Episode Transcript

Speaker 0 00:00:00 Hello everybody and welcome back. It is once again me your friendly deputy of movie Deputy podcast, bringing to you the latest and greatest in what's coming up this week in upcoming movies. As this is our upcoming movies podcast, and I'm gonna be bringing you a total of 23 movies Today we're gonna be talking about three movies that came out on the eighth, two movies that came out on the 10th, and the rest of them are coming out on the 11th. So we are going to just have a full day today of these movies though I promise I'm not gonna take up your whole day with this program. Sorry about that. I forgot to put my phone on silent. I gotta get better about that <laugh>. And honestly, this week there is, there's a unusual variety of movies and it's just kind of weird. Please forgive my audio. Speaker 0 00:00:48 I know I might sound a little bit different than I typically do. I updated some stuff on my computer and I'm not sure what's going on with my voice software, but I definitely wanna get this corrected as soon as possible so that we can get this figured out. Like I said, I'm not sure exactly what's going on. If you are having any problems at all hearing me, I do apologize, but I'm going to be fixing that before I am back to you next week. Our upcoming movies, the ones that open on August 8th, we're gonna start with one called The Thing Behind the Door. This one is entirely in French with subtitles. The woman loses her husband in World War ii, so she turns to dark magic. It's basically like Pet Cemetery meets the Walking Dead. That's probably about the best way I could kind of describe it. Speaker 0 00:01:31 You have to wonder why or what were they even thinking On this one, it is coming out on video, on demand and digital. So this one is not gonna be available in the theaters, but if it's one that catches your attention, that might be a way to find that one. Our next one on the eighth is called Summoning the Spirit. This is a couple that is looking to kind of get away from the city and they're kind of going out into the wilderness and they end up kind of going to this retreat, which they don't realize is actually a cult that follows Bigfoot <laugh>. Now, I know that sounds really silly in the whole thing, but this is not your typical Bigfoot movie and this movie Bigfoot is a flesh eating monster and there is a prophecy about sacrificing somebody to him and all of this stuff in this cult. Speaker 0 00:02:12 And so this couple's gonna get a lot more than what they bargain for. And you can just imagine the direction that this one's gonna go. Summiting the spirit is also gonna be coming out on video and demand and digital, so it will not be in the theaters. Our last movie on the eighth is called Wolf Hollow. This one is a town that is very secretive. It likes to guard its secrets. It's kind of a close knit little community. The reason that they're so close knit is because there's werewolves. Now this is, this is not a spoiler or anything, this is in the trailer on this one. And they have basically two rules in this town is basically don't cause any problems or if you go, if you do end up causing any problems, get out before dark before it gets dark. Because if you've caused some problems in this town and you're not outta there in time, there's not gonna be anything left. So it looks extremely bloody, extremely Speaker 1 00:02:59 Gory, just tacky. And just as like, what in the world were these people thinking? I don't think we're ever gonna understand the answers to those questions on that one <laugh>, but we're jumping straight to the, uh, I can't talk, we're jumping straight to the 10th with a movie called Traitor. Now this one may not necessarily be what you might expect from a, a movie named Traitor. It's kind of a bit of a recluse sociopath female. She has kind of imprisoned herself in solitary confinement, and what she does is she's really good at day trading, but she's gotten also really good at scamming people. And so she's in determined to kind of take over this whole financial world just in this whole thing. And, and one scene, the trailer even shows her snorting wasabi. I made myself a note of that 'cause I was just like, Ugh, <laugh>. Speaker 1 00:03:47 I just cannot even imagine that. That's just, that just gives me the shivers even just thinking about that. But yeah, this is Gal is, yeah, she's a little bit off a rocker. A little, maybe a little bit more than a little bit. Yeah, it's, it's, it's not gonna, I don't imagine it's gonna have wide audience. It is being released limited in theaters, so maybe it'll be near you if that's something you're interested in. And if not, it's