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. Film trivia, quizzes, banter, terrible impressions, musical interludes, and lots of debating.

Artemis Fowl

Artemis Fowl

2020-08-0901:18:41

We've been a little slow in editing and publishing recently due to lockdown issues but rest assured the episodes have all been recorded and will start coming in thick and fast. The descriptions will get back to normal soon too. We promise! Anyway, to continue the impromptu bird month, Artemis Fowl is on trial. A juicy feast or a barely edible? Dave and Ausy defend this 2020 Disney release. www.filmsontrial.co.uk
Birdman

Birdman

2020-07-1501:11:04

Birdman is up in the dock this week, www.filmsontrial.co.uk
Lovebirds

Lovebirds

2020-07-1452:37

The netflix original Lovebird's is this week's lockdown film on trial. www.filmsontrial.co.uk
After such a great response form the Disney+ challenge, we decided to try it again but for Amazon... With so much to choose from we limited it to horror films on Prime. You can't begin to imagine the films we picked for each other. www.filmsontrial.co.uk
Dunkirk

Dunkirk

2020-06-1001:09:06

Dunkirk takes the stand this week. Is it a meticulous recount of an important event in British history or does it get bogged down in patriotism? Ausy and Dave and Alex prosecute until the latter realises he's meant to be defending it. They point out the lack of any real protagonist and the "stiff upper lip" approach of the script and actors. Gav, later joined my Alex, defends by highlighting the incredible cinematography, score and attention to detail. There's also a quiz based on War films and an impression of Churchill. But which Churchill do we mean? www.filmsontrial.co.uk
We're many many weeks into coronavirus lockdown now and have decided that we really need to inflict further inconvenience on each others isolation experiences. Did we decide to pick out some Disney gems or the most obscure Disney durge... no prizes for guessing correctly. www.filmsontrial.co.uk
Midsommar

Midsommar

2020-05-2501:07:56

Midsommar takes the stand this week. Are fans brainwashed or is this cutting edge horror? Joel and Dave prosecute, discussing the unnecessary gore and unbelievable stupidity of the characters. Gav and Ausy strongly disagree, pointing out the incredible cinematography and complex themes running throughout. On top of all this there's a quiz about cults in film and an impression of a swedish accent unlike any you have heard before. www.filmsontrial.co.uk
Roadhouse

Roadhouse

2020-05-1501:05:43

Road house is on the chopping block this week. Timeless 80s action masterpiece or a pain in the neck? Gav and Dave defend this week, arguing that this is a film that sets out to entertain and does exactly that. Joel and Alex prosecute, pointing out the dated attitudes towards women and nonsensical plot. Plus an impression of the wonderful Sam Elliot and a quiz! www.filmsontrial.co.uk
Extraction

Extraction

2020-05-0401:04:05

Extraction is in the hot seat this week. An adrenaline pumping blockbuster or as much fun as a face full of rake? Joel and Gav argue it's a hit, highlighting the innovative action scenes and great performance by Chris Hemsworth. Ausy and Dave go on the attack, discussing the lack of any original story or dialogue. To top it off there's a quiz called Chris cross and we learn that Australian accents are hard to get right. www.filmsontrial.co.uk
The Rock

The Rock

2020-04-3001:04:28

The Rock (1996) is on trial this week. Does it soar like a rocket or get impaled like Tony Todd? Alex and Dave defend this week, arguing that classic 90s action and a strong cast make this a hit. Gav and Ausy disagree, pointing out that tired action clichés and a terrible performance by Cage make them want to throw away the key. On top of this there's also an impression of Connery (there's more pressure when it's a classic) and a quiz all about Michael Bay films. www.filmsontrial.co.uk
Cloud Atlas

Cloud Atlas

2020-04-2701:10:26

The ambitious Cloud Atlas is in the dock this week. Will it hold up or crumble under the pressure? Joel and Alex defend this week, highlighting the versatile performances and rich plot. Ausy and Gav try to bring them crashing down to earth, arguing the length and sheer amount of story stop this from being a hit. As always there is a dubious impression and a quiz at the end! www.filmsontrial.co.uk
Oceans  11 (2001)

Oceans 11 (2001)

2020-04-2601:08:54

The 2001 Ocean's 11 is on trial this week. Does it hit the jackpot or is it caught red-handed? We have our special guest and friend Big Dave joining us this week to lend some sanity to proceedings as well as his genuine opinion. Gav and Joel prosecute, pointing out the glaring lack of substantial female roles and a plot that lacks any tension. Dave and Alex defend, arguing that stylish direction and great performances make this a hit. As well as all of this we discover doing an impersonation of a bad impersonation (sorry Don Cheadle) is trickier than you think. www.filmsontrial.co.uk
This week Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is on trial. Is it totally awesome or completely bodacious? Cowabunga or cowabungedup? Turtle shell or or turtles head? ... you get the picture. www.filmsontrial.co.uk
Cloverfield

Cloverfield

2020-04-0901:05:30

Cloverfield is on trial this week. Does it bring the house down or does it make your head want to explode? Joel and Alex are defending this week, arguing that outstanding acting and an original take make this a classic. Dave and Ausy disagree, pointing out the tired monster movie tropes and stomach churning camerawork. All this and an incredibly awful impression of TJ Miller, plus a quiz based on famous cinema monsters. www.filmsontrial.co.uk
The Warriors

The Warriors

2020-03-2658:23

This week we're putting The Warriors on trial. Is it a hard hitting cult classic or does it pull it's punches? Gav and Dave are on the defence this time, claiming this is a hidden gem with innovative direction and a strong message about gang violence. Joel and Alex prosecute, arguing that cult status covers a multitude of sins. All this plus impressions of Zeus and a quiz. www.filmsontrial.co.uk
Event Horizon

Event Horizon

2020-03-2259:46

Event Horizon is in the hot seat this week. An epic journey into the unknown or a confused wander into the void? Gav and Dave put their hearts on the line defending this week, arguing that superb performances and an original take on sci-fi horror means it should take its place on our hallowed Hit List. Ausy and Alex prosecute, pointing out the high levels of needless gore and anticlimactic ending. Plus: impressions of Sean Pertwee and a quiz! www.filmsontrial.co.uk
The Irishman

The Irishman

2020-03-1601:00:55

The Irishman is on trial... Just like kissing the Blarney Stone? or more like passing a kidney stone? Please accept some heartfelt apologies! we thought we had released this episode back after the Bone Alone episode... it seemed to get lost in Ausy's birthday celebrations and his unfathomable podast folder structure. All the usual good stuff is here. Hope you enjoy! www.filmsontrial.co.uk
We're back with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Is this a clever reflection on the human condition or should you pay good money to have it erased from you memory? All the usual good stuff returns, xylophones, insults, trivia and the quiz but most importantly the caption contest and the freddo giveaway www.filmsontrial.co.uk
This week we pass judgement on the 2020 Harley Quinn movie, Birds of Prey or one of the other names it has been marketed as. Is it a majestic feathered eagle, or just a bit bald? www.filmsontrial.co.uk
Reanimator

Reanimator

2020-02-2301:07:08

The HP Lovecraft horror classic, Reanimator is on trial this week. Is this a film that should have been left to rest? or is it in everyones interest that it is kept alive? This weeks quiz is all about Lovecraft and loads of other great content... as always. www.filmsontrial.co.uk

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.
