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.
