Ben Challoner (Third Window Films Podcast) and Joe (The Wire Stripped, Shitegeist podcast) join Flixwatcher remotely for the last episode of 2021 to review Ben’s choice Tokyo Godfathers. Tokyo Godfathers is a 2003 Japanese animation tragicomedy written and directed by Satoshi Kon. Three homeless people Gin - a middle-aged alcoholic, Hana - a transgender woman and Miyuki - teenage runaway discover an abandoned baby on Christmas Eve and end up on a wild adventure when they try to reunite baby and mother. Son himself calls Tokyo Godfathers “a twisted sentimental story” despite the Christmas setting and Three Wise Men elements that is where the warming festive spirit ends as the story progresses there is murder, beatings, suicide and the reality of being homeless. This might sound depressing but there is also humour and hope.   [supsystic-tables id=248] Recommendations for Tokyo Godfathers were very high - even from Helen! Slightly lower repeat viewing but higher engagement - unless you find subtitled animation sleepy - gives an overall rating of 4.20. Merry Christmas from Kobi and Helen, see you in 2022!

Katie Smith-Wong (Movie Marker, Film Stories, New Scientist) and Kelechi Ehenulo (Confessions From A Geek Mind, Film Stories, VultureHound Magazine) join Flixwatcher remotely to review Katie’s choice The Power of the Dog. The Power of the Dog is a 2021 release from acclaimed director Jane Campion based on Thomas Savage's 1967 novel. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Phil an alpha male cowboy/repressed homosexual, Jesse Plemons as his brother George, Kirsten Dunst as Rose, George’s new wife and Kodi Smit-McPhee as her effeminate and quiet son Peter. Phil’s perfect set up is throw into disarray when his brother George marries widower Rose who moves into their family home with her son Peter and threatens tightly controlled world. He retaliates by bullying and intimating Rose and starts an unpredictable relationship with Peter. The Power of the Dog was a highlight at London Film Festival 2021 and its arrival on Netflix comes with high expectations. Despite the Western setting The Power of the Dog is more a film about gender identity and psychological power with a third act reveal that comes out of nowhere than cowboys and horses.   [supsystic-tables id=247] Flixwatcher scores for The Power of the Dog for recommendability and engagement were very high but lower scores for small screen viewing gives a very respectable overall rating of 4.16.

