All About the new 'Jurassic World' short film 'Battle at Big Rock'
"New story that I want to talk about as well which which is a PC guy saying this tomorrow night during these et Jurassic world short film Jomie model at Big Rock which I thought was pretty pretty cool but I don't WanNa hear you guys talk about it. Instead of wanting to hear the guy he made it talk about it. Will you please welcome drastic world and the upcoming world three three and indeed the director all the big. Please welcome ah the I just want to thank all of you. I brought my children tonight so thank thank you for introducing them to many new words. I'm so sorry so many questions to answer wants dinner so yes colon thanks to lay down man for everything you were born so listen this short film by the big rock very very exciting. What can you say about what's what happened is so the universal came to us and asked if I wanted to make a short film with their money and I said yes definitely we can put dinosaurs in it and we'll do it and so we're not enough if any last film at the very end we really just change the franchise? Even is as we said all these dinosaurs loose in the world and so it led us a just think about what that really means and take a bit of a step away from our weaponized dinosaurs hybrids and all these things that we've been doing in these in these movies and really just go back to basics and and make a short film about a family campground who just like anyone who's been camping. Sometimes you see a bear going through your garbage and we replaced that with an ceratops yeah. We we go from there because I I've seen a little short films in my life almost every single one of them stand to have a dinosaur and it's you're not the besmirch short films but this is the dream just take a dinosaur and then you're good we list of films that I think what would have been even more amazed ashamed with films that I want to have a dinosaur in them. All Jess I found that amazing movie with Robert Redford all his lawsuit aw I remember watching it incredible movie and I was so ashamed that about two thirds of the way through there could be a Muslim source would be okay with that. I would be alright Robert Redford versus versus the Mosasaurus all along the money would be the most horse tough you never know he's very resourceful so when this we shot in Ireland in January January of last year and we managed to keep it a secret the Irish keep secret added stars Andre Holland who many US probably seen in castle rock if that's out here in Selma is incredible actor Natalie Martinez who is an end of watch and his amazing amazing actress and these two kids that no one's ever seen before who I love so much it was it was like shooting in movie we had five days and we all had to get together with this pretty. Small Irish crew one set and find a way to do something pretty pretty challenging in a short period of time with not same resources that we're used to and everyone was down at the buffet every morning which there's an excellent buffet at this point this out at this hotel in Ireland that we're we're all in this sweet little girl who was in the in the short had never been in anything before and we asked her you know she her mom called and said Bull. I oh I get I get get first class tickets to come out because you're guaranteed a first class taking per guild rules but she really wants her whole family there. Is there anything you can do and I was like well what I do with my my family is usually we'll just we won't take the first class and we'll fly. Everybody and you can fly business if you do that and so she said great and so this van pulls up and just one one after another ten people baby and grandma everybody get out of the van and they were Swedish. There was amazing BEC- it coat from winter in Philadelphia incredible but I'd love to this is happening. Do you think this might spark a trend. Is this something that you would have loved to done and for the first Jurassic World Yeah it is the result of a you know I think it's because our we don't make three movies a year in our franchise and and and we don't even make one movie a year and we're we're a little more old school and that we every three years and we ask people to come and see a dinosaur movie and so it to be able to have something in the middle because the story that we're about to tell in the next film is so different and so large in scope that it was. I just really wanted to do something that was that was just very intimate and small. There are dinosaurs in it but it's a small intimate dinosaur fight. What can you say about where you are with the next Jurassic World World we are? I live here in England and I've been here for three years and we have our our offices out at studios and we've got everyone. They're carving being dinosaurs out of of clay. I can announce here that I have. If any do saw the dark crystal on Netflix John Nolan who did all the animatronic Dr Crystal is going to do our animatronic for us and so he's bringing starting to actually build things in his workshop and seeing what he's able to do with is Enjoin Movement and he's really innovating a really exciting way speaking emphasis on animatronic again there are large and small and we actually have an animatronic in in battle a big rock that was done by legacy by the guys who you know Stan Winston's group before they all have carried on that tradition so we had this the massive allosaurus in Ireland and so everybody was my wife actually took a video of it that I'm sure I'll I'll tweet at some point because there's so much so much fun and energy behind it and that we finally we had this this massive thing that was sticking its head in and out of this camper van spoilers spoiler now but people and and it just this whole crew was actually watching this thing go down and you really feel like you're you're. You're in Jurassic Park when these things really get going and we play music and we play roars really loud so there's there's no element that isn't you know firing on all all cylinders and it's pretty exciting. Everyone applauded and we we felt like we were there. Outside of course in

