    159: Back In Action LIVE!

    159: Back In Action LIVE!

    Welcome to this very special LIVE edition of the Nerdfest podcast, recorded during local improv comedy group Spontaneous Wrecks’ 10th anniversary gig. To celebrate, we did our Buff or Bluff quiz - topics included the 10th film in various franchises, silent movies with giant monsters, and actors who've lent their voices to video games.

    We also had a Nerd Debate on the Best Action Movie Of All Time. Cue fierce arguments and audience interjections. Let us know what you think of our final decision!

    And finally we held a great big Nerd Quiz bonanza, where two members of the audience joined two of our nerds to fight for the ultimate crown of True Nerd. We had so much fun recording this episode, and we hope you enjoy listening to it!

    158: Left Bank Shark

    158: Left Bank Shark

    Is it really safe to go back in the water? In this week’s episode the nerds go fishing for Parisian sharks in “Under Paris”, giant radioactive lizards in “Godzilla Minus One” and Daisy Ridley in “Young Woman and the Sea”.

    Hazel can’t decide if “The Bikeriders” is a recommendation or not, as her opinion changes throughout the episode. And Ian McLaughlin makes a triumphant return to the pod with “Dead Mens Shoes””.

    Catch your favourite nerds LIVE during Spontaneous Wrecks’ 10th birthday celebrations on 7th July. https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/spontaneouswrecks

    157: The Clone Wars

    157: The Clone Wars

    What happens when movies about the exact same idea are released within months of each other? Find out the winners in our surprising quiz.

    We also have both true and made-up facts about Werner Herzog, what inspired some famous dragons (snakes, mostly), and the weird things movies get titled in other countries. Can you even tell what's true any more?

    156: Crash Test Nerdies

    156: Crash Test Nerdies

    It’s stunt performers vs unrelenting bleakness in this week’s round of recommendations! Hazel enthuses about “The Fall Guy” which also inspired Andy’s recommendation “The Boy Who Lived”; a documentary about David Holmes, who became paralysed from the chest down after a stunt went horribly wrong on the set of Harry Potter.

    Peter discusses what is it about the Netflix series “Baby Reindeer” that makes it so compelling, before Jon does an immaculate impression of a genuine recommendation - the Sydney Sweeney starring horror film “Immaculate”.

    155: Stumped!

    155: Stumped!

    In a jam*-packed show we stump each other with "facts" of variable truth about Immovable object Jack Reacher, twisty Xmen plotlines, weird movie reviews and the lost art of the DVD menu. Dan has a quiz on daft Star Wars character names. And we find out which of our nerds know NOTHING about cricket.

    (*contains very little actual jam)

    154: Izzy's Ghost Gets Busted

    154: Izzy's Ghost Gets Busted

    We recommend new Netflix sci-fi series “3 Body Problem”, the nostalgia-fuelled “X-Men ‘97” which got the whole internet talking, Hitchcockian style thriller series “Ripley”, and (because after nearly 7 years of podcasting, Jon still doesn’t understand what a recommendation is,) "Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire".

    We also discuss our initial thoughts on 'Fallout- amidst various bursts of football-related heartbreak from Jon who isn’t giving the podcast his entire full attention during the first 5 mins.

Entertaining & Diverse

I found this podcast by chance and found it entertaining almost instantly. The mixture of varying opinions on movies spans the spectrum from insightful to ridiculous depending on the subject matter and/or commentator. Definitely worth a listen if you enjoy movies.

Sublime!

I found Nerdfest on iTunes and fell in love instantly. These pals from across the pond drop their knowledge and opinions on some of my favorite movies & tv shows - it's now in my weekly rotation. Great stuff!
