"That's what we do a show. They have a new matrix. Movie coming out soon resurrections. Because i guess they need is also be the matrix and then in our word End so john wick is is here to play a neo. And what is that lady's name who plays training. Who cares like they're doing another matrix and the trailer is out. It's been like highly anticipated and all of a buzzsaw. Oh my goodness this. Fancy highly talked about super iconic scifi movie. We're getting another one. It doesn't feel very matrix to me the movie it was missing a lot of leather and combat boots and green tint over everything okay but that's fine I also don't know if kiana reeves has told everyone that he's working with he's not cutting his hair or facial like his his goatee beard situation. I don't like because. I know that they are planning on doing to john wick. Where i guess they do with fast and the furious where they're just gonna keep doing it until y'all refused to go watch them so. I figured that maybe the john wit girls were like. Don't cut your hair. we don't give a fuck about the one that to the three the matrix. We don't care about any of that shit go. He's doing john wick period. Gosh so if neo can't have a perm wrap it up. We're not doing it. So it's odd to watch john wick like running through the matrix and then you know we have My husband that doesn't know we're married. Yahya abdul mateen. Who doesn't know where married so that's awkward. But okay google john wig and all other. Did you think thing. I was talking. Isn't john leak. The person playing neo love you. What are you saying. Way board to bring me so much real stupid and jonah reeves plays a character called. John inlet movie john. We never heard what i thought. This was a white actor. I'd never heard of. I was like fuck. Is john nick. And how did he get the main role in the fucking matrix counter. Reeves places assassin man named john wick. Who runs around with a glock and several other guys. Much like the matrix. It's like a movie. Four weaves by weaves. It's just people who love john. Woo and like anime. John wigan matrix okay yes that is probably why undo the now. But you know you. Know laurence fishburne played morpheus in the matrix. Yes you didn't know. I even so i did not know the role. He played or what that means. But i knew he was in all. You need knows that he was in. That's really all. That's now Is playing morpheus in the new movie. That laurence fishburne play laurence fishburne says he was not asked to come back to the movie that i don't like i feel i don't know i don't support that decision I just feel gross about it now. Everybody knows i love fish. Like i will watch that man in anything and it's actually sickening has been able to get all these like between black manta candyman Doctor manhattan and then now morphine. Like he's in a couple of years planes iconic fucking roles but to me like you can ask the doll to come back in any fashion not even like zord on from power rangers where he's just like a virtual okay. You know like nothing and please don't before you get super nerdy with me. Anybody at home. I know that there was a game called the matrix online. That was supposed to be can and more his dies in the game and that's probably why he's not in this and comes back looking like something else when in reality. It's probably just the fact that they wanted somebody who could do backflips and jump out of window. Dual wheeled guns and stuff that would look younger and cooler doing it. That's probably found not to mention fine. Fine those of us who don't know nothing about the major associated. I don't give a fuck what happened in that movie. I'm going to look the same way. The girls who have never seen tony. Todd candyman were front. Ready to die like he's just gorgeous. What's going to buy the ticket. Anyway i'm probably going to watch it on. Hbo mex. because of course. I'm going to. But i don't feel strongly about it. I just wanted to share that. Okay well thank you for letting those feelings be now the vm. As on sunday not going to spend too much time on them because watch him. I didn't watch. Let me real. I watched the Performances many of the performances via the tube of you or we or us and I feel like that was good enough for me. I didn't even watch all of the performances. I kept it to just the negro the ones you knew that you want to watch. I mean no the ones. I felt i had an obligation to watch. That's probably people now. Because i watched lot performance not wanting to do that. A lot of big lotto mulatto she performed. She did several times. She did little two and a half minute sets like three times. She did that bitch from the south song that i like and then two other songs. I don't know so. I tried to watch the. I could not even get through the bitch from the south window. And i think it's because tv has to do all that censoring for like jerk the live ema's and there are some songs where you just need to let the cuss words 'cause it don't hit the same without and that's one that's one of them so good for her. I didn't know this us farming. I knew that she was there. Because i saw her on the red carpet. But i didn't know they had her performance as more than once. It was actually a pretty good look for her. All things considered. I'm imagining but Yeah i watched all the people with negro at least one negro yrant since she calls herself a mulatto. Well you're with you're going by lotto now. That's much cuter name because everybody was like girl. This is so terrible. Police that associates find like damn is big earned right so no performed wild side and i remember there being like some kind of about how v. means didn't ask to perform at first and then fans like what the fuck is your actual problem. Have you never heard of black chrome magic are you stupid. Did you not see video. Do not know that she's queen of things and so then much like mulata when her name feick. You're right. I mean she literally was like would love to perform the vietnamese girl. What's up. So i understand why the stands were like we will get it done and i'm glad they did because it was one of the best performances other night key cleared it from what i saw and i'm gonna just assuming all the black people did better than all the way people so i'm gonna assume that this was one of the best performances at night. Sorry you aren't like the standup performances. Anyways she was great. The choreography obviously is really good. the outfits references in like tributes obviously to a little taste of sierra american seer introduced her performance. Obviously janet jackson might be wrong But yes off Veasley also stellar erotic to janet and her velvet robe offer you. Would you mind ass tour performances where she was strapped to a crucifix on stage and then put her into them home and left they wives. You literally watch like you. Can you can pinpoint the exact second that this nigga makes a messing so like you can do. It is right there like janet. It was really doing like mine tricks on these negative onstage and sending them home like. I hope you had a good time. We're gonna t-shirt to see her perform. Yes oh my god yes me too. I am I thank god. I never got to see michael jackson live. I hate that for neither. But i have seen janet. Oh my god or whitney which okay..

