Show Notes

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! Seen a crap film, thats a "ghostbusters (2016)" From the terrible writing, "comedy" that doesnt hit the mark, direction and lacklustre chemistry from the cast; not the mention the ludicrously cringey "jokes" thrown around in the film and the body shaming, we leave no stone unturned as we go full steam savage on everything about the film, whilst comparing it to the orignal source material and everything amazing with that film. We share some very staunch opinions and make no apologies for it, so if you are easily triggered then this is not for you!

What Happened To Will Smith?

Joined by Alex, we both attempt to answer a burning question in my mind: What Happened To Will Smith? The once stellar action hero of Bad Boys, Independence Day & Men In Black has suffered badly at the Box Office over recent years and has seemingly fallen off the radar in big smash hits (this includes Suicide Squad by the way, but thats another podcast altogether!) so we try to get to the root of this, talking about his early work, more recent films. the issues they have faced and his lacklustre "serious" roles that have left myself and a few others a little underwhelmed at his apparent lack of versatility in the films. We look at what he could do to bring his stock back up to the heights of old and, of course, play some classic Will Smith tracks! Sit back, relax, and get ready to join The Fresh Prince again! ...

Books into Films

Alex and I discuss our favourite books we would like to be turned into films or even TV shows. We look at possible casting for our favourites, as well as where we think they would sit in terms of the current crop of films and tv shows being spat out at a canter. As per, we go off on random tangents discussing Corrie & Eastenders, Game of Thrones, misendeavours of previous incarnations, animation and food. We also play some very dubious linked music to films that were originally books! ...

Steven Spielberg

Alex, Andrew and I look at the filmography of arguably one of the most influential Directors, Producers and Writers of the modern age of film, Steven Spielberg. From Duel all the way up to Ready Player One, Spielberg has either Directed, Produced or Written some of the most popular films in the world of cinema. We look at some of our favourites, as well as some of our least favourites, and discuss Spielbergs unique style of Directing. We also throw in an ace quiz for all you film buffs out there, and see just how well Alex and Andrew know their Raiders from their Temple of Doom... And this gem from Alex "The park dude, played by the brother of the nature guy"!! Not forgetting some little known facts about Mr Spielberg, and some excellent music from some of Spielbergs films, and what we have here is something for lovers of all things film, because if you love film, guaranteed you will love at least one of Spielbergs films. But do you love, and loathe, the same as us? How well do you known Spielbergs back catalogue? Listen in and play along! ...
