Nope not these ones

Recording LIVE from the original home of McYapandFries  AKA my apartment, myself and Gavin are once again back in the same country and able to discuss the latest movie news and provide reviews of Arnie’s Sabotage; Philomena starring Dame Judi Dench & Steve Coogan; ransformers:Age of Extinction and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Once again this week’s show should mark the start of another period of regular podcasts and nonsense so stay tuned for more from us.

Here’s this week’s Show Notes:

One Night Stand

by on Jun.01, 2014, under Podcasts

Gavin has returned to KL and before he has to jet off again we’ve managed to fit in just one show where we got to chat about all the recent film news that piqued our interest as well as review Godzilla, X-Men: Days of Future Past & Tom Cruise’s latest Edge of Tomorrow.

For any listeners in Singapore you can catch Gavin live on stage in the play RED by Blank Space Theatre at the Esplanade Theatre Studio from July 10th -13th, with tickets available for purchase from here

In the mean time I’ll activate our top secret co-host back-up PODCAST-HOST-X program and start throwing guest stars into our podcast hunger games.

Hopefully we should be able to keep to somewhat of a more regular schedule (like I haven’t heard that before).

Enjoy the podcast here’s the show notes:

McBlank and Fries

by on Apr.28, 2014, under Podcasts

Spielberg's first attempt at Dinosaurs didin't go so well

We’re back (again) and I’m pretty sure we’ve used this picture before, and will no doubt use it again.
In Gavin’s continued absence, McYapandFries will continue with regular guest stars such as this week’s irregular contributor Chi Ren Choong,  who joins us to provide his thoughts on Captain America:The Winter Soldier, Transcendence and Snowpiercer.

Over the coming weeks and months we’ll try and build up a rotating cast of guest podcasters, so if YOU have a decent microphone and internet connection, let us know and  you could join us on the show!

Get in touch via the contact us form here or by sending an email to [email protected]! We might not be able to record with everyone due to technical difficulties… but we’ll damn well try!

Take Me To Dinner Behind The Scenes Interview

by on Mar.13, 2014, under Podcasts


In case you weren’t aware (like we haven’t been plugging it for months) Gavin’s feature film directorial début, “Take Me To Dinner”,  is released  in Malaysian Cinemas today, 13th March 2014!

In honour of this achievement, I sat down with Gavin and his wife/producer on the film Trina to chat about their experiences making their first film, with almost no budget, and trying to dig a littler deeper than the usual short and sweet press interviews.

We discuss topics such as the conception of the film , how was it working together, the pressures of no-budget film making, getting married in the middle of production, the importance of on set recording and the secret comic book links in the film!

We mostly managed to avoid major spoilers, so sit back and relax and listen to find out what it takes to make a great dinner.

Take me to Dinner is showing at select GSC Cinemas around KL at Mid Valley, Pavilion 1 Utama and Gurney Plaza. Click here for more information and bookings

FAT PIG! (Live in Singapore!)

by on Feb.20, 2014, under Newspost

For those of you wondering why there hasn’t been a podcast for a while the reason is two-fold:

1) Gavin has finally finished rehearsals and can now be found treading the boards nightly at the DBS Arts Centre, Singapore, performing in Pangdemonium’s production of Neil La Bute’s Fat Pig. The show runs until 2nd March 2014 so if you are around Singapore I highly recommend you catch Gavin in the flesh, so to speak.

Tickets are available at the Sistic website here : and here’s a quick Youtube clip if you want a taste.


2) Gavin’s most recent stand-in just had a baby so that put the end to that!!

If you’ve got a love of movies, a decent microphone, PC and internet connection and feel like filling in for Gavin, hit me up at [email protected], on Twitter at, or using the ‘Contact Us’ form here 0n the site and we’ll see about setting up a show!

This could be a bold new experiment!!

A film By Gavin Yap

by on Jan.23, 2014, under Newspost

As Gavin is away in Singapore rehearsing for a play, we’ve not yet had time to record our first podcast of 2014 , but rest assured, plans are afoot to remedy this.

In the meantime here’s a quick update on Gavin’s film, yes, GAVIN’S FILM.

As regular listeners should know, last year Gavin directed his first feature film called “Take me To Dinner” (I’m also in the film, albeit in the background briefly in one scene) and it’s finally opening in selected GSC cinemas in Malaysia on 13th March 2014!

A darkly comic romantic drama, here’s the trailer to whet your appetite

…and look! Incontrovertible PROOF that Gavin directed it! Look at those hands!


In the run up to the release the production team have also been releasing some (pretty funny) behind the scenes featurettes,I’ve included the  the first two at the bottom of this post, however there’ll be more to come so if you want to see them all then subscribe to the “Take Me to Dinner” page on your social media platform of choice:

Here’s the featurettes, I’ll add the others as they are released:

The Yappies Awards 2013

by on Dec.13, 2013, under Podcasts

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is almost upon us and yet another year has almost passed us by. During this week’s podcast, as well as the usual news and reviews of the live action Gatchaman movie & The Lone Ranger, we took the opportunity to sum up the year in movies with our first “Yappies” awards, featuring such categories as “Movies so fucked up I didn’t even bother watching them”, “Soundtrack most likely to induce cardiac arrest”, “Best use of a Britney Spears song in a movie” and many more .

This is probably the last podcast for 2013 but if you have your own personal awards categories for this year’s crop of films, feel free to send them in to [email protected], or tweet them to Gavin or I  and we’ll share them on the next podcast.

Here’s the show notes:

and finally, even though it was released AFTER we recorded the podcast here’s a link to the awesome first trailer for the return of Godzilla
