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!

0074: Mad Max

0074: Mad Max

This week the gang watch George Miller’s Mad Max, a little Australian indie flick that made a lot of money that introduced the world to Mel Gibson, so has a knock against it from the start.  Join us as we watch an uneven film that a lot of people think they’ve seen but perhaps haven’t, and try our best to stop Chris starting beef with any more countries/organised crime syndicates.

Next week our first Spanish film, its Timecrimes! Watch a trailer here!

0073: The Abyss

0073: The Abyss

James Cameron really loves the water, so he made a very expensive film that was very difficult to film so he could become a fish for a few months.  The result is The Abyss, a clunky blockbuster that has a lot more issues than its watery setting. Join us as we discuss why no one makes films like this, what’s going on with Cameron’s choking fetish and try and fix the terrible ending.

Next week post apocalyptic fun with George Miller’s original Mad Max, watch a trailer here!

0072: Predators

0072: Predators

Remember how great Predator was last week? What a well thought out, tightly scripted and tense action film it was? And remember Predator 2? How it took that formula and transplanted it to a city, adding police procedural stuff and weirdo cults to create some fresh and exciting?

Well forget all that because this week we watch Predators, where gruff librarian Adrien Brody leads a group of dull Z-listers around a fake jungle in a vain attempt to locate the magic that made the original film so good.

(P.s. these notes written by Sam, and don’t necessarily represent the views of the entire pod. But they probably should.)

Next week we go under the sea with James Cameron’s The Abyss, watch the trailer here!

0071: Predator

0071: Predator

We’re back with a bang, as we celebrate the release of The Predator by watching Predator, no The required. Join us for an in depth breakdown of John McTiernan’s monster movie classic, as we follow Arnie and a team of ’80s action heroes into the jungle. Awful Arnie impersonations, lots of talk about how great a monster the predator is, and repeated attempts not to consider any of the terrible things done to the Predator by later entries in the franchise.

Next week a look at one of those later entries, more predator fun with 2010’s Predators, watch a trailer here!
