okay? Yeah. So they keep defying the whole The whole world right now is being defined by Are you essential? We're not essential, right? Yeah, like pretty much everything. And it's funny you like if 11 is considered essential or not. But I was thinking, like, you know, we were watched these movies, and it's like we're doing like, a double feature. Folks were doing like this thing where we're talking about trended Basan, which is like viral zombie outbreak. And then black death was just like their paranoia surrounding, you know, the black plague in the 1300. What they both have in common is essentially, it is groups of essential people

spk_2:   0:44
crack open a cold box of wine or pour something cold on ice because it's

spk_1:   0:50
the binge watchers podcast

spk_0:   1:17
look, I was thinking about, like, you know, in trying to Basan that it's like a government response, right? But it's like everybody's, uh so you see, like the soldiers And, you know, at one point, like the make, Eric was talking to his friend, the cop on the phone. And then, like, I guess you could even consider like a transit authority like essential personnel, I'm like If you're essential, you are. You're screwed. You mean, if you're cold, Thio act on something, You're definitely you're definitely in harm's way. Yeah, folks stick with us because we're doing a double feature of this episode. As I said, we're covering training Basan and Black Death. And actually, I don't know if you saw this, but one of the Basan actors. He's like a green American, but his name is It's an f. If I butcher this, I'm sorry if we're out there, I don't mean to break any hearts, but I think it's, um Magadan Sook. And that's actually Donley. Who's gonna be in the Marvel Universe movie? The eternal is he's gonna play Gilgamesh, but he's the the tough, kind of like blue collar rough around the edges Guy. That's the, uh, one

spk_2:   2:30
of the

spk_0:   2:32
entering Basan folks, is this is this guy was like, Yeah, kind of like he'd be like your friend at the bar, something he'd be like a drinking buddy or something is like his attitude. Like, you know, the average guy like,

spk_2:   2:44
yeah. Is he the? Is he the guy with the pregnant wife? Yeah, yeah, yeah. He's the heart of that movie. Dude, What's that? I said For me, he was the heart of the movie.

spk_0:   2:54
Oh, yeah, he does. He does such a good job. He actually won. Like, I guess, Like, um, I don't know where these awards are, but there's like some Korean awards and there's another award somewhere, Agent. It's kind of like sounded kind of the award, but it's like a film award, and I guess it would be like their version of their country's awards. I don't know, but he's like, uh, has won some awards for whatever you know is Dave said, like, If you're looking for, like, a movie with a little bit of heart, well, he's it for the trained of a song, you know, like, yeah, he's a pretty legit dude And you look you definitely by his character being pretty solid, you know? Um, well, he's doomed, like, you know, he's doing. You know why? Because, like, he's just like, uh again, if we're talking about a central essentials, it's like, uh, let the guys in the other movie there nights on a mission, and you're like, Okay, well, the mission has, like, a high chance of like imminent death you don't you don't like. Their mission is to go into the lines then so to speak. And you know, there, you know you don't They're not coming back from this and like the same with this guy. Like he's so talented because you're like, Okay, he's kind of brawny and he's got a little bit more of like is a rolled his sleeves attitude. You're like, Oh, man, what you just know. You just know from from the beginning you're just like, Oh, this guy

spk_2:   4:20
like I don't have a lot of,

spk_0:   4:22
you know when it's coming. But it's no, He's too good to survive the move, you know? So

spk_2:   4:27
he's also like, he just that the character, I mean, And this is where, like, you can tell a good performance, no matter of the language, because, like, it just stuck out to me. Um, he don't he I would not be surprised if I found out later on he was like the South Korean rock like I don't know, he seemed to have a lot of

spk_0:   4:45
like Dwayne Johnson. Big dick energies, what you're saying just like he's like this guy, like everything right?

