The Little Things Movie Review
"Okay one less title. That's out this week. This went on in theaters and on. Hbo max i believe It's the little things which is a detective thriller. It is both set in the early nineties and feels a little bit like a time. Capsule from early nineties It starts in washington with rami. Malik and jared leto. Three best actor oscar winners. That's kind of a rare sight There it. I enjoyed the throwback quality of it while also thinking it was yet another of the stone cold boomers. We're talking about this week Richard i think you might have enjoyed it. Listen i did even. I didn't like it at all. I really wanted it to be something specific that of that was written in the early nineties. Steven spielberg directed. Imagine so strange are and then. I think clint eastwood was looking at it and deigned veto and finally john lee hancock wrote it decided to make himself twenty seven years later. I wanted it to be kind of one of those nineties. Post silence of the lambs. Serial killer studio thrillers. You know a little grimy kind of silly but like engaging good detective work kind of stuff and it has those trappings but at the center is kind of a weird void at the center. I think it's kind of trying to be about something bigger and fails at that. And so everything else kind of doesn't get its proper do denzel washington's always good rummy. Malik is fine. Jared leto. People people's tolerance level of him certainly varies. And he's really doing a thing you know and i found it engaging for like the first scene and then i was like okay i get it. I don't even more so for me. It was just like it had all these interesting component parts. But the whole didn't really didn't do it for me.
"spielberg" Discussed on Work Matters With Ken Coleman
"This work matters with bestselling author and syndicated talk. Show host. Ken coleman it's wednesday november twenty fifth. I wanna share another story of doing this each day this week. We're going to get through this week. To highlight very well known successful people from different walks of life but to highlight the same things that you deal with they have dealt with. And so today. I let off the program by saying i want to tell you about what you and your story have in common on the greatest storytellers of all time and that storyteller is steven spielberg. Obviously we all know. Indiana jones e. jurassic park saving private ryan schindler's list jaws. The list goes on. And on if i didn't mention your favorite spielberg movie. You get the the drill what you may not know about. Spielberg is that he suffers. And i don't even like these words suffer but it is a challenge now if a family member that struggles with it but he struggles with dyslexia and back when he was in high school. You really know what dyslexia was and how to deal with it and how to come around and see the brilliance of those who are dyslexic but he had poor grades as a result. He got rejected from university of southern california. Not once not twice three times. What's fun about it is. Joe is eventually was awarded an honorary degree and became a trustee later. Yeah he didn't cut it back in the day. There's some rejection folks. How many times have you been told no all right you get. The drill is keep moving. How about failure dropped out of film school that he was eventually readmitted to because he wanted to be a director eventually did finish his degree even though he obviously never needed it about fear and doubt at the age of sixteen he watches lawrence of arabia theaters. Any almost quit his dream of being a filmmaker because he was so intimidated by now looking at a movie through the lens of. I'd like to do that and he was like. I don't know that i could do that. I i must be fantasizing out of my mind. I may have lost my mind. How many of you felt like that before. Haven't you feel like that right now. The dream is clear but then you see other people do. There's no chance i could do this. Steven spielberg felt that way but he kept watching. This is my favorite part of the story. He kept watching. The film. warrants arabian started taking notes so instead of being intimidated by it he started paying attention to okay. If i was going to have a chance to pull this off what what do i think i'd have to be able to to begin to take notes and in breaking the film down and beginning to list out what he would need to do he gets the juice back goes from being fearful doubtful too hopeful and fired up about pride. He attempted to break into comedy with the world war. Two four farce nineteen forty one while the film bombed and he says that he spent the next year feeling sick to his stomach feeling like a total failure. He runs into a young george lucas and tells him how he's feeling. And that's when the story of raiders of the lost ark came to him and that turned into the legendary indiana jones series. One of the most successful men in the history of hollywood one of the greatest storytellers greatest directors to ever get behind. A camera had to deal with rejection failure. Fear doubt and pride. It wasn't an easy path for stephen colbert. Is he genius. Us but did he just show up and declare his genius and everything fell in place for him. No be encouraged. What you're feeling what you're experiencing what you've been through. You're not alone. Here's a great quote to share with you. I love this. He said sometimes it dream. Almost whispers almost whispers. It never shouts. It's very hard to hear. So you have to every day of your life. Be ready to hear what whispers in your ear now. That's his experience. And i don't know if that was my experience. I think sometimes the dream can be really loud and in your face wavenet if you have the courage to see it but i also agree with how he said. It got to pay attention. It's that nudge. I- lovely says here it's whispers in your ear so every day realized got to be ready to hear what the whisper is because what tends to be the loudest in our ears are fear and doubt and pry those nasty enemies. We talk about almost every day on this program. And i think spielberg's absolutely right when those voices are really loud. It's hard to hear but you can do it. There's a way you've got this to it. What's the whisper. So last thought on this because i think what he's saying is so profoundly practical. How do we listen for the whisper. The only way to hear the whisper is to be aware of the noise in our heads and in our hearts of fear and doubt and pride all three connected all three different but they get louder and louder the longer we let them stay in our heads the louder they get and it goes from being a lie to feels looks. Sounds like truth and so when we can identify fear doubt and pride because we are clear. The process i teach stage one. What do i do best work. Do i love to do what results of that of my work. Really make my heart sing. It's that clarity. And that's the truth and when we can identify that we're able to hold the voice of fear. The voice of doubt the voice of pride up to the light of clarity and we go. Oh yeah got the always got me out. Ohio the truth and when we begin to see and feel and act from clarity. We hear the whisper. Clarity quiets the mind and the heart to where we can be present and we can hear the whisper to feel that. Did you see that. I think we wanna do that. That's possible. I'm not sure anybody else is gonna do that if i don't do that. Those are the whispers and you can hear them when your brain and your heart a quieted. From the fact that you are clear and when you're clear you know what you wanna do why you want to do it. You have a general idea to get their. Those whispers are gonna come and that's where the extra concrete clarity comes It's not sports broadcasting kin. It's a different. Kind of radio show in the whispers. Just keep getting more consistent and those whispers become more clear and they become louder because we allow ourselves to be able to see what we cannot see clouded by fear and pride to go.

