Fat Guys at the Movies Ep. 140 – 2012 Pounds

Fat Guys at the Movies

On This Week’s Show: Kevin and Neil meet up in the Magical Studio in the Sky for an epic show about the end of the world. They gush (sort of) over Roland Emmerich’s movies and dance a jig around how awesome Fantastic Mr. Fox is. And Neil takes to the high seas in support of Pirate Radio while Kevin grumbles after not being offered a press screening. They lay down a Fat Guy Five about Roland Emmerich’s best movies, examine the box office numbers and even read an iTunes review and listen to a listener voice mail, proving that the phone number does work. Save us, John Cusack!

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).
