Episode 66: Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider – ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon,’ ‘Larry Crowne’ and ‘Monte Carlo’
For the Fourth of July, Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider are celebrating freedom from great movies. “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” and “Larry Crowne” are both lousy, and “Monte Carlo” is only so-so. Jeff saw the New York Times documentary “Page One” (Eric didn’t) and says it’s pretty good, if you like newspapers and journalism and stuff. “Transformers” provides a good excuse to talk about toys that should be made into movies; the guys update their box-office competition; and Eric reads more iTunes reviews in old-timey voice.
QOTW: In honor of next week’s “Horrible Bosses,” tell us about a horrible boss you’ve had.

Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider
Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider are movie critics, but not the stuffy,
elitist kind. They’re not the idiotic fanboy kind either. So what kind
of movie critics are they? The kind with an Internet radio show,
“Movie B.S.” features reviews of new films both good and bad,
smackdowns of the bad movies of yesteryear, and a plethora of other
movie-related features. All of it is tied together by cavalier banter
between Bayer and Snider, who noticed that there was a dearth of
cavalier banter on the Internet and sought to rectify that.