George Clooney reveals how and why he gifted 14 friends $1 million cash
"Shall we talk about george clooney. I'd love to. I mean it's great stuff. What a joy to wake up on a tuesday morning and just find a profile of george clooney and cheeky magazine. I mean i can't ask for much more in this life First of all this is the man of the year man of the year issue. An annual occurrence for gpo usually accompanied by a party or parties. there's some kind of fun. Dj set online slash than doesn't sound fun. at all. i mean george clooney is just like the de facto celebrity to me. It's just like you've for for me. Just because i love him so much more so than brad pitt. Who is you know. One of our animating figures. Of course their friends part of both their charm. George clooney has always been lovable because of playing doug on er those politics both of which are part of this piece. But i just feel like this was like best case scenario for a celebrity profile. What stood out about it to you. This is slightly awkward as we noted. Your husband wrote this but you know. Just talk about his work. Yeah let me see. I was not involved in this process and just reading it. You know differently than i feel like i know the man who wrote this you sleep. You wanna say through this these interviews were done over. Zoom as the as the peace explains for a number of reasons but for the health and safety of everyone in this time so like they were done in my house on and afterwards i was thinking about the fact that george has such a distinctive voice that i should have just stood outside the door and listened to george clooney talking like through the door. Because i don't think i think act just uses the zoom without headphones for these interviews. I don't think he wants to bring bluetooth into this experience. And screw it up even more. So i i regret not standing outside the door like a creep and listening to george. Clooney talk and i didn't do that so i really. I have no behind the scenes information. I just absolutely charming. And that's why you want from george clooney right you want him to be a like cary grant but for now and i just like a hugely charming informed person that you want to spend time with. I honestly want that more. From george clooney than i want like a movie directed by george clooney at this point or movie starring george clooney. You know there are many movies starring. George clooney that. I really enjoy but i just. I'm happy for him as like capital g capital. See george clooney. And what's nice about. The profile is that he seems to know that too and he's just like let me give you some more george clooney stuff and let me just tell you about how much i love my wife for awhile and let me just tell you how acting works. I thought that stuff was so fascinating. I love it when really talented people just like switch into their genius mode and like i'm gonna tell you this and i'm going to tell you this and he tells a story about e. r. n. Any tells another story and he's just like annotating the scene and it's like talking to someone who knows a ton of stuff. I thought that was fascinating. He shares an anecdote from steven spielberg students. Billboard tells them to stop moving his head so much. And i loved that because doug ross did move his head a lot especially when talking to carol. You assert like trying to like burrow into the moment. And it's like dude. You don't need to your doug fucking rossier water. Attrition your renegade pediatrician. He also so happy that zach got him to talk about the time he gave his fourteen friends. Each one million dollars in cash on honestly the details are so much better than you ever could have hoped for. This story came out. I think like almost two years ago. We talked about it at the time. I think randy gerber shared the information. Right yes and then. I think we talked about it on jam session and zack knew about it. And then zach wanted to ask you about it. So i'm gonna credit usually with that particular. Thank you thank you so much. Thank you so much zach. So george clooney like basically impersonated danny ocean one day. Although i think the other takeaways like owed any ocean it's probably a lot like george clooney and he got a florist ban that he rented for the day and drove to an unnamed location. Downtown los angeles richardson. huge vaults. Like just stacks of cash literally. It's kind of like the way they portrayed the vault in die hard three. you know. there's like all that cash. What i guess the vault i was imagining i skipped ahead. Because there's an ocean's eleven here too but keep telling this story you're doing great. I won't interrupt. He goes down like multiple levels below ground and just gets tons of cash and then puts a a million dollars in two fourteen different to me. Suitcases he says that it's much lighter than you would think. And then he loads it into the van and he drives away then. He gives his friends the money. And yeah the reference. The correlation to ocean eleven is shocking. It's stunning right right. There is like i can see the duffle bags of money notions eleven being carried out of the blasio and it is absolutely that and they also commandeered a swat car that like it's very similarly ban also underground the whole thing is like it's hard to believe it's real george clooney. Actually i made that up. It's not how i did it. And he just was like. This is the antidote. I'm gonna tell. I also surprised because it's like so close to the movie.
