Holidays bring around the best of the movies. It’s the time of year where studios save their highest quality flicks for audiences to savor and hopefully, for awards voters to remember come voting time.
On the latest entertainment segment on The Large Morning Show in The Afternoon with Frank O. Pinion on the 590 The Fan KFNS, I reviewed the new Clint Eastwood film, “Richard Jewell.” The story of a security guard at the 1996 Summer Olympics who saved lives during a bombing incident.
The film stars Paul Walter Hauser and Sam Rockwell, with a supporting cast including Kathy Bates and Jon Hamm, and chronicling the events that took place after the bombing. Instead of being hailed as a hero, the clouds quickly turned dark for Jewell as the media and FBI tried to pin the attack on him due to his background and profile.
In addition to this film, there were the usual movie and television carousel of takes and jokes, followed by a period of silence or a random caller. Sometimes, LOTS of callers.
Here’s the full segment.
