"Movies on newsradio eight fifty eight and ninety four one FM Mike Rosen is joining us to talk about well we we talk about some movies but I feel like we talk more about streaming shows and things that are available and all that good stuff now welcome back Mike thank you yours as Mike Rosen at the movies I haven't been at a movie for what two or three months yeah yeah that's we should you know Mike Rosen on his couch yeah I was listening to you guys in the last hour talking about the George Floyd business day was making the point about people who make a ridiculous over expansive generalizations about people acting in accurate racial profiling I tell you a story about that there was a United Airlines plane doesn't matter what airline it was it was a captain and a new co pilot the captain happen to be Jewish in the copilot happen to be Chinese and I don't know where once they took off the captain says to the copilot I hate the Chinese corporates is why so because you bombed Pearl Harbor and the co pilot should know wasn't the Chinese it was the Japanese the bomb Pearl Harbor now the co pilot says you know I hate Jews uses why because you suck the Titanic and the captain says no to Titanic was sunk by an iceberg iceberg Goldberg green is all the same with those matters anyway Vietnamese trying Japanese are anyway I I digress regarding George Ford what happened in Minneapolis many I agree with you I've always been very pro cop I even had a cousin when I was a little kid who is in New York City policeman went to many Jewish cops at the time and the vast majority of cops I've known a lot of cop friends or great people they do a wonderful job and some of my bad apples just like any profession they're right and talk show host for example there are a bad counterfeiters wait there but never made like why are you staring at me after you say they're a bad time what what is that share that the laser like focus on me I don't understand what what that what no heat that didn't happen I was just getting your you're not alone I I'm not either I don't know if you're somebody's out to get you might come up no I'm not paranoid issues all the people that hate me that that are anyway regarding this incident you've seen the video everybody has it was outrageous it was reprehensible it's indefensible I know I'm jumping to conclusions but in this case it looks to be pretty graphic having said that let's keep one thing in mind only a tiny fraction of cops are bad apples but summer there and if you were if you had statistics on this Richard owned it's a terrible thing when a racist white cop harasses and beats up or even worse kills a black man but that same fraction of white cops beat up many many many many more white guys where race isn't even an issue some of these people just like to beat up people I don't that's that's a little cold comfort thereby keno comforted this cop's gonna be using was but it is going to be bad guys let's do stop your whining what's the problem not exactly what my intention was that I know you're going to just make it okay just because the problem here by the way you can hear more insight from Mike next week because he is going to be on for me I am off next week and Davis off as well so my getting into you will be holding down the fort and they'll do a fantastic job as always now should we get over to start talking about some stuff some shows to movies and what not yes we had a movie of the week this is a movie as we have done with other ones it's not a new release has been out for quite some time that this was on a nineteen ninety six movie called sleepers not to be confused with the Woody Allen movie called sleeper to a completely different kinds of movies Dave and I have both seen this in the past I happen to stumble over it just a few months ago while I was just kind of scanning the the internet and and and found it a date you saw more recently than I did did you not yeah I said a couple nights ago my favorite part was when what he goes into your gas metron no no that's sleeper that's the Woody Allen movie that way if you are not familiar with woody Allen's earlier works sleeper is phenomenal it's alright I personally think it might be my favorite Woody Allen movie and then there's that leg and then there's purple rose of Cairo that's my order of Woody Allen movies and one of my favorite lines from sleeper by the way is when what do you get the premises he he fell asleep for a hundred years and woke up in the future and so he wakes up and they're trying to tell him what's going on and he says all I know is I had an appointment with the doctor I knew it was too good to be true and I got a space right in front of the hospital well my favorite Woody Allen movie was Yankee doodle dandy especially when he dances down the steps of the White House after meeting with President Roosevelt remember that same day no that's that's James Cagney in or not you desire yeah two guys very much alive twins really ID if you put him in the same room together I I wouldn't be able to