"Think that that's a huge I thought there's going to be a huge selling point, but we think about like internationally outside the United States and Europe iphones aren't that. He drew phone in comparison to. Just the market just is way different internationally in so maybe finding a way to decouple this business from their iphone business their apple business, so it's it's just they're reaching. And they started to soon the should wait a year and it just ultimately it's GonNa. It's GonNa. Hurt them back in potentially spoil this business for the future of that. Maybe by the time their in house talent can get going, and they have a few projects that are pretty decent going to be so far behind. They're GONNA have cancel. The service is just it's. It's just weird. The other thing that I think is just worth noting to to kind of wrap this up. Is that the while they probably should have another year before they launched I think the biggest thing is for them. They didn't want to be the last major streaming streaming service to launch. A year later would have put them even further out than peacock. And now we know that CVs Slash Viacom. CVS is putting together something new. That won't launch until twenty twenty one. I think that apple because they always want people to believe that therefore four thinking wanted to get out ahead of the pack the promise he just didn't have the amount of content. Really draw people in there certainly content there. There they're certainly content that I think a lot of people would check out, but I think the problem is that I. Don't think anybody who isn't getting for. Free is wanting to go spend money for an additional service, even as inexpensive as is and take it on just to watch a couple of shows. It's just unfortunate because that's the way the mindset is for these. You know the the streaming services. Expect a lot of content. Even if you're not even watching a lot of content I mean I have a Netflix subscription I watch content on net flicks. I'm watching a series. I might be lucky if I have time to watch, know one one season of a show. That's ten episodes long per month. Maybe and that's you know that's ideal. Because there's there's other content out there, and unless you are under the assumption that the only content out there is your own content. Everyone's GonNa. Want to check out yours, and if you are under that assumption that you probably need a lot more than just you know, eat shows that you launch with so with that. That being said that's GonNa, wrap a discussion I. Do want to encourage guys. Check out the two articles that were the basis behind this discussion like I, said the article on Forbes from Scott Mendelson and then the article from the Entertainment Strategy Guy. Those articles are found in the show notes that you can find on our site. Streaming was dot I. O. With all that being said check out the trailers. There is a good chunk of trailers that released over the past week. There's some worth noting one. One specifically that I know twenty and I both enjoyed was the season two trailer of the boys, which is coming the beginning of September. That was one project that we both were talking about. When that trailer launched, that was so good, just even the teaser trailer for the trailer man, the boys so good. It's definitely check that out with all that being said you can follow us on twitter. Join dischord to check out all the articles that we talk about here on the podcast all of us on.

"That's me senior Ben Pearson. On and read our Chrissy. Hello. Folks H. She couldn't make it here today, but we're going to carry on without her Let's jump into it. Let's talk about what we've been doing Chris. You're the only person that's been doing anything this week. It's true I'm a I'm a busy boy. I recorded a new episode of twenty-first-century. Spielberg this is a bonus episode. My guest. This time was Scott Mendelson he writes group Forbes and. A lot of fun with this woman. He was he was a very lively guest. It's not too I'm not shitting on my previous guests. He just he just had a lot more to say than than some other guests so far so. It's very entertaining episode we talk about. Munich and war the world we also talk about a lot of other stuff we talk about the Christopher Nolan chair controversy all the all the all the fun stuff that's going on. Talk about if movie theaters are going to reopen again or not, because that's Hey Scott primarily writes about box office, so that's sort of like his his field of expertise. I wanted to get his opinion on that, so please go listen to that episode. If you will, it's available now. Yes Scott Scott has opinions on everything. A lot of I I like talking to easily see event or before the pandemic usually saw him at screenings and stuff like that. He usually has a strong opinion. Strong thoughts on everything yes. Okay, let's move. Who've been reading Jacob Book, even reading this week. I've been catching up in some comics to I want to call out specifically. One ended late last year by fell off of it because I missed a few physical issues and I, and I felt like I'd hate to be. The Guy didn't have physical issues, but I've got around to reordering them through Ebay and finished a series, and that is a curse words the. Image Comics series written by Charles Soul who a lot of marvel loss star wars comics. He's one the main writers on the new The new publishing initiative at Star Wars having. An artist Ryan Brown, who wrote and drew when my favorite comics vol time called. God hates astronauts. And curse words is incredibly funny, incredibly strange fantasy series. About this. Fantasy world that called it the whole world with nine w. sort of a massive universe, esque, dark fantasy, world, Saturday morning cartoon, but more are rated in master that world, the his his chief, dark wizard, named wizard to Earth to destroy and conquer for his kind and resort guests. Earth realizes he kinda likes it there and realized that you can become a very fast celebrity millionaire if he uses his magic to solvable problems. So ends up being this. Initially fish out of water series about an evil wizard, pretending to be good wizards to become rich and famous in the world, and ends up realizing that. Oh, he didn't do his job so now all the actual evil from his own previous world. Leading and he has defend Earth from his old friends, and it is really funny. It is like drop hysteric like it's not just during the arts I Ryan Braun has a knack for drawing physical comedy, and just the way he will draw sound effects to the. Environment is is is something I've seen done as well as he does and Charles Soul is he I've always liked reading. I read him doing out comedy, and I wish he would I hope he does more because he's generally funny has a real knack for character-driven driven comedy as well as just completely random surreal, silly things curse words this twenty eight issues all available publication in some capacity, either digitally or physically another just kick started a hardcover for the entire series in one volume which I missed the kick starter by hoping to track down a copy. It is so much fun Brad. You'd love curse words. This is so much brad thing. But I need nothing about this and I'm a big Charles Soul Guy I. Also try to track down, I guess. It was really funny and really interesting. I might have to check it out as well. Yeah, if I mean the the last home stretch I. It's not that. Not that there aren't dramatic stakes before the ending by mentioned earlier balancing humor with really being about stuff, which is it. That's a low hanging fruit to compensate on, but I feel like. So many comedies commentaries any any medium film TV. Are Are. Try To. Become become become about something. Serious homestretch is like hey. Let's stop being funny and talk about why matters or curse words at a really good job of slowly building of that and realizing what the series is about in type of really hit you hard in the end But another Charles Soul series I've been reading. It's one is new only six issues in. And he writes it with. Scott, Snyder, who writes a lot of hard comics for