  rather from another planet Wow have [TS]

  anyone sent me has anyone seen the new [TS]

  idea what that is [TS]

  have the filmmakers seen this i'm [TS]

  shocked to learn that you would pick [TS]

  something obscure i don't think it's an [TS]

  obscure actually that was it's a it's a [TS]

  sci-fi movie about an alien lands on our [TS]

  planet fish out of water and is being [TS]

  pursued so you know kind of a normal [TS]

  plot but he's a black guy he's Joe [TS]

  Morton who I adore I gotta see Joe born [TS]

  live once terrific performer live and [TS]

  the only reason i watch eureka I was [TS]

  because Jim Morton was in it and he's [TS]

  also joe morgan display the scientists [TS]

  who does the wrong thing and events [TS]

  Skynet in Vienna to determine yeah yeah [TS]

  thank someone so the one of the twisting [TS]

  brother from the planet is he's mute and [TS]

  he's being pursued by some kind of [TS]

  aliens and there's a great scene at the [TS]

  end where you sort of taken in by [TS]

  african-american family and they're at [TS]

  some history exhibit he takes the kids [TS]

  there and they sort of except the name [TS]

  is a mute and he seems to have some [TS]

  interesting abilities and you know he [TS]

  can't these he points to this picture of [TS]

  dogs chasing a slave in this exhibit to [TS]

  the kids the kids like oh you're the dog [TS]

  right it's like yeah it's um it's a [TS]

  fascinating film john sayles a great [TS]

  movie [TS]

  great movie they're quick see done and [TS]

  all right like the anti powder [TS]

  haha wow you can pick that one if you [TS]

  want Scott your next you've got [TS]

  searching the hudsucker proxy what's [TS]

  next well I i am a fan of absurd silly [TS]

  things and so i will pick monty python [TS]

  and the holy ground here means my third [TS]

  pick because it is the funniest movie [TS]

  despite what some people may say it is [TS]

  the funniest movie ever made and i have [TS]

  seen it so many times i laugh everytime [TS]

  i watch it it is speaking quotable [TS]

  movies I you he can't there are people [TS]

  who can quote the whole thing i'm not [TS]

  one of those people because i am react [TS]

  one of those people [TS]

  well there you go and hot eat it i want [TS]

  for that i am i am currently eating it [TS]

  just so you know so many people I I I [TS]

  what more is there to say about [TS]

  multiplies and you know I've never [TS]

  actually met a person who told me that [TS]

  they did not think the Holy Grail was [TS]

  funny [TS]

  that's the only film i can say that of [TS]

  its it's a good way to see if someone [TS]

  has a it's another one of those ones [TS]

  that has like for everybody summer [TS]

  watching as a kid and when I was a kid [TS]

  the black night scene is like the [TS]

  funniest thing about world face but it [TS]

  takes time like some of the other stuff [TS]

  would like over my head [TS]

  obviously as like a ten-year-old or [TS]

  whatever when i watch that and some of [TS]

  it becomes much funnier later i also [TS]

  think it's one of those movies that is [TS]

  very funny to watch but in some ways is [TS]

  even funnier who remember to guess I [TS]

  don't know why that is but it's a weird [TS]

  sort of thing like thinking about it i [TS]

  find it funny and sometimes I watching [TS]

  oh yeah that's really funny but it [TS]

  doesn't make me laugh out loud as much [TS]

  as just thinking about it that's all [TS]

  right great pic and you made you made [TS]

  Steve eat it so greater mom beam alien [TS]

  and Patty shack around your list what is [TS]

  next hangout I'm seeing what is it [TS]

  multiplies on holy ground haha ah you [TS]

  actually Monty Python and the Holy Grail [TS]

  was on my list but kind of off in the [TS]

  corner because when i initially put it [TS]

  on my list I I realized I almost [TS]

  couldn't think of anything to say about [TS]

  it because I've seen it so many times I [TS]

  was the first one is about the memory [TS]

  didn't stop Scott from pick against it [TS]

  we can you say and not say anything [TS]

  about it really if I know when I had [TS]

  that Avenue open to me I almost [TS]

  certainly would have picked in the first [TS]

  round and and the eating would be in a [TS]

  different mouth wouldn't it but I guess [TS]

  if I let not having something to say [TS]

  stop me from joining this podcast a [TS]

  different view [TS]

  so instead for my third pic I'm gonna go [TS]

  with something that was actually [TS]

  mentioned in passing in another episode [TS]

  a few weeks ago but I feel it wasn't [TS]

  really giving its do it is in fact a [TS]

  kids movie about a talking pig 95s babe [TS]

  which yes it's about a talking pig it's [TS]

  a kids movie but it is also quite simply [TS]

  the the most heartfelt film children's [TS]

  or otherwise that i have ever seen i [TS]

  first saw that the theaters fresh out of [TS]

  college pretty much at the zenith of my [TS]

  bitter youthful cynicism and and over [TS]

  the course of that 90 minutes babe [TS]

  reduced me to wake grinning tear-stained [TS]

  up with people type didn't take [TS]

  obviously but it was a nice 90 minutes [TS]

  it's and I seen it to a good dozen times [TS]

  and and they're still I are at least [TS]

  five scenes that make me weep openly on [TS]

  every single viewing see i mentioned on [TS]

  the kids move your podcast and John and [TS]

  and lacks sort of didn't react but I [TS]

  thought oh geez [TS]

  is this a movie that everybody hates and [TS]

  I don't know because i will i love it [TS]

  unreservedly yeah i was shocked looking [TS]

  up information that it only had like a [TS]

  7.1 on IMDb which you know I just not [TS]

  exactly the the best measure but it [TS]

  surprised me a little bit that it was [TS]

  that low because to me it's it may be [TS]

  just the fact that it's it's viewed as [TS]

  kind of treacly and and you know it's [TS]

  funny I mean its just oh it's cool it's [TS]

  not it's not really sappy it's it's it's [TS]

  really funny but you know does have its [TS]

  happy moments but they're not they're [TS]

  certainly not to the fore and it is [TS]

  another one of those where you've got [TS]

  you know something that can be enjoyed [TS]

  on multiple levels by people of [TS]

  different ages i got a wacky talking [TS]

  animals the walkie-talkies singing mice [TS]

  you know the young kids love that and [TS]

  then you know when you're you got kids [TS]

  that are a little older they'll pick up [TS]

  on the just the lovely message which is [TS]

  basically just about prejudice and how [TS]

  it [TS]

  you know it can be no just basic decency [TS]

  can defeat it largely and and the adults [TS]

  will get even more out of that because [TS]

  you know you've got great bits like the [TS]

  narrator talking about the scene I guess [TS]

  where I thinks fly the sheep dog is [TS]

  trying to get the secret password from [TS]

  the sheep and of course their natural [TS]

  enemies and I think the narrator [TS]

  announces that the dog decides to talk [TS]

  extremely slowly because it's very well [TS]

  known that sheep are stupid and then and [TS]

  then when the Sheep respond he says the [TS]

