The Dogcast – The Pat Walsh Show For April 22, 2012!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with another appearance on the Pat Walsh Show for Friday, April 22. This week I get to work with the talented Bruce Campbell as Pat was still a bit under the weather. Not only do we talk about “The Northman” and “The Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent” but we also talk about car movies and Earth Day related films (Hint: they’re mostly Roland Emmerich disaster films.) Enjoy the podcast and we’ll see you at the cinema! So Sayeth The Kendog!

The Dogcast: The Pat Walsh Show – 4/8/22 & 4/15/22!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a little catch-up duty. Sorry I’ve been gone for a while, but it’s been a hectic couple of weeks. First my website went wonky and I couldn’t get to publish anything for about a week. After that was fixed, I went wonky and ended up being a little under the weather. (Mild food poisoning, but uncomfortable as hell). Finally, I got my second booster shot for COVID this last Saturday and the side effects (fatigue, mild nausea, chills) hit me quickly and hard, putting me out of action for the weekend. So I’m gonna cheat a little and give you my reviews view the last two weeks of the Pat Walsh Show. I’ve got “Sonic The Hedgehog 2” and “Ambulance” for the week of April 8th and the following week I got to work with “Sweet” Lou Gallagher and I’ve got three films for him, including “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore.” We talk about other stuff too, but you’ll get the recommendations on five films over the last two weeks and that ought to catch everyone up. I’ll be back on the beam this week with new reviews, news and radio shows. Enjoy! So Sayeth The Kendog!

The Kenblog: Honoring The Work Of Bruce Willis!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with some sad news. Prolific actor Bruce Willis, one of the biggest movie stars in Hollywood, is retiring from acting after being diagnosed with aphasia, a neurological disease that impairs cognitive function. Willis is apparent having trouble with communication and memory, among other issues and while there is no known cure, I hope that treatments will allow Mr. Willis to find peace and enjoyment during the rest of his life. I know he has a large and loving family, so he will not be venturing into the unknown alone. Instead of treading over familiar ground involving his diagnosis, I though it more appropriate to honor his work over the years by providing clips of some of his best known roles. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do and, as always, feel free to comment below or on my Facebook Page. All the best to Mr. Willis and his family. So Sayeth The Kendog!

Dog’s Movie House: “Morbius” Fitfully Entertaining, Flawed Marvel Film With Potential!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at the latest in the Marvel Universe of superheroes. This one’s called “Morbius” and involves Marvel’s take on vampirism. It’s a unique idea and the character of The Living Vampire has been around for decades. However, despite a strong performance from the usually committed Jared Leto and some neat set pieces, the cinematic debut of Michael Morbius is a hit and miss affair, with a rushed script that has a fair amount of inconsistencies preventing the movie from fully taking flight.

The Dogcast: Some Classic “Gunsmoke” For Your Old Radio Enjoyment!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog with some more old radio listening fun. Because Pat Walsh and I were recently discussing western movies on his show, I thought I’d give you a taste of probably the best western radio program during the 1950s. “Gunsmoke” was a staple of old radio programming in the 1950s and was so popular it spawned one of the most popular television westerns, a program that ran twenty years. The tales of Dodge City and Marshall Matt Dillon were much more adult and weighty than most of the radio westerns of the day which were aimed more at the kiddie-folk. Great programs, performances (particularly by William Conrad as the deep-voiced Dillon) and some really solid scripts make this series a must listen. I’ve included two programs from the opening season here and will add more if you want them. Enjoy some classic “Gunsmoke” and as always, feel free to comment either below or on my Facebook Page! So Sayeth The Kendog!
