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.
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 movieChocolat 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.

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, moviereviews. Simon weighs in on XXX: The Return of Xander Cage and the pair discuss Kate Beckinsale’s fifth vampire sequelUnderworld: 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.
Christopher Nolan, off the back of stupendous success with the Dark Knight trilogy, Inception and Interstellar has chosen to give us Dunkirk, a film of the saving of a large chunk of the British army during the incredibly successful German offensive of 1940. Ultimately the retreat from France was a defeat, but the ‘miracle’ of Dunkirk was a victory as the astonishing rescue operation saved the bulk of Britain’s fighting force at the time and gave the country hope that they could possibly fight back against the Nazis.
I like the look of this, it’s not skimping on scale or visuals, the effects, sets and costumes look real. What you don’t get from the trailer is any sense of the characters we’re going to meet (with the exception of Kenneth Branagh) and in a film of this size, it is our relationship with the characters that will make or break it.
We’ve seen this before, but here’s a second trailer. It looks like more of the same, but that’s not a bad thing as the original John Wick was a blast of fresh air, wrapping a so-so revenge plot in bombastic action sequences and an interestingly detailed world of archaic rules, honour codes and fifties tech.
Looking forward to this – also compare and contrast with the XXX3 trailer… aaand discuss.
Okay this looks terrifically muddled, but it does have the Rock (who is worth a watch in anything he does) and it does have Ephron (who is maturing into a very good comic actor) and the two of them together appear to have a lot of chemistry.
So I guess your feelings about this film will depend on your feelings about Amy Schumer. Personally, and I don’t know how she does it, I find she successfully treads a very fine line between comedy and vulgarity and this trailer is definitely right up Amy’s street with desperately embarrassing situations and explicit dialogue wrapped up in a slightly desperate “I try to be good” attitude.
Anyway the real highlight is Goldie Hawn, in her first film since 2002. She looks amazing and still has all the comedy chops that made her famous.
This looks filthy, but possibly hilarious. However am I the only one who thinks the kidnap plot is a bit un-necessary? Surely there’s enough material with an awkward mother/daughter holiday situation?
