Shot/Reverse Shot Presents: The First Annual Anna Faris Memorial Award for Making the Best of a Bad Situation

January 9th, 2017 · Comments

It's Awards Season, and with a gap in the schedule between the Golden Globes and the Oscars, Ed decided to leap into the fray with Shot/Reverse Shot's first ever awards ceremony: The First Annual Anna Faris Memorial Award for Making the Best of a Bad Situation, in which praise is showered on the actors who did good work in bad movies, or who at the very least made shrewd choices when deciding to sign on to be in bad movies. Mainly, it's an opportunity for Ed to talk about how much he enjoys Billy on the Street.

Here is Dan Olson's video on the editing in Suicide Squad, which Ed mentions at one point and is well worth half an hour of your time.

- There's no clip for The Angry Birds Movie because that film is poison even in audio form.

167. 2017 Preview (with John Hunter)

January 2nd, 2017 · Comments

Happy New Year, listeners! As is customary, we start a new year and a new season with a look ahead at what the world of film has to offer. To help in that endeavour, Ed is joined by this episode's guest, writer John Hunter. As they go through each month up to and including August, they wonder if xXx: The Return of Xander Cage will be Vin Diesel's Unforgiven, try to divine which films will enjoy a healthy afterlife of being endlessly repeated on BBC2, and attempt to maintain their cool when talking about the Twin Peaks revival.