image, but also wrote Batman for longtime wrote Justice League and written by illustrated by Giuseppi Komo Coley. Who I've seen a lot of. There's a lot of work as well. This is called undiscovered country as a science fiction series, but how in the future set in twenty sixty s? a plague has is ravaging the world. Which I did not. Realize about reading it People Are Dying and America is not fair. Because thirty years earlier, America erected. Aren't borders and sell all kinds of advance technology to block a communication is completely isolated and cut off in the world for for three decades to the point where kids who grew up a world without the United States and are unaware of America is. And then of pandemic. a message comes out for America. I, am thirty years besides just saying we have a cure for the pandemic Mita within our borders we will. We will meet with you and. We will. Solve all this so a team of international Diplomats scientists in other shady figures fly into America for the first time in thirty years. And, encounter really really bad things. America has become something really awful in thirty years of isolation and it feels like a combination. Like pulp daring was loud venture live action about big criticized ideas Basel Snyder in Seoul, not so subtly deconstructing the idea of America in the twenty first century is rolling first century on an international stage and responsibilities or lack thereof. Undiscovered country only six issues in the first tracy back. Electing the first ARC is out now. It's really good I. It's really creepy and exciting in weird and I really recommend. It s undiscovered country. It it sounds really I'm not sure it's something I wanna read. Right now because. She was at. The series started before the pandemic by I I bought the first. Six issues and it had read them yet. So I sat down there Dan Rather through them. All sitting is really good doesn't make me feel really bad, but it's it is a really really strong comic, so if you have the need or the desire. To, put aside real-world events and engage with it. It is worth your time. Okay. Let's move onto what we've been watching. Let's start first with Eurovision Song contest the story of Of Fire. Saga I guess Christie saw this last week. Would what did you think I did I really like this? I was hesitant to watch it because I'd heard somewhat mixed things, although I've heard part of the positive things to. And also, because it's over two hours long, and I feel like comedy should be that long, no matter how good it is, that said I had a lot of fun with this It's not. It's not like a classic it has it has problems. The the run time is definitely one of those problems, but. It's so silly and funny and good natured and Rick Adams is so good. And it Dan Stevens is really good in it. Even we'll Farrell. His everyone in the movie is very good and I liked how it's sort of defied what I was expecting I. You know it's sort of sets up. You think like Dan Stevens is going to be the villain, but he turns out to be you know kind of a you know okay guy in the end and I just I just had a lot of fun with it and the humor. My kind of just dumb. Dumb. Nonsensical humor and the songs are great to get some really great song in it so I I, you know. I had a lot of with this. Brad. This sounds like a movie that you would like. Yeah I watched a to and I I enjoyed it for the most part I had a lot of fun with it I'm not quite as enamored with or in love with a as I've seen. Some people say there are just a lot of parts of this movie that I love I like Chris said it does feel like it. runs A. A little too long overstays its welcome a little bit, and I think the biggest problem. I had with it. Is that sometimes? It feels like they have a hard time balancing how seriously they take the drama and the romance side and mixing that with the extreme silliness of the the premise and the characters and some of the comedy, because some of the comedy borders on parody, but because Rachel McAdams..

"Not not quite as good as it will say my name all all right Mike. We're going to get to know you. A little bit. Better came it but first we are going to tell our listeners. Just a couple of the things we're talking about today Star Wars episode nine. Nine reviews dropped two nights ago at midnight and they're not great. I've never seen anything you'd never seen. Well no I mean people are so pre angry. Yes ever seen people this angry. Yeah they were post angry after after after the last Jedi and they're still angry still miss a brand new movie. Yeah so we're GonNa talk about that where it falls in the sequence of of a metacritic review counts It's pretty far down there. We're GONNA talk about how well the president is dealing with his impeachment. Goodland talking about impeaching this voter purging in Georgia still happening just all sorts of Shit Cats apparently apparently Tom Hooper. The director of cats on the red carpet admitted that he had finished the movie the day before after thirty six. Our all nighter favorite thing. I never heard a love. It Organ talk about that. We're going to talk about survivors metoo incident and just how perfectly thickly they handle that. CBS is really good at this sort of thing. So we'll talk about that all of that and plenty more but first Mike. We like to ask our guests. What is something from your search history tree that is revealing about who you are the my last thing? I searched for was called blogging doom blog of doom. Yeah what is it's a behind unseens pro wrestling block. Okay you said that was such pride I I am. I didn't search for being prepared that I was going to have to talk about Are you a big professional wrestling fan. Yeah yes other way to qualify that plug of doom. You learn anything interesting. Oh did I learn anything interesting. No of visiting I I don't watch the. WWE sworn off of them for like a year. And a half now. So when I do go to blog boom basically get Reaffirmed and mine boycotting of them find out some decision that they made. I'm like Yep still making the right decision vision. Yeah not doing it. This might as well be in a different language. I'm looking at the blog at the smart grant for. WWe Monday night raw yet. So that means the guy who writes that blog tuck who also does not like. WWe watches it. Every week does his content God so this is him shooting alone. Whatever wrestling happened Monday night? Got It okay and wrestling. Wrestling is every week like this. Whatever forever they never have no longer sees their fifty two weeks a year of brand new programming forever forever? It's been like that since like the eighties. Yeah Yeah and that's probably at least partially why They have so many problems. The wrestlers themselves right. Yeah for sure. They're just treated horribly. Yeah it's it's not easy to fall fall hard for a living living on purpose. We don't daylight guys never take a break right. That's true that's why you have so many raced. Conversely I am not thrown around by muscle bound person for a living right imagine. Somebody came in the room dress as an irradiated lice. And just how bomb on June through this table ready. I'm ready every week every week. Goodness you're made a good stuff Kaelin thank you. What does something you think is overrated rated? Sweet potato fries. Yes thank you all speak quite grace. I think they look on the paper. Apor I think in the mouth. That is a different story and we just started being honest with ourselves about how you don't need to cook every potato the same way okay. So what's your what's your beef with. Sweet potato fries. The sweetness is weird. Sweetness of of a potato that is fried. It is weird appeared. Tastes like you're eating like a crispy butter stick or something not good. You wouldn't. There's a reason that you don't eat crispy butter sticks and they're also you're you're never be enough. I feel like they are a bit soft soft. I we went out for dinner for Holiday Party last last night. We had a delicious sweet potato and it was just a a potato that just sat there. It was nice big soft it was it was a good form form of sweet potato if they turned