Artemis Fowl debuts on Disney Plus this
Friday I was able to see it early
through a screening link that was pretty
nice it's been a while since I've seen a
film early and been able to give you
guys an early review this one was based
off the famous book series mostly the
first book in that series and it's
directed by Kenneth Branagh who last
made Cinderella for Disney and Thor this
film has been in development hell for a
long time all the way since the early
2000s when the books were very popular
and they first came out this movie has
been passed through many different
directors hands many different writers
and it's finally landing on Disney Plus
this weekend a trailer for it debuted
like a year and a half ago then it was
pushed back even more and of course with
a pandemic it's now just being dumped on
Disney Plus which is interesting because
Disney has been very careful to not put
a lot of their films that were supposed
to come out like Mulan or New Mutants on
Disney Plus but they're comfortable
putting Artemis Fowl on Disney Plus why
is that I didn't like the remake of
Aladdin I didn't like the remake of The
Lion King most of Disney's live-action
movies of the past few years have been
very disappointing for me Artemis Fowl
occupies a different category entirely
this film is incredibly awful I mean
stunningly bad and I went back and
watched the teaser trailer that debuted
a year and a half ago and I can confirm
that maybe two or three shots in that
teaser are actually in the movie whoever
the woman is in the white dress I don't
remember seeing that so much of that
trailer is not in the film it feels like
they shot a trailer they didn't actually
have any of that from the movie the
young actor they chose for Artemis Fowl
ii his name is for dia shaw and this is
his first role it's his first credit on
IMDB ever I feel so bad for this kid and
I mean that completely genuinely this is
a terrible performance
it feels amateur in every way it feels
like whenever he gets one of his lines
out his face locks up and he's done with
his line reading now but they're still
filming him and he's just waiting for
someone to feed him another
it's embarrassing it's really fucking
embarrassing and I feel bad for the kid
he's really bad in the movie but
honestly the worst part of this film is
that it feels like it has no story the
core gist of the movie is that Artemis
Fowl senior played by Colin Farrell who
apparently shot his entire role in like
three days
his kidnapped and whoever kidnapped him
wants this incredible secret device
that's going to give them all of these
abilities and powers so yeah it's a
giant MacGuffin that everyone wants to
get so Artemis Fowl ii has to find
wherever this thing is so that he can
use it as a bargaining chip to get his
dad back well there's also this
underground world of fairies led by Judi
Dench that's basically what the film is
about if you were to summarize it on
paper but that's really not what the
film is about the film has no idea what
it's about Josh GAD as a dwarf who is
discriminated against because he's a
tall dwarf narrates almost the entire
movie he shows up and he's being
imprisoned and he's talking to the
camera as if he's being interrogated and
if we're going to have excessive voice
over in a movie explaining every plot
detail to us it's probably best if you
don't sound like this Artemis Fowl was a
smart boy a boy filled with intellect
and smarts and he was very clever and
better than everyone he's our hero and
he's better than you I hope you'll like
him the first six minutes of the film is
entirely exposition I understand the
movies require it the first six minutes
of this movie is nothing but it and it
continues so heavy-handed and
in-your-face throughout the entire film
because they have no idea how to
condense this story into 94 minutes by
the way this is super short for a debut
franchise movie of a popular book series
I was about a half an hour into the
movie when I realized I still didn't
know what the film was trying to be
because it sets up Artemis Fowl ii and
his world and how he's like this smart
little brat that everyone apparently is
supposed to like even though he has
nothing interesting about him whatsoever
and he's kind of really annoying then
all of a sudden we're down to the
faeries world and we're meeting troll
characters that are getting stuck in
these
time freezes and there's these action
sequences there introducing a fairy that
really wants to be the best fairy ever
in the army of fairies and Judi Dench is
the old wise fairies like 800 something
years old this story line was a lot more
interesting than our title character and
it was still really really bad I thought
about this and I think this is easily
top 10 worst live-action Disney movies
ever made it might be top 5 this is
barely a movie it's barely a story if
you're a fan of these novels you are
going to probably hate this this is more
of a spy kids movie than it is an
Artemis Fowl movie I'm gonna give
Artemis Fowl an F this is such a mystery
to me 125 million dollar budget
apparently just went to this a movie
that is directed by someone who has made
good films in the past a movie that has
talented people in it but for some
reason it just feels like a hodgepodge
of scenes strung together to make a
feature-length runtime it doesn't feel
like you watch the story it doesn't feel
like any characters existed within the
narrative it just feels like a property
that has finally been given a feature
film treatment and released in some
capacity it's so so bad and it's very
disappointing guys thank you so much as
always for watching I hope you're having
a great weekend and if you do see the
film I'm curious to know what other
people think about it especially if your
major fans of the book series guys thank
you as always for watching and if you

huh
this video is sponsored by squarespace
get a kick-ass website today
so with the current film and tv industry
trying their hardest to destroy once
love franchises
it's time to look at a real franchise
killer terminator
dark fate get woke and go broke is the
saying and my
god this film went in balls deep to
prove it
now we are told this is a direct sequel
to terminator 2
judgement day scrapping all the other
sequels
t3 rise of the machines where a female
terminator was allowed to be attractive
which would make a lot of sense as the
future i know we are stupid and like
fleshy things and would use this against
us but now we are too woke for that
salvation which at least had a
believable actor playing jon
someone that this kid could have become
unlike this ugly bastard it looks like
he'd be more likely to push out of the
way for the last bottle of jack
australian he definitely pushed out of
the way for the last bottle of jack it
also had some interesting ideas we
hadn't seen before
you thank you
and genesis which is a horrible mess and
has the worst cast
weak dumb ugly and old
an old terminator how much money do you
fucking need arnie come with me if you
want to live
so losing these films is not a huge loss
and as we saw with halloween 2018 it can
work to pretend the other films didn't
exist
it's hard to know where to start with a
film this shockingly bad
do we discuss the fact that this
timeline didn't happen so how was this
terminator here
was he sent in 1984 because by
terminator 2 they were sending this
model
these guys virtually found john the day
they arrived this one has been walking
around
unnoticed anywhere from three to over 15
years
without success and still on its mission
i'm sure those metal detectors at the
airport are no problem when you're
traveling around the world looking for
john
yes all this time there's just been
another terminator getting around
all those years still on a mission to
kill and within months of pulling the
trigger
he flicks his take the form of a pussy
switch and starts wanting to change
nappies and sell drapes
i meant his mother alicia a few months
after he killed john within months of
killing jon
[Music]
what you've been feeding this thing
[Music]
blondes
lance imagine the conversation that led
to this story decision
more than one person had to agree with
this idea it can't be bargained with it
can't be reasoned with
it doesn't feel pity or remorse or fear
and it absolutely will not stop until
you are
dead there's one customer that came to
me you wanted to have solid colored
drapes in a little girl's room i said
don't do it you need butterflies
polka dots balloons
humor i love it or the fact that
filmmakers are trying to be so woke that
they describe the perfect man as this
our relationship is not physical she
appreciated that they could change
diapers efficiently and without any
complaints i am reliable
a very good listener and i'm extremely
funny perhaps you should deactivate your
emotionship for now
women in this timeline apparently don't
want or need a sex life if that's the
case
just let the world burn
there is such a strong showing of girl
power in this film that not an
error after meeting this grace dany is
completely on her side
i know if i was grabbed by a terrorist
who had just killed another terrorist i
wouldn't be instant best buds
with him but hey i'm not a girl so maybe
their periods have already lined up
which gives them a special bond who
knows
i read somewhere that their periods
attract bears
the bears can smell the menstruation
there's also the little problem of how
the different timeline occurred creating
a new future
the new future ai legion somehow ended
up having the exact same idea as skynet
built the same cyborgs
created time travel and decided on the
same plan of sending back one terminator
to do an incredibly important
assassination
this film just gets rid of skynet and
replaces it with legion which is exactly
the same
as skynet you know you want it to sound
like a cool name but i also wanted to
suggest that it's not a singular
intelligence i wanted it to feel like it
was this big distributed intelligence
that was
more than it didn't see itself as a
single entity it became this sort of
all-encompassing
thing um and so legion seemed like a
the right name now all of those things
pale in comparison to the worst thing
about this movie the destruction of
sarah connor
and it starts here all the way back at
the three-minute mark
fuck me those effects are amazing
there's no need for linda's twin these
days
to be fair sarah connor's destruction
started before the film even came out
the director tim miller had this little
gem while promoting the movie yeah if
you're enlightened she'll play like
gangbusters
if you're a closet misogynist she'll
scare the fuck out of you
because she's tough and strong but very
feminine we did not trade certain gender
traits for others she's just very strong
and that frightens some dudes you can
see online the responses to some of the
early shit that's out there
trolls on the internet i don't give a
fuck hard to believe this sales approach
didn't work
you don't give a fuck i bet you give a
fuck now fuck
the main problem with this quote is not
the misogynist part because no one likes
a misogynist
but most people know unless you've been
brainwashed there ain't many around
if you don't believe me just go ask your
dad or your brother but he can explain
it to you
plus wouldn't have sarah connor already
have scared them away
[Music]
it's the first part you have to be
enlightened what a
knob if my character doesn't work for
you it's not because i'm a hack it's
because you are not enlightened which
makes you a misogynist hate to tell you
tim
a lot of girls hated this film too are
they misogynists the fans of sarah
connor
one of the greatest female characters
ever loved by men and women were getting
threatened before the film was even
released
move i don't remember james cameron
threatening all warning as sarah had
become a badass and somehow that film
did okay
but james cameron had come off aliens so
he probably didn't think it was a big
deal
which it wasn't because people were
fucking normal back then
the alien franchise and the terminator
franchise have so much in common
good and bad both have two of the most
amazing and love female leads
both had james cameron's involvement and
both completely fuck over the second
installment
by bringing out a crap third movie that
kills all our investment and makes us
angry for the entire third film
questioning why they would choose to
make the amazing second film
a complete waste of time and make us
feel stupid for caring so much
like all returning good characters that
were loved sarah has to be horrible and
for some reason act like the terminator
i'll be back she's a complete bitch to
the person she's trying to protect and
when i say
trying to protect she's quite happy for
her to go out for packets of chips
unprotected while there's an active
terminator in the area what
what's me out of the room i would have
loved the film to end right there with
grace and sarah looking at danny's body
in the street
holding a packet of chips humanity
doomed because sarah had the munchies
why
ten bags because i really like potato
chips
sarah also gets encrypted messages from
arnie about where the next terminator is
going to drop as this is the first time
around for this timeline arnie has
no connection with this new future so
how he knows the precise
location ahead of time is interesting so
what about the texts
incremental displacement occurs there's
a shock wave through time
measurable before the event that's how
not why also this arnie has never met
sarah or john
except for when he murdered john which
didn't leave a lot of time for them to
get to know each other but arnie acts
the whole
film like they went through terminator 2
together to give you purpose sierra i
thought it would bring meaning to your
son's death
you set me free
you don't know john or sarah they were
just some ones and zeros in your head
they always end with the same two words
for
john time travel stories can be
confusing but this seems pretty obvious

do it sarah comes very close to saving
us all the misery by ending the film
early and killing the new improved
terminator which is not very surprising
as we are told she's been eliminating
them for over a decade
i hunt terminators
even grace gave him a run for his money
so you can imagine when they get
together and team up with a fully
operational terminator
minus the saggy skin they should be able
to hunt him down easily and kill him
but no just like a video game the new
terminator just levels
up and can all of a sudden take on all
three at once why not just wait for him
here where you have all the weapons and
open fields and you could you know
plan a trap kill bucks being a machine
and having no reason to not go full
force
he should have separated himself here
like he does here and finished the job
then he could have moved on to find
someone special and settle down
selling haberdashery if all this crazy
shit has been going on for
20 years wouldn't the authorities know
about it wouldn't people be talking
about it
all this and much more easily make this
movie a very hard watch
danny gives birth to the one man that
can stop it
but the fact paul linda hamilton has to
come back
and deliver lines that completely
misrepresent her original character and
what made her great
takes this movie to another level of bad
fine
let someone else be mother mary for a
while if you're mother mary why do i so
want to beat the shit out of you
hey a little respect bitch no
mother fucking mother mary did we not
see a woman who sacrificed
everything and was willing to die she
turned herself into a killing machine
all to deliver her son to the future
[Music]
ready to take on skynet and save the
world
yeah you're not the threat it's your
womb
fuck you sarah wasn't just a womb
carrying a filthy man
savior she was the savior sarah defeated
skynet not jon
she saved billions of people and won
saved three billion lives you're welcome
now that hundreds of people have seen
the time travelling robots and the
government has all the security camera
footage
they might want to talk to sarah but no
she'll go back to her original plan of
training one person
and fuck the three billion lives danny
you are not the mother of some man who
saves the future
you are the future so john who was
prepared and trained since birth is
replaced by someone who has known about
the new future for a day
tombs days in a few months she better
start training
she's john you're john saying is danny
already has two
terminators from the future shouldn't
she be emulating sarah's story
not john's john's timeline had millions
die sarah stopped all that happening
with just the help of one terminator
what's danny's plan for the future send
back a terminator to help save the
future
hang on she did that so wouldn't that in
this timeline
make her sarah she's john
[Applause]
i won't let her die for me again
these modern directors who want to shout
from the rooftops about how
woke they are and how misogynist should
fear their progressive work
yet they don't have enough faith in
women to think they can earn their place
in a story
not enough faith in women to write them
a good fucking story
this is her kill box
i know which woman i'd fear and it ain't
the midge little person
but obviously i wasn't alone and even
the director is running from this film
saying the blame all comes down to the
final edit which was out of his hands
he was singing a different tune before
the film was released my first
director's cut
was pretty pretty close to what it is
right now this is within three or four
minutes of my
uh director's cut hold on we were all
wrong the real blame is
we just don't trust terminator anymore
even with linda coming back
because no one was interested in seeing
the original sarah connor back on screen
apparently it was all the other sequels
the ones that still had jon as the
savior they were just no good
thank god the blue check marks and the
media shills like this film you did a
fantastic job with this
otherwise it could have bombed and lost
some money
[Music]
[Applause]
[Music]
you

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

since I recently reviewed Ghostbusters
2016 an unwanted unneccesary an
unpopular attempt to reboots an old
franchise with a derivative story and a
cast of inferior actors I've figured it
was time for a change of pace so this
time around I'll be reviewing oh oh the
Men in Black Series was a goofy and
occasionally entertaining trilogy that
kicked off in the late 90s making the
most of Will Smith star power a natural
flair for comedy and Tommy Lee Jones is
craggy old face to create a quirky
sci-fi action comedy that was fun and
unique it didn't exactly demand much
from the viewer but it was decent
escapist entertainment I guess but some
good things have to come to an end and
by the time the third movie was done
people were pretty happy to leave it
there not sunni though because there's
no such thing as a dead franchise to
them just bloated decaying corpses
waiting to be jolted back into a
horrifying state of quasi life which
brings us neatly along some men in black
international a pointless half-hearted
and ultimately doomed attempt to reboot
the men in black series for a new
generation of fans even though men in
black 3 only came out like seven years
earlier
shit man I've got underwear that's older
than that now whatever the upshot here
is that the film's shit it's boring
unimaginative lackluster low effort and
basically a waste of a mostly talented
cast getting through it so I could do
this review it was an absolute fucking
chore that genuinely made me question
why I even do this stuff
oh yeah drinking money anyway
suits up and let's begin the movie kicks
off with a little kid named Molly who
sees an alien one nights
but then the men in black show up and
neuralyzed her parents so they forget
about the whole thing however they don't
bother to do it on Molly because well
her parents claim that she's sleeping
even though she's literally stand in her
bedroom window in plain view with the
lights on
directly overlooking the street where
they're standing like all they have to
do is glance up and they totally see her
you'd think they would go up and check
and maybe neuralyzer anyway just in case
but now the script needs the rest of the
plots are happened so flash forward 20
years and Molly's grown up into Tessa
Thompson and she's dedicated her entire
life to finding the men in black because
she really wants to work for them what
the fuck why would you want to work for
the same people who brainwashed your
parents you know absolutely nothing
about them their motivations or their
ultimate goal for all you know they
could be part of a conspiracy to pave
the way for an alien invasion they might
be plotting the destruction of the
entire human race fuck's sake so she
hacks the Hubble Space Telescope because
that's the thing you can totally do
without anyone noticing and she uses it
to track an alien spacecraft that enters
the solar system and lands a few blocks
away from her office
whoa lucky it was only a quick taxi ride
away and not the middle of Siberia or
the Afghan mountains or fucking methyl
Shai being Scottish Racing is pretty
easy when your entire plot is founded on
convenience so she goes to the landing
site and follows an alien back to the
men in black headquarters and tries to
sneak in but she gets captured because
apparently they're not complete idiots
that's when she meets the heads woman in
black and asks to sign up because she's
got no friends or family or interests or
goals of any kind outside of this one
objective
what's a fascinating character literally
her only reason for existing is to join
an organization she knows almost nothing
about
replan and what's even better is the
head woman in black says yes Wow that's
it she doesn't need any kind of training
or detailed assessment she doesn't need
to be vetted in some way to make sure
she's a viable candidate I mean I guess
she's demonstrated initiative to make
her this far but is that really all it
takes to be given one of the most
important jobs on the planet
also isn't this kind of bad from a
character development point of view like
you're not going to show it being put
through her paces or working hard or
struggling to pass the tests needed to
make the cut in other words earning the
right to be where she is like oh she has
to do is ask for the job and that's it's
what's a great message to send to your
audience race dog walker fuck off Rae
I'll be fixing your wagon soon enough
believe that it's worth pointing out
that Molly's only motivation in life was
to become a man in black and she
accomplishes this goal in like the first
15 minutes of the movie there is
literally nothing else for her to do for
the rest of the film no other objectives
she struggling towards no secrets she's
trying to uncover no wrongs she's trying
to take revenge for in other words
nothing for us to get invested in what's
an amazing screenplay this is so know
she's been handed the job that she
always wanted she's transferred to the
London branch were she arranges to be
partnered up with Chris Hemsworth
because she thinks he's hearts more
amazing character motivation right there
Chris Hemsworth was involved in a
mission a couple of years ago that
fought off an alien invasion by a race
called the hive and since then he's
become a devil-may-care renegade that
plays by his own rules so their first
mission is to meet an alien in a
nightclub for some reason and the whole
scene goes on for about 10 minutes
longer than it should and features an
offer of dancing that I totally didn't
care about what is it with Sony movies
and pointless dance scenes until a pair
of alien assassins kill him and he
pushes our bullshit MacGuffin Somali for
safekeeping head agent Liam Neeson is
mad about this and he's worried there
might be a mole within the men in black
so he transfers Chris Hemsworth to desk
juhi while the investigators
he's like nah it'll be fine so he
persuades Molly to go with them to
Marrakesh to follow another leads why
Marrakesh because the film's called men
in black International which basically
means the script jumps to as many exotic
locations as possible to try to distract
you from the fact that none of it makes
sense don't try to use that brain of
yours just enjoy the beautiful people
and the lovely scenery like in this
scene where Molly makes a point of noise
and everyone around them because they
saw them right in an alien space break
but like three seconds later they're
riding through the streets in front of
hundreds of people and she totally
doesn't give a shit it was totally worth
it for that gag though anyway they get
cornered by a Men in Black team that's
been sent to bring them in so they
escape on the alien space bike and
teleport into the beautiful exotic
deserts that's where the bull ship
MacGuffin falls into the hands of an
alien arms dealer which forces them to
go after it what are the odds that
she'll be living in another gorgeous
exotic location called it then there's
some fighting and probably the one and
only joke in the movie that actually
lands turned referencing another better
Chris Hemsworth movie eh not sure that's
a comparison you wants to invite men in
black anyway Molly wins her fight
against the arms dealer but her alien
bodyguard has them at gunpoint until
Molly remembers that he's the very same
alien she protected 20 years earlier Wow
what are the odds a again isn't it great
when your entire script is based around
a series of insane coincidences that way
you don't have to think of smart ways to
move the plot along so because the alien
bodyguard remembers her that's enough to
make him turn against his employer and
help them to escape holy shit this guy's
your bodyguard
someone who literally turned traitor for
a person he met for all of five minutes
like two decades earlier not exactly a
great judge of character aria
anyway they recovered the bull ship
MacGuffin and head back to base for a
hero's welcome
courtesy of Liam Neeson but all is not
as it seems when Molly figures out that
Chris Hemsworth got neuralyzed himself
after his famous mission
couple of years ago and that the real
traitor is actually Liam Neeson well
lucky she's around to make these insane
leaps of deductive logic eh
because you know why have her piece
together important clues that have been
peppered throughout the screenplay
when you can just hover snap to a
conclusion immediately think I can smell
shite so they go to Paris to stop Liam
Neeson because exotic locations and we
discovered that he's actually an alien
imposter working for the hive and
because this movie has absolutely
nothing approaching original ideas he
plans to open a sky portal to his home
world allowing the rest of the hive to
come through and invade earth but then
Mali turns to the MacGuffin into a big
gun and blows him up and that's the end
of the movie blast me J plush me I'd be
like now what's a pointless waste of a
hundred million dollars this was like do
you have any idea how many dances I
could get from Tatiana for that kind of
money well I'll tell you one thing they
didn't waste money on and that was the
CGI apart from Justice League this movie
genuinely has some of the cheapest
ugliest most unconvinced in special
effects I've seen in years
Jesus MX Black Panther looked like a
visual masterpiece the plot meanders
from place to place with no sense of
pace or urgency there's no feeling that
is building up to anything significant
or the characters are up against the
same limits or a resource constraint or
they're any ones particularly concerned
about anything that's happening
basically it all centers are in
recovering the bullshit MacGuffin that
can blow stuff up there's a lot of busy
work where they find it then they lose
it again by the most contrived means
possible then they have to go and get it
again basically it's a flimsy excuse to
bounce from exotic location to exotic
location and I guess you're not really
supposed to think about why you're there
or what's even going on there's a
subplot about a mole within the men in
black but if you don't figure out the
truth within the first half hour then
you're dumber than a character from the
last Jedi speaking of characters there's
absolutely nothing in the way of
development from male or Hemsworth
Molly's basically just along for the
ride reacting to stuff as it happened
she's not striving towards a larger goal
that we can get behind she's just there
doing her job in fact her only real
objective was to become a man in black
and she achieves that with absolutely
zero difficulty in the first 15 minutes
part of the fun of the original men in
black was watching Will Smith struggled
to fit into an organization and culture
that he absolutely wasn't compatible
with he was a classic outsider he
thought spoke and acted completely
different from his highly trained but
uptight and predictable fellow agents he
wasn't particularly smart or
well-educated but he was quick-witted
and resourceful and as a result he was
able to find unorthodox solutions to
difficult problems Molly on the other
hand just seems to fit right in like
it's the most natural thing in the world
for her we're told that she has
exceptional high marks in every category
because you know of course she does but
we're never really shown anything to
back this up we don't get to see her
training or learning how to use advanced
weapons
she doesn't struggle to adapt to a new
role doesn't clash with anyone doesn't
question anything or act shocked or
surprised by what she sees I got no
sense of who she really was or what her
personality was all about because she
doesn't have one I couldn't empathize
with her struggle because she doesn't
have one I couldn't support her
motivation because she doesn't have one
chris hemsworth isn't much better
his character is flippant and cocky and
doesn't really take anything seriously
which kind of makes me think he should
have been the upstart new recruit from
the beginning and Molly should have been
the straight-laced veteran that's a
saint to whip him into shape there's
some bullshit about him being a
different man after a previous mission
the implication being that some sinister
change has taken place in him but it
goes absolutely nowhere and it means
nothing just like everything else I
guess the big sell of this movie was
seeing Hemsworth and Thompson pair up
again after the success of thor ragnarok
the difference is that movie had a
strong script and well-established
characters and let's be honest it's not
like these two are the De Niro and
Pacino of our generation and seeing them
joined forces again isn't the cinematic
event that their agent is probably wish
it was I mean they swapped some
half-decent banter at times and
Hemsworth's got enough charisma
to carry most of their sins but it's all
surface level stuff just attractive
people and attractive locations saying
lines that are occasionally amusing
strung together by a plot you're not
meant to think about too much and I
guess that's pretty much the ethos of
this entire movie don't think or stop to
question it just consume the product
forget about it and move on everything's
done in the most quick simplistic and
lazy way possible to produce an end
product that's so safe predictable and
unimaginative that it should be a
fucking MCU movie ultimately Men in
Black International is just another
addition to the sad list of films like
dark fate amazing spider-man and
ghostbusters 2016 all of which tried and
failed to restart old franchises without
really understanding what made them work
in the first place anyway the so of got
sad a go away now

Part 1

somehow the semi colonizer returned
[Music]
after nine movies finally the Skywalker
trilogy is complete or well a completer
Return of the Jedi wasn't quite good
enough for some fans and the endlessly
avaricious corporation intent on
exploiting a nostalgia under the guise
of repackaging for the new generation
what inspired you to build a sequel
trilogy right next door to the original
incredible opportunities so I really am
glad Disney stepped up to bat that dead
horse ain't gonna stay dead and I'm glad
they got JJ back to direct the
conclusion to this trilogy ryan johnson
nearly ruined everything when he undid
the end of the previous movie he tossed
aside all prior character development in
fertilised the universitat stakes and
then got rid of one of the only
characters anyone gives a shit about in
the dumbest way possible thankfully JJ's
back to put a stop to all of that let's
see oh he Faraday and the super final
conclusion for real this time
star wars the rise of Skywalker the dead
speed palm down crawl we already know
force go star thing oh you meant that
seriously dead guy is actually alive the
one who should have died from being
tossed down a shaft and vaporized did he
teleport so yeah Palpatine's back
somehow somehow Palpatine returns they
better have a damn fine explanation for
this you'll do it first oh cool okay so
he's a zombie oxides cloning secret you
wait so he's a claw many abilities some
consider
to be unnatural so he's immortal which
the fuck is it well it doesn't really
matter it's all bullshit it wasn't for
shadow to even remotely in TFA or tlj
because yeah this was a last minute
desperate attempt to shove more of the
OT into the Disney sequels the return of
Sidious is as damning a confirmation as
it gets it confirms the worst Disney did
not plan any of this dumb fuckery out
billions to buy Star Wars millions more
to churn out more installments and zero
plans for where to go with it where are
you taking this thing and you thought
your life was lacking direction of
course this was always a scaled-up cash
grab so passion for good storytelling
wasn't ever really there but come on how
did Disney not have even a basic outline
for their trilogy we have a plan I'm
gonna let you in on a little secret
compadre the mystery box was always
empty what's in the box
it's an illusion what's in a fucking box
a trick to drum up intrigue in
anticipation with potential instead of
putting in the extensive amount of work
and plotting these types of narratives
need for TFA all JJ and Lawrence Kasdan
had to do was point vaguely in
directions the story could go good
question for another time then left it
to the audience to assume the best it
worked when it was time to actually
follow all that pointing to an actual
conclusion
well JJ's been known to get a little
lost crazy to think about the guys who
copy pasted a new hope didn't have any
big ideas of their own when Ryan said
Disney didn't give him any bases to tag
well yeah did you watch his movie but if
that wasn't enough to convince you no
one was steering this ship then here you
go
somehow Palpatine returns somehow now to
be fair it's not like the original
trilogy had some big comprehensive
blueprint behind it Leo wasn't macking
on her brother because Lucas went all-in
on Star Wars is Japanese influenced
Lucas and everybody else just didn't
know Leia was Luke's sister yet somehow
I can't spell laya without a li e in a
way Disney Star Wars is carrying on the
tradition of flying the ship by the seat
of their pants
problem is they crashed it and now we're
left carving a ship in the shape of the
wreckage but Palpatine has been back in
the books for ages
what books now we thought Palpatine was
gone because for all intents and
purposes he was gone until Disney
decided that he wasn't because they
wanted another billion of your money
no one's ever really vaporized but that
raises a question how is race supposed
to get rid of this guy that's kind of
very important for the stakes of this
film make all the excuses for
Palpatine's resurrection that you want
but if they're going to bring him back
from the dead they need to set up a way
to kill him for real how much you want
to bet they were smart enough to do that
you have bet on bad odds
alrighty we're two sentences into the
movie so far making good time so it
starts out on some red planets and kylos
they're making it even redder and
racking up those style points he's there
for this chaos gem which is actually a
GPS that leads into Palpatine's hideout
a planet called EXA col Palpatine
leaving his address lying around and a
Kaos gem seems kinda counterproductive
but don't worry about it too much this
is a movie about space wizards intended
for man children
kylo shows up on X goal and finds none
other than helped us I've been really
busy being dad oh and smokes back a
whole bottle of them just hanging out on
these mad scientist's tubes if you
thought your Snoke Theory sucked why do
you still have smokes lying around pal P
you better not be doing anything weird
with them help speaks and promises kylo
an empire if he kills the last Jedi that
raises a fleet of a thousand star
destroyers right out of the ground this
genius spent the last thirty years
planning and building these things
beneath this planet's surface presumably
but forgot to install hangar doors
well what pops Laxton brain power he
makes up for in firepower because each
destroyer is outfitted with its own
death star laser cannon hitting five
planets in one shot with some pussy shit
now they can drive by hundreds thousands
billions of planets take that Empire
while you can kylo not gonna be a lot
left over I thought it was a little on
the nose to call the fleet the final
solution but I'm not one to talk open
and Chewie are out with the Falcon in
some space iceberg they're there to pick
up some message from a spy within the
first order hmm one who that could be
possibly the only first-order officer
who has a name the messages that
Palpatine's alive somehow
I'm sorry is this new did you all not
catch the message Palpatine sent out to
the entire galaxy already in fortnight
Lagrange the spy also tells them about
the super Death Star Fleet which
obviously the resistance can't hope to
even begin to defeat so why even fucking
bother sending him this message
pucks because it's a trap immediately
Tie Fighters rush in to blow the fellows
to bits
Poe and Finn don't realize they were set
up and take their time to say their
goodbyes to this thing before hold on
maneuvering through the ice JJ took one
look at hold OHS trick and went that's a
good trick
that's the first thing I want the Falcon
to do but not to be outdone by Ryan
JJ introduces his own new trick what are
you doing Lightspeed skipping when you
can just go to Lightspeed over and over
and over again in rapid succession and
it just works yeah it breaks hyperspace
even more than I would have thought
possible but look at all these colorful
visuals that gives us Oh looks like Thai
fighters can do it too though so it's
not super useful
how SPO gonna shake his tails now
oh so they'll just be too slow to react
to the massive monster mouth in front of
them
well can't get any stupider than this oh
no looks like she flies now with
floating rocks circling her as she
meditates in order to connect with the
past Jedi lives
[Music]
think I'm doing it wrong haha hey at
least Ray's not a you-know-what right
since she fails at something
sure now she can hover by the power of
her own vanilla scented farts but that's
nothing on Gary Stewart over here who
forced hovered upside-down while
balancing Yoda on his foot ray
frustrated at her charming imperfection
vents to Leia thoughts of you think it
is impossible have the voices of the
Jedi who came before Slade don't say
that
if Rey doesn't have limits she might
call it a mom a man it overpowered bitch
gen ray gets to training and they hold
up choo trains no she trains now guess
she trains now whoa careful ray you
might fall whoosh like a boomerang
god damn was just a stick and that slit
catch ain't she something special but
but but we must assume she worked her
way up to being this special so she's
not a well like a Luke remember when
Luke shut up in his third movie all
decked out in black and toss people
around like it was nothing ray doesn't
need a wardrobe change to fake growth
and character development
so anyway ray ditches training to read
some of those sacred Jedi texts as
they're such page-turners and once you
know it there's a section on chaos gems
a little obvious that Poe shows up with
race ship on fire in case you didn't
notice the movie pretends ray and Poe
are characters who have interacted
beyond their introduction at the end of
tlj then Poe drops the bombshell on the
resistance somehow Palpatine returned
wait why is everybody so shocked
Palpatine already notified y'all I
really like how dramatically Poe
delivers all this exposition like he's
in a movie or something and how
everybody else doesn't have better
direction than to glance at each other
uncomfortably these next few lines of
dialogue have been brought to you by no
shit Sherlock
so Palpatine's been out there all this
time pulling the strings always in the
shadows from the very beginning if we
want to stop him we must find him
must find x''k Oh
no fucking shit ray tells Leia she just
read about the Kaos gems conveniently I
need to finish what they started find X
ago find the Emperor no the fuck you
mean no come on lad what else were you
training her for Ninja Warrior Rey
rightly shoots her down and insists
she's going what you would do no brand
her friends about to head out except for
Rose rose last chance the general asked
me to study the specs of old destroyers
so we can stop the fleet if you find it
JJ did you know like roses character or
something specks of old destroyers so we
can stop the fleet if you find it did a
back of the bus I almost feel bad for
her the general asked me to study the
specs of old destroyers yeah get back to
studying Asian she doesn't even get her
BM AF relationship out of all this I
guess it really didn't go over too well
with the Chinese but can we actually say
fin friendzone Rose if they were barely
even friends in the first place at least
he invited her and gives her a little
shoulder path
it's so much I want to tell you tell me
when you get back that's a death flag
and that should be completely destroyed
there's been no attempt to explain how
it went from to this should at least
show ray fixing the damn thing next up
they show kylo getting his helmet fixed
Wow JJ I do find it kind of funny to
think kylo did the virgin walk back into
the elevator to pick up the pieces off
the floor while avoiding eye contact
with everybody
kylo shows up to the first order board
meeting to show off his new mask this
ball dude starts bad-mouthing Palpatine
general pride is having none of it
sit fleet will increase our resources
ten thousandfold such a range in power
correct the arrow Starkiller base yo
someone's finally bringing that up it
was an error wasn't it thank you for
saying so pride always found you the
voice of reason in these movies by the
way where the fuck did you come from
Baldy tries to start some shit again
what is he asking for in return yeah how
dare you question Palpatine's
benevolence
Ranko fly to yet another desert planets
the Star Wars galaxy is just packed to
the brim with sand
you sure this is it oh no sorry combs
the other doesn't plan it back there are
you on drugs burning man's being held
here so probably some little alien kid
gives ray a little festive necklace to
mark that she's a tourist that they can
rob later then ray is pulled into a
force call with kylo as someone who
likes and relies on a fair number of cut
music jokes I found this transition
pretty funny I'll put in what you're
good
kylo wastes no time seducing ray we'll
see oh no I'm fucking kidding me now we
know where the zoo torian's went so if
this force call feature is so
interactive that kylo can grab whole
items through it why not grab Rey's neck
with a little force choke action she'd
be into it kylo has the necklace
analyzed because I guess they have
intergalactic necklace experts on board
and learns it's from the one specific
desert planet out of the sixth resilient
of them I know it seems insanely
coincidental ray just happened to be
given a necklace that could lead kylo
right to her only seconds before he rang
her up but shut the fuck up the first
order had to Burning Man only it turns
out they already have forces on the
planet enjoying the festivities anyway
this one dumb fucks clone trooper
immediately finds Rey without the Nancy
Drew deductions and tries to hold up the
last Jedi and her friends without any
backup at all then he's suddenly killed
by a mystery arrow because stormtroopers
armors made out of fucking styrofoam the
mass crossbow man is big reveal time
old man Lando in the whole theater class
Randall just happened to be here at the
festival and spotted Threepio sexy
Android mood glimmering from across the
desert
well actually lay I just called ahead
she just forgot to tell Ray that Lando
was even there and how he has extremely
pertinent information for their quests
oopsies
it's almost like JJ wanted this to be
some epic reveal and didn't give a damn
about how it fit into the story Lando
was shocked when Poe tells him they were
looking for ex goal leh I just forgot to
mention that to him to heaven help you a
woman Lando tells the kids he came here
years and years ago following some Jedi
assassin named ouchy who had a clue to
one of the Kaos gems but they never
found him or his clue just his ship the
gang head out for said ship pursued by
storm troopers on treaded bikes I guess
they don't fly now what follows is one
boring low octane chase sequence it
never appears like our intrepid zeroes
were ever in any danger Ray's driving
while simultaneously nailing shots Finn
tosses some rope and it all works out
until one brilliant stormtrooper finally
decides to try using rockets which works
but the explosion only sends the gang
flying in to be cushy quicksand pillow
completely unharmed
however ray forgets she can fly now or
use force pole so they all sink and die
anyway
right the quicksand deposits them inside
a bunch of tunnels underneath it the
sand magically doesn't deposit itself
into the tunnels because sand is nice
and gentle and doesn't get everywhere
I like sand okay the clue they needed is
exactly where they accidentally ended up
it's a dagger with the coordinates to a
Kaos gem inscribed on it and you might
be wondering why would anyone think to
inscribe these coordinates on a tool
meant for orphanage children but that
ain't even half of it there's one hiccup
the coordinates are written in Seth
which Threepio can translate but he's
otherwise forbidden from speaking the
translation because Seth is hate speech
in that case probably should have
deleted the language from his data banks
altogether but what do I know
so his Threepio also forbidden from
writing the translation down at the very
least you should be able to drop hints
right and I a giant sand worm somehow
sneaks up on them ray viscerally decides
to pet it and all she can heal massive
wounds at a touch that's novel and it
doesn't appear to wind her at all that's
powerful
but we can't say ray is in the air emai
you say because of this anything's
possible with the force and rays merely
a conduit for it yes I perfectly
understand this makes the force seem
much more inconsistent and fickle than
ever before but honestly what did you
expect
it is female I suppose obi-wan here just
hadn't trained as hard as Ray no don't
cry Obi he was always gone this next
sequence of events is an interesting one
see if you can follow along
Branko decided to leave on ouchy ship
which is unlocked and still flyable a
little too convenient but whatever we'll
call that a nitpick but then Ray senses
her boyfriend through the forest and
dashes off to meet him in the middle of
the desert alone no one even tries to
stop her strike one
Chewie goes the follower with the dagger
but the Knights of Ren are already here
on the ground how so they captured
Chewie but ignore ray and ouchy ship
strike two
then ray plays chicken in the desert
with kylo ship and strike three where ad
we were all scratching our heads when we
saw this shit in the teaser trailer but
even I thought the movie would you know
try to set it up but it doesn't not even
a little ray walks out onto this desert
to stare down kylo for no possibly good
reason and kylo inexplicably bears down
on her like he's mowing down pedestrians
who came him lip and GTA but you don't
run people over when you're fucking
flying and I thought Kyle wanted to turn
her to the dark side
not into roadkill I'm going to find you
and I'm gonna turn you to the dark side
ray tries flipping because that's a good
trick
well he's fucking dead then does what he
does second best
screaming helplessly as he watches his
friends be taken away hey got Joey thank
God
ray has other plans now I know some of
you might be tempted to say that holding
a moving spaceship in place is a MarySue
move and you might even cite evidence
like Yoda struggling to hold up some
pipes that one time and well yeah but
you guys forget there was a character in
a video game that force pulled an entire
Star Destroyer from the sky hey that's
not even canon you might say so what
about when baby Yoda stopped the
charging rhino and he's just an infant
oh I get it just because they're dudes
probably they don't get the hate ray
does sexist
well Kyle fucking lived somehow feeling
left out he enters into this game of
Tuggle force didn't work out so hot the
last time
[Music]
something's gotta give but then
something magical happens ray
accidentally kills Chewie by sharding
lightning yeah a lightning shark she
strains herself so hard that the
darkside energy she didn't know she was
holding in spurts out and blows her
friend into big brown hairy chunks more
Thai fighters show up in Rey skedaddle
even though she can blow them all up
with super lightning now Rey has a
little cry about killing Chewie because
it means she's destined to be the Sith
empress or something
typical historic but maybe there's
something to this did ray perhaps
secretly loathe Chewie for are always
chaperoning her we all know about how
she feels about guys holding her hand
maybe that quiet contempt translated to
a couple bajillion bolts by accident who
knows not even a minute later
yeah Chewie who was on another transport
ship all along everybody just missed
that actually Finn did see which ship
Chewie was loaded on to and just
misdirected everybody way to go Finn
well the gang is at a loss for what to
do after losing the dagger
Threepio reminds them he already read
the dagger so duh they don't need it
true inscription they head to some place
called Koji me to find some guy named
Babu Frick who can rewire Threepio to
say the SIF translation one catch it'll
wipe all of his memory no one cares
on the way bb-8 reactivates a droid on
the ship whose name I don't remember and
the character is not important enough to
include on the Wikipedia page the Droid
act scared and Rey reasons it was
mistreated someone treated him badly
this is directly after the scene where
the group decide without any hesitancy
or reluctance to have Threepio wipe for
the Sith translation a complete what two
terribly dangerous and sinful act
performed on waiting right let's do that
we're all in this
to the end except for you tan head drink
the fucking bleach bit on Cugini the
gang is almost immediately found by some
helmeted lady named Zuri bliss but she's
actually very pissed because PO once
stood her up to join the resistance
yeah sorry everyone looks like pose a
cyst had Zoe tries to turn the man with
her men but Rea beats everybody up with
ease and holds Ori a saber points
szura's response is to say she likes ray
nothing you care but I think you're OK
no no no before you marry sayers pop out
of the fucking woodwork about Mary Sue's
are instantly liked by everyone they
meet this is actually a sneaky boy by
his Orie to lower Ray's guard and it
works because race shuts off her
lightsaber without zouri lowering her
gun just kidding Zoe thinks better of
frying this girl's brains out on the
street and takes them to Babu we make
him translate it he won't remember
anything
I feel kind of bad for Threepio here
we're doing their Threepio taking one
last look sad
and my friends they don't consider him a
friend and he's flat-out a nuisance to
Poe this scene could have had a little
gravitas or a real motion to it if just
one of the characters voiced the
slightest bit of reservations were
killing their friend but they don't no
one at all speaks up not one there must
be another way we make him translate it
he won't remember anything let's do that
Threepio is merely a tool to them and
nothing more
[Music]
yep they rounded out the supposedly
emotional scene with a character
straight up saying sad don't think I've
ever seen that before well the procedure
works through Pio translates where the
chaos gem is Annie's own no tragic music
no sadness no tears just you up okay
that's gonna be a problem
true friendship and if you still felt a
pang of loss for Threepio don't worry
they take that the fuck back - speaking
of chewy ray can feel chewy alive all
the way up on Kyle's Star Destroyer begs
the question how didn't she noticed she
didn't actually snuff out chew his life
force here mmm
must have slipped under her radar the
gang heads up into the Star Destroyer
with some super special get on any
destroyer free coin that Zora just gives
poe because she creamed her space suit
when he gave her this look want to come
with me after parking for free their
brilliant plan is to run out onto the
landing Bay completely I'm skewered and
shoot everything that moves it works and
no not because Ray is wearing soup la
armor or anything Luke Skywalker did the
same shit
what a hothead I guess there aren't any
cameras so sure
right all you want it's okay that we're
here you're relieved that we're here
we're looking for a prisoner and his
belongings all right so go ahead and
tell them to release Chuy or not the
cameras hold up so there are cameras but
when shooting them alert anyone
monitoring them great c'mon the dock is
on the ship we need it
Why What feeding Oh a feeling the last
time she had a feeling she ran off to
play with Kyle oh and supposedly killed
chewy so maybe you guys should try to
stop her I'll meet you back at the house
ray you can't we're not
stormtroopers are so fucking useless
holy shit
one does manage to cinch bow in the arm
though and that's enough to get them
captured Rey bust into Kyle's room to
smell his bedsheets but it's caught in
the act as kylo force calls her again
right Kyle Busch's raid to remember her
parents undoing all of her hard hard
work for pressing her memories of them
sure your memory hard work like waiting
all of our life on jakku for her parents
to come back just to see them again
we're jumping into a dark side fool to
discover who they really were only now
that Kyle Lohse whispering bitter
something's in her ear can she handle
the truth about her parents obviously
but yeah her parents were nobodies by
choice to hide ray from Palpatine
because she inherited his power has his
granddaughter Oh finally it's that
Palpatine midi-chlorian count coursing
through her veins and now that we can
explain Rey's incredible aptitude for
the force well she can't be a Mary Sue
checkmate racist she's a pal PUD
he tried to stop this perhaps years from
now people will see but it's not yet
that day
I never lie to you
your parents were no one well no you
said they sold her for drinking money so
they didn't really value her highly did
they like why would they even try to
sell her if they were protecting her
there had to have been a couple other
options before the hit indentured
servitude on a desert planet may be an
alien orphanage on a slightly more
temperate planet perhaps a space nunnery
he'll drop her off I can't so bite at
least those child slaves probably get
air conditioning and horse dogs by the
way I'm the spy no really I knew it
tell him we find out spy can't hide from
the fried but wait wouldn't killing the
supposed suspect make pride look super
suspect not if you don't think about it
Kawa proposes to ray once again and goes
on about something called ad ad which is
a bond in the force that makes to one
essentially ran kylo are destined to
make the reloj ship sail so he's saying
this should team up and take down palps
with their combined strength and you
know what provided he's telling the
truth for once and he is not a bad idea
Palpatine is the bigger threat at the
moment with the Death Star Fleet and it
can be reasonably assumed by Ray that
kylo can reach him so maybe just go dark
side for a little bit for the greater
good that certainly would be the more
interesting choice for her character
winning it abandoning the light to save
it not only that but it make your
visions of a sudden and inexplicable
turn to the dark side a little more
credible than you no not at all in just
about every way I can think of ray
temporarily going to the dark side makes
for a better more cohesive story so she
jumps away into the Falcon and skips off
then crashes into the Endor moon and
that's what's left at the Death Star
good luck finding her chaos gem kids
works cut out for you
oh no no no no no no
yeah
yeah ray uses the dagger which has been
cut into the shape of the Death Star
wreckage to determine the location of
the Kaos gem against the Death Star
wreckage god damn another prime brain
hurting movement think about this
someone cut up a knife Wyatt this spot
at this specific angle
how did ray know to come exactly here
anyway when was this dagger maeín how's
the death star wreckage stayed perfectly
structurally intact in all this time
since and in ocean fuck how is there
even this much of a death star chunk
left intact after an explosion like this
does reactor fuel not melt steel beams
no we got to stop thinking we're getting
into the red but how did this planet
even fucking survive getting hit by
something so gargantuan and
indestructible my brain I can't stop it
[Music]
after busting the Falcon our protagonist
can't reach the death star without
braving these wicked waves so they start
repairs with some new character named
Jonah and her gang
Jonah reveals she was a first-order
conscript just like Finn
so they bond over that despite that Finn
has coldly murdered countless conscripts
like her he could just as well kill her
too for all the purpose she really has
in this story Rey impetuous as ever
heads out and effortlessly Braves the
treacherous waters by herself she sails
now which isn't a MarySue move by the
way she trained her whole life for this
with all that doom surfing ray finds the
emperor's old throne room and hey-o the
chaos gems right next door no one not a
single person must've thought to check
up on those Death Star leftovers in all
these years
Rey is the first scavenger to scavenged
Emperor's throne room that's bullshit
and I don't believe it
Darkrai makes an appearance and flashes
some of that good old british dental
work for a scare
but it's no biggie the moment raised
attention shifts she disappears the
implication here is that dark trey is a
figment of Ray's imagination so if
that's the case did ray invent this
folding saber design guess we found
something ray isn't very good at kylo
operates in because he must have had a
death star shaped dagger - then he
crushes Ray's chaos gem leaving himself
as the only option for ready to stop
Palpatine now she'll take his hand right
for the greater good or not playing
really hard to get Paolo beats her in
their saber fight because gah rants do
this is precisely the moments that Leia
force calls her son Kyle can't hear her
very wall and their nandi add connection
but ray thinks he's calling a younger
woman
gets mad and stabs him in the chest
while he's distracted then Leia dies my
brain hurt again it sounds like Leia
uses the last of her life force to ring
up Kyle Oh to reach her son now take all
the strength she has been and in the
wildest coincidence ever it ran out just
as ray sucker savored her boy but that's
not how I interpreted it on my first
watch
I thought Leia connected herself to kylo
through the force and the sudden trauma
of her son getting skewered overloaded
that connection and killed her from the
way the scene is edited doesn't it kind
of look like Leia reacts to the stab
I choose to believe ray killed Leia it's
funnier that way ray has instant regret
heals kylo then steals a ship can be
neatly parked next to them which somehow
wasn't washed away by the giant crashing
waves I'm not sure why I'm even poor in
the show and anymore ray abandons
everyone so everyone returns to base
rendered useless
kylo sees Han but Hans not a ghost you
got that it's just kylos delusion but
the one I have to do but I don't know if
I have the strength to do it
[Music]
my son is dead
kalo forgives kylo for cheap shotting
the real han and that's it
kylo is good now that's all there is to
it kylo then throws away it's extremely
useful weapon Death Star Destroyer
destroys Kazemi zouri and Babu teleport
Leia makes pogge eneral hold o cry Rey
flees the island world Andrey does
Luke's tlj arc in about 4 minutes
[Music]
ghost Luke pops in and gives Rey Leia's
lightsaber she's already got his is
brain gonna be given everyone stop she
gets all your sabers she gets your
fucking ships the only thing this bitch
has her own as a stick a fucking stick a
fox Ted Ray gets over herself magically
chaos gem survives fire magically ghost
Luke lifts his ship out of the water
magically ship waterlogged for years
just works magically ray goes to X Golan
sense the resistance the flight path
resistance plans to blow up the Death
Star fleets because fleet can't go up it
can't go up they don't fly now well
apparently not without a nav tower to
tell them how okay a single enormous ly
convenient oversight that the good guys
can exploit obliterate the bad guys
nothing new to Star Wars an exhaust port
a shield generator a woman and this time
of direction ah maybe it's me but craft
built for flight should be able to lift
off and keep lifting I got it it's
because these people have been stuck
underneath the planet's surface building
these things they probably never even
seen up without a ceiling before not
even a hangar door no fucking wonder
they're confused
no shields and no way out why don't we
blow it up it's always a way to do that
we think hitting the cannons might take
knock the main reactors we need to put
some haul dough maneuvers not a bad idea
Mary
if one relatively tiny resistant ship
can light speed through a mega destroyer
and take out a fleet of like 20 other
destroyers then surely there are some
resistance folks willing to go full
jihad for the cause we need to put some
hold on the new vism do some real damage
come on that move is one in a million
never tell me the odds one in the
million a great shot kid that was one in
a million what a flyboy Luke was betting
the survival of the resistance on such
bad odds
[Music]
hold Oh would be beside herself
you have bet the survival of the
resistance on bad odds and put us all at
risk but you know what these odds aren't
even that bad all things considered
succeed just once and who knows how many
ships will be taken out in such close
proximity don't be so quick to dismiss
the man Finn it could work but now you
got me wondering how do you even mess up
the whole dome maneuver you just point
your ship at something and punch it
right so simple even the worst Admiral
of all time could do it and if you don't
succeed in crashing the first time try
try again it's not like hyperdrives
necessarily need time between jumps
anymore just Lightspeed skip until you
collided with something and take out
everything around it fortune favors the
bold Oh instead Finn's plan is to have
Lando and Chewie call off for help
throughout the galaxy Leia's call when
fully ignored last time but this time
they figured Lando has some actual
charisma to make it work Luke standing
down the first order by himself wasn't
enough to motivate all these aliens to
get off their asses but a booty call
from Panda
so Lando will bring the galaxy's
horniest EXA coal and have them shoot up
the Death Star cannons which in turn
will blow up the destroyers well that's
a video game weak spot if I've ever seen
one
they even glow red the resistance zip
off 2x ago and make it just behind ray
somehow they make a beeline for the nav
tower but like the final order switches
to another NAB tower on a Star Destroyer
the resistance then makes a beeline for
that one and they drop Finn Jonna and
some nobodies on top of the destroyer to
let them run for it on horses in
response the final order just banks the
ship a bit and slides them off
[Music]

