Podcast Episode's:
Silence of the Lambs
<p>After Bone Tomahawk we do something lighter...oh who am I kidding? It's Silence of the Lambs! A dark and rather literary horror film, this has fantastic performances, great direction and beautiful cinematography. It won every award know to man and we somehow make jokes about it. Because that's how we roll. 47 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Bone Tomahawk
<p>This was a bit of a longer episode than normal, mostly because it's hard to shut Donald up about this film. Bone Tomahawk, a dark and violent horror western that maybe goes too far trying to shock the audience but still delivers solid acting and a simple but well written story. 58 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Big Lebowski
<p>This is the first time that Daniel has seen this 1998 cult classic. On this episode we try to piece together a plot and discuss the various weird merits of this wonderfully odd film. Sorry for the poor quality at the start, we should have fixed this in future episodes. 35 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Nice Guys
<p>This week we review Shane Black's The Nice Guys. A wonderful dark comedy about a hitman and an incompetent private investigator taking on a mysterious murder in the porn industry. 28 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Kung Fu Hustle
<p>Basically it's 35 minutes of Daniel completely gushing over this really good film. This is hard film to sell in some ways as it's so surreal and brilliant but also comes off as slap stick and immature when describing it. 35 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

London has Fallen
<p>One hell of a weird film that promises strong casual racism, painful American Patriotism, and the promise of a 1000 year third Reich (or would it be a fourth Reich now?). In general the film starts of fun, moves into awkward and finishes with flat out painful. 32 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Theory of Everything
<p>British biographical romantic drama film directed by James Marsh and adapted by Anthony McCarten from the memoir "Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen" by Jane Wilde Hawking. This is a serious well acted, well developed, and thoroughly enjoyable film. Beware of Donald's "Rocky" build up at the very end, it's intense! 47 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Video Game Movies
<p>Bit of a different style to this weeks episode, Donald and I have a semi-focused discussion on why the Video Game movie industry produces fairly consistent poor quality movies. 31 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Doom
<p>In this weeks episode we review Doom, the 2005 Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson action...spectacular? The review covers Bras, Celine Dion, Koala Bears, La la Land and occasionally the movie we are meant to be reviewing. 42 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Sicario
<p>Not sure what I was expecting but this wan't it. A very powerful and rather bleak look at the War on Drugs. This film is about a principled FBI agent who is enlisted by a government task force to bring down the leader of a powerful and brutal Mexican Drug Cartel. This film (and the episode) touches on some dangerous topics. 45 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Serpico
<p>Serpico is one hell of a sad film as you get through it. It's basically one mans consistent trials and tribulations through his time in the NYPD. All he wants is to be an honest Cop, but back in the early 1970's that wasn't an easy task. Sorry about the poor audio quality, we are looking to improve it soon. 35 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