"Chee and the legend of the ten rings which comes to theaters this weekend. It's directed by destin. Daniel cretin the director of twenty thirteen's very good short term twelve also twenty teams of the glass castle and twenty nine nine hundred. Just mercy with michael jordan. It stars seem ulu as the title character along with hong kong acting legends. Michelle yeoh and tony. Leon aquafina is also in the ensemble. The clip we just heard has yo talking about the burden of legacy something shonky. The movie has to deal with. It's the second feature in phase four of the marvel cinematic universe following black widow. Josh you have seen shonky how is marvel doing with these first couple of films in the post game world and please sprinkle the word phase into this review as much as you can okay. I can't promise. I'll be able to pull that off You know black widow. I was very mildly positive on. Didn't really need it at the end of the day or didn't let's just say it didn't live up to what it could have been for me. But she has jumped up to be one of my top five favourite. mc films this is. this was a wonderful surprise. Didn't know much about the comic book itself. Didn't know much about Lou who is a real find in the starring role. Here he's funny. He's an incredible athlete in the fight. Sequences and also very compelling as a dramatic presence. To so so yeah. Why am i so impressed by this. Well i don't need to tell listeners. Who have been following our one car. Marathon that tony. Leon is going to be a huge plus in any movie but he gets a really good role here. This is one of the better marvel villains. He has a lot of screen time and of course he brings that same melancholy to a apart. That is this is a sad villain. It's you know short hand in our house during this marathon has been for tony. Leon has been sad cop and and he's kind of like the sad villain here and it's it's really effective in terms of the film. The other thing. I would say why this is so good is those action scenes are excellent and you know not just in one way either there are. You can clearly see. Jackie chan influence in an early fight sequence on careening city bus that uses everything on the set or in the bus in this case so the seats the polls even the signal cord. It's kind of a piece of comedy as much as it is an action scene and it's a pure delight but then you also get sequences in involving tony. Leon that are more in the style of The wisha tradition. Something like ashes of time from one car y or on these crouching tiger hidden dragon where it's a more elegant style of fighting. That has a real psychological component to there are there are reasons. These characters are sparring. That have to do with who they are as characters and the narrative and it's not just a fight scene for a fight scene sake and there are multiple. There's more than just those two. There are multiple really good fight sequences in this. I should say the fight director. The supervising stunt coordinator and the second unit unit director is brad allen who sadly passed away just before the film's release but should definitely get some credit along with his team for the work. That's done here in terms of the stunt choreography in fight sequences and then the last thing. I've talked on the show adam about how i found it very tired. That the mc relies on the punch plzen this reverberating thaad you get after a superhero. Hit someone or uses a weapon to deliver a punch pleasure and you get that here. Of course the ten rings themselves as a weapon do that but the movie is also kind of an examination and there's a lovely recurring visual motif. Where fists are opened up even during some of these fight sequences to demonstrate something else and how that changes characters. It's something that's a through line. That's incredibly thoughtful in the movie. It involves tony lungs character even his final gesture. So yeah all of those things made this a really strong m. you installment for me suffers from a few of the things they always do. The job takes over at the end. There's a little bit too much mythology and character backstory. But when i'm looking at this in the context of all the other movies we've gotten in the franchise. It's a really good one all right. I am in hope to see it this weekend. And maybe i will listen to you and see another movie that you recommend it's candyman the spiritual sequel to the classic nineteen ninety-two chicago set or filmed this one. Also set in chicago really talented. Cast looking at those two stars. Donna paris and yahya abdul mateen the second there has been a fair amount of divisiveness around this film just in terms of people being really all in in thinking it's incredible or wanting to love it and finding that it disappointed. Where do you fall josh. Yeah this is boy. The range of opinion on this one is maybe the most varied even more than net. I feel like any other film that has come out this year. It's going to be a harder sell for you. Adam not just because of the horror but there are clearly some some challenges and issues with the movie. I do like it. I'm a fan. And i'll get to what ultimately brought me over the edge but i also recognize there are just some storytelling issues. And it's almost like it takes too much in terms even thematically what it wants to be about and the weird thing is these are some of the same challenges that the original ninety two film had so it's almost like they weren't able to exercise those demons from the original in making this one but and this is a strong because i do recommend it and it has to do really with the style that decosta and The filmmaking team bring to this because the way this film even moves is in transit and it starts right at the beginning where the credits studio logos are inverted. Which is what would happen in a mirror. So there's a reference there of course to the part of the legend about saying his name in the mirror five times we get this incredible shot looking up at the chicago sky. That is i have to watch it again to know for sure. It's either moving backwards among the skyscrapers or it's being somehow slowly reversed their reversing the motion. But he is the easiest thing and that's also a call back to the original. Which has a hallmark. These really cool helicopter shots looking down on the city. So here we're looking up and we're already to stabilized at at the movie start and speaking of chicago pretty much entirely. Shot here really makes great use of the city and the architecture which of course we're both going to appreciate a but a location like marina city towers Which people call the corncob towers because of their strange. they're strange. look we get a scene there that is in one of those apartments which are all strangely. Pi shaped the entire building is circular and we walked down the hallways which have this weird way of curving and just setting the sequence. There and taking advantage of that locale is so effective. And then we get this great exterior shot that pulls away from marina city towers and reveals them to have sort of this honeycomb pattern which is another reference to the legend. How bees are involved. So there's a lot of visual inventiveness and intelligence going on here and that includes the last thing. I want to mention quickly. Is this shadow. Puppet motif that was actually designed by a chicago outfit manual cinema and it at first begins as something in the narrative a minor character is shown plane with shadow puppets as a boy but then dacosta will return to it later during exposition sequences. And we get these beautiful little like forty seven forty five second short films of shadow puppets that is not only aesthetically enthralling but the more i think about candyman this is very much about how ghost stories are told and what medium is used to tell them and how that affects the story itself so you have something like a puppet show you have a painting you know. The main character is a painter. And he's retelling the legend of candyman on his canvases. So that distorts the legend. And then you have. I mentioned this takes on a ton but like something like police reports. What did they say about the story because that is a concern of this movie as well as police violence so there are some really intriguing through lines in this even as it spirals out may be further than it than it should have but i definitely recommend it especially if you did find the original film intriguing. Those towers that you mention also famous in that. They are from the album. Cover yankee hotel foxtrot yes chocolate. Great chicago band wilco. I haven't read much about this movie at all. So i did one ask you. You mentioned its use of chicago as a setting as the location for this movie. And i haven't seen the original candyman since it came out. But i remember how it used cabrini-green as a location and as it turns out just a few days ago i was having a conversation with an african american woman. Who was telling me about how proud she was that she raised four sons in cabrini-green who all went on to be really successful again..

"Comedy is sports in in rapid. Maybe every ninety unbuttoned shirt and do some arm be they. Oh yeah okay. Visually some wrapping. Going only reason. Why i brought that up. Because i think that they're trying a little bit too hard to put that out there and they could slows the movie down. It's like you know what we can do this while keeping the story going along. But i'm glad to see i'm not. It's not like i'm disappointed. That didn't bother me. I don't mind having plenty of character setup. I think if you do a lot of character setup it pays off later when start going left like when somebody's distressed or somebody else's getting killed you actually have an emotional attachment to it. Well you know. I i'll tell you why i but i'm say i was one hundred percent on board with it for different reasons but i tell you why i don't think it worked out well with setting up all the characters because so much of this is is in the Is in the art world setting and it spins a lot of time talking art. I'm not even talking about setting up. These characters is being upstanding people standing black people. It's been a lot of time talking art with characters that i really don't care about our can't stand. These pretentious art type like every person is movies. Like i couldn't wait candyman to come in and kill these motherfucking man. What's your beef. While the the reason why because i don't think the stereotypes there all the all of these are the pretentious art people that you expect them to be. And i i was like i can wait for candyman to come in and kill these motherfuckers man. Just you know make splash a whole gallery with their blood man and make a sculpture out of their limbs. Because i'll tell you why because they're there to be either. They don't lend anything to the story at all other there to be those. Those snobbish art types you know the art critic who would talk. Show this woman right here. Rebecca spence the artist. who came. You know they look at your art in there the arts to come over so they can talk shit to your face about it. It all looked at that and like all right. You know what as not so not so bad but if they weren't stereotypes that we expect them to be. That would be better like actually. It's kind of funny What's his name. Yahya abdul mateen yahya abdul mateen. He plays anthony. Who is exploring the legend of the candyman. He's an artist and he decides to go in and tackle of social issues by doing art based on the candyman based on the story that we know about about the white woman that went in and ask too many questions about this and ended up snapping and possibly maybe being responsible killing some people including a baby are trying to kill a baby So as art is based on that and he does a gallery show and love the way this art critic comes in and just to his face. That's all the art jargon which is negative even. Looks like damn bitch you saying this right in front of me. She was just looking at. Pc came over like so. What do you think would happen. You good thing. I have some drinks because you sucked what this reminded me of. And this is why. I think that this might be a little tricky for some people out here. This reminded me of of another movie. That's out there. Let me see if i can find this here. Yeah that too yeah. This it's Is almost like a little bit of a slow version of this movie. You might remember. Netflix was called velvet busta..

