Show Notes

Alex (after he decides to turn up...) & i look at The Peoples Champion, Dwayne Johnson and his rise from WWF (yeah I said it and what?)to Hollywoods most paid actor in 2017. We look at his early beginnings in acting, his typcasting and his breaking the mold to become one of the most bankable actors on the planet. From 2001's The Mummy Returns to 2018's Skyscraper and beyond, Dwayne Johnson has shed his moniker of "The Rock" and is now a actor, producer and director in his own right. We also talk about some fun facts and I fanboy a little of my man crush! Throw in some very classic musical choices and this is a show for all the Dwayne Johnson fans out there! Can you smell that...?

Why The Ghostbuster Remake Was So Poor!

Trigger Warning - Do not listen if easily offended by anything remotely negative! Alex & I finally delve into a real film hate of ours, and that is Paul Fieges abomination that is "Ghostbusters" (2016) This film is the standard for crap films!

We share some very staunch opinions and make no apologies for it, so if you are easily triggered then this is not for you! ...
