The King is dead retired, long live the King, King and Queen!
With the James-era officially ending with our previous podcast, we begin anew with two new release reviews. We did consider making you wait nine years for us to get back together, inspired by Robert Rodriguez & Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, but we just couldn’t wait that long to tell you about it. We also found time to review Luc Besson’s latest sci-fi thriller Lucy – and we didn’t need to reach 100% brain capacity in order to do it either.
The team also find time to talk about a selection of films shown at last weekend’s FrightFest (including The Den, All Cheerleaders Die and Doc of the Dead), Icelandic penis museum documentary The Final Member, utterly terrible Disney movie Condorman and the, er, dire Danny Dyer movie Run For Your Wife.
Join us next week for more reviews and less Danny Dyer chat (probably?)
It had to happen sometime, and it’s taken 91 episodes, but this is possibly the most shambolic podcast ever committed to the Internet. And for us, that’s saying something. Owen manages to confuse two very different TV programmes, Steve doesn’t watch the one film he was meant to, and while trying to make a very important point James manages to forget the name of a film, the actress in it, and what she said.
It’s not a complete bust of an episode though, and there are reviews of the Carrie remake, Palm d’Or winner Blue is the Warmest Colour, and Parkland. James also talks about the best and the worst films he’s seen so far this year.
Join us next week for reviews of Homefront and Oldboy.
