'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.

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

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!
