We're going to be introducing a brand new segment, one ofmy personal favorites, called hidden gems, and discussing the Netflix original film Icare a lot, starring Rosamond Pike. As always, don't forget to share, rate, review and subscribe wherever you listen and follow us on social atPod flicks, the letter N and chill. Let's dive in to today's episode.What is going on, everybody? Welcome to another episode of podflicts andchill. As always, I am your host, Andrew, and a happySt Patrick's Day to everybody listening. Yes, it is St Patrick's Day, whichmeans it's Wednesday and I know that I typically release episodes on Monday's but, in the spirit of full disclosure, when I was listening back to theepisode that I recorded to release on Monday, I wasn't happy with how it turnedout. There was a lot of rambling and it wasn't very cohesive inhow it turned out. So I figured I just rerecord tweaks some things andrelease the episode a few days late rather than not give you guys an episodeat all, because my last episode was on March first with Tyler Hickson,where we talked all things Ted Lasso. I still love that show and Istill think everybody should watch it. Anyway, as I said in the INTRO,we have a new format for the show and it's something that I've beenmeaning to do for a while with the podcast, because I want to giveyou guys a show that you want to listen to and I know that itcan be tough listening to a show about the same show or movie for fortyfive minutes. So we're going to switch things up a little bit here andthere. Let me know what you guys think of the new format. Youcan send me a DM on social media at Pod flicks and chill. I'dlove to hear from you guys and I'd love to include segments that you guysare actually interested in listening to. So if you have any ideas for theshow and ways we can improve, let me know. Before we get startedwith the first segment, just a couple of quick announcements, and I promisedto be brief. As you know, Pod flicks and chill is now apart of the pod fix network of podcasts. It's an artist owned network of abunch of different podcasts covering a bunch of different topics, and I hadthe opportunity to sit down and chat with the host of the plantthropology podcast,Mr Vickram Baliga, and he interviewed me for the network podcast pod fix presents. We talked power rangers, we talked a ton of different things. Heasked me a lot about podflicts and chill and we even get into a discussionabout whether or not out a TACO is a sandwich. So be sure tocheck that interview out. You just search pod fix presents wherever you listen,or you can find the link on my twitter. I also recently had aguest segment on the distance nerding podcast. Now this is too cool. Dudesyoung Phil and James, and they basically nerd out on pretty much everything,including Tacos, to bring it full circle. It's a great podcast. They talkDC marvel, wrestling, music, literally whatever it is they're nerding outon. But I'm going to be doing a monthly guest segment on there forall of the streaming stuff that I'm looking forward to every single month. Sobe sure to head on over again. Wherever you listen to podcasts, checkout distance nerding and see if you can spot my segment for them. Butlet's get into this new show format, starting with some streaming news. DcorDave me the news. I gotta bad...

...case loving you. Sorry, folks, that was my inner anti Bernard coming out. Fans of the office willunderstand and appreciate that reference. Now I mentioned this new story in the introof the episode, and that is Disney plus announcing that they surpassed one hundredmillion global paid subscribers to the platform. Now, when they first released inNovember of two thousand and nineteen, their original goal was anywhere between sixty andninety million subscribers by two thousand and twenty four. It's now March of twothousand and twenty one and they've crushed that goal. Netflix, it took themten years to hit one hundred million subscribers. Now, to be fair, don'tsay to be fair hate. When people say to be fair, itsounds like to be fat. For to be fair. To be fair.Netflix was sort of the catalyst that launched the streaming wars and they were thefirst company to do anything like it. Sure they had some early competition withblockbuster and blockbuster could have beaten Netflix. Guys. I don't know if manypeople know that, but blockbuster could have dominated Netflix. They were scared,but they didn't and Netflix is now pretty much the king or queen of streaming. But they they were the first company to try anything like it. Sothey had a lot of you know, let's try this and see if itworks. Okay, this didn't work, how are we going to fix it? And they really had a bunch of trial and error to get to wherethey are now. And I even dive into this a little bit in thepod fix presents interview that I did with Vickrum, and it was you know, netflix carries a lot of debt and they produce a lot of stuff fora lot of different target audiences, versus Walt Disney Company that has a specifictarget audience. They have a family audience. Now additionally they now have like astar wars audience and a comic book Nerd Audience, but that it's alot of family oriented programming and I found a great vulturecom article that talks abouthow Disney was so successful and how they were able to achieve this milestone,and it had a lot to do with the type of programming the putting out, the frequency of programming they're putting out, and I think that speaks to alot of the success that Disney has had early on in just, youknow, eighteen months. I don't even think it's been eighteen months honestly,but it'll be really interesting to see how it continues to pan out over thenext few years. Read Hastings, the CEO of Netflix, has since saidthat he considers Disney plus to be one of his main competitors for Netflix,and in an interview that he gave back in September he had said that histwo main competitors were youtube and sleep. So for the guy to change histune is pretty pretty incredible and I think it speaks to Disney's long term success. So the streaming wars just got a whole lot more interesting. Guys.I'm very excited to see how they come along. But let's move on tothe next story. So I've never covered sports on the podcast before and Ithink you'd know that if you listen to the podcast. But the reason I'mbringing this new story up is because I'm a huge hockey fan. I grewup thirty minutes outside of Philadelphia and I love The Philadelphia Flyers. Even whenthey're losing, I still rep my team.

