Grim Dark Films & TV Shows

I am joined by long time listener, and good friend of mine, Jan Hryckowian as we go through our favourite Grim Dark Films & TV Shows. Grim Dark is that bleak, dead dystopian future that we are always warned about, and many can forsee, but never believe will happen. Jan & I go through each one and talk about them, giving our thoughts on them and what is good about them. We go into detail about the differences in how each one varies but are all similar in the over-arching storylines. We throw in some curveballs and some little knowns as well as go for the big guns, mixing in some excellent music from our chosen films & tv shows. I hope you enjoy! ...

Horror Films

Matt, the Station Manager of Hereward Radio, joins me as we discuss some of the best horror movies made, comparing them to newer, more recent movies, discussing our favourite killers and what makes a good horror film. I give the results of my Twitter poll (which was a surprise, I must say) and we also talk about where more recent horror films go wrong. We discuss the "golden age" of horror films and I give my Top 5 villains. We also dissect a few of the films, throw in some little known or forgotten horrors and give our opinions on some of the plots in the films. Mixed in with our free flowing chat are some amazing quotes and music from horror films throughout the years. ...

What Happened To Will Smith?

Joined by Alex, we both attempt to answer a burning question in my mind: What Happened To Will Smith? The once stellar action hero of Bad Boys, Independence Day & Men In Black has suffered badly at the Box Office over recent years and has seemingly fallen off the radar in big smash hits (this includes Suicide Squad by the way, but thats another podcast altogether!) so we try to get to the root of this, talking about his early work, more recent films. the issues they have faced and his lacklustre "serious" roles that have left myself and a few others a little underwhelmed at his apparent lack of versatility in the films. We look at what he could do to bring his stock back up to the heights of old and, of course, play some classic Will Smith tracks! Sit back, relax, and get ready to join The Fresh Prince again! ...

Tom Hanks: Acting Royalty

With Andrew and Alex joining me, we go through my Twitter, Facebook & Instagram Poll on everyone's favourite Tom Hanks films & whether we agree with the final results, giving our own top 5 as well. We also dissect some of Tom Hanks standout films, some unfamiliar films, and also play a few quotes, whilst adding in a couple of amazing songs, with an absolute nostalgia fest at the end of the show! With so many films to go through, it is a hard slog, and even harder to pick a top 5 because of the sheer calibre of Tom Hanks films. He truely is an actor for the ages. Sit back and relax as we bring you the legendary actor that is Mr Tom Hanks..... ...
