Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle discuss the recent trend of hyping films as from the mind or imagination of the director. They also look at the cast of the recently announced Super Mario Bros. animated film and set the record straight on The Dark Knight trilogy.
They also remind everyone there is still time to leave a message for their 600th show by calling: 213-770-7241.
Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre watch maligned movies and find their silver linings. For the month of August, they are watching video game movies.
They start the month with the franchise that started it all, 1993’s Super Mario Bros. It’s a film that is very loosely based on its source material and its stars have been very vocal about how much they hated making it, but regardless, Joel and Andy will find its silver lining.
