Failed Critics Podcast: Oscars That Never Were – Triple Bill

We’re back for a bit. No biggie. Just Steve Norman, Owen Hughes and Paul Field, hanging around recording a random triple bill podcast trying to ride the crest of interest that usually comes during the Oscars season.

Resurrected from the near dead, the Failed Critics revive an old quiz – not an old quiz format, literally they replay an old quiz – and chat about what they’ve been watching lately. Paul revels in riotous horror Freehold, Owen revisits 10 Cloverfield Lane, and Steve rubbishes a bunch of Netflix Originals.

In the triple bill section, there’s chaos, confusion and regular shambolic behaviour as each critic picks a movie that missed that all important award nod from the Academy throughout history.

Don’t get too excited; this doesn’t actually signal a return to a weekly format for FC. But we’re on 288 episodes now. You’ll probably see us appear in your feed at 12 other points throughout the year as we push for the magic 300, so don’t unsubscribe just yet!

Failed Critics Unplugged: Live in Oxford (Again)

Happy New Year and all that jazz. We’re back from our end of year celebrations (sort of) as hosts Steve Norman and Owen Hughes head to a pub in Oxford to chat movies and TV with Character Unlock’s Andrew Brooker.

Recorded over a month ago in the same pub as our last live podcast, the trio run through what they’ve been watching lately, as well as a triple bill giving insight into what has caught their eye over the past year at the cinema, on Netflix and on the goggle box.
