You may not realise it, but Matt is hosting the podcast this time around. He got so excited, he forgot to mention it to you lovely people, but we are back again with a new selection of news, games and what we’ve been doing. As well as a BRAND NEW section. Intrigued? Listen in to find out more...
Matt is still watching Dexter and Ray Donovan, he’s also been playing Saints Row IV which he reviewed for us here.
Will has been busy packing everything up to move, as a result he’s been playing with lightsabres and coming up with new ideas for sections of the podcast. He’s also been watching more of The Mentalist.
Graham has been playing Saints Row IV and Golden Sun: Dark Dawn for the DS, the sequel to a series on the Gameboy Advance. He prefers the first two games.
No news theme today as Matt deemed Saints Row IV ‘newsworthy’. Instead here’s a funny picture of Ben Affleck as Batman.
We are also thrilled to hear that Bryan Cranston is rumoured to be playing Lex Luthor in the sequel. UPDATE: since recording, Bryan Cranston has said that he is not playing Lex Luthor, though no one else has been put forward (so there’s still hope, internet!)
Now we come to the moment you’ve all been waiting for - the announcement of our new section. Each show, we are going to pick three films from 1001 Films to See Before you Die (what a cherry title) we then have to watch them before the next show and give our opinions on them. Hilarity ensues when Matt confesses that he doesn’t like any film before the 1980s (a truly defining time for all cultures, when no one cared about fashion, the mullet was cool and Austrian bodybuilders were actually robots from the future trying to kill a random kid...simpler times) the films we have to watch this week are:
Artists and Models (1955)
Monsoon Wedding (2001)
Dirty Harry (1971)
This actually means that Matt doesn’t like Dirty Harry! We’ll ask him if he feels lucky about the next lot of films.
Finally we get to the games. Will gives us the answer to his quote which was from Blues Brothers (did you get it?) and Matt gives us the following quote:
"For a few rupees a day I have employed the services of a young man who has been my guide in pleasure as well as travel. Avringa. There is something very exotic about him. He could be a boy but like many of them, in certain lights he looks just like a little girl. He is a real minx who knows exactly what he is doing to me... Oh, wrong page."
We then move on to the Elevator Pitch. This week it’s a fraught battle of wits, plagiarism and lengthy discussions on the sexual organs of Mary Magdalene. The final scores are below:
Will: Jim Carrey - Gary Busey
Graham: Seth McFarlane - Brian Blessed
Matt: Tina Fey - Nicholas Lyndhurst
Will and I also introduce a bit of a bet wherein if we don’t link our two actors in a certain amount number of moves or fewer, we lose a point on the Elevator Pitch. Matt was too chicken to try.
That’s it for this episode, we’ll see you again in two weeks with a very special surprise.
