Episode 128. Baywatch

The Pauls haven't had much luck at the beach in the past. They've had runs with Surf Ninjas, knock off Bodhis and the end of Gigli. Also they're so pale you can see their hearts in direct sunlight like a weird fish. But the sun is out (in one of their countries) so it's time to pull up those thongs and go to town. It's the baywatch remake! Featuring: stunning awareness of the geography of the British Isles, Pamela Anderson 2: Neil Breen, a meal fit for a Travers, Zayfron, naughty words,...


Episode 127. Spice World

Spice up your life by listening to two awful men talk about a twenty year old movie that wasn't made for them! Apropos of nothing, they decide to watch baby, ginger, athletic, wealthy, and frightening in their first and so far only movie. It's a mad trip of a podcast for a genuinely baffling film. Enjoy! Featuring: A surprisingly small number of studio albums, yet more references to David Lynch and That Darn Cat, Roger "The Mad Dog" Ebert, the Brexit bus, and at least two celebrity cameos...


Episode 126. Even More Things You Might Have Missed

It's out longest title yet and probably the longest time we've spent before actually talking about the thing we came to talk about. It's another round of excellent movies those condescending pricks think you might have missed in your busy, busy life. So drop that overpriced fruit drink, stop dancing for five seconds and listen to all the best ways you could be silently staring at a screen. Featuring: a lot of clips in languages you don't know (probably), Paul's near near-death experience, a...


Episode 125. The Conqueror

YARGH! Look out peasants and women minding their own business. It's a time of plunder and rrrrrapine! There are hoardes of rampaging Pauls sweeping across the steppes in search of land or property they can forcibly acquire without due process. RAPINE! Also, they're gonna watch 1956's radioactive misstep, The Conqueror. Featuring: John Wayne as a Mongolian warlord (seriously), some excellent voice work all around, decidedly unafraid children, yet another jingle, Stinky McShitface (tm), a...


Episode 124. Gods of Egypt (feat. Daniel Wilks)

Alottagreen founder Daniel Wilks challenges one of his newest recruits (couple a' Pauls) with an arduous treck through the CGI desert that is Australia, in Alex Proyas' Gods of Egypt. The Pauls battle fervently to reclaim their stolen eyes but only manage to get one of the four back, so they have to share forever. Featuring: More cinema tales, the beard accent, a very special fourmen, Beck, a Scottish Christmas, a very small horn, the loudest thief ever, Brian Brown the King of the Gods,...


Episode 123. Inspector Gadget (family friendly)

Go go gadget Paul boys! It's time for them to awkwardly try to stay kid friendly whilst enduring one of the worst films they've ever seen! Watch as they smoothly avoid mentioning Werner Herzog and his ways. Marvel at their repeated references to Robocop! Witness the Pauls suffer their most Kid Friendly meltdown yet! Featuring: Robocop, Seal and Shaggy's UK tour, two decades worth of threeman, Paul's guide to the internet, Will.I.AMDB, the 90s, and sound effects, sound effects, SOUND...


Episode 122. Pass Thru (Feat. Phil Harker-Smith)

There's a man. He walks alone in the desert. He has an important message for us all. He speaks in a strange manner, but he communes with tigers and he looks like a weird composite effect. His name is Phil Harker-Smith! And he's on this weeks episode of One Good Thing to talk about a Neil Breen Movie. Breen is one of the most unique and hilariously bizarre directors working today. Have the Pauls found a new favourite? Or will Phil have to return to his planet in disgrace? Featuring: Breen...


Episode 121. Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No (Feat. Aussie Nerd)

The Pauls are spiralling down into another recommendations month, bumping into many toothed fish along the way. One such fish is Aussie Nerd who has brought us a tasty offering to pick through. It's the third entry into the sometimes known Sharknado franchise, the second the Pauls have wolfed down on the podcast. Will this finally be the one to convince the Pauls these are camp classics and cult films in the making? Or will they just be dicks about it. Let's find out! Featuring: Us being...


Episode 120. Keeping Up With King Arthur (2004)

Pauls of the Realm, it is time to defend a poor, maligned film from one of the Pauls' youths and defend it against overwhelming indifference. I ask this of you, brave Pauls, that you complete one last mission before we let you go and be with Ray Winstone in Valhalla, or whatever the Romans believed in. Featuring: King Clive, Hannibal Lector, Will Graham, Mister Fantastic/Rik Mayall, Ray "put a bet on" Winstone, Hippy Joel Edgerton, DAG, Snarly Knightly, Stellan Skarsgaard the cowboy Viking,...


Episode 119. Holmes and Watson

Good piss balls, Watson, it appears to be the most devilish challenge the Pauls have faced yet. A comedy film of such crippling ineptitude there could only be one culprit! ...and many, many accomplices, all of whom shall share the Pauls' ire. Look the fuck out, Watson, I fear we are in for a Paul onslaught the likes of which we've seldom seen before! Perhaps some crack will calm our nerves. Featuring: Peter 'Baby Legs' Travers, 'Murica Jones, Will Pharrell, Ralph Fiennes' Beard, comedy...


