Fat Guys at the Movies Ep. 141 – Big Fat Moon

Fat Guys at the Movies

On This Week’s Show: Neil squeals about Team Jacob in his review of the highly anticipated The Twilight Saga: New Moon while Kevin struts around the Magical Studio in the Sky with no shirt on, desperately hoping people will mistake him for Taylor Lautner. After recounting their harrowing stories of braving the hoards of teenage girls at their respective screenings, Kevin and Neil take a trip to Planet 51 then are Blind Sided by Precious before laying down a Fat Guy Five about awesome vampire/werewolf movies (hint: neither Twilight film makes the list). There’s also a bizarre discussion of where Somali Pirates might fit into one of this week’s movies… how does that all work? Listen and find out!

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).
