00:00:47   come to my attention that it's time for [TS]

00:01:05   last year as detailed in three episodes [TS]

00:01:08   of the incomparable last year mostly [TS]

00:01:10   it's a legal thing the people whose [TS]

00:01:12   movies we showed said they never wanted [TS]

00:01:15   to be a part of our film festival again [TS]

00:01:16   never again so we have to move on and [TS]

00:01:19   because i know that so many of you want [TS]

00:01:22   to pick the same movies i've decided [TS]

00:01:24   that as with everything in American [TS]

00:01:27   society this would be improved if we did [TS]

00:01:30   it as a draft because fantasy football's [TS]

00:01:32   all the rage and the last time i went to [TS]

00:01:34   whole foods i'm pretty sure i got a [TS]

00:01:36   draft for pairs i'm not really sure how [TS]

00:01:37   that happened so i would like to thank [TS]

00:03:21   to kick us off [TS]

00:03:23   I indian taco you get to go first please [TS]

00:03:25   make your selection [TS]

00:03:26   well was a tough one because they're [TS]

00:03:29   only 71 movies have been made so now [TS]

00:03:32   we've actually picked more than like a [TS]

00:03:33   little bit less than half of them so but [TS]

00:03:35   I was surprised at 11 my really favorite [TS]

00:03:37   had not been picked yet it is what i [TS]

00:03:40   consider to be the best movie about a [TS]

00:03:43   tech geek about a nerd ever made it was [TS]

00:03:47   directed by francis ford coppola [TS]

00:03:48   released in 1974 it's called the [TS]

00:03:50   conversation and this is the student now [TS]

00:03:54   i'm not i'm not saying that the [TS]

00:03:56   stereotype of nerds who are really [TS]

00:03:59   really obsessed with technical [TS]

00:04:01   proficiency but not quite so comfortable [TS]

00:04:04   socializing i'm not saying that's a [TS]

00:04:06   pervasive thing but we all know enough [TS]

00:04:09   people out there that we could probably [TS]

00:04:10   come up with one or two examples of this [TS]

00:04:13   sort of person and gene hackman for god [TS]

00:04:16   sakes gene hackman he is always good [TS]

00:04:18   plays harry call who is an audio [TS]

00:04:21   engineer who is a used to work for [TS]

00:04:25   larger agency now is a private [TS]

00:04:28   contractor and at the opening of this [TS]

00:04:31   movie wonderful shot shot right in the [TS]

00:04:33   middle of San Francisco we see him at [TS]

00:04:35   his job where he is just an amazing [TS]

00:04:37   engineer he has been hired to try to [TS]

00:04:40   record a conversation between two people [TS]

00:04:42   who are aware that people are going to [TS]

00:04:44   be trying to record the conversation and [TS]

00:04:47   are trying to create a situation which [TS]

00:04:49   you cannot possibly get a recording of [TS]

00:04:51   what was going on and so this did this [TS]

00:04:53   incredibly dramatic choreography of [TS]

00:04:58   hidden microphones and people on the [TS]

00:04:59   ground [TS]

00:05:00   around and radio microphones he manages [TS]

00:05:02   to record this conversation but before [TS]

00:05:04   he delivers it [TS]

00:05:05   he's in his little lab is trying to [TS]

00:05:07   clean it up and figure out what people [TS]

00:05:08   are actually saying because you have to [TS]

00:05:10   do all that sort of stuff and in the [TS]

00:05:11   meantime he starts to kind of wonder why [TS]

00:05:14   then why was I hired to record this [TS]

00:05:16   conversation i bet if I keep trying to [TS]

00:05:18   figure out if i try to get more of this [TS]

00:05:20   conversation in the clear and I'll [TS]

00:05:22   understand exactly what's going on [TS]

00:05:24   meanwhile he's you get to see 1974 tech [TS]

00:05:28   world where it's several lots of streets [TS]

00:05:31   of San Francisco you get to see it [TS]

00:05:33   electronics trade show you get to see [TS]

00:05:36   this already sort of paranoid guy who [TS]

00:05:39   does not like interacting with people [TS]

00:05:40   finding lots of reasons why he doesn't [TS]

00:05:43   like interacting with people how he just [TS]

00:05:45   doesn't know how to get on with society [TS]

00:05:47   and on top of everything else you've got [TS]

00:05:50   John Cazale and in a supporting role [TS]

00:05:52   Cindy Williams you have Harrison Ford in [TS]

00:05:55   a supporting role for heaven's sake so [TS]

00:05:58   he's this is this was just right before [TS]

00:06:00   Star Wars what about turning this into a [TS]

00:06:03   15-minute screen on this one film it's a [TS]

00:06:06   really ritz it's not he is not the case [TS]

00:06:09   of this one this man being caught in the [TS]

00:06:11   net of intrigue and it turns into a [TS]

00:06:13   deadly foot chase of cat-and-mouse stuff [TS]

00:06:15   it really is what do you do when you [TS]

00:06:18   just have no interest or ability to [TS]

00:06:21   associate with the rest of humanity and [TS]

00:06:24   now you're sort of forced into that sort [TS]

00:06:26   of role where you're paranoid by Nature [TS]

00:06:29   normally that's all in your head but now [TS]

00:06:31   you're starting to suspect you have [TS]

00:06:32   reasons to be paranoid and also he has a [TS]

00:06:37   really cool lab he owns an entire [TS]

00:06:39   warehouse but his entire workshop is a [TS]

00:06:41   tiny wire cage off area with racks and [TS]

00:06:45   racks of Awesome analog equipment so a [TS]

00:06:49   top-to-bottom it's just such a fun show [TS]

00:06:51   and also it really is Gene Hackman doing [TS]

00:06:54   when those perfect gene hackman sort of [TS]

00:06:56   roles we get to be wrinkled and nervous [TS]

00:06:58   and frumpy and yet absolutely in command [TS]

00:07:02   of what he imagines to be the world he [TS]

00:07:03   listened and francis ford coppola [TS]

00:07:05   returns to our film festival after his [TS]

00:07:07   little of monster movies last time so [TS]

00:07:10   that's nice too [TS]

00:07:11   yes this was less less been attributable [TS]

00:07:13   doesn't this this is this is something I [TS]

00:07:15   i think we could do an entire I could do [TS]

00:07:17   an entire film festival i have a real [TS]

00:07:19   love the one sent to every director [TS]

00:07:23   every like no mega mega lo part of the [TS]

00:07:26   director like a Coppola they have that [TS]

00:07:28   screenplay that they wrote before they [TS]

00:07:30   hit it big and I couldn't get any [TS]

00:07:31   interest in and as soon as he becomes [TS]

00:07:33   the director of The Godfather the most [TS]

00:07:35   successful movie franchise the seventies [TS]

00:07:38   ever seen and now he has his screw you [TS]

00:07:41   contract saying oh yeah well now i'm [TS]

00:07:44   going here I'm going to make you make [TS]

00:07:45   this movie that you never said we could [TS]

00:07:47   ever get made and so he takes the script [TS]

00:07:50   of his back pocket the conversation [TS]

00:07:51   which he died i do think it's it's [TS]

00:07:54   credibly his best movie i don't think i [TS]

00:07:56   don't think that Apocalypse Now or The [TS]

00:07:58   Godfather movies are better than this is [TS]

00:08:00   just wonderful wonderful flick [TS]

00:08:02   that's good that movie is one of five [TS]

00:08:04   movies that John Cazale appears in and [TS]

00:08:06   they all got nominated for best picture [TS]

00:08:08   on a career [TS]

00:08:09   ya know it's exactly he he died at age [TS]

00:08:12   40 i think was it and you'd got he just [TS]

00:08:16   would have been one of those guys that [TS]

00:08:17   he was on the gene hackman track you [TS]

00:08:20   know where you figure that he would have [TS]

00:08:21   been 78 years old and coming up with a [TS]

00:08:23   great be a role in a great movie every [TS]

00:08:25   two years for the rest of his life [TS]

00:08:27   alright uh David Laura you're up well [TS]

00:08:31   you know i was looking at my DVD shelves [TS]

00:08:36   love and there's one that you know it's [TS]

00:08:41   maybe not the greatest film in the world [TS]

00:08:42   but it would be the first 1i would take [TS]

00:09:31   just fun it's intelligent and it you [TS]

00:09:36   know if it really gets inside writing [TS]

00:09:49   like oh yeah that's why I do this and [TS]

00:09:53   it's a lot of fun I mean it's kind of a [TS]

00:09:54   road trip where these three guys wind up [TS]

00:09:59   together with Michael Douglas's this [TS]

00:10:01   writer who has he wrote a brilliant [TS]

00:10:04   novel brilliant first novel and [TS]

00:10:07   everybody's been waiting for his [TS]

00:10:08   follow-up for years and years and [TS]

00:10:11   everyone figures he's had writer's block [TS]

00:10:12   all this time and it's no no I'm on page [TS]

00:10:16   twenty-two hundred and i'm still going [TS]

00:10:25   the end of it and Tobey Maguire's the [TS]

00:10:27   student of his [TS]

00:10:28   who is that next generation of of wonder [TS]

00:10:32   boy he's he's a fantastic writer and [TS]

00:10:36   Robert Downey jr. is the agent who [TS]

00:10:38   handles Michael Douglas's writing and is [TS]

00:10:41   kind of looking at this guy and going [TS]

00:10:43   hey I kind of like him and it's just [TS]

00:10:47   it's wonderful how all these different [TS]

00:10:49   stories intertwine and and just fully [TS]

00:10:53   dimensional characters coming even even [TS]

00:10:56   the smallest bit character is just a [TS]

00:11:00   fully dimensional person it's it's just [TS]

00:11:02   a wonderful movie and went but probably [TS]

00:11:06   my favorite thing about it when he was [TS]

00:11:10   trying to put together the music he was [TS]

00:11:11   picking very you know early to mid [TS]

00:11:13   seventies music and he pro2 Bob Dylan [TS]

00:11:16   and he said I would really like to use [TS]

00:11:19   some of your songs and the one said [TS]

00:11:21   we'll send me the film i'll take a look [TS]

00:11:22   at it [TS]

00:11:24   hey I was not allowed [TS]

00:11:27   yeah that's better i'm sorry but my [TS]

00:11:28   headphones cut out what did he say again [TS]

00:11:32   didn't lay and I said there where there [TS]

00:11:39   was a transformed so have others yes yes [TS]

00:11:43   go but he does often refer to himself by [TS]

00:11:46   name to explain is 20 yes so you know he [TS]

00:11:50   sends off the movie and doesn't hear [TS]

00:11:53   from dylan and doesn't hear from dylan [TS]

00:11:55   anything odd dammit can't use any of the [TS]

00:11:57   songs and he wakes up one morning goes [TS]

00:12:00   to his mailbox and there is this package [TS]

00:12:02   and there's Bob Dylan in his mailbox in [TS]

00:12:04   his mailbox [TS]

00:12:05   it was a package of three brand new [TS]

00:12:08   original songs written just for the [TS]

00:12:10   movie that's how much Dylan identified [TS]

00:12:12   with the characters in the story was [TS]

00:12:14   like how and then don't want an Oscar [TS]

00:12:16   for the for the song right but yes it's [TS]

00:12:20   just a lovely film my favorite but i [TS]

00:12:22   have a favorite line from that movie [TS]

00:12:23   it's the now that is a big trunk it all [TS]

00:12:27   the tufa suitcase a dead dog in a [TS]

00:12:29   garment bag almost perfectly joined [TS]

00:12:32   Michael Douglas character says that's [TS]

00:12:34   just what they used to say in the ads [TS]

00:12:35   all right Wonder Boys you Yusei better [TS]

00:12:41   than the novel fair enough i've actually [TS]

00:12:43   read that novel but I I love Michael [TS]

00:12:45   Chabon so it's but it's it's adapted by [TS]

00:12:47   the same writer who did six of the seven [TS]

00:12:50   harry know seven of the eight Harry [TS]

00:12:52   Potter films and the only harry potter [TS]

00:12:55   film that has a bad script is going he [TS]

00:12:57   didn't do and he streamlines this the [TS]

00:13:03   storyline in the book and just sort of [TS]

00:13:05   cuts out what I mean it I mean it's it [TS]

00:13:08   works in a novel it would never work in [TS]

00:13:10   a film and so he just sort of chops off [TS]

00:13:12   this one whole subplot and keeps it [TS]

00:13:14   going and you go [TS]

00:13:15   yeah right that's how you do it cool we [TS]

00:13:19   move on and it's steve lets his turn [TS]

00:13:22   oh it's me it's you alright i'm a stand [TS]

00:13:26   back male some strategy on You Man huh [TS]

00:13:28   if this is the master of the universe [TS]

00:13:30   movie i'm gonna be really upset if that [TS]

00:13:33   wasn't even originally a Masters of the [TS]

00:13:35   Universe screenplay right i mean right [TS]

00:13:37   on it was the adaptation was I think [TS]

00:13:39   pretty superb but yeah this time out i [TS]

00:13:42   I've decided I'm gonna [TS]

00:13:44   before go the highbrow pics from last [TS]

00:13:46   time out good [TS]

00:13:48   they were intended solely to make me [TS]

00:13:49   look cultured you know like a dawn of [TS]

00:13:51   the dead and the breakfast club someone [TS]

00:13:52   was reading me the list of movies we [TS]

00:14:11   broom closet i'm already in the beast or [TS]

00:14:13   so there were simply pattern a day so [TS]

00:14:16   yeah i decided i'm just going to choose [TS]

00:14:17   movies that I really enjoy which means [TS]

00:14:19   that i probably don't have much to worry [TS]

00:14:21   about as far as anybody else [TS]

00:14:22   sniping my movies but that's that I do [TS]

00:14:25   have one movie that other panelists are [TS]

00:14:27   likely to have on their list so I'm [TS]

00:14:29   going to get out of the way right up [TS]

00:14:30   front it is of course the classic Jerry [TS]

00:14:33   Lewis and clouds movie funny bones know [TS]

00:14:36   you can get you what you already are you [TS]

00:14:38   picked how could that be it was a Glen [TS]

00:14:40   fleischmann pic funny balls your [TS]

00:14:43   homework eat it like he sniped you in a [TS]

00:14:45   previous episode is gonna have to be the [TS]

00:14:47   day the clown cried and steps that is [TS]

00:14:49   the world wow oh that is a that's bad [TS]

00:14:52   news well then I'm just gonna have to go [TS]

00:14:54   with the Terminator then alright which [TS]

00:14:58   which is of course the true story of how [TS]

00:15:00   computers will eventually when [TS]

00:15:01   everything natural eventually well at [TS]

00:15:06   the time it was it was prescient now [TS]

00:15:07   it's it's just kind of obvious so [TS]

00:15:10   everybody knows the story in AI name [TS]

00:15:13   Skynet become self-aware and decides [TS]

00:15:15   that humans must be eliminated which is [TS]

00:15:16   what a is due [TS]

00:15:18   there's a human resistance that forms [TS]

00:15:21   and Skynet sends naked honors [TS]

00:15:24   Schwarzenegger back in time to pick off [TS]

00:15:27   the mother of the resistance leader [TS]

00:15:28   before said leader is born and then the [TS]

00:15:32   resistance in in response sends naked [TS]

00:15:35   Michael bien back to protect her and he [TS]

00:15:38   says come with me if you want to live [TS]

00:15:40   and then awesomeness ensues [TS]

00:15:41   oh yeah so yeah like the Terminator it's [TS]

00:15:45   it's action-packed it's a it's very [TS]

00:15:48   scary at times in fact I'd say it [TS]

00:15:50   qualifies as much as a horror movie as [TS]

00:15:52   it does sci-fi it's got not one but two [TS]

00:15:55   pretty convincing face [TS]

00:15:57   endings and drawn out for too long and I [TS]

00:16:01   i opened just spoil that for anybody i [TS]

00:16:03   always get it confused with short [TS]

00:16:05   circuit is it busy and I always get the [TS]

00:16:10   robot from short-circuit confused with [TS]

00:16:12   the robot from Space Camp short-circuit [TS]

00:16:14   robot is more like Wally it's shirt on [TS]

00:16:17   the five is alive [TS]

00:16:19   it's right that it so there's a there's [TS]

00:16:22   that the very clever time-travel [TS]

00:16:24   conundrum of a John Connor sending back [TS]

00:16:26   the man who would eventually become his [TS]

00:16:28   father that I really like right and for [TS]

00:16:31   better or worse it it made Arnold [TS]

00:16:33   Schwarzenegger as career i think for [TS]

00:16:35   better [TS]

00:16:35   some would say for worse but it's the [TS]

00:16:38   perfect role [TS]

00:16:39   hey what about color in the Barbarian he [TS]

00:16:41   was great in Conan but i don't think [TS]

00:16:42   that that was that big and tell it did [TS]

00:16:45   not apparently to an icon [TS]

00:16:47   he had like seven lines of dialogue in [TS]

00:16:49   Conan right it was the star it by 12 and [TS]

00:16:51   terminator so yes he's wrapping up and I [TS]

00:16:54   don't think that really took off until [TS]

00:16:55   until it was out on video or out on [TS]

00:16:57   cable and people started the word of [TS]

00:16:58   mouth started getting around I think [TS]

00:17:00   maybe five people saw it in the theater [TS]

00:17:01   and it's the perfect role for Arnold [TS]

00:17:04   because he barely asked to talk and when [TS]

00:17:06   he does you can kind of rationalize why [TS]

00:17:08   it sounds so stupid so a good good [TS]

00:17:12   vehicle for him [TS]

00:17:13   yeah i like that i like the look of this [TS]

00:17:17   movie because you after after seeing [TS]

00:17:19   Terminator 2 so many times it's charming [TS]

00:17:22   to go back and see a movie that's [TS]

00:17:23   definitely got a lower budget and it's [TS]

00:17:25   darker everything is a little a little [TS]

00:17:27   more kind of organic is more horror [TS]

00:17:29   movie ish and a lot with that budget to [TS]

00:17:32   Orson Hamilton looks totally different [TS]

00:17:34   and she's bigger yes you got the big [TS]

00:17:37   hair and she's just this kind of cute [TS]

00:17:39   girl running around who gets mixed up in [TS]

00:17:41   time travel adventures with killer [TS]

00:17:43   robots she's not all sinew and tough [TS]

00:17:45   yeah it's a hundred percent more bill [TS]

00:17:47   paxton as as a like a punk in that [TS]

00:17:51   person's right aren't very briefly [TS]

00:17:53   yeah what impressed me the most about [TS]

00:17:55   this movie is that normally if I'm if a [TS]

00:17:57   time travel movie doesn't work for me [TS]

00:17:59   all I'm thinking about is yet but none [TS]

00:18:00   of this matters because they can just [TS]

00:18:02   send another robot back in time before [TS]

00:18:04   the time when this robot Liz like that [TS]

00:18:06   Star Trek movie the first start tricking [TS]

00:18:10   the first thing we'll start trying out [TS]

00:18:11   generations was it yeah it's like okay [TS]

00:18:13   so you defeated the Borg and but that [TS]

00:18:15   doesn't matter because the border still [TS]

00:18:17   able to check that out well that time [TS]

00:18:20   travel thing didn't work but the fact [TS]

00:18:21   that like at no point was i even [TS]

00:18:23   thinking about the Terminator means that [TS]

00:18:24   uh oh good movie [TS]

00:18:26   yeah it is a good movie all right and [TS]

00:18:29   left [TS]

00:18:30   nice try Steve you actually picked a [TS]

00:18:32   good movie i know i'm sorry miss we [TS]

00:18:34   won't happen again I promise [TS]

00:18:35   it is so much some cookie trivia 20 yes [TS]

00:18:39   everybody already knows the Terminator I [TS]

00:18:40   don't have to talk endlessly about it so [TS]

00:18:42   i can tell you that apparently the [TS]

00:18:45   studio suggested oj simpson for the role [TS]

00:18:47   of the terminator [TS]

00:18:48   wow that would have been a very [TS]

00:18:51   different james cameron nixed it because [TS]

00:18:54   he didn't think that she would be [TS]

00:18:55   believable as a killer [TS]

00:18:56   so next the idea and apparently sting [TS]

00:19:00   was considered for the kyle reese role [TS]

00:19:02   and I will kill him I will [TS]

