Back in the day. in 2000 they released a bunch of great movies. Back in the day, they released Bedazzled Brendan Fraser and directed and co wrote by Harold Ramis with the same producer that I think I wrote or had produced that one in the sixties with only more so, yeah, technically to remake. But whatever
spk_2:
00:40
Crack open a cold box of wine or pour something cold on ice...because it is the Binge-Watchers Podcast
spk_0:
00:55
I'm gonna commit, like vigil suicide here and make a bunch of film historians pissed off, probably or common defense pissed off, actually, like the 2000 version of Bedazzled much better than the sixties version of Bedazzled. But you can actually find the old one on daily motion if you want to take a look at it. It's probably also creeping around on some of these YouTube channel. I'm sure somebody has, like, ripped it off for everybody to watch.
spk_1:
01:19
Well, I I feel I'm prepared. I wanted to watch the original, but it didn't fit in.
spk_0:
01:24
I think the modern one is better now. I'm like, Do we like we haven't got a pay homage to Ramos because he's like one of the godfathers of comedy movies. Essentially, like if you're talking about film history is one of the pillars of comedy, really. I mean, we're talking about Animal House Before that. He's the comedy and joke like reviewer at Play with Magazine, one of his first gigs. And then he goes on to work on like movies like Co Running like Stripes, Him and Bill Murray. You're connected to the SCTV and as I was kind of like John Candy like the whole crew of people. And of course he's like and you know, um, he's in all the Ghostbusters and you can work on the Ghostbusters cartoon, But he's like a prolific writer, as faras comedy writers go, and we've got to give him credit for Caddyshack. But like Caddyshack, Snot, my fair, but also but Meatballs. Do You Like me? Falls to me is a comedy classic, like I actually love that movie because it's a moral Chandramukhi. It's not comedy and drama. And also like Bill Murray before he had become like Bill Murray. You know how, like all the great comedic actors or character actors, like at some point become like hyper real versions of themselves. Like right now it's happening to Kevin Hart and the Rock like they're basically just themselves in movies and had him thio happen to Adam Sandler for a long time, too. But I know you were saying Adam Sandler's new movie is really great, but, um, Bill Murray, when they made meatballs really wasn't a name, you know what I mean? So he was, like, fresh, kind of make a name for himself in Harold in a pretty good scripts. So the rest of Syria's whatever, like they made a bunch of people movies. But if you go back to the original and it wasn't gonna go on a diatribe or like a Qianjin, I was just trying to say, like, trying to establish, you
spk_1:
03:10
know? Yeah, here Ramos like, Yeah, well, he's directed like some of the greatest movies you mentioned Caddyshack. He directed National Lampoon's Vacation Course Ground Hog Day.
spk_0:
03:21
Yes, but he also did club paradise headed back to school with Dangerfield here. Also wrote that that dog cartoon Dangerfield the What is it? Rover Dangerfield? Yeah, he wrote that army.
spk_1:
03:33
I haven't I'm soft spot for multiplicity. Funny. You know what seven years but
spk_0:
03:39
breaking out like director Ville. He also did the analyze this and analyst that movies, right? And I think you feel like the shrink in the movie, right? Didn't play the other shrink. The strength of the street goes to I don't know. He pops up in some of his movies here, here and there. Um and then obviously the ground hog's day in Everybody should be in tune with that. So anyway, anyway, like hair again, maybe he's not even just like a one of the godfathers of comedy. The mother will say he's a comedy. God. At this point, he's like a legend. Uh oh. So there you go. And then and then And then the movie obviously stars my man, Brendan Fraser, who, like I've liked most of his movies. I mean, he had I am, To be fair, they've been writing articles lately about him called Look, you know what happened to Brendan Fraser, right? If you go back, I mean, we're talking Encino man at 92 school ties and 92 son in law. He pops up is his character from, you know, man. Yeah, because airheads in 94 which is incredible. And there's a baseball prodigy movie called The Scout. He's really good in that.
spk_1:
04:48
Yeah, that's a great movie.
spk_0:
04:50
Yeah, um, he pops up in now and then, but he's uncredited, but that's a good movie if you want to just, like, watch a coming of age story that has a pretty good heart. But then he's in the twilight of the golds.
spk_1:
05:03
He doesn't remember that.
