Ep 78 Batman Returns : Do You Expect Us To Talk?

Good evening Batfans… Batman returns in…. well… Batman Returns. Starring a very pouty Micheal Keaton, an erratic Michelle Pfeiffer, a pervy Danny De Vito and Christopher Walken as Jack Skellington Scissorhands set in a Tim Burton snowglobe with a story makes less sense the more you look at it.

Join Becca, Chris and Dave as we discuss Chris breaking the law, Superman apologising for stuff, is this a Batman movie or a Tim Burton movie, what Penguins motives are, the best tag line ever and how easy Batman finds everything.

A-View-to-a-Kill-1985-movie-enter

It’s commentary time again and this time we’ve done something different. Roping in a guest to talk over his favorite Bond film A View to a Kill, it’s the author of Catching Bullets-Memoirs of a Bond Fan, Mark O’Connell. In a commentary track a bit different than normal this feels like an actual discussion rather thaCATCHING-BULLETS-jacket-artwork-03-01-13-661x1024n our usual blow job jokes, so may work without watching the film itself. However we invite you to join us and wave Roger Moore off as we enter a new era .

You can check out Mark’s website for me information on Catching Bullets as well as reviews and various blog posts as well as catch him on Facebook and Twitter. You can also purchase Catching Bullets here.

Ep 20 A View to a Kill : Do You Expect Us To Talk

A-View-to-a-Kill-1985-movie-enter

James Bond is back and this time, he’s older than ever. We bid fairwell to Rodger Moore in his final performance as the super spy and he goes out with a bang. Out to stop Max Zorin with is recycled Goldfinger plot involving microchips that doesn’t make any sense.

Starring (too old for this shit) Rodger Moore as one half of the dream team with Patrick Macnee, a film stealing Christopher Walken, Grace Jones as Grace Jones, Tanya Roberts as a leading lady who only makes the leading man look older, The Chinese Detective and Dolph Lundgren more he was He-Man.

Seven Psychopaths

Seven Psychopaths is the new film from Martin McDonagh. Following In Bruges, it stars Colin Farrell as Marty, an irish writer in Hollywood, trying to write his first screenplay called Seven Psychopaths, in witch he want to be about peace, love and forgiveness. An idea that makes as much sense as the film itself.While attempting to find inspiration, his friend Billy (Sam Rockwell), who runs a dog kidnapping business with Hans (Christopher Walken), tries to help him out by placing an advert for psychopaths to come and visit him for research. Things get messy when one of the dogs belong to psychotic gangster  (Woody Harrelson) who is hell bent on getting his little pride and joy. As the body count mounts up, the film self references itself in a way that doesn’t tie together at all well. The plot cherry picks scenes and scenarios and puts them all together in a self-aggrandising way that is frustrating but is still entertaining.

It is an odd experience watching McDonagh’s second freture length film, as it is attempts to be away too cleaver for its own good while being completely self indulgent with no sense of direction. However it is tons of fun in a cool and hip way that Tarantino writes. Thanks largely to the fast humorous dialogue and perfarmaces. Farrell plays down on this luck and out of his depth well, Rockwell turns on the crazy to entertaining levels, Harrelson finds the right balance between comedy and menace while Walken does the Walken we all know and love. It’s just a shame as Seven Psychopaths would be an instant film classic if it weren’t narratively a complete mess. Just like a room filled with….. well seven psychopaths..
