L.A.'s Chateau Marmont Is Becoming a Members-Only Club
"Hollywood Tangalle to the shots or Mo monty set to become a members only hotel by twenty twenty, one, the owner Andrey Bellagio announced last week his plan studer and the ninety one year old hotel into an even more exclusive place Monaco's own report bounds who is no stranger to drink or two at the chateau school yards pass more on this story. Because of its geographical location and it's very comfortable accommodations, it really became the Hollywood hotel almost from the beginning of Hollywood. Sure, you'd look into chateau because you needed a bed for the night, but that could mean any number of different things. The Chateau was a hotel synonymous with sex drugs, rock road, death, infamy, madness badness, and depending upon your face and fame, simply the price in position of your room. The subtlest suggestion that will be things were okay. Sir. Just fine. Just sign here. Maybe get some rest. James Dean. Let through the window to begin his audition for rebel without a cause chateau.

With the Black Dailia Boris Karloff and Vincent price than with the area modernism of nine. Hundred. Sixty S Los. Angeles. It was not macrobiotic was not a detox. It was not up at six for a swim. It was still up six for a swim. From the proud sunset boulevard is your approach it. It's not unlike Disney's Cinderella Castle. But one where a night with John Belushi really would convince you that six hundred, nice could talk. So the shadows going members only, and that is a little sad because there is a sort of democracy in the access granted by the price of a Martini and seeing who else is the bar. I saw VESTA stallone and his mum having T to Capri looking a bit too warm at an art party, other discussion with Richard Lewis, comedian and rival of Larry David alone about reverend at the bar.

Maybe it'll stay the spiritual home of that time honored Hollywood hustle. For Monaco? I'm Robert Bound.

Jordan doesn't finish yeah I was a fan of his back from when he played the sort of star quarterback guy in Friday night lights I thought he was excellent in that and really kind of carried the show in the latter seasons I'm a big front analyze fan although the writers strike and went off the rails on the second season in a shorter seasons of the show unfortunately had some some problems some sort of structural problems but here's the front lights and didn't I didn't even know he was in that George you should definitely I think it might I don't know if it's on Hulu or Netflix is definitely out there definitely treatment somewhere you should also watch that you would like that it's you know the movie right front and I like this course right so it's like they made that into a TV show I think

on what they want to be the case is that of what the case necessarily is Craig here we go muck again listen to your podcast after hearing you on Russia a few years ago you have a great show and are now part of my daily routine along with rush will crack I could not be in better company and it's an honor to be a at least in your on your docket to be right alongside the one and only Rush Limbaugh the greatest the greatest in this medium of all time thanks for getting back to being the old block on Monday I mean I'm glad your critical thinking and questioning the experts and governments back prior last Friday your show is getting a woe is us why does get hard for me to listen to but don't worry I still listen I think there's a better way to handle this is shutting down the country across the board hotspots such as and why she had to be contained in manage but to treat other more rural states the middle the country's same does not make sense that's I'm really curious to see how Sweden's cases and up when this is all over may have been a better solution I guess time will tell I pray that the experts make an effort to collect useful data from it so we learn the proper lessons for the future hopefully better risk decisions are made going forget ever back to work I can't imagine what would or will happen if president trump was not the man in charge yeah correct well guys thank you so much I appreciate you staying with me even if I had a couple days that were tough your you gotta remember me here in New York we've been on shut down longer and answering my more intense shut down as well as having really really terrible numbers come out of our health system how many people are dying so it was bad think of it this way it's like I was doing a show about you know our our hurricane and I'm doing the show while the hurricanes going on right where I am right I mean and that's you're gonna have a different view of that hurricane if you're in other parts of the country they're just having some some bad weather which we know can happen right there the storm system can result in in a severe thunderstorms elsewhere but I will I was I'm in the place where the houses are getting blown down if you know what I mean and so that can affect your perception a little bit and animals are right near the center of a lot of where the New York activity is I mean I'm I'm I live close to what you think of is the the most crowded part in some ways the commercial beating heart of the city I'm right here and so I'm really close to that when when and when it goes goes time really saw that all said yeah absolutely and question the experts because now I can see the wrong about some stuff so when the actual amounts I do what I say you're going to die I'm like okay I guess we can shut down for a couple weeks and see where we are and this is extreme but and now it's do we say you're going to die and I'm saying all right but you've been saying that and there's some other stuff I want answers to I think that's a normal a normal progression in normal thought process here and I wish that more people would see it that way but they're people I would prefer to believe it's somehow asking questions means you're unfeeling uncaring and don't don't mind that people are dying which is a horrible thing normal thing for anyone to think that it's obviously terrible thing that we're losing so many people to this virus plus you know we're gonna keep we're gonna keep asking those questions correct so keep listening Nicole you would cover the Colorado fellow being if you're a felon Maria be arrested for playing tee ball in the park with his kid thought I'd like I'd let you know the mayor over reach and our they reached out rather and apologized to the judge and I think they all realize the gross overreach of authority yeah you don't say I work full time from home and the last five years and with all four kids home of the hub still ventures to work it's fun I used to home school my kids so it's a welcome addition but I know it's not for everyone the only thing I don't care for his cooking so many meals a week well we do know that you're adapting so so strongly to the situation a call got here things are going well homeschooling kids been her insurance as some people seem to really like it and some people say that it's very very challenging I don't I have no personal data on this one unless you consider a very willful and very food obsessed French bulldog to be some form of home schooling of a canine but I I have to go only by the data you all give me about how it is to try and help people and I'm sorry help your kids learn Sir we'll see we'll see if that ends up being a bigger move in the home schooling movement has been growing in recent years and I can understand a lot of a lot of the appeal and semi people think because I used to be like well wait a second but you don't don't you need more interaction than the home schooling people I talk to say we still do group sports still take the kids out to play on the soccer team and they still get to do activities with other kids they just get one on one instruction in a in a safe and non league dominated brainwashing environment as I seems like they're good I again I have no experience of this so I can only go on one of going when I'm told that seems like it makes sense to me Brian **** you and more keep me safe and warm at night ever and I was like she was right that and you're going to get into a roll call you're gonna be out the hundreds of other messages and get in a roll call your analogy to an induced coma is good but in this case hello she is not one of the provider team who will have to get us out she is the greedy relative insisting that we make changes to the will before inducing the coma knowing that she can get away with what she wants because the rest of the team just wants to hurry up and get on with the process Brian hi I appreciate that you are leaning leaning far into our analogy here and really making the most of it so there we go I feel like in this thing also if the country were in this this induced coma producer mark would be the like the cousin was in the corner making like cracks like so like when we get the you know when we get to find out where the mistresses here I mean research absolutely I'm always the one to make a joke at the worst possible time yeah you're saying you know Chris rock I got to know him well Jeff Bock a love your show I listen to the day prior on podcasts just before just before Glenn back and rush the four of you should have a TV show called the conservative view just upset the left I'll be a lot of fun actually that the women on the view would lose their minds and rating shield science stays safe

The time you lost watching YouTube ads last year netted Google $15 billion
"The parent company of Gulu reported. Its earnings Monday night here to give us. The highlights is our technology news editor. Boda Boda thanks so much for joining US happy to be here all right so alphabets. Most recent report. Back in October was a bit disappointing. How did they fare this time? if you're Wall Street just slightly more disappointing with some shoots So one thing that was Wall Street was expecting Revenue to be a little a bit higher than it was and operating profits to be a little higher than it was. Now Mind you. Google is wildly profitable and has makes a ton of revenue just in the most recent quarter. Which is the holiday quarter Revenue was up seventeen percent to forty six point one billion so. It's kind of difficult to say that you know Google struggling by any stretch stretch But one thing that Wall Street had pressed alphabet for a long time to be more specific about where it's about where its revenues coming from and one thing that it did really league for the first time is really to break out specifically the youtube business and Google cloud in terms of revenue categories. And one thing that said it for you to the AD business isn't stallone Is Worth about fifteen billion dollars and Google cloud gave details on that as well and the idea is really. The clubmen is really important. because there's a google title is enmeshed in a really really difficult battle with Other cloud providers like Amazon with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft with your and Wall Street was really wanting linked to wanna Google to provide more details and just say like okay. Give us an idea of how well this businesses stooling so we can rate it relative to some of the other competitors this was the first earnings parts and senator betrayed took over as alphabet. CEO from Google Co founder. Larry Page last year. Pichai was obviously formerly the CEO of Google. Is it too early to have expected there to be any changes with his leadership or are we seeing some of this play out because of Him taking the helm so I think one of the things that he he mentioned on the call and this is something that obviously he was with Google so he was an insider very familiar with the business but one thing that at Wall Street analysts basically basically said on a conference call to say we welcome this additional disclosure. Like some of the you know giving a little bit more detail on some of the business units that That comprised like the alphabet machine. So that's one thing that they had pressed Sundar on in the company and the company delivered in that way but you know Sundar more you know big picture wise. One thing that he talked about was you you know he talked about what is investing focuses are and one thing obviously talked about artificial intelligence that being something that the company really wants to deeply invest in and he talked about really the you know the idea of doing more with data and so cloud computing is something that they've pushed a lot on We've reported Sometimes exclusively on the health partnerships to Google's reached. And you know basically Sundar said is we're going to reach even deeper into that So not just project. Nightingale which again is a project to work with essential health and to manage to manage crunch data for millions of patients across the twenty one St Hospital System but identified other partnerships. Like that and another thing that brought third call in kind of pointing to where strategy is going as activision blizzard. The video game company They recently announced a deal where they said okay. Well we want to stream these East sports matches on Youtube. Meanwhile activision will basically invest in US Google's cloud services and also use artificial intelligence tool. So Google wants to say like. Hey we don't want to just manage one thing for one business. We want to be a one stop shop but basically offer a bunch of different services to companies to make the value proposition. A Lot. A lot a better in terms of the Google Health Collaborations that you were mentioning. Is that something that they're already being able to monetize unclear so some of this is you know. They're trying to make an argument that we can add value to what you already do. So in some cases we WANNA manage data That's something that the their services services that Google is providing as part of a package now if a company wants to use Google as a cloud service provider and we WANNA put data in the cloud. That's something that obviously that they're you know. They're they're collecting revenue on There other parts of the alphabet enterprise like verily severely as life sciences company and. What's unique about this? Is they've taken outside. Investment vestment from tamasek which is Singapore's Sovereign Wealth Fund and they've also taken investments from silverlake which is private equity firm in the idea is basically to a look at different ways as to really impact the healthcare system beyond just Beyond just patient data so one of the things that that fairly is doing is they're looking at license engineering research search and as a part of that they're looking at like how how they're one look at additional ways to basically impact the healthcare system so some of this is going to look at Using am to improve drug delivery of some of this is looking at a I to improve clinical trials and the idea is to basically say okay. How can we use data and and a I to basically impact the healthcare system so some of this already having revenue impact for Google? But some of it is. They're making these investments to own these partnerships and basically we see this as a long-term bet that this can drive revenue down the row. These are obviously things. Though that have already garnished a lot of scrutiny. Both from people in the the healthcare community but also from regulators and Looking ahead to twenty twenty one of the things investors. I'm sure will be paying close. Attention to is has the increased scrutiny from regulators on all sorts of fronts so when facebook reported its earnings. They said they expected their growth to slow. Because of new legal measures from California And also in Europe how is alphabet addressing the way that legislation could impact. Its business moving forward. So one thing so so google didn't go They didn't give necessarily a number to say we think we're going to grow twenty percent Next year one thing they said is they kind of went across their business unit to say we think for search. There's going to be ample opportunity going forward. So what does that mean is that is that a lot of money is a lot more money than you're making now is it a little bit less Google basically positioning itself that it thinks it's bizarre that it's various businesses are going to grow And basically they're making investments it's to support that I think with on the Regulatory Front Google definitely said that it's going to cooperate with You know any broad probes inquiries that That it receives from entities like State Attorneys General or the Department of Justice or any or any other entity. And you know a lot of the regulators are looking being at Things that they're looking at you know Google's largest and the and the things that basically make this company so big and you know so it's looking at the the girth of online in advertising business and purported anticompetitive behaviour and in the big picture like Google is basically motoring along in thinking that you know it can man you know it can continue to invest in the business while managing these inquiries you know at the end of market closed today. A ghoul alphabet crossed a trillion dollars market value. Now now it's kind of wavered between their ethnic you reach that earlier this year and then trade at lower but you know the big picture these tech companies are you know for the most part Wall Street is seeing that you know despite everything that's going on in all the noise and all the frustration from regulators and some users you know Wall Street and investors still see these companies as a safe you bet for the most part Wall Street analysts think these companies are going to grow so you know based on company based on public statements and based on. Just you know how large it's GonNa it's GonNa Behar to disrupt Google and search. It's going to be hard to disrupt Google in online advertising just because it has so much of a market leader in so much So much of a installed install customer base. One thing that Google touted on its conference call is that it had a really strong holiday season. And with that you know Google is basically been investing and building out his platforms for consumers. So that you can buy more stuff within Google tools instead of like if you wanted a hotel if you want to book a flight instead of going to other airlines or other hotel pages ages you could just do it all in Google and you wanted. And they've talked about. Hey we want to find opportunities to allow people to make more money within youtube and you know the the the the value proposition for advertisers is great. Because it's like hey if you can get everyone here it just you know. Millions of people use Youtube. Everyday people already here if you can just put more tools and bake more ways that they can make more money inside of this. Why leave it seems like it seems like a good deal? It seems like it's setting themselves up for an even bigger conversation with antitrust just regular though and especially some of the Democratic candidates who've come out saying that they wanNA break up big tack. Did they make any comments about that on their call Not Not not to the extent you know in terms of addressing the inquiries. I think you know usually the companies and Google speaks in broad terms and you know and says hey you know the companies understand that they are targets. And you know they're not you know they see the headlines just as much as everyone else but I think in terms of their focused on The you know the businesses and the value proposition that they offer to consumers and folks and businesses well and you know they see You know they say that they're going to cooperate in any manner with any regulatory pro- which which makes sense but in terms of like going specific in? Hey we're going to change our approach because of Xyz you know for the most part you know the Probes are are just that you know. They're you know the attorneys general and you know folks from the DOJ there on a fact-finding mission. They're trying to understand. Not just google. Oh but from others like what impact Google had in the marketplace especially when in terms when it comes to anti-competitive conduct and you know from Google's perspective obviously there they they see themselves as being able to motor along and you know as these probes circle but for the most part there is. This isn't necessarily changing. How they're going to do their business unless someone tells them you need to change your business because of reasons? XYZ And tell then ample growth our technology news editor vote today. Thank you so much for joining

'Downton Abbey,' 'Breaking Bad,' and Why TV Is Still Jealous of Movies
"Chris. You're here along with Amanda because you know a lot about television and Amanda and I are for a little bit out on television sort of as a general rule. I'm post. TV POST TV separate succession. Now there are some television shows that I love. I started to watch when this weekend that I think is incredibly well made which is called unbelievable but I was just home with my mom for a little while and she while she's a stranger to cable news but she adorable still gets a lot of her news from the newspaper so two days later she'll be like. Did you hear about Joe. Biden and I'll like what what do you mean. Did something new happens you know. Did you hear about this phone. Call and that's just what you did with unbelievable where you were like. I'm breaking to you guys that there's this show well no now. I admit I am one one week late and you've already covered the show on the WOK yeah. We've already covered the sh the show on the site. I just didn't have the time to get to you. I hear you I'm seeing all these movies but one thing that is interesting that it's happening right now is is that I even though the just happened and even though TV is having this incredible boom time I feel like TV is still a little jealous of the movies and we know that because Downton Tanabe rather than comeback as an eight part miniseries has decided to become a full length feature film and the people said. Yes they said Yes to the tune of thirty three million dollars a lot of money for an extension of the Downton Abbey University was a show that was popular and a phenomenon sort of when it started. I believe the first episode of the Hollywood respective podcasts was a recap of the Dow naby premier guess which is just amazing what times past its Niche Butler's Butler's and and and you know that's a show that I liked and I really did you recap Amanda you recap what an amazing time capsule of our life on the Internet in creating culture and now it's a fulling feature feature film which is something that I think twenty years ago it had happened you would have said Downton Abbey really grew up and stepped up to the big leagues in this case. I wonder how you guys feel about what what it means to extend what was once a broadcast. TV Show into movie platform and also like why why this movie work. Why did it work so well. I have a couple of sites and