    Isolation Reboot #9 - Keeping it real Hush-Hush

    Isolation Reboot #9 - Keeping it real Hush-Hush

    Listeners you are in for a treat because this week it's the turn of one of the greatest films of the last 30 years to get The Movie Men treatment - neo-noir crime classic L.A. Confidential.
    If that isn't enough to get you salivating and your ears twitching, Oly takes us through the twisting, turning passges of his subconscious in Oly's Challenge, Mark trains for the Tour de Yorkshire and we ponder whether rap battles could help address the Oscars' diversity issues.
    Podcasting purity, podcasting on point, podcasting perfection...is not what you'll find here. Could still be fun though...

    Isolation Reboot #8 - Dishonorable Dudes

    Isolation Reboot #8 - Dishonorable Dudes

    The Movie Men get the ol' flux capacitor out for a trip back almost half a century, and a reappraisal of Martin Scorsese's 1973 classic Mean Streets.
    We consider whether Thanos or Dr Heiter would be less suitable to organise a wedding, Oly goes full Boris Johnson and there's huge controversy caused entirely by Harry's lazy hand raising.

    Clueless Clowns

    Clueless Clowns

    Apologies for the delay and the sound issues folks - due to some technical difficulties The Movie Men are coming at you a couple days later, but it’ll be worth it when you get your ears stuck into 35 minutes of classic podding. We’ll get it sorted for next time!
    It’s 1995 cult classic Clueless under scrutiny this week, as the boys delve into a world they’re all experts in - high school fashion…
    There’s also Harry keeping us all…er…entertained? with an anecdote about a lovely bridge - sorry, I mean an IKEA bed, Andy Serkis trying to keep himself in the news agenda and breaking taboos with Jez & Nancy. Ugh…as if!

    Isolation Reboot #6 - Horrible Men

    Isolation Reboot #6 - Horrible Men

    My God are we only on episode 6???
    Well, at least we can console ourselves that we picked Horrible Bosses right? RIGHT??? Sorry listeners, the isolation fever has finally kicked in for some of us but never fear, we still managed to make it through another week's podding just for you!
    As ever, we answer the big questions like: who would be better fronting a government campaign, Aragorn or Leatherface? And why are people always surprised to see Daniel Radcliffe acting? He's an actor! While Oly surpasses himself with a challenge both of our time and for the ages.

    Isolation Reboot #5 - What the Hail?

    Isolation Reboot #5 - What the Hail?

    This week The Movie Men delve into the whacky world of Satanism, with a look at 2019 Netflix documentary Hail, Satan?
    The return of James Pugh to the pod has us debating film's greatest grapplers, a fine dose of they-don't-make-em-like-they-used-to from Jonny and Oly cooking up a dish best served with a heavy dose of telepathy.
    Thanks for listening!

    TMM Isolation Reboot #4 - Money Men

    Statistics and handsome men - if that sounds like your idea of a hella good time then come and enjoy the latest offerings from The Movie Men.
    This week, we continue with our 25 films to watch FREE on Netflix and Amazon Prime in isolation, with 2011's Moneyball, featuring plenty of big questions such as can you play baseball if your girlfriend's a 6 out of 10? Who's more of a shithouse, Mark or Jeremy Giambi? And will Oly ever make it to first base?
    Elsewhere, Harry spends the news section just reading out a list of actors' names and the guys ponder the practicalities of making a papier mache head from toilet paper. Yes, it's finally come to this.

Andy Toogood ,

Great listen.

Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start when you’re looking to unwind and switch on a quick film. These guys have it covered. Knowledgeable witty insights into all things film. Well done Movie Men. Certainly worth a listen.

Short, sharp and very funny take on all things film. Well worth a listen.

Hawaii-Five-Go ,

Great Stuff

I've listened to a fair few film/movie podcasts, but The Movie Men is one of the best around. Very funny, but still manages a good dissucssion about film. Definitely worth a listen!
