Mirror, mirror, on the wall, which podcast host is the creepiest of them all?

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 episode we discuss:

Director hokey cokey

There can be only one…. good choice for the Highlander reboot

Star Wars news

Indiana Jones gets another sequel, can we love again after the Crystal Skulls debacle?

Bill Paxton RIP

Alien Covenant and Ridley Scott…again!

What’s missing from Kong: Skull Island

What we loved about Logan

And as two middle-aged men discuss Wonder Woman, we have to ask…who is the creepiest - Allen or Chris?

TRAILER TALK:

Wonder Woman

Pirates Of The Carribean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Power Rangers

Despicable Me 3

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Logan, John Wick 2 and Little Shop Of Horrors (1986)

MISCELLANEOUS:

Two great but lesser known Bill Paxton films-

Near Dark

And

One False Move

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

Mar 6, 2017

Episode 20. X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

With the recent release of Logan, Allen and Chris look at the first Wolverine spin-off. Snikt! Snikt!

Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in the X-Men series was a star making, break out performance so it was only a matter of time before he got his own spin-off solo film. Which is how we got X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a film so bad it made Allen and Chris drop to their knees and scream to the heavens.

In this episode:

How to waste Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool

Allen burns Will.I.Am

Liev Schreiber, the worst kitty cat since George Galloway.

Canadian references

Terrible, terrible special effects

And dildo names!

 

Remind yourself of the film here:

Watch the (actually, quite cool) trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6p52S381nE

 

And watch Wolverine use his adamantium claws and marvel at the terrible SFX work (whoever uploaded this to Youtube added their own soundtrack and some captions and thinks this constitutes a “great moment” but it’s still better than watching the actual film): https://youtu.be/pew1RWnTafM?t=16s

 

MISCELLANEOUS:

The worst video of all time. George Galloway, former Member Of Parliament, pretending to be a cat. Watch if you dare:
