The one with Logan Lucky, Detroit, It, and American Made

Steven Soderbergh’s new heist thriller Logan Lucky, with Channing Tatum, Adam Driver and introducing some guy called Daniel Craig, gets Mat’s attentions. Simon casts his eye over Tom Cruise’s latest American Made and Katherine Bigelow’s powerful Detroit. Mat then puts on his bravery trousers and faces the latest cinematic version of Stephen King’s It.

Otherwise  there’s a distinct lack of news, and Celebrity Deaths (Yay Mickey Rourke still lives), so this week you get a whole fistful of reviews and, sadly, Any Other Business.

The one with Atomic Blonde, The Hitman’s Bodyguard, The Dark Tower and Williams

Reviews of WilliamsAtomic BlondeThe 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.
