We’re back after a great start to the summer movie season in May. June gives us some high profile comedies, as well as arguably the most anticipated film of the summer; Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
The summer is apparently here and now that it’s finally started to warm up, what does everyone do? They run to their local cinema to watch some of the biggest films of the year that get released. As well as the blockbusters, I’m going to pick one smaller film for each month and try to […]
Original Release: 1 November 2007 Watched: 27 April 2009 The Darjeeling Limited was released in November 2007 and co-written and directed by Wes Anderson. The film tells the story of three estranged brothers Francis, Peter and Jack Whitman (played by Owen Wilson, Adrian Brody and Jason Schwartzman) who go on a spiritual journey through India […]
Boy, I never realized how much shit is released on a weekly basis on DVD and Blu-ray until I started making this list. This week’s releases have a few surprises that I might have to go pick up. All I know for sure is that Pinocchio is a ‘for sure’ purchase for me…have to keep […]
Just like remembering that time a drunken Uncle Jack stumbling into your room at 2AM asking you to pet his snake, Hollywood is now assaulting my childhood memories. Now we’ve already been subjected to this in a different way with our old TV shows jumping to the big screen. With the upcoming releases of GI […]
Hey there you lovely listeners you! For your aural enjoyment this week is episode 13 of the Red-Light Roundtable. We had a special guest panelist on our show this week to give a bit of a British “flavour” to the show.
There are movies, and then there are MOVIES! Today I hope to share with you my shining examples of the MOVIES that make you glad that you have a dick. You know, the truly testosterone pumped films that blur the line between awesome and homo-erotic. We’ve all seen them hundreds of times but there is […]
So you say that there’s no good places left in the world after the apocalypse? Well good sir/madam, you’d be completely wrong. You just haven’t been looking hard enough! If you really want to see the sites while travelling, your next stop should be the one shining, if not glowing bastion in this whole dystopian […]
Film came out: 31st October 2008 How late: 12 days (Gibbo), 5 days (Gandysampras) I can’t say I’m a James Bond fan but Casino Royale was a pretty awesome film. It had an easy to follow story, some good action sequences and was an overall entertaining film. So the expectations were high when it was […]
Original release date: 26 June 2008 (UK) Lateness: 4 months I had much higher hopes for this movie than I did for the first in the series. This one I knew included large scale battles, and much more “mature” themes thanks to reading the books umpteen times growing up. Then again I knew the film […]
Original release date: 23rd October 1998 Lateness: 10 years (Wow, was not expecting it to be this old) Orgazmo comes from the brains of Trey Parker and Matt Stone, co-creators of South Park. It’s a movie filled with crass humour, sexual innuendo, blasphemy and by no means is it a thinking man’s film, it is […]
I fell in love with Futurama from the very first time I saw the pilot and have been hooked ever since. Any fan of the series will be glad to know that Bender’s Game keeps up the trend of geeky jokes, hilarious parody and great story that is the staple of the Futurama universe. Bender’s […]
Release Date: 16 November 2006 (UK) Lateness: Almost 2 years With the new bond movie just around the corner I decided to gather some friends and sit down for the first in the reboot of the franchise. This may have been a mistake, after talking to a few mates and seeing if they would want […]
Ok, we recorded this about a whole damn month ago and I’ve been lazily sitting on it, constantly procrastinating when it would be edited and put up. Well, I finally for off my ass and did something about it. I present to you, Red-Light Roundtable Episode 4: Zombies. In this chapter of RLR it’s me, […]
Like it or not, zombies are here to stay. Whether it be the human fascination with our own mortality or the fear that humanity is fleeting and temporary, zombies have infiltrated the world’s subconscious. Regardless of the medium, the zombie horde has managed to shamble (or in some cases run full bore) into our morbid […]
