Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior

Ep. 310

Accidental post-apocalypse/Fallout season with Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior. But first, Alex has a random newsblast? Join us as we take our usual detour into mourning the death of practical effects, ponder if this film invented the post apocalypse, and generally just enjoy a well-made film. We watch them occasionally.

(When Sam keeps saying 'The man with no name' he means A Fistful of Dollars, obvs.)


Next week, it's Annihilation!

Then we sadly have to watch the film we're here to see. And it ain't great. But at least it's a good excuse for Alex to tell his story about his copy of Horton Hears A Who...Here are the far superior cutscenes from Jedi Knight - Dark Forces 2Next week, prepare for a bumper pod as we give Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace the full SFRS 2.0 scientific treatment.See the new list!Play along at home!Get in touch!Visit the Website!Watch us on Youtube!See the old list!Download the soundtrack!Buy our Merch!And we're on Instagram and Facebook too!

    This week we watch Ghostbusters II, except Chris who got the wrong film. But first, we have a little bonus spoilercast about Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, which unlocks a classic Chris Rant­. And then we watch the main feature, discussing the impact of The Real Ghostbusters, what you want from a sequel, the bad vibes that come from good vibes, and I think our third passionate defence of Peter Venkman.Next week, it's Alex's birthday pick, Cyborg!See the new list!Play along at home!Get in touch!Visit the Website!Watch us on Youtube!See the old list!Download the soundtrack!Buy our Merch!And we're on Instagram and Facebook too!

    This week, we continue the modern Planet of the Apes franchise seven years (!) after watching the first instalment. Join us as we marvel at the CG, complain about everything else, get into a very, very long discussion about post-apocalyptic survival (yet again) and we learn that Chris is prepared to play any game, no matter the game. Game on.Note for Sam's brain: You are confusing Jason Clarke with Jai Courtney because they are both charisma vacuums and were both in Terminator: Genisys!Next week, it's another rebooted franchise, JJ Abrams' ode to the lens flare, it's Star Trek!See the new list!Play along at home!Get in touch!Visit the Website!Watch us on Youtube!See the old list!Download the soundtrack!Buy our Merch!And we're on Instagram and Facebook too!