"Max fury road gotTa Get rid of that arm or if you're enforce comfy gotta get rid of Lieutenant Dan's legs and that was amazing. That was the first first time anybody's ever done really something like that throughout yeah. I had my problems with that movie for sure one of them is I think he way over he. He's like a kidney candy store and way overdid the like and now forces in the White House and using archival footage and sticking forced in it yeah that whole like half hour dialogue L. Augie has with Peter Cushing Ghost who is uncanny but I get it. I get why these filmmakers get excited excited. These really technical wizards get a new technique and they just hammered the guy from industrial light magic when they made the first star wars call it what you will his name was. I think John Dykstra and this motion controlled camera assembly that they created was called Dykstra flex super super groundbreaking and they really did amazing stuff with that well. He's like a legend in this industry now and I saw an interview with them recently and he was like I'm so tired of seeing just whole cities leveled in like just the most amazing stuff. You can possibly think of being done just because we can do it right a a he. He put it really really well. I think it's an embarrassment of riches. You know totally like it can be done so it's being done everybody's doing it's just you know like and it makes it less amazing. not necessarily because it looks bad it just keeps looking better and better every time yeah like if you if you look at Charlie's there and it's prosthetic arm or missing arm yeah compared with Lieutenant. Dan's missing leg looks radically different it does so it's getting better There's just too much of it. I think is the point just to be all Ed Harris the on this no I have long predicted a return to practical effects really starting to happen a little bit more and more yeah I could see starting with indie filmmakers yeah for sure which is funny because finally computer generated effects have trickled down enough yeah like you or I could walk out of the studio and probably get on any one of those Max out there news stuff that ten fifteen years ago yes five five hundred thousand dollars to set up a rig like that yeah and that's how some young filmmakers have got noticed is by making these short films with like zero money on their computer pewter that get a lot of action on Youtube because it looks so amazing and the studio B like sign that person up yeah. I can't remember the guy's name but that's happened a couple the times in recent years the Ed Harris we should talk about a few of the groundbreaking people over the years. Oh yes and we'll go through these little quicker than what we have in front of us. I think we should mention Lon Chaney sure one of the original superstars the film in the silent era the man of a thousand faces he was he was very talented doing his own makeup and changing space That's why it's called the man but thousand faces. He's like here's nine hundred ninety seven. What about Willis O'Brien. He was one of the pioneers of stop motion photography again if feerick California raisins fan you have a lot to thank Willis O'Brien for yeah. He also too stuffy. Did I mean if you look back. He did King Kong in the nineteen thirty-three King Kong yeah and if you look back at this you're like this is this is cool but if you research what was done to create this yes. You're just blown away by it yeah again. Many processes coming together to create that nineteen thirty three version of King Kong and that fight looks excludes still realistic consider the year it looks awesome it does in it's about three three and a half minutes long. King Kong fighting TARANTULAS REX but it took seven weeks to film yeah because there's twenty four frames shot per second in a film that's right and for every frame. They moved the models a little bit here there yeah so that's why it took seven weeks just for that fight scene. I think it was fifty five weeks for all all of the Stop motion photography that was done in that movie. Yeah that's impressive. It really is impressive especially when you realize the trouble they went to when you go back and watch your like this is is pretty nuts yeah ray Harry House and continued the work of Willis O'Brien and very famously in like the fifties and sixties movies like Jason and the argonauts and clash of the Titans Indiaia. Never Medusa sure scary lady yeah that had to be toward the end of his career. I guess 'cause I was in the eighties. Yeah I think like eighty one. Maybe matter the miniature to demand that was cool movie. That was a big movie for me as a kid yeah and I was like when L. A. Law came along. I was like I know that guy. That's right. There's the titans this guy we should shout out millicent Patrick. This is a very interesting story. She was one of the only well first and only women working in special effects back in the day right and she created the very famous mask of the Gill man from creature from the Black Lagoon in the mid nineteen fifties and was unceremoniously fired not just fired stricken from the credits yeah this guy named Bud West more he assisted her and then basically we had her fired rather than give her the credit for the mask which he would take credit for Kazoo think he was the supervisor in charge of effects or costume or something. Oh I thought I guess he assisted assisted her but he was her boss. Yeah Okay but like she very clearly on her own came up with the Gilman for yet the creature and this is only come out in the last like few years they've kind of dug up the original stuff and yeah sexism just basically pushed her out of the industry altogether very sad she starting to get her do now. Though which is good yeah that is very good. There's Dick Smith is amazing. He created the Squibb. Oh really yeah he's. He's a he's a very famous makeup artist. He's really good at making people look aged yeah. He made forty-seven year old. Marlon Brando look much five than the Godfather. Oh yeah yeah he was