00:32
electrons I probably should have some
00:37
radiation shielding but uh we're not
00:40
gonna worry about that I might wanna
00:43

00:45
through time and there's no oxygen but
00:47
uh we ain't gonna worry about that at
00:49
all
00:49
of course I'm reppin New York probably
00:52
the wrong part of New York this

00:58
so we bout to talk about the new movie
01:00
on Netflix see you yesterday it's a
01:04
movie involving time travel it is uh we
01:07
execute to see a movie from the African
01:09
Americans perspective and sci-fi so
01:12
thank you Black Panther so opening it up
01:14
now so we can see movies about black
01:18
important issues but also be science are
01:21
at the same time we excited about that
01:23
so let's get into it all right not so
01:28
nice for know my thoughts on see you
01:31
yesterday I thought the movie was was
01:36
very interesting I thought I'd enjoyed
01:38
it
01:39
scenes from know our perspective that's
01:43
no African American seeing it from
01:46
children teenagers inner-city
01:48
they kind of see that just this just to
01:51
see that we are smart you can be
01:54
scientists you know not every kid is in
01:57
gangs and I have a kid is in the hood
01:59
doing something wrong just trying to
02:02
basically learn a dance feel on snapchat
02:04
and whatever else are on you know those
02:07
kids like seeing black kids and
02:10
inner-city in New York basically
02:13
meets the back to the Phenom but back to
02:18
my I'm saying I really enjoyed seeing it
02:20
from our perspective seeing our race
02:23
represented and understanding that hey
02:26
we are smart we're able to do all these
02:28
type of things that any other person in
02:30
the world can do and seeing the kids in
02:33
the inner city basically oh no any other
02:36
person in the world could do them think
02:37
they were doing tomorrow oh yeah that
02:39
happens it'll go twice the speed of
02:41
light what but I can't say this it was
02:50
hard for me at the beginning the movie
02:51
follows what type of movie am i watching
02:53
cuz I know they're gonna be dealing with
02:55
a serious subject but it seemed a little
02:57
goofy at the beginning of the movie some
03:00
like this is a kid movie like this is
03:02
like a funny batch of the featuring
03:03
right everybody from watch as they
03:05
converse then I heard the dialogue my Oh
03:08
y'all hello to adult and with that we're
03:14
talking on this movie but um but yeah it
03:17
was cool I my daughter before I made
03:20
them not watching these before they were
03:21
like oh wow
03:22
black nerds exist I never seen on TV
03:27
unless like black man she did it she's
03:30
like black the Nerds like cool nerds
03:34
over yeah like I'll experience they
03:37
never thought they only see on people
03:39
that really seems like if they're
03:40
superheroes aren't there like thugs or
03:42
maybe hip-hop stars or dancers or
03:45
something like that
03:45
I'm singer you know so kind of seeing
03:49
like two kids in their City and they're
03:50
not like they're not like at a white
03:52
school or something like that they're
03:54
just at a regular school and they're
03:55
really smart that was pretty cool to see
03:57
so I like the way everything brought
03:59
together with the film
04:00
whoever pitched it I appreciate them so
04:03
that was that was some of the things I
04:05
really liked but like I said the first
04:08
like 20 or 30 minutes and just was I
04:11
don't know it's kind of taking me out of
04:13
it I was gonna support it regardless but
04:15
you know how much Netflix it is like if
04:17
it doesn't you know what I was going
04:20
through some port
04:27
but I was I was definitely you know kind
04:31
of like getting bored I what kind of
04:32
movie is this like when it went back in
04:34
time when they go back in time I was
04:36
like okay I never know I once it gets
04:39
past that part and the really the main
04:41
point of the story gets going is really
04:44
interesting and I really like the way it
04:46
takes you know shape on both of the
04:49
individuals that go back in time I can't
04:51
say you in my opinion I had my own
04:54
feelings about the main the main
04:58
character in the movie
04:59
Jesus my man Clyde just jumped on Jai
05:07
but yeah she see but I guess I guess in
05:12
a way they have to do stupid things so
05:14
you can stay entertained do the show
