but other physical forces. So we're pressure thermal radiation charged particle, environment interactions with you know magnetic fields, and all of this makes it very difficult to predict what space junk will do next the little that falls back to Earth, which is one object that day on average burns up or falls into the ocean. So space junk is probably not going to land on your head. Have you calculated that probability because you're GONNA ask me this question I haven't. But there's a scientist mark. Matinee, at NASA orbital debris program who has it's one in several trillion honestly I still like it but okay Mattie the people you should worry about more astronauts right? The International Space Station actually has a tracker to monitor for collision risk and they will maneuver out of the way when the risk is too great. Wow. But I feel like if there was a major collision, I would hurt about it, right? Yeah. There hasn't been a major collision you know the US military NASA and other agencies and groups around the world they tracked debris and Warren of potential collisions but there's been a few scares in recent decades. So in two thousand, fifteen, for example, the crew. On. The International Space Station had to hide in their Sawyer's capsules. Basically, the stations lifeboat when debris from an old Russian weather satellite came dangerously close. I don't like that no spacecraft and satellites will routinely maneuver out of harm's way but only if they have ample warning so the whole spacefaring community was pretty rattled when in two, thousand, seven, the Chinese military destroyed one of their own weather satellites they were testing out anti-satellite. Technology. Brian Weeden, remembers tracking this big explosion for the US air. Force. I personally was sort of shocked. It was of like wow Brian was part of a squadron that counted the resulting debris and in the end ended up cataloging more than three thousand objects. So that one. Got turned into three thousand things and that's just the things we can track wasn't space junk a big part of the movie gravity you are remembering cracks lake. From the missile strike has caused a chain reaction hitting other satellites in creating desgris two thousand eighteen Hollywood movie begins with a chatty George Clooney and Sandra bullock servicing the Hubble space telescope gays, and contentedly back at Earth. When this huge cloud of debris from missile strike grips through communications blackout it's a bad situation happen North America's laws individual. Dramatic portrayal definitely raise the profile of space junk. Even if the portrayal wasn't very accurate I, think navy on the whole it has been a good thing for for the issue. Even, if I might grumble a little bit scientists love to grumble. That's Brian Weeden again he's now the director of program planning for the Secure World Foundation thinks a lot about sustainability in space, and he says that opening scene gravity doesn't capture the true problem over the breath catches him was portrayed as sort of a nuclear chain reaction. Right there's one event that sets off this series of things that will happen very fast. The reality is sort of the opposite where it's it's like climate change. The problem with space junk is it's a long relatively slow accumulation over decades with a big negative impact down the road. Got It. Yeah. So Brian says. The risk of space junk involves convincing people, launching satellites, governments, and companies to change their behavior. Now mindful of the future and maybe have a little inconvenience or a little more cost now to forestall bad things in the future, and that's a really difficult argument to make because we humans just aren't engineered to kind of think like that preach especially when nothing truly catastrophic has happened yet but space junk is already proving to be problematic in the short term, it's translating into real world costs a satellite. Field alerts about potential collisions. Do Do I change my satellites orbit because that costs fuel and that will shorten the lifetime your satellite, which isn't good for the commercials base economy, which is Kinda booming right now. Yeah. We did that episode all about how SPACEX IS GONNA put a bunch of satellites up there. Right you know in the long term space junk has the potential to not only collide with manned spacecraft like the International Space Station, but threatens satellites at all levels of orbit like those used for imaging and whether data collection, which then could mean our climate models are less accurate or we don't have a good way to track the mirrors and that could have negative

And this guy is should be bull Durham because he is a bulldog from what they understand he has basically made his career as out of investigating corruption starting with the Whitey Bolger all story. Well, Komi connection. Well, because comb was coming the one was he just working for the FBI.

