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!

0083: Waterworld

0083: Waterworld

This week its back to the ’90s for Waterworld, Kevin Costner’s flopping wet fish of a blockbuster.  In depth plot discussion, Kevin Costner’s casino, ideas for a better film, we dive so deep into Waterworld we come up screaming for air. And a better film.

Next week its Chris’ fault we’re watching Knights, and you can watch a trailer here or the entire film here!

0082: The Matrix

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!

Next week we keep this blockbuster train rolling with, er, Waterworld. Here’s a trailer!

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!

0077: Timecrimes

0077: Timecrimes

This week Chris is back so we return to the business of ranking films, not trailers. Timecrimes is the latest addition to the list, with Alex hosting as we pull apart the complicated plot that inevitably comes with a time paradox. We also get quizzed on famous crimes, what Americans think about time travel and probably add another country to the list of places we can’t go any more.

Next week its Escape From New York, watch a trailer here!
