Episode 17: Everybody Loves Boobs.

Join Allen and Chris as we run in slo-mo on the beach.

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.

In this bonus episode we discuss:

JJ Abrams giving up remakes

Is Tim Burton a great director?

Ridley Scott’s campaign to annoy Allen and Chris

The importance of the CHIPS brand

Our love for Sean William Scott

Jay Baruchel’s love for Celtic

and the worst remake idea Chris has ever heard

 

TRAILER TALK:

Baywatch

Logan (Wolverine 3)

Cars 3

Alien Covenant

16: Footloose (1984) and Footloose (2011).

Let’s hear it for the boys as Allen and Chris get their dancing shoes on and look at the much loved 1984 film Footloose and the 2011 remake.

We talk about the original hit filled soundtrack, the real life story of the town that banned dancing, why it’s a bad idea to play Russian roulette with blanks, Kevin Bacon going back to school, stage kids VS Chris Penn. We praise the daddy John Lithgow while Allen hates Miles Teller and Chris is going through some stuff…. anyway, I thought this was a party. LET'S DANCE!
