'The Hobbit - The Desolation of Smaug' review

It's that time of the year again!


Where we gather away from the winds, the rain and (sometimes) the snow, into the dark and warm cinema to see if our old friend Petey Jacko can possibly justify adapting a short children's book into a three part, nine hour fantasy epic.



Does he do it? Does he make you generate love and caring for a bunch of Dwarves who are, inarguably, thick as pigshit? There's only one way to find out and that's by clicking on this here link -

The Marvel Vs DC movie mash-up - 'Batman Returns' commentary

Body parts in a sewer? Deformed man leering at young women? Sexy death wish suicide kisses?


Yes, nothing says Christmas like Timmy Burton's second and final entry in the Batman franchise - 'Batman Cum Back'. It's a film that's GOFFIK as all buggery, that's bleak, that's bizarrely humour ridden and one that seems to divide fans from being a classic to being a complete occupation of Gotham by the forces of Timmy B's fevered black dreams - So which is it?






There's only one way to find out and it's to listen to this here commentary and reflect that, no matter how bad your Christmas is going, Selena Kyle's is going worse.


'Batman Returns' Commentary





WARNING - This film may be Tim Burton's pure MEGA LOLZ!!!

Doctor Who - 'The Time of the Doctor' review

It's here.

It's time.

It's up!



After much fanfare, much waiting, much nostalgia, we're finally at the 2013 Christmas special and saying goodbye to the wonderful talented Matt Smith. The young playa had big converse to fill in the wake of Davey Tennant and boy, he didn't flinch for a second, taking on the role wholeheartedly and throwing himself into an entirely different interpretation which won the hearts of the young and old alike!

But now it's time to say goodbye to the raggedy man and, additionally, tie up several lingering plot threads that have ran throughout Matty Smitt's increasingly convoluted tenure. Does Moffat do it? Does Smith get the send off he deserves? Can Jenna Coleman get any cuter?



Find out the answers to these questions and many more in the WHINECAST review!

WHINECAST - Doctor Who - 'The Eleventh Hour' commentary

It's Christmas!

You can't have failed to notice because of all the Christmas stuff everywhere! Now,we all know that an integral aspect of the Christmas experience is the 'Doctor Who' special and this year is even more special than most, as we're saying goodbye to the wonderfully talented Matty Smith, who's moving on to pastures vague.



It's hard to believe it's four years since Smitty first donned the bow tie, but here we are, on the verge of a new Doctor and a new direction for the show. So, we at WHINECAST decided to give Smitty the send off he deserves by sitting down and recording a commentary for his very first episode 'The Eleventh Hour'!

So, step back in time to 2010 and prepare to be introduced to a new production team, a new showrunner, a new companion and, of course, a new doctor!

'The Eleventh Hour' Commentary

We salute you, Matty Smith, you achieved the impossible and convinced an entire generation that bow ties truly are cool!

Twelve Months of Terror - 'Silent Night, Deadly Night' review

It's the most wonderful time of the year - for MURDER!

Yep, we're unbelievably in December and, for goatsinthemachine.wordpress.com 's brainchild 'Twelve Months of Terror', it means it's finally the end of the road, the culmination of a project which has lasted a completely indefinable period of time! This month, we're looking at the controversial little slasher 'Silent Night, Deadly Night' and we'll be asking such questions as does the film deserve its controversial reputation, have you ever killed a person in general or at christmas time, and is it ever justifiable to pistol whip a nun?

Don't forget that WHINECAST will be deploying its final, year late entry in the project, 'New Year's Evil' sometime in January, but in the meantime let's ride our sleighs straight into the very mouth of hell!

'Silent Night, Deadly Night' Review

WARNING - This film may make you root for a nun's death (hopefully) more than you ever have before

Audio on SHIELD #10- 'The Bridge'

Hello there!

Welcome to this week' s edition of Audio on SHIELD! This time, it's a watershed episode as we at WHINECAST reach the end of our ten week commitment and have to make the difficult decision about whether or not to continue the show -WHICH way do we fall, you ask?

Well, there's only one way to find out and that's to listen in to our blistering discussion in which we cover kidnappings, sick burns, sixth degree burns and also our old friend Peter Ecclestone!

Punch it!

The Marvel Vs DC movie mash-up- 'Batman' Commentary

Holy December, Listeners!

After two months of flying high with the Man of Steel, it's time to sink down into the depths of the night, as we finally get ready to spend a couple of months with the world's greatest detective, the most stable man in town, the Dark Knight himself -yes, THE BAT MAN.

So, kicking off our time with the Bat, we have our Tim Burton month (appropriately December), beginning with 1989's 'Batman', starring the delightful Michael Keaton, a man many feared was going to take the caped crusader in a distinctly comical direction - but who's laughing now, eh?

So, sit back in your leather chair, turn off the lights and await for the bat signal to illuminate your brooding visage - it's time!

Yep, we're back with our review of episode 9 of the hit TV shown 'Martin's Asians of SHIELD' and this week, we finally delve into the murky (or entirely reasonable) past of Agent May, pulling back the curtain to see just what hideous monsters lie beneath.

The Marvel Vs DC movie mash-up - 'Superman IV - The Quest for Peace'

And so!

Here we are, finally at the end of our Christopher Reeve journey! We've had good films, we've had bad films, we've had Dick Donner, we've had Dickhead Lester (allegedly) - but now, we reach the end, with what some might term the jewel in the Superman crown!

It's a film notorious, but does 'Quest for Peace' deserve its negative reputation? Is there, like Darth Vader, good within it? There's only one way to be sure and that's to tune in to the newest entry in the Marvel Vs DC movie mash-up!

Audio on SHIELD #8 - 'The Well'

Well, well, well!

Delayed once again due to some spicy Doctor Who action this weekend, we finally manage to slide under the falling door to deliver our review of episode eight of 'Agents of SHIELD', entitled 'The Well'.

But what delights shall we find down there? Will it be superpowered activists? Mentally unravelling clone men?! An unexpected and unexpectedly natural booty call? Perhaps all this AND more - in this week's 'Audio on SHIELD'!

