"Pandemic hangover type thing or what, but I'm, you know, mildly excited about the Thor, love and thunder. So I'd put that at number 5 for me. The Elvis movie from baz luhrmann, I'm still really intrigued by I know you have your skepticism when it comes to lower men. But Elvis, I'm going to see what I'm going to see what we've got there. Could be interesting. Here's a really under the radar one that popped up only to me on in my research. And it's Neptune frost, which is coming to theaters June 3. I'm just going to read this description from IndieWire Jude dry. Again, writing on IndieWire, the experimental afrofuturist musical from multidisciplinary artist Saul Williams and anasa Yemen defies categorization, which is what makes it so exciting and confounding. Part contemporary operetta part anarchist sci-fi saga, the dream like tale follows a gender shifting soothsayer and an off the grid hacker enclave as they Dodge the ravages of a senseless resource war. So after I've recovered from men, hopefully I will be ready for Neptune frost, which just sounds possibly quite dazzling. Crimes of the future, the new cronenberg, that's my second most anticipated, of course, which we've mentioned, I think, comes out in June, and then Jordan Peele's nope is at the top of my list. Can not wait. Okay. Well, you said anything could be great, and I was all in on that bubbly optimism, Josh. I was going to adopt it. It was going to be my whole new mantra. Not your right movies on life. Really? So struck a chord and then you mentioned baz luhrmann's Elvis and does not hold does not hold. No, I know I can't go there. My top 5, well, I've got a top four and we've mentioned all of them. So I don't really have a lot to add. If I was going just strictly in order of the movies I most want to see, at number four, I'd have the Miller, 3000 years of longing. Number three men, the Alex Garland film, we're going to talk about next week. Number two, or no, it's really number one. Okay, fine. I'm going to go nope at number two. And yeah, damn it. I'm going Top Gun: Maverick at number one. I mean, at this point, you kind of have to. Yeah, I have to. My number 5 might either be the cronenberg though. Oh man, we talked about horror earlier, body horror makes me makes me squirm even more of course. So I'll be watching that with my eyes closed. I am, of course, very curious about the new Claire Denis as well talked about that a little was Steve procope last week as it's playing the Chicago critics film festival here coming up. The music box is called both sides of the blade. All I need to hear is that Juliet bonos is in it, but then Vincent London in it as well so good in teton. Last year, but maybe Josh, I would go with a little more populous choice. I am intrigued by the gray man, July 15th theaters, streaming on Netflix on the 22nd. I'm seeing some things about how it's supposed to be like Netflix's big tentpole movie of the year, their most expensive movie to date, which doesn't usually give me much confidence, but it comes to us from the Russo brothers and really why I'm excited is that it's a spy movie, which I'm usually a sucker for. Starring Ryan Gosling. You throw in Chris Evans and their former assassins or they formerly worked together at the CIA and now they're tracking each other sort of a cat and mouse game. I like those performers a lot. Add in on a day armus, Regé-Jean Page, who many may remember from the first season of Bridgerton. I have a feeling I will be plopping myself down on the couch if not in the theater around July 22nd to see the gray man on Netflix. And I suppose I have one other question. I'll stick in the art house here and I'll give you one more question, which is, am I ready for a Peter Strickland comedy? Peter Strickland. The filmmaker behind barbarian sound studio behind the duke of burgundy. There might be some elements in both of those films you would describe as humorous. I don't know what they would be, but if I remember someone could possibly pick out a few interesting scenes and then he's got a new film out called flux Gourmet, this is the description. Set at an institute devoted to culinary and alimentary performance. A collective finds itself embroiled in power struggles, artistic vendettas, and gastrointestinal disorders. So going to be a little bit of a head scratcher, as you would expect from Strickland, seems like it might make you a little bit uncomfortable at times as we talk about stomach problems in those gastrointestinal disorders. And yet it's supposed to be funny, Josh. Summer blockbuster sounds like stereotypical summer blockbuster to me. Apparently so those are our top 5 summer movie questions.

