In which Allen and Chris talk Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, trailers and old people.

In between 'proper' episodes (where we delve into a particular film or franchise) we'll be doing bonus episodes where we talk about wider trends in sequel culture, sequel news, new trailers and whatever the hell we like.

 

**so we do inevitably talk about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story but we keep it light on details so as not to spoil it. If you’d rather skip those sections altogether:

19:15-26:16 we talk very vaguely about our thoughts on Rogue One, very minor details discussed.

26:16 -37:17 we talk about the idiotic right wing ‘controversy’ around it and the more understandable controversy around CGI representations of dead actors, but there are no specific plot points discussed**

Diminishing Returns Episode 15 

DIMINISHING RETURNS: A comedy podcast about movie sequels, prequels, spin-offs and reboots. Hosted by Allen and Chris. WARNING: Contains Scottish accents and spoilers.

Dec 12, 2016

We decided to talk about the 5th Die Hard film, which with hindsight was a mistake….so we talk about anything else,

-the first 4 films,

-the plethora of ‘Die Hard on a…’ films that followed in the first film’s wake

-Allen’s glamorous celeb encounter

-how John McClane went from everyman to superhero

-the many actors offered the role before Bruce Willis

Yet, inevitably (after about 30 odd minutes into this hour long podcast), we get round to talking about A Good Day To Die Hard: it’s unclear plot, its misuse of Spartacus alum and it’s pointless references to the classic original.

Read up on/remind yourself of the plot here:
