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.

    War of the Worlds (2005)

    No one would have believed that in the early years of the 21st Century that four hosts could make a podcast that is longer than the movie they're reviewing. As this week we review the Tom Cruise, not really a 9/11 parable HONEST GUV! Alien invasion movie, The War of the Worlds

Pass me the soggy biscuit, I’d like to hear the topic...

I was Kevin baconed to this show from the great derelict podcast and jumped on at the Children of Men episode. (One of my favourite films - side story I have a screen used rifle from that film.) I enjoyed the show, but I’d have loved a heads up at the beginning that there was going to be an hour of soggy biscuit before the topic starts. Im sorry you missed your blue zone gig and I’m happy your dog had his legs fixed but as the great Rocky B from Blazin’ Squad once said “when can we get on with the discussion about this massively depressing film that has so much cultural relevance to 2021?”

I’ll be back. And in greater numbers.

Rip Roaringly Funny!

My very favourite podcast and weekly must listen. Four well versed gents with the best of intentions regale their audience with a weekly review of a chosen cinematic adventure! That is of course until the randomness of their everyday lives comes out to play! Hilariously chortle your way through the back catalogue but beware this way there be profanity in all its wondrous glory! Lee, Darren, Jim and Elton brighten each Wednesday (usually) morning for me is what I can only describe as a rip roaring side splitting giggle thon! Fill your ear holes with it now! I insist! A great show with a wonderfully inclusive community, join the group on Facebook and take part in a hundred discussions that will have you smiling from ear to ear!
