Cinema Eclectica 209 – Damn You 5 for £25!

The uncontainable power of our sister show 4-Panel rises up and consumes us again as Mick and Andrew join Aidan to discuss “X-Men: Dark Phoenix”. It’s the last in a franchise that’s lasted as long as two MCUs, but what’s the endgame like?

Of course, before we watched films with the word ‘men’ in the title, we had to make do with films with ‘man’ in the title, and the master of those was Carol Reed. After “The Third Man”, “Our Man in Havana” and “Odd Man Out” he made “The Running Man” (no Arnie!), which Mick covers for Off the Shelf, which also has Aidan covering the Canadipocalypse thriller “Def-Con 4”.

Stay tuned for an exciting new mutation in our director’s lottery series… (and no, it’s not “The New Mutants” because that will never be released).

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.
