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.
Okay, I am officially worried for the Oscars. Seeing how weird Eddie Murphy is in this movie, he should have taken a moment to consider what hosting the Oscars means. Clearly, there is no joy left in his performing, and there is an odd disconnect from everyone he ‘shares’ screen time with. In fact, I would hazard a guess that many of the fellow actors weren’t even there on the same day he was since all his scenes were shot in a series of close-ups and one offs.Details
Sometimes, you really look forward to a film. A great, personal premise, great actors, and a cool location start things off and you figure you are off to the races. Then the film has a generational feel to it with some added organic nostalgia, a whiff of melancholy and an exploration of life and what people do with it. Cool. Wait… that wasn’t this movie. How did things go so horribly wrong with this film?
