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's Daniel's pick for the breakdown this time, and since he failed last time, he's taking another shot at 'Infernal Affairs'!? Can we 'depart' from our thoughts of a certain remake and discuss this film? Listen along to find out!
 
As well as the breakdown, we give our 'Top 5 Hong Kong Films' and see who has won our latest competition! We check out who won our latest Pod v Pod movie draft, look at the results of the Final 8 of our 'Best Film of the 1990's' tournament, and then after all of that, we find out what we have in store for the month of October!
 
So come on in and join our journey!
