Speaker 0 00:00:00 Hello everybody. And welcome back to our upcoming movies podcast, where we're going to be talking about all of the movies that are coming out the week of December 3rd. Now we're going to be talking about a lot of movies this week. We're actually going to be talking about 25. Yes, you did hear me right. 25 movies. Some of these, we're just going to be touching on a little bit because they're ones we've touched on before and they're just going to be available on some different platforms, but other ones we're going to be going just a little bit deeper into you will kind of notice of somewhat of a theme as a lot of these movies coming out this week. I will say that none of them are what would technically be called Ellis movies. These are more of the B list and no list, but I do my best to try to review all of the ones that I can though.
Speaker 0 00:00:44 I'm not sure which ones are going to be available for me to review this week. At least there will be a selection of ones on Netflix for me and for my new listeners. I am actually the deputy of movie, deputy.com, bringing all of this information to you. I can't believe we're into the first week of December already. It's like, I don't know where this year has gone. Some parts of this year felt like they absolutely flew by and other parts just seem to drag out so entirely long. And this whole COVID nightmare has not helped. I mean, just the, just the BS of it all. It's yeah, it's just so stupid, but don't want to get too stuck on that. Let's go ahead and jump into the movies. On November 29th, a Netflix movie called 14 peaks. Nothing is impossible. It's the quest of one man who was a Sherpa.
Speaker 0 00:01:33 And he's now a mountain climber. This is his attempt to reach the summit of the 14 highest peaks in the world. Within seven months, this movie is done in a very similar style to free solo, the Dawn wall and other such climbing movies. I don't know if he is doing this one in a free solo style without any gear, but even if he has all of the gear and everything that does not lessen the impact of the feet that he is attempting, nobody has ever attempted anything like this in such a short timeframe. This is truly going to be an adventure to see if he's able to pull it off. I, for one look forward to it on November 30th, the Netflix movie, the summit of the gods that we talked about that opened on November 24th will be available on Netflix. On December 1st, the Netflix movie, the power of the dog that we talked about on November 17th will also be available on Netflix on December 2nd.
Speaker 0 00:02:31 Another Netflix movie called single all the way opens in limited release. I'm not sure if it's going to be available on Netflix on this day, but if not, I will update you as soon as I know when that will be available on Netflix, but single all the way is a story about two gay roommates. They're best friends, and they're getting ready to go home for Christmas. They decide to kind of pretend to be a couple because one of their mothers is adamant about to fix her son up with somebody on a blind date. Well, they get home and lo and behold mom has fixed him up on a blind date. So he decides to go on the blind date. Everything seems to go absolutely perfectly, but once he's with this blind date, he realizes that the person that he was meant to be with is his roommate and his best friend.
Speaker 0 00:03:19 But if they try and have a relationship and it falls through, then they will lose each other forever. So is it worth the risk and what will happen if they take that chance? It's basically an LGBTQ friendly Christmas romance. That definitely is going to have a limited audience because of the topic and subject of the story. But for those interested in stories like this, this will truly become a classic. And we are up to December 3rd, all of the rest of the movies that we're going to be talking about today, open on December 3rd home. This movie is hard to describe as there was no trailer for it, anywhere that I could find, all I could find was a description that just basically says that an ex-felon returns home from prison and must confront the demons of his past. And I apologize. That's literally all I could find on this one.
Speaker 0 00:04:09 Our next movie is actually coming out on Amazon prime. It's called and counter. It is about a rescue mission of a father to save his two young boys from unhuman creatures along the way. It really challenges what your ideas of love and loyalty truly are and where your priorities lie. It looks interesting. I'm hoping it'll live up to the trailer. The hand of God is another Netflix movie. This one is subtitled even in the trailer. So I kind of gathered from what I could understand that the story is a lot about love and loss, the emotions of inspiration and devastation, and that if you have a story to tell, you should share it with the world, it was kind of hard to tell the overall direction of the story, or like what was kind of happening while this was being explained. But I guess we'll have to find out silent night, it's going to be anything, but this is a dark family comedy with a twist.
