00:14:27   on that I I kind of heavy breathing I [TS]

00:14:32   kind of don't want to because I i got it [TS]

00:14:35   from netflix and was shocked to find [TS]

00:14:37   that there was a brief wait which means [TS]

00:14:41   that Glenn probably had it [TS]

00:14:43   that's the power of the incomparable a [TS]

00:14:45   tail end when you listen to this podcast [TS]

00:14:47   remember i'm barely on it so when you [TS]

00:14:49   kill everybody else [TS]

00:14:51   skip me if it could not have been the [TS]

00:14:55   uncomfortable because i actually I put [TS]

00:14:57   it on my cue prior to the airing of the [TS]

00:14:59   second half alright so they're just [TS]

00:15:01   there was consensus stay ahead of the [TS]

00:15:03   rush it was absolutely glad anyway once [TS]

00:15:06   he sent it back [TS]

00:15:07   it did arrive in the mail and and I was [TS]

00:15:10   really hoping that it was going to be [TS]

00:15:11   awful [TS]

00:15:12   yeah unfortunately I have to report they [TS]

00:15:15   were just going to have to tweak gland [TS]

00:15:16   on all the usual levels and leave funny [TS]

00:15:18   bones off because i actually thought it [TS]

00:15:20   was pretty good right [TS]

00:15:21   I was surprised i don't want to go into [TS]

00:15:23   too much detail about it because I think [TS]

00:15:24   part of the reason i enjoyed it so much [TS]

00:15:27   is it's very unique [TS]

00:15:29   I've never really quite seen another [TS]

00:15:30   film like it and and and i think part of [TS]

00:15:34   the joy of that was having not heard a [TS]

00:15:37   single thing about it and also the fact [TS]

00:15:39   that I expected it to be absolutely [TS]

00:15:40   awful yeah yeah I mean that even Glenn [TS]

00:15:43   all he could really say about it was [TS]

00:15:44   Jerry Lewis's in it and I'm an enemy's [TS]

00:15:48   film Jerry Lewis tells terrible jokes [TS]

00:15:50   huh [TS]

00:15:51   so and then I saw those guys think we [TS]

00:15:53   should from every other Jerry Lewis film [TS]

00:15:54   exactly that's the question right and [TS]

00:15:57   then I saw the the DVD cover which is [TS]

00:15:59   which adds to the sensation that it's a [TS]

00:16:03   complete stink bomb [TS]

00:16:04   I mean it's just I think Oliver Platt [TS]

00:16:05   walking in one way and Jerry Lewis [TS]

00:16:08   turned around walking the other way and [TS]

00:16:10   it looks it looks not so good but yeah I [TS]

00:16:15   watched it has the words Amy on it and [TS]

00:16:17   it wasn't really say me although it did [TS]

00:16:19   have clowns which if you're the type of [TS]

00:16:21   person that shiz from clouds as I am I [TS]

00:16:24   you know I i continue to watch it [TS]

00:16:27   because because I was just shocked I was [TS]

00:16:31   in shock [TS]

00:16:32   having witnessed the first clown and so [TS]

00:16:33   I watch the rest of the film unable to [TS]

00:16:35   actually turn the thing off but so it's [TS]

00:16:37   unique and pretty good [TS]

00:16:39   you said it was unique and a and not all [TS]

00:16:42   that funny [TS]

00:16:43   actually that's perhaps the one thing [TS]

00:16:45   that I that I can say that sort of [TS]

00:16:47   negative about it is it's it's sort of [TS]

00:16:50   like it reminds me a little bit of you [TS]

00:16:51   remember of studio 60 yes when when we [TS]

00:16:57   were repeatedly told that was a danny [TS]

00:17:00   trip to see the writer was the red can [TS]

00:17:04   tell [TS]

00:17:04   no matter Danny Danny is Magic Eraser [TS]

00:17:07   Matt ok sir we did we were told that he [TS]

00:17:09   is this you know super genius and he's [TS]

00:17:11   absolutely hilarious and then what we [TS]

00:17:12   get is what Gilbert and Sullivan cold [TS]

00:17:14   open [TS]

00:17:15   yes that that wasn't even funny for [TS]

00:17:18   Gilbert and Sullivan is just wasn't [TS]

00:17:20   funny [TS]

00:17:20   yeah and and disagree yeah and and a lot [TS]

00:17:25   of that is a is present and funny bones [TS]

00:17:27   where you know we keep being told that [TS]

00:17:29   these guys are absolutely hilarious and [TS]

00:17:31   then we see their routines and it's [TS]

00:17:32   something other than malaria mean [TS]

00:17:35   there's a there's a bit with the with [TS]

00:17:37   lee evans where he's basically miming [TS]

00:17:41   what's going on on the radio [TS]

00:17:42   in this extremely frenetic fashion and [TS]

00:17:45   technically you could you look at it and [TS]

00:17:47   you appreciate it because you know he's [TS]