"Teases out new relevance from a nineties. Horror classic by stephanie's mccarrick. Sometimes a movie arrives at just the right time as if it were reading. Society's collective mind candyman directed by nia dacosta an written by dacosta jordan peele and win rosenfeld is one of those movies a story rippling with ideas that many thinking people are already grappling with or at least have finally become aware of. This isn't a remake of the nineteen ninety. Two film directed by bernard rose and starring virginia madsen. Instead it's creators of called it a spiritual sequel a description that fits the bill if the earlier movie featured a white woman trying to understand certain fears and coping mechanisms and a specific black community. Chicago's cabrini-green housing projects whose demolition began in nineteen ninety-five. It was still almost all about her. The figure at the heart of this new candyman which uses the earlier film as a foundation is an up and coming chicago painter. Anthony mccoy yahya abdul mateen the second who's struggling to find his voice as an artist and yearning for recognition. His sudden obsession with the urban legend candyman jolts his canvases to life. Though it may not be the kind of life he wants. If you've never seen the original film you may have no idea who candy man is in that case the only directive is to never say his name five times while looking in the mirror or he'll appear behind you a murderous seeming black man in a long coat with a hook whereas right hand should be though this figure is fearsome invented at least partly so. The lower goes to keep kids on their best behavior. His story as roses movie. I outlined it is tragic. He's the ghost of a man who was murdered by white people in the eighteen nineties because he dared to fall in love with a white woman. The new candyman expands on that premise. There are actually many candy men who were similarly murdered and who returned in this particular form to wreak vengeance as a local laundromat proprietor. William burke colman domingo who had his own run in with candyman as a child explains to anthony. Candyman is how we deal with the fact that these things happened that they're still happening. Candyman spins out a lot of ideas at once. Anthony lives with his girlfriend. Brianna tena paris. Who's a massively successful. Art curator their home is a jaw dropping. Luxury loft that she pays for and abdul mateen conveys subtly. How this rankles anthony's masculine pride he wants to make his own way and he yearns for success things. Any artist might want but a longing. That's likely even more pronounced among black artists and other people of color. Anthony's fame escalates after one of his paintings plays a role in the death of a gallery owner. He knows he's becoming famous for the wrong reasons but he'll take it anyway and though he's trim and handsome at the beginning of the story he has plenty of time to work out anthony's frame becomes more lumbering and twisted as his candyman obsession intensifies. There's a fair amount of body horror here beginning with a beast deng hand that continues to fester and flake and if the plot is perhaps slightly overcomplicated it's for the most part thoughtfully worked out. It also makes room for actor. Tony todd reprising the role. He played in the earlier film. A respectful nod to the way movies take root in our consciousness periodically throughout the movie. The candyman legend is unfurled for us in a series of beautifully executed sequences of shadow. Puppetry these many plays within the play created by chicago collective manual cinema and evoking the bracing silhouette work of carol walker as well as the delicate innovations of animator alati reina gar are both discrete and direct in the way they depict the atrocities suffered by the men who will ultimately take the form of candyman simultaneously captivating and mournful there so effective. They could constitute a mini movie by themselves. Candyman is a work held together by thoughtful choices and it has a lot to say. Genre conventions are themselves like urban legends of framework that each new generation adds to and builds upon. Candyman is just one reason. We continue to believe in them..

"Yes welcome back listeners. I welcome back. Charles and candidate is always fun having other podcast so we can hear about what's going on on the other side of the pond. Anything exciting happening in the states. Right now Things are buzzing. You know everyone. I think in north america is kind of prepping for our best grasp at a normal festival season with toronto. Coming up where. They've got a handful of pretty big things coming to north for his time. And then beyond that New york folk festival which is really Festival of festivals which is usually what toronto calls themselves. But this year. That's more like new york. Because really bringing together all the big stuff from berlin and cannes and venice in physical screenings which is going to be tougher. Some of the people in toronto and so a lot of the stuff has been prescreened. Now as up berkman island. The new film from johansen love just yesterday which. I just loved wonderful film. Can't wait to write about it. I think more extensively because it is getting theatrical release later this year the states. Some looking forward to that cowboy. How're you doing because you have been changed by the neon genesis. Having gallium box sat there was announced. Just last week I immediately press purchase. I'm nothing if not predictable. I guess i was gonna ask shells like you said big things it. The new york film festival does that mean that they got cliff bigger dog and now tiff. Don't clifford clifford. The big red dog is too big for anyone film festival. I would say perhaps even too big for the silver screen itself clifford clifford. The big red dog should be. I love those immersive theatrical. Things that i saw a lot of adverts for when i was in london where there were like. Come immerse yourself in the wolf of wall street. Is this making any sense to anyone in. Yeah yeah that's the thing against should they. Yeah i don't know what i'm referring to. But that is really the only way that i can conceive of experiencing some total of clifford the big red dog. Well hopefully we'll have more about clifford. The big red dog later on in the year when we finally get to see its but for now. We've got lots. Get through this week to interviews but i wanna talk about it very buddy title indeed candy. Man's near dacosta directs this contemporary incarnation of the cult. Classic in a reboot produced by jordan. Peele the revisits the housing projects as chicago's cabrini-green neighborhood which were terrorized by would of mouth go story about supernatural killer with a hook for a hand easily summoned by those daring to repeaters name. Five times into a mirror so kelly. I made a huge mistake with this movie. I thought this was a reboots. It turns out. It's one of those reboot sequel jobs sorts of like I go back to superman returns. Which was a sequel to superman to forgetting. Seek three or four ever existed. I suppose the most. Recent example is halloween that reboot sequel from a couple of years ago. What this is a remake reboot a sequel. Lewis is no what they should have. They should prepare themselves with us. It's kind of all of the above. i think Halloween is a good reference point for audiences because it's one of those things where it pretends that the other sequels don't exist and the first one is the holy texts to which it must continue the new testament to cap and old testament. Something so this one has characters from original pretending that sort of family relationships between new characters and old ones and as a lot about the festival basically turned into a urban legend itself in the context of this new one so it is aiming to reward people who are familiar with the old one world introducing new people to what the candyman is. Maybe candy banned. Yeah does interesting. Sort of mixture hair is telling own with this group of characters like hipster artists who've moved into gentrified neighborhood which was td cabrini green in the original film. But then also the the law of the candyman as ted into this urban legend in the film has to address that at some point. Is that a mixture that pays off. Kimberly i somewhat liked the idea that they're going for in the opening where the original story has become muddled like through. It's been through this kind of tradition of oral storytelling. Like the original. Urban legend did in the first one and think details have changed so helen from the first one is the monster as opposed to gandhi matt itself. Like this white woman went crazy on the projects and started killing people which i thought was really interesting. And then a conversation about it devolves into people having roundtable about the meaning of the original candyman and then just any of the interesting stuff. F- amazed thrown out the window by that point and then it just continues hammering that home throughout the entire thing like it's a bit of a trend with this where introduces some interesting new. Twist on the. I guess the law of candy before stumping any subtext out of existence. Chows much-debated up. Yeah i think think the part that campbell is referring to which is i think. Maybe the most interesting part is there are all these Very involved pseudo. Academic chats between the artist character played by abdul mateen the second and A very haughty sort of Caucasian art critic who comes to his shows and they sort of exchange postgraduate about generational cycles of violence Which is fascinating both because it seems like nia cost The director would like to play. This is a joke but it's also very seriously her giving us all the answers to what she's doing with this film Which i think goes into what camp as talking about about how. She is constitutionally incapable of leading symbol. Set without giving us everything that we need to pass it. It seems like it's driven by an impulse to newton up everything that could be deemed quote unquote problematic about the original candyman. Does some talk about the first candyman being problematic as such because a lot of the victims Black in the first one.