Speaker 0 00:05:08 There's a lot of politics and pandering in know that death is coming, but you don't know who they're going to take. It almost felt like a modern day clue the way it was kind of playing out in the trailer based on the cringe factor of the trailer alone. This is not one that I'm looking forward to deadlock is almost playing out like the next diehard. I mean, it's got Bruce Willis in it. It's kind of that whole ex-military revenge gory over the top diehard action, kind of playing out scenario, whether or not it lives up to that. Whether or not it's even going in that direction, or if the trailer was possibly misleading, there's a lot you could take away from the trailer. And there's also a lot of unanswered questions. So is this one worth taking a chance? We'll have to find out in Wolf, it takes mental illness to an entirely different level.
Speaker 0 00:06:04 Wolf is about species identity disorder. Now it's bad enough that we have to try to deal with 50 some odd genders and all of this other crap that goes along with that. But now the story is reaching out to people who have species identity disorder. And unfortunately that is a real thing. Look it up. If you're curious, if not, trust me, you're not missing much, except a lot of stuff that's truly disturbing. But in this movie, all of these people who have the species identity disorder are brought to this retreat to try to learn how to function among normal people. It basically touches on the whole thing that we're all animals and that it comes down to our basic instincts, but the way that it does, so is it's just, like I said, it just crosses that line. That just really makes it difficult. It could end up being funny if it was not trying to be so realistic.
Speaker 0 00:06:58 I mean, this could have been a good comedy if they had gone that direction with it, but it doesn't look like they did it as a matter of fact, it almost feels like they're trying to make it out to be almost like a fairy tale, like a once upon a time ish thing. But yeah, no being a critic though. I'm curious just from the critic perspective, but personally, this is one that I would avoid. If I was not a critic we're going from something super serious and just disturbing to something that maybe plays out with a little bit more entertainment. The next movie is called this game's called murder. It is a game of influence control, money, religion, world domination, and shoe fetishes. Now what does the one have to do it? The rest? This is just one of those ones that you're going to have to wait and find out.
Speaker 0 00:07:45 Unfortunately, they do take some of the things a little bit too far into the whole free for all, almost like Antifa, destroying looting, kind of everything playing out. Hopefully it doesn't go too far in that direction. It's thugs want to be sex, drugs and rock and roll. So like I said, this one at least looks like it could be more entertaining, but it looks like it's still gonna be some of Hollywood ideas that just get shoved down your throat. I'm looking forward to reviewing this one. And as you know, I will bring my honest opinion. Our next movie is castle falls. It is about a hospital that is destined to be destroyed, but before it does it hide the secret, there is something truly valuable about this secret. And it's going to be up to a few particular individuals on whether or not the risk is worth the reward.
Speaker 0 00:08:39 It looks to be like an action crime drama, and I'm hoping that it will live up to that. The last shootout is a Western and in true Western style, it plays out that there ain't no law like wild west law, and ain't no one stronger than someone strong in their convictions here. You've got a family that on one side wants it to be saved. And on the other side wants an escape. How this plays out with the whole wild west ideas remains to be seen, but it looks like it could be interesting. The next movie is a title that I'm not exactly sure how to pronounce it is to pod possibly it's T a P a D it's subtitled. It could possibly be a Bollywood movie except without all the music and dancing, but is it a Bollywood movie? If it doesn't have all the music and dancing do all Indian movies count as Bollywood movies.
Speaker 0 00:09:33 I'm not sure on that, but let's not get too distracted here. And that's all I could really gather from the trailer was nothing is what it seems, even if it's right in front of you. If that sounds extremely vague, that's kind of how the trailer was. So it's really hard to get a feel on this again, I guess at another subtitled movie. And as I've said in the past, I'm not a huge fan of subtitles because it's really hard to pay attention to the story and read the dialogue at the same time, at least for me. But if that's something that you like this may be for you, if it's available to me, I will do my best to try to review it. But if not, it doesn't seem like I'm going to be missing too much. Our next film is a documentary called try harder.