Sophie (It’s An S Pod Thing!) and Barbara (Over/underated: a music podcast with Babs and Fran) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Sophie’s choice School of Rock. School of Rock is a 2003 comedy directed by Richard Linklater and starring Jack Black as Dewey Finn, a failing rock musician who pretends to be his best friend Ned filling in as a substitute teacher and consequently uses his pupils to enter a Battle of the Bands competition. It also co-stars Joan Cusack as the uptight Principal ”Roz" Mullins, Sarah Silverman as Ned’s nagging girlfriend and Mike White (who wrote the film) as Ned Schneebly, Dewy’s best friend and the real Mr Schneebly. Not a musical but there is a stage musical adaptation it was the highest-grossing music-themed comedy of all time until 2015. If High Fidelity was Black’s breakout film, School of Rock put him firmly into the mainstream and it is very much his film and still his most known and loved character.   [supsystic-tables id=246] School of Rock scored very highly for recommendability and repeat viewing from Sophie and Babs but slightly lower scores for engagement gives an overall rating of a very respectable 4.08. What do you guys think? Have you seen School of Rock? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Zach Fortais-Gomm and Liz Campbell from Realms of Peril and Glory (actual play podcast) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Liz’s choice Mean Girls. Mean Girls is a 2004 teen comedy written by Tina Fey and directed by Mark (Freaky Friday) Waters. It stars Lindsay Lohan as newcomer Cady, a superb Rachel McAdams as Regina George the rich popular leader of The Plastics, Lacey Chabert as Gretchen Wieners and Amanda Seyfried, in her breakout role as Karen Smith, the sweet but dumb member of The Plastics. Cady arrives at High School having been homeschooled previously in “Africa” and befriends two outsiders Janis and Damien who convince her to befriend Regina and The Plastics to take revenge. Even if you haven’t seen Mean Girls you will have seen the numerous GIFs and memes (93 and counting) it has spawned - ever worn pink on a Wednesday?!? It has quite possibly become the defining teen film in popular culture. Despite some aspects having aged like (according to Zach) milk - the casual racism and sexual relationships - questionable whether underage grooming by male teachers was funny even in 2004 but Mean Girls is top tier teen film.   [supsystic-tables id=245] Recommedability scores for Mean Girls were high - with fives from Liz, Zach and Helen and strong scoring across the remaining categories gives a very high overall rating of 4.28. What do you guys think? Have you seen Mean Girls? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Catrin Lowe and Rich Nelson from Don‘t You Want Me? podcast join Flixwatcher remotely to review Catrin’s choice Dirty Dancing. Dirty Dancing is a 1987 romantic drama written by Eleanor Bergstein and directed by Emile Ardolino and stars Patrick Swayze as dance instructor Johnny Castle and Jennifer Grey as Baby. Set in the summer of 1963, Baby and her family are on vacation at Kellerman’s - an American version of Butlins - in the Catskills. After Baby intervenes to help Johnny’s dance partner Penny with an abortion she steps in to dance with Johnny and goes on a journey of self-discovery. Marketed as a ‘chick flick’ - dancing, pink font, the mega-hit ‘(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life' by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes, peak Patrick Swayze - Dirty Dancing has much more depth and nuances than a lot of people give it credit for. For a mainstream film to include botched abortions as a major plot point in the 1980s was a brave move.   [supsystic-tables id=244] Scores for recommendability for 14 Peaks were high from guests and Flixwatcher. As with documentaries the repeat viewing score was much slower giving a very respectable overall score of 4.10. 14 Peaks: Nothing Is Impossible premieres on Netflix UK on Monday 29 November. What do you guys think? Have you seen Dirty Dancing? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Kate Leaver (Who’s A Good Dog podcast) and award-winning audio producer Arlie Adlington join Flixwatcher remotely to review Kate’s choice Notting Hill. Notting Hill is a 1999 romantic comedy from writer Richard Curtis, starring Hugh Grant as bumbling Englishman Will and Julia Roberts as Hollywood actress Anna Scott who enters his life after a meet-cute involving orange juice. Is Notting Hill the best rom-com? Debatable for Kate and Arlie yes, for Helen definitely not. Views were mixed, trite and overly sentimental and controversial for its ethnic cleansing of an area of London famous for its Caribbean carnival event or is the character of Anna Scott actually really funny and Notting Hill a quirky take on the regular guy dating a celebrity?   [supsystic-tables id=242] The scores were equally as divisive with Kate and Arlie giving straight fives for recommendability and Kobi and Helen much lower. Its two hours plus runtime was also a turnoff and resulted in low repeat viewing score to give Notting Hill an overall rating of 3.89. What do you guys think? Have you seen Notting Hill? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Michael Leder and Jake Cunningham (Ghibliotheque - A Podcast About Studio Ghibli and Ghibliotheque: The Unofficial Guide to the Movies of Studio Ghibli) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Michael’s choice American Graffiti. In a galaxy far, far away in 1973 George Lucas directed American Graffiti. Set in 1962 it tells the story of a group of teenagers on their last night in their hometown (based on Lucas’ own hometown of Modesto) before they go to college. Notable cast members include Richard Dreyfuss as Curt Henderson, Ron Howard as Steve Bolander, Charles Martin Smith as Terry "The Toad" Fields, Cindy Williams as Laurie Henderson and the debut of Harrison Ford as Bob Falfa. American Graffiti couldn’t be more different to what would later be probably the biggest cinema franchise ever, there are no effects, no other worlds, just a group of kids cruising around in Ford Thunderbirds, hanging around at drive-ins, trying to get lucky and unaware of what the arrival of the 1970s and the Vietnam War will bring.   [supsystic-tables id=241] American Graffiti had a mixed response from Flixwatcher and guests, Kobi and Helen were less enamoured than Michael and Jake and the recommedability scores were reflected in this difference of opinion. Strong scores from Michael and Jake across the remaining categories help to give an overall score of 3.45. What do you guys think? Have you seen American Graffiti? What did you think?

