The one with mother!, Wind River, Kingsman: The Golden Circle and Star Trek: Discovery

Simon and Mat return with reviews of Wind River, the latest from Sicario and Hell or High Water scribe Tyler Sheridan, Darren Aronofsky’s mother! with Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem, and the riotous Kingsman: The Golden Circle starring seemingly everyone (and Mat tests Simon’s movie knowledge on the cast).

The Trek fans in both of them then insists on checking out the latest Star Trek series, Discovery, with Sonequa Martin-Green, Jason Isaacs and Michelle Yeoh.

The pair rip into the lacklustre trailer releases, examine the career of Harry Dean Stanton, explain the importance of X Atencio and #Rourkewatch has an actual newsworthy tale of everyone’s favourite Mickey and the bizarre link to retired footballer Rio Ferdinand.

Due to stupidity, we ended up alongside the Beehive Cricket Club’s AGM and they’re … … passionate. Apologies for the background noise.

Movie Night 

Simon here,  off to the movies again. This time to see Hell or high water,  the new Chris Pine/ Jeff Bridges heist movie. 

I’ve heard a lot of good things about this film, so I hope it delivers. Bridges looks made for the role of the sheriff and Pine and Foster,  together again after Their Finest Hours, seem compelling. 

We’re recording on Thursday so I’ll let you know what I think real soon.
