Dreamgirls 2: Divas Reunited

Dreamgirls 2: Divas Reunited

February 22, 2021

Originating as a hit Broadway stage show, Dreamgirls tells the story of a popular sixties girl group who bear a striking - but entirely coincidental - resemblance to The Supremes. The film version starred Beyonce in the Diana Ross role, but it was former American Idol alumni Jennifer Hudson who stole the show, winning an Oscar in the process.

In this week's episode, we discuss our highlights - including Eddie Murphy channelling James Brown, RnB songs clearly written by middle-aged white people and a whole lot of vocal showboating.

We also brainstorm some drinking games, check in with our listeners and pitch sequel ideas to bring the movie back to the big screen. Because after all - you can't keep a good diva down!

The First Wives Club 2: Don’t Get Mad, Get Everything!

The First Wives Club 2: Don’t Get Mad, Get Everything!

February 15, 2021

A surprise smash hit in 1996, The First Wives Club proved the pulling power of three brilliantly funny women of a certain age. Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton star as a trio of recently jilted spouses who reunite and vow vengeance on their former husbands. 

On this week's episode we break it all down - including Bette Midler's unflattering knitwear, Goldie Hawn's impressive lip work and of course, that song... We also brainstorm some drinking games, check in with our listeners for their reactions and, of course, pitch some sequel ideas!

The Greatest Showman - aka the story of how an able-bodied white man crawled over the backs of the less fortunate on his way to fame and fortune... with songs!

Tune into this week's episode to hear our full, unfiltered take on this musical sensation from 2017 - including Hugh Jackman's indeterminate age, world-conquering Soprano singers who sound suspiciously like Kelly Clarkson impersonators, another thankless wife role for Michelle Williams and many, many hat switches!

Reviving Pleasantville

Reviving Pleasantville

February 1, 2021

Released in 1998, Pleasantville was a disappointment at the box office, but quickly developed a cult audience as stars Reese Witherspoon and Tobey Maguire became Hollywood A-listers. 

In this week's episode, we discuss our reactions to the film, including the groundbreaking special effects, some surprisingly raunchy gags and William H. Macy's heartbreaking quest for a home-cooked dinner.

January 25, 2021

Before Schitt's Creek, comedy legends Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara played an equally dysfunctional but endearing married couple in Christopher Guest's brilliant dog show mockumentary Best In Show

In this week's episode, we react to everything from Levy's left feet to Jennifer Coolidge's inspired ad-libbing and some genuinely impressive canine performances. We also pitch some sequel ideas, compare our own dog-owning experiences and brainstorm some drinking games.

BONUS | Year End Review - The Films of 2020

December 31, 2020

It's time to say goodbye to the hell year that was 2020 - but before we go, we're taking one final look back at the films we watched this year.

Cinemas may have closed, but we still managed to seek out a fair few new releases this year, from the Oscar class of 2019 to the increasingly ambitious efforts from Netflix, Disney+ and other dominant streaming platforms.

Tune in to hear out thoughts on everything we saw together, and apart, over the past twelve months. As always, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for staying with us - we look forward to another year of classic movies and ill-advised sequels in 2021. 

See you on the other side!
