Mank

12/30/2020
Mank is in the dock this week. A letter away from what it really is or a satisfying release? Ausy and Alex are on the defence, talking about the beautiful direction and relevant political themes that make this a shoe in at the Oscar's next year. Gav and Joel prosecute, pointing out the dense script that takes no prisoners and chaotic plot structure.

Odd Thomas

11/9/2020
Odd Thomas is in the hot seat this week. A dead cert or does it give up the ghost? Dave and Gav argue this is a cheesy but fun adaptation of a Dean Koontz novel that showcases Anton Yelchin and is fun for everyone. Joel and Alex very much disagree, pointing out the unbelievably bad script, awful performances and grating soundtrack. All this and an impression of Willem Dafoe and a quiz about Dean Koontz adaptations.

The Crazies

11/2/2020
The Crazies is on trial this week. An infectious zombie romp or does it make you lose your mind? Gav and Joel argue this remake improves on the original and has a strong lead trio that you can't help but get behind. Ausy and Dave don't believe this has enough of the social commentary of the original and plays fast and loose with the rules of zombie films. All this and a genuine, corn-fed, home-grown Iowa impression and a topical quiz all about pandemic movies.

Hubie Halloween

10/26/2020
Hubie Halloween is on trial this week. The fright of your life or a yellow stain? Ausy and Gav defend this week, pointing out the fun, daft humour that we need in 2020, with an undercurrent of social commentary on America in the 21st Century. Dave and Alex could not disagree more, saying the lack of jokes and poor taste make this a shallow waste of space. All this and an impression of Hubie himself and a quiz all about Adam Sandler roles!

Under The Skin

10/19/2020
Under The Skin is in the hot seat this week. Out of this world or does it go up in flames? Alex defends this sci-fi horror, talking about the beautiful imagery, a career topping performance from Scarlett Johansson and an original approach to story telling. Gav and Ausy are on the attack, pointing out the boring extended shots that go nowhere and the absence of any meaningful dialogue. All of this with a Scottish impression and a quiz all about films set in the land of the brave.

Crimson Peak

10/19/2020
Crimson Peak is on trial this week. Built to last or a house of cards? Joel has picked this for Halloween Horror Month and defends it with Dave. They point out the masterful direction by Guillermo Del Toro and excellent performances by a top flight cast. Ausy and Alex look at the predictable plot and uninteresting script that make this a boring dud. On top of this we have an impersonation of an English gentleman and a quiz all about horror films!
