Welcome to this week’s Failed Critics podcast, please excuse us if our heads were a little bigger, and our chests puffed out a little more after finding out that our download figures have gone through the roof (well, the roof of a kennel perhaps). We’d like to welcome all of our new listeners, and hope you’ll stick around.
This week sees us review the latest installment of Peter Jackson’s latest sojourn to Middle Earth, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. James gets emotional (obviously) watching The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Steve gets festive watching Arthur Christmas, and Owen gets scared watching The Host (the Korean creature feature, not the Twilight-style alien thing from earlier this year).
We also discuss the Golden Globe nominations, as well as taking it in turns to plead for votes for our favourite films in this years Failed Critics Awards. Don’t forget to vote!
This is the last regular podcast of the year, so have a good Christmas, and we’ll be back on New Year’s Eve with our review of the year, and the results of the poll.
