They describe it as Titanic meets the ten commandments but you're going to be the epic movie and look there's -- -- And of the tea Russell Crowe I've had such a crush on him really since he first -- Started in movies he's just so talented. He doesn't -- and maybe that's you know Oscar winners all over the place Russell Crowe. Jennifer Connelly. Who one for a beautiful mind she's in Emma Watson's in went in laughter but she's from the Harry Potter Spain. Anthony Hopkins is playing the -- And in movies directed by Pierre and are not ski whom he directed the Black Swan and requiem for a dream. So he had a really. It's cute twisted view. How to present stories in unique ways. And Nolan is. Already broken box offices around the world people want to just see it and I think they're going to be an effort -- at seeing something different not a traditional. You know people be -- production. That could be a lot of fun. Well let me tell you I've seen the previous Ford haven't gone to other movies. And end the Seymour all the animals are rushing to the -- it takes your breath away. -- Fund believes. That this the director's vision. There's another director that had the movie out this weekend but that you might also be tempted by it I'm done it suggests strongly to be tempted by it. It's -- grants Budapest hotel. By direct your web Anderson. A lot of people may have seen some of his other movies. See he's been nominated for three Oscars for com. Fantastic mr. fox. He directed the rights kingdom Rushmore at the royal atom bomb. This movie. The grand Budapest -- to go even though at least a few weeks ago it's. Making its way to Louisiana and -- and backers. Its stores. A bunch of great actors Ralph scenes Bill Murray. If Mary paper hand Harvey tried to note Jude law and yes Brody always will then Edward Norton goes on nominal. It's -- I mean. I mean that's like the put so many stars and -- -- gonna collapse under its own -- but Wes Anderson has pulled this trick off yes no maybe eight or nine or ten times already -- it's it's just solid solid gold I saw an interview with -- since and he said you know people see him in one. The man that never seen an in this kind of row could get its. It you know he played the clock here over at its European electrical -- -- that it doesn't tell you it's a little drama. But -- there's -- line that didn't hit somebody you know it's threatening him because apparently he. -- this elderly lady and I failed and I think she's like -- eighties. Leads are who leads to him. This priceless. Painting this masterpiece. And some incidents you know I will do you know just lay my hands on news dot find out that you've touched my woman says I think that all my friends. And so that means is this is a small little movie it's an adventure it's one of these quirky comedies. It's -- Anderson and until that is going it's -- like nineteen the -- percent. Positive or right committed on right committed so the people are looking at the critics love it -- could get on the -- In other directorate first time director there's this movie that actually is going to be -- note can be guilty pleasure of mine called bad words. Directed by Jason Bateman. Jason -- Starring in -- and interacting and you -- this writing it he's a forty year old man who find the loophole and innards and eighth grade. Spelling -- at. He goes to that championship but just rack -- -- I think it's like old school meeting the spelling be okay. Expertise and it's all bookstores like Powell and Cheney who to me. She can't do anything wrong a lover lover amongst the and west wing on the west wing moms. She's been master -- that she's in -- right now. She is a wonderful actress. It -- -- Art you have kids they're still great kid movies out there and the Muppets. Mr. -- in the little movie. But you know when you're celebrating uber -- people that celebrated for you had a lot to movies to choose from. Let me tell you again absolutely do and I. I'm just feeling very special but I had a conversation last night with Dennis Walter -- who has. Two adorable granddaughters. And he said they have their like two and four. Or three in five. They have memorize. The entire movie the frozen. And he says that neither one of them reads how did they memorable -- while can do complete performances of all the songs some English about chill out. And I are reminded them of the complete fool and made of myself the week we were talking about it and I said to you all frozen is that the one about the penguins and look. Keep your mouth shut -- I don't know. Talking about. But that was frozen in an initiative to phenomena one -- two Oscars. Do people who wrote the stalled. They have small children and intact in the writing it and they were going to to production. They would have their kids their daughters actually do -- duplicate. So the whole -- their focus was. Well we have children we understand children and we know we distort and come from. And a lot of storytellers forget that. It's wary audience is gonna come and that's why these directors of these movies. I think they all have different audiences they're going to and if you're one of them -- -- -- didn't the other. You know what I like about the movie you talked about today though at the grand Budapest hotel in particular is -- it's different. And it and we need that and that there's a lot of formula stuff out there and which you know I'll still go to and and be entertained. But when you do something really sort of original like that good good for the guts true. -- Indian earlier you said that you're gonna have a Dog Day Afternoon which of course threw me back to that one to pull out. Yes right not not. Quite as same as that dog you know but I'm gonna go hang out -- city park with my actual. I give a shout out to get anybody out there has not seen two it is a true classic. Dog Day Afternoon Alpa chino. And we'll talk about some other -- Angela. That's limited you know I've never asked you this but it. Gimme the top three movies you've ever look at how well it didn't take that question. No I don't love it there's somebody radio station that -- at one time and that I have to give you the same answer to each category different. For. For musicals. It's cabaret and it cut its loan the first that I ever vote -- vote was perfect and wonderful and it really is great great concedes forever. Drama came up back to the same years the couple. The -- which means -- in masterpiece. Of he really get to India the acting to production the writing. And it holds up it truly hope and for comedy. In tootsie. In the movies. Dustin Hoffman's. They're all these old old school movies but. They're they're my old favorites so. Maybe a year -- have new. But it's interesting to me to listen to what you really do like me and you can't disagree with any of those which -- such a moviegoer. Then I would think it was hard. And that those in my old stand -- for instance have already been on record for them. Just wanted to stick -- would you can add to them. Do I do all the time. I mean what my new favorite musicals that happens to be animated his pro and so it's it's making the list. You are a wonderful man we totally appreciate you every week.
