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!

Gary Oldman Filmography: Sid Vicious to Winston Churchill

With the recent release of "Darkest Hour", a bipoic of Sir Winston Churchill starring the effervescent Gary Oldman, there was only one way Alex & I were going to go. We go through Gary Oldman's back catalogue of films, discuss some of his more prominent roles as well as his lesser known, and compare how he has matured as an actor. I thrown in a couple of very little known (or not so much maybe?) facts about Mr Oldman, as we go through our favourite characters, their impact on the film itself and what he brought to the overall film industry. All of this is interspersed with some classic songs from some of Gary's films, along with an absolute cracker right at the end! For all fans of Gary Oldman, this is the perfect episode for you! Enjoy! ...

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! ...
