Viggo Mortensen on new movie 'Falling'

"This is popcorn when we talk about. What's out there at the movies. There's a movie out there now. Called falling vigo mortenson. My guest is starring in it with this time in this movie falling. He also directs. It's the first time it's his feature directing debut and it's in many ways at top story but it's vigo to me. It's him saying. I'm going to take this on and see what happens. And what happens is so incredibly moving so figo. Welcome good to have you. Thanks is wonderful to see again. What i can't say. What attracted you to this because you wrote. This is something that came out of your own head and it feels very personal to me. But i don't know just help personnel. This it is personal but it's also I mean it's largely a fiction fictional family but the foundation of it is feelings. I have for my mother especially but by connection to my father as well into my childhood and adolescence so there are elements of truth. As far as i remember an memory subjected that after do with my upbringing and even with the aspect of dementia that that's dealt within the story. I've had a lot of experience with that. Both my parents stepfather grandparents. I've seen it up close in a caregiver. And it's something i wanted to explore. I wanted to explore the limits if there are any communication especially with people that you have a hard time communicating with other. I wanted to just more than anything asks questions. Rather than give answers. Ask myself questions and maybe half the audience are the people that you can't communicate with our the people. Obviously there are people that want to communicate with are there. People don't deserve to be communicated with or listen to i personally. Don't think so. But as person makes their own decision about that. It's i wanted to look fine. I wanted to explore the idea of empathy of communication and closer. We've gotten to the release of this movie. Which is february fifth. Us canada unexpectedly an away. Unfortunately this movie and the polarization the conflicts with this family that it deals with problems of communication are more timely than ever. Well i mean we come in the way i see admit point even low. Your movie is there's a great many flashbacks. And i should just say up front. That basically you're playing a gay man with a father who is suddenly hit by the ravages of dementia. It may even early onset and yet through the flashbacks in what we say we see. This man has always been difficult. He's been more than a handful. You know he's a racist in him. There's a person who can be a bowling and yet through the flashbacks to we see that he's capable of love. He's hard to take and yet we feel that we haven't seen except toward the end of the movie. What it was like when your character decides. I'm not gonna play at his wet. I'm going to try to give something. That is empathetic rather than something. That's hostile john. Is that yard. You're in sub it in your own life when you dealt with now in. My father wasn't anywhere near as difficult to deal with. We had better communication than john willis do in this story though sunan father but but my father was a man of his generation. He was not american use denmark but he was raised on a farm born during the depression went through the german occupation during world. War two ran away from home when he was fourteen You know self taught person who then eventually after he married. My mother moved the united states. He somehow got into business. School finished it in half the time by doing night courses nine. Just a determined person. Very self reliant. But like many men of that generation he was kind of even in his gentlest moments. A my way or the highway kind of guy. And that's just the way it was. And then you didn't adapt to changing times that well either the sixties the seventies is like what the hell's going on from their point of view. Why can't things just be the way they should be in. Men and women are women all that stuff and so there was a bit of that on my dad but but he was nowhere near as it was not as much of a conflict as you as i depicted in the movie. It's a fiction as i say this story. Even those became a father son story a basically the moral conscience to like the the the the fulcrum emotionally morally of the story really is is the mother for me. Is gwen by hannah. Gross the inspiration and the reason that they argue a lot. You know both father and son and also father and daughter. My sister played by laura. Linney the bone of contention. Is gwen a lot. So that was an important role and i. I guess that character resembles my mother and my relationship with that character in in the movie is more like my relationship with my mother than than the relationship with the father's like my own father. There's there's a lot of you that i see in this character in terms of how you play it and also how you directed wrote it which is nature of you know we see this man. He grew up in loved the farm. He loved it. He related to the horses to the answers like you. you know. there's something about nature where the best of him somehow is shown when he's with these animals he can't seem to rang. The embassy has them to is actual family which people in general yeah. It's just kind of tragic when it is said it is said and you know it's no accident that the first third of the movie threaded through it is this sequence that has to do with the duck the sequence of events right from seeing it shooting it bathing when it's sleeping with plucking cooking it and then finally you know eating it sharing it that way. let's that john that grows up to be your character of sleep. Was the dead duck. He lets him do that. He does some well. Yeah that whole thing. The story was away to introduce among things. What you're talking about the relationship that that family has with nature expos with life and death and all that would nature you. You all grow up for time on on a farm. I grew up in part. I bo bo cities and farms. I mean i learned to ride horses. When i was really little when i when i could walk and And my dad was someone who was raised on a farm And he introduced me and my brothers at the earliest possible age to campaign to know how to make a fire to forests and rivers and animals and fishing and hunting. And all those things. So i was very much part of my

"Redirect police funding. Here's number two again. We saw the tweet the streets on a joke. It'd manipulators Biden Street after these two L. A deputies were shot. He says. Weapons of war have no place in our community doesn't mean anything. Weapons of war folks. It's just a focus group tested word radical liberals use when they don't want to say anything. We need to ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines. Which will by the way that means rifles and standard capacity magazines. For those, you don't speak liberal or Joe Biden. Assault weapons is a meaningless term. It doesn't There's no perimeter around that it doesn't mean anything. It's like it's talking about a truck and then you mean a car. Why don't you set a car that looks like a truck hit me A truck means anything. That's what you say when you say assault weapons because there's no not assault weapons. Just like when you talk about a truck. There are non trucks, right bikes, cars and you have you have characteristics of those things that make it a truck. That's why it's a category. Well on assault weapons supposed to be a category because you want to ban it? Well, what's a non assault weapon, The others nothing. Everything's an assault weapon of that's why they used these terms. Weapons of war. High capacity magazines. What he means is standard capacity magazines. Which means you will in fact, be the song. Ladies and gentlemen, again these air his words, they're not mine. I'm not hypothesizing. I'm not adding anything to it. I'm simply reading to you what he is what he's tweeted out on his social media account. Or whoever's managing his brain on any given day and in replaying his own words in an interview. Money away from the cops. Firearms away from you sounds very safe. Good luck, folks. Gonna be living through that Viggo Mortensen movie the road soon, but he goes in the basement already screaming. I They're missing limbs. It's like watch time you watch the movie. You know what I'm talking about? That'll be next in the Biden administration. No firearms. No cops either. Good luck with that. Maybe not. No cops to be fair to him. Less cops and less money. No, no, He was just lying when he said that. Oh, Okay. Sorry. Finally again, Here's the evidence. Here is 10 to 3. Let's bail out all the criminals and bad guys here is his vice president. Actually, she's actually running for president, but he knows Biden's not there. Ah, Kamala Harris, if you're able to chip in now to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, help post bail for those protest thing on the ground in Minnesota, so just to be clear he's soon to be president. If they win. Kamala Harris. God forbid. Buyten's are gonna be president again. Harris Pied administration wants you to bail out. Is one of our old tweets. She hasn't deleted it by the way. The people who burned down the city of Minnesota. That's fascinating. Because Minnesota, CBS, the local, CBS, not the national, CBS, These are actual local reporters on the ground had this article up I saw which was fascinating. Lionel Tim's accused in another serious assault. After being bailed out by the Minnesota Freedom Fund. I wonder if that was one of Kamala Harris is dollars that went there to bail out Lionel Tim's accused in a quote another serious assault after being bailed out by the Kamala Harris crew. This is your soon to be president in waiting if she wins. You like that plan? No firearms for you Less cops for you, too. Let's bail out the bad guys to beat the snot out of you. So you can't defend yourself, but even better if you do, let's prosecute you like that lunatic and ST Louis who prosecuted the McCloskey's for daring to defend their property. If they're violent protesters bashed down a gate to a private street and threatened to attack them. Yes, sounds very safe. Good block. Dan Bongino show 20 years Millions of customers.