America's Sweethearts
<p>In what I believe is Andrew's last podcast with us for a while, we finish his run with a bit of an odd choice of movie, America's Sweethearts. A 2001 Rom-Com with a very strong cast but a rather weak story and Romantic plot. I does have Christopher Walken playing a rather eccentric director. 26 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Blade Runner
<p>In this week's episode we review Blade Runner, one of the greatest science fiction films ever made and of course one Daniel hasn't seen. Instead of the Judge Dredd-esque action film its title suggests we find a deep and thought provoking movie with an awful lot worth discussing. 47 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Lucy
<p>Watch as a script nine years in the making completely wastes some of the best acting talent on offer. This mess of a film has no idea what it wants to be and leans so heavily on obviously fake pseudo-science it hurts. Regardless of all its problems it still managed to make eleven, yes eleven, times its budget back. The mind boggles it really does. 26 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Lobster
<p>Our first episode of 2017 proper, we've decided to tackle another difficult art film - this time, it's the English language debut of the acclaimed Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos, "The Lobster." A clinically observed, pitch-black comedy on the nature of monogamous relationships, we found it easy to admire but difficult to love. 37 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Rogue One
<p>Merry Christmas? Happy New year? Happy Valentines? Yeah sorry everyone for this incredibly late episode. Everything in the universe from internet issues, computer issues, software issues, work issues, etc, etc got in the way of this episode. Also sorry for the Audio quality, you wouldn't believe the editing involved just to get it to this state.</p> <p>Also we all loved the film some more than others. Discussions are had in the show.</p> <p>No spoilers until after the musical break midway through. 1hr long.</p> <p> </p> <p> </p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Django Unchained
<p>Although violent, gory, and at times repulsive, this is one fantastic movie. Quentin Tarantino pulls another classic out of the bag with this wonderful story about two fairly odd characters facing a culture of racism, violence, and unrest. There really is little we could find wrong with this film; a strong stomach is recommended though. 38 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Cinema Paradiso
<p>Tonight we tackle a perennial favourite of international film, the French/Italian co-production Cinema Paradiso. A bildungsroman dealing with the adolescence of a boy growing up in a small Italian village in the wake of World War 2, Daniel was enraptured by the sweet coming-of-age tale, and correspondingly frustrated by Andrew's rather cooler response. 36 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Dark Crystal
<p>On our sudden Jim Henson themed run we look at the rather odd and not particularly great "The Dark Crystal".  One of the first all-puppet-no-people films to hit the big screen. While it does have some good points they are seriously overshadowed by some major failings throughout. 26 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Blood on Satan's Claw
<p>Happy Halloween, everyone! We've got a especially spooky episode for you tonight - we take a look back at a vintage piece of British folk horror, Tigon Productions' The Blood on Satan's Claw from 1970. Despite having some terrific performances, production values and atmosphere to spare (as well as possibly the most metal title in the history of horror films), we find ourselves grappling with its muddy and indistinct plot. 35 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Labyrinth
<p>As a bit of a tribute to the late great David Bowie we are reviewing an iconic film of his, Labyrinth. A piece of puppetry genius the amount of background work to control and organise the huge cast of puppets is staggering. Also it is a bloody good film. 29 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Blowout
<p>On this week's episode we take a look at one of the most acclaimed films in the corpus of Brian De Palma, and one of the films that best encapsultes his highly energetic directorial style in a tribute to Hitchcock and Antonioni. Daniel says he finds the plot dull, causing Andrew to just about blow a gasket. 33min</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

See No Evil, Hear No Evil
<p>RIP Gene Wilder, if we had to pick any film to honour your memory it wouldn't have been this. This was an odd movie, it had one joke that it told in 50 different ways. Some of those ways were funny, many were not. 24 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Foxy Brown
<p>This week, in the interest of expanding our horizons, we take a look at a key film in a genre neither of us have much experience in: '70s Blaxploitation! In spite of the crudity and prurience of 1974's Foxy Brown, we both found ourselves having a thoroughly good time with it, due in no small part to the charisma of Pam Grier. 28mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Titanic
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">On the 15th of April 1912 the RMS Titanic sank on her maiden voyage  to New York. 85 years and $200 million later, James Cameron (with a fantastic team) created the best Romantic-Disaster film based on the same ship. This film held the Box office gross record for 12 years before being supplanted by James Cameron's other massive success, Avatar. 37 mins</span></p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Southpaw
<p>This week, at the request of Andrew's Dad, we take a look at Southpaw, the boxing film that set the internet all aquiver when it saw how shredded Jake Gyllenhaal had suddenly gotten. It's well-executed and compelling stuff, assuming you've never seen a boxing movie before (which, apparently, Daniel hasn't, so he was enthralled). 38 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Ghostbusters 2016
<p>If there's something strange in your neighbourhood,</p> <p>What did we watch (GHOSTBUSTERS!)</p> <p>If it looks like a movie that really isn't good,</p> <p>Then you'd be wrong (GHOSTBUSTERS!)</p> <p> </p> <p>32 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Ghostbuster 2
<p>A fairly well debated theme in the film world is "Is Ghostbusters 2 as good as the first one?". To be honest probably not, but that doesn't necessarily make it a bad film. Join us as we discuss the secret ingredient that seems to be missing. 32 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Panic Room
<p>This week, we take a look at David Fincher's potboiler from 2002, Panic Room, starring Jodie Foster, Jared Leto and Forest Whittaker. It's quite a tense little contraption of a film, albeit maybe one that tries to make too much hay from its admittedly sparse premise. 30mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Ghostbusters
<p>I don't think I know anyone who hasn't seen this movie. Why are we reviewing it then? Because I wanted an excuse to watch it again. A movie that both of us hold very close; Ghostbusters is a blend of perfect comic timing, a fantastic story, and an amazing cast all at the peak of their career. 33 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

