TV Shows We've Been Binging

Alex and I discuss the shows we have been binging of late, with some rather interesting ones being thrown into the mix. You would NEVER associate us with these types of programmes! We talk about our favourites, discuss the good and bad points of what we have been binging and talk about why we think people should go watch them. We also talk about the shows were are most looking forward to coming back to our screens either the rest of this year or next! If you are looking for some shows to...


Books into Films

Alex and I discuss our favourite books we would like to be turned into films or even TV shows. We look at possible casting for our favourites, as well as where we think they would sit in terms of the current crop of films and tv shows being spat out at a canter. As per, we go off on random tangents discussing Corrie & Eastenders, Game of Thrones, misendeavours of previous incarnations, animation and food. We also play some very dubious linked music to films that were originally books!

We worked with the guys on last years event and did a previous podcast about the charity and convention, so this was like old friends meeting up for a chat. Not only do we cover the awesome plans for expansion of the Con, the amazing work they have done, the reasons why they do what they do and the origin of the whole day, but we also find out that JJ has never...


Disney pt 2

Alex and I WALTz (get it...) down Disney Main Street once more, looking at Disney films from a slightly different (and often via a ludicrous tangent) way. We talk about Disney's old films continuious ploy to kill off someones family member and use that as a way to push the character forward, we look at the Anti-Heroes and heinious villains in the old and modern day films as well as give Alex 30 seconds to name as many Disney films as possible (he fails miserably btw!) With tangents including...


Star Trek pt 1

Alex and I delve into the films of Star Trek, from OS (Original Series for those not in the know) through Next Gen (Next Generation) and onto the reboots. We look at how each film has expanded on the corresponding series and how they moved the characters on, or not, and the overall feel of each film. We also discuss our favourite parts and compare how each film holds up in this day and age. We throw in some fun facts and give our very "high horse" opinions on each of the films, disecting...


Star Wars Pt 1

Alex and I talk about the original trilogy of Star Wars films, whilst dealing with the ridiculous heat this heatwave is throwing at us, with intertwined tangents that are mostly relevant to what we are talking about! We give our verdicts on the original trilogy as well as throw in some fun facts. We rank the films, and the peripheral films thereafter as well, before rolling off the cliff with tangents. Our Twitter followers get a shout out as well for their contributrion to the show, and we...


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

Alex (after he decides to turn up...) & i look at The Peoples Champion, Dwayne Johnson and his rise from WWF (yeah I said it and what?)to Hollywoods most paid actor in 2017. We look at his early beginnings in acting, his typcasting and his breaking the mold to become one of the most bankable actors on the planet. From 2001's The Mummy Returns to 2018's Skyscraper and beyond, Dwayne Johnson has shed his moniker of "The Rock" and is now a actor, producer and director in his own right. We also...


Creating Original Ideas

Alex & I take a break for the slating and downbeat and look to invigorate those who are looking to be creative, be original, be different and challenge Hollywood's remake culture at the moment. This was all Alex's idea by the way! Haha! We discuss the most important areas to help you be more creative and original and how that relates to films and tv shows, giving examples of where those who have challenged and been different have shone through and taken us on a journey through new processes....


Why The Ghostbuster Remake Was So Poor!

Trigger Warning - Do not listen if easily offended by anything remotely negative! Alex & I finally delve into a real film hate of ours, and that is Paul Fieges abomination that is "Ghostbusters" (2016) This film is the standard for crap films! Seen a crap film, thats a "ghostbusters (2016)" From the terrible writing, "comedy" that doesnt hit the mark, direction and lacklustre chemistry from the cast; not the mention the ludicrously cringey "jokes" thrown around in the film and the body...


Edgar Wright

Who...


Rising Stars Under 30

Alex, Andrew and I pick out our Rising Stars of the Film and TV World who are set to make a big spolash in the future, if they continue on their paths, and what sort of films we would love to seem them in to help push themselves into the limelight even more. We discuss each one on merit and look at their acting style and where we believe would be the best path for them moving forward in their career. We laugh, we cringe and we make some bold statements!


Unpopular Opinions

Alex, Andrew and I trawl through our twitter feed and look at the unpopular opinions of our followers, giving our take on them, as well as our own unpopular opinions. Is Shaun of the Dead really that bad? How can Lord of the Rings be so well loved? What is up with The Shining? And is The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi really worse than The Phantom Menace? We answer these and many more on our journey of annoying and triggering our listeners! What is your unpopular opinion? Let us know!

Ready Player One: Book vs Movie

Alex and I look at the first of a few epic movies being released over the coming months. With both of us being huge fans of the 80's and gaming; Ready Player One offers up the best of both worlds.