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

'Green Book' suffers from Hollywood's Common 'Magical Negro' Problem

"I know we talked about green book Schorr did. But the Oscars are this Sunday. And this will be might win best picture Lord. No Roma please let Roma win. I think we have to talk about it. Because there's one scene that I cannot get out of my mind. Okay. Which one so it's the scene were Tony Villalonga. Who is the Italian American guy from the Bronx who's been hired to drive. Don, Shirley, this black musician, two gigs. Okay. So it's a scene where Tony saves dawn from a bunch of unruly racist at a bar. I mean, I can imagine. What bothered you about that? But why bother you? This scene is meant to teach the audience that the guys that are beating up Don are the real racists. And Tony is kind of like a milk toast racist. He's not that bad of a racist. He's only ever called Don a couple of names behind his back and kind to face and the whole movie up into this point has given you the impression that Tony doesn't like black people. But the moment the movie takes you into the scene in the bar. You understand actually these are the real racist because they're capable of physical violence against someone just because they're black and Tony he's not really a bad guy after all a little bit of needing. He needs a little bit of coaxing. But you know, what he's actually on the right side of things, and you can bring him back over to the right side to the good side of history. And it's inferior eating it's infuriating Wesley. The idea that racism is only bad if it escalates into physical violence, and that's the tiny little microaggressions things that dehumanize. Is and demoralize and stereotype aren't actually really bad types of racism after all, so maybe they get a pass. Right. It feels like a very sanitize seen about racial mix that's designed specifically to make audiences fill better about themselves, and is amazing that you're bringing this up on the weekend of the Academy Awards. Yes. These same Academy Awards in which green book is nominated for five Oscars and is likely to win two or three including picture. Yeah. And you know, it's in company with movies like star is born in the favorite and vice about Dick Cheney, and of course, black klansman and Black Panther, right? Boy, if green book does win it'll be a really good company with the best picture winners of the last thirty years specifically when it comes to films about race, right? I just think America is obsessed with this sort of racial healing fantasy where there is a work that like being near. A black person can do to rehabilitate prejudice people and all that rubbing up against yelling at friction tension touching. Hugging. Driving will bring him to the light. Right. It's its own trope. Yeah. Right. What other films in the past have done this? What are you thinking about? I don't know. I mean, if we're just staying in the in the thirty year window, something like Forrest Gump. Ninety four win best picture ninety five the story of the very simple man name. Forrest Gump mom, always said life was lack of box chocolates sits on a bench and start just talking to anybody who sits down next to him about his his life. Never know what you're going to get. He winds up befriending. This other guy named Bubba Goodall. Bubba good day. You can catch pounds. Shrimp. Shrimp is the fruit of deceit. You can vote ball broad bike it so both have the same IQ. But the point is that force is the person on the journey and a person like Bubba is another step along the way. So one of which puts them on campus when George Wallace's denouncing the integration of university of Alabama. Right. And part of that sequence when Vivian Malone was one of the new black students drops her notebook on the way inside the school, the visual effects, people make it. So that forced picks up the notebook enhance it to Vivian. And it's just weird to me. Like, you realize like that like the movies about forest, not Vivian who? I would say has a much more interesting American story to tell. I country is all about and it isn't the forest gets made a better person because of black people. But it is the forest gets to look scans or not even see a lot of the problems in this country, all of which are shoulder by Jenny who played by Robin rate who is near some Black Panthers who do nothing when she's beaten up by her white piece boyfriend, the racial politics. This movie are crazy anyway, all the politics in this movie to be fair are crazy, but they all sort of benefit for his Gump the fantasy here, of course, if you're good enough and simple enough, America's racial problems can be hailed give this movie a best picture Oscar. Okay. I mean, what else crash best picture winner a two thousand six Lord. A movie. So frightening. The Geno worth refuses to watch it facts facts, only, basically, it's one of these race and racism are driving. Everybody in Los Angeles out of their minds, the Persians the Mexicans the white people the black people, but the thing that really takes me out. His you have all of these different people of different races all being nasty to each other because of race, but guess who the redeemed characters are in this movie. Oh my God. I don't even want to know, Sandra. Bullock, of course, like the second biggest racist in the movie, she gets carjacked, by ludicrous and Lorenzo Tate. Maybe I'm Alexis really tough. My think it'd be best. If you just went upstairs random, wait for them to break in. I just had a gun pointed in my favorite lower. Your voice was my fault. Because I knew it was going to happen. But the white person's he's two black men walking towards her. And she turns and walks in the other direction. She's a racist. Right. Well, I. Got scared, and I didn't say anything attend seconds later. I had a gun in my face. Now. I am telling you you're a Migo in. There is going to sell are key to one of his homes and miss time. It'd be really fucking great. If you acted like you actually gave us shit. And then what happens? She falls down the steps on a lot of pain killers or something. And decides at her Mexican-made Maria is her new best friend. I assume area wants to go home. But you know, we don't know 'cause movies out about Maria. It's about Sandra Bullock, but the real star that movie is Matt Dillon racists cop. Matt Dillon feels up Tandy Newton at a traffic doesn't like black people, but certainly put his hands all over a black woman. So she gets into a horrible car crash cars on fire cast who comes in to save the day. Hear me permissible be your. To get an extinguisher. Good that fire. Best supporting actor nomination for that gentleman. Okay. I'll get you out not Dylan approves he's not a racist because he's capable of saving some black person's life. Even after he's violated it and then driving miss daisy. Of this sort of problem. And it wins. Best picture nineteen ninety came out in eighty nine huge hit. Yeah. Better movie than you think. Actually, because I think it understands the thing that you and I are talking about right? There is something inherently impossible about black people and white people being friends at least, according to the way, the country is set up to like have both those friends be equal in the friendship. So it is a story of this old Jewish woman. Daisy were them. Sorry. This old named daisy were than related I hope. hope Not. not. Our son bully hires Hoke Morgan Freeman to drive her. And home nowhere else.

"And turns it on its side. Can you tell us about it? Yeah. I think why why really liked it is because it's a romantic comedy. But it's also an anti romantic comedy, so wicks if you hate romantic comedies, and this Jeep it lies if that would have happened to me editing, and also if you level those movies like, you know, Bridget Jones diary friend's wedding.

I'm like, oh my God. These are the best movies ever really really got into it. And what I loved about it too. Is you know, you don't see that many plus size leads these romantic comedies? You see the Sandra Bullock, and all that and you have such confidence, and you say actually that being plus sized lead. Makes you more powerful. In hollywood. It's been an advantage for you. It's interesting say the average American woman is a size sixteen contain. Jeez. My exact size. I'm also really the exact height of the average American woman. And and seventy percent of women are considered plus size in America, which is the huge majority and yet in films less than one percent star plus sized female aid and Petit.

This is what I hear one of the requirements is that you have to go to cat school. Yes. What exactly is that is in cat school with you? Then are we going to see cat moves? Yeah. Okay. Because we are all cats in the movie, it's based on the Broadway musical. And so we have to learn how to move as cats because it's so Val real buddies in the film, and so you walk around like this slows you two older action. And you go to pretend that the easier on top of your head. You're like doing these moves and going home. And like. Niger you have to kind of sniff other people's bums some yet lie to and they put us through these food training of how to move and think like a cat.

And I went with a couple of people who don't know anything about dragging ball. And they had a great time. They were like there was a lot more yelling than I thought. There was gonna be. But it was pretty good. Yeah. I think I don't know that I don't know that I wanna see that until I've watched. Yeah. Needs up to it or whatever. Because I we're to go see it. I've lost a little bit of super going in and like. You really don't need to say like go see it after you've seen all if you want to see it. You know, that would be the time that would be the time.

