The Movie Man rejoined us after taking a few weeks off to share his thoughts on the C.H.I.P.S. movie (he prefers the potato kind of chip, which led to a chip discussion and a tour through his pantry), Power Rangers, and Life. Plus: selecting the right fake meat and going inside The Movie Man’s freezer.
In an euphemism and innuendo-filled discussion, The Movie Man gave us his thoughts on Seth Rogen’s “Sausage Party” (where meat-to-bun ratio is of critical importance) along and then did a complete 180 (which scored a very respectable 7.2 from the judges) and talked about the very kid-friendly remake of “Pete’s Dragon.” Plus: what’s the deal with the Olympic diving shower & hot tub cameras?
The Movie Man called in to talk about Sandra Bullock as a political consultant, Bradley Cooper as a celebrity chef, and a little movie that’s only on 50 screens but might be one of his favorites of the year. He also wants you to choose between smelly feet and smelly farts.
In our weekly segment with The Movie Man, he discusses “Bridge of Spies” (and his love in general for Hanks & Spielberg), “Goosebumps,” and Guillermo del Toro’s “Crimson Peak.”
We talked with our favorite movie critic in the history of ever and got his thoughts on “Pan” (which seemed to make him Angry), the latest Steve Jobs film, and a brief look at “99 Houses.” Get more of The Movie Man’s unique energy over at Six Second Reviews.
A current war on Twitter suggests that The Movie Man hates space movies. He explains that’s not exactly true when he gives us his thoughts on “The Martian” (A two hour NASA commercial?). He also reviews Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Pepe LePew accent as Phillippe Petit in “The Walk.”
It’s been a disappointing summer at the movies, and The Movie Man lets us know if that trend will continue with this weekend’s new releases.