Part 2

something you think it is impossible to
produce the video in a timely manner no
shit ray finds Palpatine but guess what
this was all according to his plan
everything is proceeding as I have
foreseen
well actually I never what you did I
only pretended to send assassins after
you repeatedly so that you would come to
kill me so I could possess your body and
be empress of all the galaxy alright
break time let's examine palps master
plan starting from the end of Return of
the Jedi
- now I'm assuming perhaps being
portrayed by Vader was an error link is
corrected but death didn't stick so
palps phasmid off the Death Star and hit
on ex ago by whatever SIF technology he
gruesome pre-ripped snoke's and released
one into the wild
Snoke went after Han and Leia's son kylo
presumably because palps was puppeting
him to do so and if Palpatine is Snoke
that means palps also created the first
order called crazy resources together to
hollow out a planet in which they
installed a super Death Star ten times
the size of the previous Death Star's in
total secrecy then used the star killer
to blow up the Republic in one fell
swoop insanely impressive shame about
losing the star killer because of the
second most traitors bitch to ever live
but fortunately Palpatine didn't keep
his crazy amount of eggs in one
hollowed-out planet in fact the first
order still had enough star destroyers
left over to take over all the major
systems within weeks and palps didn't
stop there in his back pocket he had
another fleets
all outfitted with miniaturized Death
Star cannons not taking any chances this
go-around palps probably didn't account
for the most traders bitch to ever live
but with her help the first order
annihilated most of the resistance with
just a handful Star Destroyers leading
to a near total victory and after Luke
Skywalker's apparent suicide there was
no one left to threaten his rule
Palpatine had one totally and completely
except he succumbed to the horny some
time before getting chucked down death
star - palps had gotten a little sheep
up and gone to pound town without
wrapping his saber
halp said a son junior who was so
freaked out he came from the ball sack
of a ball sack that he ran off junior
found a nice lady and had a daughter Rae
Palpatine the inheritor of her
grandfather's power grand palps had an
assassin hunt little ray down to capture
her alive but I guess she's immune to
tracking Bob's or whatever and now she
up and killed the only people who knew
where she was and got himself killed
whoopsie-daisy luckily for palps the
first order would later go after some
Rando who just happened to be hanging
out and raised desert on jakku so ray
could coincidentally meet a droid and
the deserting first order stormtrooper
and be whisked away on a whirlwind
adventure that was actually part of a
ray Loewy prophecy to bring ray together
with kylo Ren and a force bond called ad
ad hold up dyad
ignorance of this dyad Palpatine sent
loverboy to kill ray even though he
wanted her alive but it was all an
elaborate wingman ploy to set kalo up
with his own granddaughter so that Rey
could get cause chaos jamming come
directly to Palpatine where he could
reveal to race she was his nobody all
along you out of his power
dormady her bond with cows because they
shared a paopu through his kids and they
had just forgotten Palpatine used to set
up playdates for them on island world
and for the final stroke of his master
plan Palpatine will merge with Rey and
kylo to become master reaon Nort then
find and become one with kingdom hearts
and that's it today that convoluted if
you pay attention now please pay no
attention to how calgis Texico after
losing two ships the first order and his
chaos gym what though ray and Kyle will
fight off the Knights of Ren together Oh
ray even tall boards to savor to kylo
like he forgot to bring a pencil for
today's test oh now we know what
happened to Houdini's knife the Knights
are no challenge to them whatsoever yet
afterward Palpatine still sends them to
their knees and sucks out their life
force because that's something he can do
their force bond provides him enough
energy to be restored to his former
glory so he Nix is his transition and
dives into the Fountain of Youth when
he's done he throws kylo down a hole
then electrifies the sky because that's
something he can do the Lightning is so
discerning that it only affects the good
guys but none of them explode or suffer
critical damage or collide with each
other or the gigantic destroyers so no
biggie it's just another light show ray
washes on in horror and once again calls
out to the past Jedi and in her time of
need
they finally answer
and here we are at last the final battle
of the Skywalker trilogy Palpatine
versus Palpatine with the last Skywalker
sent straight to hell tallip starts
zapping race saber and says raise epic
response fuck she really is the Jedi
avatar it was supposed to be a joke but
now it's a whole thing every fucking
time I swear they're lifting imagery and
elements straight from the show to an
underground bunker as an all-out battle
rages above the good guys on a tight
time limit and must exploit the bad guys
as weakness a confrontation of family
dual wielding swords the Lightning
redirection all that's missing are the
accompanying tension good writing and
soul really what the fuck am I looking
at here a minute ago palps was cooking
the sky without a care inside this world
but now I can't get past the saber
oh fuck two lightsabers well golly he
never stood a chance so if I got this
right if you wanted to Fleck lightning
betterer
just add another saber mace pick up one
from one of your fallen comrades oh well
just didn't rain as hard as Rey to know
better I'm not even sure how he was
granted the rank of Jedi Master to tell
you the truth because it's totally
possible to learn this power and not
just from a su Luke over man didn't even
need a saber you blocked that shit with
his own body
ray electrocutes palps with his own
lightning Palpatine doesn't take his
lightning as well as Luke did though and
so he explodes for real this time
promise but he doesn't even transfer
into Rey like he said he would probably
because she's dead
kylo climbs back out of the hole because
falling down an endless pit doesn't mean
jack shit in this galaxy he sidles on up
to Rey uses some force he'll and would
you look at that she really is the
Palpatine I heard I know I don't want to
rely on any reductive labels here but
I've noticed a lot of Gary Stu's like to
come back from the dead
Kirito neo Harry Potter Sonic Christ so
you know what does that make Rey a
female Gary Stu do we have a word ray
and Kyle finally shared their first kiss
but race sucks out his fucking soul
through it
here I felt a great disturbance in the
force as if a million voices suddenly
cried out in anger who would not be
silenced
[Applause]
Kyllo pieces out because he's a true
Jedi
unlike Rey who stuck around to be
revived like a Sith finding the rest
take out that tower Lando brings the
cavalry and they kill everybody hey a
little trivia for you did you know this
set eternal fleet seen in hashtag Star
Wars hashtag the rise of Skywalker was
created by Sitz cultists uh neck sigil
who indoctrinated excells population
with Sith values and raised and trained
their children to become officers
mechanics and soldiers for the final
order hey hey no need for that mister
would keep fields fuckin trivia now this
might just be me but I think it's a
little better that the resistance kill
faceless goons of evil and not helpless
people indoctrinated into a cult as
children little details like that kind
of suck out the magic you know
there was once a simpler time when for
example stormtroopers were just
straightforward bad guys and taking them
out was morally uncomplicated but now
they're kidnapped his children and
brainwashed into becoming remorseless
killers the heroes aren't just killing
bad guys anymore now they're getting rid
of damaged goods even though any one of
these broken people could be another
finn with just the right nudge you're
good now now they'll never see the light
after being taken out of sanitation and
put on an execution squad
it didn't have to be this way but it'd
be with the eternal fleet gone the good
guys promptly mopped the floor with the
first order across the galaxy and that's
it the resistance wins all this time
they just needed to get off their asses
and do it the resistance get to
celebrating back on jungle world hugging
kissing and completely ignoring the
second order retreating to the shadows
biding its time into the sequel sequel
trilogy race mix oh is moved on these
lesbians are dropped harder for Middle
Eastern theatres than their rooftops and
Finn finally lands the man of his dreams
warned she gives Chewie the metal he was
snubbed for in a new hope and he's like
where'd you get that and she's like a
good question for another time Lando has
the touching scene with Jonna vary from
general the goal system what about you
kid
well let's find out
maybe more than touching Andray group
hugs her friends all's well that ends
well
such a shame Leia died before she could
see this by Ray's hand ray goes the
Tatooine and buries Luke and Leia's
lightsabers in the sand as Uncle Anakin
try spinning in his space grave it's
okay though Ray's got her own lightsaber
now it's yellow
an old lady somehow sneaks up on Rey
from in front of her in the desert and
asks Rey who she is
raivo ray home
rayray Skywalker
[Music]
you watch her gaping mouth who are you
I'm ray
hey ho nice it what is this even trying
to imply that Luke and Leia or more like
parents to Rey than our actual parents
yeah okay they weren't really around and
pretty much solder into slavery but they
still died protecting her is it because
she took in kylos essence so she's
basically all that's left of the
Skywalker's is this JJ's way of saying
no one's ever really gone right
Skywalker Rey bullshitter is who you are
girl you Anna Skywalker you're a
Palpatine and even if recently means to
continue the Skywalker legacy or
whatever then why did she come to
Tatooine to literally burry the remnants
of the Skywalker legacy and no less real
Luke's family was killed woman what are
you doing if they absolutely had to pull
this bullshit it should have been raised
solo who are you people
I don't have one I'm just right solo han
was the first ot character ray met and
unlike Luke he actually wanted to take
her under his wing perform a job I'm
thinking about it he personally went to
the mega Death Star and helped save her
dumb runaway ass and now thanks to the
solo movie ray could have taken on the
solo name since it's only a placeholder
now anyway she could have transformed it
to mean something more than orphan solo
a name for a man with no people could
live on with some girl Han randomly
connected with it's like poetry
maybe not only that but the Man Ray fell
in love with was a solo Ben solo died
literally giving her his life force
she's half full of solo cycled energy
the reloj stands might have even
forgiven JJ if he pulled the Titanic
Dawson Dawson rose
instead she's Rey Skywalker because
fuckit Skywalker's the central name and
Star Wars race dog walker you get to be
a Skywalker you get to be a Skywalker
everyone gets to be a Skywalker
there's been no one for so long who are
you
I'll tell you who she is she's mah ray
[Music]
[Music]
it's done my verdict Star Wars the rise
of Skywalker was everything everything
that the sequel fans deserved you know
what I fucking deserve though an apology
TFA apologist Scott rebel school you all
made such a ho blue when I called Kai
Louis it apprentice a fucking Sith
apprentice a perfectly reasonable in
firms to make back then but no you are
how can kylo be a Sith apprentice if
snoke's not a Sith Lord no one ever said
Snoke was a sieve
Gollum even said he's not a Sith Lord do
you even watch the stuff you talk about
and yeah I made an assumption with no
real backing so I admitted my fault kind
of but turns the fuck yeah Snoke was
Palpatine all along Palpatine a sick
fucking shoot nay not a Sethe all this
Seth Carlo was the set that set
apprentice to have ever fucking Seth
fuck you I was right so there are some
nice things to say about the rise of
Skywalker
like Palpatine's Redemption arc I
definitely appreciated it more than
kylos by his own power and determination
Palpatine created the one true avatar of
all the Jedi electrocuted all the Sith
himself and double handedly restored
balance to the force
Sidious was the real chosen one all
along think about it he could have
easily appointed a Death Star laser at
planets across the galaxy but he didn't
he chose not to because he sent his
fortnight message out before letting his
fleet get into position to be able to do
anything it was he who gave ray the
Chaos gem by manipulating kylo and who
put Han in kylos head to turn him to the
light
if you have a fire inside your head good
guy Palpatine what else huh yes TR OS
glorifies abusing women yes well this
article is only about how reloj is the
poster coupling of an abusive
relationship at a one-off Rikuo the
article tries to back up this assertion
with citations and evidence from the
movie and shit but hey come on no need
we can tell from how many women really
really liked it and what a happy ending
it all was the galaxy saved again for
now the main OT characters murdered and
dead and Rey even got a boyfriend for
almost 10 seconds
JJ you knocked it out into a bark JJ and
KK the dream team another happy landing
now there's all this stuff about how
Disney might have fucked JJ and his
creative vision over and I don't really
want to put down anyone's concern over
that but this is the mouse we're talking
about yes I'll do it
number one they redid like at least a
third of rogue one because they happily
let this goofball make a gritty war
documentary movie then decided the tone
wasn't light-hearted enough they're that
fucking stupid these ain't people with a
vision this isn't George Lucas hustling
to make a clean sci-fi fantasy movie at
a time that wasn't especially friendly
to the idea Disney at the time even
turned Lucas down this is a mega
corporation pushing out sad imitations
of popular movies because they can
because there were theme park billions
to be made with so many fingers in this
pie there was exactly zero zero chance
that these movies could come out the
other end unmolested
just like Disney's child actors not to
say I ever had faith in JJ's vision
anyway I maintain that the force awakens
as a soft reboot of Star Wars could
never have been the foundation for
something good all right JJ
we need a main character for our sequel
trilogy they already had a half orphan
boy on a desert planet who tries to
spend another half orphan boy on a
desert planet who tries rescuing his
twin
we need something fresh I've got it so
let's do a total orphan on a desert
planet but female
and she doesn't even try that's
incredible JJ fucking gold man take it
take a llama now I ain't saying soft
reboots of movies can't work of course
of course they just almost always don't
and sure 90% of anything is shit anyway
but 90% of recyclables would honestly be
better off in the trick
Rey was never gonna live up to both
Anakin and Luke so making her a reboot
of Anakin and Luke was just mean yeah
it's fun to call her a Mary Sue since
the examples are just so comically
numerous the force is not a power you
have it's not about lifting rocks
and because it upsets the monogamously
challenged viking hates women so much
holy shit but MarySue or not though she
is ray needed some kind of fire in her
to hold a candle to anakin or Luke
instead her writers completely bypassed
the character development when she
needed it most in TFA Rey is way too
blank a slate too disconnected from
everything an empty vessel to shuffle
the audience from flashy spectacle Laden
scene to the next second only being a
yawning mouthpiece to gush over the
already established beloved characters
yo han Solo I used to be she needed more
than that you can make her the most
capable little lady in all the galaxy
but you also have to make her a person
hanging in a sequel trilogy on a
complete fake has only exemplified how
fake the rest of the shit has been
overdone stakes unintimidating goofy bad
guys
geriatric fanservice ruined
relationships senseless character death
for shock value even Luke is a coward
who hides from his friends and family
after failing them that's all from TFA
because he must have been cut off from
the force tend to right unless he felt a
bajillion voices suddenly crying out
from five whole last planets and what
hit the snooze button on him he sure
didn't rush on over after feeling his
friend take this
Luke should have shown up right here to
catch his lightsaber
you should have felt the destruction of
the Republic and traced it to Starkiller
base to assist rain taking down kinda
low at least Mark Hamill would have been
cool done I'll tell you where I thought
I came in in the forest when the
lightsaber look like this and flies off
I said oh what a great ninja uh
ray college she hasn't even been the
date above her training
I joked in my tlj video that Luke was
just suffering from amnesia but at this
point it's perhaps the only explanation
that absolves the guy who wasn't pulling
a Yoda or an obi-wan he wasn't
protecting anyone all I see is a
cowardly asshole waiting to die but came
to this island to die
of course JJ did intend for the
interpretation in TFA but it's the same
as with Lando and TR or less it didn't
matter how the Luke reveal fit into the
story so much as it mattered that there
was a Luke reveal then Ryan came along
to torpedo off JJ's hard work and
subvert all our expectations by taking
that cowardly asshole and doubling the
fuck down on them go away if you want to
be a nit prick like me you can even
point out that Luke still gives ray the
cold shoulder in TR OS up until she went
to his watery grave haha maybe it's
better to say these movies deserve each
other
George I owe you an apology for bashing
the prequels as hard as I did is what I
would say if you hadn't sold them to the
white slavers all of Star Wars films
they were your kids yeah well they are
right you know I I loved him I created
them I'm very intimately involved in
them and obviously to know them
matter of fact George told Star Wars to
the slavers to protect Star Wars I
really wanted to put the company
somewhere and a larger entity which
would protect it
ironic or was it absolutely blog about
what we're doing and how we're messing
things up or did you leave star wars
with these corporate hacks because you
knew they'd not get dry inevitably
shitting out movies far far worse than
the prequels could ever have been
all those fanboys who yelled at you and
called you terrible they knew nothing
they needed to see it for themselves the
destruction that only soulless greed can
rot then they'd be sorry then they'd
come crawling back but too little too
goddamn late so you forced unleash the
rat on Star Wars and made off like a
bandit to vindication ranch what advice
do you have for Kathy good luck the
artist really does win in the long run
but for me it's depressing to see with
this wholesome adventure story albeit
also a giant cash cow has become just
another vehicle for Disney to advertise
their theme parks pretend like I'm in
though it's not even really right to
call these movies fan fiction do these
honestly look like the products of fans
fan fictions often made for free out of
passion and admiration for the original
work or for porn somehow these movies
are way more perverse and fan fiction
writing is probably better somehow
Palpatine returned but I'm just
repeating myself at this point been
repeating myself since rogue 1 that's
enough out of me about Star Wars I think
for good I can't do another one of these
in any way once Disney copyrights Winnie
the chew over there the happiest
oligarchy on earth we'll make sure that
so see you in the next non Star Wars
related video maybe sometime this year
if not have a happy year of the rat
what's left of it
you
oh hey there kids it's time for the
shameless shekel shakedown I finally got
some merch if you somehow still have
disposable income after the kouf heard
around the world because I sure fucking
don't so check that out if you want link
below and shit all proceeds go to black
life matters

I think we need to start reversing our approach to identifying woke Hollyweird material.

What we do now is aasume Hollyweird's music, movies and TV shows are not woke until we receive enough evidence to prove otherwise.

What we should do is assume everything coming out of Hollyweird is woke until they prove to us it's not.

"Straight white man bad" from here on out folks. It's time we found other ways to entertain ourselves. Movies, TV and music are not only all made BY far leftists but they are made FOR far leftists.

what's going on Jeremy here from the
quartering hand it would appear we are
unable to have any new movie come out
without a bunch of anger and controversy
it's in fact part of the marketing plan
for a lot of these companies I would
argue and modern cinema to me is a
watered-down lack of inspiration meeting
giant Chinese investment equaling
terrible end product that's what that's
what I'm used to now especially
big-budget films now dune coming out I
know it's very very important to a lot
of people although I can't call myself
like a dune super fan I was actually
looking forward to this movie to help
kind of get me more into the lore
although I probably will get read up
myself my wife enjoys it me I've never
really got into it not for any
particular reason but is it I mean is it
woke I don't know Sharon Duncan Bruce
are confirmed as race and gender swapped
Liat leat kinds in dune film plus heavy
other indicators that film will be woke
okay so before I get into not it's
activist sponsor I just want to say a
common misconception is that because the
character is now let's say gender
swapped that it's automatically woke I
don't know if that's necessarily the
truth however when you pair that with
other information when you hear how
these Hollywood producers are talking in
these particular cases you know it's
time for a woman it's time for a female
Ghostbusters that we need a strong
powerful Terminator Wallman yeah
everyone loves Ocean's eleven but now
let's do let's have a woman do it the
it's not just that but what it really is
is when it comes from people that have a
history of talking about things like
representation and under representation
and you know all these other type of
things
what is the motivating factor for the
race and gender swap if it's simply to
push a your political narrative then I
think you can argue that the film has
some work elements to it does it
necessarily mean the films gonna be bad
no I mean I'd say the Mandalorians
pretty woke but it's pretty darn good
there are a lot of shows that our woke
in new production it's just easier to
notice when they're swapping things in
in an old book or old Canon you know we
see this you know Star Wars is woke but
in a weird way where it's forced you can
have a diverse cast and not have a bad
film it's it's I think the writers you
know you can look at Doctor Who right oh
we just slap slap a womman on it's gonna
be great didn't turn out that way did it
the upcoming dude in film will feature a
race and gender swapped character not
only will the character feature his race
and gender swap but comments from the
cast and director indicate the film will
be woke the character has previously
been by the way this is via bonding into
comics calm the character had previously
been portrayed by Max von Sydow and
David Lynch's in 1984 in David Lynch's
1984 adaptation of dune and Carol dole
Bri portrayed the character in the
sci-fi channels 2000 miniseries
adaptation of the book
Vanity Fair confirmed the gender race
swap sharing an image of brucer as a
character Frank Herbert Dean's author
described kinds in the book as tall thin
long sandy hair and a sparse beard
the keys were that fathomless blue
within blue under thick brows wait the
eyes Jesus the eyes were that fathomless
blue within blue under thick brows he
further described the character his long
hair and beard were must his blue eyes
without whites and darkness under heavy
brows he added wisps of Sandy hair
protruded from it matched by sparse
beard and thick brows beneath it okay
yes we know he was a man all right Ben
any fair that claims that the gender
swap is a quote intriguing change and
director Dennis Villanueva updated
that's the--that's thing updated is that
it feels like a weird propaganda term
Bruce rented the human being manages to
basically keep the peace amongst many
people women are very good at that so
why can't kinds be a woman why shouldn't
she be a woman because the original
source material said so I mean is it
that hard to understand it's like if the
original character was a woman would you
have swapped her to a man this is one of
the things that these like
intellectually dishonest people who will
often do response videos to my videos on
this this is why people ask all the time
Jeremy respond to this guy respond to
this person there's no point there
they're not taking my point in a
intellectually fair way and they're
really not interested in understanding
where I'm coming from so but this is
their point right like so what so what
it's just a one big deal don't you like
women what don't you like the blacks of
course I do in fact I love all women of
all colors and all men but the fact of
the matter is the original source
material says it's a man and you change
it to a woman and there are none that I
can think of cases of this going in the
reverse in Hollywood which leads me to
believe that this is absolutely on
purpose the director would discuss the
film describing his narrative as a
critique of capitalism
he explained no matter what you believe
earth is changing and we will have to
adapt
he added that's why I think dune this
book was written in the 20th century it
was a dis important of the reality of
the oil and capitalism and exploration
the over exploitation exploitation the
over exploitation of Earth he concluded
today things are just worse it's
becoming it's a coming-of-age story but
it's also a call for action from the
youth good lord if this is what
you think your film is doing I'm going
to guess that it's awful um Anthony
benzotine writes think Greta Thun Berg
she only she's a Jedi with a diploma
from Hogwarts ah that all sounds
terrible it's like take something that's
awful and then and then make it two more
kinds of awful he added he also added
that detailed changes to Baron Harkonnen
played by stellan skarsgård his ex his
he explained as much as I deeply love
the book I felt that Baron was flirting
very often with caricature he continued
and tried to bring him more into
dimension that's why I brought in
stellen stellen is something his eyes
you feel there's something thinking
thinking thinking that has tension and
calculating aside deep in the eyes I can
testify and can be quite frightening his
film will be will also expand lady
Jessica's role Paul's mother Jessica is
a member of the kind so many words I
can't pronounce correctly of the Ben
guesser it and it's played by Rebecca
Ferguson Ferguson described her
character she's a mother she's a
concubine she's a soldier she then went
on to describe the character will be
different from the book always a great
move always a great movie a great move
in film Denis was very respectful of
Frank's work in the book but the quality
of the arcs for much of the women have
been brought up to a new level there
were some shifts he did and they are
beautifully portrayed now again you can
take the gender swap at face value and
say oh this isn't necessarily an
occasion that the movies gonna be woke
but then once you've layering all this
other stuff you know the director thinks
they know better than the author they're
changing characters are changing arcs
sounds a lot like Star Wars sounds a lot
like any modern day woke cinema that is
just trash the villain wave does not
does note that creating dune is the most
difficult thing he's done in his life
his exploit
he explains it's a book that Tao tackles
Paul
religion ecology spirituality and with a
lot of characters he then concludes I
think that's why it's so difficult
honestly that's by far the most
difficult thing I've done in my life
the first part is expected to debut in
December
why is doing first images are so
controversial I mean this is perfect in
the exclusive first look doing images
published by Vanity Fair got a chance to
see shallow minutes Paul as well as full
costume for the characters like Lady
Jessica and Duke Leto and more some
people seem disappointed by what they
saw deeming muted color palette and more
realistic focused realist focused style
to be an ill fit for Herbert's creation
the consuit costuming is very simple and
militaristic in style while the
landscapes of many of which were shot in
southern Jordan and the United Arab
Emirates are reminiscent of the sand
worlds of Star Wars if fans were
expecting an altogether more fantastical
glimpse into the dune into this new dune
then they would have inevitably been
disappointed a major complaint made by
many was that dune did not seem at all
fun but it does need to be and it's is
it does it need to be an is it supposed
to be fun well I don't know I think most
movies should be fun in some way is
worth noting that the film isn't
scheduled to release until December so
the tiny glimpses of video effects
seeing these first images are
representative only of a sliver of the
work done so far for anyone hoping to
see one of the San worms first look
they'll have to wait till the first
trailer at the very least David Lynch's
dune is undoubtedly a more fantastical
approach to the material then it seems
like Villanueva's approach style will be
stylistically speaking there are polar
opposites as filmmakers on an aesthetic
level just compared the stark minimalism
of a rival to the sinister surrealism of
Mulholland Drive I mean generally again
when when expectations aren't met from
the original fandom you're going to
start off on the wrong foot I'm not
saying that you have to bend the knee to
them on everything but to me it's also
in dicta indicative of a director or
writing
team that really doesn't care about the
initial fandom they just expect you to
go and pay to see their movie dune is
not necessarily off the table for me yet
but I have less riding on it than most I
don't have a deep lore and love for dune
so I won't feel as wrong with some of
these character changes I will say
however out of solidarity if the
original dune fandom doesn't like it I
probably won't be seeing it in the
theater and ultimately it might go down
as another one of those films where the
director thought they knew better than
the original fandom that's more than
anything the dangerous move and
ultimately it can work out I thought
that Witcher TV series did pretty well
it was loyal in many ways even though it
was pretty much a story about powerful
women it still felt like a good show and
it still felt like it was loyal to The
Witcher lore and ultimately even with
all the swapping the show to me was a 7
out of 10
I can't mark it down because of certain
walk factors they didn't get annoying at
times even my wife said to me at one
point it's like every man and this it's
movie a weakling they're in this show
but ultimately it was fine it's skirted
the line will dune survive be
interesting to watch hope you enjoyed
this video will talk to you and real
soon