8mm
<p>Following a run of episodes devoted to films we've both rather enjoyed, we thought it was high time we saw a film with no significant redeeming features for us both to get good and grouchy at as a pallette-cleanser. What's that you say? A sleazy, sordid little crime thriller starring Nic Cage from the director of Batman and Robin? Don't mind if we do! 40mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Predator
<p>In one of his most iconic roles Arnold Schwarzenegger plays Dutch the leader of a Special Forces team who are tasked with rescuing some hostages from a jungle. Things spiral out of control quickly as they become game for a terrifying alien hunter. A fantastic movie with some classic cinema moments and lines; but is it a Classic or just a really good film? 39 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

What we do in the Shadows
<p>We're back!  Due to a scheduling mix up/Andrew's apparent inability to understand what genre movies are in, we've actually ended up doing our second consecutive vampire-based comedy. This time, it's the New Zealand mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows, a shaggy, sketchy sort of film that nevertheless had us rolling in our chairs with laughter. 35 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

He Never Died
<p>Henry Rollins is not the worlds greatest actor but when you require someone to be an emotionless vampire who always looks kind of annoyed, he's your guy. This was a surprisingly funny, enjoyable and well made movie and we would recommend it to most people. 40mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Upstream Colour
<p>In the wake of Mac and Devin go to High School, Andrew sought a way to exact his revenge on Daniel by means of a punishingly obtuse art film. His plans backfired when we both turned out to rather enjoy Upstream Colour's abstract narrative and challenging imagery. 44mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Intern
<p>When Ben Whittaker gets bored of retirement he joins an online fashion start-up as a senior intern. Jules Ostin is the person behind the start-up who is stretched beyond her limits. Watch as these two unlikely characters connect in this safe, clichéd, but thoroughly enjoyable film. 40 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Voices
<p>This week's subject is a movie neither of us could make heads nor tails of. Marjane Satrapi's "The Voices" has a killer premise and boasts a virtuosic performance from Ryan Reynolds as a man whose pets command him to kill - which makes it all the more unfortunate that it seems to be so tonally inconsistent and confused. 34 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Equilibrium
<p>This week we look at another box office bomb, Equilibrium. A fairly standard movie where Christian Bale impersonates Keanu Reeves and battles a totalitarian emotionless system. This really is a complete rip off of the matrix. Some good fight scenes though plus this movie uses a professional dog impersonator. 40 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

