Ep 370 – King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword – Steve Gillespie
*FILMS DISCUSSED: KING ARTHUR, SLEIGHT, THE RED TURTLE, CHASING THE LOTUS, WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES, WONDER WOMAN* Graham and Chris welcome first time guest, Steve Gillespie into the ATC dungeon. Steve talks about his new stand-up comedy album, Alive on State Street and how King Arthur left him bored. Graham found Sleight to be Dope light. Chris liked the animated poetry of The Red Turtle. Surfing doc, Chasing The Lotus, is great for surfers like Graham but maybe not everyone else. New Planet Of The Apes trailer looks good while everyone is not sure about Wonder Woman. Will Alien be any good or does Wimpy Kid stay in an attic and watch his family. This ep is the final chapter!
When you do a remake – or in this case a prequel that seems like a remake – you have to do some things that add to the film you’re remaking to make it somehow new. This has been done with varying degrees of success over the years, and this new version of The Thing falls somewhere in the middle. How’s that for a glowing endorsement?Details
I was looking forward to seeing this film because I really like Joseph Gordon Levitt and I had heard it was based on a true story. Both of these things came together well in what is a really good film. Still hung over from the abuse I took from Green Hornet, my Seth Rogen annoyance level was humming.Details
