"philadelphia" Discussed on The Bill Barnwell Show

"The season i don't know about the eagles organization you know bat organization much better than i do but even just based on how he played in two thousand eighteen i i think there was a pretty significant subset of people who thought carson wentz was one of those. You know tier one. Patrick mahomes level quarterbacks and just that he had to be the right situation and to get the right speed around him he had to get the the offensive line to be healthy and granted. He hasn't had the offensive line. Be healthy this year. So maybe that's a fair argument in carson wentz's favorite. But you know it. I i think there are teams. Where if i talked about that theory. They'll they'll they'll kind of go along with nci that make sense. But i think what happens is that you have so many of these organizations who spent years convincing themselves every single day. The their quarterback is actually one of those tier one guy and unfortunately typically. they're not. Yeah no i mean like you know. I look at those guys at the ones who basically you can drop onto any roster and make the playoffs every you know. They might not win the super bowl every year but they will make the playoffs and like there aren't a lot of those guys now. I do think in that sort of fear that we were just talking about that. There guys are probably going to be kind of consistently in that middle ear. And then there are guys who are going to be mostly in that middle tier but maybe they will have seasons. That are you know really Really impressive where you say. Wow look at these numbers. They are performing like a top level quarterback. So i think the thought viewed went that way. You know i. I didn't think going into this year that he belonged in sort of that Top category. But i certainly thought he was in the next group and i did think he had upside if in the right situation. I wasn't in love with their off season. I didn't think they did a great job with some of the decision that they made. I questioned the move. They made With the coaching staff. And i think some of those certainly contributed but at the same time you know. The guy is in his fifth year and he played really poorly. I mean he was You know i. It's kind of maneuvering the pocket with terrible. He was very jittery. Took a lot of a lot of sacks where he held onto the football. he didn't see the field well. He had accuracy issues. The yet fumbling issue so You know they're they're obviously are multiple sides of it and anytime you have a season where you win four games. There's gonna be plenty of blame to go around from front office to coaching to the actual players and I do think that was the case with the eagles this year. Yeah i mean i guess. That's the tough part right. There's sort of isolating how much blame should go to wins for this decline versus peterson versus the offensive line versus the receiving core. I mean in years past it. It seemed lake. When when's has struggled that blame has gone onto other parts of the team. It's been blaming you know how he for the lack of speed or blaming. Jj are thankful whiteside for existing and being an eagles player or you know the offensive line for having injuries like and those are all valid concerns. But it feels like this year whether it's been the timeframe whether it's been just how bad he's been. It feels like winstons getting much more of the brunt of that criticism. I think that's i think it's fair when you watch how he played you know not to say that they were doing a bunch of things to help him. But when there were placed if he made he didn't make them and he was producing so many negative plays. I mean i. I just feel like you turned over the turn the ball over early in the season. And then maybe they over coached him and said you know be cautious and then you could just see sort of. The wheels spinning his head. I mean i. It was like impossible to find a play in his last few games. Where he wasn't hitching in the pocket. I mean even touchdown he would hit like three times and then finally Find some guy so he was so unsure he was so conservative and i do think they over coast him and even with hurts you know. They small sample three and a half games there with her. But if you want to just look at it like you know expected points added per play or whatever you know with hurts. They were much more towards the middle of the pack. They were probably around like the nineteenth twentieth. Best offense again. It was a small sample. But you look at that with everything else. Being the same they were around the nineteenth and twentieth. Best offense compared to being like the thirty first or thirty second best offense and so you know. I think that is another reason. Why you look at it and say you know definitely chunk of the struggles certainly were attributed to win up fairly so now we have talked about what happens next and there are obviously no good options. I suppose on the table for the philadelphia eagles given carson wentz's contract situation. But i wanna talk about the possibility of trading carson wentz. I i've written about it. Sure you've discussed it as well. I mean the sort of difficulty in trading carson wentz financially but in terms of just how you think the organization views wentz and be likelihood of getting luckily of what the eagles would get back in return if they did trade carson.