But anyway, the NHL and ESPNlast week reached a seven year deal agreement with an emphasis on streaming.So what that means is that, starting with the current hockey season, ESPNor ABC, both owned by The Walt Disney Company, will show twenty fivegames out of the full season and half of the playoffs each season and thenof four of the deals seven years they'll show the Stanley Cup finals. SoI don't think it's an exclusive deal, but there will be a lot morehockey on ESPN and ABC. In the past sixteen or so years most ofthose games have gone to other networks, sometimes on Fox, sometimes on localbroadcasting companies like Nesson from the New England area or any NBC owned properties likeUSA Network and things like that. And what's interesting about this deal is thatthere's also going to be a large streaming component of it. So seventy fiveregular season games will stream exclusively on ESPN and Hulu and then ESPN plus isgoing to absorb NHL DOT TV and essentially that's where you'll get all the outof market games. So if you live out in California but you want towatch, you know, a New England game that you can't get for whateverreason. I don't know why I picked New England. I think there's onlylike one team up there, Boston, right, and they're they're pretty prominent. So let's plack. Let's pick Florida instead, the Florida Panthers. Idon't know who likes the Florida Panthers. If you listen to this and youlike the Florida Panthers, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to insult you,but anyw let's say you live out in Calie and you want to watch aFlorida panthers game and it's not on your local TV station, if you haveESPN plus, chances are you'll be able to find the game. So it'spretty neat. Essentially, when you tally up all the games from all theteams in the in the League, there's about one hundred games a season andof those one thousand three hundred regular season games, over one hundred of themwill be shown on ESPN. Most of them on streaming. That's pretty crazy. It's similar. It's a similar type of deal that ESPN has with theUFC right now. A lot of fights you can get on ESPN plus andI think it's just it's a good deal for anybody who's a huge hockey fanwho prefers sports to, you know, fictional series or things like that.You get a lot of bang for your Buck, a lot of hockey,which means a lot of hockey fights. And who knows, I might evenget ESPN plus because of this deal. I don't know, and the termsof the deal weren't really announced or released, but it has been rumored that it'slooking like Disney is going to pay the NHL approximately four hundred million dollarsannually. Now, four hundred million over the course of seven years. IfI've done the math correctly, is close to like two point eight billion dollars. Again, I don't know how my math is. We might want todouble check that, but that's a pretty penny considering that for the ten yeardeal that NBC universal had with the NHL, they got one point nine billion dollars. So that's one point nine billion for ten years, and now you'retalking another billion on top of that from Disney. Disney's got a lot ofmoney, man. You know, pretty, pretty soon everything's going to be ownedby them, maybe even this podcast. What do you think? Pod flicksand chill a proud part of the Walt Disney Company family. If anybody'slistening, if anybody from Disney's listening,...