"Just after the show. Thank you for sending in 1877 Doctor Dolly! 1877 Deal. See D a l Y for those, You jeopardy lovers out there. Alex Trebek says he's still Staying strong. He's still doing well. Many of us have been kind of nervous about him after hearing the loss of Kelly Preston with breast cancer and Elvis's grandson dying of Ah, believe self inflicted was suicide was a gunshot wound. We had some celebrity deaths. People have been kind of wondering, you know, how's everybody else doing? Who's been fighting cancer like a living John Shannen Doherty? Alex Trebek is fighting prostate cancer. He kind of gave everybody an update that he's doing okay, so You know, we're still fighting strong. Pancreatic cancer is one hell of a son of a Son of a gun. Sort of. Ah, Um ah, cancer and it's It's definitely not easy and, you know, way. See people such as Ruth Ginsburg, who blessing Lee does well. And, you know, survives fantastically and then we have others like Steve Jobs. And, uh, Patrick Swayze E. Who? Michael Landon, who? Unfortunately, you know, you know, succumb to it very, very quickly. So it's not a It's not not a very easy fight. So prayers first to him. Okay, so I love Lord of the rings and the eye of Mordor. Or you guys remember was a big guy and you didn't want to wake up the I and every time you put on the ring You know, Tio go. Um, invisible. The I would like to get all of you know, guys when I was younger when, when Lord of the Rings on? I still wasn't adult when more of the rings came out, but I was still like, you know, all kind of scared. The eye of mortar scares me and I still have that, in fact, even in my dreams. I have nightmares where I wake up the eye of Mordor and I just want to like, stick a contact lens that's backwards in it sometimes, but with Cove, it I used that analogy because I'm not very good with analogies. If you guys have noticed all these years, I really, really suck at it. But Went that analogy of Lord of the Rings in order for them, Tio I forget the city of the walls or mortar was it was it just called the city mortar, But you guys will tell me. I'm sure it's some more of the rings person. Well, tell me what it was the city mortar. Okay, Good. Thanks, Red. Four door. Yeah, So while photo and and and Samwise had to go and drop the ring in the fire with the kind of Spiegel guy you know, trying to eat there eats, you know and mess with them or whatever, Thie, you know, vehicle Morrison, who was very, very sexy and you could see his chest And, you know, he looked like he really, really needed a shower, which I wouldn't mind helping him deal. He had to leave the army with Legolas into the more door. City and they needed the eye of mortar. Reflected or deflected. They needed the eye of mortar distracted, so they had to, actually no, no, no, no. The I'm order had to be distracted. So photo can throw the ring into the fire pit. So Viggo Mortensen had to distract. Take vehicle. Morris's big distracted. Look at this. I'm just thinking about it, and I'm messing up this whole segment Love Yugo. So good for Aragorn. He and Legolas did amazing of the dwarf, and it was fantastic. Okay? And then Gandalf the gray or white or whatever my guess is Gandalf. The grey happened because Gandalf the White Well, no Gandalf, the white got a new hair dye, and they're like, Well, if you really look better without the streaks in the highlights were goingto make again off the white and it kind of did a Donald Trump where instead of, you know, doing hair dye Now we just want white. You know, with this hair so pretty sexy. I thought I thought Gandalf the White was pretty sexy, but not a sixties. Viggo Mortensen. So call vid. Is now kind of playing around with the idea of order. So here we are concentrating on Cove it everything's about Cove. It Hey, I'm I've been telling you guys get your heart checked. I've been telling you to get diabetes checked, kids need to still go in and get their vaccines. Now it's all back of it. Everybody in this country. Is under the impression That if they go outside the house or vigor with doctor's office, or they do anything else that's not covert related. It's bad. And its anti society and it's whatever So right now, it's just all that covered. I'm sick of it. I am so sick of talking about Cove it you guys are probably sick of it, which is called this cover that cover this. Well, we're kind of in summer. McGee season right now. Now, what are we supposed to be dealing with now? And the summer in the muddy sea? We're supposed to be dealing with heat illness and you know some hurricanes and you know, swim issues. And you know these are things that unfortunately we deal with, but a big issue we have are mosquitoes. Now, Myskina's are very resilient. Wiley Smart. Little stinkers that like to carry disease. They do a suck blow mechanism. So they land on you. They inject you. They blow a little Anesthesia. In you. So you don't know you have a mosquito on you. I really like that in a season. I'd like to get some more of that because I could definitely handled my surgeries a lot better with that sort of anesthesia. You want pain control led a whole bunch of mosquitoes jump on you. I don't know why nobody studying that. Some Myskina's haven't have Ah, ah anesthetic, Which is what you don't know, miss gives on you, then the mosquito to be on you long enough to feed that it takes a while and it sucks up your blood. Hey, It's nice to see area and you know, even being the crazy blood. You could always sell the skipper. That's why I just gotta googly eyed. Then it decides to go someplace else. Go to another body. Fantasized memories and then when, as it blows the anesthetic into somebody, it could actually blow some of the disease into another person. And then it sucks up more blood feet, and then it goes to somebody else..

