Friday AM– movies on the radio, talking “Oblivion,” “Starbuck”

740gameIt’s Friday morning, time to chat with Mike “The Bulldog” Bianchi and Brian Kravitz over at 740 The Game.

At 745, we’ll discuss “Oblivion,” a real “star vehicle” for a star who’s faded a bit — Tom Cruise. Not bad sci-fi. Not great. “An April movie,” I call it. If it had potential, they’d be releasing it in the summer.

We’ll get to “Home Run,” the faith-based substance-abuse recovery baseball drama. Yeah, that’s a lot of genres. Not awful, but not that good either.

Enzian, the region’s art and independent cinema theater, is opening “Lore,” the German post WWII drama about a teen leading her family cross country in the chaos after Germany’s surrender because her parents have been arrested. They grew up in an SS household and have some sobering growing up to do along the way.

And “Starbuck” the funny and sweet French Canadian sperm donor farce about a slacker who learns he’s fathered 533 kids, and they want to meet him. So he starts meeting them without telling them who he is, and grows up a little along the way.

That conversation is at 745 AM on 740 The Game (you can listen online, too).