...wants to throw me money for doingthis podcast, let me know. I'm all ears, I'm open, I'mready for it. Let's do it. But anyway, I'll link the NewYork Times article for this story in the show notes for anybody WHO's interested inchecking it out. Also do the same with the Disney plus article that Icovered right before this. So any news story that I cover I'll put thearticles in the description of the show. You can also find them on myfacebook page. Just search pod flicks and chill. Next Story. So Ireally hope that I don't get a copyright claim for using the marvel audio there. But in this last news story, last week on Friday, Disney plusand Marvel Studios released what I'm assuming is the first episode of a Docu Serieson Disney plus titled Marvel Studios Assembled, and it looks like it's going togo behind the scenes of all of the original series that are coming to Disneyplus. So the first episode was about an hour long and it covered wanddivision and it was really neat. You got a lot of cast and crewinterviews from the director, the show runner writers. You had Randall Park,Elizabeth Olson, Paul bettany Catherine Hunt, like everybody that was involved in theshow. They they had little sound bites and interviews from it was really coolto see how the classic visual effects from the s shows like bewitched and Idream of genie and things like that, how they were incorporated into the show. They filmed the first episode in front of a live studio audience, whichI think was awesome. So it's really cool to see the behind the scenesof how they did that and for me it was really reminiscent of watching thefresh prince of Bel Air Reunion documentary on Hbo Max and they had a lotof behind the scenes footage of the tapings of the shows and it was coolthat sort of experience that you know, that's a that's a long forgotten,not necessarily forgotten, but they just don't do it anymore. They don't dolive tapings of shows anymore and it was really cool to see that something likethat is now prominent in this generation and I think it's going to inspire alot of, you know, TV watchers and kids who want to get involvedin production. It's going to inspire them to, you know, keep pushingboundaries like marvel's been doing. But it was it was a really fun documentary. You know, Paul bettany talks about his fake butt that he has towear as vision. They talk costumes. One of the cool segments that Ireally enjoyed was the composition segments of the documentary where they sat down and theytalked with the musicians who helped compose the various theme songs. It was thesame two people and they didn't expressly say I don't think, but they playedthe clips of all the theme songs and honestly, I think these two itwas a husband wife team, I'm pretty sure. I'm pretty sure they sangall of the different theme songs to so it was really cool to see howthey picked out the genres, how they developed the theme for the different decadesof the show. It was a nice, fun documentary to watch to give youyour marvel fix until Falcon and the winter soldier comes out in just twodays actually, because I'm I'm hoping that this does get released today, onWednesday. So that means Falcon Winter soldier is out in two days and JusticeLeague Snyder cut is out tomorrow. I...

...just ran a poll on my twitterto see who was excited more for which one and surprisingly it got like overtwenty votes and most people were more excited for Snider Cut, which is prettysurprising. I think Falcon winter soldiers going to be pretty awesome. I don'tthink we're going to see I don't think we're going to see cap sam orCap Bucky in this one, though. They're probably either save that for afeature film or for a season two. And if you want to hear mythoughts on season two, head on over to the distance nerding podcast and listento my monthly segment over there. But that wraps up the news segment again. If you guys like this streaming news segment and you want more of itevery episode, send me a Dm let me know. You can find meon social at Pod flicks, the letter N and chill. So this nextsegment is called hidden gems and it's probably going to be one of my favoritesegments moving forward in the PODCAST, and we've already touched on the fact thatthere are so many streaming platforms out there was so much original content. That'sthe whole purpose of this show is to help you guys sort of navigate theseplatforms and navigate this content and help you find something that you're going to enjoywatching. But that said, there is a lot of content that can bemissed out there, right. I mean, as I've said before, Netflix spendsbillions of dollars on content and they produce whatever they want and they justsort of had this mentality of throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticksright. So you might miss a potential really good series or really good film. And today we're going to get into two hidden gems that Netflix hid fromme for over a year until they started, until the algorithm started suggesting it tome, and that is first we're going to start with the Netflix seriesthe spy, starring Sasha Baron Cohen and directed by and written by Gideon Rath. Now, Gideon Raff you may recognize as the CO creator and executive producerof the, I think, stars series homeland, and the spy focuses onSasha Baron Cohen's character, Ellie Cohen, who was a real life spy forthe Israeli government in the s and in the s he infiltrated the Syrian governmentand started giving intelligence to the Israeli government to help sort of diffuse and endthe war between the two countries. Now it's based on real life events butof course dramatized a little bit for Hollywood. But what I love about the storyis the fact that even fifty years later, in the two thousand andten s, the the actions that Ellie Cohen, the real life person,took, even though not many of them are known, and for the seriesthey're they're somewhat speculated, those actions still had an effect on his country andon the country of Syria. I don't want to get into spoiler territory forthis show because I want you to enjoy it as I did. It's onlysix episodes long, but it's a great series that you can really see thethe love and the care that Gideon has for his homeland. He is Israeliborn and I think that's what helps the show carry such an emotional weight.Similarly, the Netflix film the Red Sea diving resort, also by Gideon Raft. That was released in July of two...

