Slip on your hidden blade Oxfords (not brogues), and get ready to jet off in style as Matt Rushton hosts our episode on 2017's Kingsman The Golden Circle, starring Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Pedro Pascal, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum.

 

Expect The Rock to show up (of course), a direct lift of Hugh Grant's villain from Paddington 2, and an even more shamelessly direct rip off of Moonraker... but we suppose that's pretty fitting.

ANNOUNCEMENT: After this episode, we've decided to change our schedule to release episodes every two weeks. We've put a little announcement at the beginning of this episode where you can hear more, but rest assured we are not going away!

 

We're in the deep end, watch as we dive in with Drew hosting for our discussion of 2018's remake of a remake of a 1937 movie; 2018's A Star is Born, starring Lady Gaga alongside the project's writer, producer and director Bradley Cooper.

 

CW: This is quite possibly the most "serious" movie we've done so far, so expect discussions of suicide, self-harm, alcoholism and substance abuse.

Starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham and Charlize Theron, and directed by F. Gary Gray.

 

Expect, and we're not joking, 10,000 mile car chases, significant foreshadowing of a meteor heading towards Earth, and Brendan Fraser showing up as one of his most iconic characters. It gets wild

Expect evil wizards created by name generator, wandering off whilst on work experience at Shepperton Studios, and you'll find out which of us actually appears in a Harry Potter movie!