05:20
they want us to be yelling at the screen
05:22
why don't you just do this yes Spike Lee
05:25
is the man he is the man so but I
05:28
definitely say check it out some Netflix
05:30
great there's a good watch I think
05:33
you'll really enjoy very different
05:35
points you yep
05:41
before the ER non-spoiler review are
05:43
pretty much of a coincidence very nice
05:47
to see something like that again
05:49
representation does matter
05:51
you know growing up like that you know
05:53
again I didn't really see a lot of that
05:56
probably if I had been a young person if
05:57
this movie had come out when I was young
06:00
I probably it would have affected me
06:02
even more and I probably would have
06:04
created a time machine so you know but I
06:06
didn't feel it I wasn't encouraged to
06:09
create a time machine so thanks they
06:12
Spike Lee for waiting so long but um I
06:17
definitely enjoyed that um let me see in
06:21
ash let's say it is unfortunate that we
06:25
have african-americans have to deal with
06:27
some of the issues that are brought up
06:29
in the movie it's like it you know he
06:32
would like to be able to watch a movie
06:33
you know so let me just watch a movie
06:35
about you know kids time-traveling you
06:37
know and
06:38
you know when they go back in time and
06:41
they have to do the reason for them
06:42
having the time travel me it's not a
06:43
secret you know but you know you're like
06:46
gosh I wish they didn't have to do this
06:47
like man like God why do we have to do
06:50
with that but the reality of situation
06:52
is we as african-americans in this
06:53
society do have to deal with those
06:56
things so if it's uncomfortable for you
06:58
to watch a movie you know you prefer to
07:01
watch Back to the Future well you just
07:02
did it with a little bullying and it's
07:04
not really a big deal instead of you
07:06
know police brutality and you know those
07:09
type of things well just think about how
07:11
we the people have to actually deal with
07:13
it like that's that's real life
07:15
because of some of us you don't I mean
07:17
so hey it's in your face though watch it
07:20
and hopefully you learn something um I
07:23
thought was an interesting movie there
07:25
were some things about it I didn't
07:26
necessarily care for and I think we'll
07:28
get into that warm spoiler review again
07:30
some of the decisions that the main
07:32
character or particularly one main
07:34
character not really her decision so
07:35
much it's her her personality a little
07:38
bit kind of kind of rubbed me the wrong
07:40
way sometimes but I still think that you
07:43
should see it because again if you look
07:44
at Back to the Future you know you're
07:46
looking at people doing stupid things
07:49
oh you man what's his name Marty McFly
07:52
he does the same stupid stuff I mean he
07:55
doesn't seem to have anger management
07:56
problems as much but there's so many
08:00
times where all he has to do is the walk
08:03
away or go get in a time machine if
08:04
somebody says what Marty are you chicken
08:09
nobody calls me chicken you know now
08:12
he's doing something stupid so yeah it's
08:14
the same type of thing but again I'll
08:17
spoil my spoiler review would be yeah
08:18
check it out give it a chance and I
08:21
think that this will lead to other
08:22
movies you know you know to the point in
08:26
the future work it's not such a big deal
08:28
where you know it's you know it's all
08:30
black cast moves if that bothers you
08:32
we'll hopefully if they keep doing this
08:34
type of thing it eventually get to a
08:35
point where you don't even you don't
08:37
even see that
08:37
so go so my kids and movies black kids
08:39
and movies they're just kids in the
08:41
movie you know so all right so let us
08:44
now get into the spoiler review we're
08:47
going to spoil that spoiler spoiler
08:48
again we are talking about the movie on
08:51
Netflix
08:53
see you yesterday all right Chuck
08:55
what you get yes sir all right so for
08:59
this movie like I said a little smaller
09:03
I did enjoy look the Parts I didn't do I
09:06
just want to kind of have a little
09:07
discussion on on just going to beginning
09:10
of the movie
09:13
I'm not going to the deep part yet but
09:14
just like the first time they time Trump
09:18
then I almost threw me out I was like uh
09:22