spk_2:   4:53
I guess I just meant like he had a lot of charisma, like, I he I don't know. He was like I said, he made the movie for me. Uh, meanwhile, the whole movie is great, but his character, um, was, I don't know, maybe it's just because he's my favorite. All right,

spk_0:   5:07
So let's tell people what? Well, I guess we skipped around. I was gonna say like, uh, the movie new stuff. But we were just kind of turned turn to be sorry. So I guess we'll visit past movie news. So a man and his estranged daughter and other passengers become trapped on a speeding train during a zombie outbreak in South Korea. That's basically the plot in a nutshell. And I'm not really I would say, like the TV Guide version of Of it is like or the tackling is like, not enough to do it justice because, like you said, all right, why don't even know what you said? I forgot. But I can

spk_2:   5:47
sure,

spk_0:   5:48
backwards. But like I'm basically just saying like it's more than his heart. It's actually this well done, like, uh, it could have easily fallen toe like all the traps of a zombie movie you know, it could have been like every other zombie movie, right? Yeah. Um, there's always a little bit something different there. The 21st century version of zombies which move really fast and the the infection spreads like a wildfire, you know?

spk_2:   6:15
Yeah,

spk_0:   6:15
quickly, but it doesn't go job of, like the old George Romero style where you hear about the infection kind of luck in the background. Like if you go back and watch that movie like there's like news reports and the reports and so what? People are aware of the infection, but it's just kind of like it's in the background, and then all of a sudden, it's It's like everywhere, and, uh, I think like this. This one is just like this One lady is infected and walks into the train right? And then bites the lady who works on the train. Isn't that how it starts?

spk_2:   6:45
Um, I believe

spk_0:   6:49
and said something like that. Um, but the main characters, like disassociated like executive and, uh, I don't know. He's like going through a custody battle with his ex wife, but then he wants the daughter for her birthday, but she wants to see the mother. So be like what? He breaks down and he's gonna take the daughter to where the mom lives, right in another city or something.

spk_2:   7:11
Something like that.

spk_0:   7:13
And, uh, yeah, so that they get on a train when all this stuff is starting to go down. And then they're like they try to, like, segregate part of the train or whatever and then, like, people are trying to separate themselves from the infected. And then you've got, like, another executive on the train who's like panicking, right? He's like the guy that, like wood in my imagination, be the guy that looks scrubs his hands until they fall off with soap and water. If they told him he could save his life by Washington hands, you know, I'm talking about like, the ready, weaselly, like jerk executive guy who's like, you know, really builds them up into a fever and gets everybody were, like, kind of working against each other. And

spk_2:   7:56
yeah, for sure.

spk_0:   7:57
Yeah, And then, like spoiler alert, go ahead a couple minutes like he's the jerk that gets, like 45 people killed. When you find when you get to the climax of the movie,

spk_2:   8:07
right Yeah. Our protagonist kind of started off like him. Almost. I mean, he because he had that inside tip of like like, Oh, go to, ah, this corner of the station. And i'll, uh, I'll get you have people I don't get you through. So you know it.

spk_0:   8:28
You got some clout or whatever. Like he's like an aristocrat, right?

spk_2:   8:32
Yeah. I had connections,

spk_0:   8:37
You know, the social system or life in the city there, whatever, or or South Korea how it works. But, yeah, he basically calls in a favor what they just said in, uh and, um, you know, a police body or some things like, Yeah, I go to this one station, but don't go through the main exit where everybody else is going to try toe, you know, escape the quarantine zone or whatever of survivors. I'm over here and I'll send like a jeep with my two guys in. My detectives will pick you up on your daughter will escort you out of the city or whatever. So and backfires, it backfires big time. I mean, the other side of the station is completely like mob with soldiers, right? So and then like and then they're like That was like, um actually, one of my favorite scenes was the escalator, like everybody had it exited the train and they're trying to leave the station and they think they've like, like, managed to escape the outbreak and then boom like, No, forget it, like their version of the National Guard is completely infected. And then it's like bodies air following on top of each other as they try to assess the humans, try to escape the infected and get back to the train in time. And the train guys like, Oh, come and go to the station know that stations that come and go to that station know that stations out. And he's like, Well, can I get the impression from, like the train engineer? He's basically saying over the conductor, He's basically like trying to say like, Well, eventually we're gonna run out of train tracks like Where do you want me to park this train? And like what city is saying? Bring these people to you? But I'm It's pretty fascinating, Like, uh, well, like you said, he's kind of a piece of shit. The main character is kind of a jerk who like actually over the course of the movie, and this is a great journey. If you think about it, like if you mean a main character that really, like isn't worth your time But then, like, wins you over for like, kind of grows into being like a protagonist is kind of interesting.

