Fat Guys at the Movies Ep. 148 – The January Sewer

Fat Guys at the Movies

On This Week’s Show: As Neil prepares to go to the Sundance Film Festival next week, Kevin and he suffer through the January Sewer, which is the weeks of the new year that hold very little hope for quality films. The Fat Guys haven’t seen anything this week, due to non-screenings and late screenings, so they talk about the upcoming Spider-Man reboot. And Kevin tries to mix things up by convincing Neil that Mila Kunis was nominated for an Oscar. It all derails in the middle segment when they lay down their Fat Guy Five: The Nine Most Anticipated Movies of 2010.

Films Reviewed and Previewed this Week: The Spy Next Door, The Book of Eli and A Single Man

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).
