giles-and-elisa-shape-of-water.gif

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).

Episode #54 - Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance

harry-proposal.gif

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

anigif_enhanced-buzz-18107-1381216685-15.gif

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.

We’ve somehow made it to 50 episodes, and what better way to celebrate than by watching something completely different to our usual fare and discussing the beautiful garbage that is Jupiter Ascending? Witness the majesty of this insane film as we take you on a journey through space and time, and discuss gammon, punching fascists, star signs and much more!

It’s a Disney special this week, as we argue about the live action Cinderall vs the live action Beauty and the Beast! We also discuss sports video games, Metallica, whether geese can drive or not, and come up with an amazing amount of ideas for new Disney and Star Wars films. Enough that Disney will be sending us a cheque soon.

Unfortunately there’s a crackle on Rob’s audio that starts about 40 minutes in that can’t be edited out. Sorry about that. We’ll be back to normal next week.

If you don’t know this week’s film, you’re a greenhorn! It’s another sixties outing this week, as we watched the Audrey Hepburn & Cary Grant classic Charade. Paddy also comes down with the affliction of a curious inability to pronounce Alfred Hitchcock’s name, and we discuss stupid people’s smart people, Cloverfield, Tayto crisps and Dave Benson Philips’ inevitable entry into the House of Lords in the future.
