Ep 370 – King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword – Steve Gillespie
*FILMS DISCUSSED: KING ARTHUR, SLEIGHT, THE RED TURTLE, CHASING THE LOTUS, WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES, WONDER WOMAN* Graham and Chris welcome first time guest, Steve Gillespie into the ATC dungeon. Steve talks about his new stand-up comedy album, Alive on State Street and how King Arthur left him bored. Graham found Sleight to be Dope light. Chris liked the animated poetry of The Red Turtle.

Dear Meryl Streep, Are you okay? Do you need money? Did someone kidnap you and make you do this movie? Blink twice if you need help. I will send someone to get you. I appreciate that you’re breaking out of your Oscary movies. You were amazing in “Devil Wears Prada” and really raised the bar…Details