"You got you got to you got to get with the culture calling. You gotta watch breadbox. It's Sandra Bullock, it's kind of past. Now, you kinda miss your window, but she's on a boat blindfolded or the boat is not the center of the movie who what is the blindfold the blindfold is important part. Yes. And why is everybody talking about it is that I mean, this is create its it's based on a book that I didn't read. But is it creative? It is creative to creative left me. I have some questions about life now about Sandra Bullock. Storyline. There's things in the story that don't add up to me. But. So you so you watch the movie and now you're confused because I watched the comedian. I wasn't confused at all he told jokes, and I laughed that that's generally the motivation their comedy side like to watch TV and have an answer. Like sports you watch it. And when you go to bed you have an answer you watch a comedian. He tells jokes you laugh you watched off and you just go to bed, and you're like, I don't know how the meaning of life. I I can't wait for game of thrones season to kick never seen it. I know I know you have lots of strong opinions about game. Thrones. I don't like escapism like there's a game of thrones is like as sources and dragons like real stuff, I'm not totally 'cause Tom Cruise hanging off the side of a mountain saving the world from nuclear disasters. Very real second. Best movie ever made mission impossible nine. I I'm not joking. When I say that if you have not seen mission impossible to last one with Tom Cruise, it that are scenes in that movie. I, and you know, he shot them. I cannot believe Tom Cruise. Now, you can't believe it. There are two scenes in that movie. He got hurt. He broke his foot on one. That's not even the scary one. There is a scene on a cliff that they couldn't affect. Faked it. You see the video Tom Cruise literally risked his his very life to fake save the world from you. Leave the stunt. He doesn't this movie. If there's a net or something new net, maybe a hairnet, but there wasn't a net. You you just have to see mission impossible nine or whatever it is..

"A firm of your worst fears. Every contact. We've had with the outside has brought us death under no circumstance. Are you allowed to take off your blindfold? This came out on net. Flicks. A few weeks back and has been such a phenomenon that Netflix broke with its normal policy of not talking about it's ratings or how many people when you have something that good. It's hard to keep it to yourself and they claim that forty five million different accounts. Downloaded a watch that film somewhere. I saw a number that said if that was a movie box office, it'll be like six or seven hundred million dollars in box office to be walking in the street with blindfolds on right concerns. An end of the world kind of scenario where an evil force takes over the world. And then if you look at it, you basically end up killing yourself or killing other people, and and the world very rapidly murders most of itself, but there are some survivors left, including Sandra Bullock, and how she navigates the world and ultimately a river with two young children is sort of the backdrop of this. Now, why are we talking about this year because all of this began? With a book by our guest. Our next guest. Josh maller, man. Who's here in Michigan? And when he's not writing books, he's in a band, the high strung some of you may know them, and he started this book from what I understand about twelve years ago. And eventually got it published, and then it got optioned, and then it turned into a movie, and now we're probably lucky to get a phone call through to him because he's probably fielding all kinds of we're gonna call. So we welcome to the program. Hi, josh. Hello. Hi, everybody. Doing. Now, I feel like I'm in a whirlwind. But one on one I'm glad that you standing how how is your world changed from about a month ago before this thing came out too. Now, like even the nights that the move out a friend or someone would ask surreal, you you went to the premier you met, Sandra. Bullock, your you're moody and even then like two and a half weeks ago. I would say like, oh, I don't know surreal is the right word. It's more like, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA. And then now now surreal is the right word. So what what changed in the last two and a half weeks? I mean, you know, as you know, it arrived here interrupted online, and, you know, necessarily, if you if you have like a book option, you can't help it sort like fantasize, right? What if they hit or wiler? What if people like it at all that kind of thing? But I don't think I can Sandra Bullock prepared for exactly what's going on here. Yeah. Yeah. This is this is an odd. I've seen that. I happen to be you know, happily in the middle. Well, good for you. And we're happy for you. Because you're from Michigan. That's what counts now in the book, which I actually started reading because I was curious I saw the movie first, and then I was jury so when and found the book, and it takes place in Michigan and Detroit originally, doesn't it? Yeah. I it. It would be sort of a nondescript almost like an impossibly northern suburb. Like, I always imagined it, you know, I was imagine if somebody like the middle of the mitten, but obviously the suburbs don't reach that far. But right, nor do nor do we have a river. Looks like the one in my in the movie, it looks like the Colorado river that they navigate down. Now, you started this of I understand correctly like in two thousand six with an idea of was it pretty much the same idea that the world has been taken over by some evil force. Yeah. I got into the I wrote the rest draft in two thousand six it was just an awesome explosion of of writing. That took me about twenty six days. Right. The restaurant. It was one of those stretches which again, I'm sure you relate to which is where it was just I never had to worry. What I was writing. Exactly it just kept coming out. I would go to bed unsure of what the next day with brings. But the next day would bring something good. And that happened. It's like a month. This is two thousand six, but you know, rough drafts are messy that that rough draft. I wouldn't I wouldn't show. I wouldn't show anybody right now. It's changed a lot in terms of the writing. But all the ideas were there. We're all everything that the movie is essentially a woman blindfolded kids mindful. They've now the getting navigating a river trying to flee an educated they're not allowed to look at that has all been there from the start. Yeah. Now, are you a horror film guy or thriller guy? Yeah. So you like this type of thing anyhow so that was in your wheelhouse in maybe it was just bubbling inside of you waiting to get out. No now that was that was already even out. Yeah. I know I've been I've been a fan of scary movies and Oliver audio them to from the most quiet. You know to the Goria I'm just I'm a huge fan of genre. In general have written a number of in that vein. And Burbach whereabouts at the time. Sound like just I don't wanna say just the next Butch. But in a sense, it was like that. I it wasn't. It wasn't your. I know it was like the fourth or fifth and had the other ones all been published. So I've got kind of a weird weird history and story with all this for I've written some twenty eight novels and the first one came out Burbach came out four years ago. So wait, wait a minute you written twenty eight and the first of the twenty eight was bird box that came out four years ago. Yeah. Where are the other twenty-seven have they all been option to Hollywood already? Few of them have a few of the have and we'll work love. And I'm trying I wish there was a way that you could release twenty you know, twenty seven novels in a day. Right. Yeah. Yeah. And and not only why am I can you know, maybe maybe you put out two year. But what about the fact that you're writing new one along the way, right? Wow. So. I'm just curious as a writer. It's a what did you do with the other twenty seven? I mean, you finish them they're done, but they weren't published. Are they did you keep them in your houses? Are they in a room? My my library of my twenty-seven unpublished books. They are in a crate about two feet away from me right now. All they all have titles. They're all finished works all the rest. Yes. Titles. Right now to a movie executive you are like the golden goose probably they didn't want to all jump into that trunk and just say show us another one. Well, a few of them have come out since birth expert box. The only book that's been published. I think I I think I'm going to me on in April that I think is like the sixth one. So that crates is getting a little bit lighter thinner, then again, you're gonna probably have a little bit of time to work on some new stuff here. Now. This is now now Josh are you as we're talking to Josh malamud is the author of bird box and is from Michigan. Where do you live in Michigan, by the way? Where are we speaking from in Ferndale in Ferndale? So he's literally you're up there. We could shout word and probably hit you. Now, you're you're you're not just a writer. You're also in a band and the band is called the high strung, and.

