Lass is More with Josh Lasser

Focusing on the media, "Lass is More" sits down with the individuals who make the movies and shows that people are, or will be, talking about. The things we watch are not created in a vacuum, but rather as responses to far larger thoughts and issues. From why someone took a role to what it means to them to where they’re going next, we put the pieces of the puzzle together. The "Lass is More" podcast gets to the core of the issue, offering perspective on both the people involved in a project, and the project itself.

We don't always know what we're looking for in this world, but with any luck we know when we find it.  In "Beauty and the Beast," Belle wants nothing more than adventure, while Ricky Baker in "Hunt for the Wilderpeople" just wants a family who loves him.  Interestingly, by looking for one, each finds the other.

The movie "Warcraft" does so many things right.  It looks gorgeous.  It offers an epic scale.  It offers a brilliant world (or worlds, really).  And yet, it is not a good movie.  Why?  Because it utterly fails in the story department, offering up the worst sort of videogame cutscene storytelling.

Josh watched a lot of television when he was younger.  A lot of television.  

Some of the best days were snow days and various holidays when he was able to sit there in front of the TV for the day and absorb it in all its glory.  Oh, he didn't just watch TV though, he watched movies as well, and now he's figured out just why sitting there for days in front of the TV is so important.

Some in our society would choose to denigrate experts; choose to deride genius.  It is part of a strain of anti-intellectualism which we should all fight against, but that isn't to say that all genius is equal.

The very way in which we depict genius in films differs greatly as well -- look no further than "Now You See Me 2" and "Genius" for two exceptionally different viewpoints.