like just that like Netflix you got make
09:25
me turn this channel if you don't hurry
09:27
up and get some CGI something going over
09:29
this on this if I see kids just doing
09:31
this looking like this you know Reading
09:34
Rainbow commercial and little lights
09:36
flashing behind them like this Power
09:38
Rangers I'm not seriously turn this on
09:40
the thor ragnarok or so so like get to
09:46
the point so they have a CGI paper
09:49
flying around and stuff you know just
09:52
like all those people yeah the trash can
09:55
was rambling oh yeah that yeah that's
09:58
what I was telling them like this is
09:59
getting like just take too long my god
10:01
meter no need yourself with this this
10:04
night it's not cool but uh once once
10:08
once I got past that part kind of got
10:10
the story and I really understood you
10:14
know where were I guess what she was
10:17
trying to do I'm CJ was the Claudia was
10:20
her name I think harder okay so just
10:28
real quick your partner Danny he says
10:31
good night there I guess we're getting
10:33
into the spoiler review so he's still a
10:36
hour 30 minutes you say to get like 15
10:40
minutes late he's watching it now oh I'm
10:44
not gonna spoil yet but wait so
10:50
basically you know no the only major
10:55
problem I had with because it was that
10:57
she was just so awful somewhat may have
10:59
some angry she was so angry and they
11:01
play right into that angry black woman
11:03
stigma
11:05
on Annette really like okay I don't like
11:07
this girl in the movie like she liked
11:09
everybody every little figure is dying
11:11
well the best friend brother like she
11:17
didn't do stupid stuff at the stupid
11:18
stuff and she's really not making
11:20
anybody like her in the booth so I don't
11:23
really understand why spiking it right
11:25
down that road to the butt but I think
11:28
it's one thing that we do need to
11:30
understand that I know that some time is
11:32
harness here and sometimes it's hard for
11:35
us to you know hear a true friend see
11:36
true sometime but a lot of times our
11:39
women are angry they have a lot of
11:40
things that they're going through and
11:43
they come off like that specially to the
11:45
black men so kind of seeing that
11:47
download made us what he wants to
11:48
portray was a hey you know we need to
11:51
start being nicer to each other you know
11:53
loving and caring and cherishing the
11:55
people around you more that might be
11:58
which one has you know reasons for
12:00
making the movie and making her portray
12:02
this type of image in the movie I'm now
12:05
writing the most part but you just have
12:06
some part she was coming to her friends
12:08
just means her brother's called many
12:11
type of thing and like really show
12:13
reason for her Deepa
12:14
mmm-hmm like when her brother's comes
12:16
and takes up for after she basically
12:18
lose a cool what to do next are fighting
12:23
him because he said smartest comment was
12:27
like yeah boom you know right we know
12:32
what's happening he going to jail he he
12:35
whole life was born so it needs to be
12:37
both side start physically attacking
12:40
people
12:41
just because you mad so I think he was
12:44
trying I think the writers maybe were
12:47
trying to show us a little more
12:49
restraint and shows that if we have a
12:51
time machine we make different choices
12:53
to back some of that and you know I know
12:57
I'm kind of talking about I respect him
13:00
for doing it so it was more like this is
13:02
how real black people interact a lot of
13:04
times and this is not necessarily the
13:07
best way we interact but this is a
13:09
truthful
13:10
you know presentation of what
13:12
conversation with siblings that are
13:15
african-american and especially without
13:18
they have a
13:19
that died in the movie so that was
13:21
another thing that she had no imploding
13:24
their relationship with the siblings so
13:28
and I think that's what I think that's
13:29
the reason I was she was so mad honestly
13:31
I think I think she had never I don't
13:33
think she's ever dealt with that before
13:35
father died okay
13:39
so but other than that I really enjoyed
13:43
just the different circumstances that
13:46
they chopped you change well go back and
13:50
change the future there's like each time
13:51
they were doing something what happened
13:53
