  1. Jackie Chan is the featured actor for this very warm Pandy editing special, including the limited return of jingles! In this highly choreographed episode The Brothers Wilson marvel at Chan's out-of-type acting in the recent Netflix film The Foreigner, gasp at the sheer physicality and badly dated jokes in Police Story, and endure Chris Tucker's voice in Rush Hour. Also, questions that are answered include: What happened at friend-of-the-show Richard Paterson's stag do? Why is Jackie Chan the Prince of Gotham? Which supporting actor in one of the films is also a high-profile pornography star? And stay tuned for the end-of-show musical spectacular. [ 2:21:16 || 68.2 MB ]

  9. International Year on Hey, an Actor! leads to a focus on South Africa's very own Charlize Theron, recorded on the 30th birthday of our very own Andrew "Pandy" Wilson! The birthday boy and his brother of ill-repute take in their subject's Oscar-winning performance as a real-life serial killer as dramatized in the 2003 film Monster, as well as early career hit The Cider House Rules, and recent spy action thriller Atomic Blonde. Stay tuned to the end to see why one supporting actor's name is so bothersome, whilst The Brothers Wilson again grapple with the dynamic of recording in the same room! And where in the world will the next actor choice take our hosts? [ 2:36:41 || 75.6 MB ]

    This week on Dread Media, we're covering movies with wrestlers in them. They run the gamut from independent pet project to massive nine-figure budget blockbusters.

  19. The Brothers Wilson finally dive into world cinema as part of International Year, as they look at actress, martial artist, and Bond girl Michelle Yeoh. From the nuanced performance in the lead role of Aung San Suu Kyi biopic The Lady to West-pleasing wire-fu action flick Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and the all-out insanity of 1980s Hong Kong martial arts movie Yes, Madam, this month's selection is certainly diverse! Also, there's the imagery of British commentator Katie Hopkins as a martial artist, discussion of when biopics should be produced, and the next spin of the globe as Ian and Pandy look out for their next international representatives. [ 2:11:48 || 65.5 MB ]
  20. Dave and Ian welcome you to their penultimate podcast on Wonderfalls. In "Safety Canary," Jaye and Eric go on their first date, but the animals have other plans for Jaye that involve her helping a zookeeper to steal two macaws for breeding purposes. In "Lying Pig," Eric's wife, Heidi, returns to win him back, and the animals seem to want Jaye to help her. Meanwhile, Mahandra is panicking about having spent the night with Aaron, and Karen is asked to dinner by another doctor at the hospital where Darren works. And in "Cocktail Bunny," Jaye is told by the animals that she needs to "save him from her," so she concludes that Heidi is going to try and kill Eric. Dave start a feature called "Falconry Corner," Ian does an impression of a macaw, and they marvel at the ever-changing internal architecture of The Barrel, Niagra's only bar apparently.

  21. Whilst Comic Reel-lief is on hiatus, Ian Wilson brings you a brand new segment in The Flickchart Forum, in which he and two guests compare lists about films of a certain genre, actor, director, or other viable. To coincide with the 10-year anniversary of Earth-2.net's James Bond podcast, For Your Ears Only, the inaugural segment ranks all 24 official Bond films, with Ian being joined by Andrew "Pandy" Wilson and Tom "Stavros" Hemmings. There's a welcome return to age jokes at the expense of Sir Roger Moore, Pandy learns a new word, Ian says something uneditably tasteless, and Dean Cain gets more mentions than his career probably warrants. The Flickchart Forum will return. [ 2:21:35 || 69.2 MB ]
