Ep 387 – Mother – Megan Gailey
*FILMS DISCUSSED: MOTHER, AMERICAN ASSASSIN, THE SHAPE OF WATER, DOWNSIZING* Graham and Chris welcome first time guest, Megan Gailey. Megan and Chris were both shocked by Mother. Graham found American Assassin to be good spy fun. The Shape of Water has a new trailer making it look even better. Downsizing had all three intrigued. Two good DVD/VOD in Wonder Woman and The Big Sick. Make sure to snack early for this ep!
I had only been doing stand-up a couple of years when I saw Bill Hicks at the Funny Firm in downtown Chicago. The back of the club was filled with comics. I had heard about him but seeing him live was another experience. I remember a bit about the Devil fucking someone and creating John Davidson and Tony Robbins. I remember thinking how cool it was that I was going to quit my job waiting tables at Bacino’s on 75 East Wacker and go at stand-up full time.Details
As far as I’m concerned, there aren’t enough movies with dragons in them. I love the movie Excalibur. If there were any faults with the movie, it’s only that there was a lack of dragons. That movie Reign of Fire? Still needed more dragons. So luckily for me, a movie has come out that has LOTS of dragons in it. Dragonslayer? Needed more dragon. Dragonheart? Well, maybe less dragon that talks like Sean Connery and well, just less of that movie.Details
From the first moment, there was a man on screen holding car keys covered in shit, I knew this was the movie for me. Many people are comparing this movie to The Hangover, which is entirely wrong. The Hangover was a piece of crap. It was a series of set ups that led to nothing. If I could have punched one movie in the face last year it would have been The Hangover for what it could have been. Hot Tub Time Machine hits all the gags it needs to, disgusting as they are at times.Details