tell them apart those two anyway back to the movie at Yankee doodle dandy right movies of all time coaches won't you're not mine at all I don't think I've seen that movie all you have to say you'll love it okay I watched it on my vacation place your tackle hand you know absolutely seen that movie oh oh yes I for some reason thought it was a war movie there for a second but that's yes I absolutely see that it's fantastic James Cagney was a great great hope for to like so many they start around vaudeville them offer that's my dream is to be called it's not sing Yankee doodle dandy you're missing one of the great films of all time it is very good it is right now I feel better than I've seen that I was feeling left out when you guys are putting on top five list there for a second let's get back to the movie at hand which is sleepers I said with the address in the one of the nineteen fifties some some permanent serve in in hell's kitchen which is on the the west side of New York between thirty third street in maybe fifty eight streak of getting close to the the movie the the shares with the Broadway show district and this was a part of Manhattan lower income Irish working class immigrants would live there and there are a bunch of kids ugh New York kind of street kids that were good friends and they pull pranks from time to time in this one prank would victimize this fellow who had a a hot dog wagon and which sells hot dogs on street corners also one of the kids would distract him steal a hot dog and the big guy would chase after him and then the other kids would go and help themselves all the goodies of the hot dog wagon one day that prank goes bad and the wagon which was unattended and on an incline starts careening down the street right down the steps of the subway and it kills a guy who had hits as a consequence of that these kids are caught and sent to a reform school where they are absolutely abused and tortured and one of the worst reform school guys is played by Kevin bacon who is a fabulous villain in this movie the kids go through this ordeal for all the time they're in reform school and then it flashes forward to what they were like when they grew up they take it from there yeah they so they grow up and because of the influence of this one year in this reform school were there not just abused or raped repeatedly and it's not just Kevin bacon it's two or three or four of the guard staff so they they kind of make a pact that they're going to get revenge if they ever get a chance and the challenge does present itself when they walk into a bar two of them and they see eating a meal calmly Kevin bacon and this is the scene that you're waiting for in this film the final revenge scene and and it's pretty satisfying it could have gone on for at least ten minutes as far as I'm concerned because I was totally enjoying that but they finally put him out of his misery and then there's the trial these two guys are going on trial for murder and it's one of the kids grew up to be assistant district attorney Ned played by Brad Pitt and so he he prosecutes and comes up with this idea to get his true friends off but if he doesn't even tell them about it and it requires that they hire a defense attorney who will play along in this game and they hired Dustin Hoffman and I had a child love this film except for one thing Dustin Hoffman why do you hate doesn't do the over activity can go a little big sometimes well he decided he was going to portray this character which is a an alcoholic lawyer who's really not qualified to do this but the mob is gonna make sure that he does this for them he he he decides doesn't happen he's gonna use this whispering voice you should be like this all the time early here mmhm and you're straining your ears all the time and he keeps this up through the entire rest of the film it is so aggravating and annoying and you're straining to understand everything he says he's one of these massive actors Dustin Hoffman he's done this before and I couldn't so he was he was the worst part of the film for me I feel that way about Sam Jackson in in the Kingsman and yeah he has this affectation all my god it makes it a punch in the face the entire movie like if you don't make a choice to get sold in five minutes now the the plot included Brad Pitt who was in the DA's office and he's gonna take that she's going to intentionally lose this case was a slam right case as Dave said the two of these guys who are grown up now we're both gang members of a west side gang and they were pretty brutal and then they just lacked a Kevin bacon's character in plain sight and and walked out of the place up there also was the the girlfriend played by many driver she grows with the guys who do not make a bigger splash with this cat that's the secret me you keep meeting people and they get it how are all of these people in a movie that didn't perform well one of the interesting aspects of this film is Robert De Niro who plays a priest father Bobby Garcia who you think of always playing