    Ep 97: Inception - 10th Anniversary Special

    Ep 97: Inception - 10th Anniversary Special

    In episode 97 of The Movie Robcast, Robs Daniel & Wallis are joined by the dreamy Mr. Ian Bird for a 10th anniversary discussion of Christopher Nolan’s Inception.



    The three dive deep into Nolan’s dream world, discussing its roots in the heist movie, how it fits into Nolan’s filmography, what is good about it, what is *gasp* not so good about it, and why it endures a decade later.



    And it’s not just because of the “bwaaaahhhhs”…



    Rob D also has to apologise to his mum for an oversight in the Greyhound episode and Rob W slaps Rob and Ian’s legs for going off on one tangent too many. Rob W also has the best Nolan pun in history. Something that will never be bettered…



    Thanks for listening and hopefully we’ll be talking about Tenet in the next episode… bwaaaaahhhhh!

    Ep 96: Greyhound & Palm Springs (feat. The Old Guard)

    Ep 96: Greyhound & Palm Springs (feat. The Old Guard)

    Episode 96 of The Movie Robcast looks at two very different films, both of which bypassed cinemas due to Coronavirus to premiere on streaming services.

    Tom Hanks’ Greyhound tells the World War 2 tale of a captain having to steer a convoy of ships through U-boat infested waters in the North Atlantic. And, excitingly, friend of the podcast Adrian Zak cameos to give his opinion on this lean, impressive naval thriller which has docked on Apple TV+.

    Then onto Palm Springs, an imaginative spin on the Groundhog Day premise starring Andy Samberg, Cristin Milioti and J.K. Simmons, and which can be found on Hulu. The Palm Springs discussion begins at 55.55.

    Rob Wallis also took one for the team and watched The Old Guard, starring Charlize Theron and which just dropped on Netflix.

    Ep 95: Hamilton

    Ep 95: Hamilton

    Episode 95 of The Movie Robcast sees our intrepid casters in pod venturing once more into London’s West End early on a sunny Sunday morning. And finding Leicester Square to be a rather noisier place than they’d anticipated. While dodging rustling papers, dustbin lorries and street cleaning buggies, they have a social distanced conversation about the Hamilton film, now available on Disney+.

    They also make time to discuss the state of UK theatre, online virtual theatres, and the recently revealed plans for this year’s London Film Festival.

    Ep 94: Da 5 Bloods

    Ep 94: Da 5 Bloods

    Episode 94 of The Movie Robcast sees Robs Daniel & Wallis in the same vicinity for the first time in three months! They decided to meet in town on a sunny Sunday morning to do a social distanced podcast. Both rocking a Bane look with their face masks (and you can hear Rob D shifting his a few times, well it kept sliding down…) they tried not to get freaked out by how randomly noisy they found the great outdoors. Take a listen, you’ll hear what we mean. We swear it wasn’t like this before lockdown…

    After some discussion of what possibly lies in store vis-à-vis filmgoing for the rest of the year, the Robs take a tour of duty discussing Spike Lee’s Netflix movie, Da 5 Bloods. A sprawling, epic, wayward, flawed, exhilarating and fascinating Vietnam movie, it gives our intrepid explorers in pod plenty to talk about.

    Ep 93: The Vast of Night (and an Artemis Fowl verdict...)

    Ep 93: The Vast of Night (and an Artemis Fowl verdict...)

    Episode 93 of The Movie Robcast sees our intrepid Robs looking to the skies to discuss The Vast of Night, now streaming on Amazon Prime. On this quest they are joined once again by Tessa Scott, back after a triumphant appearance on the Whiplash episode.

    The trio give their verdict on Andrew Patterson’s debut, a glorious evocation of 50s sci-fi wonder and paranoia. They discuss the influence of The Twilight Zone, what impressed them and much more.

    Rob Wallis also took one for the team and watched Artemis Fowl, the fell-at-the-starting-line wannabe franchise starter that has slunk out on to Disney+.

Chloe Musson ,

Love this podcast!

Both Rob & Rob have brilliant chemistry & always bring me up to speed with the latest goings-on in the world of film! Funny, light-hearted & PUN-derful! Thanks guys!

siouxie c ,

Movie “Lols “

Informative and you are always guaranteed a laugh ,the Robs work well together and I always look forward to their latest episode .

disappointed near-customer ,

In depth, knowledgable and doesn’t take itself too seriously

The new Siskel and Ebert? Both Robs work in the industry and, while often bickering like an old couple, have wit, knowledge and strong opinions which are much needed in a world of landfill movie reviews. Highly recommended even if they were wrong about Blade Rubber 2049