  Sheep choose to talk extremely slowly [TS]

  because it's very well known that dogs [TS]

  are ignorant brute [TS]

  yeah yeah yeah yeah babes baby comes the [TS]

  sheep pig a because babe actually cares [TS]

  to talk to the sheep instead of just [TS]

  yelling out of men and I embossing [TS]

  around and that's that's how big he [TS]

  doesn't know any better than two pitches [TS]

  break stereotypes [TS]

  alright so babe great movie love it [TS]

  from the director and writer of Mad Max [TS]

  by the way yeah yeah it's a it's a [TS]

  strange movie because it almost [TS]

  everybody in it is Australian and yet [TS]

  they've made it sort of American and the [TS]

  accents are weird and the setting a [TS]

  strange and it's a weird it is it is [TS]

  also that fairytale quality because it [TS]

  is so in precise on where and when it is [TS]

  it's a very slowly and it's it's I love [TS]

  the direction to because everything kind [TS]

  of this is just a little bit off-kilter [TS]

  you know I mean it's it starts with of [TS]

  course the farm that's basically from [TS]

  you know a century ago it but it's in [TS]

  modern times because the kids come at [TS]

  Christmas and bring a fax machine yeah [TS]

  it's very strange to modern age x fax [TS]

  fax times and James Cromwell is amazing [TS]

  yep that's it alright John some somebody [TS]

  want to say say that'll do Pig pic [TS]

  that'll do that'll do that'll do steal [TS]

  thank thank you i have closure alright [TS]

  John I like bacon [TS]

  I can't oh did not turn me off the bike [TS]

  and my wife stopped eating pork after [TS]

  teen babe and has not met and and has [TS]

  not never had has never had pit pork [TS]

  sense [TS]

  well then I can't watch this Yeah Yeah [TS]

  right there is like seriously wearing [TS]

  like bacon don't watch big I think it [TS]

  kind of is highlander I eat more bacon i [TS]

  will become more like baby [TS]

  alright John go ahead for my third pic i [TS]

  debated moving this but I feel like it [TS]

  has to be in this position i'm going to [TS]

  select the godfather part two as one of [TS]

  the very rare sequels that can be argued [TS]

  is equal to or better than the original [TS]

  Empire Strikes Back of course being the [TS]

  other one and very few other ones come [TS]

  to monitor so true yeah that's a good [TS]

  example to ah but only because the first [TS]

  movie was so we're home yeah so this is [TS]

  better than what was widely recognized [TS]

  to be a great movie and it's strange [TS]

  because the godlike status is such a [TS]

  beautiful self contained movie you're [TS]

  like are also that was the story right [TS]

  you know it's not doesn't end on a [TS]

  cliffhanger really I and it in this was [TS]

  before the age of of sequels to [TS]

  everything is like God fault too oh man [TS]

  they're gonna ruin it this you know they [TS]

  had this great movie The Godfather [TS]

  always great actors in it was just just [TS]

  boy what a great movie and they're going [TS]

  to make a sequel is going to be awful [TS]

  and what do you do like by the end of [TS]

  the Godfather Michael Corleone is the [TS]

  Godfather he's gone from being nobody to [TS]

  you know sending to the throne and [TS]

  that's the end of the movie is like well [TS]

  then it's kind of like what you do after [TS]

  the end of Return of the Jedi it's like [TS]

  everything's okay now right like you [TS]

  have to manufacture some new conflict or [TS]

  something [TS]

  I and the bring the godfather to don't [TS]

  dance numbers is what you have to return [TS]

  the general yeah it is that they [TS]

  recognize that the end of Godfather one [TS]

  you sort of had a Michael closing the [TS]

  door on his new bride haha [TS]

  and that's how Hollywood movies end you [TS]

  know it's kinda like all right and then [TS]

  never get lights go on and we get off [TS]

  and leave but college is no actually [TS]

  going to keep the camera rolling sea [TS]

  alright so what is that like what was it [TS]

  like when you you've gotten this wife [TS]

  under these pretenses and are shutting [TS]

  her out how do you live the rest of your [TS]

  life like the only the movies end after [TS]

  the exciting part is over the godfather [TS]

  to keeps rolling and says here's Michael [TS]

  trying to be trying to fill the shoes of [TS]

  his father but kind of in in a new age [TS]

  that isn't the same age this valley grew [TS]

  up in and that's highlighted by a [TS]

  parallel flashback story showing his [TS]

  father's rise to become the original [TS]

  Godfather and the two it is basically [TS]

  like two great movies and combined into [TS]

  with Robert De Niro as the as the [TS]

  Corleone coming up in the in the if you [TS]

  want people play you because I would [TS]

  like to near to play me when I'm you [TS]

  and then Marlon Brando me before he's [TS]

  really fat as the older one and then I [TS]

  die so pretty good at it so my question [TS]

  for you John the first time I saw the [TS]

  godfather and i know this is [TS]

  sacrilegious and I've seen it since [TS]

  several times as the original movies but [TS]

  the first time i saw it was actually the [TS]

  complete epic which is where they [TS]

  actually take the deniro portion of [TS]

  godfather part two and run it first and [TS]

  then they run though it who would to do [TS]

  that Francis Ford Coppola that's not [TS]

  right but should like that Mike has been [TS]

  but it's interesting to view it that way [TS]

  but it's it's the wrong way to do it [TS]

  because that is the wrong way because [TS]

