The Incomparable

159: Full Shatner

 

  the incomparable number 159 September [TS]

  everybody welcome back to be [TS]

  uncomfortable i'm your host Jason Snell [TS]

  and when we last left the uncomfortable [TS]

  we had done the first two rounds of our [TS]

  second movie draft where we pick a bunch [TS]

  of movies that we think that you should [TS]

  see and a sort of virtual film festival [TS]

  so we have the first two rounds last [TS]

  week seven people seven movies each that [TS]

  was fourteen we're going to do three [TS]

  more rounds a little bit faster pace [TS]

  than last week it couldn't really be [TS]

  much slower my participants are in the [TS]

  order in which they pick any odd co [TS]

  David lower Steve let's Monty Ashley [TS]

  John siracusa dan morgan and then i will [TS]

  pick last as the host anyway let's pick [TS]

  it up in round three [TS]

  we're back up to the third pic so Andy [TS]

  it's your turn [TS]

  linking back to pelham 123 which one of [TS]

  the reasons i like was because it's like [TS]

  all these character actors this is a [TS]

  more recent movie that the big year from [TS]

  2011 which one of the reasons why i have [TS]

  cable is that it's there's a great it's [TS]

  great when they just simply program [TS]

  these movies that maybe you saw the [TS]

  trailer when was released but there was [TS]

  just nothing to motivate you to see it [TS]

  and then by the time I hit video you've [TS]

  totally forgotten all about it [TS]

  this really is a terrific little movie [TS]

  the basic premise is that if you're [TS]

  serious birdwatcher maybe one of the [TS]

  things on your bucket list is to do this [TS]

  thing called a big year which means you [TS]

  spend entire calendar year from January [TS]

  first December 31st trying to spot as [TS]

  many species of bird in North America as [TS]

  possible and there are records for this [TS]

  and it's it's really intense thing so [TS]

  it's about Jack Black and steve martin [TS]

  and owen wilson as three different [TS]

  burgers are all having a big year at the [TS]

  same time Owen Wilson holds like this [TS]

  what was often thought of as this [TS]

  unbreakable record of some 130 birds in [TS]

  one year but this is this is the year [TS]

  that El Nino has changes like really [TS]

  change where birds are going to be [TS]

  landing and so now both steve martin [TS]

  jack black think that I've always wanted [TS]

  to do this and I love burning and maybe [TS]

  this is a good year for reverse to do [TS]

  this and as I'm explaining this you're [TS]

  probably imagining that at one point [TS]

  Steve Martin will walk the club [TS]

  hanging onto the hood of a runaway RV [TS]

  that will then throw him into a latrine [TS]

  or something like that and it's nothing [TS]

  like that because it's like when I look [TS]

  for saying about selling it's like every [TS]

  obvious joke that's right there ready to [TS]

  be reached and picked up they leave it [TS]

  there and they really go into even [TS]

  though they maintain that as a comedy [TS]

  about three people who love this sport [TS]

  one of whom is super good and three [TS]

  people who are into this big year for [TS]

  very different reasons and they go [TS]

  through all these little adventures and [TS]

  they become different the they sort of [TS]

  learned something about their own lives [TS]

  by the end of the year even though it is [TS]

  funny [TS]

  now the reason why connects back to [TS]

  pelham 123 is that one of the things I [TS]

  love about it is that it's just [TS]

  chock-full of character actors and [TS]

  character roles and owen wilson was in [TS]

  tenenbaums also but also also anjelica [TS]

  huston Anjelica Huston is in this movie [TS]

  as the owner of a boat who does that [TS]

  does birding tours call Danny aquat Jim [TS]

  Parsons from from big bang theory is the [TS]

  the operator of a burning blog Brian [TS]

  Dennehy on the kings of character actors [TS]

  jack black's dad and one of my favorite [TS]

  character character athletic directors [TS]

  kevin Pollak does legs does the sort of [TS]

  performance as the steve martin plays [TS]

  CEO of a huge chemical corporation that [TS]

  has been he's been trying to recover for [TS]

  years but he keeps like not wanting to [TS]

  retire so this is his way to say look [TS]

  I'm definitely retiring kevin Pollak [TS]

  plays like the one of his underlings who [TS]

  you know that is now steering his [TS]

  company and he has so few scenes but in [TS]

  every single scene he delivers the goods [TS]

  with just not even just with a couple [TS]

  lines with one gesture with one thing [TS]

  like that so I like i said i didn't [TS]

  really I didn't see it until it came on [TS]

  HBO and then the first time I saw like [TS]

  the last 45 minutes of it i was so [TS]

  charmed by how well drawn these [TS]

  characters are how there really are no [TS]

  enemies and there are no bad guys in [TS]

  this movie it really is about these [TS]

  people individually they interact with [TS]

  each other but it really is how they [TS]

  individually approach this and what this [TS]

  big year represents to them and that [TS]

  particular point in their lives [TS]

  you will also let finally the the you [TS]

  also noticed that the how carefully [TS]

  every movies art-directed because of [TS]

  course everyone has each of these [TS]

  characters has a cell phone jack black [TS]

  is like a working sort of working-class [TS]

  guy he has like a contract flip phone [TS]

  Steve Martin is the corporate exec and [TS]

  he has a blackberry owen wilson is kind [TS]

  of a jerk [TS]

  jackass so he has an iphone yeah I can't [TS]

  even see the movie so i can't i can't [TS]

  speak to that but I I actually read the [TS]

  book by Mark obama obama sick i think [TS]

  his name is who's up to Sports [TS]

  Illustrated writer great book i can say [TS]

  that i could say that the book as the [TS]

  book is a really enjoyable read and I [TS]

  love books and movies about people who [TS]

  are obsessed with things that most [TS]

  people are not obsessed with its [TS]

  fascinating i got i got the book [TS]

  inaudible like after this to see like [TS]

  what the real story was like and yet [TS]

  it's like it you really do enjoy seeing [TS]

  people who have a certain passion that [TS]

  you do not share yet but who have an [TS]

  ability to articulate that passion that [TS]

  make you understand why they love this [TS]

  thing since Ashley David your turn [TS]

  well I wanted to pick a film that had [TS]

  been adapted from a play cuz you know i [TS]

  do theater so it's like malaria which [TS]

  one to pick [TS]

  and I mean there are a lot of really [TS]

  good adaptations of plays but i decided [TS]

  to go with night of the iguana which is [TS]

  maybe not a great adaptation of a play [TS]

  but it's kind of an interesting group of [TS]

  people shove together in a hotel in [TS]

  mexico during a tropical storm tropical [TS]

  depression or something and an iguana [TS]

  there is actually an iguana but the [TS]

  reason it's interesting to me is partly [TS]

  because you have Richard Burton in full [TS]

  william shatner mode and I swear william [TS]

  shatner got all his his stick from Bert [TS]

  except Burton knew how to do it well and [TS]

  I'd like I say that with love I love [TS]

  with a panic but but the other thing [TS]

  that's great about it is you have ava [TS]

  gardner is the woman who owns the hotel [TS]

  that all these people are at [TS]

  you've got Richard Burton and it was [TS]

  just after he had married elizabeth [TS]

  taylor who is ragingly jealous that he [TS]

  was going off to Mexico within the [TS]

  gardener and you know John Huston [TS]

  directing it and I forget who else there [TS]

  was no sue lyon who was lolita in [TS]

  Stanley Kubrick's film and apparently [TS]

  the mood on the set was so happy and so [TS]

  wonderful that John Huston bought a [TS]

  pistol and specially engraved bullets [TS]

  for each of the fat for burton and [TS]

  taylor immigrant with all of their all [TS]

  of the other people's names engraved on [TS]

  the bullets and said here's your set [TS]

  here you go and so it's kind of fun to [TS]

  watch them all getting progressively [TS]

  more manic as the film goes on because [TS]

  you kind of wonder how much of it is [TS]

  acting and how much of it is it they're [TS]

  driving one another crazy but I mean it [TS]

  you know it's it's a fun pressure cooker [TS]

  everything watching characters go nuts [TS]

  and you get to see Britain have a [TS]

  breakdown like two-thirds of the way [TS]

  through the film spits you know but yeah [TS]

