ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Trent Trent Trent and and and Parth Parth Parth talk talk talk about about about the the the film film film of of of the the the week week week...

I don't know what you're talking about. You hate listen to her podcast? Wait what? And you made a swear on our lives not to tell anyone Jordan? Is that true? I like your podcast, Alice? What is your podcast of them hanging out with your smartest and funniest friend? Did you just groan no when I said hanging out with your smartest and funniest friend like that? Like that? Did it again? Not? Like? First of all, a podcast takes a lot of work. Okay, you have to organize the guests. You have to do a Google calendar, and then you build up following. It takes a lot time and I've been working on it for a while. Blue Trent hell apart, it seems another another day, another dollar, and um, as of recording, it's almost it's almost Hello weekend. Muh mm hmm. But as of as of as of listening, where is this? Yeah? As of listening, I guess you are approaching the end of Hello weekend? Yeah, the tail end, uh you would be. This is Sunday, Sunday morning, hungover from hollow weekend light listening Bodies Bodies, Bodies discussion. Yeah, So if we can provide any kind of relief for you. Um, we're happy to do, so why don't we just begin by asking each other what we ate? You know? Yeah, we're also happy to occupy, like the Monday morning walk to class end or like Tuesday doing dishes, Wednesday mowing the lawn. But you're definitely doing something else. But part needless to say, what have you been eating? Um? My roommate Claire Pelle and I are in the apartment with the one from the Phantom Menace episode previous guest friend at the show, Um, and we were wondering what we wanted to have for dinner. I didn't want to buy food, and we and Claire was kind of gunning hard for mac and cheese, which we made. But I was hungry afterwards, so I heated up some Costco chicken taketos and scarfed three of those down before prior to recording. Yeah, and it seems like you're you're you're peppy as ever, three three taketos later, you should have seen me pretty pre three taketos? Are you sluggish post taketo? We? I was sluggish pre taketo. I'm I'm peppy and ready for the day. The days that was over you're ready for the pond. Yeah, part you. I don't know if you can see yourself, but your your face is so close to the webcam that it's kind of like the Joker, like talking into the camera sort of thing. Wait, wait, do a voice. Since no one can see you. Every day he doesn't, people will die starting tonight. I'm a man at my word. I took a screenshot of your well, not what you were doing, the laugh, but just while you looked manic and while I looked concerned. Thank you for indulging me. You see, this is how crazy Batman's made Gotham. If you won't order in Gotham, Batman must take off his mask and turn himself in. Every day he doesn't, people will die starting tonight. I'm a man of my word. Yeah. Oh you're editing this, aren't you? Damn? Yeah? I guess so. Yeah, have fun doing that during Hello weekend. You have to plan accordingly. But trent Um, what have you eaten? To be technical about it? I guess it was. I went to Fritz's. You know that place. Sophia, Alexis and I just went to dinner there on Friday. Yep, we me Jackson Sarah went there. Friends of the show went there for lunch and I got like a little like cookie sampler because they have so many cookies. And I got the sampler and I had one of the cookies from the cookies sampler and it was But before that, if we want to be thorough, I had a BLT from Bagel Nash very good and an apple. Um. And then after the us Uh. I know this is a little forward thinking,...

This is a little forward of me. But after this, I'm going to have some chicken gioza and frozen broccoli. Wow. I don't know fun an episode we've ever discussed what we're gonna have after past and present? Wow? But they can think in of the future. Um, we can we can get into the next segment of this show, you know, past the intro. Should I cue it? Or should we just stay in this zone forever? Oh? This is zone? What an interesting way to put it. So if this is one zone, what would you describe the next zone as? Like? Would you say volatile? Hazardous, little, hazardous, tumultuous. That's those aren't the right Those aren't the right words. Um, do you think dangerous? Wait? I think maybe we should call it the danger zone down Rock down, Down, Down Down, rocking up. Listen to Wow to Wait were you tother you about pop Star? Y? Pop star with the funny dude? I just um pop star? Oh, I should have declared today and she loved it. Doesn't it feel like a movie that should have come out in two thousand twelve? And note, well that's part of the reason why it bombed. Oh is it they came out at the wrong time. It's so good though, m hmmm uh flat Liners Jolson macro film shot by yon Da Bant Now I want to see flat Liners? Have you seen it? I haven't, but I just think it's so funny that he includes the shot by yon Da ban because that's a cinematographer and I'm like, that's such a like insider film joke, like nobody, nobody would care about that. The other thing I love is this is that the sound of the helmet that they use is the sound of the tripods and War of the World. Oh, I know that this is the episode where at the end we'll reveal the cruise the contents of Cruis that all right? Well? With that with that all being said, Yeah, my name is as Iffy. I'm a guitar Zack on a tour. Yes, I make sure all the