Castle Rock Stephen King Retrospective - Pet Sematary

10/18/2018
More
Yes another animal based (sort of) Stephen King adaptation! The book Pet Sematary is a very good Stephen King novel, the film however doesn't follow this as closely and doesn't capture the same tone. We did have a lot of fun watching this though so grab a drink and join us as we dissect Pet Sematary. If you want to send us any feedback please do email us at fancriticalpodcast@gmail.com and please do subscribe if you enjoyed the pod.

Walking Dead Season 9 - A New Beginning

10/8/2018
More
The Walking Dead is back and surprisingly so are we...This is actually a pretty good episode. The time jump has definitely helped the show and our characters are all split up and leading the communities. All is not well though, there is trouble brewing and in typical Walking Dead fashion there is a lot of silly decisions...we break down the episode and relate everything to the comic source material in our Comic Corner segment. If you have enjoyed please do subscribe and for any thoughts...

The Predator

10/1/2018
More
What did we think of the latest entry to the Predator franchise? Let's just say Len and John weren't impressed...It's a really fun chat though where we do try to find some positives in what turned out to be a very messy and not very cohesive film.

Wow...the best episode of the season...or the best episode of television this year?

Ant Man And The Wasp

8/13/2018
More
Another great instalment in the Marvel franchise, Ant Man And The Wasp is just a great comedy film. Sure it doesn't really add to the ongoing story after the events of Infinity War but it's great fun and maybe we needed that after that films depressing ending.