00:19:04   that's right so good it'll take six [TS]

00:19:07   hours [TS]

00:19:08   yeah of course a Harley guys and [TS]

00:19:11   eventually sued Cameron getting that [TS]

00:19:14   Cameron script off and outer limits [TS]

00:19:16   episode that he wrote which exposure [TS]

00:19:18   studio settled I guess Cameron was not [TS]

00:19:20   too pleased by it and so now he says [TS]

00:19:22   that Harlan Ellison is a parasite who [TS]

00:19:25   can kiss my ass believe is the exact [TS]

00:19:27   quote interesting from James Cameron [TS]

00:19:29   what you're saying somebody doesn't like [TS]

00:19:31   Harlan Ellison yeah shocking isn't it [TS]

00:19:33   got a limited ellison is not someone who [TS]

00:19:36   sues people without good reason [TS]

00:19:38   yeah yeah he enjoys it and he's a lot of [TS]

00:19:41   people but alright with the opposite i [TS]

00:19:44   love the credit is I want to credit [TS]

00:19:46   enjoying the in the video where it [TS]

00:19:48   basically is acknowledgement to the [TS]

00:19:51   works of Harlan Ellison it's like the [TS]

00:19:53   most technology [TS]

00:22:02   banished to some distant stage possibly [TS]

00:22:05   one of the last remaining drive-ins or [TS]

00:22:07   monday in the or okay well i'm assuming [TS]

00:22:10   it's a drive-in anyway even if it is on [TS]

00:22:12   monday that's why my first movie is [TS]

00:22:14   killing to kill again and excellent [TS]

00:22:18   South African kungfu epic from 1981 I [TS]

00:22:21   don't even know why I try anymore [TS]

00:22:23   okay this movie is a trial and ya know [TS]

00:22:27   that's that's little to explain all [TS]

00:22:30   right it's one of my favorite movies [TS]

00:22:32   this is absolutely true [TS]

00:22:33   it's sort of the sequel to a movie [TS]

00:22:35   called killer be killed [TS]

00:22:41   so you they had a movie called killer be [TS]

00:22:46   killed and it had a Nazi dwarf in it and [TS]

00:22:49   it was kind of weird and they made [TS]

00:22:51   another movie called killer diligent [TS]

00:22:53   hilton hill same lead actor with a [TS]

00:22:56   slightly different character I think [TS]

00:22:57   he's steve hunt in the first movie and [TS]

00:22:59   Steve chase the second movie today is [TS]

00:23:01   now the plot of this movie is pretty [TS]

00:23:04   standard same as enter the dragon or [TS]

00:23:06   gymkata or any number of other movies [TS]

00:23:08   where the hero has to infiltrate a [TS]

00:23:10   country and enter a karate tournament [TS]

00:23:12   right now that's what separates us from [TS]

00:23:15   Rambo yeah I'm really really excited [TS]

00:23:17   that used enter the dragon and judicata [TS]

00:23:19   in the same sense and there's a lot of [TS]

00:23:22   similarities but first he has together [TS]

00:23:24   his team and his team consists of a guy [TS]

00:23:27   named gorilla who is a huge black guy I [TS]

00:23:31   a guy named Justin silly who knows the [TS]

00:23:34   trailer park [TS]

00:23:35   Wow a guy named hot dog who is kind of [TS]

00:23:38   an out-of-shape guy with a shirt that [TS]

00:23:39   says hotdog the budget was not high [TS]

00:23:44   enough to get an actual hot dog when we [TS]

00:23:46   first meet hot dog he's playing a kind [TS]

00:23:48   of Russian roulette game with a bunch of [TS]

00:23:49   dumb guys in a warehouse where he loads [TS]

00:23:52   a pistol and flings it into the air and [TS]

00:23:54   then Atlanta ball shoots in random [TS]

00:23:56   directions later on a movie there will [TS]

00:23:59   be like three different bar fights were [TS]

00:24:00   hott Dogg will sidle up to an angry guy [TS]

00:24:02   take the guys figure out of his mouth [TS]

00:24:06   dip the lit end into a glass of whiskey [TS]

00:24:09   suck the whiskey off and it back the guy [TS]

00:24:12   and say hot dog and it makes no sense [TS]

00:24:14   and the final member of the team is the [TS]

00:24:17   fly who kicks everybody and is so [TS]

00:24:20   powerful with his feet that is such [TS]

00:24:22   control over the muscles of his feet [TS]

00:24:24   that he can just stand still and slide [TS]

00:24:27   sideways [TS]

00:24:29   that's a good power but here's the kid [TS]

00:24:32   here's a question for the sliding guy [TS]

00:24:33   did they use stop motion to that effect [TS]

00:24:35   in the movie [TS]

00:24:37   no it looks like because the camera only [TS]

00:24:39   goes up to about his knees [TS]

00:24:41   it looks like i was driving him [TS]

00:24:43   alongside ways and follow-up question is [TS]

00:24:46   he Jamiroquai [TS]

00:24:47   he is not he's a guy named Stan Schmidt [TS]

00:24:49   well I'm stumped [TS]

00:24:51   so the movies great makes no sense that [TS]

00:24:53   has paratrooper ninjas and it ends with [TS]

00:24:56   Steve chase having to fight a giant dude [TS]

00:24:58   with a mustache named the optimist his [TS]

00:25:01   moustache is named the optimist he [TS]

00:25:03   fought somebody using a mustache as a [TS]

00:25:04   weapon [TS]

00:25:05   holy cow that's the greatest martial [TS]

00:25:09   arts movie ever it is a great movie and [TS]

00:25:11   had some of the worst fake beard you [TS]

00:25:13   will ever see kill and kill again [TS]

00:25:16   south africa's finest movie of 1981 [TS]

00:25:19   South Africa's only movie in 1981 not [TS]

00:25:21   regret it I got it I got to take that [TS]

00:25:23   one off my list now cross diamonds [TS]

00:25:27   that's why I made with it i'll be [TS]

00:25:29   clearly good that's a value pick in the [TS]

00:25:31   first round I John siracusa it's your [TS]

00:25:35   turn the Godfather Part wanted to not [TS]

00:25:37   available [TS]

00:25:38   I'm beginning to question my [TS]

00:25:39   participation in this I'm also beginning [TS]

00:25:44   to question like when I was making this [TS]

00:25:45   list I couldn't remember what movies we [TS]

00:25:49   picked last time I know you sent us the [TS]

00:25:50   list and I said surely someone has [TS]

00:25:52   picked this movie in fact I think I [TS]

00:25:53   picked this movie so I kept obsessively [TS]

00:25:55   searching for it maybe I made a typo [TS]

00:25:57   maybe you made a typo but I don't think [TS]

00:25:59   it was picked maybe it maybe I've just [TS]

00:26:00   talked about it before but anyway my [TS]

00:26:02   first selection which I swear i've said [TS]

00:26:04   all the same things about before the top [TS]

00:26:07   but you'll tell me if that's the case is [TS]

00:26:09   my favorite steven soderbergh movie did [TS]

00:26:12   anyone know what it is yet [TS]

00:26:13   I talked about before it's out of sight [TS]

00:26:15   it's out of sight because that was gonna [TS]

00:26:16   be my first round pick so you did say [TS]

00:26:18   there was gonna be a second-round we are [TS]

00:26:20   into the quality movie portion yeah this [TS]

00:26:26   is my favorite same server movie and I [TS]

00:26:28   believe the last time i talked about it [TS]

00:26:29   i referred to this movie is peak Clooney [TS]

00:26:31   I think it is p Clooney particular kind [TS]

00:26:34   of cleaning anyway yes this is the rare [TS]

00:26:37   crime caper movie that also has like big [TS]

00:26:40   laughs but that doesn't pull its punches [TS]

00:26:42   and violence either i had a lot of [TS]

00:26:44   movies that are like that have sort of [TS]

00:26:46   you know black humor or kind of black [TS]

00:26:48   comedies this one somehow manages to be [TS]

00:26:50   like light-hearted good-natured humor [TS]

00:26:53   and terrible terrible violence both in [TS]

00:26:56   the same movie and not conflicting I [TS]

00:26:59   don't add [TS]

00:27:00   I've never seen a movie like this in [TS]

00:27:01   terms of mixture of elements and their [TS]

00:27:02   works as well as this does this movie is [TS]

00:27:05   probably also pick JLo i don't know that [TS]

00:27:08   i've seen a lot of general open yeah but [TS]

00:27:09   she's a celebrity supposedly at [TS]

00:27:12   everything that she's asked to do she [TS]

00:27:14   does well and that the one of the scenes [TS]

00:27:17   that stands out when they were the JLo [TS]

00:27:18   scenes for for obvious reasons but also [TS]

00:27:20   not obvious reasons is that the hotel [TS]

00:27:22   romance scene between her and George [TS]

00:27:24   Clooney I romance scenes in movies [TS]

00:27:26   especially like this tend to be kind of [TS]

00:27:28   like the raunchy or like cringe-inducing [TS]

00:27:30   where you watch them and you feel bad [TS]

00:27:32   for the actors you feel embarrassed for [TS]

00:27:33   the actors and for whatever reason this [TS]

00:27:36   scene maybe it's the way it's shot maybe [TS]

00:27:38   it's the music maybe it's the actress [TS]

00:27:40   maybe it's everything leading up to it I [TS]

00:27:42   I don't feel embarrassed for the actors [TS]

00:27:44   it's actually a romance seemed that that [TS]

00:27:47   is memorable like you think of you know [TS]

00:27:48   what a memorable scenes from remember [TS]

00:27:49   action scenes remember like a good line [TS]

00:27:51   from a comedy or something I remember [TS]

00:27:53   this romance scene it's not very long [TS]

00:27:54   it's not graphic I just think it's one [TS]

00:27:57   of the best done seen of that type that [TS]

00:28:00   I've seen and instead of instead of [TS]

00:28:02   feeling bad for them you kind of wish [TS]

00:28:03   you were there and I think that is a [TS]

00:28:04   very rare thing for for romance scenes [TS]

00:28:07   we saw out of sight if you haven't seen [TS]

00:28:08   it if you haven't heard of it if you [TS]

00:28:10   like George Clooney and crime stuff like [TS]

