Speaker 0 00:00:00 Well, hello everybody and welcome back. Happy Thursday. I hope you are enjoying our thirsty Thursday weekends as we are bringing you each of the saw movies in order. So if you haven't had a chance to catch up on today's episode yet, be sure to go over and check that one out. As always, this weekend we're gonna be talking about all sorts of the new movies coming out. We're gonna be talking about at least three of them for sure, because they always leave Friday, Saturday, and Sunday open for the new movies and until Monday through Thursday with pretty much everything else. And I'm just having a lot of fun with that. If you are new to the program, I am the Deputy of Movie Deputy Podcasts. Thursdays are kind of a special thing around here. Thursdays we have our Thirsty Thursdays, which we're focusing on the saw series.
Speaker 0 00:00:51 And then of course every Thursday we have our upcoming movies episode that I talk about, all of the movies that have come out that week or this week. <laugh>, you think I would be able to get my verb correct, verbs correct by now, but it's like sometimes my brain just goes Tilt <laugh>. That's a really old pinball game reference for this, you know, for you younger generation folks is when the old pinball games would malfunction it. They would literally say Tilt. And so I kind of call that a brain. My brain malfunction, my brain goes Tilt. So <laugh> that, or that's all folks. But yeah, I'm, it's a lot of really silly references to like Looney Tunes and just stuff from my life. But this week <laugh>, as unfortunate as it is to say, I am not super excited about this episode for you today, and you'll, you'll quickly get the reason why.
Speaker 0 00:01:46 Now, I'm not saying to go to stop listening or anything like that because there are some of you out there that will actually really enjoy some of these movies. Personally, I just watched some of these trailers and I'm going, what in the world am I watching and who is this made for? Some of these, it's like, okay, I like a wide variety movies. I my like my favorite movie of all time is the original Ghostbusters. I love the Notebook, the as cheesy as the 1997 version of Titanic. I love that. I love horror movies, I love drama comedies, everything in between. And I love the old films like Errol Flynn and things like that. And you go way back to the classics of, and so I have a wide, ver wide interest in movies and one of the things I like to talk about is that I eat, sleep and breathe movies. And my husband says, that's actually a pretty accurate description of me because I just basically, I compare things to movies when we travel. I like to go to filming locations, I like to check things out. I like to look up just random facts and things like that about movies or just the really unusual,
Speaker 1 00:02:59 Weird, like creepy ones that usually just kind of creep people out. It's like sometimes I'm even drawn to those and it, like I said, it's just a little bit of everything in my movie interest. And so that's kind of why I do what I do. When I started Movie Deputy, it was more of just kind of a for fun and I really, she's evolved into a, she has a life of her own. We did the website for nine years and now we have switched over to a podcast only format. So we are in the process of getting all of the movies transferred from the website to the podcast. So if you are wanting the latest and greatest, check us out on whatever platform you listen to your podcasts on. And we are in the process of even getting all of our, these podcasts up on our YouTube channel.
Speaker 1 00:03:49 And since it is mainly just me, <laugh>, right? I'm a one person show, this is, it's very time consuming as you can imagine and like doing this, it's like I love sitting here and I'm gonna be getting into these movies to talk to you about them here pretty quick. But go ahead and grab your coffee, your juice, whatever you're hanging out with, whether you're eating breakfast or throughout the day, settle in because we are going to have an adventure tonight that I can guarantee <laugh>. Now, I do want to put a disclaimer on here just because some of these movies are definitely not for Young Ears just because of some of the topics involved. So if you have little ones running around and you'd rather put your ear AirPods or something like that in and listen to this, or if you'd just rather wait till later to listen to it, feel free.
Speaker 1 00:04:40 I just like to give people that warning ahead of time so they're not rushing to pause the program and try to protect the little ears that are involved with that. So <laugh>, but we are actually gonna jump right in with the move with a movie that opened a couple days ago. It actually opened on the fourth, it is called The Legend of the White Dragon. Before I ever saw any of the previews of this, my first thought was like, okay, with the White Dragon, it's gonna be something with Marshall Arts and things like that. And it ended up being a little bit different than I was expecting when I was checking out the, the trailers and everything for this, it's basically of the story of the Dual of Dragons and there's, it looks like a white dragon and a blue dragon and a red dragon, but in, but they, people kind of get these special powers and they have these martial arts things that they're capable of doing. And then they have these unusual swords. They're almost like light saber type swords. It's like, is it a dragon version of Power Rangers? Possibly. I, I'm not exactly sure where they were going with that, but it, the whole thing with the Dual of Dragon seems like an interesting premise, but where they're gonna go with that is it was a little unclear. It at least looked interesting.