Cam the Provocateur and Agent Scott from SpyHards podcast return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Cam’s choice The Untouchables. The Untouchables is the 1987 Brian De Palma’s Prohibition-era gangster film, loosely based on the activities of Al Capone and ‘The Untouchables’ - an enforcement group led by Eliot Ness who helped bring down Capone. It stars Robert De Niro as Al Capone, Kevin Costner as Eliot Ness, Andy García as George Stone, Charles Martin Smith as Oscar Wallace and Sean Connery (in an Oscar-winning role) as Jim Malone. Pretty violent for its day - it opens with a child being blown up and there is the notorious baseball bat scene it also plays fast and loose with the real historical moments from the 1930s. But this is De Palma and The Untouchables makes up for historical inaccuracy with spectacular set pieces, for example, Battleship Potemkin homage of the Odessa Steps sequence. The Untouchables is also notable for Connery’s “Irish” accent, voted by Empire Magazine as the worst accent on film, however, Connery steals every scene he is in and the accent is just about forgivable.   [supsystic-tables id=240] First-time watcher Scott was dubious going in but gave it a full five (a six if he could!) for recommendability - same as Cam, Helen and Kobi giving it full marks for that category. The Untouchables scores highly across all Flixwatcher categories to score an impressive 4.20 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen The Untouchables? What did you think?

Ben and Paul from Have You Scene This? Podcast return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Ben’s choice Oxygène. Oxygène (Oxygen) is. 2021 French science fiction thriller released by Netflix starring Mélanie Laurent and directed by Alexandre (Crawl) Aja. Laurent plays a woman who wakes up in a airtight cryogenic medical unit. She discovers she is trapped and experiencing a medical emergency and has no memory of how she got there or who she is. Assisted by M.I.L.O (Medical Interface Liaison Officer voiced by Mathieu Amalric) she must work out who and where she is before the oxygen runs out. Oxygène is a fairly decent entry in the single person (Locke, Buried, Moon) genre and “significantly better than expected” mostly due to the performance by Laurent who holds her own and commands your attention for its lean one hour and 40 min runtime.   [supsystic-tables id=239] Oxygène was rated solidly on recommendability and engagement from guests and Flixwatcher but less highly on repeat viewing to score a very respectable 3.63 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Oxygene? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Petros Patsilivas (Caged In: Coppola Connections) and Ariane Anantaputri (A Drip Town Lemory Mane: The Podcast) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Petros’ choice 8 Mile. 8 Mile is a 2002 vaguely auto biographical drama starring Eminem as B-Rabbit, a white rapper struggling to launch his rap career with support from Kim Basinger as his trailer trash mom, Brittany Murphy as his love interest and Mekhi Phifer as his pal Future (loosely based on Eminem’s real-life close friend and rapper Proof). Set in 1995, B-Rabbit hates his blue-collar job and wants to be a rapper but freezes on stage and is humilated. To build his confidence his best friend Future pushes him to enter a revenge rap battle where he succeeds. Lacking in a real character arc, 8 Mile is a standard underdog story and that is elevated by a central performance from Eminem.   [supsystic-tables id=238] Eminem picked up the Academy Award for Best Original Song for Lose Yourself - even though it only features briefly in the end credits - the music and rap battles still stand up in 8 Mile (even if a majority of the language is pretty homophobic). Recommendability from guests and Flixwatcher were mixed and scores for repeat viewing were low. Let down by its longer than necessary runtime of one hour and 50 minutes 8 Mile scores 3.45 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen 8 Mile? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Jessica Reagan (Best Pick podcast) and Carrie Morrison (Lights, Carrie, Action podcast) join Flixwatcher remotely to review Jess’s choice Kill Bill Vol 1. Kill Bill Vol 1 is the first part of Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman’s homage to martial arts, samurai, blaxploitation, spaghetti western, grind house films revenge epic. Thurman stars as ‘The Bride’, beaten, shot and left for dead on her wedding day by Bill (David Carradine) and the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad (Lucy Liu, Michael Madsen, Daryl Hannah, and Vivica A. Fox) after she tries to leave and start a new life. Released in 2003, prior to the #MeToo movement and before the stories of the abuse and car crash Thurman experienced during the filming, Kill Bill represents peak Tarantino. With nods to his own back catalogue (Mia Wallace’s ’square’ and Clarence Worley’s sunglasses) as well as the usual suspects (Game of Death’s jumpsuit and motorbike and Lady Snowblood) Kill Bill is a non stop violent and often funny femme fronted revenge epic.   [supsystic-tables id=237] Thurman completely owns the role - it is such a powerful, physical and iconic role and nothing can take that away from her. Kill Bill Vol 1 scores fairly highly for recommendability and as with all Tarantino’s films a high repeat viewing is recommended. It is let down however by a much lower small screen score to give Kill Bill Vol 1 an overall score of 3.96. What do you guys think? Have you seen Kill Bill vol 1? What did you think?

