It's a new year and a new decade, so Ed and Emily meet it head on by trying to find some films to look forward to in 2020. They also talk about their distinct disinterest in the Golden Globes, Universal no longer even pretending to push Cats for awards, and the blame game between the members of The Rise of Skywalker's creative team.

With awards season creeping around the corner, it's time for Matt and Ed to engage in the annual tradition of looking at the movies coming out in the final months of the year that they're really excited about. There's also a lot of talk about Tetris for some reason.

September 3rd, 2018 · Comments

As film festival season heats up and studios start gunning for that number one spot at the Oscars, it can be a little bewildering trying to figure out what movies to look out for. You're in luck, though, because Ed and Emily are here to tell you which films coming out between now and the end of the year you should get excited about. This preview has everything: Predators, plaintive Japanese dramas, yelling about Nicole Kidman.

It's a brand new year, which means it's time to look ahead at what 2018 has to offer. After laying out their New Year's Resolutions, Matt and Ed sift through the release schedule to highlight some of their most anticipated movies coming out between now and August (with one October release that they forgot to remove from the episode plan), as well as some which they don't have high hopes for but which could still be interesting. They also talk about German New Year's traditions, become possibly the first podcast in history to joke about the long-forgotten ABC sitcom Teen Angel, and accidentally come up with a title for the next great Sundance sensation.

You can see the sketch Dinner for One, which Matt talks about in the intro, on YouTube

To mark the end of the summer blockbuster season and the rapidly approaching glut of prestigious autumn releases, Ed is joined by returning guest and friend of the show John Hunter to discuss the movies that they're looking forward to over the next four months. They also run down the best movies of the summer, try to figure out which awards season movies are secretly Cloverfield sequels, and mourn the death of Tobe Hooper.

Minisode: A Twin Peaks Primer

May 21st, 2017 · Comments

In this minisode, Ed breaks down Twin Peaks for newcomers (or old fans who may have forgotten the salient details) ahead of the long-awaited revival of the show. He lays out the plot (not to mention the subplots), the reasons why the show's original run fell apart, and why people are so excited about the return of a show which ended ignominously more than 25 years ago. Ed also pays tribute to Car Boys, the recently completed YouTube series from Polygon.

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.

155. Autumn/Winter Preview 2016

October 3rd, 2016 · Comments

After a short break caused by a) Ed being on holiday and b) Matt accidentally sleeping through a scheduled recording session, the boys are back with a vengeance in this extra long, extra punchy episode, during which they discuss the films they are most looking forward to between now and the end of the year. They also catch up on some recent news, ponder the falls from grace of Johnny Depp and Mel Gibson, and come up with possibly the best band name of all time.

Happy New Year! As is customary, a new season of Shot/Reverse Shot starts by looking at the release schedule and considering what cinematic delights the year ahead has in store. Matt and Ed run down the blockbusters, independent curios and outright oddities that will be hitting screens in 2016, and make the first reference to So Solid Crew that anyone anywhere has made in at least 10 years.

September 28th, 2015 · Comments

After an unscheduled week off, Matt and Ed are back with a vengeance to talk about all the exciting and/or interesting films scheduled to come out between now and the end of the year. In addition to discussing whether or not they're anticipating the likes of The Martian, Crimson Peak, The Revenant and Spectre, they talk about the Emmys, franchises that Ridley Scott could revisit instead of the Alien/Prometheus universe, and whether all movie biopics are built upon the idea that "behind every great man is a great woman in a terrible supporting role."

January 11th, 2015 · Comments

Happy New Year! We're back and we're looking forward to what lies on the horizon in 2015 in our traditional preview. We talk about the films we're excited about, the ones that we're curious about, and the ones that are sure to dominate the cultural conversation for weeks and months at a time. We also highlight some TV shows that we're excited about, and offer (hopefully) tantalising glimpses of what we have planned for the podcast itself in the year ahead.

63. Autumn/Winter 2014 Preview

August 31st, 2014 · Comments

Now that the summer is over, it's time to look ahead and consider what the last few months of 2014 have to offer. Joe and Ed continue their annual tradition of looking at the Autumn/Winter schedule - with its weird mix of awards contenders, would-be blockbusters and unwanted films left to wither and die - and cherry pick the best and most interesting films that the seasons have to offer. Despite this clear, easy to follow structure, they still manage to get distracted by talk of Irish kickboxing, pitch a spiritual sequel to The Producers, and explain why Cameron Diaz's contributions to music should be scrubbed from existence.

52. The Alternate 100: Preview

April 9th, 2014 · Comments

It's been a while, but the boys return to whet your appetites for their forthcoming (and slightly delayed) year-long project, The Alternate 100, in which Joe and Ed attempt to list 100 great films but with some strict selection criteria. This episode lays out the rules they've set themselves, explains why the first draft of the list was 5% Walter Hill films and features a play-along-at-home drinking game. Despite this episode being less than 12 minutes long, they still find a way to wander off topic, specifically talking about the new season of Game of Thrones and Hodor Hodor Hodor.

As per usual, listen, enjoy, rate, review and Hodor!

In the first episode of 2014, Joe and Ed pause to mark the fact that they've made it to 50 episodes, an achievement of sorts, that neither seem able to comprehend. Giddy with a sudden sense of invincibility, they announce a multi-part podcast for 2014, a mysterious series of episodes that will make up something called The Shot/Reverse Shot Alternate 100.

After the excitement of that announcement, the boys settle down to preview the year ahead, including sexy operating systems, six armed warrior angels and wisecracking CGI raccoons. In addition, tabs are also kept on cinema's least wanted, with 2014's first Michael BayWatch update.

As usual, listen, enjoy, rate and review!

September 30th, 2013 · Comments

With a disappointing summer now thankfully just a speck on the horizon, Joe & Ed take a look ahead at what cinematic treats await us at the back end of the year. From the biggest winter blockbuster to the worthiest of all Oscar bait, the boys have it nowhere near enough covered.  

Also, the film 'Alfonso Cuaron's Space Rhino' pitched in this episode is now under copyright.

21. 2013 TV Preview

February 7th, 2013 · Comments

As promised at the end of the last episode, Joe and Ed fulfill their contractual obligation and cast their eyes over the veritable feast of TV coming up this year. Show favourites Arrested Development, Mad Men, Breaking Bad and Community all return, 30 Rock draws to a close and fresh faced young bucks S.H.I.E.L.D and Under the Dome vie for position on the autumn schedule.

As always, the focus of this episode wanders, most specifically becuase Joe is surreptitiously watching Couples Retreat in the background....

Listen, enjoy, rate and review!

Season Two of Shot/Reverse Shot kicks off with an epic look at the cinematic year ahead of us. Joe and Ed take a shifty at everything from the wonkiest blockbuster to the most gongworthy Oscar bait. We preview the awards season, speculate as to what will be the movers and shakers of the year and then run down out top ten most anticipated films of the coming 12 months.

As per usual, there are tangents aplenty, including a new Crimewatch-style feature and a seemingly unending list of mispronounced surnames.

Listen, enjoy, rate and review!

September 18th, 2012 · Comments

As a fairly low key (Dark Knights and Avengers aside) summer draws to a close, Joe and Ed look forward to the back end of 2012, where a thrilling mix of Oscar baiting nonsense, blockbusters and indie flicks all fight for their attention. Away from the silver screen, the boys also have a look at the best of what US TV has to offer, most notably the mouth watering proposition of NBC's Fall comedy schedule.

As usual, listen, enjoy, rate and review!