a kind of a weird, it's a psychological thriller of sorts, even though it doesn't really say that it does, that it's, so, it's described as a thriller, but I'm adding the word psychological to it. Uh, the other movie that we're coming that's gonna be coming out on the 10th is Love in Taipei. This one is a comedy done by Paramount. So this is gonna be also Thea Thea, uh, theatrical release. Speaker 1 00:04:28 And this one, the, a bunch of parents decide to surprise their daughter with, it's her graduation president. I couldn't tell if it was college or high school from the trailer, but they surprise her with the trip to Taipei because they want her to be immersed in their culture. And while she's there, it's like she's completely lost. She is, she doesn't know anybody there. She doesn't know the language, she doesn't know the culture, but what, what she does end up finding there is love. And so it stereotypical or just typical love story, there's a lot of, there are some subtitles and stuff in this. So, uh, it's, if you looked crazy Rich Asians, you're probably gonna really like this one, but if not, it's one you could probably easily skip. It looks, it's just the same love story told over and over again just by different actors and different, different dates that they were released. Speaker 1 00:05:16 So yeah, that's gonna be interesting to see where that goes. Well, we are finally up to the 11th and let me see how many we are doing here on the 11th. We've got 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 movies on the 11th. Wow. Now, and now you did not just turn into an episode of Sesame Street where we're going cut, let's count with the count. No, and I know that's a really bad impression. So <laugh>, you've been around me very long. You know, I am at least good for a laugh if nothing else. And I'm just looking at the clock here. It's like we're about a third done with our movies and we're only six and a half minutes in. So yeah, I'm definitely not gonna keep you as long this week 'cause I kept you last week. Literally least that's what I'm hoping. But it still stick around. It's like, 'cause these next ones are gonna get kind of interesting. Speaker 1 00:06:03 On the 11th, the biggest movie that's coming out this week is called The Last Voyage of the Demeanor. Now, I, for one, had never read the stories of Dracula. I guess when the whole story was first written, Dracula basically came across the sea and it was the last voyage of the demeanor. The Demeter was the name of the ship. And this is basically that story. It's kind of dark foreboding, it's about Dracula, it's about the crew not knowing about the sec, the secrecy of the cargo and kind of what happens to everybody on board. It's gonna be dark, it's gonna be a thriller. It's probably freak some people out, it looks like to ha like it's gonna have some jump scares to it. I, for one, I'm actually looking forward to it. So I'm pretty sure this is gonna be one of the reviews I'm gonna be bringing you this weekend. Speaker 1 00:06:47 So I'm really excited about that. Now the next big one, oh, I should, I of course it's coming out in theaters. I didn't touch on that. Yes, that is definitely coming out in theaters. The next big movie, and it's a sci-fi one, it's also coming out in theaters, is called the Pod Generation. Now this is just as unusual as it might sound with the pod generation. Women are pretty much tired of giving up their bodies. Yes, the whole feminist stuff again, but I'd, it didn't seem like it's going super woke in the trailer, but I'm kind of afraid it might go somewhat woke. I i if it's, if if it comes near me, I'll watch it, but if not, it's not gonna be what I'm gonna search out. Basically in this one, babies grow in pods. They, you grow the baby basically outside your body, you're able to continue, keep going on with your life. Speaker 1 00:07:29 And these, the kids just grow in pods and then they're out in the world. So it's just, I don't know, it's sci-fi, it's a little weird. It's just, it looks to be like a co they're trying to make it a comedy, but I can't quite figure that out. I didn't really see anything in the trailer that would really kind of resonate, like the whole sci-fi comedy. It looked more of a deeper drama along those lines. Now, believe it or not, we are gonna be talking about some better ones. So I'm kind of looking forward to that. Actually, that's the next one I'm gonna be talking to you about. There is a, a movie coming out by an independent studio and it's gonna be have limited release, but this is one that I'm going to search out because I really wanna watch it. You people wondering, okay, well tell us about it. Speaker 1 00:08:07 Well, that's what I'm getting to <laugh>. But this one is called Jewels. It is basically small town life and this older couple goes in and they go to these town meetings and they voice their opinions on things that they don't like and things that they're upset about. Just kind of a cranky old couple who just, they wanna be heard. Well, one day a U F O literally lands in their backyard and this alien comes out and <laugh>. So he is there, it's like he's doing all of his normal complaining. He goes, oh yeah, and a U f O crashed in my backyard. And everybody thinks he's joking because it's just how this couple is. Well, he gets home and then his wife finds out and they find the alien in their living room, who's, he's kind of invited in and it's, I don't know, it, it doesn't feel like an et 'cause it's kind of like a humanoid type alien. Speaker 1 00:08:52 But this one, this one looks honestly wholesome and sweet. I'm really hoping that it is as cute as it looks. Again, this one is called Jewels and, and it unfortunately is coming out limited release. But like I said, this is what I'm gonna pretty much look around and see if I can find it. 'cause this one looks like one I don't wanna miss. Now, if you're a gamer, if you're a friend who's a gamer, if you've never known anybody who's a gamer, our son happens to be a gamer, which is why I kind of mentioned some of that. But there is a movie coming out called Grand Chomo. Basically it's a video game come to life, but it's not just that. This is actually based on a true story of a bunch of underdogs who just had never really done a whole lot with their life other than gaming. Speaker 1 00:09:32 And they had the chance to finally get behind the wheel and they totally blew people away. I mean, on the racetrack, not like in the Violet set, but this one, it's unfortunately, it's also a limited release, which I don't understand. It's a big thing by Sony Pictures, but they're only doing a limited release on this one with Mean Grand Risma was a huge game, and so it's like they really, they, they really missed an opportunity on this one. So if you're a fan of racing, you're, if you're a fan of video games, this is gonna be one that you won't wanna miss. Our next one is called Love Life. This one is an a, it's another Asian movie. It's all done in subtitles, so it's a little hard to follow on the subtitles, it the A, the translations could have been accurate, but I was having a little bit of a hard time file following the trailers that I was watching. Speaker 1 00:10:15 But in this one, it's an Asian family dynamic. The, it was a family a that the Hus, something happened to the husband and he returned after a long time. And then of course his wife wanted to help him once he had returned, but it just looked very complicated. It looks like maybe she had moved on with her life and after he came back, things just kind of got really confusing really fast. So it's, it's just, eh, <laugh>, forgive my reference on that, but it looks to be just eh. Now our next one is gonna be a big fan with the pretty much war history crowd called Three Days in Malay. And I might've mispronounced that. It's M A L A Y, I'm not sure exactly where that is. I think it's over around Japan somewhere. But it's basically based on a true story of the Marines versus the Japanese in a three day fight that this particular battle didn't make like big headlines or big things with war stories. Speaker 1 00:11:06 It's not like the the beaches of Normandy or anything like that, but it is still a crucial part of World War ii if you are a fan of that. If you're a fan of history and a military buff or a war buff or any of this type of stuff that you want to know about these things that aren't necessarily mainstream knowledge, this might be one that you wanna check out. Is it completely historically accurate? Likely not. It's, I mean, it's Hollywood, but at the same time, it's a story that very few know about and I think it might be an important one to tell. Now our next one is called Inside Man. And yes, we are still talking about movies coming out on the 11th, all the rest of these coming out on the 11th. This one is called Inside Man. It is based on a true story of a cop that goes undercover in a crime. Speaker 1 00:11:48 Family gets too deep and things get really complicated, both, both personally and professionally for him in his personal life as well as work and everything. It gets really dark. It had a little bit of the feeling of The Godfather. Again, it's called Aporia and it's just, if you're a fan of The Godfather in movies like that, it might be one you wanna check out. If not, I don't think you're gonna