Show Notes

We're back! After a few weeks hiatus (due to personal issues neither of us could control) we come back swinging, talking about all things Guy Fawkes, Halloween and Horror. Alex & I go in hard on those who do not wear Poppies, we talk about the Halloween reboot/sequel/waste of time, as well as go through some awesome horror films. We also go off on a tangent that starts at Halloween takes a trip through Thanksgiving & Black Friday and ends up with Michael Bay! We also give our opinions on some frightfully awesome TV series to get your teeth into as well as delve into just why Horror movies are sluggish and seemingly struggling for audiences, looking at the rise of TV series taking the coverted audiences and keeping people away from the cinema. We finally give our Top 5 Horror films to test your metal against!

Resurrected!

Alex and I look at some of our favourite TV shows and Films, and discuss how we could resurrect them and keep them going once more. Where would you start with a Firefly resurrection? Would Joshua Jackson don the Ducks jersey once more? Who would fill the roles of the Gargoyles Live Action of the 90's TV show? Does the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy need a resurrection? Find out in this nostalgia filled episode where Alex literally shakes the mic to talk about Gargoyles and I cannot contain my excited about The Mighty Ducks. With some amazing music, as always, thrown in, and some brilliant quotes, this will get you thinking about what YOU would do if you could resurrect a TV show or film. And which one would you go for? ...

Food in Films

Alex and I are back with a look into Food in Films, going over some of the most delicious films to ever grace the big screen, as well as some of the most obscure TV shows that you should definately binge! From Cult favourite Chef, to Disney magic, Ratatouille and everything else in between (and Good Burger...) we look at how food in films translates to the audience and what are the underlying messages from the films. We discuss the types of cuisines found in the films and what they create in terms of a full frontal attack to those who have a passion for cooking, or those who want to learn due to films (man in food truck...) We also discuss how Masterchef UK is far far far inferior to MasterChef Australia and why the UK version is so flat in comparison. And not forgetting the Meme hub that is Hells Kitchen staring Mr Sweary, Gordon Ramsey. Shout outs to the UK's version of the awesome Adam Richmond (forgetting the fact he is a Spurs fan...) Kate Ovens, as well as some epic news for local Comic Con fans.... For all you foodies out there, this is for you... ...

Alien vs Predator: Remade

Alex and I come up with our own version of the awful mash up of 2 of the most formidable baddies in cinema history, Alien vs Predator. We come up with our own script, as such, our own cast, director, producer etc as well as an overview of how we would want it to play out on the big screen as well as how it plays into the other, individual films from each franchise. We look at what we would think is acceptable and debate each of our own ideas to see which is the best idea. with some excellent, rocking music, we remake what could have been (and should have been) one of the best mash ups of modern cinema history! Let us know what you think and what you would do differently on Twitter or Facebook. ...