...thousand and nineteen. The spy wasreleased in September of two thousand and nineteen and I didn't get recommended to watchthem until, you know, October of two thousand and twenty, so itwas over a year. But the Red Sea diving resort focuses on a groupof people led by Chris Evans character and I think the guy's name was jake, but it's a group of people who are trying to smuggle a bunch ofEthiopian Jewish refugees out of Syria into the promised land. And again it suchcare was taken in telling the story, which was another true life story,and it's called the Red Sea diving resort because this group of people basically they'rethey're like secret agents right to a certain extent, but they or missionaries,you know, whatever they are, they sort of wind up accidentally running atourist attraction in Syria to help smuggle these refugees out. It's a really fascinatingstory. It really, you know, pulls you into it and I lovedit. It was such a great film. You know, it had Chris Evans, Greg Kenny are a couple other people that I recognized that I'm blankingon the names right now. I'm just spitball in these plots for you guysoff the top of my head. So I didn't do too much prep forthem. But I think both both stories are so worth watching and so worthchecking out just to give you a different, you know, world perspective. Again. They're dramatized for Hollywood, sure, but they're based on real life eventsand they made me actually do a little bit more research into the eventsthat they were based off of. But the Red Sea diving resort and thespy, both on Netflix, both by Gideon Grab Gideon Rath. Highly recommendchecking them out and if you guys have a hidden gem that you think Ishould talk about on the show, send me a DM on social media.You can follow me at Pod flicks, the letter n and chill, oryou can head on over to pod flicks and chillcom tap the microphone button inthe bottom right hand quarter and record a voice message letting me know what yourfavorite hidden gem is, what streaming platform it's on and why you think it'sa worthwhile hidden gem that people should check out. You Send me a voicemessage on the website and I promise I will play it for the podcast inthe next segment. I'm not getting here, guys. I want to take listenersubmissions. So if you guys, have a hidden gem that you thinkis worthwhile, that's an original all streaming platform show or film, send itmy way. I'll play the clip on the next segment of the podcast.And, yeah, I want to hear from you, guys. I'm excited, so send it my way. POD flicks and Chilcom or you can followme on social media APP Pod flicks, the letter N and chill welcome.Okay, so this sound bite requires a little bit of a story. Obviouslywe're getting into the main part of the podcast here, hence main event,and when I searched for a sound bite, because I wanted, you know,like a wrestling announcer of me, like I now, for the amazingevent, but I couldn't find one.

What I did find was a trailerfor a Netflix film called the main event. It came out last year. Iknow nothing about it other than the trailer that I watched, and it'sessentially a film about a young boy who gets picked on at school by somebullies and while he's being chased by the bullies one day he finds a luchadormask that, when he puts it on, it gives him super speed and superstrength. It's essentially like Mike but with wrestling. So he puts themask on to sort become, you know, his school's vigilante and help stand upto the bullies for the nerd population. But then he also enters into awrestling tournament to become the next wwe superstar. So there's I'm sure there'ssome cameos by some big named WWe people. I'm not a wrestling fan, soI don't know, but the trailer looked pretty interesting and in watching itI finally got to the to the end of the trailer where that sound bitecame from. So in a way I still did get the wrestling announcer goingwelcome, so that maybe an event. It's just, you know, froma netflix movie. So we're really tying things together today on the podcast andI'm all about it. Anyway. As I said in the INTRO, we'retalking today about the Netflix film I care a lot, starring Rosamond Pike andPeter dinklage. Now originally. When I was doing the research for this episode, I saw that the film was originally releasing Canada in two thousand and twenty, but it didn't come to Netflix until February nineteen of two thousand and twentyone, so it did just come out about a month ago. It's approximatelytwo hours long and at the time of this recording, or I should sayat the time when I took my notes, it was a six point two outof ten on IMDB, around an eighty percent on the rotten tomato tomatometer, but the audience score on rotten tomatoes was only thirty six percent.So a lot of audience members voted it rotten, and we'll get into why, because I think the the story that the film tries to portray is aserious story that should be talked about, but it may have missed the markin certain areas. But you know, we'll talk about that and I wantto hear from you guys about it as well if you've seen them film.So Rosamond Pike plays a character named Marla Grayson, who is a con woman. She's a state appointed Guardian that gets assigned elderly people who are deemed nolonger fit to care for or take care of themselves. But what she doesis, when she gets these clients, she immediately puts them into a nursinghome that she's in cohoots with the owner of. So she starts drugging thesepeople up, gets, you know, taking their cell phone, if theyhave kids, they're not able to see their kids, the the visitation rightsget revoked, all that sort of stuff, and she goes in and she seizescontrol of their estates, start selling off their assets, making a tonof money off of these elderly people's lives. She's a really hateable character and that, I think a lot was a lot of the problem that people hadwith the film is that there's not really any likable characters, except for maybethe elderly people that she's wrongfully putting in these homes. Because what she's alsodoing is working with a doctor who's sort...