spk_0:
05:04
Yeah, um, he does the jungle, but we'll let that one go.
spk_1:
05:09
But you know, again, I have been watching since I was probably, like, 12 or 13. But I like judges. The jungle
spk_0:
05:17
Well, Fraser, the more dramatic stuff and the kiddie stuff. You watch him in gods and monsters. But, I mean, we know that he does my like he has, like, a bunch of movies to come out of 99. That's probably his peak year, right? It is the money that we do right, And he does a blast from the past. Now, like my two favorite movies of his are the money and Blast from the past and Blast In the past, he plays a guy that gets like raised in a bomb shelter because his parents think that they're they're going to a world war like
spk_1:
05:48
right vertically award. Yeah,
spk_0:
05:50
so they have a follow Children and then he comes out of there when they need to restock supplies. It's kind of, Ah, low tech science fiction, comedy romantic comedy. But it's pretty interesting. A solution of Silver Stone and one of the guys from brains in the hallway or where
spk_1:
06:06
oh, that's right, you can't remember. Yeah, this is one of those I caught for the first time with the last two or three years. I think my wife wanted to watch. It was like I had never watched. It was pretty, pretty cute little movie blast from the past
spk_0:
06:21
and then the money, which is incredible because somebody wanted to remake the money. And this is big, like, swashbuckling epic. And it's actually my favorite like rendition of The Mummy on screen pretty much of all time and like his character is really awesome. And it's kind of like Peek Brendan Fraser. So if you're a true Brendan Fraser fan, you know you can watch the money and money to any other mummies. After that, we're gonna forget about and then you,
spk_1:
06:47
isn't it?
spk_0:
06:48
Yeah, exactly. And then, boom, you suddenly arrived in the year 2000 and this movie comes out called Bedazzled and essentially the devil's Uh huh. I don't know what she is. She's like a commerce or of collecting souls. And I mean, it's kind of high tech. I mean, she runs this program, but you really don't know that because they never really show it. But all these people being tagged in the beginning, the movie based on their sins or acolytes and calculates which city will be off the mold to collect souls in which city is not X, y and Z, and the main character is just he's the guy that nobody wants to grab a beer with. So the story starts out like the lowest point. But
spk_1:
07:33
yeah, he s so desperately wants friendship and a girlfriend and urged conviction. But what's really
spk_0:
07:39
use like everybody has a guy like that in their office. Probably right? Oh, yeah. But then I guess if you were that person, you wouldn't know it. You think it means it's probably somebody that could be. What's that?
spk_1:
07:53
Huh? I wonder if that's me. But no, I don't go bug around. Hey, you wanna go hang
spk_0:
07:57
out? Uh, you know it's interesting, though is like basketball has a weird theme in this movie. Granite, like it's one of the wishes of the guy gets. But I noticed in his office he has a sticker for the basketball team and basketball. Every time there's a TV in the background, it's usually a basketball game that's playing. So I don't know exactly, like if the production designer or the filmmakers themselves for basketball fans or if they were just trying to Sprinkle elements from all the wishes throughout the scenes. I
spk_1:
08:27
think that's kind of it, because it has a very Wizard of Oz feel to it. I mean, in the sense that, like everybody plays a role into each fantasy scenario,
spk_0:
08:36
well, that I thought was cool. What you really have is like like five or six stories within a story, and you're and you're right. His coworkers play characters and all the fantasies that he lives out, which is pretty interesting, and their loyalty is kind of like are the same, like how their characters, like there was a gay joke aboutthe one guy who becomes his gay lover. And the one scenario like beginning that movie like you got his ass after something like that and then come to find out like That's the one who's the partner in this area where he ends up being gay, you know, like write. And what am I talking about? Everyone's like, What the fuck is you're talking about guys, Gays got scenarios. I guess we should back up and give like some. Well, we did say the devil was looking around for souls this deal and I think like the nightclub you see, they're Dante's Inferno or literally The Devil's Night Club is like all the souls that she has collected, like actually here, and think about all the people in that place. And I'm just like is after collection, you know, like, Is that who she's collected before she gets toe Elliot and collects in? But it was funny thing, too, is he works in like a a call centre office environment, which is very familiar to me. I had a lot of gigs like that. They were like tech support over the phone, so it's recognizable. He's like your average Joe kind of thing and gets tempted and and takes the offer, right? And then it's like, Okay, you're gonna get seven wishes and he's like, infatuated with this girl in his office. And so he wants to see if enforces a mean and I was like, Well, in the age of consent definitely can't force somebody to fall in love with you with magic wishes. But I was like, Oh, but it had an innocent intention. He was just a lonely guy that wanted to find love. But I was like, Oh, it's gonna end badly because, yeah, you can't sign a contract with the Devil to try to force somebody to fall in love with you. Yeah, I mean, um, well, my favorite lines in the beginning of the movie, like when she's first trying, Um, she kind of picks him up in a bar like he says some phrase. And I guess the devil was just kind of like air marking these things that happened to be in the area. I don't know. Her radar picked up like his fact that he wanted to wish for something in the local bar. And then it's like, Hey, let's test this theory into like he wants a Big Mac so that she takes a bus and goes to get a Big Mac and then he pays for, which is really funny.
