Stay Over Fifty

This episode had a bomb on it set to explode if we went too slow! Keanu saved us, of course, but not before we broke all the laws of traffic and physics and discussed August: Osage County, Blackfish, 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle and The Spectacular Now. For homework we’ve got listener and friend… Continue reading Stay Over Fifty

The Porkins Chronicles

This episode Pete saw blockbuster The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and poetry slammer Kill Your Darlings, I saw Enough Said starring the late, great James Gandolfini, and we both saw the new adaptation of Stephen King’s Carrie. And we shamelessly hit the Star Wars hype to discuss the two lucky fans who’ve been hired to build R2D2’s and the… Continue reading The Porkins Chronicles

Basements, Boats and Ivory Towers

Take-offs and Landings

This week on Shoot The Glass we only talk about one movie but it’s a doozie: Alfonso Cuaron’s latest, Gravity. We also have a look at some TV, starting with Joss Whedon’s latest Marvel product Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and finishing with analysis and comparison of the final episodes of Breaking Bad, Dexter and The Sopranos. The… Continue reading Take-offs and Landings

It Takes Brass Balls To Trust The Talent

The title is only coarse, of course, because it refers to the monologue delivered by Alec Baldwin in Glengarry Glen Ross, David Mamet’s classic movie based on his own play. And it’s the title because in this episode, Pete and I talk about Kevin Spacey’s fantastic MacTaggart Memorial Lecture at the Edinburgh International Television Festival.… Continue reading It Takes Brass Balls To Trust The Talent

Ice Queens, Story Beats and Kickin’ Ass

This week on Shoot The Glass we talk about the unimaginatively titled Jobs, political thriller The East, post-postmodern superhero flick Kick Ass 2, and Neill Blomkamp’s second feature Elysium.

Shoot The Dogs

I’m in a rush! So this is going to be the shortest post ever. This week we talk about Red Obsession, Much Ado About Nothing, Behind the Candelabra and The World’s End. Also, Pete and I disagree! Which is weird. And we’re not quite sure what to do with it. And the homework for this week… Continue reading Shoot The Dogs
