A very, very belated International Woman’s Day influenced podcast. Lewis and Ian watch the 1980 screwball classic Nine to Five.
Recorded on Oscar night, we give our wildly diverging opinions on the hotly tipped Richard Linklater film Boyhood, as well as offering our own, mostly wrong, Oscar predictions.
Its the 101 Films 2015 New Year Special! Here we discuss the releases of 2014, what we thought of them (of the three or four we actually saw) and look ahead at what 2015 has in store for us…
This week we look at the 1980s classic Wall Street, a movie that, brilliantly, features a cocktail-serving robot, not to mention the first depiction of a mobile phone in a Hollywood film. It also features that guy from Hotshots and that bloke from Behind the Candelabra.
This week we have another slightly crackly Skype podcast in which we discuss reader recommendation The Warriors and get all carried away with making up gang costumes.
In a belated Halloween podcast, we review the classic Hammer film Quatermass and the Pit. Apologies for the poor sound quality, this is our first attempt to record over Skype!
To tie in with the World Cup, sort of, we review the brilliant Brazil. After being disappointed by The Fisher King and Twelve Monkeys, Ian finally gets why Terry Gilliam is held in such high regard.
In our second movie marathon, we take a rare excursion into horror territory with a look back at some choice films from Tobe Hooper’s career. We begin with the chilling but brilliant Texas Chainsaw Massacre, followed by the odd but extremely successful Poltergeist, and end with the bonkers but charming flop that is Lifeforce.
A cult classic for our 72nd film; Phantom of the Paradise. Lewis and Ian were charmed by it’s sheer joie de vivre. And BEEF.
In celebration of Mother’s Day, we review Ian’s mum’s favourite film, Gone With The Wind. Cue emphatic praise about Vivien Leigh, followed by extensive hand-wringing about racism.