We need to talk about Kevin
<p>This week's movie episode, we discuss a movie as masterfully put together as it is harrowing and difficult to watch. Lynne Ramsay's "We Need to Talk About Kevin," adapted from Lionel Shriver's novel of the same name, boasts terrific direction and performances in service of a deeply discomfiting character study. 34 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Mac and Devin go to High School
<p>Snoop Dogg is a popular face of a particular culture. A well established rapper and icon but what is he like as an actor? Awful, but he's not alone. He and Wiz Khalifa drag the audience through a hour and a quarter of terrible acting, awful script, and horrid misogyny.</p> <p>Listen to this weeks podcast as Daniel mostly laughs and Andrew mostly cries through this abomination of a movie. 30 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
<p>On this week's episode, we cast our gaze back to the twilight years of the studio system and one of the most pleasant and enjoyable westerns ever made. We both found ourselves entirely in love with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, in particular its iconic pairing of Paul Newman and Robert Redford. 28 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Starman
<p>Another episode, another attempt from Andrew to win Daniel over to the cult of John Carpenter! This week, we're looking at his surprisingly warm and humane sci-fi romance "Starman" from 1984, a film that met with success in the post-Star Wars sci-fi boom with its Spielbergian echoes of E.T. and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. 35mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Kung Pow, Enter the Fist
<p>There are exceptionally few times when a random movie pick will leave you in tears of laughter. This is one such time. Andrew and I have never really encountered a movie like this before.It's main premise is to take a serious old martial arts film (Tiger and Crane fist), and use ridiculous dubbing and green screened characters to create a hilarious parody of old Hong Kong Martial arts films. Words sort of fail us as we try to convey the sort of odd but brilliant humour this movie is full of. 35 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Apocalypto
<p>After the larky Disney animated comedy version of Mesoamerican civilisation last week, we decided it was time on this week's episode to have the pendulum swing as far as possible in the opposite direction, with our discussion of Mel Gibson's unflinchingly brutal Mayan pursuit movie Apocalypto. We found a problematic and flawed film that nevertheless has a lot to admire about it. 36 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Emperor's New Groove
<p>In the last decade or two 2D animation has really died out. Disney was the leader in this style  but on the back of Frozen's HUGE success I suspect they too have moved on.</p> <p>One of their final films in 2D animation, The Emperor's New Groove, is one hell of a film to end on. Fantastic characters, cast, and story come together to make this a film that both of us would recommend to everyone. A must see even if you aren't a big fan of animation. 38 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Big Trouble in Little China
<p>This week's episode brings with it a spot of conflict! Andrew discovers to his horror and dismay, that his beloved goofy 80's action-fantasy-comedy Big Trouble in Little China left Daniel utterly cold. We spend half an hour trying to arrive at some sort of a reconciliation. 33min</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Shawshank Redemption
<p>If you go to pretty much any popular list like "100 greatest movies" or "Movies to watch before you die", you are fairly likely to find this movie in the top 10.</p> <p>This film is incredibly popular and for good reason too. An entrancing story, wonderful characters, and brilliant cast is topped of by narration by Morgan Freeman himself. What more can you really need in a film? 44 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Spaceballs (WARNING AUDIO PROBLEMS)
<p>100th EPISODE SPECIAL! Yes folks, we've actually made 100 of these now. Where does the time go? To celebrate, we wanted to do a show that encapsulated everything we love about Two Friends Watch - which, for starters, would have to involve Star Wars. Unfortunately, we seem to have run out of Star Wars movies, so instead we thought we'd tackle Mel Brooks' inspired 1987 parody of the franchise, spaceballs. And of course, we roped Donald into it again, because we wouldn't do anything Star Wars related without him around. Come and join us for our 100th episode celebrations. 42 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Troll Hunter
<p>We often give "found footage" movie a hard time. Most times they come off as cheap, rushed and lazy. The biggest criticism being "why is the bloody camera still running during all of this!?".</p> <p>Troll Hunter is a rare gem. It uses the shaky-cam effect to further the films atmosphere; detract you from the less than perfect special effects; and lull you in to a sense of realism. All of this is topped of with wonderful locations and enjoyable characters. 34 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Invasion of the Body Snatchers
<p>On this week's episode, we take a look at one of the all-time great remakes. The 1978 version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers does justice to, and arguably improves upon, the original Don Siegel classic, featuring stellar performances from a top notch cast and some of the creepiest ever sound design. 39 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Flame and Citron
<p>Two young people once read a book called <em>They Saw It Happen.</em> One was the director Ole Christian Madsen and the other was the writer Lars K. Andersen. After they met and realised they shared a passion for the story of Flame and Citron, they spent years researching these WW2 resistance heroes to create this wonderful film.</p> <p>In this weeks episode Andrew and I look at another lesser known film and wonder why people don't make more movies on subjects they are passion about. 37 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Beasts of No Nation
<p>On this week's episode, we take a look at the movie that bucked the traditional distribution system for movies and emerged all the more noteworthy for it, but it's a remarkable film no matter how you come to watch it. Cary Joji Fukunaga's Beasts of No Nation is a sobering look at the plight of African child soldiers, made all the more powerful by the unsentimental direction and top-shelf performances. 39 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