00:28:12   ocean's eleven or whatever I check it [TS]

00:28:15   out [TS]

00:28:15   best steven soderbergh movie ever yeah I [TS]

00:28:18   think you're right all right and great [TS]

00:28:20   great movie looks great [TS]

00:28:22   the tone is fantastic this is again in [TS]

00:28:25   Elmore Leonard this is a jlo explain [TS]

00:28:28   Karen Sisco right who's then Carla [TS]

00:28:30   cugino played in the tvs short-lived [TS]

00:28:32   excellent TV series of the same name and [TS]

00:28:35   that scene in the trunk of the car man [TS]

00:28:37   who great stuff kinda kinda almost had [TS]

00:28:41   her reprise that role unjustified which [TS]

00:28:43   is also an Elmore Leonard baby yepp show [TS]

00:28:45   which was kind of a nice touch [TS]

00:28:47   well she's she's Karen but she has [TS]

00:28:49   they've excused it is it's her married [TS]

00:28:51   last name right because they can't [TS]

00:28:53   officially use Karen Sisco because ABC [TS]

00:28:55   right now and it ran it into the ground [TS]

00:28:58   yeah yeah it's too bad John that's a [TS]

00:29:01   great pic and it was a time not kidding [TS]

00:29:02   actually on my list and I have to take [TS]

00:29:06   it off now so damn you [TS]

00:29:07   yep those my number two yeah [TS]

00:29:10   dan it's your turn hey my turn great [TS]

00:29:14   well I was trying to think of what sort [TS]

00:29:16   of tie these movies together and I think [TS]

00:29:17   the only thing I've really got is their [TS]

00:29:18   movies that I like so much that I feel [TS]

00:29:21   like you know if I meet someone in there [TS]

00:29:22   like you know I've never seen that movie [TS]

00:29:24   like we have to sit down and watch this [TS]

00:29:25   movie now and so my first pick in that [TS]

00:29:28   regard is I think a very topical movie [TS]

00:29:31   interestingly enough even though it is [TS]

00:29:33   over 20 years old now and that is the [TS]

00:29:38   1992 film sneakers we like Robert [TS]

00:29:42   Redford Sidney Poitier committee [TS]

00:29:46   Busfield dan Aykroyd great cast and it's [TS]

00:29:50   a fantastic movie I i love the sort of [TS]

00:29:52   techno thrillers but i love these spin [TS]

00:29:54   on this particular one which is that 799 [TS]

00:29:57   to it's about kind of at that point [TS]

00:30:00   aging Robert Redford and in the first [TS]

00:30:04   scene of the movie where they're [TS]

00:30:05   basically it's this company is hired to [TS]

00:30:07   break into other companies and test [TS]

00:30:10   their security there's a scene where [TS]

00:30:11   Robert Redford tries to jump over like a [TS]

00:30:14   bank counter and falls off of it which [TS]

00:30:18   is just like pretty much just sets up [TS]

00:30:19   the movie right there was like these [TS]

00:30:21   guys are not very slick or anything like [TS]

00:30:22   that like they're really smart and they [TS]

00:30:23   know their stuff but you know they're [TS]

00:30:25   not action heroes and it's one of those [TS]

00:30:27   movies that actually does really work in [TS]

00:30:29   terms of being cerebral and clever and [TS]

00:30:32   there's not a lot of like action in it [TS]

00:30:35   but it's but it's still very engaging [TS]

00:30:38   and entertaining movie to watch and to [TS]

00:30:39   me it's one of you know it's a super [TS]

00:30:41   quotable movie to write you know I think [TS]

00:30:44   there's you know even even people who [TS]

00:30:47   probably don't even haven't seen this [TS]

00:30:49   movie might have heard of like seatac [TS]

00:30:50   astronomy recommend see too many secrets [TS]

00:30:52   right like that's my lord there by me [TS]

00:30:56   but there's just so many other mean my [TS]

00:31:00   personal favorite character in the movie [TS]

00:31:02   i think is probably Whistler who is who [TS]

00:31:07   is blind but is really really good at [TS]

00:31:10   like start picking out audio stuffing [TS]

00:31:11   like he's got this whole like setup [TS]

00:31:13   where he can remix up in one notable [TS]

00:31:14   seen reconfigures out they could be path [TS]

00:31:18   Robert Redford character character was [TS]

00:31:20   like kidnapped and taken down based on [TS]

00:31:22   like the seams in the concrete of the [TS]

00:31:23   bridge [TS]

00:31:24   that he goes across which is just it's [TS]

00:31:27   super clever like and you don't seem [TS]

00:31:28   like that kind of thought go into most [TS]

00:31:30   movies I feel like and because it deals [TS]

00:31:33   with encryption and the NSA which is you [TS]

00:31:37   know just a topic on everybody's mind [TS]

00:31:38   these days but they're in to my mind [TS]

00:31:40   there's nobody in this movie who is out [TS]

00:31:42   of place like the cast is excellent [TS]

00:31:46   it's really well-written it's funny but [TS]

00:31:49   it's also got it sort of dark moments i [TS]

00:31:50   love i will say the one thing which I [TS]

00:31:52   love although I admit it's also terrible [TS]

00:31:54   as ben kingsley as the sort of villain [TS]

00:31:56   his News New Jersey accent is kind of [TS]

00:31:59   hilarious to my mind I always always [TS]

00:32:00   hear my body [TS]

00:32:02   this would be a disaster terrible [TS]

00:32:06   terrible but still fun and I just you [TS]

00:32:09   know you even got like the underlings [TS]

00:32:11   played by Timothy Busfield mary jones [TS]

00:32:13   who are kind of jerks and punch Robert [TS]

00:32:15   Redford a bunch of times in the face [TS]

00:32:17   there's great scene where a climactic [TS]

00:32:19   scene in the movie with Robert Redford [TS]

00:32:20   has to go across a room but can't move [TS]

00:32:23   very fast because of the motion sensors [TS]

00:32:25   which is so great and like the tension [TS]

00:32:28   in that is so well done it doesn't need [TS]

00:32:30   to be like this huge long chase you're [TS]

00:32:32   just like watching like there's one that [TS]

00:32:34   some of the guys tells me like a little [TS]

00:32:35   Europeans like you better hurry up [TS]

00:32:36   because like I'm going as fast as I can [TS]

00:32:39   and I you know it's one of those movies [TS]

00:32:43   that in my head i just i quote you know [TS]

00:32:45   like all the time things come up that [TS]

00:32:47   you know and it's one of my favorite [TS]

00:32:50   favorite movies and if you haven't if [TS]

00:32:53   any of you haven't seen it [TS]

00:32:54   you're dead to me I love this wonderful [TS]

00:32:57   movie but i think the great thing about [TS]

00:32:59   it is that it's one of the few movies [TS]

00:33:00   that seems to get like hacking a hacker [TS]

00:33:03   call ya correct like to break into the [TS]

00:33:05   system see that's not scruffy guy give [TS]

00:33:08   me hot pockets and eight cases redbull [TS]

00:33:10   we're gonna start at dance by this [TS]

00:33:12   keyboard is like no we have to trick me [TS]

00:33:14   there's a voice password we have to [TS]

00:33:16   trick this guy to give it the recording [TS]

00:33:18   his voice right the social social [TS]

00:33:20   engineering [TS]

00:33:20   exactly yeah it comes across and you [TS]

00:33:22   know that's that's a big part of it too [TS]

00:33:25   this movie is one of the movies i [TS]

00:33:27   remember when I've seen a movie and I at [TS]

00:33:29   the end of it I say to myself or to all [TS]

00:33:32   those around me in the theater I shouted [TS]

00:33:34   at the screen and wave my fist around [TS]

00:33:36   why are there more [TS]

00:33:37   movies like this right then why aren't [TS]

00:33:38   there more movies like this in this [TS]

00:33:40   yes sneakers got cut it's kind of like [TS]

00:33:43   some of the seventies [TS]

00:33:46   yeah techno throws like three days [TS]

00:33:47   regional director exactly another [TS]

00:33:50   Redford another red room well i think [TS]

00:33:51   that's that's the direct link right and [TS]

00:33:53   then and there also there's also direct [TS]

00:33:55   link because he is also driving the same [TS]

00:33:57   karmann ghia Robert Redford as he drove [TS]

00:33:59   his characters drove in the three [TS]

00:34:01   dresses three days of the Condor [TS]

00:34:02   and-and-and wearing the same baseball [TS]

00:34:04   jacket he wore in the natural so he was [TS]

00:34:06   like Santa and budget assuring I think [TS]

00:34:09   so well really be almost kinda you can [TS]

00:34:11   almost kinda justify like and I was one [TS]

00:34:13   of those movies that's kind of feels [TS]

00:34:14   like an unofficial sequel in some way [TS]

00:34:16   yeah yeah yeah but it's it's a and [TS]

00:34:18   actually out of sight I have the same [TS]

00:34:19   thing which is like more movies like [TS]

00:34:21   this place [TS]

00:34:22   you know that's that's a good sign when [TS]

00:34:24   you're like why you aren't there more [TS]

00:34:25   like this this seems like do more like [TS]

00:34:27   this this is a good one also robert [TS]

00:34:29   redford scene with how do you break a [TS]

00:34:31   key keypad combination lock on my door [TS]

00:34:34   is just a thing of a thing of beauty [TS]

00:34:36   yeah sneakers is one of those movies [TS]

00:34:38   that does technology and did it [TS]

00:34:41   acknowledges that they're gonna have to [TS]

00:34:42   have some fake bogus crazy technology [TS]

00:34:44   thing like is there MacGuffin type thing [TS]

00:34:47   but the be reworded but but still never [TS]

00:34:50   manages like it doesn't annoy [TS]

00:34:52   technically it's basically like that's [TS]

00:34:53   that's difficult thing can you make a [TS]

00:34:54   movie about technology that doesn't [TS]

00:34:56   drive people who are knowledgeable in [TS]

00:34:58   the field bubble wall and one way to [TS]

00:35:00   just get every single thing right and be [TS]

00:35:02   realistic that's not what this movie [TS]

00:35:03   does this movie gets to be a fun [TS]

00:35:05   interesting movie and doesn't annoy with [TS]

00:35:08   the the fake technology right well [TS]

