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

There's no failure to communicate here! Today we're breaking down the 1967 prison classic, Cool Hand Luke. Listen along as Daniel wonders about a hot box glory hole, Dean lets us know his skills in eating a special kind of whole egg, and we both give our best attempts at Southern American accents.
 
As well as the breakdown, we give our 'Top 5 prison films' and find out the results of Pod v Pod IX in our 'MCU films without Iron Man' draft. We also start up our new tournament series of best movies per decade, starting with the 1940's, and find out what movie we'll be watching next!
 
So come on in and join our journey!
