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.

 

We play out on some of the stylings of Kent DuChaine…. He’s awesome, check him out www.kentduchaine.com.

Looks like a modern day take on Kelly’s Heroes, with a lot more explosions, and considerably worse acting. May be worth watching if you are in an Expendables mood…

 

The Circle: April 2017

Hem… moving on to another Europacorp production, this is Tom Hanks and Emma Watson in The Circle:

I haven’t read the book, but it seems to be a dystopian look at a world ruled by Google. Not much to go on in the trailer, but the subject matter and cast are interesting. I reckon this is one to watch.

 

Spectral: December 2016

Netflix now and the Netflix only release, Spectral:

Reminds me a lot of Final Fantasy: the Spirits Within, but looks  interesting with a great cast and terrific special effects . Perhaps a bit cliched, but significant in stating Netflix’ intentions.

 

Patriots Day: February 2017

“Marky” Mark Wahlberg reunites with his Lone Survivor and Deepwater Horizon director Peter Berg for Patriots Day, centered around the Boston bombing 2013.

I was skeptical about this film when I heard about it. Oh no, here’s a load of American jingoism again. both trailers look like they are trying to tell a true story carefully and respectfully. Deepwater Horizon was similar and extremely well done, so I have high hopes for this. Still can’t forgive them the loss of an apostrophe, though….

 

The Mummy: June 2017

Universal is determined to have another universe franchise so is re-inventing it’s legendary Monsters – you know Frankenstein, Dracula and, kicking it all off, The Mummy with Tom Cruise.

Naturally the Cruiser does lots of running, there’s some intrigue (is Cruise dead or not?) Russell Crowe being enigmatic and Sofia Boutella as the Mummy. Lots of interesting ideas and concepts, so probably worth following, though I’m a bit disappointed that it’s clearly not as fun as the Steven Sommers capers of the 2000’s.

 

Transformers: The Last Knight: June 2017

Back to , well, madness really. Transformers: The Last Knight

Anthony Hopkins on voice over, triple-headed dragons, “Marky” Mark, robots, explosions, Nazis, knights on horseback and a plot involving King Arthur. I want some of what they are smoking!

 

John Wick: Chapter 2: Feb 2017

John Wick was one of the action standouts of recent years, so it’s good to see a sequel with little change in John Wick: Chapter 2

So he’s got another dog, and another car, he’s in another city and has gained the wrath of Ruby Rose and the support of Laurence Fishburne. The first one was really really good, this looks more of the same.

 

XXX:The Return of Xander Cage: January 2017

More Ruby Rose in XXX: The Return of Xander Cage

Big name cast – terrible looking movie.

 

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2: April 2017

Finally, let’s end on some joy – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2

Colourful, funny, beautifully animated, and full of all the snarky, piss-taking merriment we loved so much in the first film. Drax is especially funny and I cannot say enough about Baby Groot.
