This week we celebrate some of Kathryn Bigelow’s earlier work, with Near Dark as the feature and Strange Days as this week’s science fiction film. For Table Time Conor demands a remake of Frankenhooker and Luke gets hot under the collar about regional restrictions. Question Time addresses movie adaptations of video games, noting that if you’ve got to have a Japanese Thunder God in your movie, you should really get a French dude to play him.

In this third episode we become entranced by the bewitching Lady From Shanghai, chat about Hammer horror’s penchant for cleavage and bring a couple of things like Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland movie and John Connolly’s Book Of Lost Things. Also a historic week, because we have our first listener questions! Listen in delight as we struggle to answer them intelligently.
