Ep 380 – Atomic Blonde – Graham and Chris
*FILMS DISCUSSED: AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL, ATOMIC BLONDE, THE BIG SICK, READY PLAYER ONE, SUBURBICON* Chris and Graham talk to producer Aaron Brungardt about this weeks films. Graham was inspired by Inconvenient Sequel. Chris found Atomic Blonde a little uneven but overall good. The Big Sick is a really good film in Graham’s eyes. Ready Player One trailer looks like Spielberg is in rare form. Suburbicon trailer has everyone a little cautious. One good DVD and then two different films in theaters this weekend. This episode is like a loyal boyfriend or girlfriend.
This being my first ComicCon after a 3 year absence, it was fun to see what had changed and what had stayed the same. Also, it was good to come back to promote a show on Cinemax that I was in called Femme Fatales. The power of HBO pulling some of the strings to see to that I had a badge.Details
Before I assess the merits of the 2011 San Diego International Comic Con, I have to say flat out that in all my years attending this event, this year was my favorite. That being said, I also have to point out that I almost always thoroughly enjoy Comic Con and look forward to it every year. Sure, I’ve had a few bad moments over the years, like the time I had just gotten Ken Foree to sign a vintage Dawn of the Dead poster magazine, previously signed by Tom Savini and George Romero, only to accidentally leave it in a Japanese restaurant that would remain closed during the remaining days of the Con.Details