"Philadelphia was like most places in the United States that when every neighborhood had jim there were certain times Dolphins in the twenties thirties and forties until the war started where you could see boxing almost every night yeah so now we have maybe two cards a month that sounds pretty good but not when you were having four or five six the even sometimes had cards on Christmas Day we usually ESPEC- daytime card on Christmas boxing was huge part of the city but now even though we have two guys at hold titles Tevin farmer and Julian willies right or good fighters we don't get any publicity from the mainstream media it's very very difficult to Eagles well here's how a guy described it the lions get the carcass I you know and then the the buzzards and then the hyenas and the boxing comes in right after the hyenas I guess it's just pure finances venues blue horizons place that we're going to make a trip to one of the most Kony venues in the city with history was nine around the nineteen sixties yeah it goes all the way back the buildings built like eighteen fifty five something like that it was residence for rich people for a while but then the loyal order the Moose which was sort of a club I guess they took it over and it maintained that name till the sixties where a gentleman who was a promoter Jimmy toppy senior bought it and named it after the moving beyond the blue horizon the blue horizon basically stayed active on and off until it closed down the women that owned it the I worry behind in the taxes there are a lot of structural problems with the costs a Lotta money to fix up and it's now just a derelict building but the real hater was when the USA network had the Tuesday night fights and once a month they were at the blue horizon and the fights were really good it's a very small venue from the Balkan you could literally jump in the ring if you wanted to so you're right on top of the fighters I think that's one of the reasons they fight so hard there it became a national thing people would actually take their vacation to come to the blue horizon and the promoter sometime I'm sold out before he announced it was fighting so that was that was the glory days of the Blue Horizon when everybody knew about it you know it was named number one venue for boxing ring magazine how much I told him to do but no it is because it's very intimate so everybody that's a boxing fan in Philadelphia mourns the loss of the blue her eyes because there's so many fabulous ah practically everybody fought there and it was like a colder in of noise yelling instructions cursing it was a lot of fun yeah well a lot of fun Web's the first Jack Dempsey gene tunney that was way down in South Philadelphia right where the Sports Complex this is our now there's an indoor venue there's the football stadium in the baseball stadium somewhere on that acreage was stadium that was built we're finished in one thousand nine hundred twenty six sake and tenuell stadium because there was a big fair here with that name but as soon as the fair was over they change it municipal stadium but Yeah Jack Dempsey fault they're against gene tunney and gene tunney won the title and there were one hundred twenty thousand people there there was a little bit radio in those days but there was no TV so most of the money came from you know selling seats but as time went on television because he's there was close circuit and others pay per view we didn't need a stadium that for boxing but the last big fight there was rocky Marciano winning the heavyweight from Jersey Joe Walcott in Nineteen fifty two with a thirteenth round knockout Marciano came off the floor for the nasty right hand and you know there is over forty thousand people there which is a good crowd but you're not one hundred twenty thousand but when the rolling stones played there and the sixties they had one hundred thousand the same and the Beatles played there as well so it wasn't just boxing wasn't just football we says multipurpose stadium it was just too old and uh-huh so this is the only place I know in the world we're allowed to park in the middle of the street it's illegal for this is South Philly and they let you do it in south Philly because they all posted it and nobody would get elected if they went against that I think I think posse and is very bad yet this is it hi Paseo that's it yes overhead gang right here well worse going away we wanna go tweets here we're we're going to the second one I think we're just put it out to the blue horizon now let's best jump on luxury all right here we are blue horizon right on cue and unbelievable Talk Mohammed Ali Frazier sought right canton the others are offended by it might be Larry Holmes I used to do is they had won twice for upstairs and downstairs just first-come-first-served and the fort rule the Balkanys the best seat in the house right so when they finally opened the door there was a stampede people would run up the stairs to get those prime seats it's it was unreal it was like a the Oklahoma Lean rushed to get a seat and then finally they decided to have actually nine seats and all that end decipher well no not as much fun so yeah this was it almost religious places the doors even be accidentally I think Oh wow okay yes kinda brought it up manning the barricades yeah yeah loads vote storage stuff stocks pianos bikes wardrobes Chad is a vending machines or guest this would have been on the perception the open yeah this is the lobbying offices over here go in and then the arena kind of how big is it well like I say it's supposed to seat about thirteen hundred and change so right okay well I can't tell you the Times I've come here yeah remember when you first came in we've

