With another week we bring you another bunch of streamer reviews. Variety is the order of the day here, with Netflix awards hopeful drama 'Pieces Of A Woman', by the numbers horror 'The Rental' and Covid inspired 'Songbird'.We also have the first instalment of new segment 'WandaWatch' and your regular round up of news stories from the last two weeks.
Ladies and Gentlemen we're returning one last time the shitshow that was 2020 for a final look at some of the films we didn't cover too much on the awards episode. We highlight a few hidden gems and films we maybe judged too harshly on initial release. Check out the films we cover on this one as we felt they were worth a rewatch and should be widely available for you all now.
Our first news and reviews of 2021 acts as a roundup of the last stuff we saw in 2020 during the festive period. With reviews of Pixar's latest 'Soul', big budget superhero sequel 'Wonder Woman 1984', Netflix Oscar hopeful 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom', Irish animation 'Wolfwalkers' and George Clooney's new film 'The Midnight Sky'.
It's finally here! We see off the year in our usual style with the Dinosaur Man awards, joined by Paul to dish out all the biggest gongs. We discuss animated hedgehogs, beloved TV hosts and blockbuster spy action films in our wrap up of the last year in film.Join us in saying goodbye to the strangest year in living memory right here and now.
Since it's been a busy time for both news and new releases we thought we'd split them up for the next couple of episodes. This week we tackle the news of Warner Bros releasing their entire 2021 slate simultaneously theatrically and on HBO Max in a move which has seen uproar from some filmmakers and guilds. We also go through the announcements made at the Disney Investor Day relating to the future of their tentpole franchises and animation divisions including a whole bunch of Disney+ series and movies, Star Wars news and the next stage of the Marvel project.
In another festive episode we look at three new Netflix Christmas films and try to scientifically work out which of them is the most Christmassy of all. It's a tough battle and we had to sit through a lot of holiday cheer but we did it. Our contenders are 'Dolly Parton's Christmas on the Square', 'Operation Christmas Drop' and 'Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey'. Are they any good? Who comes out on top? Who will be crowned the monarch of merriment? Find out here!
We begin Dinosaur Man Does December with this festive double bill. We watched both films in The Princess Switch series, and boy are they films with some big problems. We discuss the hunkiness of leads, the insanity of how fictional countries work of a GDP level, whether this is Vanessa Hudgens' Oscar moment and who the mysterious Christmas man actually is. Have you watched these films? Were you thinking of watching them? We would recommend you skip. But hey, it's your life, live it. 
Slow news week but thankfully we make up for that with a bunch of hot and fresh reviews! Three brand new releases in Holiday romcom 'Happiest Season', heartfelt Amazon drama 'Uncle Frank' and Netflix awards hopeful 'Hillbilly Elegy'. All this alongside crime thriller 'Arkansas'. 
We start with the festive cheer a little early here at Dinosaur Man HQ with a review of festive comedy series 'Dash & Lily' which is streaming now on Netflix, we also talk about World War II vampire movie 'Blood Vessel' and catch up on 'The Personal History of David Copperfield' which was released at the beginning of the year. We also talk all this weeks news stories, Wonder Woman 1984, Black Panther 2 and Channing Tatum starring in a monster movie for Universal.
Slow reviews week this week but the news is so jam packed we don't even manage to get through it all, so you're still getting value for money don't worry.  Don't even think about asking for a refund from your favourite podcast platform. Reviews this week are of death row based drama 'Clemency' in which Alfre Woodard gives the performance of a lifetime, as well as Australian sketch comedy in the form of 'Aunty Donna's Big Ol' House of Fun' which is available on Netflix now. 
Back to reviews this week with four hot recent releases. Netflix bring us Remi Weekes 'His House' and Ben Wheatley's adaptation of 'Rebecca', Shudder offers up 'Scare Me' and Robert Zemeckis is the latest director to adapt Roald Dahl's work with his version of 'The Witches' which is available to rent now.
A very spooky greeting to you boos and ghouls! For the final episode of Shock-tober 2020 we're doing a very special head to head to head battle of some titanic horror franchises. Alex has made Andy watch the worst mainline entries in three of the most iconic series of horror 'Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare', 'Halloween: Resurrection' and 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation'. Andy's task is to rate each of these franchise ending movies in a number of categories to establish which is the king of all terrible installments. 
Are we preparing for prom? Because we've got lots of streamers this week! In another jam packed episode we talk about Jared Leto returning to DC, the cost of Bond to streaming services and maybe the most 2020 of all directorial appointments. Releases this week are of Aaron Sorkin's Netflix release 'The Trial of the Chicago 7', surprise sequel 'Borat Subsequent Moviefilm', horror anthology 'The Mortuary Collection' and Blumhouse nonsense 'Black Box'.
In an episode as stuffed as a Christmas goose we discuss new releases and news as normal as well as playing a fun game that you can participate in at home. We bring you reviews of Rose Glass' terrifying religious horror 'Saint Maud', upcoming Brandon Cronenberg sci fi thriller 'Possessor', Netflix gothic horror series 'The Haunting of Bly Manor', werewolf horror-comedy 'The Wolf of Snow Hollow', British drama 'Rocks' and long awaited comedy sequel 'Bill & Ted Face the Music'.
Another week, another episode! And what a packed week it is, lots of new releases for streaming services and upcoming cinematic releases. 'Relic' is a terrifying debut feature from Natalie Erika James, 'Hubie Halloween' is the latest Adam Sandler vehicle from Netflix and 'The Lie' is a hot mess of a film from Blumhouse and Amazon.
A couple of streaming releases catch our attention this week, both available on Netflix right now.We also discuss the week in trailers and news stories both big and small. Including Jamie Foxx, Cineworld cinemas and Zendaya starring in a biopic.
Back to regular reviews after last weeks diversion into nonsense. Streaming releases and digital releases abound with 'Enola Holmes' from Netflix, 'Spiral' which is available on Shudder, unconventional biopic 'Tesla' and creaky horror attempt 'The Turning'.
No reviews or news this week, life got in the way. So here instead is this dose of hot waffle. We discuss injuries, getting older, Limp Bizkit and party food. Enjoy! Normal service resumes next week.
It's been a slow week for new releases but we have our reviews of Disney's latest live-action adaptation 'Mulan' and Netflix horror-comedy sequel 'The Babysitter: Killer Queen'. Both of these films are now available for home consumption on streaming services.
