Episode 198: Darren Arranofsky’s Mother!

by on Oct.15, 2017, under Podcasts

The latest film from Darren Arranofsky (Black Swan, Requiem For A Dream, Pi, Thew Wrestler), Mother!, seems to have split audiences  down the middle (well split the audiences who bothered to go and see it), despite its all star cast of Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris, Michelle Pfeiffer and BIG IDEAS!
What do Gavin and Iain think?  Controversial, compelling or just crap?

Check out our latest podcast to find out!

35 years after the release of Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic Blade Runner, we are finally getting a sequel in Blade Runner 2049; a sequel that no one could have dared to expect.

Is it any good? Does it  measure up against the original?

On this week’s podcast Iain and Gavin discuss their history with the original and their thoughts on the sequel, without spoilers, for the first 20 minutes of the podcast. After that (and a brief word from Roy Batty) we dive into spoilers for the rest of the podcast, so you can avoid that section if you’ve not seen the film yet

 

Let us know what you thought of the film, as well as our review, by tweeting us at @mcnastyprime or  @gavyap and by emailing us at [email protected].

Episode 196: Twin Peaks The Return

by on Sep.26, 2017, under Podcasts

Not a review, not a recap, this week’s podcast is a rambling (and hopefully entertaining) chat between Gavin and Iain about Twin Peaks: The Return and the genius that is David Lynch. After a tribute to Harry Dean Stanton (who passed away on the day of recording) we talk about our experiences with the old series,  our favourite moments and performances from the new one and speculate wildly about what any of it means, so be warned there are spoilers from the very beginning of the podcast.

We highly recommend you finish Twin Peaks season 3 before listening to this podcast.

As Iain mentions repeatedly in the podcast, we are no experts in Twin Peaks lore, however, if you do wish to listen to some entertaining and insightful experts, then we highly recommend The Twin Peaks Rewatch podcast from the Idle thumbs Network which filled in a lot of blanks for Iain.

As always you can let us know what you thought of Twin Peaks return after 25 years (and our podcast!) by emailing us at [email protected], or reaching us on twitter at @mcnastyprime and @gavyap!