Speaker 0 00:06:00 So if you are
Speaker 1 00:06:01 Into any of those types of stories like that or Dragons or if you were a fan of Power Rangers, you actually might get something out of
Speaker 0 00:06:08 This
Speaker 1 00:06:09 On September 5th, which was just yesterday, but I mean, or day before yesterday. I'm getting all off
Speaker 0 00:06:15 On my days here, but there
Speaker 1 00:06:17 Was a movie called
Speaker 0 00:06:18 Thirst.
Speaker 1 00:06:19 We're getting close to the fall here and we're getting into that time of season when there's always the really creepy horror movies and there's definitely a good mix of those this week. But in thirst, it's this guy that has O C D like massively O C D, and he is totally sleep deprived. The thing is, he's craving something, he just doesn't know what it is that he's craving and it's kind of driving him mentally Ill. First thought that came to my mind when I was watching this trailer was
Speaker 0 00:06:50 Schizophrenia. Whether or not
Speaker 1 00:06:51 That has anything to do with it, I don't know, but that it looked bloody, it looked disturbing at the same time. It almost looked fascinating. There's, like I said, there's definitely gonna be an audience for this, but I am unclear on who I would probably recommend for that.
Speaker 0 00:07:12 The movie that came out yesterday, there was just one, and of course we're gonna be talking about the movies that are coming out tomorrow on Friday and that that's a much larger list. But there was one movie that came out yesterday on the sixth, and this one is going to rub a lot of people the wrong way, but it is a very important story to be told. Now, I don't know if you or somebody you love or somebody you know has ever been a Boy Scout or a Girl scout, this movie is actually a documentary about the scouts. Like I said, this one is a very disturbing movie, not in the way you might think or who knows, maybe you're thinking that I'm gonna be going in this direction. But it's titled Scout Honor The Secret Files of the Boy Scouts of America. The Boy Scouts were founded back in 1908 and
Speaker 1 00:08:03 Their whole thing
Speaker 0 00:08:04 Was
Speaker 1 00:08:05 Just to kind
Speaker 0 00:08:06 Of help young boys and eventually young girls with learning how to do a lot of different things. Unfortunately, it was not as innocent as it seemed. Right from the very beginning, the Boy Scouts created this. I'm, I have like, I'm doing air quotes, it's like, I realize you can't see me at the moment, but this, they called it a red flag list. And this whole documentary is about human rights for children. As of the time that this documentary was made, there were eight 82,209 reported cases of abuse within the Boy Scouts of adults abusing children. And it is a very disturbing system of abuse that really is that I think if you've ever been a parent or if you want to be a parent or if you've ever been involved with children's programs or if you have ever even been a Boy Scout or a Girl Scout, this is gonna be one that you're gonna want to check out because I think stories like this can really go a long ways.
Speaker 0 00:09:09 I mean, I know 82,000 seems like a large number, but I'm sure there are many others that haven't come forward yet. A story such as this I think would help a lot of people still come forward because even though 82,000 seems like a large number, the number could be far larger than that, far larger than we can even contemplate at this point. So like I said, this one actually, it's like I said, it's gonna be a disturbing one, especially from any survivors of this type of abuse. And though I was never involved personally with the scouts or anything like that, it's like as a survivor of abuse myself, this one, it, yeah, it, it ties your gut and knots and what you've realized how systemic that was within the Scouts. It is just it, it's disturbing on an entirely different level. So hopefully this will help some voices be heard and hoping, hopefully open some eyes.
Speaker 0 00:10:06 So I'm glad that they went ahead and made something like this, but no, there's not really a but to that. I don't know why I said but, 'cause there's not really a, but this, this is a story that needed to be told on the eighth <laugh>. We're getting into a lot of movies that are coming out tomorrow that <laugh>, if you've listened to me for long, you know that there's certain things that I hate and one of them being subtitles. Well, I really lucked out this week. There's only three movies opening tomorrow that have subtitles. And you may be wondering, okay, how she's gonna go from such a serious movie of talking about the scouts to talking about different titles and different themes. Yeah, you're just, like I said, this is gonna be an adventure. So just hang on, we're getting there, <laugh>. And mind you, I do go ahead and go in order that the movies are listed when I open them up on Movie Insider's website and they, that is where I get the list of the movies and that's what I go through and I wash all of the trailers and then bring this information to you.