why do you believe what you believe
[Music]
because at some point in your life you
trusted the information that somebody
was giving you and that someone you
trusted told you that a car was a car a
tree was a tree a bird was a bird the
blue stuff above you is the sky and
that's the way that we began to
determine what we believe to be a fact
most of the things that we believed to
be a fact in our lives are told to us
through our stories or the news that we
hear so my question would be if they
were deceiving you with the stories they
tell you would you be able to recognize
that
so we've all heard the term conspiracy
theory personally for me I've never
really had time to get into that because
frankly I I'm working all the time and I
don't have the time to look into Bigfoot
or aliens or Flat Earth or 9/11
conspiracy or the JFK assassination it's
just it's not anything that I really
have any backstory on but the one thing
that you have a lot of backstory on the
one thing I do know a lot about is
Hogwood
when you think about the entertainment
industry what comes to mind movies TV
music right let's talk about the same
containment what if this entertainment
was more than just entertainment now
when you're driving home from work what
are you listening to when you come home
after a long day and turn on the TV
what do you see think about all the
content you've seen throughout your
whole life
a lot of it has actually made us who we
are today so you don't know what's
really going on we ever stop for just a
second though question the content the
only thing we consume more than content
is air but we actually think about the
quality of the air we breathe maybe it's
time to take a closer look at our
content
access our governments always control
their content but might feel free that
we've just never paid attention freedom
of speech
message received the please occupy a
community to work with the CIA to
destabilize foreign countries this media
that we're consuming at such a rapid
rate we need to slow down and think
about what we're consuming bullshi going
what if the people in charge didn't have
our best interests in mind
now we have to ask ourselves who's
influencing our content
is the CIA involved in Hollywood yes
[Music]
so for the past 28 years I've probably
had one of the coolest jobs in the world
I was a professional stunt performer
I've worked with some of the biggest
stars I've got to be Batman I got to be
James Bond
I've won World stunt Awards I am in this
Screen Actors Guild I'm in the DGA I'm
in the WGA last year I got into the
Academy the Oscars I worked my way up
from being a stuntman to being a fight
coordinator doing a stunt career be a
second director first big job I get I'm
on Batman Forever and then walking
around set I'm pinching myself I'm
looking over there's Tommy Lee Jones
there's Jim Carrey there's Val Kilmer
there's drew Barrymore there's Nicole
Kidman and I'm like how'd it get here
[Music]
I didn't really say I'm gonna go be a
stunt man I wanted to go make movies but
Sabine's a stunt man was the easiest way
for me to get into the business I didn't
want to be an actor because like
pretending to be a character well being
a stunt man I was that character I was
the guy behind the illusion creating it
for the guy who's on the screen I jumped
out of that helicopter I was in that
fireball I did whatever it was being
asked of the job
I've had an amazing career and I've had
an amazing life but in the system that
exists today as I get up the ladder I
realize it's not what people think it is
it's an illusion it is a complete
illusion in 2014 I was working on a
television show up in Portland and I had
a catastrophic injury I've done this
stuff probably Variations ever 20 times
over my car it was nothing there was a
small fall down into a stairwell I did
the first tape find the second take I
knew I could do it better I went up and
I fell over the rail and I landed on the
pipe down below and I burst fractured my
l2 vertebrae and I was paralyzed from
the waist down when you are injured when
you are catastrophic ly injured a
changes who you are I knew from that day
I would never be the athlete that I once
was and I always told people as a summit
the worst possible injury you can get as
a lower back injury
you can break your legs your arms
whatever but if you injure your lower
back or your hips your pelvic region
you're done there was two years that I
I didn't think I would ever live without
pain one of the issues I was dealing
with at that time was I had lost the
feeling and I still have numbness in my
thighs and on this half of my pelvic
region I was going to physical therapy
and the lady looks at me and she goes
this isn't really helping you you're way
more advanced than this stuff and I go
yeah I do this every morning she goes
well what's up real issues and really
she was my pelvic region and so she said
okay wall there's a woman who works here
and she is a pelvic floor therapist so
how I met Mike I met him his spine was
broken and he had partial paralyzation
of his pelvic floor area we help people
when they have problems with the most
important functions in your life bowel
bladder and sexual function so one day
we're in the middle of therapy and she
stops me and she says Mike you have I
feel like you have really dark spirits
over you can I can I pray for you
and I was like pray for me yeah sure oh
you know I don't really believe in that
stuff anymore but yeah go ahead and pray
for me so she prays for me and I was
kind of thinking while she's doing it
okay this is weird but okay whatever so
for the next two or three months I would
go and then every now and then she would
stop me and she said hey can I hear it I
was kind of a little bit disgusted with
his personality because he was all about
himself and money and I think the Lord
had a lot of work to do in terms of
humility with him he made it very clear
that I he thought I was crazy and but he
let me after she stopped one day I said
you are either 100% batshit crazy or you
think all this is real in the spirit
world and she looked at me and she said
Michael I am one of the only pelvic
floor therapists in Southern California
at the time and when these satanic
people and these evil people do their
rituals two little girls and women and
boys who do you think puts them back
together I do it's completely real and
you need to look into it my awakening it
didn't happen at church the way that
some people find God I just pretty much
had given up my faith and I'd given up
where I was at and I was just kind of at
the point where I was like okay well I'm
gonna have the best time I can here and
when I die I die that's it I still
wasn't sure if I if was a hundred
percent crazy or not but I was reading
these articles and looking at these
things and I was like you know I've seen
things at parties I've seen artwork I've
seen statues I've seen things in some
people's houses that just seemed to be
mimicking a cult stuff I'm reading about
so I was like maybe there is something
to this I'm just gonna say this I didn't
find God because
I went to church I found God because I
realized that the Luciferian and the
other side the occult world was real and
that I had been fooled for all these
years and I didn't got really scared I
got really scared because this was the
first time in my life that I was having
to question my own reality physically I
was crushed I wasn't gonna be who I was
and spiritually I mean if I'm being
honest I wasn't I didn't know anything
about being a Christian I mean really
and then professionally everything that
I knew about my career I was starting to
look at in a different way I was
starting to question Mike my career in
Hollywood from a different perspective
so I first I got off of social media and
I made an anonymous account I started
reading blogs looking at articles I read
books I started watching videos online I
just started searching for the truth and
I was finding accounts that were
searching for the truth themselves they
weren't mainstream accounts these were
accounts online that I felt like were
like me they were just looking for what
the truth was I didn't believe I was
getting the truth from CNN MSNBC Fox I
don't believe in shape I just wanted to
read it absorb it and
Justin and trust what my gut told me I
was reading as they did my research I
began to understand there's a very small
group of people that influence all the
companies that we watch so they used to
call them the big six but Disney just
bought Fox and Disney controls Marvel
and Disney owns Lucas studios so look at
that giant audience right here say a
small group of people who control the
narratives and the content that we all
see on all the channels it makes you
feel like oh I have lots of choices but
you don't whose telling them what to put
on those channels where does that lead
tonight the FBI is on the case and they
are warning big companies in America to
protect their data after a big Hollywood
studio got hit by hackers and several
blockbuster movies ended up online this
is the first time the United States has
accused a foreign government of a cyber
attack against an American corporation
and this interested me because I worked
over at Sony quite a bit during my
career and I actually had to get life
log during the Sony hack so I was you
know I was curious I was like what was
this really about well the narrative put
out in the public was Seth Rogen and
James Franco made a movie about North
Korea and so they were mad and so they
decided to hack Sony to teach them a
lesson that was a public narrative that
went out and that's what I was like well
that makes sense you know I know Seth
and I know James and they're definitely
pushed the envelope of comedy and they
their sense of humor is definitely their
own and I thought to myself okay that
makes sense and now private emails are
going public it's a public relations
disaster but what I found really
interesting is I examine the wiki League
document was it showed that the heads of
one of our biggest movie studios in
America was in direct communication with
very important people in our government
it didn't surprise me I was like okay
well either their friends or there
something more to it so I had never
really thought about the government
influence in our content or our stories
could they be influencing our story and
our content like if these were real
questions that I never had asked myself
I just did the jobs I went to work I did
my job I did whatever was asked and went
home never thought about this stuff so I
was like I don't really know anybody
could answer these questions and I
reached out of this guy who I'd been
watching online his name was Kevin ship
and for those of you who don't know who
Kevin ship is he's a CI whistleblower
he worked in counterintelligence
and he served in many capacities in his
tenure at the CIA this is the big
picture
an official television report to the
nation from the United States Army was
an OSS memo the precursor the CIA were
they were doing a study of the use of
motion pictures in America as a means of
psychological warfare so it goes all the
way back to pre 1947 when US
intelligence was was using motion
pictures to alter the thinking of
Americans in the United States
[Music]
music and general entertainment which
comes out of a single smell package like
this one have helped to close that
morale the CIA is funneling information
in to Hollywood Hollywood is putting out
out in the movies and the population
believes it
taxes don't bury the axis this document
right here is a FOIA document anybody in
America anybody can request this it's
Freedom of Information Act and in the
40s they were telling you they
controlled the radio stations they
controlled most of the mainstream media
they're telling you right here that
motion pictures are used as
psychological warfare why would they
stop doing it and no time as the CIA
engaged in any political activity or any
intelligence activity it was not
approved at the highest level Allen
Dulles groomed and recruited Ian Fleming
and Dulles and the CIA actually helped
Fleming write his books and paint the
CIA in a favorable light and they also
Dulles helped produce Thunderball to
make the CIA and agents look like
honorable you know cool people the sea I
actually helped him write the books and
write the script for that movie and then
the president of MPAA was actually
providing intelligence to the CIA as an
operative in in that position in
Hollywood mr. Fleming in your books
there's a great amount of detail is this
detail based on personal experience do
you make it up where does it come from
well I can say it's 90 percent from
personal experience
really of course I if I started sticking
too close to the astronauts to
astronauts worth of today I spin trouble
with the Official Secrets Act in England
even supposing I had access to
information
[Music]
there's no question about the fact that
Mockingbird is real
it started out paying journalists in
major media Spieler prize-winning
journalist to print fake stories that
the CI wanted in the press and fake
interviews and this was revealed in the
church committee a major circulation
[Music]
and of course then the CIA destroyed the
rest of the files which is what they do
George HW Bush came out and finally made
the statement about Mockingbird well
we're gonna officially stop the marking
bird program the CI will no longer pay
journalists to write stories from now on
the program is voluntary
which means Mockingbird continues today
when's the last time you've seen a
mainstream media outlet do a serious
investigative report on the actions of
the CIA there's a reason for that this
would mean that the CIA could manipulate
the news in the United States by
channeling it through some foreign
country and we're looking at that very
carefully used today
well I yeah I would think probably for a
reporter of a continue today but because
of all of the revelations of the period
of the 1970s it seems to me that a
reporter's got to be much more
circumspect in doing it now or he runs
the risk of at least being looked at
with considerable disfavor by the public
I think you've got to be much more
careful about
dangerous this is extremely dangerous to
our democracy this is extremely
dangerous to our democracy this is
extremely dangerous to our democracy
this is extremely dangerous to our
democracy this is extremely dangerous to
our democracy this is extremely
dangerous to our democracy this is
extremely dangerous to our democracy
[Music]
there is something about the way the CIA
has been functioning that is casting a
shadow on our historic position of
freedom and I feel we need to correct it
senator Moynihan proposed a bill to
dismantle the CIA thank you my friend
introduced it twice the second time was
1995 ironically one year later in 1996
the CI established the entertainment
liaison office which was specifically
penetrated into Hollywood and chase
Brandon was actually co-wrote scripts
for example the recruits looking for
high horsepower high-energy very
competitive people who are driven by
patriotism in a sense of one of the
serve a greater cause I am recruiting
you what I have to kill anyone
would you like to so the C is was and is
in Hollywood was and is contributing to
Hollywood productions in that
manipulation the recruit as I started to
wake up I never actually considered that
the CIA had an office in Hollywood and
I'm like why I see this I see that and I
started putting feelers out like does
anybody else see this stuff and not many
people were awake but the one person
that I reached out to is an old
colleague of mine a friend of mine named
Brad Martin and Brad Knight had similar
careers we worked our way up through the
business together
and he I'm like hey Brad do you see
you've seen this you've seen that it's a
gap for sure and so that gave me
strength that gave me like okay well I'm
not alone in this deal and I'm gonna
keep looking let me just say this Brad
one of the greatest stunt man I've ever
met
probably the best I'm a very physically
creative person I've been doing action
for movies for 26 27 years I excelled
that the action aspect of it a physical
aspect I was doing the fights and doing
the gymnastics and doing the falls and
trained really hard to begin one of the
top stuntmen in the business I started
becoming a fight coordinator and then a
stunt coordinator and then an action
director very few people have ever
gotten to where I've gotten to and I'm
super proud of what I did
[Music]
[Music]
I mean I had a very idealistic view of
the movie business and I've been
disillusioned a few times it feels very
much like there's an agenda and every
movie I realized that it was more of a
machine and it was more of they just
needed content to put out there for the
masses
I stopped really watching TV I stopped
really watching movies and one of the
reasons why I stopped watching movies as
I got into my research and what's going
on in the world right now and all the
corruptness and all of the plot twists
of reality and I started realizing that
reality is twenty times more interesting
than Hollywood I mean I was olliewood
buff I loved all of those movies but now
they're just they they're meaningless
because I know what's going on right now
actually has purpose and has a meaning
and there are consequences and once this
story is told on what's happening in the
world right now and and all of the
powers that be battling each other it
will be the greatest story ever told
it's like for instance I saw something
on History Channel talking about how the
CIA helped Disney buy all the swampland
in Florida well why on earth would they
do that
his lawyers in charge of purchasing the
parcels had served in military
intelligence during World War two and
knew how to keep a secret and they used
several different companies none with
Disney's name to acquire the properties
now I go down this rabbit hole of what
does the CIA have to do it Hollywood or
at least from the wind Disney Washington
DC is definitely in Hollywood I have
seen documents
the DoD and the CIA riding to the studio
heads guiding them in certain fashion
there's a lot of things that people talk
about that are a conspiracy theory but
there's some things that ring true with
me it's like oh wow that makes a lot of
sense another program developed by the
CIA after World War Two was called
Operation Paperclip it's been depicted
in many movies including Disney's and
Marvel series this Operation Paperclip
after world war ii shield recruited
german scientists with strategic value
that caused Operation Paperclip and this
is something people need to know because
it has been so covered up and mocked and
berated and claimed to be a conspiracy
theory and by the way the term labeling
people as conspiracy theorists was
invented by the CIA to deflect any
attention over the JFK assassination
they invented that word as as a way to
shut down any scrutiny or this critical
critical investigation of what they were
doing so they started that whole ball
rolling in terms of Operation Paperclip
there's apps it is documented there's
absolutely no question about it
Allen Dulles CIA director was associate
of Heinrich Himmler of the Third Reich
so what Dulles proceeded to do when the
Third Reich was brought down was he
secretly brought all of the top Nazi
scientists into the u.s. he falsified
their files that he gave to Harry Truman
making them look like there were no war
crimes they brought these Nazi
scientists into the CIA to work for the
CIA and that includes the human
experiments they conducted on Jewish men
women and children and the psychological
studies that these Nazi scientists had
done the CIA was using
expertise for these programs through
Operation Paperclip and this was not
seen much of it occult beliefs that the
CIA adopted and actually put these
people on their payroll one of the
programs that came out of Operation
Paperclip was MKULTRA now MKULTRA is a
very complex program that dealt with
human experiments and mind manipulation
as this 1952 CIA memo says the aim is
controlling an individual to the point
where he will do our bidding against his
will and even against such fundamental
laws of nature as self-preservation
in the church committee MKULTRA came out
as an actual program of mind-control
using mental physical and sexual abuse
and psychotropic drugs
lysergic acid diethylamide LSD
it was one of the first times that
anybody had run into a powerful drug
that was different
anything else that they knew anything
about a decision was made at the highest
levels of the CIA to do testing on
unwitting Americans at Raven's Craig dr.
Cameron went further with drugs and
electric shock treatments than any
researchers in the MKULTRA project dared
his aim was to wipe the mind clean then
he would implant new messages by forcing
the patient to listen to a hypnotic
repetition as many as a quarter of a
million times this was called psychic
driving it would give the patient
intensive electric treatment he would
attempt to implant new ideas in the mind
of the patient now to a layman it would
appear that dr. Cameron was trying to
take the slate and wipe it clean a
slight being the mind
in other words brainwashing exactly
that's a very good comparison
brainwashing
yes okay
No
good heavens
[Music]
you're doing fine just try to describe
it
[Music]
how do you feel inside
nobody explained it to me nobody ever
asked me if I was willing to do it or
anything
and they put me on sleep treatment and
now they kept you asleep for 23 days and
while I was a state they were shocking
the heck out of me with electric shocks
and playing tapes
[Music]
it was really like a concentration camp
[Applause]
nothing for you to watch here but you're
gonna talk to me as we go along they
couldn't go any further because CIA
director Richard Helms destroyed all the
CIA's MKULTRA documents and they had to
rely on coached witnesses so they were
never able to deep dig even deeper what
they got was bad enough
it was never terminated there's no
evidence that it was ever terminated no
documents no nothing and not even an
admission by the CIA that has been
terminated how do you feel feeling
better
are you sleeping well better no good
disable a whole city by putting a very
small amount on a water supply yeah
after all of these years of us those of
us who involved and then looking for
this secret drug this was the only thing
that began to look for the first time
like it might be something like that
so MKULTRA was one of the hardest
programs for me to wrap my head around
because it's it's it's a lot of subsets
programs and I was really surprised that
Brad Martin knew about MKS room people
think that research people are crazy for
talking about MKULTRA mind control even
if they acknowledge that that existed
they go home well that that ended in the
70s that's a crock of shit and perhaps
the world's only hope of stopping a
sinister assassination plot the movie
that I did involving that topic was
Zoolander fashion industry has been
behind every major political
assassination over the last 200 years
at the time I was making a comedy and I
had no idea what I was involved with but
now looking back on the movie I'm blown
away at just the propaganda in a movie
like Zoolander
when they're showing you that they're
controlling Derek Zoolander's mind
through mind control you realize that
they're trying to desensitize you and to
make you think that what you're watching
is fiction because it's in a comedy like
a mass in Peoria their purpose is to
capture the minds of the people and feed
them false history the CIA's funneling
information in to Hollywood Hollywood is
putting out out in the movies and the
population believes it all right so look
here's the deal
they have been desensitizing us since we
were born and I'll give you some
examples let's start with the big one
let's start with words we hear all the
time and never even think about let's
start with the word entertainment to
entertain what does that mean to bind
our hold to binder or what an audience's
attention okay now let's take the word
Hollywood where does that come from well
Hollywood comes from the holly tree and
the ancient druids back in the day used
to take the holly tree make wands to
weave spells cast spells or channel
spells and when they needed help they
would consult the Magi or the mediums of
the day to help channel their spells to
the population we'll cut to today what
do we have in our houses we had these
black boxes where they call TVs but if
you stop and you say the word tell a
vision television and when you turn on
that television what do you get what's
the first thing that pops up a list of
channels and when you turn on those
channels what's on those channels
programming they are programming you
they've been programming your whole life
you don't even know it they do it with
your music they do it with your TV they
do it with your movies they do it with
your games they have been programming us
and programming you since you were
little and you don't even know it
because you don't even question
[Music]
starting in 1900 we entered a previously
unimaginable time of modern technology
advances that allow the rulers of this
world to construct and direct our
stories in ways we previously never
imagined as a result new techniques to
control the population were realized
these are the people from the companies
that we have trusted to deliver us our
news and tell our stories this has
always been about controlling what we as
the population think in here
they helped create our culture and
influence our society we as citizens
only trust them because as a society we
think that the gatekeepers have our best
interests in mind
the dangerous you know edges here are
that he's trying to undermine the media
trying to make up his own facts and it
could be that while unemployment and the
the economy worsens he could have
undermined the messaging so much that he
can actually control exactly what people
think and that is the that is your job
yeah this is our job Yaya
as I was researching I found that most
of the early communication companies
were developed for shipping or aviation
and a lot of the men that started these
companies were commissioned by the
military during World War one and World
War two many of these men work for the
Army and Navy intelligence services
along with the OSS which we know became
the CIA
there were many examples of these men
becoming the heads or founders of some
of the biggest motion picture and media
companies before and after their
government or military service
I wanted to know how many of the media
companies in today's world connected
back to Washington so I started looking
it was like a family tree that
connections between our government
personnel and the media corporations was
unbelievable Google Amazon Netflix
Twitter CNN ABC so what would happen if
all these companies had the same
political ideology or agenda we as this
population like to hear people confirm
our confirmation biases we like to hear
people tell us that we're right we don't
like to be wrong and we believe that the
people on the media and the people that
were listening to have our best
interests in mind the problem is is what
they don't so if you stop and think
about it they can place any agenda on
the population that they choose I think
that Hollywood is teaching bad morals to
the youth of this country as well as
adults desensitizing of violence to the
masses you can't deny that my kids have
seen so many people get killed in very
violent ways three times as much gun
violence now and the the sex that's in
pg-13 news why
every Disney movie there's a major
character usually a parent that gets
killed trauma to the child why it's so
horrible what a bad story why do you
need to start a story with a parent
dying always it's it's so sad
under MKULTRA they experimented on
children we were even taught this in
psychophysiology program that if you get
to a child between ages 1 and 6 or 1 or
8 with especially with sexual abuse or
sexual trauma you will split their
personality and they will be imprinted
the rest of their life and many times
that results in split personalities and
disassociative behavior and other things
these occult topics are being induced
our kids and most parents aren't even
aware of it
[Music]
so the biggest surge with this occult
type material took place in the late 60s
in the early 70s with movies like The
Exorcist Amityville Horror The Texas
Chainsaw Massacre Halloween and Roman
Polanski's Rosemary's Baby and
coincidentally the same time period it
parallels the rise of the Church of
Satan in Los Angeles and it was founded
by a guy named Anton LaVey
so what it's done when I was a police
officer we had cases of satanic cults
right in Arlington Virginia those have
been around for decades they're in the
high schools they're in the college's
they're in the government and they're in
Hollywood I got to meet people like
Sammy Davis and that kind of shit
Sammy told me he worship the devil sandy
was like you know Satan is as powerful
as God I was like what why do you think
there's so much anger in the world and
the killing and murder and a Satan and
he saw my reaction to it that he kind of
lightened up on it and he was like if
dantana this dark is that the candles on
the table
Sammy's face over the camera you know
Satan is as powerful as we've gotten
[Music]
from our point of view it really makes
no difference whether you pray to a
Father God or to a mother goddess or to
an entire gaggle of gods and goddesses
Michael Aquino was a high-level officer
in the National Security Agency he was
and is you'll see him today a practicing
Satanist
he created the Satanic temple of set
which he still runs he was a high-level
NSA officer he's a member of the
Association I used to be in the
Association two former intelligence
officers if I oh he's a member of that
he's plugged in big-time to the
intelligence community and he wrote a
paper called mind war and mind world was
about psychological operations again
against populations including the
American the domestic population using
Satanist techniques and tools Pokeno was
first involved in NK ultra operations
during the Vietnam War as part of the
Phoenix program well first I've been
involved in intelligence and
psychological operations for about 40
years in all levels of it and across the
intelligence community you are a
lieutenant colonel in the United States
Army correct now and how does the army
feel about you being head of the temple
of set the Army is not about my religion
the entire span of my army career which
began in 1968 the our army has paid very
little attention to it the same as it
would to anybody who say of our Hinduism
or of Buddhism or any other slightly
unusual originally he was occupied a
position at the Presidio which was a
training facility for the US government
and it was uncovered that he was running
a pedophile ring I think 50 kids came
out and fingered him as the guy that had
done sexual acts on them as children it
went to trial he walked from the trial
successfully because he had a good
attorney despite the fact that there
were multiple witnesses that said Aquino
it through satanic rituals had abused
them as children there's no question
that he's a practicing Satanist just
watch any one of his interviews on this
author is one of a number of daggers
which we may use in our rituals this one
happened to belong to the commanding
general of the most elite unit of
Germany's infamous SS which was
concerned with black magic and their
cultists and research and gentlemen
anything that it could find that had to
do with the origins of the human race
destiny of humanity the perverted view
of the account held by Heinrich Himmler
was of an evil magic that could help
create a new master race Vailsburg
castle is where he performed his
ceremonies I have been to the Vailsburg
which still preserves Heinrich Himmler's
ritual chambers to this day and have
conducted a black magical ritual in the
so called Hall of the Dead
beneath the Vailsburg this particular
dagger is inscribed to our comrade in
the latest centaur - Te'o Darvish we got
if you're a major general in the
waffen-ss
and on its blade it bears the
inscription mine era heist ROI or my
honor shall be known by my faithfulness
akeno's thesis stated that enemy
populations could be subdued by
inflicting a state of psychological
terror and feelings of imminent
destruction he discusses the use of
cyclotron equip ins in electromagnetic
weapons that influence the mind by
extremely low frequency signals
piggybacked on broadcast and radio TV or
microwave communications in order to
influence and manipulate the thoughts
and feelings of the target population
these ongoing MKULTRA operations are
functioning as a counterinsurgency and
infiltration operation aimed at
destabilizing the United States and
other industrialized nations I give the
CIA a total credit for sponsoring and
initiating the entire consciousness
movement counterculture events of the
1960s
history will judge the role of the CIA
and other intelligence agencies in
unwittingly contributing to the
counterculture of the 60s for their
intense interest in LSD and other
hallucinogenics but for the moment at
least the argument can be made that the
CIA helped usher in the Age of Aquarius
[Music]
Oh Canyon was the epitome of the Summer
of Love I mean we saw the possibility of
the way we could live it's odd because
in Laurel Canyon so many of the
soon-to-be stars there their parents
were in either the military industrial
complex or intelligence or the Pentagon
in Frank Zappa's case his dad is working
at Edgewood Arsenal where they were
doing biochem study psychotropic and
exposing US troops to VX nerve gas and
other things the family kept gas masks
in their house he grew up with that in
case there was an accident
and Edgewood Arsenal was doing this very
similar related MKULTRA projects on US
troops the gulf of tonkin is another
prime example the commander of the gulf
fleet in the gulf of tonkin his son was
jim morrison they claimed the USS Maddox
was attacked by Vietnamese vessels it
was never attacked as a matter of fact
they put ghost ships on the radar to
make it look like they were Vietnamese
ships de Maddox was never attacked it
was an actual literal false flag to
enable the u.s. to declare war on
Vietnam so Jim Morrison's dad was
involved in the false flag of the Gulf
of Tonkin
after talking to Kevin I started looking
into Laurel Canyon I drove down world
Canyon to Hollywood almost daily when I
would first moved out there and I've
never knew that there was an old Air
Force Base called Lookout Mountain US
Air Force Base at the top of Laurel
Canyon and what's funny is as if you do
the history of it it's owned today by a
guy named Jared Leto another tactic
developed out of the MKULTRA project
with the use of compromise and control
via honey pots the decision was made to
do testing on unwitting victims it was
decided they should be on the fringes of
society because they were most
vulnerable we did quite a study of
prostitutes and their behavior how do
you take a woman who was willing to use
her body to get money out of a guy to
get him to talk about things which are
much more important like state secrets
[Music]
it learned a lot about human nature in
the bedroom we started to pick up
knowledge that could be used in
operations
there would be victims in all of this as
one agency memo says we have no answer
to the moral question that's one of the
CIA's favorite tactic are honey pots and
I work with CIA psychologists and
they're they're dirty I always felt that
every house could have its own secret
panel or I see you lift this up mm-hmm
does the trapdoor opens up and looks
into the cave or what time is called the
wool grout oh boy
they're running blackmail operations
where they're getting very well-known
government and private industry lead
people in compromising positions at the
Playboy Mansion on Epstein's plane on
orgy island and they're photographing
them and after that it's like
congressman so-and-so or CEO so-and-so I
wouldn't bring that up if I was you
because we got photographs of you with
of a 14 year old girl on FF Steen's
plane for example and you talk about
shutting somebody up permanently that's
how they do it it's pretty simple if you
think about it to control the population
you have to control the people messaging
the population some of these stars have
twenty thirty million followers that's
more followers than CNN Fox ABC NBC
these people have to be controlled they
can't just go off message and start
saying whatever they want to say they
have to be somewhat reined in they have
to be controlled or they do not get the
platform to have the voice that they
have
they get the politicians the politicians
are put there to give you the idea that
you have freedom of choice you don't you
have no choice you have owners they own
you they own everything they own all the
important land they own and control the
corporations they've long since bought
and paid for the Senate the Congress the
state houses the city halls they got the
judges in their back pockets and they
own all the big media companies so they
control just about all of the news and
information you get to hear they got you
by the ball it's a big club and you
ain't in it you and I are not in the big
club by the way it's the same big club
they use to beat you over the head with
all day long when they tell you what to
believe all day long beating you over
the head in their media telling you what
to believe what to think and what to buy
the table is tilted folks the game is
rigged and nobody seems to notice nobody
seems to care good honest hard-working
people white-collar blue-collar doesn't
matter what color shirt you have on good
honest hard-working people continue
these are people of modest means
continue to elect these rich cock
suckers who don't give a fuck about them
they don't care about you at all
at all and nobody seems to notice nobody
seems to care that's what the honors
count on the fact that Americans will
probably remain willfully ignorant
because the owners of this country know
the truth it's called the American dream
because you have to be asleep to believe
it stop for a second you just look at
the bigger picture and you check out for
a minute and you kind of compare the
ancient times to today well back then
they had like what demigods and gods
they were like Achilles Hercules Apollo
mercury all these were demagogues and
that's who the people in those days
looked up to well today we have all
these people like jay-z Rihanna Beyonce
Lady Gaga Katy Perry in film we have
Brad Pitt Will Smith we have all these
big stars and the way they prop them up
and they put them up on stages like
their gods or demigods
in this room are some of the most
important TV and film executives in the
world people from every background but
they all have one thing in common
they're all terrified of Ronan Farrow
he's coming for you he's coming for you
look talking of all you perverts it was
a big year it was a big year for
pedophile movies surviving r.kelly
leaving Neverland two popes I don't care
I don't care most people don't want to
cross the psychological line that this
stuff is going on and we all have a
mental defense mechanism it's like
finally admitting there's an elite
pedophile ring I mean most people just
don't want to go there and the same is
here you psychologically you lose your
safety your security and whatever
innocence you have when you realize that
this stuff is really going on and it's a
it's a chore to cross over that dairy
and realize oh my gosh this stuff is
really happening and that's why it takes
critical thinking the people have got to
look at this stuff critically and see
what they're being fed so they can cross
that psychological line that they just
refused to see it when it's right in
front of them when Kevin said there's an
elite pedophile ring well I'm thinking
to myself this is this is a hard thing
for me to come to terms with now it made
me start thinking about conversations
and things I'd heard but I'd never saw
it it's not out in the open and to me I
was like no one could do that because I
mean if I saw someone hurting a kid I
would kill them literally kill him I
would never allow someone to hurt a
child in front of me thinks Kevin were
saying were things that were hard for me
to cross the barrier I did not want to
believe it I didn't want to go there but
as I went down this journey I forced
myself to go consider what if this is
real and the only person that was
talking about this stuff was a girl
named Liz croakin and the media had
declared her completely out of her mind
but as I started researching some of the
things she was reporting on I was like
there there's truth to what she's saying
so I want to talk to her I started
working in journalism at a very young
age I got my first job working for Fox
Chicago at about the age of 17 years old
at the University of Iowa I studied
political science and journalism one
semester if I interned for Bill O'Reilly
at Fox News Channel my last year in
college I interned for the State
Department's White House reporter and
that placed me reporting in the White
House every single day for a few months
I went on to work for the Chicago
Tribune and my first boss there told me
that everything that I should get should
be checked over and over and over again
and verified to death that's how I was
trained and that's what a true honest
journalist does I started covering local
politics and local hard news and then
eventually I got my own column for seven
years where I interviewed tons of
celebrities and politicians and
musicians and worked at Us Weekly and
then at one point I worked at InTouch
Weekly magazine but then 2015 I felt the
need to get back into covering hard news
in early 2016 I started working for Town
Hall and then eventually start working
for the New York Observer and broke a
lot of election related stories I worked
in media for over two decades and I
never had any issues I was very well
respected
I basically was embraced by the
mainstream media until I start reporting
on pizza gay
now when Pizza Gate came out the media
tried to turn pizza gate into something
that wasn't surprises of the
presidential campaign was the explosion
of fake news on the Internet
twenty-eight-year-old edgar Welch was
arrested in Washington Sunday afternoon
outside Comet ping-pong a popular family
pizza parlor DC police say Welch fired
at least one round into the restaurant
floor with an ar-15 rifle like this one
on his Facebook page no one was injured
someone on Twitter whose name remains
unverified but has several thousand
followers posted that new emails found
on Anthony Weiner's computer confirmed
that Hillary Clinton was involved in a
pedophilia ring the rumor spread
inspiring some newfound internet sleuths
to start digging around in John
Podesta's hacked emails searching for
proof and location of the so-called sex
ring in those emails they are absolutely
littered with cold words and many of
these cold words are food works such as
pizza somebody said to me hey Dave
search for pizza and Podesta's emails
and once you go down that rabbit hole
you never really emerged the same person
it was obvious from the get-go that
these words were code words for
something else because the context that
they were used in did not make sense to
be clear
not one single email in the Podesta
emails discusses child sex trafficking
or pedophilia that is a fact but there
are dozens of what seemed to be
strangely worded emails dealing with
pizza and handkerchiefs investigators
say that those words in the emails about
pizza and the talk of handkerchiefs is
code language used by pedophiles there
is some kind of code language they're
just not talking about pizza folks a who
phrase is that Hugh box out an hour of
time to eat a slice of pizza you can get
a service for a half an hour you can get
a massage for a half an hour but you
can't get food for half an hour it just
absolutely makes no sense there's other
ones like the realtor found a
handkerchief I think it has a map that
seems Pizza related and another one is
Obama spent $65,000 flying in pizza and
hot dogs from Chicago are we using the
same Chan
Pizza is a well-known paedophile code
word that actually has been used by law
enforcement to arrest online sexual
predators of children and there's been
multiple arrests that have been made by
law enforcement of pedophiles trying to
solicit children by using the pedophile
code word Pizza 2007 unclassified FBI
document that document according to the
FBI contains commonly used symbols by
pedophiles to express their preference
and children notice this one on the in
the triangle that image signify
something called boy love the pizza
place next door to comet ping-pong pizza
that's the pizza well this was their
logo until only a few weeks ago people
don't know that because the mainstream
media refuses to cover it the entire
mainstream media redefined what pizza
gate was to make it sound ridiculous and
less believable and then they had people
like megan kelly come in interview james
Alphonsus didn't ask him any challenging
questions a conspiracy theory that even
the DC police say has no basis in fact
she didn't ask him any questions about
the pictures of children on his
Instagram page looking abused being
sexualized she didn't ask him about the
pedophile talk so the whole mainstream
media painted him as this poor victim as
this person that was innocent that was
just victimized as something that wasn't
true
but just his Instagram page alone should
have been enough for authorities to look
into him
investigators have already proven
there's nothing to this story right well
actually no and that's what you need to
know for all that is here there has not
been one single public investigation of
any of this not from local police not
from the FBI no one and that has to be
the big question not for Podesta or for
pizza parlor owners but for law
enforcement based on what may be or may
not be here the big question is why
hasn't any investigation taking place
this is insane
so many people in the mainstream media
have said pizza gays conspiracy theory
pizza gate has been debunked it has not
been debunked if it's been debunked
explain the cold words no one to this
day including John Podesta himself can
explain the code words in his emails
hey John Podesta can you please explain
why you have children rented for
entertainment for your adult hot tub
parties no one has ever explained why
John Podesta has literal pedophile
cannibalism paintings all over his
office and his home Tony Podesta too and
then you look into the spirit cooking
dinners when you look into Marina
Abramovic who was the one that was
conducting the spirit cooking dinners
why are they going to spirit cooking
dinners why are they sacrificing
chickens Samoa in their backyard this
isn't my work this is their words this
is in their emails I'd be willing to
debate anyone who thinks that pizza gate
has been debunked you asked me when when
did how am I getting additional
briefings that that was the first and
last time I talked Oberer ninth is the
last time you have heard from the FBI at
all yes you have not got an update on my
education in your personal email that
that is correct so not only did the
mainstream media lie to you about pizza
gate they actually told you that it was
illegal to read John Podesta's emails on
WikiLeaks Chris Cuomo with a straight
face on CNN looked into the cameras and
said it's illegal for you to read John
Podesta Z mails also interesting is
remember it's illegal to possess these
stolen documents it's different for the
media so everything you learn about this
you're learning from us that's how
scared they are of those emails and
that's how explosive the content in
those emails are that they felt the need
that they had to tell you you could not
read those emails and if you do you
might get arrested why it's different
for the media so everything you learn
about this you're learning from us
people that blow the whistle on elite
pedophiles tend to have accidents and a
lot of those people have died
mysteriously NBC News has learned that
disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein is
dead Epstein took his own life while he
was behind bars there's absolutely no
excuses what happened here to me is
mind-boggling
the guy was a high-risk prisoner was
wasn't he I mean he's a guy that they're
probably 50 very important people that
have a motive to kill him we don't even
know who they are it's true but we know
there are some people that are in a lot
of trouble because of Epstein they know
who they are
his flight logs contain names of some of
the biggest most famous and most
powerful people on the planet members of
the royal family
Prince Andrew mottos like Naomi Campbell
famous actors like Kevin Spacey Bill
Clinton on those fight logs over 25
times Hillary Clinton she's also been to
the islands so the bigger question is
how many people that went on his private
jet that went to his private island that
went to his massive ranch in New Mexico
were also involved in the rape torture
and trafficking of children it hides in
plain sight Epstein was hiding in plain
sight we all knew about him we all knew
what he was doing but we had no one that
was no legal aspect that would go after
him they were afraid of him for whatever
reason they were afraid and the amazing
thing about Cindy McCain is that her
husband was a senator she was on a board
with the governor of Texas she knew
about Jeffrey Epstein she did nothing
and her organization the role of her
organization is supposed to be to stop
people like Jeffrey Epstein they all
knew they did nothing about it when
ricky gervais said at the Golden Globes
you're all friends Jeffrey Epstein he
wasn't lying so in the end he obviously
didn't kill himself just like Jeffrey
Epstein
shut up I know he's your friend but I
don't care you got to make your own way
air in your own plane didn't ya right
and how many of those elites have been
to his island not only is the mainstream
media complicit I would argue that there
are accessories in the crimes against
children she told me everything she had
pictures she had everything she was in
hiding for 12 years we convinced her to
come out we convinced her to talk to us
it was unbelievable what we had Clinton
we had everything I for three years to
get it on to no avail and now it's all
coming out and it's like these new
relevant revelations and I freaking had
on all of it I was so pissed right now
like every day I get more and more
pissed cuz I'm just like oh my god we it
wasn't what we had was unreal Brad
Edwards the Attorney three years ago
saying like on like we there will come a
day but we will realize Jeffrey Epstein
was the most prolific pedophile this
country has ever known and I had it all
three years ago then what happened in
early 2018
Keith Renier who ran the nexium child
sex trafficking cult was arrested who
else was arrested aliceandmac she's a
famous celebrity who was on Smallville
she was also arrested for being a member
of this cults that was involved in
trafficking children and not only
trafficking children they were running
preschools down in Mexico and nexium is
another example of how these elite
pedophile rings exist because this was a
massive organization this was funded by
really wealthy people including the
Seagram Eris's Nancy salzman and Claire
Bronfman so obviously they were using
those preschools to traffic children and
the cult also engaged in human torture
experiments on some of their members and
there actually was a civil lawsuit that
was filed by 90 of their victims just
the other day so I imagine we are gonna
hear more about the human experiments
the torturing the sexual abuse and the
child sex trafficking in this civil
lawsuit and a lot of the techniques that
we see in this cult are very similar to
the techniques that our government used
in the MKULTRA program it was a branding
women with Keith's initials and they
were like but what's what's the bad
thing exactly about that everyone on the
outside world aka the real world is like
that branding women so I left I went to
the Executive Board and I said I want my
photos back my videos back the branding
session was filmed I want all of that
back want my collateral back none of
that happened and it's it's the same
fear mind control and you'll be
destroyed if you cross get into the
upper elites and if you get to that
point if you start revealing anything
they have the same system to completely
destroy you destroy your career
blackmail you like Epstein keep you
catch you film you in compromising
positions and and this goes both within
Hollywood and celebrities and some of
the elite and it also goes on in
Congress and the Senate and if they even
insinuate that they're going to reveal
some of these things they're done
[Applause]
[Music]
[Applause]
the powerful people that beat whether
it's the music industry or the movie
industry you are only allowed a certain
level of success if you are willing to
join their club if you're willing to be
part of their secret society or if
you're compromised they will not let
someone obtain a lot of Fame in and
power if they can't control you
a classic example that at least for me
is Katy Perry Katy Perry was was a
gospel singer very talented but she was
going nowhere and she got up to
Hollywood and basically they said you
want to be a success
you play by our rules you step into the
occult and you start putting that in
your videos and now she's doing videos
with her in hell with satanic themes and
she's what highly successful you see
that over with Lady gaga
who came out an accent said she was so
tired of being handled and manipulated
she had to take a break
that this is this young outrageous girl
wear strange clothes she's into extremes
she's experimental she had 43 million
people on the Twitter following her
whatever she do little monsters
and she came really very humble to my
house and asked me if I could teach her
we made this workshop in the woods and
she was such a good student
she never cheat she really went much
farther than I asked her for she is a
limitless human being as myself as
self-proclaimed pop performance artist
wanna go home and slit my wrists and I
you know I have nothing I have achieved
no sense of art she is she is so
boundless it was a the performance was
booked Lady Gaga who supported the
synthesis as Amoy radical that pressure
precious let me stay in Moscow to look
stupid
Marina Abramovic of course is in the
Podesta emails and she's the one that
conducts the spear cooking dinners she
said that marina did an exercise with
her where she stripped her completely
naked and left her in the middle of the
woods to fend for herself and find her
way back those are the kinds of things
that people who are behind MKULTRA
programs do to children that their mind
controlling we know Marina Abramovic is
a Satanist you google marine
Abramovich's name and spirit cooking and
you will find hundreds of pictures of
Marina Abramovic events where they will
have for example cake that looks like a
human being and they'll depict human
cannibalism and they claim they're not
engaging in cannibalism and you will
find a list actors and famous
politicians and other very famous and
successful powerful business people at
her events they literally have food that
look like human beings on dinner tables
he's Italian and Greek I mean you know
and a very good cook and a very good
cook and I'm sure there's something very
nefarious about that risotto recipe so
after I started researching that call
I learned that Satanist believe that
they have to reveal who they are in some
way shape or form so that is why we see
a lot of these occult members in
Hollywood constantly flaunting symbolism
we see the pyramid they'll naughty
pyramid a lot we see the evil one I
constantly it's always on the cover of
magazines we see these are supposed to
be the 666 devil symbols we constantly
see those symbols we also see pedophile
symbols the swirl or the triangle within
a triangle and we also see a lot of
these members of the cult go on their
social media and they talk about raping
children they talk about worshipping
Satan and people write it off as joke
but they're not joking I don't care if
you're a major comedian you can't tell
me that's funny
because there is no joke about raping
children that's funny
doesn't know David Letterman doesn't
know you don't know all the comics and
show business don't know what this is
takes guts to put out a film that does
this cuz no one's done it up until now
but when that's done and people see
these facts and they say my gosh I
didn't know that I didn't know that
about the Gulf of Tonkin I didn't know
that about the Vietnamese the Vietnam
War
my gosh and they go in they check it out
it's all true and now they're seeing the
dots a big and a good film will teach
them how to practice critical thinking
to analyze what you're watching if we
can get people to analyze what they're
watching we've crossed a huge hurdle
because once they start analyzing it
they're gonna see the dots and typically
the dots will connect themselves Liz
crow can put herself so far out in front
that she was mocked
she was laughed at she was called crazy
well let me ask you a question for all
those people that did that to Liz does
she seem so crazy now when you put all
of those facts together and you use
critical thinking do you realize this
stuff is real there's not one smoking
gun
there's many small smoking guns that you
have to piece together and you have to
use critical thinking to understand this
stuff is real so again the bigger
question is now that Jeffrey Epstein has
been exposed and he's allegedly dead how
many of his friends there were frequent
visitors on his sex trafficking islands
were also involved in the rape torture
and trafficking of children and that's
what Pizza GAE is
you
I guess what I'm asking you all to do is
just disconnect for a second stand back
look at the lyrics of your songs look at
the agendas of the movies look at the
messages of the media that you're
absorbing because it's impossible to say
that all of it's bad like all
Hollywood's bad that's not true like
it's like saying all the cia's bad
there's a lot of good people that work
in both industries that that aren't bad
people but if the people that control
the narratives and the agendas are not
good people and they have different
agendas they can put that on you and you
won't even notice it unless you stand
back and look at things objectively I
can't compromise anymore that for me
that's not what life's about I want to
send a good message to my kids and I
want them to know that at the end of the
day their dad did what was right and
their dad fought for the good things in
life if I could ever get the opportunity
to make movies that send out good
messages and then people start realizing
that they can be good and that there are
they can jump on the bandwagon of good
that that's the next phase people start
believing it it's the same thing with
desensitizing with the violence people
start believing that it's okay to kill
somebody or watching somebody die isn't
a big deal you serve when people aren't
helping other people and need on the
streets there's a problem in this world
but this could this could all be changed
right now the reason why I'm doing this
documentary is because I want to be one
of the first people that come out and
say hey it doesn't have to be like this
we are good people humans are good and
we can make the world a better place
because the the money and the technology
to make this world a better place is
there it's just been covered up for and
controlled for so long that is time for
it all to come out and maybe I'm
the catalyst for something better what
does the media look like in the future
wall to me what I would hope is that
it's not filtered I would love to build
a platform or build some sort of system
where artists could connect directly to
their audience
I want to make products and tell stories
that bring humanity together that bring
compassion that bring love the bring
forgiveness that bring inspiration and
courage back to the audience without
having the influence of violence or
gratuitous sex or gratuitous death or
gratuitous or because those are things
and images that get stored in our psyche
and our soul and I don't think that's
the way that this earth was intended to
be
you