00:17:49   really doing a great job of acting it [TS]

00:17:52   out but it's not actually funny and [TS]

00:17:54   you're watching this crowd laughs [TS]

00:17:55   uproariously as though they as they [TS]

00:17:57   think it's the funniest thing I've ever [TS]

00:17:58   seen and yet it's just it's just not [TS]

00:18:00   happening so i wouldn't watch it for [TS]

00:18:03   humor sake but it's a very interesting [TS]

00:18:05   film and I think I i probably will watch [TS]

00:18:08   it again before i send it back just so i [TS]

00:18:10   can get a better feel for what I really [TS]

00:18:12   think about it but it's definitely worth [TS]

00:18:14   a watch I I wouldn't put it in my top [TS]

00:18:15   five certainly but as far as additional [TS]

00:18:20   ways with which I can abuse Glenn I'm [TS]

00:18:23   gonna have to buy off how does it [TS]

00:18:26   compare to highlander I've never got [TS]

00:18:29   around to see highlights eating [TS]

00:18:30   highlander I have to and now you're [TS]

00:18:31   missing out [TS]

00:18:32   are there bones I there are there is [TS]

00:18:36   mention of of bones of the funny variety [TS]

00:18:38   free ok Lois you said it was very funny [TS]

00:18:41   and it's like it's in the title so right [TS]

00:18:43   right and jerry lewis is not he's he's [TS]

00:18:46   basically just present in a variety of [TS]

00:18:48   scenes so I would expect that differing [TS]

00:18:50   the funny question up quite a bit but it [TS]

00:18:52   doesn't [TS]

00:18:53   okay thank you for that report that's [TS]

00:18:55   our that's our own film Glenn Glenn film [TS]

00:22:29   our attempts to include Lex when we was [TS]

00:22:46   minute that you couldn't [TS]

00:22:47   why was that nobody put on their list [TS]

00:22:50   the exorcist or what I considered it but [TS]

00:22:55   they're there is a scene that involves [TS]

00:22:57   copious amounts of vomit and i would say [TS]

00:23:00   that the the five-year-old in my home [TS]

00:23:02   vastly exceeded the quantities of homage [TS]

00:23:04   shown in that film all and so we're [TS]

00:23:07   drafting movies that the I you know it's [TS]

00:23:09   over i'm literally putting putting her [TS]

00:23:11   to sleep and saying okay I'm gonna go [TS]

00:23:13   i'm getting ready now to start no I'm [TS]

00:23:15   sure she'd been asleep for a couple [TS]

00:23:16   hours because this it was your time not [TS]

00:23:24   and right as I going to check on her she [TS]

00:23:26   wakes up and starts throwing up [TS]

00:23:27   everywhere it was horrible she saw be [TS]

00:23:30   happy but she's fine now she's really [TS]

00:23:34   fine then but not a fan of being [TS]

00:23:36   comfortable with I i kept I kept i was [TS]

00:23:38   texting a Dannan and read and say hey I [TS]

00:23:41   think I can be there in 20 minutes and i [TS]

00:23:42   just saw how many more things were dirty [TS]

00:23:44   and how much more of our dinner and let [TS]

00:23:45   you know what it's just it's just not [TS]

00:23:47   going to happen and it did not happen [TS]

00:23:48   and it didn't i'm here now so do you [TS]

00:23:50   have that you know we and we also joke [TS]

00:23:52   that there are lots of movies that you [TS]

00:23:53   haven't seen what we don't joke about it [TS]

00:23:54   we stated the fact that it is bright but [TS]

00:23:57   welcome to our spin-off podcast yes well [TS]

00:24:00   it's what we are not showing it would [TS]

00:24:02   likely not showing la on playing with [TS]

00:24:04   Lex free blacks Friedman solex do you [TS]

00:24:06   have have you seen five movies that are [TS]

00:24:08   available that you could pick by yes i [TS]

00:24:11   have a list of 14 in the five that I [TS]

00:24:14   narrowed it down to was very hard it was [TS]

00:24:15   like you know killing children but [TS]

00:24:18   the five children perhaps yes those are [TS]

00:24:21   easier to kill but slippery I all five [TS]

00:24:25   of them i would say qualifies comedies [TS]

00:24:27   because i'm a simple person and i think [TS]

00:24:28   only two of them could really qualify as [TS]

00:24:30   nerdy but here we go in no particular [TS]

00:24:32   order the five greatest movies that i [TS]

00:24:35   would put in my draft are my cousin [TS]

00:24:39   vinny who which I just saw for the first [TS]

00:24:42   time yesterday [TS]

00:24:43   really yeah did you enjoy it I enjoyed [TS]

00:24:47   it yes [TS]

00:24:48   okay I believe that my cousin Vinny's [TS]

00:24:50   one of the best paste movie comedies of [TS]

00:24:52   all time and it's just written it'sit's [TS]