Yeah and see how far you get. I didn't mind it wasn't bad but it didn't draw me and it didn't scare me or anything like that. I've seen this kind of thing before. Well speaking of seeing this kind of thing before a wildlife stat sneak peek. we have. I don't know what to call. It is a reboot. Is it a sequel. Is it a prequel sequel. You're going to get into those gabriel sequel. I like that yes. Candy man candyman dotes. You're not looking at the bureau. So that's okay. I'm not. But i am looking at a camera so i can't see myself so the count see that's a good question like that if it's That is a movie if you remember back in the eighties nineties there was the same of the movie of the same title. Yes that spooked the crap out of everybody. Tony on really really really was a disturbing movie when you see a a hive of bees kamata some ice and But anyway it really did. It took the industry by storm because it was marketed as an urban And i had quotes go in urban. Best by cold affected urban urban horror film. And you know it. It became a cult classic. As what has it became a cult classic because we have not seen this kind of i was gonna say murderer but that's a little too name is kind of this kind of terror. You know striking the projects. You know With this comes to us well first of all it's gonna come to you all in us on the twenty seven of august so that's just right around the corner. I mean boy. Either gonna listen to this and it's available that day or the day before so it really is one of those movies that they're hoping to get you into the seats and by they i mean of nia dacosta and we know who that is At by i also mean jordan. Peele uh-huh But he's not alone Win rosenfeld wrote with him and then nia wrote on top of them And you've got candyman and of course is coming to us from universal which jordan beyond belief has overall within and really bloom. House is under that so they really loved to get us into those seats and the question is with this cast which we have a very familiar lead Coming to us. And i'm going to butcher that for man's name but i'm gonna say y'all yahya oh ya ya okay Yahya abdul mateen the second. Who we know from watchmen a what i did say right emmy award winning yamaha and trial chicano seven so he really is buyer right now Tian paris along with nathan stewart. Jarrett and colman. Domingo this is gonna be interesting yes are all in it now the cast is it like overtly well known but neither really was the first handyman. So the question then becomes this. It's brilliant because you're gonna get all the gen xers out they want to see this again Then you've got this young fresh cast and you may get some gents. The millennials may come out. Maybe some gin xeres possibly. Is this something that we're going to brave the elements to go see. Wow i'm like how you posited that because the characters in here they are millennials. They are generation z. So that will pull them in which is not too far from genetics You know i'm in an interesting position. I'm like the last year of genetics for most sociologists very strange so i remember watching the original candy man and look me in the bathroom. We're going don't say a word. i say. Nothing in front of the mirror beetlejuice. Yes it sure is so. I remember being spooked out of my mind watching tony todd candy. Virginia manson very interesting. What they were doing with the people who were involved that say the carry. It was good this way it was early. The bay puller in this movie. Yes they do. Not current virginia from the pan. They get a prequel sequel thing. Yes exactly so. This is a continuation of that of we've shuttled forward of course in time to twenty nineteen now before we get to that early on we see in the seventies at cabrini-green a young kid in chicago and then chicago these kinsey basically. It's not a thing of well. Let's come back to that. Thank you very good. So his mom is like go do laundry full so he has to walk out. You know. it's the some some kissel kid walk out to go do the laundry. The cops are sitting outside. Why and he goes into the building and there's a hole in the wall from this whole comes a piece of candy keep it goes take it. Then he sees in the whole. You're careful because they're looking for suspect and the suspect has been harming killing children of. It's terrible do they get their man. What happens to this young boy as a result. Shallow forward from seventy seven to twenty nineteen like you said wrath could be cabrini green the projects. No plu there. We go again there. You go in its place. You know it's been gentrified i mean. Hey it's swanky as old folks would say swank okay and we are introduced to an artist and his girlfriend. They lived together. who's a gallery director. The artist is tony played by gallery. Director brianna is play by tian and boy. Oh boy they live in it. Up and chicago formerly cabrini-green. I'm saying that the windows alone are enough of whatever they pay now. We're introduced to them via the eyes of beyond his brother so the brother he has a new boyfriend wants to bring the boyfriend meet a sister and they come and have dinner and all of that. They're having a good time and the brother decides to tell a scary story. Of course why is it always a weird family member to tell scary story Now the reason he does it is to change the subject. You'll see what that is. Okay let me tell you scary story. He dims the lights he puts on the candles. And what story does he tell. Events are what. I don't know i didn't say so. You will see but this leads to a certain curiosity because tony. Has it been creating work for a long time. It's been brianna who's been bringing in the bread. But he gets inspired and he finds out about candyman because he goes to visit the local neighborhood and meets a man play by colman. Domingo now for me he goes telling you terry run played there. The logged rabat. I'll be get out of that or keith david or david. Keith eck never broke david store you get out of there keep david infamously from requiem pruitt forgery. Come on david keith. Or keith takes covert is there. And when i love him while colbert as if you don't know colas work everybody. He's a stage actor at sometimes. What he's talking and playwright but sometimes when he's talking you can hear the stage fiction and love it out this. I won't tell you when just look for it. There's a passage what he's like. I will bester these words. We love so he tells tony about the legend of candy and this inspires. Tony come up with a new exhibit. he needs. I mean because you know the guy who found him and put him in into an exhibit. Right out of graduate. School is like. Where's the work of the only one not showing me get it together. You can't just run off your girlfriend. So this pc comes up with is attached to candyman. How's it received a little critical comes in hobbits. What does she think about it. And all of this is about gentrification of course so what they've done is taken the candy man legend and made it now made it woke made it all of that kind of stuff okay. It's comments on brutality and justification but beyond that what it is they're trying to reclaim that gentrification narratives. So what's the pain that leads to it with the pain. That's underneath it. And what are the pain or the things that are painful that come as a result of it. Is this a horror film or is this a what is happening. Well as a result of this people say candyman five times in mirrors. No what happens there. I mean when he first goes to The place where the candy man was. He gets stung by a bee Okay we'd see bees all over the place beyond saying it is not no. You'll look we know to behind. Don't say nothing about beyond say they will send you but not like this. I'm summer at nine ideas. None of these about that like three times. So this is. That's a good question though rest because this reclamation of that it was stale to me sale now. They are referencing. Virginia madsen from the first film of course because she got all this attention because she was a white woman now or is that still the case. There's this whole thing going on the whole moment. Were in now. And i just saw. They did a survey on this The tv industry people outside of it. How are they receiving. woke business. Essentially do you think that. Tv is to walk. Do we think movies are too okay. I would say this. And i've always said if you're going to do something in portland you can't forget strong storytelling. The story is i. I'm over it where the scares this. Wasn't stary the pacing. Pick it up. I mean it's an hour and a half about but still pick it up and it's supposed to be entertainment. You need to let it speak for itself instead of teaching. There's a moment when they literally teach you history like okay. You know before the scary story that whole thing that whole scene. I'm like all right and then throughout the movie the more you teach the less profound it becomes the viewer needs room to think and breathe on their own without your directions now aesthetically. I liked a lot of the choices. Okay so mia directed littlewoods before an indie movie was tested thomson told you know. She has a certain sensibility. The aesthetics i didn't mind even when sometimes there's like this They illustrate certain things in an interesting way. So those choices. I thought recalled. There's some technical skill here. It is smooth like it's smooth presentation the performances for the most far were smooth as well and i think for the writing. The dialogue could be troubling because of the teaching part of it but the best idea they had was the incorporation of a black artist who now lives amidst the trappings of privileged in a revitalised cabrini. Green and his obsession with the candyman legend. You'll see what comes of that and there's something going on in his background and in brianna background comes to earth. So i think that could have been mined more to anchor this film without the didacticism. Oh that's him without now. You're teaching without falling off a cliff at the end. So look here's the point. And i'm done horror films the to be scary or fun or both. Or what's the point. So what. I go to see this in theater with. Not i would not the first one to me. Scared me out of my skin. Oh yeah everybody. Every al. This did not But it is polished. The thing i was thinking ref to answer this question was if you were in theater of people would like enhance the experience. Yes i don't know there's just too much of the we're going to be profound to make points and stuff just staring the people at pants like come on. You gotta do that. I is it bad. i wouldn't call it bad. I would say it's mediocre okay. Well these this is something that you can see. Starting mugs twenty-second twenty seven in theaters. Right now. that's the only way to see it and remember this coming to us from universal so it isn't like Hbo max where they simultaneously. Release it on you. You're not going to be able to see this on peacock right now eventually. I'm sure but not right now. The original peacock the arith- i obviously i avoided the question who is candyman now. But we won't we won't go into maybe there's more than one. Maybe there's more than one. I knew you would give us a lot to to do on but the night house is something that you is currently in the theaters and it was feeling that probably won't be available wide On-demand soon but you have to go to the theater to see the.

