Joining me this week to talk about Black Mass, the film adaptation about the life of notorious Massachusetts criminal Whitey Bulger, is Massachusetts native Danny Balis.
Despite — or perhaps because of — his interest in the real-life story, Danny found the movie severely lacking. And he makes a pretty convincing case in that regard — one that will ring true to anyone who has seen the film.
That said, there were a couple diamonds in the cow poo-poo, and I do my best to try and highlight those during our talk.
Still, the movie is mostly garbage. But that doesn't mean talking about it is.
