Show Notes

Alex & I delve into the films of Mr Explosion, Michael Bay. The man who can single handedly make a reason to just blow something up for the sake of it! We look at some of his most popular films, and discover that some of the most popular in his catalogue were actually rated terribly by Rotton Tomatoes, leading us to go on a tirade about RT! I also lobby for Armageddon being one of his best films, whilst Alex vehemently disagrees. We look at his impact on Hollywood, and how his films are viewed by both critics and the ordinary cinemagoer, looking at why they fare so much stronger with normal people, as opposed to the cretins at The Academy. We also get teary about Stan Lee passing away, minutes before our show went live, as well as a few secrets being revealed by myself, much to Alex's disgust! And not forgetting some amazing songs found in Mr Bay's films.

Marvel & DC

I am joined by Andrew, my actual next door neighbour, and MASSIVE DC fan as we discuss and dissect our favourite parts about each Studio; Film & TV, and TRY to decide which is better.

Interview with George Coppen

I speak to the hilarious Comedian, Actor and professional Dwarf (his words, not mine!) George Coppen about his life, his acting and panto work and his foray into Comedy on the local circuits. George tells me how he got bullied by an algorithm, spent his first time in Panto in cold, dark, Middlesborough, his work with colleagues on other films such as Artemis Fowl and the hilarity they have on set, being Warwick Davis' stand in and having a Dad who was an Ewok in arguable the most well known Sci-Fi film franchise. This is a fantasic interview with a genuinely hilarious man! ...