Speaker 0 00:11:08 So that is why the movies are in the order that they're in. It's not that I place them in there in any order of preference or anything like that, but the first one, but Tarot, stop it, sorry. Getting on one of my kitties here, he's misbehaving <laugh>, but the first movie is called Aristotle and Dante discovered the secrets of the universe. And this one, it's kind of a coming of age story. These two young men, one has a big brother in jail and his parents are trying to make sure he doesn't end up like his brother. The other one is just kind of a loner. They slowly become friends as they realize they have some stuff in common and they slowly fall in love. So obviously it's like a gay love story type thing. So that
Speaker 2 00:11:52 Alone is gonna limit its audience. We're gonna see kind of a theme along with that of some movies that are coming out this week. Now our next one is a lot more lighthearted and actually has a bit of a following. Now the movies, my Big Fat Greek wedding and my Big Fat Greek wedding too, have been semi hits. I mean they're, they've been hits and misses depending on the market that they were aimed towards. But this one picks up with the same family, of course, but the father has died with that. His last wish was for his family to visit his childhood home. So the family picks up and they all go to Greece. And the whole thing with going back to Greece is they wanna have a family reunion and they wanna get all of their dad's friends all together, but the trip doesn't go quite as planned.
Speaker 2 00:12:41 <laugh> turns out in a lot of really touching hilarity, a lot of, there's gonna be a lot of emotions involved with this movie and it just, it's gonna pull tug on a lot of heartstrings. It's, it's gonna kind of bring the story that we've seen from when she was first living at home to going off and getting married now to basically being the head of the family. I don't know, it looks very sweet. I am, there was a couple scenes where it was kind of explaining what was going on, and I can't say for sure I'm, I'm almost afraid to even say this. I'm really hoping it didn't go woke. But it, like I said, there was a couple sink in the trailers that almost made me go, it's like, don't tell me they're going in that direction, but I'm just hoping that it's just something that they hint to and that they don't go off the deep end with the story because these stories have been so wholesome from the get go that I'm hoping they continue down that path.
Speaker 2 00:13:40 Our next movie is just it. It looks almost entertaining. I couldn't help, I didn't realize I was smiling when I was watching the trailer until I was like, oh, why am I smiling at this? 'cause it's kind of disturbing. But the movie is called Poor Things and it's a human experiment. Picture Frankenstein meets Phantom of the Opera. I know that that combination sounds very unusual, this human experiment thing, her brain and her body aren't in sync, and it just, how it plays out almost looked like it was trying to be a comedy, but not really. It looked more dramatic. So that one, it definitely piqued my interest and I'm actually hoping that one might be somewhere near me to watch. Now our next one, <laugh>, if you have caught the review cut, I think it was yesterday, did that. But the nun, the original nun movie was so disappointing, but at the same time it had a couple jump scares in it.
Speaker 2 00:14:43 Honestly, when you're, when you hit that far bottom with the first movie, that's the only place, the only place you can go is up. At least that's what I'm hoping with the none too. This one is taking place at a Catholic school. Is it connected to the original like convent? I'm not sure, but there's this evil present and the students decide to search for this presence. And it's kind of just basically that this angel's rejected by God. She's been thrust into hell and she wants the power back and she wants to be, she, she doesn't wanna redeem. It's like she wants to be in charge of hell almost. Now, I'm not using that word as a cuss word. I'm using that word in the reference of the movie. So if that offends you at all, I apologize. But it's, like I said, I'm not using it as a curse word.
Speaker 2 00:15:27 I'm using it as a reference to the movie itself. So if you were a fan of the first one, you might really enjoy this. If you weren't at the fan of the first one, um, I can't say I'm confident you'll enjoy this <laugh>. This is one that I will be reviewing this weekend and bringing you the review. So if you are at all curious, come back and check it out. Now our next one, I said some of these movies are just plain mental. That's probably about the best way to put it. The next one is called Good Boy. And unfortunately this is a subtitled movie. So yeah, you know what, I think a subtitles. So this guy goes on a date, the date goes really well. So they go home, <laugh>, everything's going great. They spend the night together, they wake up the next day and this girl wakes up to this dog on the side of the bed, except it's not a dog, it's a human dressed up like a dog that insists on being treated like a dog.
