  1. I know many people are of the same opinion and if that's what floats your boat then fair enough.
  2. Incredibly sad to see that he has passed. It's a testament to his portrayal of Avon that when Gareth Thomas decided to leave the show they knew that they could bump Avon up to the leader and no of would have a problem with it. A man of great presence and, by all accounts, a lovely person to work with. He'll be missed.
  3. Thank you Mr Wilson, I'll get it finished this weekend, promise.
  4. I always forget about it until I watch the motion picture again.
  5. Pound of Flesh! It's like Taken except instead of Liam Neeson it's Jean-Claude Van Damme and instead of Liam Neeson's daughter it's one of Jean-Claude Van Damme's kidneys.
  6. Definitely Risky Business for a young Cruise role. Collateral for a perfomance that is very un-Cruise (Michael Mann wanted him to be more anonymous and blend in) and Eyes Wide Shut for an example Cruise working with Nicole Kidman and for what I think would be an interesting discussion.
  7. Police Story - Early film with great fight choreography Rush Hour - Who doesn't love a buddy cop film The Foreigner - Jackie Chan Vs Pierce Brosnan
  8. I'm looking forward to a future spin-off show featuring Statistician Ian and Vincent Price.
  9. In which case we'll avoid any Ryan Murphy for the near future then.
  10. Definitely John Wick (Don't get on his Wick!) I don't think you can't do a Bill and Ted film as they are so very different from the parts he'd play in later life but if you wanted an alternative early Reeves I'd suggest a 1986 film called River's Edge. For a third I'd say either Point Break which was his coming out party as an action film lead or maybe My Own Private Idaho where he plays opposite River Phoenix.
  11. Okay, here are the rest. Best Feedback: The Orgs on Kate Winslet where the decide to watch an entirely different film, suggest she should have been in the Chuckle Brothers and argue about sci-fi. Best Jingle: The Beaver Most Anticipated Subject: Peter Cushing
  12. Those jokes were comedy gold Pandy. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
  13. Peter Cushing Jason Statham Sidney Poitier Michelle Yeoh Salma Hayek Pam Grier
  14. Favourite Actor Covered: Burt Reynolds Braveheart for favourite review due to Ian's furious takedown of the film's historical blunders. It was hilarious and informative. Worst Movie Covered: The Cat in the Hat. Need to listen back to some for the other categories
  15. Dragnet, I love that film and it's a pitch perfect comedy performance from Ackroyd. Spies Like Us. Ackroyd teamed up with Chevvy Chase where he plays the straighter of the two roles. Grosse Point Blank. Ackroyd in a villain role where he's still funny but the humour is much much darker.
  16. Finally, a legitimate reason to discuss Batman 66!
  17. Every mention of Space Lincoln is gold. I now want him to have his own show.
  18. Edgar Wright being pulled off Ant-Man is oft cited as an example of Marvel being controlling but directors and studios part company all the time for various reasons. Wright isn't a big studio filmmaker by choice and that's what Marvel became. I can see why they'd not click. The only reason it was news worthy is because Wright is a geek darling. Thor: The Dark World changed directors too and no one mentions that.
  19. Then can we call on you to be a Bradley Walsh expert?
  20. I must admit to being a little disappointed. How many times did someone say "The Phantom" and not once was it followed by the words "Slam Evil"? For shame... ...for shame.
  21. I'd like to nominate Ian's 15 point historically accurate, verbal punishment beating of Braveheart as a moment of the year.
  22. As Mr Wilson has his plate full moving house I thought I would add the poll for the next episode so apologies if I have messed it up somehow. Here is the choice of episodes along with their IMDB synopsis. The Old, the New, and the Deadly Once again, Danny's life is in grave danger as a newspaper photograph showing him carrying a case with a statuette of a German eagle will attract the attention of an ex-Nazi fanatical Count and his assassins. (Guest star Patrick Troughton) Angie... Angie Danny's in for a trip down memory lane when he bumps into a long-lost childhood buddy from the Bronx slums, but shortly, as bullets start flying all over the sun-kissed French Riviera, the masks will fall off. Chain of Events Things turn volatile when unexpectedly, Danny gets himself handcuffed to a much-wanted attaché case, sparking a relentless manhunt from both MI6 and Iron Curtain agents who need to recover the case at all costs. (Guest Stars Peter Vaughan and George Baker) That's Me Over There It's high time the masks fell off and a crooked colossal entrepreneur finally got what he deserved. This is definitely a job suited to Lord Brett Sinclair, or better yet, a job suited to Danny impersonating Brett. (featuring a character called Ann Summers) The Long Goodbye Brett and Danny accidentally discover a plane wreckage, and with it, a low-cost, high-grade synthetic fuel formula, which attracts a parade of oil tycoons and "considerate" daughters, all claiming the formula. The Man in the Middle Someone inside the British Intelligence has turned traitor, but when Brett and Danny's efforts to smoke out the traitor are intercepted, Brett's faint-hearted cousin must come to his rescue. (Guest star Terry Thomas) Element of Risk A concealed microfilm in a dark grey attaché case dropped inconspicuously in Danny's luggage trolley, will trigger a game of masquerade as unlucky Danny will need to play along and act as an undisputed American criminal mastermind. A Home of One's Own A derelict country cottage is Danny's latest investment, but apart from its great potential, the place comes with a reputation and an unexpected secret.
  23. Dead Calm because it's a tense film and also has a breakout role for Billy 'SLAM EVIL' Zane. I'd add my voice to To Die For as it was very much a career surge for her and a great little film with and edge of black humor.
