Show Notes

Alex and I take a look at a dying genre of film; the Western. We take a look at the works of 2 of the finest gunslingers to ever grave the screen; John Wayne and Clint Eastwood, and discuss their respective works before moving onto the more modern incarnations of the Western film, looking at how the dynamic of the films genre has changed and how Hollywood has forgotten the essence of the genre. We look at what can be done to revive the genre, who we would like to see in lead roles and the types of films the genre is crying out for in the modern cinema world. We throw in some excellent facts about John Wayne, Eastwood and a few others as well as looking over some of the best films out there to watch back, to really get the feel of a great Western film. Alex and I also argue over a specific film that he feels fits into Western genre, but that I personally feel has absolutely no merit in which to do so!

Batman vs Superman - Fixed!

Alex and Andrew join me as we use the release of Justice League to look at, and fix, its predecessor, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. We discuss what went wrong with the film, how it impacted Justice League, and look at the areas we would change. Alex throws in a brand new storyline which would not feel out of place in a new DCEU franchise, and it makes a lot of sense. It would change the landscape for a bang average Justice League film. We look at replacements for certain parts, look at what options are available and play some amazing Superman and Batman themed songs. If you ever thought about fixing Batman vs Superman, or you thought it could be better, then take a listen and enjoy! ...

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.
