Also discussed: The Florida Project (2017), Spielberg (2017), Dunkirk (2017), Bad Boys (1995). What have we got ourselves into?!?! This week on Nic, Tys and Videotape, we're discussing a film that epitomises the idea of the 'soulless Hollywood blockbuster', the 1999 action-comedy(?), WILD WILD WEST!

Episode 64 - MAN ON FIRE (2004) plus SO MANY TRAILERS

Also discussed: John Wick (2014), Safe House (2012). This week on Nic, Tys and Videotape, we're discussing a movie that has barely been thought of since its 2004 release, the Tony Scott directed, revenge epic, MAN ON FIRE!

Are you ready ladies and gentlemen, for a very special episode of Nic, Tys and Videotape?? This week, it's definitely not pretty, but we manage to stumble our way through a rambling and barely insightful discussion of the 1988 music-video-compilation/gangster-drama/fever-induced-nightmare that is MOONWALKER!!

Also discussed: Cobra Kai (2018), The Simpsons Movie (2017), Waterworld (1995).
