Ep 387 – Mother – Megan Gailey
*FILMS DISCUSSED: MOTHER, AMERICAN ASSASSIN, THE SHAPE OF WATER, DOWNSIZING* Graham and Chris welcome first time guest, Megan Gailey. Megan and Chris were both shocked by Mother. Graham found American Assassin to be good spy fun. The Shape of Water has a new trailer making it look even better. Downsizing had all three intrigued. Two good DVD/VOD in Wonder Woman and The Big Sick. Make sure to snack early for this ep!
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
Sometimes a movie comes along that intrigues me. The idea seems interesting and if placed in the right hands, it can be elevated to barely decent. That’s Limitless. A barely decent movie starring a very pretty man, filled with obvious plot twists and a never get me on the edge of my seat plot.Details
