Cinema Eclectica 171 – The Legend of Cedric

Even though Graham has been practising his terrible Jason Statham impersonation for an entire week, in the end it’s Mark who gets swallowed up by The Stath’s shark-’em-up “The Meg”. That leaves Rob, Aidan and Graham free to turn their attention to Michael Lehmann’s cult

Cinema Eclectica 170 – Paul Rudd Roulette

After a week’s break the ant-icipation is growing for Graham, Mick and Andrew as they tackle Marvel’s latest superhero offering – “Ant-Man and The Wasp”. Will they make a big deal out of it and add to the positive buzz, belittle it with feeble size

Cinema Eclectica 169 – Jeff Goldblum’s Massive Tricycle

Cinema Eclectica 162 – The Revenant: The James Brown Cut
