Check out our weekly podcast, in which we chat about films, TV comics and gaming.
On the episode this week: We re-hire a director for Star Wars episode 9 (hypothetically obviously, we don’t have that much power in Hollywood). Reviews of Logan Lucky, American Made, Detroit, God’s Own Country and It.
We also chat about our favourite book to film adaptations and realise that we haven’t read enough books.
Tom Cruise’s latest tells the ‘real’ life story of Barry Seal, a commercial Airline pilot turned CIA pilot, turned drug smuggler, turned DEA informant.
Kathryn Bigelow’s latest film tells a tense, uncomfortable and moving tale of what happened to a group of guests at a Detroit motel, on one night during the riots of ’67.
The Logan Brother’s (Channing Tatum’s ‘Jim’ and Adam Driver’s ‘Clyde’) aren’t exactly the sharpest tools in the draw but somehow, and you’ll probably have to suspend disbelief a bit to buy into it, they manage to plan a huge, complex and clever heist at the biggest Nascar race of the year.
Now two seasons without the guidance of George RR Martin’s text, Game of Thrones season seven ramps up the pace and delivers some big plot developments but unfortunately this is at the expense of story depth and character development.
