You can’t go wrong with Gilliam

This week we’re reviewing The Fisher King, but we sound more like we’re in Twelve Monkeys: an unidentified plague has swept across 101 Films Towers, leaving Lewis and Ian as croaky, self-pitying shadows of their former selves. If you can put up with us hacking, coughing and spluttering for 40 minutes, you can enjoy ourContinue reading “You can’t go wrong with Gilliam”

Richard O’Brien, we worship thee

Dark City opens with a controversial voice over that reveals pretty much the entire plot in the first 30 seconds. For many, this ruins what should be a mysterious and bewildering (in a fun way) film-watching experience. So we’re not going to make the same mistake here at 101 Films. We’re not going to tellContinue reading “Richard O’Brien, we worship thee”

Forget it, Jake

Classic 1970s Woody Allen

Despite the approaching winter and the chilly mornings 101 Films is feeling in a romantic mood this week. And in the mood to consider how ultimately most relationships fail and even the strongest of loves can fade… Ahhh, love! This week Lewis and Ian turn their attention to one of the great writer/actor/directors of theContinue reading “Classic 1970s Woody Allen”

Welcome to the danger zone

Here we go then, the first proper 101 Films You Should Have Seen Podcast. After much discussion the boys decided to discuss a film Ian had never seen. That’s right, he had somehow gone through his entire adolescence without seeing Top Gun. TOP GUN!?! I know, how is that even possible? Well he’s watched itContinue reading “Welcome to the danger zone”