on. He was a year younger than me Brando. I never thought about that nuts. He really is he also did death becomes her which is one of the all-time time great movie yeah yeah for sure and the Exorcist Yup and scanners and you're seeing ghost story from nineteen eighty-one. Yeah Yeah Very scary movie the old dudes he did he did that what else very famously aged. Dustin Hoffman and little big man by many many years and then in the last like twenty five thirty years Rick Baker and Stan Winston Stan Winston's. He's got my vote yeah. Yeah I mean these two guys were both just creative leaders in the industry and Trail Blazers in the industry and as Ed it says here like a mentor to a generation of special effects employees employees creators artists all three of those Lourdes gig workers Rick Baker American Werewolf in London in Nineteen eighty-one which still holds up the thriller video in Nineteen Ninety-three Star Wars Maas is Louie Cantina. He made all those yeah. Did you know that about the Mas Eisley Cantina chair. I didn't know that he was sing almost single handedly responsible for all of them and then Stan Winston you gotta talk about movies like the thing in Predator in Terminator and they both have set up foundations in schools and things like that Stan Winston also did in the makeup for what I think is maybe the best slash film of all time Friday. The thirteenth part to yeah to was when Jason comes along right. Yes it's Jason before. He got his mask. He gets his mask and three. I think the Friday thirteenth franchises as good as it gets horror movies. I dropped off at a certain point. Did you see see all those no. No I still haven't seen all of them but even just putting like the first five or six up yeah I think it's like watching him again as an adult. I'm like these are really good. Yeah Scherzer films even better than I remember being a kid and the reason Stan Winston filled in for five thirteenth part two is because the guy who did Friday thirteenth the first one. Tom Savini was unavailable. He was off doing creepshow. I believe the Viennese another legend. I think they're redoing creepshow show. Are they okay. I'd watch that different stories. Oh even better I think not mistaken. Bs Savini is well known for being sort of a godfather of Gore he did maniac gives that yeah that was an offshoot rocker movie and then these days there are companies unease Im and and Weta island industrial light magic is Lucas's company and they're cool because they invented this stuff off because Lucas needed stuff to be done that couldn't be done right and he's like go figure out how to do it and they did they really did and then what is Peter Peter Jackson's company. Okay and he's the one that has really pioneered the Mo cap the motion capture techniques where a person's wearing like a suit and the suit it has a bunch of different kennel almost ping pong balls all over it yeah joints in crucial places where the body moves and the actor stunt person in her dancer. Whoever wearing the suit goes through the motions and then it is going through the motions sure and that that those motions that what's captured fed into into a computer and the computer generates a character doing all those same motions creating the performance but it's a computer generated character yeah I don't think he was the first but the the gallon character turn those Lord of the Rings Movies was really one of the first really terrific looking fully. CGI character yeah I found from what I can tell the first full. CGI character ever in a movie you WanNa guess you'll never guess well. I mean it's touted as Indiana Jones and the last crusade crusade wrong really what is it going to be. It's another Spielberg movie. Okay it's young. Sherlock Holmes stained glass night. It comes to life and tries to slash one of them with his sword first full. CGI character in a movie will why I don't know but that's what I could find in nineteen eighty-five well. It says maybe there's it's in the nit picky language because in the last crusade when Walter Donovan's face melts and turns to dust when he drinks from the jealous that's in that's in raiders of the lost. Ark Isn't it. Oh no you're right right. You're saying okay yeah it says here it was the first ever digital composite of a full screen live action image. There's something in a language because what it was a little screen or something this was the Gotcha this is the first CGI but it wasn't the first CGI image. This is the first moving CGI images the first CG. I'm image was in looker. Remember that movie. I totally saw looker yeah. That was a big. HBO's Movie For me for sure same here is is looker runaway. NAH crawl runaways. Tom selleck yeah and Gene Simmons. Yeah that's right. That's all kroll a lot to look looker head Albert Finney Right. If I remember correctly Albert Finney and Susan Dey Susan Dey and Michael Crichton I think that was the first full body three d human but I did not move at static yeah and the very first computer generated effects period funny enough were used to replicate computer under screen so whenever you would see a computer screen in like Westworld or aliens or star wars and they're like what is the Computer GonNa look like you know not now that that was the first time they use computer generated imaging list of yeah make a fake computer screen and the first full. CGI seen ever ever done was in the wrath of Khan which I believe came out in nineteen eighty two but there's a genesis like earth being you know like cooling and turning into ah the earth and there's this amazing shots around it that's all CGI and that was the first one and Tron. I thought for sure tron would have been among the first apparently most of that was animated by humans not computer. That's right the like all the glowing lines all that stuff animated which makes it nuts. What's that they were able to create that yeah. now the big thing. Is the aging technique that they're getting better and better yeah. They really are. Yes so the new Scorsese pick the Irishman I think D- ages in has taken a long time to get out because the.

