  • Should cinemas bring back intervals?

    27:41
    'Killers of the Flower Moon' released with a 3 hour 26 minute runtime and in our showing, we were granted an interval, a rare novelty in today's cinema experience. So four members of the Focus Film team have gathered to discuss 3 hour movies and their relevance in today's world. Should we bring back intervals more regularly? And why do 3 hour films perform so well at the box office?Check out our monthly podcast rounding up everything we've been watching recently.

  • Why do we like Horror Movies so much?

    22:43
    All of our friends hide when we suggest seeing a horror...so what is it about the genre that we love so much but others don't?

  • Is Disney+ still worth it?

    28:32
    With prices going up, an endless array of streamers at your feet and a suggestion of adverts on the horizon, it can be hard to always see Disney+ as the charming new platform that we needed in the height of a global pandemic. We sat down to have a chat about the highs and lows of Disney+, and ultimately let you know where we're at with it. Is it something that we will continue to subscribe too?Check out our monthly podcast rounding up everything we've watched in the moon's last orbit and listen to our newest film club where we chat about 'Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves' and 'Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves'.Hosts - Ellis Barthorpe & Gareth BradwickIntro by Charles WitcombeInstagram/TikTok - @focusfilmblogFilm reviews and features - focusfilms.online