it into little sticks or little threads that were soft it would have made it not as good like I. I think. That's it's a really good way of thinking about it that you don't have to cook just because it's a potato does not mean just because we named it a potato does not mean that it needs to be Dystonia fries and I guess maybe the secret truth of it is it is probably really not a potato right right. Yeah I guess that's right Cam. There's not the same thing as a sweet potato any of these run around putting sweet potato fries on our mouths if that's a thing right and then you like dipped them catch up. Even though it doesn't go together new dislike sweet potatoes. Got Ahead of you there so you like you. Just don't like them and FRY for. I don't like him in five. Four okay my goodness baked baked more than like a baked potato. Yeah that's good. What's under aid digital comic book some Digital Comic Digital Comic Book? Okay what do you read them. I I have the marvel comics APP. Read a Moma ipad okay everywhere especially on airplanes. What's what is something that people so I'm just imagining edging having to Pinch and scroll around a image What what am I missing about digital comic book? Well the best part is you don't have to go anywhere to get them that it's good go to a comic bookstore and be surrounded by a bunch of nerd right arrose. Well the th you know that most of them are empty now anyway right the one nerd behind the counter and you can keep him company. That's fine raise. You don't want it depend on him. Yes and they're weird hours and the the conversations that they have with you that are not about what you buy. I mean we used to be be used to perform and I used to involve a nerd. Mount Meltdown Comics. It is now gone R.I.P. That's a great place. Bummer bummer. But I still WANNA comic books regardless of whether or not there are comic bookstores right. So I'm happy about the this other option. What's it what's something exciting exciting? That's happening in the we. We rarely talk about comics on and the daily Zeitgeist. That's that's a oversight on our part we should talk more about comics. What's was the most exciting thing that's happening comics in your mind for the over the past couple of years to X.? Men are being have just gotten rebooted in the comics. fucking great it. Is it so good. Pretty they're all like separatists now and they live on their own island. Oh he started growing these drugs that humans depend end on for health. So the Lord Netto everybody and not letting anybody on their island fucking great. I was featured in a comic book. Recently is Irag. What do you mean by that My likeness was in a comic called ghosted in La by scenic grace And Jamie was well. We depicted us being in a like alive Bechtel. Cash show talking about titanic. Obviously obviously so we were drawn as a in the comic. And that's all she did you. Did you name it. I have not prime framed it yet. I've never framed anything in my entire life. Real including my diploma weren't got my masters degree in screenwriting from Boston. University's it's a piece of paper lying somewhere somewhere. He'll file cabinet somewhere loose. Yeah Yeah That's pretty cool. So was it just sort of like background. Something that was going on in the background ground did it have something to do with the characters. Go to a live back L. cash so we are not the focus. Yeah we're we got a few frames James and the crowd is laughing. Their their rear ends off I might go home and download that on my ghosted in La. Check it out there. Ha- jaiing there's big ha-has flying through the air pretty slow lane and finally what is a myth. What is something people think is true? You not fall sir vice versa that you can only get chicken pox one time. Oh yeah him. That is not true. Not True How many the times of you had three Holy Shit Yeah. How does this happen? My immune system is just stubborn. That way don't WanNA learn less. Were they all when you were a child yet at at different stages of childhood last an almost like thirteen got it I had shingles so that's absolutely right flex what Shingles is like a form of chicken pox like left in the body or something. Yeah so you get chicken. Can Pox. Virus lies dormant in your system and sometimes later in life it'll flare up as shingles usually it happens in An older population. But I got it when I was nineteen because I'm special but I had. It had chicken pox when I was three years old and it was a very very mild case. The only think I had like three little pox on me so reach year one for each year. I was alive. Yeah and the doctors speculated that I got shingles so young because I had such a mild case and I got so young. Are you an ex-man earn X.. C'mon I'm an ex woman woman. Yeah thank you very specific mutation. We'll all all right guys. Let's talk about Star Wars episode nine. The end of the saga. who were is as you said? Mike people are pissed already already there fired up because the last movie. The last Jedi pissed a lot of people off to try to take star wars in a new direction. Tried to upset. Some people's expectations have a question. Yeah this new direction yes it was just. She's not related to anybody. Yeah tire direction. Yeah Yeah and then I also liked that they killed that one dude who it seemed like he was going to be a big villain and then they just like cut them in half snow but that is the dragon from from the Hobbit. Yeah But yeah they just chop them in half one of my favorite moments of a star wars movie but yeah and I'm mocking ally. I did not like that new direction. That much interest and I don't like that I don't like it because it has like like being like no they have to be genetically related is weird and Lake Eugenic. See like it's like kind of like no I. I want it to be all by. Genetics is is weird and not something that I generally buy into but it does seem like the universe. I that we were given up to. That point was one in which like the force was passed down lake. I don't know like because as a gene but as a G.. Yeah do this weird legacy thing with it up until do do do do But they but also like and can skywalker. WHO's his? Who are his parents and do we care about that? Were they Jedi masters no right so to me. It's more I just interpreted. The whole thing is like like your your force powers your Djeddai potential is something the maybe like a pass down among generations. or Or. You're just maybe it's you're just born with this special. Maybe you're it's kind of an X.. Men thing maybe it's just right mutation but That isn't even why I didn't like last last Jedi. Like the he likes subverted. The idea that like no rage doesn't have special parents although I maintain that raise parents are a C. Three Po and the other she three that we see the beginning of a new hope. Because she's so many languages. How would she know how to communicate with bb V8? How does she speak Wookey? She speaks all these languages. She's a protocol droid is what I'm saying. Yes but is the the the first terminator in the Star Star. Wars universe basically yeah. She's got an endo skeleton. That is a C. Three Po which a rise of the machines esque USC plot in Star Wars would be fitting because like there is in the background of the Star Wars movies all of them up to this point gist droids being tortured and treat them like share and and programmed to be able to feel pain and fear. They're like well. Why don't we get this one in anxiety disorder? Let's let that. That'd be fun for him but yeah so anyways there seems to be in the run-up to this even like in the press and the interviews with J.J. Abrams and the cast a like light. Light struggle for the soul of Star Wars. Where they're like our so glad that it's back in? Jj's hands and According to the reviews he has done some mm ret conning or going back on some of the unpopular decisions of Episode Eight That critics liked him. Fans did did not like and now critics are pissed Scott Mendelson from Forbes is calling it the worst star wars movie cheese crumbs already already the worst worst in than than clone the attack of the clones so I was telling Caitlyn I kind of like..