"Each new Z. on the show it's because it happened to me so I've you see last night I had a sex dream okay and it was weird as usual my sex rings are very weird and the the big reason is is because I don't really get to have sex of the dream so many of you know I have a huge crush on a legal boards okay Viggo Mortensen was Aragorn he is an eastern promises he was in fact so many movies twenty eight days which I like them a lot and I thought he was gorgeous that was one of my favorite looks of his cell gorgeous guy and every now and then he's in my dream and last night I don't remember a lot I I it's really fragmented but it's weird and we we were basically in a my guess is a library because somebody can clinch okay and I did not do well with libraries libraries is probably like my prison I I could be fine to prison prison of a funny because there's noise libraries I can't I can't handle so quite so were in some sort of library and we're together and he goes he basically wants to have sex and so he takes me to one of the other like like we try to find like an area near a bookshelf right we can go where it's quiet but then something comes up we have to like do something else and then Michael no big deal I better be ready hopefully still look good you know hopefully you know I've seen this morning there is a girl that you know that kind of thing right okay deodorant store again I'm good then he finishes what he has to do with those okay let's go let's so then we go and and apparently he industry was been a partner of mine for awhile so this wasn't like new it's like I knew exactly what we're gonna do and I was excited about it and whatever and then something else came up and so the route the dream we were supposed to have sex and it never happened and the funny thing is is with with Viggo Mortensen my dream I've never had sex with them we're just about to and I talk about dreams I interpret dreams we've talked about that a lot of the show and I'm a little perplexed by this because streams necessarily don't have to signify a sexual attraction to somebody you know if I had to be really really tried to somebody and not have sex with them that's you know and then you could be dreaming about somebody having sex with that you really aren't even interested in you know that happens a lot like sometimes they'll have a sex dream about a family member or about your boss one of the most common search strings out there is you have a dream about your boss whether it's a heterosexual or homosexual experience and people freak out because like wait a second I don't like my boss I hate my Basel that's why you have sex dreams about them because there's a very strong emotion you have about this box and you'll end of when your brain dreams my guess is the bring dreams because it has all this data is trying to figure out what to do with this data and you have a lot of emotion and your brain likes to connect a motion and data and so when you hate something so much there's some wire gets crossing you start like thinking about sex and it kind of means like a power issue is like they have power you want to gain the power over them and so maybe your fantasy of gaining your power over your boss was like really toxic turns into a possible six three that's where I think that place comment sections all round the topic one is six with your boss to is sex with a friend's wife and somebody you're not attracted to that really freaks you out three is then somebody you are attracted to somebody into you are too and then you have a sense of that but that's usually not the top one yeah you can be on top but that's not I mean that's what the top three okay we are not concerned about the top sex positions in dreams all one needs missionary if I knew in the I have a dream about it but that's neither here nor there and then another very very common extreme is a family member crazy another common six stream is a random person a person you have no idea it's some random person so those are kind of the most top five six three this is not not really rocket science you know but I believe that a lot of times this extreme has nothing to do with says that just has to do with either power it has to do with your in security like you know when you wake up in your neck it or you don't want to make it but in your dream your make I give them life it's like you know or I used to get I would have looked like in front of her right and and like I ruined the clothes I hated those dreams stream signify in in security here not confident OR if you do if that happens and you like don't care and I'm like god make it then that means very confident as I see a good side so but when you're like oh my gosh I'm naked and you wake up call that was the worst night sleeve that was the most horrible thing because you have fears you have fear of the naked you have fears of your of your abilities are confident you might lose your job something like that is so sometimes that comes out with the you know I'm negative I dream doesn't it so that it was sex many times you will have sex probably down on the list search with your spouse and your dream you know you love your spouse right the aspects of this house it's a memory there that'll come out that you know but unfortunately it's not usually the most common type of dream Seoul sex in your dream it doesn't necessarily have to mean passion love desire it usually has to do with control fear guilt you know you might be dreaming about somebody and feel guilty I have no guilt dreaming about Viggo Mortensen because my has already knows about the express on him soul I don't know what my dream means my dream meaning in it never happens as I might have like a real big moral compass maybe or I am the sole guilty feeling sad I keep prevented it from happening in my dream so that I don't sit in my dream I don't know I I I I I don't know I we need to have the words on the show I do need to find a sense if we could talk about this and my first question damage he's on the show is does he ever.

"Years ago. He's up for best supporting actor again this year. He could take it given that he won the sag award already and the BAFTA which is the British equivalent to the Oscar and his co star Greenberg. Vigo Mortenson is nominated for best actor people that have said to me, you know, it's great it came out. Now is a good time because the country's divided ideologically. There's a lot of. Intentional interacting, sometimes very direct race, baiting, homophobia and all kinds of stuff in the air the adults with people should be behaving. Well, our leaders are not always leading by example lately. But I I say, yeah, it is a good movie to come out at this time because it's entertaining a lot of people, and it's not a movie, you wouldn't say, well, let's go see that movie. It's a movie about racism, you'd say, let's go see this movie. I hear it's funny and has a great road movie. And it's it's a true buddy story. And then you go see it, and whether you're from small town in Texas, or from California, it doesn't matter where you see it in the country, and what your political leanings of your household might be. You're gonna you're gonna get a history lesson and a civics lesson. You're going to have some think about but it's not in your face. Ironically, this is a feel good movie. That's had a feel bad storyline. This award season in terms of a number of controversies that have surrounded it. There have been objections on the part of Don Shirley's family as to the way his story is told. There have been comments about the way in which the story sort of centers Viggo Mortensen since character in a tale about race relations in the south. Yeah, another issue was Nick Villalonga, who's the co screenwriter of the film, and is the son of the character that Martinsen plays in the film had to apologize for some anti Muslim tweets that he had sent out despite that controversy Greenberg has done really well at the box office gross more than one hundred million dollars worldwide. And I think it has a real outside shot at winning best picture. Okay. So another movie based on real life is Roma. John veracity was so important to Alphonso Koran for this movie that he painstakingly recreated the home of his youth in the Roma neighborhood of Mexico City. One day, I found myself in these particularly lousy moth. And I'm shooting the scene, and I'm so frustrated that I have to just to say, okay. Let's take five minutes. I need to take a walk, and I took a work, and it was the street where I grew up, and I walk in his his manure so upset. Yeah. You're shooting your your childhood street and. What's going on? Whereas you relax. You know? He's like how many people have the chance to recreate their childhood. And there's a Roussel you didn't with. Okay. I go back to keep on working. And I tell the actor. We have you felt suffocated. Says yes, and we started talking about feeling suffocating life. So what happened this simple? You feel suffocated you cannot breath. And you're not going to have the sense of not being able to breathe until you get into the car and begin breeding when the car starts, and you drive away or man if it's a relief, you really breathe again with a the scene. It's great. And is when I realized that I'm directing the character. My father leaving the family. A person that has always judge from outside. And for the first time I have to dig into his motivation and you want to justify if you're selfish or not selfish, but he was feel suffocated. And and he could not stand there in that family anymore. One of the interesting facts about this film were to win the best picture and the best foreign language. Oscar how many movies have done that before? I don't know it starts with zero. Has never happened before. So now fun fact yellow thing that was very important too often Zocor owned, it's not just making sure that the house looked like his childhood home. But to make sure that the actors reminded him of the people who took care of him and the actress is he found where you'll eat. She had never acted before enter co-stars, marina, data visa and both have Oscar nominations. Right. Marina plays Sophia. The character of Alfonso Koren's mother elites place. Cleo, the character based on his childhood nanny, she's really the center of the film. It's her point of view from which it's told it's been fascinating watching the journey of these women from telluride when you and I first met them and learn their names to becoming Oscar nominees at the center of this extraordinary movie. Yeah. When we sat down with them until you're right. We are joined by litas translator. And unlike y'all elites have marinas professional actress, but she told us that her audition for Roma was unlike any other the only thing I had to do was sit down and talk about my life. Whatever I wanted to say about my life. How my childhood was who were my parents not really about my job or my life as an actress. But most my life as a person, and then I didn't hear about them like for months and then. One day. They call me they wanted to see me again, I still didn't know who the director was. And then I went again, they gave me a little scene and to memorize Ryan in that moment, I did it. And in the end, they told me it was a movie that was going to be directed by Afonso quite on. So my heart released stopped there Yali tan like you hadn't done a lot of acting. How did you find out about this movie? What was your first contact from our own about being in Rome badminton another? But I'd see me. So I'd never done anything in the movie industry before at all. Actually, I've never studied to become an actress or anything at all. I just graduated to become a teacher. There were I leave in lackey going Oaxaca. Actually, I went to the casting because my sister wanted to know what a casting was all about. And I didn't have a clue who I was not a clue. So I started looking up him on the internet. But just the pictures. I just saw the pictures. Once I got to the casting place. I did the Castano whether the casting process, and what I liked is that he spoke to me as if he'd known me from longtime ago. So I trust it, and he asked me to happy of mind than to take it easy. And he said just do what you normally..

