Everything Everywhere All at Once (2022)
Hello and welcome to movies on the side.
This is Stephen Robles.
And this is Nate Baranowski.
And today we are going to review the best picture of winner
from the 2023 Academy Awards.
Is that how you say it?
Nate, do you say like this year?
Did you have any to this?
I am so not.
Isn't it like this is the 95th?
It's the 83rd and 20th.
107th, it was the 95th Academy Awards.
the Academy. We'll just go with that. This movie we're reviewing today, one best
picture, the highest honor at the 95th Academy Awards. We're going to review the
2022 movie, everything I already messed up everywhere. No, you got it. No, no, I
did. I did everything everywhere all at once. That's the name of the movie.
Everything everywhere. And we're going to try and talk about it. But also I want to
talk about the Academy Awards because I need to know Nate. Did you actually
watch the Academy Awards or any parts of it? No, I have not.
to watch the Academy Awards.
Neither did I, which I take a screenshot.
That's what we should talk about.
Yeah, you watch all the clips.
I do want to, yeah, I definitely,
I go and check who won all the awards.
Right. That's correct.
That's kind of, I want to see certain moments
that kind of get buzzy on social media.
And that's how I ingest the 90th Academy, 93rd,
95th Academy Awards.
So everything everywhere all at once,
we actually won three Academy Awards.
even more, but I know like best actress, best actress in Michelle Yo, and then Jamie
Lee Curtis won Best Supporting Actress plus the movie won Best Picture.
And Kwe Kwan, didn't he win Best Supporting Act?
He won Best Supporting Actor and then the director, two Daniels.
One Best Directors, I believe.
The team of Daniels.
It won a lot.
Hold on a second.
It won seven Oscars.
I don't look right here.
One seven Oscars.
So IMDB tells me.
on a screenplay, best picture, best achievement directing.
One a ton, one a ton.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
The one it did not win, but I am so glad the person
who won it did is best actor Brendan Fraser.
He's like a Z, Fraser.
Brendan Fraser, who, you know,
if you had not followed the Brendan Fraser story,
you know, there was a lot of stuff that happened.
He was kind of blacklisted in Hollywood for a long time.
Really sad, like kind of the whole situation.
And now he has come back in this movie The Whale,
which I have not seen.
Like I just, I can't bring myself to watch it.
I don't know why, but is it out?
Is it, you can rent it.
Yeah, you can rent it on digital.
Yeah, yeah, you can watch it.
Maybe we should watch it, but Bringen Fraser,
one best actor, this is his first Oscar win.
I think first time never nominated for an Oscar
and he won best actor for that movie.
It seems very well deserved,
but also seems somewhat like a comeback story
that maybe Hollywood also kind of wanted to like
But I also feel like everyone like I don't know anyone who doesn't like Brendan Fraser. I can't say
I don't know anyone who doesn't like Brian no one doesn't like Brendan Fraser, but I feel like he won this Oscar for his whole career
I feel like yes, I'm sure he did incredible in this movie, but it's like this
Decades of pent up nostalgia of time achievement award. It's like a lifetime achievement award and honestly so happy for him like he was crying
like junket interview of Brendan Fraser for the past like three months like he was on a tonight show
He did the interview with Adam Sandler. He did like other little video clips for like variety whatever
I've seen every
I feel like I love it all you see all the Brendan Fraser things and you see randomly all like Jim Carey things and his
A lot of inspiration
I don't know why traditional
Anyway, I was so happy that he won,
and I'm so glad that he's back.
I don't know if you saw this.
Again, I see every clip of Brendan Fraser anywhere.
Man, you really fighting through.
I know you wanna say Fraser each time you do it.
And it's like you are like,
each time you say it.
Before, before recorded.
I needed to say Brendan Fraser,
Brendan Fraser, Brendan Fraser.
I needed to do that like 10 times.
Maybe just doing it right then.
He's gonna edit Fraser in over top every time.