Talk about this all the time, like I grew up with shows it took you behind the scenes a special effects magazines those in a match ups in a magic man. We didn't hear hanging out one day talking about this. This magazine cost magic which actually it was nothing. But about the behind the scenes special effects in the back of it. They will always you, anybody could order talk costs, a lot of money sometime. Anybody could order like latex. And when you call it. The models are we call it, the, the molds, you could buy molding stuff? Okay. But the armature for stop motion, four computers took over. Yeah, I remember you could buy is and teeth like that.

This is the last question. Go from Whistler the one that John you. It's all on you whistling. Hey, coy. This is actually for the Sunday service, and we were doing it. I'll keep this short. I was listening to the radio and there was a story about comic book writer, Chuck Dixon in summary, has been writing all right, comics, and most recently, though, he said, oh, alt-right comics..

"Because David cross was like these are there to learn. So the fuck and monster goes on Microsoft Encarta? If you don't know what that is. You're young case Basha doesn't know he's twenty two. That means we were at the very fringe of where Microsoft might have been called encyclopedia Encarta back in the encyclopedia. That's what I remember. And see I remember it called encyclopedia Encarta, and it was all the same way. But it was an online encyclopedia that was. Pedia? It was before encyclopedia disc bail updated every couple years. And then they had a free online version. But I remember the disc wants very like fourth grade fifth grade. So that's about the time when you know that would have been common to have, you know, the free online when I don't know when that was. But if that doesn't date me a bit, I don't know. What will I mean? I'm not saying I'm super old. Yeah. But that's a very specific thing like Encarta. Like what the fuck? Oh shit. And I looked it up because it was on the wicket pedia, and they had the whole article there. That's just making that ten years ago. There were still making it. Yeah. Up until two thousand nine they were making the free online encyclopedia that wasn't Wikipedia. But we all know everyone gave the three dollars. And now, that's the only one. But so you have all that together there to learn obviously, the very basic contrast of the two characters that doesn't expand further than kill the Gorgan him murder. Don't be killed and learned that's the really the only thing for these two groups of characters. All right. You're saying the individual cares about groups of characters because the other ones don't fucking matter. Yeah, they're all they're literally like the the other GI Joe characters GI Joe who's the shit. And then you have like fucking snake is who's cool. He's not GI Joe. And I don't even know the rest of them. Correct. Shipwreck Ironsides bulldozer? Eva. No, he man all those other assholes, they don't count. So now, actually though speaking of the toys themselves, though to comment on how they're actually made to getting to the mixture of the puppets. And the computer generate kind of fusion this movie does so it's a mixture of both practical puppetry and CG animation. So STAN Winston was the guy who is in charge of all of of all the puppetry aspects of it. So when you see not this part, which is computer generated when you see the actual toys. That's actually stop right there moving Archer moving like that. That's from STAN Winston, and you may know him from such films as the Terminator Jurassic Park aliens predator iron man, Edward Scissorhands. And most importantly inspector gadget. Because no, he was no. No, he was in charge of all that. So you have kind of one of the most brilliant minds in an actual puppetry making this stuff happened. So you have him and his crew, right? They're doing like test samples, right? There of them playing with toys on various different sticks. Trying to get the motions. Right. Trying to get the walking animations. Right. The talking animations. Right. So they went through a ton of tests and and protocols to try to get these toys to work from a physical standpoint when they were doing the puppetry, and then you go. Okay. Well, you've actually kind of jumped the gun a little bit. And you mentioned the CG looks really good. Well in that really good for the nineties. Let's go and just call it right there. Some of the time it looks really good. If really holds up. Yes. And that's because the computer graphics were done by industrial light and magic that's pretty much. The best of the best. Computer, generated engineer guys were making this movie to match the motions of the puppets. See right there. Little feature at actually special shout out to Andy Maga. He sent me a couple of videos. Yeah. Cluding this one of how they had to map out the toys to look just like the characters. Look, look, exactly like the toys. So they did a lot of these little tests. I saw these little feature. It's very interesting to learn about how they were very set on making the kind of synthesis of those two things come together. Because sometimes you forget actually when I was watching it. I was like oh did going from actual toys to see. Geez. CG to toys toys back and forth..

