The 250, Episode #13 – Inside Out (#128)

Do you ever look at someone and wonder, “What is going on inside their head?”

Hosted by Andrew Quinn and Darren Mooney, The 250 is a fortnightly trip through some of the best (and worst) movies ever made, as voted for by Internet Movie Database Users. New episodes are released every second Saturday at 6pm GMT, with the occasional bonus episode between them.

This time, Pete Docter’s Inside Out.

Featuring the anthropomorphised personalities of five distinct emotions, Inside Out invites its audience to step inside the mind of an eleven year girl and see how it ticks. Riley has just moved across the country with her family as her father takes on a new job, forcing “Joy” to work overtime to maintain her sunny disposition. However, as “Sadness” begins to creep in around the edges, maintaining that optimism may prove a challenge.

At time of recording, it was ranked the 128th best movie of all time on the Internet Movie Database.

New Podcast! The X-Cast – Episode 80 (Chris Carter’s “The After)

Just a quick link to a recent guest appearance on a lovely bonus episode of The X-Cast, a great X-Files podcast run by the prolific Tony Black.

Taking a quick break from the show’s coverage of the second season, I chatted with Tony about Chris Carter’s pilot for Amazon, The After. The After is an interesting addition to Carter’s filmography, and in many ways prefigures the direction in which he would take his six-episode revival of The X-Files. We got to talk about all sorts of fun things, from Irish stereotypes to dead bees to capitalising most effectively on the lack of broadcast standards and practices. Check it out the episode here, or click the link below.