WHINECAST reviews THE DAY OF THE DOCTOR

It's here! It's up! It's on!

After months of waiting, of bed wetting anticipation, the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special has finally arrived and by golly, we've busted our bits to bring you our thoughts on this epic episode ASAP!

It's an episode of huge scale, that redefines both the past and future of the Doctor - but was the episode a success? Listen in as we argue, shout, laugh, play, wee and cry as we discuss the biggest day in the Doctor's life since he misplaced Amy and Rory!

Twelve Months of Terror - 'ThanksKilling' review

It's the time of year where, regardless of what country you're from, your nationality, your race, we all get together to contemplate what we're thankful for. Is it your health? Is it your collection of Victorian pornography? Is it for films such as ThanksKilling? No. No, it's not. Join us for this month's 'Twelve Months of Terror' as we sit ourselves down and encounter a low budget comedy horror that will leave us utterly devastated...and not in a good way.

Howdy, marvellous Marvel fans! We at WHINECAST were held back from recording for SHIELD this past weekend, so sadly weren't able to review 'The Hub' on the night - but like the stallions we are, we're pushing ahead and bringing you a little mid-week treat of a review! So, put the dog out, shut the kids in the basement, light your pipe, turn off the gas, pump up the jam and get ready to find out what lies within 'The Hub', Bub!

The Marvel Vs DC movie mash-up: 'Superman III'

Hallo there, mash-up friends! It can't have escaped your attention that it's November, which clearly makes it the second half of our Christopher Reeve extravaganza - this time the focus being on the decidedly...mixed 'Superman III'. This entry sees our 'old friend' and alleged dickhead Richard Lester taking the franchise reigns with undeserved confidence and delivering a film which is enough to cow even the most stout hearted of cinematic warriors. So, buckle up, turn off the gas and unfurl your pipes - it's time to get serious. 'Superman III' WARNING: This film may rank alongside such hits as 'The Terminator' and 'The Matrix' when it comes to cinema causing viewers to tremble in fear at the thought of the inevitable and brutal mechanical revolution that awaits us all.

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #116 - 'The End'

Yowser.

This is it. We are finally here. After more than two years of analysis, laughter, criticism, surrealism, love, hate and all the other things, we find ourselves at the end of the Lost Rewatch Podcast.

It has been one hell of a journey, one that we embarked upon with optimistic naivety and one which we pulled ourselves through with sheer grit, determination and, of course, an overriding love for Lost, in both sickness AND in health!

So, join us for our final episode in which we get to the bottom of the island, the Man in Black, the destiny of our fateful group of castaways and, most controversially, the take away from the show that lead many to forsake the prior six years of drama that they had watched - the flash sideways. Listen in as we deliver our closing arguments on a show which has been fantastic, has been terrible, that has made our blood boil - but that had always made us care enough about it to get angry in the first place. Will our final assessment be damning? Celebratory? Defensive? Scathing?

There's only one way to find out and that's to hit play on this motherhubbard of a podcast!

'The End' Commentary

All that's left to say is that both of us are beyond grateful for all of those who have stuck with us through this crazy, misguided, fun as hell journey. It's been an incredible experience for us and one that's changed our views on TV, podcasts and hell, so much more! Extra special thanks go out to those lovely listeners who've engaged with us on twitter, patiently correcting us when we got something wrong and laughing with us when some of our verbal diarrhea came out funny.

Thank you so very much for joining us, we hope you've enjoyed the experience half as much as we have, because when everything's said and done, we've had the time of our lives

Namaste.

WHINECAST - 'Gravity' review

This week we're getting up close and personal with our good friends Fitz and Simmons and trying to work out whether they've got anything hidden up their sleeves aside from bags and bags of comedy.

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #115 'What They Died For'


It's staggering to think, but we are finally, no jokes, at the penultimate episode of this entire journey. It's been the very longest of roads to get here, but we have one last intake of breath before the storm unleashes in our final episode, so sit yourself down by the campfire and let young Jacob causally snack on his Dairylea Dunker (TM) as he tells you all about chalk, walls and how they sometimes interact!

Twelve Months of Terror - 'Pumpkinhead' review

It's that time of the year when we all like to wallow in terror, in unbridled, unrelenting horror of the highest order. Of hunting witches, burning werewolves and decapitating pixies.

But for those of us taking part in @rjbayley 's gore-tastic 'TWELVE MONTHS OF TERROR' project, it's ALWAYS that time of year! So, prepare to once again head into the wilderness with a bunch of 25 year old teenagers (when SHALL they learn?!?) as we sit down to review the tale of a man, his boy, their dog and, of course, their giant, malicious revenge monster!

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #114 - 'Across the Sea'

Ladies and gentlemen, it's been a long and winding road to get here, but I think it's fair to say that we're now truly, undeniably in the end game of this epic project. We have had the time of our lives debating, laughing, rejoicing and criticising but it's very soon that this bad boy will be coming to a close.

But we're not quite there yet, and we feel confident in saying that for the Lost Rewatch Podcast, the best is yet to come, something never more true than in this week's episode, which is arguably the jewel in the crown of the whole podcast.

This week, in doing commentary for 'Across the Sea' we're finally coming face to face with one of the most unique, divisive and just plain important episodes of the whole show, an episode on which we flash back further than ever before to an hour of TV that many felt was 'off topic' upon its initial airing. We'll be discussing whether or not that's a fair assessment, but one thing that won't be up for discussion is that, like the episode or not, 'Across the Sea' pretty much sets out the stall of the creative team in terms of what aspects of the story they want to prioritise and focus on in its final countdown. It's not an exaggeration to say that your reaction to 'Across the Sea' may very well determine your perception of the entire series as a whole, and we give the episode it's due in a podcast that might be described by some as 'epic', by others as 'really bloody long'.

Either way, it's time to let this bitch out of the bag! We hope you enjoy this bumper edition of the Lost Rewatch Podcast and we hope you'll be with us for the final two episodes!

'Across the Sea' Commentary

WARNING - This episode proves that there's no more thorough form of post-labour pain relief than a big rock to the head.