dillan you son-of-a-bitch right I'm not
fucking around with this one because
predator isn't the kind of movie with
which one Fox it's quite simply one of
the greatest action movies ever made a
big hulking unapologetic mass of
nineteen eighties testosterone bravado
guns and general awesomeness that's been
scientifically proven to turn boys into
men women into quivering wrecks and men
into goddamn sexual Tyrannosaurus just
like me it was one of the format's of
cinematic experiences of my life back
when I was still an impressionable young
drinker and one of the Holy Trinity of
Arnold Schwarzenegger movies that every
sane individual should watch in their
lifetime and a few years ago it would
have seemed almost redundant to heap
praise on a movie like predator but it's
come to my attention that there are
people out there particularly from the
younger generation who still haven't
seen it even worse there are people
whose only frame of reference for the
predator franchise is the god-awful
piece of excrement that came out a
couple of years ago clearly this is an
unacceptable state of affairs and
there's only one way to put it rights
this calls for another episode of the
drink so let's dive straight into the
plot of predator and then I can tell you
why I think it's so damn good
predator kicks off in Central America by
introducing us to Dutch the leader of an
elite Special Forces team of 1980s
archetypes
there's Blaine a big hulking soldier who
chews tobacco and fights with a fucking
minigun and I guess he's a busy guy
because ain't a time to be
there's also his buddy mark who's so
hard he dry shaves in the middle of an
operation just because he can Billy a
Native American trucker with a sixth
sense who totally doesn't understand
jokes until he does the wannabe comedian
of the group who's always making jokes
about his girlfriend's vagina geez you
got a big pussy
geez you can't be pussy careful son that
sort of talk might offend someone and
Pancho who's just kind of there oh and
he likes grenade launchers the team has
been brought in because a foreign
diplomats be shot down and captured by
rebel insurgents in a country that
conveniently never gets named and yeah I
know people are gonna see it Valverde
the same fictional country from commando
but it's never explicitly mentioned in
the theatrical cut so I refuse to accept
it anyway
their mission is simple sneak over the
border rescue the diplomat then get to
the chopper and head back to base for
beer and steroids complicating matters
however is the addition of dutchies old
friend Dylan who's apparently a son of a
bitch bitch
he also pushes pencils for the CIA now
and Dutch doesn't think it's a good idea
for him to go along on the mission but
his commander is like nah he'll be fine
so anyway they fly over the border while
listening to rock and roll music making
pussy jokes and spitting tobacco on each
other's boots god I love the ease they
soon find the crashed chopper and tracks
leading back to the rebel base but this
is where the plot thickens not only is
the chopper some kind of classified
surveillance aircraft but they also pick
up the trail of a group of American
soldiers that were following the rebels
clearly someone got there before them
only it didn't work out so well for them
but who were these men Green Berets had
a Ford leg and what the hell were they
doing here that's a good question Dutch
it looks like there's something shitty
going on here but Dylan's like nah it'll
be fine anyway they make it to the rebel
base where they see one of the hostages
being execute
so it's time for a bit of good
old-fashioned ass-kicking I love this
battle scene touching the team are just
straightened around like gods blowing
shit up with absolute impunity
there's many guns grenades choppers
getting shot down Dutch lifting up a
truck for some reason people running
around on fire and of course the
obligatory Arnold one-liners knock knock
needless to say Team America comes out
on top Billy has a good laugh and they
even managed to take one of the rebels
prisoner it's funny how the hot young
woman is the only one to survive this
absolute massacre II I also love how
nobody even bothers to ask her name and
so we're like 80 minutes into the movie
however all is not well as the smoke
clears dutch figures out that you sell
sausage often what's an arsehole but
more bad news is to come rebel
reinforcements are closing in around
them and their rescue chopper can't risk
landing to pick them up so they've got
no choice but to hike out through the
jungle to reach the extraction point
nice a fractured group forced to work
together to overcome difficult
challenges and our risks against time to
reach a final objective but this is
where the movie shifts gears as it moves
into its second act see the first part
of this film was a pretty conventional
action movie with a perv intrigue and
conspiracy to spice things up but now
we're getting into something very
different we keep seeing shots of Dutch
and the team through some kind of
thermal-imaging camera like someone or
something is following them but what
could it be and why is this so
interested in them anyway they stop for
a rest and Anna pretends to give poncho
the dick ice so she can escape so
Hawkins goes after her but then a white
knight comes in to save her from his
toxic masculine it's see what could this
thing be it's like it's invisible or
something anyway it grabs his body and
drags it away into the jungle then Dutch
in the others show up and they realize
Hawkins is missing so they go looking
for him but then Blaine gets killed too
Mac loses his mind and starts shooting
with the minigun and everyone else
thinks it looks like fun so they join in
- you know I can't help but think that
blindly firing into the jungle is a
pretty quick way to waste all your ammo
and it's
probably not what real Special Forces
operatives would do in this situation
but who the fuck cares when it looks
this good this scene is legendary for
all the right reasons but when the smoke
eventually clears they realize they
haven't killed whatever they were
shooting at Dutch wants answers but
nobody seems to have any Dylan reckons
they were ambushed by the rebels but
Billy has a different theory there's
something out there waiting for us
and it ain't nowhere anyway
they make camp for the night and set
booby traps all around but then a wild
animal accidentally sets one off and
while Mac's busy knifing it to death the
predator comes in and takes Blaine's
body away that's when Dutch realizes
it's using the trees to move around so
he decides to set a bunch of new traps
that will force it to move along the
grounds because as we all know it bleeds
we can kill it well lucky it doesn't
decide to it suck while they're
preoccupied with all this construction
work and totally vulnerable because that
would have been pretty embarrassing
anyway they set their traps and Anna
tells them a spooky ghost story the
demon who make strophes off leg then the
predator comes in and walks right into
one of the traps Pancho gets injured in
the confusion and the predator escapes
and Mac loses his mind again and goes
after it then Dylan goes after Mac but
it doesn't end too well for either of
them Billy decides guns are for pussies
and tries to take it out hand to hand
then poncho gets killed - shit man even
Dutch can't take this thing out then the
script decides it's time for Anna to
leave resulting in a lane that will be
immortalized forever in the annals of
internet meme dumb anyway with Anna gone
and everyone else dead all that's left
to stand against this monster from
another world is Dutch so he does the
heroic thing and runs the fuck away and
to be honest who can blame him but then
he falls off a waterfall and lands in a
patch of mud and with the predator
closing in to finish him it looks like
our man is done for we're second why did
it walk right past him when I can
literally see his body he did it go
blind or something
you couldn't see me you know normally I
get to have a field day picking apart
the logical inconsistencies and whatever
passes for modern screenplays mocking
them for their ridiculous plot holes and
lack of common sense but the weird thing
with predator is that the storyline is
actually pretty sight and
well-constructed
events are well set up and rationally
explained so you can understand what's
happening and more importantly the
reasons behind it the story generally
follows a consistent and believable
structure that doesn't rely on
coincidence or convenience to hold it
together or require you to completely
switch off your thinking me in order to
enjoy it Wow it's almost like this movie
was well written so anyway it's time for
the third and final act Dutch has found
a way to even the odds against the
predator but without any guns left he's
forced to improvise his own makeshift
traps and primitive weapons to take it
on this time he's the invisible hunter
stuck in his prey and gradually wearing
it down touch his situation forces him
to fight smarter and more cautiously
using ingenuity and resourcefulness to
his advantage
while the predator gets frustrated and
starts blasting away everything that
moves just like he once did it's an
interesting little reversal of their
previous rules and another sign that
this script is a lot smarter than people
give it credit for and of course it all
culminates in one final battle face to
face no weapons no technology just
Duchin the predator going at it well
until Dutch lures it into a trap and
drops a giant fucking log on its head
and then it has a good laugh and
self-destructs and that's it that is the
plot for predator you know the thing I
really like about this movie is well
everything to be honest for a star is
brilliantly paced cramming an amazing
amount of plot action character
development and exposition into just a
hundred and seven minutes of runtime but
somehow it never feels rushed or
incomplete neither is there a single
scene or piece of dialogue that feels
flabby or unnecessary the quieter
moments go on just long enough to let
the tension and foreboding rise to a
peek before punctuating it with scenes
of short brutal violent action it's also
amazing how easily and effectively this
movie switches gears
and even entire genres it starts out as
a straight-up action movie with all the
classic elements you'd expect a diverse
team of tough guys with unique skills
and personalities a simple objective
plenty of action and intrigue and a
growing suggestion that all is not quite
what it seems the action scenes are
competently sure we get to see the team
working together as the units
making use of their various skills and
abilities swap and banter and insults
and generally kicking ass the first act
is almost a mini movie all by itself
culminating in a big set piece battle
that takes care of the supposed bad guys
and resolves a lot of the questions
raised in the setup but then the
predator shows up and the movie takes a
sudden turn into survival horror
territory as the team find themselves
being hunted by something they've never
encountered before
a monster that starts to pick them off
one by one their skinless bodies blood
and gore people getting dragged off into
the jungle and having limbs blown off
it's fucking awesome and it's helped by
the amazing location and says the dense
steaming jungles of Central America
create an atmosphere of tension paranoia
and claustrophobia where you feel like
anything could happen at any moments and
it's so helped by smart and restrained
use of the predator itself see
intelligence script writers know that
the true essence of fear lies in the
unknown when you don't know what exactly
you're up against you've got no frame of
reference for how to deal with it and so
you start to panic because it could
literally do anything but the more you
understand an enemy the more you begin
to see their motives capabilities and
limitations and in all too human lights
and the less scary they become as a
result movies like jaws also taught us
that the less you see of a monster
visually the more your mind starts to
conjure up things far more terrifying
than anything the filmmakers could
actually create in reality predator
takes this idea to the next level not
just by keeping its monster off-screen
for most of the movie but by literally
making it invisible when it does show up
it's able to outthink and outmaneuver
its opponents killing them with ease
when they least expects it and on the
rare occasions when someone actually
catches a glimpse of it it's just this
weird distorted shape that shows up for
a few
seconds before disappearing into the
jungle like a ghost predator very
effectively creates the feeling that
you're seeing something uncanny
something alien something wrong even by
the end when the creature finally gets
unmasked you still don't know that much
about sit where it comes from or what it
really wants and that's just fine with
me those are questions I never want it
answered in the first place but by the
time the third act comes along the
movies smart enough to realize that it
can't sustain the element of horror any
longer so it switches things up again
this time turning into a simple survival
story one man alone and practically
unarmed pitties against the stronger and
better equipped opponent forced to rely
on primitive ingenuity and cunning to
win the day
it's a pretty cool message actually
showing that the ability to think
outside the box and adapt to changing
circumstances is more important than
brute strength and firepower it's
assumed the 2018 movie forgot about all
of this the cast is large and diverse
because believe it or not
Hollywood was once capable of casting
diverse actors without the blue-haired
land whales of the world screeching a
boat sit on Switzer no you'd be forgiven
for thinking that the script might
struggle to balance so many characters
but somehow it never drops the ball
there's a genuine sense of camaraderie
and banter amongst the team whether
they're ticking the piss out of each
other on the chopper fly in or making
little references to past missions you
get the impression that these guys have
worked together for a long time their
friendships feel natural and believable
unlike the god-awful movie from 28 scene
we're almost every line of forced
awkward dialogue made you want to shove
a shot pencil up your nose and headbutt
the nearest table the casting is
excellent these aren't a bunch of
clean-cut 25 year olds that look like
they just stepped out of a fashion
magazine they're older they're grizzled
and they're hardened bites off life
experiences they smoke they drink on the
job and they chew tobacco because why
the fuck not everyone feels distinct
well-rounded and well-developed with
their own unique personalities an
Outlook that shapes their
decision-making Blaine is brash and
overconfident thinking he can take on
anything and as a result he's one of the
first to die his death puts his best
Renmark on a path of revenge that
ultimately proves to be his undoing
Billy on the other hand is quiet and
brooding but he's got a kind of
fatalistic personality that causes him
to sacrifice himself when he might have
otherwise made it out Dutch is the smart
well balanced leader of the team he's
experienced and good at his job but kind
of world weary and cynical especially
when it becomes clear he and his team
have been used he's also one of the more
open-minded members of the group willing
to contemplate the idea that they're
fighting something that none of them
have ever encountered before and hats
off to director John McTiernan the guy
actually manages to coax a decent
performance out of Arnold I mean he's
not going to be won in any Oscars as if
anyone cares about the Oscars these days
but he effectively sells the idea of a
rational man that's increasingly out of
his depth struggling to deal with the
situation he doesn't understand
Dylan meanwhile is the outsider of the
group he's not one of the team he's kind
of rusty when it comes to fieldwork and
he keeps their true mission a secret
from the others most of the group are
pretty hostile towards him as a result
especially Mac who even threatens to
murder him at one point you give up as
for my dad I'll be real quiet here well
he kind of redeems himself as the movie
goes on showing a willingness to pitch
in and help the others and even risking
his own life to try to rescue Mac it's
an interesting and surprisingly complex
character arc that never feels forced or
simplistic and it's helped by a great
performance from Carl Weathers proving
he can be more than just Apollo Creed if
I had to level any kind of criticism
here I'd say that Anna could have done
with a bit more development I never
really got a sense of who she was why
she was working for the rebels or what
she really wanted it's not like I needed
her whole life story or anything but a
little more backstory or character
development wouldn't have gone amiss
with her honestly though that's pretty
much as far as my criticisms go predator
is a violent gory clever perfectly paced
tightly written action horror science
fiction extravaganza an unapologetically
awesome slice of 1980s nostalgia that's
actually way better than pretty much
every bland war
so an action movie being shot by
Hollywood these days it's a movie that
gets basically everything right and
every failed attempt at a sequel
crossover or reboot only serves to
highlight just how much better the
original Wars so do yourself a favor
pour yourself a beer liquor a copy and
give it a watch because the drinker
heartily recommends it's anyway less so
I've got for today
go away

