Fat Guys at the Movies

On This Week’s Show: Neil returns from the pit of the Great Unwashed, otherwise known as Fantastic Fest. Kevin is stunned that he actually saw some movies this week but understands the Vegas odds of that happening when five flicks head into wide release. The Fat Guys talk toys, roller derby, capitalism and zombies. Finally, Neil throws down a Fat Guy Five of his favorite films of Fantastic Fest while Kevin ridicules him for his bad plot synopses and gloats over the fact he’s better at predicting box office winners.

Films Reviewed (and previewed) this Week: Toy Story 1 & 2 in 3D, The Invention of Lying, Capitalism: A Love Story, Whip It and Zombieland

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).
