091: I Have to Return Some Videotapes

Welcome to the latest At The Flicks review show.
Regular listeners will notice a few changes this month, the biggest being that, thanks to lockdown, there aren’t many new movies to review! Which is of course a problem for a review show.

However before we talk about our sneaky approach to that problem, let’s look at our new expanded team. Let’s start with the regulars”

Oracle” Jeff
I make my film selections to annoy Jeff” Neil
If I could edit Jeff out of the show I would” Graham, are now joined every month by the following ultra keen film goers (when cinemas are open):
I will never side with Jeff” Phil
Just who is this Jeff person anyway” Darren
What a team. It’s like the magnificent seven but with only five!
So just what are our team up to with a scarcity of new releases. Well luckily they found two, one thanks to Netflix. Other than that Graham came up with an excellent idea, although both Jeff and “Tory boy” Neil tried to claim credit for it. Graham’s plan was to pick movies that had been released during the month of April in previous years. Each member of the team could pick one film, and the choices were, shall we say, unique:

  • Darren picked a good old fashioned World War II adventure film, although with a subject like this, the Brexiteers will never watch it!
  • Phil picked a Welsh actor’s finest hour
  • Graham chose a true classic and has redesigned his garden following his viewing
  • Jeff has picked a film with right wing police credentials. He continues to live the dream
  • Neil spent his time listening to the others and selected a film designed to annoy Jeff to his very core. Something so bad that Phil almost, and I stress almost, had to side with Jeff. However decency and taste did eventually stop him from making that bold step.

Check us out and let us know what you think of our choices. Also what criteria should we be applying for film picks in the lockdown months ahead.
All ideas welcome unless they come from Jeff.

Thanks:
