It’s Episode 86! Imriel Morgan (Wanna Be Podcast and Shout Out Network) and Sofie Hagen (Made of Human and Secret Dinosaur Cult) join us for Imriel’s choice, the 2018 Netflix film To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. Based on the novel of the same name by Jenny Han, directed by Susan Johnson and starring Lana Condor and Noah Centineo. While there is nothing particular new or surprising about the plot of To All The Boys, what is surprising and refreshing is the characters and loveliness flowing through the whole film. The lead, Lara, is played by Vietnamese born actress Lana Condor, which considering most female leads in rom coms are white Americans is a pretty big deal. What makes it even more of a bid deal is they don’t draw attention to it or make a plot point, boom! Zipping along at 99 minutes the film is a breeze and the chemistry between the two leads is always believable. Scores [supsystic-tables id='89']There was a lot of love for To All The Boys from everyone, a LOT of love, nearly so much love that it toppled newly crowned Flixwatcher champion When Harry Met Sally off the top. Nearly but not quite, but scoring a very respectable 4.78. They’ve just announced a sequel so watch this now! What do you guys think? Have you seen To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

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

It’s Episode 85! JoJCast’s Jay and Jo join us to review probably the greatest romantic comedy ever made, When Harry Met Sally. Can men and women ever truly just be friends? Is the question When Harry Met Sally asks throughout its weaving in and out of Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan) lives though the years. Directed by Rob Reiner and written by Nora Ephron is responsible in part for every other romantic comedy to follow since. The reason why? It’s brilliant. It’s an hour and a half of dazzling brilliance. Not a second is wasted, it’s funny and cute, Crystal and Ryan get equally great lines, Carrie Fisher and it’s set in New York. Scores [supsystic-tables id='88']Very few romcoms are When Harry Met Sally, and while we expected it might score high we didn’t predict it would be the film to topple What We Do In The Shadows from being the highest rated Flixwatcher. Scoring a massive 4.78 we have a new champion. Twitter agreed with us too. Go and celebrate with some Pecan pie. What do you guys think? Have you seen When Harry Met Sally? What did you think?

It’s Episode 84! Returning guests Boyd and Josh from Footballistically Arsenal return for Boyd’s choice the 1995 David Fincher serial killer noir Se7en. Amazingly Josh had NEVER seen Se7en prior to coming on Flixwatcher, he did not know what was in the box. If you also do not know what’s in the box STOP READING AND WATCH THE FILM NOW. Morgan Freeman is the cop on his last case working with the young gun Brad Pitt in his first case in the new department on the trail of a madman/genius working his way through the seven deadly sins in a variety of gruesomely inventive murders. Scores [supsystic-tables id='86']Unsurprisingly Se7en scores highly across all categories (Boyd scores it a perfect 20) and comes out overall 4.57 - a very high score for a very fine film. What do you guys think? Have you seen Se7en? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

It’s Episode 83? The brothers de Semlyen Nick (Empire Magazine) and Phil (Time Out) return for Nick’s choice, the 1985 John Landis film Into the Night.

Starring Jeff Goldblum and Michelle Pfeffier with a cameo appearance from David Bowie and numerous famous and obscure directors.

It’s fair to say this is one of Landis and Goldblums leader know films despite its era and cast, probably because it’s a very strange film.

Surprisingly frequently violent and really, really dark it is also punctuated by moments of comedy and moments that wouldn’t be out of place in a David Lynch film. There isn’t really much point in trying to explain the plot, if you’re a fan of any of its stars or directions involved and haven’t seen it yet it’s definitely worth a watch. If you’re a film buff you can always just watch it and play spot the director!

Kobi isn’t sure what he thinks of it and Helen thinks it’s weird - Into the Night has many similarities with Midnight Run but without the funny, sweet buddy moments and more nudity.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id='85']The Blues Brothers it isn’t, Into the Night scores low across all the categories (except small score) but still manages to scrap a overall score of 2.62, not essential but not too terrible either.

What do you guys think? Have you seen Into the Night? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!