instruments are tiptalk. I love the road. You know, this is kind of a perfect job for me. But my favorite free time thing is flatlining. Flatline is when you technically lower your heart rate until um well you're dead, still dropping and you can catch a glimpse of the afterline. Got the idea from the film Flatliners, old Schumacher film shot by Yonda Bon. You know, I try to fit in a f line sessh at least once a week to one hit him. Oh whoa that ship my pants. Welcome back to craft Services where we talk about the movies. Each weekn be talking about a film and hopefully have a remember of that film to talk about up with their experience working on the picture. But this week we last week. But last week we already talked with somebody that worked on the picture and it was sound Mastermind disaster Piece a k A. Rich Land rich Land um cool awesome interview composer of our film for this week and last week Bodies Bodies Bodies really nice guy. Also the composer of Marcel the show Under the Silver Lake. Uh. It follows probably additional examples A bunch of video games as well an Adventure Time episode as well. Yes, yes, yes, yes, but he was nice enough to talk with us. I think it was a pretty great interview. I think you said it was one of your favorites. Yeah, yeah, absolutely. You know, every once in a while you get an interview that reinvigorates your sense of purpose. You get off the webcam, you're a little bit less sweaty than usual, and uh, it reminds you of why we Why why we? Sorry, I'm just getting choked up.

That's okay. Why don't I take this over? It's about why we podcast? You know, Yeah, I understand. Um, I'm good, I'm good. No, this joke is landing. Um, I just don't know when. Um. Sorry, Trent gave me a very upset look. Um, but that's just for you, that's not for everyone else. Sorry, sorry guys. Um, but that that's the past, and like in, this episode is all about the future. This episode, that's exactly what I'm saying. Good tie in, Um, but now let's talk about the future. Yes, um, I believe this is where we talk about the film and perhaps what the what the film is and what what happens in the what would you say, what's the word for like the log line of a movie or like what the movie is about? What would you say? That is? Oh? Like the synopsis? Um, I believe it's my turn for a ten word Do I get twenty crafts craft services sees points? You do you do? And if I get two hundred craft services points? What do I get? One? Nickel? Um? Very undervalued. You've already done your joker voice. Everyone at home should get out their craft services Bengo board. Yeah, you merely adopted the SPS. Now I was born. Now, I think if one of us gets mad at each other, someone at home will get bingo. M m, well what you kind of you kind of got a little, a little upset with me. No part that that was nothing you ever get? Does your dad ever get mad at you? And you're like, Dad, you yelled at me? And he's like, you know that you think that was yelling? You know, my dad and I actually have a very healthy relationship. But that's cool that you and your dad don't know anyway, that's the child synopsis of this film being reprimanded probably be um, wait, do you want to try to sum it up? That's what I'm saying um, youngsters. I'm combining young people into one word youngsters. Strategic at house, murder happens. Mhm, who could have done it? That's good? So a spoiler free synopsis, but the real synopsis murder question mark. But the real synopsis is when a group of rich twenty someomething's plan a hurricane party at a remote family mansion, a party game turns deadly and this fresh and funny look at backstabbing, fake friends and one party, I'm very very wrong. Do you want to know the budget in the box office? Trent? There are a few things that would make me happier. So the budget, according to the document is um a dollar sign and then a question mark million. So I guess we don't know and or which I guess the internet doesn't know either. I searched on box office Mojo and Wikipedia, and neither of them could give me a number. Is it because it just I mean, not that it just came out, or is it who? Is it because it's their business to release that if they've liked it? I guess so I have no idea. Honestly, UM, I feel like that's kind of unusual, and it is that it wouldn't not make enough an embarrassing small sum or that, or it's but I mean it's reporting its box office but not it's budget. And it's all shot in one house, so the budget is probably small. So what what's what's there to be scared about? But what's the box office? But the box office is thirteen point six million dollars? Which doesn't It's probably one of the low were numbers we've read on the show. Besides like things that have been released straight to HRIO Max, like locked In, So remember that? What a picture? You know? Wait? Did you know Lockdown is no longer on HBO Max. Oh it's locked Down? I thought I was locked In. When are the COVID movies going to start happening? They already have? But what happened during COVID the Michael Bay produced film where Become Covido or something like that, and it kills you within twenty four hours? It's pretty awesome. Didn't he shoot? Like a movie like mostly on drones over quarantine ambulance? Pretty good? Oh? Yeah, I heard you say that. That was good. It's like I gave it three stars on Letterbox. It's Jake gillenhal On. That's that difference. He is and he gives an awesome performance. He's really fun in it. Yeah know what else would be really fun? I like Johan...

