0040: South Korean Week Preview Show + Star Wars: The Last Jedi Spoilercast!

This week we preview three slices of South Korean science fiction. River monsters, robot Buddha and a fish-man, we’ve got it all. And then we spend almost an hour locked in furious debate about the merits (or lack thereof) of Star Wars: The Last Jed. In a non-binding non-rating capacity, of course.

BEWARE: WALL TO WALL SPOILERS from 11:40 !

 

Watch the trailers:

0039: The Day After Tomorrow, The Colony, Snowpiercer

It’s 2018! We made it!  Celebrate another trip around the sun by snuggling up to three more film reviews as we fight back the new ice age in The Day After TomorrowThe Colony and Snowpiercer.  Everyone is pretty much in agreement and eager to talk about The Last Jedi but you’ll have to wait for next week for that.

(also no more Emmerich films for a while, promise.)

It’s Christmas Day but we’ve taken time out of eating mince pies and arguing about Star Wars to record a bumper Christmas special!  We look back at some of our favourite (and least favourite) science fiction films and tv shows from 2017, make some predictions for 2018 and spend too long talking about Star Trek. Again.

Merry Christmas from SFRS, see you in the new year for LOADS MORE RATINGS!

0036: Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Battle Beyond the Stars, Starcrash

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits cinema screens across the world this week, so we go back to where it all began with a thorough examination of 1977’s Star Wars, and two films that attempted to ape its success, and got it spectacularly wrong.

0035: Star Wars & Rip-offs Preview Week

0035: Star Wars & Rip-offs Preview Week

In a galaxy far, far away nothing is probably happening, but right here we’re watching A New Hope and 2 ripoffs because pretty soon there’s a new Star Wars film out, and that is still an exciting thing!

Also Alex brings the best quiz we’ve had yet, even if he doesn’t realise how famous the Gonk droid is. Gonk.

0034: Stargate, Independence Day, 2012

0034: Stargate, Independence Day, 2012

We revisit Independence Day and provide a definitive ranking for (probably) the most divisive film on the list.  Why is it is so bad? The wafer thin plot? The hideous level of AMURICA? The grating attempts at a deeper meaning? And who writes these podcast notes anyway?

(We also watched two other films by Roland Emmerich that were also pretty terrible)

0033: Emmerich/Devlin Axis of Destruction Preview Show

We’re back! Out of chronosleep, back from the nth Dimension, season 2 of SFRS starts with not one bang, but ALL THE BANGS as we get into three films from Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin that involve the world blowing up. And space Egypt. We also definitively decide that Alex isn’t as into this stuff as Chris was, Chris was all the way into Indepedence Day, and Sam is definitely not a racist.

Watch along with the trailers below and join us next week as we add our 60th film to the ranking!

Stargate

Independence Day

2012
