The one with Sully, Moana and Allied

Twas the week before Christmas … and Simon and Mat are back in the pub doing what they do moderately well with a bumper edition of Admit One Movies packed with comment and attitude.

In this episode the boys raise glass to Kirk Douglas not being dead, discuss the Golden Globe nominations, moan about the long-running Passengers trailer and the short running Silence trailer, love Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 trailer, discuss The Mummy trailer and the wider Universal Monsters franchise, puzzle over Baywatch, puzzle further over The Fate of the Furious and further still over XXX: The return of Xander Cage and the phenomenon of trailers for trailers while considering Spiderman: Homecoming.

Reviews of SullyMoana and Allied round out a very full show.
