May 13, 2019

We love Cox...and Hopkins

Allen and Chris break out the chianti to talk the first two film incarnations of everyones favourite cannibal, Hannibal Lector (or Lecktor, if you prefer). Michael Mann's Manhunter, starring Brian Cox was a flop on release but it's reputation has grown to a bonafide cult classic. While Jonathan Demme's Silence Of The Lambs was a smash hit, with Anthony Hopkins taking over the role of Hannibal and launching the character into the pop culture zeitgeist. 

In an entertainment landscape filled with serial killers and cop procedurals we look at two of the films that influenced so much of what we see today.

In this episode:

-Michael Mann, style over substance? Hell no.

-Sure Hannibal gets all the press but lets talk about William Peterson and Jodie Foster as Will Graham and Clarice Starling

-Silence Of The Lambs, surprisingly socially sensitive for a big budget 90s serial killer flick

-a dream woman

-Dennis Farina

-Mindhunter

-party guests, ranked

-and we figure out the perfect first date

We get sexy in our post Valentine’s look at the third Fifty Shades film.

Last year on episode we looked at the first two films in the Fifty Shades franchise, we were not fans. But the 2nd one was better than the first, so can the third film keep this trend going?

Listen to two middle –aged straight dudes (the collective noun for which is 'Podcasters') talk about a film that was not made for their demographic.

In this episode

-The true story behind the Monopoly man

-Christian Grey is a terrible human being

-The real satirical subtext of this film.

-The foster system exposed!

-Chris launches himself as a R and B singer

-And of course, butt stuff!

Michael Keaton's stint as Batman, as good as we remembered?

Tim Burton’s Batman was a cultural juggernaut in 1989, riding a wave of hype and an iconic performance from Jack Nicholson to box office success. The unlikely casting of Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne/Batman worked and this ‘darker’ version of Batman can be seen as the forebearer of so many of the comic book adaptations that now rule the box office. With Batman Returns, Burton drove his vision for the dark knight further, tripling the villains to include Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman, Danny Devito’s penguin and the new villain, Christopher Walken’s Max Shreck

In this episode:

-How dark is this dark version of Batman?

-Batman 89 vs Batman 66

-The ghost of David Bowie

-Jack Nicholson laughing all the way to the bank

-The Joker knows a graphic designer

-A great Michelle Pfeiffer performance as Selena Kyle/ Catwoman.

-Danny Devito’s relatable performance as Penguin

-The Ghost of David Bowie pops by again

-And let me be clear, two uncannily pitch perfect Christopher Walken impersonations

Remind yourself of the films here:

More like Jason BORE-hees, am I right fellas?

We return to Camp Crystal lake for the third time to round out the ‘Paramount era’ of Friday the 13th fims with 7th and 8th films in franchise.

7: The New Blood, has Jason Vorhees take on a psychic. While 8: Jason Takes Manhattan, finally sees the horror icon leave Crystal Lake for the big city. Jason Vs 'Carrie'! Jason Vs NY gangs! With killer concepts like that, these films can’t lose! Can they?

In this episode

  • Jason gets used to the water
  • Bad psychic battle tactics
  • Confusing timelines
  • Confusing travel times
  • Negligent electrical companies
  • And perhaps the biggest question of all, can Chris bear to watch any more of this film series?  

 

Remind yourself of the films here

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

Oct 15, 2018

It’s October so like every other podcast, here’s a loosely Halloween themed episode

In between 'franchise' episodes (where we delve into a particular film or series of films) 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…

-Brad Pitt’s World War Z sequel moves forward….but what will they call it?

-101 Dalmations ‘ Cruella DeVille never stood a chance

-Hellboy sizzle reel

-Halloween 2018 (the film) has an honest producer

-It’s Allen’s annual Halloween quiz

-The Suicide Squad sequel make a bold move

-and in an episode full of horrors, the man–flu!

Allen and Chris bring to life a monster of a podcast

James Whale’s two horror staples cemented Universal as the home of monster films, made Boris Karloff a superstar and gave us some of the most eduring images in horror. The two oldest films we’ve looked at so far but what films.

In this episode

  • Keeping that running time low
  • When are these film’s set?
  • Groovy intros
  • Undead chicks
  • How sane are you?
  • Colin Clive’s raspy voice
  • Elsa Lanchester’s iconic ‘Bride’
  • The queer subtext of Frankenstein
  • The other film going on in Frankenstein
  • We query the Scientific method of Dr. Pretorius
  • A new sponsor!
  • And we talk about jerking it. A lot.

Remind yourself of the films here:
