With help from Quotal Recall, Theme Park Films, Beyond the Boxset, JOJcast and Flixwatcher, Kieran and I say goodbye to the 60's with an Oscars-style awards ceremony celebrating the best of the decade.
For our final film of the 1960s, we discuss the Billy Wilder classic, 'The Apartment'.
Along the way we discuss 'Mad Men', the youthful good looks of Alec Baldwin, the best ever Woody Allen film (according to me), Christmas Eve drinking, hypochondria, 'Almost Famous', Viennetta and work x-mas parties.

In this episode I discuss the Stanley Kubrick films 'Spartacus' (about a slave-turned-gladiator who leads a revolt against the Romans) and 'Lolita' (about a man who becomes obsessed by a teenage girl).
Next episode: 2001!
In this solo episode I discuss the Woody Allen film 'Take the Money and Run', giving the film a British cast in Recastarama, talking about a underseen gem of a movie from Christopher Guest and discussing the issues surrounding talking about the work of Woody Allen.
In this episode Jake and I discuss the Burton/ Taylor classic 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?'
Along the way we discuss graffiti, Nicholas Cage doing Shakespeare, the brilliance of Julianne Moore, an all-dog version of this film ('Who's Afraid of Virginia Woof') and much more.
In this episode Kieran and I discuss the western classic, 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly', the third part in Sergio Leone's 'dollars trilogy' starring Clint Eastwood.
Along the way we discuss Metallica, Deadwood, the Kill Bill films, cartridge pens and much more.
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? In this short, solo episode, I get confused over what is actually happening as I watch Martin Scorsese's debut feature-length film 'Who's That Knocking at My Door'.
In this episode Jake and I discuss the black and white horror classic 'Night of the Living Dead' by director George A. Romero (RIP).
We discuss the impact of this film (inc. Romero's own 'of the Dead' franchise) as well as discussing a zombie crossover with British sitcom 'The Good Life', our favourite Kevin Spacey films, the Dave Franco film 'Nerve' and I retell 'a two Magnum Saturday'.
*Note- This episode was recorded prior to the passing of George A. Romero.
In this mid-week solo episode I discuss two legit classics set in and around World War 2, 'The Great Escape' (with Steve 'Bullet' McQueen and Sir Richard 'Jurassic Park' Attenborough) and 'The Sound of Music' (starring Dame Julie 'Mary Poppins' Andrews and Christopher 'Up' Plummer).
Along the way I touch of the British love of losers, I repeatedly use the phrase 'Blind Blofeld' and I imagine a brief crossover between these two films.