the answer answer of why to turn it into a feature film is money which worked out because it made thirty three million dollars we had a great piece on the ringer last week by writer named Kate Loyd who's based in London and it was he's about the downtown Abbey Economy essentially in how the show changed both tourism in the UK and like she went to a lot of fancy locations and like talk to British these people but also how it changed the British TV industry and down abby the show. Was this wakeup call I think for people in the UK okay that people would from other parts of the world would watch when these costume dramas it was kind of a revival of the costume drama and also had a finance the shows so that they could me distributed around the world and so the piece argues that you know everything from peaky blinders to howards end to all of the things that we now consume and treat as part of the television firmament at least the latest generation of them are a result of Downton Abbey success right that show relaunch yeah Adia so in that way. It's not that surprising to me that it did while because it was like a legitimate phenomenon and we've lived with it for a long time in maybe season six. I wasn't as great as season one but it made a lot of money in a lot of people liked watching it. It's short relief to because the two other big releases over the weekend and that it beat out were ad Astra which was covered at length on this podcast last week and as a movie that I would recommend people see and Rambo last blood. Did you catch up with that Chris. I didn't see I saw ad Astra instead of Rambo because this was not playing anywhere near me. Oh that's a shame why was that I woke neighborhood for you. so neither of those films which are very male centric stallone doesn't play well in. Philly yeah that's a good point you'd think he'd be in every theatre getting but I guess partially one of the the reasons why down succeeded so well is because a lot of women saw this movie and it was the primary opportunity for women at checkout films one week after hustlers dominated the box office and sensing a trend here if you like this happens four five times a year when people are like there are movies for women as well yeah. I think that's true also float yes women see movies. Rah Rah route whatever old people really see movies and the theatres is there is nothing better to do with your time if you got a mom or Gramma Ma than to take them and see the Downton Abbey. That is just wholesome entertainment for everyone so I think that that is as important. The age is as important as the gender breakdown on this one. Let's let's just very quickly. Even though Chris has not seen the downton movie talk about what's good about the downs and movie you and I attempted to recap the film for Chris via slack last week. You feel like we did a good job. Ah Yeah I think so recognized all the names. All the actions made sense I just did they didn't really come together in a sort of visual sentence for me so that is actually a notable spoke to Michael Angler about this. It is a little bit of Downton on steroids. You know the theme music is amplified in such a way that maybe they had three hundred more brass instruments. Mintz played playing the theme song. There's a lot of drone shots of Downton Abbey. It is it is a a muscular rise version of this upstairs downstairs costume drama the film itself did strike me though I think you may have originally said this to me as just one long episode of Downton Abbey to me it was like a Christmas special sel which they do in the UK and I think it was the season two Christmas special of Downton Abbey which is when Matthew and Mary finally get together and like kissing the snow outside outside of the side of the House I would say it's on par with the Christmas special except for like to party set-pieces instead of one as you said and fancier dresses addresses and I guess there's like a first episode climax halfway through the movie and then a second episode kind of bringing everyone home. The thing is downstairs to get into some hijinks and then there's ramifications upstairs. It's crazy what happens on almost like it's upstairs downstairs I thought it was an enjoyable movie and I'm not surprised that it was successful. I'm surprised it was successful. It was also the biggest movie in the history of focus features which just fascinating I have spoken to some people who worked worked on this movie and they have when they acquired the rights to release this movie. They said we have our IP. We have our version of superhero movie and focus features. That's what I was. GonNa say really leans into that older audience that you're talking about the identify women as their audience much more clearly and this is a part of the same strategy so I wouldn't say necessarily the Ad Astra had this problem but I do think that it is near impossible to sell anything anymore without some pre existing kind of awareness of what you're getting when you walk into it just because there's so many options for people that if you just sorta like here's a movie about butlers and rich people story. Michelle dockery people are going to be like I don't know but if it's something that they have this decade long relationship leashes ship with if they have the kind of extra screen relationship that they have they cared about and if there is like I was I was watching a lot of linear television this week because I was with my mom. We were watching the Ken Burns documentary. There was down Abbey stuff sandwich. Every episode of the Ken Burns Documentary Music talking to the country music to let you know it's coming out. Here's the history of the show. Here's a recap of everything that happened. Here's the making of the show like they