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

hello welcome to off-the-shelf reviews
it she hosts Ian and Garrett hello and
today we're joined by Jeff either which
we just recently cloned as you might
remember previous Jeff had an
unfortunate accident and he tried to
kill us so we've got a clone Jeff who's
here to do the review and today we're
gonna review multiplicity him won't you
give us the synopsis well the story
follows Michael Keaton's character Doug
Kenny who is a hard-working family man
he works so much for his construction
firm that he has no time to spend with
his wife or his two children so he just
happens to come across a doctor who's
perfect perfected the art of cloning he
manages to get a clone of himself and
his life slightly gets better up until
the point he decides to get more clones
for himself then things start to get a
bit crazy this is a film by writer
director actor Harold Ramis who's
probably most well known for perhaps
Ghostbusters and Caddyshack or Groundhog
Day yeah and you can kind of see that he
likes to work with some of the same
actors again and again yeah so this film
it literally sits within his realm of
filmmaking quite comfortably so if
you're already a fan of Howard ramus
movies you definitely know what you're
getting yourself in for with this film
and to an extent it is a family drama
movie with some some adult jokes thrown
in there this is a very light hired
movie it's this kind of situational
comedy really isn't it there's there are
some gags but mostly what's meant to be
funny about it is the little pickle that
he gave he's getting himself into having
loads of copies of him
it's a film that does actually kind of
ask the question but it doesn't really
explore the issues of cloning like the
implications of it this is quite a
farcical kind of approach to it where
the idea behind it is that you would
have more time in your life to be able
to uni always say if I could split
myself into two I could do both things
at the same time yeah that's kind of
where the idea of this has come from
quite literally there's nothing really
scientific about the cloning especially
now when we've actually have claimed at
living beings now the plot premise does
seem a bit silly but it's like you say
it Gary a Gary say it the nail on the
head it's more about the idea of what if
you could make a copy of yourself that
had all your memories as well up until
that point you kind of always have the
the question is like what would you ask
yourself if you had the opportunity to
and you know the idea is kind of there
like the very first time
Doug meets Doug is that it did you or it
I can't be it you mean you think I'm the
clone that's right clone Doug can't
believe that he's the clone and they
have to prove it to him
I thought that there was quite nice but
after that it's just kind of it's just
it's just silly time see I I go against
everything these guys say you don't look
at this film too deeply it is Michael
Keaton Michael Keaton is a fucking
awesome act there and you get four
versions of him in this film you know
you've got your normal Dirk any who's
trying to do everything to look after
his family and you know do his best at
his job and things like that then you
have Doug to who will get to know us as
Lance later on and he's just the the
aggressive one the go-to guy who's
constantly always working you know he's
killing one yeah yeah as soon as he gets
that lever Jackie's like yeah man I'm
handsome yeah he's good at construction
he's like they bump chairs more man than
the actual dog so don't you then get
Rico the the the polite and then later
on you do get number four who is uh well
a little bit not all there shall we say
see say for that reason I mean yeah we
take the blade out to an achievement
they well II sleep in you know yeah we
call it special but it's for me it's
just Michael Keaton all the way through
I just love the way that Michael Qian
manages to you know appear on screen
talking really really intelligently you
know getting straight to the point and
then can immediately just turn to this
aggressive person and be like I'm gonna
smash your head in with a hammer in a
minute if you pissed me off for in
destroy Ted let's bring Ted down yes yes
I got so many spikes of Beetlejuice
coming from his performance in this film
Oh scary what do you think of this which
did actually make me think I would
probably rather be watching but you know
it's it's one of those it's one of those
phones isn't it you know we're not
saying saying it's the best film ever
made but you know going back and
watching it again after god knows how
many years ten fifteen years of seeing
it it's just it was fun to think that
you know at that time in 1996 the
technology was new you know they did
they recently that year just come off of
no professor with Eddie Murphy which you
know is slightly better movie it just
doesn't have Michael Keaton in it for me
and and they you know they took the
technology and you know you can see
through it you know having four dogs on
screen you're like oh they're not really
dead but looking into the history of the
making of the film as well they Michael
qian's performance were so perfect on
summer so I'm shocked
they didn't have to digitally add
anything into the background they just
went with Michael Keaton and his stunt
double and then obviously superimposing
on top of that I do at the same time
have a thing for Andie MacDowell in this
film she is my my mother next door shall
we say kind of character and this fun
wife character who's obviously trying to
keep Doug anchored at home but obviously
understands that he has to go off the
work to make the money to build up the
house and that makes the family
storyline a little bit more survivable
so we say fun while watching the film I
mean for me Andie MacDowell just doesn't
really get out of the realms of eye
candy I pretty much tried to ignore her
performance should we say cuz it wasn't
it wasn't particularly it wasn't
particularly on par you could definitely
tell that she was acting but there's a
one scene where we get a couple of
scenes actually we're here in a
nightdress yeah
the supporting characters as well we've
got Brian doyle-murray in it as well
Eugene Levy you know you've just got was
it John Dylan John de Lancie from q4o
Star Trek you know these side characters
are more you know just a little bit of
comedy action to bounce off from Michael
Keaton's performance but they do keep
the keep the jokes going the pace going
but it really ultimately comes down to
getting all these different versions of
Mikey into one room and having them just
have these verbal arguments so pretty
okay this is unbreakable you can't even
try to even bend this role alright
nobody nobody has sex with my wife but
me hey doctor fabulous role Doug
fabulous role as the film progresses I
will say that there's a two-hour running
time as the movie it is actually quite
long but there are the quite there are
quite a lot of very nice scenes
throughout the movie where you do have
all of the the Michael Keaton characters
Doug Kimmy's kind of sneaking around the
house and this seems where you know
where one of them's you just coming home
from
and the other ones just finished doing
the dishes and they have to quickly swap
over and the wife's just like did you
just change your t-shirt he's like no it
cut this on all day you're crazy and you
do watch like some of the other
characters started to feel crazy when
they really when they have conversations
with him and then 30 minutes later he
doesn't recall the conversation that he
said because they've just swapped him
over again
Wow great let me show you how to walk
the dog you just showed me before dinner
oh right that's right I did I thought
their play on that was actually quite
quite interesting actually very well
pulled off and like you said about the
effect of having having multiple copies
of him yeah talking the self there's
quite a lot of times where they just cut
two separate Michael Keaton's where you
can tell the film you know they're all
film separately anyway yeah but their
interaction with each other in that
eyesight to eyesight or eyeline was was
spot-on every single time yeah I like
that I like the little nods as well I
mean they didn't go into too much of the
science of cloning it was a simple case
of take the blood stick in the Machine
and wait for it to go ding you know but
there was one part where my pians just
about to get himself cloned and you know
he just brings up the fly with Jeff
Goldblum and just basically says you
know I've seen the film you know and I
don't want this to happen to me in a
ways eating and it's just melting I was
like yeah that's good teleporters sorry
but did you see that movie the fly Jeff
Goldblum comes out he's got these
enormous
you know I mean peripheral vision is one
thing but you know this is it's a bad
look he's always eating everything with
little hands and everything I'm sorry
I'm sorry if you'd like Adam Sandler
films it's very similar to those cut
that kind of concept well Ben Stiller
maybe yeah Ben Stiller but that kind of
sort of I mean for me I find those films
particularly average and for me
this film is fairly average it certainly
wasn't a laugh a minute for me but there
was a couple of gags in there the the
premise built up too and you know some
of them are cringe-worthy and some of
them they might make you chuckle a
little bit I don't think that there's
anything there that would make me avidly
want to watch it again but yeah you can
tolerate it as no problem
yet the film does get very corny and of
course the film does have to add the
drama element - yeah when things start
to spiral out of control when there are
multiple clones walking around and the
number one the original copy of Doug
wants to go away like on a boat trip for
just a couple of days just or just to
play golf and he leaves all of his other
clones to run his life or in Wally's
away and of course everything that could
go wrong goes wrong the rules that he
gives to them are all broken and then
when he comes back you know his marriage
is a sham the house is falling apart
he's everything has gone wrong and so
you kind of have to it's it's typical
tropes yeah and then it's okay so now I
have to pick up the pieces and
understand what I've done wrong and the
film's kind of message is kind of it's
ham-fisted
straight to you if you don't really have
to think about it and it's and the
message is that you enjoy all of the
time that you have even though you may
not be doing the things you want to do
the time that you do have even if it is
just passing having breakfast in the
morning is still quality time yeah and
so there is a really sweet message from
a very sweet movie but it does take its
time to get to that point the scenes do
there they are not always as funny as
you as you would expect I mean I am very
fussy with comedy movies anyway so I
will be honestly I did not laugh that
much throughout the movie at all however
I still was engrossed within watching
all of the Michael Keaton's interacting
with each other so it does carry you
through the movie - to that point C that
is the bridge of it if you're watching
multiplicity you're watching it because
you're a Michael Keaton fan and you just
want to watch multiple versions if in
hey Mac hi back
see your favorite scene ah see big fan
of the movie but my ultimate favorite
scene has to be where Andie MacDowell
the slut states with the three clones
while the real Doug is away she she ends
up sleeping with the the camp one first
then normally goes downstairs and
mistakes the rugged number to clone for
Doug again and sleeps with him on the
sofa and that inadvertently takes the
stupid clone upstairs and realizes he's
got a massive hard-on and picks him up
to have sex I'm just like yeah you go
Andy Mike down three times Bob she said
you never went three times I think my
favorite scenes I don't I didn't really
have a favorite scene in the entire film
I really enjoyed the whole experience to
an extent but I would go if I had to
choose favorite scenes I would probably
go with all of the Eugene Levy scenes
yeah from the the mishap at the
beginning where he's he's pair making a
new driveway for the wrong house or
whether he's got the silly watch from
New York and it's in New York time and
so he turns up to work late or and and
just him turning up at the end to help
out
Jeff your favorite singing well the only
bit that actually made me laugh was when
Andie MacDowell shags the three copy but
since Ian already took that I'll have to
go with Andie McDowell's nipples I
definitely recommend this film I
recommend it because it's it's a classic
comedy and for an added bonus you get
Michael Keaton pulling off a
extraordinary performance I wouldn't
rush out and watch it just on our say
but you know if you come across it watch
it
it's fun I would say this is a hangover
movie this is a you know it's it's
something you don't have to think about
whatsoever if you just want to watch
some some goofy situational comedy
moments I think it's enjoyable and I
think the the ham strong message within
it is is bearable I wouldn't say it's
over overly funny but it is a typical
Howard ramus movie and I I can't really
recommend the movie I would say who and
what Beetlejuice instead if you really
want to watch a Michael key
recommend the movie Jeff if you like Ben
Stiller films and Adam Sandler films and
you think they're funny and they
entertain you then this will probably
entertain you if you're looking for
something that's a brain switch off
again that could entertain you but if
you're looking for something that's
really going to feel like a valuable
spending of your time then you'd
probably be better off avoiding it
you don't think dramatic aren't you
thanks for watching
hello Gary
all right
welcome Gary Thank You Man gasps there's
a fight down there later sister we're
here I go
hey bro
thanks fortune off-the-shelf reviews

