Horror films always conjure up the most interesting conversations. Radio or not, grown men talk about their worst fears and what movies first startled the crap out of them. Talk about Nightmare on Elm Street, Michael Myers, Gremlins, or whatever villain brought you to your knees as a kid, and it’s equal parts funny and terrifying to think back on.
This week on The Large Morning Show in The Afternoon with Frank O. Pinion, I reviewed Jordan Peele’s Us, Gloria Bell, and the new Netflix film on Motley Crue, The Dirt.
When it came to Peele’s film, he wanted to know what I thought because fellow guest spotter Mike Evans had called it the scariest movie he’s ever seen, but Frank’s son said it was stupid. I split the difference, so listen in and find out what I thought.
Julianne Moore can do no wrong, but sometimes she can find herself driving the wrong car. Gloria Bell simply didn’t add up to much or hold one’s interest. It was a terribly dry steak that looked like something juicier from afar.
Motley Crue tore their way through Los Angeles and the music industry for over 35 years, and the book the band wrote with Neil Strauss left plenty of interesting corridors to explore.
There was news, previews, and a pleasant announcement about my induction into The Broadcast Film Critics Association, which couldn’t have happened without this show.