It's gonna be a bad answer.
Yeah, a razor.
Yeah, just gonna insert it.
No, no, no, because I love it so much.
And I don't know, I just feel like it's so deserving.
Oh, he showed up to some movie premiere.
I think it was a premiere of the,
or some showing of the whale.
Brendan Fraser showed up in his like,
mummy action type outfit.
And he has said in multiple interviews,
he likes it.
He likes it.
Like give me a script for the mummy for right now,
I will do it.
The world is ready. I feel like that's gonna be that's gonna be an incredible opening. I do feel like everyone who has interviewed him
Says like hey is that coming back and each time he's like get at me. So yeah, whatever
Whatever send me this. How is that be that are like controlling that franchise? Yes, he's basically done a I'm ready
Although I do I really want to see Rachel Weiss with him again also like it needs to be two of them
of them 100% maybe she's not on board. Oh, maybe she's not. That would be sad. But anyway,
I'm just so glad he won Best Actor. I'm glad he's like back in Hollywood. Like just seeing
all these actress and actress actresses like love him for just being him. It's just so fun. So
that's what are some of your like some of your fashion wins and losses? What were they? What were
the ones that we're giving? What we're not giving? What were you really feeling as you watched people
on the red carpet? Like what was really working for you?
Well, for me, I don't, I mean, what?
Every guy is wearing a tux.
I will say Andrew Garfield.
Michael B Jordan.
Well, I felt like had a had a look that was.
Very good look.
He and the top.
He and Jonathan majors, they, they like co announce something.
And they, they were very cool together.
I mean, they look very good.
Andrew Garfield, you know, just a standard tux,
but I just love seeing him at these things
because I feel like he's so unassuming.
And there was a, there was a moment.
Jimmy Kimmel, again, I didn't watch the monologue
But I saw this clip where Jimmy Kimmel like really laid into the whole like Will Smith slap thing and he was making this joke about
How someone wants to try and slap him?
He they have to go through all these people
He's like they're gonna have to go through creed and they show Michael B Jordan on camera
They're gonna have to go through the Mandalorian. They show Pedro Pascal up in the balcony like looking at the camera
So they're gonna have to get through Spider-Man and they focus on Andrew Garfield and his face just like
He's just he's just like not me
I love Andrew Garfield and stuff.
I just love his song.
I just watched him take Boom.
Oh, was that good?
And I kind of wanted to see that.
I, it's really affecting to me.
I would say it's a bit of a slow move,
but I knew nothing about the Jonathan Larson
pre-rent days and it made me like appreciate
the whole story.
So I liked it.
I watched it with my wife.
She did not like it.
Come after her.
She's not on social media, so good luck getting out.
Should I watch with Whitney or would she,
you don't think she would enjoy it?
No, do it.
All of the, all of, so Lin-Manuel Miranda directed that movie
and all of the music from it is Jonathan Larson's
like, what do you, music diary?
Music like all of his songs that he had written
along the way, isn't it?
I mean, if you like Andrew Garfield,
you have to see it, that's just.
I feel like I love him.
more now after like no way home and seeing even all those interviews just being like glad to be here.
You know, it's kind of a little tough to be here.
I'm just glad I get to be like, make you love me even more.
I want just a comment because you asked about fashion.
I have no way to comment on any like woman's clothing because I have no idea.
I mean, you have no words.
Look at everybody looks great.
There was a, I did see this clip of it.
Is it Ariana DeBose?
who was in, or Ariana, Ariana debos.
There's a clip of her, like,
I'm so sorry.
There's a clip of her running into Morgan Freeman
backstage at the Oscars,
and she just like totally like get star struck
and like frazzled because it's Morgan Freeman.
Morgan Freeman just standing there like,
hello, you know, like he didn't really say anything.
He just says hello,
and it's kind of an awesome moment.
But did you have any thoughts about any of this fashion?
I mean, where did you find this?