"Indoor Beck, and it's time to check in with the box office. We like to look at the box office to see what Americans are thinking about feeling. And right now America is fucking with John wick in a major way John wick three came out over the weekend. And so John wick one was like a hit, but it was like it's a prize sleeper hit. People didn't see it coming. And John wick to came out, and it doubled the box office of the first one. Oh, doubled it yet. Doubled it John wants to double the box office, that makes sense because most people, I think, caught on John wick after the fact, so John wick three came out this past weekend, and double, John wick to so, which, so the students got Mendelssohn, Scott Mendelson writes about the box office, and he said, this is completely unprecedented. The only times that it's happened in the past are with Toy Story. And captain America. And he pointed out that Toy Story headed decade break between two and three so, you know, you have inflation, and people more people, so and then captain, America's third movie was civil war, which was basically, in avengers movies. They were adding all these new elements to it. And Toy Story, three was adding the element of sadness and just, just existential drift. He's a winner. John wick three Dali thing, it added was like a cameo from Halle Berry. And I think there was more dogs, Barry doctor, the house actor. Right. But he was just saying it's really a testament to what originality and like a homegrown franchise can do if you like actually create a new franchise by just based on this very simple idea of, like, what if the best assassin instead of just like bond being a pretty good one? Like what if it was a guy who was like, almost supernatural good at killing people? And then I also think there's like a money ball aspect to it in the sense that they noted there was this competitive advantage with stunt, coordinators directing movies in foreign like the raid movies were these action movies, like broke out internationally, kind of out of nowhere, and they were made by a stunt coordinator, and so they gave a stunt coordinator a movie. With, like America's favorite movie action hero. And as with moneyball where the second person who figures this thing out ends up doing better because they like make small corrections to it. You know, Oakland did well but they didn't actually win at all. And then Boston use that theory to win the World Series like I think, John wick is the Boston in that because it's not like that. Yeah, I mean, thank you might not, like it, but they're the evil empire, so, wow. Well, someone's looks fan a SOX fan he saw. But anyways, yeah, it's an unprecedented like rise. He said, borderline miraculously, especially in this world where, you know, net flicks is killing original movies, according to everybody, I think, again, it is. It's like when they say the directors for action scenes are action films normally be like all right. I get with this stunt coordinator. I'm like, how do we make this fight look, cool? And they tell you. But then the directors ultimately going to be like, oh, I wanna do this. And this just like, hey guys who always think up to wild stunt scenes. What if you just book and made a whole movie? What does that look? And they're like, oh, really? Yeah. John wick. Looked off because it really does it like it's like a it's, it's almost. Yeah, you could the these stunt, coordinators are like just doing their wildest dreams getting to put them on screen. And they're yeah, it's not pretending the action movies are about anything else. Right. Just go for it right? People like in these simple. I'm just looking at your script like I mean, there's no exposition here. What's the inciting incident? Right. The guy's dog gets killed and that's. Yeah. The rest. Okay. All right. It's almost like a comically simplified movie like premise, because it's just like the dog being killed is like the one thing you don't do in a movie. Yeah. They're just like that's enough to drive him to be the best killer..

"Up some rains as to what needed to be put on that dot com. And it changed me for my perspective on wanting to do it every day because when way from balanced and more around yet, entertainment, you somebody's paying a certain amount to be at across fit, Jim and they need an hour. Workout. Yeah. It's possible though. It's that's definitely a theory. It's a theory. We'll never know. Which is also an issue because there's no transparency in the movement around that. Yeah. And so basically sound sounds like what you're saying is before that two thousand seven timeframe it was almost just like a tester test. Like, hey, guys. Try this kind of like a roll the dice. And it might be one thing maybe two things. Yeah. And then it switched into their being like, I don't know six seven things on the board. Yeah. We'll everyday was a test. But you I would I would say it was it was just put into different areas that would allow you to love this aspect of broad, fitness. That's what that's you know, like people would never even think about this. But there actually workouts. We did in two thousand four that were like, you know, practiser L set for twenty minutes, you know, and people is that all we're fucking doing. You know, if I if I tell like younger participants in the sport today, they're like that's seriously. All you did. And especially like, yeah, that's all we did in a session. Like, they can't even manufacture the I. That you would work on skills for twenty minutes. C how the whole the whole shift just fucking. It. Went went down the toilet. Right. It was like how can I get smashed today? How is that L set? Can we do like a head of heavy med ball carries with it and fucking jump rope. No. You're just going to practice the L set or else it roped climb for reps. Which was obviously very challenging, you know, it's almost like giving someone a standard load eighty percent dead lift and saying do one every two minutes, you know, for twenty minutes. It's like it's challenging shit. Right. You got to be precise. And you got to do it effectively. And that just lost. It was long always blows my mind. Now, this tends to happen on this podcast a lot. We recently had Scott Mendelson on the podcast. He had a the biggest bench press of all time. It is seven hundred fifteen.