Audio on SHIELD #5 'Girl in the Flower Dress'

Hola!

We're back again this week to discuss the latest episode of the hit TV show about those marvellous agents! Y'know, the ones who work at SHIELD?

After a surprisingly strong episode last week, the heat is on as to whether SHIELD can keep up the quality and flourish into the show we all want it to be - so does it manage it this week? Well, as regulars will know, the only way to find out is to listen to that there audio stream below - punch it, Bishop!

The Marvel Vs DC movie mash-up- 'Superman II'

Hola!

Well, it's time for the plot of the mash-up to well and truly thicken (and possibly curdle) as we are leaping into the next phase of our look at the Crissy Reeve quartet, with the ambitious, sprawling, ridiculous, funny, disgracefully compromised 'Superman II'.

Partially filmed as part of one giant production with 78's 'Superman', 'II' is a film whose production is what some would describe as 'a bit troubled'. Others would call it 'an express elevator to hell'. Where lies the truth? The only way to find out is to listen to our damn commentary, but BEWARE, good listener - it's vital to recall that this instalment is recorded for the theatrical Richard Lester cut, known to contain at least 36% more dung!

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #113 'The Candidate'

OMG! Just a minor four episodes of the Lost Rewatch Podcast EVA?!? Say it ain't so!

Well, it IS so, but don't despair as there's many miles to travel before The End. We've got even more triple double triple crosses in store this week, a install return to some cosy cages and, most importantly, Sayid deciding to grow a soul once again at the last minute. Plus, Locke gets pushed into some water and Jin decides that his daughter really doesn't need to grow up with a father, because tumultuous parenthood never lead to any bad on this show, right?

Hey there, Spider-friends!

We're back this week with our fourth review of Jimmy Whedon's new television experience 'Agents of SHIELD' and, this week, there's the hint that the bumpy ride of the series' start may be coming to a close, with Jimmy delivering a reassuringly strong episode - but is it strong enough to hold onto us as audience members?

There's only one way to find out and that's to listen OR ask us directly on twitter or in person, should you live near us and know what we look like.

Holy Mozoh! They're are only five episode left of this entire project, something that stuns, confuses, arouses, excites and, of course, saddens us. But there's no time to get reflective yet, as we've got a gosh darned podcast to deliver!

This week, it's ALL kicking off, with a much anticipated face off between Jack and the Man in Black, Desmond chilling out, flush from his success at performing a perfect dive and, of course, the conclusion to the longest occurrence of a separated couple being reunited in all of fiction!

The Marvel Vs DC movie mash-up - 'Superman'

The nights are getting darker, the wind is getting colder - so it must be October, a month internationally known as the one that kicks off the Christopher Reeve portion of our little Marvel Vs DC project!

Yep, we're jumping forward twelve years since last month to 1978, the year in which Dicky Donner delivered a film that was destined to be hugely influential in its sheer impact on the superhero movie genre.

There's earthquakes, wigs, lazy stars, amazing effects and a man who was possibly born to play the last son of Kryton - so let's get to it!

After finding out what Charles Widmore had brought to the island, this week we see an out of sorts Desmond return. We also see this week how you treat the father of your only grandson, shocking him with electromagnetic energy into the flash sideways.

It's been said a lot in the history of both the TV show and this podcast but Desmond might just have started the beginning of the end.

Twelve Months of Terror - 'Carrie' review

Allegedly, Carrie White eats shit - but is this actually the truth? We try and determine that in this week's searing exposé of a podcast in which we rejoin goatsinthemachine.wordpress.com 's 'Twelve Months of Terror' project.

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #107 - 'Recon'

Aloha!

This week's episode of the podcast is rather darn special as it marks a significant anniversary! Yes, you guessed it, this episode marks us only having ten more episodes left of the entire project! Yikes, yowzer and yonkers, it's hard to believe!

But before we rush this whole damn thing, we've got 'Recon' to discuss, a Sawyer centric episode that sees our rugged antihero doing what he does best, playing playas off each other for his own filthy gain!

Did you go to science school? Did you do, like, really well? Do you like wearing a sweater vest, looking after the welfare of stunning teenagers and occasionally showing glimpses of being a sneaky manipulative bastard? Well, then you must be Dr. Ben Linus, proud resident of a make believe bizarro world where you wish yourself paralysed and invent a son who can only communicate through a series of beep and, yes, boops

It's time to go back to school!

The Marvel Vs DC movie mash-up- 'Superman and the Mole-men'


Well, it's time to kick off 'the Marvel Vs DC movie mash-up' project and what better way to do it than with the first film in the list! Yes, it's time to gaze longingly at George Reeve's hands on hip skills, not to mention his pre-cognitive abilities and his masterful moonlighting as an assistant surgeon!

Now, this commentary, as with all our commentaries, begins simultaneously with the very start of the film, so hit play on both at the same time for maximum sync-up!

Finally, given that 'Superman and the Mole-men' might not be in the possession of all that many listeners, we're happy to report that the entire 58-minute film can be found on YouTube at 'Superman and the Mole-Men' , however we've tried to make the commentary as self contained as possible, so that you shouldn't necessarily have to be watching the film to enjoy the podcast.

'Superman and the Mole-men' Commentary

We hope you guys are thrilled and chilled by our first instalment and we'll be back in a couple of weeks for our commentary for 'Batman the movie'! In the meantime, if you'd like to get involved with the project in anyway, tweet @billowl or @ChrisSykes108 and we'd be thrilled to have you on board!

But we're BACK now and ready to delve once more in the treasure trove that is Lost's final season. But is it treasure or face melting ghosts we find inside?

There'll be fights, poisoning, stabbing and most importantly, Sayid considering having a crack at his brothers wife!

After recent reports of Christian Bale being offered ownership of Finland to return for a little Brucie Bonus, old Zack Snyder has plopped out an unexpected stunner of casting with Hollywood punchline turned respected director Ben Affleck taking the role of BANTAM in the upcoming sort of sequel to 'Man of Steel'. 

A surprising choice and one that's left the Internet abuzz with plenty of good old fashioned criticism. But sack that shit off, because WHINECAST is here to give you our opinion on the matter, which studies indicate is substantially more valid than that of others! 