My amount of Oscars,
Looking up was again knowing who won two seeing Brendan Fraser except in speech
A third raise let's say two or three. I'd say a B or C. I don't know how I'm
Finally, yes furthermore the Harrison Ford hug
Yes, yes, how I what's his name? It is with K way quan
Yes, they were in who temple of doom together, right? They were and so
That just like their excitement of like yes, it was just
Joy glee. I didn't watch anything else. That's it. That's it. That's it.
That was it. That was it. All right. So let's talk about I saw I mean, I saw some red carpet looks. I'm not commenting on them
I think everyone looked great. All right. So let's talk about this movie. Everything everywhere all had once came out last year one best picture
Ron tomatoes and they do have any guess what critics gave this movie. I'm gonna say critics gave it it's high
93% very close 95% critics gave it 95% audience a little lower
80 audience gave them so close 88% I'll give that to you. I give it to you. I can't even begin to summarize this movie
Yes, yeah, that's right. You really you really I know I have to say this right up top. Yeah
Yeah, when you asked if I have seen this movie and I have you last night
I just feel like 12 hours ago and I saw it a long time ago
relatively right right back probably back in 2022 whenever right when after it came out for
Rental I wanted to see it. I immediately had this sinking weight on top of my shoulders because immediately
I thought Steve is not gonna like this movie. He's
Stevens this is this movie's too weird for Stephen and then that made me sad because it's like am I gonna be the one
defending this because Stephen's gonna be like,
I don't know.
They're hot dog fingers, I don't get it.
They're like, did okay.
This movie, everyone was talking about it.
So you do know, Straw Hat Goofy is on TikTok.
He's like a movie review.
You mentioned him before.
I have no reference.
Big movie review guy, he was raven about it.
This has high expectations and I know you hate coming
into things that have high expectations
because you're a contrarian.
That is correct.
I think, or should I say you're not correct
Anyway, everybody was raving that it was this incredible, incredible movie.
You read the synopsis on IMDB.
Let me just read the one sentence synopsis.
It says, a middle-aged Chinese immigrant is swept up into an insane adventure in which
she alone can save existence by exploring other universes and connecting with the lives
she could have led.
That's the summary of this movie, which sounds bonkers.
I think they didn't even put the bagel into that one.
There's also a bagel.
And I think there's an everything bagel joke in the movie
if I'm not mistaken.
But anyway, that synopsis plus like seeing the trailer,
knowing it's rated R, not knowing,
like that's gonna be weird.
I was, like I had not seen it.
I was resistant because I was like,
I don't think I'm gonna like this.
I don't, I can't do it.
And so for a long time, I didn't do it.
There was an evening where
kind of by myself, I was like, I don't want to watch 2012 for the thousands of time.
I don't, I don't want to watch Black Adam. It's so bad. So what do you know, I can't see it again.
I like the kids. Yeah, exactly. I do. I know because when I don't know what to watch, I like default
to like a Marvel movie, a disaster movie or some action movie. And you see, you've seen all the
Star Wars stuff recently. Yeah, just you know, there's nothing else. And so, you know,
right now, but I don't like the zombies. I don't want to be scared.
Did you watch an episode of the last of us? You strike me. If I, and I know you,
in my heart, I feel like Steven Robles one night at about 11 30 p.m.
After everyone else has gone to bed, thought, man, this feels like a zeitgeisty sort of thing.
It's everywhere. I wonder if I can watch this.
And I feel like you would probably get about 15 minutes in and then go,
Nope, I can't.
That's my guess of what you did.
Did you watch 15 minutes of last of us?
Nate, that is an incredible assessment
of who I am as a person.
I did exactly that.
I did exactly that.
I watched like 15 minutes,
but I will say I have an addendum
because it was just as you said.
It was like a lunch.
Did you watch a little bit of the video game playthrough as well?
No, no, I didn't really that.
That's me actually.