"It's like a monster being torn apart. It's yeah. It's a cartoon. Yeah. I never thought of it is gross. I never never bothered me. No, absolutely. The same thing here. It's not like seeing human beings get, you know, torture. You know, slashed or gags meeting, especially beaten, it's just like very visceral in like, I take that on as something that could happen to me, maybe, but I'm the same way. This never bothered me at all. Because I would read those magazines, and I would see the like van Goria when they would do those articles on STAN Winston and kind of how it's all done. It never upset me. Yeah. Yeah. Never bothered me. And there's some fairy intense. Stuff happens in this movie. And Karen, she can't watch it. Yeah. She's like is this a part in that she ran out of room. Interesting. What's the what's your best? What's your big moment, monster effects wise, the the whole scene with the the north character Norris character on the table and there? Yeah. Scar bites arms off and then his head like rips off is tour becomes a bear trap. Basically. It's a moment of the movie like in in a movie with a bunch of great gory moments. That's the one that's the one that's always stood out at bites the guy's arms off, and they had a guy that was a w amputate and they had fake arms on the fake arms off seven. He pulled back a guy that actually didn't have arms, and it was just like the weird stumps. And then when his head comes off the table, and it's all the stretchy. Yeah. Tentacles in spider lakes, come out of dude. Just doesn't stop it. Just keeps going. Yeah. Yeah. It it. It really it's he's one up himself constantly in this movie carpenter is or and the the who's guy button. I think teen team. Yeah. Rob voting legend who was only like twenty one or twenty two at the time doing this. I know he was a kid can't end retired like to early like, he's still young. He could be working. I looked up. I mean, he's got a just legendary resume and he's been like well respected in the in the creature community. So I think he did howling right before this. Yeah. Another one of my favorite movies. Uh-huh. Yeah. Fucking unbelievable. I'll another thing that really struck me watching this time was his use of the flares and using flares as practical lighting. Oh, yeah. Which is like a such a cool contrast between all the blue and coldness of everything and then like that bright pink. Yeah. I love it. It's so cool because it creates a bit of a lens flare at the same time. But and yeah, I guess against all that icy sort of white and blue everywhere. The contrast is really really cool. Yeah. Because John carpenter wanted everything to be very muted. And kind of kind of bland looking inside the building and everything outside has either just white or blue and then just to have that hot pink. Yeah. Light of the flares as always. Like kind of shocking thing to see kind of comes out of nowhere because there's no other lights like that in the whole movie, and then sudden pink. Yeah. And he doesn't a lot to using a lot towards the end. Uh-huh..

"I love that about the film. It's okay. Some though the hunting us simplicity to as well, which I think the new one doesn't have the knee one is sprawling way too many carrots too, many things going on this one is just a ferry boil down gang of characters versus navien in the jungle. It's pre- you could sit out in about free sentences. It works pretty well. Fascinating about this film. I think we'll nothing else is this film was destined to be shit. It was destined to be flop, and it came within a hair of being a terrible film. So that the ending of the film was completely different the novelization. If you eat it, you guess let the shape Shifter and he shoots it with his own weapon. Like as a whole different thing and ship blows up. But obviously the original designed for the avian was this sort of scifi lobster thing. With a run leon-claude van Damme inside the suit like a red dwarf was the red version was the one that they see out for the rental. Yeah. Did. Yeah. Curry months red wolf, but it was the red. When we see g doubt appears in the finished film, CG meta. But it was this huge thing. And they all realize it didn't work, and there was a point women tenant showed Russia's the studio and Houston doesn't they shut down production. And at that point, the whole film could have been just deep six right there. And then and then they put in STAN Winston any side the whole thing. But if they had not done that this is a film that would have been on. Everyone's bombshell from blockbuster. We'd never seen it because it came sandwiched in the middle of. So he started off his action phase with Burien, which is deeply deeply weird film. But at times brilliant and at times problematic. How's the world's greatest country? And John Milius and describe well an old does. DVD? We've only he literally just describes happening. He's just gone now. I am.