spk_1:
10:49
That kind of tickled me.
spk_0:
10:51
Yes, he still had to pay for his burger, even though it technically qualifies as a wish. But then he said something like when he first met the devil. He said, Maybe I should call you a cab. Gonna be kind of hired to find one that goes to hell this time of night. And the delivery of it is like spot on the way Frazier delivers, and it's really funny. I mean, I probably just like butchered it when I'm trying to retell it. But it was really good in the movie. Anyway, Um, one of my favorite sequences is like right up at the beginning. When he has, he turns into, like Pablo Escobar. Yes, he wishes to say, like one of the rich and powerful be respected. And then he's like a Colombian drug lord in a giant like hacienda. And then there's like there's, like a rival take over because the English tutor wants to take over everything and then he finds out like, yeah, he's not growing sugar in his plantation. It's like all like all those guys air processing, cocaine form or whatever. And his wife doesn't love him. She's having an affair with the English instructor, right? What I notice, though, is the actors are all speaking Spanish like it's their own like it's their own like they took the time to learn the phrases, at least how dare I say them back correctly, which that's pretty unique. Like otherwise it would have been dubbed or something. But it looked like Brendan Fraser and the rest of the actors were all tryingto, you know correctly say the lines.
spk_1:
12:11
Yeah, I mean this movie, Uh, Brendan Fraser is a great physical comedian, but he's also a pretty great huh? Like, um, you know, uh, you know, like word player, you know, like he doesn't get enough credit for, you know, kind of delivering ship. Yeah,
spk_0:
12:26
I think there's a pretty good study of the work he has to do, and he's pretty good at doing like the business. They call it business, like given an act or something to do in the scene. He's pretty about having like, natural business, where he kind of like can I mean, but that's why he's the leading man. He can embody a scene, and he can kind of react to like, what? Whatever the scenario isn't like, you said, the physical comedy aspect of it or whatever. Um and then ah, scenario three is my lead is my least favorite. Like we're on the third wish because they count the Big Mac. Then they do the Colombian drug Lord. And the third wish is like the sensitive idiot like he's the guy so so sensitive that he breaks out crying at the sunset, right,
spk_1:
13:07
because everyone was a basketball or my reversing those
spk_0:
13:10
university vestibules. Next, we'll get to that.
spk_1:
13:12
Okay, then they were on the same page. Yeah, the sensitive one was my least favorite. Also,
spk_0:
13:16
Yeah, you got to that point because between I think between the second and third wishes, he's actually like doing some re con with the devil inside of her bedroom, and he's reading her. He the devil reads part of her journal about how she wants a sensitive person who understands their feelings and and the devil basically is. It's kind of weird, like she takes pleasure and, like screwing up his wish is ultimately just trying to get to the final wish. And I guess I'm a sense because if she didn't employ tactics to ruin each wish, he might stop wishing right. You may not get there. All seven wishes. If he gets what he wants on the first wish, you might be satisfied and stop wishing they'll be locked in limbo. But that that's what the deal. I was drunk. If I had seven, I tried only use five. You just say I'm saying, like if you could just, you know, I'm gonna burn it healthy end. So you might as well live like an immortal for 800 years on five wishes and then cash it in. You mean? Um also, if you're attracted to the devil like she hits on him in the beginning and they do make out it's just for laughs and giggles, but But I was like, or you could be the guy that hooks up with the devil, you know, like one of the rocks here
spk_1:
14:26
is it? What is it saying? It's better role in hell than to serve in?