  I just it's it's fun thinking about the [TS]

  poisonous atmosphere behind it and yet [TS]

  it turned out and that bad film [TS]

  alright night of the iguana great a not [TS]

  bad film I'm not bad not bad film with [TS]

  with full Shatner Shatner it's good [TS]

  seeing your turn [TS]

  alright having just talked about [TS]

  poltergeists going to take a slight [TS]

  departure with my next film which is [TS]

  nineteen seventy sevens the many [TS]

  adventures of winnie the pooh [TS]

  no solid choice iced I totally support [TS]

  and its choice i didn't find that scary [TS]

  that scared me more than poltergeist I'm [TS]

  not picking this just as an excuse to [TS]

  work the word poo into my festival title [TS]

  not just now I i love it because it's so [TS]

  utterly gentle and totally removed from [TS]

  worldly concerns it is the [TS]

  quintessential childhood movie it does a [TS]

  surprisingly faithful job I think of of [TS]

  recreating the wonderful million books [TS]

  the the art of course differ [TS]

  substantially from the e/m Shepherd [TS]

  style in the books but it has to because [TS]

  those drawings are basically kind of [TS]

  scribbly and I don't think they would [TS]

  translate terribly well to the animation [TS]

  so I think the character designs they [TS]

  came up with were pretty darn good [TS]

  considering but mostly I love this movie [TS]

  because sterling Holloway voice is so [TS]

  freaking perfect [TS]

  oh yeah for winning the moon said this [TS]

  movie came out when I was five and some [TS]

  of the featurettes that were stitched [TS]

  together to make it actually predate [TS]

  that by several years so when I was very [TS]

  small I had had a few disney records [TS]

  that told the stories but the original [TS]

  voice actors and i would put them on [TS]

  when I went to bed so sterling Holloway [TS]

  to me is the sound of being lulled to [TS]

  sleep pike [TS]

  yeah by that wonderful wonderful voice [TS]

  and so really love the movie the [TS]

  animation could be better i mean it's [TS]

  it's from that weird period when it [TS]

  looked like Disney animators warranty [TS]

  racing their pencil lines for some [TS]

  reason you know what happened kinda [TS]

  throughout the mid-seventies and but if [TS]

  you can ignore that it's it's a terrific [TS]

  little movie that still works for me to [TS]

  this day and it also contains that great [TS]

  final line that never fails to make me [TS]

  weep uncontrollably which is Christopher [TS]

  Robin is leaving the Hundred Acre Wood [TS]

  to go to school and he's trying to [TS]

  explain that to poo butt pou of course [TS]

  being a bear of very little brain [TS]

  doesn't really understand and then the [TS]

  the last scene kinda has been walking [TS]

  off together into the evening and [TS]

  sebastian cabot the narrator announces [TS]

  wherever they go and whatever happens to [TS]

  them on the way in there enchanted place [TS]

  on top of the forest a little bear will [TS]

  always be waiting [TS]

  and I just remember seeing that part [TS]

  when I was about 10 years old and [TS]

  suddenly realizing oh everything I love [TS]

  I will someday outgrow it works very [TS]

  very well good strong always fantastic [TS]

  you're absolutely right [TS]

  he's great i wish i wish you'd done more [TS]

  voiceover work yeah he's good in this [TS]

  and he's good in the jungle book is [TS]

  called the Python right i think he [TS]

  actually shows up in Robin Hood as well [TS]

  bit of an odd duck [TS]

  yes little bit okay the many adventures [TS]

  of winnie the pooh it's on the board on [TS]

  the board [TS]

  Monty what do you got third man no no [TS]

  I'm getting about the fourth man but i [TS]

  will briefly say that if you like the [TS]

  third man i highly recommend you find [TS]

  the radio drama the many lives of [TS]

  harrier line now because it's a prequel [TS]

  so he can be as evil as he wants and [TS]

  there's an assumption that he'll [TS]

  eventually get his comeuppance later in [TS]

  the movie right and well and I love love [TS]

  the every episode for the first couple [TS]

  of episodes starts with you may remember [TS]

  i was shot to death in a suit you do get [TS]

  pretty sick of this is either [TS]

  yes I'm gonna set his half-brother yeah [TS]

  sick is it already what do you have for [TS]

  us body [TS]

  well my theme is clearly martial arts [TS]

  movies that have miraculously gotten DVD [TS]

  releases in the face of public scorn yes [TS]

  I'm gonna get me one that just got a DVD [TS]

  release a couple weeks ago [TS]

  ninja three the domination you show up a [TS]

  lot of gas stations don't you [TS]

  now I go to scarecrow video the finest [TS]

  video store in the world why do you ask [TS]

  there you go it's inside a gas station [TS]

  it i missed the first two ninjas [TS]

  so you're gonna have to get me up to [TS]

  speed well like all of the ninja movies [TS]

  this has nothing to do with any of the [TS]

  other ninja locate that it's accepted [TS]

  star sho kosugi who was the only ninja [TS]

  actor through the entire nineteen [TS]

  eighties you might remember him from the [TS]

  master [TS]

  oh yes the master I didn't enjoy with [TS]

  Lee Van Cleef is about the master you're [TS]

  thinking over is a different yeah shoka [TS]

  Sookie was the bad ninjas and also any [TS]

  timely van cleef space wasn't visible [TS]

  he would you know Sookie yeah i'm a [TS]

  theory that one of the reasons ninja [TS]

  movies are so popular is that you can [TS]

  completely cover your actor bringing any [TS]

  stuff man you want now that what made [TS]

  into three the domination a change of [TS]

  pace was it had a female as the [TS]

  protagonist and she's played by Lucinda [TS]

  Dickey who you probably don't remember [TS]

  shooting that's the i'll break in and [TS]

  break into electric boogaloo which were [TS]

  both also this year [TS]

  think bigger first a busy year that was [TS]

  her only here a year the Dickey so I'm [TS]

  going to be animals were only in 1984 [TS]

  and then i'm done yes come out and not [TS]

  very good now in this movie ninjas have [TS]

  the power to possess people [TS]

  supernaturally and on the DVD commentary [TS]

  the doctor explains that the reason they [TS]

  did that is because they figured people [TS]

  wouldn't find a plausible that a woman [TS]

  could do martial arts [TS]

  wow so they went to the perfectly [TS]

  natural alternate answer of supernatural [TS]

  affects the actual plot is pretty boring [TS]

  but there is a seduction scene where [TS]

  she's giving a guy a lapdance opens a [TS]

  can of v8 and seductively pours it down [TS]

  her clear that probably so this is well [TS]

  the ninjas possessing her [TS]

  however I not seen this movie I could've [TS]

  had a v-8 shadow wants to do you with my [TS]

  ninja pole twirling while she's doing [TS]

  this her face says I am certain this is [TS]

  the sexiest thing anyone has ever seen [TS]

  and it isn't and she lives in the most [TS]

  1980 specific apartment ever it's just a [TS]

  great big room with a stand-up arcade [TS]

  machine and nagle prints every way oh [TS]

  yeah it is a very odd movie and somehow [TS]

  it not only got a DVD release couple [TS]

  weeks ago it has directors commentary [TS]

  and everything [TS]

  oh wow thats all set director does the [TS]

  one movie made right so he's really on [TS]

  tickets he wasn't too busy [TS]

  I don't know some of these movies were [TS]

  accidentally directed by people who went [TS]

  on to do things well X this guy directed [TS]

  break into electric boogaloo I'll get it [TS]

  open for him [TS]

  yeah that that movies awful by the way [TS]

  if you're curious [TS]

  I love the breakdancers are just mines [TS]

  they found in the park caii had heard [TS]

  that break into was the better of the [TS]

  break-in movies but i guess not [TS]

  listen the problem with break into and I [TS]

  can go on about the other as long as you [TS]

  like [TS]

  maybe I maybe could be is there any [TS]

  country in that because then you can [TS]

  just pick up next time and there's no [TS]

  come who in that there's some dance [TS]

  fighting and breaking where people you [TS]

  know kind of lock at each other all [TS]

  right and we run lock at each other [TS]

  that's great that's not everything [TS]

  reading my denomination bring domination [TS]

  from 1984 you cannot look at a frame of [TS]

  this movie and not know it's from 1984 [TS]

  excellent that's great I i think people [TS]

  are gonna really like the the kungfu [TS]

  come food at the at the film festival i [TS]

  think this would be a fun night if you [TS]

  come on down a minute drive in at the [TS]

  outskirts of tactile have the driving [TS]

  right that's right all right John [TS]

  syracuse oh you're up [TS]

  sorry you can't pick min 23 the [TS]

  domination i'm pretty sure I've seen [TS]

  that 120 seats for being truthful there [TS]

  any of the other ninja of the movies our [TS]

  syllabus and I've also seen Breaking and [TS]

  break into wow yeah USA Network's what I [TS]

  blame for Allah so up all night with [TS]

  rhonda shear and Gilbert Gottfried plays [TS]

  it its up all night [TS]

  yes alright so to understand why I [TS]

  picked this movie thing you have to know [TS]

  about me is that I like the good Jason [TS]

  Bourne movies better than like most [TS]

  James Bond movies I like my spine movies [TS]

  realistic in scare quotes but still so [TS]

  this is emily is very realistic [TS]

  yeah that fits in scare quotes it is the [TS]

  2006 movie called The Good Shepherd and [TS]

  I didn't notice until i went to the IMDb [TS]

  page but it was directed by robert de [TS]

  niro I had no idea i don't think that [TS]

  factors into it all here but it's got a [TS]

  hell of a cast it's matt damon and the [TS]

  the lead that angelina jolie Alec [TS]

  Baldwin fully crewed up robert de niro [TS]

  with the guy from 2001 his name I can't [TS]

  pronounce michael gambon William part [TS]

  timothy hutton like [TS]

  you know the big stars in sort of an [TS]

  ensemble connections i think yeah I I [TS]

  stopped I stop copying pasting from my [TS]

  duties for important huge cat seemingly [TS]

  live look at the actual running time it [TS]

  seems like a long movie that's what I [TS]

  like I like to be long and drawn out and [TS]

  it's kind of the sprawling history of [TS]

  the CIA and one family's involvement in [TS]

  it and I don't want to spoil too much of [TS]

  the plot and that's all you really need [TS]

  to know do you like your movies your spy [TS]

  movies kind of like slow and sinister do [TS]

  you like sprawling multi-character [TS]

  movies that have said that spanned two [TS]

  generations of a family [TS]

  do you like movies without a lot of [TS]

  comedy and very dark and kind of serious [TS]

  music the whole time then this is the [TS]

  movie for you [TS]

  it also has one of the most tragic death [TS]

  scenes in any movie I've ever seen and [TS]

  my favorite thing about the tragic [TS]

  testing which I will not spoil is that [TS]

  it may not actually be all that tragic [TS]

  ah which i think is a great twist or is [TS]

  it or isn't it it is anyway if you have [TS]

  never heard of the good shepherd because [TS]

