Eric was born on Star Wars and has since evolved into the ultimate film watcher. He watches classics, indies, documentaries, and even chick flicks on top of all the usual male-oriented choices.

His super power is being able to appreciate the artsy stuff while being able to appreciate and even love most of the mainstream stuff to (he'll even defend Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter).

Kent is old enough to remember when something looked awesome but had no idea why. This is his first full-time podcast but not first "child" as he already has a daughter that takes up way too much of his time dragging him to Hogwarts or The Shire.
He may or may not be a Dalek plan to influence human movie viewing.

Arthouse Legends – Selma

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Since 2008, the script for Selma, a biopic about the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., centered on the 1964 civil rights protest in Selma, Alabama, had been getting the attention of Hollywood heavy hitters like Brad Pitt and Oprah Winfrey. In a director’s chair shuffle, the film passed from The Butler‘s Lee Daniels to a young filmmaker named Ava Duvernay. With a cast rounded out with classically trained British actors and a host of recognizable names (including Oprah herself) in small roles, Selma was released in 2014, and it and Duvernay instantly became media darlings. The film garnered three Oscar nominations, but only took home the statue for best original song, courtesy of Common and John Legend. But does Selma find glory for its subject matter or does it fail to live up to the dream? MovieDude Eric, Kent, and Jonolobster cross that bridge when they come to it.