Hall on anything? Um? Would the production industry? Yeah, one could say so. And this week it's a little bit short um the fun facts. On IMDb there was eight eight possible fun facts to choose from. Yeah. Um. So in March acquired Bodies Bodies Bodies, a spec script written by Kristen Repinion. In September, it was announced that Chloe A Kuno would rewrite the script and direct the film, but Repenton was but Repinion was later given a story by credit for her final work on the film, screenplay UM, while playwright Sarah de Lap received final soul screenplay by credits. So I guess Chloe A Kuno never actually maybe she did do a draft, but not not one that actually went into production, and obviously she did not direct the film. Holena Reign did UM. In April twenty one, it was reported the Amandla Stenberg and Maria Blakalova work set to star in the film, while Pete Davidson and Mahala Harold were in talks to join the cast, with Helena Rain now set to direct Bacalova said that she was scared to be in a horror film, having been frightened watching them, but thought that A twenty four films were deeper. She said that the film was more like an R rated comedy, but I would just like to say there are deeper horror films that are not A twenty four films. In May, actors Lee Pace, Rachel Senat, Chase Suiti Wonders, and Connor O'Malley joined the film. Principal photography began in one with filming taking place at a Georgian stone manor house in Chappaqua, New York. The film's musical score was composed by Trent our Boy disaster Piece. In March, Charlie xc X performed a song Hot Girl for the film, which was released as a single on July. Body's Body's Bodies premiered at South by Southwestern March fourteenth two and was theatrically released on augusto It's Like Cities and later had a nationwide expansion on August twelve. Trying to hit Me with some punt Pacts. The original draft of the script by Here Soon Repinion bears a little resemblance to the final film It originally took place during a snowstorm and was not satirical, instead being a straightforward slasher film. Hear me working through that burb. Yeah, it was pretty good, Jasper Wolf. The cinematographer had had to teach the actors how to light themselves, as they were practically lighting the set with phones, flashlights, and glow tubes for savoring the champagne bottle. Lee Pace admitted that he practiced for the feet at home using than Duel than Duel's sword from his time in the Hobbit Movies. Thank You for the Celebrity and the Celebrity Shot, Helena Rain has stayed. Each character uses a unique source of light to symbolize the personality of their character. Um B has her phone strapped hips, showing her selflessness for helping her mother and others. Jordan has a headlamp, showing her spotlight for no nonsense confrontation. Alice covers herself in glutube, showing her desire to be liked and at the center of attention. Emma never used as a light, showing her desire to be introverted. Greg and David are never shown to use any light, and the name of the movie and the game played in the film are based on a commonly played improv game called Body, Body and or Murder in the Dark, where players run around in the dark in a dark room while the murderer quote kills players by tapping them, hoping to get away with killing the entire group. Trent, we have played this game? What Sardine's No, not sardines. Sardines is different. Um, what have we played this game? Oh? Wait, no you have not, Jackson Clark, because we played this at eing Actually my bad. Um. So what you turn off all the lights and one person's the murderer and you go around and tap people and then they're dead. Yes, um, although you can play it with multiple people being the killer and one round. Um. While we were at front of the show, Sophia Alex's youing home, we um, I was the killer and had successfully gotten all but two people out. And it turns out that the first person that I'd killed was Sarah Brockman, and she was the other killer. So the killers can kill each other. Yeah, because you don't know who the other one is. So do you just go up and try to make friendly and you're like hey, Sophia, and then you pat her on the back and then you're like, you're dead, and then she has to lay down and she can't say anything. Well, ideally you don't say anything because you don't want to be caught because if anybody sees you, anybody hears anything, then they know that you were close to the body, then it's a bad, bad sign. And then do they like vote and they say, yeah, so what well, somebody has to find the body. Yell bodies, bodies, bodies, and then U lights go up and...

