Batman vs Superman - Fixed!

Alex and Andrew join me as we use the release of Justice League to look at, and fix, its predecessor, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. We discuss what went wrong with the film, how it impacted Justice League, and look at the areas we would change. Alex throws in a brand new storyline which would not feel out of place in a new DCEU franchise, and it makes a lot of sense. It would change the landscape for a bang average Justice League film. We look at replacements for certain parts, look at what options are available and play some amazing Superman and Batman themed songs. If you ever thought about fixing Batman vs Superman, or you thought it could be better, then take a listen and enjoy! ...

Dead Air Movie Interview

Recorded at Reading Comic Con on Saturday 25th November 2017, I am privileged to have been able to speak to the writer and the director of the brand new British horror/comedy movie, Dead Air; a film about an all-girl punk rock band stuck on a plan with a creature that is a mix between a Gremlin and a Critter. I was also very lucky to have been able to read the script and review it prior to this interview. Check out my wordpress for this review (details on sicoal media). We discuss all aspects of the film, the crowdfunding and the casting, as well as plenty of other tid-bits, including some little known facts and what the future COULD hold for a feature length version of the film. We are then joined by David Schaal, who stars as the pilot in Dead Air, as we talk about his role, how he came to join the project as well as some interesting facts. A fantastic insight into a brilliant film. A must listen for anyone who is interested in Indie films and loves the classic 80's and 90's horror comedy films. This is most definitely the film and podcast episode for you! ...

Stargate SG1

Long time listener Jan joins me as we delve into the world of Stargate SG1; the long running sci-fi show built around the 1994 film Stargate. For those of you who love Stargate, this is perfect for you! For those who have never seen it, spoilers are afoot! But you should definitely watch it. We discuss the Replicators, the Asgard, the Goauld, the great General Hammond, Jackson, Teal'c, Carter and of course, Colonel Jack O'Neil, ol' Macgyver himself, Richard Dean Anderson. We look at our favourite episodes, characters, little known facts and general fanboying over the programme that lasted 10 years, spawned 2 TV films and 2 additional series based upon the SG1 cannon. I also throw in some sweet music found in the series too. Sit back and enjoy..... ...

Build Your Own "Suicide Squad"

Andrew and Alex join me as we battle it out with our own "Suicide Squads". Each of us has a team of 5 characters from any movie ever made; although there are certain rules that we explain in the show, and we must argue the case for each member of our team as to why they would win in a fight, or lose, and then as we each reveal our team, argue how each team would fair against the rest. Once we have fought over our teams, we fight over a "Combined FTVShow Suicide Squad" and pick 1 person per role from our teams to make the super team. All mixed in with some truly awesome music, we all have such fun debating and arguing and generally having a laugh. Have a listen and tell us, who would be in your "Suicide Squad?" #NotJeffGoldblum ...

Interview with Kate Davies-Speak - British Horror Actress

I had the amazing privilege and pleasure to interview British Horror Actress Kate Davies-Speak, who has also starred in the TV Sci-Fi Mini-Series, Horizon. Kate has been in an abundance of British Independent Horror movies and has really found her niche in the roles she plays; who happen to be strong, centered women (not your usual girl-girl characters often portrayed in films), but who also have exceptional story and character arcs, something that Kate says attracts her to the roles she takes. We talk about her busy schedule and filming as well as speak about her upcoming films **_The Barge People_** , **_Escape from Cannibal Farm_** and **_Dead Air_** , a film she decribes as _"gremlins on a plane". _Sounds pretty great to me! Sit back and listen as Kate talks about life as an independent actress and the advice she offers to those looking to follow down the same career path, not just in Horror. A must listen for anyone starting out as an actor or actress. ...

Video Game Movies

If you love, or hate, games & their film adaptations, this is the show for you! Andrew and Alex join me as we go through some of the film adaptations of some very excellent video games. Gamers most definitely did not rejoice with most, if not all, of these. We all dissect some of the most commonly known adaptations, going over plot, dialogue and casting issues, giving our opinions on them, and not holding back either! We all disagree on certain films, and we agree on some others, stating why for each case. And we still done all agree! We also talk about some of the issues facing newer films based on games and where they missed a trick. All thrown in with some absolutely amazing; and iconic in some respects, music. Sit back and enjoy. ...