"So we don't have this issue again at the thing. Run us who. Yeah it may just made for all we know may just continue to just be a continuation of what we've seen so far. I don't know simulation. can you have right. Presumably a lot infinity. Right don't there's no going into the past says keanu reeves. There is no official plot synopsis. For of the matrix for yet but keanu reeves has teased that the love story between neo and trinity will continue to be the backbone of the story. The original trilogy ended with nieto's presumably death or as reeves put it in an interview. Last year things looked a little dire for neo and trinity died as well science fact when she was impaled by debris after their over. So yeah no. She's she's she did she did. She trinity and neo finding their way back to each other after years apart prevent some kind of evil threat that seems to seems like a new natural natural entry point for the matrix for reeves has described this screen. Play as a beautiful script. That is a love story. It's inspiring the actor added. It's another vision of kind of wakeup call. And it has some great action. All will be revealed when asked if the matrix four would be a prequel and show events from before the original nineteen ninety. Nine movie read only provided this tease. No no no going into the past although he probably had it more like he anna reeves. Yeah that actually makes me happy. You know let's go forward. Let's let's tell news stories. we don't need to. They don't need they don't need to bank on on what they already have. It's already there right. They didn't need to live on on what what's already come before steve. Can i meet you at camera to sure. Hey have you noticed the richard and catherine they both have like stuff but he kind of looks like a kinda looks like records. It looks like silver records. So i was wondering whether or not you felt more comfortable as a dj with this but this is more like eyeballs. Like we were literally staring at you. Perved boots jack. Tests of lack of the texan comes in chime china on videos. You'll see my glasses. Being like my isaac classes nova. The thing is that will continue to ask you questions. You'll be like okay. That's still there and so next on the list is it will change filmmaking again. Says jessica fenwick. Neil patrick harris stirred up buzz and september. Twenty twenty by suggesting jesse was changing up. The visual style of the franchise for the upcoming fourth outing fans are waiting for the footage to drop to see what tea means. But in the meantime cast. Member jessica hardwick. I'm sorry kennewick. Said we're cherokees. Filmmaking will change the industry that's a bold statement there's there's definitely moments on the set where Yahya abdul mateen. The second and i look at each other and we go matrix for those pinch. Me moments told comic book in twenty twenty Yeah chelsea is doing some really interesting things on a technical level in the same way that you know. She created a style back. then. I think she's going to change the industry again With this phone. There's some camera rigs that. I've never seen before that. We're using that probably all like that's all i can say for that so looks like they're doing some innovation which is always welcome for me..

"I think we would hear it. if I mean they would make a big announcement if because it is kind of a big accomplishment that they're even doing a fourth so when they get it in the ken or at least ready for a post production. We're gonna know about it. What is i think it in post production is that they did have. They started filming early last year. A covert shut down there resumed filming september and then they finished a earlier this spring and they've been in the spill scheduled to come out in december. So yeah they didn't push it. Yeah because originally was supposed to come out in may But kobe did not happen to come out. May twenty twenty one but they pushed it back to december so far. It hasn't shifted from the december release data. Oh that's going to be a busy month. So i i got this from andy wire. It's the matrix for guide. Nineteen details to know about the return of the iconic action franchise. A lot of workshops keanu reeves. Carry out moss. All back for a return trip to one of the most iconic action franchises of all time with the matrix for fast approaching indie wire breaks down every major detail. We know about the sequel. So far new updates will be added below. Bob also you know as they get more information. They'll they'll add to this list but so right now we've got nineteen to run down. Just do it Keanu reeves coming in at number nineteen. I believe keanu reeves left cast starstruck while filming yahya abdul mateen. The second told the hollywood reporter that he was starstruck onset when ken reeves arrived to film their i seem together He's says i remember keanu and his first line. The actor said i looked up and there was keanu and i said oh shit i really in the matrix and it was just hannu in that voice and the technology that lana incorporated in the filmmaking camera rigs that i've never seen before it was so ambitious. It was really interesting to be making the matrix for at a time when the world was so warped and when reality was so distorted it could creep in a little bit if you let it. That's okay. yeah do. I need to know that about the matrix four. That's very fascinating article. But yes no canneries star. Do you need to know anything about no. You don't need to know any of it thing. Being caddy laurence fishburne is at peace with not knowing why he's left out. Orange fishburn is at peace with all the questions. He's getting about the matrix. For despite the fact he was never invited to join the next installment of the ica iconic action franchise. I believe they're going to say iconic action franchise in every one of these things anyway. Fishburne recently told collider when he was asked if he's getting tired of being asked about matrix for questions It would make sense that people would ask me that so it doesn't get old. I'm not in the next matrix movie. And you'd have to ask lana while my because i don't have an answer for that..

"Actually on the get down because that was an exhaustive product mall job. Yeah began the the sort of expectation levels were just absolute highest and and i just kind of was in some level in survival just to kind of continue to produce on. Tv's very demand tv. Schedules filming schedules can be very very very demanding. That was certainly the case and was on allston and at a moment on the get down where we sort of in the middle of everything towards the end of our shooting schedule. Doing huge you know sequences and we had a saturday day. Where vogue was gonna come to shoot a store rate and any liebowitz shooting at and shooting. Some of the costumes than i. You know headrest Yahya abdul mateen. Who's playing cadillac in his cadillac suit. Which was like a whole thing now. Romantic strike talk about that sued for hours. Yes and and he was shooting in. Baz was there and i had a moment where he just went to another part of the studio we were shooting and i just sort of pinched myself as i taught who the fm. I you know here. I am daughter of cuban immigrant. Who broke her back for my whole family works. Very hard has has always worked worked very hard to afford me the opportunities to get an education to allow me to follow my dreams to to be pursuing this creative career. That was sort of you know not you know. It's you head your bets. You know you don't know what's going to happen. You just know that you believe in what you do and you work really hard at and who the hell am i that i've gotten into this spot at felt like a pinch me moment and i have those very often and i don't take anything that i do for granted. I really work hard at everything i do. I believe very strongly and have a lot of conviction and the design process. In what i can bring to the table creatively but i feel incredibly lucky that whatever channels whatever. It is little choices. Big choices that i've made in my life that they've led me here and i'm.