RIPD
<p>I remember waiting eagerly for this movie to be released. What I watched was concentrated disappointment. There were some good moments in this film but as a whole I really didn't care for it. 39 mins</p>

Star Wars - The Force Awakens
<p><strong>So an important point to note, THIS PODCAST HAS A SPOILER SECTION. It is well marked and you are well warned when we will move into it. It occurs around the 25:30 mark.</strong></p> <p> </p> <p>Merry Christmas everybody! As our present to you all, we've made good on the promise we've been making all year and done a special, all-singing, all-dancing bumper episode on the film one everyone's mind right now - Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens! We're joined once again by our good friend Donald Carrick adding his thoughts to the mix. 1.5 <strong>hrs</strong> long</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The 7th Theatrical Star Wars Movie
<p>There's a new Star Wars movie just now hitting theatres, and everyone's terribly excited about it. Well, we watched the seventh Star Wars feature film, and we all agreed it's garbage - deplorably crass, mercenary bullshit that plumbs depths of pointlessness even the prequel trilogy never fathomed. We dare you to disagree. 52 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Holy Water
<p>A farce is something that I would consider difficult to get perfect. Comedy is such a diverse and varied taste that it would be nearly impossible to suit everyone. This film is a bad farce. Missed jokes, slow punchlines, and a very weak story has resulted in a movie that very few people would like. 31 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Chasing Amy
<p>Taking a break from the testosterone-fuelled insanity of The Warriors last week, we change things up with a rather earnest and sentimental comedy, albeit one livened up by Kevin Smith's trademark flair for vulgarity. We enjoyed Chasing Amy a lot, although some of its treatment of LGBT issues, which were perhaps more transgressive in 1997, now seem rather dated. 49 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Warriors
<p>A classic of its time, The Warriors had to contend with real gang violence during filming. Gang problems pursued the movie into the cinema with many gang going to watch the movie upon release and fighting other gangs inside the cinema.</p> <p>Although this movie really hasn't aged well in certain aspects, it has stood the test of time to remain an action classic that can still be enjoyed today. 35 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

When Worlds Collide (1951)
<p>On this week's Two Friends Watch, we take a gander at the oldest film we've covered on the show to date: 1951's George Pal-produced "When Worlds Collide." Although very much a relic of its time and somewhat unreceptive to modern standards of criticism, we found there was some considerable entertainment value to be had. 46 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Without a Paddle
<p>I stumbled upon this movie many years ago and although it has a few redeeming features overall it's a bad movie. It centres around a group of three friends who go of on a wacky adventure to find some lost treasure. One can't get a girlfriend, one can't keep a girlfriend, and one can't let go of his youth. Watch as only two out of the three character arcs actually get resolved throughout this rubbish film. 25 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Hunt for Red October
<p>On this week's episode, we take a look at one on the best action thrillers ever to feature almost no action: 1990's "The Hunt for Red October," which may actually be the last time Sean Connery was cool. 38 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Mist
<p>A fairly good horror film with a few minor let downs but overall fantastic. The film is full of little shout-outs to Stephen King and some great terror and fear throughout. 42 mins</p> <p>INTRO AND OUTRO</p> <p>"Pop Goes the Weasel" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) <br />Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0<br />http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/</p> <p>"Dance of Deception" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) <br />Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0<br />http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/</p> <p> </p> <p>SPOILER BREAK</p> <p>"Seven March" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) <br />Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0<br />http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/</p> <p>SCREAMS AND SOUND EFFECTS FROM: http://www.freesfx.co.uk</p>