...um, everybody, I said a two minute timer. Everybody discusses. At the end of the two minutes, you vote on who to kill or kick out. And if they say I was the killer, then you got them. If they say I'm not the killer, you continue, go you go. It's among us, Trent, amongst us. I've never played that game, but several people made that reference during Bodies, Bodies Bodies. I think, wait, Trent, you're coming to the Ewing Home. Um on Friday? Is that correct? Tomorrow? Maybe we'll play around, maybe we'll have a fun time. And the funny thing is this game sounds really fun and like easily it was easily explained, and yet I feel like I didn't understand the full premise of the game. After watching this film, I remember you coming up to me and saying that, um, bodies, bodies bodies. The game feels like something that you see in a movie and you're like, that's really fun, but then you quickly realize that there's no actual way to play it. And I remember being confused by that comment. Well, the way you explained it makes perfect sense to me. But in the movie they play one round and then they sort of just like stop. But also as well, that's because they know because the drama ensues. But yeah, yes, but also as a decently intelligent person, I didn't walk away from the movie and understand how to play it. And it's like in The Godfather when they teach you how to make like tomato sauce. You should always learn something when watching a movie, and I think it was a missed opportunity to not very clearly lay out the rules. As a slightly more intelligent person, I walked away knowing the rules. But um, that's cool. But speaking of intelligent people, there are some not so intelligent people and they didn't like this movie. In fact, they gave it one star. That's not not enough. Stars. In my opinion, do you want to give the first one? So the first reviews by CM maybe initials. Maybe it's like CM punk the wrestler part. Did you follow w W W E as a boy? I did not. I don't know who that is. He's a guy. Titled boring movie needs negative star option. One star is as low as it goes. Or he can get a letterbox and he can give it a half star. Yeah, so it says movie is not scary but boring. Typical gin z, drugged up kids acting like typical fools, getting high and drunk, using all the new fun words like gas lighting, trigger, and narcissist. It's almost like it's a satire. Yes, it's almost. It's almost like that. But one thing that I think we should be grateful for is that three people found this review helpful and didn't Rachel have somebody to say on the matter. She did. She said in all caps, please don't waste your time or two dollar signs money money. Um, so it says bought this movie off recommendation of TikTok definitely not worth the twenty dollars. We feel less intelligent after watching horribly scripted, executed and delivered if a lower rating were available, I deliver it, please don't watch for a fee. And two people found this helpful. I'm sensing a common theme of people wanting to reshape the way we we talked about movies. Yeah, and also, why did you buy this movie? Why? Why did you not just rent it? Well, probably because it was so soon after it came out that it was within the it's reviewed on October five. The movie came out in the summer, so they bought it when they could just rented it. That's what it seems like to me. It doesn't seem like there's any other reason. I only was sympathetic first split second because John Sick was front of the show, had to take one and by no via YouTube because that was our only option in terms of a rewatch because it was too late to see in theaters. Was that wait, did we get that on the episode? Last episode? With our note episode No? I think that was pre show banter. Wow, guys, you got an exclusive just now behind the scenes. This is how the sausage gets me. Um. But speaking of the sausage, we have a third guy, Um that left one star review. Also, there were only two one star reviews on Amazon. I had to go to Rotten Tomatoes to get this last one star one I see. But this is from Francis who's verified, and he says I should have waited for the riff tracks and are you familiar with riff tracks? I am. I believe it's like um, Mystery Science Theater. It is, I've seen I've seen a few of these for like Samurai Cop and like maybe Another Battle. Oh, I think you mentioned this on our hundred episode Spectacular. Yeah, and it's just like three guys, like old guys and like glasses and they like of Mike's...

...then a live audience and it's a recording of them just like making funny jokes over bad silly movies. And that sounds so awesome. The older I get, the less the less funny it becomes. But when I was like sixteen, that was and we hit like a maybe a dead pen in the bathroom, it was pretty awesome. You did what? Yeah, But um, I was surprised to see that on here. But I would be surprised if they did a rift tracks of bodies, bodies bodies. I think one of those old men would explode, like it seems like like I mean not not to get ahead of myself, but I don't know if my mom would like this movie. Why is that? No? She probably would. She's a pretty woke lady. I think she'd see it for what it is, have some fun along the way. Uh, my mom loves a good twist, and I'd say this this movie scratches that itch in part. Haven't you said you've been itchy recently? I've been. I've been scratching myself all over my body. Yeah, yeah, you have a rash um. But this movie we like it? Is that true? Or didn't we come into this already admitting the fact that we both like it kind of a lot. That we liked all of the movies we were doing for the Halloween Spectacular Trio movie Fantastical October. I believe we did. Um. I this is the movie I was most surprised by liking. UM. Not that I thought I was gonna hate it, but based off the trailer, I kind of thought it looked stupid. And I think mostly because we talked about how it's a satire and I feel like most things that try to make a satire of gen Z culture feel really embarrassing to me. UM. I don't like things that mention things that are current a lot of the times, because I feel like movies don't do it and not tasteful. It's not distasteful in the way that it's like offensive, but tasteless in the sense that it's like, well, this just doesn't do anything for me. Um, it doesn't feel like they're