"It's nothing where there's nothing degree just enough where I'm going to watch it and just be disgusted. I just watch his free movie on Netflix. And I know that probably shouldn't way into how you view movie, depending the platform that it's on. But I feel like free movie comfort of your home. Getting Sandra Bullock. What can you expert? I'm not gonna complain about that. It's not perfect. But it's entertaining enough. Yeah. I liked Burbach. That's exactly how I feel you. There wasn't much that. I I mean, it's the the enemy. I liked it. That's another thing too. With me. I don't know why everybody wants everything explained. Exactly. I kinda Doug like what is it only following? Then like isn't there more going on? And I guess we won't spoil too much. Do. That's exactly what I I'm wondering. If like how come every time you open your eyes. You see it like you said just in the air like, it's everywhere. Right leaving it up to your own imagination. And makes it more scary, exactly. Because you just don't know, you know, that this thing is dangerous and that it's forcing people to kill themselves. But you don't know what it is. And to me and a lot of times when they give you the answer, it's not satisfying. It's disappointing. So and this comparison to a quiet place. No, I there's a book to per boxes better. Yeah. But I like the quiet place either. I did. But I feel like people think just because it came out of like seven months after that the people saw bird box and made this movie billing off that hype. When it's been in production for years, there's a book like it just doesn't happen overnight. And this has been in development for a while. So they're different. It's just bad timing saving mogul in jungle book where even know mobile was much worse. But it's not like they're just copying each other pulp developing and it just happened to come out. They actually had to move back because they were coming out so close, and it's similar themes. But like you said, they're two different. They have enough differences where it's a coincidence. Not they wrote sue very good. He's awesome. Do on Stewart. Green lantern. There's a rocket to do the ending is. I don't get. Why people bash these ending? It's a fitting ending this movie. Sound spoil yet. I love the ending. Yeah. We'll have you review it at some time and your name is machine gun Kelly here. But that's the thing that was pre Eminem too. So that's the last time we're ever going to see him. And then he just took the car and went away for I feel like one of the negatives outside. Because like I said it wasn't perfect. There were some silly moments. And I feel like if you didn't like the premise when you first started watching it, and like all this is fucking stupid, the whole movie, you're going to be like this is fucking stupid. And I kind of took it for what it was and I go so this is the movie and kind of justed like, oh, this is what it's going to be about I'll prepare for this. I thought the cutting back from the past to the present at times it was very two months before. But that's what that's what kept me in the movie, I feel like at times it was cutting off momentum for each other. But I feel like it got better and it helped develop certain characters as it moved on. And that's when I kind of dug it because in the beginning there in this house, and there's so many characters on needed only three or four of those catches are probably needed and Ed like seven or eight, and when it got smaller and smaller, and you got to know the characters more. That's when it got better for me from a character standpoint. After he died and not spoiling it yet. I know. So after person died, but people die this movie. Yeah. I just wanna talk about it. So I thought it was fine question. John malkovich. A bad actor. No, no, I've never seen him in a movie that I liked him in. I haven't seen much granted. But you didn't. Or did. I that. I didn't that. I did like I haven't seen a movie that I liked him in awful in the man in the iron mess. Sounds a bad movie anyway, but these left and this he was very these John Malkovich. Yeah..

