Join Lee, Darren, Jim and Elton as they waffle, wonder and jabber on about film, geek news, video games and any other tangential rubbish that spring to mind, before reviewing a movie from yesteryear. Removing the Rose Tinted Specs to see if a film really deserves its classic status or the Sh*t Covered Goggles to see if a bad film is actually as awful as its reputation.
This week is brought to you by the phrase "Been a bit quiet this week" with the notable exception of the continuing excellence of The Last of Us, crazy named Formula 1 drivers, Slow Horses (the TV show not lazy equines) and an experts guide on how to waste time at a carpet shop.
Then after some fine feedback, including someone revealing entirely too much of themselves and a challenge to review more bad films, we move on to this weeks movie.
A heartfelt exploration of a relationship in trouble which also happens to have a monster in it or is it a metaphor? Either way its the indie horror / romance After Midnight.
Tammy and the T Rex
This week, Jim discovers long hot water bottles, watches The Rig on Amazon and an Ealing movie "When his number comes up" which doesn't sound like it will do a lot for anyone with a fear of flying. Elton finishes watching Severance, continues watching For All Mankind and joins Lee and Darren in discussing the first episode of new video game adaptation series The Last of Us. Which then springs into a longer discussion about the Video game adaptation genre. Then after that and some feedback from last week we move on to this weeks "movie" the notoriously awful Denise Richards / Paul Walker movie, Tammy and the T-Rex (or Tanny and the T Rex if you had an uncut version)... Oh dear...
Welcome to 2023 and welcome back to the latest episode of Black Dog.
We start by welcoming back Mr Jim Moon as he regales us with tales of surgery, super anaesthetics, morphine trips into the nether realms, booze canes and Eltons haunted TVs. Elton on the other hand has christmas fun with solo cups and a pringles can and a DIY disaster involving a drill and a finger. Darren goes all movie musical and also watches Girl on the Train and gives us a review of Draco Malfoys autobiography. While Lee can't read his own handwriting, hates the video game Chorus, watches a teen musical in the theatre and the movie The Menu... All while complaining about a fatal flaw in a toothbrush.
And after that its on to this weeks film. Daniel Craig continues to audition as Foghorn Leghorn in the latest "whodunit" from Rian Johnson The Glass Onion...
In the final episode for 2022 before Christmas break, Elton watches Severance and tries to tell us about his new Lego set... Tries being the operative word.. Darren, laments the loss of Henry Cavill as Superman, finishes watching Wednesday and reminds us that the film Tammy & The T-Rex still exists thanks to the video game High on Life. While Lee, watches Die Hard at the cinema, Terminator Dark Fate at home and then continues the masochistic streak by watching The Meg.
Then after all that and some feedback (mainly involving wheels coming off) we finish our Unconventional Christmas Movie season with that most festive of guys in red... Thats right! Deadpool.
Welcome to this weeks Blackdog, which should be renamed, "The one where the wheels come off"
This week Elton watches The Patient, featuring that bloke from Star Wars, Darren watches Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Wednesday and plays some Lego Star Wars. While Lee watches the new Dragon Age Anime series, Jungle Cruise featuring every adventure film ever made and then laments a work event featuring the dreaded boomwhackers.
After some feedback for Brazil, its on to this weeks Unconventional Christmas movie... A movie that is 50 mins of montage and 40 mins of actual new content... The pop video-tastic Rocky 4.
Hold on to your hats this will be a rather surreal ride.
This week Jim is away, but despite being ill Elton is here and talks about being ill, Darren watches Violent Night, but is less than impressed with Willow. While Lee spends thirty mins in a carpark waiting for his daughter to wake up, is underwhelmed by The Peripheral finale and watches The Grey Man on Netflix. After that all three discuss the new Indiana Jones movie trailer that dropped last week and briefly discuss the possibility of seeing the Avatar sequel (all three hours of it)
After that its LONG podcast review ahoy as we fill in the requested forms, check our ducts and review Terry Gilliams cult surreal dystopian film Brazil
The Blackdog podcast
The best podcast around
I love the black dog, it never fails to make me laugh, over the years it has got me through divorce, illness & redundancy (not sure which one off these were the worse) may it never end.
