50: Film Critters - Episode 50

Welcome to Episode 50, smashing it's way through 2019 with the usual pointless observations, unhinged anger and film reviews. This week is Yorgos Lanthimos' The Favourite. There is a lengthy discussion on goblins, a chatter about naked old men and somehow Kevin Spacey slithers back in with some absolute weirdness.

48: Film Critters - Episode 48

Hello people who like films. A wet, windy and half-hungover episode hailing from deepest South London where Jim and Dim review the stunning Roma. Dogs, fat Llamas, James Corden and the most awful on-screen death feature briefly. Also reviewed is the long Bone Tomahawk and the miserable doggy movie, Amos Perros. Remember, as Katy Perry always said, "Yeah that Russell Brand lad was a knobhead."


47: Film Critters - Episode 47

Hello friends of film. A super special one year anniversary episode (absolutely nothing special happens) of your favourite film based nonsense. Reviewed this week is the sweet and beautiful Shoplifters. The 2019 golden globe nominations are in, a sociopathic cat is endured and Kevin Hart gets a hell of a character arc.

46: Film Critters - Episode 46

On a very boozy Sunday afternoon the boys recorded a podcast before a fantastic north London derby. They reviewed many things including life, american corporatism, racism, pacifism, Sorry to Bother You, Star Wars pod racer, A testament of youth, The King of Comedy, chips and many more things that did and did not need reviewing. As David Gregory once said "I am nothing if not honest, and I'm not honest...ever"


45: Film Critters - Episode 45

David and his James review the Steve McQueen thriller Widows whilst freezing their moobs off in a beer garden. James is on particularly spiteful form, David plays a spooky computer game and everyone agrees 45 day invoices are fucking stupid. Also reviewed are Gone Home (the computer game) and They shall not grow Old.


44: Film Critters - Episode 44

RIP Stan Lee Back on hallowed ground (The Bull pub) as Dave and James review the new Netflix banger The Outlaw king. Armie Hammer goes mad, Aaron Taylor-Johnson is off his nut and Withnail is on another planet. Also the Dumbo trailer looks fucking shit. Also reviewed is Collossal and Withnail and I. As Tim Burton says every time he makes a film....'I want that fucking stupid lass in my film, my wife, Helena Bonham Carter.


43: Film Critters - Episode 43

Chris Martin gets some shit for being a flannel, random train passengers are accosted and.......Cheddar Goblin. Also reviewed are Take Shelter and Kodachrome. Cheddar Goblin has 60% more cheddar......Beautiful.


42: Film Critters - Episode 42

It's our spooky special! The scariest episode yet whilst at the same time being completely the same as all the others. Our main review is obviously the reboot-sequel-prequel Halloween. We go into detail why Making a Murderers' Ken Kratz is the worst man on the planet whilst a case is made for James Corden being the worst man on the planet and Michael Shannon is praised as the demi-god that he is. Steven Avery said it best when he said 'I murdered her and would do it again in a heartbeat'.


41: Film Critters - Episode 41

Hello folks. James and Dave have special guest James Owen (bloke northern mate and radio show host) on to discuss/review/shout about Paul Greengrass's new Netflix beast July 22\. Many beers are drunk, James buzzes on a recent lecture on horror films and much love is sent over to Roman Reigns. Also reviewed are A Place beyond the Pines and The Guest.


40: Film Critters - Episode 40

Shades of normality return this week as James and Dave once again take the plunge into the glorious world of cinema and fiction. This week they coin the term Science-Faction as they review the epic festival darling "First Man". David riffs on Metallica ticket price tags whilst James finally gets to talk about his least favourite human being (debatable) Piers Morgan and again talks about giants with a taste for human flesh. In addition, reviewed this week are Hotel Artemis, I Daniel Blake and...


39: Film Critters - Episode 39

Apologies from the outset. This is a needlessly and horrendously drunk episode coming directly from Leicester Square. Main review is of course the moving A Star is Born. David finally sacks off his x-files watch-a-thon, a bottle of Jamesons is drunk and Conor McGregor is laid into for being the over-hyped racist that he is. Also reviewed are Where the Wind Blows and Blue Velvet and loads of computer games for no reason. Like Prince Harry always says....."Get out of my way you fucking you god...


38: Film Critters - Episode 38

James-upon-David review the new Netflix original Hold the Dark with mixed emotions. They talk about the oversaturation of streaming tv shows, the wage strikes of Wetherspoons and Paddington Bear being a mad bastard! Also reviewed are The Lives of Others and obvs, Paddington 2\. Like Paddington always say....'gimme a marmalade sandwich for me tea you fucking mad lad!'


37: Film Critters - Episode 37

Davey and Jamey review the excellent Leave No Trace. Brie Larson is not allowed to frown, Boyd Hilton is not an authority on film and the Vietnam War is not a laughing matter. Also reviewed are The Girl with all the Gifts and The Cove. Reviewing films with PTSD, dolphin genocide and terrible child actors produces a very sombre pod. Forgive us.


36: Film Critters - Episode 36

Hello film lovers. This week James and Dave review the beautiful new movie Cold War. Multicultural London gets the loving, a concerned drunk man gets the hating and in a bizarre turn of events we get to speak to a living, breathing racist. Also reviewed are Paddington and Tucker & Dave vs Evil. If you don't like racism please listen to this. If you do like racism please insert your fingers into a toaster.


35: Film Critters - Episode 35

David and his monumentally hungover friend James review the new, absolutely diabolical, Predator film. David talks in depth about a certain Billboard advertisement he sees daily whilst James reflects on crimes against nature and film-making, plus all the (un)usual podcast banter. Also reviewed are "Cablibre" and Hannah Gadsby's, thought provoking,"Nanette". As the graceful Audrey Hepburn once said " Eat shit and die punk!"


34: Film Critters - Episode 34

Isle of Skye special! Dave and James host this week's podcast from the beautiful Scottish isles where they are shooting footage for their short film We Progress. As they become increasingly refreshed at the pub they review the new Ethan Hawke indy First Reformed as well as chatting complete bollocks on everything from chauvinistic Italian pricks to the Vietnam War. Also reviewed are Pollise and Into the Inferno. In the wise words of Ho Chi Minh 'As when the structure of the modern world...


33: Film Critters - Episode 33

Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit! Another cracking podcast episode from James and David. They review the new Spike Lee joint Blackkklansman, and reminisce over the awkward as fuck circumstances they were watching it in. Gywneth Paltrow gets her long due comeuppance for being an absolute tool, Damien Chazelle gets the love even though he has that godawful goatee and David is set an 18 hour Vietnam War documentary marathon.