be missing much. And this next one, when I saw the previous for this, I immediately thought back to like a movie that came out in 2014, A Million Ways To Die in the West. It was a movie by Seth McFarland and this one is called Go West. It is super woke, it's a comedy, it's just over the top. It's basically making fun of the Oregon Trail journey. And it's a really a tragic comedy. Speaker 1 00:12:33 It's entirely cast by the, by the cast of Studio C. It's not a program I'm familiar with, but if you're at all familiar with Studio C, you might want to check this out if you're into that type of comedy. If not, you're this, like I said, this one goes so far off the woke end, it's just <laugh>. This would be an easy one for me to miss. It looks like one I'd probably catch if it might be on TV or something, but it's definitely not one I'm gonna go out of my way to watch. Now, this next one, it's like, I don't know about you, but I like cooking network type programs. I'm not a huge fan into the reality TV thing, but there are some of the programs that do get my attention. And honestly, if this one was a reality TV show, I would probably watch it. Speaker 1 00:13:13 The movie is called Medusa Deluxe. Now if that sounds as weird to you as it did to me, then that made, that will make a lot of sense. This one is actually kind of a mystery. It's another independent film, but Medusa Deluxe is basically ever a bunch of hairstylists competing in this competition of literally killer be killed. So if you could take Project Runway except with Hair and com, combine it with Hunger Games, maybe something along those lines, that's about what you're gonna get with this. It is from a 24 studio. They typically insert a lot of let's just random woke stuff and things like that into their movies. So I like to warn people at least on that ahead of time of a little bit maybe what to expect. But again, it is called Medusa Deluxe, the title itself is interesting, even if nothing else is on that one. Speaker 1 00:14:00 But like I said, it looks like it's gonna be an unusual adventure and it's either gonna go over the top or it's just gonna fall flat. So it'll be interesting to see where that one goes. The next one's actually pretty interesting. It's called King on Screen. And again, that was King as in Stephen King on screen. And this is the story of Stephen King stories and how they came to be told and all the people involved. It's like how did they go from the ideas in his head to paper and how did they go from paper to screenwriting, screenwriting to the films and the that whole process and who all was involved in that. So if you're a fan of Stephen King, that's definitely gonna be one that you're gonna wanna check out. Our next one, it actually hits a little bit close to home, at least for me. Speaker 1 00:14:44 My husband actually works for a railroad, a transportation company, and he hauls Powder River Coal. And the Powder River Coal is okay, I'm gonna get a little bit of a history lesson here for you, or science lesson or however you wanna look at that. But Powder River Coal is actually the cleanest burning coal in the country. It's the lowest silver coal. And King Coal is not actually about Powder River coal. It's about coal out on the East Coast. And it's about the community that this, that coal has built around this, this, this entire community would not survive without coal. And coal, I mean, is n is necessary for so much. I know it gets poo-pooed and stuff in a lot of society, but the vast majority of power plants out there are nuclear and coal. Like it or not, I think coal's gonna be around to stay. Speaker 1 00:15:28 It's like <laugh> if you don't like it. I mean, I hope you don't use anything of electricity if you don't like coal. It's just plain and simple. So <laugh>, because I mean all of these other solar and wind and all this, it's not okay. Yeah, I'm okay. I'm getting personalized. Like, like I've said before, I'm a constitutionalist conservative and I believe in common sense and thinking that we're gonna get by on wind power and solar power and all this other stuff is just, it's a pipe dream. So I for one, am gonna continue to keep relying on coal and nuclear and just kind of go along from there. And I feel like, I always tell people, if you don't like it, turn it off. It's just simple <laugh>. And plus that way it would save electricity and you wouldn't have to rely on coal if you don't like it. Speaker 1 00:16:05 Ha ha. But <laugh>, the next book we're gonna be talking about is very touching and it's very tragic in its own way. It's called The Eternal Memory. It's a documentary, surprisingly, it's done by M T V like Music