Last Action Hero

November 28, 2021

Roland Emmerich‘s 2012

Roland Emmerich‘s 2012

September 19, 2021

The trouble with Roland Emmerich films is that they're all essentially the same movie. In this week's podcast we react to 2012, one of his many identikit end-of-world thrillers featuring much CGI destruction and precious little character development.

Tune in to hear our thoughts on John Cusack phoning it in, mid-movie Bentley commercials, the unsung heroism of Gordon the Plastic Surgeon and much more, including drinking games, listener submissions and sequel pitches!

August 22, 2021

When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie teamed up in 2005 for Mr & Mrs Smith, the result wasn't just a hit movie - it was a pop cultural sensation. 

In this week's episode, we revisit the film that spawned both #Brangelina and #PoorJen - does it hold up now that the tabloid madness has died down?

Join us as we discuss uncomfortable domestic violence, bizarre editing, a complete lack of villains and much more - plus drinking games, listener submissions and sequel pitches!

Armageddon 2: Harry‘s Last Stand

Armageddon 2: Harry‘s Last Stand

May 24, 2021

When it comes to 90s Blockbusters, they don't come much bigger - or dumber - than Michael Bay's Armageddon, a bloated disaster epic with a relationship to science and characterisation which could best be described as 'loose'. 

In this week's episode, we try to find some good in this much maligned movie, while also pitching some sequels to bring this cash cow back to the big screen - with or without Bruce Willis and his distracting frosted tips...

Shadow in the Cloud 2: Babies in Space

May 17, 2021

A slightly lesser-known pick than usual this week, but as soon as we saw this bananas high-altitude thriller starring Chloë Grace Moretz, we knew we just had to talk about it!

Spoiler warning - we strongly recommend watching this film blind if you can! Go seek it out, then come back to hear us discussing [REDACTED] [REDACTED] and holy sh*t [REDACTED]!!!

Seriously, it's a ride.

Something Wild feat. The Contrarians

Something Wild feat. The Contrarians

May 9, 2021

He may have hit paydirt with his 90s classics Silence of the Lambs and Philadelphia, but Jonathan Demme's mid-80s road movie Something Wild remains one of the late director's most stylish and beloved works. 

On this week's podcast, Julio from The Contrarians stops by to share his thoughts on everything from Jeff Daniel's amazing dad dancing to a credits sequence for the ages, and much more...

True Romance 2:Elvis Has Left The Building

True Romance 2:Elvis Has Left The Building

April 19, 2021

Based on an early script by by Quentin Tarantino, but directed by popcorn maestro Tony Scott, True Romance is a genuinely wild combination of styles with an insanely stacked cast of early 90s stars - from Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette as the unfeasibly gorgeous romantic leads to hilarious supporting turns from Brad Pitt, Gary Oldman, Samuel L Jackson and many more.

In this week's podcast we discuss Slater being technically miscast but weirdly perfect, Arquette's brutal but badass scene with James Gandolfini, Gary Oldman's craziest role ever and much more, plus drinking games, listener submissions and sequel pitches! This one's quite a ride!