"Teach me things that i literally used for my work today. Which is there's no such thing as a small role. Every single character feels as if they're coming from someplace or they're off to someplace else they're all completely lifted so no matter if the have three lines the entire monologue you will remember the character right. I remember i mean again. I i confess. I haven't seen the movie. But i remember it's about kind of a small community and as more committee. It's a super charming movie about About community actually. It's a movie about and what it means to actually living in community with a bunch of other people. So what do we leave on. what do we have. And it's it's similar to nine days in the sense that it's about small moments and if the small moments that count them so small moments that actually leave you. Rich money is great but it's community it's experience as lavin. It's people that actually make you wealthy. And that's the that's really the takeaway in the morality the moral play around waking that divine beautiful irish film. I i i'm gonna i'm gonna find a once it emerges on one of these streaming services and broza curious as came out in ninety eight. It was asleep head when he made like fifty million dollars like nobody was acting it. And it's like the log. Wine is when lottery winner dies of shock. His fellow townsfolk attempts to claim the money. But it's as you say obviously so much more than that and an kluber charming. It's exceptionally funny. It doesn't play by like hollywood's rules of like beautiful people doing interesting things right so as these people are beautiful. Because they're real they're all like stage based irish actors and they live in every single moment and they look like people around you so you like leaves you not staring at their faces and escaping into their beauty this leaves you really following the story and you love it as well as funniest every tournament. I love that you selected because it it's unexpected in the best possible way So you you you know. I mean it's really so you talk a little bit about childhood. Let's jump ahead a little bit. Because i know you went to yale. School of drama. And i've spoken to a couple of your buddies from back then. I've certainly talked of lupita i had yahya abdul mateen the second on a i think right before the shit hit the fan on the pandemic and he was telling me a happy stories of you helping move in. I believe he did. Did you find like a community. A friend group a new kind of level of camaraderie in the arts. Once you got there. Yeah i believe. I did and the cool thing about yale. School of drama as they really promote healthy competition right and they promote healthy competition performance. So if you're in a play you encourage each other to make big wild bold choices that are rooted in the given circumstances and when someone does that then encourages you to do something even wilder and then you end up topping each other and it's very interesting so usually are plays which is be so exciting because all that is happening that cultures you know happening in real time and it's exciting because anything can happen on any night someone throws the ball and you better be ready because you have to catch it and throw it back hardy. Throw it in the harder you throw it. If you're person's ready and willing it's magic and was like nothing else so that was. That was your school of drama and that was a community. Because you had so much trust at times the bonding would be so rich so off off stage in private moments in know you you really felt like you were being seen in a different way than sometimes society was willing to see you. You know We was telling me like me. He was kind of portraying you as kind of a big man on campus and a mentor to them in some ways he taught you a bit about. And you've kind of alluded to this already. I mean physicality is always a huge aspect of talking to any actor but especially someone like you. Who's like i mean. You are archer than life. Walk into a room or you can't take your eyes off of you But you know like that like that trade off right like that. You know more than anybody like. There're preconceived notions of what the sky is what he's about but it seems like you early on knew how to play with that. Had contrast that had a fight against that or go with it. Can you talk to me a little bit about like the negotiation with your own your own body with your own physicality figuring out what to do with what god gave you all that. That story in itself was an relief filled with a lot of positive memories that that's filled with narratives survival. I'd choose to essentially learn how to use my body and understand hyper visibility and how to survive through it. Because if i learned really young as a young man and i wasn't all i was never looking for it. It would just be trusted on me that everyone's watching you runs watching you. You're a tall because you're you're big you're black and it makes your small movements really visible. If you just touch someone gently it's whoa. He's touching them every stand too close. It's like why is this person not even to close. Because i learned that people can feel my presence from maybe six feet away right. And i don't really need to do very much at times to be visible so when you then take that context out of like a fine happy social space where you all choose to be with each other having fun in your playful. And you're just at.

"What would you think of what we saw. I i love. I love wes. Anderson's well. I think the i haven't seen i love dogs but that would be the only one that i haven't seen. I've enjoyed everything about his art direction. The pacing tone everything about a wes. Anderson movie is something that i've always. I sit down and i have a good time when i watch it So that looks great. For instance doorman is an engaging in magnetic Actress no matter what and timothy xiaomei looks like looks like he's doing a great job and also fearless actor it takes. It takes a lot of gumption to be naked in front of frances mcdormand. Right and be naked on camera period at all. But he at frances. Mcdormand's there that really i would. I was in the pool. It's cold okay. So next on the list is Yahya abdul mateen. The second is young. Morpheus in matrix four so this news just dropped today to over the last few weeks We hear giant freaking robot. This comes obviously from giant dropping exclusive right four and now we have another one that ramp up some excitement for this much anticipated film will lay out its story according to our trusted improve sources We know that ya ya abdul mateen. The second will play in this. I'm sorry how did i totally read that wrong. No no. I'm not playing yet. Oh my team. The second will play in this next film. He's been cast as a younger version of morpheus in the film and will play a digital version of the character. So we saw even though laurence fishburne isn't reprising the iconic his are part in this upcoming flick. More re morpheus will indeed live on in the matrix franchise And and i know laurence fishburne. I think is a little sour about that but really yeah. I think i think so. But regardless of that an awesome actor. And what do you think Playing a digital version of the character. How does that. How does that land for you. I mean obviously it's a matrix And i don't and having read that and having sort of gone over the possibilities of how that performance will present itself how morpheus will present himself in the movie. He's is why i am to playing like a digital version. Sort of like the actor who played grandma. Tarkenton rogue one. Or is he. Playing the matrix version of morpheus. Who is now a program or an echo of it sounds. It sounds to me like the ladder. But i didn't consider the former soon haven't had time to sit on that. I think it's from from the from the source that we have right here. It's it's a little ambiguous. But i do think i did i. I do think it's going to be the character. He'll play a younger version. Of morpheus in the matrix so the digital version of you know what i mean but but it because it doesn't seem like it's going to be some kind of de aging more obnoxious agent but like mo cap i've known. No that's an interesting interesting events will it. I'm gonna throw it on the pile of things that i don't know about the matrix for And i'm fine with that. I didn't know anything about the The matrix when i saw the first time it was one of the most brilliant pieces of marketing in the history of marketing. Saying you can't be told with the matrix. Is you have to see it for yourself. That was perfect. So i can go into the matrix for not knowing what the heck is going to go on but i am i. I don't i don't know what to expect until at least see a teaser or as some some indication as to what is happening now in terms of the plot. It looks like the film will be set. Sixty years following the events of matrix revolutions And in this world. Zion is no longer but The machines and the humans are living in relatively The shaky peace. So i don't know this all. It begs too many questions. That i think the only way i'm gonna know is when the credits roll at the end of the movie. Yeah well we won't have to wait too long right The is scheduled to release the end of the year in december yet. So we'll be looking forward to that. I do believe that's day and date So if you do have. Hbo max you will be able to see the matrix for for free like me. So good for us next on the list Pixar dropped trailer today about a movie. That i didn't hear no. I don't think anybody who knew this was coming out. It's called turning red and the teaser trailer. Drop today. so let's jump into that. We'll get our thoughts on the other side. All right guys the rattig formula. Let the fun begin. Who could tell me how the ford equals..

Because i become a big fan of jordan peels horror movies. I love the fact that he focuses on african americans the movies which is such a dumb point but it's so vowed has never been african american stars in horror movies i that was one of his big reasons why he did get out and he did us and here. He is with one of the greatest. I guess killers and movies ever. That was played by the by the great tony. Todd for years candyman. Yes you had this. Listen like this great. Because this is the perfect jordan. Peele joint with with candyman. Who was an african american horror. Movie killer is so perfect. And what jordan. Peele does so. Well is the marketing of movies. Because you think about get our in everybody you know you have that injury in your head right of get out and that it also had a social message but then i'm us with the scissors. I sort of imagery with the scissors. That an music. He always has a really cool soundtrack and and it becomes a thing like pop culture thing where everybody talked about scissors. Movie came out and then this time around because it's candy man what brings out the candy man from evil john. The previous films is looking in the mirror and saying candyman five times. And so you not. You're going to have people joking about that and doing it on their social media. And you know it's going to be one of those talking points like will you say candyman five times yahya abdul mateen. Who is the star. Also exciting to me because he is a nominal And but he's not. Here's the thing jordan. Peele is not directing it. He is producing and writing it. But he's not directing this lines via dacosta this directing it so you know his fingerprints are gonna be all over it though. I mean look at it. Feels like jordan peele. So yeah i just love. I love the like once again. It's it's kind of the cheesy horror movie trope. It's not cheesy and the trailer. Will they do say it. Five girls in the ladies bathroom set. And then you know wacky nece ensues as they're all murdered so i'm really excited about this one like i said i love. Jordan peels movies and to me. This is a pleasant surprise. Because as you know nikki i don't follow along with anything that's going on. Let's say talk to you soon as soon as i saw this. This is great. I can't wait to go and ask talking to you because we can be frank but number two. I'd rather be chris. But i always get your. I always get your take on things. Because i'm always trace my send you these long less like westlands. You're going to be excited about because it's your unpredictable which i love. I kind of know what your vibe is. But i ain't Users bigger ones were parking ones. I never you're gonna be like. Oh my gosh. i'm so excited about this. And i can yes. I thought this might be one. But i'm happy to know who you are. And there's ones that. I kind of put in my like okay. I'll i'll wanna see us in the theater possible but for me to spending so much time on planes especially now that we're going to be going. I'll be traveling cross country back to la quite a bit going overseas. God willing soon. I always have my airplane movies. For example one of my favorites of all time was baby driver. I really had no real interest in seeing the theater. But i kinda wanted to see it. I watch the planet watched it two times there because it was so great. So i'm i'm sure some of these will fit that category as well. Yeah that's richard also has a movie coming out this summer smaller movie which i didn't put on the list but yeah i'll text you after you can check it out and two more films to talk about one super excited about one that have to just say because we're gonna laugh us up. I i wanna leave. Let's the one that gave old m night shamma. Ding dong.

