Failed Critics Podcast: Nice Matte

green room

Hello listeners, what’s your boggle? We wouldn’t normally try to conjure up the image of a painted wall with the episode title, but we were somewhat shambolic this week, even by our own standards. With host Steve Norman suffering from agonising tooth ache during much of the recording, Owen Hughes and guests Andrew Brooker and Tony Black ran amok.

A new round of the quiz kicked the show off, pitting Steve against Brooker and Tony, with Owen in the quizmaster’s chair, before the group discussed the potential Fantastic Four sequel and latest Assassins Creed trailer. As ever, What We’ve Been Watching followed, as Owen revisited 90’s classic Demolition Man, Brooker spread the love for recently cancelled sitcom Undateable, and Tony returned to Superman.. er… Returns.

Only two new releases made their way onto the podcast. Brutal thriller Green Room was the main feature, but as penance for not seeing anything at all in the last seven days, Steve still attempted to review The Angry Birds Movie without having watched a single second of it. Luckily Brooker had seen it and was able to clarify a few minor points!

Before we leave you, we have just one request. No, it isn’t that you should review us on iTunes, especially not after this week’s shambles! But instead, if you’re on Facebook, sling us a quick vote in New Media Europe’s Best UK Podcast Award 2016, for which we have been nominated. One click of a check-box is all that’s required and will help us out enormously. Thank you! http://newmediaeurope.com/2016/nmeu-awards-2016-stage-1/

Failed Critics Podcast: Superman/Man of Steel Special

christopher-reeve-supermanIs it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s three nitwits holding court on all things Superman! In this week’s extra-special bumper podcast (weighing in at over two hours) we celebrate the release of Zack Snyder’s reboot of the Superman series, Man of Steel. Prepare for it to kick off as two of the team nearly come to blows over their experience and expectations of the movie.

As well as a review of the film, we look under the bonnet and get our hands dirty in an extended Spoiler Alert look at Man of Steel. Not only that, but we discuss every Superman film ever made in What We’ve Been Watching, and choose our favourite performances by the Man of Steel main cast in Triple Bill.

Join us next week as we review new releases World War Z, Now You See Me, and This is the End.
