Episode 52 of The Electric Shadows Podcast sees Robs Daniel and Wallis pulling a late-night recording session after viewing Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
Fittingly, talking from half-past midnight onwards, the pair are uncharacteristically disciplined as they cover a variety of topics. Despite there being a lot to jaw about in the ep.
First up, the pair pay tribute to Stan Lee, the godfather of modern superheroes and Western comics who sadly passed away this week.
After discussing Suspiria on the previous episode when rounding up the London Film Festival, the Robs discuss Luca Guadagnino’s remake again now that Mr. Wallis has seen it. We recommend listening to both episodes for a full appreciation of what both Robs think of it!
As a main course, they move on to Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. The latest instalment in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World franchise (aka the Harry Potterverse), it continues the adventure of Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander and his battle with the supreme dark wizard Grindelwald, essayed by sometime real-life villain Johnny Depp.
The pair were lukewarm about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Will they warm to the next chapter anymore…?
