Fat Guys at the Movies Ep. 130 – Shenanigans!

Fat Guys at the Movies

On This Week’s Show: So here we are with another weekend of movies that Hollywood deemed unfit for critical consumption. Kevin and Neil call shenanigans on the studios this week in the Magical Studio in the Sky. Kevin had the gumption to go see the only press screening of Extract while Neil boycotted it out of principle. Word is that even the few press members who got to see Gamer had a chastity belt of a gag order, and All About Steve was only shown in limited markets. Meh! Such is Labor Day weekend. Go rent a DVD or Blu-ray instead of heading to the cinemas. There’s much more quality stuff out at the video store than in the theaters this week.

Kevin Carr crawled from the primordial ooze in the early 1970s. He grew up watching movies to the point of irritation for his friends and was a font of useless movie knowledge until he decided to put that knowledge to good use. Now, Kevin is a nationally syndicated critic, heard on dozens of radio stations around the country, and his reviews appear in a variety of online outlets. Kevin is also a proud member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA), the Online Film Critics Society (OFCS), and the Central Ohio Film Critics Association (COFCA).