  I hadn't heard of until I caught on like [TS]

  Netflix or something a couple years ago [TS]

  I I don't know if it did very well in [TS]

  theater or whatever but if you like that [TS]

  type of movie Go Netflix it now you will [TS]

  not be disappointed [TS]

  it seemed to earn back its budget which [TS]

  means of you know it probably ended up [TS]

  over many many years breaking even but [TS]

  you know it's not a success in the box [TS]

  office [TS]

  yeah i had to pay all those actors yeah [TS]

  well and some actual real-life you know [TS]

  basis I was just remembering that the [TS]

  yeah the the character on who matt damon [TS]

  is or the person who matters character [TS]

  is based is a rather notorious but like [TS]

  very very famous CIA agent as far as [TS]

  those things go in there is sort of a [TS]

  little bit of a true story behind some [TS]

  of it are inspired by an interesting is [TS]

  matt damon doesn't play like the [TS]

  fresh-faced kid in this movie like [TS]

  further the latter part of the movie is [TS]

  it there is a fresh-faced kid in the [TS]

  movie and it's his son after which actor [TS]

  that is but that many ways it especially [TS]

  change of pace because like Oh Matt [TS]

  Damon that's like the Good Will Hunting [TS]

  guy right now not in this movie [TS]

  alright I want to talk to you about our [TS]

  first sponsor its warby parker these are [TS]

  the rebels of I where they're dedicated [TS]

  to the belief that really nice [TS]

  I we're really nice glasses and [TS]

  sunglasses [TS]

  cost a fortune they shouldn't cost as [TS]

  much as a high-end iPhone their [TS]

  prescription glasses start at $95 [TS]

  including the prescription lenses and [TS]

  their titanium frames collection [TS]

  including lenses starts at 145 all their [TS]

  glasses already having anti-reflective [TS]

  anti-glare coating there's no markup to [TS]

  come with a case they come with cleaning [TS]

  cloth and here's the best part this is [TS]

  an online store for glasses they do have [TS]

  some showrooms in some places including [TS]

  San Francisco where I live but you can [TS]

  order them online and you can do it [TS]

  without fear that you're gonna get [TS]

  something that wasn't at all what you [TS]

  thought it was when you saw it on the [TS]

  web they'll send you up to five pairs of [TS]

  glasses in their home try-on program [TS]

  they ship them directly to you you keep [TS]

  them for up to five days you try them on [TS]

  in the comfort of your own home and then [TS]

  you send them back with a prepaid label [TS]

  after you've made your decision and if [TS]

  you don't like any of them there's no [TS]

  obligation to purchase but you can get [TS]

  that assurance that this is actually [TS]

  what you're going to get and then you [TS]

  place the order to have him in your [TS]

  hands within 10 business days and it's [TS]

  usually even faster than that they also [TS]

  have their heart in the right place for [TS]

  every pair of glasses warby parker cells [TS]

  they distribute a pair of glasses to [TS]

  somebody in need because Warby Parker [TS]

  doesn't just believe that glasses should [TS]

  be affordable for everybody [TS]

  they also believe that people in need [TS]

  should be able to see and so they give [TS]

  them glasses as well and they've got [TS]

  this donation program now there are also [TS]

  sunglasses they have non prescription [TS]

  polarized sunglasses those started 95 or [TS]

  145 with titanium frames and the [TS]

  prescription polarized glasses start at [TS]

  one fifty-one 95 for titanium so warby [TS]

  parker they believe glasses should be a [TS]

  fashion accessory should be fashionable [TS]

  these are vintage inspired designs they [TS]

  believe that they should be reasonably [TS]

  priced they believe that all sorts of [TS]

  people should have access to quality [TS]

  eyeglasses and they believe that online [TS]

  shoppers shouldn't have to freak out [TS]

  because they're worried that what they [TS]

  just bought isn't going to be good when [TS]

  they get it you get to try it on so a [TS]

  very cool idea [TS]

  warby parker is the name you go to warby [TS]

  parker dot-com and its w/ei rby parrkerr [TS]

  check it out [TS]

  get some glasses in see if your next new [TS]

  pair of glasses fit you in the comfort [TS]

  of your own home use the code smell [TS]

  a little better entered for someone like [TS]

  me who doesn't like horror movies that [TS]

  much though I have seen and enjoyed Evil [TS]

  Dead 2 which is only kind of partially [TS]

  horror movie it's a calm [TS]

  yeah it's really a comedy is why i like [TS]

  it but army of darkness which is the the [TS]

  story of ash from the first two evil [TS]

  movies he was transported back in time [TS]

  at the events at the end of people there [TS]

  too and ends up in the dark ages [TS]

  basically where he is a sleep and then [TS]

  when the castle he is in a has been [TS]

  insulated into is under attack by evil [TS]

  minions e is forced to come to their [TS]

  their rescue but of course he does the [TS]

  sinners own particular way and this you [TS]

  know movie contains many many great [TS]

  things including limoges to classic [TS]

  Harryhausen stop-motion battles with [TS]

  skeletons the Three Stooges are also [TS]

  referenced in here [TS]

  The Day the Earth Stood Still i believe [TS]

  is also a reference with the the three [TS]

  pet words of flowers Virata Klaatu [TS]

  Barada don't know but Bruce Campbell who [TS]

  is you know rightfully a a movie icon if [TS]

  a B movie icon is is fantastic here this [TS]

  is into my mind probably his best work [TS]

  and it's just it's you know Sam Raimi [TS]

  before Sam Raimi sort of got into [TS]

  mainstream Hollywood movies you but you [TS]

  can see all the things in here [TS]

  that show up in his later movies I mean [TS]

  if you watch the the doctor octopus seen [TS]

  spider-man 2 you know there's like [TS]

  direct references back to his work and [TS]

  evil dead [TS]

  it's just the way he shoots it he's got [TS]

  a very distinctive methodology and [TS]

  there's certain shots you really loves [TS]

  to reuse and it's it's terribly cheesy [TS]

  at points but kind of in a delightful [TS]

  hilarious way lots of little players who [TS]

  show up in another universe bizarre [TS]

  little rolls for bridget fonda appears [TS]

  very briefly and Beth Davis who plays [TS]

  the the love interest who some might [TS]

  know in more recent years as Jared [TS]

  Harris's wife on mad men and of course [TS]

  ted raimi Sam Raimi's brother who [TS]

  appears as a three different characters [TS]

  but it's also one another one of those [TS]

  movies that is that is eminently [TS]

  quotable gimme some sugar baby [TS]

  he pretty much anything Bruce Campbell [TS]

  says in this movie is it's just instant [TS]

  instant classic so if you ever play duke [TS]

  nukem virtually every single line from [TS]

  that is crib from this will be out this [TS]

  it's just it's just a great movie this [TS]

  the skeleton fight at the end if nothing [TS]

  else is just totally worth it [TS]

  although don't make the mistake I did [TS]

  originally when I bought this on DVD i [TS]

  bought like what was supposedly i think [TS]

  the director's cut and it has a [TS]

  different the Virgin i had only had an [TS]

  in an ending that was different from the [TS]

  theatrical release in the movie [TS]

  yeah they're at least three separate [TS]

  releases of army of darkness the the [TS]

  quote-unquote directors cut ending which [TS]

  is not the theatrical cut ending is [TS]

  actually worse i would argue so I later [TS]

  acquired a separate version that has [TS]

  both endings but the original ending is [TS]

  seen in the theaters i think is a is a [TS]

  much more satisfying says I ending and [TS]

  if you haven't seen this movie I don't I [TS]

  I don't even have nothing for you [TS]

  why what's wrong with you alright I just [TS]

  haven't seen it yet you haven't seen our [TS]

  radar [TS]

  have you seen people that you haven't [TS]

  seen evil good to yet i have a single [TS]

  gave you that the pollution of Evil Dead [TS]

  is is very interesting because people [TS]

  get the original Evil Dead is is [TS]

  straight-up horror and its really good [TS]

  as a horror film it's it's genuinely [TS]

  scary and its international pretty [TS]

  twisted it's in there and then evil that [TS]

  to suddenly becomes like the Benny Hill [TS]

  horror movie [TS]

  yeah it's a comedy and it aside from it [TS]

  being a comedy it's almost exactly the [TS]

  same movie as evil dead right although [TS]

  it has the single best visual pun play [TS]

  on words ever made in the movie i will [TS]

  say that all right I'll I'm going to see [TS]

  my calcium eventual and then army of [TS]

  darkness is basically like more like a [TS]

  fantasy epic you know Jason and the [TS]

  Argonauts style jerk than anything else [TS]

  they were going to call it many evil [TS]

  dead and then they remanded they remade [TS]