the gangster role this is a film that's rife with gangsters and bad guys in the except not Robert De Niro he plays a tough kid to grow up to be a priest who is kind of the father figure for all of these kids and he loves these kids she knows they do some bad things but he also understands their background situation they grew up in and all of this is going to hinge the trial on Robert deniro father Bobby the priest lying they give an alibi a used it has to fight with this conscience are all about this but not much about saying what's his vision he came not ours that's true the the local mafia guy is played by Vittorio Gassman who plays a character by the name of king bandy is wonderful so they the trial is the second half of the movie and that way this whole thing goes with this absolutely all right ineffectual incompetent attorney Dustin Hoffman who's got a drinking problem is all part of the fix it's a it's a marvelous movie and David I agree they should have gotten some academy award mentions it was just for whatever reason ignored and had some great performances by Bruno Kirby you may be familiar with from the godfather sure and many many other films plays the father of one of these kids who.

"A motorized asked actually could be driven at forty miles per hour. In fact Don Adams was out there driving around the streets of L. A. With it and curiously the people of La did not even look twice at this man sitting at a desk. That was going down the street. There were several doesn't affect shots that were commissioned to give the film more candy or scoring duties see production ended up luring in Laos Schifrin who also composed the theme song that sung by Merry Clayton called. You're always there when I need you. That feature lyrics by Don Black Apu happened to have co wrote theme songs to James Bond Films themselves. thunderball diamonds are forever and the man with the Golden Gun. Were all written by Don Black. By the time the nude bomb was completed. The budget ended up blowing up. It was by that time a substantial for its time. Fifteen million dollars in whatever. The original script had that kept it in continuity continuity with the television show was pretty much squeezed out altogether by the studio looking to make it's money back on this investment now. According to Don Adams the script went through eighteen eighteen different revisions in his time since he. I read it in the first full cut of the film ran three hours and forty minutes so that was definitely not going to work and their goal was was to make it around ninety minutes which meant about two hours of cuts. Were necessary to that original. I cut and the more. They tinkered the less that not atoms felt like conform to the original show. He regretted several times not backing out of the deal early on he felt like the best stuff ended up on the cutting room floor. Once he actually saw the finished product especially he regretted the fact that there was some social commentary that was injected into the story that was completely cut out once they did all of the edits Don Adams and Leonard B. Stern also felt that British director Clive Donner was the wrong man for the project and he was not somebody who is familiar with the original get smart concept and he was unaccustomed to doing big broad films altogether even though he was considered a pretty good director he just was not a good fit for the material now as far as the plot goes the gist of the film is that an agent from the super terrorist organization chaos is threatening to rid the world of all clothing if chaos demands are not met. They're going to use a bomb capable double of destroying all forms fabric around the world. So it's up to age. Eighty six of why would take control because that was from the original show but they mysteriously changed the acronym that eight six six four from control to pits. PATS PROVISIONAL INTELLIGENCE TACTICAL SERVICE MAXWELL SMART. He still the super agent agent. And he's going to put an end to these various plans. Although wherever smart turns trouble seems to follow he suspects that there may be a double agent trying to put a wrench in the works but he he doesn't know who now there's a lot more to the plot than that but you know this is not a movie that you watch for the plot you watch it for the laughs. The DOT Adams here. He's returning returning to his most famous role one in which he took Emmy Awards for best lead actor in a comedy series for three seasons straight from nine hundred sixty seven to nineteen sixty nine. He won the Emmy Award for best actor in comedy. He's joined here by Robert Karvellas who plays Larrabee. Both in the movie in on the television show Karvellas and Don Adams were the only members of the show to actually return. Although Joey Foreman who plays agent thirteen in the nude bomb he did appear on a couple of episodes as the Charlie Chan esque Harry who all of that was considered to be kind of stereotype. They didn't want to delve into at the time that the new Bob came out. Now no mention of