It’s been a while… Here’s two films you probably haven’t seen, but you should.
After four long years, we’re back! We’ve skipped the cinema, we’re not talking Tenet. Instead, we’re talking about the series everyone has seen, The Queens Gambit. If you haven’t seen it yet, I’ve included chapters to avoid spoilers.
We all know the States unburdened itself of class systems when it shrugged off the British yoke but our man McClane is nonetheless a working-class stiff. He doesn’t have fancy words or a tailored suit, instead he’s got something better and more essential: integrity. Along with that goes a 12-month backlog of New York scumbags… Continue reading California
This week we climb, groggy and disoriented, from the cryogenic chambers in the fortified underground bunker deep beneath Shoot The Glass headquarters, to bring you another episode of the podcast! For the main event we talk Captain America: Civil War. And we kinda agree that it was a great film. Which is weird, because we disagreed a… Continue reading Captain America: City of Churches
This week we talk Dope, the latest of Cruises’ missions in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation and the Amy Schumer/Bill Hader rom-com Trainwreck. We also say a sad but only temporary goodbye to Pete who is heading off on paternity leave. It lends a somber tone to this episode I think, but really it’s the happiest news there could be. Good luck Pete… Continue reading To Be Continued
This episode we talk Paper Towns and Ant-Man, Pete recommends the THX Optimizer, and for homework we have The Spectacular Now and the excellent interview Kevin Smith vs Edgar Wright. We also give our very first on-request shout-out… the requester remains anonymous and you’ll have to listen to find out who gets shouted to! So remember: whatever you do don’t cross the streams, don’t talk about… Continue reading Abusive Dad Swimming Movie
When you make a sequel, sometimes it’s okay to abandon the depth of the original just to have a laugh. But other times it’s a fucking travesty. This week we talk a coupla sequels with Magic Mike XXL and Terminator: Genisys. For homework there’s Soderbergh’s original Magic Mike and Cameron’s undying, unstoppable classic, The Terminator. So come on down to the gym and feel… Continue reading The Good, the Bad and the Beefcake
Hullo there! This episode Pete reports on some top-shelf TV with the recently-premiered Empire and the recently-cancelled Hannibal before we move onto the main show with Pixar’s latest, Inside Out. We also talk documentary Kurt Cobaine: Montage of Heck and the Melissa McCarthy-starring comedy, Spy. For homework, there’s Terminator Genesys which we’ll be talking about next week but, more importantly, listen to… Continue reading Come as You Are
This week we talk TV with Game of Thrones and just a touch of Veep and Silicon Valley, we briefly discuss whether Marvel is dull, and finally we examine one particular film, a monster that escaped the containment of expectation and rampaged through the box-office, Jurassic World. For homework we have a flick we’ll be talking about next episode, the Melissa McCarthy vehicle Spy. And if you can’t make it to… Continue reading Activate the Death Panel
This week we have a lamentable lack of Pete Wells but a joyous excess of Alec Fraser! Alec is something of a comic-book expert so we talk a lot about the film and TV ventures of Marvel and DC. We also talk Mad Max and discuss in some depth a film we saw just for this… Continue reading Two Wolves
