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.

King Kong (1933)


In 1933, directors Merian C. Cooper and Ernest Schoedsack revolutionized blockbuster filmmaking when they married state-of-the-art animation, set and creature designs to create a tale about a giant gorilla that would become an film icon for decades to come. King Kong would also inspire generations of filmmakers who would go on to take leaps forward in visual effects and would eventually create even more lucrative creatures and even return to remake the original not once but twice. But does the original deserve the alpha status heaped upon it or does it take a long dive off an equally famous building? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Chris find out.
