A great movie on every level it is on it that in truth the whole area is well made. And it got a human touch and got a hold that thought he minimizes. It is also outer space. Bring. Human our perspectives there. -- and more than a great job. You know you had a chance to see yet. -- Well. Right. But the views. The movie that you who want to see more and calm. It is going to be it beat it again this week so. Port that the we have some other on movies that come out this week. I'm sorry to -- yeah I wanted to say this last week -- -- at a time somebody on Twitter said guardians of the galaxies like this generation's fifth element. Remember the Bruce Willis film -- mutual which carry all the 1997. And it's just classic science fiction film. With great acting great cinematography it's it's great for all ages. So I don't know house like -- it does that describe guardians of the galaxy as far as DC. It does and even to go back to store wore out toward -- indented holes are. Fiction and -- being an outer space this movie actually -- want to reading print store war never does it and it. Shot -- and all agent who enjoys not just for. That the younger generation. But. There it. People for the race and then that movie coming out there reboot in Dayton mutant ninja turtles. I'm not sure why. And I don't even know he -- that more is the title fight -- they're some people who really love. Keeping them in and -- But be warned about -- you'd gotten harsh reviews -- that. Just eat it it's not its record by the -- I think it's going to be. It's not completely on the lining -- for. I some say goodbye to the teenage mutant ninja -- stink if people want to get -- ninja turtles fixation go back and watch the old movies or even that. You calling it the dvd of the Saturday morning cartoon I think that be a much better easier time and money. And so -- -- -- and not know that already I've got to. -- yes the areas and. People we love our -- in south and Long Island that that's wonderful. Food history and you don't FaceBook. Has that whole new theory all these pictures that prove that everywhere they called food porn even. What is new and Libya and it's a good movie with a parent called the hundred foot journey. It's in the you probably. Aren't in Africa in -- two months now. It is today. Movie about. Lady who had -- -- on and circumstance that they and only 800 feet away opened up. And Indian restaurant to class. Cultures. And somehow or other book there your kingdom breaks down and true.

They did there that aren't yet. And there again it can be very happy and -- in the -- going to be course summon people. It may be predictable but it's going to be -- -- -- it is. -- -- -- The credit on that journey Alan Murray. Is going to be one movie for a lot of people are going to a lot of weekend going to be awhile so in Georgia. They're so pretty good to hear the bat into the store. May -- That all the tornados that are killing people mean it. -- sucked into them out of places in -- -- in the year. I understand that -- and. Couldn't it -- -- any part of that that would be truly is Qwikster but without. It. All it's all the this PG. And getting rid of people. I would look to note the number of people who. On screen are supposedly killed by these tornadoes. And -- the body count there that you need it is disaster movie or. How many people indeed killed with the media I mean that's not a that it wanted to. So thumbs down as they say in the storm but let definitely go look at that food movie. The hundred -- journey. There had been oh now wait for the media to keep your head up to because -- the one that he would called boy. It is. -- -- and a bunkers the Louisiana. -- international film festival increased screening that is the popular they couldn't do either. This movie. Is directed by Richard no matter. Called -- -- and who attacked. Toward it filming and use the same cast are all year. To tell that story. It's that wonderful movie it gotten from the top critics aren't pretend -- and what NATO's. And it is a it's a long movie -- over two hours then cut thirty minute. But is the movie that will make you reflect on your own childhood. He told the story it has all of the whole world. Marking. The boot music of hiring the people that are and at the very -- they were filming it. And so truly groundbreaking. Sometimes -- twelve days to make movies and it literally took twelve year. And you know it's. You're welcomed the proposed film or check out -- and note that limited -- I'll Google so eager audiences are there and -- it. -- you -- a difference. Yeah -- prince among men and you've really given us a good sense of what's out there the good the bad the ugly and the different and that's nice.

A movie theaters and they're using people are you on Twitter or FaceBook. -- the new movie critic it's usually not gonna do so well armed. Which are welcoming to the person talking about in the -- and they use that exact same tactic on the trailer. The CB. People with Twitter handle and FaceBook account. We're -- the media because people who actually. Are going to be critics of that so give receive that in these typically probably going to be. Be aware that his -- great ideas and yes Ryan you were great to call up. -- time.

Will there is even more fun this Saturday tomorrow night. Dirty -- night a fabulous strolled down art -- royal street and in much imports the wonderful and beyond style. And here to talk about dirty linen Knight is camp cook who was president. And CEO of the arts council who's the founder and sponsor of this wonderful night -- Marlins. -- -- How are you and afternoons in very good actor and I can't believe it's been fourteen years of dirty land. I mean now well you know some people might get -- -- -- -- and you asked if the city. It is to tell -- for those who haven't been what it's like. Think I get that actual a little less crowded we get about 101000 people not 50000 people. Had a little more eclectic you know when you get -- royals' streak you have some doubt that means you have to meet talent we have some part in -- constant. We just sort of you know little Moyer flavor with he has food trucks and we have some bars going around supported by Hendrick and so there's them sort of visual. Street and and -- those people who really lot just to pay one price -- Korea mystery that he wanted to sort of you know high ticket and stepping -- traveled son Brian Hill. He can have entertainment -- DJ rockaway and Crescent -- thirteen cents. The debate he's seen that Dan and it does in the alcohol in air conditioning Camelot -- You can -- and he went up on to me get yours you know labor on in terms of plants are in -- Gallery action and then move on into the party without over at the Lux lounge at the turn out. Now nice the walk is from what time too much time. The lock it from Dick and tell you laughing. And the you know and that's part Clark effective partnership now down by about 1010 parity. And then it's not -- electrode is -- -- patron more expensive tickets packets happened. And then that's a hundred dollars to ten and then keep coming in nine party. And this is between the 200 in the 1000 -- so it's it's a good. It's a nice -- strolling. It's really -- -- and you know I'm a person has only been in New Orleans about fifteen months but I came here regularly since then. Think maybe 94 it was my first trip. And there's something so incredible about royal street that. Just when -- blocking he's -- about concerns hanging from somebody's -- convenient. Architecture of New Orleans in these seeds look in the windows and command key and then you -- and other window and you see. The -- -- galleries seed Alex appeared to our enemy you know. And then you've got that the first people what they're cute choose that little bit for everybody on glass street which is -- very new more impacting. Very New Orleans and I agree with you I think it is a very special street in our community I think it's a very special street in America. Oh absolutely not what you gonna have a special cocktail. We do we and number of special treatment cocktails coming through from Hendricks gin and about our supply years so there. -- like -- little monster box on the street where he dropped the pumpkin and the monster is you'd deranged. And he'd rather telling all out -- -- being rich content but we really want it continue to make it sort of tested confinement. Unexpected I have to confess I don't remember what the concoctions are. But when they told me that they were going to be like having imaginative so I can -- -- -- refreshing and super. -- And how great for the arts council to to do this. We'd like to be involved in ways that we can create investment opportunities in arts and culture of New Orleans it's one of the ways we measure ourselves and from what I understand there's certain times of the year where of course they're great for the calories by. Carrying French Quarter of pestering Jack acceptable. But when it kept at the dog days of summer and they say you know things can sort of taper off that the great tie for the people who live in new ones to support them. Small business owners and the micro businesses of our communities that. How to make New Orleans great. And I'll tell you having done this before. It's also an opportunity to see some of those red dresses are still walking around us. Red threat -- is definitely and by. As.
