Here are two English creatives on a journey of sight and sound. This time we're making a run of film reviews. Now, we're not sticking to the rules of talking only about what is popular or hot in the cinema.
We have a responsabilty to find all kinds of films, especially those that may be slipping through the gaps, or movies that we loved that nobody seems to remember. So from old to the new, from the bizarre and the downright bad. We're going to sit through all that we can, and on a weekly basis, you can listen to our banter: coming from not only film fanatics, but lovers of the craft.
We don't claim to be experts, but we do have a point of view.
Mostly, we're doing this because it is fun and I hope you find that is true for you.
S01E51 - Deadpool
We ride on into the episode with a review of Deadpool, and then all hell breaks loose when we decide to discuss the issues with the new Ghostbusters Trailer.
S01E50 - The Predator Movies
Predator movies are synonmous with the Alien franchise and it has taken 49 episodes for us to visit these movies. We talk about Schwartzenegger and Glover, cover Brody and the beast itself.
S01E49 - X Files season 10
This is our second podcast about the X Files. You would be correct to assume we are definite fans, however we go in with a full hour to cover six episodes, five of which we're happy with.
S01E48 - Spiceworld, Green Inferno, The Force Awakens
We finally get on board and watch The Force Awakens. we wanted to also address that one movie that had been given the worst rap by respected film critic and film scholar, Mark Kermode, so we really wanted to cover in depth, the filth and nastiness that is Sex and the City 2. But what movie would we pit against such an atrocity? Well, the Green Inferno ofcourse.
S01E47 - David Bowie and Alan Rickman
This week, we talk about the passing of David Bowie and Alan Rickman, and even though we really didn't do it justice how important these two men were to the world of music and film and to art itself, the month of January for 2016 will not be forgotten in a hurry.
S01E46 - Blue Velvet and David Lynch Short film Rabbits
It took Stephen's wife several days to shake the image of this movie out of her mind. For her it was disturbing, and yet strangely compelling. I would have to say that this is true on both counts, but where we as reviewers go with this movie is to remark mainly on it's message, its cleverness... its versatility and unpredictability as movies go. This simple story reaches many avenues of the human psyche. Naturally, you would come to expect this from David Lynch. Also, we review his short film Rabbits which to some might be impossible to review. it's like a painting. Open to interpretation and doesn't amount to a hill of beans when it comes to how you make sense of it. There are clues... and nobody really should spend time organizing them in any order.

Fun without the pretentious attitude
These boys work hard. It shows, and I have a feeling they are in it for a long time yet. Humourous, pondering with unique points of view that don't copy and repeat everything else that is out there. They say what they want to say and that's important for a podcast.
