The Halloween Rewatch Project - ‘Halloween’ (2007)

Halloween is right around the corner, so at WHINE+SPACE it’s time to look back at a true seminal work of horror cinema, we talk, naturally of ‘Halloween’....2007 Rodney Zombie Edition.

Join us as we dive deep into the murky, grimy, tops-off-Tuesday-infused world of Rod Zombie, as he creates quite the work of auteurism that answers the eternal question: what if everyone behaved shittily, would you in turn behave like a proper shit?


There’s only one way to find out!

'IT: Chapter Two' review

Is ‘It: Chapter Two’ actually Shit: Chapter Poo?


That’s exactly what we’re here to find out, and find out we do - in this bumper length review of the hottest clown biopic this side of ‘Joker’. Here at Whine+Space, we’re both huge fans of Stephen King’s novel, so how do we feel the Loser’s Club do with a second crack of the whip?

Will we go Full Turtle? Will we have sudden sexual revelations? Will we make the cut? There’s only one way to find out!

The Matrix Rebooted


Everyone knows that WHINE+SPACE have their fingers on the pulse, delivering timely discussion on breaking topics that are lighting up the social medias like no-one’s business - which is exactly why we waited several weeks to discuss the news of Warner Bros. announcing production of a fourth film in the ‘Matrix’ series, a mini-lifetime after the largely poorly received sequels.

Will ‘The Matrix 4’ make the franchise 100% LIT once again? Will audiences overcome their inherent scepticism of continuing this long dormant property? Will Neo get a dog?

’Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood’ review

Those swinging sixties, eh?

With the free love and the drugs and the music and the Vietnam and the hippies and the cults and the murder - what a time to be alive! Clearly Quentin Tarantino thinks so, but the real question is - do we? Join us as we sit down to discuss the 9th film from that fella and bring a close to our months-long Rewatch Project of his back catalogue.


And away we go!

The Tarantino Rewatch Project - ‘The Hateful Eight’

Baby, it’s cold outside! Also, you’re going to need to nail the door shut. No, with two pieces of wood.


Yep, WHINE+SPACE are gearing up for the UK release of ’Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ and our Tarantino Rewatch Project is drawing to a close with a look back at the claustrophobia-filled, racism-suffused, blood-drenched walls of Minnie’s Haberdashery - and the lovable band of killers, thieves and killers that we like to call ‘The Hateful Eight’

The Halloween Rewatch Project - ‘Halloween: Resurrection’

Hooooo boy!

It looks like we’re coming towards the end of yet another timeline and in a manner which is arguably more full of errors in judgment than ‘The Curse of Michael Myers’ could ever hope to be.


Yet despite a grand smorgasbord of poor decisions, a horrible mistreatment of Laurie’s character and the crushing weight of the early 2000s captured in pure, undiluted form, we can’t help but have some strange sense of misguided affection for ‘Resurrection’ - possibly because we have the news of ‘Halloween Kills’ and ‘Halloween Ends’ to soothe our wounds!

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ review

Take your grief, pack it into a tiny ball deep inside and let loose - it’s time for a summer holiday! We join Peter and the gang on a delightful vacation, taking in such sights as the Fire Monster! Water Guy! Fishbowl Man!


Join WHINE+SPACE for a post-Endgame after match special, as we try and grapple with the Night Monkey within us all.

The Halloween Rewatch Project - ‘Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later’ commentary

Heck, we’ve gone and created a new timeline! I guess Paul Stephen Rudd has been messing around with the Quantum Realm again, because it seems we’ve shat Halloween 4, 5 and 6 down the pan and are returning with our in-depth look back at ‘H20’. We join Laurie Strode two decades after she had a somewhat rough Samhain, where she’s the headmistress of a big ole’ fancypants private school, has a terribly-haired Josh Harnett for a son and is nursing a commendable drinking problem. But, would you believe it, her errant brother comes a-calling and Laurie has to get her Bogeyman-killing mojo back in action.


What do we make of this sequel to 1 and 2? Do we agree with Paul Stephen Rudd shitting 4, 5 and 6 down the pan? Most importantly, how do we feel about H20 in light of Halloween 2018’s eventual *double* sacking-off of the continuity? There’s only one way to find out!

The Halloween Rewatch Project - ‘Halloween - The Curse of Michael Myers’ (Theatrical cut) commentary 

Curses!

We’ve all had them placed upon us at one time or another, but it seems like old Michael Myers is having a particularly bad case of it, bless him, because the symptoms seem to be featuring in a truly batshit film which is neither here nor there. Join us as we dive into the bonkers world of Halloween 6 and try and make sense of the film’s messy production, its multiple versions and whether any story explaining Michael could ever satisfy

The Tarantino Rewatch Project - ‘Django Unchained’

Do you like slavery? Is that you kind of thing? Are you all in on slavery? If so, this probably isn’t the film, or indeed podcast, for you.


Old Quentin is enlisting Christoph Waltz to work his sorcery once again and magic is indeed what flows forth from him. But can the cast of other no-hopers like Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx and Sam Jackson possibly keep up? There’s only one way to find out - and that’s to hit play on this here earbook with all the speed of the fastest gun in the south!
