DV-Debrief:

The King's Speech

The Weinstein Company - The King's Speech

During our DV-Debrief segment of the show we talked about the award-winning, The King’s Speech. This movie is the story about King George VI of Britain impromptu ascension to the throne (after the death of his father King George V and the scandalous abdication of King Edward VIII) and the speech therapist who helped the unsure monarch become worthy of it. Actors you will find in this movie include: Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter and Guy Pearce.

Feature Flick:

Hanna

Focus Features International - Hanna

This week’s feature flick was Hanna. This movie stars Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana, Cate Blanchett and Tom Hollander. It’s about a 16-year-old who was raised by her father to be the perfect assassin. She is then dispatched on a mission to kill a CIA agent. While on her mission she’s tracked by a ruthless intelligence agent and her henchmen.

Enjoy the show. Just if case you missed it we will be taking a week off due to life. You know what they say: “Shhhhhhttuffff happens”. But in a couple of weeks we’ll be coming at you with a double dose of EftRoU. Look for that soon.

Until next time…

EftRoU 109: Mighty Mouse sniffed cocaine

In this week’s episode of EftRoU Dillon 2.0 steps it up a notch. Could it be because Cassi Perkins comes back for a second week in a row, maybe?!?!??!  Any who, this week we take on a new segment we are calling, Cartoon Character Showdown. We’re also looking at some history by reviewing and discussing Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy and our feature flick is The Conspirator.

Boobtube Babble:

Only in America

History Channel - Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy

Man-o-man Dillon 2.o was excited about this segment. For our boobtube babble we have a short discussion about Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy. As much as I tried to avoid it I couldn’t help but say “Get-r-done”. This relatively new show to the History Channel is about Larry the Cable Guy going around the United States meeting everyday people and sharing stories that you can only find in America. Learn more about why Larry wanted to do this show by checking out the show history. Listen to the crew shares some of their favorite moments, like when Larry rides with the Hells Angles, visits NASA, wrangles some alligators and much, much more.

 

Feature Flick:

Movie the Conspirator

American Film Company - The Conspirator

Keeping with our history type theme the feature flick we discuss is The Conspirator. This great film is directed by Mr. Robert Redford and it’s about the seven men and the lone woman (Mary Surratt) who are charged with conspiring to kill the President (Abraham Lincoln), Vice President, and Secretary of State. Against the ominous back-drop of post-Civil War Washington, newly-minted lawyer, Frederick Aiken (played by James McAvoy) , a Union war-hero, reluctantly agrees to defend Surratt (played by Robin Wright Penn) before a military tribunal. Aiken quickly realizes his client may be innocent. As the nation turns against her, Surratt is forced to rely on Aiken to uncover the truth and save her life. Other fine performances in this film include Justin Long as Nicholas Baker, Tom Wilkinson as Reverdy Johnson and Kevin Kline as Edwin Stanton.
