TGB Episode 108: To Burton or Not to Burton (Guest: Fatboy Roberts)

May 10, 2012

The Golden Briefcase - Tim Burton

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim & Jeremy are joined by guest Bobby 'Fatboy' Roberts, of The Cort and Fatboy Show, to go through their Picks of the Week, talk over the new trailers for Ben Affleck's Argo and Akiva Schaffer's The Watch and more. The topic of the night was a discussion on the career of visionary filmmaker Tim Burton, in honor of his new film Dark Shadows hitting theaters. The boys talk over Burton's career, his wheelhouse and long-lasting relationship with Johnny Depp. They also discuss what they would love to see him do in the future in order to win over their appreciation as a director.

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Wednesday nights starting ~7:30PM PST. You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!

I loved the dude bro bit! Hilarious! I actually should have written those arthouse films down, cause I haven't seen some of those.. Very nice and insightful guest, then again they all are 🙂 No but seriously great job guys. Also a very fair assessment on Burton. I can basically agree with everything you said, which is pretty cool 😀