The Conformist
<p>In an attempt to bring a dash of high culture to Two Friends Watch, Andrew elects to watch Bernardo Bertolucci's famous anti-fascist classic The Conformist. It turns out we're in over our head and neither of us have any idea what we're on about - and we flail around for a while looking for something insightful to say. 38 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Waterworld
<p>A disaster of a film for everyone from the cast and crew to the directors and investors. Waterworld has long been considered a terrible movie for many reasons but Andrew and I work hard in this week's episode to find the enjoyment and brilliance hidden deep within this movie. 42 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

A Separation
<p>This week's episode of Two Friends Watch: we tackle the 2011 drama from Iran that swept up accolades left and right, affording Iranian cinema a previously unprecedented level of exposure in the west. We both agree that although it begins slowly, it eventually reveals a compelling scenario of moral complexity and ambiguity, beautifully acted and directed. 48 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Happy Gilmore
<p>A fairly straight forward film about a manic ex-hockey-player-wannabe who intimidates people at golf until he has enough money to save a house. 33mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Duellist
<p>With The Martian due out this week and winning plaudits from left and right, we thought we'd take the time to revisit Ridley Scott's debut feature from 1977. We found The Duellists to stand high in the famous director's body of work, a must for anyone with an appreciation for period pieces. 39 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Oblivion
<p>Good morning everyone. This week we are looking at the 2013 movie Oblivion, an interesting end-of-the-world alien-apocalypse story. Although this movie isn't great I think that the poor reception during it's initial release was mainly based on general public opinion of Tom Cruise at the time. Which is a shame really as a movie should be based on its own merits rather than that of a single individual within it. 36 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

General Chat - The Movie Industry in the Near Future
<p>This podcast was born from the short time Andrew and I worked together on a radio show at uni. One thing we had in the radio show which is slightly diminished in the podcast is the amount of general chat we had. Thoughts, opinions about the world, nonsense, that sort of thing. To make up to this we are dedicating this whole episode to just chatting about the movie industry in general. No review this week just our thoughts and opinions about where the movie industry is heading. 38 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

Star Wars - Return of the Jedi
<p>And so our hexalogy of Star Wars retrospective reviews draws to a close with Andrew and Donald's thoughts on the end of the original series, 1983's "Return of the Jedi." The finale isn't generally regarded with the kind of unanimous, rapturous acclaim as its predecessors, but we make the case for its being worthy of consideration alongside either of them. 40 mins</p>
Listen: podcast - audio/mpeg

The Land Before Time
<p>Released before either of us were born, this movie is still one of our most memorable childhood movies. That being said this movie is seriously intense for an infants film and if Don Bluth had his way it would have been even more horrific in places. 30 mins</p>

Star Wars - The empire strikes back
<p>The second of this wonderful trilogy (trilogy at time of writing because the prequals suck and the new movie isn't out yet).</p> <p><span style="color: #373e4d; font-family: helvetica, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; line-height: 15.3599996566772px; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: #f6f7f8;">We return once again to the welcoming busom of Star Wars, this time to talk about the inimitable The Empire Strikes Back - whether you consider there to be six or only three true Star Wars films, it matters not - this one is the best, and we'll brook no argument. Here's why</span></p> <p><span style="color: #373e4d; font-family: helvetica, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; line-height: 15.3599996566772px; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: #f6f7f8;">36 mins</span></p>

