    Ep 133: Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    Ep 133: Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    In ep 133 of The Movie Robcast, Robs Daniel & Wallis suit up, fire up their proton packs and try not to cross the streams as they deliver their verdict on Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Will it please audiences more than the little loved 2016 reboot, or is this just another case of 80s nostalgia swallowing its own tail? It’s by Jason Reitman, who’s dad Ivan directed the original classic movie. Does he make his dad proud?

    There is a clearly signposted spoiler section that kicks off at 22.00. If you’ve not seen the film yet, you’re good up to there, but check it out before listening to the rest. We’d feel frightfully bad if we knew we’d spoilt any of the film’s surprises.

    Ep 132: The Tragedy of Macbeth (Final LFF Wrap-Up)

    Ep 132: The Tragedy of Macbeth (Final LFF Wrap-Up)

    Hello and welcome to The Movie Robcast. This is our final London Film Festival wrap-up episode, and thank you to all those listeners who stuck with us on a review of this year’s LFF. To end, we look at Joel Coen’s The Tragedy of Macbeth, starring Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand.

    At 11.15 we give a quick summary of our favourite movies from the festival, and to finish, at 14.30 Rob Wallis reviews Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Venom wasn’t an LFF film, but we’ll always squeeze a superhero movie review into our podcasts somewhere!

    So, let’s get to it, on the double bubble… bubble, toil and trouble…

    Ep 131: The Power of the Dog, King Richard, Bendetta and more! (LFF Wrap-Up #3)

    Ep 131: The Power of the Dog, King Richard, Bendetta and more! (LFF Wrap-Up #3)

    Hello and welcome to The Movie Robcast. This is our penultimate London Film Festival wrap-up episode, and it’s a bumper one.

    At 2:55 we review the new Benedict Cumberbatch film The Power of the Dog.

    At 11.20 we give our thoughts on the Cannes award winning and hard-hitting drama Nitram.

    At 20.05 Rob Wallis reviews Maggie Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut The Lost Daughter, starring Olivia Colman and Jesse Buckley.

    At 22.00 Rob Daniel tries to describe Dashcam, the outrageous new horror movie from Rob Savage, who splashed onto the scene last with the excellent frightener Host.

    Back to Rob W at 25.40 for Terence Davies’ new movie Benediction, starring Jack Lowden and Peter Calpadi.

    Sticking with Rob W, at 27.55 he discusses Petite Maman, directed by Celine Sciamma, who previously made Portrait of a Lady on Fire.

    At 29.55 both Robs have fun reviewing Paul Verhoeven’s wonderful nunsploitation movie Benedetta.

    Finally, at 35.00 the podcasting duo warm their hearts recounting King Richard, the film about Serene and Venus Williams’ father that we think is going to nab Smith that Best Actor Oscar.

    Oh, we all give a quick review of Halloween Kills at 10.50. Spoiler: it’s total rubbish.

    Phew! It’s a bumper, mixed bag then. We hope you enjoy, and we’ll see you next time for the final LFF episode, in which we’ll look at Joel Coen’s The Tragedy of Macbeth, starring Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand.

    Ep 130: Last Night in Soho & Titane (LFF Wrap-Up #2)

    Ep 130: Last Night in Soho & Titane (LFF Wrap-Up #2)

    Episode 130 of The Movie Robcast continues our coverage from The London Film Festival. We go to the darker side of the capital with Last Night in Soho, starring Thomasin Mckenzie, Anya-Taylor Joy and Matt Smith. What do we think of Edgar Wright’s latest movie? Is it sipping champagne in The Shard, or barking up a dodgy hotdog just off the Charing Cross Road? Or simply a pleasant night out eating a good burger in that Giraffe on the Southbank?

    After that, we stay dark with Titane, Julie Ducournau’s Palme D’or winning auto-erotic, serial killer body horror. We see a lot of David Cronenberg, J.G. Ballard and Tsukamoto Shin'ya in there. But, do we like it? Listen in to find out.

    Ep 129: The Harder They Fall & Spencer (LFF Wrap-Up #1)

    Ep 129: The Harder They Fall & Spencer (LFF Wrap-Up #1)

    Episode 129 of The Movie Robcast is the first instalment of our London Film Festival review. To keep it to a manageable length we’ve decided to break it down into multiple episodes this year. Kicking off proceedings is Jeymes Samuel’s lively Western, The Harder They Fall, starring Jonathan Majors, Idris Elba, Regina King, Lakeith Stanfield, Zazie Beetz and Delroy Lindo. The film is a strong contender for best ensemble cast of the year.

    At 19.00 we then move onto Spencer, in which Kristen Stewart channels the spirit of Diana, Princess of Wales. Directed by Pablo Larraín, whose previous film Jackie was one of Rob D’s pick of the 2010s, this is another off-kilter and unusual biopic. The Robs liked it, but with reservations…

    Ep 128: Dune

    Ep 128: Dune

    Episode 128 of The Movie Robcast whisks you away to the faraway world of Arrakis for our review of Denis Villeneuve’s Dune. Can Villeneuve succeed where David Lynch failed back in 1984, and land Frank Herbert’s epic novel, the Great White Whale of sci-fi literature? Well, he has certainly assembled an impressive cast, including Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa, Javier Bardem and more.

    No discussion of a Dune adaptation would be complete without also talking about Lynch’s original or Alejandro Jodorowsky’s pie-in-the-sky vision for Herbert’s novel. Or a brief detour into British sitcom from the 1980s, specifically Terry and June.