The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 2 Released
"Young. Hey thanks for having me. I really like talking about. Star Wars. Yeah, and if you haven't seen Brian every week on the site has has like A. I WANNA call it a recap because I feel he gets much more than a recap. Would you call your your column about the mandatory in every Friday? You know I, kind of call it a review in that it does what I think or it it aims to do what I hope. Good criticism does is just shine lights on aspects of the. The show that people wouldn't have noticed whether that's in the filmmaking or the cinematic references or the mythological references and star wars. So I don't know, I, just call it a review but. Maybe. It's a little bit more depth than that to in this morning's one is like what two thousand words yeah just kept coming and I feel like I still in hit everything. And it's crazy to this year or at least for the first episode. Disney is not providing screeners for press. So you know all of us are actually did you stay up till midnight or did you watch it this morning? No I definitely watch this morning because it didn't come online until midnight Pacific Time which is two am my time and I'm getting too old to do that. I was up at midnight and I watched the thing and I was like I'll just go to bed after I couldn't sleep. I was up till three am just. Checking twitter reading up on things I. I was just like amped up. So bright you saw last right? No. I mean, in my time zone, it's one am in like Brad I'm getting too old for that sort of thing. So I got up at five actually to watch it and well, and I knew if I watched it last night, I was going to sit down in half to write my my review then. Go and I knew I wouldn't sleep. So I got up early in and got it done. Got It over to. To you all as fast as I possibly could. ANYWAYS, we're all on an even keel here. No one gets information ahead of time twenty twenty has sucked. But at least we have new season of the member Orien- right Maybe. It's over lining. I feel like it's the most excited I've been in a long time last night watching that episode Okay. Before you into the heavy spoilers I mean I wouldn't listen to this podcast if you haven't seen the episode so I'd go watch that on Disney right now but before we get to that, let's give our. Thoughts brief reactions and I'll start off by. Saying. This is how you do fan service. Right like Vincent gets bad rap I think that word is kind of used as a derogatory word in in certain ways but it was cool you know to. I feel like a lot of the stuff that was being done in this episode was not references for references sake it was the further story and then like when their work like interesting fan nods and reference it, you kind of have to connect the dots wasn't like. Oh look at that Blah Blah Blah. It wasn't like very obvious about it The production budget felt much bigger than season one for me. I I I. Love that. This was fifty four minutes where most of the season one episode where much shorter I think like most of them are closer to the thirty minutes. I. Guess. So. It was just it was so epic. So Good I. Guess My only negative that I want to say is I th I. Wish I had more of a role in this. Upset he was kind of like. The site I I mean I guess he's always sidekick, but he really didn't have much to do. So but I was really impressed with Jon favreau in what he was able to accomplish here. This is the first time you know he's obviously the creator of the show. He's a writer of the show, but this is the producer, but this is the first time he directed an episode. So Brian, what what are your brief thoughts? So I really loved the cinematic feel of it and it felt very George Lucas Very Spielberg and I'm sure we'll talk about that. Later. But I I'll be honest like I. Sort of as excited I was for what I saw at the ending I was also dismayed And it Kinda left me with like a bittersweet feeling because I've really enjoyed. BOBA FETT being dead. And getting. It's kind of like the feeling that a lot of people had with thinking ray was a nobody and then. J. j.j Abrams comes along. Well I don't I mean like I there was easier for me to swallow like I. Really. You only had years of that right? Like only two years of like thinking about that was the reality. Yeah, we've had a lot longer to to feel that Boba Fett was dead, but I really am appreciative of the fact that they worked in all of the stuff that Chuck Wendy get created around the armor and Cobb Vance to meet the elephants character that really. The that that has been the story for a long time and if they are incorporating that, I'm still not I. Don't know maybe maybe people know other things that I, don't but I'm still holding hope that it's not actually Boba Fett and it's some other random clone but I know that that's a long shot. Yeah. We'll get to that later. Do you have anything else to say in your brief thoughts? Just, it was fun. It was really fun and I haven't had that fun sitting. Had that much fun sitting down and watching something like this in a long time probably since last season well, Nelson's clone wars. Yeah Brad what are your thoughts on the by the way? Are we call this like to exit one or is this chapter nine like they're calling a chapter nine? I mean we'd be calling it both. Okay. Okay. What did you think of Chapter Nine? I realized I ought to fund with I'm I feel like I, wish that maybe it wasn't quite as long because even though it was a good episode I I felt a lot better when the episodes were between like thirty in forty minutes it just makes it feel a little bit breezy. especially since you know even though this season premiere did have some interesting new details to reveal. It felt more like an episode that was from like the middle of a season as opposed to season Premiere only because I didn't feel like that. There was much advancement as far as like the over. Arching plot you know it's like it's it's just a basic. It's like. Well, guess I'm taking this kid back to where you know to his people and you know, and here's another adventure of the week scenario and granted that's. The. Like I said there are big reveals I i. always like. I feel like season premieres should have you know something a little