  Jax translation or like yeah exactly [TS]

  that's the whole second movie uh and so [TS]

  and the second movie is one of another [TS]

  rarity and the the the current age of [TS]

  movies is that it's basically a tragedy [TS]

  how often do you see a sort of [TS]

  big-budget lots of stars very long epic [TS]

  tragedy very rare unless it's like some [TS]

  you know a historical drama where you [TS]

  know it's got to end with something bad [TS]

  happening or something structure to that [TS]

  is yes there are many things that movie [TS]

  over tragic but I don't know if you [TS]

  would call the end of one [TS]

  uh-huh did ya also you know has frozen [TS]

  in carbonite but I'm starting three is [TS]

  the real tragedy at the industry trends [TS]

  that is you [TS]

  yeah alright so you're gonna have a [TS]

  little Godfather film festival here and [TS]

  yeah the only other thing I'd add is [TS]

  that the godfather to being the strange [TS]

  thing where it's a sequel that it did [TS]

  that stands up to its great predecessor [TS]

  the gravity of godfather to sort of [TS]

  sucks in Godfather one and that's why I [TS]

  think these two movies start to become [TS]

  started like orbit each other like [TS]

  binary stars and I have a very difficult [TS]

  time in any given day saying which one [TS]

  of the two i think is a bedroom like [TS]

  we're both grade they both win best [TS]

  picture oscar i know there was nominated [TS]

  for best picture I mean that i wasn't [TS]

  born yet yeah there's no way to look at [TS]

  information now Houston is now I know [TS]

  how did need some sort of its that's [TS]

  tough seeing seeing eyeball or still [TS]

  thing alright Godfather and godfather [TS]

  part two now and John's board and more [TS]

  in your next I'm gonna pick what's [TS]

  actually I second favorite movie [TS]

  after empire which was so cruelly [TS]

  snatched from my my clutches and that is [TS]

  david lean's 1962 epic lawrence of [TS]

  arabia which is a historical film but in [TS]

  many ways not so historical since the [TS]

  the actual mess of it is is Lou loudly [TS]

  and largely disputed however that aside [TS]

  it still makes a fantastic film and i [TS]

  believe it is on record as the longest [TS]

  film ever nominated and or at least [TS]

  never won for best picture somebody made [TS]

  reference earlier to a movie so long you [TS]

  felt that you needed intermission [TS]

  Lawrence of Arabia has an occasion [TS]

  intermission indeed and it's it's up [TS]

  it's a epic film on every scale and not [TS]

  just the story but you know I remember [TS]

  my parents taking me see it for the [TS]

  first time in the brattle theatre here [TS]

  in in cambridge and it's it's something [TS]

  that really you know it's a little [TS]

  easier now that you people have giant [TS]

  tvs in their home but it's something [TS]

  that deserves to be seen on a giant [TS]

  screen because if nothing else some some [TS]

  of the scenes are almost just impossible [TS]

  to a you know comprehend on a small [TS]

  screen i saw i saw 70-millimeter [TS]

  restoration of this when it first came [TS]

  out when I was in college and if [TS]

  anything she's got killer that is the [TS]

  way to see it because there are scenes i [TS]

  think particularly the introduction of [TS]

  Omar Charice keria sherif ali who [TS]

  there's this scene where he's you know [TS]

  in the desert of times you see it's a [TS]

  little dot again starts a little dot and [TS]

  they just let it ride out it's slow its [TS]

  deliberate [TS]

  it's just perfectly paced and time for [TS]

  everything and as I as you know speaking [TS]

  of Omar Sharif food who gives it gives a [TS]

  awesome performance here the entire cast [TS]

  you know despite the fact that they had [TS]

  to largely turn to debate or they ended [TS]

  up largely turning to non Middle Eastern [TS]

  actors to portray a lot of these [TS]

  characters such as alec guinness and [TS]

  anthony quinn there's a fantastic cast [TS]

  here with the oven all three of those [TS]

  guys plus obviously peter o'toole in the [TS]

  lead role in as a very complicated hero [TS]

  and there's having seen that [TS]

  in star wars before I saw this I i found [TS]

  it funny to see Alec Guinness out in the [TS]

  desert yes yes just that well yeah [TS]

  that's where he doesn't so that he lives [TS]

  there in the desert things out there in [TS]

  robes in particular one scene that I [TS]

  that that always jumps to mind is the 22 [TS]

  sort of launched a surprise attack on a [TS]

  city that is otherwise well-defended [TS]

  Lawrence insist they cross this really [TS]

  in almost uncrossable desert and at [TS]

  night which is the only time they can do [TS]

  it and someone gets lost along the way [TS]

  and he actually rides back to get them [TS]

  before the Sun comes up and then later [TS]

  on in the movie it is he is [TS]

  yea he is in order to keep peace [TS]

  Lawrence volunteers to kill someone who [TS]

  has murdered another member of another [TS]

  tribe for part of a blood feud and it [TS]

  turns out to be the guy that he saved [TS]

  yeah which is just a incredibly you know [TS]

  devastating moment and really doesn't [TS]

  want to shape this character and so it's [TS]

  it's a fascinating portrait of a you [TS]

  know whether you like him or not [TS]

  whatever you think of them a great man [TS]

  in the typically in the great man theory [TS]

  of things and it's just it's it is well [TS]

  worth watching the first half of it the [TS]

  pre intermission half i would be in my [TS]

  top three movies of all time [TS]

  second half is I feel like more [TS]

  problematic because that's sort of the [TS]

  downward spiral of lawrence and it's [TS]

  yeah it's it's more difficult in it and [TS]

  it I don't like it as much but it is [TS]

  it's not as uplifting but it'sit's yeah [TS]

  it is i think that's to me that's what [TS]

  makes it such a great movie is that it [TS]

  is not just about all this guy's awesome [TS]

  he's a hero and everything but like wow [TS]

  that comes with some really serious [TS]

  baggage she gets to Cairo and it's not [TS]

  also yeah a great score by of maurice [TS]

  jarre and yeah all over and fantastic [TS]

  Charlotte's great movie [TS]

  read your up boy okay i'm going to go [TS]

  here over to the comedy screwball side [TS]

  of things which with my number three [TS]

  favorite movie of all time which is [TS]

  Howard Hanks is bringing up baby which [TS]

  is a Katharine Hepburn and Carey grant [TS]

  playing off each other in this [TS]

  a very ridiculous story as as most [TS]

  screwballs are about basically a woman [TS]

  who mistakes and archaeologists for a [TS]

  zoologist and says oh my brother has [TS]

  invited me to or my brother has sent me [TS]

  a tame leopard please help me take care [TS]

  of him and of course the leopard [TS]

  disappears and then a untamed leopard [TS]

  gets out of the zoo and there's a point [TS]

  where Katherine Hepburn is locked up in [TS]

  a jail claiming to be part of a Ruffin [TS]

  tumble gang in a in accents that [TS]

  according to cary grant she has only [TS]

  learned from watching these kinds of [TS]

  films [TS]

  it's just I loved Katherine Hepburn she [TS]

  may be my all-time favorite actress on [TS]

  of the screen and this is one of her [TS]

  best performances she and Cary Grant [TS]

  have a scintillating screen chemistry [TS]

  and she is she just gets these great [TS]

  lion Susan there's there's one point [TS]

  where when the leopard has basically [TS]

  left left her room and climbed up onto [TS]

  the roof [TS]

  she's standing in the garden singing to [TS]

  it and Cary Grant come character he's [TS]

  comes out he's like what what are you [TS]

  doing [TS]

  and she's like well there's a leper or [TS]

  he's like what why are you singing to my [TS]

  roof and she's like well there's a [TS]

  leopard on your roof it's my leopard and [TS]

