Yet they are a kid I personally take credit sure the legalization we did in Washington State you know. Tasks. They can have moving there. O zero we did you continue to come do comedy I think there though there legislators realize that will make his legal we don't get the good stuff from Doug we got to figure this out.

You know Star Wars the force awakens the biggest movie probably of all DM time eventually when it's done and you know without any spoilers for some people haven't seen it what would you think. I'd love that you're worried about spoiler still that's so sweet of you. Yes I know I'm the only one really really care about your dumb listener this guy healthcare Detroit pulled out I don't watch it on the literary. Hi I hate that I carry you know I agree that people shouldn't spoiler like yesterday and Gary certainly a picture. On Twitter. The back of some guys that are all that's going everywhere yeah there's a measure would have people that resent that and reach we got our justice that it big guy who gave it. Continue to throw it out they're just or somebody else to possibly see it have a whole movie ruined for them you know but I loved it I think it's letting its grade in the all the various. You know debates and arguments to come up around it took you know I I find it all fascinating have you noticed spend my whole life you know talking about Star Wars movies in which one do you like which really don't like can say I just loves. I just love what they've done internally those. But also a moving sorority. A little bit just this one is in a perfect movie by any any stretch of the imagination and it certainly elevated to serve like Erekat Academy Award operation Serb advanced movie. But it's still. Did you know great enough to just make me so excited about that is going to be on the Star Wars movies from here on out. We'll dive and altered beyond that Steve tomatoes and Steve tomatoes gave it a 100%. Really yeah I love that movie. Great that you know that you never any problems with the because you know that everybody I talk to who has you know. So these different things and everybody's got to you know issues. Kotsay Doug I just wanted to develop mama like as you are worse fan but I love the original ones and just kind of made me feel like a kid again recaptured that that's you're just not only the story obviously imagined he would give a hard time about but. The way we shot like that that the that the film itself loses it it had that vibe of like a seventies. Yeah I was brought it brought the fun back yeah you know it brought out like in the. That's so true whether way they're that's an excellent observation. They were two dimensional characters Leon Neeson was the only one who I thought I he's intentionally playing this guy the way he is. And I felt like that was a good performance for me but had trouble was is everybody was Liam Neeson and now when those movies everybody at the seams are deadpanned. Dead performance if you will. Yeah it's. Yeah elite part of that problem to really did that is because they where they performed an entire film in front of a green screens you know there who was which are you know Salt Lake. We George just went so crazy with just special effects and you know that's dust that I think keep you know took his last ball in terms of you know story and characters and and I think that's where were where were back you know they did a good job of like for the first first huge chunk of the beginning of force awakens you don't see any characters that are Star Wars Canon like you'll see anybody from the past. And look and it's still very engaging with all of the new characters serve our interest staying in control on the net. And that deviate that camera but I couldn't beat they couldn't come up with a better robot like. They you know I. As much zillow. Have to be deeply keynote here just to be you know even more expressive and and a acute in the way it's not it you know quality walkers something like that you know or or heaven forbid chartered banks you know. Yeah Haniyeh head Tim characters I really like yeah haven't been criticized whatever the judge our drinks we're talking Doug Benson again recording Doug loves movies at the Nokia theatre this Saturday. Shows at 420 tickets are still not SEC presents dot org. So and obviously Star Wars force awakens that's a big movie everybody's radar and as rivers talked about but it's in your world dug anything else that you think Heyman people should see this. Tell you definitely got a few latest valve in the chip most movie at the rose show college yeah yeah yeah. It got so overshadowed by Star Wars they came out the same weekend. Really well it was you know people are saying what's the point of that but it and also of the movie sisters with Amy Poehler team needs to have failed so the next thing we can but to those movies quietly made lake they're up to like seventy million a piece like they're Blair's small hit even though they went up against Star Wars and moving addition the government gets Star Wars was drawn cowards and Moby Dick movie yeah nobody wanted to -- that there was like after that you know let's go see Star Wars. Yeah that's that that's a tough one even the previous