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

hello welcome to off-the-shelf reviews
it's your host Ian and Gary hello and
today we won one by JLA and today we're
gonna review another earth which came at
the end of 2011 and was a Sundance Film
Festival Award winner Ian why don't you
give us the synopsis for another earth
well the story follows a girl called
Rhonda who causes an accident which
claims the life of a man's wife and
child she is in prison for years
and when she is released she starts to
build a relationship with this man
all the while with another earth in
orbit of her her earth that's the big
first appeal to this movie is that when
you look at the poster art or the
trailer for the movie it kind of to
begin with sells itself to you as this
science fiction drama and about another
earth that has just appeared over space
of four to five years in the film time
just coming closer and closer to our
earth and so we call that f2 and the
film you would believe would be an
exploration of this science fiction
phenomenon which is you know completely
implausible perhaps actually happening
but the film is not about that per se
that's sort of like the Outer Limits
Twilight Zone or facing for this
heartfelt drama which is unfolding under
the backdrop of this happening the the
story of this film is amazing I I simply
can't praise this film enough the the
the right brit marling she wrote it with
Micah Hill and he directed it and she
just plays this amazing character I
hated her right from the start I will
admit the writers beginning of the film
she causes the accident which claims the
life of John burrows a wife
the Sun and I just wanted to reach in my
TV and punch her but I was just like
nope she's playing a character this is
how she wrote her just go with it and
following her story all the way through
with this other earth in the orbit
mm-hmm it's just there in the background
I'm like I feel so beautiful the film
kind of really does hit you very early
on with a kind of emotional gut punch I
mean she's she's celebrating she's a
very intelligent girl we get that right
from the beginning me we know she's off
to a very successful university after
like MIT so she's celebrating if she's
drinking and she's driving home and
don't drink drive they'll say that no
but she's listening to the radio and
it's the very first announcement of
another earth and here's where she's
hanging out the window and and of course
it just cuts away from her to the family
kind of they're just you know they're
sat there at the park
that's all kissing each other and
they're smiling and they're happy and
it's just out of nowhere
Bob the robot he looks to me like a bomb
she's in there all right like light and
you kind of think that the scenes gonna
end but it doesn't you actually see her
get out of the car to go over and you
know you she sees the wife's body in the
car she sees the husband in the car and
she goes to the backseat and you just
let the child sit in the backseat you
already saw the windshield broken it's a
very gut-wrenching opening sequence they
really do set the precedent for the rest
of the film you know the kind of mood
the timing of the whole film immediately
you realize that this is a very serious
very kind of thoughtful and
thought-provoking like expose on what's
about to happen to this girl and it
doesn't it doesn't hold back any punches
you know that you can really tell that
the the film is now beginning to focus
on the emotions and the psychological
responses that are about to come as a
consequence of that event and so
immediately brings you into that and so
that the concept of this other earth
that coming into it as you can progress
through the film it begins to become
more and more apparent that this other
earth isn't really what the film is
about the other earth is just there as a
reminder for what is ultimately going to
become a metaphorical representation of
the possibilities of the choices that
this girl will face and could face and
the is set in I think it might be New
Hampshire the the way the shots are
lying together this is visually very
beauty isn't it you know like they don't
have a very big budget in the film but
the the architecture of the houses that
they are as
setting and the scenery that the place
is actually depicting it's almost very
English isn't it you've got this kind of
real sort of historical sort of sense in
the film and it comes together as a
really artistically shot piece it was a
very urban backdrop and you see lots of
graffiti and you know you see a cleaning
in the school and it's just kind of that
rundown kind of look and the film
quality sometimes is very grainy there's
a couple of shots that are really grainy
that you would consider very amateur but
and also in tangent with the editing
style and the camerawork where the
camera will just jump zoom in moments
you know but it's it's punctuating
moments of her thoughts and of her of
her not being able to deal with the
situations that she's in there's a scene
where she sort of breaking down after
certain relationships have escalated in
certain ways the way the camera will
kind of just hazily shift balance left
and right or just rock almost like the
levels of insanity that she's going
through and so I think that the editing
the camerawork in the stylistics all
worked in capturing and emotive what the
characters were expressing also see I
like I said I I just wanted that he
never sees such a just awesome character
Rondo I mean as soon as she comes home
as tried this you see her trying to get
along with her family she knows what
she's done the family know what she's
done it's been four years that they're
trying to build a relationship again
they take her back to her bedroom and
she just she just rips it strips it back
down to a simple bed and a picture and
without prison cubicle yeah and I just I
just watched
Brit Marling play her and just watching
her walk from home to work and over to
John's house just those those long shots
of her just we were heard up you know
walking with the with the IRA for the
background which is so beautiful you
know compared to compared to some shots
that we do have in the cinema are like I
put this one next to Optimus Prime
transform
for me it was just so beautifully done
that just the camera work if this film
is a film about exploration but it's not
about exploration of another earth it's
actually about the exploration of the
psyche and the consciousness of a person
who makes some very silly mistakes and
carries a great burden of guilt for it
and the film uses the other earth to
kind of bring out certain metaphorical
and metaphysical ideas and to enable the
moral of the tale to be told and I think
the way it does it it could be argued is
absolutely beautiful just imagine that
you're asleep and then you wake you're
not sure where you are not sure if
anyone else is around
what would you probably do first you
likely would look around and say hello
hello you're attempting to find am I
alone we here on earth would like to
know the narrative is split up in quite
a few sequences where you'll hear sort
of the fourth wall you know radio
broadcasts and TV broadcasts or or you
know a scripture sort of being read out
and each one sort of poses the viewer
watching the movie to ponder these
questions whilst watching the actual
narrative of the film play out because
the two of them only saw sometimes
lightly connect where one of the most
poignant points in the movie is asked of
you as to what would you honestly ask
yourself if you were faced with an
identical version of you from another
earth yeah but the film doesn't actually
go there there's a lot of questions
asked in this film posed to the viewer
which the film just doesn't explore
which is a shame and it is a opportunity
here for the filmmakers to really
explore some very philosophical issues
but they do tend to shy away from it and
just kind of present more of the drama
that's unfolding which is still
fantastic so on some levels the
philosophy is quite shallow but if you
have an open mind and are perceptive to
some of the filmmaking techniques that
have gone into this you will be deeply
richly rewarded with the conversations
that you'll have sparked from this movie
or perhaps your own research or your own
values as a human being because this
film is a real testament to the
exploration of the human heart that for
a lot of viewers will find very
difficult to watch their shame to me
keep your mind clear and that's it you
will have peace of mind my dear don't
worry
learn to adjust yourself see does it
that this film is just so perfect and we
we literally could sit here and take the
film apart scene by scene but you just
you just have to watch this film if you
can get a copy of this film you will be
sit down you will watch it you will
question it yourself you will question
their characters the way they have
delivered to you - boy love you
brit marling performances yeah fantastic
the fact that she has written the film
or co-written the film really means that
she is that character you know she she
has her heart and soul in every scene in
that film and you there's not a single
point where you are broken from the
spell of the believability of the film
it's authentic as it could possibly be
and she's a beautiful incredibly deeply
strong character she plays a fantastic
female role and one of the beautiful
things about the film is that ultimately
this exploration of the psyche is coming
from a genuinely female perspective and
the film loses nothing for that I mean
as three men trying to describe to you
and sell to you the idea that this film
is worth watching
one of the things that I would say is
that it was a real eye-opener for me
into also the female perspective on and
the depth of female perspective on human
interaction
oh good you can start where you finished
I was wondering if I could talk with you
about something not now a little bit
later Pharisee there are some
jaw-droppingly beautiful moments in this
film and a lot of them come from moments
where there is nothing actually said or
spoken it's just the way that they react
to each other but there is one moment in
the film that really captured what I
thought that the film was perhaps about
and it's the sequence where she's
telling him the story of the Russian
astronaut in space and she's talking
about how he has to how he's forever
listening to this tapping and it's
driving him insane and he's gonna have
to go weeks and weeks listening to this
tapping in he's tearing out the console
and everything else you mean you're
picturing this she's just telling you
the story yeah and there's the moment
where the two of them are actually
starting to connect where you know then
actually introduced it to each other
their names they just kind of have this
a work relationship but they're now
actually exploring these issues and she
explains to him how the astronaut got
over this noise by blocking out his mind
and just replacing it with music so
learning to love something that you
would Bible in tenses drive you
crazy
which is in essence an echo of their
situation and so I thought that it was
absolutely beautiful and he goes into
his imagination and he'd go help them he
doesn't hear taking anymore hears music
and I think I have to agree with Gary on
that is that my favorite scene is that
scene
there's also one of the scene which
really stood out for me too which is
where she stood on the beach and it's
getting close to the point where the
transfer is going to happen for the
other earth and it's a really
beautifully shot scene where the earth
is beginning to get really really big in
the sky and the way the colors are
saturated and if there's just this
really sort of peaceful moment where
she's having time with herself and and
looking and you there is no dialogue
from Brit Marling character in this
moment but there is just the radio like
playing in the background and it's a
scientist you know talking about the
other earth and exploring the philosophy
of what if you could meet the other you
and what if you could effectively look
in the mirror but look at it in a
different way you know what if these
subtle changes how do they echo and
reverberate through life and the the
beautiful thing is a wonderful thing
about the film is that in those moments
they sort of they take you away from the
dialogue and away from the interactions
of the characters and they just have
those ponderous moments and there's
another moment in there as well where
they discuss Plato's cave and they they
raise the questions fantastically in
those films and in this film and when
they raise the question they give you
the moment just enough time and the
timing of the film to really allow you
to ponder it and think it for a second
think about it and then they carry you
on through the journey in the film see
I'm I'm gonna break our norm for a
moment because I'm actually going to
talk about my most hated scene III like
I said I absolutely loved this film
I loved that what the director did and
the act actress did but there was just
one moment and spoilers if you're
planning on watching it stop now stop
watching this review because
Rhonda and John end up you know building
such a relationship that they return
back to John's house and end up having
sex but this is before Rhonda has
actually told John that she was the
cause of cause of the accident and I
just felt such betrayal you know at that
moment thinking you still need to tell
him he's still gonna hate you and all
this is just it's it's it's not worth it
so I absolutely hate that scene but I
absolutely love the film and I cannot
recommend this film enough you you
really need to watch this but there's
another scene that we haven't talked
about yet and that is the the hospital
sequence where the old man yeah that the
old cleaner is dying and he's blind and
she starts writing in the palm of his
hand and the film sort of only shows you
half of what she's writing but we we
guessed that it was forgiveness which is
also in essence the crux of what the
entire movie is about
and so there are so many subtle little
things like that in the film that are
only there if you are if you remain
invested in what you're watching because
if you want a science fiction movie
that's explaining this otherwise you're
only gonna get about two minutes of
content in the film which which was a
fantastic sequence where you have the
two operators of Seti set the f1 and set
young to talking to each other and it's
the same woman and they have the moments
where they sort of both getting upset
because they both have had this shared
life yeah yeah there is a synchronicity
and they they believe that in the end
they realized that that synchronicity is
broken at the moment that they see each
other the moment they look in the mirror
that you know there's the possibility
then that the mirror image is are
causing somebody to look the different
way you know
at the moment that somebody looked up to
the right to see the other earth on this
earth they look to the left to see the
earth on earth too
and in it explores the idea through that
metaphor of what if you look at yourself
in the mirror and decide to make a
different choice and there's some
beautifully layers and levels at which
they explore that transition and and the
development of Brit Marling character
starts out in this cold winter setting
in which she you know has no fear and no
in fact she attempts to embrace the
coldness and freeze out the pain that
she is experiencing but as the film and
she dresses in this really kind of over
like extremely covered and looks like a
hobo to begin with she looks like it
looks like the jailbird that she is but
as the film goes on the scene and the
setting warms and she becomes more and
more feminine through it and begins to
dress and express herself and more and
more
warmth and empathy as the love that she
has between John visit Bishop Burroughs
John burrows character you know and that
all you also get to see her character
blossom as the film goes on yeah so as
I'm as a piece that it's it truly is a
really artistic film piece in terms of
its direction writing music editing
camerawork it is a fantastic film I
think some viewers could be bored by the
film not really exploring some of the
issues that it does but I think if your
your mind is open enough to it I think
you'll just dive right into this film in
all of its philosophies I think of
fantastic just to explore even on a
surface level and I really recommend
that you do watch another it shouldn't
be missed
I love this movie of course I recommend
it thanks for watching off-the-shelf
reviews
that I know

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

hello and welcome to off-the-shelf
reviews its your hosts Ian and Garrett
hello and today we're joined by Jeff
hello and today we're gonna review a
movie that came out in 1989 and directed
by Brian De Palma and that is has all
T's of war Ian why don't you give us the
synopsis well the story follows Michael
J Fox who is playing private Erikson and
he is assigned to sergeant Meserve squad
played by Sean Penn they are given the
mission to scout out a known vce patrol
line but along the way Sean Penn decides
to kidnap a young village girl for the
process of raping along the way to try
and boost morale Michael J Fox takes it
upon himself to try and bring these men
to justice but with the backdrop of the
Vietnam War a lot of the commanding
officers in the army try to push it
under the carpet and Michael J Fox tries
to bring it to light this for a war
movie is thematically very dark this is
a movie that doesn't have the bravado of
perhaps Full Metal Jacket or platoon
this is a is a movie that is essentially
dealing with premeditated rape actual
rape and these soldiers dealing with the
repercussions of what they've done
whether they moralistically feel like
they've committed a crime or not
this is coming from director Brian De
Palma who has quite a rich history in
cinema you could compare him perhaps to
Oliver Stone or some of the other great
directors out there because obviously
you're going to compare this film with
other Vietnam War movies and I have to
say straight away that this for me is
not essentially a war movie this is very
much a war drama and De Palma is very
good at working within mix on reserve
films because we've seen him do science
fiction we seen him do gangster movies
and we've seen him do Stephen King's
adaptation of Cary which for me is
actually my favorite De Palma movie so
we've already seen that he is
a fantastic talent and with this film we
get to see him exploring an actual true
event that did occur during the Vietnam
War which he wanted to make the movie
about almost straight after the incident
was was printed but of course the
Vietnam War was still happening at this
time so the movie was was was put on
hold and obviously he didn't really have
the career to sort of be able to dictate
to the studios I'm going to make this
movie so this film actually came out on
the back end of him having this
successful career and coming out after
all these other successful war movies
yeah unlike unlike Apocalypse Now Full
Metal Jacket platoon casualties war
isn't saturated with these massive huge
battles with with large-scale you know
soldiers going up against each other
there's there's barely three events in
the film where a battle does occur it
really focuses mainly on Michael J Fox
Sean Penn and the three other guys in
the squad and it's just such a billet
brilliant portrayal of mainly their
acting ability I mean Sean Penn
obviously we know now is a is an amazing
actor but back then his portrayal of
Meserve is just outstanding he has this
crazy look in his eye
you think he'd tell me you look who
think about he can be calm one minute
and then ready to fuck you over the next
minute and backed up with say Clark and
and Hatcher and and and and Diaz as well
you really get this feeling that the
Erickson is just forced into this
position and has to kind of stand by and
be ready to do something but unable to
actually do it
it's the 20th century man Jesus were
supposed to be here to help these people
yeah this film is an action-packed and
you would think that a Vietnam War movie
would need big boughs and it would need
that kind of the big gun fights but
actually this film is all them all the
better for that and first of all is
brilliantly cast
you would not think Michael J Fox would
be brilliant to cast as a soldier my
McFly no way but it will surprise you
the fact remains is that he's actually
brilliantly cast and Sean Penn also all
I gotta say
all five actors in the company perform
fantastically there are nuances that
come out about the qualities of their
character that the the actors portray
right out the gate from the moment the
film starts but one of the things that
really is brilliant about this film is
that the the kind of the bolshie like
bravado of the average american vietnam
soldier comes through in the way that
these characters act now we're nothing
but charred people around me on this one
John and so bring your good luck stuff
like this size
does it feel lucky
looks like not in a soundtrack that is
accompanied by people going whoohoo
shooting their guns but you get the real
sense that there is a loss of naivety
through these characters in just a few
key scenes in the film which are
brilliantly contrasted because this film
is able to switch from a really kind of
happy-go-lucky bright outlook to sudden
very distraught and impacting events
with no no warning you know it just goes
bosh suddenly this thing happens and the
way that the actors present these
characters dealing with it really comes
through that there is this loss of
naivety and that also what comes through
is that this group this company of men
that are forced together by their
association in the American military
that these are just there's a very human
side to this film yeah and it did
portrays the evolution of their
character whilst they've been put in
these circumstances very very cleverly
with subtlety and nuance that doesn't
come out through in many other films one
of my favorites
Vietnam films is Stanley Kubrick's Full
Metal Jacket and Stanley Kubrick tries
to portray all kinds of subtleties in
that film and yeah I would argue that
casualties of war does more to bring out
the very same points that Kubrick tries
to bring out in for Metal Jacket but
does it with less trying to do less and
therefore it does more
and feels bad you ain't nothing man oh
yeah no sweat brownie
with Michael J Fox he starts off as the
cherry you know he's only been there for
a few days a few weeks and he's there in
the villages he's helping them like you
know sow their seeds and work with their
cows and he you know he he's like a
child watching all the rest of them walk
around telling them look you know you
have to listen to what we say or you're
gonna end up you know dead but then as
the as the film progresses you start to
realize that Michael J Erickson with all
the horrors that he's seeing is starting
to realize that then they're they're not
they're just just to help and kill the
enemy they're supposed to be helping and
and we build what they're actually
helping destroy at the same time as when
they're having these big bowels it's
really only Michael J Fox is character
that gets it
yeah the other four I like and we're
just gonna be like for our American
soldiers and their because like one of
their mates dies they're like God kill
the goddamn coups you know where is
Michael J Fox realizes that there is a
difference between VC and the average
Vietnamese hmm and like he starts out
and there he doesn't want to be rude to
some of the children yeah to give him
stuff so instantly they very cleverly in
scenes set precedents which allow you
windows into these characters and the
contrasts between them and Michael J Fox
his character stands out straight away
that he's a bit different he's thinking
differently to other guys he's got a
moral underpinning that the other other
four in the company don't have and
that's what kind of segregates him from
the rest of the group yeah yes once the
the the leader of the group has made
this decision as to what they're going
to do and that is to go in abduct this
girl to take her on on patrol of them at
a rapist so that they can have some fun
yes they did whilst they're working and
Michael J Fox is obviously is the what
you could argue is the only
moralistically aligned character in this
film or because it's based on real
events the actual part you know the
actual person was moralistically attuned
to what was right and wrong awesome man
don't you like
girls haven't you got a parrot say your
problem what's going on your son
Eriksson here don't want a ball to think
how come I don't look was it chicken
shit is that he is that your problem
Eric right yeah even though you're in a
war-torn country and so whilst this
group is kind of internally the some of
the characters are even you've got john
c reilly and john leguizamo yeah they're
kind of you've got done see why this is
his first ever movie and unfortunately
I'm not his greatest fan I think a lot
of his work is very childish hmm and
very slapstick and his his first
appearance in film is almost that
character because he does play quite a
immense I would say he's mentally
handicapped soldier yeah he's constantly
almost getting them into trouble and he
almost doesn't understand right and
wrong and then you have John Lee gizmo
who is he's kind of also afraid of his
superior officers yeah it's kind of
afraid to say anything out out of tune
and so when Michael J Fox in him and
talking he's like we you'll back me up
you'll back me up and he's like yeah
well because what you're saying is right
and then when the time comes you have
backs down and so throughout the film
you've got this long touring out pier
but Michael J Fox becomes more and more
secluded from the group so the point
where it's like yeah you go on point
yeah you go and take the risks now
because we're gonna you know what's your
back because we're gonna kill you if you
try talking out of place yeah and so
there is a you could argue with some
very fantastic horror elements brought
into that because my career Fox
encounter is really naive and he's not
really sure how how to act in this
situation or who to go to to try and try
and put a stop to this and the film
really follows him trying to bring
justice to the events that do unfold in
this film the army causes some weapon
buddy day
this is what
this gun this is for fighting this is
for fun so it's very harrowing to watch
and it is a very uncomfortable film to
watch as well III just love it obviously
what once they have kidnapped the girl
and they have taken her out on this
patrol you start to you start to realize
that you know Michael J Fox like you
said it is being forced outside they
don't care what happens to him anymore
but you you're wanting him to survive
you're wanting him to get to the end and
then it makes it more than that this
film had me like shouting it this way
yeah straight from the off I could see
what was coming and you can see the
characters and how they all unfold like
for instance that the one character that
is clearly going to be like yeah I'll
back you up and then you can see and
this is how well it's portrayed you can
see that he's not got the courage to
background no no and it had me shouting
at the screen going they're not gonna do
it you know he's you need to stop him
like now and yeah you know once they
start going through that process and
they start setting up these things you
get emotionally involved with what's
going on and you really feel for the
Michael J Fox is character and you begin
to really hate on yeah like Sean Penn's
character you almost feel duplicitous in
in the abduction as well because you
follow them from their conception of the
idea of like an you and you know Michael
a fox is like hahaha is funny you know
like almost like a joke yeah I'm not
really going to do this and yeah it's
when it's actually happening you feel
like I'm because you're there with the
platoon the whole time and you're just
like this it makes you feel
uncomfortable this is wrong if they
should be there is actually building up
to the rape sequence which is really
difficult to watch very powerful isn't
it and very powerful and I would also
say that it's almost like the the film
score it doesn't necessarily fit the
genre of a war movie no because it is
like it's almost panpipes and yeah and
it's not your traditional war movie
score but the music really backs and
emotes everything that's happening in
the movie you feel the decision or the
despair yeah my buddy Fox character is
going through especially with the music
score is phenomenal for this film the
emotion given up for me from the girl
who the the actress who's playing the
girl it's just so brilliantly
brilliantly portrayed you know she's so
realistic that yeah you I actually for a
few instances forgot that it was an
actress that was performing this because
it felt so genuine yeah you know and
she's coughing she's ill she's barefoot
you know dead they're dragging her
through pretty much napalmed areas and
you can see her feet again blistered and
they're putting on they're putting on
full packs of ammo and rations and
making her carry this stuff and like
Jeff said you just want to reach into
the screen pull up a gonna fucking kill
everybody else but you can't you have to
sit there and watch much like Michael J
Fox is you know he's forced he's forced
to accompany them because it's like he
says halfway through what would he have
done in that situation would he have
wasted a sergeant and three other
soldiers and you know he would have been
men in enemy territory territory with a
a raped Vietnamese girl you know which
would have just asked for him just to
kill her and if he had gone back he
would have been probably met the firing
squad friends anyway and then and I mean
the brutal obviously after spoilers
after they've dealt with the girl and
they've returned to base this this for
me is now the second part of of the film
is Mugsy foxes or Erickson's way of
trying to deal with they're trying to
bring it to justice and it seems like
everybody he goes to you know explains
to him that it's bad but it's not as bad
as what they're trying to deal with
which in a way is right but then at the
same time completely wrong I mean
there's that Virginia command just does
not give a shit yeah he he goes that he
goes to sea he goes to see his captain
played by the brilliant Ving Rhames and
Ving Rhames just starts to seem by
telling him the story about how he was
born and how his child was born on the
day I was born my mom and I popped out
took one look around she it asses is two
creeks Texas and then pretty much just
explains their errors and look I've
split
you up but that's very much all I'm
going to do and then so then Erickson
brings upon himself to go above his
captains and go to the commander played
by the the absolutely brilliant day or
died and and he's an ass in this film he
is an ass but it is it's one of one of
my favorite scenes because you know you
just see the the realism on Mike J Fox
face because obviously he's an actor but
they all died being an actor and an
actual soldier who's been in a lot of a
lot of war engagements you know is
standing there screaming at Michael J
Fox there you can't tell me about
screaming because I've heard a lot of
fuckin screaming this country all from
American soldiers you know and basically
just explain to him that one one girl's
death isn't gonna make a difference but
you stood there screaming at a TV like
yes yes maybe if you have been there sir
maybe if you would have heard her
screaming
you'd feel you don't tell me shit about
screaming boy I've heard a lot of
fucking screaming in his country most of
its come from wounded American boys it's
something that cult sort of haunts the
the the latter part of the film and
that's where he tells him he's like you
bring this forward and these guys you
know they're gonna get a slap on the
wrist you you're all you're gonna do is
black in their careers and then there's
a very nice point in that scene where
reminds you that they're all 20-year
olds
yeah and you kind of psychologically
forget that when you look at these
soldiers that they are so fucking young
to unions and just kids dealing with the
shit that's happening haunted by the
fact that they've lost their you know
their squad mates or their friends
during this war in such a short space of
time and he tells them that if you would
bring this forward you can have to watch
your back because your entire squad will
be out to kill you yeah and do you do
you is this worth it and you watch my
career Fox is haunted character
throughout the next few scenes trying to
decide what in this situation now what
is moralistically right or wrong should
he look out for himself or should he try
and bring this to justice again and it
just seems like it's inevitably just
gonna be brushed under the carpet is
another
at the Vietnam War frequency yes sir you
fuckin maggot who the hell do you think
you are here in that report recommending
reserved for a Bronze Star he pulled you
out of a VC Tunnel boy had a shit with
that girl it was wrong but he's a kid
Eriksson he's 20 goddamn years old and
you're gonna ruin his life he saved
yours
from the outset you are a gun izing over
this moral dilemma right alongside
Michael J Fox is character and the film
does not let up on you in being engaged
in that moral dilemma
and I mean arguably you could say that
it's maybe you know two two and a half
hours of agonizing really personal but
that's what is so great about this film
it's a true story it's you know the the
acting never ever breaks you from the
spell that you are really there with
that company of five and it never ever
lets up on you on that process of
self-reflecting it really puts you in
that situation and causes you to
question what would I do if I was in
that situation and because of that it is
possibly one of I think one of the
finest Vietnam movies which give brings
over all the subtleties of the
difficulty of the war hmm on a grand
scale by condensing it down to what was
happening on an individual scale I think
Michael J Fox carries the burden of all
of these things throughout the movie and
expresses it fantastically because we're
so used to seeing him be this light airy
friendly totally approachable guy to
watching him look so hot and so
destroyed come the end of the movie and
I think it's also quite funny that when
they were shooting some of the scenes
they had Sean Penn on the side sort of
shouting at Michael J Fox and belittling
him telling him to go back to TV land
where he belongs because he doesn't
belong with professional actors and then
Ron Devon will go action and J Fox black
it's so good the acting is fantastic
never once do that nobody's performance
brought brought me out of the spell and
made me think oh they're acting you you
are there in Vietnam for the entirety of
that film even though it's not you know
like the score is not traditionally a
Vietnam movie score and the sets are not
huge elaborate their idea of the odd
nice pan scenes type thing I love
Vietnam but by and large you know it
could have been any jungle anywhere in
the world for the most most of their
scenes but it's just brilliantly acted
and you the characters enraptured you I
always loved that sequence where
Erickson has been separated from the
squad later on and he he's talking to
his friend and they're making there with
that like convoy of villagers and
soldiers coming out from the from that
burning village I just love that whole
dialogue sequence because you have this
this new recruit bouncing round them
like a rabbit you know and he's asking
them questions and you know Mugsy Fox is
trying to have this discussion with his
friend and they end up grabbing this
rookie and he's just like if you keep
fuckin bouncing around here we're not
going to see you later on and then two
seconds later you know the rookie hits a
mine and falls into a spike pair and
you're just like shit that's that's the
reality of the reality of this war and
of of many wars that you know you've got
to keep your shit together but you've
also at the same time got to keep your
humanity
absolutely just because each of us might
at any second be blown away everybody's
acting like we can do anything man
and it don't matter what we do but I'm
thinking maybe it's the other way around
you know maybe the main thing is just
the opposite because we might be dead in
the next second maybe we got to be extra
careful what we do so I think my my
favorite scene from the film it's it's
just before one of the grand is more the
one of the more grander action scenes in
the film and that's on the river with
with the long bridge and there they've
reached the point whether - whether
doing the reconnaissance now and they're
pinpointing where the enemies are and
the girl who's endured so much up until
this point is is gently coughing and
shrimping is just like just kill her
just stick her with a knife shut her up
whatever yeah and she's desperately
trying to stifle a cough Michael J Fox
is desperately trying to keep her alive
against the rest of his squad and
they're trying to keep her quiet and
it's just it's that brutality where it
is like you killer you sticker and none
of them have got the guts to do it
not even the captain has got the guts
got the dense but then you've got Clarke
who is an honest-to-god fucking psycho
yeah anyway and he wants today he's
gonna like it he's gonna do it and like
it but I thought that scene there was
that was one of the most gut-wrenching
sequences and the sequence that follows
it is it's gonna make you feel ill as
the scene plays out but just to bring it
back to a lighter note I like the scene
where where he's slapping John the gizmo
across the face and telling him to do it
because he was really slapping him
across the face for out that take and
they shot that take more than 14 times
meant only given has gone on record to
say Mitch hit me every single time for
every take he didn't hold back and that
was because the actors really felt their
parts they were giving genuine
performances they were their characters
they understood the the subject matter
they were dealing with and really
invested into it even portrayed these
villainous American soldiers in that
light
yeah it's hard to say it's a favorite
scene because it is so gut-wrenching and
so awful yeah
but ultimately leave that the pinnacle
of the film is the rape scene and I have
to say that it was so well done
I'd say it's my favorite in inverted
commas scene it's it's one of the
highlights of the film which is where
that is so well done so well handled and
the crescendo - it is so engaging that
when it actually happens you know you
are right there you are wincing
alongside the whole at and it wasn't
gratuitous yeah it was sufficiently well
presented but it didn't hold back
anything you know you get to the stage
where you know you might you were right
there with Michael J Fox and you are
feeling all the emotions that he's
feeling the anger the discuss the hatred
the the shame everything everything
comes through in that that one scene and
the the fact that that scene is so
powerful and gives so many emotions to
you is what makes it really one of the
best constructed films but best
contracted scenes in a film around to be
honest it was it was very very well done
was the last time you had a real woman
Sarge
she was real
I think she was real I recommend that
you watch casualties of war I have for
all of the Vietnam War movies I would
say that this is possibly my least
favorite of all of them just because it
is it is entertaining but it takes you
to a very dark place and for the most
part when I watch my war movies I like I
like to be entertained I also like the
spectacle hmm and I also like the
portrayal of of these these real people
in these extreme situations and
casualties of war it does that
phenomenally well it's just it's a very
difficult film to sit through on
repeated viewings even though you know
what's coming and I think it's because
it's so haunting especially with the
music and especially with with the
ending it is I mean it's quite a dark
ending and it does sort of have a a sort
of odd upbeat kind of final few scenes
just because the film is so dark if it
left left it on that low note you
probably would feel quite ill for days
after feeling duplicitous in the events
that unfold in it and at the same time
you can't help but sympathize with the
fantastic Michael J Fox so if this is a
film that definitely belongs in any war
movie collection and if you've never
seen it you should definitely check it
out just so that you can put it there
next to Full Metal Jacket then platoon
and all of the others it's a it's a
great movie I highly highly recommend
this movie McGary is one of my all-time
favorite war movies mainly because just
the portrayal of Erickson by Michael J
Fox Meserve by Sean Penn
Hatcher Clark Diaz Ving Rhames
captain Dale die these just these
dialogue pieces and acting on screen is
just so much so much more than a lot of
the massive huge battles you get we were
soldiers in Apocalypse Now and platoon
those those are still brilliant war
movies and I would take nothing away
from those films but it's I hate weary
soldiers
it's it's just it's just seeing
it's just seeing Michael J Fox do
something other than the characters that
we are so used to that it does leave you
with this haunting feeling and by the
end of the film by the end of the film I
sit there and I go I can't watch that
again for at least another year and then
I have to take out again and say you
know what it's time to time to watch
Michael J Fox and Sean Penn pull off an
outstanding performance it's absolutely
brilliant definitely the most realistic
and perfectly balanced Vietnam War film
out there definitely watch it thanks for
watching off-the-shelf reviews
you think he tell me you buku Thank You