  Evil Dead yeah some so I it's my turn to [TS]

  go to wrap the third round and i am [TS]

  going to i'm going to pick this is gonna [TS]

  be a little complicated i am going to [TS]

  pick another James Cameron movie to go [TS]

  with Steve's choice of the Terminator [TS]

  i'm going to pick the abyss but it's the [TS]

  special edition where they added back [TS]

  all the things that make that movie good [TS]

  because the original release is crappy [TS]

  but the special edition which I saw in [TS]

  70 millimeter I believe or it was on a [TS]

  giant screen i think it was 70 [TS]

  millimeter it is spectacular spectacular [TS]

  so I thought when they when they did the [TS]

  home video special edition release they [TS]

  did a limited film release and I saw in [TS]

  san francisco and it's a really good [TS]

  movie and the ending of the original was [TS]

  really bad and the special edition it [TS]

  actually fixes huge amounts of problems [TS]

  with the movie it's long but there's a [TS]

  lot of great stuff in it at the core [TS]

  it's the story of the relationship [TS]

  between harris and Mary Elizabeth [TS]

  mastrantonio a yes Michael Biehn is in [TS]

  this too and and is is threatening there [TS]

  is an amazing scene where [TS]

  we're at harris has to allow Mary [TS]

  Elizabeth mastrantonio to drown and hope [TS]

  that maybe he could he can pump the [TS]

  water out of her body later and bring [TS]

  her back to life but he has to let her [TS]

  drown first [TS]

  that is an incredible just incredible [TS]

  seen the special effects are good [TS]

  this is one of the first major cgi usage [TS]

  and in a movie with a little alien [TS]

  pseudopod water water thingy that comes [TS]

  out of the moonpool there's aliens yeah [TS]

  there's lots of undersea action there's [TS]

  crazy like submarine gadgety things in [TS]

  this in this sea bass at the bottom of [TS]

  the ocean sitting on the ocean floor [TS]

  chris elliott is a guy on a ship at one [TS]

  point it's like why is he and his movie [TS]

  but he's there Michael beans mustaches [TS]

  like an actor in itself it is it is [TS]

  indeed good character moments a good [TS]

  story arc and interesting message and a [TS]

  much better in the special edition like [TS]

  I can't even imagine so i i'm i i'm [TS]

  gonna pick the best because i wanna i [TS]

  wanna a big big sci-fi movie and I like [TS]

  the best special edition a lot sadly not [TS]

  on blu-ray [TS]

  but it's on DVD and i do recommend it's [TS]

  really good i love love love that movie [TS]

  that I hold up that movie as one of I [TS]

  can't imagine a script by screenplay [TS]

  being more perfectly executed than that [TS]

  beat for beat for beat every element is [TS]

  exactly where it has to be and even [TS]

  though this is a really intense action [TS]

  action movie at no point do you ask [TS]

  yourself the question why is this [TS]

  character doing this or why is this [TS]

  happening [TS]

  and the answer is because it's a movie [TS]

  and that one has to happen that the [TS]

  scene the you refer to specifically i [TS]

  think that Hitchcock would have been [TS]

  absolutely thrilled to have come up with [TS]

  this concept that there you have two [TS]

  characters that are in a mini-sub that [TS]

  is taking on water [TS]

  and now they have to figure out how they [TS]

  not die [TS]

  yeah and rounded up and the the I don't [TS]

  really want to I really would rather [TS]

  people see this movie and see it unfold [TS]

  yeah spoil it but what I love is that [TS]

  again a lesser movie would have left you [TS]

  thinking yeah but why didn't they try [TS]

  this oh come on thats no James Cameron [TS]

  put so much work in this to make sure [TS]

  that the solution they come up with as [TS]

  horrible as it is is the only solution [TS]

  available to them and then it's not as [TS]

  though like after the scenes but that [TS]

  part of the movies over with let's [TS]

  forget about the fact we went through [TS]

  this know that has an impact on how the [TS]

  movie has to play out after that it's [TS]

  like everything because i'll stop [TS]

  ranting about this but just to give just [TS]

  to give you like a concrete example and [TS]

  Harris is the star the movement [TS]

  he's the same he's the star ok he's the [TS]

  big name he's the hero [TS]

  so you know that if there's something [TS]

  big that has to be done to save the day [TS]

  the hero has to do it nonetheless at the [TS]

  start of the movie he is simply like the [TS]

  the head mechanic that he's like the [TS]

  head of the screw on this oil derrick he [TS]

  does not have the technical expertise to [TS]

  do the thing that he has to do there are [TS]

  other people who have come down onto the [TS]

  book onto this undersea platform who do [TS]

  have the expertise [TS]

  Cameron figure has to have to figure out [TS]

  we have to have a reason why he and only [TS]

  he is available to do it as and they do [TS]

  yeah I like i said but front for all my [TS]

  appreciation for that technical stuff [TS]

  it's just a rollicking great adventure [TS]

  movie I really think it's the best movie [TS]

  James Cameron has everything [TS]

  do you like the original cut and II know [TS]

  because I'm sure I'm on the same page is [TS]

  jason i remember seeing the first cut [TS]

  and not understanding why do you go you [TS]

  literally have no I mean I think they [TS]

  were like we're coming out and will be a [TS]

  little more like 2001 ich werde plate [TS]

  what is happening nobody no it's not [TS]

  it's not it's not it's not only that but [TS]

  the cut version it's only it's only [TS]

  about 22 minutes shorter but the reason [TS]

  if he if you got to get the movie down [TS]

  to two hours and 20 minutes you are you [TS]

  going to take out the stuff that's [TS]

  really expensive expression [TS]

  effects shots know you're going to take [TS]

  out dialogue scenes that don't [TS]

  necessarily contribute to the plot but [TS]

  what they do is they give you the [TS]

  context here is the relationship between [TS]

  each of one HR each and every one of the [TS]

  workers on this oil platform and this is [TS]

  why this person is important to that [TS]

  person this is why this other person [TS]

  here can't just jump in here again it's [TS]

  it today they wouldn't cut this movie by [TS]

  the way because it's not even three [TS]

  hours long and an action sci-fi action [TS]

  movie at a hundred and seventy minutes [TS]

  now people wouldn't even blink at it [TS]

  right the main change they make is that [TS]

  the pseudopod would be pointed straight [TS]

  at the camera a lot more for the greedy [TS]

  three purposes yes [TS]

  that explains what went wrong because I [TS]

  tried to watch this movie a couple of [TS]

  months ago and I must have gotten a [TS]

  special edition one because my only note [TS]

  on our super boring haha which seemed [TS]

  odd because of the mountain specialist [TS]

  everybody loves it [TS]

  yea though i don't think the special [TS]

  edition i don't think the special [TS]

  edition is super boring i think maybe it [TS]

  is a long movie [TS]

  I mean there's no doubt about it but [TS]

  it's long movies builds I what I love it [TS]

  well you you also need to read also need [TS]

  to get the documentary about the making [TS]

  of the story because that's another [TS]

  thing that we could talk for half are [TS]

  about world showing to but if it's [TS]

  really is like only james cameron could [TS]

  will this movie into existence the way [TS]

  that he did that's like I think this is [TS]

  a submarine fetish [TS]

  yeah he does he's always been into this [TS]

  movie and Titanic yes and the fact that [TS]

  he descended to the deepest part of the [TS]

  ocean in a submarine like last year he [TS]

  says always a world record for lowest [TS]

  submarined I've kind of obsessed the the [TS]

  man now has Titanic money if he wants to [TS]

  go to the case of our targeting all by [TS]

  himself just because he can do that [TS]

  expert who is sent to Brazil to bring [TS]

  monkeys there's a monkey that violates [TS]

  the rocks face at one point I mean it's [TS]

  nice classy Abram peterburg you know [TS]

  friday night lights here but the classic [TS]

  my favorite part of the movie is [TS]

  everything Christopher Walken says [TS]

  because I swear he had to be making this [TS]

  all up and at the very end of the movie [TS]

  and you can use the spoiler and if you [TS]

  want but it doesn't really matter of [TS]

  course the locals turn on him and shoot [TS]

  him and get him down in the street and [TS]

  as he's dying he's spinning around with [TS]

  his gun in his hand he goes you [TS]

  ungrateful boom-boom buzz and drops yeah [TS]

  and you're just sitting there going what [TS]

  the yeah and there was all I'm glad you [TS]

  ate i'm glad you kept highbrow oh yeah [TS]

  David thank you see if I like almost [TS]

  everything John Carpenter did in the [TS]

  early eighties this is probably my [TS]

  favorite 1984 Starman oh nice touching [TS]

  tale of a space alien and the [TS]

  life-giving power of his magical glowing [TS]

  balls [TS]

  Jeff Bridges jeff bridges uh is a space [TS]

  alien he gets the gold disc that was [TS]

  sent off on Voyager 2 telling everybody [TS]

  in outer space come to earth we love [TS]

  visitors and naturally government shoots [TS]

  down his spaceship sure you spend the [TS]

  rest of soccer to spend the rest of the [TS]

  round seeking out the alien to try and [TS]

  dissect him our love it because the [TS]

  performance by jeff bridges is fantastic [TS]

  I shows pitch-perfect bemusement at at [TS]

  all of our earth traditions and speech [TS]

  patterns and his near orgasmic reaction [TS]

  to his first taste of dutch apple pie is [TS]

  one of the best moments of any [TS]

  performance sites on the eighties got an [TS]