But she could make a difference in the lives of other women other children, she could help other people. She could save other lives, and that's what she would do. The real faces of aids. That's what Jonathan Demme was seeking. And he phoned many. Mark Sorenson was one. As a teenager. Sorenson was always obsessed with his complexion vein. Even now with aids Sorensen's face was covered with purple lesions. He refused makeup to hide the lesions. He wanted us all to see him for what he was. This is what aides looks like. As production and post production were on Sorenson was getting sicker. He would not live to see the finish film. Jennifer get this tape to Philadelphia. Word got back to Jonathan Demme. So he dispatched an assistant to handle liver. A rough unedited videotape of the movie to Sorensen's home. Mark Sorensen's mother opened that door on September sixteen nineteen Ninety-three the assistant handed her the film, take your time whenever you done with the film. Call me, and I'll come and pick it up. Sorenson was bedridden, but he didn't wanna watch the movie from bed. So the entire family lifted him up and carried him down the stairs to the living room. The movie was over. He wanted to win the tears. I love it. I love it so much. His family helped him back to bed and tuck him in. He died. The next day. All told nearly sixty persons living with aids were cast in Philadelphia. Within three years. Most of them were dead today. They're all gone, all but one. You meet her next time on the final chapter of people like us inside Philadelphia. There have been enormous gains in the fight against aids in the last decade, but also persistent challenges there are roughly thirty seven million people living with HIV globally, nearly twenty six million of whom are living in sub Saharan Africa women and girls account for eighteen point five million of the global HIV positive population more than the entire population of the Netherlands.

"It was a fine summer day. Ron nice water was alone at home in upstate New York. Writing the screenplay for Philadelphia. He often used music for inspiration. But on this particular day, he was moved to tears. No. It's Russell the lawnmower guy. Maybe look through the window. And so me crying. So this gay guy listening to opera in crying, what could be more stereotypical than that. How embarrassing how shameful and then realized that's just what this movie is about being who you are. No matter who's watching no matter what they think and bringing them close to you anyway. And so he wrote a scene where Tom Hanks character living with aids puts on opera music for Denzel character, and he gets emotional. What does that do to the straight guy? The guy who doesn't have the death sentence of aids. It's that moment in which the homophobic lawyer and the audience feel the kinship with and the humanity of a fellow being with. Jonathan you. Call from me run. I've got some bad news there in front of Jonathan Demme was a massive stack of faxes. Let me guess the studio doesn't like the opera scene. No, no, no, no. The studio hates the opera scene. Ron everybody. At the studio hates the opera scene. Listen to this. Instead of opera can't we get Madonna to do a cover of something. What if instead of the opera, they just talk about sports? I've dozens like that what if they just talk about sports, I have dozens like that run judge that we've got Tom Hanks walking into a gay porn theater and having anonymous sex, but an opera scene is what they're said about. Lemme ask you something. Do you like this scene Jonathan I love this scene? So do I fuck..

Again, she waited anxiously. Now, it would be a month every second of every day wondering if her baby was positive or negative for HIV and magic what that worry. Feels like it scared the hell out of her. After one month. She's back at the clinic gave me my daughter's test results. They're not ready yet. Let us tester again. No, not again, you're not going to prick her foot, again, give me the results. Now. They don't wanna tell me she thought they don't wanna give me the bad news.

No. Maybe what else? Well. What things do we associate with aids? What about hut cucumbers? What cucumbers it's an experimental treatment for aids. I know I know I know what it is. Jonathan I'm gay writer, and maybe I'm overly sensitive, but a a movie featuring homosexual men and called hot cucumbers, while I I I really think that might be misinterpreted. Maybe right.

Demi nice wonder we're sure even though it's still lacked a title that everybody agreed on the studio TriStar didn't expect a huge hit not from a movie about aids. In fact, the green light was conditional on a trim budget and big stars. And it didn't hurt the Demis latest film. The silence of the lambs was a massive popular and critical success. Silence. Was only the third film in history to pick up the top five Oscars, including best picture water. Thank you, Mr. Medavoy. We'll see you now. Great sorry, mR, dummy. He'd just wants to see mister. Nice wanna? Oh, okay. Good luck. Ron. Run. Nice Wanner could feel a lump move all the way down his throat. It was not common to get notes from the head of studio directly. And it was unheard of to get them without the director invited along. At the end of this long elevator ride to the heavens was the office of Mike Medavoy. He was the chairman of TriStar and a legendary figure in Hollywood over the years classics like Apocalypse Now rocky one flew over the coups nest and any hall were all produced under his leadership. And now he wanted to see the screenwriter of Philadelphia alone. Coming in Ron, Saddam.