Another day, I forget what it was,
but I was in a situation where I was just sitting
in my car.
So now it's daytime.
Now it's daytime and the sun is out.
I have my little phone.
I said, let me try and watch a little bit more.
Zombies can't hurt me through this little screen.
That's exactly right.
And it's daytime.
So no zombies, you know, can't do that.
And so I finished that episode and those zombies,
you know, they look weird.
And Pedro Pascal, listen,
not around Brendan Fraser only, but also Pedro Pascal.
I feel like every, every lady,
the hot ones, the hot wings thing.
I see the hot ones.
I watch the whole thing.
I didn't even eat.
Like I watched, I watched him explaining
to either variety or whoever,
like as he goes through his like cinematography,
like through his whole catalog,
his whole filmography is the word I was looking for.
I watched that whole thing
I'm not even a huge Pedro Pascal.
Guy, I've never seen Game of Thrones
and I've never seen the Mandalorian.
And this guy, I saw him in that one Kingsman movie.
That's my relationship to Pedro.
I don't, yeah.
So he's just so big right now.
And listen, I like him.
I really like him.
Like I like him on and off the hammers.
I like the hot wings.
I like, they were like Sarah Michelle Geller,
posted a picture of them.
I guess they were in like an old Buffy episode or something.
We should just do like a ill-informed gossip celebrity gossip.
That's what it's become.
But they so I love everything about it.
And so I think it's this movie.
We're definitely going to get to this movie.
I'm so sorry.
This is like old school mods.
This is what people are here for.
People are here for this.
So I finished that episode in broad daylight.
I was watching my back for zombies.
And listen, Pedro Pascal, I love seeing him.
He's great in the show.
But it's zombies.
I can't watch it.
I can't, I'm not doing it.
So you can do it.
You finished the one episode and said,
I'm not coming back for two.
I'm sure there was a hook at the end of that first episode.
I mean, I was.
No, it's every time I open HBO, it's like, last of us.
I said, no, thank you.
I said, I'll just pass right on by that.
No, I'm totally good.
I want you black out of them again.
No, I can't bring myself to do it.
I even tried, Nate, I even did the thing
where I just went to the action scenes to watch it.
And it's still, it was just so bad.
Like, it's just so bad.
I'm sorry, I'm sorry doing the rock Johnson if you're listening. I love you. He had a killer suit
You want to talk about fashion. Did you see his suit jacket?
That's suit jacket next level and they can't even believe you doing this. Okay
There's some inside jokes here listeners and if you need to get you need to listen to the bonus episodes to get them
directly in Apple podcast or patreon.com slash movies on the side anyway
Good plot everything. Thank you everything everywhere all at once. I registered it for a long time
I said I'm alone by myself
these a hot dog fingers.
Let's see the hot dog fingers.
And you know what took me over the edge?
The Google EIs, someone tweeted or whatever
that like I can't believe everything everywhere
all that once made me cry over two rocks.
And I was like, I don't even know that means,
but I have to know now.
I need to know what is that even about.
And I'm gonna tell you right now Nate,
I really didn't like this movie.
Like as you correctly predicted,
like I did not care for the plot devices,
The action is super weird.
Jamie Lee Curtis is both incredible and insufferable in this movie like...
Like, I really did not like much of anything in this movie.
I didn't like the donut or the bagel, whatever that thing was.
But, I cried multiple times.
And the storytelling it does in the midst or in spite of this ridiculous multi-dimensional plot
is really compelling.
And it's touching to see these different relationships,
to see the catharsis happening,
to see realizations happening.
And it's like super deep.
And so I don't even know what to think about this movie,
because I really did not like it,
but I also like cried multiple times.
So I don't even know what to do with that.
I guess it means it's good, maybe.
I mean, I think it's, here's the thing.
I think it's good.
I think it's good.
It is very weird.
Weird in a way, we went and saw Ant-Man and the Wasp
Quantumania, which is weird in a big franchisey sort of way.
