  • 02 Oct Podcast Episode 003 – Alpha and Expressing a Central Story Binary

      This week we get ANGRY at the film Alpha by Albert Hughes, out at cinemas now. What a film! Such a beautiful film with (what we think is) a completely flawed core story. Unless your story works on a fundamental level, unless the value binary of the story is beautifully and thematically expressed, why make the film at all? See Nathan lose his shit and have a breakdown over the ending of the film....

  • 08 Oct Podcast Episode 004 – Venom and Do Anti-Heroes Even Exist?

      We’re back with a new theme tune that will get you dancing, or it did for Will at least (awkward!). We take a look back at the previous weeks’ films then review bad-arse super hero flick Venom (directed by Ruben Fleisher and starring Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams). We thought this might be an “anti-hero” film but on further discussion, do anti-heroes even exist?

  • 05 Nov Podcast Episode 007 – Bohemian Rhapsody and Making a Biopic Sing

      Ok stop everything! Just STOP! EPISODE 7 is out now and you NEED to listen to this one. In this episode we break down the film ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ by Bryan Singer- a celebration of the legacy of Freddie Mercury and the epic band Queen. This one lives in our hearts.
