Charlize Theron taking on role of wronged Fox TV news anchor Megyn Kelly. If the film is done well, this could be a great role for Theron.
The stunning Blade Runner 2049, Denis Villeneuve’s much anticipated follow up to 1982’s Ridley Scott classic, gets the Admit One treatment and, needless to say, both the boys love it.
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.
Also with a cast to die for, including pod faves Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, J.K. Simmonds, Chloe Sevigny and Val Kilmer, comes The Snowman. Simon disliked the book, so Mat went to see it as he quite likes those crime things.
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 movie Chocolat 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.
Reviews of Williams, Atomic Blonde, The Hitman’s Bodyguard and The Dark Tower
The local podcast with most of its listeners in the USA returns, with a working audio file this time (sorry, so sorry) and a load of goodies for you lucky fans.
News and gossip to begin with, mostly DCEU focussed with discussions of The Batman and the next Wonder Woman (though not about Patty Jenkins giving a bitch-slap to James Cameron).
A swift run through those notable film stars who have passed on since we were last on air. And one who hasn’t (#Rourkewatch).
Simon has a review of family documentary Williams which is less about the legendary F1 team, and more about the family behind the name.
Mat reviews the Charlize Theron 90s set Euro-action flick Atomic Blonde, also starring James McAvoy.
More Euro-carnage as Simon reviews Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson in The Hitman’s Bodyguard, which also stars a foul-mouthed Salma Hayek.
Final review this week sees Mat cast his eye over Idris Elba and Matthew McConnaughey in the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King‘s legendary series of novels, The Dark Tower.
Wowsers we disappear for a couple weeks and all hell breaks loose.
So the boys are looking at a plethora of trailers including Justice League, Baby Driver, Transformers (again) and some little space movie the internet is excited about. We also discuss the writer’s strike, a possible end for the MCU and why you should never nick a scooter when Tom Hardy’s around…
Reviews of Their Finest, Unforgettable, The Belko Experiment and Fast and the Furious 8.
