Rob & Rob also pour a tidal wave of indifference on the new Pirates of the Caribbean trailer (shitter me timbres) and Rob D explains why the live action Ghost in the Shell could be anime-zing.

Mid-Year Movie Rundown – The Electric Shadows Podcast

We’re almost at the end of June, so what better time to take stock of 2016 in film. And forgive us for saying so, but we believe this is a bumper year for movies. The Witch, Creed, The Hateful Eight, Room, Spotlight, The Big Short, Captain America: Civil War, Green Room, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Bone Tomahawk, When Marnie Was There. A good Top 10 of the year could be made from the first 6 months.

So, join Rob Daniel & Rob Wallis as the go boldly through The Good, The Bad and The Middling of 2016 so far.  And note this was recorded before the tragic death of Anton Yelchin, which is why our Green Room discussion refers to him in the present tense. RIP Anton.

Batman-v-Superman---Podcast-lead-image
Episode 3 of The Electric Shadows Podcast sees Rob Wallis and myself look at the long-awaited Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Or rather we have a mini-group therapy session to deal with the visual, aural and plot incoherence of visionary director Zack Snyder’s latest masterwork… And make suggestions on how it could be improved. And make a number of scatology based comments on its artistic shortcomings…