00:35:10   because they don't go too much into the [TS]

00:35:11   details they give you sort of the broad [TS]

00:35:13   strokes of something that is [TS]

00:35:14   theoretically possible right which is [TS]

00:35:18   that all encryption is really based on [TS]

00:35:19   the same idea and if you could figure [TS]

00:35:22   out a way to exploit that idea you could [TS]

00:35:24   you know figure out a way to break all [TS]

00:35:25   the encryption but at the same time you [TS]

00:35:27   don't really go into the nitty-gritty of [TS]

00:35:28   how that works [TS]

00:35:29   they don't start being a scriptwriters [TS]

00:35:30   today feel the need to go to the [TS]

00:35:32   internet and type forward into the into [TS]

00:35:34   a search box and get like synonyms and [TS]

00:35:36   they just start throwing words in there [TS]

00:35:37   remember when they discover the word [TS]

00:35:38   firewall it was all downhill out all [TS]

00:35:42   right then that's a great pic and it's [TS]

00:35:45   my turn to finish out the first round [TS]

00:35:47   yes we've only done the first round [TS]

00:35:49   because we [TS]

00:35:50   terrible people I'm going to actually [TS]

00:35:52   David said something that I thought was [TS]

00:35:53   really interesting about a one of my [TS]

00:35:56   favorite writers and a movie based on [TS]

00:35:58   one of his novels Wonderboys III one of [TS]

00:36:01   my other favorite writers is nick hornby [TS]

00:36:03   and I have a huge amount of affection [TS]

00:36:06   for the 2000ad application of his novel [TS]

00:36:10   high-fidelity starring John Cusack and [TS]

00:36:13   so I'm gonna pick it for my first-round [TS]

00:36:14   selection directed by stephen frears I [TS]

00:36:18   was so skeptical of a film adaptation of [TS]

00:36:20   the book high-fidelity I love that book [TS]

00:36:22   i think it is a wonderful encapsulation [TS]

00:36:26   of a lot of things about what it means [TS]

00:36:29   to be an incredibly shallow 20-something [TS]

00:36:33   man uh home and I always thought that it [TS]

00:36:38   was a very interesting maybe interesting [TS]

00:36:40   narrator this guy who's sort of trying [TS]

00:36:42   to reel sort of realizing that he needs [TS]

00:36:44   to move on with his life and grow up and [TS]

00:36:46   yet at the same time cannot get out of [TS]

00:36:48   his his obsessions and bad habits and [TS]

00:36:51   bad behavior that there's a lot of music [TS]

00:36:54   in the book lots of lists of songs and [TS]

00:36:57   references to pop music and also I felt [TS]

00:37:01   it was a really very very English book [TS]

00:37:02   lots of soccer references because nick [TS]

00:37:06   hornby is a huge soccer fan and I [TS]

00:37:09   thought there was no way that they could [TS]

00:37:11   translate this into a movie set in [TS]

00:37:12   Chicago starring John Cusack and you [TS]

00:37:14   know what I love it I love John Cusack [TS]

00:37:17   in it he plays he's he's likable in all [TS]

00:37:20   the ways you need them to be likable and [TS]

00:37:22   yet is also unlikable in all the ways [TS]

00:37:25   that character needs to be unlikable and [TS]

00:37:27   make bad decisions and be more [TS]

00:37:30   interested in himself than anybody else [TS]

00:37:32   jack black gives a really good [TS]

00:37:34   performance i would say other than [TS]

00:37:36   school of rock perhaps i think it's it's [TS]

00:37:40   maybe his best he is a incredibly [TS]

00:37:43   obnoxious awful record store clerk and [TS]

00:37:46   is perfect doing a stretch its treatment [TS]

00:37:48   fries that he could say perfect but then [TS]

00:37:51   he yes he sings at the end in a [TS]

00:37:53   wonderfully see that for the end you're [TS]

00:37:54   thinking that he's gonna be awful then [TS]

00:37:56   suddenly ever goes oh very divergent the [TS]

00:37:58   Uptown five you know instead of kathleen [TS]

00:38:01   turner overdrive [TS]

00:38:02   dr uh great great stuff there and they [TS]

00:38:05   they cast a Danish actress she's really [TS]

00:38:09   likable as this as his longtime [TS]

00:38:12   girlfriend and you know she leaves and [TS]

00:38:16   ends up with tim robbins in a [TS]

00:38:17   fantastically scuzzy annoying hateful [TS]

00:38:21   part get your patchouli stinker out of [TS]

00:38:23   my record store ah and and there are [TS]

00:38:27   some really nice moments in this movie [TS]

00:38:29   where john cusack actually speaks to the [TS]

00:38:31   camera and talks about as he's kind of [TS]

00:38:34   going through what it what the deal is [TS]

00:38:35   with his life and trying to figure out [TS]

00:38:37   how he screwed everything up including [TS]

00:38:39   my favorite thing in this movie probably [TS]

00:38:41   is how he also has always imagined his [TS]

00:38:43   funeral and the songs that are playing [TS]

00:38:46   you know a beautiful woman stands up at [TS]

00:38:49   the front of the UH of the of the chapel [TS]

00:38:51   and sings you're the best thing that [TS]

00:38:53   ever happened to me and he pauses but [TS]

00:38:54   who would that woman be and he realizes [TS]

00:38:56   there's not going to be anybody up at [TS]

00:38:58   his funeral because of the way he's [TS]

00:38:59   living his life in the way he treats the [TS]

00:39:01   women in his life and it's a wonderful [TS]

00:39:02   moment where that's like he grows up all [TS]

00:39:05   the sudden so I like it a lot it's funny [TS]

00:39:07   it's smart and it manages to actually [TS]

00:39:11   properly adapt a novel i love and not [TS]

00:39:13   screw it up so high fidelity there it is [TS]

00:39:17   it's good music into that they did a [TS]

00:39:18   good job with the music which is a must [TS]

00:41:24   Diamondback and Europe [TS]

00:41:26   well I have to I have to employ some [TS]

00:41:28   agility here fortunately I had like a [TS]

00:41:29   short list of like 10 movies to choose [TS]

00:41:32   from and given that we're supposed to be [TS]

00:41:34   programming a day of a film festival my [TS]

00:41:36   original the program was going to be was [TS]

00:41:40   was was going to be the conversation [TS]

00:41:42   three days of the Condor and then [TS]

00:41:43   sneakers [TS]

00:41:44   hello based on our trilogy but i have [TS]

00:41:47   but since i have given that the net with [TS]

00:41:50   Dennis Miller system with one out now [TS]

00:41:55   could be it could be a sucky hacker [TS]

00:41:56   movie trailer just follow follow the [TS]

00:41:59   conversation with enemy of the state [TS]

00:42:00   exam and a Faraday cage again at first I [TS]

00:42:05   get gene hackman doing one of those [TS]

00:42:06   uncredited sequels to the I was [TS]

00:42:09   definitely very call under another name [TS]

00:42:11   as the Savior reason that movie [TS]

00:42:13   yeah but I did okay but i did find [TS]

00:42:15   another another wolf full day program [TS]

00:42:17   three of three movies i'm switching to [TS]

00:42:20   now with my second movie pick which is [TS]

00:42:22   the taking of pelham 123 which has three [TS]

00:42:26   making access right I've started the [TS]

00:42:28   would the Goodwin the 1974 one but [TS]

00:42:31   processes that off the list [TS]

00:42:35   it's it's has a connection to the [TS]

00:42:38   conversation because it's a 1917 for [TS]

00:42:40   movie that is so totally set in New York [TS]

00:42:43   City so totally set with location [TS]

00:42:45   shooting in the city that that the story [TS]

00:42:48   takes place and so I have a sense that [TS]

00:42:51   this is a much better movie for us [TS]

00:42:53   watching it today than it would have [TS]

00:42:55   been in 1974 because it is the story of [TS]

00:42:59   it's a it's a it's a it's a thriller in [TS]

00:43:02   which people some armed men hijack a [TS]

00:43:06   subway train which is the dumbest thing [TS]

00:43:09   to hijack because it's sort of us can go [TS]

00:43:12   forward and backward so they can [TS]

00:43:14   probably they've got a 50-50 chance of [TS]

00:43:16   the cops are figuring out where you're [TS]

00:43:17   going with this thing so but that's but [TS]

00:43:20   that's part of like that the challenge [TS]

00:43:22   of the film where the transit cops try [TS]

00:43:24   to figure out what okay you have clearly [TS]

00:43:26   you have like 20 people hostage you have [TS]

00:43:28   machine guns you're promising to kill to [TS]

00:43:30   kill them off if we don't give you don't [TS]

00:43:32   get us if we don't give you a million [TS]

00:43:33   dollars in an hour we have no idea how [TS]

00:43:35   your plan to get out of here because [TS]

00:43:37   we're so totally going to bag your butt [TS]

00:43:39   but all right to keep you from two to [TS]

00:43:41   figure out what your next move is sure [TS]

00:43:42   here you know we will try to get you the [TS]

00:43:44   million dollars so with it has to really [TS]

00:43:47   great features that make it an awesome [TS]

00:43:49   movie [TS]

00:43:50   number one it doesn't follow what we've [TS]

00:43:53   seen so many thrillers of this type that [TS]

00:43:55   we sort of already know that it goes [TS]

00:43:57   beat for beat for beat for beat for beat [TS]

00:43:59   and maybe there can be two alternatives [TS]

00:44:02   for a couple different points in the [TS]

00:44:04   story but we pretty much know how this [TS]

00:44:06   plays out this does not follow that road [TS]

00:44:09   map at all so you really are feeling as [TS]

00:44:10   you're watching it that this story can [TS]

00:44:13   go anywhere you don't know what's going [TS]

00:44:14   to happen and the second part is this is [TS]

00:44:16   technically like an action-thriller in [TS]

00:44:19   which every person is a doughy [TS]

00:44:21   middle-aged character actor male [TS]

00:44:23   character actor Walter Matthau is your [TS]

00:44:25   action hero here and this was like the [TS]

00:44:28   last movie he did because the last the [TS]

00:44:30   movie action movie he did because he had [TS]

00:44:32   good quintuple bypass surgery like about [TS]

00:44:35   a week after shooting stopped so you got [TS]

00:44:37   Walter Matthau being Walton a fall [TS]

00:44:40   throughout this and [TS]

00:44:41   I a movie and it's an effort not only [TS]

00:44:43   that but every single character actor [TS]

00:44:46   you can name that is like again Joey [TS]

00:44:47   middle-aged white guy from the seventies [TS]

00:44:49   Jerry Stiller is a cop and that and [TS]

00:44:53   that's been with the character of of all [TS]

00:44:56   the people in this movie the end the [TS]

00:44:58   last really great thing about it is that [TS]

00:44:59   i love these stories that are sort of [TS]

00:45:02   that of course are set before the [TS]

00:45:04   internet before computing power and [TS]

00:45:07   there it at some point Walter Matthau [TS]

00:45:09   gets this idea that oh well that's it [TS]

00:45:11   well we gotta figure out what if they're [TS]

00:45:13   doing this they must have a person with [TS]

00:45:15   a specific kind of expertise call the [TS]

00:45:17   computer center get me a list of [TS]

00:45:18   everybody who matches this like list of [TS]

00:45:20   qualifications and it's like all right [TS]

00:45:22   do we should have the answer about 19 [TS]

00:45:24   hours because we have to send people [TS]

00:45:25   with punch cards and put tapes onto [TS]

00:45:28   under reels and stuff like that so this [TS]

00:45:30   is this is a movie in which the most [TS]

00:45:32   important the only really big piece of [TS]

00:45:35   technology is a huge motorola [TS]

00:45:36   walkie-talkie and but it's still a [TS]

00:45:39   really compelling movies it's one of my [TS]

00:45:41   favorites and it's like I forget all [TS]

00:45:43   about it until it turns up on turner [TS]

00:45:44   classic movies and then I coat tell [TS]

00:45:47   pelham 123 I can see this click I'm done [TS]

00:45:49   for the first night I haven't seen it [TS]

00:45:51   i'm gonna put on my list [TS]

00:45:52   we're going to the movie that's right [TS]

00:45:54   thumbs up I excellent i like those I [TS]

00:45:56   like those good movies so I watch it [TS]

00:45:58   David your turn alright having crossed [TS]

00:46:01   off out of sight in Pelham one two whole [TS]

00:46:03   the draft [TS]

00:46:07   shut your mouth just talk about right [TS]

00:46:13   about the draft [TS]

00:46:14   what's the uncomfortable premise that's [TS]

00:46:16   getting a little tired and people might [TS]

00:46:18   be seeking damn right I can do and we [TS]

00:46:25   all just go home located idea but we [TS]

00:46:29   really simplify the hell out of it [TS]

00:46:32   that's right let's not break Jason again [TS]

00:46:34   we just got them fixed from the last [TS]

00:46:36   it's not a snake draft alright go ahead [TS]

00:46:39   David but ok for my second pic I'm going [TS]

00:46:43   to take the royal tenenbaums which is a [TS]

00:46:47   wes anderson film it was his guess was [TS]

00:46:50   his follow-up to Rushmore [TS]

00:46:51   yeah and you know people talk about [TS]

00:46:56   Rushmore they talk about Moonrise [TS]

00:46:57   Kingdom now which I also really really [TS]

00:47:00   love but the run tenenbaums just creates [TS]

00:47:05   a world and it sticks to it and it is [TS]

00:47:08   this fantasy New York that you know the [TS]

00:47:12   they go to the 375th street y which you [TS]

00:47:16   know but it's it's this wonderful [TS]

00:47:18   portrait of a family of genius children [TS]

00:47:23   who failed to live up to their potential [TS]

00:47:25   and you have gene hackman again again as [TS]

00:47:31   the patriarch the near near do L [TS]

00:47:34   patriarch royal tenenbaum and Angelica [TS]

00:47:37   Huston is his estranged wife and danny [TS]

00:47:40   glover as the man who is courting [TS]

00:47:42   Angelica i have been stiller and Gwyneth [TS]

00:47:46   Paltrow and owen wilson and luke wilson [TS]

00:47:50   all the actors who appear in all of West [TS]

00:47:53   Edison's movies are ya [TS]

00:47:55   and of course Bill Murray butt itches it [TS]

00:48:00   just creates such a wonderful world and [TS]

00:48:02   again with all these intertwining [TS]

00:48:03   stories that all come together and sort [TS]

00:48:07   of focus on what do you do when you grow [TS]

00:48:10   up as a prodigy who just didn't make it [TS]

00:48:13   and it since it's just a lovely story [TS]

00:48:18   alright I I didn't love i really like [TS]

00:48:20   Rushmore and Russia I was sort of let [TS]

00:48:22   down by royal tenenbaums but that's ok [TS]

00:48:24   people love I find hate toward west [TS]

00:48:27   anderson fascinating because he seems [TS]

00:48:28   his movie seemed to do what they say on [TS]

00:48:30   the tin and if you don't like one of his [TS]

00:48:32   movies I think you maybe don't like his [TS]

00:48:34   movies because he does his thing [TS]

00:48:37   it's you know you're all of a kind [TS]

00:48:39   they're all kind of unrealistic and [TS]

00:48:40   heightened and even a fantastic mr fox [TS]

00:48:43   is so clearly west and yeah and i like [TS]

00:48:45   that 10 yeah he's obviously doing [TS]

00:48:47   whatever he's doing on purpose [TS]

00:48:49   this is yes it's not present but it's [TS]

00:48:52   really neat because fantastic mr fox is [TS]

00:48:54   an actual children's book and royal [TS]

00:48:57   tenenbaums has the feel of a children's [TS]

00:49:00   book you know it has that sort of [TS]

00:49:01   fantasy world that are built [TS]

00:49:04   and you know my kids love fantastic mr [TS]

00:49:06   fox and they've started watching the [TS]

00:49:07   other ones i haven't seen Moonrise [TS]

00:49:09   Kingdom but my wife saw it and she said [TS]

00:49:10   it was actually very good to something [TS]

00:49:12   like that yeah i still think Rushmore is [TS]

00:49:14   is his best but I liked Moonrise Kingdom [TS]

00:49:16   a lot yeah moon rises because maybe as [TS]

00:49:18   most mature oddly enough [TS]

00:49:21   yeah ironic because it's my children and [TS]

00:49:23   moonrise brings them closer to his [TS]

00:49:25   ultimate career goal which is to create [TS]

00:49:27   a film in which you can cut the negative [TS]

00:49:28   down the middle and distributes two [TS]

00:49:30   halves and then just duplicate the haps [TS]

00:49:32   the movie will be exactly the same [TS]

00:49:33   huh he's very he's getting very close [TS]

00:49:36   I haven't seen racing them yet that's a [TS]

00:49:38   little bit like saying I haven't seen [TS]

00:49:39   evil dead two yet [TS]

00:49:40   does that mean you will see it [TS]

00:49:41   eventually sorry I'm doing facility [TS]

00:49:43   that's a good 1i Steve it's your turn [TS]

00:49:47   yay i'm going to take 1980 tues [TS]

00:49:50   poltergeist 1982 horror film in here [TS]

00:49:54   it's the it's the steven spielberg [TS]

00:49:55   horror movie that's not about sharks [TS]

00:49:57   produced and written by spielberg [TS]

00:49:59   possibly directed by tobe hooper [TS]

00:50:02   probably mostly by spielberg there's [TS]

00:50:04   some controversy with a bloodless let's [TS]

00:50:06   just say that her a lot of wide-eyed [TS]

00:50:08   reaction shots which of course to tobe [TS]

00:50:11   hooper's very well known for but in [TS]

00:50:14   texas chainsaw massacre [TS]

00:50:15   yeah when I first when i first saw [TS]

00:50:17   poltergeist I thought it was probably [TS]

00:50:19   the scariest movie i've ever seen [TS]

00:50:21   although some of that is probably down [TS]

00:50:23   to the way I first saw it I was would [TS]

00:50:25   say about 11 or 12 years old alone in my [TS]

00:50:28   parents house they were out for the [TS]

00:50:30   evening every sliding door in the house [TS]

00:50:32   was open because it's been a hot day [TS]

00:50:33   every light but the one in the living [TS]

00:50:34   room is off haha I yeah my parents house [TS]

00:50:38   was kind of long one of your neighbors [TS]

00:50:40   was was had gotten a side of beef and [TS]

00:50:42   was had a big knife and was chopping it [TS]

00:50:44   up into little pieces and the trees it [TS]

00:50:47   was the trees outside the windows right [TS]

00:50:49   even with us [TS]

00:50:50   yeah yeah and read let you know is that [TS]

00:50:53   i lived in a house it was kind of freaky [TS]

00:50:55   anyway I just redlands in general is [TS]

00:50:56   sort of semi well known for having a lot [TS]

00:50:59   of ghostly activity in fact they [TS]

00:51:02   actually mention it in this movie which [TS]

00:51:04   kind of ya heard me a little bit too [TS]

00:51:07   would think so yeah I think I think why [TS]

00:51:11   it's so effective is because it hits on [TS]

00:51:13   nearly every childhood fear you get the [TS]

00:51:17   spooky tree outside that the creepy ass [TS]

00:51:20   clown doll which as far as I'm concerned [TS]

00:51:22   is reason for CPS to get involved who [TS]

00:51:24   would buy that for their children who [TS]

00:51:27   puts that in their child's room and [TS]

00:51:29   expects them to to have a normal life [TS]

00:51:31   yeah the monster in the closet you got [TS]

00:51:35   the great nightmare scenario where [TS]

00:51:36   jobeth williams is trapped in the muddy [TS]

00:51:38   pool with a bunch of bobbing grinning [TS]

00:51:41   skeletons and then she nearly closed our [TS]

00:51:43   way out and then slips and slides right [TS]

00:51:45   back into the pool so it's just it's [TS]

00:51:48   really effective at kind of hitting the [TS]

00:51:51   primal fears that you had when you were [TS]

00:51:52   ten years old or eight years old and [TS]

00:51:55   since I was about 10 or 11 when I was [TS]

00:51:57   watching it did a pretty good job on me [TS]

00:51:59   but I rewatched this last night for the [TS]

00:52:01   first time in quite awhile and well I [TS]

00:52:04   think it's still pretty effective on [TS]

00:52:05   that sort of childhood fear level now [TS]