Maxwell smart partner in crimefighting is in the film of Agent Ninety Nine despite the fact that they were married and they had kids all of that was ret conned out. The chief is in the film but he's now played by Dina L. Car Edward Platt. Who was the original TV version of the chief? He died several years before filming. I think he died. Nineteen seventy four. Eugene Roach was actually the first choice to play the chief in the film. Mondays shot several scenes but he ended falling out of the project due to illness. And that required somebody come in and so they pick Dean L. Car during the production all scenes with Roche needed to be reshot and they did so veteran. Italian actor Vittorio gassman. Please the heavy in this film and in fact he has dual role. He plays Nino Salvatori Sebastiani and also. The actor recently had returned to Hollywood films after two decades doing Italian films and he performed in classical theater productions actions he was kind of a star in Hollywood back in the day. Gasman had grown discontent with acting in American films after being typecast through his contract with mgm into roles all said he felt were limiting in films that he considered mostly to be bad too he received also terrible press at that time he had a tempestuous two year marriage with actress. Shelley winters is that made the pastures of Italy. Seem all the more greener once he was done with that marriage meanwhile maxwell smart in the nude bomb he has three potential love interest to choose from he has the sultry agent. Thirty six played by Pamela. Hensley Hensley was known to some audiences at the time as Princess Dala in the first season of NBC universals missiles Buck Rogers. In the twenty fifth century. There was the sexy agent thirty four who was played by softcore Porn Siren Sylvia Kristel and then the goody two issues agent twenty to fill in for ninety nine play by Andrea Howard. The numbers of the agents. Here thirty six twenty to thirty four I guess they constitute undesirable measurements of women in this era and that forms a joke in the film Max Introduces Thirty six to twenty two in twenty to thirty six comedian Bill Dana who originally appeared on a couple of episodes of the get smart. TV show as different characters. He gets not only script credit here his only feature film work as a writer but he also appears. Here's any brief but memorable role as a fashion designer named Jonathan Levinson Siegel now personally speaking. I have been a longtime fan of get smart. I used to watch it when it was re runs throughout the nineteen seventy s into the nineteen eighties as well. It played all the time on television. I also went to see the nude bomb. I was nine years old when it it came out. I saw it in the theater and I saw several times on cable and it wasn't because I liked it that much but because I tend to forget the fact that it really is not that good of a movie but it the biggest reason I think for the drop off in quality between the television show and the new bomb is at the original. TV show had some very good writers they had very good creators. Attached Mel elbrick's Buck Henry. Even star Don Adams had his hand and writing and directing his share the creators of the nude bomb get the basic premise right and to some extent the characterizations even retain all of the famous catchphrases and loving it. Would you believe Mr by that much. And all of the other typical Maxwell smart `ISMs but they seem that they are forced first in for fan recognition more so than in trying to make credible jokes out of those catch phrases on their own and while most of the TV shows funniest moments came from the dialogue in the SATIRE TIRED OF POPULAR SPY flicks. The new bomb really isn't graced with that much Chris writing instead the funnier moments occur during some relatively inspired moments of slapstick. You get get a car chase between the bad guy in Maxwell smart controlling a souped up desk. And there's this chase through universal studios there's this melee that involves a dozen clones ends of agent eighty-six Duke it out with the clones of Norman sense of is also Maxwell smart is not as likeable in the nude bomb here as he is on the television series in the nude bomb. He's much more vulgar. He's smarmy. He has a rather distasteful sexual side. That was not evidenced in the small screen predecessor in that may turn off off some fans then again I guess the same could be said about the movie as a whole because it ended up failing to connect with the wider audience that they were seeking and it also ended up turning off series fans because it stray too much from the formula that they knew and loved nevertheless it did put up. I guess decent box office numbers in nineteen eighteen eighty s long considered to be a major flop a big bomb at the box office so to speak it debuted at number two when it did come out and that was just behind the slasher flasher movie that kind of became a phenomenon. At the time Friday the thirteenth it remained in the top ten a couple of more