    MASSIVE Review Round-up: The Fall Guy, Apes, The Idea Of You, Back In Black and more

    MASSIVE Review Round-up: The Fall Guy, Apes, The Idea Of You, Back In Black and more

    Friend of the show (and The Independent's chief film critic) Clarisse Loughrey joins forces with Digital Spy's Movies Editor Ian Sandwell to review the biggest releases of the past few weeks with good ol' Ali, including The Fall Guy, Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes, The Idea Of You, Back In Black and much, much more. Spoilers are avoided, so if you're keen to watch any of these, fear not: only casual allusions are alluded to.

    Shōgun Spoiler Special Feat. Abroad In Japan's Chris Broad!

    Shōgun Spoiler Special Feat. Abroad In Japan's Chris Broad!

    By now, you'd think Ali would have shut up about going on holiday to Japan... and yet, that's somehow not the case - but with good reason! Joining him to talk about the critically adored drama series Shōgun is his new best pal Chris Broad - creator of the Abroad In Japan YouTube channel and a man who knows a thing or two about the land of the rising sun - and now you can enjoy their exceptionally geeky and thoroughly spoiler-filled conversation yourself, with one of them (Ali) still jetlagged and the other (Chris) in his studio in Tokyo. Fingers crossed most of this makes some sort of sense.

    Ali's Film Club: National Treasure

    Ali's Film Club: National Treasure

    It’s a return visit from Such Brave Girls’ Kat Sadler for a short and sweet Ali Plumb’s film club while he shakes off the jet lag from his trip to Japan. Kat’s choice for everyone’s favourite on and off film club? National Treasure. As in, Nic Cage and Sean Bean and puzzles and stealing the declaration of Independence. It’s better than you remember, honest.

    Dune: Part Two Spoiler Special With Clarisse Loughrey and Steffan Powell

    Dune: Part Two Spoiler Special With Clarisse Loughrey and Steffan Powell

    It’s been a short while since Denis Villeneuve took us all on a return trip to Arrakis, but with Dune: Part Two starting up its home entertainment release, Ali and his fellow Frank Herbert aficionados Clarisse Loughrey and Steffan Powell decided now was the time to really dig into what happened with Paul and Chani and the rest of the epic sci-fi sequel’s much-loved (and oh-so-complicated) characters. Expect spoilerific and highly nerdy chat on everything from the score to, well, the very final shot. So… if you haven’t seen the movie yet, maybe now’s a good time?

    Such Brave Girls Interview special with Kat Sadler

    Such Brave Girls: the darker-than-dark BBC 3 sitcom that hopefully you’ve seen already… but then again, if you haven’t yet, that’s okay too because you’re really in for a treat. Ali’s such a fan he’s invited the star and creator, Kat Sadler, onto the podcast for a special conversation about how the programme came together. So as you may have guessed, hop to iPlayer to catch up first, whydoncha?

Great recommendations

Thanks guys! I saved a lot of shows to watch during this holiday season. However could you please make a list of the shows mentioned in the podcast notes/description? That would be super helpful

The best interviewer in the game

Ali Plumb consistently delivers ridiculously entertaining chats with the biggest names in the game. Love the fun and creative questions, which always elicit great answers. Brilliant stuff!

Going to brighten your day

Ali Plumb is a bright spot in my day every time I tune in. Seems like the sort of chap you’d love to grab a drink with or have over for a dinner party. Love the variety of guests and the genuine love of movies television. You’ll learn things, be entertained, and come away feeling like you have this friend at BBC 1 you’ve never met and doesn’t know you from Adam.
