The one with Blade Runner 2049, Mindhunter, Snowman and Geostorm

The stunning Blade Runner 2049, Denis Villeneuve’s much anticipated follow up to 1982’s Ridley Scott classic, gets the Admit One treatment and, needless to say, both the boys love it.

Also on their good side is another Netflix show, Mindhunter. Directed by David Fincher, with episodes from interesting directors such as Asif Kapadia, and Charlize Theron among the producers, the series has a stunning pedigree.

Also with a cast to die for, including pod faves Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, J.K. Simmonds, Chloe Sevigny and Val Kilmer, comes The Snowman. Simon disliked the book, so Mat went to see it as he quite likes those crime things.

Simon loves a bad film, and many bad films seem to star Gerard Butler. Simon went to see Geostorm, the futuristic political environmental disaster action thriller you didn’t know you wanted, in spaaaaace!

We also look at the crimes of Harvey Weinstein, and not just the movie Chocolat and if ever you wanted proof that we do record live in a pub, we get some fun interruptions from the regulars!

All this and a whopping fifteen minutes of hilarious outtakes – what more could you want? Well, except for some professionalism, obvs.

The one with the Blues as the background music

Yee and indeed Hah as Simon and Mat howl through a show chock full of stuff before the guest blues guitarist starts his set.

In a thoroughly packed hour we discuss the Oscar nominations and celebrate the cruelty of the Razzies. Then it’s off and away with four, yes four, movie reviews. Simon weighs in on XXX: The Return of Xander Cage and the pair discuss Kate Beckinsale’s fifth vampire sequel Underworld: Blood Wars. Mat tells us all about M. Night Shalayman’s Split with James McAvoy and Simon eulogises over La La Land.

We discuss what we’re planning to see next, discuss Euan McGregor vs Piers Morgan all over a couple of pints and a packet of pork scratchings.
