Fat Guys at the Movies

On This Week’s Show: Neil is huddled down in the Magical Studio in the Sky, surrounded by movie bloggers like he’s in a boat of Cuban refugees, preparing for the blitz of sex and gore of Fantastic Fest. Kevin, meanwhile is jealous. The Fat Guys fight off Klingon attacks and giant wasps while they talk about movies like Fame, Pandorum and Surrogates. Kevin gives some love to comic book iPhone apps and the People of Wal-Mart, while Neil readies his Death Squad to invade Austin’s Alamo Draft House.

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).
