This week’s episode escalated incredibly quickly, as we find Paddy defending catfishing, and Rob having a good old fashioned rant about the Netflix original film Sierra Burgess is a Loser. We also discuss Trump’s mushroom, Gerard Depardieu, and Apple’s stupid new phones, and come up with yet another epic new film idea: Cyrano de Bandcamp.

What your top five, all time favourite John Cusack films? One of them has to be High Fidelity! On this episode we discuss how much we were pleasantly surprised by it and how well it has aged, and we also talk Fortnite, James Bond, Austin Powers, Hanif Kureishi and how you should tell everyone Die Hard is your favourite Christmas Film if you want them to think you are cool and manly.

Now that we’ve broken the 69 barrier we can get back to watching good films, and we’re starting as we mean to go on with the so-hot-right-now To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before! We also discuss Steve Bannon, mummified cheese, 18 certificate films and how everything is a political act.

Episode #64 - Four Weddings and a Funeral

Stop all the clocks! It’s time to take a trip back to 1994, when the Super Nintendo was the best console, and Richard Curtis smashed the box office with Four Weddings and a Funeral. We discuss Paddy’s heat-related meanness, vanilla ice cream, ‘adequate food,’ angry owls, and have a long debate about the Harry Potter universe and whether wizards are actually bad people.

Episode #62 - The Shape of Water

We’re in love with The Shape of Water! Guillermo Del Toro’s Oscar-winning masterpiece is our film of choice this week, so we talk in-depth about romance between man and fish. We also discuss the chaos in the Tory party, the bigger chaos of the Brexit bin fire, and Paddy is forced once again to be a Sheeran apologist. Key Lime Pie is debated, as is Dog the Bounty Hunter.

Hold on to your swimming trunks, romance fans…it’s the lowest rated film in podcast history this week, as we watch Baywatch (2017)! We discuss Rock The Dwayne Johnson and The Efronator at length, and also talk about body fascism, Love Island, entitled stans, the fucking World Cup, Rob’s Twitter fame, and what Jean-Luc Godard should be doing in the twilight of his career (hint: working with Justin Bieber).

Just like the rest of the world, we’ve got Royal Wedding Fever, and what better way to scratch the itch than to watch a tacky made for TV movie about Meghan and Harry? We talk about Lifetime’s Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance and how it stacks up against its predecessor, William and Kate: The Movie, and also discuss gammon, Enya, the Air Bud Cinematic Universe, Lars von Trier, and geese. Happy Royal Wedding to you all!

Episode #53 - Titanic

This week’s episode is a huge disaster! Not because we aren’t on our usual great form, but because we discuss James Cameron’s highly influential and lengthy disaster-romance, Titanic. We also discuss gardening, gnomes, incels, firm tofu, Vanilla Ice, Nickelback, pan pipes, the profound effect The Scorpion King had on impressionable teenage Paddy, and launch our campaign to provide #Justice4Fabrizio, the character who gets crushed by the ship in Titanic and whose poorly written characterisation needs addressing by James Cameron.
