Show Notes

Alex and I delve into the films of Star Trek, from OS (Original Series for those not in the know) through Next Gen (Next Generation) and onto the reboots. We look at how each film has expanded on the corresponding series and how they moved the characters on, or not, and the overall feel of each film. We also discuss our favourite parts and compare how each film holds up in this day and age. We throw in some fun facts and give our very "high horse" opinions on each of the films, disecting plots and storyline arcs and the multiple continuity errors thrown up. Not forgetting our usual random tangents during our discussions. We pick our favourites from each "era" and talk about our reasons why. Not to mention some awesome space themed music!

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... ...

Best Xmas Film Post 1991

Alex joins me as we go through the World Cup of Christmas Films Twitter poll that went out last week around Post 1991 Christmas films, with all of our favourites being whittled down to the final: Home Alone 2 vs Muppets Christmas Carol. We go through the other semi finalists and discuss each of the films that missed out and what makes them a worthy Christmas film before getting to the finalists and dissecting each one, giving our thoughts on why the film that won was worthy to win. We compare the 2 finalists and give our final opinions on each. Mixed in with the chat are some amazing songs as well as some hilarious quotes from some of the films, which are mixed in between the songs, to give a real sense of nostalgia and drag you back to the films we all love (or loathe!). Sit back and enjoy the music, the chat and the awesomeness that is the Christmas films of the "modern" era. ...

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. ...