making fun of the right things. But while watching this movie, I was surprised by how good the satire was in the movie. I'm excited for us to have our inevitable conversation of ranking these three movies because there, yeah, aren't they They three different beasts, They are three different I think you will be shocked by mice ranking of like three different budget levels, one of which is like a question mark. Yes, I mean this is clearly a pretty low budget film, but um still really good. Um. I was watching this for the first time. I was like, really shocked by how good it looks visually. It was just not something I was expecting to happen. Wait, Trent, I just realized this. Do you have a good Bodies Bodies Bodies theater watching experience to discuss? I'm glad, I'm glad you mentioned this. Um, I would you mind if I pulled my letter box really fast, not at all. I was actually going to ask you to do that. Yeah, yeah, if you if you won't pull up your letter box review, I would just start killing people. Start I'm ready. Oh no, I'm always happy to hear your joke or voice in any capacity. So like anything, uh, anyone writes to any creative people, like anything doesn't Everything you write doesn't age very well. Um, and you start to think that you're cringe like fifteen minutes after you write it. But here's what I wrote, and it's from all fifteen says. We're sitting in the somewhat empty theater. Nicole Kidman comes on screen. She talks about the magic of cinema. Everything seems normal, and then I hear a child's laugh behind me. I think this movie is about to be very sexual. Who would bring their kids to this? I slightly look over my shoulder. The parents are struggling to control their kid, who is running up and down the aisle yelling something something thora love and thunder. They have no idea what they They have no idea that they are in the wrong theater. If the trailers didn't give it away or the logo, the first shot of two women intensely kissing plus slight hand stuff caused the child to produce a combined shriek slash giggle. All the other twenties some things in the audience are craning their next to see what the group's next move will be. The young parents then realized their mistake, deliberate for a second, scoop up their kid, and hurry out of the theater, all within the first sixty seconds. I wonder if they ever got to see thora Love and Thunder. And this garnered nine likes, which is a lot for a little guy like me. It was. It was a good review, Trent, thank you. I think my most liked letterbox review is of...

...um, Scooby Doo and like the cyber Chase, you know that, like the animated thing that's my favorite Scooby Doo movie. Wait, like literally, uh yeah, Scooby Doo and the cyber Chase. UM my review, I I won't pull it up verbatim, but it was something like, if you have a problem with me giving this five stars, you should come to my house and talk to me about it. And then I gave my address and I think I got I think I got like eleven or twelve likes. Another one that just while I'm patting myself on the back, it was for Jurassic World Dominion, and it was I spent the whole movie wondering if I locked my car. I did not, because not what a film. We almost covered it, but we're not covering it. We're covering body spodies, bodies. Yeah, before we took that that weird avenue, I was gonna ask Skew, you were talking about how it looked. The movie looked good, and you seem surprised, and does the stamp does that not guarantee things for you by this point? Not necessarily? UM. I think that also. I think there's a lot of misconceptions about what is I think, um, a lot of movies that eight that are A twenty four movies or just movies that were distributed by twenty four that they just bought to be released. And I think that people have this weird idea of a twenty four as its own genre of film, which I do not think it is. It's not. But it's just like if you're ever watching a two film and there's like a naked man who then turns into a monster, or like old people in like a cult circle. You're just like, yeah, you know, I suppose, but it's I guess they I guess they do take on a kind of movie. But did you see Alex Scarland's Man That felt like I have not? That felt like a Bengo board. I feel like when people talk about in two movie, they just mean that like newer movie that's kind of low budget with pretty visuals and a little artsy. Yeah, like a sort of a human drama, sort of high concept. And I think that that just speaks more to the lack of studio funded films than it does Too's creative output. Yeah, because it seems like is more of a haven, not haven, but like UM one of the few studios that is consistently putting out artistically driven UM say what you say, what you will and however cringe it may have become by this day and age, but like scent of the time, I think they're they're releasing hitters. So do I I really like a lot of the stuff they UM they put out. But UM, this movie I guess was from the beginning in film UM and I'm really interested. I did not know until doing some research to that, Ah, it was not satirical at the beginning, and that it was set in a snowstorm. Um. I think that the rainstorm both as a visual Um, I think it just looks really nice. And I don't know how effective a snowstorm would have been. The rainstorm feels more. It's like, it's like a hot and sticky movie, and a snowstorm would have felt weird and everyone would have been wearing jackets and then they would have been running around outside, and I guess, and we're it would have felt more the thing than I think this movie as it is wants to feel. Wow, that never even crossed my mind. But I guess in terms of someone is the monster, But also if you think about it for long enough, it isn't that the monster because we're all the monster and none was the monster. Because sometimes you kill yourself on accident. Yeah, spoilers, um, But yeah, I mean, like, well, why don't you just talk about the twist part. If you're going to kill yourself an accident, please record it, but post it before all my friend friends end up killing each other? Who wants to play bodies Bodies Bodies? Does anybody have service? Yeah? Ties, I get so stressed out every time we play this, someone always has a prime, So how do you play coming can say that if you draw the piece of paper that...