And it was weird in a, so we got to create an accepted
weird that we have to create merchandise from this.
It's still in the guardrails of mainstream.
This is like a, we got to make sure we're still
entertaining for the whole family.
is so shockingly strange at times.
That I love that it doesn't feel like,
well we don't care if you're like,
we don't care.
This is not a franchise, we're not starting a new IP.
This is just like killer actors
going to put a real touching, impactful story
wrapped in an everything bagel of absurdity.
I was really good.
That was very good.
And yet, you won't care about the absurdity at the end because the real life emotions
watch as we touch your emotions while we're also seeing two people with hot dog fingers
Nate, there was literally a fight scene that was incumbent upon two guys putting trophy
somewhere that I can't even mention on this podcast.
Yes, and that was the that was the plot device. Yes, and I just yeah, it is incredibly
has all of these things
but the themes behind it let me let's talk about the themes for a bit. Things behind it.
Because there are several one generational family trauma passing through
different generations and how
marrying this guy that they don't want him to marry.
They didn't want, they kind of rejected her.
She then became sort of bitter at him,
and then eventually had her own daughter,
and like that sort of passed along.
She became the thing that, you know, see you.
So like, there's that whole story,
and the whole like, as she finally realizes,
like, oh, this is, this is what,
like, I'm part of the problem.
Like, the world hasn't happened unfairly to me,
and I'm just like, been hurt by everyone.
I am doing hurting.
my daughter and I'm hurting other people. And that is like super relatable.
Along the way. So that's like one theme. So like put that in a box. There's the whole
like finding like nihilism full on straight like which is what her daughter
matters. Nothing matters. There's no meaning. If you looked, if you zoomed out far enough,
we're all specks enough. Everything's meaningless under the sun. And we're all just going to
And like being able like that deep versus Waymond and versus like a man who has finds joy
in these simple little googly eyes and like lives in the moment and like, yes, there's
pain, but he is like seeing the beauty all around him.
Can I tell you this?
I need to I need to tell you about the googly eyes because you know, one of the like images
that you keep seeing in all the like the trailer thumbnails is like the one big googly
Michele goes like forehead and like you see him early in the movie and I told myself going into this movie
I don't want to be whatever those googly eyes are about I don't want any of it. I don't want none of it
I don't know if the googly eyes are supposed to be weird or creepy. I don't know what it is or if it's whatever it is
I don't want it like the you basically I do not like greek a green eggs and ham
I do not want the balloons and other balloons.
Yeah, I don't want Googleey eyes.
But in this movie, Nate, that Googleey eye
gets slapped to her forehead.
And I was almost visually angry
at how much that emotionally affected me.
Oh, it's like so mad because it was so good
in that little moment.
And I was like, shoot, they did it.
But in like the imagery there of like that's like the traditional like enlightenment
Taoism like that sort of that tie in, but then you combine it with the like fun loving
not seriousness of a waman and all of a sudden she like sees the goofy beauty in front of her
and like that's her in like.
I can tell you like.
K K. Wequan who plays waman, who is Michelle Yo's husband in this movie.
we see that he's like has divorced papers and is planning to leave her and it's like
usually that is such a on-the-nose plot device and early in the movie it felt like such a
like okay duh like this is an easy way to create conflict just by looking at a piece of paper
but one of the plot devise of the movie is you see these different like it's a multiverse so
you see these different possible outcomes like like just multiverse like it's the multiverse
She wasn't with Waymond and she was a singer or whatever and then but Waymond was also very successful by himself too
And he's wearing his tux and like she gets to see
Like the innate goodness in some people like Waymond
It might play out as a solo super successful entrepreneur who is also kind and loving
But it might turn them into a husband who is also kind and loving
success for something else and so they run a laundromat.
But for her to come to understand that the same caring nature is in both versions of
Like that is the realization of when the eyeball hits her forehead.