00:24:54   mean the writing is really type marisa [TS]

00:24:56   tomei Oscar came from the phrase marisa [TS]

00:25:00   tomei Oscar exists French windows the [TS]

00:25:03   judge [TS]

00:25:04   yeah i saw the movie in college and was [TS]

00:25:06   not expecting picked it up kind of as a [TS]

00:25:09   rainy day movie and was not expecting it [TS]

00:25:11   to be as smart and funny is it actually [TS]

00:25:13   was [TS]

00:25:14   I mean I have seen that movie easily 30 [TS]

00:25:16   40 50 times and I still enjoy new things [TS]

00:25:19   about it each time I see it I watching [TS]

00:25:20   the other movies instead though yeah [TS]

00:25:22   when Joe Pesci get shot in the back of [TS]

00:25:25   the head haha ok that's one of the [TS]

00:25:28   things that makes the movie so [TS]

00:25:29   surprising and delightful is that you [TS]

00:25:31   know coming out of Goodfellas wacky i [TS]

00:25:33   think is the word you're looking for is [TS]

00:25:34   any way [TS]

00:25:35   nowacki very specifically wacky and also [TS]

00:25:39   i would say that Ralph Macchio gives the [TS]

00:25:41   performance of a lifetime but if he [TS]

00:25:43   doesn't sweep away i thought the karate [TS]

00:25:45   kid was his performance of a lifetime [TS]

00:25:46   I've ever seen that one right into our [TS]

00:25:51   hands and we should have i wish i had a [TS]

00:25:54   little jingle that will wear for [TS]

00:25:56   professional singers play lex hasn't [TS]

00:25:59   seed it [TS]

00:26:01   oh that can be arranged Jason honestly [TS]

00:26:04   can you go through life without having [TS]

00:26:05   heard wax on wax off [TS]

00:26:07   no i mean i can appreciate the [TS]

00:26:08   references i just never actually selects [TS]

00:26:11   admit [TS]

00:26:12   ok so that's number one you've got [TS]

00:26:14   you've got it and it's not the cryptic [TS]

00:26:16   number two dozen video got it [TS]

00:26:19   number two is the first of two michael j [TS]

00:26:22   fox appearances on my list and it is [TS]

00:26:24   back to the future and i went with the [TS]

00:26:26   original because it's I think the most [TS]

00:26:27   classic of the three classics with I [TS]

00:26:29   mean the entire trilogy is excellent but [TS]

00:26:31   it's the original back [TS]

00:26:32   the future and the reason i can praise [TS]

00:26:34   back to the future so greatly is you've [TS]

00:26:36   seen it in the s in the modern world if [TS]

00:26:40   your fictional creation whether it's [TS]

00:26:42   book movie television where it follows [TS]

00:26:44   the rules of time travel as established [TS]

00:26:46   by back to the future [TS]

00:26:47   you don't have to explain that because [TS]

00:26:48   you can assume that people's [TS]

00:26:50   understanding people's modern [TS]

00:26:51   understanding of how time travel would [TS]

00:26:53   could should work is as established by [TS]

00:26:55   back to the future you only have to [TS]

00:26:56   explain your rules if they differ [TS]

00:26:58   because back to the future has become [TS]

00:26:59   the norm and i think that's that's a [TS]

00:27:01   very impressive feat for a mid eighties [TS]

00:27:03   move into it she was actually an episode [TS]

00:27:04   of Doctor Who which is a show that [TS]

00:27:06   predates back to the future by 20 years [TS]

00:27:08   but it's been on for 50 years so we're [TS]

00:27:11   here to explain something about time [TS]

00:27:12   travel they make a reference to back to [TS]

00:27:14   the future it's like what wait a second [TS]

00:27:16   yeah but you're but but but if people i [TS]

00:27:18   know my understanding of Time Traveler's [TS]

00:27:20   paradoxes are is resolved by people [TS]

00:27:22   disappearing from the feet up in photos [TS]

00:27:26   it's a bit wars with Bill and Ted's [TS]

00:27:28   Excellent Adventure for me in terms of [TS]

00:27:29   you know time travel mechanics paradoxes [TS]

00:27:32   begin at ground level [TS]

00:28:43   great because but I I kept finding [TS]

00:28:46   myself pointing out okay well you know [TS]

00:28:59   your name is Michael J Fox saying it [TS]

00:29:01   doesn't seem in New a simpler time it [TS]

00:29:03   didn't see that irritating that actually [TS]

00:29:05   was great for the eight-year-old because [TS]

00:29:06   I I after a while I just SAT back and [TS]

00:29:08   let cool well i'll just wait for him to [TS]

00:29:10   point it out this movie explains itself [TS]

00:29:11   and i was it's it's the only movie on my [TS]

00:29:14   list i believe that has implied incest [TS]

00:29:17   so that's where and when Christopher [TS]

00:29:22   Lloyd christopher lloyd was the star [TS]

00:29:23   trek 3 so that's it all comes better use [TS]

00:29:27   a clean lines he won't be getting ready [TS]

00:29:29   for which has time travel [TS]

00:29:30   yeah up em moving my cousin vinny i [TS]

00:29:33   enjoyed the first time I saw although i [TS]

00:29:34   was really too young to appreciate me [TS]

00:29:36   the scenes this next movie [TS]

00:29:38   hey I it's the one I would say that I'm [TS]

00:29:40   closest to being embarrassed about for [TS]

00:29:41   having it on my list but I believe it [TS]

00:29:43   gets funnier and funnier with repeat [TS]

00:29:44   viewings and it is the Julie Roberts [TS]

00:29:47   Hugh Grant vehicle notting hill [TS]

00:29:50   oh not again I think it's a good movie [TS]

00:29:52   it's really i saw it and liked it i've [TS]

00:29:55   only seen it the one time but the only [TS]

00:29:57   problem I had with Notting Hill even [TS]

00:29:59   though i love it is that if you great [TS]

00:30:02   really has no reason to fall for and be [TS]

00:30:05   in love with Julia Roberts's character [TS]

00:30:07   other than the fact that you know she's [TS]

00:30:09   a movie star but she is just horrible to [TS]

00:30:10   him for about ninety eight percent of [TS]

00:30:12   the film but it's exactly the reason you [TS]

00:30:14   fall in love most of the time and i'm [TS]

00:30:16   doing a rock from a distance but I mean [TS]

00:30:19   that movie is very the the British isms [TS]

00:30:22   that move your excellent which I'm sure [TS]

00:30:24   day more could appreciate and it's being [TS]

00:30:26   bred material may try yes but it's I [TS]

00:30:30   don't know it's it's it's very very [TS]

00:30:32   nicely it's not just well written [TS]

00:30:33   it's so nicely performed that the [TS]

00:30:35   performances especially for Hugh Grant [TS]

00:30:37   it'sit's like the classic you greater [TS]

00:30:39   role where he can put all of his [TS]

00:30:40   stammering endeavoring to [TS]

00:30:41   the max and staring at number two [TS]

00:30:45   separate things that he does and the [TS]

00:30:48   scene where he doesn't realize that [TS]

00:30:50   he'll be meeting with the famed actress [TS]

00:30:52   during a press junket for her latest to [TS]

00:30:55   him and he spots the magazine on the [TS]

00:30:59   counter says he's there representing [TS]

00:31:00   horse and hound [TS]

00:31:02   it's just like one of the funniest [TS]

00:31:04   scenes in cinematography history about a [TS]

00:31:07   boy is my favorite Hugh Grant movie [TS]

00:31:08   that's a that's an excellent that was [TS]

00:31:11   for me [TS]

00:31:11   yeah yeah that's a good thing but that's [TS]

00:31:13   good okay what and and very sci-fi [TS]

00:31:15   connection i feel i should point out [TS]

00:31:17   there's 1,000,000 Robert Julia Roberts [TS]

00:31:19   in a science fiction right because he [TS]

00:31:20   says are there any horses movie and she [TS]

00:31:22   says well it's set in space and it's [TS]

00:31:25   pretty great [TS]

00:31:26   I number four is michael j fox second [TS]

00:31:28   appearance it's the American president [TS]

00:31:29   it's it's very hard to pick my i really [TS]

00:31:34   like presidents I like movies about [TS]

00:31:36   presidents it was hard to pick my [TS]

00:31:37   favorite presidential movie but the [TS]

00:31:39   American president as a just seeing the [TS]

00:31:41   president estates playing the chief of [TS]

00:31:42   staff that beat update it does you don't [TS]

00:31:46   even know my uncle is going to take but [TS]

00:31:49   ya know the American president is so [TS]

00:31:51   great that your uncle was in Dave a part [TS]

00:31:53   of Glen flashby isn't what I want the [TS]

00:31:57   American president I feel in competition [TS]

00:32:00   with all these other films on my list is [TS]

00:32:02   is flawed in many ways it's not [TS]

00:32:04   perfectly written it's not properly [TS]

00:32:06   perform but the whole truly is greater [TS]

00:32:07   than its a its parts as you sum them [TS]

00:32:10   just because it's not so much of it [TS]

00:32:12   works so well and just especially if you [TS]

00:32:14   watch it after having consumed and fully [TS]

00:32:16   digested the west wing you can [TS]

00:32:17   appreciate it i think even more and it's [TS]

00:32:20   great it's really good it's basically [TS]

00:32:21   like the pilot of the west wing I mean [TS]

00:32:23   it with the Western was what if we did [TS]

00:32:24   this is a show right that's exactly this [TS]

00:32:27   is he literally started with no [TS]

00:32:29   storylines they dropped from American [TS]

00:32:32   president to start the west and it's [TS]

00:32:33   like Martin Sheen your the spear the [TS]

