    Isolation Reboot #14 - Lurking In The Shadows

    Isolation Reboot #14 - Lurking In The Shadows

    GO BACK TO THE SHADOWS! As Gandalf once said. Or, alternatively, emerge from them like the beautiful vampire butterfly you are as this week The Movie Men are sinking their teeth into Taka Waititi’s 2014 rockumentary What We Do In The Shadows. It’s funny. So listen.
    Mark also updates us on his unrequited love for Gael Garcia Bernal, there’s some dynamite chat on coastal erosion and we take a look at the murky world of Norwegian black metal. Of course.

    Isolation Reboot #13 - Nice and Spicy

    Isolation Reboot #13 - Nice and Spicy

    It’s a triumvirate steering the ship this week as Oly, Callum & Jonny splice and dice all things nice with a forensic* examination of Ryan Gosling & Russell Crowe in 2016 Neo-noir The Nice Guys.
    We pay tribute to top scorer Ennio Morricone, question whether Jason Voorhies has adequate PPE and do our best to STOP GETTING BOND WRONG! Also, Oly gargles on something that may or may not be balls.
    *Disclaimer - actual examination may be considerably less than forensic.

    Isolation Reboot #12 - 24 Hour Party Podders

    Isolation Reboot #12 - 24 Hour Party Podders

    Oh yes, we're still doing this shiz and this week an extra special joy for you all - 2002's ode to the greatness of Madchester and Factory Records, 24 Hour Party People.
    Note - There's a couple of moments of very, very strong language (all quoted direct from the film) so you have been warned.
    We also twist our melons round Michael Keaton's mooted return to the batsuit, what not to watch on a plane and why sex scenes are always perfectly timed for when your parents walk in. Step in and step on...

    Isolation Reboot #11 - Unwholesome Prison Blues

    Isolation Reboot #11 - Unwholesome Prison Blues

    Better late than never, The Movie Men are back to take a look at the darkest of the dark - Denis Villeneuve's thriller Prisoners (2013). Some heavyweight chops from Jake Gyllenhaal & Hugh Jackman help to lighten some of the depression but listener beware, this one ain't for the faint of heart.
    We also talk potential Alien reboots, James Bond's kids and, if you stick around to the end, you can find out how Oly & Callum like to spend their weekends...

    Isolation Reboot #10 - Jumping In The Street

    Isolation Reboot #10 - Jumping In The Street

    So…we were meant to review Lucky Number Slevin this week but the problem with making a list at the start of lockdown is that things change after 10 weeks and it’s no longer free on Netflix. So, we had to adjust quickly like the men of action we are and instead we bring you 21 JUMP STREET! Oh, yeah!
    Also, Mark reads us his one-man play (literally all of it), Harry has the makings of a terrible zoo and Oly wants to be a crow. Happy listenings!

    Isolation Reboot #9 - Keeping it real Hush-Hush

    Isolation Reboot #9 - Keeping it real Hush-Hush

    Listeners you are in for a treat because this week it's the turn of one of the greatest films of the last 30 years to get The Movie Men treatment - neo-noir crime classic L.A. Confidential.
    If that isn't enough to get you salivating and your ears twitching, Oly takes us through the twisting, turning passges of his subconscious in Oly's Challenge, Mark trains for the Tour de Yorkshire and we ponder whether rap battles could help address the Oscars' diversity issues.
    Podcasting purity, podcasting on point, podcasting perfection...is not what you'll find here. Could still be fun though...
