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.

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.

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

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!
