This episode of News & Reviews is packed to the gills with brand spanking new films, including a few Oscar contenders.Drama 'Sound of Metal' is on Amazon Prime and stars Riz Ahmed as a drummer who loses his hearing, 'Promising Young Woman' is the comedy thriller directed and written by Emerald Fennell which features a dynamic performance from Carey Mulligan. In addition to these heavy hitters we have reviews of Netflix's monster adventure 'Love and Monsters', timeloop comedy 'Palm Springs', road trip prank movie 'Bad Trip' and British horror 'The Power'.
In this special spoiler semi review episode we try and make sense of Legendary's Monsterverse. We bring up points from all four installments of the Monsterverse so far, including how atomic breath actually works & whether humans are even needed. We'll also find out if Andy is size blind and whether ghosts can overcome a spilled cup of coffee.
Another fortnight of news and reviews have been compiled here for your audio sampling, we've had some big trailers drop for some hotly anticipated movies (including the next offerings from DC and Marvel), a big Netflix deal for 'Knives Out' and sad news for any fans of 'The Trench'.Alongside all of this we've got a bunch of reviews for TV and film. 'Godzilla vs. Kong' is the big box office release that's due to dominate any currently open cinemas for the forseeable future, 'The Night' is a foreign language ghost story set in an LA hotel, 'Violation' is a powerful and uncomfortable revenge thriller, 'Slaxx' a horror comedy set in a clothing store, 'Assassins' a really fascinating documentary that explores a stranger than fiction assassination and 'Wrong Turn' sees a horror franchise be rebooted in a way that's sure to annoy most long term fans.In addition, Andy has caught up with DC's 'Harley Quinn' animated series as well as new Robert Kirkman adaptation 'Invincible' which is currently airing on Amazon Prime.
We're joined by Ant once again for this spoiler special episode where we discuss and dissect 'Zack Snyder's Justice League'. We discuss whether the changes from the 2017 version benefit the film or detract from the action, new scenes, additional characters, where the series would have gone from here and whether we would have liked to see more of this universe. During the podcast we make reference to thespoiler filled livestream that Ant hosted on his channel Talk N Review on youtube, you can find that livestream here for further research:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFyS6Q_7PcM&t=287s

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.