00:32:34   chief of staff [TS]

00:32:35   hmm how would you like a promotion it's [TS]

00:32:37   on TV but technically it's a criminology [TS]

00:32:40   couldn't get Michael Douglas and [TS]

00:32:42   it'sit's creates kits crazy to watch the [TS]

00:32:44   movie now to see because you know Martin [TS]

00:32:45   she's supposed to be the president and [TS]

00:32:47   yet he's not it's bizarre [TS]

00:32:48   it is weird bizarre and number five [TS]

00:32:52   yes because nobody has anything else to [TS]

00:32:53   say that the American president [TS]

00:32:55   but you can't handle the truth wait no [TS]

00:32:58   that's totally not the wrong with an [TS]

00:33:00   even number five and i think my favorite [TS]

00:33:02   movie of the list is being john [TS]

00:33:04   malkovich huh like that movie people do [TS]

00:33:08   like that I like that movie too like [TS]

00:33:09   that the only thing I can say about John [TS]

00:33:11   Malkovich being young off which is that [TS]

00:33:13   this last over christmas we had a white [TS]

00:33:16   elephant party for my roller derby team [TS]

00:33:18   and I got a series of like babushka [TS]

00:33:23   Russian nesting dolls which 1i that were [TS]

00:33:26   yes fish your letter baby are in the [TS]

00:33:30   face [TS]

00:33:30   yes they they had the face of John [TS]

00:33:34   Malkovich on them and when you open them [TS]

00:33:36   up then they're all the different [TS]

00:33:38   characters of john malkovich who go into [TS]

00:33:40   his brain and then the tiniest little [TS]

00:33:43   one is just a black speck of of [TS]

00:33:48   nothingness which is a lovely metaphor [TS]

00:33:52   for the who's bringing the podcast down [TS]

00:33:54   now [TS]

00:33:54   yeah charlie charlie kaufman's [TS]

00:33:58   screenplays are all over the place this [TS]

00:34:01   is one for me this is one of the good [TS]

00:34:03   ones that i have a well-known just like [TS]

00:34:06   for adaptation which is another one of [TS]

00:34:08   his but this this is I think him on on [TS]

00:34:10   the upswing mrs. of the things I feel [TS]

00:34:12   like this is this is this is his Grand [TS]

00:34:14   Slam yeah where everything else I feel [TS]

00:34:15   like it's trying too hard to be John [TS]

00:34:17   Malkovich ask but I mean when you when [TS]

00:34:20   you describe viously you cannot describe [TS]

00:34:22   the premise of Being John Malkovich [TS]

00:34:23   without sounding ridiculous but what I [TS]

00:34:25   think is what drives it into excellence [TS]

00:34:28   is that it's not just the ridiculous [TS]

00:34:30   parts that are ridiculous it everything [TS]

00:34:31   that's ridiculous got a moment when you [TS]

00:34:33   think it's ridiculous enough and then [TS]

00:34:34   John Malkovich goes inside his own brain [TS]

00:34:36   that yes that's the moment we're like [TS]

00:34:39   okay [TS]

00:34:40   wow what what am I see so many mouths [TS]

00:34:42   but the the seven-and-a-half floor the [TS]

00:34:45   the exiting onto the new jersey turnpike [TS]

00:34:47   the fact that he wants to be a man [TS]

00:34:49   becomes eventually the famed puppeteer [TS]

00:34:52   like all of it is ridiculous and it's [TS]

00:34:54   all I manado I think it's great i can [TS]

00:34:56   watch that's what the five movies I [TS]

00:34:57   picked my selection criteria was movies [TS]

00:34:59   that I could watch endlessly forever [TS]

00:35:01   whenever they are on and I think [TS]

00:35:03   Malkovich holds the the championship in [TS]

00:35:06   that title for me but I really [TS]

00:35:07   yeah i think i saw that once in like [TS]

00:35:09   leaders i don't think i've ever seen it [TS]

00:35:10   since and I think I'm okay with that and [TS]

00:35:12   nothing I didn't like it i just i'd i [TS]

00:35:14   can't imagine a scenario which I was [TS]

00:35:15   like yeah let's really rewatch that but [TS]

00:35:17   those are good those that was that was a [TS]

00:35:19   great list thank you thank you had [TS]

00:35:20   nobody nobody projectile-vomited as far [TS]

00:35:23   as I could tell and if they did they use [TS]

00:35:24   their mute switch so good [TS]

00:35:26   I've locked the door here tonight if [TS]

00:35:27   they're vomiting elsewhere i don't know [TS]

00:35:29   about it in the house [TS]

00:35:29   Greg notice you are you Greg would you [TS]

00:35:33   like to pick Star Wars I would indeed [TS]

00:35:36   ok and anybody who wouldn't is a solar [TS]

00:35:39   shallow shell of a human being so with [TS]

00:35:42   your first election and i'm going with [TS]

