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? Please let us know in the comments below!
