Reel Film Nerds Episode #71: Legacy – “Fred Claus”

Movie Review Podcast

Welcome fellow movie lovers to another exciting installment of the Real Film Nerds Podcast.  I am not going to beat around the bush on this one.  We started to talk about our latest film Fred Claus, but it quickly turned into a discussion about Kevin Spacey and if we should be watching the films he stars in.  It is a fascinating discussion about art and film that is worth listening too.  Fred Claus just took a back seat for a while, a long while.  The guys also discuss how many movies a year does it take to call yourself a reviewer, its not as many as you would guess.

Fred Claus is basically the Christmas movie Matt would make but without the happy ending.  This movie can be very dark and funny at the same time.  The cast is fantastic and the acting is pretty solid too.  Mike does not hate Fred Claus but it is nothing special to him either.  He gives it 3 out of 5 Reels.  Matt likes the film quite a bit especially the story.  He gives Fred Claus 4 out of 5 Reels.

Movie-pocalypse starts this Friday!  The guys are going to try to see as many movies they can and tell you if they are worth spending your hard-earned money on.  It will be very difficult to have individual podcasts for each film so keep your ears out for possible podcast combos.  We will return on Tuesday with a fresh new dose of the Reel Film Nerds Podcast!