  I have to get it and to get and I have [TS]

  to sing and its senses wasn't supposed [TS]

  to close its way yeah it's like I I [TS]

  cannot stop laughing when i watch this [TS]

  movie [TS]

  yeah that's a good one Howard Hawks so [TS]

  bringing up baby but we got screwy [TS]

  screwball wacky i am going to save John [TS]

  the indignity of picking yet another [TS]

  gangster movie by picking martin [TS]

  scorsese's goodfellas here when i saw it [TS]

  was a revelation to one of my favorite [TS]

  movies i would argue that it's better [TS]

  than the Godfather only because I feel [TS]

  as great as The Godfather movies are [TS]

  better at what I like about goodfellas [TS]

  it's it's a reaction in some ways to the [TS]

  godfather and I'm not going to do three [TS]

  hours about goodfellas somebody else [TS]

  could do that but uh it's a great [TS]

  reaction to the Godfather in that it is [TS]

  messy and it's the kind of horrifying [TS]

  aspect of the mob these are going [TS]

  low-level mob guys and there's kind of [TS]

  horrific violence there's also this [TS]

  incredible style in the film the music [TS]

  is great the acting is great great [TS]

  performances robert de niro ray liotta [TS]

  Joe Pesci Lorraine Bracco just some [TS]

  great performances like I said funny [TS]

  it's like it's it Martin Scorsese in [TS]

  this movie I mean he is a master [TS]

  director at the peak of his powers [TS]

  surrounded by cinematographers and and [TS]

  film editors and actors who are all at [TS]

  their peaks and you get this movie that [TS]

  is very modern as it whereas the [TS]

  godfather is very classically put [TS]

  together and and the even the violence [TS]

  in The Godfather is a gentler sort of [TS]

  violence and the violence in goodfellas [TS]

  brutal and i love that as a reaction to [TS]

  kind of the the UH almost mythical [TS]

  violence of n tail of the Godfather that [TS]

  you get the flip side here and so what I [TS]

  really yeah I say it's better but what [TS]

  really what I do is I appreciate how [TS]

  different it was from the Godfather and [TS]

  and we went a long time without having [TS]

  any mob movies that were really of that [TS]

  standard and and goodfellas of that [TS]

  standard and I have to admit the [TS]

  violence is kind of hard to take and [TS]

  what I appreciate about it when I was 20 [TS]

  years old it's actually harder for me to [TS]

  watch it now at 40 but still whatever [TS]

  just a what a masterpiece fantastic [TS]

  movie one of my favorite movies i have [TS]

  had the poster hanging my mom my wife [TS]

  made me put it in the garage but it's [TS]

  still hanging so I goodfellas I i love [TS]

  it and now John doesn't have to pick it [TS]

  you're just breathing sighs you're [TS]

  welcome take Godfather Part 3 [TS]

  you're welcome John i was thinking of [TS]

  shifting off the end anyways I do have [TS]

  more pics yeah and I I and it wasn't [TS]

  exactly [TS]

  I next on my list but I want to balance [TS]

  this out so it isn't all just hate nerds [TS]

  from the eighties their movies for you [TS]

  on Jason's day I'm trying to spread it [TS]

  out a little bit so kind of toss [TS]

  Goodfellas and they're great great movie [TS]

  and it also i'm trying to be balanced a [TS]

  little bit by having some great drama on [TS]

  there so I don't look at my list later [TS]

  and go i picked what so good fellows [TS]

  classic i refer the rest of it to John [TS]

  love it great film so on the film [TS]

  festival first opened see many times [TS]

  since highly recommended [TS]

  wow I was no nonsense I've never even [TS]

  learned a little and Louisville we're [TS]

  gonna sit in the back row and and we may [TS]

  have some wine but we will i'm done next [TS]

  Scott I i was gonna pick funny bone five [TS]

  painfully since its particular i'm going [TS]

  to pick the movie that I saw when I was [TS]

  a little kid and it really turned me on [TS]

  to science fiction the Forbidden Planet [TS]

  starring leslie nielsen in a dramatic [TS]

  robe of you know before he was a comedy [TS]

  guy he was a dramatic actor and also a [TS]

  Robby the Robot yes and then Francis [TS]

  yeah thats very and I i watch that [TS]

  recently and I really didn't like it but [TS]

  it's it's it's so influential I mean you [TS]

  can see well first off the original Star [TS]

  Trek series is just a totally a knockoff [TS]

  of forbidden planet that mean they are [TS]

  directly know is i am is basically [TS]

  identical yeah Forbidden Planet you know [TS]

  Star Wars is still out there [TS]

  Craig moss Steve let's go ahead man i'm [TS]

  going to pick not Star Wars what I am in [TS]

  fact going to pick is a unlikely be on [TS]

  anybody else's list but it it is the [TS]

  great John Hughes film The Breakfast [TS]

  Club [TS]

  oh great it's a film that I like so if [TS]

  somewhat for its anthropological [TS]

  interest because it is a great snapshot [TS]

  of of teen life in the eighties although [TS]

  i think much of it still applies i think [TS]

  that the character archetypes haven't [TS]

  really changed all that much [TS]

  you probably won't find too many schools [TS]

  anymore without fences and metal [TS]

  detectors but mainly I think it's great [TS]

  because it's it's the singular spot on [TS]

  examination of the of the horrors of [TS]

  being a high schooler and and probably [TS]

  most accurate sympathetic depiction of [TS]

  teenagers in film you know these are [TS]

  reprobate sir precocious wiseasses just [TS]

  generally good kids who were victims of [TS]

  their parents or their coaches or their [TS]

  own personal circumstances you know it's [TS]

  it's very funny but it's it's also [TS]

  frequently painful and as a teenager I [TS]

  found it enormously enormously moving [TS]

  still do today iím man enough to admit [TS]

  that the story of Larry Lester's buns [TS]

  make me tear up [TS]

  being taped together yeah I i love that [TS]

  we the audience start off just like the [TS]

  kids now and we view him as their [TS]

  stereotype and then our eyes are open [TS]

  along with the characters is reassuring [TS]

  as a youth to know that no matter how [TS]

