    Ep 170: Babylon & M3GAN

    Ep 170: Babylon & M3GAN

    In the latest ep, Robs Daniel and Wallis talk a whole bunch of movies. The pair open by giving their verdict on Babylon, Damien Chazelle's new picture, starring Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Diego Calva, Jovan Adepo, and a cast of thousands. The movie takes a look at the wild days of Hollywood 1927, but does it capture the party atmosphere? 

    The Robs end with M3GAN, the new killer doll movie from Blumhouse, starring Allison Williams. Is this one a slick, well-oiled fear machine or do the gears grind? Listen in to find out! 

    Rob Wallis has been a particularly busy cinemagoer and gives his opinion on two indie horror flicks. Enys Men, the new folk horror from Mark Jenkins, the director of Bait, and Skinamarink, the unnerving mindscrambler from Kyle Edward Ball. The latter set opening box office records for a horror film at London's Prince Charles Cinema. So is it worth a watch?

    Ep 168: Glass Onion - A Knives Out Mystery

    Ep 168: Glass Onion - A Knives Out Mystery

    In this ep Robs Daniel & Wallis investigate Glass Onion, Rian Johnson's latest Knives Out caper. It is no mystery why the Robs have so much to talk about; that man Johnson has done it again. To find out how, listen in. You will also be treated to the Robs doing their own attempts at a Benoit Blanc Southern drawl. As if that wasn't enough, they also talk about how great Daniel Craig is when he's clearly having fun, why Edward Norton is a good screen presence despite all those stories of him being "difficult," and they ponder the bizarre decisions that make up Netflix's business model. Fahllll puh-lay is afoot...

    167: Avatar - The Way of Water

    167: Avatar - The Way of Water

    Robs Daniel and Wallis and their wonderful guests have finished the deep-dive into James Cameron's feature film back catalogue. Now it is time for the Robs to return to Pandora for the belated follow-up to the biggest film of all time. So, what do they make of Avatar: The Way of Water? Ah, to reveal it here would be spoilerific, and this is an episode with a clearly marked spoiler section, so we're not going to give anything away. Suffice to say, there are points of agreement and points of divergence. 

    The Robs also discuss the 3D, the High Frame Rate look of the film, the unusually disruptive audience at the BFI IMAX, and more. Come on in, the water's lovely...

    Ep 166: Titanic & Avatar: James Cameron Deep-Dive #4 (feat. The Honeymoon Period)

    Ep 166: Titanic & Avatar: James Cameron Deep-Dive #4 (feat. The Honeymoon Period)

    Our James Cameron retrospective comes to a spectacular end with the third biggest film of all time and the biggest film of all time. Box office wise. We could only be speaking about Titanic and Avatar. Water show Rob D and Rob W have for you, you'll be blue if you miss it! We must apologise, we're just giddy after four great episodes of Cameron conversation. 

    For this final voyage, we are joined by Alex Leadbeater of Screen Rant, Collider and Comic Book Resources to discuss Titanic. Alex is a bit of a buff when it comes to the doomed White Star Line vessel, so was the perfect guest to talk about Cameron's sweeping romance. For Avatar (starting at 1:03:30), Mark and Elaine Gregersen of The Honeymoon Period podcast join the Robs. Elaine is an Avatar fan (while acknowledging its flaws), so just the type of person needed to balance the mixed feelings of Mark and Robs D & W. 

    Thanks for listening. If you've not already heard them, check out our previous three eps for more James Cameron banter!

    Next episode: Avatar: The Way of Water... finally.

    Ep 165: Terminator 2 & True Lies: James Cameron Deep-Dive #3 (feat. Secrets and Spies)

    Ep 165: Terminator 2 & True Lies: James Cameron Deep-Dive #3 (feat. Secrets and Spies)

    Our journey through James Cameron's movies continues into the 1990s, and JC's final two movies (to date) with Arnold Schwarzenegger. We begin with one of the finest films of the decade, Terminator 2: Judgment Day. What Aliens is to Rob Daniel, T2 is to Rob Wallis, and Mr. W reveals why in the episode. Not that Rob D is sniffy about the film. In fact , you could say this is a T2 love-in. 

    Then onto True Lies, and here the Robs are joined by Chris Carr, producer and host of the excellent Secrets and Spies podcast. All three have reservations about the film, and discuss how the film's sexual and racial politics seem out of kilter compared to the rest of Cameron's work. Chris also brings his expertise on all things espionage to look at what True Lies gets right and wrong.

    So, buckle up for all things Jim and Arnie, in the penultimate ep of our Cameron retrospective mini-series!

ElaineGreg ,

I genuinely do a yelp of joy when a new episode lands

I came across The Movie Robcast quite randomly when my little one was in hospital a few years ago. They kept me company through the entire night as I worked my way through the back catalogue. I genuinely do a yelp of joy when a new episode lands. Their insights into cinema (both old and new) are beautiful crafted. So much knowledge, a real love of the silver screen, and a brilliant partnership.

#1Curtis ,
