by on Aug.21, 2023, under Newspost

Yes! We’re actually (relatively) current with our latest podcasts, as Iain and Gavin share what they thought of “Barbenheimer”. Did we love Greta Gerwig’s Barbie? Did Chris Nolan’s Oppenheimer blow our minds?

Find out in a show where we also review Malaysian film Hungry Ghost Diner, directed by friend of the show We Jun Cho. Iain also shares the result when he finally sat down to check out William Fiendkin’s Sorcerer.

As usual you can contact us at the social media accounts below to let us know what you thought of the show or anything else you want to share with us. Did you manage to Catch Hungry Ghost Diner in the cinema? What did you think?
What was YOUR Barbeheimer experience? Did you wear pink for Barbie? Did you dress up for Oppenheiumer?