That is a good idea. That would make you successful. Right. So they're investing in data. So the thing. No like, you know, that Sandra Bullock is a good. Person cast in a movie, and that people like thrillers, and that watch time goes way up over the holidays when people are you know, stuck with their families. And then they're investing in all of like, the really smart actual talent. That can then make that movie and not make it be shit. And then yeah, they've got the media team the social media team. They've got they've got the awards team. They have you know, they've got an army of really really smart good people who and a culture of like, a very driven culture. So. And so no wonder, you know, people were really rebel. Some people were really reacting against the idea that, you know, this forty five million was was somehow comparable to five hundred million box office, and obviously that's not one to one. But it's an impressive figure. It certainly speaks to the amount of people that the amount of time that that a huge people are spending on on Netflix. And I was loved to see more transparency from that flakes to really understand what qualifies a hit, and what doesn't and I know they have their own internal definitions that that defy ratings. Something that John Landgraf who runs FX has talked about every year when he sort of gives his state of television address at the television critics association and talks about Netflix who's bet and Warren his in his arena, where he as someone who does programming that has to be beholden to advertisers, and those advertisers care about ratings and balls, and then he has to make his decisions based on that he talks like sort of with envy with jealousy of Netflix not having to care about that. They just decide what works with their el-gharib them. They don't tell us. What that is, you know, and that's that's sort of been very frustrating for their competitors. But it's not slowing down their success in any way. I mean, they're just keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger. So then yeah. But on the other I will say on the other hand the note of caution is. Releasing numbers? And it could be that twelve people watched Roma. I mean, I feel like I suspect in a weird way. Probably they wanted to find a big thing that they could release, you know, to kind of give people the idea that all of these great films are being watched on their platform. Even though they might not be. We don't know. That's a great point. And we all we all have I think digested the realization that Netflix business model does not require sustained large audiences for everything they do it just requires people to not cancel the service every month, and you know, and a certain number of new people to come on board. And it is a little unclear at the end of the day. What their end game is. Right. Can they sustain this? Or are they going to have to sell to apple or to, you know, Google or something at the end of the day? Right. It's not tireless clear that this content model is sustainable, especially the way that they're spending on it. But whatever else. So you can say they have a huge audience of in total and people spend a lot of time with it. I spend a lot of time with it. I'm sure you do too of all of my, you know, streaming channels. I probably the most is on Netflix. Yeah. I mean, it's it's it's hard to avoid especially if you want to be part of this conversation, which is what they're banking on and just to give one final look back at this to compare all the hoopla and money spending advertising, everything leading up.

Releasing numbers? And it could be that twelve people watched Roma. I mean, I feel like I suspect in a weird way. Probably they wanted to find a big thing that they could release, you know, to kind of give people the idea that all of these great films are being watched on their platform. Even though they might not be. We don't know. That's a great point. And we all we all have I think digested the realization that Netflix business model does not require sustained large audiences for everything they do it just requires people to not cancel the service every month, and you know, and a certain number of new people to come on board. And it is a little unclear at the end of the day. What their end game is. Right. Can they sustain this? Or are they going to have to sell to apple or to, you know, Google or something at the end of the day? Right. It's not tireless clear that this content model is sustainable, especially the way that they're spending on it. But whatever else. So you can say they have a huge audience of in total and people spend a lot of time with it. I spend a lot of time with it. I'm sure you do too of all of my, you know, streaming channels. I probably the most is on Netflix. Yeah. I mean, it's it's it's hard to avoid especially if you want to be part of this conversation, which is what they're banking on and just to give one final look back at this to compare all the hoopla and money spending advertising, everything leading up.

"sandra bullock" Discussed on 600 WREC

"E C K. Hey, did you notice that net? Flicks is claiming forty five million people watched their Sandra Bullock movie called is it birdcage cage. Burbach sorta boxes right birdcage a different movie Nathan lane. Oh, yeah. Yeah. The birdcage was not a big movie back in the day. I think it was it's not that movie. No. That would be a really big announcement that I k by the way, forty five random million random people just watch the birdcage. For fifteen years. Yeah. No. It's a huge number seen it. I have not. It's hard really to understand what it means. I mean, first of all to self reported number and they said accounts, so you can have two or three or four or five different accounts in a household. So I don't know if that matters. But right, but I mean, there's still a lot of people if it's forty five minute counts. Also, though, you have three people watching it at the same time in one account. So it could be more than forty five million people, and they say very true, the stat is at least seventy percent of the movie was watched. So that's that's a legitimate stat for review. Right. Like, it's not like some, you know, they they rolled a minute of the trailer. And then they counted as view, huge huge. If it's true, which again, it's an internal number. So, you know, grain of salt, obviously, and they chose to release it knowing it was really good. But if it's true, it is an amazing thing, and it shows that they no longer. They don't need anybody. I mean net is just they just put their really don't the reason why they didn't even promote it. They didn't run ads for it. They just put it on their homepage. And if when you lend your landing page you saw that. Oh, wow. Send your book has a new movie only on Netflix. Let's watch it and forty seems so high to me, but forty five million people apparently decided to do that. I mean, I think this is going to happen. More and more often because net flicks is spending so much on their original content, including what would normally have been major motion picture releases is this would have been a movie that was in theaters that you'd have to go to and now it's basically well free with your subscription in your own home. It's a pretty good deal and they're getting huge stars to do this. They got Julia Roberts on one of their series. Now, they have Sandra Bullock. I mean, people are coming out of the woodwork and doing really incredible work for Netflix. And it really is one of those things that is there's no negative to it. Now. It's like the place you want to go right when Kevin Spacey took house of cards. Everyone's like, why the hell is washed up and shocking that wound up playing out a little bit that way eventually. But I mean, you know, he basically build that entire company with that series. At the beginning. Really did. And you know, it felt like why would he do that? He's going to a streaming service to do a series. It just made no sense. It's amazing to me that Netflix is what it is. When it started out as this little company, that's kind of an alternative to blockbuster video. Yeah. They'll mail me. The DVD it'll come in my mail, and it's a little more convenient. But it takes a day or two to get here. And now to this where they're doing all this original content. Amazing and one of the craziest stories of all time in the business world is that. Reed Hastings the CEO of of net flicks early on in a very tough time went to blockbuster and tried to sell it to blockbuster for like eighty million dollars. Wow. And they turned it down..

And he's just so an and he has such an ease with Ellen the two of them together are just I don't know just love it seems like he's off doing a lot of movies. He's been in a lot of movies. Yeah.

