Returning to Middle Earth after our epic coverage of the Jackson trilogy on my sister podcast, the SpielbergPod (still available), Paul, Kieran and I discuss Ralph Bakshi's 'The Lord of the Rings', which is an animated take on 'The Fellowship of The Ring' and 'The Two Towers'.
Expect comparisons to Tolkien's books as well as to the Peter Jackson films. Also, top bants!
Oh no, not me, I never lost control. You're face to face, with the man with the golden gun.
This week, as part of our ongoing conversation about the James Bond films, Jev and I discuss 'The Man With the Golden Gun', in which Roger Moore takes on the three-nippled Scaramanga, played by Christopher Lee.
Join us for a fun conversation. A mixture of critique and praise for this movie, which I think most would agree, is not 007's finest hour.
Recorded on a wet and boozy winter evening, Paul and I celebrate reaching episode 75 of our 1970s series with a discussion an all-time classic- Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather: Part II.

In this short solo episode, I conclude our 1970s Mel Brooks coverage by talking about 'Silent Movie' and 'High Anxiety' (one of which I liked, the other, not so much).
Expect talk about Woody Allen, Alfred Hitchcock and more.
This week it's true-crime time, as we discuss Sidney Lumet's 'Dog Day Afternoon', the New York set bank-heist film starring Al Pachino and John Cazale.
We also find time to discuss a tonne of other things from a classic Only Fools and Horses episode, misunderstanding Michael Collins, casting The Terminator, comparing modern-day Pachino to DeNiro and much more.
Continuing my coverage of the films of Woody Allen, in this episode I talk about 'Sleeper' (set in the future) and 'Love and Death' (set in the past). I also talk about 'Demolition Man' more than I thought I would...
In this episode- part of a crossover with the fantastic Star Trek podcast Spocklight- we discuss Paul Schrader's directorial debut, 'Blue Collar'.
Expect conversation about Schrader's career, kicking in walls, Richard Pryor's stunning performance in this film, The Wire, real-life tales from the set of this film and much more.
Also, be sure to download my guest-spot on the most recent episode of Spocklight where we talk about the 1970s remake of 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers'. Available...
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.