hello and welcome to off the shelf
reviews it's your host Ian and Garrett
hello and today we're joined by Tom oh
yeah
and today we're gonna review 2004 movie
Deadman shoes by British director Shane
Meadows who's perhaps most well known
for his This Is England movies and TV
series yeah won't you give us the
synopsis for dead man's shoes uh well
the story follows paddy Constantine's
character Richard who's just returned to
his hometown from being in the army and
sets out to exact revenge on a group of
drug dealers in the town I just want to
go on record and say I fucking love this
movie is awesome
Tom I think is a brilliant movie when I
first saw it I was it was instantly a
favor of mine just the atmosphere and
its proper Shane Meadows This Is England
sort of style depressing little low
budget almost and he didn't it was a
revenge story but he didn't go in there
like all guns blazing like I'm gonna get
my revenge he was calculated he's
manipulated and I was really yeah this
isn't the river this isn't the same sort
of revenge as we've seen in perhaps Kill
Bill or old boy hmm throughout the
majority of this film we don't actually
know what Richard's character is
actually implementing this revenge for
you just kind of along for the ride yeah
and it is kind of humorous in its style
as well it's very very black comedy and
I think that's very much a British
comedy as well because this is just like
this is England it is almost
encapsulating the essence of Englishness
of the British kind of countryside yeah
and those sort of small insular villages
yeah and there's like almost at the
beginning where Richard sort of coming
back and he's just all standing in
certain areas and it cuts back to black
and white flashback where he's having
memories of things where when he was
younger before he went to serve yeah I I
absolutely love Paddy Considine in this
he just he is a phenomenal actor anyway
but the first
I saw him was in dead man shoes and just
the way his character can switch so
quickly he can go from being this quiet
mild-mannered man who keeps himself to
himself to up in your face ready to kick
the shit out of you and then at the same
time you know go back to being like oh
I'm really sorry I you know I don't know
what came over me but obviously as the
film develops and progresses you start
to understand why he's like this and
where these feelings are coming from and
at the same time the the drug dealers
you know are just a bunch of fucking
assholes yeah you in immediately I meet
Lee fucking hate them yeah from the
start
well I didn't necessarily hate them from
the start I mean you could they were a
bunch of assholes yeah there was nothing
really there was nothing really depicted
in the early part of the movie that
would tell you as a as an audience
member that these are really really
scumbags yeah they're just that it just
seemed like you're a typical drug
dealers in movie sense but you you don't
really know what it is that they've done
that would deserve this this animosity
but just kind of bubbles away you know
from I don't know the opposite he said
he remains calm but he still got that
power about him he's there for a reason
he's gonna get his revenge no matter
what but you don't know what how he's
gonna do it or anything like that
probably my favorite scene is when is
like you said earliest first dialog in
actual actual whole film and that one of
the drug dealers comes into the pub he's
acting Billy big spurts he's there and
selling pills and stuff over the snooker
table and straight out in the oh yeah
that's wide open
does he know he's there he's come back
for revenge and he doesn't necessarily
recognize who it is
at first no no no no and it tweaks it
tweaks and that's that's a brilliant
part of the film as well
Kelpie Matt the fuck you're looking at
Shinobu and the people who he's coming
back for when they realize who it is and
the guilt like they feel really good
yeah there's that sudden realizations
we're a Atmospheric yeah I look I love
that how they are able to to progress
the story through these black and white
flashbacks the rest of the whole film
certain you know the present is filmed
in color but then every time that they
do happen to bring up Richard or his
brother Anthony it flicks back to the
black and white flashbacks and that's
where you start to start to understand
these characters a little bit more about
how they act and what they're doing and
just you just want to fuckin reach in
and rip out their hearts but it you got
to keep with the film and obviously
following following Pelican Stein's
character he just he he doesn't know
what what's happened no you know they
had these flashbacks and obviously you
learn the story but obviously Richard
wasn't there see I kind of I felt
sympathetic towards the Richards
character yeah but I was also for the
early part of the movie quite
sympathetic to the drug dealers because
they are being tormented yeah and you
don't really know why yeah and so and
the the first sort of because the film
does subtitled day one day two day three
and it gives you that the timestamp like
it's almost a documentary and he kind of
toys with them like on the first couple
of days were yeah he just breaks into
every one of their houses and Eva puts
Beryl makeup on them yeah spray paints
their hair or just trashes the place and
so you'd like it's quite it's almost
playful it's still quite aggressive yeah
in the way that he's doing it especially
when he turns up with the gas masks on
the first time out the first time I wash
this so it's somebody gave me a copy and
was like you caught watch his film I
initially thought it was gonna be a
horror movie and those first few scenes
where he does kind of walk into their
house and he stood over one of them and
he's got the hammer in his yeah it's
very it's very horror comedy slasher
movie and yeah yeah he's got the gas
mess and you're thinking you know he's
gonna kill them and then it cuts to the
next day and they've had their hair
change there's really quite funny and
you you just like you know they're
blaming in Shover
there just like you fucking did this you
fucking do this and then I think it's
horribly turns around and says I'll know
it was Anthony's brother and that's
where the comedy just stops yeah the
film changes tone almost instantly then
yeah just like just like it has happened
for the characters also happens for the
audience and it is a very well is a very
good narrative device to keep you
invested in the film and I've also got
to say for all of the actors involved in
this project when you're watching the
film you almost forget that they are
actors yeah I don't know whether like I
said because it is almost that
documentary if stamp or the style of the
film where it is very gritty and real
but you completely forget that they're
actors yeah because it does feel very
real all of the dialogue scenes the way
they interact with each other you get a
sense that these have been friends for
their entire lives
yeah it really comes across very well in
this film that I love the little scene
like when when he he says to Anthony he
says like I've got to go tap into town
mate you know I've got a few jobs to do
and then obviously it cuts back to harp
and he's gone in and he's seen the other
two guys in the hut in the flat and
they're there and they're doing fucking
drugs and shit there's that really
little comedy bit where they it was a
tough gets his mate to snore parmesan
she you get into the mood of it and then
herb goes downstairs and you see this
figure stood at the door with the gas
mask only need points he beckons him
over and then he punches the glass and
he's just like fucking hell yeah
scary shit magic seeing that we spot I'm
so spooked you just watch this drug
dealer just panic and just go running up
the stairs oh yeah
it needs the humor to kind of even out
how brutal some parts are and how cold
the actual story is and why he's there
yeah whole reason why he's there but it
doesn't need that bit of humor but I
like the way it kind of switches just
something quite humorous you could be
like hi as funny and then it's like well
concentration like this is cold like yes
like Richards character as well it's big
it's like the scene where he he sneaked
into the house and they've all gone
upstairs and there's a little continuity
area there where they change positions
as they go understand but anyway they've
gone up there and he's downstairs and he
puts in an assortment of cocktail of
drugs yeah into the careful they all
pour it into their pot noodle don't wait
to the line to the line it brings me
back to another horror movie mistake
that these three guys are you know they
know that well they feel that he could
be in their house and they you know they
want to go around and they want to
search but instead of searching the
ground floor they decide to go and meet
yeah the stairs I'm like typical horror
movie mistake you're all gonna die now
yeah in the cupboard where he's like he
pulls out that big massive samurai sword
and then he passes hurt the little it
got to a certain point where they all
had to stay in the same room as world
where they're doing the weightlifting
he's like you fed these fish carries on
because of the drugs slowly like it's
captured very well in film as well I
don't know whether it it's kind of the
slope Anne's more whether it kind of
gets that dream focus
where you just watch the actors just
kind of kind of slip out of reality yeah
and again that kind of playfulness is
there when Richards in there he's
tormenting them and he's just like dance
with me dance with me party it's very
don't be used to just waiting do that
all sudden snap moment again
yeah it just becomes violent and deadly
where he just starts executing them
that's when he goes in there that's
popping in their faces like you just
realized how calculated and precise all
of this is and there is a couple of bits
where you can kind of you kind of have
to just go with the flow where it's kind
of like his setups in order to get them
where they need to be at any given time
yeah it's kind of just like you kind of
take it for granted it's like when one
of the characters like fuck this I'm out
of here I'm disappearing and then it's
like turns up turns up dead and you just
like well it's kind of it's kind of hard
to swallow that he's managed to get them
all exactly round like that maze as
precisely as he had planned yeah but I
take from that that Richard you know
with you you get from him that he he was
in the army you know that yeah the crops
you store he's been in he's gone into
the army he's left his brother behind
you know this this things happened to
his brother he's returned back but he's
a fucking trained professional I mean
you could argue that you know he he
could have been discharged he could have
gone AWOL we could have done all this
stuff but it's like the look that he
gives to Sonny when they pull up in the
car and Sonny gets out and he's just
he's not scared of him and that to me
gives me that the his character is
trained and can fucking kill each one of
them without even you know breaking a
sweat
yes cuz he's um Paddy Considine he's
he's a smaller guy than that Sonny guy
and he just remained powerful
remains his power and I don't know it's
just something about him in that film
that is totally different to what I've
seen him act before yeah yeah for me
it's like it's it's like looking into
the eyes of Rambo
you know he's mom and yeah but he's he's
calm and he he's just he just wants to
do what he wants to do but he will
fucking switch our point and fucking
wipe always now there just seems to be
an edge of crazy in him throughout oh
yeah hell yeah they serve just one of my
other favorite moments in the film as
well there was where when they go
upstairs and he's written on the wall
like changed oh yeah and which is
actually a medical term for sick
patients when they're they're breathing
sort of becomes labored and it's a term
which would usually indicate that
they're about to die
yeah and writing that on the wall is
just kind of it maybe it would have been
too sophisticated for the drug dealers
to actually know what it meant yeah yeah
there's an audience memory you can kind
of just go at and then it literally gets
to the point where when he kills off one
of them and he just writes in blood on
the way one down yeah that's when you
just know it's the rate it's on this is
what's gonna happen till he gets his eye
that's what I love about it I mean watch
me on DVD there are deleted scenes of
Richard going around and and killing
them but those scenes edited out I
actually thought that gave the film a
bit more mystery you know like like with
the guy who is killed on the toilet he
disappears goes up the stairs and then
they find his father body you know I
think I think that actually gives the
film a bit more depth because you know
seeing the death you'd be like oh yeah
he's already dead but you know spoilers
obviously for people not see it you've
seen it yeah when he goes out the room
you just you just think he's going out
the room you don't realize that Richard
is just there
eating like a fucking predators there's
a moment where they all kind of clock
there is him and they got to do
something about it and they attempt to
go and find him in the farm to try and
get him birth they give out do a deal
leave us alone
it's that I love that seniors obviously
they're driving off with the axe in his
arms wide open like fuckin what's your
favorite scene well I mean I have so
many favorite scenes in this film I
especially loved the scenes between
Anthony and and Richard where they are
just sat there talking
it's just that just feel so real of
brotherly love between the two of them
you know they're just they're just
having a conversation even though all of
this dark shit's going on but as an
extra bonus
I love the review of Toth it's at that
whole segment where he's come into the
house he's filled them up with it filled
the cattle up with drugs he's let them
go on this fucking massive trip he says
they'll go to space and they'll never
come back down and he executes he
executes sunny and any executes the
other guy and he's got herb sat on the
chair and he pulls in this luggage
carrier and he opens it up and you've
just got this guy's squashed body into
this it's mangakas arms and legs sort of
chittering everywhere the head neck
looks like it's been reversed over by
car exactly and that for me it's like
horror movie but it's it's the way that
he talks to her about it and it's just
like this is your friend you want to
give him a kiss and herb is there in
tears I'm just like
you know it's so tense and he's one of
the last one standing as well and he
kind of like blah was like a full sense
of security almost like gains his trust
like where I'm not gonna kill you like
this is all good like you're the one
chosen new I'm just gonna leave alone
and then the last guy in moments like
just say yes again why you can kind of
have some simple simple yeah for these
assholes
yeah I think my favorite scene in the
film I think we've already mentioned
it's the confrontation one of the first
confrontations between the two
characters where they pull up it well
they're driving past in this fucking car
and they drive past him he's just kind
of stood there just like hmm yeah so
they drove hasn't reversed back a little
bit now he gets and he comes up to him
and he's just like you know what's the
issue you back off and he's like no it's
a you know you know afraid of me are you
news like ya know you see this you're
right here anytime and it is literally
you can just you know the two heads are
just kind of bashing off and you just
see if he just kind of gets intimidating
is like you're making me nervous you
make me nervous
it's like the only chance you've got to
get in that car and fuck off and you
just like you should go don't fuck
around with this guy anymore like they
threaten ranchers threatening you ain't
just behind fucking words
I watched over you when you were asleep
I looked at your fucking like it was
that far away from his light in him
you fucking hear me sing get in the car
would you recommend the film you
definitely if if you've not had the
chance to see dead man shoes yeah it is
a fucking dark bleak depressing movie
but you will feel good at the end of it
I know I know that sounds surprising but
at the end of this film you will
actually feel good the way it's filmed
the cinematography the music the acting
all of it is just absolutely perfect I
highly recommend it without a doubt
there's a twists in it as well there's
things like oh really like okay
but yeah the feeling the atmosphere it's
just a really really good film
definitely recommend it and anyone who
knows what's a mother is like like
they'll instantly know like why why it's
such a good film and how is such a shame
at this film to be honest I also
recommend Deadman shoes it is a very
interesting look at sort of the revenge
formula especially in terms of the way
the narrative is told and it is also
acted and directed fantastically I've
seen this film a couple of times now and
I still laugh at the jokes the dark
humor and I still get excited as it's
sort of crescendos to its the film's
ultimate climax yeah and the the twists
that do come in the film are fantastic
because you're you were waiting is an
audience member watching this film to
actually understand what the whole film
is actually about because you do only
get just you get drip fed the
illumination throughout the film so yeah
I definitely recommend you watch this
film and definitely that's another
reason why I like it like the revenge
like you see a lot of revenge films
where they go in and like the main job
is to kill them but there's a lot more
detail and how he does it and like
there's a lot of feeling in the film I
think definitely which is what's gonna
bring us now into our spoiler section
where we're actually going to talk about
sort of the last 10 15 minutes of the
film so if you haven't seen it yet and
you don't want the ending spoiled stop
watching now
so now that richard has brutally and
sadistically executed all of these drug
dealer assholes
it's we get more of the flashbacks which
explain how his brother committed
suicide after he was brutally assaulted
attacked and and nyeon raped and all of
the drugs that they used on him just I
mean you can't where you don't really
know how much of a time period that this
sort of abuse stretched on for but it
was enough time for him to just hang
himself which when you actually see the
image you kind of you kind of get choked
up almost because throughout the film
his brother is with him yeah and they
have conversations and he's kind of
luring you know the brothers kind of
loitering in the background whilst all
the other actors it's kind of like a
sixth sense moment well yeah he wasn't
even there and you just kind of you get
choked up and then you like you know
what yeah fuck those drug dealing and
it's all I can kill them oh you did
already
but they comes to to kill off the last
guy and he's already started fucking
with him and his family too
by giving the kids tonight yes mask and
I love the way that that last guy is
revealed because he's actually in all of
the flashbacks all the way through the
film but you don't notice him you don't
know him because they're obviously
you've got herb there you've got talk
you've got Sonny you've got the other
two guys and they're all they're doing
the wrong thing to Antony in it and then
you realise towards the end that the guy
with the baseball cap
was there the whole time and it's the
way that it's the way that Richard says
to him you know you could have fucking
stopped all this and the guy you know
he's been living with this guilt for
such a long time that he could have
stopped there any point but he was being
egged on peer pressure all that kind of
stuff he you know this is why he he left
them so he was at least wise enough to
actually remove himself from that
special group and actually start a
family and just try to to be a normal
morally upright person but the torment
that they enduring the flashback the
torment that they put on Antony
it comes across so where does it's
almost like ceremonial like what the
music can like they put on the the twigs
isn't it yeah not the - it's a full
crown yeah yeah and I saw this is
Satan's house yeah insane is I don't
want to go in Satan's house of that
dragon him with the rope around his neck
and you just there and this is why the
film makes me feel so good towards the
end because richard has actually gone
out and done what any of us would
probably do in that same situation
probably not as extreme you know but
ultimately builds up and I love the way
the morally twists at the end where he
has the guy and he gives him the nya and
he says to him you know I'm the monster
now you have to kill me because I don't
know what else I'm gonna do I think
about your boys think about your wife
you know you have to take me out I just
want to sleep with my brother yeah and
if you have the flashbacks the image
just builds up in this there was a
really interesting point a moment in
that in that scene where he was like I
didn't give a fuck about my spastic
brother he was a spastic and he did
nothing but embarrass me you did me a
favor and I was just like Oh mm oh yeah
that came across to sincerely yeah I
think it was for effect yes because I
think he did obviously he he loved his
brother and he looked after his proper
this whole time and I can understand
that living with someone or being a
carer for someone who is mentally
handicapped it would be a massive mental
strain and burden on you yeah but I
think that would it make you a stronger
person and I can understand that
obviously he left to join the army or do
whatever because he wanted to see the
world and then obviously coming back to
realize that this is what's happened
yeah and the space that he's been gone
is just also enough trigger point to
cause him to react this way yeah and I
do love the the pretty much the the
black and white if you will of being the
good and evil and him literally going
you know what I've killed all these
people I the Venge to my brother
you were the dickwad that didn't have
the balls to stop this yeah now you will
be the ones who actually end this and
and it is such a poignant ly beautifully
poetic
max to the fielder where you're almost
still not quite sure though because he
has just switched on a fuckin six time
at any point that he would go yeah stab
me stab me he would take the knife and
just kill him you did yeah in Rio until
the very moment where he was laying
there in his own pool of blood that it
was like okay now it's over you can
almost start breathing normally again
now yes it's such a climax
it's the visuals as well see once he
stabbed Richard and he hits the floor
and the guy stood there with the blood
on his hands and obviously he runs out
and I cameras is moving away yeah i
watch whenever i washes my mind always
triggers of you know how is he gonna
carry on his life you know there's he
gonna go is he gonna go home and explain
to his wife you know his wife would be
like where have you been all morning I'm
just gonna stop this guy I think even
yeah it was quite striking how old the
blokes were who were taken advantage of
Anthony how actually old they were and
like how are you supposed to be a bit
more responsible than that that's why I
have order but then obviously it showed
the scene of when he was at his
brother's funeral and it meant younger
his shaven stuff so time must have gone
on and it makes you think like you know
you have guilty moments in your life
where you might creep back but obviously
all of those guys for it was put to bed
and that's that's another good thing as
well because I get creeps back on him
though he's back and there was one thing
that I take from this film is if anyone
pissed me off to that extent I'd feed
them acid the tagline of this film
though is is along the lines of that
what is in Richard is potentially within
all of us
yeah and that is what I think is the
most engaging part of this film is that
you it is so believable that you are
what he does is also within all of us to
react that way when something that we
love is taken away from us as such a
brutal and horrific fashion and that is
just testament to how well this film has
put together
I just went 12 me and animate yeah I
didn't they they all held your hand
I didn't you didn't
I need to do a thanks for watching
off-the-shelf reviews help you Matt the
fuck you looking at
