Matt and Chris from the Movie Bunker Podcast join Flixwatcher to review Matt’s choice Jaws!   If you’ve never heard of Jaws who are you even?!? Jaws is the 1975 blockbuster from Steven Spielberg starring Bruce the Shark. Essentially, Jaws is a monster in the house film set in the open sea and utterly terrifying. What else is there to say? A great white shark attacks beachgoers and sea swimmers at Amity Island. Police Chief Brody (Roy Scheider) tries to close the beaches but when he is overruled by the Mayor he sets out to sea with oceanographer Matt (Richard Dreyfuss) Hooper and gnarly, alcoholic professional shark hunter Quint (Robert Shaw) to kill the shark. There are so many stories and trivia about Jaws that is definitely worth reading and getting into - even if you’ve seen Jaws hundreds of times it will add to your viewing pleasure. Scores

[supsystic-tables id=169] Jaws scores very highly on the recommendedability but with a runtime of over two hours it scores less well on repeat viewing and small screen. Jaws scores overall 3.93.

Tom Crowley (Wooden Overcoats and Crowley Time) and Felix Trench (Wooden Overcoats and Quid Pro Euro) return to Flixwatcher to review Tom’s choice Christine.

  Christine is a 1983 supernatural horror film directed by John Carpenter based on the Stephen King novel of the same name. A study of toxic masculinity of 1970s men seen through their love of their cars. The car in this film happens to be a living evil car - and the car is a woman. In the hands of Carpenter (a trashy companion to Stanley Kubrick) Christine mixes high school tropes with amazing special effects and car animatronics with a killer (sorry) soundtrack. The self-repair scene in particular is worth the one hour 50 minutes run time alone.   Scores

[supsystic-tables id=168] For a horror fan, you get two car-based deaths in the opening scenes - even if the rest of the film is quite low on gore and shocks. With a run time of nearly two hours, Christine could either be pacier or have more character development. Christine scores generally well across most of the categories apart from repeat viewing to score 3.82 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Christine? What did you think?

Honey Ross (The Body Protest) and Becky Young (Anti Diet Riot Club) return to Flixwatcher to review Honey’s choice The Two Popes.

  The Two Popes is a 2019 biographical drama starring Anthony Hopkins as Pope Benedict XVI and Jonathan Pryce as Pope Francis. It follows the period after 2005 and the Vatican scandals - with Argentinean football. The Two Popes is the ultimate film for the pope fan but offers very much little else. Hopkins and Pryce do a good job with their impersonations and you can genuinely imagine them hanging out together. Where this semi-biographical and part fictionalisation meet is when the film fails to tackle the controversies and child abuse scandals that have plagued the news as you’d expect. Worse it ignores the issue rather than beginning to offer an apology. Scores

[supsystic-tables id=167] The Two Popes unsurprisingly scores quite low score apart from the small screen score - it feels quite TV like in its approach but lacks in a real story. The Two Popes scores overall 3.08 - bumped up by its high small screen score. What do you guys think? Have you seen The Two Popes? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Gareth (The Raid, Gangs of London) Evans and Sope (Gangs of London) Dirisu join Flixwatcher to review Gareth’s choice Enter the Dragon.

Enter the Dragon is the 1973 Bruce Lee martial film directed by Robert Clouse. Famous for many things but mainly for being the last film Lee completed before his untimely death at the age of 32. Even if you’ve never seen Enter the Dragon you seen the poster and the iconic image of Lee shirtless with the bloody claw marks across his body. You’ll probably also know the final battle in the room mirrors too, most recently John Wick 2 played homage to the scene. In Enter of the Dragon Lee plays erm Lee, who is hired James Bond style to attend a high profile martial arts competition being held on the private island belonging to suspected crime lord Han. He is also given the opportunity for revenge when he finds out Han’s bodyguard was responsible for the death of his sister. Sadly Enter the Dragon also suffers from very outdated James Bond 70s writing and inappropriate references. That said, Lee is the star and his physical presence and skills just about make up for the weaknesses in plot/characters. I’m 2004 it was deemed culturally significant and rightfully so. Scores

[supsystic-tables id=166] Adored by martial arts fans Enter the Dragon scores highly across recommendability and extremely highly from Kobi and guests to score a very respectable 4.25 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Enter the Dragon? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!