Speaker 2 00:16:25 So her dates like, just treat him like a dog, pet him, pretend he's a dog, <laugh>. And so it's just kind of how that whole thing plays out and how mentally unstable this guy is that actually dresses as the dog is revealed as the movie goes on. And how she plays into this and will is, uh, it's a little unclear based on the trailers. If you're into that kind of thing and you're into furries, there may be something you get from this. If you are, if you identify as a creature, as a dog or as another animal instead of as a human being, there's a lot of mental health professionals that can help you out there. And yes, I know I'm gonna upset a lot of people with that. If you don't like what I'm saying, you can feel free to turn it off <laugh>.
Speaker 2 00:17:13 That's all good there. Now our next one is also a subtitled movies, and I'm a subtitled movie, and forgive me if I butcher the name. It's called Mega Megalomaniac. And this one is also, like I said, a subtitled movie. This one felt like it was kind of a rip on jeepers creepers. There's these really brutal, horrible killings by this monster that are taking place about 25 years apart. It seems to happen on a cycle. It just looked really gory, really just, ugh, <laugh>, there's it. I wasn't able to discern a lot from the trailer except the fact that it was just this gap of time, this monster and just really bloody and gory. So that's it is, yeah, it is what it is. Our next one is called My Animal <laugh>. Like I said, the movies that we're talking about this week almost seem to have a theme, but there's a few good ones mixed in, so don't, don't give up on Me yet.
Speaker 2 00:18:15 There are a few good ones mixed in <laugh>, but this one is based, uh, it's a lesbian couple. One of them really doesn't fit in. And there's this creature that kind of plays a part. It's like this one and The Good Boy movie almost could go hand in hand. They're both about romance and some weird creature and this love affair. So some of these are just wow <laugh>, and I'm not, not meaning that in a good way. The next one is we're getting back on the track of a little bit more normal movies. It's called Shadow Island, unfortunately, it is another subtitled movie. There's this guy going out to this lighthouse island and he is there to study weather. He's searching for answers, but what he finds is a lot more than what he's looking for because he's searching through this lighthouse and then he's going through this darkness.
Speaker 2 00:19:11 And the, you think with it being a lighthouse that there would actually be some light in the midst of all of this, and there kind of is in the metaphorical sense, but when the secrets start to be revealed, he is gonna find a lot more than what he was looking for. <laugh>. The next one, this is one of the ones that I really was trying to get to give the disclaimer for in the, in the beginning, because this one is not gonna be, sorry, <laugh>, I'm just thinking about the trailer. And this one is not it gonna be safe for young audiences. I mean, heck, it's not gonna be safe for most adult audiences, <laugh>, but <laugh> and the title is almost fitting, the title is called Rotting in the Sun. Now, <laugh>, when you hear me describe a little bit more of this, you'll understand why I'm chuckling.
Speaker 2 00:19:58 But in this movie, the these guys are doomed to live in torment. They're nudists, they're gay, they're on this beach, they're movie creators. And so the ones in the business ones trying to get in the business. But the thing is, there's dicks everywhere. Now, mind you, in the trailer, they're blurred <laugh>. They're, but they're not blurred well enough and they're literally everywhere. And that's almost like where the camera focuses <laugh>. And so the fact that it's called Rotting in the Sun, <laugh>, it's like my brain went a whole different direction with that. But I like, it's not meant to be a comedy. This is meant to kind of be a serious drama, but I, there's no way I could ever take it as that. My brain was just like, what in the world? So, okay, okay. If you're into that type of movie, maybe you'll enjoy that.
Speaker 2 00:20:52 If not, yeah, please run, run far, run fast. <laugh> our next one. Again, I'm probably gonna butcher the title on this one, but it's called America Sea. It's too Long, lovers. They, they, they broke up a long time ago, like 20 years ago, and just randomly they happened to meet in this airport where they both have a connecting flight to their destination. There's a storm, a bunch of flight delays, and they ask themselves, what if it's got Meg Ryan, it's got David De Coveney, and it just, it looks kind of cute. I'm hoping that the story has developed a little bit more than what I was seeing in the trailer, but it does look like it could have a lot of promise. So fingers crossed. Now our next one is, before I even tell you the title, I'm going to warn you that this next story is about social injustice and over the top woke.
