DREDD, STRAW DOGS, THE JUNGLE BOOK
For all you Dave fans out there (both of you) we can only apologise and offer our deepest condolences in his absence. Unfortunately Dave had to attend a funeral and wasn’t in the mood to turn on the charm and record a podcast, you’ll have to make do with Moid and Russ. Dave will return in a couple of weeks. The show must go on.
When Moid and Russ get together they tend to take the opportunity to clear a backlog and deliver as many reviews as they can. So, after a brief chat about Russ’ tattoos we have 13 movies to ponder, prod and pick apart. ENJOY.
ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESQ (2017)
Both Russ and Moid were big fans of Dan Gilroy’s previous film, Nightcrawler, Russ watched this with high expectations.
As a lover of quirky independent film Moid has had this on the radar for a while. As if to prove it’s meta credentials this is as quirky and indy as the subject matter but with Michael Fassbender entombed in a big paper mâché head. It’s as weird as loveable as it sounds.
GINGER SNAPS (2000)
Trying his best not be out-weirded by Frank, Russ watched this werewolf movie that is based on ginger girls turning into werewolves because they started their periods when a full moon was out? Pretty sure that’s what Russ said, I wasn’t listening.
LET ME IN (2010)
Quite a rarity in the film world. A remake of a great film that isn’t total cash grab abomination. We recommend you also watch the 2008 Swedish original, Let the right one in. Go on, let her in, she won’t bite.
THE DOGS OF WAR (1980)
I think we all agree that we all want to watch this just to experience Christopher Walken doing a full on Christopher Walken.
Oh the pressure. Moid has Judge Dredd and 2000 AD to thank for his love of comics and Russ considers this one of the best adaptations around. What will Moid think? Does anybody care?
STRAW DOGS (1971)
The original and gritty cult classic. Nuff said.
THE JUNGLE BOOK (2016)
Moid still has the original animated film on his List Of Shame but chose to watch this instead. For the second movie in one show we a chance to see the great man Christoper Walken in action.
DRUGSTORE COWBOY (1989)
Matt Dillon, where are you hiding? Somebody give this guy a job, he’s great. Kelly Lynch, Not so much.
SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD (2012)
Admit it, you want to watch this based on the title and the poster? Steve Carell delivers another of those straight faced performances that somehow make you laugh. It’s the end of the world as we know it.
TAKE YOUR PILLS (2018)
This Netflix documentary really hit a nerve with both Moid and Russ. Russ had to have a lie down, and take some pills.
Moid continues his Gosgasm with this unremarkable looking movie. Everything about it looks middle of the road. Will it defy expectations?
I KILL GIANTS (2017)
Let’s not judge a book by it’s cover, but that is an awesome poster. Russ cried like a little girl at this, I think that means he liked it?
