'Get on Up,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' 'Sharknado 2,' and Special Guest James Franco

Friday, August 01, 2014 - 03:15 PM

This week's Movie Date podcast is dedicated to two men named James: James Brown, who's depicted in the new biopic "Get On Up" and James Franco, who directs the new film, "Child of God." James Brown expert Robert Baird, of Stereophile, helps Rafer and Kristen take a closer look at the former. And the real James Franco, along with actor Scott Haze, talks with the Movie Date team about the latter.

Rounding things out are reviews of two of the most highly anticipated films of summer: "Sharknado 2: The Second One," which is currently airing on the SyFy Network, and "Guardians of the Galaxy," which is in theatres.

Seriously? Again with the Marvel hate from Kristen? I've been listening to your back catalog and you guys have a great dynamic, but the Marvel hate is getting excessive to the point of being ridiculous.

Thanks so much for writing, Theodora. We're so glad you found us! We'll try to track down that interview and take a listen. No doubt, it will be quite edifying (if we can understand it)!

Hey Rafer and Kristen,

Just listened to your comments about "Get on Up." Check out Terry Gross' interview with James Brown which was aired this week on Fresh Air. The man mumbled!!

Love your podcast - so glad I found it! You two are the total package: great reviewers and entertainers . . with perfect diction, too!