"Why like, you know, why do you think you're still so obsessed with it seems like with the bench just just with lift this is like the whole lifting thing like your almost like possessed by right? Like, it seemed like you probably sacrificed a lot of things you had a had a great gym going. You're very smart guy had other businesses going over here. Got agreed Jim. And there's a lot of opportunities that you probably just couldn't really get into because you're taking so much time in the gym. You know, it was funny because rich used to tell me, you know, these guys got all into YouTube and everything and he's like men, do you gotta get into YouTube. Now's the time, and I just didn't do it. Because I wanted my name to be solidified as the greatest, you know, I didn't want to just be a YouTube guy. I wanted to be something that like when I walked in your gym today. Lifters? And they were just like cement and Bubba. I mean to me, that's solid. You know what I mean? When people were like your legend, do you know fucking long. I worked to have somebody say that to me. It's like into me. That's reality. That's you know, you hear the name Scott Mendelson, and there's no fucking question on the only man in the world to ever break, the raw and the equip record at the same time. You know, you're the first eight hundred pounds. No, I was a second rich rich lack hit at like ten minutes before I nine hundred. I don't know. I was a second two thousand. Yeah.

That's the end of it it all. Yup. I'll see guys later. You gotta tell me about horse. Cock. Really know much about 'em. Really? I mean, you know, he's dead. I know that good way to start off the podcast. Yeah. Figured yes. So I used to go to a gym longtime ago used to go to Jim called LA lifting club and me. And my brother would always be like what the hell's up with this guy. This guy is he always wear cargo shorts. And somehow you could see his junk through the cargo shorts in his name was Scott Mendelson. Like something wrong with them out. A massive, dude. All I know this guy had a cock like the size the thickness of your Starbucks Cup. Bro was ridiculous. You've seen it. I saw it. One time. Scared me to this day resonates in my head. It was like twenty years ago. Damn I thought to myself, Scott you are insufficient. You're officially inferior. Yes. Absolutely. He's demand the alpha. So I met this wonderful man over here. Scott Mendelson, probably twenty some odd years ago. I went to a power of the meat with my brother, and we were in the warm up room. And there was this guy who was loud and over the top and brash, and he was talking about wanting to break records. He's talking. He's gonna bench six fifty. And then in a couple years is going to break the all time world record like who's this guy turned out to be Scott Mendelson? He turned out to be right turned out bench over seven hundred pounds on that role. Yeah. Rall on that particular day Iwo had a mishap, right? The weight. Yeah. I on your dropped. You know, you grip. I was going, and you know, what I didn't. I didn't know how to power. So I I was just benching close grip because that's what I did. And I was hitting six forty close grip. And I came. Came in. And I used to thumb list because you know, I don't know what the hell I was doing. And I ended up dropping like six hundred and something pounds on my chest from lockout and that was the introduction of my elaborate powerlifting career. And then you were like, well, maybe I should wrap my thumbs around the bar. That was my last fall script workout. How are you able to develop you know, like there's a lot of people that bench, you know, four hundred pounds. I one hundred pounds. And we we start to see people kind of top out. They start to get the five or start to get to six seven hundred pound limit or let seven hundred pound weight rather seems to be a huge limit for a lot of people. There's only been like five people to ever really maybe five or six people to ever do it. Right. How the hell are you able to build that kind of strength? The always it's been strong, or well, you know, what I was always you know, when I was a kid. I always I collect comic books to this day. I still do I like fifty thousand books and Holck was my favorite character. So ever since I was a kid. I wanted to be the strongest man in the world, you know, some people want to be an astronaut or a fireman. I just want to be the strongest man in the world hawk lifts like thirty five thousand pounds. So I thought what the hell I'll follow suit. You know what I mean? And you know throughout life. I I kinda just had that in mind. So when I was about fifteen years old one of my friends almost killed this guy. And I got picked up for it by the law, and I didn't snitch them off. Don't show this clip yet angel- say this for a little bit later. I didn't snitch them off..

"Total in the Michael Brown show Christian total the studio we're talking about the movie vice opening Christmas day opening Christmas day, man. Oh, man. So one quick comment, which to me, I guess as a chance it's true, but it really illustrated. How cartoonist the whole presentation is early in the film, you've got Dick Cheney he's at a an, internship, and Donald Rumsfeld is the speaker much younger man, and he gives a kind of a goofy little helter, skelter speech, and so changes in the audience with someone else. And the other guy says, you know, what I wanted to choose between Republicans Democrats going to be with their Democrats is it, okay? If I do that. And then you go to the Republican side, and he says something like, well what what's that guy speaking? Well, he's a Republican. I want to be. Political ideology was based on one goofy little speech to me. I guess as a comedy there may be some. But it just seems so stupid. What will you so insulting is this? Do you call this a biopic, what is this movie and he's a political satire? Bio-pic for sure he kind of crosses jars. But but that moment just I and that's early in the film and thinking, oh, oh, they're going to do that. Yeah. So it's it's not only are you evil. But you don't even have a guiding principle, you just kind of hitched your wagon to this side because you just thought it was expedient. And then you stuck with it. But it could mean that you like limited government could mean that you're a patriot. None of those things it means that. You gotta you gotta do some dice roll. Well, you know, what I'll give them some leeway in an area that I don't really have intimate knowledge of and that is the personal relationship between lemon Dick Cheney. Don, I knew both of them sold them, both informal and social settings. But Lynne Cheney always struck me as an incredibly smart woman. Let me she's written history book. Yeah. Yeah. She's done all sorts of she's done amazing things, but she was portrayed as kind of his not not not moral compass, but she was kind of what kept him on the straight and Ryan burrow and kept him focused on the objective. We want power. We want power. Yes. I don't know about the power trip. But I would say that like most powerful men that I've known all of their wives have been strong willed women. Nancy Reagan, strong willed, women, Laura. Bush as you might call her the school librarian. Oh, no, not at all. And they do say Lynne Cheney that way, I think she's strong. But also they mentioned earlier that he failed out from Yale twice, which is true. They don't make that he went back to another college. I think he got his PHD. It was going to actually become a professor at some point. So they they kind of skip out. But I mean, they leave out so much it's, but the listen he did fell out of yell, and I'm going to guess he was troubled at the young man and just sort of righted the ship as George W Bush where do I start? Describe briefly the whole VP selection process. That's not how it went down which is important in the movie, it's critical to the movie, but the way that went down was so so Joel ball who was the governor Bush's chief of staff it was campaign manager for the presidency was assigned to put together a vice presidential selection committee. Joe new Cheney and said, let's have him headed up. They started vetting people. They were actually vetting and the reason I know this Joyner friends, they were