Fat Guys at the Movies Ep. 171 – The Fat Airbender Eclipse

On This Week’s Show: Squeeeeee! Kevin and Neil run around the Magical Studio in the Sky without their shirts on, desperately trying to shape-shift into werewolves so they too can be worthy of sickly-looking Bella Swan’s fickle infatuation. Then they try their hand at mastering the control of air, earth, fire and water, but just end up making mud pies… yet they still have a better time than they did when they saw The Last Airbender. The Fat Guys analyze the creepy nature of some Twi-moms, read an iTunes review and lay down a Fat Guy Five about which directors could potentially screw up a kids’ show adaptation worse than M. Nighty Shyamalamadingdong.

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).
