Failed Critics Podcast: Pod Handed

mob handed

Awright, settle down you slags. The Failed Critics Podcast is here, keep your hair on you bunch of Berkley Hunt’s. Influenced by the paedo-hunting vigilante killers in the expectedly awful geezer-movie Mob Handed, hosts Steve Norman and Owen Hughes are up to no good with their partner in crime, Callum Petch.

As well as a full-on dismantling of the aforementioned since-proclaimed “worst movie” that Owen and Steve have ever made each other watch (nudging out the likes of Kill Keith, United Passions and Spice World), we also cover the news this week that the animators on Sausage Party have been dicked on. Or.. weinered on? Anyway. We also have reviews of the first ever entry into the expanded DC universe* with Wes Craven’s 1980’s cult creature feature, Swamp Thing (*that’s a joke), the bizarre / wonderful / strange / odd / quirky / surreal / [delete as applicable] film The Lobster, plus Callum deals a blow for nostalgia as it turns out that Highlander isn’t actually all that good, really.

Main releases covered this week also include four new films. The latest YA novel to be adapted into a movie sees Callum find a glimmer of hope in Nerve; Owen rips chunks out of shark + girl film The Shallows; Pete’s Dragon is just a one decade too late for this Failed Critic; and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is fine but find out why Hollywood really needs to just stop this now.

Join Owen again next week sans Steve, with Paul Field stepping in the hosts chair and Andrew Brooker joining the pair for a triple bill on the films that have frightened them the most.