...has the X on it, you are the murderer. Everyone else has to avoid being kills. What is that next to all? What is happening? Our friend is dead? So if you could just like not escalate the situation that I'm not escalating. You're holding the knife and you're moving your hands while you talk, that would be so fucking obvious if I were the killer more. You're always gasolating me, you trigger me. You are so toxic, relaxed, you're silencing men shoot me. I can't believe you're making this about you. But Trent, what what were your thoughts going in and coming out? We'll put Um, I don't know. This movie was fun, Like both times I watched it, I really uh enjoyed myself. Is that is that too complicated of a statement? No, not at all, Um. I think as crazy as this sounds, at least as far as the characters are behaving for better or for worse, this may be the biggest inspiration for my junior thesis. That's interesting, but only as like a gin Z reference point that I think is like cringe e in an intentional way. Yeah. And I've listened to a few interviews with Helena Rain and she said that I think part of the reason why this works is that a the actors are playing their age. They're not and they're laughing at themselves. Well yeah, but but more so, they're playing their age. And they didn't get thirty year olds to play twenty two year olds. And she said that she was like, UM, I don't know how you guys talk. I don't know what this is really, but I have this story, so you She she was really collaborative with them in sort of injecting how they would talk, how they say, like, Okay, if this this is the line as it's written, how would you say it for real? Um? And I think that that goes along, that collaborative energy goes a long way to making this feel authentic, which I guess is the biggest problem with movies that try to make fun of gen Z is that they aren't. They're not putting that effort in um or they're casting people way too old to play way too young of a character. Part we met a man last night and did we not? Who? Oh? Yeah? And at that Q and A with this man, I almost raised my hand and asked him a question sort of inspired by what you're talking about, because I was curious how much like creative improvisation he gives actors like on set, like how much deviation from the script. But it seems like most of the time that ends up working pretty well. But from a from a continuity standpoint, you know, yeah, but part epic Instagram post, yeah, I guess the cats out of the bag. Thanks to Rutger's film, we were able to meet Chaka king Uh, co writer and director of Judas and the Black Messiah, which we did two episodes on, one of which was an interview with Sam Lessenko, the production designer who we talked about very briefly with Jocko King, and we agreed that Samulsenko is an awesome guy. Yeah, and he said the best, the best he literally is. But bodies, bodies, bodies. Sorry, hard to stay on track at a time like this. Do you have any points you want to bring up? The question is do you have any points that you want to bring up? When when we had scheduled disaster Piece prior to me even having seen the film, and um, while watching it, I was like looking out for the music and for the first like twentysothing minutes, um I I was, I was getting really scared because I was like, oh my god, we just got the composer of this movie and he hasn't made any real music for this other than there's some soundtracks songs. And I was like, I guess that's one question, but but that's not an interview. But then body drop happens, and then body Drop happens, and the score is really really effective. I think it's like one of my favorite scores in a while. Yeah. They released it's when before really so Vinyl, and I almost like thought about buying it. I think if I had a record player, I would buy it. And I I would like to say that we when...

...we played Bodies Bodies Bodies at Sophia Alex's house, we played the soundtrack and it is actually very effective at getting people all revved up. I'm sure that works in a revved up way, and as we learned the hard way, like the Riddler theme works in terms of scaring, like making everyone genuinely afraid while playing studience in your in your childhood home. Yeah, but I think that the music again another thing that I learned in an interview was like she was. I mean, we kind of asked it to him and he kind of disregarded the question. But at least in Helena Rain's mind, she was inspiring it off of like TikTok sounds. And I feel like the whole gen z nous of it is all kind of baked into every facet of the movie. UM. And I think that the sound is really unique and really effective um in creating the suspense. Yeah, this was an awesome movie to get the composer for because I love the score so much. UM. I could talk about just like the colors too, and shooting in the nighttime with glowsticks is always appealing to my senses. It's a really really beautiful looking movie, like something I wasn't I don't know, I don't know, like this is one of my favorite looking movies of the year. UM. I just think that for the setting that it's in and um that the way it's using practical lights is really um cool and unique. And I think that since the John Wick movies, I feel like a lot of movies like to use neon lighting. Um. And I think that other than the John Wick movies, none of them have really done it in a way that doesn't feel kind of forced. Except for this one. A really like the visual language. I mean remember the scene where they're all with Lee Pace in the red room. Yes, yes, I think that that's like such a cool the house that the manner they shot at. I think production design is pretty good there. Yeah. I was listening to a podcast about the Conjuring today and they were talking about how why so many Haunted House movies are made, and it just because you rent one really nice house and then you turn it into hell and you kill a bunch of people there, and then the movie is over, and then you release in it in the summertime or October, and then everything works out well for you. And I think this follows that algorithm. Yeah. I just think that it's really well put together, um from a production point production standpoint, um, in a