vetting people. Joe finally recognized as they're going through this whole process. We I think you ought to be president. And he went to Bush Cheney didn't go to Bush and say, look, you know, I'm gonna play a cool here. No, no, no, no. No, no. And Cheney did have to be talked into it. So it wasn't this Machiavellian kind of you know, kind of dance, you know, playing hard to get kind of thing that didn't go down that way at all the point. And this is extremely minor. But I think it's fascinating at one point you see Cheney eating and he's licking his fingers and kind of gross way. Which is I mean Bush hold on. Oh. And then later Bush is is eating chicken wings chicken. He's there's a freeze frame with like the food half in and half out of his mouth. Yes. And then he's licking his fingers. And it's this whole licking your chops. It they had the hyena scenes. It's so I forgot about those were they were they stop. And they do the credits in the middle of the movie. Yeah. Give me a break that was so cheesy. Yeah. I mean, it's just it's so many cheap shots all compiled into one. Although again, I I will say I felt like the family scenes were much more tender than I expected having heard a lot about you. Right. And I give the filmmakers credit for that. Because e. They pretend as a monster. But on the home front he seemed very eventually with his kid kids. Don't know Mary Cheney is a lesbian, and that was that was pretty public knowledge. And and he supported her I think in the movie in the real life wholly supported in real totally supported or that was interesting. I was I was intrigued the even included that because again, a humanized was a tender moment tender moment. Yeah. So all right. So and need to get to the narrator, which is a tall shot. And by the way, when you got a narrator in a movie, it means that you're moving is failing. Right. You don't need a narrator. If you're telling the story properly this, but Jesse Plemmons who's a very good actor is the narrator and his role is important. Not just as a narrator. I'll say, no more. But it it is that true too, many cheap shots is the whole now we know about the heart problems. But the narrator was he? Spoiling something pretty big here. Deal with us. Factually, you I don't give a rat's I either. So the narrator is is a he he plays a typical American kid wife kids know, ends up going to Afghanistan survives Afghanistan comes back. And I forget how he gets hit by a truck or something isn't doing his narration. Right. And that's the heart that Cheney gets you despoiling care. I do not care. I'm trying to say. Puerto fifty sixty bucks, I'm saving everybody, fifty sixty bucks. Wait till on demand. All right. The movie critic and these like, no, you don't care. You asked me to go to this movie by you're getting paid. This is payback. I don't know whether that's true or not. But I did think the whole narration thing was very cheese. And the fact they kept playing on the heart, and they actually physically you could see a heart unscreened. Kyle Smith national review who really torn apart said it was like a joke or running gag didn't quite see it that way. But it seemed like an odd thing to focus on and it was like the most obvious metaphor. Heartless? Yes. Well, the reason I thought it was a gag was because. Cheney. Was kind of a joke. We know that Cheney has a bad heart. So we all need to like do we yell at him? Do. Pressure. Heart attack today, the president or the vice president's is you're kind of drooping is alive. You know, those kind of jokes dig around the mutt. Honestly. Right. So. So. The reviews for the film. So I think earlier this week the embargo lifted right? So we started to see the reviews now the before their views came in. It was critics choice Golden Globe sag awards. So critics were seeing it an industry insiders were voting for it. And then the reviews command it's not I don't have to check with the brunt. Can you check the rotten tomatoes is right now? And because it's not off the charts. Good for movie getting all these nominations and also some significant liberals hate it the Daily Beast had two different liberal columnists. And these guys are as liberal as possible who just excoriated, but one I want to point out a little long, but see see if people out there can find the particular word that keeps cropping up in this review by Scott Mendelson from Forbes. So pretty prominent source Adam mckay's vices, a seething condemnation of the damage done by the idea that certain folks well dressed white dude's a certain class status are offered. A presumption of. Competence and expertise yet the movie which itself is a cinematic mediocrity that is being hailed as potential Oscar contender partially due to its subject matter and the established pedigree of its white male filmmaker the contradiction doesn't just validate the idea that movies about white dudes are often considered to be of greater critical value than acclaimed movies about white women and minorities that's also acts as a fascinating case in point for movies core message when I heard I heard white played often white it certainly it is again and again and again four times in the first paragraph alone. Rotten tomatoes right now has a sixty seven rating seven percent. That's what it was early this week. Here's what I find. So eighty nine percent went to see. Okay. Because I would have been in that category. It's a curiosity for sure just a curiosity. What is the is? There doesn't know audience until Monday. Right. So this this is critics consensus is sixty seven. Okay. Yeah. So vice take scattershot aim at its targets, but writer director, Adam McKay hits some satisfying bullseye and Christian Bale's transformation is a sight to behold, it is it is. That's the one good thing. I can say about the movie when when I watched it, I could you don't know how many times I sat across the table from him or next to run a plane with him and all of those little mannerisms all those little ticks, Christian bale must have studied every news clip. He could find. Yeah. He did a fantastic job of that. By the way, they mentioned the fairness doctrine, and they said loose, Fox News. I'm thinking they wanted. They wanted the news to be of a certain bent. And that's it because people on the the hard left not liberals, but people in the hard left. They don't want the voices out there. They want to dominate the conversation which we're seeing across the shame. I guess Adam mckay's in that camp mad about it, which which goes back to I was shocked when they of all the cameos did not real cameos because they're actors. Yeah. But you're Roger Ailes. I was I was surprised to see that. Antonin Scalia, really Luntz. Frank low. Frank Luntz is a pretty critical. Yes. I was just I should've kept I should have gone with a list scratch scratch pad. Like, you also evoke the whole the coke brothers were evil the shot from the ground looking up. It's slow motion leave the car and Whittington when the vice president shot Whittington. Oh, yes. A guy and Cheney never apologized. He may not have Polge is politically. But he's I mean, he did everything to take care of Mr. Whittington. Because if you're a hunter any hunter knows this you never shoot across the line or behind the line when you're shooting birds. And that's actually what happened what they showed was that Cheney was sitting in a car and just lifted his gun and shot him or something they were actually bird hunting and Cheney made a stupid error every hundred knows not to do this. You don't follow the birds back behind the line where the hunters are that's off limits for that very reason. It's one of the many chiefs shots of the film. Is also seen of Cheney throwing out the first pitch at a nationals gave out is blowing. Like, what are they have to do with anything right now? It's a cheap shopping. And you know, is the kind of movie we think there may be some truth buried in there or even on the surface. But at that point, I checked out as as someone watch as an audience member because I can't trust them like Michael Moore's movie Fahrenheit eleven nine. There may be some really interesting good nuggets of truth in there. But when you have ADT mixing with his nonsense. I am I am I going to dig through it and say oh good for Adam McKay because