Stews shoes. And I was sweating bullets because I empathize. So deeply with people going through trauma. And I just I knew that everyone there schussed waiting for her to finish. And she was the only one who didn't know that. And then she did like five more songs and she scooped flu. New.

The Big Story

Youve seen this movie before

"How did we get to the point where remakes and sequels and all sorts of iterations on existing franchises have become such an incredible percentage of all the entertainment created because I know that they've already existed, but this is twenty-seven seventeen top worldwide grosses at the box office Star Wars, the last Jedi beauty and the beast. The fate of the furious, which is sequel number seventy eight despicable me three Jumanji. Welcome to the jungle that is a sequel Spiderman homecoming, which is either a sequel or reboot it's both depending on depending on which way you want to look at it wolf warrior to number eight guardians of the galaxy volume two shirt number nine Thor ragnarok, number ten wonder woman. Yeah, that's global. That's the top ten movies all of them, a sequel or a reboot or in some cases both. So how did it become what changed in the industry that made this the predominant model rather than just like something that Disney might do every once in a while? There's a Cup. Of arguments. The the first argument is that it is more appealing to a studio to produce an existing property. A new version or sequel to something that people already know because it's easier to sell there's less resistance on every level. It's a thing. If you already know the thing, you're more likely to be interested in the thing. The other argument is that the mid range movie has disappeared which is where you used to see many more original concepts and they're either turning on Netflix now like new films from Nicole hall of center Tamara Jenkins, or what is the mid range movie. It would have been made for somewhere between it used to be twenty to sixty million. Now, it's five to twenty. It would have been a smallish film, usually a character study or historical drama that doesn't have battle scenes is about people in rooms or people in, you know, houses having lives and doing things that don't involve capes or murder and the mid range movie even those of mutated into stuff like bird box. The netflix. Which is opposed to puck elliptic thing. With Sandra Bullock walking through a forest. Blindfolded? Arrival would have been amid range movie actually seem screenwriter. Eric Heiser arrival would have been a mid range movie. But instead, it was a massive studio words contender because of what it turned out to be. But I think when they started it out it was going to be a smaller more intimate project. So those films don't get made anymore because twenty million dollars into a movie will get you maybe sixty or eighty this is the old thinking, and so now if you make a guard Guanzhou in thing that costs a hundred and fifty million unless it tanks so spectacularly that. You know, the studio dies it'll probably pull in half a billion to a billion dollars. Right. It doesn't have to be good. But it has to be safer. Bet has to be recognizable. Exactly. So that's part of it. The hangover was a tiny little movie that then became a monster franchise because it was hit. So they made two more. Now, what am I seeing tooth? Who's maybe is a call or something? And in the olden days, they would have stopped after one. He would have just said, oh, that's really cool. This thing made three hundred million dollars for a everybody likes it. Let's go to the next contest. Do another comedy. Exactly. Let's lunch. Something else. When Bradley Cooper was here. Like six months before he was here for another original project that Jim Carey movie called yes-men, the tanked, and he said like it was insane that that Warner was giving this movie two three completely untested. Like, Bradley Cooper, never had a hit and homes and never had a hit. Nobody news at Calvin. Acas was set a couple of comedy cycles or comedy circles in journalists, and they risk that money on this little movie, which couldn't have cost that much, and it was a massive hit. And then they made two more, and they'll probably reboot it in five years with with. I would assume women because that might be interesting. There have been attempts to do a women's version of the hangover bridesmaids is great rough night. There's a few of those the idea of people behaving badly friend circles getting out of control, they'll they'll reboot the hangover in five years. They'll prob. Rebooted with women because that's a smart move because otherwise you have to. I mean, the the gender thing really helps because you create a new universe that doesn't depend on the demands of the original film, you you can bring, you know, most remakes are very very rooted in the expectations of the audience, right because we all wanna be pandered to we own to see the thing that we liked again. That's the governing principle of entertainment. Now, give me more of the thing. I like I understand exactly why the studios do it. When you lay it out that way on the economics and play why do we consume it? Why is our bar? So low nail it doesn't feel like it was always this way. Well, it probably was we just didn't know it. The the difference is that now instead of knockoffs which used to happen. You know, if there was a smoking abandoned, there'd be ten car movies the next year. If there was rocky there'd be five boxing movies, the next year or or sports movies or a wave of underdogs. Portsmouth is actually what did happen stuff like breaking away. And so on now, we just make more Rockies. Yeah. We we really have another one right now creed to is rocky eight. Away that creed was not rocky seven, which is kind of disappointing. And no one can articulate it. Exactly. But the the answer is it's because it's because creed was the only one that Silvester still didn't right. And he didn't script it. It was somebody else's project. He was used beautifully in it. But when Ryan Kugler wasn't available to come back to Crete to Stallone jumped in and wrote it, and it's a rocky movie now, and I think people should be more disappointed by that than they are. That's the crux of why we want to have this. But they're not conversation because they're not an I made fun of when you said at the beginning of this podcast that there would be another Harry Potter, and who would be cast as another Harry Potter. I will watch that Harry Potter movie or it'll probably actually be a TV show. So that they can do it. Yeah. For Justice over eight years and eight seasons, and whatever God, you could go to school with them in real time home, that's a horrible idea. I would watch. So I I agree that it's a bad idea. But I will consume that content. Why it's because you want to see your idea of what it should be validated. And in the end, we find out that it doesn't matter. If it isn't because nobody can imagine. Everybody's complaining about what a movie isn't. And what it shouldn't be. I mean, that's my job is to say actually this. But I hope that I'm coming at it from a perspective of history, and a sense of you know, why you can make this movie why this movie fails or why this movie's succeeds, and how this argument could be applied to other movies and similar genres. I basically, I I'm there to provide context for why you did or didn't like something. I guess, but as far as the reboot thing goes again, it's safer because the curiosity factor has it clipped everything else people want to know, they want