Episode 118. Venom

The Pauls went snooping around Riz Ahmed's basement late one night and caught a nasty bout of CGI face. The only cure is to watch the not-quite-Marvel anti-hero movie, Venom starring Tom "could you repeat that" Hardy. Along the way they discover the true meaning of friendship and how to sniff out homo-erotic subtext at 100 minutes. This one isn't at all family friendly. It's a hard episode, for a totally grown up movie rated PG-13. Featuring: dope rhymez, Bristopher Nolan, the end of...


Episode 117. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (family friendly!)

It’s Franchise FffffTuesday, and you know what that means: a snap game of Russian Roulette! The Pauls remember that they’d only seen Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald once before and apparently a lot of people paid money to see it despite it being a pooper of a picture. Is it deserving of constant upsetting derision or is the real crime of Grindelwald the penny sweets that Mark Kermode pilfers from the pick ‘n’ mix aisle in the local Cineworld that he insists on returning to...


Episode 116. 2018

It's the end of the financial year God Bless the Queen and the Pauls like to celebrate the completion of their returns by dusting off the old podcasting mics and having a chinwag about the best films of the year - in list form! Featuring: everything you could ever imagine and hopefully a little bit more than that, as well. We are proud members of the Alottagreen Network – you can check...


Episode 115. Wild Women of Wongo

Are you sick of the modern world and its values? Tired of the constant need to treat people different from you with respect? I know we is. So let's dive head first into this 50s thing in which simple, dragon-god-fearing folk fear and distrust their fellow man/woman/ape-man as well they should. It's a perfect experiment. What could go wrong? One Good Thing. Featuring: An important Kangaroo Jack update, every Wednesday you've ever had, Casablanca 2, a comedy relief parrot, a Welshman in his...


Episode 114. Mommie Dearest (feat. John from Beyond the Box Set)

John from Beyond the Box Set (@BeyondTheBoxSet) arrives this week with a hefty serving of campy child abuse entertainment: that’s right, it’s the one good thing about Mommie Dearest starring Faye Dunaway, possibly Joan Crawford. It might be a comedy, it might be a double comedy. One thing’s for sure: it’s so much art that we don’t know anything except something something wire hangers. Featuring: tuhbo tihme, the ten percent game, Roger Mooreslehoff, M, G and M, fuck you up death glare, loaf...


Episode 113. The Purge

On March 222019, America waited… for The Pauls to finish their episode on The Predator. But in the film we watched the week after, on another March 22, watching The Purge became legal for just twelve hours. Could The Pauls achieve such a task, factoring in bathroom and bagel breaks and finding all the good things about this film whilst simultaneously upvoting Captain Marvel and Doctor Who on all movie review websites? Jeremy Corbyn could. Some say he already has. The one good thing about The...


Episode 112. The Predator (feat. Baby Beard)

Aw shucks, they got in again. Baby Beard Media have infiltrated the Paul Cove (TM) again and this time they have made us talk about Shane Black's underwhelming entry into the Predator Puddle (TM). Will it be as good as Predator 2 starring Danny Glover (TM)? Will anyone successfully articulate an entire thought? Will one of the Pauls be schooled on the qualities of the original predator? No, kind of and yes. Listen. Featuring: At least four too many people, a forgettable squad of misfits,...


Episode 111. Planes (family friendly!)

Welcoming OGTeam and OGTeen/Tweens alike: the Pauls make history with their first ever family friendly episode – and it's about Disney Pixar cinematic-release-at-the-last-minute Planes! Do the Pauls go the entire episode without saying anything adult or do they flip up and go butts to the wall as this film works its Disney magic on their eager and nubile minds? Well, only one way to blummin' find out eh? ...farts. Featuring: Am Boat Am Plane, What's in the box?, not a pun, Seino, the many...


Episode 110. Tripping the Life Aquatic

Rage-ho, OGTeam: one of the Pauls can’t stand the wave of middling-to-good reception of a Wes Anderson film and has made it his life’s work to force people to love everything that a director a lot of people like already… more. It’s very satisfying and worthwhile. Paul G “defends” The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou! Featuring: inspirational Owen Wilson t-shirt, Liam Neeson is definitely Jesus, old man Anderson and his Pokémon windows, Bill Murray’s little face! and simple...


Episode 109. Run For Your Wife

Every available Cockney cliché under the sun boys and girls, because this week the Pauls look for one good thing about Ray Cooney’s adapted from the stage play by Ray Cooney comedy film Run For Your Wife! Gorblimey Mary Poppins, it’s British, it’s a sex comedy, it’s everything that series of descriptives suggests it will be. Don’t dilly dally my boy, get stuck in OO-BLOODY-ERR. Featuring: Denise Van H'outen, A Very Morrissey Reality, digital bigamy, d’oh, d’aww, what is he like and a...
