0069: 1984

0069: 1984

IT’S OUR 100TH FILM!

And what better film to celebrate than the monochrome miserabilism of Michael Radford’s 1984, yay!  Alex hosts as we thoroughly dissect the film breaking occasionally from the misery to take part in an incredibly self indulgent quiz about…ourselves.

Next week we watch 1984 again, but through the lens of a hyperactive 14 year old in 2000 – its Equilibrium! Watch a trailer here!

0066: Them!

0066: Them!

For a 2nd year running we celebrate Bug Week with some GIANT ANTS.  In a wide ranging episode we dissect the film itself, and also get into projection techniques, an in depth ant quiz, the wonder of a Victorian man in Hollywood and much, much more!
Note:  We had a bit of technical trouble whilst recording, so if Chris and Sam seem to be laughing for no reason its because Alex sounded like an alien trapped in a washing machine for much of the podcast. Luckily, his voice is super sweet and clean for the listener.

0065: Treasure Planet

0065: Treasure Planet

We’re back from summer break and taking a look at Disney’s Treasure Planet, one of the final traditional hand-animated blockbusters from the mouse house, that flopped pretty badly, but is an entertaining (ish) ride.

Next week we go all the way back to 1954 for the nuclear monster romp Them!, you can watch a trailer here!

0064: Star Trek V: The Final Frontier

Our journey through the history of Star Trek on the silver screen reaches its nadir, with William Shatner’s atrocious Star Trek V. Spoilers: We didn’t like it, but of course we didn’t because who does?  Join us as we struggle to find a positive, wonder how the Enterprise crew has not been court-martialed by now and try our best to forget Uhura’s dance.

0063: Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure

0063: Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure

This week we stick with comedy and a trip back to the late ’80s, where the clothes were baggy, the music was radical and the casual homophobia was a shock. Join us as we travel through time and wonder did they really does say what we thought they said??

Next week we continue our Star Trek odyssey, biting the bullet watching Star Trek V: The Final Frontier because I guess we have to one day! Lame.  Watch a trailer here

0062: Muppets From Space

Also we spend a long time quoting Renfro the bear. THE GOAT?!

0061: Jurassic Park

0061: Jurassic Park

They say life finds a way and so, like a chaotic fractal blooming into the infinite the SFRS crew finally get back to Jurassic Park, the final of the ‘pilot’ episode films to get a rewatch.  This time we each bothered to watch it and so have a lot to say about park safety, the feasibility of a graphics heavy OS, and the concept of Peak Spielberg.

0060: 2001: A Space Odyssey

0060: 2001: A Space Odyssey

This week we watch 2001, chosen by Matt Fitch, co-author of the fantastic new graphic novel Apollo, in stores now! We break down the film, Alex proposes an extra act break, and then when it comes to the all important ranking the pod erupts in all-out war.  Not since Ghost in the Shell has a film proved quite so divisive. Will the gang manage to reach a ranking, or is a certain co-host so angry that this is the end of SFRS as we know it?  Tune in for more drama than you can probably find in the film itself!
