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!

#25 - Donnie Darko / Our Top 5 Films Of 2001

Take off that stupid bunny suit and put your best man suit on as we get into one of our longest breakdowns yet, 2001's Donnie Darko! Listen on as Daniel reminisces on his own sleepwalking story, Dean tells everyone to 'Chut Up!', and we both end up debating about the presence of a higher power.
 
As well as the breakdown, we also find out the result of last episodes Pod v Pod III, have a quick chat about the new 'Best Popular Picture' award added to the Oscars, we look at our next set of matches in our Best Director Tournament, and we give our 'Top 5 Films of 2001' (That aren't on the 250 list)
 
So come on in and join our journey!
