Ep 372 – Pirates Of The Carribean – Erik Griffin
*FILMS DISCUSSED: PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, KING ARTHUR, WAR MACHINE, CHRISTINE (2016), MERRY KISSMAS, EMOJI MOVIE* Graham and Chris welcome back Erik Griffin. Erik talks about his new gig on Showtime, I’m Dying Up Here. Chris was disappointed with Pirates. Erik had low expectations with King Arthur which made it ok. Chris found War Machine uneven. Graham liked some things about Christine but it was too slow until he got lost in nextflix Christmas movies. Emoji is another kid film that will do well. Ok DVDs and then will DC finally get it right with Wonder Woman?? An episode for the ages.
I don’t always see movies with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in them, but when I do, I always enjoy him.
I have advantages when I see a GI Joe movie. I never saw the cartoon and I have no vested interest, so they can’t be “ruined” for me. I enjoyed the first GI Joe movie and this one is better.Details
Any preconception I may have had about Oblivion were irrelevant. I didn’t know where it was going to go at first. It definitely offers things I didn’t expect, and yet, it simultaneously manages to borrow little things from many different movies, and therefore allowed me to se some things coming.Details
After trying hundreds of times to explain to my oldest son what the word “crude” means and how it applied to his table manners, I was ready to give up. Then we saw Dreamworks newest animated comedy The Croods and he finally got it. “Mommy, are trying to say that I eat like a caveman?” “YES! That’s exactly what I’ve been trying to say!” Well worth the price of admission if all we got out of it was making that point.Details
Yes, yes, I know; why would someone remake the Evil Dead? We asked the same question when they remade Nightmare on Elmstreet and Friday the 13th. I asked myself the same thing of all these. But where Nightmare and Friday the 13th mostly failed by simply remaking the originals, Evil Dead is made not by trying to recreate the original, but by taking the same premise and making a film that is both faithful to the original, and creating it’s own identity.Details