Speaker 0 00:10:15 How many times as kids, teenagers is even adults are. We told to try harder at whatever we're doing. It's like, we can say we tried our best, but there's always somebody that's going to say try harder. That's kind of what's happening here. The class typical roles are flipped. The nerds are at the top of the king of the mountain position. The geeks are taking over everything and it's the jocks. And everybody else that kind of are a little bit lower on the totem pole, because try harder is all about getting into your dream school by school. I'm meaning college. And it's all the pressure that goes along with that. Are we putting too much pressure on these kids to try to focus on a college education when there's so many doctorates and degrees out there that are more of a waste of money than anything, because it's not something that's actually a clickable and real life.
Speaker 0 00:11:07 What happened to like the trades people and stuff like that. I mean, we will never run out of a need of doctors and nurses, which, okay. Yes, you do have to have quite an education to do those, but there's the welders, there's the mechanics, there's all these other things. And so these kids have all this pressure on them to try to do something that may not even end up working out for them and all of this pressure and stress of trying to do all of this and take on all of this debt for, for what that's not really the focus of the movie. The focus of the movie is just the pressure on getting into your dream school and everything that goes along with that. It's, it's presented in an unusual way that well, somewhat limited audience as this is being directed specifically towards people that are pushing hard to try to get that idea, but maybe these same kids just need to rethink those ideas a little bit and truly think about where the path is in life before they go that way, because there's honestly no need for kids to have this much pressure put on them.
Speaker 0 00:12:05 So, I mean, is it really worth it? I guess we'll find out the hard way our next movie is titled flee. It is another subtitled movie done with some animation and some found footage. It's a war documentary that really centers around the LGBTQ side of the story. More so than the simple story of survival. If this was just the story of survival done in this way, it would be done so beautifully. But this shoving, this whole thing of Hollywood shoving the LGBTQ culture down our throats, that this is a bit asinine, to be honest, it's, it's just overdone and it's, I have no problem at all with anybody and the LGBTQ community. I have many friends that are part of the LGBTQ community, and we even discussed stuff like this. It just does not need to be in everything that is done. Yes, their voices are important and their voices should be heard.
Speaker 0 00:12:59 It just doesn't need to be in everything while I get some hate for this guaranteed, but I would much rather be honest and real than be fake and accepted in the movie. The second. And this one, I was a little bit confused when I was looking it up because it comes up with the word second spelled out, and then it also comes up with the numerical value on that. So I'm not sure which way the title is actually supposed to be. So if it's just, when you're searching for, you might want to try looking it up each way until you can find what you're actually looking for. But in this movie, this is about the daughter of a Supreme court justice. She ends up finding herself in the fight of her life. She attends a private school and as the person that normally shows up to pick her up is actually somebody different.
Speaker 0 00:13:43 There is a lot of red flags with that, and then kind of pretty much everything goes wrong and it's truly a fight for her life. As she goes along with this, she is a very valuable asset and the value extends all the way up to our mother and even beyond. And this is going to really dig deep into that whole idea. So what is going to happen? I guess we'll have to wait and find out you've made it with me this far, and we've only got eight more titles to go. Our next movie is called him and her after a lot of the ones that we've been talking about today, this one looks actually refreshing. It's a true story set in 1989 of a person in Chicago and another person in Detroit that somehow their phone lines got crossed. So two complete strangers meeting, just because somehow the lines got crossed.
Speaker 0 00:14:31 And rather than just like hanging up and saying wrong number or bad connection or any of that, they kept talking and it becomes something much more. So it's just a fun coincidence and a fun story. Hopefully it works out for the best. And maybe this will be a story that they'll tell their kids and grandkids. I don't know if that's the direction that the story goes, but I'm hoping the movie vendetta is another movie also has subtitles and this one is based on a true story. And that makes it even more, just kinda like does a WTF moment on that. But I have to admit when I first read the title I'm I am a Simpsons fan. And so when I read Ben Odetta, I, my first thought was the whole thing with Bart Simpson and Shabaab. And there's a scene when they're in Italy and such a Bob's kid is like vendetta, vendetta, vendetta.
