Description

Do you like films? Do you like debating whether a film is a cinematic triumph, or if it’s a big hot mess? Well, we’ve got a just the podcast for you. We aim to settle those raging debates once and for all, as we put Films on Trial
We’re five lads from Liverpool and each week we will act as judge, prosecution, defence and witness, as we recreate a courtroom scenario, and decide whether a much loved (or hated) film should end up on the Hit List or not. There are also regular sections on news, trailer/poster of the week, film trivia and quizzes. Plus banter, terrible impressions, musical interludes, and lots of debating.

Bone Alone

Bone Alone

2020-01-1400:36:14

Bone Alone is on trial! Is it delicious calcium based chew with a wonderful marrow filled core or is it just the scraps from the table with a few dregs of somebody elses wonderful meal still attached? Not a delightful image for comparison this week but then it is the middle of January and we're allowed to be a little more negative than usual. :S Bone Alone is not a humourously titiled porn parody it is in fact an homage to the Christmas Classic Home Alone but with dogs. Obviously this was Gav's Christmas film pick. The rest of the episode is filled with: * the usual banter; * witty and sarcastic one liners; * not so witty one-liners; * even less witty out and out bullying; * some xylophone playing; * a quiz; and * plenty of other exciting things to pleasure your listening holes. This episode should have come out back in December, but we struggled to get together to record in the last week of December because we all underestimate just how incredibly difficult it can be to fit everything in between Christmas and New Year. Plus, when it's such a huge film like Bone Alone, you really don't want to just go through the motions. We apologise from the bottom of our dog bowls about the irregular programming over the holiday period and we promise to be more organised in the future.. ;) As ever many many thanks to everyone who hehlps us create the podcast particularly our wonderful graphic artist Winston Tsang (IG: @the_quirks) (even though we didn't send him anything to make for this one... he deserved a week off) www.filmsontrial.co.uk
Scrooged

Scrooged

2020-01-0301:14:501

On the fourth week of Christmas Films on Trial forgot to release an episode... because they were too busy getting in the festive spirit. So, better late than never: Scrooged is on trial this week. Will this put a little love in your heart? or will just the thought it give you a heart attack? I know, I know not my greatest intro blurb but it's January and I'm feeling the full effects of a Christmas of excess. Perhaps a visit by some Christmas spirits will see us all through this dark month. The quiz starts at about 55 minutes and 20 seconds and the rest of the episode is filled with hilarious back and forth, little known facts about things vaguely related to the film, some tremendous xylophone playing and a distinct lack of Joel and Alex but don't worry Mr. Personality and Baldilocks will return in next week's episode. www.filmsontrial.co.uk
The Night Before

The Night Before

2019-12-1901:04:42

On the 3rd Week of Christmas Films on Trial brought to me... a stoner film with a wholesome story. Or is it... We put The Night Before on trial this week. Is this a Yuletide laugh a minute, or more of a boxing day log? Film feels is all about our favourite musician cameo (as themselves). Joel brings a quiz about the film (starting at 49 minutes and 47 seconds... extra accuracy provided to keep Gav happy). All of that and more..(not much more, but more nonetheless). Merry Christmas! www.filmsontrial.co.uk
Love Actually

Love Actually

2019-12-1201:29:04

On the 2nd week of Christmas, Films on Trial watched Love Actually... I don't have any witty follow up lines this week... all suggestions are very welcome. This is a long one. Sorry everyone, some films just really divide the nation. The quiz starts at 1hr and 10 minutes. The shouting starts at 10 minutes.. (or so) Maybe just maybe love will actually be all around us next week. www.filmsontrial.co.uk

The Other Guys

The Other Guys

2019-11-2701:01:19

The Other Guys is on trial this week. Is it a desk pop or a desk poop?... I'm sorry, I've lost my touch with these comparisons.. Normal service to resume next week (I hope).

Speed

Speed

2019-11-2101:04:50

This week we put the 90s action film Speed on trial. Is it a blast of a bus journey or does it lose its head? I know, I know... not my finest tagline, but it is a great episode! (if I do say so myself). All thge usual shenanigans inside: a quiz, our favourite bomb disposal scenes, crappy xylophone playing, awful impressions and just general laughter and fun. Also, please leave us a review on iTunes or Spotify, or whatever place you listen to our podcast. It really makes a difference to the show and helps us make it better! (Honest)... P.S. the quiz starts at exactly 43 minutes and 15 seconds. www.filmsontrial.co.uk

It's the final week of Halloween Horror Month! This week's pick is by Ausy. It's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.. but is it Jane Austen, or is it plain Austin... Rubbish impressions, terrible organ playing, a zombie quiz (that starts almost exactly at 46 minutes!) and the trial of course. Give us a like, and a rating and if you're feeling extra generous a review! www.filmsontrial.co.uk
Eli

Eli

2019-10-2401:02:38

The guy who said Mandy is boring must be pulling our leg. Is he just playing Devil's advocate so they can fill up time? What a waste.
