Come with Simon and Dan as they take you on a chronological history of the Second World War as seen through the lens of the silver screen!
Uncomfortable Bedfellows....or Flashdance and Smeggy. Could this Finnish epic be our favourite film yet?!
Battle for Sevastapol
It should be called Lady Death....Simon and Dan discuss this 2015 Russian/Ukranian (yeah shocking) mess about the Soviet sniper ace Lyudmila Pavlichenko.
Fortress of War Part 2
In part 2, Simon and Dan now turn to the film, Fortress of War, aka Brest Fortress, aka Fortress!
Fortress of War Part 1
Dan and Simon take a look at the history behind Operation Barbarossa and the outbreak of hostilities between Germany and Soviet Russia. A brief background before giving you some background on this epic film! Part 2 at the end of the week!
Tobruk Double Feature!!
Dan and Simon bring you a North Africa double feature! The rip-roaring Desert Rats with Richard Burton and James Mason and the very awful Rats of Tobruk.
So very awful!
A very snotty Dan and Simon are off to North Africa and this very good 2008 Czechoslovakian film directed by Václav Marhoul of the brilliant 'The painted Bird" fame. And a chance to win your very own copy of Commando comic book!!!
Can’t Believe More People Don’t Follow
These guys are terrific and I can’t believe they don’t have more listeners. You may remember Dan Stewart as Rafe in Blunt Talk. He and Simon take on iconic WWII films from the build up forward with a British point of view. Their banter is hilarious while they highlight the best and worst of this war’s movies. From this pod, I’ve been able to find great films. Subscribe and enjoy!
