27. Family

April 29th, 2013 · Comments

To mark this year's IDFest in Derby, Joe and Ed have a look at the Family unit on screen. They run down the fine selection of films screening at this year's festival, talk about why directors such as Wes Anderson and Steven Spielberg are drawn to dysfunctional families, discuss the surrogate family units of Boogie Nights and Near Dark and then run down their top ten film families.

They keep it light, with cannibalism, incest and necrophilia only taking up a fraction of this episode's running time.

26. Childhood

April 15th, 2013 · Comments

In the first of an ambitious, multi -podcast series exploring the ages of man, Joe and Ed start - appropriately enough - with Childhood. They discuss what drew them to film as kids, talk about depictions of childhood on film and the difficulties encountered when working with child actors, before running down a top ten of the very best child performances on film.

Predictably enough, there are some tangents. 6 months on, Joe still can't work out what he thinks of Beasts of the Southern Wild, whilst Ed reveals a deep rooted fear of being eaten by a rhinoceros.

As always, listen, enjoy, rate and review!

25. Roger Ebert

April 9th, 2013 · Comments

We thought it'd be remiss of us not to say a few words about the late, great Roger Ebert, who sadly passed away last week.
