‘Star Wars - The Force Awakens’ commentary

There has been an awakening - it were a year ago!

Yes, it's hard to believe it, but it's been an entire year since the release of 'Star Wars no. 7: A Forced Awakening' - and what a year it's been! We’ve seen the return of the franchise to a place of cultural prominence and affection that seemed inconceivable a decade ago. But, a year later, does the latest entry in the Star Wars saga retain the shine it held for us upon its initial release? Where do we think this revival of Star Wars excelled, and where did it fall short? And how will the release of ‘Rogue One’ effect our view of a saga which has been, up to this point, a distinctly family affair?


Find out the answer to all these questions and many more, in our bumper look back at ‘The Force Awakens’!

‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ review

Under the stairs? Behind the fridge? Inside your own arse?

Search through all these places and many, many more - as ALL OF WHINE AND SPACE take a trip back into the land of the magicks to find ourselves some fantastical beasts. But will we be pleased with what we discover?


it’s been five years since we last experienced a new Cinematic Potterverse tale and despite our prior fandom for the franchise, it’s fair to say that neither of us were chomping at the bit for a further entry. But has this ambivalence lead to us feeling apathetic about the eventual film, or have we been left pleasantly surprised and ready to dive back into the Potterverse for 20 more annual films?

There’s only one way to to find out, so lock yourself in your room, grab your wand and prepare to do a spell under the covers - it’s going to be magical!

The Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast- 'Partners in Crime'

Everyone enjoys fitness, right? Hitting the treadmill, feeling the burn, the rush of endorphins! But what if you DON”T enjoy feeling the burn, but DO want to stay as svelte as TV’s Doctor Who in one of his tight suits? Well, Russel T Davies has got you covered, because he’s introducing a program where your excess chub can now be turned into absolutely adorable little creatures who make delightful noises and give you friendly friendly waves!


But adorable chub-creatures aside, is this episode a bitter pill to swallow? Or does the Combined Comedy Chops of Daniel Tennant and Catherine Taterson brush aside any misgivings with a somewhat legendary mime sequence? There’s only one way to find out, so uncork your pill bottle, run a glass of water and gobble down a mouthful of magic beans - because your chub is about to get that bit more adorable!

Halloween special - ‘The Shining: Extended Cut’ commentary

Happy Halloween!

Or IS it? Well, it kind of depends on which member of the Torrance family you are, because if you’re Jack then you’re having an absolutely wicked time. You might say that you were having the time of your life. However, if you’re Wendy or Danny - well…not so much!


But one thing we *can* be certain of is that ALL OF WHINE AND SPACE are having an amazo time, as we sit down for a lovely Halloween treat and look back at a seminal work of horror - Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 adaptation of Stephen King’s ’The Shining’! Everyone can agree it’s an iconic addition to the horror genre, but does it deserve its esteemed reputation? Does it lose points for its loose interpretation of the source material, or does it wisely jettison excess baggage to strip a concept down to its terrifying core?

So, join us as we pedal around on our Big Wheel’s, lose our shit in our bathrobes and generally scream incoherently into the night!

‘Doctor Strange’ review

It’s halloween, so things are bound to get a little spooky, a little peculiar, a little…strange? Hell, things are going to get a LOT strange - STEVEN STRANGE, that is!


On this week’s podcast, we’re bringing together one slack jawed idiot who’ll accept anything Marvel feeds him, and one joyless, slow witted cynic who thinks he’s somehow better than the intensely loved genre he’s reviewing! The Marvel Cinematic Universe is finally opening up a portal into a world of true peculiarity, of magicks, mystics and medics - but will WHINECAST go along for the ride? There’s only one way to find out, so grab your Portal Opening Brass Duck Whistle and follow us into a whole new realm!

'Captain America - Civil War’ commentary

It is a period of civil war.

Or IS it? It looks like our beloved collection of Avengers are having one of those unfortunate misunderstandings, like when you say you’re going to meet your friend at Curry’s, but instead they go to Dixon’s by mistake. And just like in that scenario, things then inevitably escalate to full blown trading of blows.


But who’s going to get thoroughly blown in this oncoming storm? Will it be Steve Rogers, the titular hero of the film - or devilish upstart Tony Stark, who’s snuck along with all of his mates to troll Chris Evans by trying to steal his own film out from under him? There’s only one way to find out, and much like with Harry Hill, it’s with unrelenting violence.

So, break into a Serbian military facility, root around in the back room for a TV and VHS player, and grab Mission Report December 16th 1991 - it’s time to go to war!

‘Ant-Man’ commentary

DOES size matter?

That’s what WHINECAST is going to try and find out, as we take a long overdue look back at Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’, the undisputed epic finale of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s second phase, - way bigger, bolder and more ambitious than ‘Age of Ultron', for realsies.


But with one half of the WHINECAST team adoring the film and the other feeling passionate ambivalence towards it, are we heading towards a brutal and ugly bruise up, one that leaves the founding friendship of the podcast in tattered, unrepairable shreds?

The answer, is no.

The Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast- 'Voyage of the Damned'

Christmas in September?!? Who'da thunk it?

Well, it's happening, baby. It is on. It is going down - this vessel, that is! We rejoin our good friends Tennant and T-dog for yet another Christmas romp through a collapsing, crashing space leviathan and if that's got you excited then soz, Bae, 'cos this episode is not exactly the height of New Who!


But does this dollop of festive cheer deserve its rather negative reputation? Is there ANY woman that Tennant doesn't immediately charm? Most importantly, does Russel T Dog write Midshipman Frame into his web of sin?

Find out - in the NEW Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast!

The Doctor Who Rewatch Podcast- 'Last of the Time Lord'

The last one. The last EVER. Last ever podcast for a series 3 episode that is!

*chortle chortle*


After a long and fairly circuitous path, we've finally wound our way to the end of series 3, the culmination of the twenty episode Master arc and the departure of old Martha from the role of full time companion. There are bound to be tears, it's only natural. But are they tears of sadness, or of joy?

More importantly, will we find that 'Last of the Time Lords' saves or squanders the storyline set in motion by 'Utopia'? There's a lot riding on this and we're not going to let you down by delivering a succinct, digestible slice of podcast - oh no, quite the opposite! So take your laser screwdriver, jam it up your bum, set it to full discharge and prepare to watch this series three finale from your little cute birdcage!

'Spectre' commentary

Happy birthday to US!

Yes, it's officially five years since we started 'All of Whine and Space' and we've decided to celebrate by going full circle. Our first ever podcast was us leaping into the BlogalongaBond project with a commentary for 'You Only Live Twice', so we're celebrating five years behind the mic with a commentary for Dannii Craig's fourth outing as Jimmy Bond 007 - 'Spectre'!


But in the aftermath of the commercially and critically beloved 'Skyfall' can the creative team bottle magic twice? We've got almost all of the prior film's participants back in the saddle, so with that dream team at the helm, what can go wrong, right? Right!?

So join us as two Bond aficionados take a trip back to October 2015 to try and determine if we truly are brothers from another mother!