00:35:43   the raft you're going to take star wars [TS]

00:35:45   star wars nothing but side in mind the [TS]

00:35:48   next four choices r star wars as well [TS]

00:35:50   alright we can we can refer everybody [TS]

00:35:52   back to our two-part Star Wars podcast [TS]

00:35:53   where Greg participated and explains [TS]

00:35:56   very much why life for him is divided [TS]

00:35:59   into pre star wars and post star wars [TS]

00:36:01   and it was a life-changing event and you [TS]

00:36:03   know what it is a good movie and and I I [TS]

00:36:04   feel bad that it didn't get picked [TS]

00:36:06   because i think that Empire just sort of [TS]

00:36:09   like everybody's like all right we've [TS]

00:36:10   represented star wars and we'll move on [TS]

00:36:12   and i'm not sure whether that was the [TS]

00:36:14   right thing to do or not so you know I [TS]

00:36:15   understand the artistic and technical [TS]

00:36:17   achievement of empire but it's just it's [TS]

00:36:21   a sequel it's an in established universe [TS]

00:36:23   its characters that we already know it's [TS]

00:36:25   not going from 0 to star wars now wasn't [TS]

00:36:29   it you who told me recently that aliens [TS]

00:36:31   was better than alien yes Jessie Kathryn [TS]

00:36:38   but they're different did alien and [TS]

00:36:40   aliens are two totally different yeah [TS]

00:36:41   they share the area yeah but there are [TS]

00:36:43   two totally different movies and [TS]

00:36:46   different genres even well there was an [TS]

00:36:49   entire the city that on the characters [TS]

00:36:51   the whole tone of the thing was with a [TS]

00:36:53   legit built up by alien but I mean I [TS]

00:36:55   understand there's another difference [TS]

00:36:56   later that survives a Sigourney Weaver [TS]

00:36:58   in the Geiger design [TS]

00:37:00   well yeah but the whole the whole [TS]

00:37:01   android that you don't trust in the kind [TS]

00:37:04   of gritty blue-collar spacemen thing [TS]

00:37:07   that all comes from the first movie [TS]

00:37:09   yeah what they lift the first movie is [TS]

00:37:11   space long-haul truckers the second [TS]

00:37:13   movie Space Marines it's a it's a horror [TS]

00:37:15   movie vs of war movie [TS]

00:37:16   I just think they're two totally [TS]

00:37:17   different things and [TS]

00:37:19   aliens is better than alien to each his [TS]

00:37:22   own i say by the way like Empire better [TS]

00:37:25   to just let you know happiness is my [TS]

00:37:30   second choice would have been Monty [TS]

00:37:31   Python but that got picked [TS]

00:37:33   yeah so i'm going to substitute the [TS]

00:37:36   three stooges short a plumbing we will [TS]

00:37:38   go as my comedy touchstone wow if you [TS]

00:37:42   haven't seen it and you have a [TS]

00:37:44   y-chromosome go out and see it now it [TS]

00:37:49   actually reminded the jar on my desk if [TS]

00:37:51   I keep mine in a little tick box on my [TS]

00:37:54   nightstand [TS]

00:37:55   I keep Lex's in a jar on my desk so [TS]

00:37:57   weird it is funny as hell and it is [TS]

00:38:00   immature as hell and goofy as hell and [TS]

00:38:02   all of those are great things for a [TS]

00:38:04   young boy growing up who sees the world [TS]

00:38:07   through five o'clock reruns on KTLA in [TS]

00:38:11   Los Angeles my third choice would have [TS]

00:38:13   been breakfast club and so instead of [TS]

00:38:16   breakfast club what we're gonna do is [TS]

00:38:18   just on my day we will sit in the [TS]

00:38:19   theater for silently for two hours and [TS]

00:38:21   we will all be miserable because that's [TS]

00:38:25   pretty much my memory of the time that [TS]

00:38:27   breakfast club came we would invite some [TS]

00:38:28   football players from a local high [TS]

00:38:29   school to come if you people beat the [TS]

00:38:31   Nerds up for two hours yeah it great [TS]

00:38:34   everybody's seen it some some new bully [TS]

00:38:36   will rotate through the theater [TS]

00:38:37   intimidating people taking their money [TS]

00:38:39   and making threatening violence out [TS]

00:38:41   about the people's lives [TS]

00:38:43   that's why I felt that we should have [TS]

00:38:45   the backpackers common and serve popcorn [TS]

00:38:47   because then we'd all feel better about [TS]

00:38:49   herself [TS]

00:38:49   so what this is about the jocks will [TS]

00:38:52   come and beat us up that's number three [TS]

00:38:53   that which i think it encompasses the [TS]

00:38:55   experience of the incomparable film [TS]

00:38:57   festival and the number four and nobody [TS]

00:39:01   picked any sneakers didn't get picked [TS]

00:39:04   right [TS]

00:39:04   no it was on somebody's shit was on my [TS]

