Podcast Episode 11: Cold War vs. Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers

This is our special episode, where we decided to choose a film to watch for one another. A film that would reflect our personalities and the type of entertainment we enjoy. Rado asked Conor to watch Pawel Pawlikowski’s Oscar nominated ‘Cold War’. Conor asked Rado to watch middle part of Peter Jackson’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy – ‘The Two Towers’. Our reaction is more than surprising, so please check it out!

Both films are available on Amazon Prime with your subscription (if you have one).

Apart from that, we have some news about next months cinema releases, Conor raves about some minor game on Playstation, and the ghost (most likely of one of the British monarchs) knocks the poster off his wall.

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.
