On a crazy Wednesday, I was invited on the War Machine vs War Horse Podcast to discuss A Hologram for the King. Because Wednesday was such a crazy day, I have to share more details as that was the day I endured Nina and plowed through Elvis & Nixon. (I also tried Pretzel Bites at the theater for the first time in years and they are no substitute for popcorn!) While seeing Nina, I was initially the only person in the theater but as the previews rolled, another person came in and sat directly next to me… the entire theater was empty other than us two (does that make it a date?). Then between Nina and Elvis & Nixon, I jumped on the podcast. I won’t even mention what I saw in the bathroom at Elvis & Nixon involving soiling and undergarments. Finally, on my way home, I ran over a piece of metal and flattened not one but two tires, had to wait 3 hours for a tow truck and had to Uber my way home (thanks, Giorgios!).
In light of all of the trials and tribulations, give the War Machine vs War Horse Podcast a listen as host Michael Dennison and I scratch the surface on A Hologram for the King before discussing two other films — 12 Angry Men and The Big Kahuna.
Oh, and here’s my review of A Hologram from the King.