Speaker 0 00:15:21 So that's kinda just where my brain went on this. And I know that's not the direction of the movie in any way, shape or form, but I couldn't help myself, but my brain got a one in that direction. But in Ben Odetta, a nun ends up with stigmata and there's a whole thing with forbidden love, highly sexual. You don't necessarily think of the terms, highly sexual and convent in the same sentence, these nuns, it's just very forbidden. It's going to be very much for the LGBTQ community again. But like I said, we just can't escape this stuff, how it plays out. I don't know. I didn't look up the actual story on this. I guess we'll just have to wait and see people who are highly religious are going to find a lot of things to dislike about this movie. Even people that aren't particularly religious are going to be troubled by some of the content.
Speaker 0 00:16:12 It's just, it crosses so many different lines in so many different directions. It's going to be hard to find an audience that this is targeted towards the next story. Isn't anywhere near as controversial in some aspects, but it's even more controversial in others. Citizen Ash is the story of Arthur Ash. It's a feature documentary about a tennis player that fought hard for civil rights, fought hard as a citizen of the world and fought as Valiant battle against aids and helped raise a lot of awareness about that. Unfortunately, Arthur Ash did lose his battle to aids, but his legacy live on. There's a lot of people though, who probably have never heard that name and this story is going to open up a lot of eyes in that direction. Yes. Again, as I've mentioned, in many other moments during this episode, this is yet another LGBTQ friendly movie, though.
Speaker 0 00:17:10 Not in the way that many think there are many that believe that Arthur Ash was a homosexual. And in reality, he wasn't though, even back then he was an ally to the LGBTQ community. Well, this movie honor his memory or will it go in an entirely different direction? Let's just hope it stays true to who he was. And, oh, my word, we just cannot escape these movies today. Our next story is the scary of 61st. It's about two women roommates that actually move into Jeffrey Epstein's apartment. They can literally feel the history of everything that there. And I do mean everything is disturbing as it was again, this movie is very overly LGBTQ friendly. It's a psychological thriller that really pushes different boundaries and explores ideas that truly exposed who he was in a way that people might not be ready for. And I'm going to add in Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself.
Speaker 0 00:18:15 And yay. Finally, another heartwarming, just cute movie that looks like it could actually be something special. It's a Netflix movie called mix tape. A 12 year old girl lost her parents at a young age. Both of her parents died when she was two, but she found a mixed tape that was made by them. And so she starts to explore how the mixed tape was created and the songs that were on it. And you truly able to learn a little bit more about her parents as she learns about this mix tape. It teaches her much more than what she can see in photos and what she can hear from people because here she's actually experiencing something through their eyes, or should I say through their ears? This looks like a really cute movie that I'm absolutely looking forward to. Our next movie is a Shaun, the sheep Christmas movie.
Speaker 0 00:19:04 The title is Shaun the sheep, the flight before Christmas. It's basically the whole stop motion animation of Sean and all of their, the sheep and the humans that are around them. Basically Sean has to try to save Christmas. And this is that adventure. This is a Netflix movie. So be sure to check that out. If you are a fan of Shaun the sheep, or if you have kids or grandkids that are, this next movie will delight many for sure. If you are at all familiar with the diary of a wimpy kid stories, this one is going to warm your heart or ritually. This was going to be a series on Disney plus, but Disney plus decided to make it a movie. Instead, the whole thing is the first diary of a wimpy kid movie done in animation form. And the animation matches the characters as you know, and love them or as you've imagined them.
Speaker 0 00:19:57 And it's like I said, it's the entire first story playing out in an animation form. So if you've ever enjoyed these stories, then this is definitely going to be for you. It is truly the do's and don'ts of middle and last, but certainly not least those who would have been anxiously awaiting dune on video on demand are going to be excited as dune is going to be available on video, on demand this Friday. So yay. If you have not had a chance to see it yet, this is your opportunity. I want to thank you for coming along with me and getting through all 25 of these movies. You know, we normally don't have anywhere near 25. Yeah, I think this is the most yet, but you got to know what I really thought about all these trailers and I hope this will help you make up your mind with some of these decisions. I hope that you'll like and subscribe so you can always get the latest movie, deputy content, be sure to listen in on Tuesday, December seven for our movie recaps. And we will talk to you soon.