  Oscar nom for ya [TS]

  oscar nomination you know he's good [TS]

  bemusement yes this is this is some of [TS]

  his best beam usery alright love it [TS]

  Starman good stuff Karen Allen and [TS]

  bridges have a real nice sweet genuine [TS]

  organically grown relationship in it and [TS]

  also want to put out a thumbs up to the [TS]

  score which I always assumed was John [TS]

  Carpenter's but turns out is by Jack [TS]

  Nietzsche okay good stuff [TS]

  all right Monty petey wheatstraw [TS]

  is that is that the director of the [TS]

  movie that is the movie it is sometimes [TS]

  called pd wheatstraw the devil's [TS]

  son-in-law stars and sorry Rudy ray [TS]

  Moore who is better known as dolomite [TS]

  from 1977 Rudy ray Moore was most famous [TS]

  as a comic he recorded incredibly filthy [TS]

  long-playing albums for people and he [TS]

  would do a tale of the signifying monkey [TS]

  where everything rhymed [TS]

  I don't have time to get into exactly [TS]

  how one of his rhymes sort of made it [TS]

  into Rapper's Delight a couple years [TS]

  later that I assure you it's fascinating [TS]

  he does do some kung foo he clearly [TS]

  likes kungfu but he cannot do come [TS]

  through at all [TS]

  and unlike a sensible movie where you [TS]

  bring a stunt double he just kind of [TS]

  waves his hands in a way he thinks looks [TS]

  like comfort food and then everybody [TS]

  falls down for Rudy ray Moore awesome [TS]

  awesome petey wheatstraw kung fools [TS]

  blaxploitation combo [TS]

  yes excellent alright John buying this [TS]

  list I guess I've realized that case [TS]

  everyone will have realized early that I [TS]

  can't have a man-crush on George Clooney [TS]

  yeah so here's another hit another [TS]

  journey movie club yea in language [TS]

  specific combination of my out of sight [TS]

  pic and my Good Shepherd and I'm a Good [TS]

  Shepherd pic yeah kind of its syriana [TS]

  this is George Clooney as a rumpled spy [TS]

  it's a serious spy movie it has a plot [TS]

  that people used to say was the most [TS]

  confusing plot of any movie and they [TS]

  couldn't keep track of but it's totally [TS]

  not confusing you just watch the movie [TS]

  and don't like check twitter the whole [TS]

  time you will be able to follow it [TS]

  the plot is good it's interesting it's [TS]

  smart I satisfying conclusion and the [TS]

  pictures George Clooney with a really [TS]

  rocking beer [TS]

  alright circus out the drop the mic clue [TS]

  need you've included dan what about you [TS]

  as much as I love Harrison Ford for me [TS]

  the iconic Jack Ryan will always be Alec [TS]

  Baldwin in the hunt for red october [TS]

  which is also the best of the tom clancy [TS]

  books in that series also you get sean [TS]

  connery as a rush [TS]

  in submarine kappa which really makes [TS]

  the movie for me cover mounting for sure [TS]

  but i think that and and just a great [TS]

  film you get you know james earl jones [TS]

  as his boss and one of the really just [TS]

  fantastic Cold War spy films as Sean [TS]

  Connery tries to defect with a nuclear [TS]

  suddenly submarine from the Soviet Union [TS]

  great great movie really good tension [TS]

  and yeah the crazy Ivan which which [TS]

  later gets reference in firefly yeah I [TS]

  had both of your head sneakers and that [TS]

  is that sneakers i put sneakers i put [TS]

  down at the bottom like Daniel probably [TS]

  pick that one so let him after one but I [TS]

  didn't want you to take red october [TS]

  those low blow [TS]

  it's worth the same person John you [TS]

  remember need to remind me out [TS]

  that's good 1i am going I'm going to [TS]

  pick in my lightning round pick i'm [TS]

  going to pick once from 2007-10 hansard [TS]

  marketa irglova it's been turned into a [TS]

  musical at won the oscar for best song [TS]

  it is a charming low-budget movie about [TS]

  an Irish musician and a woman who's an [TS]

  immigrant from Eastern Europe who meet [TS]

  and he shows he basically he shows her [TS]

  how to play the piano and they fall in [TS]

  love and it's and they all the [TS]

  characters are people who can sing and I [TS]

  believe will enhance our composed most [TS]

  of the music for this movie himself and [TS]

  he performs it and it really is kind of [TS]

  an amazing it's got a great vibe and the [TS]

  music is good and the story is really [TS]

  interesting and bittersweet and it's not [TS]

  a it's not a really sappy kind of love [TS]

  story if there's a lot of complexity to [TS]

  it and it's set in Dublin and so it's [TS]

  gotta some nice of the gritty feel of [TS]

  being around you know busking on the [TS]

  streets of Dublin and things like that [TS]

  and I like it a lot [TS]

  I find it incredibly charming so once [TS]

  it's what i choose we can do one more [TS]

  lightning-round if you guys have the [TS]

  something in the you ready [TS]

  you gotta lighten I can do it all right [TS]

  maybe I can do a straight lightning [TS]

  strikes twice go ahead Michael Apted is [TS]

  56 up latest chapter in a plague [TS]

  documentary series [TS]

  it started with a BBC british television [TS]

  documentary which they interviewed [TS]

  seven-year-old British kids from all [TS]

  different like social strata with the [TS]

  idea that you know if we interview that [TS]

  the this is this is the future they all [TS]

  face there's a lower class person here [TS]

  someone born to upper-class go into the [TS]

  pot school and Michael Apted who was [TS]

  just someone who worked on that [TS]

  documentary decided to let visit the [TS]

  seven-year-olds at age 14 and ok let's [TS]

  visit 21 and now there are 56 years old [TS]

  and every seven years he goes back and [TS]

  whoever wants to participate the [TS]

  interview them all again and so the last [TS]

  one just came out i think was just last [TS]

  year and it's cool because now they're [TS]

  at the age where they're elderly they [TS]

  have grandkids some of them have [TS]

  different sort of perspectives towards [TS]

  their own participation in the [TS]

  documentary and this is there talking to [TS]

  a filmmaker someone who they've [TS]

  literally no now all of their lives so [TS]

  this is sort of like the closest we're [TS]

  going to get to the truman show ever [TS]

  as these are people whose lives have [TS]

  been at least months every seven years [TS]

  subject to popular speculation and [TS]

  scrutiny so and it's tempting to see [TS]

  that kind of course the apt is going to [TS]

  be occasionally be unfair and when they [TS]

  see someone who is also not going to the [TS]

  voice but so who's now I'm a lawyer and [TS]

  now I've got incredible amounts of money [TS]

  now I have a states and now what one as [TS]

  i'm talking about how nice it is to have [TS]

  nice things for my family [TS]

  I'm gonna cut back to him at seven years [TS]

  old talking about why some people [TS]

  succeed and why some people fail and [TS]

  this is why sometimes these documentary [TS]

  subjects are not very happy with Michael [TS]

  Apted because they keep he keeps doing [TS]

  that but then of course there's ID [TS]

  entire series is worth is worth seeing [TS]

  you can pretty much dropped the needle [TS]

  at any point in the series and have a [TS]

  great time [TS]

  highly recommended documentary series [TS]

  alright David [TS]

  alright this is one of those films that [TS]

  I sit down and say you know [TS]

  ok watch this it's a world war two film [TS]

  from the mid-sixties called where Eagles [TS]

  dare based on as alistair maclean novel [TS]

  great movie [TS]

  yeah Richard Burton Clint Eastwood going [TS]

  behind enemy lines playing spy games [TS]

  with Nazis at a castle high up in the [TS]

  air called the equals nest which at you [TS]

  know just you know some fantastic [TS]

  reverses and [TS]

  and tricks and con games and you know [TS]

  people changing loyalties back and forth [TS]

  and one of the most thrilling and I mean [TS]

  you can tell most of it is done with [TS]

  like rear projection but just a [TS]

  thrilling fight set-piece on a cable car [TS]

  back and forth going up to the strange [TS]

  castle but Richard Burton and clint [TS]

  eastwood just really good and the scene [TS]

  where they just string all the grenade [TS]

  yeah gather it's just for like yeah it [TS]

  gets ridiculous but it's awesome it's so [TS]

  good [TS]

  great movie and efforts are going [TS]

  broadsword calling Danny Boy broadsword [TS]

  calling Danny alright Steve you got one [TS]

  more [TS]

  what's gonna be alright here it is in [TS]

  1979 my parents in order to capture for [TS]

  posterity the acting stylings of their [TS]

  seven-year-old son bought our families [TS]

  first VCR which was this massive [TS]

  200-pound beast with honest-to-god wood [TS]

  paneling it looks like a family of four [TS]

  can use it as a fallout shelter at the [TS]

  time you know that VCRs were new so you [TS]

  could buy movies on VHS but they were [TS]

  like eight and each of them cost you [TS]

  about ninety dollars so it the film my [TS]

  dad bought to test this thing out on em [TS]

  I watched it so many times is the [TS]

  Poseidon Adventure from 1970 you [TS]

  yeah I wanted to get on some of that [TS]

  sweet gene hackman action [TS]

  are you really like always good i love [TS]

  the Poseidon Adventure i love gene [TS]

  hackman and these are two that are just [TS]

  made for each other you know about rogue [TS]

  wave knocks over the Queen Mary onto its [TS]

  back and then a handful of survivors try [TS]

  to make their way up to the bottom of [TS]

  the ship [TS]

  it's a fairly simple concept but it's [TS]

  done extremely well and you just can't [TS]

  go wrong with Gene Hackman and Ernest [TS]