weeks. It did have a lengthy run overawe and it did earn about fourteen eighteen point five million dollars now. Of course the shooting budget skyrocketed up to fifteen million dollars so they did kind of lose money there especially if you WANNA factory in all of the marketing that they had to do but it was the studio's fault because they bloated the budget. If they had gone with original six million dollar budget it would have been a hit so to add insult to injury. The film ended up nominated for worst picture in the inaugural version of the Golden Raspberry Awards in one thousand. Nine hundred AK the razzies sees at least they benefited from the bleeding advertisements for universal and studio tour in the film as a consolation for their overspending. Hopefully they ended up at least turning up more people to going to universal studios because of what they saw in the film. Now there was a more proper revival that actually was made for TV film it came out on. ABC The in one thousand nine hundred ninety and it was called get smart again. That film completely ignores the nude bomb and it stays in the continuity of the television show and returns Barbara Feldon S. agent ninety nine. She was brought in. She agreed to the script in nineteen ninety five. There was also a short lived TV. Show that actually aired only seven episodes. It was on Fox oxygen featured both John Adams Barbara Feldon. Once again it was called. Get smart but it had Andy Dick and that effectively really did render the nude bomb as out of continuity annuity with all of the other get smart properties as such. The new bomb is probably only of appeal to get smart completed. If you're a huge fan of the TV show and you just want to watch all of the various incarnations of the show including the one that seems kind of like not the others then you would watch the nude bomb as well. You may also want to check it out if you're not particularly Louis into the faithful recreation of the beloved TV series if you're okay with the fact that it's going to deviate from the typical Canon of the show. I think that there are enough jokes jokes here. That you may find amusing may actually come away. Liking it. Many fans of the TV show do considerate non Canon because of its different tone lack of adherence to the show beyond the trademark trademark catchphrases and a few of the do hickeys like the shoe phone and the fact that agent ninety nine is left entirely. That really did turn off a lot of the hardcore fans. I do think canoed bomb still has its moments I admit I I actually enjoy watching the film. Even though I don't think it's particularly good film you know. The hit ratio is a little bit too heavily stacked in the negative to consider it worthwhile. I think for most people. There were forty backdrops. Obvious doubles silly looking props those does add to the already considerable cheese factor of the film. I guess there's a reason why the producers of this misfire lost control as the main organization and they gave us the pits it is kind of the pits. They didn't have as much control over their own property. But all in all this is a close call for me as to whether I would consider it worthwhile mile or not but I'm gonNA shade on the side of not because I don't know how much I would really recommend to people who love the show and we're expecting a continuation of the same. You're not going to get that here and I don't think it's going to pull in a lot of people who are unfamiliar with the show so it's a mess for the fans and for non fans. It's a missed who because it still doesn't quite make sense. I think unless you have the background of watching the TV show so all in all I'm going to give it two and a half stars out of four two and a half stars. My scale means that I do think that there were all the tools and talent actually make a worthwhile film here but it just misses. Missed it by that much to borrow a catchphrase from Maxwell all smart because it just deviated too much from the original source material and despite some humorous moments in the fact that it's watchable is just not enough to give it a broader recommendation communication. So you kind of have to have low expectations and just enjoy it as a diversion and not as a good film in of itself so two and a half stars is the best I I can give the Nude Bomb Aka the return of Maxwell smart now as far as what. I'M GONNA be talking about next week. I'm going to talk about that continuation. That was made for television. So a a made for TV movie. I'm.

