Fat Guys at the Movies Ep. 95 – Faatu Barada Nikto

Fat Guys at the Movies

On This Week’s Show: Kevin and Neil are overwhelmed with the impending awards season, feverishly trying to watch all the films at press screenings and on studio-provided DVDs. They know this makes you jealous, but such is the life of illustrious film critics. Kevin declares that the role of Klaatu is perfect for Keanu. Neil refuses to see the family holiday dysfunction film of the week. No one even cares about Delgo and Neil only made it half-way through Slumdog Millionaire. They also weigh in on the recent Golden Globe nominations and declare it officially awesome that Tropic Thunder and In Bruges received a couple nods.

Films Reviewed this Week: The Day the Earth Stood Still, Nothing Like the Holidays, Delgo, Slumdog Millionaire and Wendy and Lucy.

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).