actually did their push. It just just happened on public television. We didn't see it as much necessarily as like Robert Downey junior driving around in an Audi with a Samsung phone pushing vendors do you think that this is now now a sort of MCI -ation of Downton or is this just a one off thing that they struck gold on this one movie or is there going to be another one have been teasing the sequel for weeks. Now that's yeah yeah they've been talking about how the possibilities open and I think you know which is code for. Yes it will happen and they certainly leave the door open in the movie. Everyone is in in a happy place but more hijinks cannon sue and I'm sure well a Dan. I'm curious how far you can probably only take down into world war. Two 'cause post World War. Two I think all of those states just for their museums museums the economy economy of the upper class in the UK just breaks down and it's just not how upstairs downstairs doesn't really apply as much anymore the film kind of glances at the end to the how much longer can this go on which I thought was an interesting potential way to seal office equal in the end zone dunkirk what we'll talk about this more. Maggie Smith is in this movie Maggie Smith Chris do modify spoil Israel okay. I guess if you are really really strict about spoilers. Turn it off now. Even but Maggie Smith gives a speech that's kind of like a farewell speech but notably nothing actually conclusively happens to whether Maggie Smith math will be in future episodes of down nappy. TV show or something happens to her but then they're like. We'll see what happens yeah she could've done urge becomes iron man. It's incredible credibly. She defeats the end of the movie. It's wild. It's nineteen twenty seven in this movie that's right. They've got like twenty more years. Yeah okay. What's interesting to me about. This is is the movies in theaters. It's an extension of a television show there have been there's been the super sizing of TV shows into movie form a lot over the last year. This isn't the first first time it's happened. In the ninety. s we saw the kind of like met a rift commentary on things by having. Beverly hillbillies movies and Brady Bunch movies now what we have is just a more clear extension of the stories that originally told there was a dead movie earlier. This year was a between two ferns movie also released over the weekend which is not quite the same serialized television but is in the same tradition in a way away and then in October. We have a breaking bad movie called El Camino Dave Dina do this for a long time. They've been dying to get this kind of multiplatform storytelling going because of the amount of money there is if you can actually do what they wanted to do with dark tower where you can tell something that has has a feature presentation that maybe is the sort of the danger of the story but like you have other storylines going on TV and that you could actually create a like twelve month a year sport out of your story. That's why they want you know and now there are different things now.

"stallone" Discussed on NewsRadio 1080 KRLD
"Four six. Have you ever seen the movie cliffhanger with Sylvester Stallone just watching that movie? The other night it had the unusual acting. You might expect from a Stallone action flick. But what really struck me was the opening scene forgotten. How intense it was still owns character was helping female climber. I can't remember the name of the actress. But anyway, she was sliding across a rope from one cliff to the other cliff winter harness came buckled as she fell out of the harnessed alone slid across the rope and grabbed her hand, we have all seen that I got you movie, and so many movies. It's cliche at best except for in this movie instead of rescuing the girl, there's a prolonged sequence where her hand begins to slip out of salons grip finger by finger the whole time, she is screaming. I don't want to die the backdrop behind her looks to be over a mile down to the valley floor. If you haven't seen the movie before you're sitting there waiting for him to grab her with his other hand or somehow save the day. But this movie catches you off guard. Unlike the typical Hollywood happy ending her hand slips all the way out she falls while maintaining contact with Stallone her horrifying scream in the look on her face as she falls, really got my blood pressure going. I'm no actor, but I do say people from falling. Unlock stallone. Nobody has ever slipped out of my hands.

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

Here's how 'Creed II' is a direct sequel to 'Rocky IV'
"Yeah. This is another sequel creed which was a reboot of the rocky franchise came out a few years back with Michael Jordan as the young fighter being trained by rocky Balboa. It was quite good. It was surprisingly good really well directed. The fight action was well stage. Michael Jordan was charismatic in the lead role. This picture doesn't work nearly as well. Instead of rethinking the formulas. The rocky franchise it really just repeats them creed in this case has to fight the son of the Russian ragle dolts Lundgren who had killed freeze father Apollo creed. And whom then rocky beat up in the big final climactic battle of rocky four. And basically this movie is pretty much a repeat of rocky four for a new generation. It's decently done, and Michael beach. Jordan as usual is quite good and Stallone is they're doing his shucks routine as as the elderly rocky again. Film doesn't bring anything new to the table. It just as I say is repetitive. It's interesting to see Dolf Lundgren back as the father of the new Russian fighter. He played. Of course, stray go in the original rocky four, and he still looks pretty good. And he's certainly