00:39:08   honorable mention was i'm picking more [TS]

00:39:10   games [TS]

00:39:10   yeah thank you [TS]

00:39:14   no it's not you're gonna bring a tear to [TS]

00:39:16   John Syracuse's I it's a great movie [TS]

00:39:19   it's a lot of fun and [TS]

00:39:21   I I i wrote a program called falken [TS]

00:39:24   shortly after the movie came out it and [TS]

00:39:27   that is a good movie [TS]

00:39:28   no real estate is no real genius but it [TS]

00:39:31   is a good is a very good movie wargames [TS]

00:39:33   was the first movie I saw that showed a [TS]

00:39:36   world that I was into which was BBS's [TS]

00:39:38   and then going online and all kinds of [TS]

00:39:40   super cool stuff that was just starting [TS]

00:39:42   out that kind of helped build the world [TS]

00:39:45   that we live in and I connected with me [TS]

00:39:49   I'm not realize there's a lot of [TS]

00:39:50   silliness there you know Matthew [TS]

00:39:51   Broderick running around threatening to [TS]

00:39:53   destroy the world through a 300 baud [TS]

00:39:54   modem but it could it's a great movie [TS]

00:39:57   and it's gonna take awhile clicks every [TS]

00:39:59   one of these movies it top to bottom is [TS]

00:40:02   something that changed my life in some [TS]

00:40:04   way because it spoke to me more than [TS]

00:40:05   it's its technical sophistication and [TS]

00:40:07   more than the quality of its writing [TS]

00:40:10   laser brain and the Senate a movie is a [TS]

00:40:13   piece of art and you connect to a piece [TS]

00:40:16   of art independent from every one of [TS]

00:40:18   those things and so screw you search [TS]

00:40:22   uh-huh in summit that's what I'm really [TS]

00:40:25   something up to here but used to potato [TS]

00:40:26   head he actually likes war game so well [TS]

00:40:29   and all right you should have said that [TS]

00:40:31   earlier but uh ok war games and then [TS]

00:40:34   ranted rounding out my rant about art is [TS]

00:40:36   fifth is devices is guy heart that [TS]

00:40:38   well-known yes Alan Rickman is a [TS]

00:40:41   fantastic actor a Hans Gruber is an [TS]

00:40:44   amazing character and John McClane is [TS]

00:40:46   pretty good too [TS]

00:40:47   I'm and diehard just kind of comes [TS]

00:40:49   together in a way that defines action [TS]

00:40:51   movies everybody smart which is really [TS]

00:40:54   really rare and they all make totally [TS]

00:40:56   sensible decisions and it's fun [TS]

00:40:58   I i think i mentioned this on a previous [TS]

00:41:02   podcast but a die-hard came at a time in [TS]

00:41:05   my life when I dropped out of school and [TS]

00:41:06   was living with my parents and I would [TS]

00:41:08   go to see the matinees at the local [TS]

00:41:11   theater because it was two bucks at 11pm [TS]

00:41:13   and i came out at our height diehard at [TS]

00:41:15   one in the morning just incredibly amped [TS]

00:41:18   to amp to go home and go to sleep so I [TS]

00:41:20   just kind of stopped around the Baron [TS]

00:41:22   mall pretending I was shooting bad guys [TS]

00:41:27   you're going to edit this right Jason [TS]

00:41:28   and let's say I'm doing the matter how [TS]

00:41:32   old you were when you're doing this 20 [TS]

00:41:36   yeah i have not yet seen die hard [TS]

00:41:40   ah have you seen war games i have seen [TS]

00:41:46   more games have you seen Star Wars I the [TS]

00:41:48   first one yet have you seen a plumbing [TS]

00:41:51   we will go oh I'm sorry i have not have [TS]

00:41:54   you have you sat in a theater for two [TS]

00:41:57   hours and cried all jocks beat you up [TS]

00:41:59   that's why I stopped seeing movies [TS]

00:42:01   actually so do we just declare me the [TS]

00:42:05   victor now or something with every break [TS]

00:42:07   making martinis served during and after [TS]

00:42:11   the the two hours of silence and said [TS]

00:42:14   that's so so that but just to get back [TS]

00:42:18   to this star wars empire thing because [TS]

00:42:19   it did come up you know your your your [TS]

00:42:22   can avoid it is what this podcast is [TS]

00:42:24   about your argument is is at its core [TS]

00:42:27   that star wars is the original movie and [TS]

00:42:31   it created the world and although Empire [TS]

00:42:32   is a in many ways a a better filmmaking [TS]

00:42:36   achievement it's better directed it's [TS]

00:42:38   got a better budget the characters are [TS]

00:42:40   more are given more to do that that why [TS]

00:42:44   you prefer Star Wars is because not only [TS]

00:42:46   was it a revelation because it was [TS]

00:42:49   completely new when you saw it but [TS]

00:42:51   because it's set everything in motion [TS]

