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?
