"Go down memory lane for like weeks before I even write a page. Was there one in particular that had been sitting in a book that you were happy to pull off in this film? John Wick on a horse. Piano goes, I want to be on a horse. I'm like, I'm with you. I just said Lawrence of Arabia. I said, aqaba by land that famous quote from David leans movie. And we're like, okay, we're going to go shoot aqaba. I don't know what we're going to do, but we're going to aqaba. And then my dad's a plumber. Owns a plumbing business back home. And I remember when I was like 14, 15, working for him. We're working at home to have this really cool water feature like a water curtain. It shot water down. It was actually created a wall of water. And I thought that was, I was poking it with my finger. I thought that was the coolest thing. Cut to 40 years later, I just have this sense as water curtain. And I'm like, let's do a nightclub with 40 waterfalls in it. That'll be easy. And that's how that club came about, you know? So I feel like the wick films are always in conversation with movie history, you know, you had the reference to Buster Keaton and spaghetti westerns and Melville and all these films. And in this movie, you know, you have Donnie yen and hero sonata and Scott Atkins who are also kind of figures of movie history at this point and come with, I think a lot of expectation for viewers too if they know their work, how do you think about like, did you know that you wanted those actors for those parts? Did you write those parts for those actors? And did you think about even plotting the sequences with them in mind? Yes, the answer is yes and all that.

This is a big deal for me. This is a big deal. That scott act. Scott adkins might be showing up and in john wick four. It'll give him a little bit more exposure. He was in the last man. Movie man four. He's my choice for the the new johnny cage. If they do get a mortal kombat sequel. I would love to see scott atkins be johnny cage and would love to see scott god. I would love to see him. Show up in john wick movie so i just wanted to use for four other talks in the negotiations for him to join the cast. That's crazy because they already started filming.

I hope he gets. And he's currently filming netflix's next action comedy day shift starring jamie foxx dave franco and making good. So he's right now. He's kinda busy with that.

John wayne movies to end. I fucking love them. I don't see why they will. do you think. Do you think commons gonna come back. He didn't come back in three his definitely gonna come back because basically set him up to almost like john works equal. Didn't they like. And i still love that scene with those two like in that train station and they're just like shooting shooting at each other's with with silencers right and nobody knows what's going on around them except for those two. It's so good. They should do a john wick. Fast and furious. Crossover like chemist. I'm the linemen booker. T. dried up to do anything else. Now i don't know i wanna see john. I would like to see. I would love to see the bob odenkirk just did nobody which was from chad stokowski. I would love to see it. Crossover with nobody at one point. Yeah that seems like the perfect fit news.

I like the ones after the first one. I hate pitch-black. I hate pittsburgh too. It's crazy jake reasons. Like the whole movie's nothing but blinking lights and shaky cam for like the first twenty minutes fucking hated pitch black dude i fuck and i. I absolutely love. Chronicles of riddick with i love that movie. I own it on dvd. Jake i love this stuff after superfund pitch black filmmaking for it so fucking bad. I don't even. I don't remember chronicles.

I don't think i've ever seen riddick. I love chronicles. Of riddick karl. Urban shows up in that movie. And i fucking love it. It's a thousand times better than pitch-black pitch black car bench. Someone had to convince me to watch chronicles of riddick. Because i was just so out after pitch black eyed well he had such. His character was so minor in pitch black. He was kind of the weird not gain. Bad guy character. Yeah just like the guy that's locked up but may cause problems later. Anyway he's talking about. He's saying they're going to be doing a fourth athlete. It seems like it's always been a passion project. His i think it's probably his favourite franchise if you were to ask them. I wouldn't be surprised if that's what he said. I love i love. I love how jacobs's putting words vin diesels mouth i. I didn't say. I think he bought though i speak very you. Loves the riddick shit.

"Movie but much more brutal and it doesn't quite function as a normal martial arts movie at all but you know because van damme is presented as the villain up until basically the last scene of the film then he has to be okay with either the way he's dispatching killed but also that he's presented as this awful man throughout the entire movie. That's what you're going to see because it's really even though van dam only shot for like three or four days on a thirty day shoot because only fifteen percent of the film. He's you know. He's he's the face on the poster. It's obvious atkins movie he. It's van vandamme. Who they're selling on. He's the presold name. He's the one that got on the you know. We're we sold the territory. Because vandamme amazon dot ca scott adkins who was not who is not anything at that point so i understand the importance of it but To to to things that happened right before production starts after van damme signs on one. Is that moshe. Diamant insists that the movie shot in three d. Which makes absolutely no sense if you're going to go through actual right because at that point in two thousand eleven when they were shooting this there is no like much. There's not much of a market for home. Three d right. They don't have the three. Tv's yet and then were really quite taken off so he must be wanting to sell theatrical stuff overseas because at the time two thousand eleven everybody was doing three d. That's after avatar. Everybody was either post converting or they were shooting in three. Because there's like a week and add money to the ticket price but strange to do it for a what is essentially going to be a direct to video movie in the us and the other thing that happens is while dick scott atkins is doing the stunt stuff in for the dark knight rises. He tears his acl So he ends up doing all of universal soldier day of reckoning with tornado. And he doesn't tell peter. Hi sorry. john. Haimes peterson john. High of how serious it is the entire movie but he makes it 'cause he knows that if the if if you mentioned it they'll just replace him and he'll miss his chance so he leaves the production of dark knight rises to go. Get this lead in this movie. But he doesn't ever tell them so because himes had written this really weird script in which the The hero is limping for at first. Half of the movie and doesn't really get into action until a baby at five in the film I can't tell whether they get away with it or not. But i think it helps because he's like building up strength and he's building. It's not that they shot this chronologically anyway. But you have this like. Oh he's getting better. he's getting better. Oh my god like. He's a super soldier so when he gets his fingers cut off they start to grow. Grow back like you're like what is going on here over. The guy gets his foot cut off and then that starts to grow back like what is going on here But it has this strange energy to it that you do not see in other movies of this type at all like this is an odd visceral kind of nausea inducing movie with tons of strobe effects and I mean they're honestly aren't a lot of things like it but what the three d does. Because john heinz doesn't want to do three d. but what it does is they have to shoot the fight scenes differently because normally when you're shooting today they don't have to get as close with the punches right they can get a foot or so away but because it's three they get much closer so the punches and everything else look like. They're right that you're hitting because they really are that close because they were like right here just like an answer to because they have to because the three d. craigslist thing now. I'm not saying you should watch moving three. But i think it creates this eerie feeling to most of the shots. This weird distance. I don't know if you noticed that. How do you watch it in three day. You get some three d. glasses or you get the three d blu ray from from europe. Basically there's no reason. I i know someone who seeing the three d. They said. it doesn't make any it doesn't help it doesn't matter i've only seen it in two Three doesn't work for me very well. Anyway so maybe would make a difference. I mean if the guy who is a big fan says it doesn't make a difference. I'm i'm gonna. I'm gonna trust his judgment so so they so because they they get the financing because of the three d. Told that now the three d. is would allow the financing. And they're gonna get eight million dollars but they only get three million dollars. Shoot it the five million dollars was i. Guess i'm not gonna make any speculation pocket by somebody. Something like that. But but haim says that it that it cost three million dollars to make movie and shooting thirty days which is even more ambitious considering the scale the scope of this movie some of these chases that car chase that they shot with a car crash stuff. They did that in two days with one camera. And when you watch it you're astonished because it's a really good thing But as script is like this weird mixture like david lynch pockets now and universal soldier And it's about these Takes the plotting. Remember at this point So it has like the basic universal soldier plot of like killers sent out to who worked for the government level but this time they revolted and because it's also about the fact that maybe their memories aren't meal and that they might you might meet your clone at some point and then maybe there's a moment where you you fail to kill your boss and he's laughing at you and there's that you remember that insane scene were the guy who is faced. His head torn off is like pointing out these murderer via I love that bit or all of the stuff. like the. there's just this whole thing looks like just the most distortion uncomfortable movie. Can you play the scene a visit to a friend. There's not even a fight in the same but just look at this.

"And welcome my friends who yet another episode of the mind dog tv. Podcast i'm matt napa. Thanks for coming in. It's great to have you here as always. That's adam lippi over there. They're beautiful lovely and talented adam. Libyan tonight is the last wednesday of the month which means it's movie night and tonight we will be looking at two films Drive and universal soldier. Four blah blah blah blah blah is the title of that one. I believe Blah blah blah blah is correct universal soldier day of reckoning. Okay my my take on on the movies. And i'll i'll start off on a great note here I think i could've watched ford fairlane three times in time. It took me to watch both of these movies and enjoyed a lot more. In that amount of time you would have watched no good movies. So you have that product Chew but i. I would have enjoyed mentally so i guess. Maybe this is mostly solo show. But i'll i'll engage you as i go along for the ride. I didn't enjoy aspects of both movies. And there were they will moments of each way is to chuckled in wherever there was slight bits of humor most more so in drives in university. There's more humor and drive I like that and the other one had And i'll just say this right from the start had a at times video. Ask a video game at about universal especially some of the scenes that made it feel almost like it was relation of video game simulation or or One of one of the games you watch somebody on twitch right now and we're onto it but somebody's unplanned some violent game. That looks a lot like that. I had see the video game angle. And i'm going to get into a little bit of that that later tonight. We're covering dry from nine hundred ninety seven not the two thousand eleven version with ryan gosling. This is an art nineteen ninety-seven with mark to casco's and condemn artisan It is being released on blu ray for the first time in the uncut version. A couple of weeks from mgd entertainment. And it's a never released uncut in the us The clips i sent matt. Come from my pal. Dvd that i bought twenty years ago in england and when it came out in america It was cut and by about twenty minutes and re scored and cropped and dump to hbo. And so what. I want to talk about tonight. Are two movies that i think should have caused these The stars of the film scott adkins and mark casco's scott atkins university directly to become like big action stars. Because they're both great athletes. Charming good-looking charisma. You know all the things that would be necessary and it never happened for them for various reasons And i wanted to get into why that is. What's that why we want the you brought it up. Well that's yeah that's serious now. Sure sure so. I think to understand that you have to break down the development of martial arts in america. Obviously this very long. If i went into asian films because there covered in it so i just wanted to an even longer if i like broke down. Which martial arts we're talking about because are so many different kinds but i just wanted to you know but let's start with like prep just a co-opting of culture. The most notable early example is a james cagney movie from nineteen forty-five called blood on the sun. A see what happened. Is james cagney. Brother had read about a doja. Being run by policemen. so he hired the policemen who who retired from the force name. Was jack seargl to teach him. Judo play the villain in the movie in in yellow face. Who fights him in the in the Conclusion of the film. Now i note taking is in yellow face. You know makes this racist buffalo at the time the all the japanese were in interment camps. And this guy trained with them while they were in interment camps and got investigated by the police himself while he was still a cop and that's why he retired and took a him and just became this different guy for the remainder of his career stunts. And all that stuff. So i will give him a pass on being in the elevators because there's a fascinating. Npr story about this guy grab About how he was still training with some of the japanese who were still in internment camps at the time and how they tried to make it look like he was collaborating in some sort so the end of the time there were no japanese people in america who are allowed to run doj. Oh so there weren't a lot of here. So james cagney brother brought him brought to him and so if.