Matt Brothers from (Spocklight: A Star Trek Podcast and Is Paul Dano Ok?) and Daryl Bär (Sudden Double Deep podcast, Is Paul Dano Ok?) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Matt’s choice Stardust. Stardust is a 2007 fantasy action romance directed by Matthew Vaughn and co-written by Vaughn and Jane Goldman, based on the novel by Neil Gaiman.

Neha and Caria from Not Having It All podcast return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Neha’s choice The Half of It. The Half of It is a 2020 Netflix American coming-of-age comedy drama written and directed by Alice Wu. It stars Leah Lewis as Ellie Chu a shy Chinese-American, Daniel Diemer as jock Paul Munsky who gets Ellie to write his love letters to Alexxis Lemire’s Aster Flores. Set in the small town of Squahamish, Ellie lives with her widowed father, the station master at the local station. She reluctantly agrees to write romantic letters on behalf of Paul - a modern Cyrano de Bergerac - and finds herself falling for Aster in the process. The Half of It has a lot of heart, it’s impossible not to fall in love with Ellie, watching her slowly fall in love with Aster and form a genuinely touching friendship with Paul. It also resolutely does not follow the conventional paths of teen comedy dramas, which is refreshing for the teen genre.   [supsystic-tables id=235] The scores for The Half of It was very high for recommendability and engagement, only losing points for repeat viewing to give a very respectable overall score of 3.78 What do you guys think? Have you seen The Half of it? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Paul Costello and Emma Kathryn from The Yearbook Committee podcast return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Paul’s choice Adaptation. Adaptation is the 2002 Charlie Kaufman comedy-drama directed by Spike Jonze and starring Nicolas Cage as Kaufman and his fictional twin brother Donald. It also stars Meryl Streep as real life author Susan Orlean and an Oscar winning Chris Cooper as John Laroche. Adaptation fuses fiction - Donald, the relationship between Orlean and Laroche - with real life - Kaufman’s writers block and The Orchid Thief - the end result is a mind bending mash of genres. Adaptation is equally funny and heartbreaking at the same time and often unexpectedly. Cage delivers a career best and received an Oscar nomination as both the doubting and obsessive Charlie and the happy go lucky and dorky Donald.   [supsystic-tables id=234] However, Adaptation is weird and not for everyone and that is the caveat for recommendability scores. A score lower repeat viewing but higher for engagement gives Adaptation and overall score of 3.97. What do you guys think? Have you seen Adaptation? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Simon Williams (You’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat film quiz) and David Trumble (artist/cartoonist/illustrator) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Simon’s choice Demolition Man. Demolition Man is 1993 sci-fi action comedy film starring Sylvester Stallone as John Spartan (The Demolition Man), Wesley Snipes as Simon Phoenix and Sandra Bullock as Lieutenant Lenina Huxley. In the year 2032, Spartan and Phoenix are cryogenically frozen after the events in 1996 where hostages were killed and in this future crime has been eradicated in the newly formed San Angeles (a merger of Los Angeles, San Diego, and Santa Barbara). After Phoenix is thawed during a parole hearing and escapes, Spartan is thawed to chase him down and in doing so leaves a trail of demolition. Primarily an action film, Demolition Man is also very funny and quite ridiculous, the myth of the purpose of the three seashells lives on today and holds up as a satire still today.   [supsystic-tables id=233] Demolition Man was a popular rewatch for Flixwatcher and guests and it scored highly on recommendability but less high on engagement to score a very respectable 4.05 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Demolition Man? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Akin Aworan (The Swinging Palm Tree Podcast) and Ashanti Omkar (film critic and journalist) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Akin’s choice Da 5 Bloods. Da 5 Bloods is the Netflix 2020 Spike Lee joint. Paul (Delroy Lindo - unbelievably snubbed by the Academy), Otis (Clarke Peters), Eddie (Norm Lewis), Melvin (Isiah Whitlock Jr.) and their squad leader Norman (Chadwick Boseman in one of his final roles) are the “Bloods”. A close knit squad of US Army black soldiers during the Vietnam war who after securing the site of a C.I.A plane and it’s cargo of gold, decide to bury it for themselves and in the process Norman is killed by gunfire. Present day a landslide has made the buried treasure reachable and the remaining Bloods plus David’s son Paul head back into the jungle to Repatriate the body of Norman and retrieve their gold. Da 5 Bloods is a mixed bag, the ensemble cast is incredible - Delroy was robbed - but no effect was made to de age the actors for the flashbacks, the contribution by black US soldiers in the Vietnam war is finally recognised but there are scenes that wouldn’t be out of place in Tropic Thunder than take it from satire to farce. With a run time of over two hours and 30 minutes it’s also longer than it needs to be.   [supsystic-tables id=231] Flixwatcher and guests scored Da 5 Bloods quite highly on recommendability, less highly on repeat viewing (mostly due to the excessive runtime) and engagement (also due to the excessive runtime) to give an overall score of 3.56. What do you guys think? Have you seen Da 5 Bloods? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Barbara (Over/underated: a music podcast with Babs and Fran) and Sophie (It’s An S Pod Thing!) join Flixwatcher remotely to review Babs choice Superbad. Superbad is a 2007 coming of age comedy starring Jonah Hill, Michael Cera and Christopher Mintz-Plasse as school friends Seth, Evan and Fogel (McLovin), directed by Greg Mottola and produced by Judd Apatow. Determined to lose their virginity before going to college Seth and Evan get invited to Jules party and promise to buy the booze with Fogel’s fake McLovin ID. Of course nothing goes to plan and McLovin is kidnapped by two police officers (Bill Haded and Seth Rogen) while Seth and Evan end up at a bizarre house party in a quest to secure the booze that will impress the girls enough for them to sleep together. It’s difficult to view Superbad’s main narrative of getting girls drunk enough to sleep with Seth and Evan and the endless stream of homophobic jokes as being harmless and of it’s time - it’s questionable how funny it was is 2007. That said Jonah Hill is still brilliant and there are some painfully accurate moments of teenage male friendship to just about redeem it.   [supsystic-tables id=230] In light of being viewed in 2020 scores for Superbad from Flixwatcher and guests were pretty even and everyone was in agreement - averaging a three for recommendability to score 3.25 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Superbad? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Liz Campbell and Zach Fortais-Gomm from Realms of Peril and Glory (actual play podcast launching 18 August) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Zach’s choice Shrek 2.

