Two pals spout riveting drivel about films. The commentary is incisive, the throat-clearing is unobtrusive, the straining to be as woke as possible is palpable. Three or four times per episode we lay into the worst film ever made, Kingsman: The Secret Service.

    219. I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    219. I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    On this belated episode of Film Chat, Danny reviews anticipated threequel Bill and Ted: Face the Music in which the internet's boyfriend Keanu Reeves teams up with that guy who was in the previous films to give you a hit of nostalgia laced joy. It's basically fine.


    THEN we do a deep dive into I'm Thinking of Ending Things, the latest existential offering from America's saddest director, Charlie Kaufman. Y'know, given the past few years it can often feel like the world is going to hell but Kaufman's film is a reassuring reminder that this isn't true because existence itself IS hell so it would be impossible for itto get any worse.


    PLUS exciting hot takes on David Fincher's Zodiac, Netflix series Umbrella Academy, and that one-off Channel 4 documentary about dogging that got repeated last month.

    218. Tenet & Irresistible

    On this episode we review the much-anticipated and still-in-cinemas Tenet, Christopher Nolan's latest high-concept, low-IQ blockbuster. We didn't know what the heck was going on but at least the explosions were all in-camera. Plus Danny gives his take on Jon Stewart's misfiring political satire Irresistible, and Sam explains why the 2018 film Rampage should have had one more giant animal in it.

    217. Quarantine Chronicles Vol 7

    Film Chat episodes are just like buses. You wait 3 months for one and then two come along within a week of each other. That's the saying right?


    On this belated ep we give scorching hot takes on the latest Judd Apatow man child dramedy The King of Staten Island, Alex Garland's robo chamber piece Ex Machina and Amy Heckerling's seminal 90's teen flick Clueless. We also find time to discuss a proposed Princess Diana biopic and wonder whether it'll be shit or the shit.


    Next episode due April 2025. Keep watching the seas!

    216. Quarantine Chronicles Vol 6

    After an editing process longer than those of the the last three Christopher Nolan films combined, this archive audio recorded back in May 2020 is now ready for consumption by contemporary audiences. Remember May? It was a lot like now except barbers weren't open and Tenet hadn't come out. This blast from the past covers:


    -- Maybe Christopher Walken's best performance ever in King of New York
    -- Horror classic Witchfinder General
    -- Patrick Keillor's 1992 documentary London, which features a voiceover from a man very sad about the general election result and is consequently a mood
    -- Travolta's 30 different epic wigs in Gotti
    -- The Snyder cut
    -- Us being happy about what a dick Richard Curtis appears to be
    -- Sam's self haircut

    215. Quarantine Chronicles Vol 5

    Our good friend Georgia Mills joins us to revisit 1999's Best Picture winner American Beauty, which turns out to be a real hot mess. We also grill Georgia about the scientific accuracy of films such as Lucy, The Matrix, and The Martian, and learn about "double bees". Plus, we take a look at another classic, the incredibly self-conscious and awkward erotic blockbuster 50 Shades of Grey.

    -- Chat about Billy Wilder's late period comedy The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes
    -- Brainstorm session for a film pitch for Coronavirus: The Movie, including a little diversion into a discussion of the Josie Long film Super November