  angsty and misunderstood I was a geek [TS]

  the job in the popular chick were [TS]

  probably just as miserable [TS]

  only more popular that's not true i was [TS]

  not true actually i'm sorry it's not you [TS]

  at all [TS]

  no yeah intrusive their miserable in a [TS]

  different way [TS]

  ya know that they were the other [TS]

  miserable in a positive we'll see [TS]

  examples roll now yeah it all comes back [TS]

  around [TS]

  alright John alright so I want number [TS]

  four right yep my fourth pic I'm going [TS]

  to pick kill bill vol 1 and 2 as a unit [TS]

  which I will allow yes that's what i was [TS]

  getting at with some misdirection of the [TS]

  one of the other people on Twitter think [TS]

  either way with this street [TS]

  ah now that I don't not think this would [TS]

  come up a lot of people's top list [TS]

  because they always like a schlocky [TS]

  homage to the kind of movies and quentin [TS]

  tarantino likes which really is all of [TS]

  quentin tarantino's but damn he's just [TS]

  so good at it his all modules are better [TS]

  than the things that they're honoring [TS]

  almost all the time and especially in [TS]

  this case we've got part one which is [TS]

  this you know [TS]

  dramatic action movies only spy teams [TS]

  and everything that hooks you from [TS]

  seeing one with data that sort of grainy [TS]

  black-and-white shot of the bloody one [TS]

  Thurmond face the ends on it's your baby [TS]

  with the bang of the gun great [TS]

  top-caliber stuff there but just the [TS]

  movie by number part 1 by itself I [TS]

  wouldn't have put on my list part two is [TS]

  sort of the heart of this movie I don't [TS]

  know what you would call part1 some [TS]

  other part of the anatomy and it's [TS]

  surprisingly it in part to like it [TS]

  the dramatic scene at the end has a long [TS]

  commentary on the nature of Superman [TS]

  that is not played for laughs and if you [TS]

  want a Quentin Tarantino like this the [TS]

  royal with cheese scene isn't this funny [TS]

  notes it like he plays this stuff [TS]

  seriously the characters a series and by [TS]

  that point you're serious like oh my god [TS]

  I'm taking I'm taking this all seriously [TS]

  and I'm caught up in this moment this [TS]

  ridiculous and I i really love that [TS]

  there's that a lot of people say oh I [TS]

  like part one but i didn't like part2 if [TS]

  you only like part1 busy like some [TS]

  people beat each other up and with [TS]

  cartoon violence that's not what I come [TS]

  to you [TS]

  before I just think they're as a unit [TS]

  these two parts kept together into a [TS]

  beautiful young yang and I also think [TS]

  both these movies have the best use of [TS]

  music in the movies with the possible [TS]

  exception of good fellows which is an [TS]

  amazing feat for what's supposed to just [TS]

  be a you know a throwback kind of movie [TS]

  that's supposed to be fun I think [TS]

  there's so much more depth in this movie [TS]

  then would appear from if you look at [TS]

  the the DVD cover or read some reviews [TS]

  all right [TS]

  kill bill I i had a reservoir dogs on my [TS]

  list down a little bit but it did have [TS]

  that that's my favorite Tarantino but [TS]

  i'm not surprised to see Quentin [TS]

  Tarantino it brought up here then what [TS]

  about you [TS]

  I'm going to pick my favorite film by my [TS]

  favorite director Matt's alfred [TS]

  hitchcock's rear window which is an [TS]

  excellent a hey you know Hitchcock is is [TS]

  my favorite director because he is a [TS]

  master of what he does and that is you [TS]

  cannot it's hard to watch many of his [TS]

  movies without literally sitting on the [TS]

  edge of your seat and rear window for me [TS]

  is is my favorite in that regard because [TS]

  we're put in we as audiences are always [TS]

  captive uh in you know watching the [TS]

  movies we can't interact with the people [TS]

  on the screen you know we like to yell [TS]

  at them and tell them not to go in the [TS]

  basement has to get that noise because [TS]

  it's the dude with the chainsaw but in [TS]

  this movie our protagonist Jimmy Stewart [TS]

  is stuck in the exact same position he's [TS]

  broken his leg and he's watching he's [TS]

  reduced to sort of voyeuristically [TS]

  watching his neighbor's through his back [TS]

  window until we become sees this idea [TS]

  that this one guy is murdered his wife [TS]

  and i love that in like about half the [TS]

  movie you think maybe he's just bored [TS]

  and really you know paranoid about this [TS]

  and you just need some you know because [TS]

  he's been shut in and he's convalescing [TS]

  yeah he's just making stuff up and then [TS]

  you start to realize well there's [TS]

  something sinister going in here and so [TS]

  the whole cinema to cinematographic Lee [TS]

  the whole shooting of the backyard area [TS]

  through the rear window which sort of [TS]

  reflects the you know the movie screen [TS]

  itself is this fascinating may launch of [TS]

  all these different characters that he's [TS]

  keeping eyes on and it's just there are [TS]

  seen this you know pretty in particular [TS]

  scene later on where he sends his [TS]

  girlfriend sort of [TS]

  to investigate and she sneaks into the [TS]

  murderers apartment and he realizes he [TS]

  can see the the murderer coming back but [TS]

  he can't water because he's stuck and [TS]

  there's no way to tell her i mean this [TS]

  is a movie that would be ruined by cell [TS]

  phones right but you know you you see [TS]

  the way that do mr. react to me just [TS]

  look so terrified and you you start your [TS]

  heart starts pounding he's gonna come [TS]

  back and find her and I it's just it is [TS]

  it is the tip-top of Hitchcock's suspend [TS]

  yeah great one day one when you're up [TS]

  ok ok so my fourth one covers my deep [TS]

  love of Khan movies and that is rian [TS]

  johnson's the brothers bloom it's [TS]

  actually fairly recent movie it only [TS]

  came out a couple years ago and I've got [TS]

  to get out of a hat tip to paper moon [TS]

  here [TS]

  not exactly nominating two movies here [TS]

  but just paper moon is a great movie and [TS]

  it's very clearly influenced and [TS]

  brothers bloom and brothers bloom is [TS]

  maybe not a perfect film but there are [TS]

  parts of it that are just so fantastic [TS]

  and represent everything I love about [TS]

  the craft of storytelling and just [TS]

  movies in general it's a very [TS]

  exquisitely done film it's a it's shot [TS]

  much in the way that like big fish and [TS]

  the other like pseudo fairytale stories [TS]

  are where you're never quite sure what [TS]

  exactly what's real and what's not and [TS]

  that's the whole theme of the film is [TS]

  it's all playing on what's a con what's [TS]

  not what's fake what's real and they're [TS]

  plenty of great quotes from areas like [TS]

  the trick do not feeling cheated is to [TS]

  learn how to cheat or the perfect con is [TS]

  one where everyone involves get just [TS]

  what they wanted it's it's a masterful [TS]

  masterful play on storytelling & on & [TS]

  wordplay and it doesn't hurt that you [TS]

  have mark ruffalo Adrien Brody and I why [TS]

  am I forgetting the lead actresses name [TS]

  a horrible person [TS]