Enjoy!

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #104 - 'Lighthouse'

What's that in the distance? Is it a lighthouse? No, it's the dawning realisation that the pace of season 6 is slowing way down and, most alarmingly, our tickets for The Concert haven't come through the post yet! But fear not, as this episode is going to deliver us some distractions in the form of further alarming insights into the cracked mind of the man-child that is Jacob!

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #103- 'The Substitute'

Well! This week we try our hardest to get our head around the fact Locke is back in his wheelchair and more important why he thinks he can jump out of his car.

WHINECAST - 'The New Doctor'

Well, after all the rumours, the speculation, the virtual assurance that it was going to be Peter Capaldi, Doctor Who fans were shocked this evening when it was revealed that , actually, the twelfth doctor would be played by...Peter...Capaldi. But what the hell do we think of this news? Inspired casting? Horrific mistake? Press play on this audio entertainment piece and you'll have the answers flowing into your ears like oh so much honey!

Twelve Months of Terror - 'Stitches' review

Don't think you're safe 'cos it's not over! You thought you'd had enough of our addition to RJ Bayley's horror opus for the time being, but boy, you are SO wrong - as we are back with our review of the Ross Noble starring 'Stitches'. We've got an undead killer clown, we've got Lis Sladen's son, we've got tons of teenage totty- what's not to like? Well, a few things at the very least, but there's going to be shit tons of blood to attempt to drown our doubts with. Everybody happy? 'Stitches' Review

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #102 - 'What Kate Does'


What DOES Kate do? Well, she washes her hair, she follows the boys around, she raises random children. Hell, she does LOTS of things! But in this episode, we're going to find out what young Kate does when she's trapped in a weirdy beardy 'let's make everything up so it's great but also hard universe'. I'll tell you one thing that this episode taught us, that screwing over pregnant chicks is NOT what Kate does. Quite the opposite! 

Don't believe us? Well, listen in, dickhead!

Twelve Months of Terror - 'Brotherhood of the Wolf'

t's time to kick off once again with @rjbayley 's 'Twelve Months of Terror' project and with it being July, we're naturally turning to Bastille Day and the somewhat epic 'Brotherhood of the Wolf'. There's intrigue. There's terror. There's monsters. There's boobs. But is there enjoyment?

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #101 'LA X Parts 1 and 2'

Yoswer!

After all this time, all these many miles, we're finally doing it - it's time to begin the final season of the Lost Rewatch Podcast, which funnily enough corresponds with the final season of the hit television show 'Lost'.

Will we tie our arguments together? Will Ben bring dial-up back to the island? How many castaways does it take to make a Shit Sandwich? These are exactly the kind of questions you can expect answered in The Final Season!

WHINECAST - 'The World's End' review

After a six year absence from the big screen, old pals Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright and Nick Frost return this weekend with their latest collaboration - the apocalyptic, alcohol fueled 'The World's End'. Will it be third time lucky for the boys? Will they close their thematic trilogy with pride.?

We have the answers, so take a seat, 'cos we're buying!

WHINECAST - 'Pacific Rim' review

Go big, or go extinct.

So says the tag line, but DOES Pacific Rim go big? That's the question we're asking this week in our impromptu review of the Guillermo Del Toro epic. It's a film that's been generating a lot of different and strong reactions and, boy, what you will get from us in this case is DEFINITELY a strong reaction.

Advance warning to listeners- due to the heat wave currently assaulting the UK, we had to record this one with an electric fan running, which seems to have impacted quite heavily on the sound quality. Apologies for this, we hope the audio is understandable and we'll be making better plans for this in our upcoming 'The World's End' review.

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #100 - 'The Incident'

WELL, BOOMIN' NORA!

This week marks a very special event! This week, our DOUBLE LENGTH podcast commentary is focused entirely on the game-changing finale of season 5, the episode that finally brought Jacob out of the shadows, revealed his hand in our castaways lives and set up some gubbins about alternate realities that may or may not have panned out (spoiler - it didn't).

But what's MORE important is that this week marks the One Hundredth episode we have released of the Lost Rewatch Podcast! This is a pretty momentous occasion and it's hard to believe that we've actually sat down to unleash a hundred of these bad boys.

To those of you who've listened along, we offer our sincere thanks, you've made the journey so far a sheer delight! But it's not over yet! We still have season 6 left on the table, which means, as of next week, we have 16 final episodes to plop into your waiting mouths and you'll be pleased to hear we're both pretty proud of our final season.

But, now, onto 'The Incident'!

WHINECAST - Play it again, Sam

Ey-oh!

So, it's been a long time coming, but tonight we finally got two mega pieces of news regarding the next Bond film, a topic very close to the hearts of us here at All of Whine and Space. We finally have a release date (October 23rd 2015) but just as tantalisingly we have official, for real, no take backsies confirmation that Sam Mendes is returning to direct, something that virtually ensures a solid film.

But is it the right call? What can we expect from Bond 24? How long will Craig stay in the role? Will Mendes be roped into a Bond trilogy?

Hear all on these topics and more, in this week's WHINECAST!

Play it again, Sam

Hello gang!

It's time for the penultimate episode of what has been a highly tasty run of episodes for the hit television show 'Lost' - yes, the season 5 finale is on our doorstep! But before it enters, takes off its clothes and lays down on the plastic covered floor, it's time for for old Dick Alpert to take us on a journey back and forth through time as we get to enjoy the sheer pleasure that comes from knowing you're going to remain looking like a dark prince for eternity, safe in the knowledge that juicy Mid-ouise will be ravaged into the form of Old-ouise - and all on your watch!

Well, hello there, Lostie-poohs!

This week is a pretty significant moment for us at the Rewatch Podcast as 'The Variable' marks the one hundredth produced hour of the show, a knee weakening fact! But what does the one hundredth episode have in store for us? Well, a companion piece to season four's 'The Constant', we've got a range of treats for you this week - a classic bad parent storyline, a series of wigs for Faraday and a sweaty agitated man speaking persuasively to a young girl in a park - what more could you want?!?