Shrek 2 sees the return of Mike Myers Shrek, his newlywed Fiona (Cameron Diaz), Donkey (Eddie Murphy) plus new additions of Puss in Boots (Antonia Banderas) and Fairy Godmother (Jennifer Saunders).

Shrek, Fiona and Donkey head to the kingdom of Far Far Away to attend a ball thrown by Fiona’s parents to celebrate their wedding. Shocked to see their daughter and son-in-law as ogres they predictably end up all falling out. Elsewhere the Fairy Godmother is displeased her son Prince Charming did not marry Fiona as agreed by her father and sets out a plan for revenge.

Shrek, like its predecessor, parodies other films based on fairy tales, features references to American popular culture and features an endless soundtrack of popular songs and cover versions.

 

[supsystic-tables id=229]

Feelings for Shrek ranged from very high - Zach and Liz - to less engaged - Helen. Flixwatcher and guests were in agreement though on engagement though and Shrek 2 scores 3.40 overall.

Jake Cunningham and Michael Leder (Ghibliotheque - A Podcast About Studio Ghibli and Ghibliotheque: The Unofficial Guide to the Movies of Studio Ghibli) join Flixwatcher remotely to review Jake’s choice Deep Impact.

Deep Impact is a 1997 science-fiction disaster movie starring Robert Duvall, Téa Leoni, Elijah Wood and Morgan Freeman. Teenage amateur astronomer Leo Beiderman (Wood) spots an unidentified light in the sky and sends it to Dr. Marcus Wolf who recognises it as a comet on a direct path to earth. On his way to sound the alarm his car crashes. One year later, journalist Jenny Lerner (Leoni) accidentally uncovers ELE (Extinction Level Event) not Ellie as she first thinks. Tom Beck (Freeman), the President of the United States announces the news to the world that the comet is on course to impact the Earth in roughly one year and could cause humanity's extinction.

[supsystic-tables id=228]

Is Deep Impact the last greatest blockbuster of the 20th century? Cruelly barged out of the Box Office by the louder, brasher Armageddon, Deep Impact has possibly aged much better and hits more on an emotional level. It scores highly across recommendability, loses some points on the small screen to score an exact 4 overall.

Tremors is the 1990s (not 80s!) monster horror comedy starring Kevin Bacon as Valentine and Fred Ward as Earl, two handymen working in Perfection, Nevada. Fed up with dead end jobs decide to leave but on their way out of town discover a local resident Edgar, dead at the top of electric pylon - apparently scared to dead. They later discover the remains local Shepherd Fred and find themselves joining forces with the remaining residents in a battle against giant deadly land worms.   [supsystic-tables id=227] Tremors excels in not taking itself too serious and the general census is the level of gross and gore falls on the right side of good bad, not bad. This was a first time watch for Scott and he was not disappointed - giving it a straight five for recommendability. Scores for Tremors were high across all Flixwatcher categories to score 3.88 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Tremors? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

