Film Reviews

Long time friends Daniel & Dean get together to breakdown every movie on the IMDB Top 250 list, giving their own light hearted thoughts, rankings and any general banter along the way. Along with any listener reviews and questions, the guys also battle it out with other podcasts in movie quizzes and movie drafts (That you the listener can vote on) in what we call ‘Pod v Pod’, as well as briefly discuss any other films they’ve watched recently. So come along and join the journey!

Episodes

It only took us 7 episodes before we hit our first foreign film, and on this podcast we tackle the 2014 Argentinian film, Wild Tales. Being an anthology film, does that hinder it compared to a full length feature? We go through each of the 6 short stories, discussing their connective themes and giving our rankings of all 6. Dean gives us his alternative titles to each story, while Daniel learns what a cabin chief is.
 
We also discuss our favourite films that aren't in the top 250, and Daniel drops a surprise announcement on Dean, as well as bringing in a new segment. And as usual we talk about other films we've seen recently, including Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread, and the new Marvel sensation, Black Panther.

With a incredibly long movie, you need an incredibly long podcast, and that is what we have delivered today with our breakdown of the 1984 Sergio Leone classic, Once Upon A Time In America. You can hear the joy in Deans voice as he expresses his fondness for this film, Daniel talks about the complexities of Max, and we discuss the ambiguous ending in deep detail. We also have a huge backlog of films we've seen recently, including most of the Best Picture nominations for the Academy Award, as well as settling the bet from the last podcast. All this and more!
