While many people are struggling to come to terms with the results of the election (on both sides of the aisle), one happy result in California is the legalization of the Devil’s Flower, which makes The Movie Man a very happy The Movie Man. We also discussed this weekend’s new releases, including “Arrival” and “Shut In.”Follow @bigwakeupcall
After taking several weeks of fin protest of a very poor summer movie season (which he sums up in one word at the beginning of the segment), The Movie Man called in to give us his thoughts on the Clint Eastwood/Tom Hanks film “Sully,” which seems to be getting fall movies off to a promising start.Follow @bigwakeupcall
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?
After taking a few weeks off to cleanse himself of bad movies and social media negativity, The Movie Man called us live from his en suite master bathroom to talk about the general lack of exciting movies this summer as well as to share his thoughts on “The Shallows,” “Independence Day: Resurgence” and “Free State of Jones.”Follow @bigwakeupcall
It’s going to be 80 degrees and sunny today in Chicago, so of course we’re all going to head to a dark movie theater and check out “Captain America: Civil War.” The Movie Man gives us his thoughts (how it’s less of a civil war and more of a civil disagreement) and encourages us to vote in his Twitter poll on whether you’re Team Iron Man, Team Captain America, or Team I Don’t Give a Bleep.Follow @bigwakeupcall
