Podcast Episode 9: We Are One Global Film Festival, Homecoming, Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich, Monos, Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian and a lot of news

We sat down to talk about movies, but we couldn’t start different than commenting on the crazy and sad world we all live in right now.

There was so much film and TV news to talk about, that we lost the track of time. We also managed to talk briefly about what have we’ve been watching and when it came to full reviews, we had another hour of those.

#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.