"Seen stories. Not even hinting basically, stating that they think that Dolan will sell the Nixon ranges. I don't believe that first of all the story the guy who wanted guys who wrote the story knew so little about the product that he actually said the Christmas spectacular which did. So well was done a mass where God knows not. Radio city. So even mentioned Radio City in the story. I think that stock was started. They split the network, and they split the teams basically put the revenue producing items in one stock, and he put the ones that aren't producing revenue in the other one. So that the ones that don't drew a revenue don't drain from the ones that do. I don't think he's selling them. I think he'd be silly disown too valuable. I think they go up all the time. I think they appreciate like crazy. Why would you sell them? Under the Nixon ranges of incredibly valuable properties, Madison Square gardens insanely valuable property radio. City is an insanely valuable property the air rights above the garden are incredibly incredibly valuable. He the other now use building some expensive buildings. And that's one thing that could drain that stock a little bit. And that stocks been very successful stocks gone up a lot. I'm it's come down a little bit recently. But it was as high as three and thirty five dollars a share is down about two eighty now. But when a Longo stock was on their one hundred. That stock is very valuable is a very good stock. It's under appreciated, and but he has built some buildings now that are expensive buildings. We'll see how how how well they do in other cities. So musicals and stuff like that. So, but the ones he has here are very successful. They great buildings. I mean radio cities Konic building is good a building buildings. You'll have a going for an event. It's the best thing. You can go into seeing event is got the best acoustics. It's a great size. It's great seat is seating. I mean having been in there and Don show's there when dog, and I did a show there. It says it's the best building. You think it's best billions in the world. The acoustics Inara unbelievable. It's the right size. You know? It's just it's just enough. People think is fifty six hundred six just run six thousand. Great building beacon beautiful building well done. Nice size. The whole thing. Go to an event the beacons holes like twenty three hundreds of great builder. So I don't think he's gonna someone's Bill. I don't think you'll sell the team so valuable to appreciate too quickly. I think if he owns them now two years three years, and it'll be worth more than they are now. And in stone villas of Andy. Hey, Mike two things about Frank Robinson. Nobody's mentioned. It was day was a manager of the giants. Yes. It was a guy pitching for the giants. I wish I could remember his name ball was kicked off. That's right Jim bar, and he went to take them out of the game. Jim Barr was ticked off that he was taking them out of the baltim-. Frank Robinson grabbed him put him back on the mount, JIMBO. He did. More than once. But go ahead. What else? Yeah. Why there once said at a punch all I had to hit him once again. I don't really know if he hit them once a game. I mean, that's a lot. But Drysdale hit a lot of guys. There's no question and Franco hit a lot Tim and Budd lake was up to. Hey, thanks for taking my call. I got a couple of things about. I I. Era that I wish I grew up in air with Frank Robinson. And all those all those guys hear stories from my father kinda like, you know, just knows a lot about the history. Oh, I I really appreciate hearing all the stories of all my father was at the game. You can actually a couple of times. Metal almost hit the ball out of the stadium. My father always say, even sixty three. Kept rising stadium that game was on TV too. I mean that game. Against the as was actually on TV. And the ball was going on the way up. There's no question. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. He just kept writing when it hits. Like, I I can't imagine the ball hit that hard. Thanks for taking my call. True. That's not the farthest Bowman love hit. The man said the fall does you have a hit? He hitting a preseason game at USC. Early in his career. And they said the ball went six hundred something feet. So he said that was the best one the fathers one ever hit. Now again that was a preseason game was an exhibition game at USC. Mike in Manhattan. What's up? My brother. Your what's up? Sports Oscars last week. Did you get to watch all the bullying I've seen? I've seen a good a good number. I can tell you this. I think it's disappointing group number one. Come on. What we say? Give me a good movie. Good. My favorite movie of the year by far I think he should win. I think. The active for supporting actor should win. I think Viggo Mortensen should win. I think should win for best. Maybe I think it's best. I think it's one of the best movies. I've seen in years. Queen book, right? Green book best. But I didn't like vice alley. I I thought he was great off to this guy was great. He was absent. He was absolutely great. His name is I couldn't say. My her shallow her shallow are Li. I think it is how you would say my hair shallow. Lee for supporting actor and Viggo Mortensen I leading actor green book by far hands down by a mile best movie. I saw this year hands down the best one we've seen in years. Go see green book. It is great. You guys see green book great movie? Absolutely great movie, and the premise is this guy who is a typical guy who works at the Koper. As a talian a talion could be. In the late fifties. He gets laid off. They're doing a. Shut the COPA for a couple of months. And he is going to drive. He gets the job as a driver for this incredibly cultured. But incredibly snobbish black pianist who has a trio that is going to talk through the south. Between September and Christmas. But he needs a guy to drive them. But he also needs a guy who's got a little toughness because they're gonna drive through the south. And there's parts of the south that they have to use the green book where he can actually go stay in a hotel because he can't stay in hotels in Birmingham in Louisville where they're gonna off where he has high paying gigs where he is recognized as a classical pianist who as a trio, and it turns out that. The black musician is also highly culture. But he also he's also gay tying the fact that he's gay. And he asked to get to learn with this typical Italian who, you know, basically cheering Joe, Pepe tone is Italian as Italian can be okay. In a time where there is different as night and day, and they learn. How to not only coexist. They learn how to love each other. And it is an incredibly, well, acted brilliant movie. Brilliant, brilliant, green book, my brother John's told me about it. I got see green book, I watched it. Viggo mortensen. I know everybody wants to give the guy who played, Freddie. Mercury the Oscar. He won the Golden Globe. Okay. I watched that movie that movie's not great a star is born. I give them credit. I give lady Gaga credit. The movie was so slow. It was like pulling teeth. It was so slow vice was so badly done. I can't tell you. I was so disappointed. I wanted to see vice for so long. I finally went and saw vice I finally saw vice they sent me a copy a Screen Actors Guild sent me a copy because I'm a voter, and I could not and I'm telling you he's as good an actor as there is in the English language. Vietnam is almost impossible. That's how good he is. He looks like Cheney. He is a as good an actor as there is there's nobody better than him. But you know, what the movie he was good. The movie was terrible. Star is born way too slow lady Gaga is good. I give I give them credit. First of all the movies