BTTF#011 – Straight Outta Compton, Far From The Madding Crowd, Weird Science

Welcome to the eleventh main podcast episode which contains the usual mix of new and old.

First up was F Gary Gray’s biopic of the hip-hop band NWA, Straight Outta Compton. Much to everyone’s surprise, Robert was the one who pushed for this to be reviewed so led out the reviews. Rumour has it there may be a rap element to the review.

The home release for the month is Thomas Vinterberg’s new adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s classic novel, Far From The Madding Crowd. Would the beautiful scenery overpower the quality of the story?

The final film for this episode is the classic comedy, Weird Science. Featuring the crush of many a teenager from the eighties, Kelly Le Brock, would this film still be as funny as it seemed back then?

The next podcast will be in our Foundation Film string of extras and will be the classic Steven Spielberg movie, Jaws, which is fast approaching its 40th anniversary. We are also hoping to be able to put together a quick review of the new adaptation of Macbeth which has been released to some very good reviews and stars Michael Fassbender. Our Next main podcast will feature the cinema release Sicario, starring Benicio del Toro, Emily Blunt and Josh Brolin. The podcast will also feature two classic movies, Halloween and The man Who Would Be King.

ACT#001 – Richard Attenborough

This is the first episode in a new series of podcast extras looking at acting greats.  Richard Attenborough takes centre stage for this episode and, with a film career spanning over seventy years, including 78 credits as an actor, 12 credits as a director and 13 credits as a producer, he was the ideal candidate to be first in the spotlight.

Marc nominated Richard Attenborough for this first episode and handed out a film each to be viewed along individually along with one title for the whole group to view.  The films for this episode were:

Michael Eight O’Clock Walk
Marc The Man Upstairs
Robert The League of Gentlemen
Paul 10 Rillington Place
Group Brighton Rock

The next main podcast is due to be recorded next week and will feature Straight Outta Compton as the main release, the home release is Far From The Madding Crowd and the classic movie is Weird Science.  The next podcast extra due to be recorded is the second episode of the foundation film series and will be a celebration of Jaws, which is in its 40th anniversary year.

BTTF#010 – Ant-Man, Still Alice and Airplane

Welcome to Episode 10 of the main podcast! First film up was Marvel Studios latest release, Ant-Man, whose main character is a new addition to the cinematic universe. Starring Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lily amongst others, would this be more of the usual fare from Marvel or would it have more in common with Guardians of the Galaxy?

Next up was the home release, Still Alice. Or Still Alive as Robert mistakenly called it in the introduction. Was it a worthy vehicle to hold an Oscar-winning performance from Julianne Moore?

The final film was the 35 year-old comedy classic, Airplane. Would the film still stand-up after all that time or would it have dated terribly?

The films chosen for the next podcast are the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton, the home release will be Far From the Madding Crowd and the classic film is another comedy, Weird Science.

Test Podcast: Robocop (Remake) Review

This was our first test piece that was first published on our original site, backtothefeature.podbean.com.

By way of a test of the iPad’s podcast recording abilities, Robert and Paul give the recent remake of Robocop a quick going over.

Please do not judge us too harshly, we just needed to test the initial recording and podcast upload processes.
What this piece lacked in length, it more than made up for with strength of feeling!