spk_0:
14:31
That was from the movie, wasn't it? They said
spk_1:
14:33
uh, we're Was it? Ah, dogma.
spk_0:
14:38
I don't know. We'll follow that up. Want to get back to that folks anyway? Yeah, so then he doesn't sensitive idiot. He cries of the sons that, uh, girl ditches him for his other friends who are not like these macho, you know, guys at the beach or whatever you know, takes off with them and he's like, Oh, that's what she wants. I got to be that guy and like you said, he turned. He turns into ah, Dennis Rodman type basketball player who was supposed to Supposedly he kind of looks like Dennis Rodman. But that has the skills of Michael Jordan and by Dennis Rodman. I mean, he has bleached hair, he's very tall, has tattoos and kind of like has his character embodiment. But then it short changed in short change. Work counts, and so she's No. One you're interested in. Him is a basketball player so that he's like, I want to be well endowed. I want to be very smart. I want to be educated and we will be respected, kind of want to be famous. And two, that's wish. Five. He gets to be a writer in in, like, you know, New York's art society Credit Comm Peel supposedly won a Pulitzer Prize, but then he turns out to be homosexual, which I guess is she just the devil just makes that part of the lifestyle. I'm not sure, but, um, but the guy playing his boyfriend is really funny. Really funny, dude. You mean? And then he did after his sexuality. And he's like, Oh, yeah, I am gay. Okay, I'm gay. Whatever. And then, uh, and then, um, the six wish comes pretty quick. What is the six wish?
spk_1:
16:06
Yeah, I'm having trouble because is in this. Oh, because this isn't this where, like, there's a whole debate of ah by our six embellishes and that the Big Mac.
spk_0:
16:18
Oh, yeah, yeah. She said, um, so we have one is the big man, too. Is Pablo Escobar. Three is a sensitive idiot for its eventual player. If I was the writer six, I forget what sixes he tries. What is it? That last thing he tries?
spk_1:
16:32
I can't. I'm struggling to remember
spk_0:
16:35
anyone. He tries something. It's not a big deal. It's gotta be the one. That's kind of Russia's. I not remembering it But then he he is up in jail. And because you were comporting scenarios with what's happening and he gets thrown in jail, then he, um, meets God because God is the sell me and informed the devil can't really give away souls because they're not hers to give away. And it's trying to help Elliot established, like, re establishes true faith or whatever. And get your plane gods really, really legit. Kind of a cool dude. Yeah, I forgot to write his name down. I had intended to Sorry, everybody that I forgot his name, but just watch me dazzled. He's in it, right? Yeah. Exactly. And, uh, well, actually, no. We have the technology. You have a cell phone next to me. I'll look up the dazzled. Exactly. So bear with us, huh? Why you going with us? You can click the links in our little video and you can go rent the movie. You can want for desert for yourselves. And if not, you can just keep going with us and we'll finish talking about it. Let's see. I'm not seeing his name. Damn. Yeah, I It was 85 people in this movie. Oh, we didn't even talk about the holes in this hurly was actually the double Sorry. And a large cojones is in it. You know, those are the two big stars. Uh, well, me, Brian Doyle Murray pops up to Oh, he gets arrested. That's why he gets arrested. He goes to see a priest about having to deal with the devil in the priest, thinks he's a psychopath and letting its arrested, which is really weird, because I don't think people would necessarily get arrested. They would just, ah, more likely he would go to the hospital and they would give him like, uh, they would check him out, you know? Do you mean and see if if he was all right or
spk_1:
18:26
whatever? Well, yeah, the one guy, he wasn't a name at the time, but the one that plays his gay lover in the one scenario and, uh, one of his coworkers, Toby House would not come like you can have a better career later on down the line, like he was on that hole and catch fire show he was on the most recent ah, Halloween movie, my last. Sure. I think it took me a while to recognize who he is because he had almost full head of hair. Now he's kind of bold. So, um, as for movie this movie light and I'm surprised at how fast this movie moves, it doesn't like waste time and just kind of keeps going.
spk_0:
19:11
Oh, Gabriel, Cash is that's you played God, everybody. The final wishes. He decides that he wants the girl that he thinks is in love with him just to have a great life. And apparently that's a deal breaker in that 4000 page contract that Devil had him sign the the beginning of the movie. So then he's freed up for whatever goes back to the stage. It was a job. Um, okay, what's your overall thoughts of like the whole movie?