"Chicago critics film festival dot com. I mentioned some of those filmmakers real quick. Also, has a film playing and Cooper raif, we, I think, nominated shithouse for golden brick in 2020. And he's got a new film that has gotten some good buzz on the festival circuit playing this festival. As Josh said, you can get more info and buy tickets at Chicago critics film festival dot com. We hope to hear from one of the people who helped curate the fest, a longtime friend of the show, Steve procope next week on the show to dig into the fest lineup a little bit more. A final bit of business. We have another giveaway. 5 digital codes to give away for the new adventure film starring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg. It is uncharted, which is available to own now on digital and will be available on four K Ultra HD Blu-ray and DVD on May 10th. For a chance at one of those digital codes, all you have to do, Josh, send us an email, feedback at film spotting .NET. Put uncharted. In the subject line, and in the body, tell us the definitive Mark Wahlberg performance. There is probably a correct answer to this, no it is not the happening unless maybe it is the happening. That's all you gotta do is tell us the definitive Mark Wahlberg performance, which might be a different thing than the best Mark Wahlberg performance. I'll let listeners wrestle. Wow. Shots thrown at Mark one. You think I'm throwing shots, but that was harmless. I will say this, just last weekend. I was talking with our producer Sam about Wahlberg in the film spotting slack because I keep getting served on Facebook, the video of the scene from the other guys where that was gonna be my pick. That was my pick. The scene where Wahlberg comes to Will Ferrell's house for dinner. And Eva Mendes is Will Ferrell's wife. And she comes out and she acts like and he even describes her as the old ball and chain. He criticizes her outfits. The whole joke of the scene is that Wahlberg can't believe how smoking attractive she is and that she's with that guy Allen, played by Farrell, but they turn it on its head and it's like, he's too good for her. And Mark Wahlberg in that scene. That is the best acting of his career. Okay, I am only bringing this up because this is not lodged in my memory. Totally would have forgotten it. But someone commented on how many years old now, my letterbox review of The Wolf of Wall Street. So I went to look at the comment, somehow that thread had derailed into me and you fighting, I don't know if you remember this. About who was a funnier performer, Leonardo DiCaprio, or Mark Wahlberg. Okay. And you were very down on Mark Wahlberg. I probably hadn't seen the other guys at that point. Maybe not. So I'm glad we have come. We have come to a place of agreement. Mark Wahlberg, very fine actor, best performance the other guys. Yeah. But his low points are much, much lower than DiCaprio's and he also gives us many unintentionally comedic performances. So how do you factor that in, Josh? The question was not, who was the director? Who was the better comedic actor?.

"I wear a $150 slacks. I wear silk shirts. Our $800 suits. Our gold watch our perfect D flawless three carrot ring. I changed cars like other guys changed their shoes. I'm a thief. I've been in prison, all right? So what? I James con there with Tuesday Weld in thief. Michael Mann's 1981 feature directing debut. It has a special 40th anniversary screening in 35 millimeter as part of the upcoming Chicago critics film festival. Thief is definitely one of the great Chicago movies a very good to great directing debut in this fest is one we've highlighted over the years on the show. Tried to put some films on the radars of our listeners who maybe aren't in the Chicago area and for the ones who are and can actually participate and buy a ticket. Hope that maybe they'll come out and see some of these movies, the Chicago critics film fest usually runs in May been going on for 7 or 8 years. They took last year off. They're back this year in November, this month. The 12th through the 14th. And longtime listeners know, we often have Steve broco, come on the show, a programmer, the fest and give his highlights, couldn't have him here in person this year, but that didn't mean we couldn't have him. Leave us a voicemail and share some of the films. He is most excited about this year's fest. Hello Adam and Josh and film spotting faithful. This is Steve procope, film critic at third coast review. I'm also the vice president of the Chicago Film Critics Association and for the purposes of this entry. I am also a programmer at the Chicago critics film festival kicking off Friday November 12th with the directing debut of Maggie Gyllenhaal called the loss daughter starring Olivia Colman an amazing film I don't want to even say anything about. There's lots of mystery. There's lots of strangeness. And I think it's easily an Oscar contender for Coleman. On Saturday, November 13th, we got a couple really neat things, including our 7 o'clock slot. We've got Bernstein's wall by the filmmaker Douglas torola, who brought us a documentary a few years ago about the history of National Lampoon. This is a much different film, but equally informative. And there's obviously lots of great music in it too. Also, that Saturday night at midnight, we are playing a 40th anniversary print 35 millimeter print of thief when we announced this on Twitter recently. We got a very nice note from James Caan, thanking us for playing it. So we're going to consider that our stamp of approval, everyone should come out and see that 35 millimeter print. On Sunday, November 14th, we are playing the film jockey that was a big hit at Sundance this year. It's from a first time director named Clint Bentley. More importantly, it's stars Clifton Collins junior who's usually relegated to being a supporting player. He's a great character actor, very unbelievably reliable, usually the highlight of any movie he's in. This one he's the lead closing out the festival this year with red rocket, the latest film from director Sean baker who whose last film was the Florida project. This film is about a down and out male porn star going back home to try to kick start his life again after basically being tossed out of the industry. It is, it is riotous. It is a lot of fun, a lot of desperate moments in it, but it is a very different movie than Florida project or his film before that tangerine. So could not recommend it more highly. In fact, that movie and our opening night film lost daughter are right now they're the two biggest selling films that we've got just in terms of pre sales..
