Cinema Eclectica 174 – Drunken Sake Shenanigans

Cinema Eclectica 174 – Drunken Sake Shenanigans

On this episode our Film of the Week is the hotly-tipped adaptation of a cult British novel about gangland youth, and although Graham is on hand to nurse Mick through his “Absolute Beginners” flashbacks, Idris Elba’s directorial debut “Yardie” is a very different proposition. Bonus fact – star Aml Ameen was one of the kids on stage when Jarvis Cocker interrupted Michael Jackson’s performance at the 1996 Brit Awards.

After that we have two very different films for Off the Shelf, with the first being from our new friends at Network, who have kindly supplied Graham with the long-lost grindhouse loonfest “Miss Leslie’s Dolls”. On the other hand Mick dons his reading glasses for Arrow’s release of the samurai classic “Bloody Spear at Mount Fuji” – which is apparently very charming for seventy four minutes then deeply disturbing for another twenty.

So it’s a bit like this podcast then. Only longer.

Co-founder of The Geek Show Podcast Network. Chief Editor and Executive Producer of, and tangentially overburdened host/co-presenter of several shows on the network. When I'm not engaged in production, journalistic shenanigans or the quagmire that is media criticism I watch movies, interesting TV shows and anime, I also enjoy the arts (you know, classical music and stuff), write many, many things, play and collect a lot of video games, read lots of manga, comics and books, and generally enjoy wallowing in the mass of entertainment media like a hippo in mud. I can also cook.

Let us know what you think ...