"Invoke Gio We've just watched Warren piece directed by King Vidor from nine hundred fifty six and before we get into letting you know what we thought about it. It's over to Adam for a plot summary. Now disclaimer claiming that will be spoilers so if you don't WanNa know what happens you haven't seen the film also an apology. I Fail Adam. I'm sorry you're really take me. I I'm kind of ruthless sadists forgiving you this task but well. I think I might surprise you because I've done very basic very brief idea the what the film is about instead of complete some rains thumbnail sketches ideal because there's as I'm sure we'll cover clocks plot you want to tell you. Everything has warranties no longer than we've gone lease. Please do not okay all right so without the way over to Adam thank you well worn piece tells the tale of two families the Rostov and the bulk of Skis Balkan excuse as they travel has their way through Russian life during the Poland's invasion of eighteen twelve and the subsequent changes to that society as a result. It's basically a big Russian soap. Opera excellent night is a excellent thumbnail sketch thank you. I realized I realized that the book it centers on five families but this the film ready centers them too. Doesn't it yeah yeah I mean even in the book say there are two main families and then kind of a zillion others were kind of intersect and then even more supporting characters so so oh yes whereas there's an awful lot going on. So what did you think of it. Okay I. I'm GonNa Income Strauss. I mean this is a book on probably Never GonNa read because have enough time and the size of it just terrifies me. I mean this is like if it was a house. Brick would be big enough to be this ridiculous analogy but you could wrap several several lengthy note surrounded. If you're planning to throw wind exactly I mean this is lighten. This is crazy size for book. I'm so I must admit I came to the film slightly trepidation because the film itself is like three hours fifteen mins three yards twenty three thousand change. My Attention Span Dan for any movie is not very long. which is why I tend to like? The old beamer is on. I sixty five minutes long so I came into this thinking. Oh Uh this is just not something. I'm going to enjoy I realize the irony Evatt because the longest podcasts on the planet I was GonNa WanNa say I mean please do point. Dan Colin probably to give you run for your money but when he gets the nine and a half hours from one show than than maybe the moment he's like my commercial break so so I get the irony of me saying that I'm glad you point out I really struggled with this film because I watched it for the first forty five minutes to fifty minutes. I was thinking Oh my God what I'm not familiar with this story at all so I watched it and thought. When is something going to happen. All these people are doing just standing in a room you're making pleasantries to each other and then we're seeing a different room with other people making pleasantries each other and then we father talk to his son. Housing Oh my God when something happen and as a result taking me three weeks to watch this movie because I watched the first fifty minutes and thought well. I'll get back to it when it's time to record and last night I sat there at ten. PM thinking of two and a half hours to watch a well. Let's just do it and a half to say if you divide divided this film up into three the first fifteen minutes where they're just introducing. All the characters is incredibly boring the second act I'm I'm sure the bookies more exciting but this film as it's made Terrib- terribly though the second act I have to say when oldies character Natasha Natasha roster meets Prince Andrei that really kicked it up a gear for me and I'm ready ready found myself suddenly interested and suddenly drawn born into the story because there was something to center around it would just seem like so much disparate elements so many disparate characters just doing doing nothing not really interacting in a way that I found appealing. I guess just too many pieces floating around in the ether but once you have a love story to kind of center around and when you have that I you know I mean we talk about old restoring amendment yet well and she's so magnetic unbelievable in this. I mean you know I'm a huge huge fan of Roman holiday. I think as best film than you know. I mean even Sabrina which is a very very weak film. She is incredible in it because she's so magnetic igniting a allows you say in this film. She's probably ninety percent of why this film worked for me a more than that probably ninety five percent and because she is the secular thirds. She's so unbelievably beautiful one secondly. She seems to be the only naturalistic performance in the entire film a new looking at cast of thousands literally thousands of people. She looks like she's having fun. She seems James Young and an exuberant. She's you know she she as jubilant is. She is an older guys. Films Run holiday. She's as magnetic so the eye as she she ever was and I've never seen this before have to say when she was not on screen. It dies when she when she's onscreen. It's it just uh comes to live straight thankfully from the fifty minute mark too about the two and a half hour mark. She's really off the screen but she really does. Bring this film come to life now. I've read analysis of the book and they say that the character is is kind of similar. Although she starts off much younger I think in the bushes yeah searching yeah if Audrey is