Daryl and Jeanette from Sudden Double Deep return to Flixwatcher to review Daryl’s choice Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is a 2011 version of the classic John le Carre novel directed by Tomas Alfredson, starring the cream of British (albeit male) actors including Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Stephen Graham, Toby Jones and John Hurt.   In short, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is about finding a mole in M16 during the height of the Cold War in 1973. A lot more happens around that but to try and give a respectable summary wouldn’t do the complex plot justice.

Scores

[supsystic-tables id=121] Some people might be infuriated by it’s purposeful slow pace but if you stick with it you’ll be richly rewarded. It is worth it just to watch Gary Oldman swimming in Hampstead Heath mens ponds with his prescription glasses on - if that hasn’t sold it then nothing will. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy scores pretty high across all categories from everyone and scores a very recommendable 4.21 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy ?

It’s Episode 115! Ciara Baxendale and Andy Goddard from Wooden Overcoats, your number one podcast sitcom for rival funeral directors Bee Movie is about Barry (Jerry Seinfeld, who also wrote it) the bee who doesn’t want to work in a hive so escapes, meets Renée Zellweger (who he may or not be in love with) and launches a court case against humans who are stealing honey. The legend goes that someone watched Bee Movie 357 on Netflix - if you’ve seen Bee Movie you will find this baffling. It’s fair to say Bee Movie is a bizarre film, it starts off fairly harmless with bee puns but quickly descends into a weird comment on communism and humanity. There are no obvious reasons why this film got made.  

Scores

[supsystic-tables id=120] Bee Movie unsurprisingly scores low across all categories and scores 1.81 overall, not the lowest score ever - That Thing You Do can keep it’s wooden spoon for now. What do you guys think? Have you seen Bee Movie? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

It’s Episode 114! Adelle Drover (Roll Credits) and Clarisse Loughrey (Independent and Kermode and Mayo) return to Flixwatcher to review Adelle’s choice the 2004 zombie romcom Shaun of the Dead. Shaun of the Dead is the first in the Cornetto Trilogy of Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg post Spaced feature films. Pegg is Shaun, a directionless Londoner caught up in a zombie apocalypse while trying to get back together with his girlfriend with his best mate Ed (Nick Frost) in tow.   At a run time of 99 minutes Shaun of the Dead manages to fit in numerous nods to all your favourite zombie films, Spaced references, classic lines “you’ve got red on you”, cameos from the who’s who of British comedy, Queen on the soundtrack and a commendable level of gore. A proper cult classic.  

Scores

[supsystic-tables id=119] Watching Shaun of the Dead feels a lot like hanging out with your best mate and is also a friendly welcome to the zombie sub genre. Shaun scores highly across all categories with a lot of love from Clarisse and Helen scoring 4.45 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Shaun of the Dead? What did you think?