bit bigger and granted you know the whole idea of trying to take down a crate dragon is a big thing. I mean that's that's a big impressive effect that you're not likely to get in an average middle episode even a man to Laura and you know so that was a big deal but I don't know I don't want to say that disappointed because I never bored I still have a lot of fun with it but I guess I was just expecting a little bit more of an advancement with the the serial aspect of the story. That was my main complaint about season one was it was a lot of like. You know mission adventure of the week and it wasn't a lot of like there isn't really much of a overall like cereal plot of the show yet but I'm hoping that kicks into gear the season. What are you guys yet because I don't I don't mind the adventure of the week format necessarily but I just wish that the progress on the overarching stereo part of it was a little bit more media gas in each episode especially since these are very short seasons. You know it's interesting that it kind of depends on the scale you're looking at it from to right like in terms of the mandatory and in his story with seeking out man delorean's to return the asset to its people whether those are Djeddai or other creatures of its kind. It doesn't. It doesn't move the ball forward very much at all but when you pull back and look at the star. Wars universe. What it does with Craig Dragons in Tuscan raiders tattooing and Boba Fett absolutely does move that ball forward. So it's interesting to watch them balance between both those masters that they have to. Work for. I think that's fair. But I but I also think the progress of those balls in question is like I mean, how much? How much deeper are we into star wars lower by spending some extra time with Tuscan raiders in a crate dragon like it's not necessarily hugely revealing stuff that like provides a lot more depth into the Star Wars universe. It's more interesting details of stuff that we were already familiar with. Okay guys we we've got nine minutes which serve ref- reactions. Get into this.
Never Surrender, with Garbled Twistory
"Into Slavery Gabriel Prosser grew to be a strapping young man trained as a blacksmith and learned to read he his brothers and his wife hatched a plan to not only a free themselves from bondage, but all enslaved people in Virginia their plan was to gather more men take over the capitol of Richmond and kill all the white people with the exception of methodists Quakers and the French processor. Would then rule the New Kingdom of Virginia. The plan didn't work. My name's Moxi and this is your brain on facts. Why didn't they Rebel this is a question that should have occurred to every American schoolchild when studying the Civil War and slavery. Why didn't they Rebel the truth of the matter is they did more than one third of the population in the south in the eighteenth Century or enslaved people in the 1943 Book American negro slave revolts historian Herbert aptheker estimated. There were over 250 rebellions of enslaved people in the US between 1619 and 1865 some historians put that number over 300. So rebellion was a lot more common than we were led to believe and even if enslaved people weren't taking apart in an armed Uprising many would fight back in small ways painting food work slowdowns feigning injury. Damaging equipment and so forth the new world had slave rebellions basically as long as there were people enslaved. They're the first documented Rebellion taking place on San Domingo on Christmas Day 1522 some rebellions managed to make it into the history books and pop culture like the seizure of the Amistad when a boat full of kidnapped Africans over through their captors and took control of the ship to both win their freedom and be memorialized in a film by Steven Spielberg. The first recorded slave revolt in the United States happened an hour down the road from me in Gloucester Virginia in 1663. White indentured servants included enslaved Africans in their plan to do away with their master and be free another servant betrayed them and was rewarded with his freedom. It would be nearly twenty-five years as far as we know off. Before the first all black slave revolt which again took place in Virginia. The largest slave rebellion outside the United States was the successful Insurrection of black slaves that overthrew French rule and abolished slavery in Saint domingue establishing the agenda nation of Haiti that proved unequivocally that the enslaved could defeat their captors and live free that precedent frightened and slavers on the mainland suck slave owners actively repressed any sign of rebellion laws dictating when where and how slaves could congregate were enacted to prevent Insurrection and quavo light paranoia. It's the same reason the enslaved were forbidden from learning to read or write words spread ideas and your captives May develop repetto Mania wage medical condition and let this make you grateful your doctor actually had to go to school the mental illness that caused black slaves to want to run away. Yeah, that's what these folks told themselves in case you thought the narrative myth of the happy slave was a recent invention. With Plantation populations under tight control Insurrection would tend to come from the cities or parts of the country where there were lots of small farms rather than one big one. We don't have time today to talk about all three hundred rebellions. We'll just hit on some of the ones that are most likely to make you ask why you're high school history textbook included between zero and one slave rebellion. Well at the same time definitely mentioning white John Brown at Harpers Ferry. Records are a bit spotty for our first subject the Stono Rebellion in South Carolina in 1793. History is colored both by the mouth of the teller and the ear of The Listener with their preconceptions, and we only have one firsthand contemporary account. Early on a late-summer Sunday morning 20 enslaved people gathered near the Stono River Why Sunday morning a recently passed law required all woke up men to carry firearms with them to church on Sunday. So the rebels made their move when the men and at least some of the guns would be elsewhere.

