New Episode of The (title pending) Movie Podcast with Tank and Fogs!!

What’s up, (title pending) listeners, here’s a brand new episode for you!

Once again we have full slate of new releases to review for you. This week, it’s a wide variety – the animated “Hotel Transylvania,” the inspirational “Won’t Back Down”, Paul Thomas Anderson’s high brow “The Master”, and the time traveling “Looper”. There’s plenty to discuss, together these movies cover a wide gamut of movie styles!

In our featured discussion of the week, we talk about “Looper” star Bruce Willis. Willis has had a storied career, stretched out over 3 decades now, and he’s given us a diverse range of offerings, from undeniable classics… truly some of the best movies ever… to extreme mail-in jobs that make you wonder if he’s just collecting a check. Tank and I tell you like it is!

It’s another fantastic episode, so be sure to give it a listen! You can download it directly here, or as always, look for us on iTunes or Stitcher Radio by searching for title pending and/or Tank and Fogs!

Hotel Transylvania

In the dark of the theatre,
Barely anyone there,
Warm smell of my popcorn
Rising up through the air…

Up ahead on the big screen
I watched the shimmering lights
The art was iffy and the humor, dim.
I had to put up a fight!

There he was doing voices,
Adam Sandler as Drac
And I was thinking to myself,
“Can I get my money back?”

He was joined in by Samberg
Who also got in the way
Then the voices of their friends showed up!
Which leads me to say…

I sat through the “Hotel Transylvania”!
Such an average film.
Such an average film…
I can’t recommend you the “Hotel Transylvania”!
If you’re movie bound
There’s better things around!