Happy birthday, Lost!

WHINECAST - 'Much Ado About Nothing' review

Sounds like its time for one of those Team Ups, once again! In one corner, it's cult figure Josh Whendy- a rare talent to savour and then, in the other corner, little known playwright Bill Shakesman. Together, these boys are gonna take twelve days out to film the ultimate edition of 'Through the Keyhole'!

Do we like the result? Does this type of Shakesman adaptation work?

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #97 - 'Some Like It Hoth'

I like it Hoth, do YOU?

Lads and ladettes, we are back this week with a little bit of a break from all the gruesome drama of the last few episodes for something a little lighter, a litter airier and, hell, a lot rarer - a genuine Miles centric episode that aims to warm the heart, the cockles and maybe even more. Does it succeed? Find out within!

Punch it, Chewie!

'Some Like It Hoth' Commentary

WARNING- This episode may involve Miles daring Hurley to place a mayo sandwich into a corpses mouth for five seconds and then eat it, which Hurley does because he's susceptible to peer pressure, the poor bastard.

WHINECAST- 'World War Z' review

It's Z day!

Yes, it's true. The much anticipated adaptation of Max Brook's novel is slamming onto cinema screens this weekend and we at WHINECAST couldn't be more excited. Because we're massive fans of the book? Golly, no! It's because it's brought to us by director Marc Forster, responsible for the deeply flawed Bond film 'Quantum of Solace' and writer Damon Lindelof, key scribe on the deeply flawed 'Lost' and the deeply flawed 'Prometheus'.

So, are we in for a deeply flawed experience? There's only one way to find out!

WARNING - This film may feature the best recovery from a serious stomach wound since Noomi Rapace's complicated delivery in 'Prometheus'!

Twelve Months of Terror- 'The Stepfather' Review

We are returning once more to good friend and local legend @rjbayley 's horror themed opus TWELVE MONTHS OF TERROR, this week focusing on the 80s-tastic 'The Stepfather'.

Now, we're always up for a bit of TERROR, but this month's film is extremely close to our hearts, as long term fans will suspect, because it stars a young, virile and talented TERRY-OH-QUINN, the master craftsman who we simply adore due to his portrayal of Johnny Locke in the hit TV show 'Lost'. But even without OH-QUINN, this slice of eighties magicks would be a pure joy.

Lets bring some order to things!

'The Stepfather' Review

WARNING- This film may involve the authorities trying to keep a playa down.

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #96 - 'Dead is Dead'

Right Said Fred? No, playas, it's 'Dead is Dead'!

This week's episode sees a welcome return to a Ben centric episode, with us finding out all kind of juicy business about his and Widmore's past together - which naturally involves us focusing on the most important topic - hair and ageing!

WHINECAST - 'Man of Steel' review

Right then! It's time for the other main staple of the DC franchise to see if he can have another crack at a modern telling. We've got the double team of Chris Nolan and David Goyer on board, a sterling cast and the delightfully inconsistent, but always pretty, Zack Snyder.

Will we believe a man can fly? There's only one way to find out!

WARNING- This film may give an unrealistic depiction of getting jobs in a poor economy with no references

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #95 'Whatever Happened, Happened

Hey there, cheeky Pootle!

We return this week with another solid episode, which seems to be all about screwing over children! We've got Kate ditching Aaron to go on holiday, we've got Juliet fiddling about with Ben's insides and...well that's about it on the kids front, but trust me, it's a damn solid episode, one that takes us that but closer to the explosive events of the season 5 finale.

Spark up your Dharma leaf and get a-rockin'!

Aloha, my good friends!

We're back this week with a firmly Sayid centric episode, one that continues the great run that season 5 has been having. We have Sayid and Ben interacting with imprisonment, we have chickens being murdered, we have people eschewing Dharma Leaf for the more potent Dharma Acid - it's all kicking off!

WHINECAST- Doctor Who- The Fall of the Eleventh

Well, all good things just come to an end and that was never truer than tonight when we learnt that the delightful Mattie Smith has decided to depart Doctor Who for fresh pastures, making his departure during the upcoming 2013 Christmas Special.

We were fairly blown away by the news, so we decided we'd kick ourselves if we didn't get down behind the mic and have a good old chinwag about the puns, the fezzes, the jammy dodgers, the bow ties and the missed chances.

Geronimo!

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #93 - 'Namaste'

Aloha, Losties!

This week, we're back with our old friends in the Dharma Initiative and we get to see Sawyer attempt desperately to conceal an extremely transparent lie, but fair play to the PLAYA, he sure gives it a darn good try!

Season 5 continues to hit an excellent stride this week, so listen in wonder as we have relatively little to bitch about!

The Matrix Re-evaluated - 'The Matrix Revolutions'



Well, as the Oracle says, when something does a start, one day it's bound to have a finish!

Yes, Playas, the wonderful month of May is gradually coming to a close, so that means our retrospective look back at the 'Matrix' franchise is finally ending. What are our final thoughts? Does the trilogy come to a rousing conclusion, or slide out like a repulsive bowel movement? To answer this vital question, we've once again enlisted the talents of Old Pal Tom Lewis, who's going to help us put this bitch firmly in the ground.

Do me an ending!

Doctor Who - 'The Name of The Doctor'

Well gosh golly!

We seem to have reached the end of Series 7 of the revived Who and it's been a decidedly mixed bag. We've had great episodes, we've had mediocre ones, but the pressure of the series finale remains as strong as ever, if not stronger because of the need to tee an audience up for the upcoming 50th anniversary.

So, did the finale deliver? Did we get the skinny on Clara? Are we pumped for the 50th?

WHINECAST - Doctor Who: 'Nightmare in Silver'

How do, Whovians?

We're finally here with our belated review of this week's episode of Doctor Who, the Neil Gaiman penned 'Nightmare in Silver'. Of course, Gaiman's previous writing credit on the show 'The Doctor's Wife' was widely hailed as one of the best episodes ever, so can 'Silver' possibly compete? Does it even need to? Does Clara give any cheeky, knee weakening looks?

The answers lie within!

