Kong: Skull Island (Electric Shadows podcast)

The Electric Shadows Podcast reaches Episode 20!

In this landmark episode, myself & Rob Daniel talk Kong: Skull Island – but did we go ape for it?
We also go off track into some trademark tangent undergrowth, and find time to tackle Paul Verhoeven’s controversial Elle, Anna Biller’s deeply feminist melodrama The Love Witch, plus Fassbender-Gleeson Traveler drama Trespass Against Us.

Logan (Electric Shadows podcast)

In Episode 19 of The Electric Shadows Podcast, Rob Daniel & myself get all X-cited about Logan, Hugh Jackman’s swansong to the X-Men franchise. And – spoiler alert – this Wolverine can really cut it in a film that boasts amazing action, genuine emotion, and a chilling vision of where Donald Trump’s America is heading.…

Oscars 2017 (Electric Shadows podcast)

Rob Daniel & myself do an early morning post-Oscars review after staying all night to watch the ceremony. The highs, the lows, the biggest gaffe in Oscar history, we chat all about it here. Jimmy Kimmel did a great job, the (possibly staged) Celebrity Zoo was a bizarre misfire, and damn… that ending.

Wellness, Wick, & The Founder (Electric Shadows podcast)

In Episode 18 of The Electric Shadows Podcast, Rob Daniel & myself pay tribute to the Hollywood legend, the sorely missed Bill Paxton.

We also turn a critical eye toward Gore Verbinski’s A Cure for Wellness, lock n’ load with John Wick: Chapter 2 and get stuck into tasty McDonald’s biopic The Founder; boasting a fantastic lead performance from Michael Keaton.…

2017 Movie Kickstart (Electric Shadows podcast)

Mr. Rob Daniel & myself look through films that have kicked off 2017: T2: Trainspotting, Assassin’s Creed, Jackie, Moonlight, Hacksaw Ridge, and Silence. And Rogue One (review pending)! And there’s some La La Land talk.

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. Slightly tired (and punchy), the two embark on a spellbinding odyssey that covers inter-species coupling, the right way to cast spells, Eddie Redmayne’s fictitiously Batesian relationship with his mum and comparing King Kong to Sonny Corleone.

BVS: DoJ – UE & The Neon Demon (Electric Shadows podcast)

Here’s the latest installment of the Electric Shadows podcast, which is hosted by myself and the wonderful Mr. Rob Daniel. 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.