went down one hundred times. Okay. Is this like the fourth just about the fourth? Go round for a stars. It's been made for a forever. I mean, this is like remake number four. We make more three from the original. Goes good. But the movie is so slow, it's painful. Painful, how slow it is. I mean, he's just waiting for the begging for it. Then. The Queen movie bohemian rhapsody. Good. Not great. He's good. He's really good. I understand. He's really good. But I wouldn't give him the Academy Award. I hope Viggo Mortensen when he deserves it green book and Ali deserves it for the supporting actor. I did not see a couple of those strong women roles. I did not watch him. Why? If I did not see every time going goes is there, you know, she's a threat. She's in the movie why she's nominated. I did not see her, but green book is by far I've seen forward a nominated movies and green book is by far the best book best one by a mile and one of the best movies. I've seen in years. I highly recommend you go see green book. Patrick cleveland. What's up? Hey, mike. What's happened? Do you recall, man? I am a huge fan. Got Mike von app. Thank you. Thank you. All your Super Bowl content. Amazing. I'm in Cleveland, but I ended I listen to you on radio dot com. Thank you. What's happened? Also, I wanted to bring up to you. I don't know if you've talked about it. I just got in the car and was listening. I missed the first hour about the Kevin Durant. Possibly to the next up. If you could comment on that. Listen, first of all, I think it is incredibly overdone because nothing has really changed. Okay. I think it's a viable possibility in the off season. No one knows how the rest of this year is going to impact Durant. What happens the rest of this year? What happens in the playoffs? And then the clippers are going to be a real serious contender. They're going to be able to get to max contracts there in southern California. You got Doc Rivers, you got bomb who's a very rich owner, Jerry West involved. They they have a lot going for them. I can see them being a big threat. I can see the Knicks having a big chance. I don't know what he'll do. But I wouldn't put the Knicks. As a matter of fact, put the clippers a slight favorite over the Knicks. Be interesting to see him on the Knicks. That'd be that'd be great. I think it'd be great the Knicks need, hopefully it happens. I think he, you know, listen, I don't know what he wants lifestyle wise does he want southern California and the clippers does he want the Knicks? I dunno. I could see him going to either one. But I take the clip was as being a serious threat, though, very serious threat to the Knicks Georgia in plain view. What's up, George? Hey, Mike, Dolan comments. If I had no idea when I went into the theater, what green book was going to be really about blew me away. I couldn't agree with you. More thing is the best book and Vigo got desserts. Big O's, great in the movie, absolutely. With him until about twenty minutes in or how good is he in that movie? I mean, he is a great supporting cast, by the way. Linda Carter Nellie. She was. And yeah, he's unbelievable. Absolutely. Vigo Mortenson is like one hundred guys, you know. I mean, that's the way the as I I'm telling you he he's like every Italian guy from the fifties. It's unbelievable. As per family to the guys they pick absolutely. Louis. Great move away. Great move, James stolen. I don't know. If you've got to sell a not, but Mike, you would know this. So maybe I'll hang up. In the garden. I believe he has to give up that garden in like, I don't know. Is it seven years six years he rebuilt that when they rebuilt that they put that two billion something happened when he wouldn't allow the jets to build that stadium..

"Yes would have been nominated for best picture in nineteen eighty three or nineteen eighty eight or nine hundred ninety three you could put it out at any point in the last forty years. It would be exactly the same movie Mahela Aaliyah's, Donald Shirley is very good in this movie Viggo Mortensen is doing a very broad victory victory away. But it, but it felt it felt minor and Simple. sick. And Pat, and kind of this is a comforting movie if your view of race has not evolved at all in the last forty years, the more a white person. And you're a white person the more you read interviews with Donald Shirley's family, the clearer. It is that they didn't talk to any of them or find out any actual information about Donald Shirley or how he lived his life. The movie has a great big plot point that Donald Shirley is estranged from his family and hasn't talked to his family in ages and his family says that is completely untrue. He was close with his family talked to his family all the time. The movie does not care. There's a telling moment in the Golden Globes where Nick Villalonga accepts a Golden Globe. And says boy every time I see Linda Cartolini who plays his mother every time. I see Linda Cartolini in this movie. I just think that's my mother there on the screen, and I think that's for him. The point of the movie is this is a movie about my family. And it does not give a crap about Donald. Shirley, does not give a crap about his. Experiences at all it cares about this guy who became this guy's driver for a little while the movie establishes at one point that they call him Tony lip because he be S's all the time. And it takes his word as gospel and puts it up on the screen, and that's our story of how the races can work together because this racist learns this one guys. Alright it. Uneven. I gotta madder and madder. Ever since seeing this movie, I can tell you think on you know, what I say things like this is a movie for your parents. I you know, I have been accused of ageism and that's a fair cop. I get that. But for this particular film, I believe that in this country. There is a generational divide between those who believe that racism and prejudice are the exact same thing that there's no difference between them so they seek out stories of people, overcoming prejudice because prejudice is personal prejudice is individual. And you can't it can be combated. It can be defeated through personal contact so individual reconciliate individual reconciliation so stories about friendships across the races or good people taking a stand like the help those are just keyed into this is this is their view of what racism is small personal. And I will say I do think there are still plenty of people of all ages who believe that that's Stella pernicious idea this film posits that that is the answer to racism or as fairly himself said. During a speech finding common ground. That's what that's here's the other thing. The first thing that you see Tony one of the first things you see Tony lip do in. This movie is come home to his his house discovered that his wife has allowed to black men who are working on something around the house to have a glass of lemonade and Tony lip goes over. And because these two black men have drunk out of these glasses throws the glasses away that is vicious vile racism, and the idea that the way to look at this story is Donald Shirley. And this person who throws out drinking glasses from black men who worked at his house need to find common ground. Like why that is so bizarre to me, and it is such an offensive idea. I don't understand where that's coming from. I don't think the film ever justifies. Even like, I don't think the film ever explains how Tony lip even become someone from there. Who likes Donald Shirley or is willing to spend time with him in a car? Let alone the fact that he's a vile racist seems to kind of evaporate magically once. They are on the road. I think the move bad. It's boring. It's what way too long does not justify its existence..

