Failed Critics Podcast: FC Awards 2017

Another year down, and another awards ceremony concluded. Hosts Steve Norman and Owen Hughes are joined by a returning Paul Field to produce another quality end-of-year quiz, and to help us round-up the results from the Failed Critics Awards 2017.

Our huge thanks go out to everybody who took the time to submit nominations in the various categories. We’ll be posting the results as a list later in the week, but for now we hope you have a great New Year!

We’ll return soon for another special live episode recorded in Oxford earlier this year.

Top 5 Films of 2017 (So Far)

We’ve reached the point in the year where it’s safe to start legitimately putting together a rough outline for your top 10 films of the year.

Failed Critics Podcast: Get In!

Listen. Focus on the rain. Can you hear it? Find the rain. Now, once you’ve found it… sink into the pod!

Yes, this week’s main review on the Failed Critics Podcast is the chilling black comedy/horror/psychological thriller, Get Out. Let Steve Norman, Owen Hughes and Tony Black lull you into a false sense of security and then fill your head with nonsense for the following 60 minutes.

Things temporarily go all weird on the latest episode as the team try to have a somewhat sensible conversation about the representation of black characters in mainstream media following Thandie Newton’s recent comments.

However, the regular What We’ve Been Watching section soon brings a sense of normality to proceedings as reviews of Simon Amstell’s mockumentary, Carnage, friend of the podcast Jonathan Sothcott’s We Still Kill The Old Way, our fifth best film of last year Green Room, and rebooted comedy Ghostbusters all feature.

Join us again next week for a mighty morphin’ good time.