spk_2:   10:22
Yeah. I mean, he has the biggest. He has a big ark. Big change.

spk_0:   10:28
Yeah, that's true, because you kind of look a cold fish, right? And then he lets his guard down and isn't motive. But of course, like I mean, is it least three other characters that, you know make a sacrifice for him to kind of warm up That way, though, you don't mean yeah. Way to do that. We both like like, uh, it was kind of like I kind of like if you were thinking about, like, ah, high school varsity team or something. And it was like a was it like a baseball team wasn't like

spk_2:   11:00
a group

spk_0:   11:01
of young kids that were all. Like what? On something teen. But essentially, that one guy, like, organized everybody and then it was kind of like he was trying to could, like, have some kind of common ground with the main character. And then they finally connected on just the fact that they were trying to protect the unborn baby. And then also the little girl that was there, right? One

spk_2:   11:23
had a

spk_0:   11:23
daughter and one was about to have a son. So they were working together on the train and then the other younger guys. Motivation was, I think his girlfriend was like the cheerleader, this little high school baseball team or something. Yeah, I mean, how incredible is it when they're, like doing? They're duct taping their arms because they notice that, like these things were kind of bite everybody. So it's like, Don't take our arms and little homemade like, you know, like what? They basically slapped together this little thing, and that's how they want. I think it's cool about the movies. They have nothing to fight the zombies with

spk_2:   11:58
right, like they were fortunate enough to be a have a baseball team around for bats. But that's like they're

spk_0:   12:03
scrapping essentially with themselves, like the you know these things, things, air eating them and there's a there's zombies technically, but it's almost like you have something you want to get moving you just by calling the monster of what it is. Kind of like the tracks from how good it is, you know, like, Well, I'm just saying there's on these good people with a shrug and be like goats. I've seen all the zombie movies. Like, Why should I like? I care? But they let go of your throats. They like, attack there. I noticed they, like, go for your throat in this movie. Almost like vampires. But we already mentioned they move fast. Um, they have this weird light, which I thought was interesting.

spk_2:   12:42
Yeah, they created some new rules in this movie that I thought were actually pretty interesting. It like it didn't fill. Um oh, no, it didn't feel like they just pulled it out of their head. That really kind of thought about it. They introduced a few new rules, like, um, yeah, there in the darkness, they or they can't see you there. Must, like t rexes or dinosaurs. Like if they can't see you, they don't come after you, Um, or if they're distracted. Um, I would at what other new rules that I'm trying to think. What other new rules that he created with this one. Uh,

spk_0:   13:18
I'll get back to the new rules, but you're talking about distractions. We'll get back to our discussion about Hassan in a minute, But first I want to go to award from our sponsors tonight, responsive by my bookie, sports have come to a screeching hope with basketball bench and pictures off the mound.