  Borgnine spitting pieces of the scenery [TS]

  at each other [TS]

  it is one of my favorite films i [TS]

  understand their people to consider this [TS]

  a guilty pleasure those people are wrong [TS]

  analysis I'd adventure Shelley Winters [TS]

  entered allergy mode having to save the [TS]

  day by swimming underwater [TS]

  yes [TS]

  that's a big deal it could fall Wow but [TS]

  yet unleashed Maureen Montgomery on this [TS]

  world and that is a terrible thing I can [TS]

  understand why some people don't feel so [TS]

  good about the side adventure that was [TS]

  the disaster [TS]

  that's right disaster after the davonte [TS]

  come through us one more time one [TS]

  workshop i'm gonna go with black [TS]

  dynamite [TS]

  yeah but I've actually heard of no it's [TS]

  super good like it's pretending to be a [TS]

  bad blaxploitation movie but it's [TS]

  actually really funny it's eric michael [TS]

  jai white who is an authentic martial [TS]

  artist and huge muscley guy so already [TS]

  it's got more fighting for the ability [TS]

  than a lot of actual blaxploitation [TS]

  movies all the music in it sounds [TS]

  exactly like blaxploitation music which [TS]

  means it sounds amazing and it's just [TS]

  really funny and has some really good [TS]

  fights in today if you only watch one [TS]

  blaxploitation parody and you should [TS]

  this is the West is going on all right [TS]

  good [TS]

  wait you should only watch one you're [TS]

  saying yeah i'm gonna say don't bother [TS]

  watching [TS]

  don't be a menace something something [TS]

  something to your friends in the hood [TS]

  watch black dynamite Anton and you can't [TS]

  go wrong [TS]

  Black Dynamite is the good [TS]

  blaxploitation parody movie that's all [TS]

  you need to take a right got it John [TS]

  so my final pic is going to be picked [TS]

  based on the traditional criteria of [TS]

  movie I saw on television this past week [TS]

  huh and was reminded that it exists and [TS]

  that I've seen it before [TS]

  this is a simple plan 1998 movie by Sam [TS]

  Raimi not starring bill paxton remember [TS]

  when he could open a movie he was the [TS]

  leading man [TS]

  Bridget not let the female a BF well you [TS]

  know and I'm Billy Bob Thornton who I'd [TS]

  forgotten was even in this movie the [TS]

  first time I saw it because the first [TS]

  time I saw it I didn't know who Billy [TS]

  Bob Thornton was but i was reminded [TS]

  watching this that Billy Bob Thornton [TS]

  can actually act is pretty darn good as [TS]

  a reason he became famous and then [TS]

  presented series of bad movies and [TS]

  became a parody of himself but anyway [TS]

  he's a good actor [TS]

  it's it's sort of a proto Fargo it's [TS]

  kinda like Fargo minus minus the humor [TS]

  but with like a black shriveled heart [TS]

  and in place of the humor [TS]

  and interviews and the outcome of the [TS]

  movie is entirely predictable you know [TS]

  exactly what's going to happen and then [TS]

  it happens but it somehow keeps you [TS]

  watching anyway so it becomes like this [TS]

  is definitely like and if it comes on TV [TS]

  it comes on TV never seen you should [TS]

  watch it i think i've seen that one then [TS]

  and i think it was good [TS]

  if I just seeing it now like you're like [TS]

  oh I've seen so many better movies do [TS]

  the same thing and that's true but you [TS]

  know those movies didn't exist in 1998 [TS]

  so like to give a credit [TS]

  alright it's based on a really good [TS]

  novel to all right who mm novelist wrote [TS]

  the screenplay [TS]

  yeah damn what do you have for me i'm [TS]

  sticking with the alec baldwin train for [TS]

  the first movie then I ever saw [TS]

  it's a great train you can yell it you [TS]

  can yell at people and play words with [TS]

  friends as long as you like [TS]

  yeah like fun train the first movie I [TS]

  ever went to see by myself like without [TS]

  parents with my friend Jason toss get [TS]

  ready to field everybody was the 1994 [TS]

  movie The Shadow the whole application [TS]

  of the Orson Welles regular love this [TS]

  movie [TS]

  terrible campaign movie great movie [TS]

  fantastic i thought i thought was a [TS]

  solid solid yeah your boy elizacass [TS]

  didn't boil Jonathan winters in miquelon [TS]

  Tim Curry Penelope Ann Miller like great [TS]

  movie and like just totally plays up the [TS]

  camp which is for me is the best part [TS]

  which is the University battle Lamont [TS]

  Cranston as the No moonlights as the [TS]

  shadow and John loan who plays shiwan [TS]

  khan with the last remaining you know [TS]

  descendant of genghis khan is here to [TS]

  take over the world and yet they have [TS]

  this great like chemistry between the [TS]

  two of them you know he'll talk about [TS]

  taking over the world and say and by the [TS]

  way where did you get that tie brooks [TS]

  brothers as that midtown you know like [TS]

  it just it goes all completely off the [TS]

  rails and seems totally aware that it's [TS]

  a parody of itself and it's just it's [TS]

  just delightful and alec baldwin you [TS]

  know I don't know he's this is his you [TS]

  know one of his comedic bright spots [TS]

  sort of before he made his later [TS]

  resurgence as such a great comedic actor [TS]

  I a kid you know I have the shadow [TS]

  action figures of like regular Alec [TS]

  Baldwin and then they did an invisible [TS]

  yes [TS]

  yeah that's awesome well I had am so i [TS]

  had to get this movie in region 2 DVD [TS]

  because it did not exist in region one [TS]

  in white sky me a pan and scan and I was [TS]

  like no way am i doing that [TS]

  wow I'm so i had to i have a region free [TS]

  DVD player still for the shadow [TS]

  alright so it's come to me for the last [TS]

  pic and what I really want to do here is [TS]

  just pick Star Wars about that it [TS]

  occurred to me I might like nobody's [TS]

  pictures yet and say in your face [TS]

  John siracusa and mourn because Star [TS]

  Wars is still laying out there we did a [TS]

  whole draft and you didn't pick Star [TS]

  Wars picked a good sorry but who dress [TS]

  but here's the thing i'm not gonna do it [TS]

  mostly because Monty has taught me an [TS]

  important lesson which is people are [TS]

  aware of Star Wars i'm not going to do [TS]

  anything other than say in your face [TS]

  which i just said and make a real pet [TS]

  nice yeah that's right that's right it's [TS]

  siracusa did what blood sport is still [TS]

  available jasmine yes so i'm going to [TS]

  i'm gonna instead pick a movie that [TS]

  maybe not everybody knows about that i [TS]

  enjoy which is a 1991 film that is a a [TS]

  an homage to alfred hitchcock directed [TS]

  by kenneth branagh called get again ice [TS]

  which I which I like a lot and my wife [TS]

  and I still quote this movie to each [TS]

  other mostly in the context of [TS]

  brandishing a pair of scissors and think [TS]

  these are for you and then we put the [TS]

  scissors down safely because you don't [TS]

  run with scissors in the house it's a [TS]

  it's a fascinating story about a man and [TS]

  woman in the present day or in 1991 and [TS]

  and in black and white in the past and [TS]

  you get the sense that they have been [TS]

  reincarnated and there's a an [TS]

  interesting story about that there's a [TS]

  it's a he's a friend on the past is a [TS]

  musician in Hollywood emma thompson it [TS]

  there's questions about is the [TS]

  reincarnation real or not there's a [TS]

  really nice twist their that happens [TS]

  derek jacobi is in it he is fantastic [TS]

  there is a there is a a brief Campbell [TS]

  Scott appearance which is hilarious [TS]

  because you think a maybe he's in this [TS]

  movie [TS]

  and then he goes away again and it's [TS]

  very funny and and also there's a very [TS]

  strange cameo by robin williams which is [TS]

  actually not bad at all it's actually [TS]

  pretty good and who's the other person I [TS]

  wanted to mention here Andy Garcia is in [TS]

  this and he's a cop in the past and then [TS]

  he also makes a present-day appearance [TS]

  later in the movie that's actually [TS]

  pretty great and it is definitely a [TS]

  twisty turny Hitchcock kind of feeling [TS]

  movie i think this i'm not sure if this [TS]

  was the movie that branded erected right [TS]

  after he directed Henry the fifth but it [TS]

  was not it was not soon after that [TS]

  yeah there's that was his follow-up yeah [TS]

  it's written by the guy who wrote out of [TS]

  sight [TS]

  yes got Frank so see it's all connected [TS]

  and it's a lot of fun and I think it [TS]

  gets overlooked now and some really nice [TS]

  twists and and you know Kenneth Branagh [TS]

  made a bunch of really good movies in [TS]

  the in the late eighties and early [TS]

  nineties and then you know he made other [TS]

  movies later but this was this was a [TS]

  really good really good fun [TS]

  Hitchcock inspired thriller with this [TS]

  interesting supernatural overtone of are [TS]

  these people you know reincarnated from [TS]

  the people who were here in Los Angeles [TS]

