Fuds On Film is a podcast about, and this will shock you, movies. From blockbusters to arthouse, you'll find considered opinions and hot takes on worldwide cinema from three Scotch fuds. Invite us into your ears and we promise to only infrequently disappoint.
Intermission, January 2022
We start off the new year hoping that it very much doesn't continue in the same vein, as we examine Don't Look Up and The Matrix Resurrections for any redeeming features. Tune in and find out if we identify any!
Croupier and Hard Eight
What better place for drama to accumulate than the formerly smokey dens of iniquity that were casinos? Of course, they're now mostly free of smoke, if not iniquity. We look at two casino adjacent flicks, Croupier and Hard Eight, and see if they roll snake eyes, hit the jackpot, or indeed any other gambling-centric clichés you have to hand.
Cons, stings and swindles
Our theme for this episode is the con movie, and why not? Join us for a discussion of Il bidone, The Sting, The Spanish Prisoner, Nine Queens, Confidence, and The Brothers Bloom.
Intermission, December 2021
While I suppose we should be glad to see the back of 2021, early previews of 2022 don't look all that great. Take your mind off it all by joining us to chat about House of Gucci, Belfast, Spider-Man: No Way Home, The Last Duel, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, and Last Night in Soho.
Rollerball and The Blood of Heroes
We transport ourselves to the far-flung future dystopia of three years ago to take in some Rollerball, and an indeterminate post-apocalyptica for a round of The Blood of Heroes, or The Salute of the Jugger if you'd rather. Are either of these sci-fi sports worth purchasing a season ticket for? Tune in and find out!
Sports Films: Round 2
With Dickie Davies on stand-by, we return to the world of sport to cast a critical eye over Downhill Racer, Any Given Sunday, Warrior, 42, The Way Back, and Schumacher in our continuing effort to find out which sport is best. There's only one way to find out. Listen in!
Solid film review podcast
If the guys from Half In The Bag ever made a podcast (and were Scottish), it would sound like this. The hosts are very knowledgeable about film history and are clearly enthusiastic about the medium. A definite recommendation for movie-goers everywhere.
Ignorant comments. They do not know what they are talking about.
David Lynch Episode is Abysmal
I have 2 major criticisms of this episode that were so drastic for me that I couldn’t bring myself to listen to another installment.
1. It is not wise to dedicate an episode to a film director but not watch all of his work. Particularly with someone like Lynch, it is impossible to grasp the breadth of meaning behind his work if it hasn’t been entirely viewed.
2. They also left out where he’s more of a painter who happens to direct films and not just a film director. He’s an artist who operates on nearly every facet of art creation and films just happen to be one of them. I’m fact, he has been primarily doing painting, music, and furniture design for the past decade and a half The abstract ideas and his refusal to elaborate on most of them with regard to interpretation becomes more understandable- he is a post-modern surrealist who often operates in the abstract mood. Lynch is not everyone’s cup of tea and that is fine, but don’t pretend to understand or just write off what he does as objectively bad. I thought that was an arrogant, ignorant road to take. I turned it off when they said they had only seen two episodes of Twin Peaks. I can’t take this podcast seriously and I’ll never listen to it again.