Well, obviously, we know that there is very few movies that use the fast acting zombies, right? Like that. Really popular with Donna Dead roommate. Um

spk_2:   15:06
uh, with way. 20 eight days later, the 1st 1 was returning the living dead, actually, although,

spk_0:   15:16
yeah, O t l d. Um, which they've covered. If you guys go back and pull up the classics, we get a halfway around a couple years ago where we did like every night for 30 days in a row, Dave has one of the best return the living dead reviews the thing I've ever heard as faras podcaster concern. Anyway, um, you know what? Since I guess if I mentioned our greatest hits, I gotta drop a link, right? So that will be in

spk_2:   15:43
the outcast

spk_0:   15:43
notes for people to listen to. Um, that's pretty sweet. And I guess that might have been Is that the movie that set the stage for that? Do you think?

spk_2:   15:54
I think so. I mean it. They were Certainly the 1st 1 was the 1st 1 to have running zombies, and it also had talking's zombies, although I'm not sure if that's the 1st 1 to do that.

spk_0:   16:05
Almost guarantee that the director friend of Hassan has seen, like Night of the Living Dead. Probably that he seemed e mean. He seemed to incorporate certain things you said,

spk_2:   16:16
so he definitely Well, the thing I liked about this movie was, you know, like he said it took from it seems to take the best parts of every zombie movie even took the best part of a shitty zombie movie which was World War Hath God cannot talk. Yeah, because the the I, first of all, I don't like World War Z. I think it's a fucking boring movie. But it did have a cool concept of the rising or stacking zombies. Um, in this movie kind of took that. I won't say to the next level, but it utilized it really well for this movie, like when they're running at you, if they fall over, they just keep coming at you with a pile of one another. Yeah,

spk_0:   16:57
If the pilot is kind of cool, they're kind of look looking, like answer like, uh, just like, rabid animals that have no course of direction, you know? I mean, there is reacting to things. The very thing that this one sets out is like something about when they're in the dark that don't know where they are. They like they can't find you. I was like, Whoa, what were reversal of the rules? Because, like, you wouldn't think they would be able to find you in the day. You could be like, the opposite, but yeah, we're so you wonder if they're blind and they were lying on just, like, sound or like, movement or smelling people. I don't know what it is, but it seems like sound really is triggering zombies in this movie.

spk_2:   17:35
Yeah, because they have to be super quiet.

spk_0:   17:37
Homeless guy gets on the train, is trying to survive in there. Remember, when they're they're climbing over like all the the seats in the car, and he steps on like a coke can or whatever, and they all come out. Yeah, yeah, that's a really intense scene. Folks like they're sneaking through the train cars waiting for it to be dark and the tunnel so they can get by, like a horde of zombies to get the car that's safe with the rest of the humans. And so they're climbing over things and, uh, try not to make a sound. It's a pretty intense sequence. Anyway, I was reading that they were gonna do a sequel called Peninsula, and the director was saying he was gonna be like Man Max. Plus, Akira is like the inspiration for this post apocalyptic version of what happens to the world after the event

spk_2:   18:21
Cheese and

spk_0:   18:21
Give a song, but was supposed to premiere at Cannes Film Festival. But they can't obviously now because, like the world being locked down and everything going through, who knows what they're gonna do. I don't know, like, uh, but they said it's a bigger budget. It looks more ambitious, Which is kind of weird when you hear that when they say bigger budget more ambitious, it's like they're gonna change the style. And sometimes they ruin Sequels that way. But they were saying, like, you know, training Hassan's a high concept film with the narrow space Where's Peninsula was gonna like broaden the turns out with a wider scope. But, um, you know, we had heard that the sequel is gonna be about a soldier you managed to escape. You know, the zombie invested. South Korea is on a mission back into Korea to retrieve some valuable, but his return trip gets complicated at her after he meets like non infected survivors who are stuck and they need help. But it's supposed to take place, like years after training in the song. But again, like saying universe distinct characters, right? So not really. I mean, folks, we warned you at the beginning that you're gonna get your heart broken so you shouldn't expect to see any of the characters and trained to Hassan in the sequel. You know, we'll just leave it That without having to go into details, right? Like I'm not gonna say who gets off the train and who doesn't on. And then, uh, I guess, like the sequel, they took 60 days to shoot it. So it sounds like a pretty big movie like,

spk_2:   19:48
Yeah, I'm looking forward to it now.