way I was not expecting. Acting, super fun, unbelievable love and ensemble cast. Yes. I really like all the players. I've I've heard several people complain about Pete Davidson and then be like, thank god he died early, and often, though I don't know what what they're complaining about, I feel like he's playing his care. I mean, he's playing Pete Davidson, but that's exactly well. I was like, yes, I understand that he's usually like fun, happy, stoner, nice Pete Davidson, and now he's like jewel pod cocaine asshole Pete Davidson. But like, all the pieces are still there, and so you're kind of still getting the same the same general idea. Yeah, And I mean, I know a lot of people were really enamored with Lee Pace in this movie. Oh do Like people on the internet really like him muscular and forty. People think that he's really attractive in this movie. I believe um good friend of Jackson Clark Ellie Gilbert to um Oh no, no, no, no, not Ellie Um. One of his co workers said that he had overtaken Miles Teller as most attractive person in the movies in two, which I don't know that I agree with, but I mean, I definitely don't agree with the sentiment that Miles Teller was the most attractive person even in Top Gun. TC is right there. It's crazy how oblivious you are to these things when you're I guess mostly a straight man. Because I watched this movie in I was just like seems like a cool guy and it's hard for me to tell who the daddies and zaddies are, you know, to use the gen Z nomenclature. Wow, that was awesome. Um, I mean I'm not wrong, yeah, but yeah, I mean, is there any what? What? What he do you have? I know a lot of people the twist is controversial. Um, seems you're a fan. I kind of can't envision this movie without the twists. And I think, get smart, because it...

...isn't just oh, one of them is killing everyone else essentially for no reason. And I just like that they're all accusing each other and it all seems very genuine and in the moment you're like, it really could be any of them, and then like it wouldn't. The twist is the movie that that's That's kind of what I felt walking out at the theater, that they all die for nothing because they didn't sit down and discuss. I reached I reached a point when they're up hiding in the closet. Um, I reached a point where I realized most we have seen most of the people get killed. Like a lot of the people, it's it's not a mystery how they got so you knew it before before. I didn't intentionally revealed. I didn't necessarily know, but I was like, oh, I wonder if like that's the if we're not ever to know or something like I knew. I felt like I can't be that it's one person because that doesn't you know what or and there's also their friend that UM doesn't come until the end, and I was like, well, it can't be him, we don't know him and be unsatisfying too. Um, I feel like him coming at the end is kind of unsatisfying. Well, I think it's I think it's as satisfying as it was ever gonna be. UM. I'm glad they don't make him into more of a thing than he's there. Then he needs to be UM. But I think I agree with you that, like this movie is the twist. You were either going along with the movie or you weren't. I don't. I don't know how the twist can be the thing that UM like makes or break like. I can't imagine you enjoying the movie and what it was doing and saying, and then reaching that twist and doing a one E D on it, you know part have you seen Oceans twelve of course I have. Do you know it's like a little throwaway line, but do you know how Relie Roberts is playing herself and then she bumps into Bruce Willis. It's one of my favorite sequences. Okay, And so do you know how Matt Damon is playing like her pr person. I'm forgetting him blanking on what his fake name is. I know, it's so funny. Um. And then it's like they go away from that scene, and then they're entering another scene and Matt Damon is talking to Bruce Willis and he's like, when you were talking in the diner, I knew, but but I still think I knew. I knew about the twist, but I still think the movie works really well. And he's talking about the sixth cents. Yes, and that is just what I imagined as you were talking about you seeing the twist before but before the curve. I'm just like Matt Damon, you know, I love Oceans twelve. I think it's a good time. He told me everything was fine. He lied right to me. Well, what I think you mit by fine is that we're running low on time and money, and you know, with deep when we started, I assume that you have some kind of a plan to get him out. Actually, she sounds like her She needs a southern accent. Can you do a southern She's from the South. What the hell is going on with you, guys? Now? That's not quite on. See, the accident is crucial, it's ridiculous. Car What is it doing? Okay, okay, just I'm sorry, all right, I'm just gonna level with you. Due to certain personnel losses that we have sustained, we're just various readjustments had to be made. You're gonna have to play a small role in this thing. Okay, So can you put these on? I'd like you to put this hat on. You're gonna put on that, and you're gonna stuff it with that, and we'll turn around, give you a little moment small role. Who am I supposed to be? Well? I like all those movies. Yeah, Ocean is the least good but simultaneously very good. Yeah. I agree with both sentiments. Um is there any other stuff you want to talk about? Is there any other I gave this movie a three and a half originally, but that's just my letterbox review, and so it's not giving away um our our current review because we're different men now, but I'm not sure. I think maybe that was a little a little harsh I I have given I. I can't think of anything I don't like about this movie. Yeah, I think that it's exactly the movie that it sets out to be. Um, I don't I don't know what it could be, what it could do to be better at what it's attempting. Yeah, Um, do we want to just go into the rating cutlet? Oh? No, probably, Trent. It's kind of kind of hot in here. There's like a flash outside the window, and I'm getting a call from front of the show drawing sick foost. But I'm gonna have to tell her to call me back later because there's a bomb outside my my screep.

