It’s Episode 64! John and Harry from the Beyond the Box Set podcast join us to review John’s choice Gods Own Country. This 2017 film set in Yorkshire (get it?!) is a modern love story between a young disillusioned, laddish young farm Johnny and Gheorghe, a Romanian migrant hired to help out on the farm during lambing season. Cruelly overshadowed by the success and acclaim of Call Me By Your Name despite the critical acclaim Gods Own Country didn’t have the same reach or audience - this is criminal. Starring the beautiful rolling hills of Yorkshire and wonderful performances from its two stars Josh O’Connor and Alec Secarean Gods Own Country is an earthy, slow burning film about passion, family, things unspoken and intimacy. It’s also a fascinating portrait of modern rural life in England.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id='66']Unsurprisingly Gods Own Country scores highly across the categories (near perfect in recommendability 5,5,5 and Kobi’s 4.5!). Only let down by repeat viewing and that we wish we’d had the chance to see it on the big screen. Overall a very strong 4.15. Highly recommended. What do you guys think?

It has to be Putting on the Ritz, but there is no Gene Wilder version so we have added the Mel Torme Version!

Welcome to Episode 63! We welcome Gemma and Annabel from the Anthill Podcast back to Flixwatcher to review Gemma’s choice the 2009 Neill Blomkamp film District 9. Billed as a Peter Jackson presents District 9 was the breakout film for Sharlto Copley. Filmed and set in Johannesburg it mixes (fake) found footage and documentary styles and is was inspired by the true life events of District Six from the apartheid era. The film, despite providing some genuine comic moments, addresses themes of racism, xenophobia, bureaucracy and refugees and immigrants while moving between sci fi, body horror and action genres. District 9 has aged pretty well and it’s themes are still relevant today and it’s all held together by Copley’s performance and interaction with the ‘prawns’.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id='65']Our guests and Flixwatcher scored District 9 highly across most categories bringing the overall score to 4.1 (despite Kobi’s low score for repeat viewing!). Highly recommended What do you guys think? Have you seen District 9? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

It’s Episode 62! John and Tom from Best Pick Pod join us to review the 1988 action comedy Midnight Run starring Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin.

Midnight Run is essentially Planes, Trains and Automobiles played Beverly Hills Cop style, meaning swearing, guns and exploding helicopters! Not surprising as it’s from Martin (Beverly Hills Cop) Brest and made in 1988.

De Niro and Grodin made a perfect odd couple on the run from the FBI and the mob making their road trip via ever decreasing levels of comfort in transportation. Considering it’s age, seen through 2018 eyes it still holds up pretty well, it’s as cheesy as it was in the day but De Niro is genuinely enjoyable and it’s a lot of fun.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id='64'] Midnight Run scores fairly high across all categories and overall comes in at 4.33. Warmly recommend by Flixwatcher and guests. What do you guys think? Have you seen Midnight Run? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Beth and David from Wooden Overcoats (your premiere comedy drama podcast about rival funeral directors), join Kobi and Helen to review the 1950 Betty Davis classic All About Eve.


Scoring 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, All About Eve is a bona fide Hollywood classic. Nominated for 14 Oscars it won six. It is the only film in Oscar history to receive four best actress nominations though winning non and features an early Marilyn Monroe performance. The story is the classic starlet stealing The limelight from the ageing, but admired star, despite its years it still remains dazzling, hilarious and a masterclass in acting from the whole cast.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id='63'] There was a lot of love - if slightly lukewarm from Kobi - for All About Eve and it scores 4.46 overall (not enough to knock WWDITS off the leaderboard) an extremely high Flixwatcher score indeed.