  Rachel Rachel place playing playing a [TS]

  very katharine hepburn s character in [TS]

  this movie and which is possibly why I [TS]

  like it but I don't want you you left [TS]

  out the best character but it oh yes [TS]

  bang bang bang bang who is amazing who [TS]

  basically is this is a mute japanese [TS]

  girl who happens to be a weapons [TS]

  demolitions expert and she tests weapons [TS]

  by blowing up barbie dolls [TS]

  there's it's it's fun and dramatic at [TS]

  the same time and you'll you'll laugh [TS]

  you'll cry and yes yes I'm sounding like [TS]

  a broken record here but also nathan [TS]

  johnson score was I believe Ryan [TS]

  Johnson's cousin something like that his [TS]

  score is possibly one of my favorite [TS]

  movie scores in recent times so is it [TS]

  maybe not my overall favorite movie of [TS]

  all time but high up there and [TS]

  definitely my favorite con movie right [TS]

  rounding out the film festival premise a [TS]

  little bit which is nice so great thank [TS]

  you i will make my fourth selection and [TS]

  i'm also trying to provide a little bit [TS]

  of variety in here and i'm gonna i [TS]

  believe one of the most fascinating [TS]

  areas of of American history and human [TS]

  history in fact is the attempt in the [TS]

  nineteen sixties for by the united [TS]

  states to put a man on the moon and i [TS]

  love that era and I love all of the NASA [TS]

  and Apollo program stuff i have read a [TS]

  lot about it and the pinnacle of this is [TS]

  actually the movie about the moon [TS]

  mission that went wrong which is ron [TS]

  howard's Apollo 13 starring tom hanks [TS]

  it's a movie that if you didn't know [TS]

  that it actually happened and it is [TS]

  almost exactly what really happened [TS]

  right down to some of the dialogue you [TS]

  wouldn't believe it [TS]

  you'd think it was a ridiculous [TS]

  Hollywood movie it is masterfully made [TS]

  and I you know run Howard just made a [TS]

  lot of kind of clunky movies as well as [TS]

  some good movies but the the technology [TS]

  used the the special effects that [TS]

  replicate the launch of the Saturn five [TS]

  the fact that they used the the the [TS]

  Vomit Comet airplane in order to shoot [TS]

  some scenes an actual weightlessness and [TS]

  then seamlessly integrate them with with [TS]

  stuff shot on the ground they remade all [TS]

  of the interiors of the Apollo space [TS]

  capsules and and managed to tell a [TS]

  really exciting story with some great [TS]

  human elements and it [TS]

  it's actually it also has a nice score [TS]

  as well I'm just a big i love this movie [TS]

  this is one of those comfort food movies [TS]

  for me I just I i think it's a there are [TS]

  so many things that you think of well [TS]

  what if they made a movie of this they'd [TS]

  probably screw it up and Apollo 13 is a [TS]

  fantastic story and they made the movie [TS]

  and they didn't screw it up and they [TS]

  never need to make that story tell that [TS]

  story again because they got it and they [TS]

  got it right and and having Tom Hanks at [TS]

  the center in one of his better [TS]

  performances as Jim level is a it was a [TS]

  good choice too so I'm gonna I'm gonna [TS]

  go with 2012 [TS]

  yeah the remake yeah good god Apollo 14 [TS]

  and 15 behind ya sequel the real in part [TS]

  down [TS]

  i I just I i love this movie it's great [TS]

  and it actually has a nice message at [TS]

  the end that I think about every now and [TS]

  then when they cancel some other part of [TS]

  the space program which is Jim Lovell [TS]

  looking up at the sky saying I guess [TS]

  we'll go back someday but who will those [TS]

  people be a pimp and we still have no [TS]

  idea [TS]

  yes so anyway Paul 13 ok last round [TS]

  clenched i'm going low brow i'm going [TS]

  low brow well that'll be a first frost [TS]

  shut up so what is all this is a French [TS]

  period we got Jerry Lewis you know [TS]

  German this samurai from the dawn of [TS]

  time we came moving silently down [TS]

  through the centuries living many secret [TS]

  lives struggling to reach the time of [TS]

  the gathering when the few who remain [TS]

  will battle to the last high lamb i [TS]

  highlighted to eat healthy holiday three [TS]

  witches [TS]

  getting the sickening highlander I think [TS]

  that's the surprising pic possibly yes [TS]

  because a lot of people think of this as [TS]

  a cheesy film but it actually the first [TS]

  half to two-thirds of the movie have a [TS]

  lot of really remarkable cinematography [TS]

  it's very funny [TS]

  it's got a great villain I want the [TS]

  highlander for the cinematography I [TS]

  watched my relationship and you should [TS]

  go back and watch the movie and see how [TS]

  actually enjoyable is it's very clever [TS]

  it's a very funny clever film crystal [TS]

  bearers great [TS]

  who's the current legalities the keurig [TS]

  on the giant it's a clancy brown and see [TS]

  Brown is the the plays equal parts [TS]

  villains and heroes and villains he's [TS]

  great and it's got Sean Connery doing [TS]

  the worst Scott Spanish accent ever [TS]

  received only the actual Scottish person [TS]

  in a movie about Scottish people and he [TS]

  plays in Egyptian almost Egyptian who by [TS]

  way of spain i think yes um it's it's a [TS]

  it's a really cheesy movie in some ways [TS]

  but i have to say it is one of us [TS]

  enjoyable things I watched it many many [TS]

  times when I was younger and more [TS]

  susceptible to certain influences and [TS]

  urban nature and it's a great movie [TS]

  I your head comes away from your neck [TS]

  it's over [TS]

  that's right that can be only one that's [TS]

  great film enjoyed it go okay Scott your [TS]

  last pic my last pic is a an animated [TS]

  movie that I love dearly the iron giant [TS]

  oh my god is great movie and the iron [TS]

  giant has a good message has a giant [TS]

  robot or Garth it has a point in Hogan's [TS]

  which is a fantastic name voice of Vin [TS]

