The one with Ready Player One, Annihilation, Tomb Raider, but not Mute

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.