00:52:07   that I'm a parent is taken on this whole [TS]

00:52:09   different flavor because in addition to [TS]

00:52:11   all those childish fears i now see it a [TS]

00:52:14   heaping helping of the very adult fear [TS]

00:52:16   of losing a child and you know when [TS]

00:52:19   Caroline sort of disappears into the [TS]

00:52:21   house [TS]

00:52:22   it's a really well acted movie I that [TS]

00:52:25   both cranky Nelson and jobeth williams [TS]

00:52:26   do a superb job of really kind of [TS]

00:52:28   putting out that their child is gone and [TS]

00:52:31   they don't know where they can hear [TS]

00:52:32   coming from the TV and they have no idea [TS]

00:52:35   what to do you know you you get this [TS]

00:52:39   this shot of cranky Nelson after some [TS]

00:52:41   time has passed after she's been sucked [TS]

00:52:43   into the closet he just looks like [TS]

00:52:44   absolute hell he clearly hasn't slept in [TS]

00:52:47   weeks but in the family are holding it [TS]

00:52:49   together just out of sheer love for each [TS]

00:52:51   other and trying to make sure the other [TS]

00:52:52   kids don't lose it it's really it's why [TS]

00:52:56   the sequel i think was so disappointing [TS]

00:52:57   because that film kind of turn the whole [TS]

00:52:59   family into a bunch of a-holes [TS]

00:53:02   but yeah it's it's good on a lot of [TS]

00:53:05   levels and very well paced very well [TS]

00:53:08   directed there's a terrific Lee haunting [TS]

00:53:10   main theme that Jerry Goldsmith did that [TS]

00:53:13   sticks in your head and oscar-nominated [TS]

00:53:16   hangs around your leave [TS]

00:53:18   alright I think so alright this movie [TS]

00:53:21   messed me up so much for the kid it so [TS]

00:53:24   much and I get it you came out of it [TS]

00:53:26   like you like horror movies now right [TS]

00:53:27   this movie terrified for most of my [TS]

00:53:30   childhood terrified me never want to see [TS]

00:53:32   her movies I don't have affection for [TS]

00:53:33   this movie I actually kind of hate it [TS]

00:53:35   because it is terrorized me [TS]

00:53:37   yeah I saw it actually already seen my [TS]

00:53:39   fair share of worst horror movies by [TS]

00:53:40   this point in terms of just being more [TS]

00:53:43   disturbing so no movie I ever see will [TS]

00:53:47   be a scary as poltergeist him it was to [TS]

00:53:49   me when I said yet I still think it's up [TS]

00:53:50   there and probably my top 5 of genuinely [TS]

00:53:52   scary horror movies so it's good stuff [TS]

00:53:55   alright that's a good pic and of course [TS]

00:53:57   I i look to you to provide us with some [TS]

00:53:59   more so I'm glad you did i do what i can [TS]

00:54:01   also over moving now I clear your mind [TS]

00:54:04   Jason and it knows what scares you [TS]

00:54:06   hmm Monty it's your turn let me tell you [TS]

00:54:08   about Miami connection that there's a [TS]

00:54:13   movie made in 1987 by a taekwondo [TS]

00:54:16   instructor listening [TS]

00:54:20   it's the story of a rock band composed [TS]

00:54:22   exclusively of orphans that mall no [TS]

00:54:25   Taekwondo and they are fighting a group [TS]

00:54:29   of ninjas that wrote it right around on [TS]

00:54:31   motorcycles selling cocaine now it does [TS]

00:54:34   not take place in Miami always called [TS]

00:54:36   miami connection it's actually in [TS]

00:54:37   orlando at the central florida [TS]

00:54:39   university most of the time nobody knows [TS]

00:54:42   why it's called miami connection my [TS]

00:54:44   guess is it's supposed to be a play on [TS]

00:54:46   the french connection with the cocaine [TS]

00:54:48   there's six people in this band two of [TS]

00:54:51   them were hired because they could act [TS]

00:54:53   two of them were hired because they [TS]

00:54:54   could do Taekwondo and two of them were [TS]

00:54:56   hired because they could look remotely [TS]

00:54:57   plausible holding musical instruments [TS]

00:54:59   the problem is that all six of them then [TS]

00:55:02   have to do all three of those things so [TS]

00:55:04   when they're being a band singing great [TS]

00:55:07   songs like against the ninja only two of [TS]

00:55:10   them look like they've ever seen a [TS]

00:55:12   guitar before and then when they're [TS]

00:55:14   acting [TS]

00:55:15   only two of them seem like they reverse [TS]

00:55:17   spoken before this movie was [TS]

00:55:19   rediscovered I think two years ago by [TS]

00:55:23   the drafthouse people in austin and it [TS]

00:55:26   is crazy they but apparently bought it [TS]

00:55:29   on ebay and then restored it because of [TS]

00:55:31   the area why do I know this movie [TS]

00:55:34   because you're mentioning announcing [TS]

00:55:35   scenes of it in my head I'm afraid I [TS]

00:55:37   might have seen his phone [TS]

00:55:38   well you might have seen it 1987 then it [TS]

00:55:42   vanished but the people who run the [TS]

00:55:44   alamo drafthouse in austin just by all [TS]

00:55:47   the film came they can get on ebay and [TS]

00:55:50   then they show them to people in austin [TS]

00:55:54   to an unsuspecting public just blind [TS]

00:55:56   like here's what we got in this can ban [TS]

00:55:59   but it wasn't terrified represent corn [TS]

00:56:01   know it's gonna be thinking probably [TS]

00:56:04   three things all the time i'm always [TS]

00:56:06   thinking 50-percent board you're right [TS]

00:56:07   this movie has about 10 minutes of [TS]

00:56:09   random toplessness because to fill out [TS]

00:56:12   the runtime its database to they went to [TS]

00:56:15   a biker rally and just got some footage [TS]

00:56:18   of a bunch of topless women ended up [TS]

00:56:21   wanting to do with the movie and [TS]

00:56:22   probably what might happen in Florida [TS]

00:56:25   nobody can tell so what's what what [TS]

00:56:27   happens what's the plot [TS]

00:56:28   ok so you've got this rock band the [TS]

00:56:31   orphan to know taekwondo right and [TS]

00:56:34   another band is angry that this band [TS]

00:56:38   took their spot at what is apparently [TS]

00:56:40   the only night club in orlando so the [TS]

00:56:44   band goes to the cocaine selling [TS]

00:56:47   motorcycle ninjas who are also run by [TS]

00:56:50   the brother of somebody in this band and [TS]

00:56:53   they say you gotta get this band out of [TS]

00:56:55   the way so there are a bunch of fights [TS]

00:56:57   with shockingly violent special-effects [TS]

00:57:00   a river literally red is red with blood [TS]

00:57:03   at one point that's pretty much the [TS]

00:57:05   whole plot all right I think I don't [TS]

00:57:07   think I'm glad we have at least one [TS]

00:57:10   person here who's taking this seriously [TS]

00:57:11   yeah listen I don't think the world [TS]

00:57:14   needs you guys to tell them did you know [TS]

00:58:24   ninety percent of the time that comes [TS]

00:58:26   out as unwatchable horrible wreck and [TS]

00:58:29   one percent of the time it's amazing [TS]

00:58:31   outsider art and that's what happened [TS]

00:58:33   here all right [TS]

00:58:35   this may be the film this time that I go [TS]

00:58:36   and watching and review yeah I may [TS]

00:58:38   actually later date need to me to see [TS]

00:58:40   this but this sounds like the sort of [TS]

00:58:41   movie we're like one of the questions [TS]

00:58:43   they asked every audition [TS]

00:58:45   every actor to the audition is do you or [TS]

00:58:47   anybody or any of your friends own a van [TS]

00:58:49   or motorcycle [TS]

00:58:51   are you a ninja or film equipment that's [TS]

00:58:53   entirely possible all the seams enough [TS]

00:58:56   notice they're all wearing shirts that [TS]

00:58:58   advertise what campus there are sure a [TS]

00:59:00   chance they got some funding college [TS]

00:59:03   yeah college too alright money that's [TS]

00:59:06   that's great that's hilarious [TS]

00:59:08   actually I'm i'm going to look up Miami [TS]

00:59:10   connection John circus it's your turn [TS]

00:59:12   this movie is from 1979 those 40 people [TS]

00:59:18   or people who are kids making something [TS]

00:59:20   that is called Breaking Away which I [TS]

00:59:23   hope everybody is fine but maybe [TS]

00:59:24   youngsters here Dan more have not seen [TS]

00:59:27   this movie I've seen the TV series know [TS]

00:59:31   I have described it as a shot Cassidy's [TS]

00:59:34   in its shaun cassidy gone [TS]

00:59:36   Rorschach a supporting role forgot so is [TS]

00:59:38   that all you need to know i would say [TS]

00:59:40   this movie is it it's a coming-of-age [TS]

00:59:41   movie that made other coming of age [TS]

00:59:44   movies seem like they were lying to at [TS]

00:59:46   least two like a seven-year-old me or [TS]

00:59:48   something [TS]

00:59:49   I the cast is pretty good like it's got [TS]

00:59:51   the dennis quaid daniel stern jackie [TS]

00:59:55   earle haley and a bunch of other [TS]

00:59:56   people's names I don't know they could [TS]

00:59:58   stuff the father guy [TS]

00:59:58   stuff the father guy [TS]

01:00:00   Paul doing yeah he's a lot of things [TS]

01:00:02   he's great in this he played wimpy and [TS]

01:00:04   Popeye that's not what is best known for [TS]

01:00:06   probably not and it's the whole movie [TS]

01:00:08   features like any kind of coming-of-age [TS]

01:00:10   movie coming agent for boys i would say [TS]

01:00:13   it features older kids this must be [TS]

01:00:15   older than the kids are watching it [TS]

01:00:16   slightly older doing dangerous things [TS]

01:00:19   that kids might conceivably do like they [TS]

01:00:22   drink alcohol they get into fights a [TS]

01:00:24   chase girls they ride bicycles behind [TS]

01:00:26   semi-trucks you know that they always [TS]

01:00:28   throw on the one extra one in there [TS]

01:00:29   that's outside the realm of reason but [TS]

01:00:30   when you're watching it as like a seven [TS]

