New Podcast! The Escapist Movie Podcast – “The Great Die Hard Debate”

The Escapist have launched a movie podcast, and I was thrilled to join Jack Packard for a special Christmas episode, and our last episode of the year. The idea developed once it became clear that Jack and I were separately looking at this concept from two very different angles. So we decided to tackle the big question: is Die Hard a Christmas movie?

New Podcast! The Escapist Movie Podcast – “Is HBO Max Going to Change Cinema As We Know It?”

The Escapist have launched a movie podcast, and I was thrilled to join Jack Packard and Maggie Iken for the fifteenth episode.

New Podcast! The Escapist Movie Podcast – “Three Overlooked Horror Movies You Should Watch”

The Escapist have launched a movie podcast, and I was thrilled to join Jack Packard and Bob Chipman for the sixth episode. Because it was a slow week for film news, and because this is officially October, we decided that we’d take the chance to look at three horror movies that are perhaps under-appreciated and well worth your time: Jeff Barnaby’s Blood Quantum (2020), John Carpenter’s In the Mouth of Madness (1995) and Steve Miner’s House (1986).

New Podcast! The Escapist Movie Podcast – “Its All About DC Fandome!”

The Escapist have launched a movie podcast, and I was thrilled to join Jack Packard and Bob Chipman for the first episode, a discussion of all things DC Fandome.

It was a packed schedule, with new footage from Wonder Woman, The Snyder Cut and The Batman, along with behind-the-scenes peaks at The Suicide Squad and a tease of what Dwayne Johnson has lined up for Black Adam. As one might expect from the DC Extended Universe, the output varied dramatically in terms of both content and tone. There was a lot to unpack.
