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.
Let’s get one thing straight: Having me review a movie written by James Ellroy is patently ridiculous. Whether or not what I have to say is favorable, the fact that I’ve been placed in position to pass judgment on anything the man does is silly. Ellroy is a legendary crime writer, while my only experience with crime writing is that every time I’m paid for writing, it’s probably a crime. That said, as a duly deputized “CFN” movie reviewer, I would be remiss if I ducked out of an assignment … not to mention the inevitable palm striking if I were to drop the ball here. Onward!Details
I love foreign films. When I see them I always think “Why can’t Americans make quirky movies with unusual locations, believable yet unique characters, with comedy and pathos starring big time Hollywood actors?” And then someone does, and I still don’t like it. Is it me?Details
