In this short solo episode, I conclude our 1970s Mel Brooks coverage by talking about 'Silent Movie' and 'High Anxiety' (one of which I liked, the other, not so much).
Expect talk about Woody Allen, Alfred Hitchcock and more.
To infinity and beyond! Join Jake and I as we journey from Venice, to Rio to space with our viewing of one of the most ridiculous James Bond films- 'Moonraker'.
This week it's true-crime time, as we discuss Sidney Lumet's 'Dog Day Afternoon', the New York set bank-heist film starring Al Pachino and John Cazale.
We also find time to discuss a tonne of other things from a classic Only Fools and Horses episode, misunderstanding Michael Collins, casting The Terminator, comparing modern-day Pachino to DeNiro and much more.
Continuing my coverage of the films of Woody Allen, in this episode I talk about 'Sleeper' (set in the future) and 'Love and Death' (set in the past). I also talk about 'Demolition Man' more than I thought I would...
Expect talk of 'Mary Poppins Returns', Videoplus, the 'Dr Strangelove' pie-fight, The Bill and much, much more as Jake and I discuss Alan Parker's gangster musical 'Bugsy Malone'.
This week I was delighted to be joined by Stacey from the podcast Rough Giraffe to discuss the Peter Bogdanovich screwball comedy 'What's Up Doc?' starring Barbara Streisand.
