It’s Episode 113! Zoe Jeyes (the home of podcasting Kings Place) and Helen O’Hara (Empire Magazine) return to Flixwatcher to discuss Zoe’s choice A Ghost Story. A Ghost Story is a sort of time travelling, supernatural love story of sorts. Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck are a nameless couple about to move house when tragedy strikes in the form of a car crash that kills Affleck. Following Mara’s visit to the hospital, Affleck becomes a ghost with a sheet over him. Unable to move on Affleck becomes trapped in the house they shared long after Mara leaves, terrorises a Spanish family and tries to retrieve a note left in a hole in the wall by Mara. That’s basically it, oh and Mara eats a pie.

[supsystic-tables id=118] A Ghost Story is either your cup of tea or your cup of rancid bog water - you’ll either love it, be massively frustrated or just bored by it. However, it is only an hour and a half so if you’re curious do give it the time. This mixed bag of feelings towards it ends up giving a score of 3.18 overall. the rankings). What do you guys think?

It’s Episode 112! Comedians Alice Fraser (The Bugle & Tea With Alice) and Myq Kaplan (Broccoli and Ice Cream) return to review Alice’s choice Fast & Furious 6. Fast & Furious 6 is the sixth outing in the Fast & Furious franchise. Did you want more plot? Fast & Furious 6 sees the previous films plots of street racing left behind in a screech of tyres, featured returning characters Luke (Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson) Hobbs and Owen (Luke Evans) Shaw and brought back Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and brought much more of an action vibe to the franchise.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id=117] Unlikely to win over haters Fast & Furious 6 has everything you’ve come to expect and enjoy from a Fast and Furious film and if that’s your bag you’ll enjoy this. If it isn’t there are plenty of other films on Netflix you can try. Fast and Furious doesn’t require much brainpower to watch and it scores a pretty respectable 3.8 overall.   What do you guys think? Have you seen Fast & Furious 6? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

It’s Episode 111! Clarisse Loughrey (Independent and Kermode and Mayo) and Adelle Drover (Roll Credits) join Flixwatcher to review Clarisse’s choice Snowpiercer. Snowpiercer is a 2013 dystopian science fiction action film by Korean genius Bong Joon-ho starring Chris (Steve Rogers) Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Song Kang-ho, Octavia Spencer, John Hurt and Ed Harris. Despite being released in America in 2013 its biggest UK release was May 2019 on Netflix. In an attempt to combat global warming (take note planet) climate engineering goes wrong and turns the planet into a barren iced wasteland and the only survivors left are travelling, in order of class (upper at the front having orgies, middle class in the middle and the lower class at the back eating cockroach protein bars and keeping the travel running) on Snowpiercer as it travels at speed to no apparent destination. Following the abduction of two children from the back of the train Evans launches a mission to get to the front of the train to take control and violence and bizarreness ensues, including Octavia Spencer cracking an egg on a child’s face.  

Scores

[supsystic-tables id=116] There was a LOT of love for Snowpiercer, especially Clarisse but there was a record number of reviews tweeted too (thanks everyone!) and rightly so, only losing points on repeat viewing (over two hours is a long repeat viewing) and some for small screen but high all round for recommendability and engagement, scoring 4.11 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Snowpiercer? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

It’s Episode 110! Jeanette and Daryl from Sudden Double Deep join us to review the 2017 documentary Faces Places.

Faces Places follows director Agnès Varda and photographer and muralist JR as they journey through rural France and form an unlikely friendship. On their journey, they meet ordinary people and take their photos which are then printed larger than life and pasted to buildings and other large scale objects.

 

Faces Places in an hour and a half of celebrating the ordinary and making everyday beautiful. It’s also a wonderful entry-level piece for anyone interested in the work and films of Agnès Varda.

[supsystic-tables id=115]

Don’t be put off by being subtitled or that it sways in and out of conceptual art, with a run time of an hour and a half you’ll be left smiling and feeling a little bit better about the world after. There was a lot of love for Faces Places from guests and Flixwatcher and it scores 4.14 overall.

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