Episode 43: Romper Stomper (1992)

Film chosen by Patrick, introduced by Devlin Putting together today's cover image encapsulated a bit of a general problem when it comes to discussing a film like Romper Stomper: does it glamorise or even romanticise the character, and by extension the subject matter, of the film to portray him in a way that, well, makes...

Episode 42: Freejack (1992)

Film chosen by guest Aidan, introduced by Devlin Sir Mick Jagger, in an inexplicably large helmet, looks directly down the barrel of the lens right as it crash zooms in on his face, his trademark pout at its very poutiest: When our good friend Aidan, with whom we had been trying to coordinate to join...

Episode 41: Aliens (1986) LV-RMP SERIES

Introduced by MattJames Cameron’s action-packed, balls-to-the-wall, Southern Comfort meets The Magnificent Seven follow up to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror classic, Alien, was first released around this time in the summer of '86.

Episode 39: All The Real Girls (2003)

Episode 34: Darby O’Gill and the Little People

Film chosen and introduced by Devlin I admit early and often in this episode to having something of an inability to process whimsy. Despite having previously chosen a family fantasy film of sorts (Terry Gilliam's The Adventures of Baron Munchausen) my childhood had a marked dearth of family-style fantasy films, an even bigger dearth of...

Episode 33: L.A. Confidential (1997)

Film chosen by listener Oli, introduced by Devlin Big thanks to Oli (@Remedi_RPM) for requesting this movie for review! As stated in the episode, I sort of filed this one away in this amorphous group of worthy-but-slightly-dull movies that I probably should have watched by now and would probably never really get around to, given...
