About Damn You Hollywood
It started out as a just a series of summer blockbuster reviews. It has grown to a nearly weekly movie review show. Robert Winfree and Mark Radulich take on the big budget studio films and animated features that have of late migrated out of the summer season and have dotted the calendar almost all year long. Winfree and Radulich critique all of the elements of the movie, but that’s not all. We discuss THE MONEY i.e. budgets, did it open #1, projected worldwide gross, etc. Lastly, we criticize the critics. Radulich reads selected bits from Rotten Tomatoes and Winfree attempts not to have an aneurysm. It’s fun for the whole family!
Mark and Robert fell into the movie review thing almost by accident. They’d gotten together a couple of times to discuss particularly divisive movies and discovered that his love of big budget blockbusters both complimented and clashed with Robert’s perspectives, plus they both genuinely enjoy talking movies with each other. What started out as a summer exclusive series has now expanded to a near year round almost weekly outing because they enjoy talking movies with each other so much. Robert also hosts the 411 Ground and Pound Radio, while also guest hosting on other shows on the RIBN network when possible.
