Ep 397 – Justice League – Brenton Biddlecombe
*FILMS DISCUSSED: JUSTICE LEAGUE, JIM & ANDY, ROMAN J. ISRAEL, BULLET HEAD, RAMPAGE* Chris and Graham welcome first time guest, Brenton Biddlecombe. In addition to doing social media for ATC and the Comedy Store, Brenton is a stand-up comic. Brenton like JL better than Chris and Graham. Graham and Brenton both really liked the doc Jim and Andy. Graham found Roman J. Israel very uneven. Bullet Head trailer makes no sense at all. While Rampage has the charm of The Roc going for it. This episode will make you want to call Brenton by his brothers name.
The movie opens in 1985, with Flynn telling his 12-year-old son all about The Grid, Tron and Clu, then leaving for work and his fateful date with the Master Control Program. Just before he leaves, he tells Sam they’ll always be partners, foreshadowing the events to come and ensuring a scene where the now-grown Sam has to remind his father that he said they would always be partners. Sigh.Details
I saw a blurb about Kevin Spacey in this movie not too long ago that said something to the effect of “The kind of performance that made you love him in American Beauty.” That’s all fine and good, but that kind of fawning just seems like desperation to me. Like people should see this movie because it’s Kevin Spacey acting like he did in a movie you love.Details
This is the kind of movie I hate to review. Why? Because it was great. Just great. What are you supposed to review? Blah, blah, blah, it was good in that way and this. Boring. Not the movie, the movie was great. Unboring. The review, that’s the challenge here.Details