"Adidas. That's an incredible version 2 with an Andrew Dice Clay making an appearance in his version as well. Right? I can't you can't do anything wrong in this jokes the best part about the joke about the monkey their fellow the tree. He said You Know, Jack and Jill T shows. I got a couple of TV shows. I'm not going to go to too far into them to Comedy Big Bang Theory. I'll watch the show no matter what grade is very wrong. I won't pick on you for that. I'm going to consider it a guilty pleasure cuz it's so like Cookie Cutter but it is very watchable and as I can get it to next show though, one of my crushes. I'm all timers in this and it's not the male Stars. Okay. So Captain America. Okay Leah Remini Scientology outer whistle blower and that makes her even more sexier. Let's say I remember her from Saved by the Bell. So I had a crush on her way before King of Queens. What else do you have? So for me this one is going to make me seem silly but I'm not going to lie America. I love to every episode of the show and there were a couple of episodes it made me kind of tear up and this show is also on my iPod and I know you will not like this one but Glee, I mean it's an incredible show it covered all the bases. They had a bunch of great covers and sure not everyone was a gym, but I love those crazy kids from Glee But ultimately I love that show and what it represented while it was on so that would be a guilty pleasure and actually own a dog. Seasons that I can go back to it every once awhile. Well speaking of Glee This is on not my list but do the Glee project when that came out and there was like they were looking for the next cast. Yeah, I think so. Yeah, I didn't watch it but I remember vaguely there's another show out there which is going to be a future guilty pleasure of mine Zoe's extraordinary playlist. Very very low. Yeah, it's actually really really charming and it's got a couple of people from work on their exactly, you know, her best friend is one of the people that was in the Glee project great and that's going to be a guilty pleasure show going forward. I love the way they do songs. They nice thing is like that show again, like all good TV shows we talked about Ted lasso before they sneak emotional moments in and it's a fun show to watch and the music is fun. Everybody's really attractive. But then there's a real job yet relatable emotional stuff that just hits you in the stomach and Zoe's is probably it's a perfect like piece that carries on what Glee did maybe what scrubs did shows of that nature and I really liked it. I didn't finish that first page. So what I'm going to go back and finish it and I'm in for the second seat. There's another show. It's almost similar to that which was on and I walked the two similar to the song and dance portion. And that was crazy ex-girlfriend. Another really good. Well written show me the same thing. But I have I have another one also two of them. I will watch them. I've been watching them since the Inception Law and Order. I've watched every single season. I know every Lenny one-liner from Law and Order from the older and the other one same thing CSI the One filmed from Vegas that original CSI. The grism is mostly very good guilty pleasure shows familiar with computers and the first the original Manhunter their first got to meet dr. Lecter in a movie you have anything else for I don't know what else I would say as a guilty pleasure. I don't have as many that I watch anymore in the very fact first few episodes of Ted lasso. I would have been embarrassed to admit I really liked it. But now I think people are catching on and it's just a really good show. I did like probably more than I should have. What is it a little fires everywhere not because it was well-read. Cuz I'm not sure it was but just because Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon going at it was so just couldn't take your eyes off of it. So every once in a while, like I like one of those soap operas. I miss my old Melrose Place type show that would get me through like a Wednesday or a Thursday night. So I'll let you onto one of those every once awhile that and just a quick shout to ID channel. I for just like everybody else in America. I just want to see people die and I always want to blame the wife. Typically the husband great shows on the old channel Oxygen all those channels the worse. A document the better show the more I like it. Well, we can the wicked people find this Ted. Lasso last I was on Apple TV, and I'm telling you where about Nine episodes in I think it's released every Friday. It's 20 to 25 minutes. It moves quickly quick like a bunny and it's Jason Sudeikis from Saturday Night Live. It's incredible stuff. You haven't seen this show yet. I promise you don't judge it on the first episode 2nd episode if you make it to three and four, it's going down. Is to win you over it's going to warm your heart cool. I mean Apple TV now they have three shows that are worth watching on that. Yeah, sure 1 and 1/2. I'll give it to him. What a half. Okay. I tried the morning show couldn't do a jokes. If you want to question us and I think want us to answer any of your questions. You can always email us at East West with Nick and Rob at gmail.com used to us with Nick and Rob at gmail.com. And the Twitter handle that I say twice cuz Nick Campagna would be Nick and Robbie to W. That's Nick and rob me the number to w e the number two. W difficult. Let's go over the enemy's Rob will do a quick one quick go over the mhm. All right anything break your heart. All right. Were you mad that succession won best drama series. Were you surprised at my Breakfast at Tiffany's Holly Golightly one lead actress in a drama series and Daya for you a show that if you have children, you should never ever watch and then schitt's Creek just cleaned up the place that was surprising the funny thing about schitt's Creek and we can't do it because we're in a podcast. Is that everything? And they said it they had to put it on the screen with a dollar sign at the end. Even though it's spelled completely different. So the problem America you can't handle it which is why as they said Network vision is dying. This is why I will never have a peaceful transition. Grow up America. That's right. Because happy to Watchmen got some love Eugene Levy son. That was a big win. I was very happy for that Regina King. Obviously, there were plenty of things that made me happy. I don't I'm not a succession guy like a lot of people are so that one. Okay fine, but nothing really made me too mad and I was happy that people like Catherine O'Hara and Eugene Levy got some love that's well worth the session and Euphoria. I didn't watch either of them. I've seen them both. I tried both once you see McSteamy in Naval Destroyer Thursday, em, you know drooling over girls three times. So the younger than himself, so I was pissed Mark Ruffalo one not because that show wasn't good. I did try to watch it was really dead. I know why you just say the people playing between stopped doing that. I hate it lazy. Jean-Claude Van Damme. Give him an Emmy. Yeah. I know Tom Hardy did it. He's asking just don't forget. What a d Moyer also did it to listen? He's not exempt. It's on you Leonard that's on you man. Rest in peace. The only one who ever did a good was Armie Hammer in The Social Network. That's the only change how I stand by it. Oh, the finkelberg twins there if you would have invented Facebook, you would have invented Facebook get the fuck out of here great movie. You've seen vivarium yet. I have not and it's you know, what you gotta be in the right mood for something like that man. Yeah you do is that is a complete in mind five. Now the Watchman got a decent amount of love writing Yahya abdul-mateen had a great performance and obviously Regina King as we mentioned before, you know, I the one thing I would say about the Emmys is now that we're getting more into the nitty-gritty of these categories too many categories. Can we just group some things together? I know. Yep. Streaming networks a limited series and T movies and kind of weird to me. I'm sort of losing the thread on all these categories. Yeah, and then also the best episode and yeah, and there's like multiple episodes of one show that's confusing me. First of all, you can't tell me that one show can just completely continually just clean up over and over again. You just can't tell me that I mean, there are other fantastic shows out.