  Diesel yes it has [TS]

  that's true voice of every family does [TS]

  not just he doesn't have to say much [TS]

  it's about it was born to play a robust [TS]

  it's true and animated rough you know it [TS]

  has a good message that you can overcome [TS]

  your not destined to either your destiny [TS]

  isn't set new self-sacrifice you know [TS]

  everybody and don't trust the government [TS]

  yeah it's all very good messages i agree [TS]

  and we we discuss that a little bit in [TS]

  the kids movie podcast was one of my pic [TS]

  so i endorse it [TS]

  excellent i love that Steve all right [TS]

  well I was leaning snow white and the [TS]

  seven dwarfs I [TS]

  because it's so groundbreaking but [TS]

  instead i think i'll snap back in the [TS]

  other direction for another [TS]

  groundbreaking film which was my first [TS]

  x-rated movie although not my favorite [TS]

  as it happens I was filming spot one of [TS]

  my favorite film genres the zombie film [TS]

  i'm speaking of George Romero's dawn of [TS]

  the dead still one of the best of its [TS]

  kind night of the living dead is great [TS]

  too but this is this is really where the [TS]

  film the zombie film really came [TS]

  together and you get everything and get [TS]

  your fast-paced action sequences get you [TS]

  nowhere slowly mounting existential [TS]

  dread there's some some great gallows [TS]

  humor penas over-the-top core from tom [TS]

  savini and even some touchingly sad [TS]

  moments and of course George Romero's [TS]

  ham-handed patented social commentary [TS]

  although it this was early on in the [TS]

  genre and it really hadn't gotten tired [TS]

  yet so it's not quite so bad I could [TS]

  cast characters good development you [TS]

  actually give a crap about the heroes at [TS]

  the end i find it so it's a horror film [TS]

  that makes you think and feel even as it [TS]

  makes you barf [TS]

  so I've i picked on of the Dead [TS]

  excellent that will be the last that [TS]

  will be the pinnacle that will be your [TS]

  last one that will be a midnight [TS]

  screening that's right maybe we'll do it [TS]

  right now ready uh-huh and John syracuse [TS]

  what's your last election [TS]

  I'm gonna pull a rap sheet here and say [TS]

  that i was going to pick breaking away [TS]

  which is a great coming-of-age story [TS]

  that kind of made me feel like all other [TS]

  coming-of-age story movies for lying to [TS]

  me but i will not pick that that will be [TS]

  in the alternate slot in case one of the [TS]

  other movies get sick or injured i'm [TS]

  going to select at the game at which is [TS]

  about for a film by david fincher and [TS]

  how stays Michael Taylor David Fincher [TS]

  movie believe it or not I it's a very [TS]

  very quiet movie very calm [TS]

  not a lot of you know action excitement [TS]

  blaring soundtrack gunfire I don't know [TS]

  what you call it would you call it a [TS]

  thinker [TS]

  it's it's got a certain kind of pacing [TS]

  and suspense that you just don't see [TS]

  movies these days because it's not [TS]

  exciting enough and I don't think it did [TS]

  particularly well the box office because [TS]

  of it [TS]

  it's got a its got a small cast what a [TS]

  great cast michael douglas in the real [TS]

  the lead role sean penn as his brother [TS]

  and a bunch of other characters mixed in [TS]

  there and if you have not seen the game [TS]

  which a lot of people have not seen it [TS]

  it's not going to be one of the movies [TS]

  the changes your life but it is an [TS]

  excellent movie so it's not one of those [TS]

  things like a rainy day nobody around at [TS]

  home by yourself just pop this thing in [TS]

  and disappear for a couple hours [TS]

  that's what she said alright I don't [TS]

  spoil it for anybody who hasn't seen it [TS]

  all right i have not 17 here it's [TS]

  alright will do not better than anyone [TS]

  has seen it please don't say anything [TS]

  you've got another instrument treat [TS]

  coast [TS]

  uh-huh yeah first of all is done sorry I [TS]

  damn yeah I'm gonna throw off most of my [TS]

  previous ones go for a comedy that final [TS]

  one of my favorite what yeah I know I've [TS]

  been a little heavier do [TS]

  I'm do yeah it goes great with Lawrence [TS]

  of Arabia no one of my favorite comedies [TS]

  of all time and that's the john cusack [TS]

  vehicle grosse point blank [TS]

  Oh dark a dark comedy about I hate I [TS]

  don't support that [TS]

  yes it's a great one of my favorite [TS]

  movies a great you know John Cusack was [TS]

  a hit man who is kind of at loose ends [TS]

  with his life doesn't really know what [TS]

  he's doing so he decides to go to his [TS]

  high-school reunion and you kind of get [TS]

  the idea if you you know watched you [TS]

  know earlier John Cusack works from the [TS]

  eighties this is this was a 96 movie i [TS]

  believe that this is kind of what 97 is [TS]

  my thanks sorry since I think they're [TS]

  the class of eighty-seven remember [TS]

  standing army also you get the idea that [TS]

  this is maybe what his say anything [TS]

  character Lloyd Dobler might end up [TS]

  being if you know lost the girl and [TS]

  decided he had to go back in [TS]

  what are you doing this vehicle [TS]

  professional killer killing you get [TS]

  dental with that yeah if you graduate [TS]

  work you can just jump right in and [TS]

  great great performance by bike you Zach [TS]

  one of the better performances by minnie [TS]

  driver you alan arkin again shows up an [TS]

  Android as American winded okay great [TS]

  meeting recently grocery shop cord and a [TS]

  host of other good little characters [TS]

  including four of the five Cusack plan [TS]

  yes in in minor roles in various places [TS]

  his sister joan cusack most notably yes [TS]

  wonderful as as his [TS]

  system only notable entire there are [TS]

  other Cusack's there are five of them [TS]

  and there are two more and music with [TS]

  you so this is what is their arteries [TS]

  and replace a dream place a drunken [TS]

  another one of the other ones plays a [TS]

  waiter i'm down to getting wine [TS]

  really I'm it's all about Jones epoque [TS]

  you zach is in the background best the [TS]

  best scene possibly well the best seen [TS]

  in the entire movie is where he goes to [TS]

  his home sweet home but it's been [TS]

  replaced with a second home again but i [TS]

  guess you can shop their place by 7-11 [TS]

  which is basically an ultimate art which [TS]

  is playing a music version of living [TS]

  like I yeah and the the slacker there is [TS]

  playing doom on the arcade machine well [TS]

  they're having a gunfight in the [TS]

  background yeah but perhaps the best buy [TS]

  on the entire movie is the the [TS]

  understated thank you for the pen [TS]

  yeah I did too jeremy piven no Jeremy [TS]

  know you know too well Carlos check on [TS]

  ok actually a bizarre little but yeah [TS]

  guys in a pan and use it to a [TS]

  superweapon yeah it's excellent [TS]

  excellent yeah have not seen it you are [TS]

  terribly missing a great movie a movie [TS]

  when a boy [TS]

  ok so best for last and I said I guess I [TS]

  said that Brothers Bloom was Mike on [TS]

  movie but this is also my con movie my [TS]

  my honorary comment using this am but I [TS]

  know that was a car i only said I was so [TS]

  this is that also the movie that made me [TS]

  want to become a film editor for a [TS]

  number of years and also applies to [TS]

  writing editing as well and that is [TS]

