In “Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar” Kristen Wiig & Annie Mumolo star as lifelong friends who embark on the adventure of a lifetime when they decide to leave their small town for the first time. Alan & Chris share their thoughts on this new oddball comedy and then switch gears to discuss a documentary about stray dogs on the streets of Istanbul (“Stray”). Following the reviews, Alan shares some movie news & Chris offers some film recommendations.
Alan Jackson is the co-founder of the Footcandle Film Society and resides in Hickory, NC. He enjoys a wide variety of films – but mainly those of Martin Scorsese, his all-time favorite Director. Despite liking smaller, independent films, Alan also likes films with giant monsters or where animals talk. Alan also thinks Citizen Kane deserves every bit of credit it ever gets.
Chris Frye, the other co-founder of Footcandle Film Society, is a fan of directors such as Stanley Kubrick, Terry Gilliam, and David Gordon Green. He lives in Newton, NC, and has always been a movie buff. His favorite actors range from Steve Coogan to Christoph Waltz to Jeff Bridges. You may be surprised to know he has never seen Dirty Dancing or Pretty in Pink (gasp!)