And it is really compellingly portrayed.
And like that moment, there is that catharsis.
And that divorce that seems like an easy conflict at the beginning, it gets way tear as the
movie progresses because you see like this is who he is as a person.
Like he's the good one.
He's the good one in this relationship and it's like,
right, yeah, even I still didn't like the hot dog fingers,
but it's, you know, they do the other stuff well.
Can we talk about Jamie Lee Curtis real quick?
Or did I gotta stay in Waman for just a second?
Yeah, please, okay.
Yeah, he's so much like the man that I want to be in so many ways.
Like that is like, he's so good.
That is so good.
I do think there is something about his face that,
you know, remember how we talked about like,
certain actors have a very punchable face.
the guy in Top of Maverick,
the guy in Top of Maverick.
He has maybe the most hugable
one to like hold him close face of like,
man, I just wanna give you,
like I wanna give you,
make you smile and hug you.
And I'm trying to think right now of what other actor
I could think of that I would feel the same level of like,
come on it, get in here.
Get in here, you rascal.
I'll be like, here's the point.
That's good, right?
Oh, that was such, that was so good.
That is true.
And like, do you know what the glam body is
at the Oscars and these award shows?
The glam body is this like hyper-slomo camera
that I forget his name, but this guy with like long curly hair.
He basically instructs every actor like,
stand on this spot, the camera's gonna come real fast
and just try to look right in the camera
and do something cool.
And then there's this hyper-slomo little video clips
of all these actors
cool things like, or whatever.
And K-Way Kwan did it at the Oscars yesterday,
or on Sunday, and he was the only one that like,
he literally jumped into frame.
Like, he jumped perfectly into frame
as the glam bar came in, it's a super slow mo,
and he's like smiling as he's slowly falling
for the jump, I was like, this guy, even in real life,
this guy like you're saying, like he's just super huggable.
So yeah, I totally agree.
He's a good dude.
All right, let's go to Jamie Lee Curtis.
I did not know she was in this movie and so when she appears behind that desk at the tax office
I was like is that?
She occurred like and then for her to keep returning throughout the movie as a villain character
It was shocking like it was also shocking how much she committed to being that role
Which is just oh bizarre
Ridiculous role, but she was 100% in it like she
the piece of paper to her forehead kind of in it because of her.
Well, so there's that, but also her like grounded character because everyone has
their like this universe boring grounded before they get a postress.
Like that person is so, man, I'm trying to think of a different word other than
cringey, but so like, yeah, just like a grading character.
It's like, oh, right, right.
I don't have to deal with someone like you.
She did a great job of portraying that person who has at every DMV or social security
office that is just like a pain to work with.
So she portrayed a great, but she totally sold it and then there's the scene again at
the end like this is one of the times when we talk about movies that didn't deserve one
of the payoff moments at the end and this super strange movie like does deserve those
and when Jamie Lee Curtis and Michelle Yo
are sitting on that bench outside the laundromat,
it's like shoot.
Yes, I'll take it.
Like that is another emotional cathartic moment.
And it earned it.
Like the movie earned it.
I don't know what else is going on.
Well, in the case, so we've now talking about
the relationship with Weman and Evelyn.
Now we got Deirdre and Evelyn.
Now let's go to Joy.
The, the, the, the villain.
There is a part near the beginning of this where after she basically sends her daughter away
and is like, listen, you know, basically don't tell your grandpa your gay, hide this from
him and also does something very, very insensitive there.
And then, Joy leaves the laundry man and Evelyn follows her out and says something like,
also, you need to eat less or something.
Yeah, and it's like, what have you done?
Like, yeah, just like, what have you done?
Like the kind of things that like make you feel like,
wow, this relationship shot.
Like this can't come back.
But what's amazing is then this juxtaposition at the end
of the movie where she says the exact same hurtful things,
but then follows it up with the most genuine, authentic,
I love you and care about you.