"In the eighties and nineties has now people went to the movies for a good time. They wanted their favorite stars and familiar relatable stories. Nobody ever said let's go out to see a movie about a gay guy with aids. There were a few movies like this at that time, but they were small movies made for niche our house audiences. Jonathan Demme and Ron nice water. Meet at one of their first story conferences over roast beef and tuna salad sandwiches at the legendary Nate now's deli in Beverly Hills run this movie will only work if it speaks to the broadest possible audience, the ones who are not gay and don't know anyone suffering from aids. I agree. We need to have a conversation with people who don't already think the way we do what about a familiar John rely a courtroom drama. Maybe maybe maybe a civil rights case where a lawyer from a prestigious firm is gay and HIV positive in his showing the symptoms of aids and is fired because of it. So he sues the firm, and is defended by a scrappy to bit attorney who can speak for the audience someone they can relate to a regular guy, someone of freight of gays afraid of aids someone who someone who changes and grows into the friend the partner the Le. Over the men was the best version of us. But what happens at the end Jonathan? What do you mean? The lawyer with aids does he does he live or die? Jonathan and Ron stared at each other over that table for a long time. This was nineteen ninety. There was no cure for aids. No, drug cocktail treatment that was years away. Both men. New one tragic fact aids was largely a terminal diagnosis. They would work versions of the story where the man living with aids Andrew Beckett survived. But this wasn't true. It wasn't real. It was cowardly. They would have to have the courage to make an art what they knew what happened in life. Andrew Beckett would have to die and the people around him, his friends and family would have to respond to that death. Here. Art, wasn't imitating life art was life. Philadelphia would be a story of David versus Goliath. It would be the first mainstream movie about homophobia, the I put a face on the aids crisis. The movie would begin shooting in October of nineteen ninety two three months after Ron's nephew, Kevin in Jonathan's friend, Juan died of aids. Philadelphia would be dedicated to them both. Jonathan Demme wanted to make a movie about the aids crisis to do what he could to help in the face of inconceivable suffering and pain today, thanks to films, like Philadelphia spreading awareness, and fostering empathy along with impactful alliances like Coke's long standing partnership with red the fight against aids is going strong worldwide aids related deaths have declined by about half since their peak in two thousand four together we have made so much progress. But there's still so much work to be done. Aids. Is completely preventable and treatable yet every day over twenty five hundred people die because of it and aids is still the leading cause of death. Among women of reproductive age worldwide in two thousand eighteen this is unacceptable..

"For Jonathan Demme in his wife artist. One BOTAS was one of their best friends, and he was dying of aids. Jonathan Demme took a long walk. What was going on? People were getting sick, and sicker people were dying. Nobody was getting better friends of friends were sick and dying. And now someone so close to his own family. What could he do he had to do something? How could he keep wanna live? What could he do to make a difference in this this this awful rolling tragedy? Jonathan Demme sat on that bench in central park and watch the birds fly in the trees sway in the sunshine was as if it was as if nature in its fullness was showing him the light. I'm a filmmaker. I make films. Sometimes films can change the way people think the way they feel maybe maybe we can create an antidote to the terrible indifference in stilleto facing people with aids. What's even worse than aids is being shunned because of it being made to feel less than human. Maybe a movie can be the mirror to show us that people with aids deserve our sympathy our support and our love maybe a movie can illustrate the great courage. These victims display in the face of this horrendous Sepah Temic. Temic maybe a movie can lend this tragedy a human face one that we can all relate to gay and straight men and women sick and healthy. And maybe in some small way, we can help this country wake up to help these.

They could hear they could hear something. We were always told that Christmas miracles were things in storybooks and fairytales. We were always worn to be wary of strangers to look away when someone you don't know look she win the I how to explain it. Then. In they came and they kept coming strangers pans plates of food.
