We're still the Ace Degenerates! Just had to give an episode over to the new YouTube series Cobra Kai. A follow up of sorts that we've all been waiting for!
This is arguably the most fun we've had recording a podcast. And all we'll say is that if you have even the slightest modicum of love for The Karate Kid, that you'll LOVE this new series! And you'll most likely LOVE the pod too. Cardigan = Winning!
Please do leave feedback, give us an iTunes rating and also tell your friends.
A little bit of a different episode this week. Gordy and Cross set aside their differences from last week to get into a (somewhat) rambling discussion on why we just love movies!
I'm sure you'll agree with at least a bit of the chat here and where you don't let us know why not! Hope you enjoy it! In the meantime, look forward to the next few weeks where we'll be hitting up some old flicks once more. Please share, rate and tell your mates too!
Lets Get Ready To Rumble... It's TIME! A face off for the ages beckon. For longer than Gordy cares to remember, Cross has banged on about Thin Red being better than Private Ryan.
So we decided to commit it to the podcast and settle it once and for all!
We hope you enjoy it, and we'd love to hear which side of the fence you fall on? Please share with others and please leave a review if you can too. We'll be back next week, if murder wasn't committed during this episode.
A Quiet Place is not being too quiet at the Box Office. So the '3 Men' take a look, and not so quietly. Which way will they roll on this massively popular new release and the associated cinema etiquette that appears to be associated with it.
Starring real life couple, John Krasinski (who also directs and writes) and Emily Blunt as well as the simply awesome Millicent Simmonds, it's worth checking out and it's definitely worth having a listen to us pair! Hope you enjoy and please rate and share as you see appropriate.
Gordy and Cross take a dabble in the world we now live with the Netflix release Alex Garland's 'Annihilation'. It wasn't afforded a cinema release beyond the States and came straight to instant streaming.
Have a listen and see what we made of the movie and also this Brave New World of movie releases. Hope you enjoy the episode! Please feel free to share us with your friends and leave us a review on iTunes.
Gordy and Cross recently went to see Rob Schneider live during the Glasgow Comedy Festival. Upon meeting him, we asked him what movie of his he'd like us to do a podcast on and he chose 'Big Stan'. When duty calls... the Men answer! Prison Rape Comedy at it's finest!
It was a movie we'd never heard of, and one he described as really difficult to get made, have a listen and see what you think? If you could share our content and leave a review on iTunes it would be most appreciated.
Gordy and Cross escape the mundane constraints of modern life with a trip to the Oasis courtesy of Steven Spielberg and Ernest Cline.
They ponder digital brothels, avatars and licensing issues.
Hope you enjoy the episode and as always let us know what you think and share with your friends!
So with the impending home media release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi we thought we should throw out this episode from the archive.
Gordy and Cross both hit The Last Jedi one more time. There's been an opinion shift in The Force, guess who?
Hope you enjoy the episode! Please share, review and tell your friends as you see fit.
May The Force be with you, always.
This is the second week running we've done an Audience Selection. And you know what... why not!
Lynn Montgomery-Hawke selected this little Richard Linklater ditty from 1995. Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Céline (Julie Delpy) cross paths and spend just 24 hours together in Vienna.
She was worried about what Gordy would make of it, however she suggested she was sure Cross would like it. How will they roll with it? Hope you enjoy the episode Lynn, and also to everyone else out there, we had a great time recording it!
As always, please review us on iTunes and tell your friends!
Another audience selection this week. So it's a thank you Dave Brindle for his nice little selection of some very early Spielberg action with Duel. Cross and Gordy talk it out and as usual end up off piste at many different points. Though a thoroughly enjoyable chat it was. Hope you all enjoy the episode and especially Dave!
Gordy and Cross have both hit Black Panther in recent weeks, but also had the fortune to hit Blade on 35mm as part of the Glasgow Film Festival.
It felt apt to compare and contrast and discuss the latest Marvel superhero flick! With the added cultural significance that seems to be in tow with it. Hope you enjoy!
As usual, share, review, tell your friends and feedback to us your thoughts! x
One of Gordy's favourite movies of all time comes to the 3 Man Table this week. It's one Cross had seen at release, however he'd forgotten enough of it to warrant a revisit.
Based on Bret Easton Ellis' novel of the same name we tackle The Rules of Attraction. Written and Directed by Roger Avary and starring a post-Dawson's Creek Van Der Beek. As well as Shannyn Sossamon, Ian Somerhalder and Kip Pardue.
Moral choices and life experiences come into the discussions as well as the usual nonsense. As usual, any feedback, reviews, comment and suggestions for future output is always appreciated! Happy listening folks.
At some point in almost all our lives we've experienced frustration with our work colleagues. Maybe The Belko Experiment offers the perfect solution to address that aggro... In any case Gordy and Cross get into it, chatting over this movie from the director of Wolf Creek and the writer of Guardians of the Galaxy.
As Arnie said he'd be back, so did we. So here we are, kicking of the new season with a retrospective look at the Terminator Franchise (we only recognise two of them as Canon).
More specifically Gordy and Cross have differing opinions on which of the two is the superior. It's great to be back, we hope you enjoy!
Gordy and Cross, as they did with The Force Awakens, hit the midnight showing of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. What would the verdict be?
***Disclaimer*** Gordy has now seen it twice and his verdict has changed significantly.
Gordy and Cross hit up the newly released Blade Runner 2049 as part of our ongoing Hot Take series.
Both fans of the original 1982 movie, how would this new Denis Villeneuve effort be received?
"Be open minded." Cross said. Gordy was open minded.
Did that lead to Cross success with his choice of Hudson Hawk, a Bruce Willis movie from the early 90s that had passed Gordy by.
Audience selection once again, and it's thanks to Kirsty McGregor who has requested that Gordy and Cross get together to watch What We Do In The Shadows.
Directed by Taika Waititi (Wilderpeople and Thor: Ragnarok) it follows the daily lives of a group of vampiric flatmates and the struggles they face.
Would this mockumentary go down better with Gordy than Spinal Tap did? And Cross was already a convert... would it be a united thumbs up?
Gordy and Cross revisit peak Cameron and Schwarzenegger with a big screen outing for T2 3D!
They were both fans (who wouldn't be) but how would this reassessment pan out?
Cross and Gordy venture to the Australian suburbs of 1987 to 'enjoy' the inspired by real life Hounds of Love. Last time we journeyed to Australia was for Wake In Fright. Will this be any less traumatic...
Baby Driver has been quite the success story as things have turned out. A few weeks ago and fresh from having seen it, Gordy and Cross talked it out. Gordy has generally taken a stance against Edgar Wright considering him vastly overrated amongst other things, whilst Cross has been a staunch fan and loving most, if not all of the output. Which side of the fence will they fall on with this one?
Cross and Gordy hot from a Friday night show of Dunkirk share their initial thoughts on Christopher Nolan's latest.
Ahead of the imminent release of Dunkirk, Gordy & Cross discuss Christopher Nolan's career so far.
"Reach the stars, Fly a fantasy, Dream a dream and what you see will be"
Gordy does his absolute superhuman best to get The Men to do what they dream this week.
Criminally overlooked on its initial release, Jonathan Demme's spirited yuppie nightmare gem features early turns from Melanie Griffith and Jeff Daniels, and also features Ray Liotta in his screen debut. Will Gordy & Cross be wild about it..?