  50 years before and there's an actually [TS]

  forgot this movie existed yeah I [TS]

  remember loving it when I saw that's why [TS]

  I didn't pick star wars as i thought you [TS]

  know this is a great movie i think [TS]

  people should see it and you may not [TS]

  have even heard about it so dead done [TS]

  the right thing said well done again [TS]

  great title to there's also that little [TS]

  voyeuristic to thrill you get when you [TS]

  know you're watching a movie in which [TS]

  the two leads are married and within a [TS]

  couple years after this movie horse yes [TS]

  so you try to figure okay did it happen [TS]

  during the shooting of this movie or [TS]

  were they working out some of the [TS]

  problems of their existing wasn't [TS]

  present during this movie because then [TS]

  they did much ado about nothing and [TS]

  they're both in that to read that right [TS]

  but that's their professional [TS]

  responsible they said look we're gonna [TS]

  stay together for the perception they [TS]

  didn't do that but yes it's possible but [TS]

  it does it adds to the kind of classic I [TS]

  actually think this moving my work [TS]

  better now that it's been out for 20 [TS]

  years as a kind of you into the back [TS]

  classic movie kind of feel might [TS]

  actually serve it better but anyway dead [TS]

  again cans branta [TS]

  thank you something very enterprising [TS]

  one of our listeners is going to find a [TS]

  way to connect all of our movies [TS]

  together except for Monty want me to [TS]

  connect together and then you just need [TS]

  one at Monte Pikmin of Monty's movies [TS]

  can connect to us and then we're all set [TS]

  but that's okay cause everybody gets [TS]

  their own day I wasn't convinced that my [TS]

  movies only needed to cohere with [TS]

  themselves so thats little later i'm [TS]

  just saying some conspiracy theorist of [TS]

  a of a listener is gonna be like wait [TS]

  this person is in this movie and that's [TS]

  directed by the same person who directed [TS]

  this movie who did the music for this [TS]

  movie and then they're gonna figure out [TS]

  they're all connected [TS]

  except for like Miami connection [TS]

  yes ironically enough strange one of the [TS]

  guys and kill and kill again somehow [TS]

  went on to be in the guard recruiter the [TS]

  gods must be crazy [TS]

  okay okay it might take a couple steps [TS]

  in yeah we might win my somebody will [TS]

  come up with a grand unified theory of [TS]

  the uncomfortable movie draft but it was [TS]

  98 degrees of the incomparable yes [TS]

  exactly [TS]

  well so that's it we have we have picked [TS]

  a bunch of movies yes we have a mission [TS]

  accomplished [TS]

  why did we do this again that's what [TS]

  we're here to do you might we could [TS]

  debate what else we did but we did that [TS]

  we picked 35 movies and we have now [TS]

  drafted the second annual incomparable [TS]

  film festival has come to its conclusion [TS]

  our movie expert on the uncomfortable [TS]

  and he's going to be analyzing the draft [TS]

  picks that you just heard Phil welcome [TS]

  and thank you Jason thank you for having [TS]

  me here [TS]

  yes it's very nice to have you now of [TS]

  course people may know you from your [TS]

  time doing the incomparable old movie [TS]

  club no episode 8 they may know me from [TS]

  previous episode a few that's right [TS]

  and indeed as they know you as Dwight [TS]

  David Eisenhower yes classic comedy bit [TS]

  never to be repeated exactly so I I've [TS]

  asked you as a an opinionated person [TS]

  about movies to duty Mel Kiper Jr style [TS]

  that's on ESPN reference nerds analysis [TS]

  of the movie draft picks and to tell us [TS]

  who the who the winners and the losers [TS]

  were in the incomparable movie dropped [TS]

  just completed [TS]

  well i've i've done my Mel Kiper Jr wig [TS]

  with its a formidable widow's peak [TS]

  yes fans and um I i have to say a knocko [TS]

  started off the draft strong with what [TS]

  what a number one pick of the [TS]

  conversation right I as we are having [TS]

  now a conversation do I mean a fantastic [TS]

  pic and he follows it up with a with a [TS]

  great one two punch and I'm thinking oh [TS]

  this is gonna be the this is going to be [TS]

  the the oft-overlooked nineteen [TS]

  seventies great drafts and then then [TS]

  comes the curveball with the with the [TS]

  big year which i haven't seen i I've [TS]

  heard it's alright it's a movie about [TS]

  birdwatchers though more recent some [TS]

  people don't like that move now some [TS]

  people do not i love the book the book [TS]

  is by a Sports Illustrated writer is a [TS]

  very good but i have the the movies on [TS]

  my watch list i haven't gotten to it to [TS]

  looking at it yet but that my main [TS]

  objection to it is you have you have [TS]

  this big theme going Andy and then you [TS]

  you deviate from your plan I believe he [TS]

  had some movies sniped from him [TS]

  oh well then we go into the death set [TS]

  which is alright not my favorite Hepburn [TS]

  and Tracy movie that would be patent [TS]

  Mike and then I think he just in the in [TS]

  the last round he loses the plot with [TS]

  the with 56 and up a documentary which [TS]

  documentaries are all right but a [TS]

  multi-part documentary is is he busy [TS]

  drafting all of the document [TS]

  various jason or just the 1i think he's [TS]

  driving just the one but who people if I [TS]

  went to a film festival and said all [TS]

  right here's part 7 of this documentary [TS]

  series that you haven't seen the first [TS]

  six parts of I would burn down with [TS]

  theater previously and I would be and [TS]

  punch 26 up and people would would build [TS]

  a statue in my honor I say built burning [TS]

  down with theater so a great draft just [TS]

  that that went off the rails [TS]

  alright fair enough what about a monkey [TS]

  Ashley Monty has succeeded I think in [TS]

  that he picked five movies I I couldn't [TS]

  die wouldn't recognize them if you [TS]

  showed them to me now so so well done to [TS]

  you mami Ashley says the movie expert [TS]

  who's seen none of your movies he's [TS]

  outwitted you have saying I see I've [TS]

  heard of Miami connection yes people [TS]

  I've heard nice things about Miami [TS]

  connection but all the rest it is all he [TS]

  i think he picked pops and whistles and [TS]

  better and oh yeah that film i think [TS]

  those workers other pics you know the [TS]

  day after we recorded the incomparable [TS]

  movie draft i listened to an episode of [TS]

  the flophouse that that site's Miami [TS]

  connection i want hey Monty that's your [TS]

  movie the movie everyone is talking [TS]

  about on podcast these days i guess so [TS]

  good job Monty yes if it pops up on one [TS]

  of the British football podcast that I [TS]

  listen to will know something's up [TS]

  yeah yeah viral marketing gone awry yeah [TS]

  where's our money [TS]

  Miami connection guys guess we need a [TS]

  miami connection [TS]

  alright David Lord David Laura I'm [TS]

  trying to make the the make sense of his [TS]

  pics if he went in with the theme if he [TS]

  went in with a with a plan of attack and [TS]

  it seems to be random stuff i like my [TS]

  guess was his theme II wonder boys [TS]

  tenenbaums there-there there-there [TS]

  movies of a kind [TS]

  I suppose you squint hard enough yeah [TS]

  it's sort of in the same same genre and [TS]

  hey night of the iguana [TS]

  that's nice that's a good pic he loses [TS]

  me with the rundown this is this this is [TS]

  his 56 and up this is his Waterloo I [TS]

  actually paid good American money to see [TS]

  this in the theater [TS]

  why would you do that because i am [TS]

  married to a woman who quite enjoys the [TS]

  movie presence of Dwayne [TS]

  rock Johnson and so so i sat in the [TS]

  theater and watch the movie and it's um [TS]

  it's a movie if it runs for about a [TS]

  hundred and eligible for the draft yeah [TS]

  you tell me it is eligible there's a [TS]

  beginning a middle and then the [TS]

  characters speak and something happens [TS]

  and then you all go home and and rather [TS]

  throw yeah yeah [TS]

  and even though I i sat in the movie and [TS]

  maintain possession of my five weeks [TS]

  throughout if you if you gave me a quiz [TS]

  on plot points right now I couldn't tell [TS]

  you what happened in it and yet of all [TS]

  the movies in Christendom this is one [TS]

  David lawyer would pick so i don't even [TS]

  he picked where Eagles dare I don't even [TS]

  think that is the best Clint Eastwood [TS]

  battles Nazis picture that he could have [TS]

  picked but without having these heroes [TS]

  is a tank driver and I believe Don [TS]

  Rickles system Kelly's heroes if if [TS]

  memory serves and I think memory is [TS]

  serving here that's that's the portion [TS]

  of my brain where I stored the plot of [TS]

  the rundown is instead possessed by [TS]

  we're done wrinkles appear all right [TS]

  a puzzling draft it he stumbles late [TS]

  ok so sort of like an archos got [TS]

  stronger than just all right that might [TS]

  that might be related the fact that I [TS]

  told people to bring you know three or [TS]

  so pics and then they everybody made [TS]

  things up afterward maybe my fault a [TS]

  little bit now you gotta come prepared [TS]

  with Raph you do you have to have a deep [TS]

  bored you do i would not if I ever were [TS]

  in a draft i would not walk into the [TS]

  room with less than a hundred movies [TS]

  alright fair enough a hundred movies or [TS]

  you're just winging it [TS]

  alright and you deserve the ridicule you [TS]

  get from a know-nothing jackass [TS]

  so let's let's go deep on steve lets his [TS]

  pics no no because if he is going to [TS]

  pick winnie the pooh and not take this [TS]

  exercise seriously then I don't see why [TS]