And if you choose to do X, Y, or Z,
I'm your mom and I still love you even if your grandfather just owns you like whatever happens like it is such
Such an amazing juxtaposition of those two scenes and their dynamic like
Every scene that they have together is amazing and her is the villain
Stephanie she has the villain there is a TikTok of like best villain entrances of all time and
There is a scene in this movie where like she like ticks her head or whatever and they change dimensions
with every tick and it's like oh
That was amazing.
Like, please do that again.
Like it was, there was the coolest thing.
And so, she's just frightening.
A frightening villain.
Like, yes, she was frightening to me.
And it was so cool because it was reserved like power
for such, you know, for many of the scenes,
but she was able to exude like this,
I am dangerous vibe.
And like totally, yeah, like it was amazing.
So it's a,
It's like nihilistic evil.
Like because none of this matters,
we don't do what I want.
And nothing to lose.
Nothing to lose.
Who cares about the life and death of people in this?
Cause there's no value to any of it.
And like that,
which when you like,
if you and I watch this movie in person together,
I feel like discussing purpose and value and everything
would be one of those like, we would just stay up
for a long time talking about this giant.
It's a huge theme in this movie.
is this whole like, if you're everywhere
and if you see everything, then what, you know,
if you see how it all ends, if you see everything,
like what does a little moment, what does a little life mean?
And like those are huge questions at this movie
just in some ways, like addresses,
but you're more focused on the relationships
between the people, so it might not hit you
until like the second day after, it's like, oh yeah.
What's the point of living five extra years
years or whatever.
You don't have all that.
And I love how, you know, in the multiverse plot device, Michelle Yo gets to see herself
not only as like the laundromat wife, but as this successful opera singer.
And what I feel like this movie does well is it shows you like, yeah, there are worlds
out there where you're the millionaire or you're the successful whatever.
and now sees his character for what it is.
In that universe, Michelle Yo, who wasn't married to
Wayman because she was a successful opera singer,
then she didn't stay with him.
The one thing she wants in that universe, then is Wayman.
And if there was, and you would,
the movie does a good job of implying or showing
and not telling you, it almost looks like if she could trade
whatever fame and success she had in that universe
for the relationship with Wayman, she would do it then.
And then to take that appreciation
for that person from that universe and apply it to the universe where you did
marry him only you ended up in a laundromat and then being able to appreciate and
love the person as though you were you know from that world but here I don't know
I think it just does it does a great job with that yeah it's it's good so overall
let's rate this movie and here's what I want to say before we rate this movie yeah
this movie is not for everyone I would have said before we did this it's not for
I didn't ask.
No, I didn't ask.
But, and it's violent crew at times, like, in a way that like, again, not for everyone.
But the themes of it are so touching and the originality of it, it is like no other movie
you've ever seen.
It is like no other movie that's coming out of Hollywood right now.
beautifully startling about look at this original movie amongst the sea. They needed
that on the movie poster for the advertisements beautifully startling. That should have been
the tagline. I really yes. Yes. Go on. I was affected by this movie and enjoyed parts
of this movie. Yeah. And I kind of want to see this movie. I saw this movie again, maybe
a year ago or so.
I kind of want to see the movie again,
maybe in another four year.
Like, there's some rewatch ability to it for me,
which like maybe it's like more big curiosity
of like I don't quite remember all this stuff,
but I think I'm gonna go back and watch this movie again.
So that, whatever that means.
So on a scale of zero to five,
Google EIs, of course.
I will say, I'll rate it.
I'm gonna give this movie
four out of five.
Because I have to recognize,
you know, what is a movie supposed to do
if not feel things and think about things
and package deep things?
Yeah, in a way that it's like the medicine
with like a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.
Like it is this.
It's a hallucinogen and not shit.
It's like, it is a startlingly troublesome hallucinogen.
at the core like powerful in many moments that are really deep.