he picked out that one little nugget of truth and the rest of its complete nonsense. I've never had. This is like ripping this ripping apart the view, I've never had as much funny. Ripping your partner movies. I'm having to this is cathartic. Oh, it's so cathartic to me. Can I go through some nitpicking stuff that really drove me crazy? Okay. So there there's there's. Speaking of undisclosed locations. So the the one major undisclosed location, which is really everybody in the world knows about it. Nancy, cold, weather, so. After nine eleven. Melt weather was one of the places that we were rebuilding and re securing and making sure that was really prepared for it was developed in the Eisenhower administration to survive a thermonuclear war. It is it is an amazing facility. The public discovered it when a like an American I think it was maybe an American Airlines DC nine or something crashed into the side of the mountain. Wow. Is all these rescue crews. They're like what the hell is this? And so it's the it's the thing of conspiracy theories and everything else. It is where if we had to take the president to do a mash emergency broadcast where we take over the airwaves. You would take the president there. Although modern technology now allows us to do that from Air Force One almost in the air force base in the country. But it is it is a very secure location. Nobody can get their trust me. You can't get in there. So don't don't even try. Get intimated that Cheney. I wanna make sure make sure set this up correctly. The president has been flying around in Air Force One on nine eleven. The president is insisting that he comes back to Washington DC the secret service, the Pentagon, the national Security Council all of us are advising. No, you can't come back until we understand what the threat is at one point Bush. Finally, just says I'm going back. You're going to get me to the PR. Nothing's happened in the past few hours. So the president finally makes his way back to the White House. What the movie sets up is Cheney's not convinced the threat is over because you know, we didn't know whether that third plane or the fourth plane was was going to the White House or to the capitol. And for all we knew there could have been other things, you know, who knows somebody's going to launch a a missile or something. So the president that night he did sleep in the quarters, but they were on guard ready to take him back downstairs to the PR, which they can do secret service can do and just Louis matter of seconds. The movie cited up the Cheney knew that there was still a threat. And if something happened to the White House, he wasn't going back to the naval observatory the vice president's residence, he was going to the undisclosed location, and they were gonna stay up there for at least a week until they knew it was safe to come back. As I watched that. I thought. Wait a minute. Vice president had been there for even an hour. I would have known if he'd been there for a week. I certainly would have known that the vice president never went out there layers affect checkers..

"We all know the chest is involved shoulders are involved in. We know the triceps are involved. I think everybody agrees on that. But not everybody knows that this is also a leg drive using your legs. They're not supposed to be flop in there like kicking around while you're while you're benching they need to be planted hard into the ground and pressing off the ground. And that's why a lot of people put chalk on their back or get like a shirt, that's got some good grip on the back of it. Because if you're pushing hard with your legs, and you're sweating, you can actually like slip on that's how hard you should be pushing with your feet at the same time that you can almost like push yourself off the bench. Scott Mendelson who's? No, he was I think the record holder. I don't think he is anymore for time. Yeah. And he used to have sore legs muscles after competing. That's how much would use his leg drive. And he said he personally has said it's something that a lot of lifters don't utilize is their leg drive. So I mean, you're you're using almost your entire body. It's a full body exercise dementia press if you're doing correctly, if you use all these different muscle groups together and coordinate this time, this you're gonna get so much more power and be lift so much more weight. Yeah. So there's a lot there to absorb. I would absolutely if you're listening go back and take some notes if you haven't already in jot down when all these great tips are, and I I'm certain if you apply them even just a few of them, you get to see an improvement in your overall output and stuff and how much weight you're able to push the bar. But I mean, this is coming from somebody who who has a lot of experience with this. Exercise who who saw applied in competition and saw how effective all these tips can can really be what else another common question. I've gone is how often should you bench. Right. I had great success just benching heavy once a week, and you would do that for three weeks straight. And then you would do what's d- load? You do lighter on that fourth week or you're doing hire reps with with much lighter weight. Then you go heavy again for three weeks straight some guys ad in a second day was at speed day. We talked about we did that sometimes. But I think if you're not competitive, and you're like, I just wanna bench press three hundred pounds. That's my goal. I've been stuck in the two hundreds forever. And I would love to just bench press three hundred pounds one day a goal. I think lifting heavy bench press. Once a week would be great in this report. We put together a three day split for you. It's a Monday Wednesday Friday split. So you only working out lifting weights heavy three days a week. If you wanna do some other stuff on those other days you can. But you gotta be careful not to like burn too. Many calories or use too much energy because this is a strength program. But Monday, we're doing chest and triceps and you do the bench press for five sets of three reps. And you follow that with close grip bench for five sets of five reps and then rolling dumbbell extensions. If you're not sure what those are you.

"We all know the chest is involved shoulders are involved in. We know the triceps are involved. I think everybody agrees on that. But not everybody knows that this is also a leg drive using your legs. They're not supposed to be flop in there like kicking around while you're while you're benching they need to be planted hard into the ground and pressing off the ground. And that's why a lot of people put chalk on their back or get like a shirt, that's got some good grip on the back of it. Because if you're pushing hard with your legs, and you're sweating, you can actually like slip on that's how hard you should be pushing with your feet at the same time that you can almost like push yourself off the bench. Scott Mendelson who's? No, he was I think the record holder. I don't think he is anymore for time. Yeah. And he used to have sore legs muscles after competing. That's how much would use his leg drive. And he said he personally has said it's something that a lot of lifters don't utilize is their leg drive. So I mean, you're you're using almost your entire body. It's a full body exercise dementia press if you're doing correctly, if you use all these different muscle groups together and coordinate this time, this you're gonna get so much more power and be lift so much more weight. Yeah. So there's a lot there to absorb. I would absolutely if you're listening go back and take some notes if you haven't already in jot down when all these great tips are, and I I'm certain if you apply them even just a few of them, you get to see an improvement in your overall output and stuff and how much weight you're able to push the bar. But I mean, this is coming from somebody who who has a lot of experience with this. Exercise who who saw applied in competition and saw how effective all these tips can can really be what else another common question. I've gone is how often should you bench. Right. I had great success just benching heavy once a week, and you would do that for three weeks straight. And then you would do what's d- load?