television, M t V. It's a couple that they've been together for 25 plus years and they are facing the horrific battle of Alzheimer's. One of them is suffering from Alzheimer's, and it's their journey together. So it definitely looks a bit heart wrenching. I, it's like I get a little teary eyed just watching the trailer on it, but it again, it's called The Eternal Memory. And this is also coming out for limited release. Pretty much everything we've talked about from Jewels to the Eternal Memory, all of these are limited release. Our next one is called Match Me If You Can. And obviously it's a plan on words to another well-recognized movie. Speaker 1 00:16:55 But honestly, probably the only way I could refer to this one is it Awkward Dating, awkward Romance <laugh>. And it's like speed dating meets blind date on steroids, <laugh>, it's just, it looked silly funny. I don't know. There might be something to this one that, and Match Me If You Can, is coming out on video on demand and digital. We've got two more movies left, so we are almost done. The second to the last one is called Heart of Stone. It's coming out exclusively to Netflix. And this one is basically, if you've ever been a fan of Ethan and Mission Impossible, you're gonna enjoy this one because this is basically a female mission. Impossible. She's basically doing everything that Ethan would do except it's a female version. Again, the whole feminist stuff and all that. So, and yeah, <laugh>, it's just honestly, okay, before I get to the last movie, I gotta say this, so just bear with me here for a second. Speaker 1 00:17:48 Second. But honestly, there is not a single like occupation or anything opportunity that's out there that a woman, there's nothing out there that a man can do that a woman can't occupation wise or opportunity wise. So I don't get the need for all of this. It's like, okay, I would've understood the need for it like many years back. I mean, heck, the year I was born, it wasn't even legal for a woman to get a checking account without her dad or husband's permission and stuff like that. So, or even a credit card. And so yes, there's been a lot of great fights for equal rights and everything and, but all of these movies, the stuff a couple weeks ago, and then this Hollywood is just too much on this bandwagon. And okay, yes, I am a woman, I'm a woman owned company. Guess what? I didn't have to step on anybody or run over anybody or put down any men to get here. Speaker 1 00:18:33 I mean, it's just pretty simple. And again, if you don't like what I'm saying, turn it off. If you do, guess you're gonna just get more of this because this is me, plain and simple <laugh>, and but our last movie that we're gonna be talking about today, and you know what, if you turn it off already, you're probably not gonna miss much <laugh>, but it's called Red White and Royal Blue. This one is coming out to Prime video. And I'm just wondering, it's like, what am it's like Amazon, why? And this you have a female president and they're obviously modeling her after a certain person. I'm sure you can put that two and two together. I don't even wanna mention her name, but her child is over in over in England going to a birthday party. And her child, who's a male, falls in love with the, uh, young Royal who's also a male. Speaker 1 00:19:16 So it's basically a gay love story. They, they meet with the whole thing of this birthday party and then they end up tipping over this cake and it becomes, its international incident and they're trying to make it a wholesome movie, but they're shoving all the woke stuff down your throat. And once again, it's not an overwhelmingly amount of the L G B T Q I A Element l p movies, but, and yes, I coined that a few weeks ago and I actually just kind of, I wanna start using that more often because I think it's funny if it append you too bad <laugh>. So I'm just gonna have fun with this, and I'm hoping you're having fun too. Like, I, I do get a little serious sometimes when I'm talking about coal and talking about family values and the movie about Alzheimer's. It's like I, I enjoy touching on things that are wholesome and things that are just plain common sense. So I'm hoping you're enjoying that. I know I'm enjoying bringing it to you. And I hope we just continue to have a lot of fun because I love this and I can't wait to talk to you about the movies this weekend. So I hope you're having a lot of fun. And please like, subscribe and share if you wanna share this with your friends, family, et cetera. I will of course, be talking to you with the reviews coming up this weekend. And be sure to come back for our upcoming movies podcast next Thursday. Bye-bye.
