Fat Guys at the Movies Ep. 150 – The Edge of Fatness

Fat Guys at the Movies

On This Week’s Show: Neil is still off gallivanting at Sundance TwentyTen, so Kevin welcomes Merrill Barr from The Film Stage to the Magical Studio in the Sky. Surprise, surprise: Merrill has seen more movies than Neil normally does, and together he and Kevin discuss Edge of Darkness and When In Rome. The discussion inexplicably turns to relevant film issues like the development of 3D, the branching technology of Blu-rays and how much Merrill doesn’t like romantic comedies or Mel Gibson as a director.

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).
