Do not touch that dial! The Wireless Express Show that you know and love is still here, only now with a new, dynamic and easier to say name. Ladies and gentlemen it’s the Movie Express Show! New name, same show, great taste! This week we go back to high school with Romy and Michele and wrap up the Sports Season in style with Tin Cup. The show also features talk of Golden Girls and sitcoms past, RAGE for PC and the secret life of Oprah.
This week the Wireless Gentlemen discuss Sidney Pollack’s 1974 crime drama masterpiece, Yakuza. The sports season ends (or does it?) with Caddyshack, which leads to some interesting Loggins later on. For table time Luke discusses Brad Neely. Wrapup is even more Loggins than anything you’ve ever seen or heard before, even if you’ve met Kenny Loggins in person.
The greatest podcasting double-team takes on one of the most prolific pairings in film history as Conor and Luke take a look at Pacino and De Niro in Michael Mann’s Heat. The Sports Season sees a trip back to Philadelphia as Rocky Balboa delights with its complex characters and feel-good atmosphere. The table sees some Submarine discussion. In this week’s Question Time the boys discuss genre splicing in detail.
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.
