Podcast Episode 8: Into The Night, Dave, The Half of It, The Skywalker Legacy, Never Rarely Sometimes Always

the Block Busters episode 8

In todays episode we dive head on ‘Into the Night’ in a Netflix European TV series, one of us challenges Deve Burr aka Little Dicky aka ‘Dave’ for a helm of the best rapper in the world, and we discover yet again that love is little bit complicated in a Netflix teenage comedy ’The Half of It’ directed by Alice Wu. The force is with us when we review ‘The Skywalker Legacy’, that turns out to be much better film than the movie it depicts (yes, we mean ’The Rise of Skywalker’). And finally, we explore “joys” of living in rural Pennsylvania in exquisite movie ‘Never Rarely Sometimes Always’ directed by Eliza Hittman. It’s a pretty fun episode, that gets dark towards the end (literally).

#26: Mangrove, The Crown, Mandalorian Season 2 (Episodes 3 & 4) The Block Busters Podcast

To binge or not to binge – this is the question! We try to answer this when discussing ‘The Crown’, ‘Mandalorian’ and other TV shows we’ve been watching over the year.We review ‘Mangrove’, first of five Steve McQueen’s movies (or episodes?) that is a part of the ‘Small Axe’ anthology series. And we continue to discuss series 2 of ‘Mandalorian’, that’s getting better and better.Apart from that, as always, we have a lot of news, film recommendations and the usual nonsense that somehow slips into the episode. 00:00 It's Beginning to Sound a Lot Like Christmas News:11:40 ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ trailer reaction 18:49 ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ release date for cinemas and HBO Max 22:50 ‘Wandavision’ premiere date 26:02 Disney considering releasing more movies on Disney+ 30:58 Who’s replacing Johnny Depp in ‘Fantastic Beasts’ franchise? 33:30 ‘The Last of Us’ ordered to series by HBO 35:15 Spike Lee will make a musical about Viagra!  What Have We’ve Been Watching:Conor:36:50 Coca-Cola Christmas Commercial37:35 ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ and ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ (in 4K and Dolby Vision)Rado:41:45 ‘National Lampoon’s Vacation’ (Netflix)44:28 ‘Deep Impact’ (Netflix)48:04 ‘The Great British Bake Off’ (Channel 4)50:30 ’The Crown’ (Netflix) We recommend:‘Parasite’ (Amazon Prime) and how visual effects are used in the movie  Reviews:1:06:18 ‘Mangrove’ (‘Small Axe’ miniseries, BBC)1:26:20 ‘Mandalorian’ Season 2, episodes 3 and 4 (Disney+) Thank you for listening.
