You know when a friend of yours has somehow not seen a film? You know, a film that they should have seen because it’s almost impossible to have not seen it. One of my friends was like that. She hadn’t seen Wayne’s World. Naturally I fixed that. Also, by some lovely piece of synergy, it resulted in the perfect companion piece to go with my last review. The film was Wayne’s World. That’s the film I’m on about. How does someone live, like, a bunch of years and never see Wayne’s World? Anyway, click the link below.

Back in September last year I finally got around to reviewing Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. It was one of those films on my to do list. Not that I have an actual list of films I’m meant to be reviewing… well… apart from the one linked at the top that I don’t think I’ve updated for a year. I should do that. Anyway, Excellent Adventure’s sequel, Bogus Journey, was also a film that I’ve been meaning to cover. And today is that day! Which I’d guess you’ve figured out already. Anyway, let’s get on with this.
So this film had some controversy surrounding it. By which I mean someone who may or may not be tied to North Korea didn’t like the look of the film and so they hacked Sony and proceeded to distribute emails and films galore. Oddly, Sony actually cancelled the release of the film, and then everyone pointed out how they probably shouldn’t and the film got released as planned along with a bonus online distribution model. If I was a cynic I’d say it was probably all one elaborate marketing scam. I mean, it would fit in with the film’s constant themes of deception… might not be though.

Hello there. It’s that time of the month where I post the latest Critapocalypse Podcast. Well, that one of 2 times in a month because the podcast is fortnightly. Anyway, this week we review all sorts of stuff like American Sniper, Crash (the good one) and the WWE network. There’s other stuff too but you’ll just have to watch to find out. Or go to either the Youtube of Soundcloud page where there’s a list in the description. By the way, Critapocalypse is on itunes now. Feel free to have a listen there or something. Soundcloud version after the link below.
My rules for what constitutes a Christmas film is pretty simple. A) the film should be set at Christmas. Kind of a no brainer that. 2) The film should promote family togetherness over the pursuit of material things. And D) There should be at least some element of heart-warming schmaltz going on. This all sounds a little twee and silly but it is the basic ingredients of all good Christmas films. Scrooged has it, Die Hard has it and even Bad Santa fulfils that criteria. Home Alone may be one of the finest examples of those requirements being met. Also it has one of the most violent finales to a film ever filmed. Well, within the restrictions of a PG certificate.

That right there is the super sexy, pretty much a glorified slideshow version of episode 3 of the Critapocalypse Podcast. In this episode we review various stuff such as Sunset Overdrive, Slugs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014), Episode 1 of the new seasons of The Flash and Arrow and various other things. Click the link below for the Soundcloud streaming version which you can also download and listen while you walk to work… you’re nearly 2 hour walk to work.
So we went and made another of these stupid bloody podcasts. In case you missed it last time, Critapocalypse is a podcast I make with my buddy Matt over at Cinemageddon. In it we review a load of random stuff. Mostly TV shows, films and games, but often random things we’ve done.
