087: Mega Shark in Lockdown

Ain’t lockdown a bitch?

The At The Flicks team can’t get out to go into a cinema. Can’t go to a bar to get that beer Neil owes us. We are all stuck in our respective properties having to decide what to watch next. Jeff has to make sure he avoids anything Marvel, Graham is stuck in an endless cycle of Mel and Gerard movies while Neil has to work out how to turn the TV on.

Even after you get to your channels or downloads, how do you know what is going to be any good? It is bad enough having to be stuck inside for weeks, without having to waste your time watching rubbish. Luckily we can help. 

Our two resident experts Emma and Declan are on hand to tell you what is worth watching and what is best avoided. Emma tells you about films that you may not be aware of that are worth a watch. This is certainly a wide ranging list, from acclaimed foreign language features, creature features (many creature features) and movies with top stars that sneaked past most of us. If you enjoy the films half as much as we enjoyed talking to Emma, then you will have a great time.

Later in the show, Declan returns as we discuss what is worth using your TV catch up options on. Some new shows you may have missed, some recent favourites and also some classic TV that you might have put off to watch on a rainy day. Trust us, it’s raining cats and dogs now! After talking to Dec, our to watch list has been extended to unprecedented levels. Witty and knowledgeable, it is always fun to talk to Dec – and his special recommendation to Graham is priceless.

We hope these recommendations help pass the time for you. Please let us know what you think.

As always, enjoy and stay safe.
