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.
Who could properly handle a script about a divorced man that falls for a woman who has a 21 year old son that is WAY to close to her? You know, one of those mother/son relationships where she breast fed him until he was, like, five? Weird, right? And the son doesn’t want this guy getting to his mom; he wants to drive him away.Details
You know, this movie has plenty of style, production value, and relevance for a comic book movie…IF IT WERE 1995. Unfortunately, for 2010, it is cheesy, and not in the ironic way, full of bad one-liners and a completely uninteresting script. Does anyone even know who Jonah Hex is? What could the percentage be of comic book nerds that not only know this character, but are also big fans champing at the bit for a movie version?Details
Four Lions is a British movie you will probably never seen in an American movie theater because we are a fearful, stupid people. And that is sad. It is sad because Four Lions is a brilliant comedy about terrorists that completely disarms terrorism with humor. We can’t have that now, can we America?Details
