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!
A movie, based on a musical, based on a bunch of rock songs from the 80’s. Add Tom Cruise as a creepy, messed-up rock diety and an opening scene of a bus-load of people singing “Sister Christian”, and you’ve got a reason to get drunk for two hours so you can get throught it.Details
My family is a big fan of this franchise. We fell in love with the characters in the first Madagascar. My 4-year-old loves Marty the Zebra, “Because he’s black and white.” My 7-year-old loves Alex the Lion “Because he’s funny and because I know four Alexes in my class.” My 42-year-old husband will laugh out loud at anything uttered by big-eyed, King Julien sidekick, Mort. And me? Melman the Giraffe’s neurosis makes me giggle but I LOVE me some Motto Motto the Hippo. In fact, his song “I like ‘em big, I like ‘em chunky…” sung in Madagascar 2 is my ringtone when my husband calls me. (Eh-hem.) But I digress…Details
Expectations. Sometimes expectations has much to do with how we feel about a film. And Prometheus, oh, how we have been given expectations about you. But if that were all that troubled us, one could perhaps wrestle our way past it. But to be given such a visually beautiful film, one that asks grand questions, one with all the elements needed for brilliance, and still come out with that empty feeling? Well, there’s more going on here than mere expectation.Details