match play it's time to see the previews of Moby Dick it just didn't interest me I don't know that's a good movie you're not just. I don't know maybe it's his loss of me knowing. Do I get there but he would know Teddy bear nobody Qaeda network. They're and that that that's a that's tough because Ron Howard makes good movies the guys like Ron sorry man I just IQ supports on this umbrella. Yeah. Hopefully hill. Eight. It just says such a bit but not a big movie that definitely can't it's surprising to me that like it didn't really get that initial let's go the first weekend because it's you know it looks like kind of spectacle you know but it didn't even get you know it got completely. Yeah snubbed even by the you know the Oscars didn't even throw it you know special effects and utter anything you know. Doug that is unrelated to movies I have to ask you get a folly on the Twitter and I notice you have a certain challenge that you're doing for yourself you're gonna trying. And I'm jealous that I like to join you at least once a one of these times you gonna go to Disneyland at least twenty times this year. Bull yeah IE I you know I pick at number rather arbitrarily candidates felt like a lot of times it's like you know more than once a month is a lot to go to Disneyland. And you know I just like I bought a season pass on the the last couple days after the new year I went down there clearly is excited true although you know they've they've made space mountain in turn it in cyberspace now and until you when you're flying around and there it is like typewriters and stuff Carly well. Yeah I ask how old base down now last Star Wars themed aren't yes we can we got to go. And also they've just they're just going nuts with you know the Star Wars land they just started construction but in the meantime. You know tomorrow and it's just been made overly storm troopers walked around. The whole time all my young Star Wars music is something is playing in that and that area of the saarc and the oceans it's adorable where they. They get a bunch of little kids they put robes on them and they have they do a show called dirt jet a training care personally right now and they just have these kids they're volunteer from the audience because they only have like there's a battle of the guys that dominated us. There had to come on they're doing the Star Wars these awesome. From what Chad hello this study we do amnesty for Star Wars since forever. How well it's been you know this is that you know they've had to start tour is right for awhile and that's right now features like at one point you go to Jeff Koon and or Levy disappears and then he's got a secret message for the for everybody and that's. On the Ryder. So this is headed this is Harry Potter for Disney basically. Yeah idea are they just they Harry Potter world it of that are universal in California and Los Angeles that's gonna open up I think in April I can't wait I mean I would just. I generous in my life just going back enforcement Star Wars and Harry Potter it. It's Stephen good news if you're me both brown and goodness we have a we have a guide because double done this a win by the time we all get down there we've got to get together with duds is he loves his theme parks like that we got because he'll be our guide to a different perspectives I did have a few years ago I finally got on its face amount I loved it so much a synagogue to write about the T shirt. Wow that is that is a commitment. And I Wear it all the time. I'm gonna stand proudly and you're like you're in love would that ride these myriad river that lady had married a roller coaster calling the ha ha yeah let's just do not married also. I didn't Erica all right I like any place has a roller coasters yeah athletes. But just the charm. Excuse me and also like into the Harry Potter stuff in Florida that universal manner that doesn't include judicious next level. Ride slightly. You know that they Harry Potter right there is like a combination of out of motion simulator an actual factions and emotion and Clinton in the holograms tool that's did everything it's like you're just putting in all the all the different bright ideas are just being thrown into you know one gigantic ride and it's just it's it's so much fun what they're doing it that's just. Hey you know Doug it's funny guy gets sad that they read some stuff down but boy it really we wanna Harry Potter ride if you hit that first arrest a lot of those other rides. Unlike these other Shrek thing or whatever a lot of those just are not good anymore you you you'd like at least don't hold cried though are still good dominates. For its own way just as a roller coaster yes I mean as far as like the visual effects of the naughty things under center right yamana is so so if you go to any of those places do the Harry Potter thing lasts or you'll be disappointed it's. Yeah and now I am but also like they're due in late maybe make things that don't even play good at these amusement parks 'cause the transformers ride it's really fun and I really liked those movies you know I don't even care about him but leave it right it's like it's really cool. So twenty times you think you're really going to be able to do this.