The Filmmakers Dilemma Dark Skin Tones
"April of little some interesting or different today for the this week in photo discussion among with my friend. Chris Fenwick If you have anything to do with final cut pro, you know this guy he he's one of those people that knows final cut pro and editing in general from the inside out backwards and forwards and all that and he's We'll get into that but Chris reached out to me a couple of the about a week or so ago and pose a really interesting question us. He said, you know what? How do you? How do you color ballots for darker skin tones? He was having problems with that and this was this was on the heels of the whole Simone biles controversy with Anti Liebowitz and. All that back and forth of they should hired a black photographer to shoot her or should the photographer shot heard? No or Annie's people? Should they have known how to process and color correct for blacks hint so anyway. So we decided to jump on and have this conversation just talk like you know two people that like this stuff and see if there's a solution or maybe there is no. Solution but Chris, which is these elite editor Ed slice editorial and I'll put the links to all of his stuff in the show notes and the the description for this episode on Youtube but follow him over there. But check out this discussion is pretty. It's pretty interesting. We'll be pretty interesting from the standpoint of just what's wet in the in the real world of color correcting for other humans. We go. Here we go starting to. All right. Chris. Renwick. Welcome to this week in photo man how you doing. Mr Johnson I'm doing well. Yes it's good. The I'm doing really good. You know what we were talking before we started recording. and. I got I. got a page just from chatting just. Before recording. Yeah Yeah where you do your hands. Okay. But always you know you're you're a wealth of information. You're humble about it. Obviously, which is why you get invited to speak at conferences and all this other stuff, and you'd probably have more work than you can deal with. But let's I want to segue into that stuff that that I talked about in the teas color balancing for darker skin tones, Black People Brown people, etc. But before we do that, tell us a little bit about Chris Renwick in slice editorial. In the world and how are you helping keep spinning? I don't think I help keep spinning all. Right. Now. That's that's that's frightening I I'm an editor and I tell people this all the time and they say Fascinating. What are you edit? I added a bunch of stuff you'd never want to watch. It's it's not that it's not that exciting. In the corporate communications corporate branding space. There is tons of work to do most people realize that whether it's photography or video or editorial like I do But frankly most of the stuff I work on, you'd Never WanNa Watch. It's not that exciting. It's a matter of fact I think the people that I make it for you know they're struggling to get their employees to had chip you know but but but the bottom line is it's a living and I've always said that to satisfy your own creative you know thing that you have to do. You're better off. I mean it's good that I don't rely on my job to do that and I'll. I'll tell you. That if you. If you try to be, you know to exude your best you know a Steven Spielberg George. Lucas. When you're doing my job, you're going to be a pain. Because you're GonNa have all these great ideas. I'm not saying the not good ideas, but they're not right for the project that you're working. And so You're better off. You're always better off serving the project and. Most of the stuff that I do, it's ahead he's talking and might be a graphic over shoulder that. Explains what he's talking about but I don't need seven different angles in tight close ups intention like no I don't need that and so if you WanNa do that you should totally do that. But doing on something you're producing and not that you're trying to get paid for. And It's it's just kind of a pet peeve of mine. You know you just keep keep your creative thing to to wear. It's a being asked for and I turned stuff out. That's what we do. It's not not really exciting but like I said, raise the Bill Corp video pays the bills you know keeps keeps keeps the Earth Spin and keeps spinning right there.

Visions For Hollywoods Future with Ruth Carter
"Welcome to our podcast it's where we ask some of the entertainment industry's brightest minds what they do to fix what's broken when production resumes versed up costume designer Ruth Carter she's worked on films like Spike Lee's do the right thing. Steven. Spielberg's Amistad and the upcoming coming to America Sequel and at the Twenty Nine Thousand Nine Academy Awards this happened to her. Black Panther Raw. Nomination. She won for her work on Ryan Koukoulas Black Panther and that made her the first black person to ever win an academy award for costume design. This has been a long time come in. Bike leave. Thank you for my star. I hope this makes you crawl. Carter was also the first black person to be nominated for an academy award for Costume Design Way back in Nineteen ninety-three for Malcolm X. Despite her personal success Carter believes, there's always been something fundamentally wrong in Hollywood I think was built on broken narratives. and think about w griffiths or the nation. It was totally broken narratives and. People bought into it Hook, line and sinker, and that became you know the standard. In Hollywood itself even though stones were were going on people were in red face and black face 'cause there are people behind the scenes. Building those costumes and doing the props and they were people colored doing all kinds of supportive crafts that created the that cinematic events that was not including them. So I. Feel like the the work is to be done still adds shine the light on a lot of these supportive of people not only as directors and producers also as Crespi like myself. Back when Ruth Carter was getting her start in costume design is she didn't have a lot of role models and at a certain point as she progressed in her career Carter realized that she was blazing a trail for others. I wasn't overly concerned about a mentor that looked like me and the beginning because I expected that there wouldn't be any or many I. I look for Kassim designer that I wanted to be like and so I was forging this path of united. Volunteer. At Western costume when it was on melrose and I'd hear the names of costume designers over the loudspeaker being summoned to calls I thought wow that's melena cannon narrow. I've heard of her wow that's an rock I've seen all of her pills and I looked at my role as an artist and I was seeking out other artists as a black woman. I started to realize when work with spy can I started become more of a film student I started in theater There wasn't very much representation in front of the camera and behind the camera and it was you know our quest to create images for in front of the camera that we felt represented our community better and my passion from behind the camera was to say, well, I'm here because Spike Lee said I am the costume designer for his now and now I can take on that leadership as. An artist, but also as a mentor so I always had interns I was an intern I knew the value of internships and it was my hope that there would also even though I was young in the game that there would be another person who was as passionate as I was to reach the top and I I dreamed about like, Wow, what if I were to win the asker like? And tastic would that be And realize after I got on stage a may also before but especially after winning that I was a roll off.

