Sometimes, a radio conversation can start one way and end another.
Last week on The Large Morning Show in the Afternoon, I joined the fellas to review a few different new films, but the majority of the hour was spent talking about the new Matt Damon-Christian Bale film, “Ford v Ferrari,” as well as an extended conversation about Tom Hanks.
Hanks’ new film, “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” was set to release the following week, so the topic of the beloved actor’s greatness was put on the scale for measuring. Frank isn’t as blown away by Hanks as most are, and doesn’t think Hanks has that much range. The majority of the room disagreed, and a healthy debate took place.
Which led to the discussion of Bale’s brilliant work as Ken Miles in James Mangold’s racing flick. Bale is a full-immersion actor, a brand that differs from Hanks’ bold blend of movie star charisma and acting firepower.
Sometimes, a movie gets reviewed and that’s it. Most of the time, good conversation takes place.
