Episode 380 – Two Chewbaccas!

fatguysatthemovies2_banner

This Week: Kevin takes aim at a couple things in this episode, namely backwards-minded studios who still think that reviewers only have an audience in the city where they live. But before his rants about that, he talks about some news and moves into the reviews of Guardians of the Galaxy, Get on Up, I Origins, Life Itself and the ambitious but disappointing Boyhood. Kevin also ponders whether dumb action movies with women are still okay for feminism and what you can pick up on DVD and Blu-ray this week.

Marathon Chat #4

rockpocalypse_fatguys_page

On This Episode: For the fourth installment of the Marathon Chat, Fat Guy Kevin Carr and known jock-ass Joe Neff turn away from the marathon tradition to talk about the upcoming Rockpocalypse all-night movie event at the Drexel Theater in beautiful downtown Bexley, Ohio, on August 2 starting at 9 pm and running past dawn. At this event, there will be four cheesy pop music films, featuring everything from doing the Freddie to staying at the YMCA. Titles include Cuckoo Patrol, The Day the Music Died, Can’t Stop the Music and Incident at Channel Q. Kevin and Joe also talk a little bit more about the upcoming Shock Around the Clock 24-hour Horror Movie Marathon in October, including some teases as to what might be in the rest of the line-up. (Of course, if you come to Rockpocalypse, you might be the first people on the planet to learn the truth of this one.) Pray for a cameo from YoGorilla!

This Week: Kevin gets set to offend the women in the audience for dissing the new trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey. For good measure, he also has a few things to say about the trailer for Dear White People just in case there aren’t enough people mad at him. But first, he explains why he doesn’t go to the San Diego Comic-Con, then talks about some news from the event. Later, he reviews the new movies Hercules, Lucy, And So It Goes and Wish I Was Here before also giving his final thoughts on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Then, he’s left with box office and the DVD Round-Up before riding off into the sunset.