Top 5 Films of 2020 (So Far) / Inception (Nolan
"Welcome to film spotting another week another delay Josh for ten at the latest from Christopher Nolan that film now scheduled for an August twelfth release. It means I guess we can space out these final. Few films are Nolan. A little bit more. Yeah, I suppose it gives us that, but still sad news I mean obviously for both of us for most people one of the most anticipated movies of the year just to keep see it getting pushed back. Yeah, and you have to wonder whether or not August twelfth is realistic with Covid. Nineteen cases spiking all over the country. Nolan's inception, which celebrates its tenth anniversary. This year is as of this recording Josh still scheduled to return to theaters, tenants original slot on July seventeenth. So you have Nolan doing basically what we did. When the pandemic he went to his archive for content, sure and we, we went back to movies. We've for the most part already talked about here on the show. These films do comprise Nolan retrospective what we're calling the Uber Review and it continues with the inception this week. Our podcast listeners. Listeners will hear some listener feedback from our recent Spielberg show, we did a forty fifth anniversary. Sacred Cow Review of jaws, and we power ranked the five decades. Spielberg's directing career just a few weeks ago, before taking a quick break, that was a fun show Josh. And surprisingly we only got a few angry emails about your daring to play Spielberg's nineties output in your last slot number five. Yeah, well sometimes when you're faced with the truth Adam, there's not much more you can say. Yeah I did have at four, so I'm not sure that I'm shielded from all that hatred, either we will get to all that later in the show, but first adamant. I have seen a fair number of new releases this year. Just you know at Home Hey Adam and Josh. This is your former production assistant. Andy Mitchell with a recommendation for your best film of two thousand so far. That film is Sam failures disclosure. Documentary about. Nothing less than the history of cinema and television through the Lens of the transgender community, it may look like a typical activists film, but it plays more like the story of film series that Markelle cousins did a few years ago weaves together clips. From from the silent era today with fascinating reactions from dozens of trans artists. I'm telling you I did not expect to come away from this. Thinking a daytime talk show like Jerry. Springer might have actually been helpful in some way, so check it out. It's streaming now on net flicks. I, hope you give it a watch. Thanks for the show here's hoping for a better back half of twenty twenty, always nice to hear from our former PA Andy Mitchell and a great recommendation there. I know we've both been rushing over the past week to fit in some movies that we hadn't caught up with yet this year. I did make time for disclosure after Andy's recommendation and even though it didn't. Didn't make my top five. I'm with Andy highly recommend the film and he mentioned it almost playing more like a story of film series. I think that's what's so remarkable about the documentary is if Sam Feder had come to me for any advice on how to approach the subject matter. I might have said if you're GONNA. Try to tell the entire history of. transgender representation in cinema you probably either have to pick that lane or pick the lane of telling these more personal stories of the various performers and artists who are following in the wake of that, and who are now carving out their own identities on screen, and how far we've come talk about that evolution with maybe a little bit of that perspective. Josh of course needed, but it would divide. Divide the documentary too much, and somehow it is this absolutely thorough edifying look at the way. Cinema has typically represented transgender identity, but it also reveals these really amazing personal stories of these artists so definitely recommend disclosure available now Netflix and I suppose with that Josh Let's get into our countdown. It has certainly been an odd year, but we feel like we've seen enough movies and certainly more. Small movies, maybe in terms of the big Hollywood releases. We haven't been able to get out to the theater. That's for sure, but it's really been a boon for video on demand opportunities, and for seeing a lot of movies that would fit into our golden brick type of category I have three potential golden bricks among my top five, so movies made by new. New Directors or new to US director. Is that similar for you? Yeah I think that's what's had the most effect on my left. Compared to previous years, which is a good thing you know we. We do our best to give attention to these smaller films and this strange year without major theatrical releases. We've been able to do even more of that so i. I think this list would probably look a little different If there had been the usual theatrical release date, but I still feel really good about the films that I have on my list, and it's going to be a mix of some. We've talked about even reviewed together on the show Adam and a few a couple that we haven't

There's two ways to go about this I think initially we both thought just of look at the filmography, and and get on the mic and kind of riff where we think things are, or you sit down and chart things you move them around. You have tears. Which of course is what I think? We both ended up doing so yeah. It was a little bit more of a project than I anticipated, but a rewarding one. Yeah, I put in the work on it. Because I knew it was going to be hard enough deciding which decade put first. and which would slot right behind it? I didn't think it would be so hard with the other decades actually, and then after spending a good deal of time on it I actually ended up flipping two decades around that I thought were set in stone.

