Den of Geek is reporting that Duncan Jones, director of Moon, Warcraft and (ahem) Mute, has intimated that his next project is a movie of 2000AD’s Rogue Trooper!
Reviews of Mute, Peter Rabbit, The Hurricane Heist and A Quiet Place
Mute, finally, gets reviewed, along with Peter Rabbit, The Hurricane Heist and silent horror A Quiet Place.
Simon, Mat and Claire return to the Beehive pub, Swindon, Wiltshire for their 50th Episode of the Admit One Movies podcast. Recorded over two days, the show contains a look at Solo: A Star Wars story, a discussion of Netflix’s refusal to show anything at Cannes, a week after Cannes refused to show anything that Netflix submitted (sour grapes?).
Sony’s Peter Rabbit with a miscast James Corden as the voice of lead character gets reviewed, Simon and Claire finally get round to reviewing futuristic noir film Mute from Duncan Jones. Simon provides the shortest ever review of Rob “The Fast and the Furious” Cohen latest film, The Hurricane Heist with Maggie Grace. Finally Mat and Claire hold each other’s hands through innovative horror film A Quiet Place with Emily Blunt.
Thanks to Back of the Grid F1’s Tom, Chris & Stu, and Greg from The All Seeing Guys, both BritPodScene members, wishing us a happy birthday. These guys do really excellent podcasts and I urge you to check them out!!
Admit One Movies returns with a podcast episode stuffed with goodies.
Spielberg’s homage to Spielberg, Ready Player One, hits screens this Friday, but Simon’s already seen it at a preview and let’s you know if this meta-blockbuster is worth your ten quid.
Alicia Viklander takes up the impractical vest of Lara Croft from Angelina Jolie in the new Tomb Raider film. How does it fare against its predecessors, the long back story of the games, and current action adventure films. Once again Simon has braved the multiplex and reports back.
For those homebody’s about, both Simon and Claire have seen Alex Garland’s latest film Annihilation, starring Natalie Portman and Jennifer Jason Leigh and both agree that this should have been a cinema release. It isn’t, it’s on Netflix, but it is still a cracking sci fi horror that is smart, clever and meaningful.
We were going to also review Duncan Jones’ Mute, but time ran away from us, so that will appear in a later episode.
Mat hasn’t been to the cinema, but he has got some good news stories, James Corden’s Peter Rabbit gets some surprisingly venomous criticism from the threesome, none of whom have actually seen it, and there are the usual banter, jokes and insults.
Note: The pub was extremely busy on Wednesday night and we’ve tried to clean up the audio as much as possible, in some places I apologise if the background noise is too much.
