Frank O. Pinion and me rarely agree.
It’s not as rare as a rainbow hitting the sky, but it’s quite infrequent. The differences can make for good film discussion, and that happened this week on The Large Morning Show in The Afternoon.
Netflix’s new film, “The Irishman,” is being regarded by many as an instant classic. One of Martin Scorsese’s best films won’t be liked by all, and Frank is one of them. He was hesitant to give the film even two stars out of four, while I gave it four.
The pacing wasn’t enough for Frank, and he was left bored in the end-while I was riveted until the final frame.
Elsewhere, Frank offered more opinions about the new Fred Rogers film, “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.” While we both liked the movie, Frank left wanting to know more about Rogers’ sons and why they haven’t came out and given their story.
A caller brought up a documentary about Mike Tyson while another fan of the show recommended the darkly comic Paul Rudd Netflix series, “Living with Yourself.”
Here’s the full segment.