...of unethically saying, Hey, youknow these elderly people, we can get away with doing it to them.So then they bring it to the court system, the court system of pointsMarla, and Marla then takes advantage of her clients. Really messed up infact. You know, you see like a shot in her office of awhiteboard with like all these pictures of her clients and there's like a ton ofthem and it's it's a messed up story and it's a messed up plot,but a lot of it is based in fact. There is a lot of, you know, legal corruption going on in in our country, especially whenit comes to the elderly population. There's a lot of people being taken advantageof throughout the country and in fact, when I was explaining the plot ofthis film to hand up, because, as you guys know, Hannah doesnot watch does not watch TV or movies, it's a real project. I'm surprisedwe got her through the MANDALORIAN. But anyway, when I was explainingthe plot of this film to Hannah, she actually got really, really madbecause a former neighbor of her parents got taken advantage of in a very similarsort of way. She had a gentleman who was trying to hunt on herproperty because, you know, she owned like a ton of land, andwhen she tried to confront them about it, the guy, you know, tookher to court and basically got her, I think, put in a nursinghome. He wound up with control of her property and it was justa really messed up situation and it's sort of hit her close to home.So the the point is this happens. You know, it might seem likea plot dreamed up by Hollywood, but it happens and it's so messed upthat it does. So. So we have MARLA Grayson, who's, youknow, being a real d bag to all these old people and then shetakes advantage, she and the doctor take advantage of a woman named Jennifer Peterson, playing by Diane Waist, and the only reason I know how to pronounceas because I just saw a Brooklyn nine cold open, which I've still yetto see that show. I got a lot of people telling me I needto watch it, and I think I've I'm finally convinced that I'm going tostart watching it. But anyway, Jennifer Peterson, Marla takes her character intoa nursing home and, you know, goes through the whole process and thenwe find out that Jennifer Peterson is not actually Jennifer Peterson, but she isthe mother of a Russian mob boss that has is basically in hiding because herson, played by Peter dinklage, faked his death and is trying to laylow and avoid, you know, avoid getting found out by his crime partnersor whatever. Anyway, it's a really absurd plot and I think that's wherethe dark comedy comes from. It's an absurb it's an absurd plot. Youknow, you have Peter dinklage playing a rough and rowdy mob boss for theRussian mob, but he enjoys, you know, green smoothies and doing gymnasticsworkouts. You know, there's a scene where we walk into his like penthouseoffice or whatever it is and he's hanging from a couple of gymnastics rings.It is in his gym. Really Bizarre. You know, there's quite a fewscenes where he's like eating chocolate ECLAIRE's or whatever. But both characters arevery hateable. You have, you know, Marla Grayson, who's taking advantage ofall these elderly people, and then you have a Russian mob boss.You don't want either person to win,...