to see what the new superman looks like they want to know what the new joker like Joaquin Phoenix is the joker. But Jared Lido is the joker. Well, that's what happens ledger. Yeah joke. They'll Cesar Romero is the joker or Jack Nicholson as the joker. That's the. That's the point. Right. Like my engagement with the stuff is always. Oh, that's interesting or. Yeah. I've seen that. There's like it's a binary. There's no middle ground. There is no mildly successful remake it either works or it doesn't. And it's because we know what it's supposed to look like is because we've been trained by our own lives to want. This thing the way it was supposed to want to watch new stuff. Oh god. Yes. That's all. I want. I crave it, please. Give me some. But why does so many people? Why would so many people prefer to watch a sequel to something that they already know part of it is that you don't have to invest as much. You already have the backstory you don't need to introduce new things. Or if you do you have to do it in a certain way, fix it feel comfortable Spiderman homecoming is an excellent example of that they turned it into an eighties movie. Yeah. Which makes it simultaneously nostalgic of new in a way that this character doesn't need to be. But it works. It's comforting. And you feel the the youth of the character is because he's never been a kid before Spiderman being in high school before in the movies, but he's a child and Tom Holland's performance. I mean, the the actors in his twenties, but he looks like a kid, and you can root for him that way, and it makes it feel new and by having Tony stark introduce him to the two by having Tony stark introduced into the marvel universe in civil war. It was like extending a hand to the franchise and bring it on. And the fact that I know all of this is nuts because it's a two hour movie. And I shouldn't bring all of this stuff with me to this film. But it's not a reboot. It is the what eighteenth chapter in films. That's been going on for a decade. It's part of a huge thing where we are now culturally. Right. It's not just social media and the internet, although that's a huge part of it is part of the it builds expectation, but it's also the fact that this story has been ongoing, and if you missed one you can probably catch up it's not a big deal unless you missed an adventures or captain America movie where all the characters are together you can dip in and out. But if you've been following it all along, it feels really good to know all this stuff. It feels like you're being accommodated in a way that a remake or a sequel or a franchise is supposed to do it. Doesn't bar new entry, but it rewards ongoing participation in the Harry Potter films did the same thing. I mean, they made one of those a year for eight years, right or the there. They started to stagger them apart after a while. Once it got complicated. They were releasing them every year and a half. I don't remember. But I do remember that I saw all of them. I didn't really like all of them. Did they didn't get good until the third one? And we're at a place now culturally where you can say that about a television show. Well, you have to watch the for six episodes. No, you don't you actually don't. But if you don't you'll miss it. And if everybody's talking about it, they and you want to see it. And if it's a thing that everybody talked about twenty years ago that that little tug is still there. So when fuller house comes back, which is okay. Comfort food at best. Right. It's a remake. It's a it's a new season of a show that people other show that they've brought back which is like there's a list of them. Yeah. Fuller houses. I for me. It's the best example because it's one of those things where when you hear about it. It sounds insane. Why would anyone care? And then you find out exactly how many people do care, which is why it exists, and whether they really wanna see it or just kind of curious about it that doesn't matter as long as they click on it for Netflix. The Netflix has made it worth their while. And we're going to get more of it. And we're going to get more of an and that Spurs the need to make more things come back. So there's a new charmed and there's a new. Do not on Netflix. But it's it's all part of the culture, if you can reboot a TV show, you can make millions of dollars right off the bat and the Handmaid's tale just got a built in audience through its TV show success. And now there's a book sequel Margaret Atwood is writing a Handmaid's tale sequel, which is one of the few things that I'm genuinely interested in because she won't be basing it on the TV series. That's the important part. It will it will still be set in her world. I mean, I don't need the answers to what happens in the Handmaid's tale. It's all in the first book, we know what we need to know about that book was a finished work. And you know, it is because it's been taught in schools for thirty years. Sure. It's a self contained narrative. And if there was one artist in Canada didn't need to follow the two reasons for producing sequels and remakes that you've just outlined, theoretically, it should be Margaret what she can do whatever she wants. She absolutely can. But I can also I can see the testament emerging as a response to the show, but that's me understanding the pull the remake. I would rather just think about it. Myself than have to watch it executed because the odds are won't be the thing that I wanted it to be when beauty and the beast, the stage version came to Toronto I got to go to a preview, and nobody told us that the thing was three hours long that it was a massive reconstruction of an eighty two minute movie. And when the first deviation came which is slightly longer dialogue scene between bell and her father. There was a kid. There was a child very must have been very unsettled up in the mezzanine who started saying, no, no, no, no, no. This isn't it and had to be shushed. And it's like, that's the brain. And that's everybody in these things, you really only want to see the thing you like, and you want more of it. But you don't that? I mean, the kid didn't they could be just wanna beauty, and the b you can give this opportunity this child who I mean, this would have been was after The Lion King. Right. So it was the mid to late ninety s and this childhood only been raised on this movie. That was only, you know at most ten years old, and he didn't want more wanted the same thing. And that's all of us. But we won't admit it. So we're still curious. We're kinda wanna go see what the new thing is if it's the old thing. And if it's not the old thing we want to know, how we can be comforted by whatever it is that we loved about the old thing, and it never occurs to people to just pull out the old thing and watch it again because those are everywhere, and that's that's my objection. And yet when Pete's dragon comes out, or when the Paddington movies come out, and they are beautiful perfect realizations of the spirit of the project, even though they are not the original thing than you do reconnect with the thing you loved about it. And I think it's also very telling that those are projects for children. Yeah. We're all children. Now, we want to be right. Like, isn't that the whole thing? The the lie of the the government is that you want a strong like what what's the argument? The Republicans are the strong father. And the Democrats are the are the nurturing mother, and you can only have one at a time. But we see what is strong father looks like, and it's horrible and we retreat can we want whatever

