Topic: "Voice Actors in Live-Action Films
Chet and Rodney are joined by friend of the show, Lyndon Wells from Top10Films.co.uk to discuss A Monster Calls, our favorite examples of voice acting in live-acting films, and even whether staying in the theater for 2 movies is stealing!
Lewis MacDougall plays a character who is dealing with the fact that his mother is terminally ill which is contributing to his troubles at school as well as a reoccurring nightmare. The Monster, voiced by Liam Neeson, arrives to teach a few lessons and alter the boy's future while dealing with his present.
Despite the plot description, this is far from a kids movie. An absolutely amazing story coupled with a visually stunning collection of scenes makes A Monster Calls worth YOUR Movie Night!