Nightmare in Silver Review

WARNING- This episode may feature some of the worst child acting this side of 'The Phantom Menace'

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #91 'The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham'

Hi there, Lost fans!

It's time for a bit of a novelty episode this week as we finally get to dive into the much anticipated antics of Johnny Locke after he leaves the island to try and organise the Oceanic Six comeback tour. But will it be a good episode? Will it satisfy our craving for information about the circumstances that lead to that bleedin' coffin from almost two seasons ago?

There's only one way to find out!

Holla holla, playas!

We're back once again to review the much anticipated continuation of the rebooted Star Trek franchise and Spoiler Spoiler, it's pretty darn good! We went into this review hoping to keep it short, but it turns out we were so passionate about the film that we just couldn't shut our goddamn traps!

So, get ready to travel to the stars, where you will see falling spaceships, flying men and stunning blondes with delightful thighs!

Star Trek Into Darkness Review

WARNING- This episode may see Benedict Cumberbatch forever renamed as Benji Cumbuns.

THE MATRIX RE-EVALUATED- 'The Animatrix' commentary

And now for something completely different!

Yes, it's truesies, after kicking off The Matrix Re-Evaluated project with our commentary for little known '99 classic 'The Matrix', we decided that any real look back at the franchise would, if it was being fair and complete, have to take into account 'The Animatrix' so we took on the task of providing commentary for the nine short films which acted as our first glimpse of the world beyond 'The Matrix', a world which was to leave an unpleasant taste in the mouth for many come the release of the sequels.

We recorded our commentary from the blu-ray release of 'The Animatrix' rather than the DVD release, meaning that, unlike the DVD release, this commentary does not include full credits for 'The Animatrix' after each short has finished, so to allow everyone to sync up their commentaries after each short, we've left a clearly indicated pause. Don't worry too much, as we explain it in the audio itself.

Boys? Let's do one.

THE MATRIX RE-EVALUATED - 'The Matrix' commentary

Ladies and gents, it's the month of May so that, of course, means it's time to kick off our moderately anticipated project designed to, on the ten year anniversary of the Matrix sequels' release, take a look back at the Matrix franchise-  to try and evaluate what it was that captured the imagination of so many back in 1999 and to try and identify the ways that the 2003 sequels managed to disappoint so many and so thoroughly. What was wrong with the sequels? What was right? Has the franchise as a whole been misjudged?

But before we get into all that 2003 murkiness, it's time to zip back to the turn of the millennium and get down and dirty discussing the film that began it all, that introduced us to the adventures of Neil, Tricia and Marcellus - let's jack into 'The Matrix'!

WHINECAST- Doctor Who: 'Hide' review

Boys and gals, what we have this week is a reassuringly enjoyable episode of the hit TV show Doctor Who and, frankly, it couldn't have come soon enough after a couple of weeks of rather underwhelming episodes.

But underwhelming is not what we have this week, instead we have spectres, crown-things, Emma Sexyface, no umbrella stand and a rather bizarre conclusion.

BOYS, lets get to it.

Hello, all and sundry!

Welcome to another edition of the hit podcast that the entire internets is talking about- no lie. This week's episode is, of course, 'The Lie' and as such, we're not going to say much about it beforehand- because how would you shift truth from fiction?

You were probably thinking we'd be having our traditional break between seasons, weren't you? You thought we'd leave you hanging, that we'd try to keep you down? Nonsense! We're diving back into the podcast with the first episode of season 5, the timey wimey 'Because You Left'.

It's the penultimate season of the show and with that, we're finally seeing the bugger set out its stall as a fully fledged sci-fi extravaganza, one with plenty of time travel thrown in to boot!

So, get your records skipping, feed the baby and film yet another one of those feckin' orientation videos- it's time for season 5!

Because You Left Commentary

WARNING- This episode may feature Jack getting over that whole addiction thing pretty swiftly

Well, bugger my spitoon and set fire to the rain- we've only gone and reached the end of season 4!

Yes, it's true, with this week's edition of the GREAT Lost Rewatch Podcast we deliver one of our world famous doublés or, as they're sometimes known, 'double bills' covering the second half of the gigantic conclusion to this game changing season.

Last week, we said we had a fair number of issues with this finale, but will they be apparent in our analysis of the second half? There's only one way to find out and that's by downloading the shit out of this week's podcast!

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #83 - 'There's No Place Like Home' Part 1

It's hard to believe it, but we've finally reached the end of season 4! It's been a hell of a journey and despite the abbreviated episode total as a result of the writer's strike we've covered a hell of a lot of ground this season. But, in the words of 'Metal Gear Solid's Liquid Snake - 'It's not over yet!'.

So, buckle your seat belts, bundle up your Dharma leaf, order your Shit Sandwich (tm), check yourself before you wreck yourself - because it's time to jump into the first part of the season four finale with 'There's No Place Like Home' Numero One!

There's No Place Like Home Part 1 Commentary

Twelve Months of Terror - 'Leprechaun'

Well, playas, it's March and that means it's time for WHINECAST to leap back into Goats in the Machine 's TWELVE MONTHS OF TERROR project. This month, we're dealing with a terror that is small in stature, but big in...terror.

So, without further flubbering, let's get down to business as we take a look back at this nineties classic, pondering such issues as tight shorts, magic little men and feckin' gold.

Boys? Let's get to it!

Leprechaun Review

WARNING- This podcast may feature us trying to determine the limits of 'brain operations'.

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #82 - 'Cabin Fever'


Buckle your safety belts, Lost fans - it's time for a little dose of CABIN FEVER. Yes, the eleventh episode of Lost Season 4 takes a delightful trip back in time as we return to a format that is now a true rarity- a flashback for a survivor of Oceanic 815. Of course, if you want an 815er to bring home the flashback bacon, then you've got to turn over the reins to old Johnny Locke who brings the pain and thunder with him like a true playa.

Of course, we've got more than Johnny Locke to deal with this week as we finally get the opportunity to get our teeth thoroughly stuck into some of Jacob's  'motivations', something that in many ways is the starting pistol for what we like to call 'Jacob's wind-up of 2007'!

