KIMBALL VS KILLOUGH | REVIEW

starring Tyler Kimball & James Killough

It’s that time of year: the Oscar contenders have all run their race, so the dregs are brought out and slapped on screen.  In a perverse twist of fate—perverse only because studios will now feel justified to make more crap—those dregs are turning out to be frothy pints of perfectly pulled Guinnesses in terms of what they’re doing at the box office.

Kimball selected the lesser of all evils in cinemas right now, Daniel Espinosa’s Safe House.  Despite the fact they went to see it together, he and Killough managed not to discuss it at all up until taping this review:

Extremely Articulate & Incredibly Precocious

KIMBALL VS KILLOUGH | REVIEW

starring Tyler Kimball and James Killough

It’s official: Kimball has become PFC’s very own Tintin, the earnest, passionate young blonde who wishes everyone well, and who wouldn’t sound amiss exclaiming “Gosh, darn it!” whereas Killough is Captain Haddock, the salty old foulmouthed alcoholic curmudgeon.

In the shredder today is Stephen Daldry’s Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.  Killough suspects Kimball’s manager has been telling him to love absolutely everything and not piss anyone  in Hollywood off, but we’ll see what happens after they’re done with awards season and the crap starts flowing out of the studios once again.

The Director with the Golden Career

KIMBALL VS KILLOUGH | REVIEW

starring Tyler Kimball and James Killough

Kimball finally gets a word or two in edgewise in this review of David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. As usual, Killough knocks around a few movie stars (*cough* Jodie Foster *cough*), and is pleased Daniel Craig seems to be laying off the juice.

Note: There won’t be a roundup this week owing to the holiday season clusterfuck.  We’re back on Monday with Eric Baker.  Happy New Year.

THE WEEK FROM MY VIEW

by James Killough

I know, PFC being a filmed content company and all, I should kick off the weekly recap with something about the Golden Globes.  I wrote a few paragraphs about the noms, but then I fell asleep on the delete button or something because when I woke up all those forced snarky paragraphs were blank.

20-year-old Woodley dances circles around George Clooney in "The Descendants." Hers is a seemingly effortless performance that only highlights the fact Clooney should really stick to comedy.

While I was sparing you a tirade about how bored I am with what’s on the screen these days, I believe I dreamed about the funniest thing I read this week: Keanu Reeves’ directorial debut, The Man From Tai Chi, is a go with Chinese financing.  This is presumably because no studio in town would touch it.

Today Tyler Kimball is in the hot seat getting run over by Killough as they slash their way through Steve McQueen’s Shame.  Killough makes it all personal, as usual.
