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!
Über-prolific Brit’s Brit Mark Gatiss would be an international treasure if only for his writing and acting on Sherlock, let alone for such gems as his History of Horror three-part masterpiece (check it out!). But unfortunately, despite his heart almost certainly being in the right place, Gatiss – perhaps out of sheer lack of hours in the day – has turned in, and thus caused to be filmed, a wretched script in An Adventure in Space and Time, a brilliant idea terribly executed.Details
In 1836, near the heart of Texas, a young girl named Cynthia Anne watched as the adult members of her family were murdered and butchered by a raiding band of Comanche Indians. She, along with other young family members, was then taken by the group of warring Comanche. Learning of the massacre and the abduction, the girl’s uncle committed himself to rescuing his surviving kin from the grasp of the savages. This single event set in motion a story that would play out for more than a century.Details
It’s a movie that has a similar look as the Underworld films and only about as good as the worst of those. That’s not saying a great deal, I’m afraid, yet, I, Frankenstein still isn’t the worst film I’ve seen, or even likely the worst we’ll see this year. Oh, three cheers to the Hollywood crap machine.Details