Just give us a little wiggle room. Here I'm pretty confident, were both more excited to talk about Steven Spielberg's camera tricks then his politics, but it's a little. Little Eerie how prescient his game changing nineteen seventy-five blockbuster is forty five years later. The movie The promise will never go in the water again also presents an all too dangerously familiar type of huckster politician, a crisis who fails to heed the warnings of scientists dramatically downplays and dismisses the potential loss of life can't wait to pat himself, and his cronies on the back loves to PREEN FOR A TV camera and who demands those beaches be open because business demands. They be open. Sorry even the scary shark movie is actually about Corona.

"You. Grew up acting. When did you know that this was for you? I knew from a very early age that I loved to perform. I was always singing because I'm a singer. I always had music on the radio. That was my first love. Actually I also used to watch lot of television because you know. We lived in the Bronx and Spanish Harlem, so my mother was not like letting us out some. certain times the neighborhood. We get tricky, so she was like no in my out. Or whatever and so I, watch them on television. That was my friend. I watched movies girl, so I used to I was so pulled in by movies, and then I have my my aunt, my the-they who? Is such a hero in my life. She was always taking us to movies. Song Forget. UH, she said, drop us off at the movie theater me and my presence, and she'll be like I'll be back five PM to pick you up that she felt bad for us. Abuse stuck in us from weren't allowed to hang outside. So, we would be at the movie theater. Day those days you go from one theater to one movie to another you know at then I saw funny girl, my my my d. c., funny girl and I just fell in love with Barbara streisand and how she was singing and acting. And that was it. That was it I knew I wanted to do. What do you mark as your big break? You know what my big break was a film that I did all I like him. that was my big because I like it like that and I think there was a big break for all of us in that gnome, it was a small film that became like a cult film that became huge, and so I pretty much soon after that I got signed a deal to Aden, C., which led to my semen Silbert show that was my i. like big, lead role on a network primetime television show that Steven Spielberg for. Do you Steven Spielberg Rating? You Fan Fan Mail. Did that's surreal, please? I? Thought they sent it to the wrong guy This must be a somebody else. I couldn't believe it. I mean I still have it up on. My Wall is one of my proudest moments, and I always. Love Steven Spielberg Right, but I thought it was interesting to that when you got that spinoff. And you were really going to be carrying a pilot that there was a little piece of you that worried. Can I carry this pilot? Right like that is a different level of pressure to be like this show will succeed or fail, and you're not like the fourth or fifth person down in the credits it is you. Well Yeah I mean they brought Blair underwood in and our characters just exploded on the show. You know we became a hot. Partnership shelves some Cups Yeah you know I think. I. Think when you go from a guest star. else doing these kinds of roles or even a recurring character writing comes in now. Maybe you do three episodes. Maybe you do five episodes whatever? When you come to the place of a lead. And they're they're absolutely is a whole new level of responsibility, and absolutely without a doubt there is that you know that little bit of light on my Gosh when I do this, but. That's when you. Really embrace you towns, and and recognize the you are and say. Yes I can do this. Yes, this belongs to me on here. Because this was supposed to happen and it's it's a battle right because we had that little devil on one side, a little angel on the other who they talk into each year, and so we consist. That's why that's why training is so important. That's why understanding the process of creating a character be prepared preparation. Discipline Professionalism. All of that comes into play. So that, you're standing on solid ground and you have foundation when you come into that position, you know what you're doing. I was looking through your IMDB. Have you ever played a non Latina character? I have there been a few of those roles were actually white. Jane. That was written white. Gabrielle and I have the same representation, and they sent me the script and I got a meeting with Martin Brock. Akil and she was like I know Lisa's work. And we sat down for three hours and talked about Cara and. She's like I want you to be my car. It also shows you the value of having a person of color. Be The other person on the other side of that table. Right like the heels would get that absolute asks. They are so fro. You know black and Brown. Absolute.