  Orson Welles is pseudo documentary f for [TS]

  fake which if you haven't seen it i [TS]

  highly highly highly recommend it [TS]

  because it is probably it is number what [TS]

  is it number number two number two on my [TS]

  all-time favorite movies list right [TS]

  underneath Empire and this is a [TS]

  fantastic documentary that claims to be [TS]

  about magic and about following [TS]

  ironically following Clifford Irving [TS]

  documenting a guy who [TS]

  does forgeries art forgeries who sells [TS]

  them for a for a nifty profit now the [TS]

  thing to know is that if you know the [TS]

  name Clifford Irving you'll know that he [TS]

  did the fake biography of Howard Hughes [TS]

  so it's fakery wrapped within fakery and [TS]

  the entire thing despite having a really [TS]

  really interesting story that kind of [TS]

  twists and turns and pulls you in every [TS]

  every angle and of course Orson Welles [TS]

  is the master to do that in which to do [TS]

  this I mean he put together war of the [TS]

  worlds which basically everybody you [TS]

  know everybody listening at the time [TS]

  when it was on the windows broadcast on [TS]

  the radio kind of got conned into [TS]

  thinking that it was a real Martians are [TS]

  landing on the earth broadcast it it has [TS]

  this really nice sort of back-and-forth [TS]

  switch change editing and the movie [TS]

  itself is just beautiful [TS]

  it's aight i cannot describe it and I [TS]

  urge everybody to go see if you have not [TS]

  no matter what your feelings are on [TS]

  Orson Welles because i guarantee you [TS]

  will leave this film thinking something [TS]

  great i've never heard of that film i [TS]

  will have to see it [TS]

  that's great hmm alright i guess i gotta [TS]

  close it up here that's what's your [TS]

  final pick Jason huh [TS]

  number 5i Idaho I've got a lot of [TS]

  choices here and i can just go with the [TS]

  one that's that that's the highest [TS]

  remaining on the board that i love you [TS]

  think of the poor or i could think of [TS]

  the poor people reproduce it through our [TS]

  our film festival and see if i want to [TS]

  give them something that isn't a comedy [TS]

  from the eighties which is strangely [TS]

  there are lots of those on my list so [TS]

  should I just should shouldn't do that [TS]

  in any other well no no your other ideas [TS]

  go together which I said only way heart [TS]

  go if you're the audience that's right [TS]

  embrace your industry inner siracusa [TS]

  wait a second one minor siracusa do well [TS]

  known for screwing the Ottomans and I [TS]

  don't know embrace them and find out you [TS]

  cross your you cross yourself you would [TS]

  like to make the selection that you [TS]

  really want to make I promised a mute [TS]

  the hope [TS]

  I actually just watch this movie again [TS]

  and i'm gonna i'm going to select it [TS]

  over some movies that i have ranked [TS]

  higher because i want to round out the I [TS]

  want to run out random selection and I [TS]

  think this movie is becoming appreciated [TS]

  as a classic but i'm going to give it a [TS]

  screening so people are reminded that it [TS]

  is a classic and it is Harold Ramos 'as [TS]

  groundhog day [TS]

  ah was honest that's good explanation is [TS]

  Groundhog Day a bill murray had we got [TS]

  to get bill murray in here again and [TS]

  rather than going to be watching [TS]

  groundhog day of Christmas now it's okay [TS]

  that's what I hear it's a holiday really [TS]

  after all [TS]

  groundhog day you know we have talked [TS]

  about it before and rather than go with [TS]

  the real genius Ghostbusters kind of [TS]

  obvious access I'm gonna I'm gonna take [TS]

  a different tack and say Groundhog Day a [TS]

  funny movie [TS]

  I a but also a very thought-provoking [TS]

  movie lots there to think about in terms [TS]

  of his repeating time and he he tries to [TS]

  take one approach with his days and that [TS]

  doesn't work where he tries to fake a [TS]

  good day with andie mcdowell who I'm an [TS]

  actress who I just like but who is [TS]

  acceptable in this movie and that [TS]

  doesn't work so that he'd become sad and [TS]

  he decides to kill himself and he does [TS]

  that for a while and that fails to and [TS]

  then he finally decides to improve [TS]

  himself and and the the I know the [TS]

  screenwriter is a Buddhist and it's got [TS]

  that sort of like kind of Buddhism thing [TS]

  to it which is fine and all but I i [TS]

  really appreciate just the broad strokes [TS]

  of a comedy that is is funny and that [TS]

  there are lots of very funny little tiny [TS]

  bits that you notice when you watch it [TS]

  multiple times because they are in this [TS]

  time loop but also it's a it's a it's a [TS]

  thought-provoking kind of movie so and [TS]

  it's a good performance from Bill Murray [TS]

  who essentially is playing a guy across [TS]

  one day but also like appeared probably [TS]

  thousands of years some time as the [TS]

  iterates through and becomes an expert [TS]

  piano player and learns everything about [TS]

  every single person in this little town [TS]

  in Pennsylvania so in the second [TS]

  appearance of harold ramis so yay for [TS]

  that [TS]

  yay yes yay for harold ramis [TS]

  two and and so and chris elliott is in [TS]

  that movie so and who knew Rahzel know [TS]

  who knew that chris elliott would make [TS]

  it into the film festival but areas my [TS]

  six choice cabin boy I don't have to [TS]

  wait for the next time alright he's now [TS]

  a cabin men so so there you go [TS]

  that and of course real genius will be [TS]

  on opening night when there's only one [TS]

  movie because I run the film festival [TS]

  that will be first but i'm sleeping [TS]

  setting up an alternate ok Ludovico [TS]

  technique applied to Syracuse in the [TS]

  front row e yeah we have reached we have [TS]

  the reach the end of the draft so I'm [TS]

  going to thank everybody and as i do [TS]