The Core
<p class="MsoNormal">Don't get me wrong, this movie isn't very good but from it came one very good outcome, The Science and Entertainment Exchange. This is a board designed to foster collaborations between scientists and the entertainment industry and although the core wasn't solely responsible for it's creation, it is one the main culprits.</p> <p> </p> <p class="MsoNormal">Other than that this movie wasn't too bad. It's your basic disaster/end-of-the-world movie but underground instead of space. 31mins</p>

Donald rejoins us, muscling through the influence of heavy painkillers to add his voice to our enthusiasm. 45 mins</span></p>

Monkeybone
<p>In the year and a half that Andrew and I have been running this show I believe that this film is one of the worst things we have ever had to watch. It is boring, offensive, uninteresting and complete garbage. This movie has so much wrong with it that we honestly didn't even know where to start tearing this movie apart. The bar for worst movie has been lower so far by this movie that I believe it will be a long time before another film even comes close to it. 40 mins</p>

Ninja - Shadow of a Tear
<p><span style="color: #373e4d; font-family: helvetica, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; line-height: 15.3599996566772px; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: #f6f7f8;">NINJAS! NINJAS EVERYWHERE! There's one behind you right now! In all seriousness, fans of highly choreographed martial arts action owe it to themselves to catch this collaboration between director Isaac Florentine and B-movie legend Scott Adkins - we both loved it in spite of - perhaps even partly because of - its paucity of plot.</span></p>

John Dies At The End
<p>Andrew and I are fair fans of zany and mind bending films but this may have been a bit much for both of us. A very peculiar movie with strong influences from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I think with a larger budget and a bit more work on the script this movies would have been a real gem. 33 mins</p>

The Magnificent Seven
<p>Best known for its iconic score, this story has been retold in so many different styles and genres. It's a fairly sad film in many ways but it has an intensity that many modern films can only imitate. 39mins</p>

Batman (1966)
<p>With all the recent chatter about Batman vs Superman we thought we would look at Batman's début movie. A truly fun-filled and wonderful movie full of daft physical comedy and ridiculous word play. It's nothing like the more modern takes on Batman but it's not trying to be. It's light hearted and enjoyable throughout.</p> <p>The maker's of the movie even state at the start:</p> <p>"To them [Enemies of Crime], And to the lovers of adventure, Lovers of pure Escapism, Lovers of unadulterated entertainment, Lovers of the ridiculous and bizarre--</p> <p>To funlovers everywhere--</p> <p>This picture is respectfully dedicated!"</p> <p>We couldn't say it better ourselves. 37 mins</p>

Into the Wild
<p><span style="color: rgb(55, 62, 77); font-family: helvetica, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; line-height: 15.3599996566772px; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: rgb(246, 247, 248);">On this week's episode, we're discussing Into The Wild, a feature based on a true story that won a lot of acclaim from critics and audiences alike back in 2007. Based on a couple of years in the life of Christopher McCandless, a young man who, in the early 90s, left behind a comfortable and plush lifestyle to wander the highways and byways of America. We found it intriguing, although maybe not as insightful into its subject as it sets out to be.</span></p> <p>40 mins.</p>

Season of the Witch
<p>There are many movies starring Nic Cage that are bad, this isn't a new thing. The suprise of this movie is that it's bad bad. Other than casting there is nothing to like about this movie. Which is a shame really because a team-up between Ghost Rider (Nic Cage) and Hellboy (Ron Perlman) should really be amazing. 35 mins</p>

Man of Steel
<p><span style="color: #373e4d; font-family: helvetica, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; line-height: 15.3599996566772px; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: #f6f7f8;">Against his better judgement, Andrew decided that he wanted to talk (on the Internet, no less) about the superhero movie responsible for perhaps the most flame wars in recent memory. Accordingly, our discussion of 2013's Man of Steel was decidedly conflicted. 46 mins</span></p>

Tremors
<p>In 1990 Kevin Bacon stared in a movie which he believed at the time to be his career low. Tremors turned out to be a fantastic cult classic which is still loved to this day. 37 mins</p>

