Six months in the making, Episode 25 of The Electric Shadows Podcast is a special looking at Oliver Stone’s 1991 classic, JFK.

PODCAST: POTC 5 Vs. The Mummy Vs. Wonder Woman Vs. Transformers 5 [Electric Shadows]

A cinematic showdown for the ages – or at least until the next batch of blockbusters arrives in cinemas.

Fantastic Beasts… (Electric Shadows podcast)

Robs Daniel & Wallis do a late night review of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, having just watched the movie.

There’s a link to his site, the titular Electric Shadows, in the toolbar to the right. This week we’re discussing the unsurprising disappointment that was Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition – the original has, in our mutual loathing of it, probably been our most discussed film this year – and our mutual, if critical, admiration for Nicholas Winding Refn’s latest, flawed masterpiece The Neon Demon.