So, roll up some Dharma leaf, bang on some Buddy Holly and get ready to get feverish!

Cabin Fever Commentary

WARNING- This episode may feature John Locke failing the Daz doorstep challenge

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #81 - 'Something Nice Back Home'


Welcome back, Lost inclined youths!

We've returned to the mic this week to drop a phat beat in the shape of old Jacky Shepherd having himself a genuine sick day! Will he live? Die? Who can say? The tension is so high, despite the presence of multiple flash forwards that guarantee his survival!

But forget surgery, there's nuptials on the horizon and the prospect of seeing young Shepherd manage to derail a perfectly good relationship in just a few short steps. Are you looking to shake off YOUR unwanted spouse? Then watch closely!

Something Nice Back Home Commentary

WARNING- This episode may feature Jack picking up a pair of Kate's panties and shockingly NOT sniffing them.

WHINECAST- 'Cloud Atlas'

Righto then!


We've actually had this bad boy in the bag for almost a full week, but finding a slot to deliver our thoughts on this MIND THINKER of a film has proved tricky! But here we are and it's finally time to sit down and try and work out our reaction to what has to be one of the most undeniably interesting releases of recent times.

But, the question remains, is 'Cloud Atlas' genuine poppycock? Or a subtle work of genius? Frankly, we can't quite make our mind up, but we're going to have ourselves a hell of a time trying to work it out!

Join us on a journey through time and space, where we all wear latex make up and are occasionally bizarrely compelling!

Cloud Atlas Review


WARNING- This review may feature two boys struggling to decide what the hell they think of life, the universe and everything.

Twelve Months of Terror - 'My Bloody Valentine' review

Holla holla, playas!

So, from time to time, we here at WHINECAST like to dip our toe to into projects that arouse, excite and arouse us. One of our most faithful supporters, RJ Bayley of hit film blog 'Goats in the Machine' (ha ha, wordplay!), has approached us with a project so terrifying that, upon hearing about it, we immediately shat ourselves both from the aforementioned terror and then, ultimately, anticipation.

The project in question is TWELVE MONTHS OF TERROR, a horror discussion project that lasts for an unclear amount of time. The basic dealio is that month by month throughout 2013 RJ Bayley and his lovely AND talented companion Louise Boyd will be commenting on a series of classic horror films throughout the decades, through the time honoured format of the audio commentary. After last month's installment of 'New Year's Evil' (ha, ha wordplay!), the dynamic duo have returned to discuss slasher classic 'My Bloody Valentine' and hell, we've decided to get off our arses and join 'em!

So, click below to hear WHINECAST's review of this SLASHER CLASSIC and head on over to goatsinthemachine.wordpress.com to check out RJ and Lou's excellent commentary, which fans of WHINECAST commentaries are guaranteed to enjoy!

Enough o' this jibber jabber- let's get to it!

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #80 - 'The Shape of Things to Come'


Ladies and gennleman, it's time for a very special edition of the Lost Rewatch Podcast!

Yes, unbelievably, this week is our 80th edition and boy, has it been a an undeniably epic journey in which we've felt ALL the emotions!

Appropriately enough for a birthday edition, this week's episode truly shows us the shape of things to come in Lost, with the fittingly titled Ben flashforward - 'The Shape of Things to Come'. So, wake up in Tunisia, have a sick and assault some natives- because Benny L is on the scene and that means shit is going down, down in an earlier round.

BlogalongaBond - 'Skyfall' commentary

Well, the dust has finally settled on the epic project of epicness that was BlogalongaBond. The whole world turned out for Jimmy Bond's adventures in 'Skyfall' and we couldn't be happier with the success of the film. But what's this? Rumblings of discontent? It's TRUE.

Whilst we at WHINECAST love old 'Skyfall' to bits, we also think the film has a few short comings that may be being overlooked in the glare of euphoria surrounding the film. So , there's only one thing for it. It's time for us to pony up and ride into battle bearing the BlogalongaBond banner one last time as we deliver our full length audio commentary for what many have called 'the best Bond ever'.


We're going to applaud, laugh, scowl, moan and celebrate our way through the latest Dannii Craig opus and you'd be fools not to join us!

Boys? Let's get to it.

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #79 - 'Meet Kevin Johnson'


Ahoy there, mateys!

It's time to take a trip back in time this week, with our old friend Kevin Johnson- AKA - Michael the Killer Man. Yes, it's true, it's time to see what Old Mikey got up to off the island and what the hell brought him back to being first mate on the ship of DOOM!

Will we be satisfied? Disappointed? Aroused? The options are SO many.

Boys? Let's get to it.

WHINECAST- 'A Good Day to Die Hard' review

Well well!

The vultures are circling because boy, that carcass is ripe! Yes, reviews for DIE HARD FIVE have not been overly positive and, after much consideration and a recent viewing of the film, the WHINECAST boys have decided that this negativity stems primarily from the film being almost entirely bobbins.

But how bobbins can one film be? Can a meagre 90 minutes eradicate a franchise that's been going relatively strong for several decades? The only way to find out is to take your generic, non-brand specific MP3 player and listen to the delights contained within our HOT OFF THE PRESS REVIEW of DIE HARD FIVE.

A Good Day to Die Hard Review

WARNING- This film may feature John McClane untruthfully stating his is 'on vacation' on an alarming number of occasions.

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #78 - 'Ji Yeon'


Hello Playas!

This week we're looking at the seventh episode of 'Lost' season four, the Jin/Sun centric 'Ji Yeon'. Now, fans of the 'Lost Rewatch Podcast' will be well aware that for us, Jin and Sun could hardly be called our favourite characters on 'Lost'. But will the flashforward angle of this season result in storylines that will change our minds on the subject of Jin/Sun centrics? Basically, no.

But, for once, our criticism isn't entirely levelled at the characters of Jin and Sun, but, in this case, a certain storytelling format employed for this episode that rather gets our goat up!

So, buy yourself a panda, lose it, buy another panda and then realise your storyline means nothing as we get ready to discuss the little lady known as 'Ji Yeon'.

