Episode 88: Hercules

Hercules - Silver Screen SnobsCan you smell what the Demi-god is cooking? Sorry, that’s awful, let me start again. Dwayne Johnson steps up to the role he was possibly sculpted from stone to play in Brett Ratner’s Hercules. Bizarrely, not even the first Hercules movie we’ve reviewed on the show. We check out Jason Bateman comedy Bad Words and see what’s happening with comic book movies (for a change).

Episode 87: Snowpiercer

Snowpiercer - Silver Screen SnobsSci-fi action film Snowpiercer has arrived to deliver enough high-concept theatrics to last us at least until the next post-apocalyptic class-war-on-a-train-around-the-world movie hits our shores. Could be a while. We also discuss Coppola’s 70′s masterpieces and have that age-old debate: is The Godfather Part II better than Part I? And is The Godfather Part III the abomination everyone says it is?

Episode 85: Calvary, Tim’s Vermeer

Calvary - Silver Screen SnobsDirector John Michael McDonagh is back in full form with another jet-black comedy/drama, Calvary, his second collaboration with Brendan Gleeson after The Guard. We review it in both spoilery and non-spoilery segments but not before discussing Tim’s Vermeer in which a guy who can’t paint tries to paint. And does it really damn well. Two new releases not enough? Well, we also chuck in a debate about The Brothers Bloom and another hefty news segment.