01:00:32   or eight year old and I was just [TS]

01:00:33   completely wrapped in fascinated by this [TS]

01:00:35   and I think the later movies like The [TS]

01:00:37   Breakfast Club a little bit this movie [TS]

01:00:39   in terms of the way it starts you off [TS]

01:00:41   with a bunch of stereotype characters [TS]

01:00:42   we've got the you know the slacker guy [TS]

01:00:44   the the nerdy you know the geek [TS]

01:00:47   basically was into bicycling and the [TS]

01:00:50   quarterback from the football team and [TS]

01:00:52   over the course of the we break small [TS]

01:00:53   down to show you this actually real [TS]

01:00:54   people inside those stereotypes and I it [TS]

01:00:58   you know it's not a John Hughes movie I [TS]

01:01:00   think it's more raw more kind of 70s [TS]

01:01:02   then then John Hughes movie and it holds [TS]

01:01:05   a special place in my heart again [TS]

01:01:06   probably because of the age that I saw [TS]

01:01:07   that so if you if you have children who [TS]

01:01:09   are maybe a seven eight nine year old [TS]

01:01:12   boy I secretly get them to watch this [TS]

01:01:14   movie and I think it will still work [TS]

01:01:16   oh yeah I i can say living in indiana it [TS]

01:01:20   nails Indiana and it's fun to watch [TS]

01:01:23   because my wife went to Indiana [TS]

01:01:25   University for graduate school and they [TS]

01:01:28   shot the whole thing up here so it's fun [TS]

01:01:31   to kind of see it 20 years before i was [TS]

01:01:33   there no hey there's the Union they [TS]

01:01:36   didn't used to have that there [TS]

01:01:37   oh and if only the everybody in the [TS]

01:01:38   movie was wearing shirts with the name [TS]

01:01:39   of the University on it and there i [TS]

01:01:43   would like to see you in Miami [TS]

01:01:44   connection Breaking Away mashup that [TS]

01:01:45   would be something and a guy wearing a [TS]

01:01:47   t-shirt that says hot dog and the dog [TS]

01:01:50   that you're in every movie there [TS]

01:01:52   oh yeah all right except hotdog the [TS]

01:01:54   movie ironic because they didn't have [TS]

01:01:57   the budget for it [TS]

01:01:58   Breaking Away good excellent pic John [TS]

01:02:01   damn it's your turn [TS]

01:02:02   well i'm back with another favorite of [TS]

01:02:04   mine a movie that is loosely based on a [TS]

01:02:09   shock home story actually and that is [TS]

01:02:11   jake kasdan zero effect [TS]

01:02:13   which is an excellent movie from 1998 [TS]

01:02:17   that I've seen more times than I can [TS]

01:02:20   remember that basically involves the [TS]

01:02:21   story of a reclusive private I his one [TS]

01:02:25   friend and in a very strange move his [TS]

01:02:28   it's a ben stiller places assistant the [TS]

01:02:32   straight man in the movie which is [TS]

01:02:35   unusual for ben stiller and is the polar [TS]

01:02:38   opposite of what i think is stiller's [TS]

01:02:40   other best performance aside from this [TS]

01:02:41   movie which is Zoolander in which he [TS]

01:02:43   plays totally not a straight man but [TS]

01:02:47   zero effect is very very good it's it's [TS]

01:02:49   one of those lovely little like a cult [TS]

01:02:52   movies that is small in its aspiration [TS]

01:02:56   and it's setting it takes place in [TS]

01:02:58   portland oregon i belief and it's just [TS]

01:03:01   very it's a very tight [TS]

01:03:03   well plotted and not ostentatious movie [TS]

01:03:07   about this detective who is hired to [TS]

01:03:10   essentially deal with a a blackmailer [TS]

01:03:14   and it's bill pullman place the [TS]

01:03:18   detective who's kind of socially inept [TS]

01:03:21   and misanthropic and he essentially gets [TS]

01:03:26   hired by Ryan O'Neal who plays a a [TS]

01:03:28   businessman to figure out who's [TS]

01:03:31   blackmailing him and it has a couple [TS]

01:03:34   twists and turns along the way and some [TS]

01:03:35   lovely character work by Bill Pullman as [TS]

01:03:38   this shy totally out of it [TS]

01:03:40   detective and it's just it's just a [TS]

01:03:43   delightful very little movie you know [TS]

01:03:46   it's not all about boat huge set pieces [TS]

01:03:49   or what-have-you it's really just [TS]

01:03:51   focused on this character drama between [TS]

01:03:53   these these few characters but it's also [TS]

01:03:56   amazingly funny at times my favourite [TS]

01:03:59   bit from the film has to do with he's [TS]

01:04:01   writing his sort of his memoirs you know [TS]

01:04:04   about the art of detection and he has [TS]

01:04:07   this bit on finding things and it's when [TS]

01:04:10   you go looking for something specific [TS]

01:04:11   your chances of finding it are very bad [TS]

01:04:13   because of all the things in the world [TS]

01:04:15   you're only looking for one of them but [TS]

01:04:17   when you go looking for anything at all [TS]

01:04:18   your chances of finding it are very good [TS]

01:04:20   because of all the things the world [TS]

01:04:22   you're sure to find some of them [TS]

01:04:23   which i always think is a great it's [TS]

01:04:26   like when I when ya looking for your [TS]

01:04:29   keys so anyways it's a great movie lot [TS]

01:04:34   of fun small little waves totally I [TS]

01:04:37   think underrated when it came out but I [TS]

01:04:39   feel like it's a it's developed a nice [TS]

01:04:41   cult following so if you haven't seen it [TS]

01:04:43   it's well worth it [TS]

01:04:45   alright that's good zero effect they [TS]

01:04:47   would they did a TV pilot but they [TS]

01:04:48   didn't make it to the man [TS]

01:04:50   sadly all right i am up and I'm gonna go [TS]

01:04:53   with another movie beginning with Z so [TS]

01:04:58   thank you Dan sure it's from a a little [TS]

01:05:04   you have started smartest little [TS]

01:05:06   little-known meal and a little-known a [TS]

01:05:09   director writer director made this movie [TS]

01:05:14   in 1983 it's Zelig by Woody Allen I iron [TS]

01:05:20   i love Zelig I it's my favorite Woody [TS]

01:05:22   Allen movie and I like Woody Allen I [TS]

01:05:24   like a lot of his movies i could I mean [TS]

01:05:28   there there are lots of them that I love [TS]

01:05:29   actually but not live actually because [TS]

01:05:32   Richard Curtis made that Selig is [TS]

01:05:35   different in the sense that Zelig mean [TS]

01:05:38   Woody Allen for for a guy who sometimes [TS]

01:05:41   had that gives the impression that he [TS]

01:05:42   makes the same movie over and over again [TS]

01:05:44   he actually make some radically [TS]

01:05:45   different movies he has lots of kind of [TS]

01:05:47   magical realism and strange scenarios [TS]

01:05:49   and almost sci-fi elements in a lot of [TS]

01:05:52   his movies or fantasy elements is Ellie [TS]

01:05:54   has a little bit of that but it's also [TS]

01:05:55   told in mockumentary style which is [TS]

01:05:57   interesting there are special effects [TS]

01:05:59   that they had to do in order to you know [TS]

01:06:02   before Forrest Gump was made there was [TS]

01:06:04   le guerre where there was archival [TS]

01:06:06   footage that was integrated with very [TS]

01:06:08   cleverly with stuff from the actual the [TS]

01:06:11   actors in the actual movie and it's [TS]

01:06:13   telling the story of a man in letters [TS]

01:06:15   Ellie who's played by Woody Allen and he [TS]

01:06:18   is a nondescript nobody but he really [TS]

01:06:21   wants to fit in and he has this amazing [TS]

01:06:24   power to take on the characteristics of [TS]

01:06:26   whoever's around with him he is the [TS]

01:06:28   human chameleon and there are because [TS]

01:06:32   it's in this documentary and this is all [TS]

01:06:33   happening in the twenties there are all [TS]

01:06:35   of these interviews with [TS]

01:06:37   with famous people I that are in color [TS]

01:06:40   that are in the present day and then [TS]

01:06:42   there's this black and white archival [TS]

01:06:43   footage and it is ace it is in many ways [TS]

01:06:46   a silly kind of ridiculous movie but uh [TS]

01:06:48   it's got an interesting subject which is [TS]

01:06:51   somebody who just desperately wants to [TS]

01:06:53   fit in and will do anything you can to [TS]

01:06:56   fit in [TS]

01:06:57   it's funny mia farrow as good as the [TS]

01:07:00   psychiatrist who falls in love with the [TS]

01:07:02   changing man lots of great gags and end [TS]

01:07:07   you know a really good use of the [TS]

01:07:08   mockumentary format and then also [TS]

01:07:10   there's some some great kind of old [TS]

01:07:12   songs as well as some fake old songs [TS]

01:07:14   like the songs like do the chameleon and [TS]

01:07:18   and some great man in the street [TS]

01:07:19   interviews in the old black-and-white [TS]

01:07:22   style i remember the guy in this movie [TS]

01:07:24   who said i would like to be likely on [TS]

01:07:26   gel rig the changing man it's like oh ok [TS]

01:07:31   he didn't get his name right by whatever [TS]

01:07:33   it's a great yeah I like it a lot of my [TS]

01:07:35   favorite Woody Allen movies Zelig they [TS]

01:07:37   even got make it so i think to sing the [TS]

01:07:39   the chameleon song before the voice of [TS]

01:07:42   betty boop was still around there she [TS]

01:07:43   was analyzed when yeah she was also in [TS]

01:07:46   his new york stories vignette yeah the [TS]

01:07:50   greatest the greatest thing about this [TS]

01:07:51   movie though is that this was [TS]

01:07:52   pre-digital so everything had hinted to [TS]

01:07:54   put to put woody allen in the background [TS]

01:07:57   during an adolf hitler speech [TS]

01:07:59   how the hell'd you do that but it's [TS]

01:08:01   perfect you could not do better today [TS]

01:08:04   than you then he did in the early 80s [TS]

01:08:06   and I remember I remember reading in a [TS]

01:08:08   effects magazine about how it really was [TS]

01:08:10   all about having that kind of knowledge [TS]
