201 – Darren’s Dash

Welcome to another Darren’s Dash, where we hand over the lead to reviewer Darren to give us his pick of the movies you may well have missed. And from this month there is a bonus, Darren will be providing a round up – a hyper dash if you like – of TV shows and streaming services of note. Included this month is Darren’s first excursion into Apple TV. What are his views and what does he recommend? Check out the show to get all the details.

At the Flicks · 201 – Darrens Dash

Ah, I hear you ask, but what about the movies, the main reason we listen to the Dash? What are Darren’s choices for this month? Fear not, there are four great ones, including one so scary that Neil had to miss the recording because he is still having the therapy for watching it. The films are:

Boiling Point — A one take feature about a high-pressure night in a London restaurant.

Slaxx — Why are there not more movies about killer jeans?

Fresh — We convinced Neil that this is “safe” entertainment on Disney. It isn’t and he is still quivering!

The Phantom Of The Open — The incredible true story of golfer Maurice Flitcroft (as played by Mark Rylance)

There you have it – four films you may have missed. Are they worth catching up with? Check out the latest episode of Darren’s Dash to find out.
As always, if you have any comments on these movies, or anything talked about on the show, please let us know.

Until next time, Darren says “see you at the flicks”