Ji Yeon Commentary

WARNING- This episode may involve Bernard making some bold assumptions about Jin's ability to understand and converse in English.

WHINECAST- 'Hitchcock' review

The old WHINECAST boys have toddled off to the pictures yet again-  on this occasion they've been lucky enough to sneak into an advance screening of the new Hitchcock biopic, handily entitled 'Hitchcock'.

So, listeners, take a seat, light up your pipe and get ready for some hardcore discussion as we dissect the film in relation to our own experiences of 'the master of suspenders', our recent viewing of 'Psycho' and, most importantly, our extremely recent viewing of the HBO/BBC co-production 'The Girl' starring the wonderful Toby Jones as the rotund master.

Who wins between Jones and Hopkins? Which depiction is more horrifically unsettling? Would we rather bed Sienna Miller or Scarlett JoJo? All these questions AND more are answered within!

Hitchcock Review

WARNING- This podcast may feature us expressing our extreme admiration for Ed Gein, who we both agree 'really went for it'.

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #77 - 'The Other Woman'


Au revoir, Losties!

We're back this week with our commentary for the Juliette-centric 'The Other Woman'. Now, as we all know, old Jules is usually a banker when it comes to a good centric, however this week we've been presented with what may surprise fans as one of our least favourite episodes of the show ever!

Why do we view this seemingly innocuous episode with such contempt? Well, boys and gals, you'll have to listen to find out, but let's just say it has a little to do with Benny Linus using his chemistry set to try and brew up a love potion!

Boys? Let's get to it!

The Other Woman Commentary

WARNING- This episode may mark the emergence of Ben's love, some would say obsession, for dial-up internet access.

WHINECAST- 'Lincoln'

Holla holla holla, Playas!

It's time for WHINECAST to return with our review of Stevie Spielberg's latest, an inaccurate biopic of Abe Lincoln which sadly ignores both his predisposition for being a slayer of the vampyres and also his intermittent adventures through time with Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves.

But, never mind, as the film which is served up is certainly a treat for discussion and one which we actually have a genuine disagreement about, where we almost come to blows.

So, grow a funny beard, stick on your stovepipe hat and start making sweeping decisions against the wishes of the people you represent, it's time to get down and dirty with Stinkin' Lincoln!

Lincoln Review

WARNING-  This review may feature a surprisingly absence of talk about Daniel Day-Lewis's awesome face!

WHINECAST- 'Zero Dark Thirty'

It's time for WHINECAST to head to the movies once again and this week it's to see the critically acclaimed, controversy baiting ZERO DARK THIRTY, directed by young Kathy Bigelow.

So, are we wrapped up in the investigation against poor old Bin Laden? Are we thrilled, chilled and terrified as his wherabouts are extracted via torture? Are we able to remember what Jessica Chastain's boobs were like in 'Lawless'?

All these questions AND more will be answered in our brand new WHINECAST!

Boys? Let's get to it.


Zero Dark Thirty Review

WARNING- This review may involve us accidentally endorsing torture, shortly before Chris's brain gives out and he proceeds to make a series of half assed statements that make him seem like the class dunce.

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #76 - 'The Constant'

Boys and gals, it's time for the Lost Rewatch Podcast to return with one of the killer episodes of season 4 and that one that, to this day, leaves plenty of tantalising morsels to discuss/get pissed off by. So, go mental in a chopper, leave the tap running and make a expensive international call, it's time to make the Lost Rewatch Podcast your constant!


WARNING- This episode may feature some of that Timey Wimey business that leaves your brain dribbling out of your nose.

WHINECAST- 'Les Miserables' review

Hello there, Film fans!

Well, last week, with old 'Django' we did suggest we might do this - and indeed we have :a full review for Tom Hooper's adaptation of 'Les Miserables'! We wanted to take ourselves out of our comfort zone a bit with this review, to try and get our thoughts on a film that we might not traditionally associate with the WHINECAST analysis and boy, we had a rootin' tootin' good time!

So, end your slavery, become the mayor, go on the run and then eventually die as we get ready to feel miserable!

Les Miserables Review

WARNING- This review may feature some pathetically incorrect pronunciations of character names.

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #75 - 'Eggtown'


Okay then, playas, it's time to dive back in with this week's edition of the Lost Rewatch Podcast!

So, get ready to take the stand and lie through your teeth as we pay a visit to 'Eggtown'!

WHINECAST- 'Django Unchained'

Hello there, film fans!

It's time for one of the releases of the year that the two of us have been most eagerly anticipating- the new production from famed writer/directior Quentin Travers. Yes, that's right, it's time to get to grips with QT's western epic 'Django Unchained'.

Much like the film, it's a lengthy one for us this time, but that's because we just can't seem to decide exactly how we feel about the latest entry in the QT canon.

So,  it's time to turns on your masters, practice your German and get ready to blow up the plantation!

Boys? Let's get to it

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #74 - 'The Economist'


Hola, Losties!

We're back this week with one of the true gems of Lost season 4, the Sayid centric 'The Economist'. However, as great as this episode is, it does leave us with a few puzzling questions about how the flash forward fits into the shoW as it eventually develops and boy, you can bet your bottom dollar that we discuss 'dem concerns to the proper max!

So, get out your hair straighteners, attach your silencer and get ready to flirt with an exotic foreigner-because shit is about to get truly real!

The Economist Commentary

WARNING- This episode may feature Sayid making sweet love to a woman, only to have her die moments later...AGAIN.

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #73 'Confirmed Dead'


Well then! No sooner have we got used to these new fangled flash forwards, those pesky Lost producers throw a bloomin' flashback in our faces! But fear not, as this mother is multi centric and introduces us to a gang that we know and love, those delightful Freighter Folk (TM)

WHINECAST- 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' review

We're as surprised as you are that we've got to this stage, but it's true, we've decided to finally do a review of Philip Jackson's newest cinematic endeavour- 'The Hobbit Number One'.

So, Listeners, strap yourself in for a wild ride as we discuss three part adaptations, 48 frames-per-second, three dimensions and a bunch of dwarves which some would uncharitably describe as being 'as thick as pigshit'.
