Simon Oxlade, Mat Purvis and Claire Dukes are film fans, not critics. Armed with an annual cinema pass they spend their own money and then meet up in the pub to review what they have seen.

Full of warm, witty banter, and sometimes gloriously profane, these shows are like sitting in a pub with your mates complaining about movies. While they may know what an F-stop is, and what the heck a gaffer does, the team are honest film fans who reflect the opinions of the average cinema goer with their local multiplex at the end of their street.
You won't get a score, but you will get an honest assessment of what a handful of average Joes think of the flick and is it worth your money.

Each show usually consists of some news, some gossip, if anyone of note has died recently there's a respectful obituary before the three or four reviews are delivered. In between there are insults, jokes, beer and smiles.

We're not the best criticism podcast out there, but we're probably the warmest.
38 Episodes
Reviews of Williams, Atomic Blonde, The Hitman's Bodyguard and The Dark Tower The local podcast with most of its listeners in the USA returns, with a working audio file this time (sorry, so sorry) and a load of goodies for your lucky fans. News and gossip to begin with, mostly DCEU focussed with discussions of The Batman and the next Wonder Woman (though not about Patty Jenkins giving a bitch-slap to James Cameron). A swift run through those notable film stars who have passed on since we were last on air. And one who hasn't (#Rourkewatch). Simon has a review of family documentary Williams which is less about the legendary F1 team, and more about the family behind the name. Mat reviews the Charlize Theron 90s set Euro-action flick Atomic Blonde, also starring James McAvoy. More Euro-carnage as Simon reviews Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson in The Hitman's Bodyguard, which also stars a foul-mouthed Salma Hayek. Final review this week sees Mat cast his eye over Idris Elba and Matthew McConnaughey in the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King's legendary series of novels, The Dark Tower.
It's the August Bank Holiday, and it's blazing hot, so Mat and Simon retire to the pub to discuss some of the latest releases. Simon has a review of Formula One documentary Williams, telling the story of the last remaining F1 team with the founder's name over the door. Mat takes over to discuss the Charlize Theron retro action flick Atomic Blonde. Back to Simon for the Ryan Reynolds / Samuel L. Jackson action comedy The Hitman's Bodyguard, and finally Mat has a review  Idris Elba & Matthew McConaughey's attempt to take on Steve King's epic fantasy The Dark Tower. We have some more DCEU news and, sadly, a lot of celebrities to remember.
Mat and Simon, complete with furry audience member, take another full throttle dive through the world of film. This time they discuss Disney's streaming service and the affect on Netflix, the next movie from the creator of The Thick of It, Veep and In The Loop; Armando Iannucci. We take a look back at the careers of Martin Landau, Jeanne Moreau and the great Sam Shepherd. Reviews this week are Netflix documentary Icarus, low budget race relations comedy drama The Big Sick and Luc Besson's bonkers return to grand space opera Valerian and the City of a thousand planets.
Admit One Movies, Wiltshire's premier pub-based movie podcast returns with reviews of Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk and Despicable Me 3, as well as a look at the glut of trailers from Comicon including Blade Runner 2049, Thor Ragnarok, Justice League and the oddity that is Bright. We also look back at the lives of George A Romero and John Heard, sort of review War for the Planet of the Apes by basing our review on the other two films that Simon has finally seen and put our meagre support fully behind Jodie Whittaker as Doctor Who.
Admit One turns One! With reviews of Tom Cruise's The Mummy, Tom Holland's Spiderman:Homecoming, Michael Bay's latest robot stomp-fest Transformers: The Last Knight, and Edgar Wright's car chase opus Baby Driver. Plus News, our memories of Barry Norman and some of the usual nonsense all recorded from a pub in Swindon! If you like us, do us a favour and go to ITunes and give us a review. Thanks!
Garrgh me harties as the good ship admitone sets sail with Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge. We stay on the beach with a review of Dwayne Johnson and Zac Ephron's Baywatch, examine the curious Colossal with Anne Hathaway and heap yet more praise on Gal Gadot and Chris Pine in the really rather splendid Wonder Woman. All this plus a splat of news, and a look back at the career of James Bond start, and legendary smoothie, Sir Roger Moore.
Descend into myth and legend as Simon and Mat review Guy Ritchie's  King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Ridley Scott's Alien:Covenant. There's the usual news, comment and will Michael Mann's Manhunter make it onto the DVD Shelf of truth and justice? Download and find out.
After a lengthy hiatus, Admit One return with a lot of news, lots of trailers, and reviews of Sleepless with Jaime Foxx and Michelle Monaghan, and Marvel's latest, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2

So the boys are looking at a plethora of trailers including Justice League, Baby Driver, Transformers (again) and some little space movie the internet is excited about.

Reviews of Their Finest, Unforgettable, The Belko Experiment and Fast and the Furious 8.
Eeek! Michael Bay has some terrible news. Don't worry though as Simon and Mat look at the latest Mummy trailer, discuss some casting rumours, maybe a Mr. Wheedon is thinking about Batgirl while revving up for reviews of controversial manga adaptation Ghost in the Shell and Ben Wheatley's seventies gunpocalypse Free Fire.
We're back with our 30th Episode! Wow, who'd have thought this local movie podcast would have made it that far! The boys have been away for a while, but they're back with a reboot. Discussing Nasty Women, the future of The Matrix, Barbie, Dumbo, Spiderman:Homecoming, and Escape from New York the boys rattle though the news, swiftly add Big Trouble in Little China to the DVD shelf then charge into reviews of Kong:Skull Island, Power Rangers and Get Out. Business as usual then...
  Oscars, eh. There's no way they'll spanner that one up. Hey ho, Simon and Mat take a very brief look at Hollywood's starriest night out, run though as disappointing lack of news as they discuss The Batman, Star Trek: Discovery, Bad Boys for life, and the as yet untitled Han Solo Anthology movie. Four reviews for you this week as the boys look at Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg's Boston Marathon bombing drama, Patriots Day; coming of age drama and Best Picture Oscar winner Moonlight; inspiring historical race drama Hidden Figures; and superhero finale Logan with Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman.

It's a coming of age as AdmitOne turns 25 episodes young. The boys discuss some Han Solo spin off news, a look at the Golden Globes and a bizarre review of a film neither of them have seen, Collateral Beauty.

We've only been going six months, but sod it, let's review the year! The 2016 Movie Christmas dinner is served. A yummy roast potato is Mat's review of Office Christmas Party with Jennifer Anniston and Jason Bateman. The stuffing balls are Simon's spin through the many, many celebrity deaths of 2017 (but not Kirk Douglas). The boys tear through which films you really should be watching on TV this Christmas to provide you with some delicious carrots and parsnips, then there's a moist golden delicious slice of turkey as the boys choose their top three films of the year and a spoonful of sprouts as they also choose their three worst.... This Christmas special should have been released next week, but then we realised we screwed up the christmas films list. Hey ho! Thanks for listening to us for the past six months. You are all quite awesome. Happy Christmas!!!     Audition Template: 1 Mono Host track (with Speech Volume Leveler), 1 Mono Interview track (with Speech Volume Leveler), 1 Stereo Sound FX with effects, 1 Stereo Music Bed track. 44.1k, 16 bit, Stereo Master.

Twas the week before Christmas ... and Simon and Mat are back in the pub doing what they do moderately well with a bumper edition of Admit One Movies packed with comment and attitude.

Reviews of Sully, Moana and Allied round out a very full show.