...but there at odds with each otherthroughout the, you know, pretty much the second and third acts of themovie. So you know, neither one is a is a likable character thatyou want to win. And I'm not even going to dive into the endingof the movie. If you want to watch it you can, but itis sort of a an dissatisfying ending all around. Maybe not, maybe notfor some people, you know, who want to see Marla get what's comingto her. Hey, maybe they're satisfied with the ending, but it didseem to end pretty abruptly in my opinion. The movie itself was directed by JayBlakeson, who I did some research on, and the only notable thingI could find from him was an HBO series called Gunpowder, which I actuallywatched the first episode of. There's only three episodes of it, but itwas a it was a short miniseries starring Kit Harrington back in two thousand andseventeen and it was really about the gunpowder trees and plot of London in,you know, back in the day, with Guy Fawks and all that.You know, if you've watched V for Vent Daddy, you know what I'mtalking about. But yeah, so the movie was directed by him and andhe had some flak for for the story he was trying to tell and howit pretty much missed the mark because again, you don't have any likable characters inthe main protagonist role, as it were. Now I will say RosamondPike did win a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Marla Grayson in this film, and I think that's great. She looked phenomenal in her like bright redpoofy dress and it actually kind of seemed like she was playing the character ofMarla Grayson in that outfit, because one thing that I took away from thisfilm, both from the trailer and while watching it, was the color scheme. Everything was so bright. You know, marlow wears these bright red and yellowoutfits and you know Jennifer's house that that Marla seizes and takes control ofis its bright, bright blue color. You know, we see Peter dinklageis character in in a bake shop, a bakery that's like really insanely bright, and then you get a scene where where Peter dinklage, his character's nameis Roman, Roman, kidnaps MARLA and tries to threaten her and the sceneis portrayed against this red lit construction site. Like the entire backdrop of the sceneis just bright red and it really draws your attention to a lot ofdifferent parts in the film. And again, when I was doing episode prep,I found a New York Times article where he talks about Jay blakes andtalks about his different influences for the film and specifically the color of the film, and that was drawn on a lot by various Belgium and American photographers andthey the article showed one photograph that was like just a regular alley, astreet going through an alley and there's a woman walking down the sidewalk with abright red code on and the street lines were bright yellow, but everything elsewas just kind of dull and boring, but your eye gets drawn to thebright areas of the of the picture and that was very similar to the entiretone of the film. And there was a quote in the article that Ithink really stuck out that Jay blakes and said during a video interview, whichit was, our world is colorful. We just don't see it because wedon't stop and look at it very much. And it's sort of the the visualversion of the phrase stop and smell...

...the roses. Right, there isso much beauty in the world. Of course, not right now, asI'm looking outside, it's very dark and overcast and ikey right, but there'splenty of beautiful things in the world, but we tend so much as asociety and as individuals to focus on the negativity and the bad things that wedon't acknowledge the beauty just in in terms of a simple color. You know, we don't stop to look at a color and say hey, that's reallypretty, like there's a lot of beautiful things out there. So I thinkthat was probably an underlying message of the film or, you know, intendedmessage, but I it might not have hit the mark with a lot ofviewers because of just the very you know, it's a very powerful thing to tryto talk about, is the corruption and elder elderly abuse, which isessentially what was going on in the film, and it's a very real thing thathappens today the world. But but yeah, that's you know, I'lllink the New York Times article in the show notes as well. In termsof my rating of the movie, a few a few podcast episodes ago,like back back before the new year, back before the break, I startedto try to implement some chill points in terms of how I rated the filmand I think we're going to re establish that starting with this new format.We're going to re establish the chill points. So I'm going to go ahead andgive this like three, two, three and a half somewhere in there. Three, two, three and a half chill points. Again, Ireally liked the visual effects in the film, the the color everything. I thinkthe soundtrack, from memory, was pretty decent, but the character developmentcould have been a little bit more fleshed out, especially for for Peter dinklage'scharacter. I felt that he was very satirical, and he did. Hewasn't as threatening to me as I would have liked. He just seemed likea pushover sort of, you know, Oh, you're not a real mobboss, your farcical. So so that's why I'm not rating it any higherthan that. Yeah, I don't know. That's that's where I stand on thatmovie. It was a good movie. It was I enjoyed watching it.I don't regret the two hours I spent watching it, but I canunderstand where other audience members and where other critics are coming from saying that themovie missed the mark. But let me know what you guys thought of themovie. Is My chill point rating accurate or does it deserve more or less? Again, follow me on social and let me know over there at podflicks, the letter n and chill, and there is the Oscars wrap upmusic. So that means this is my q to start finishing up the episode.
