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.

Oct 6, 2017

 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?


Oct 1, 2017

"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.

Sep 25, 2017

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?

Sep 4, 2017

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?

Aug 18, 2017

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...

Aug 6, 2017

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?

Jul 23, 2017

Cross and Gordy hot from a Friday night show of Dunkirk share their initial thoughts on Christopher Nolan's latest.

Jul 16, 2017

Ahead of the imminent release of Dunkirk, Gordy & Cross discuss Christopher Nolan's career so far.

Jun 25, 2017

"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.

Jun 11, 2017

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..?

May 21, 2017

Gordy naturally slides from Weird Science to Martha Marcy May Marlene. Elizabeth Olsen delivered a remarkable performance in her debut. And John Hawkes is sublime. With some cult dynamics and a little speculation that it's a way of life Cross would like (minus the most unsavoury moments... obviously)

It wasn't widely seen, but very much well worth a watch. And Gordy with a *GOOD MOVIE ALERT* klaxon (Cheers Mitch! But all my movies are AWESOME) it's well worth a listen. 

May 7, 2017

Cross invites Mitch and Gordy to partake in some uneasy laughs with his selection of Chris Morris' Four Lions. A comedy about terrorism..!

Apr 30, 2017

Mitch invites Gordy & Cross to experience some old school Hollywood class in the shape of George Cukor's timeless tale of celebrity culture, 'art vs money' and the search for true love, as Cary Grant 's C.K. Dexter Haven crashes the wedding of his ex-wife Tracy Lord (Katharine Hepburn). Will they be raising a toast, or raising objections?

Apr 23, 2017

Chosen by listener Callie Howard. A feel-good favourite of hers it's a riotous tale of girls behaving badly, and she expects Gordy to titter, Cross to blush and Mitch to get the rage. How did her predictions pan out..?

Apr 16, 2017

Gordy takes us to 1985 and 15 year old adolescence. John Hughes' Weird Science is generally speaking fondly remembered in all quarters... will it be so for Mitch and Cross too?

And at the end of the day, if you were 15 and had the capability to create your own woman, this is how you'd roll? No?

Apr 9, 2017

Gordy and Mitch hop on to Cross' Train To Busan. Chaos ensues... But is it agreeable chaos?

Apr 2, 2017

Pascal Laugier's arthouse torture-porn movie has divided audiences and critics alike since its release in 2008. Will it unite the Three Men?

Mar 26, 2017

Continuing our discussion of the films of John Carpenter, this week we cover his career from The Thing up to the present day.

Mar 19, 2017

As so many of John Carpenter's movies were ineligible for inclusion we thought we'd just talk about all of them instead. This week we manage to get from the beginning of his career all the way up to Escape From New York.

Mar 12, 2017

It's the grand finale to awards season. The biggest night of the year in Hollywood. It all went a bit awry with the Best Picture award. What did Gordy, Cross & Mitch make of it all..?

Please note, there are SPOILERS throughout.

Also, Mitch has since seen Moonlight, and it is very good indeed - best Best Picture winner since No Country For Old Men. In his opinion. Which is correct.

Mar 5, 2017

Bill Paxton passed away on 25 February at the age of 61. He has been a huge part of our movie watching experience over the last thirty years, so join us this week in a celebration of the great man's work.

He will be greatly missed.

Feb 26, 2017

Hi, I'm Gordy. Wanna play?

That's the question that the precocious Gordy has asked of Mitch (known to suffer from Pediophobia) and Cross. We go to the origin story of our favourite pint sized killer doll. The many sequels have become notorious for a variety of reasons, but how does the original stand up to the 3 Men scrutiny? Will they all be friends till the end?

Feb 19, 2017

1984 brought us many fine things but This is Spinal Tap surely ranks among the finest. Its genuine charm and affection for the subject matter is a joy to behold even as they exploit with subtle wit every code and convention the documentary genre and the 80's heavy Rock scene has to offer.

Gordy, of course, hadn't seen it. Surely he, being a Hard Rock fan, would love it.....?

Feb 13, 2017

Adapted from Poet Laureate Ted Hughes' book, The Iron Man, and directed by Brad Bird, this week's movie never really found the audience it deserved on initial release. Mitch loves it to bits, but what will Gordy and Cross make of it?
