253. Sheffield DocFest 2019

June 17th, 2019 · Comments

Whilst Ed has his trotters up in Florida, Matt and Emily hit the wonderful Sheffield DocFest - now in it's 26th year - for a few days of films, masterclasses and *checks notes* algorithmic perfumery. They muse over the wonder of the conversation with Werner Herzog, the sheer inventiveness of the Alternate Realities stranded and get thoroughly flumped by more Harvey Weinstein than they are prepared for.

Bonus - Avengers: Endgame

May 1st, 2019 · Comments

In this special, spoiler-filled episode, Matt and Ed discuss Avengers: Endgame. It's a wide-ranging discussion that features key plot details from the start, so probably don't listen to it if you haven't already seen the film, and in addition to cataloging the good and bad in the movie, it also encompasses the impact of the MCU, Disney's increasing dominance of film and television, and the many ways in which the comics industry has screwed over writers and artists.

246. 1999 - Peak Vosloo

April 7th, 2019 · Comments

Double Jeopardy, The General's Daughter, Payback. These are just some of the timeless classics that were released in 1999, alongside utterly forgotten duds like Fight Club, The Talented Mr. Ripley, The Blair Witch Project, The Matrix, The Sixth Sense, All About My Mother and Eyes Wide Shut. Matt, Emily and Ed assemble to discuss some of their favourite films from a vintage movie year, tease out some of the themes shared by a broad and disparate array of great films, and look at how Hollywood has changed over the past 20 years. Ed also enters some sort of fugue state at one point when the subject of the upcoming Cats movie comes up.

January 14th, 2019 · Comments

All three hosts are reunited this week to look at what a new year in film has to offer. Matt, Ed and Emily each pick one movie from the first eight months of 2019 and advocate for why they think they could be good or interesting, and along the way they discuss their New Year's resolutions, the plot of the Clint Eastwood movie Space Cowboys, and the moral turpitude of Dr. Robotnik.

184. Stephen King (with Kayleigh Donaldson)

October 30th, 2017 · Comments

It's Halloween, and Matt and Ed are joined by returning guest Kayleigh Donaldson to discuss a suitably spooky subject: Stephen King, the prolific and influential horror writer who, between It, Gerald's Game and 1922 (less so The Dark Tower) is having something of a moment. They also discuss the Phantom Thread trailer, pick over the complete implosion of Suburbicon, and they pitch Terrence Malick on a potential film for his purported return to more conventional filmmaking.

154. Pan’s Labyrinth at 10

September 12th, 2016 · Comments

It's been ten years since the release of Guillermo del Toro's haunting fairytale Pan's Labyrinth, a film which was hailed as a masterpiece almost as soon as it debuted and whose reputation has only grown over time. To mark the occasion, Matt and Ed discuss the film's many good qualities, debate its legacy, and what impact it had on del Toro's career. They also get excited about the films debuting at the Toronto International Film Festival, Ed reminisces about the time he got to meet del Toro and almost cried, and Matt reveals how deceased Irish comedian Frank Carson shattered his chances of becoming a professional footballer.

55. Community - Redux Redux

July 11th, 2014 · Comments

Dan Harmon's Community has been cancelled. No it hasn't. Yes it has. No it hasn't. Yes it has. No. It hasn't.

Such is the hokey cokey nature of the much loved show's future that even Joe and Ed can't keep up with it. This episode was recorded after the show's latest demise, only for it to be revived before the episode made it to air. Joe and Ed have recorded a special amendment to bookend the episode and take great care to not speculate any further for fear of having to record this all over again. And lets face it, that's not the first time this has happened is it?
If you enjoy the show, why not give it a review on iTunes? You know you want to.

22. Ask Us Anything

March 12th, 2013 · Comments

After spending more than a year choosing the subjects on which they show off their freeform waffling skills, Joe and Ed decided to hand the talking stick to you - the audience - to pick the topics of discussion. Selecting a wide range of questions volunteered via Facebook and Twitter, the boys find themselves debating hypothetical dust ups between nightclub bouncers and Jedi Knights, wondering why films seem to be so long these days and pondering on the scarcity of unicorns in motion pictures.

As always, listen, enjoy, rate and review!