SyFy Faceoff Special Effects Make Up Artist Walter Welsh Interview
"Hey, listen. All right. Welcome to another addition of talk nerdy to me. Troy Troy. Stagner I have my cogos here. Trevor Cooper. Good morning Selo nerds, and we had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Walter Welsh from season ten and thirteen faceoff how you doing today. Walter. Doing great glad to be here and we're happy to have you told us before we started, if you nothing was off limits. So. Now we're dot to doing thing hard to you. So. Oh, good. Let's start with some some simple stuff. Here. I'm reading some of your history here says you were a college football athlete. Can you tell us a little bit about that? Yeah, I, I played football pretty much most of my life and I eventually went on and played a Juku junior college played for a year and a half there. And so I- tore my ligaments in my hand and decided to hang the cleanup. Can you tell us which juke? Oh, it was. Yeah, I played for Diallo valley college in. California in the bay area. And and what position did you play? I was outside linebacker was kinda like a stud baecker. So I just read quarterback at outside contain. You got to do all the fun stuff. The fun stuff without all the crazy middle responsibility. Yeah. And also says you were into competitive bodybuilding. Yeah, right after I tore my ligaments in my hand, I had to wear a club for for football and that's kinda why stop playing just I don't know how guys can do is really difficult and ended up gaining like a bunch of weight. I- ballooned up to like two hundred eighty pounds, and I just hated the way I looked and someone told me I should try to lose weight by shooting for like a competition. So slowly I walked a bunch of weight and I went from a hundred two hundred eighty pounds to down to like one eighty nine and I competed in bodybuilding. And then I continued to do that for another three or four years for years total. So how'd you make the jump from that to to art because then you've got into some portrait painting, assess. Yeah, I I had always been into art. I took like there was like a college elective course in high school called APR Neha in order to get into that, you had to take our every year. So I usually always took my elective in high school in our elective full of my parents are really artistic. So I kinda, I've been drawing because of them my whole life and my brothers super justic. So we've always been into art and onside decided I was done with sports other than bodybuilding was has always just been like a fun passionate hobby of mine. I follow sport and and I live the lifestyle as far as healthy eating and working out every day, but it was never something I wanted to like do professionally or anything. It was just a goal for me in the gym. Art was something that I've always really loved and wanted to pursue. So when I transferred from diabled alley college, I went to Cal State East Bay and I, I got my Arctic gre- there. And when I was there, I was doing portrait painting and airbrushing and stuff like that. And then once I was doing all the airbrush stuff, I, I actually saw the show face off and to be honest before the show, I didn't know too much about special effects. I knew of like STAN Winston and dick Smith, but I didn't know too much about the grades or any other thing besides those two and the work that like STAN Winston had done in the dick Smith, Donald exorcists and stuff. And from there, I just really started taking passionate and researching and watching things and reading things and kind of all went towards that direction from there.