Speaker 2 00:21:49 So <laugh> it, the, uh, this one I just, it's about a writer. She's written over a hundred books and she thinks of herself as a neutral being. The thing is, she completely lacks personality. She tries to write her books from this thing of social injustice and just the woke term didn't even exist until a few years ago, but she was woke before woke was woke, if that makes any sense. But the movie is actually titled Joyce Carroll Oates. Now, that's probably gonna be a name that you recognize if you are a fan of any of her books, but the title is Joyce Carol Oates, A Body In The Service of Mind. I said, this whole thing has to do with how she approaches with the books that she's written. It is a documentary about her life and her books. The Reason why she writes the books that she writes, if you are a fan of her books, great, you are probably going to love this movie.
Speaker 2 00:22:47 If you are not, then again, this is gonna be one, two, as I've said, run, run Fast. Now the next one is probably one of the ones I am most looking forward to this week. If you've ever been a fan of Stephen King, you will like this one. It is called King on Screen, and this one is an entire movie made about the filmmakers who brought Stephen King stories to life. It is all from the perspective of the filmmakers, and so they have a different view of the Stephen King stories than the ones we might imagine. And okay, when you think of Stephen King, you probably think of bloody gory, spooky stories. But he's also brilliant. He brought us stories like the Green Ma, the Green Mile, the Shawshank Redemption, things like that. These, these were Stephen King stories as much as like the Laniers and Stand By Me and all these other stories were as well.
Speaker 2 00:23:42 But there was so much more to the man than what we've realized from just his books. And so this is the perspective from the filmmakers. And like I said, this one actually really looks interesting. So fingers crossed, I'm hoping that it will be as good as it looks. This next one, it does hit a little too close to home. I'm gonna explain why. I'm actually gonna share something about myself with this next movie. There will be a lot of people that this one is gonna be a hard one to even hear, a even harder one to watch, but I think there is an important message here that needs to be shared. I'm gonna explain that here in just a second. The movie is called Wake Up Stories from the Front Lines of Suicide Prevention. And now suicide is a very touchy topic. I, many years ago, back in my teen years, I attempted at three different times and thankfully I did not succeed.
Speaker 2 00:24:41 But I know that feeling even today of times being just hopeless and thinking that my loved ones would be better off without me. Thankfully, it's not a lingering thought, but I know with some people it really can be. And this really kinda goes deep into people that have lost loved ones to suicide, people that work on the front lines of the suicide prevention hotline and like things that can be done to intervene and the the chances where they don't get a chance to intervene of helping the survivors that are left behind. There is so much to these types of stories and there are so many stories that are yet to be told. So like I said, this one is, like I said, it's gonna be very touchy for a lot of people, but it does look important. Our next one is actually inspired by True events.
Speaker 2 00:25:31 It's called Sitting in Bars with Cake. Title. Could not be any more on the nose with the story. It's an amateur baker and she makes these cakes for friends and for loved ones, but she decides to make one cake a week for a year and just take it into the local bar and let people enjoy it. Along the way, she is hit with some devastating news about her own personal health. And so she has to try to find something to focus on to get through this. And her friend is right there with her and everything, but sometimes it's just not enough to have somebody there with you. Sometimes you need something to fight for in yourself. And I think this was her story of not only survival, but success as well. So I kind of have high hopes for that, but I, it's kind of hard to tell our last movie The Week, and again, I didn't put these in any particular order.
Speaker 2 00:26:28 These are the order that I got them off of Movie Insider, but the last movie is called Finest Kind. Now that's all one word. It's not, it's not finest kind two different words. It's one continuous word. The only thing I know about it, because there's very little information online, is that it's a crime thriller with Tommy Lee Jones and Jenna Ortega. That's a real big help, I know. But believe it or not, we got through all 18 movies. I hope that there was at least something in here that spoke to you. If not, as always, I'm here every Thursday bringing the new ones to you, and please like should subscribe and share to our movie reviews podcast as well as this upcoming movies. Like I said, these upcoming episodes just come live once a week, but our movie reviews, we have one live every day.
Speaker 2 00:27:19 So if you are looking for something fun and exciting, or at least something that you would consider interesting because that's one thing a, that people say about me is I'm never boring. Now, if I bore you today, I'm sorry, but it's like <laugh>. I am just kind of a goofball and it's been a just, it's this early and it's already been a long day, so I should not say that already, <laugh>, but I am just hoping that some of these movies will be better than I am anticipating until next week, or I guess until if you're listening to the movie Reviews podcast till tomorrow, I will be back and talk to you soon. Bye.