supposed to be playing a thirteen year old that's kind of failed but it's good that she's not because some of the stuff that happens early on would be super weird and Albright Okay so so I have to say when she meets version I mean there's much more like flirtatiousness. Okay what like two way flirtatiousness in in this then than there is at least as far as I recall all in the book okay good man for reading them the longtime ago. It's almost half my lifetime at this point. Z. Just finished but anyway so I think it took me a bow a month so that was like getting through Phar- amount every day. I don't know how I don't think I would manage it now. I feel incredibly bad saying this but I think as a book. This probably works incredibly well because I'm sure the author has the chance to you know float above the action as it were and so event to the heads of characters and describes going on over here. I'm sure that's what happens but I think as a film if you're going to sit someone down from start to finish until this story. I think it's too long and I don't I don't I think it's too much I mean awfully truncated it heavily to get it down to three hours twenty minutes but I think they could have done more to shorten it. I think if they concentrated untraded solely on the ordinary stuff and started it later than they did and I don't know it took six people to write this film and that kind of shows I think does this. It's so uneven in time. The love story at the center is brilliant the bit where she the bit where she meets Dr Forget his name now now the other officer who sweeps her off of then yes that bits brilliant because you genuinely wondering. Oh my God she's not GonNa Leave Andre for this guy and she does the old is really really intriguing Henry Fonda carrot appear. I don't think khanate enough. I'm sure he's a massive character in the book and I know people who've watched the mini series. They say he's a much bigger carriage not and she ends up with him but yes he's missing for so much of the of the film that you kind of it just doesn't feel right when she gets with him at the end. It's it's. He gets like the last asked forty. Five minutes of the film is all him yeah and the first half an hour or so is all him but throughout the rest of it. He's kind of just the supporting hand. I think it's very handsome film to watch which I think it's huge. I mean I feel like I've seen every inch of Russia. There are there are certain scenes in it dot blew me away. I've never seen anything like it on film. You Watch films. These new see things that are like it but they're all computer generated. Oh yeah I mean th there. There's a scene in this where Henry Fonda has a dual in the morning sun and lovely one. Yes it's just the most beautiful beautifully staged seen I've seen for so long. Let me the bit where he's going to look for the war and he comes on the hillside. He looks out across the hills on he sees two armies marching towards each other and an in an in in those kind of those blocks like they did you just like these little squares moving around and these are real people in the distance you. I know I'm being coordinated by a director who is also coordinating Henry Fonda in four shot in the distance. He's two armies of people marching towards and that is incredible the bit where the French soldiers leaving towards the end of the gun stop firing on them. I mean this. Shia amount of people and the sheer spectacle tactical of this film is incredible and Audrey is incredible but it's just it's just missing the just yeah ah I enjoyed it. I have to say didn't think I was going to I really like to fight to get through it but you know from about halfway in I saw so this is where it should have started. You know it's just it's it does loads to enjoy this loads. I didn't like for me if I had the Dow ten or something. It would be like seven but you know five of those ordering two of those of the grandeur of the thing. I'm definitely know my favorite movie experience ever have to say but as I you kind of need to see anyway because it's just such an experience for the yeah. I think my views are very very similar to yours. I mean it was knowing the story admittedly from other adaptations this rather than the book as I say book is a distant memory. I was just thinking if you'll coming into this fresh. How the hell you know you know what's going on because it's Kinda like you say a couple of people coming into thorough going. It's nice to see you. Yes right okay over here. Now Yeah Yeah it's like a writing all of a sudden you know you see a character in ten minutes before tipping his hat in the winter that talking about the dinner or something wise wise a point of this. It's not even introducing these as well have no idea of these characters personalities renting only when the love stories that you start to there about yeah. It's it's GonNa like they rattled off. Dialogue scenes new people will maybe some of the same people rattling off dialogue aloke and yeah I mean I haven't seen that well.
