    There's still a healthy dose of impressions and a quiz on quotes from films set at new years eve.

    Elf

    Elf

    In our continuing quest to become hip, relevant, and popular enough to leave our day jobs, the FoT team will be putting Elf (2003) on trial and judging once and for all whether this is an absolute cracker or a disappointing turkey.


    Dave and Joel will be defending, with Ausy and Alex on the prosecution. Gav will be both judge and MC, making sure our first foray into live streaming goes without a single hitch.

    Noelle

    Noelle

    Noelle is in the hot seat this week. Will it get on the naughty or nice list?


    Dave and Ausy defend, pointing out the light-hearted high jinx and joyful performances sprinkled through this festive feature. Gav and Alex prosecute, highlighting the flavourless comedy that takes no risks and boring plot.


    All this with a heartwarming impression of Santa himself and a quiz of quotes from Christmas films.

    Mank

    Mank

    Mank is in the dock this week. A letter away from what it really is or a satisfying release?


    Ausy and Alex are on the defence, talking about the beautiful direction and relevant political themes that make this a shoe in at the Oscar's next year. Gav and Joel prosecute, pointing out the dense script that takes no prisoners and chaotic plot structure.


    All this with an impression of Orson Welles and a quiz all about how real life figures have felt about their on screen portrayals.

For Ye Shall Be Judged... Films. I mean Films...

The whole premise of this show is wacky. An actual trial for films! Lol. And yet it really works here because it's so much fun. The hosts do a great job digging into the good, bad, beautiful, and ugly of a film, whether it's super serious cinema like Dunkirk or kinda ridiculous stuff like The Rock. It's sort of like being in a room with a bunch of guys who each have an entirely different way of looking at the same film, but rather than it becoming a screaming match, it's a a good hour-ish of fantastic conversation.

Do yourself a favor: subscribe.

A1 Podcast, must listen!

This has to be by far my favorite podcast out there. It's the only podcast I refuse to listen at work because it should uninterrupted. The concepts is fresh and clever, the segments leading up and after the main argument keep you entertained the entire time, and of course.... their banter is not only sophisticatedly interesting, but also full of crazy wild debates and hilarious flourishes. For sure, best podcast out there, A1 Steak Sauce... and I listen to Pardon My Take.