So your robot this whole time, and that's why you died in sort of like that slow Trent. I would definitely recommend this movie. I think that it is rewatchable, and I'm going to give it an eight out of ten. I think I gave it a four out of five, so I think that that translates. I was just gonna say that it's should be creeping into four star territory because I didn't walk away. I mean, you have to answer the other questions. But um, but yes and yes and yes and yes. What about your mom? Oh, my mom, I think she'd enjoy this. My mom doesn't really care for horror movies, but I think that she doesn't like gory movies. And I think that this, I mean, it has some blood and stuff, but I think that my mom would like the sort of setting and um, the stuff that it's making fun of. I'm genuinely kind of curious as to what my mom would think about this, And maybe as a social experiment, I want two more things that are connected to bring up about the movie. One, Rachel Senat is really really good in this UM like easily for me, like the funniest thing in the movie. Um, She's so funny, and several people have said that we need to use her podcast monologue and our intro outro. I was, I was, that's the second thing I was going to bring up. UM while watching that scene when that scene happened in the movie, I watched it with friends of Sho Sophia Alexis, and we both turned to each other and we smiled, and I was like, this is how I feel and this and this is how I win. Yes, And I think my letterbox review of the movie was do you mind if I pull it up? No? No? Please? So my review is there's a point where a character talks about how difficult it is to run a podcast, and while it's making fun of said person, I felt so validated. And this received eight legs, not far off from your nine. M So this is this is how I win? It seems so. But anyways, those are my two points. Back to your ratings, Gauntlet, I had something on my mind. I'll try to remember before the end of the episode, but my ready is Gauntlet. Yes, every watched it holds up on the second viewing, even when you know the twist and it's fun for new reasons. Did you find that to be the case? Also? Yeah, I would say so. Um, you can tell parts ready to get out of the episode. Um, checking Chicken, the email, not the email, the NJ transit. Oh, I I hear you. Logistics. Oh yeah, obviously I'd recommend it. Um. Would my mom like it? Yes, I'd like her to. Oh, I remember what I was gonna say, my mom watching Bodies, Bodies Bodies is like Jackson Clark came home today and he said, I tried to listen to a Nirvana album because I like Something in the Way from the Batman so much, and hearing him talk about like the most classic rock and roll albums of all time, like a Newborn Baby, It's just like so fun for me. And he was like, I liked the first song, but then the second song was bad, so I stopped. All Right, Trent, can we get this done in like five minutes? Yeah, let's make it our goal? All right. It's almost like there's a train to catch alright, bull bullet train, bulltrain O. My movie of the year, Um, definitely my top ten, but okay, yeah, let's let's move. It's like, how would you rank the three films of speek Tacular Bodies It's X and it's noo. Yeah. It's hard because I I I really like all of them. Yeah, but I'm afraid I have to go, at least just temporarily Nope bodies X Wow. Okay, Um, mine is kind of controversial. My bottom is nope, my middle is X, and my top is Bodies. Bodies Bodies. Your bottom being nope kind of makes no sense to me because the first thing that came to my mind was like, which one did I leave the theater most stummed, and the answer is clearly Nope, and I know that's how spectacle works. But also, um, seeing this on Imax screen was like so awesome. Yeah, I mean I had a good time watching Nope. I think that Bodies Bodies Bodies I was just most I think it was the surprise of it, and b I think it's just maybe a bit of a quicker watch um to get through. But I definitely really appreciate the spectacle of Nope and Body Bodies Bodies and X are hard for me to compare because it's both like ensemble casts and I...

...have so much fun with both. But I just did the quick math and I would rather watch Bodies Bodies Bodies again the next right now, all right, three movies of Cruisi Palooza. We gotta get them out, uh, in order? Or should I just start? I'll give him in order. First, we're gonna have um, this is a big reveal everyone. This is if you're hearing this, it's too late.
