Ep 372 – Pirates Of The Carribean – Erik Griffin
*FILMS DISCUSSED: PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, KING ARTHUR, WAR MACHINE, CHRISTINE (2016), MERRY KISSMAS, EMOJI MOVIE* Graham and Chris welcome back Erik Griffin. Erik talks about his new gig on Showtime, I’m Dying Up Here. Chris was disappointed with Pirates. Erik had low expectations with King Arthur which made it ok. Chris found War Machine uneven. Graham liked some things about Christine but it was too slow until he got lost in nextflix Christmas movies. Emoji is another kid film that will do well. Ok DVDs and then will DC finally get it right with Wonder Woman?? An episode for the ages.
If The Dark Knight had jokes it would be Kick-Ass. Yes this movie is that good. Dark Knight is one of the greatest superhero movies ever and Kick-Ass is on par. I know the trailer makes it look like a Disney film that you might watch part of if you were on a plane. The whole time thinking, “I guess this film is ok since it distracted me from the two business guys talking about boring bullshit on my flight to St. Louis, but I’m glad I didn’t spend money to see it in a theater.” Fear not my fellow nerds, this film will blow your mind.Details
There is always a ton of horror movie nerd controversy about remakes in this genre, perhaps more than usual. And a remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street is way up there on the list. You seem to either be a die-hard Robert Englund fan and feel like this remake is some sort of personal afront to him and anyone that loves his work, or you have an open mind and take this movie for what it is.Details
Let the comic book movie onslaught begin! Or, actually, you know, continue. But I am certainly not complaining, no sir, not me. The thing about all these comic book movies is that it actually gives me a chance to catch up and/or read some series that I just don’t have the time or money to keep up with. Hey, it’s hard work buying and reading all these things.Details