and only to me it seems like it only
13:55
happened because they didn't stick to a
13:58
plan or like basically allow emotions to
14:00
to just run wild a what she she she's
14:08
the cause of most of this to be honest
14:10
not the first part like her brother died
14:12
but when they go back and like she was
14:14
just kind of have a cooler handling some
14:15
things and let them work some stuff out
14:17
and listen to from a friend over here
14:19
cuz he knew got some knowledge he did
14:22
know run right into something hey I know
14:24
what to do now oh just go back and try
14:27
it again yes she does make some bad
14:31
decisions a lot on the movie in it
14:33
doesn't really give you a clear ending
14:36
if he ever makes the right one maybe
14:38
it's some problems for us to just accept
14:41
and you know love the people that we
14:45
have and we know that there may be some
14:48
some tragic does happen to you know be
14:51
able to accept it and forgive and move
14:53
past it nothing to forgive move past it
14:56
so we can live our life you know I'm
14:59
just holding on the stuff is just gonna
15:00
keep bringing it down and I think I see
15:02
kind of what he wanted at the end of the
15:04
movie and why he doesn't get a clear
15:06
definite answer on if it worked yes
15:09
young went back and saw her brother
15:13
after her friend died the second was a
15:15
third time coming in and her brother was
15:19
like I see yesterday type of thing like
15:22
that to me just like okay regardless it
15:25
was about to happen I love you you know
15:29
it's okay
15:30
I'm good
15:32
they said you're okay and you can move
15:34
on with bikes back and I don't know she
15:37
does then doesn't see what she does it
15:39
at the end of the movie but it
15:40
definitely is a cool story and a good
15:43
and a cool way of seeing I guess time
15:47
travel science from the urban yeah I
15:52
agree
15:53
um particularly that last thing that
15:56
you're talking about there's some
15:57
there's some philosophical issues that
16:00
are really discussed like one of the
16:02
things one of the problems with time
16:04
travel they said once you do it and once
16:06
you realize that you can go back and
16:08
change the past that's all that you'll
16:11
ever do
16:12
and the no movie really a drill there's
16:14
only one movie I can think of that
16:15
really really addresses that and that's
16:18
the butterfly effect you know but in
16:20
that movie the reason there's a reason
16:22
why you have to keep doing that that's
16:24
because every time you go back in the
16:25
past
16:26
you mess up something you know you go
16:28
back and change something and now your
16:29
best friend has no legs no I mean this
16:33
movie wasn't it was kind of that but
16:36
really when you get to the end you
16:38
realize that like okay it's implied the
16:41
fact like okay she's very very stubborn
16:43
her mom one of the long the most
16:45
important lines in the whole movie is
16:46
her mom says I've never met any more
16:48
anyone more stubborn than your father
16:50
till I met you
16:51
so to me that means that she's not gonna
16:53
let it go so once she stays her brother
16:56
and her friend when he thinks he's gonna
16:57
do next
17:02
yeah yeah but why wouldn't she want you
17:15
know to me time travel is it's a it's a
17:17
it's a drug almost you know now
17:20
somewhere I've heard recently but
17:22
somebody discussed that like it's a very
17:24
good thing that we don't know how to do
17:26
that and basically you know anytime that
17:28
we have bad days that we're not able to
17:30
undo it the only thing that we can do is
17:32
move forward in time because if we could
17:34
go back and change the things that
17:36
happen in our past that's all we would
17:38
ever do let's go back and paint your
17:40
pants so that doesn't really it's not
17:42
really fair in the movie but I think
17:44
that's implied that that could
17:46
that could happen you know so even the
17:47
movie was an open ending life that
17:49
allows you to have those type of
17:51
thoughts and I think it was better than
17:53
to give us the happy candy because I
17:55
think the brother had accepted the fact
17:58
that he was going to die but by the time
17:59
you get to the third one you could tell
18:01
he's off he sacrificed himself in order
18:04
to say you know the other young man and
18:06