spk_1:
19:39
I really enjoyed it. I hadn't I don't think I watched it since it first came out on video. Probably, you know, 1920 years ago. Um, I really liked it then, but I haven't, like, felt the need to go back and we watch it, but re watching it. I remember there was a lot of stuff I remembered, Um, just a fun movie and like, it kind of hits you at the end. It has a very sweet, appropriate ending. And it kind of like, Ah, you know, good for him Kind of thing
spk_0:
20:04
is definitely one of the more appealing to romantic comedies has come out over the last couple of decades. And it was like right at the peak of that sub genre, like romantic comedies were like the legit thing between 97 basically 4001. There was a ton of romantic companies, and that was like the thing and it borders line between just being like a slapstick comedy and a romantic comedy. But yeah, he spoiler alert he has over the girl, but not exactly someone they had the same actress player because they, just like Dave said, kept doing the scenario where each life that he had, the actors would play the rules. So the girl comes back, but in a different form and for some reason, my memory. She was like the cousin of the other girl, but it was just because I guess my mind filled that gap in between. Like why did she look like exactly like her? You know, right? But she's just completely different person from the other. I think it was Alison was the name of the girl he was trying to, um, you know, sort of speak woo over with magic. But then he leaves the cellar girl who moves in, and she's into all that kind of crap that he's into. It looks like they're gonna be together. Then they show you start to date. Then, of course. You know, credits roll or what have you? You know, um, that that's that's bedazzle day was, uh Oh, good.
spk_1:
21:24
No, I'm just saying, like one. Ah, another compliment. I want to give his Like everybody plays. All the actors are on top of their game because they play essentially six or seven different roles each. Most of the main actors.
spk_0:
21:36
Yeah, this is a good showcase movie. They're like, Oh, we're gonna have a little bit of range here because we are playing these different characters in the stories. So we're gonna be able to change it up and try a few different things
spk_1:
21:47
and, you know, a lot. Ah, a lot of credit will course. Go to Brendan Fraser and, um, Elizabeth Hurley. But, you know, even the girl, he kind of lust after I've played by Francis of Connor kind of holds her own as well. I mean, she's not show offy, but, uh, I think I don't know it right. It's just kind of ah has a really good cast. And, ah, we was at a clip like he keeps moving, moving. It doesn't slow down at all, which is kind of nice
spk_0:
22:14
for interesting. And in other movie news, there was saying he's been able to binge watch a lot of stuff, causes ladies at a town, and I'm watching some new things, too. So let's do a round of that A Z wrap this one up. Let's talk about what's new in the world was streaming and everything else.
spk_1:
22:33
Um, well, you go first with would've actually cracked
spk_0:
22:36
open the boys on Amazon, which is like a show. Yeah, it's like an anti superhero drama, and it's pretty interesting. Um, the main characters are very mortal, but obviously they're the antagonised are actually the superheroes. They're superheroes that actually really dirty underneath the surface, and they work for a corporation. Um, yeah, I'm, you know, cruising through this first season, they released thoroughly enjoying it, and it's kind of funny because it's almost like a parody of all the Marvel cinematic universe movies and some of the famous superheroes, as if you know, they'd be walking around. It's like famous sticks in the road world, and they would be doing terrible things. You think you might be behind the scenes and look at this is pretty fucking interesting. Also, you feel scared for the main characters because they could literally get killed terribly, horribly and any if anybody finds out what they're trying to do. You know so
spk_1:
23:31
well, jumping off the superhero TV show thing. I just started watching the new watchman show. That's actually pretty good. So far. Only three episodes in but pretty hooked on tape is pretty well deserving on that one.
