Check out our weekly podcast, in which we chat about films, TV comics and gaming.
Based on a discarded script by Joel and Ethan Coen and directed by frequent collaborator, George Clooney, Suburbicon tells the story of a family man who gets in over his head.
In this, Andy Serkis’ directorial debut, Andrew Garfield plays Robin Cavendish, a man who is only given months to live after being diagnosed with polio. The film focuses on his relationship with his wife, Diana (Claire Foy) and their efforts to live a normal life.
People don’t make films to win awards.
Or at least I don’t.
Yet, that doesn’t mean it isn’t very nice when awards come along. It’s a collective of people telling you that you did a good job and that’s really cool. I’ve won a couple of tiny, barely significant things in my short life as a filmmaker, but even they made me feel ‘accomplished’.
On the episode this week: The podcast comes from its new home! Rob and Matt chat about the scandals in Hollywood and the potential Lord of the Rings reboot. They then review Mario Odyssey, talk about Bioshock, chat a little about Stranger Things and then go on for a big spoilery chat about Thor Rangarok.
Thor: Ragnarok comes on the back of two underwhelming outings for the God of Thunder. Thor: The Dark World is less than popular and the more that time passes, the more it seems that everyone hates Age of Ultron. Both are fine films, in fact, they’re both perfectly enjoyable. But that doesn’t change the fact that Ragnarok really needed to be a win for everyone’s favourite Nordic God/ alien.