"To take the policy more. You don't even have to go through the motion and trying to make people believe your poll a scientific inaccurate. You just say Twitter has blown up. How many times do you hear that? We hear it. A lot of Twitter's blowing up you're gonna new story. Some new story on TV or Twitter is blowing up. What the hell does. That mean? What does it mean Twitter's blown up? It means that the media has found a bunch of tweets that make the case. As a substitute for overwhelming public opinion all across the country that the media's ain't gonna story is right. It's one of the. It's a hoax when you get right down to it. It's a it's a fraud being perpetrated on everybody. We don't know who these tweezers are other than their common ordinary average everyday people who do not know anything other than their perverted opinions on things, which are them automatically granted expert status by the media, only too happy to publish and repeat the tweets because the tweets happen to say exactly what the media wants to say. But can't as journalists as you know, journalists can't put opinion in story. So the tweets are the perfect stand-in. And using these tweets and saying Twitter has blown up means America has blown up Twitter has blown up over these Catholic kids being mean to the Indian chief. Translation of America hates these kids. Exactly as they should be hated. And that becomes the soap opera script that becomes a narrative. Twitter is even having an infant not that I care about this. But other than the import of it. Twitter has determined who the nominations are for kademi awards. All it takes is for somebody to review, there's a movie out there. Call a green book, and it's about some New York. It's a true story about some New York mob guy named Tony lip driving. A black pianist Dame. Don, Shirley through the racist, south nine, gene sixties. And it's about and the author of the story is the is is a grandson or a relative of Tony lip. So it's told from his angle and the movie portrays these guys, Don, Shirley, he's his played by Herschel Ali an up and coming actor out there. But the way and he's driving around the back seat of this fifty seven Chevy, whatever Carter and haven't seen the movie, I'm telling you this because what I've seen written about it and Viggo Mortensen plays Tony lip and he's driving this guy round and ends up his bodyguard. So white guys the bodyguard for the black pianist who happens, Bobby Kennedy? They get thrown in jail. He calls Bobby Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy gets amount anyway Twitter. Reacting to a review of the movie praising the Tony lip angle of this movie Twitter has destroyed it is said some of the chances the movie has for Oscar success because Twitter blew up over the fact that the movie is racist and bigoted, nobody knows who these Twitter people are. What an legitimate movie fans or even seen the movie, but they're not a collection of wrecks reads and professional movie critics out there, but Twitter blew up over a review in the Oshkosh gazette over the movie, the green book the green book, by the way was a private publication for black people to show them where in the south. They could go to eat and drink safely. During the days when the Democrats ran the south the bull Connor's of the days when the Democrats were practising racism with dawn's and firehoses. The green book was a private little publication that showed blacks related go without being harassed and sit at the counter and eat and so forth. And so there's a review of the movie and it praises Tony lip. The white guy doesn't praise the black guy. Mahershala so Twitter goes nuts over the inherent racism of a movie making a white guy. Look good. And now the academy is said to be afraid to duly honor. And recognize the move. Now, what kind of garbage is this? And this is exactly what the drive by media is using Twitter in every instance to move along their agenda. But Twitter is made up of people who obviously have problems number one. They they relish being anonymous. They don't have the guts to be public. And if we knew who they were they couldn't get a shot on TV as an analyst, really, they couldn't qualify as opinion leaders. They couldn't create their own audiences. If it was left to them. But if they say the right things that the media loves an appreciation wants to promote the media picks them from obscurity, and incest Twitter has blown up meaning America has blown up. Now, we're all sitting around here say when did we lose our country, and we haven't lost our country. They're just making it look like we have. Because a bunch of mentally unbalanced board people on Twitter. Have the courage to be wjm, profane, vile because there are of anonymous which is also having its own deleterious effect on discourse and culture. They're on our society at large. Is this another thing that you have to keep an eye on another thing that you have to make sure you don't have a knee jerk reaction next time. You hit a Twitter has blown up. Make sure you remember what Twitter is and who it is. That's blowing up. They're not people. You would even invite to your house. What about all the famous? I'm not talking about the famous people. That's not what the media uses. The media uses people you never heard of and they over and over, but they have become replacements. For public opinion polling data, they become replacements for sources credible. Sources in new story after story Trump has a new slogan, folks. He tweeted it out. I think we need caps need to make up cabs build a wall and crime will fall. Make america. Great again, build a wall crime will fall Trump sweet says, this is the new theme for two years until the wall is finished. It's under construction. Now. This is a new theme of the Republican party use it and pray. Says Trump's tweet build a wall and crime. Will you want to see something ridiculous? Well, I'm not going to show it to you. But you want to hear about something ridiculous. Oh, yeah. I'm going to get to the comedy stuff. I got time to work that end today. You sure can't wait to get to that. I'm just gonna read it. I'm not again, even avenue commentary. It is so. Self evident and explanatory. When you hear this? It's a story from what is it the hill dot com? Here's the headline Trump trails several possible. Twenty twenty democrat opponents in latest poll. What is this January twenty second yesterday? The story came out last night January twenty third two thousand nineteen the election is twenty three months away. The things you're going to happen between now and the election or unpredictable. We can't possibly know. They're going to have an impact on why. I mean, we don't even know who the democratic nominee is we've already got polling. Data Trump trails several possible twenty twenty democratic seriously. Syrian and here are the numbers and each from our all buddies the left wing rag of polling public policy. Polling Trump trails. Senator Kamala Harris by seven points. I guess that means Trump should just give up. Trump trails Phocas by six points. That'd be Elizabeth. Warren, Trump trails gear Ston killer Kirsten gillibrand doesn't have a prayer of getting a democrat nominee. She to blonde, and she's white and she's not too bright. She'd ever prayer Biden's not gonna get it. Because and they are saying this not me Biden isn't going to get it. Because of agent health. I'm not saying that I don't know plugs, but they do, and that's what they're saying. I can tell you right now, they're can be Kirstin gentle brand new. So it doesn't matter. Whether doesn't. This. And yet there it is big news story, and it's picked up by the APA picked up by. Yahoo news picked up all over the place. I didn't Twitter starts reacting to this. Two hours after this published were totally out of control. Again. Trump also trails several top progressive leaders who are speculated we why Trump Stephen behind people and having declared do you know that Trump is. So hated Trump.

