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.
Well, granted this didn’t come out in January, but we’re reviewing now anyway. It’s clear this isn’t a January release because it doesn’t suck. It’s way better than anything you’ll likely see until at least Spring. Winter’s Bone, despite it’s name, came out back in the summer. We’re just here to confuse you all.Details
Within the first ten minutes of the film Wild Target the audience bears witness to a hitman killing an innocent woman. Now, when a movie contains such a scene the reaction it would typically be after is a gasp of shock and/or horror. Not Wild Target. In this movie before the opening credits had finished rolling the darkly comedic tone had been set so precisely that the scene elicited laughter from everyone in the theater. Which is exactly why I freaking love this movie.Details
This is what you might wanna know when you see I Am Number Four:
1) I am based on sci-fi novel geared toward young adults.
2) I am a movie probably best suited for young adults, but don’t expect Twilight.
3) My title suggests that I am a really good set-up for a sequel (or two).Details