"I'm pulling my weapon at this point. All right. So now you already ate your eight eight point. STAN Winston, you get four down to score four to midfield to midfield. You get four more downs. That's and your sidelines getting cranky. They didn't appreciate getting burned on that little bit. And then we go down and we, we score really quickly. We like we answer back in eighty six one. We didn't get a two point conversion. Eight to six. All right, we hold them again. There's five seconds left and half before the half, right? They run a play. It's fourth-down turnover and we get the ball back. We call timeout with one second left. All right. They other team starts walking field thinking there was no time. Oh, that was their mistake and they walk off the field and we like, no, we call the time out and they're like, no, you didn't. And we like we did and then the referees, okay, we'll give the time out. So you have one, we get the ball back on the field with one second left. You basically one play before halftime, right? They're all mad because they have to come back out on the field. We throw this crazy play. The kids run all of field. He scores, I got eighty five yard, touch, scrambled egg, rambled, eggs, all over field. Eight and we go up right before halftime. Fourteen to eight. And their love this movie. And they're pissed because the rest let us have that extra play. They didn't hear its call time out or whatever. So it's getting really heated. So we have half time. We go back started third quarter. They get the ball first. They're moving down the field. We get a pick six, no way right out of the gate on second down. So we're up now twenty one to eight. It's good for the good guys looking pretty good right now. We're like, okay, we're going good. So they get the ball back now. They're on their now. Now we're on defense. They're driving down. Our kid goes to pull of flag and the other kid comes up behind him and sort of push them shut down the ground a little bit and twist. The kid gets his angle twisted. Oh no, he's on the ground. At this point. The guy's dad who got hurt, he's longshoremen boy. He looks like a longshoreman. Somebody would not wanna mess with. He's juggernaut without the metal helmet. That's how big this guy is. He's huge. He's on our tape. He starts go out looking at son. He's like that kid push my kid that could push my kid though the coach that yelled out the classless thing. Right, right, right. You weeks ago, he's like, why don't you shut up and get back on the sideline them appoint juggernaut starts running towards towards guy and everyone's like everyone wanted to get front of them. But same time like you don't wanna step in front of a Mack truck motherfucker. You kind of want to act like you're gonna step in front of the Mack truck. And so he got up to the guy and he just shoved him just gave them my word and the guy goes flying back at that point. All hell breaks loose like we're run out to get our guys. We finally get everybody off the field. They had to Jek that father father's on our longshoremen's juggernauts out of there. So juggernauts back in the parking lot. And then the that coach from the other team comes over, starts pointing to other people on our sidelines who were talking trash during the game. He was talking trash boys, these rat. Now, people big pussy and that guy he was trying to restrain himself and all of a sudden his wife goes flying by him jogging. That's why though this was another guy you this. Another guy's wife and she was more like she's smaller than jug or not. But Twi four times minutes juggernaut she was going like it was going to be Jerry Springer. It was really. And so they finally got that restrained every got to the sidelines. The point of the game is this. This is like five minutes, third quarter games. Plenty game left that coach and the other teams like we're done. We're outta here makes his whole. He walked the game. We win by forefeit. Wow. What a pussy, what he wouldn't have done it had they've been winning..

"Even talks about that situation yes no physically but i'm saying in terms of actually wants things get moving when arnold schwarzenegger lands the worst thing he faces is bill paxton actually playing one of those right yeah yeah two other guys basically these punks who aren't any threat at all give him some grief and he has to kill them in gruesome way the moment reese arrives the police are after him through all these places you know why did he land in the wrong spot is that the machines figure that out too i for the film's purposes let's just say it's stacking the deck right so that the terminator looks invincible i mean it works that way i do i think that police chases one that does go on a little a little long to but yeah okay let's let's keep arguing here because here's another thing that i was surprised didn't hold up that well we're some and emphasize some of the special effects stan winston working here and it pains me to criticize anything he does because a legendary career and much of his work i've really appreciated i think the problem here is that there's a huge gap between the effects on schwarzenegger that we see the makeup and those sorts of thing and animatronic agree and the purely animatronic head of the terminator that we get a fair amount it's not like just one throwaway head the whole body yeah well at the very end now where it's more like stop motion harry housing esque yeah i like that like that even totally distract well it didn't distract me because the gap is meant to be big there because we're now down to the skeleton of the elemental frame exactly's different and so there's no uncanny valley we've leapt over it but those moments where we cut from schwarzenegger's actual face to this animatronic had assuming is what it is it's not schwarzenegger that's just it's almost like they're too close and the effects don't quite get us there i don't ever recall having an issue with the shots of schwarzenegger's face i kind of liked all those scenes actually with him working on himself and the right so we agree on that i wanted to argue with you about this and i came prepared only in so far as this is the bad thing about letterbox twitter and all these things you post your reviews ahead of time and then i will occasionally see snippets and i'll start drawing conclusions about things you said and i happen to check letterbox the exact moment or at least in my feet when our friend mary men was responding defending stan winston the effects and i didn't wanna read it 'cause i and we watch terminator it's the top thing in my feed and of course i'm really curious what a brett and josh arguing about so i get a little taste of what you guys are arguing about and i'm like okay i cannot wait to watch this film and think that the effects are pretty awesome for nineteen eightyfour and never end some of them are yes what i will say is i really wish that they just gotten rid of anything involving the color blue and i say that because every moment that there are those lightning crash yeah the electric city around them or the laser blasts in the future those take you out of the moment in a way none of the other effects really do at least for me until the end of the.