"You don't even have to go through the motion and trying to make people believe your poll a scientific inaccurate. You just say Twitter has blown up. How many times do you hear that? We hear it. A lot more sweaters blowing up. You're gonna do story story on TV or Twitter is blowing up. What the hell does. That mean? What does it mean Twitter's blown up? It means that the media has found a bunch of tweets that make the case. As a substitute for overwhelming public opinion all across the country. That the media's angle on the story is right. It's one of the one of the it's a hoax when you get right down to it. It's a it's a fraud being perpetrated on everybody. We don't know who these tweezers are other than their common ordinary average, everyday people who do not know anything other than their perverted opinions on things which are automatically granted expert status by the media, only too happy to publish and repeat the tweets because the tweets happen to say exactly what the media wants to say. But can't as journalists because as you know, journalists can't put a pinion in story. So the tweets are the perfect stand-in. And using these tweets and saying Twitter has blown up means America has blown up Twitter has blown up over these Catholic kids being mean to the Indian chief. Translation of America hates these kids. Exactly as they should be hated. And that becomes the soap opera script that becomes the narrative. Twitter is even having an infant not that I care about this. But other than the import of it. Twitter has determined who the nominations are for Academy Awards. All it takes is for somebody to review, there's a movie out there. Call a green book, and it's about some New York. It's a true story about some New York mob guy named Tony lip driving. A black pianist Dame. Don, Shirley through the racist south in nineteen sixties. And it's about and the author of the story is the grandson or a relative of Tony lip. So it's told from his angle and the movie betrays these guys, Don, Shirley, his his played by Maher show. I'll lean an up and coming actor out there. But the way and he's driving around a back seat at his fifty seven Chevy, whatever Carter and haven't seen the movie, I'm telling you this because what I've seen written about it and Viggo Mortensen plays Tony lip and he's driving this guy round and ends up his bodyguard. So white guys the bodyguard for the black pianist who happens, Bobby Kennedy? They get thrown in jail. He calls Bobby Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy gets him out anyway Twitter. Reacting to a review of the movie praising the Tony lip angle of this movie Twitter has destroyed it is said some of the chances the movie has for Oscar success because Twitter blew up over the fact that the movie is racist and bigoted, nobody knows who these Twitter people are legitimate movie fans or even seen the movie, but they're not a collection of wrecks reads and professional movie critics out there, but Twitter blew up over a review in the Oshkosh gazette over the movie, the green book the green book, by the way was a private publication for black people to show them where in the south. They could go to eat and drink safely. During the days when the Democrats ran the south the bull Connor's of the days when the Democrats were practising virulent racism with dogs. And firehoses. The green book was a private little publication that showed blacks were making goal without being harassed and sit at the counter and eat and so forth. And so there's a review of the movie and it praises Tony lip. The white guy doesn't praise the black guy. Mahershala so Twitter goes nuts over the inherent racism of a movie making a white guy. Look good. And now the academy is said to be afraid to duly honor. And recognize the moving what kind of garbage is this. And this is exactly what the drive by media is using Twitter in every instance to move along their agenda. But Twitter is made up of people who obviously have problems number one. They they relish being anonymous. They don't have the guts to be public. And if we knew who they were they couldn't get a shot on TV as an analyst, really, they couldn't qualify as opinion leaders. They couldn't create their own audiences. If it was left to them. But if they say the right things that the media loves it appreciation wants to promote the media picks him from obscurity, and then says Twitter has blown up meaning America has blown up, and we're all sitting around here saying when did we lose our country, and we haven't lost our country. They're just making it look like we have. Because a bunch of mentally unbalanced board people on Twitter. Have the courage to be wjm, profane, vile because they're anonymous which is also having its own deleterious effect on discourse and culture throughout our society at large. Is this another thing that you have to keep an eye on another thing that you have to make sure you don't have a knee jerk reaction next time. You hear Twitter has blown up. Make sure you remember what Twitter is and who it is. That's blowing up. They're not people. You would even invite to your house. All the famous. I'm not talking to the famous people. That's not what the media uses. The media uses people you never heard of and they over and over, but they have become replacements. For public opinion polling data, they become replacements for sources credible. Sources in new story after story Trump has a new slogan, folks. He tweeted it out. I think we need caps need to make up caps. Build a wall and crime will make America great again. They'll the wall crime will fall Trump sweet says, this is the new theme for two years until the wall is finished. It's under construction. Now. This is a new theme of the Republican party use it and pray. Says Trump's tweet. Wall and crime. Will you wanna see something ridiculous? Well, I'm not going to show it to you. But you wanna hear somebody ridiculous? Oh, yeah. I'm going to get to the comedy stuff. I got time to work that in today. You can't wait to get to that. I'm just gonna read it. I'm not again, even avenue commentary. It is so. Self evident and explanatory. When you hear this? It's a story from what is it the hill dot com? Here's the headline Trump trails several possible. Twenty twenty democrat opponents in latest poll. What is this this January twenty second yesterday? The story came out last night January twenty third two thousand nineteen the election is twenty three months away. The things you're going to happen between now and the election or unpredicted, we can't possibly know. They're gonna have an impact on why. I mean, we don't even know who the democratic nominee is. And we've already got polling. Data Trump trails several possible twenty twenty democratic seriously. Series. And here are the numbers. And it's from our all buddies the left wing rag of polling public policy. Polling Trump trails. Senator Kamala Harris by seven points. I guess that means Trump's to just give up. Trump trails folk goddess by six points, that'd be Elizabeth. Warren, Trump trails gears, Kirstin gillibrand doesn't have a prayer of getting a democrat nominee. She to blonde. And she's to white and she's not too bright heat. Have a prayer Biden's not gonna get it. Because and they are saying this not me Biden didn't going get it because of age and health. I'm not saying that I don't know plugs, but they do, and that's what they're saying. And I can tell you right now that can be Kirstin gillibrand is so it doesn't matter. Whether Trump's doesn't matter any of this. And yet ferret is big news story, and it's picked up by the APA picked up by. Yahoo news picked up all over the place. Then Twitter starts reacting to this. And by two hours after this is published. We're totally out of control. Again. Trump also trails several top progressive leaders who are speculated we Trump's even behind people and having declared do you know that Trump is so hated company so Trump is so disgusting that he even trails Democrats and progressives of haven't even announced their nomination attempt yet. He trails Biden the trades trails Bernie's at Trump's approval numbers. You know, what they other forty five percent in the midst of all of this two years every day, multiple times, a character, assassination slander and libel. Issue after issue after issue. Ninety two percent. Negative media coverage solid every day every week every month for the whole year. And he's at forty five percent. But it doesn't matter his already lost trailing.

"I frigging hate these awards are so stupid who even votes on the Razzies doing no idiots. It's okay. Actual raspberries. I mean, that's making more sense now. Okay. Is there anything else that we left out of these this Oscar nomination discussion that any of you guys want to mention Brad? I know you didn't really get it just because you didn't write up this. You weren't part of this. Biggest Ostra snubs and surprises article. I was up this morning in the madness, and I helped with the snubs list. But then I went back to bed because it was early in my the time zone that I'm in right now. Yes. So is there anything you want to say about the nominations? There's one thing I wanna say, and it's not I talked to Jacob and the team about including this on the article, but we decided not to simply because it's not technically now, but I just want to put it out there. Just just just because I think Jesse Clements should have been a nominated for best supporting actor for game night because his performance is every bit as good comedic Lee as Melissa McCarthy's was in bridesmaids. And even though he wasn't ever really in the conversation. I feel like he would have been totally deserving of it if they would have made the push for him to get an manasian. Also wanted to give a shoutout to eighth grade which got surprisingly completely shut out of the Oscars. I thought at least that it would get a best original screenplay nod for director, Bo Burnham, also has direct toil debut another world, maybe he'd get a best director nod as well and also Elsie Fisher who was sort of in the conversation for best actress and would have been a very young, but very deserving a nomination. Rewrote husbands. And personally very upset. That eighth grade didn't get any love. I wanna use my universe.

