Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at a sequel no one was sure they wanted! The movie’s creatively titled “Don’t Breathe 2” and is the five years in the making follow-up to 2016’s surprise horror hit “Don’t Breathe.” Both feature the uber-talented Stephen Lang as Norman Nordstrom, a blind former Navy Seal who has fighting skills that John Wick would envy and an attitude that would give Freddy Krueger nightmares. Here’s the thing folks: the first film establishes Nordstrom as a truly reprehensible villain who barely qualifies as a human being, which is great given the nature of the first film in which the home invasion trope is flipped on its head. This second outing tries to establish Nordstrom as a more sympathetic figure which becomes more and more problematic as the film continues, resulting in a technically proficient yet dramtically bankrupt film.Continue reading
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog with another trip down the 3rd hour rabbit hole of the Pat Walsh Show. This week Pat’s back and we get to talk about everything from my continuing weight loss (exciting for me, you probably feel somewhat ambivalent about it, heh), to our experiences with drive in movie theaters and of course the good old days of cinema. I also get to promote my website and let all of you know about the old radio programs I regularly feature on the site. Oh yeah, we also talk about the new Suicide Squad film, which is miles better than the original film that came out in 2016! Enjoy the podcast of the Pat Walsh Show and feel free to comment below or on my Facebook Page! And once again thanks to Pat Walsh, Mark “The Voiceguy” McKee, and the lovely and talented Kendall Tobe for letting me be a part of a great listening experience. So Sayeth The Kendog!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with some more old radio classics for your listening enjoyment! This time we’ve some of the great movie stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood making there way to Radio. First there’s The Black Museum featuring the great Orson Welles as the narrator of a series of crime stories. Then we have Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall in Bold Venture, a series about a couple involved in intrigue in postwar Cuba. Both are fun yet underappreciated series that deserve a listen. Enjoy and feel free to comment below or on my Facebook page. So Sayeth The Kendog!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at the latest Netflix animated offering. It’s a musical adventure called “Vivo” and it reminds me of a kid’s version of “In The Heights,” which is no coincidence as both feature catchy songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda who’s seemingly everywhere these days. I don’t mind, though, if Miranda’s gonna keep pumping out dance worthy tunes like the ones found in this film. The story has a few cliches, but some great character work along with the aforementioned music make “Vivo” a fun and lively film for the whole family!Continue reading
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog with another edition of the Trailer Dog Park. Today we’re looking at the “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” trailer which serves as a direct sequel to the “Ghostbusters” original films. We’re also looking at the inevitable sequel to the surprise hit “Venom” creatively titled “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” which introduces Woody Harrelson as psychotic supervillain Cletus Cassidy. Both films look decent enough, but the Ghostbuster film is the one I’m really interested. The two previous films haven’t even come close to matching the orignal and hopefully there’s an engaging story to go with the heavy dose of nostalgia that we all know is coming. Enjoy the trailers and feel free to comment below or on my Facebook page. So Sayeth The Kendog!