"To the phantom zone podcast i'm one of your co host charles skaggs back in the phantom zone once again ready to talk the penultimate episode of maybe season one of watchman and of course joining me is my fellow co host fellow watchmen watcher and just all around wonderful person jesse jackson how're you doing jesse it's august two thousand fourteen i'm talking to my friend charles skaggs for a new podcast called next stop everywhere else it is also december fifteen th two thousand eighteen eighteen and i am still talking to my good friend charles skaggs about watchmen did i see what you did this so i you you you obviously had that plan to advance yes i did yes that was very clever of you very thank you so obviously yeah here episode seventy we're gonna talk a god walks into a bar yes not a bar but APR as in calvin a bar and talk about that here shortly i don't know who came up with that punny title but good for them i have a little trivia on why how the title came him about oh good 'cause i'm watching this episode at the end i went this was amazing and then i started thinking about all the fans who used to complain about the sopranos nothing happened they just talk to each other no one got wacked right and i said new jersey yes bob voice yeah if someone says nothing happened this episode but angela and count honking you obviously do not understand this show or stain watchman yes because what's what's brilliant about this episode and we'll talk about this more is that it's structured in such a way that it it in itself it's it's a bootstrap strap paradox to use a term that recently got a lot of play on doctor who not too long ago where essentially it's the chicken and the egg argument where i don't know which one came first and that's kind of why i think eggs are kind of used as a regular metaphor in watchmen yes because of the whole time e y me s. especially with doctor manhattan that you know where something that happens in his future and create something in the past and and and it because dr manhattan experiences time all at once ons to him is just happening all at the same time his time but but obviously for someone like angela and we'll talk about this more that you know she's she has to you know walk the the long road and experiencing experiences events chronologically really so it's very different for her yeah so so this was album obviously episode eight of watchmen season one aired on december eighth twenty nineteen written by jeff jensen who was a major writer for entertainment weekly yes also he he wrote back in the nineties he wrote co wrote the DC comics series team titans so a little bit of a titan talk connection i i did not know that yeah he wrote that you know when phil jimenez was drawing team titans back okay these the teen the new titans spinoff series he's and as also obviously co written by damon lindelof directed by nicole castle who obviously directed the first two episodes of watchmen it's summer and we're running out of ice and martial feats of comanche horsemanship yeah so jeff was a huge lost experts yes and related articles and and he i think that's where damon lindelof i speak aware of him because he went into so deep in so theories that it i think i read an article once that damon said he would call him and go hey now remind me about this being a little bit cute but so i i thought it was good to see this this was a tough episode to write i it's got to be and it was so well done on right just very very cool yeah this is obviously coming from my writers perspective i i love the script for this i love talked how it all connected everything you know from beginning connected all the way through the end and it created this kind of tapestry and it was just so wonderfully executed that that obviously we're gonna probably give this one very high marks so state ten to that but absolutely the but yeah this is just i thought this was just outstanding in gal in general all right so that trivia i was mentioning earlier so the the title of the script a god walks into a bar you're now originally it was announced as god walks into a bar you know like the joke yes like you know like so-and-so so walks into a bar well apparently they decided to change it right before it aired or not right before it air but they apparently nick kept it secret obviously yes and apparently this title was just something happened randomly because apparently they gave gave the angela the surname abar early in development and then later as they were storyboarding episodes apparently director nicole castle saw that one of the writers have put down the words walks into a bar and so as a the concept for this episode and then upon seeing that they realize the you know how it it kinda played off the name a bar so we're just kinda wanna list things that worked perfectly and especially obviously the meaning you know where you have dr manhattan entering the deceased body as we find out out of bar so that was kinda fun that i mean this is a genius title there's been some great titles and i'm looking there are shows that could learn i'm looking you titans on how to do better episode titles right from the show because the each of these titles once again i gushing all over the show but when you have the bar of the watchmen miniseries series graphic novel whatever you wanna call it those twelve issues is such a high bar and when you say yeah i'm going to do this and then when you you do it so well it's just something really impressive yeah it is and obviously the cast really steps in this one regina lina king is phenomenal yahya abdul mateen the second who plays cow and dr manhattan does a phenomenal job i think think obviously there's a lot of you know i'm sure some fans were put off by the because oh no dr manhattan's black now yeah but you know and and we get to see dr manhattan with yaws features facial features so that was a little different we got to see him with normal all eyes and i know some people have problems with that that's on them yeah 'cause i'm sitting here watching this because he's phenomenal in this yeah and and it's the first off i know that often john lewis shows do not get a lotta oughta love in the emmys you know slide i would hope because it's HBO yes and because you know game of thrones owns is kinda broken that you know barrier air some love on this yeah because it's just amazing and i i think i still think there's a stigma regarding comic book shows though and superheroes shows if it involves superhero apparently the emmys are just like no no this is you know we're we're serious artistes we can't do this but once again as we're sitting here talking about it you go how well put together is this and and the performances are are amazing and this show is about something this show is about relationships it's about race in the modern world and and so that's why the idea and we'll do a crossover point right right we just talked about where john on creditors lex luther is in smallville and he says to infinite earths the class over event that we talked about heerden jordan lab right and so there is lex luther says while he's talking to tom welling who is clark kent apparently in this world superman is clark kit it could never happen anywhere else because he can't imagine and that's been a common theme on in dc comics that luther cannot imagine jin someone having as little bit of an ego as clark kent and superman to pretend to be somebody that you you know small when you're big and so the idea that like your god why would you give up that to to play human and so here here we have a god in this universe that not only gave up his god hood but did it to do an african american male is just an interesting being thought so well done watchmen and you know obviously we would just go ahead and start talking about a topic so topping number one we're gonna talk about obviously john and angela so this is dr manhattan and sister night how those two crazy kids hooked up in the first place and how john got that little device in his forehead yes that angeles kind enough to dig out with a claw hammer and here kitchen last time so jesse i know you we've got a lot of thoughts about this but but what was your take obviously on on john and angela and the way john introduces himself to her and these these to form their relationship and we get the back story of of how documenta hatton became calvin abar so she's in the bar and kind of i won't in saigon yeah it's two thousand two thousand nine saigon i think it was kind of funny in two thousand nine that's the year the watchman movie came out yeah and and their she's in her police uniform and she's drinking and there's obviously some kind of celebration going on because it's the anniversary of win i i assume it's something to do with the win document document hatton won the war in vietnam right started its path to become the fifty first state right and she's they're kind of in remembrance remembrance of her parents dying because that's also the anniversary of her parents dying right because the last time there was a celebration you i know that the that was there was a celebration going on when the car bomb or the backpack bomb went says suicides yeah and so she's just there in her thoughts drinking a little bit and he comes over and she he at first put off by them and then she starts enjoying the banter back and forth right in and i think regina king place that really well as in i don't buy this load of crap this guy is giving whatsoever but i'm gonna keep with it because he keeps he keeps news pre he's persistent yeah and also he keeps weaving the story in such a way that makes it not realistic but he doesn't lose in her mind he doesn't lose the narrative he just keeps he's coming up with it and and she's like well i will give you this right and i think she's entertained by him and she she thinks it's kind of funny and and what the hell it's just the night and this guy is it it appears like she enjoys talking to him what do you think charles charles yeah i think obviously she starts off initially resistant to the conversation she just kinda blows him off as this doctor manhattan you know 'cause player essent right and because there's a lot of people we see a lot of like like an overweight guy painted all blue yes during this whole celebration thing and it's almost like a mardi gras type events and so he's kinda she's just very dismissive and he sits down and he's you know he he starts dropping things here and there that kind of interests her and and and.
