In this brief episode I look at three Woody Allen films - Bananas, Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex and Play It Again Sam- in terms of how much they held up on a 2019 rewatch. So in what ways are they dated, are they still funny and how do the allegations made against Allen affect a viewing of these films.
In this episode Jake and I return to the disaster genre with an episode on 'The Towering Inferno', the classic Steve McQueen and Paul Newman vs a big fire film. And thankfully our conversation is shorter than the film.
Another return visit to our sister-podcast the SpielbergPod with a discussion from 2015 on Steven Spielberg's epic film, 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind'.
And if you wonder why we don't mention the film 'Arrival' (which would've made a dynamite Companion Piece) it wasn't out at the point of Kieran and I recording this episode. Bloody good film though.
Grab your popcorn as Kieran and I debate the Mel Brooks comedy 'Young Frankenstein'.
We also try and find a good post-millennium Tim Burton, we discuss the most recent 'Ghostbusters' film and much more.

Along the way we discuss the films of Steve Martin,the passing of Burt Reynolds and much more.
To celebrate our 50th 1970s episode, Kieran and I discuss a stone-cold classic, Francis Ford Coppola's 'The Godfather'.
And if you want to hear more Godfather discussion go to www.patreon.com/ERRP where supporters of the show can download an exclusive chat on the idea of whether 'The Godfather' could work as a TV show (amongst many other exclusives).
Smile you son of a bitch.... because this week we're talking about the Spielberg classic, 'Jaws'.
Reissuing an episode from our sister show, the SpielbergPod, from a 2015 conversation about the Amity set classic, Paul and I talk about splitting the film into two parts, the notion of a shark terrorising the Isle of Wight, 'Jurassic Park' comparisons, the TV show 'The Affair', the idea of making Brody gay and much, much more.
And to make this a bigger boat we've accompanied this old...
