Ep 416 – Super Troopers 2 – KATG
*FILMS DISCUSSED: I FEEL PRETTY, SUPER TROOPERS 2, BEIRUT, EQUALIZER 2, LIFE OF THE PARTY, DEN OF THIEVES, MAZE RUNNER* Keith and The Girl are back! They give an honest review of I Feel Pretty. Chris liked Super Troopers 2. Graham was surprised by BeiruTrailersers are not great, but who cares when Infinity War is here!
Ladies and gentlemen, we may have a front-runner for the summer season! Though I suppose it’s not without caveat. Pacific Rim may indeed be the most fun I’ve had in a movie theater this summer, but don’t look too closely for a deep, character driven ensemble. You got your conflicted, thinky Man of Steel, now you can just sit back and watch these giant monsters and robots beat the crap out of each other for two hours.Details
Despicable Me 2 is not as inventive, perhaps, as the original. The story isn’t quite as inspired, but alas, such is the way with sequels for the most part. But don’t let that stop you from seeing it, because frankly, it’s funnier and just a plain good time. And best of all, it’s got 30 % more minions!*Details
You know, I’m glad I got to see this movie again, because sometimes it’s good to revisit – What? Wait, this isn’t the same film? I see. Huh. You know, I thought Morgan Freeman looked younger. And Gerard Butler looked an awful lot like Channing Tatum.Well, I suppose it’s an easy mistake, seeing as this is basically the same movie as Olympus Has Fallen. In fact, White House Down is almost EXACTLY the same movie. So much so that I’m a bit surprised I haven’t heard about any lawsuits.Details
If anyone thinks The Lone Ranger will bring back the western, they would be mistaken, unless people bring back the western just to show how much better they can make them. Not that this incarnation of the Lone Ranger is horrible, but it’s not doing the genre any big favors. As far as the Lone Ranger character, well, I can’t imagine this doing so well that they make sequels. I’m guessing we’ll be leaving the Lone Ranger well enough, alone.Details