spk_0:   19:51
Yeah, it looks pretty cool. Like I said, it's drawing inspiration from Mad Max and Fury Road. All that like, um, no. Comparing it to life apocalyptic like mango, which is like an May stuff, but in the book conflict for him. Great. You know, I mean, who knows it? It could be something interesting. And I know Dave said that, uh, we've, you know, we've really celebrate attorney Basan, which is fair. Um, but it's double features. Now. We're gonna talk about black death, which, um, takes place during the pneumonic plague in the 14th century in England. There's ah, young Monk. His name is Osmond. It's actually Eddie Redmayne. Hey, gets recruited by this guy. An old wreck I saw him being. There's a group of knights. They go into the marshes there looking for this mystery village where they've heard rumors that necromancer is bringing people back from the dead and the villages plague free and until because of sorcery. So they go toe look and look awesome is the guy that's got a like, be their guide. But this this young monk, whatever is like, you know, um, yeah, well, you have ulterior motives because he's hooking up with a young lady in his own village, or like outside of the monastery, wherever they are and but don't know, like, you know, narrowly avoiding the plague. And I think like the first time it happens, you see, like one of their one of the knights is infected with him like the 1st 10 minutes of the movie or something. But they're surrounded by it like everybody is either sick or dying in this movie or being accused of witchcraft, right? And, um, I mean, I guess I could say Like when it came out, did you hear about a movie called up Season of the Witch they came out with?

spk_2:   21:32
Yeah, Nicolas Cage Movie. Yeah,

spk_0:   21:34
Nicolas Cage and Pearlman and basically season of the witch is more like an action movie? This one's more look up. Pretty dismal horror film, right? This one's kind of, um what ratchets up like the gruesomeness and and like, torture. Look, you go on the quest of the Knights, but you're like, I don't know. I don't think you get a sense that it's gonna end badly. You kind of I think you don't know where it's gonna go on the other one. It's obvious that magic Israel look in this one, it's more like hysteria, right? But I know the other one didn't do that well, so it didn't really like it came out before Black Death. I think season which came out first, and people are like and whatever lukewarm about it in the Black Death came out and they're like, It's gonna be just like the other one. But, um, you know, it shows you like painful infections and pitiless death. It spread through like, hysterical panic. And then it's like you're kind of opposed with these two forces, like these really like heretical fanatics, that Aaron a delay. I guess they're Satan. This at the village that they find maybe like, um, the definitely Christians with them, like the other opposite extreme is the nights who's so fiercely believe in Christ that they're almost like hot right? Talk about absolution had been addiction and all this stuff. And then, you know, they, um, encounter What's your name? Chorus? Van Hatton, who's like one of the actors who played Ah, which in game of Thrones, of all things. And she's kind of like running this village. And the whole movie is really setting you up for it to be, like torture, porn. Like, once these guys get captured, that's it. They're going to get fucked up. Um, but each night has, like, a personality. They have cool names like Wolf, Stein and Griff. You know why? And so you're kind of like, Oh, man, it's like he man and his friends on a little adventure in the Skeletons Castle, are you with me? But, uh, it's very brutal. Um, but I guess you could tell me why you don't like it And then, But if you do have a favorite of the knights like if there was one of you you liked, then I'd like to hear if you pick the favorite. That's the game I thought we could play. It's like, Well, did you like like, I mean, obviously like the friend on the train. But what do you think of the group of knights and following this story like, what do you think?

Um, nothing really stuck out for this movie for me. I know you. I know you like it. It's fine that it just I don't know. I can't tell you because nobody stuck out to me. I mean, I remember Sean Bean. Maybe just cause I know shall being, um But

spk_0:   24:15
this will be just like you.

spk_2:   24:19
Well, I'm headed to

spk_0:   24:20
say, but like I said, every guy's tortured in this movie

spk_2:   24:24
that will his, uh Well, I guess spoiler alert you are, You know, he Sean being gets John being like he does like in every movie gets killed. But, I mean,

spk_0:   24:35
that's like an internet mean folks like, uh, Sean being gets the Sean being treatment in every movie is basically what you're saying.

