0087: Under the Skin

0087: Under the Skin

Its 2019 and we’re back from break with three weeks of films from 2014, a year now apparently (and absurdly) FIVE YEARS FROM NOW. I mean really, time is a bit weird, isn’t it?

Anyway this week is an uncharacteristically nuanced and deep look at Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin, in which we attempt to separate authorial intent from the audience’s experience, discuss the merits of ambiguity versus a cold hard narrative, and stop Chris getting into beef with Scotland. Well, almost.

Next week its Chris’ choice of 2014 film, Interstellar! Watch a trailer here!

There’s also a few weeks left to fill out your 2019 predictions here:

0084: Knights

0084: Knights

This week its all Chris’ fault. We watch his choice of science fiction films, 1993’s Knights, a messy, cheap and Lance Henriksen starring post-apocalyptic tale of cyborg knights, kickboxing slaves and Kris Kristofferson not really being aware what film he’s in.

If you can face it you can watch the whole film here! And if not, let us tell you why you should really click that link.¬† Oh and listen till the end to hear whether Chris will make a similar mistake again…

Next week we see out the year with a classic – Its only The Empire Strikes Back. Blimey! Watch an amazing trailer starring Harrison Ford here!

0082: The Matrix

This week we take the red pill and ask the question: What is¬†The Matrix? In a bumper episode we meticulously work our way through the film, discuss Keanu’s acting ‘style’, moan about how things were better in the ’90s (again), discuss the fast approaching singularity and fill plot holes as fast as Chris can create them.¬† And there’s even time for a quiz!

0081: Jason X

0081: Jason X

Our (late) horror season concludes with science fiction slasher and tenth entry in the Friday 13th franchise Jason X. 400 years in the future Jason is set loose aboard a school/military/research(?) ship and goes about his business killing dudes.  We look for the positives in a seriously flawed film and even manage to coax Chris into saying a few nice things.

Next week a sci-fi classic- The Matrix! watch a trailer here!

0079: Sunshine

0079: Sunshine

This week Chris hosts as we take a look at Danny Boyle’s¬†Sunshine, the first of a loose (and late) horror trilogy of shows.¬†Disagreement is rife about whether this is a good film, half a good film, or just rubbish all the way through. Does¬†Sunshine have one of film’s worst villains? Does anyone know whats up with Cillian Murphy? And which nation do we manage to accidentally offend this week? All the answers and more within!

Next week it’s¬†Event Horizon, watch a trailer here!