"Daddy okay. Hook the nineteen ninety-one cult favorite reimagining of a Peter. Pan Lor starring Robin Williams. And Don Bosco you are. I'm just GONNA cut right to an icon. Come on come on man and you have been ever since this this role Rubio and we have so many questions for you. But we're going to start is what has revealed meant to you over. The course of the time. I mean is changed over the years. I did Rouphael when I was fifteen. Start when I was ten before was an actor. I was I'm from me and my brothers from the bay area right. And we're all artists and actors and musicians and poets and we start as break group in the Bay. Area called Street freaks. We popular was in the bay area. Kid You know grew up going to forty niners games in Oakland as games and we ended up dancing for the forty niners and the Oakland A.'s. Halftime shows thirty. Four thousand six hundred that kind of stuff then. We got scholarships the Ballet Company ballet and so we start studying ballet and it was like a real billion Elliott thing kids from St that they picked up and start the world ours and so like being an actor. Artists has been in my family's story since my earliest memories of whatever we were doing you know and so by the time I was fifteen and did hook it was like I mean I was you know somewhat prepared for it because I was studying acting for so long and studying the greats and then I was very much whereas work with greats worked with Spielberg maybe at the height of his powers. Dustin Hoffman is. He's on the Mount Rushmore of the actors. That changed the face of acting the seventy S and whatnot. You Got Robin. Williams is the Godfather improv acting. In one of the great you know give me. The list goes on Maggie. Smith said Bob. Hoskins is like every day is like what's going on here and so I was really prepared to just really do a great job but that never prepares you for character lasting twenty five years later. It's like now I've been Rubio longer than I haven't been Rubio. You know so you know you walk around. And now it's like it means something different to a whole generation as people tattoos of your fifteen year old face on their body crazy. Which you've seen with your I've seen with my own eyes. I've signed people's bodies at kamikaze tattooed on you know. And they name their kids after Rubio and their dogs after Rubio and it means something to just the people at large as far as like this rebel spirit you know and then in mean something completely different to a whole generation of Asian Americans where I get a lot of like. You're the first cool Asian that I ever saw on television as exactly what I was about to say. It's you and I'm dismayed that you hear so often not here and again when you're young you don't really think about it when you big movie in your teenager like even though I was like a trained actor and a pretty solid artists at fifteen is like I just WanNa be cool like plea at the for. The love of God can come out on Friday in theaters and when I go to school on Monday. Ken like some people. Think I'm cool. Where are you going to school at that point in in southern California I was going to school in Southern California? I was in high school Limit town called paramount. And it's right. You know right next to Compton. The crazy thing was this is the nineties s in we got into some trouble me and my brothers in the middle of shooting Hook. We got caught shoplifting. At Serena's mall yes. I needed some isotoner gloves. We needed some isotoner. Glove would use gloves and southern California. I don't know Jerry Rice War on I duNno had some is anyway. We got caught. My parents got so and again when you grown up in the neighborhood and paramount which is like site content but it's more Mexican than black and it's you know gang violence in the nineties and we have friends run drugs. Everything's a lot going on in your young mind like shoplifting is nowhere near anything else going on a neighbor but we got popped. We got in trouble and I was actually in the middle of shooting. Hook which is super strange and the guy that Catis history does mall was like watching. Because he'd seen me in a movie called perfect weapon he's like that's that do from perfect weapon and then. Oh my God. He's they're stealing isotoner gloves So we ended up getting bused to Orange County and started and finished our school at Orange County. The and then I was there when the hook came out. So it's kind like I was a kid in school and the movie came out and I went from a school. I was like predominantly black and Latino to a school in Orange County. That was I think there was twelve black kids in school And like it was like predominantly white. We were like. What are we doing here so that was a school that was that you were in? Hook was coming. Yeah that was I was in when he came out and I was. They thought it was cool. I mean we were cool are here with me and my brother like three. Brown brothers walking around campus with high hair and Super Hip hop kids and then the big movie comes out. And you're like that kid from that movie.

"Right you're about the real old actually just like some of the biro he's already shot for the kidnapping of of our virata or whatever it's called let's cut to the chase yeah let's let's talk about some of these movies i want to start with your number five what he got my number five favorite steven spielberg movie speaking of spectacle address park i released it recently one of the things that really jumps out when you see it is just how lean it actually is the philosophy and the sort of the themes of the movie are really woven into a very tight escape story it is very much a lean middleweight fighter and that sort of you don't really think about that because when you think about these spectacles that we see these days you're transformers movies your vendors moves you think of bloat you think of like very very very long set pieces in which the world crumbles this is actually like to movie about a park it's kind of like a three or four hander really not it's it's really really tight it still goes so hard you are still so emotionally rapped up in everything that happens everybody in it is delightful it's perfectly cast and i still think it has like the best version of spielberg wonder face which is when a character in a spielberg movie comes across something amazing he captures wonder in a way that no other filmmaker really ever has and there's several shots most famously sam neill turning laura dern head towards the brontosaurus which i think is one of the great shots of my of my actual movie going experience listening to you talk about it i feel like laura dern with her head down on the breathing dried certain triceratops drowsy park is wonderful it's also in my top five i think it is kind of the perfect middle ground the the median point of spielberg's career it's basically right when he was in his late forties early fifties when it's made it is both spectacle and about childhood and about humanity and about the mistakes that we make and how we can solve them it's also.