00:42:52   whereas Empire all it had to do is take [TS]

00:42:55   the baton from this incredibly [TS]

00:42:57   successful first movie is that about [TS]

00:42:59   right before Star Wars there was no star [TS]

00:43:03   wars after Star Wars it had altered our [TS]

00:43:05   culture and what a notion of a movie [TS]

00:43:08   blockbuster was and how movie [TS]

00:43:10   merchandising was happening and this [TS]

00:43:12   seminal event in it i'm willing to guess [TS]

00:43:15   everyone of our lives at least the ones [TS]

00:43:17   were old enough to have had a pre Star [TS]

00:43:20   Wars existence that wasn't you know in [TS]

00:43:22   utero [TS]

00:43:24   I appreciate Empire I think it's great [TS]

00:43:26   movie but Star Wars is an experience [TS]

00:43:29   it's an event it's a it's a milestone [TS]

00:43:31   it's a cultural this message to five [TS]

00:43:32   best events Greg come on movies 5 [TS]

00:43:35   decimal and maybe this is an event [TS]

00:43:36   that's a movie i agree with it on a [TS]

00:43:39   seminal point [TS]

00:43:40   view sure star wars are very very [TS]

00:43:42   important movie it should get how will [TS]

00:43:43   be ready to start word it that Empire [TS]

00:43:45   you know took all of that iterated on it [TS]

00:43:47   to a point where made it even better [TS]

00:43:50   oh you can improve on and I just I just [TS]

00:43:52   need a link right now you know the Mona [TS]

00:43:55   Lisa to point was a great Patrick it's [TS]

00:43:59   it's twice as good [TS]

00:44:00   Wow and Syracuse it makes the argument [TS]

00:44:02   that it's a i'm making a degree of [TS]

00:44:04   difficulty argument that that getting [TS]

00:44:06   Star Wars made and having it be good is [TS]

00:44:08   harder than getting Empire made and [TS]

00:44:10   having it be good but i don't care i [TS]

00:44:13   think that that goes into it [TS]

00:44:15   everything that goes into making up star [TS]

00:44:17   wars is part of the film and it to [TS]

00:44:20   consider it as just a movie or or even [TS]

00:44:24   worse just a movie that didn't have a [TS]

00:44:27   time before it existed is missing out on [TS]

00:44:30   what it does and what it created all [TS]

00:44:33   right John syracuse it's your turn for [TS]

00:44:34   rebuttal [TS]

00:44:35   he had a three-hour little he's not here [TS]

00:44:39   podcast I john sorry John did after [TS]

00:44:43   Glenn kills the rest of you John coming [TS]

00:44:44   out that's I think exactly what's gonna [TS]

00:44:46   happen so I'm to the existing [TS]

00:44:50   participants of the of the movie drafted [TS]

00:44:53   in in listening back and and thinking [TS]

00:44:55   back to the the the slates that you [TS]

00:44:58   drafted you have any anything you were [TS]

00:45:00   you regret are you pretty happy with [TS]

00:45:02   your selections I almost kind of regret [TS]

00:45:05   not picking gattaca once once guy [TS]

00:45:08   brought it out it was a lot of heaven i [TS]

00:45:09   love on Twitter the other night there [TS]

00:45:10   was a lot of Attica love on Twitter it [TS]

00:45:12   was that movie was on my top five until [TS]

00:45:17   mid college and I haven't thought about [TS]

00:45:18   it in a couple years but there's there's [TS]

00:45:21   a lot I mean that that movie and I take [TS]

00:45:23   most of internal stuff is pretty [TS]

00:45:25   underrated in terms of I seem to [TS]

00:45:28   remember not a lot of people were really [TS]

00:45:29   into it I saw it first in a biology [TS]

00:45:31   class of all things even though it's not [TS]

00:45:33   exactly the the most accurate [TS]

00:45:35   representation of of genomics placing [TS]

00:45:38   but it's still that the whole concept of [TS]

00:45:40   being able to rise above what your your [TS]

00:45:43   jeans are programmed to do in and great [TS]

00:45:45   performances by all of the cast involved [TS]

00:45:48   it's a it's a very solid movie that has [TS]

00:45:50   this this science-fiction bent but is [TS]

00:45:53   still there [TS]

00:45:54   very much about it's a human story it's [TS]

00:45:56   it's very much about ethan hawke and and [TS]

00:45:58   his journey and there's a family aspect [TS]

00:46:01   and and really really cool stuff about [TS]

00:46:04   and there's a murder mystery in the [TS]

00:46:06   middle of it edit [TS]

00:46:07   it's it's a really really great movie i [TS]

00:46:10   don't know where I would put it in my [TS]

00:46:12   top five now because it would it would [TS]

00:46:14   probably end out Rocketeer but i don't [TS]

00:46:17   know i don't know how i feel about that [TS]

00:46:19   so i don't know i'm at the same i'm just [TS]