"Radio sixty six. And we're back final hour before Evan Roberts takes over at ten o'clock. We've got Mr Brian Rascon at the controls in the co pilots chair and in just a little bit. Brian Costello will join us talk about the jets, and obviously they're coaching hire. Which is I I can't even say somewhat controversial. It's very controversial. And I would say that the the fans will be loaded for bear on Monday. When Mr. gaze is announced at his press conference as the head coach of the NYJ's, so we'll get into that in a little bit. While we're waiting for our phones to populate at eight seven seven three three seven six six six six couple of little items. We talk about movies a lot. And in this time when you really don't have great basketball being played in New York and hockey with the Rangers weeknights which used to be filled with baseball not happening. The to other forms of entertainment and movies. And I saw a movie the other night that I thought was great, and it is a controversial movie. And I can't understand why I watched it. And I thought oh, this is terrific. Where's this movie? But I didn't know anything about it. When I came into other than it had won a Golden Globe award and it had a couple of actors. I really like Mahershala Ali and. Another actor who I really really enjoy and. It was it's called the green book. Now, the the story they didn't know anything about it came out November story was there was a black concert pianist in one thousand nine hundred sixty two by the name of Don, Shirley. He lived above Carnegie Hall in a very palatial apartment with all sorts of art wonderful, the trappings of luxury very very well off. And he's going to tour the south and this is nineteen sixty two. So the green book is a book that was written. The tells black people where they could stay in the south and be safe as opposed to trying to get into another hotel and be rejected or beaten up for. You know, the story. So he knows that he's going to encounter problems touring the south no matter how distinguished and educated and good he is because of his color. So he endeavors to hire a driver slash bodyguard for the journey. And he winds up hiring this guy from the Bronx South Bronx. Who was a bouncer at the Copacabana. And this is based on a true story. And he he's a big hit a couple of black plumbers in his house and his wife gives the plumbers a glass of water. While they're working and leaves the classes in the sink, and when he comes out and sees that they've used it. He takes the glasses and throws them away in the garbage. That's the kind of guy. He is. Here's realize it though, he just thinks way it is. So bottom line is he accepts the job. And there's certainly a lot of consternation as to whether he should take it and consternation is whether he should be hired. Because of his his position on racial relations. So it turns into a buddy movie, and the acting is so good. I mean, Viggo Mortenson is the the Bronx guy, and I didn't even recognize him. He's gained like fifty pounds for the role is Harris slicked back as a look like Viggo Mortensen at all. And he drives him around. He goes to Pittsburgh first. And then they go south and he's crew talking guy. Every other words out of his mouth is a swear word, and Don Shirley is refined and dignified and intelligent and everything that he's not, and it's sort of a buddy road movie where they learn from each other where Mortenson supplies the muscle. And it helps Shirley out of a few real bad jams that you would think a black person in the south would get into back in that day and age no matter how good they were. And he bills Mortenson out of a bunch of situations that his talion Bronx upbringing gets him into. And in the end, they become friends, and they understand each other. And they understand each other's way of life, and it's very inspiring movie. And it's directed by Peter Farrelly who is one of the fairly brothers. Who did shallow Hal and dumb and dumber movies? I wasn't big fans of. But I thought he did a great job. And after the film comes out, there's all human cry from Don Shirley's family. Oh, this isn't right. This isn't right. That's not right. It's it's it's a white savior movie. And it's not it's two guys who get to know each other and gets a look past color and look past education and all of that. And appreciate what they have in each other. And on that level of works. So well, and it doesn't gloss over the racism in the south or even in the north back then and today still it doesn't gloss over any of that. It's so good and anybody who's seen it who who didn't come in with prejudice. And with expectations loves it. I mean, rotten tomatoes. It's getting a pluses. I mean, everybody's in yet. There's this hue and cry in a campaign to disparage this movie, and I would just say go into it with an open mind, watch it and see if you don't think it's as good as I thought it's the best movie I've seen in a long time. And I was just so shocked that so many people are dead set against it. When even if any picture that's a bio pic that is based on a true story is never going to get every detail. Right. No matter how diligent their efforts are. But I. I thought they really tried. And I thought they really did a good job in according to the writer, one of the co writers who is the son of the Bronx driver. He had interviews with Don, Shirley and with his dad, and you know, basically corroborated all the information that they got. Anyway, let's move on Anthony and south Jersey's with us. You're on the fan. Anthony. I don't which good. Tony. A couple of points about the jets. Okay. The guy you just had on one hundred percent, right? That was Puglia mcalinden choice. But let me tell you something about the giant problem. With jets is the ownership because. Eight hundred million dollars is probably way to three billion dollars. That's the concern. What he Johnson? I don't think these people people. I know they're not football people don't even know anything about football. So that's why they have to hire a guy to. Hi, guys, more guys. They have no idea. How many owners let me ask you this. How many owners are football guys Jerry Jones? Okay. You know, you can take a couple of other owners maybe who came up through the ranks. But most of them are not football is they're businessmen who have a lot of money. You can afford to buy a team. Right. I understand that. But I think of all what he's probably the least knowledgeable. Okay. I move onto that. Secondly of all us talk about the jets. The jets quarterback really think doll. Definitely the future or the jets. I mean when you wanna put them would y'all rename it. Nobody's doing that. But but he is the guy if you've watched him play is the guy that gives you hope that you look at say, he's got he's got talent. He's got a lot of things going for him that I think he can be the franchise guy is he now. No. I mean, you know, look at his numbers you barely completed fifty percent of his passes. But you watched him in games. And you saw what he could do on the move. You saw his smarts is cool. Everything about him. Makes you think and he was by most people's choice. The number one quarterback in the draft of the Mayfield might be better. But. And you know, you've seen encouraging signs, and he's a guy that you want to build around. All right. We're gonna take a break. And then Brian Costello with his informed opinions about the jets they're coach their quarterbacks. Everything jets next..

Movie Review: “Green Book”

"Which I said, let's see I'm looking up here. I said I watched green book, and it was about a white racist who teaches a black guy how to be more black and how we'd all be better off racists in the victims of racism, just got along. Better your enjoyment of the film will likely depend on your receptiveness that message. And I literally thought I think I'm only my leagues agitating. When I literally thought I was just stating the text of the film like that. That is what I thought the movie was trying to. Say a lot of people were like criticizing me being like, you know. That's super harsh. Dave. And I'm like that is what the movie is like it's Viggo Mortensen plays a racist. There. Mercia Lally plays a black pianist going through Jim crow, south touring and and being subject to racism and the to kind of teach each other. Better understanding if humanity, and I think Mark Harris did a great job of running down like what's wrong with movies like green book, which they feel like they are out of I dunno late eighties early nineties. Right. This kind of by this. This type driving. Exactly, right. The like driving miss daisy. Both sides have something to contribute to the conversation. Like, oh, like like, look at how much we all have to learn from each other. You know, like. I'm sure I can imagine somebody who was big in Hollywood in that period. Looks at this way. Now now, the white guys driving him that's the movie, I know. And so it's not I mean, it's certainly I can understand why people find it to be an offensive film. And in fact, the the relatives of Dr Don Shirley have since come out and publicly denounced the movie, they have said like this movie contained they called it. A symphony of lies is what they said face like everything about the movie is that it is a gross misrepresentation of their relationship because like a big part of the movies about Dr Don, Shirley, the pianist and how he's like so disconnected with his family. And and he doesn't like he feels like a like an outsider to his own race. And it's it's Viggo Mortensen 's mildly racist character that helps them to reconnect with his like, it's all this stuff and his. The real life on Shirley families like well that never happened. None of that was true. But at least it was a symphony of lives. That's correct. The poster will say a symphony. No, I don't I don't know if they're gonna use that poco, Jeff. But in any case, I mean, yeah, it's so it's not even really that accurate and the story as it just it just feels like it's from a different era. Feels like we don't really need this kind of story anymore. We have other choices today about you know, how we've you these types. I mean. Yeah. There's there's a more diverse slate of filmmakers behind the camera. These days that can tell stories like this and from a different and more interesting perspective. So poignant views like, you know, more nuance point of us. I will say when I first saw the trailer for this. And I was like oh, my Herschel eilly. That's so that's interesting. This looks cool Vigo Mortenson and then Peter Farrelly. And I remember we talked about project greenlight a couple years ago. I will never forget how Peter fairly treated producer EFI Brown. And like, you know, she's a really well known and very prolific. Black producer. Yeah. And she's made a lot of stuff and Peter fairly would not show her any any instance of like respect or like there's just like a like subtle racism going on there.
