Cloud Atlas is finally opening in the UK but never mind, Mama is out too.
Jason Staveley and Brendon Connelly talk about movies. Finally. Includes a run down of the Superbowl trailers.
Jason Stavely and Brendon Connelly talk about movies. There's a quick repeat performance from Jamie Alexander too.
This week: a Korean action thriller, The Yellow Sea; a preqboot sequel-remake, The Thing; and a comedy about cancer, 50/50. None of them is a total washout but it's probably not a surprise to say they're not all knockouts either. [podcast_display] More on each of these, in fact, over the next couple of days.
I'm not at my healthiest today, I'm afraid, but I was doing okay at 8am when I appeared on Glide FM for a round-up of some new releases. [display_podcast]
As well as our tickets for screenings of Cabin in the Woods across the UK, we've also got these other ones just for the Oxford screening – right here in my hometown. Plenty to go round, lots for those of you who finding your way here from the plug I've just given on Glide FM. […]
Sophie really managed to put me off my stride in the middle of this week's Friday film slot on Glide FM, sending one of my points about We Bought a Zoo spiralling off into a total dead end. Nonetheless, here's the whole thing. Ish. [display_podcast] Both 21 Jump Street and We Bought a Zoo are […]
After Sophie had a week off for "baby stuff", the Monday DVD and Blu-ray review returned to Glide FM in its normal form this morning. Which essentially meant me leaving out key bits of information but leaving in too many daft jokes. I also appear to suggest that the inclusion of Michael Fassbender instantly gives […]
Young Adult has just rolled up in Oxford so it garners a late mention on my Glide FM Friday Film Review, but there are new releases too, namely The Raven and John Carter. [display_podcast] For more on John Carter, check out Michael's glowing recommendation from Monday. And then go see it.
Here are the DVD and Blu-ray reviews as they appeared on Glide FM this morning, but there's actually a little more to come, later on. [display_podcast] While these actually went out, I was fast asleep having been up all night with The Oscars. I'm pleased they hadn't been re-edited to swap my comments around from […]
Here's my Friday film review from Glide FM. I don't know why I was so excitable this morning, but I was. We have a quick look back at The Vow, then look forward to Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists – though, to be clear, this isn't an embargo-breaking review. No. Scout's honour. [display_podcast] Come […]
Quite a lot to squeeze in, both in audio and text this time.
Trying to do a radio film review slot on about two hours sleep didn't really work in my favour this Friday, so in lieu of the whole, messy affair, here's a promo that was cut from the "best bit." Singular. I saw a screening of 21 Jump Street on Thursday night and while I was […]
One of these is an overlooked gem, so pay attention at the back. I don't want you to miss it.
Last Friday's film review slot from Glide FM took its time reaching my inbox, but it finally made it. At first we talk about meeting Kermit the frog because, naturally, everybody has questions about that. Then I touch on Carnage again, and finally get a few words in about The Descendants. But, sadly, it wasn't […]
Delayed by the Great Bleeding Cool Meltdown of January 2012, here's my round-up of some DVD and Blu-ray releases to reach UK shelves this week. There are four titles under discussion: Yamada, Drive, Crazy, Stupid Love and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy. [display_podcast] That was recorded very early in the morning. I feel like a lie […]
I wasn't able to be in the studio on Friday for this week's film review on Glide FM, but I eventually managed to make a very excited call to Sophie, somewhere near the end of the show. We manage to squeeze in comments on The Woman in Black, Carnage, Underworld 3D, Chronicle (again) and W.E […]
This week's two most interesting releases are Coriolanus, reworking Shakespeare as a modern war film, and Haywire, which contains some of the best action you will ever see. Ever. Also on the slate is Chronicle, which is coming on the 1st of February in the UK and the 3rd in the US. I'm sure I'll […]
Starting today, I'm going to be giving a weekly round-up of new DVD and Blu-ray releases on Glide FM. I was hoping to have the exact timing locked down so I could point out how to listen live, but that's still pending. Here, however, is the first week's chat, taking in The Guard with Brendan […]
Here's an excerpt of me from GlideFM on Friday morning, talking about Shame, one of the week's new releases. I also catch up on Goon which came out last week in the UK, but is still some weeks off in the US and its native Canada. [display_podcast] I'll be running one of these every Friday […]
