Hopefully by now you will have caught up with DCEU’s latest attempt at salvaging a flailing franchise with Justice League. Hosts Steve Norman and Owen Hughes run their beady eye over Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon’s ensemble superhero flick, as well as chatting about some post-apocalyptic fiction and reviewing their favourite cough sweets. Yum.
You are now about to witness the strength of street knowledge as four white boys from the UK discuss N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton on this week’s Failed Critics Podcast. Joining crazy mother-flipper Steve Norman and another crazy arsed bad mother-flipper Owen Hughes on our latest episode is Andrew Brooker, a dangerous mother-flipper raising hell, and controlling the automatic is Mike Shawcross.
We’re not entirely as gangster as you might expect, believe it or not, as we kick off the podcast with a quiz and a short tribute to Wes Craven. We manage to express ourselves in a more dignified manner befitting four dudes sat around in their pants on Skype, late on a Tuesday night, during reviews of video-game adaptation Hitman: Agent 47, Nic Cage thriller Joe, the pilot episode of Fear the Walking Dead and James Cullen Bressack’s indie-horror To Jennifer.
On top of all that, we have a round-up of the good, the bad and the ugly that came out of this year’s Film4 FrightFest. Get your notepad and pen ready as Mike reveals everything you should be adding to your watch list over the next 12 months – including These Final Hours, Turbo Kid, We Are Still Here, Bait and loads more! I’m not exaggerating. LOADS more.
Join us again the same time next week as Paul ‘Slice’ Field returns to mull over No Escape and The Transporter Refuelled.
