By the authority vested in me by the State of This Mess, I now pronounce you podcast and listener. You don’t have to kiss us if you do not want to.
Welcome dear listeners to the Failed Critics podcast, where a hastily arranged ‘movie weddings’ triple bill is the main feature this week. Partly inspired by Steve’s drunken escapades at a wedding reception this past weekend, the team promise that they haven’t prepared an emotional speech that lasts for days. Although I can’t promise that everyone remained sober and civil without offending each other and coming close to blows over one or two selections.
Amongst the wedding chat, there was also time to review indie apocalyptic drama Goodbye World, last year’s Jason Statham action thriller Homefront, and even another discussion about Sin City: A Dame to Kill For – this time in 2D!
There’s no podcast next week, but we’ll be back the week after.
Welcome to this week’s Failed Critics Podcast – it can;t be as bad as the last one!
In this week’s episode the team are reviewing one of the most exciting films to come from the Disney animation studio in years (Frozen), Spike Lee’s return to some kind of form (the remake of Oldboy), and the archetypal Jason Statham film (Homefront).
This week also sees the return of Triple Bill, in which after a run of pretty mediocre remakes we count down our favourite remakes that are definitely worth a watch, and we also find time to discuss the British Independent Film Awards and Disney’s not very stealthy moves to resurrect the Indiana Jones franchise.
Join us next week for the last ‘normal’ podcast of the year, and our review of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Samug.
