Atomic Blonde vs Shin Godzilla – The Electric Shadows Podcast

In episode 29 of The Electric Shadows Podcast, Robs Daniel & Wallis explain why Atomic Blonde ultimately fails to detonate and why you should check out the monstrously fun Shin Godzilla.

Time is also made for Rob Wallis to outline again to Rob Daniel why he really doesn’t need to bother seeing Valerian and they both discuss why a gay love scene in the next James Bond would be a good thing.

Jodie Whittaker is Doctor Who – The Electric Shadows Podcast

Jodie Whittaker is the 13th Doctor Who

Episode 28 of The Electric Shadows Podcast is a special edition as Robs Daniel & Wallis dive into the small screen for a Doctor Who discussion. Chiefly about the casting of Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor Who, the first time a woman will have played the beloved character.

The two Robs give their take on why something this radical had to happen, why it is bizarre this is seen as radical at all, and the depressingly inevitable internet backlash against the decision.

In a typically all-encompassing chat, they expand the debate to childhood recollections of Doctor Who and Star Wars casting decisions. Doctor Who expert Rob Wallis provides the knowledge, Rob Daniel is the companion (probably Adric or K-9).

And, we know, we’re late to the party on this one...

Wonder Woman Vs The Mummy – The Electric Shadows Podcast

In ep 24 Rob Daniel & Rob Wallis take a flying visit to the Caribbean for brief opinions on Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge (or Dead Men Tell No Tales dependent on which part of the world you’re being forced to watch the film). Don’t worry, they don’t miss the opportunity to give Johnny Depp a figurative shoe-ing.

Then our intrepid podcasters say, “Don’t show me The Mummy!” Purging their rage and confusion over Tom Cruise’s bizarre vanity vehicle, they keep it tight where the film itself unravelled. They desperately search for something positive to say about the movie, finally plumping for the fact it doesn’t endorse the policies of Donald Trump. Although it comes close…

In need of cinematic succour, they bask in the awesome glow of Wonder Woman...

Fast & Furious 8 – The Electric Shadows Podcast

Episode 22 of The Electric Shadows Podcast sees Rob Daniel & Rob Wallis revving their engines as they ironically mosey through a discussion of Fast & Furious 8, and the surprisingly robust franchise as a whole.

The key’s in the ignition, we’ve got a full canister of NOS… wanna take a ride?

Ghost in the Shell – The Electric Shadows Podcast

Episode 21 of The Electric Shadows Podcast sees Rob Daniel & Rob Wallis tackling the controversial live action remake of Ghost in the Shell. The two review the film’s merits and flaws, before discussing the whitewashing scandal surrounding the film and the way it is addressed within the plot. Could this be the first podcast in which our intrepid podcasters significantly disagree?  You’ll have to listen on… although you can skip to 1:01:30 to hear our (differing) opinions on the controversy this film has attracted.

Logan – The Electric Shadows Podcast

In episode 19 of The Electric Shadows Podcast, Rob Daniel & Rob Wallis get all X-cited about Logan, Hugh Jackman’s swansong to the X-Men franchise. And spoiler alert, this Wolverine can really cut it in a film that boasts amazing action, genuine emotion and a chilling vision of where Donald Trump’s America is heading. 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.

2016 – Rewind And Re-View

2016. We’ll not dwell on what an awful year it was. Suffice to say there was a lot happening in the movie world, some of it bad, some of it rather wonderful. Here is Electric Shadows’ take on the year in film.

As is customary, we’ll begin with…


WORST FILM OF THE YEAR – Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman-v-Superman---Podcast-lead-image

OfAllTheFilmSites.com editor Rob Wallis and myself begun The Electric Shadows’ podcast this year. For said podcast we have spent approximately 12 hours watching or discussing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. “Visionary” director Zack Snyder’s superhero magnus stinkus is mean-spirited, miserable, ugly, incoherent and fundamentally misunderstands its two titular heroes...