And like when they're on the staircase and that bagel is sucking everything up
and Micheleo's dad character like holds on to her to help her keep going after he tried to fight against her like
it's steep, you know, it's a powerful moment.
So I'll give it four out of five.
It's cool, googly eyes.
I'm gonna give the movie four out of five too.
It is a movie that at some point in time two characters are deciding whether they want to
move towards complete annihilation from existence.
And it goes from that huge scale
to a couple trying to work things out in a laundry.
And all the things in between.
And so it is original.
In some ways, I think the win, the best picture nod,
almost comes as to me, it feels like a positive reaction
we've had in the last year or so.
Like almost as a like, hey, maybe take some risks.
There are some risky directors and risky screenplay.
Like, there's still some stuff out there.
And if this is an example of what taking a risk is
and succeeding, I'm good with that.
I'm good with more.
They might not all hit.
They might not all be good.
We may do something on this show that go like,
I didn't work for me.
and maybe there are parts of it that didn't work for me,
but on the donut hole it did.
Okay, last question.
Do you recommend people go watch this movie now
if they have not seen it?
Okay, yes, great question.
Not a blanket recommendation.
If you want to know whether you should go see it,
you should, I mean, you probably don't know us personally,
but if you'd know us personally,
DM us and we will tell you as a
conservative to you. If you don't know
as personally, you need to go to your
30 year old friend or cousin who is
kind of artsy, who has definitely
already seen it and ask them, am I
the kind of person who would like
this movie? That's a good. So you
need to go find your North Star and
then they will guide you in this
recommendation. Find your base. So
Find your bagel. It's not everything for everyone, but for a few. I definitely know some people who I wouldn't recommend it for.
So for example, mom don't look so bad.
Not even not because it's like like vulgar to the point of like you'll just can't stand it. It's just gonna be so weird like I
Mean watch gone with the wind. It is not
It is not a West Side story.
It is not a Disney movie.
It's just weird. It's super weird.
Super weird. But, but to every chalk artist out there who's listening to me,
blanket recommendation. I know all y'all.
Blanket recommendation for everyone in the art world.
Go after it. Go, go for it.
Get yourself an IPA and grab yourself and everything everywhere.
All at once.

that it means I'm naive. And maybe I am. It's strategic and necessary. This is how I fight being kind.
Stephen. Yeah. This goes after the sound at the very end, but sure, sure, sure. I do need
to ask you, you know my brother. Do you recommend this movie for my brother? Because I'm on
the fence. I feel it. I don't know. I mean, I feel like I need to know him a little bit.
I mean, we've only met in person like twice. I feel like I need to know. I need to know
what the weirdest movie he has seen already. Ooh.
and then he's like, the weirdest movie he's liked
and then maybe I could judge from there.
So Jacob, text us.
Is there, what is the weirdest movie?
Is there like a proxy movie that if you like this,
then you will like, like if you like Mulan Rouge,
then you will like.
What's, I just Googled best weirdest movies of all time.
That is what I Googled.
I don't recognize any of these movies.
I'll be honest.
Yeah, I guess.
in the recommendation.
I just, I don't even want to say the name of some of these movies because I'm scared
to even know.
You don't even know.
I don't even know.
These movie posters are insane.
Have you seen labyrinth?
I have not.
We have several listeners that want us to watch it.
I didn't actually have labyrinth in here.
I don't know which one was.
One of them has.
There's legend with the top pan.
There's Peter Pan.
There's I am, right?
I don't know if it's too silent.
I don't know if it's what it is maybe late.
As we do word jazz.
If you could watch Scott Pilgrim versus the world,
I feel like, yeah, you could watch this for sure.
Oh, for sure.
Like, yeah, Scott Pilgrim was actually probably
a pretty good, like it's heads the right direction.
Yeah, if you like Scott Pilgrim,
you will like everything everywhere all at once.
I think that's fair to say.
I think it's fair to say.
There we go, we made it there.
We made it there.