  I should all right fair enough he did he [TS]

  pick ups beside adventure well then he [TS]

  should have to sing the morning after [TS]

  oh well there's got to be a morning that [TS]

  let's talk about it i see if i say more [TS]

  than seconds I think you have to pay [TS]

  them [TS]

  let's talk about 10 more and then and [TS]

  just forget about Steve let's ok he was [TS]

  never here who dan more anode and more [TS]

  and well he has the most [TS]

  automatic unity I think of anyone in the [TS]

  draft him as-as-as you you can tell I [TS]

  kind of like the idea of thematic unit e [TS]

  I like movies that sort of flow and and [TS]

  go into each other [TS]

  unfortunately he has the single worst [TS]

  pic of and the draft which is which is [TS]

  the shadow [TS]

  oh now dan and I we don't always see [TS]

  eye-to-eye on movies he's a big fan of [TS]

  of Hudson Hawk rewrite and I i think [TS]

  that is one of the worst motion pictures [TS]

  pound-for-pound that has ever been been [TS]

  released the shadow I saw the shadow at [TS]

  a press screening in 1994 at for my [TS]

  college newspaper and i do not have [TS]

  happy memories of that time in my life [TS]

  perhaps 10 likes it also the shadow one [TS]

  of the one of the lamest superhero is I [TS]

  have the ability to cloud men's minds [TS]

  that's that's good you ask them [TS]

  complicated problems now I just started [TS]

  they get they get confused disoriented [TS]

  and I go about my business and um it was [TS]

  Alec Baldwin when Alec Baldwin's was [TS]

  desperately trying to find the movie [TS]

  franchise this is where you can get your [TS]

  l Alec Baldwin action figure we [TS]

  determine yes shadow indeed because he [TS]

  he he was originally the his franchise [TS]

  was gonna be the judge on Brian right [TS]

  jack ryan tom clancy beeson he and tom [TS]

  clancy didn't didn't get on [TS]

  so instead of Harrison Ford walked into [TS]

  that role and and Alec Baldwin was well [TS]

  I gotta get me on the sweet franchise [TS]

  train so the shadow looks like if it's [TS]

  got some legs and if appear Boyle is the [TS]

  is the lovable chauffeur in that movie I [TS]

  want to say so how so how do we do the [TS]

  math there if Dan's got uh good pics you [TS]

  said but then consistent pics and then [TS]

  the shadow [TS]

  well everyone has a reach in their draft [TS]

  everyone has their third there [TS]

  darko in the draft with LeBron James and [TS]

  Carmelo Anthony e he grabbed our co and [TS]

  and and that's where we are all right [TS]

  that's a basketball referee Anders well [TS]

  I don't even like basketball [TS]

  ok let's go to John siracusa I gave more [TS]

  in a run for his money in [TS]

  at least in terms of thematic [TS]

  consistency at least there was a a [TS]

  record a recognizable pattern there was [TS]

  no there were no crazy Ivan's to go back [TS]

  Jack Ryan and fighting the the the [TS]

  Russians in the in the submarine maybe [TS]

  I'd give him the edge he was he came the [TS]

  closest to to capture in this draft but [TS]

  then there's the Good Shepherd the Good [TS]

  Shepherd that not so good shepherd is [TS]

  what they should call it going like [TS]

  Robert De Niro's direction now I don't [TS]

  like the movie though the movie is [TS]

  basically i'm sure this is discussed [TS]

  earlier in the podcast but it's it's the [TS]

  history of the CIA is told through the [TS]

  eyes of Matt Damon who does not age [TS]

  within the movie and robert de niro [TS]

  short history [TS]

  robert de niro is the head of the CIA [TS]

  and his he's a diabetic wreck and each [TS]

  scene he's losing another limb and [TS]

  towards the end I think he's just a head [TS]

  in a box like barking orders at the [TS]

  diabetes it's getting me and and [TS]

  angelina jolie does the angelina jolie I [TS]

  I'm crime crazy and beautiful but mostly [TS]

  crazy and it's it's an emotionally dead [TS]

  movie to me and yeah it's probably the [TS]

  second or speak of the draft wow that's [TS]

  it stands out because again a really [TS]

  strong draft but everyone has their [TS]

  reach everyone has their as their their [TS]

  Achilles heel and this was Syracuse's [TS]

  alright well that wraps up all the [TS]

  people who picked yesterday everyone [TS]

  there's no need to talk about anyone [TS]

  else someone picked high-fidelity [TS]

  magnificent pic yes magnificent good and [TS]

  then the ceiling and I you know I'm not [TS]

  a Woody Allen fan yeah as I like my [TS]

  style I like Woody Allen and I liked [TS]

  that movie it's different from his other [TS]

  movies [TS]

  yeah i think if you were to go for [TS]

  nineteen eighties Woody Allen Purple [TS]

  Rose of Cairo might be a stronger [TS]

  selection but radio days is good to ya [TS]

  narrow the best and no no the special [TS]

  edition oh ok then [TS]

  oh that's alright once really not a [TS]

  apart for money this was the the movie [TS]

  that I've never heard of this movie [TS]

  about it it's not the most well it won [TS]

  the oscar for best song but that I love [TS]

  no endorsements then I look ya'll [TS]

  watching yeah like you say [TS]

  I believe the side that this might've [TS]

  what ask this might be the most relevant [TS]

  song to ever win the Oscar because it's [TS]

  a huge part of what happens in the movie [TS]

  and it's performed by its stars sure so [TS]

  it's actually written by it's actually [TS]

  he's not like and now Bruce Springsteen [TS]

  is gonna sing a song about a over the [TS]

  credits over the credits [TS]

  I i was going to say though I I didn't [TS]

  recognize it from the title and then I [TS]

  looked it up on IMDb and I said oh right [TS]

  that one that movie with the Irish [TS]

  people use Irish people [TS]

  yeah he's irish she's an Eastern [TS]

  European Bryant but yeah right that's [TS]

  the one [TS]

  okay well identified yes thank you and [TS]

  dead again [TS]

  where is everyone else in the draft seem [TS]

  to be the final round is that the shadow [TS]

  you you actually I think finish strong a [TS]

  good you you were one of the that you [TS]

  righted the ship [TS]

  oh you look here you closed out the [TS]

  draft was my duty to close the draft out [TS]

  on a run i couldn't make Star Wars time [TS]

  I like that again I think I think dead [TS]

  again is some an underappreciated movie [TS]

  it's been a while since I've seen it so [TS]

  maybe it doesn't hold up as well yeah i [TS]

  don't know i gotta go back and want to [TS]

  put a few but Kenneth Branagh's a pretty [TS]

  good director and that was a that was a [TS]

  nice modern day filmed war right little [TS]

  Hitchcock little hill ma join in [TS]

  alright so far you are you [TS]

  we do that around the house the anytime [TS]

  the scissors are being picked up so late [TS]

  on me who do you think who are winners [TS]

  and are losers from the incomparable [TS]

  second annual movie draft i think the [TS]

  the draft the the film festival i would [TS]

  go to the listeners are the real winners [TS]

  well yes listening yeah you know who [TS]

  really won anyone listening to this [TS]

  segment on to the end yeah they got to [TS]

  the end now can go on with their lives [TS]

  but um i would think that the winner the [TS]

  person whose film festival I would I [TS]

  would I would pay to go see would be Dan [TS]

  Morgan wow I would you want would you [TS]

  like to have dinner during the screening [TS]

  of the shadow that's when i check your [TS]

  email [TS]

  that's when I would run to the bathroom [TS]

  and maybe pick up some snacks or yeah or [TS]

  the whole movie you gotta step out yeah [TS]

  yeah I could die [TS]

  have a sandwich check on the babysitter [TS]

  see how she's doing but yeah I think he [TS]

  had the best draft uh second prize would [TS]

  be you or siracusa will say you since [TS]

  you're in the room with me good yeah [TS]

  excellent choice and circus it just may [TS]

  be a step behind and naco floor to over [TS]

  the map all over the place up and down [TS]

  highs and lows but money money was [TS]

  points for having a clear plan I don't [TS]

  be doing his selections out of a the at [TS]

  the drive-in movie theater at the edge [TS]

  of town [TS]

  exactly exactly and certainly there [TS]

  there would be I I think his has an [TS]

  audience i'm just not the audience right [TS]

  and i think that those that concludes [TS]

  all the noble who are in the draft is [TS]

  Steve what no there wasn't wasn't there [TS]

  you don't want to acknowledge dl5 anyone [TS]

  used to acknowledge that person [TS]

  all right we need them there you have it [TS]

  there's our post podcast and rocks and [TS]

  the Hound is your nineteen eighties [TS]

  disney pic alright and that wraps it up [TS]

  for the incomparables postgame [TS]

  post-draft film analysis edition thank [TS]

  you Phillip Michaels for being here and [TS]

  questioning all of our decision thank [TS]

  you it was very fun to ridicule other [TS]

  people's fondest choices without being [TS]

  in front of them now exactly that's the [TS]

  best kind of ridicule when you can do it [TS]

  from the safety of distance that's right [TS]

  and that brings us to the end of the [TS]

  incomparable film festival [TS]
