Ep 410 – Annhiliation – Jon Schnepp
*FILMS DISCUSSED: ANNIHILATION, A WRINKLE IN TIME, COBRA KAI, FANTASTIC BEASTS 2, THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES: WHAT HAPPENED?* Chris and Graham welcome first-time guest Jon Schnepp, into the ATC Studio. Jon liked Annihilation more than Chris and Graham. Chris family liked Wrinkle In Time more than Jon. Cobra Kai Youtube series looks great! Fantastic Beasts 2 looks fun. There are many Oscar films to choose from on DVD/VOD. Two good films this weekend so don’t let this episode fall into a #BloodGulch.
I’ve been disappointed in horror movies as of late. Seems we’ve had a few with interesting ideas but then they don’t execute them well. Ha. Execute. I made a funny. Too bad the recent horror movies haven’t made any. However, The Crazies, though my expectations were obviously low, managed to appease my hunger for the genre.Details
Most filmmakers, I suspect, would say “Man, if I only had more money, I could make my low-budget film SO much better”. They have a cool, independent film but feel they could really push it over the top with a bigger budget. Well, every so often, a movie comes along that defies that notion. Sometimes a movie could actually use a more gritty, low-budget sensibility. Repo Men is one such film.
Ah, Green Zone, the movie that finally tells us, the public, what REALLY happened with all those pesky Weapons of Mass Destruction that the Iraqi’s had stashed away in various locations. We all know they had them somewhere, even though we couldn’t find them. Oh, wait. We already know what happened about those, don’t we? Yeah, I thought so. So, no need to see this movie.Details
