Last week on The Large Morning Show in the Afternoon with Frank O. Pinion, I recapped a couple holiday films that were lost in the shuffle. When you only have time for 1-2 movies per segment, sometimes retracing your award season steps is appropriate.
First up, I reviewed Greta Gerwig’s “Little Women,” the 19th adaptation of the literary classic. Instead of doing a paint-by-numbers rehashing of the material, Gerwig switched up the timeline of the story and played with the ending. She also gathered a strong group of actors to get the job done.
Next up, Jay Roach shifted from comedy to drama with his retelling of the Fox News events from a few years ago where Roger Ailes was let go amid sexual assault accusations. Roach bolstered the tale with Charlize Theron’s award-worthy performance as Megyn Kelly, and John Lithgow did a wonderful job bringing Ailes to wicked life.
In between, there were the usual comedic renditions, impersonations, call-in’s from listeners, and the rundown of television and random questions.
If you are interested in listening to the full 45 minute segment, no commercial breaks, here’s the listening link.
