PODCAST: London Film Festival 2020 Preview [Movie RobCast]

In episode 101, Robs Wallis & Daniel take a look at the films getting them fired up for the 64th London Film Festival.

REVIEW: Say Your Prayers

British indie comedy Say Your Prayers locates itself comfortably in the tradition of inept Brits making a mess of rural idylls – in this case, violently.

The idyll here is the rugged landscape of West Yorkshire. The blokes in question are Tim (Harry Melling), permanently ensconced in a Tibetan earflap, and Vic (Tom Brooke), hatchet-faced and angry.…

REVIEW: The Devil All The Time & Enola Holmes [Netflix]

The Devil All The Time and Enola Holmes are perfect examples of high-quality, immediately disposable Netflix Originals.

Both have promising “indie” directors (Antonio Campos’ last feature was 2016’s Rebecca; Harry Bradbeer broke out directing Fleabag), at least a couple of stars (Devil’s ensemble includes the current Spider-Man and future Batman; Enola Holmes lead is Stranger Things’ Eleven with Superman himself in support as older brother Sherlock), and maybe some literary pedigree (both are based on best-selling novels.)…

REVIEW: Host

They say that necessity is the mother of invention, but it’s some relation to the tried-and-tested, too.

With most of the global population on lockdown for some portion of the last six months, we’ve all got used to seeing our friends virtually.…

REVIEW: An American Pickle

From the guy who brought you that movie about organised religion via the medium of foul-mouthed groceries comes an understated, oddly dignified tale of what it means to be a Jewish immigrant in America. More specifically, an early-20th Century Jewish immigrant preserved in brine for 100 years before being released on modern-day Brooklyn.…