spk_0:
23:44
It's kind of like a sequel. Jump off from the other events and the other Watchmen comic, I guess, and not
spk_1:
23:51
the activating them. Yeah, it takes place in the world, like 30 years later. I mean, uses Ah, you kind of have to know the story at least to know, like some of the references. But it's ah, it's just a new story in that world. So, uh, you know you can watch the independent of that just kind of know what you're getting into. You
spk_0:
24:13
know, Preston Carpenter isn't a superhero thing now isn't one of the DC Universe Show's called Doom Patrol like in Place Roll, huh? Yeah, so they go it all ties together. People know it all matches up. I do. I hear it's getting bad reviews, but I do want to see this underwater movie because I really love horror movies that take place underwater. Like I don't know if I've professed my love for leviathan on here. Um, but like 1989 was like a year for all kinds of monster movies underwater. I'm like, I think our friend Nick UT has mentioned we should look at the What is that other movie star? Six. Yes, Steve Star six. Recommending Deep Star six. Um, and we'll have to take a look at that. It would be kind of cool to do a round of underwater horror movies. I mean, I would throw the visit to even though it's more of a

sci fi, it's kind of, I guess, like a star Trekkie philosophical type. Yeah, scifi movie.

I'm probably I might go to the movies to see underwater because I saw bits of the creature. Looks pretty cool. I just I just like I just like it like that. I mean, and in the self is kind of scary. I mean, there's the dangers of just the natural order of the world and like being underwater underwater is terrifying. You know, at least those depths you got the Well, obviously, um, it's kind of a nature we're talking about. The natural environment is pressurized and could kill you cause the deaths are too extreme. And then you got these mysterious creatures and whatever else on fear, the unknown. I guess it just plays on like the fear of the unknown to the extreme level I revisit Rock the Casbah. I went back and watched that with Bill Murray.

Oh, yeah. You know, I I did. I remember you talking about it. I know it's on like I stumble across the bomb HBO But, uh,

26:09
it's a nice little movie about, like, second
spk_1:
26:11
chances. Oh, man, I'm talking about HBO. I tried. I know you said it was ok even give it a glowing review. But I watched about half of that new Hellboy and I had to shut it off. I just I couldn't like it's It wasn't that it was bad in the sense of like it was so bad. It was unwatchable, but it was very, you know, as far as much shit that was going on a con Fired was boring. Like it. It had too many plates spinning without, like focusing on any one thing too long.

The thing I hated the most is when his I don't know when Professor Broom dies in this one. He's like a ghost. He looks like shit. It's the worst ghost I've ever fucking seen in a movie.

26:55
There's I mean, there's a lot of like it just It was weird. I mean, there was there was some good stuff. I really like the pig creature. I thought, like design and, um and like the prologue, like I was sucked in from the beginning and then just kind of kept going downhill. Like David Harbour is a good actor, but I I think the look was good, but like I don't think he was able to pull off that type of humor. It just it felt off. I don't know, you
spk_0:
27:19
know, it was off. It's one of the things you want to like it, but it just doesn't. All the pieces don't come together. Who knows what's gonna happen from here on? Um, I hear the straw trick thing is gonna be another reboot, which I'm tired of like I wish they would just continue the story of the people in the movies we just had, right, But, you know, whatever

bring cars. It is a K. I think part of it is they can't get those actors back, or at least some of them. So it's like if you can't get the whole crew, then just hit the reset button.
spk_0:
27:52
Yeah, that's interesting. There are some movies that are like that, like the fast in theory is, Take things. If you can't get the ensemble, you can't make a movie. That's why the negotiations for the Marvel stuff must have been pretty intense because you literally need nine actors to get each one of those movies,
spk_1:

right, because the one thing that redhead were born that nobody's ah had to move around, we sent that I'm aware of stroke

going out that he's like one of the hardest actors to work with
spk_1:
28:18
Oh, yeah, it's been known that's been known for a while. Um, like, even even when he was new, he was a dick, like there's a big conflict between him and the director of Ah, American History X

I also here. And don't get pissed at me. I want to say, like if you ever hear this, don't get mad at me for saying I've just heard this and there's nothing. There's no way to found the celebrity rumors or whatever. I also hear Pauly Shore's hard to work with. But, Paulie, if you're out there, I'm not. I said it now, but I'm not saying it. I'm like, I'm not saying it as the source. I'm just saying things. Things have been set, but I'm also rewatching. Pauly Shore's documentary You Stand Alone, where he's like on the comedy tour and young ones, his mom, who was sick in the stores end of her life and what have you So everybody. If you like Polly, you go watch stand alone on Amazon Prime. But I've heard this, but that could be disgruntled, you know, assistant, you know, going on the Twitter boards. So who knows? Anyway, I'm sure those people that hate the binge watchers out there.
