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.

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

Halloween has always been synonymous with death and ghosts in Western civilization. Yet in Mexico, November 1st is known as the Day of the Dead and is spent honoring lost loved ones. In 2014, director Jorge R. Gutierrez and producer Guillermo Del Toro released an animated film called The Book of Life that used the holiday as a backdrop for a fusion of classic storytelling and Mexican folklore about two gods who get involved in a human love triangle that goes awry. But did the film deserve the critical acclaim it received or should it fade away? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Chris head south of the border to find out.