GLProUK’s Tony Gordon (How To Write A Tune, Bones Knows) and Jay Ludgrove (The Jaily Show) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Tony’s choice Fury. Fury is a 2014 war drama written and directed by David Ayer it stars Brad Pitt as Don "War Daddy" Collier, Shia LaBoeuf as Boyd "Bible" Swan, Logan Lerman as Norman "Machine" Ellison, Michael Peña as Trini "Gordo" Garcia and Jon Bernthal as Grady "Coon-Ass" Travis. Set in 1945, the Western Allied invasion of Germany meets fanatical Schutzstaffel resistance - War Daddy and his crew are leading the defence in their tank, affectionately named ‘Fury’. While the storyline is fictional, Fury and War Daddy are authentic - American tank commander Staff Sergeant Lafayette G. "War Daddy" Pool’s experience influenced Pitt’s War Daddy and was filmed in the UK due to the availability of functional Sherman tanks to be borrowed. Heavy on machismo and violence Fury doesn’t shy away from the realities of war and the Second World War specifically (dead horses being eaten).   [supsystic-tables id=226] Fury opens with Brad Pitt stabbing a German in the eye - if that is your thing then you’ll probably enjoy Fury - if it’s not then maybe give this one a miss. The scores for Fury reflect this and it scores a very respectable 3.98 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Fury? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Will Collins (screenwriter for Wolfwalkers) and Kevin Lehane (screenwriter for Grabbers) from The Best Bits podcast return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Will’s choice No Country for Old Men. No Country for Old Men is the multi award-winning (Best Picture, Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay at the Oscars) 2007 neo-Western crime thriller from Joel and Ethan Coen. Based on the novel of the same name by Cormac McCarthy it stars Tommy Lee Jones as a local sheriff Ed Tom Bell, Josh Brolin as Llewelyn Moss - a Vietnam vet who stumbles across a large amount of money from a drug deal on bad and a terrifying Javier Bardem as Anton Chigurh - a psychopath hitman hired to track down the missing drug deal money.   [supsystic-tables id=225] No Country for Old Men is violent, detached, bleak but also absurdly funny in places and widely considered the Coen’s greatest achievement in cinema. Less easy to recommend to people than say Fargo, Flixwatcher and guests score No Country for Old Man highly on recommendability with (caveats) but low on the small score to give an overall score of 3.96.

Paul and Ben from Have You Scene This? Podcast join Flixwatcher remotely to review Paul’s choice Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Close Encounters of the Third Kind - The Directors Cut is the 1977 Steven Spielberg sci fi classic starring Richard Dreyfus as Roy Neary, the everyman who after a close encounter with an alien spaceship becomes obsessed with the Devils Tower, has a breakdown that cause his wife to to leave him and sets out on a quest to join the aliens. For a film about aliens, actual aliens are mainly absent for the majority of the film and the main focus is on Neary and the French scientist Claude Lacombe,played by French New Wave auteur François Truffaut, as he chases mysterious encounters across the world. Close Encounters features many key Spielberg themes, Light as mystery, ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances, John Williams theme, fractured family, absent fathers and some classic child peril. Despite its record breaking box office returns on its release and critical acclaim it hasn’t ingrained itself in cinematic history in the same way say Jaws, E.T or Jurassic Park have.   [supsystic-tables id=224] This is reflected on the Flixwatcher scores, even with some top marks from Paul and a decent recommendability, Close Encounters of the Third Kind only scores 3.23 overall What do you guys think?

Caris and Neha from Not Having It All podcast join Flixwatcher remotely to review Caris’ choice Wild Child. Wild Child is a 2008 teen comedy romance film starring Emma Roberts as the Wild Child Poppy, a spoilt LA brat who is sent to an English boarding school to straighten her out and teach her valuable life lessons. Natasha Richardson also makes her last film appearance as the headmistress Mrs Kingsley and Alex Pettyfer plays the love interest. Wild Child is a mix of a typical fish out of water film, Poppy struggles with British food, locations and finds an enemy within seconds of arriving and a story of friendship with bonding over secondhand clothes shopping. Not only is Wild Child a crime against the chip butty it neither works as a comedy or a romance particularly well. There are some surprising plot turns - involving a completely unexpected act of arson.   [supsystic-tables id=223] Despite Caris’ enthusiasm for Wild Child, Flixwatcher and Neha were unconvinced and scores were low across all the categories, apart from small screen score to give an overall score of 2.40. What do you guys think? Have you seen Wild Child? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!