KCRW's Hollywood Breakdown

Netflix cracks a window

"KCRW sponsors include net. Flicks presenting the love me when I'm dead chronicling the last years of Orson Welles life the genius behind citizen. Kane. It's wildly entertaining while full of nuance and depth directed by Morgan Neville, only on net. Flicks. November second I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter, and Matt Finally I mean, we sort of expected this for a while but net flicks finally finally is cracking after trying to get into the awards race in a real way for a while. Now, they really want this, and they have in a very I think serious contender in quirones Roma, which is a black and white film very much in art house film. I would save as having seen it very much a film, ironically that you would wanna see on a big screen. You cannot make a movie with Cuaron if you don't bend or an artist like Koran if you don't somewhat bend to his will. So netflix. Has said they will let this movie run exclusively in theaters some theaters for awhile, it's a concession and their couple of other films in this category. But let's focus on the big one for now couple of other films in this category. They're going to allow this with it's a concession. I'm not sure that it's a really fabulous concession. Well. It is a big deal that Netflix, which has steadfastly stuck to this party line that we are releasing movies on Netflix worldwide the same day that we're putting them in a few theaters. That's the key here. They're moving three movies from the exclusive day and date on Netflix to invaders for about two or three weeks in advance and a few theaters. And the message here is that Netflix wants to play ball with elite talent and get into that Oscar race, which they have been unable to do. And is this going to make a difference? I don't know. But it is a big concession from. Netflix to go away from what they? I have said is their model all on net flicks to giving this the window which will allow those audiences to see it in theaters. I'll tell you what I think I think that net. Flicks made such a fetish of this. And I understand they were launching something, but movies are movies, in some cases. It really does matter as I said Romans one of them, I think that they made such a stink about this that certain theaters don't want anything to do with running their movies. They still don't want that relationship. And I also think this is a small number of theaters fifty around the world, I think is the number, and I'm just guessing you've got an otter like Koran and he's not the only one that is going to seem like not enough. Now, you could say, you know, this will be was made without Netflix money and net flicks, then acquired it in in a way made it possible for the world to see it. And you could say many people do it's better to be seen on screens. You know, more people will see it this way. However, I suspect that not only will the theater is still largely shunned it, but an artist like. Warren will say, you know, this really is not enough. And next time. I'm not doing it. Well, not if he wins best picture, which is gonna pour millions of dollars into campaign to win him best picture, and they believe that by putting it in theaters in New York and Los Angeles and couple of other big cities. They will have a better shot at winning best picture for this guy. And you know, it's it's the push pull it's a huge global audience that Netflix can provide. But they don't give you that theatrical push that many filmmakers want, and to me, the most interesting thing here is Netflix is drawing a line. They're saying these three movies are worthy of the releases. But if I'm a filmmaker that has a movie at Netflix, I say to my agent, where's my theatrical release where why am I not getting what L fonds Roan or the Coen brothers or the Sandra Bullock movie? They're putting in theaters why why am I not getting that? So you're going to see I think people like Guillermo del Toro who has a movie project. Net flicks. Michael bay whose movies are gigantic transam erred. But but Michael bay is used to getting his transformers movies in four thousand riders on opening weekend in the US, and he's gonna make net looks movies. You know, you don't think Michael Bay's going to ask for the window, and yeah, I do actually. And I think that if it does win. Yes. Maybe he will be satisfied, but it may not win because net flicks. Thank you, Matt. Thank you. That's not felony aditorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at two o'clock on the business.

Is Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra's engagement all for show?

"With we call them China's that is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas. I feel like that relationship is totally fake. But I cannot figure out for the life of me. What is in it for Nick Jonas? Do you have any light? You can shed on this matter. You know, I think it's it's basically this goes back to what we were talking about earlier about, you know, doing a favor for somebody. And I think that he's doing the paper for Bianca. And also, I think he's doing a family who, you know. Nick has definitely since the Jonas brothers. Have you know, disbanded Joe's done okay for himself. But I mean nNcholas had some some big success. And then Kevin, you know, just basically selling off assets, right and left. Dan Brady of the Jonas brothers. So I think that they want to have this reality show where Joe is getting married to Turner, and then Priyanka, and you know, angle through this. And I think that that's basically the gist of it. And I think that it's very much. A mutually beneficial kind of thing Priyanka is very very thirsty. So willing to do it Nick willing to do it because he wants to help out his family, and it makes him look a certain way. Okay. So so as this is the question that we keep on asking. Because again, we're on board with the facts that Jonas is a farce. But the question that we keep on asking is like how long does this go on for? I mean, do they end up getting married and not that you have a crystal ball and know this, but I mean do relationships go all the way to they end up with babies sometimes, Well, I I don't know what the baby. But I mean, you know, the people end up married from time to time, but it's pretty rare. General you go through the engagement you get as much as you can maybe there'll be this reality show, they'll do that. And then all of a sudden, you know. They won't be around. I think you also have to remember in this whole reality show thing with cabinet that is why kind of they did a reality show. I think that when she married him that she thought it was gonna be reality show all the time and then also decided to get in the contracting business. You know, I think it's mutually beneficial. Let's just help everybody get along. And I think that the only true couple in the mix it. Well, Kevin is white. But Joe, and Sophie, although, you know, Joe will cause he's he's a groupie you won't be afraid to say Hello. But that's that's the only true coupling. I believe out of the the two
