With many more starts and high-profile directors drawn to making their way to the small screen we had really exciting year on our hands and there was plenty shows to choose from. And so many surprises! We jumped through the hoops with Michael Jordan, made bad decisions with Jimmy McGill, meditated on the meaning of life in Amaya HQ, danced to reggae in Notting Hill and got bored in Sligo with Connell and Marianne.

With year 2020 behind us Rado and Conor gather together (in their own bubbles) to reflect on it and discuss their favourite movies of that forsaken year. It doesn’t come to anyone’s surprise that their choices are completely different… for many reasons! The criteria for their lists is simple: we take into account only movies released in the UK (cinemas, streaming platforms and VOD) in 2020. Stay until the end to take a sneak peak at what 2021 might bring in the post-credit scene. Enjoy!   List of Conor’s favourite movies.

In the longest (so far) instalment of our show we go back to the roots of cinema and we discuss a timeless classic - Orson Wells’ ‘Citizen Kane’. And that’s our starting point for a review of David Fincher’s ‘Mank’. Large part of our news section is devoted to the fact that Warner Bros. will premiere all of their 2021 movies on HBO Go, not only in cinemas. What are the implication of that for the whole industry? And finally, we dive into two recent episodes of adventures of galaxy’s favourite Child and his masked minder, aka ‘Mandalorian’.

To binge or not to binge - this is the question! We try to answer this when discussing ‘The Crown’, ‘Mandalorian’ and other TV shows we’ve been watching over the year. We review ‘Mangrove’, first of five Steve McQueen’s movies (or episodes?) that is a part of the ‘Small Axe’ anthology series. And we continue to discuss series 2 of ‘Mandalorian’, that’s getting better and better. Apart from that, as always, we have a lot of news, film recommendations and the usual nonsense that somehow slips into the episode.   00:00 It's Beginning to Sound a Lot Like Christmas   News: 11:40 ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ trailer reaction  18:49 ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ release date for cinemas and HBO Max  22:50 ‘Wandavision’ premiere date  26:02 Disney considering releasing more movies on Disney+  30:58 Who’s replacing Johnny Depp in ‘Fantastic Beasts’ franchise?  33:30 ‘The Last of Us’ ordered to series by HBO  35:15 Spike Lee will make a musical about Viagra!    What Have We’ve Been Watching: Conor: 36:50 Coca-Cola Christmas Commercial 37:35 ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ and ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ (in 4K and Dolby Vision) Rado: 41:45 ‘National Lampoon’s Vacation’ (Netflix) 44:28 ‘Deep Impact’ (Netflix) 48:04 ‘The Great British Bake Off’ (Channel 4) 50:30 ’The Crown’ (Netflix)   We recommend: ‘Parasite’ (Amazon Prime) and how visual effects are used in the movie    Reviews: 1:06:18 ‘Mangrove’ (‘Small Axe’ miniseries, BBC) 1:26:20 ‘Mandalorian’ Season 2, episodes 3 and 4 (Disney+)   Thank you for listening.

This episode is a milestone! We have a guest filmmaker talking to us about his movie (Rado interviewed Nathan Grossman, director of ‘I Am Greta’, in Venice). Not to mention some more familiar voices appearing... through an app. We recount what have we’ve been watching, and the list is impressive.

Conor opts-in for a home entertainment with some scary stuff, preparing himself for Halloween.

When news broke that the new James Bond movie will be delayed we were in pieces. That’s why we spend most of the news section talking about the dire situation that cinemas in the UK - and everywhere else - are in. But we also discuss other things, like surprising casting additions to upcoming 'Spider-Man 3' movie. And we learn what gave Conor chills in the childhood. Our movie reviews and What have we've been watching sections cover new releases like ‘Enola Holmes’, film festivals and some classic hits, like ‘Batman Forever’ and ‘The Karate Kid’.

We go through the rollercoaster of emotions. From the joys of our favourite show winning many Emmy awards, through sadness when we learned that more movies are being delayed, to deep depression/nostalgia when discussing British serial killer. But all is well in Deep South, where the devil doesn’t wear Prada, but smokes a lot, drinks a lot and seems to have a cruel sense of humor. Please be aware that there is some controversy in this episode. Rado admits he’s an addict, Conor is dissing ‘Breaking Bad’ and makes statement about ‘Shitts Creek’ based on ‘Modern Family’. However, Conor changes his mind about David Tennant, so he is forgiven his sins.   00:00 Conor talking about some futuristic gaming devices News 12:00 Our Emmy awards reactions 33:05 Disney delays a lot of films 38:40 ‘WandaVison’ trailer 40:35 Disney+ tv series about Nick Fury in development 42:00 ‘The Lion King’ sequel will be directed by Barry Jenkins What have we’ve been watching 43:30 Rado: ‘Akwafina Is Nora From Queens’ (BBC), ‘Extinction: The Facts’ (BBC), ‘Behind The Scenes of The Dark Knight Trilogy’ (YouTube), ‘Cobra Kai’ (Netflix) 51:00 Conor: ’The Gentleman’  Reviews 54:40 ‘Des’ (miniseries, ITV) 1:03:38 ‘Challenger: The Final Flight (miniseries, Netflix) 1:10:25 ’The Devil All The Time’ (Netflix)   You can find us online on Twitter: @BlockBusterspod, @rdfolta and @designconor.

And we’re trying to fit our impressions / reviews within 15 minute timeframes. Warning! This episode is full of spoilers, so if you 'don't want to know the secret', please use the timestamp to skip to the movie you've already seen. 00:30 Intro 16:11 ‘Memento’ (2000) Watch this video where Christopher Nolan explains timelines in ‘Memento’  31:40 ‘The Prestige’ (2006) 46:56 ‘Inception’ (2010) 'Inception' Behind the Scenes - Zero Gravity 1:05:00 ‘Interstellar’ (2014) 1:23:00 ‘Dunkirk’ (2017) Watch this video on Shepard tones - The sound illusion that makes Dunkirk so intense  Watch 'The Dunkirk Spirit' Featurette here    We've rated all the movies discussed in this episode and you can find them on our Letterboxd account. Our personal accounts are here: radox and CNRBYL.
