Welcome to this week’s Failed Critics Podcast, where once again Carole Petts has stepped into the rather large James-shaped breach at the last minute.
Join us as we discuss Darren Aronosfsky’s biblical epic, Noah, as well as the long-awaited Korean sci-fi classic-in-waiting Snowpiercer. Owen and Steve also come close to tearing out their own eyes as they remember watching Movie 43 like it was ‘Nam.
James promises he will return next week, and considering we’ll be reviewing The Raid 2 we wouldn’t bet against that.
The Failed Critics Podcast is back, and in somewhat lubricated style. Well, one of us is. This week sees the return of Triple bill, and in honour of the recent Sly and Arnie comebacks, we discuss the actors and actresses we would love to see make a big comeback.
Also this week we review new release Hitchcock, James has an early contender for worst film of 2013 in Movie 43, and some of us discover some gems from 2012 that we missed the first time around in Silver Linings Playbook, Perks of Being a Wallflower, and A Royal Affair.
Next week we’ll be reviewing Disney’s nostalgic look at arcade gaming in Wreck-It Ralph, reviewing the best film streaming services on the market, and giving our instant reaction to Sunday night’s BAFTA Awards.
