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

This week we take on Chris & Justin from The Casual Cinecast in our 16th Pod v Pod, including a draft on Coming of Age films! These guys are great, be sure to check out Justin's movie 'Camino' over on Amazon!
 
We then go through some responses to our Question of the week, and give our 'Top 5 Rob Reiner Films'. We then find out the results of the first round in our 'Best 1960's Film' tournament.
 
After all that, we kick back and discuss what else we've been watching recently, including 'The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part', and one of the latest Netflix films, 'Triple Frontier'
 
So come on in and join our journey!

With Dean being away recently, our schedule was a bit too tight to get to a completely new recording. So instead it's time to release our breakdown on The Grand Budapest Hotel, an episode we did for our Patrons during our Wes Anderson films series. Join us as Daniel knows too much about Wilhelm Screams, Dean gets a lesson in aspect ratios, and we both discuss our favourite drops of alcohol.
 
As well as the breakdown, we give our 'Top 5 Wes Anderson Films' and find out the results from our Academy Awards Challenge, and the results of our Pod v Pod v Pod v Pod in our 'Films in the IMDb Top 50' draft. We also find out which two films made it into the Grand Final of our best 1950's film tournament!
