It’s that time again! A new Movie Express has pulled into the station, this week Steve Martin and John Candy charm us with their funny and poignant performances in Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

Apologies for the wavy sound in the first segment.
This week Conor and Luke head straight for hell! Clive Barker’s Hellraiser provides some laughs and glimpses of brilliance, we also find out about the secret identities of Cenobites thanks to Conor’s impromptu Hellraiser fan-fiction. The Sports season continues with Rocky, a film about a lonely man with a big heart; truly a sports movie classic! Lastly, Luther is put on the table and Luke explains why Righteous Kill is a good advertisement for Michael Mann’s Heat.