The Taking of Pelham 123
<p><span style="color: #373e4d; font-family: helvetica, arial, 'lucida grande', sans-serif; font-size: 12px; line-height: 15.3599996566772px; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: #f6f7f8;">We turn the clock back this episode for a look at a vintage 70s thriller, The Taking of Pelham One Two Three. Though you might be familiar with the mediocre Travolta/Washington remake from a few years back, this original is a taut, fast paced hostage-situation potboiler that serves equally well as a time capsule of the period in which it was made, and we both thoroughly enjoyed it.</span></p>

Glory
<p>This week we look at a not greatly known movie, Glory. It follows the first ever all black Platoon in the US Civil War. A fantastic set of memorable characters played by an amazing cast, many of who were still early (ish) in their careers. 37 mins</p>

Blue Ruin

We're both looking forward to what director Jeremy Saulnier has cooking next. 40 mins</span></p>

Van Helsing
<p>Both Andrew and I were pretty big fans of this movie when we were younger. That made the disappointment all the worse during the revisit to this childhood favourite. It's still ok in places but overall it isn't as good as we remembered. 39 mins</p>

Revenge of the Sith
<p><span style="color: rgb(55, 62, 77); font-family: helvetica, arial, 'lucida grande', sans-serif; font-size: 12px; line-height: 15.3599996566772px; white-space: pre-wrap; background-color: rgb(246, 247, 248);">Donald rejoins Daniel and Andrew once more for the epic conclusion to our epic trilogy of reviews of George Lucas' epic trilogy of prequels to his first epic trilogy of epic epics. Revenge of the Sith is broadly considered to be a step up from the films preceding it, and we all agree with that sentiment... although just how good "best of the prequels" is is the subject of some contention...</span></p> <p>50 mins</p>

Talaash
<p>A great film with very strong character development and several rich and enjoyable side stories. The main story while straight forward is a little dull but there is so much more going on in this film that it's barely a problem. For those of you who are put off Indian movies because of the singing and dancing, this movie has about two or three straight forward songs that last only a few minutes each. 43 mins</p>

Star Wars - Phantom Menace
<p>Unfortunatly Daniel wasn't available for this one. A terrible film in most aspects with one big Jar-Jar sized problem throughout. 51mis</p>

Reign of Fire
<p>When a hoard of ferocious fire breathing dragons emerge from deep within the earth only King Leonidas, Batman and Rust Cohle can stop them. This to-the-point movie is full of massive plot holes but regardless is great to watch. 35 mins</p>

What Dreams may come
<p>We do seem to really favour Robin Williams movies. This week we tackle a movie that is both uplifting and mildly depressing in very different ways. A fantastic story if not a bit odd and confusing in places. 45 mins</p>

The Ninth Gate
<p>A movie that tries it's hardest to be exciting but unfortunately it was still not exciting enough. A good plot, cast and atmosphere but it doesn't really gel together as well as we had hoped. 32 mins.</p>

Shutter Island
<p>When Teddy and his partner Chuck arrive at an island hospital for the criminally insane, they didn't know that they were in for a life changing experience. A fun movie with a great story and cast. 46 mins</p>

Cool World
<p class="MsoNormal">Once again studio politics crush another great story. This disaster of a movie is the remnants of what could have been an incredible story. There are few attributes of this movie that we could praise. 44mins</p>

The Fantastic Four (1994)
<p>A movie that many agree was made purely to hold onto the rights by the studio. This was painful to watch with nearly every aspect of it both disappointing and boring. Still, we had a great laugh reviewing this one. 44mins</p>

The Ugly Truth
<p>A movie that seems to show that under the advice from of chauvinistic shallow man a woman who is stripped of personality and character can get the man she wants. There seemed to be very little rom and com in this movie. 33 mins</p>

The Fountain
<p>Three stories all following a similar theme of one man's quest to save his beloved. The first story is captivating, the second is depressing and the third is nonsense. 38 mins.</p>
