Jamie Lee Curtis Interview Special: Halloween Kills
Halloween Kills is the twelfth installment in the Halloween franchise.
That's right, twelfth. It's only the sixth - we think - to include the legend that is Jamie Lee Curtis, and it's also the follow-up to 2018's Halloween, the box office winner that reset the timeline and ignored the previous sequels. On this particular interview special, you'll hear from the queen of scream queens as she explains just how unglamorous it is to shoot a low-budget horror and what she has/had planned for the Halloween Kills red carpet...
Tom Hardy Interview Special: Becoming...Venom
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is finally in UK cinemas - two weeks after it first dropped over in the US - so now feels like the perfect time to unveil our 'Becoming... Venom' interview with Tom Hardy. Ali and Tom dig deep on what makes the character(s) tick, touching on the voice, the look, the attitude, the everything. It also contains some terrible Venom impressions from Ali, for which he can only apologise.
No Time To Die Spoiler Special
With so, so, so, so many of your fine folk asking so, so, so, so nicely, Ali and Neil have got together once again to talk No Time To Die - only this time WITH SPOILERS. That's right: the No Time To Die Spoiler special is here, and it's earlier than anyone could have expected. So if you're looking for a safe space to hear fellow nerds really dig into what goes down in No Time To Die, you've come to the right place. Just make sure you've seen the film already. Seriously.
We're not kidding. At all.
Movie News and Squid Game Review
With No Time To Die pretty much the only big movie in town - sorry The Addams Family 2, you know it's true - Ali is joined by the always wonderful Lucy Ford to talk about some of the biggest and best TV shows we're all watching right now. Okay, fine: Squid Game. A lot of this podcast (the second half, more or less) is about Squid Game. No spoilers though, we're totally aware we're not all totally up to date here, but as well as your usual weekly dose of movie and TV news we will be coming to terms with the HUGE success of the straight-outta-leftfield Korean Battle Royale-style game show drama.
Rami Malek & Lashana Lynch Interview Special: No Time To Die
In addition to speaking to Daniel Craig for our 'Becoming... Bond'
piece, Ali also got to speak to the likes of Lashana Lynch, Rami Malek and director Cary Fukunaga as well, the lucky so and so. And here as a bonus No Time To Die interview special, you can hear from all three of them about how they put the film together. As this was recorded so long ago, no risk of spoilers here!
No Time To Die - No Spoilers
No Time To Die is finally here, in cinemas, ready to be watched by you. The trouble is, here's a motion picture that's so stuffed full of twists and turns it's practically impossible to review it properly without giving too much away. To make things just a little bit easier for Ali, friend of the podcast and Bond expert Neil Alcock has returned to chew the fat on No Time To Die - and even talk about who should play James Bond next...
Love this show!
Wish there were less ads for other bbc shows though
Do your job and talk about the movie news!!
Stop reviewing old films with your stuck up mates. No one cares because we have seen them already!!
A great mix of all things film with a fab host!
Discovered this podcast during lockdown and have been a weekly listener ever since. I love the suggestions of films to check out that are both new/old, there’s insightful discussions and reviews that are never overbearing, interviews with cast + crew, weekly film news - really a great mix of everything that’s perfect for casual film lovers like myself. Ali is easy to listen to and such a positive, fantastic host!
