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.
My father has always said that if he had his life to live over again, he would have pursued a career in special effects make up. He’s a truly gifted artist who loves to sculpt and I think the idea of spending his life creating fantastic creatures would have been a dream come true. The jobs my dad did have during his life included working at a meat packing plant, owning a restaurant, and for the most part, catering. But he did manage to feed his muse over the years with his own amateur art projects. My dad is now in his late eighties and has recently neglected his art stuff, so I was trying to think of a way to get him motivated again. Then, I remembered Monsterpalooza.Details
Don’t you hate it when you’re watching a film or some show and some glaringly obvious product is shoved in front of the camera, like a can of Coke or something? It’s so blatantly obvious that it’s a product placement. Obnoxious much?Details
I wish I could have been the 14th Assassin! This movie is everything that a Samurai movie should be and more. You heard me! Pull your saego out of your scabbard and get some business taken care of. Like a Kurosawa, Battle Royale and Dirty Dozen mash-up. Yes I’m saying a lot because it is tree-mendous! (Not really a word) Unless you don’t like 40 MINUTE SWORD BATTLES! Which if that’s true then stop reading this and sell your computer, because you don’t belong here.Details
