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. It also boasts an ensemble cast featuring Claire Danes, Charlie Cox, Sienna Miller, Ricky Gervais, Jason Flemyng, Rupert Everett, Peter O'Toole, Michelle Pfeiffer, Henry Cavill, Mark Strong and Robert De Niro, with narration by Ian McKellen. A star (Danes) falls from the sky and becomes the quest for Tristan (Cox) to bring back for his beloved Victoria (Miller) so he can marry her and three ancient witches - led by Lamia (Pfeiffer) who need to eat the heart of the star to regain their powers and youth.   [supsystic-tables id=236] Stardust scored highly from Matt, Daryl and Kobi for recommendability but less highly from Helen.

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!