put the old man's like I know I'm good
18:12
yeah
18:13
deuces right I mean I told you from the
18:17
beginning not to do this right you ain't
18:27
my friend your brother you know just
18:29
give that old man thing yeah he's killed
18:32
oh um so with that Chuck I'm kind of the
18:36
same way with you I don't lift the movie
18:40
ended I wasn't quite sure how to feel
18:42
about the movie and the main reason I
18:44
didn't know how to feel about it is cuz
18:46
I just didn't care for the main
18:47
character right don't get me wrong I
18:50
feel her I understand her I get that
18:53
she's mad you know her dad died you know
18:57
without you know if he wasn't sick
19:00
anything it's infer that he probably
19:02
died in the military you know but that
19:05
her anger management issues it just
19:06
turns me off you know and the fact that
19:09
she can't really handle it should make
19:11
bad decisions like when they went back
19:13
in time their first time and when she
19:15
preemptively attacked like her
19:17
ex-boyfriend like they said they want to
19:21
make any major changes and that's the
19:22
first thing and then attack him again
19:30
and that is him getting his uh his arm
19:32
broken and I was kind of disappointed
19:34
that that there weren't any real
19:36
consequences from that like I would have
19:38
thought that because she did that that
19:40
would have caused the domino effect that
19:42
maybe cost her brother to get shot
19:44
you know what I mean I so I wish they
19:46
had kind of done it that way cuz I
19:49
really kind of wanted her to see the
19:51
consequences because the friend had told
19:52
her you we can't do this type of stuff
19:55
we have to be very careful I don't like
19:58
how she treats her friends
19:59
just like he's right you know calm down
20:01
don't come don't tell me to calm down
20:02
and you know she scowls having sometimes
20:05
like she's ready to fight him and I get
20:07
it
20:07
that's you know she's angry but watch
20:09
her roll up on somebody some big dude I
20:12
remember she rolled up on the dude or a
20:14
big dude she could control that anger
20:20
real well right then corny and like
20:28
laughs I'm like here's helping you out
20:30
worrying that you just like roll up to
20:32
the point door and really like just like
20:37
four o'clock in the morning and like
20:39
y'all you don't come with me I see why
20:45
you got dude maybe fires I just I don't
20:49
know sometimes yeah she did turn off I
20:52
would've thought she would have learned
20:53
by like the second time she was back in
20:55
town like okay make master start not
21:00
holding so much forgive people let some
21:03
stuff go except just attacking every
21:05
problem so yeah so yeah she's one thing
21:10
one thing that would have been good if
21:12
she had had that character art like
21:14
somewhere in there may be traveling too
21:15
fast but she had maybe one time she did
21:18
it she got really upset and that calling
21:20
something to go wrong so she went back
21:22
in time and she she's like okay let me
21:26
let me chill and let me be patient and
21:29
let me not go on if I could roll it was
21:31
was telling her at the beginning so she
21:33
could you know you can see that
21:35
development in her I didn't really see
21:36
that development in her you just saw her
21:38
she just didn't she just kind of she
21:41
followed that anger into being into not
21:44
giving up on her brother which was good
21:46
you know but again the movie I think
21:49
it's a good movie but just again just
21:51
that anger a little bit just kind of it
21:53
kind of turns you off a little bit from
21:54
character outside of that is good I
21:57
really like the UM the friend I think he
22:00
was amazing I love how he died like
22:02
twice right when he was dying on the
22:05
ground he was good and then when he was
22:07
like what the
22:11
nice like haven't seen that in the home
22:13
thing I've seen most of all he's making
22:14
like disappear you know he actually died
22:16
oh wow dreaming through the credits like
22:34
okay I know there's something at the end
22:35
of this I felt like I'm like are you
22:38
kidding me and I like the friends acting
22:49
when he found out about the fact that he
22:51
died you know he's like what I just died
22:54
like he was like he was serious like he
22:56
was like he'd been funny to that point
22:57