spk_2:   24:42
Yeah. I don't know. Uh, I don't know how he dies in every movie, but I wager that this is his most gruesome death. Yeah, actually, kudos to his death scene because that that's the one thing that stuck with me The

spk_0:   24:55
most brutal thing on the movie. And like YouTube ruins it like there's clips from this movie, and that's like one of the five clips look Okay, well, you pretty much good. You don't mean what's the point of writing the movie out for 90 minutes? If you go right to the climax, you give away all the good stuff, you know? I mean, it's like the

spk_2:   25:12
b

spk_0:   25:13
the money shot of the whole moving and again, yeah, it kind of ventures into torture porn. Like I said, the nights get captured. It's about two extremes, like they believe in God and the other people believe in the devil, and they think the devil is protecting them from the plague. And the other people are convinced that it's witchcraft and spending, you know? I mean, there's like a lot of misinformation is being spread around like she only what that feels like people like, you know, completely given into mass hysteria. You know, um and then what happens? And in this movie, you know, nice get captured in the are like some infighting to like, clearly something that don't get along. But to stand up for me is on John Lynch, who's like this British actor he plays like the second in command. He's the guy that kind of like cares when each one of them is getting killed, like he really takes it personally. Uh, is he as likable as the best friend in the train movie? No, he's not as cuddly like, but he He's an interesting character, and, um and he's one of the few people that gets out of this pit at the end of the movie. You know, um, what kind of socks they're soaked in water pit, just waiting to be tortured, you know, or sacrifice. As as the case may be, her look, you can watch, you know, Black Death on to be and traded. Hassan is popping up like you get it for, like, two books on Amazon. I think it's also one.

spk_2:   26:48
Definitely on Netflix Nestle

spk_0:   26:51
recently. So is there

spk_2:   26:52
Think it's even available on voodoo for on their free version? All right. Oh, yeah. So

spk_0:   26:59
I think that's how I watched it like you free with ads.

spk_2:   27:04
But if you got the Netflix, you might as well watch it on Netflix.

spk_0:   27:06
Yeah, so were leaning full four folks into, like, uh, we're gonna be watching some animal movies and we have a whole list to go into. It's like, um, like our animation April stuff. We're gonna cover hits like Wicked City. We're gonna die Vinto Ninja Scroll. We have some other things. Like dead leaves, Um, lots of enemy movies. Dave is actually gonna basically be dipping his toes in this new water.

spk_2:   27:35
Yeah, I watched a handful. What's that? I said, I've only seen a handful on it. Sze not I'm kind of looking forward to it because it's kind of nice to get out of my comfort zone and try something needle. Um

spk_0:   27:50
um, Dave said he found ninja scroll on Hulu and I was actually watching it like, 1/2 hour tonight and it's the sub version. So that's cool, cause you're listening to the original, you know, Japanese dialogue and then the subtitles. But the subtitles were not as funny as the like early English dub, because you know how they try to rush these dubs scripts and they have their own life. There's that there's like, a serious thing about, like, really good English dubbing in martial arts and animated movies where the scripts are a little bit or comical, and they have a little bit more personality, so I mean, that's our side. A long time ago I saw, you know, via testing just girl on it was, you know, the voice actors were really cool. And then I have to develop. Actually, there's like, a DVD Special Edition released like in the early days of DVD, and I have that somewhere. And I was really surprised because it feels a little different, you know, how have you watched the sub first? The dub? Uh, it's always a little bit different, but overall, it's a great movie. It has, like, an 80 style feel. It came out 93. So the early nineties were, like, still kind of like the eighties, you know, look, and really until, like, we got to like the grunge era, the nineties was just like the eighties part to loosen my So there you go, folks. We're doing a bunch of animal stuff. We got a bunch of cool episodes shadow to Mindy Green. We got a really cool

spk_2:   29:16
Oh, yeah,

spk_0:   29:16
