Two of our favorite guilty pleasure sports films! Are you ready for some football? One is a classic you might have missed if you’re a little younger. The other is a corny screwball comedy we totally love. Let’s play!
An incredible cinematic look at the conflict between Henry VIII and Sir Thomas More. A conversation on ethics. And one of our best friends joins the show to talk about his favorite film. Winner of six Oscars(r), including Best Picture (1966), best director (Fred Zinnemann), and best actor (Paul Scofield).
Based on a Rudyard Kipling story and packed with spectacle, humor, excitement and bold twists of fate. John Huston’s film of “The Man Who Would Be King”. Sean Connery and Michael Caine – chins out, shoulders squared and with a sly wink – star as British sergeants Danny Dravot and Peachy Carnehan. The Empire was built by men like these two. Now they’re out to build their own empire, venturing into remote Kafiristan to become rich as kings.
This video does an excellent job of nailing one of the technical criticisms I had with Man of Steel, and something which I feel will continue to be an issue with Batman v Superman. It would seem that DC learned the wrong lesson from Christopher Nolan’s Batman films. That because the Dark Knight franchise was successful, and they were dark and gritty with muted color, then ALL superhero films should be dark and gritty with muted color.
