REEL Film Nerds Episode #45: Legacy- “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”

Movie Review Podcast

Hi everybody and welcome to the Reel Film Nerds latest pod. Today the guys discuss a fun and crazy Legacy Cast, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas starring Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro. The guys talk about journalism, Hunter S. Thompson, Tobey Maguire, and lots of trivia about the film. Don’t worry they get off topic too. Mike just keeps pushing a Moviepass discussion and Matt might have finally given up the good fight and dropped his subscription.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is a wild film with an insane and drug-riddled premise. The acting is amazing, the sets are fantastic, and it is shot beautifully. The guys once again agreed on a rating. Matt and Mike both give Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas 4 out of 5 Reels. What do you think, is Matt really as dark as he sounds and should he stop reading Marvel Comics and start reading the dark and gritty world of DC? Wait hold on we talk about movies here, so what if he is dark?

Next, the guys will be talking about Jennifer Garner’s action revenge thriller Peppermint. It is nice to see her getting work again outside of the Capital One commercials!  Email us your thoughts and suggestions or just email us to say hello.
