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

Sharpen your blades because we travelling east for this episode! That's right, we've got our first Akira Kurosawa film to breakdown, and it's his 1961 film Yojimbo, which was heavily influenced by American Westerns, and also inspired that very same genre after its release. Join us as Dean explains what gruel is, Daniel gets infatuated with an eyebrow, and we both get into an argument about whether this film can be classified as a comedy.
 
As well as the breakdown, we also answer some listener questions, have another battle in a movie quiz and find out the results of the last two movie drafts (As well as do this weeks draft on 'Best movies remade from foreign films'). We then talk about what else we've seen during the week, including 'Ocean's 8' and the new Pixar film 'Incredibles 2'.

What?! No movie breakdown this week? Fear not faithful listener, for while we take this week off of our regular content, we present to you our 'Mega Movie Draft'! 10 films each, drafting 'Movies That Should Be In The Top 250' These are our personal favourite films that for some crazy reason, aren't in the IMDB Top 250 list, and therefore void of our intense breakdown. Some you might love, some you might hate. Others you may not of seen (And the rest you haven't even heard of), but one thing is for sure, we haven't gotten rid of our ever present arguing and laughing.

We've ticked off a bunch off big time directors so far. Hitchcock, Chaplin, Tarantino, Nolan. Now it's time to add one of the biggest, if not THE biggest: Stanley Kubrick. So where are we starting? Why not his earliest work on the list 'Paths Of Glory'. Join us as Dean can't tell the difference between a cottage and a castle, Daniel has an unpopular favorite scene, and we both have a discussion over the difference between 'Villainous' and 'Villainess'.
 
As well as the breakdown, we also have a another battle in a movie quiz and find out the results of last weeks movie draft on 'Best movies with a female villain' (As well as do this weeks draft on 'Best movies from the 1950's'). We then talk about what else we've seen during the week, including the latest film in the Star Wars franchise 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'.
