Gary Oldman Filmography: Sid Vicious to Winston Churchill

With the recent release of "Darkest Hour", a bipoic of Sir Winston Churchill starring the effervescent Gary Oldman, there was only one way Alex & I were going to go. We go through Gary Oldman's back catalogue of films, discuss some of his more prominent roles as well as his lesser known, and compare how he has matured as an actor. I thrown in a couple of very little known (or not so much maybe?) facts about Mr Oldman, as we go through our favourite characters, their impact on the film...

Fresh from a Christmas and New Year break, Alex and I jump straight into the most overrated films and actors/actresses. We don't hold back! There are just some films and franchises that people rave about but are blinded by the truth. What do we really think about Twighlight? Was La La Land really Oscar worthy? Which Star Wars film does Alex think is supremely overrated? Who is the actor who has just flittered about and had 1 or 2 good roles? We reveal all, and more, in this weeks show,...

Batman vs Superman - Fixed!

Alex and Andrew join me as we use the release of Justice League to look at, and fix, its predecessor, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. We discuss what went wrong with the film, how it impacted Justice League, and look at the areas we would change. Alex throws in a brand new storyline which would not feel out of place in a new DCEU franchise, and it makes a lot of sense. It would change the landscape for a bang average Justice League film. We look at replacements for certain parts, look...

Build Your Own "Suicide Squad"

Andrew and Alex join me as we battle it out with our own "Suicide Squads". Each of us has a team of 5 characters from any movie ever made; although there are certain rules that we explain in the show, and we must argue the case for each member of our team as to why they would win in a fight, or lose, and then as we each reveal our team, argue how each team would fair against the rest. Once we have fought over our teams, we fight over a "Combined FTVShow Suicide Squad" and pick 1 person per...

Interview with Kate Davies-Speak - British Horror Actress

I had the amazing privilege and pleasure to interview British Horror Actress Kate Davies-Speak, who has also starred in the TV Sci-Fi Mini-Series, Horizon. Kate has been in an abundance of British Independent Horror movies and has really found her niche in the roles she plays; who happen to be strong, centered women (not your usual girl-girl characters often portrayed in films), but who also have exceptional story and character arcs, something that Kate says attracts her to the roles she...

We go into detail about the differences in how each one varies but are all similar in the over-arching storylines. We...

What Happened To Will Smith?

Joined by Alex, we both attempt to answer a burning question in my mind: What Happened To Will Smith? The once stellar action hero of Bad Boys, Independence Day & Men In Black has suffered badly at the Box Office over recent years and has seemingly fallen off the radar in big smash hits (this includes Suicide Squad by the way, but thats another podcast altogether!) so we try to get to the root of this, talking about his early work, more recent films. the issues they have faced and his...

Tom Hanks: Acting Royalty

With Andrew and Alex joining me, we go through my Twitter, Facebook & Instagram Poll on everyone's favourite Tom Hanks films & whether we agree with the final results, giving our own top 5 as well. We also dissect some of Tom Hanks standout films, some unfamiliar films, and also play a few quotes, whilst adding in a couple of amazing songs, with an absolute nostalgia fest at the end of the show! With so many films to go through, it is a hard slog, and even harder to pick a top 5 because of...

The Rise & Fall of Adam Sandler

I go it alone this time round due to unforseen circumstances and discuss my favourite Adam Sandler films, where I think he went wrong, and when he started to decline. I am a big Sandler fan and this pained me but, we all no it to be true, so I give my thoughts on this, along with playing some excellent music from his films. At least most of them have a great soundtrack.
