Nigel and Páraic sit down for a WhatsApp video call to talk films they've been "enjoying" Ireland's second full lockdown. Includes Cork FIlm Festival favourite WOLFWALKERS, Ben Wheatley's REBECCA, the Emily Mortimer-starring RELIC, Pixar's ONWARD, Robert Zemeckis' THE WITCHES, British film LYNN + LUCY and many more.... Plus Páraic goes through his Sky Movies offer, and Nigel reveals the best time to watch horror films - 5.30am.
It’s taken us 6 weeks but we’ve finally gotten back to the cinema and so this episode is mostly a big giant discussion on Tenet and whether it was worth the big wait. And after all that we’ll be digging through some of the new releases that have shown up on Netflix in the last few weeks and discussing 'The Batman'. And Nigel shills for 'Palm Springs' which isn't coming to a screen near you...
Nigel makes it to The Stella cinema in Rathmines for some socially distant cinema, Páraic virtually attends the Galway Film Fleadh for the Philip Doherty's Cavan-set 'Redemption of a Rogue', we set ourselves the challenge to tackle David Lynch's 1990 'Wild at Heart'... and a selection of what's been floating our boat on Disney+, Netflix and Amazon Prime.
We believe we can fly right back to 1996 to take on the Michael Jordan, Bugs Bunny opus 'Space Jam', Nigel review new on-demand releases 'Never Rarely Sometimes Always' and 'The Assistant', and Páraic takes on 'Extraction' and 'The Wrong Missy'. And we remember Lynn Shelton and Fred Willard.
4 weeks into shut cinemas, we're remote-recording to dip into a film that is considered a modern classic - 2000's 'American Psycho' from director Mary Harron and starring Christian Bale. We also go through some of the other random stuff we've been watching from Disney+, Netflix and Amazon Prime.
We try to make sense of what is going on in the world around the coronavirus pandemic, and how this affects cinema-going, on-demand viewing at home and the entire cinema industry. Amidst this we also review 'The Invisible Man', 'Portrait of a Lady on Fire' and 'Colour out of Space' and remember Max von Sydow.
Eithne Shortall joins Nigel and Páraic for the ultimate Academy Awards 2020 preview as they unveil their picks, discuss the big omissions and predict who'll be walking home with a gold statuette (Joaquin, Renée, Laura and Brad probably!)...