"Mia, here we go again, and by the way, my my wife was going to see that movie just to support you slash that make me lose. But yeah, so that came in at number eleven, barely missed the top ten another movie that barely missed the top ten. I don't think any of us had a chance in hell at coming close to the top ten. In fact, I don't think any of us had this on any of this right was actually what maybe one of us. None of us had it on our top ten right? Who are Dr Chris, Christie, I, you have. Okay. So. But yeah, crazy rotations, which came into sorry, I thought I, I'm looking at the wrong list apparently go, sorry. No, I didn't have crazy. No one had relations anywhere on any of our Lewis. And it came into the hundred and seventeen million dollars, which is insane insane that made them a twenty. I was actually like kind of frayed that I would trigger the first scandal in. Summer movie, we'd your history by helping to propel crazy rotations Asians into the top ten, seeing how I bought it an entire theater. So I would have contributed a significant percentage. Yeah, yeah. Meech me. But yeah, it is the best performing romantic comedy in six years. According to Scott Mendelson at Forbes, it's doing extremely well. It has incredible eggs. It's it's just dropping very little from week to week and still has quite a ways to go before. It's done at the box office and that makes me extremely happy. So this movie is going to cause other movies and TV shows to be green lit with more diversity in them. I think it reflects the Asian American experience in a way that other movies don't really. And I think it has a unique perspective to offer on it. I'm just very glad that it's making this much money, but yet didn't did not ever imagine it could even come close to top ten and can about this extremely close. Yes. Go ahead. Peter, I don't think it's that we underestimated romantic comedy are underestimating underestimated movie with entire Asian casts for me, at least seeing this movie came on August fifteenth. Yeah, like seemed impossible. Yeah. Yeah, it had like three weeks to to make up the, you know, over one hundred million dollars basically did that. I will say I didn't pick it in part because it's a wrong calm and the timing because Ron, Ron, romantic comedies been a hard sell in theaters lately, and it's like people keep writing these pieces about how the romantic comedy is dead. And then his summer, you know, has been a big lap to the face of that argument with crazy rich Asians, and to all the boys I love before, like all of a sudden everybody's excited about Owen that other one set. Yeah, to Netflix movies and crazy retrievers. And now people are excited about rom coms again. And yeah, we could get sequels too crazy, rich Asians. I highly recommend people read the books because I read the first book before I saw the first movie and they're different that they're different in such fun and interesting ways. And now I'm like on the third book and they're just addictive. There's so much fun if you like those worlds. It's just such a joy to dive into them, and you know, experience characters that Kevin quantum created at the screen raiders really. Beautifully adapted indeed. And yeah, I was really glad to review that with you guys. Also. I was glad to guest on film spotting to review that that film as well really enjoyed it. And so crazy relations coming in at number twelve at the box office this summer with a hundred seventeen million dollars. Number thirteen. This movie actually thought do better than it. Did. I put it as a why was I was going to put a dark horse. It didn't make the list but equalizer to coming in with a hundred and one hundred point, seven million dollars. Peter Saretta put equalizer to darkhorse soda, Christie Pacheco, and so two. And actually for time it seemed as though equalizer would actually be in the top ten, it made more money than mama..

"View of marvel Spiderman, which is the new PS four game. I did a written review in a video review of that. So maybe we can link to that in the show notes. That's one of the things that I was working on spent a lotta time over the past week working on that. And yeah, you can find me slash film and find me on Twitter at Ben pairs. Joining me now is slash foam. Weakened editor, bright omen has going back to me. So we're bringing on talk about two things. The none and captain marvel will stay will save captain marvel for last, the none. The first screenings have happened. The early buzz hit the web a, what are people saying about this conjuring universe movie. Basically that it's not very good. Most of the consensus is that it's the weakest installment of the conjuring universe so far. It does say that things aren't necessarily boring or anything like that, like the movie definitely keeps you engaged. But the problem is is that it's mostly due to a barrage of jump scares that keep coming, really, really cheap, kind of scares. I catch you off guard and there's not a lot of substance with regards to the origin of the none itself. Apparently, most of the story doesn't make a lot of sense, and it just feel even though there's a read the right kind of ambience that director corn hardy brings the proceedings is just not good enough to really feel like it's on par with any of the other conjuring movies, Scott Mendelson on Twitter, said that the nun makes Annabel look like Annabel creation. So that should give you some idea of what kind of spin off where we're dealing with. As far as the quality is concerned. You can read a bunch of the review review quotes from that on top of that calm, will Lincoln the show notes. Let's move onto what everybody I think is probably interested in in that is the the next marvel movie captain marvel Entertainment, Weekly, released their issue this week, giving us a barrage of photos in our first official information on the next marvel cinematic universe film..

Robert Muller says, twelve, Russian intelligence officers have been indicted on hacking charges, deputy attorney. General rod Rosenstein says it involves the 2016 election. There's no allegation in this indictment that any American citizen committed a crime. There's no allegation that the conspiracy change the vote count or affected any election result. Rosenstein says the hacking involve. Pewter networks of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. President Trump was asked earlier in Britain about the Russia investigation of the stupidity going on pure stupidity, but it makes it very hard to do something with Russia, anything you do. So he's going to be a little Russia. He loves Russia. I love the United States, but I love getting along with Russia and China and other countries in response today. The Kremlin firmly denied meddling in the two thousand sixteen US presidential election. I'm Ed Donahue.
