Cinema Eclectica 57 – Post-Oscar S&M Tea Party

This week we examine the Oscars for 2016 and their lame-duck cousins the Razzies. In a classy example of counterprogramming, Off The Shelf unfolds with Graham tackling the amazingly-titled absurd Czech new-wave comedy “Tomorrow I’ll Wake Up And Scald Myself With Tea”, Rob waxes lyrical

Cinema Eclectica 56 – Dai Impossible: Welsh Superspy

This week we’re down a Ryan but gain a surprising amount of Comic trivia along the way. In Off The Shelf we continue our look at the filmography of Vera Chytilova with Second Run’s release of “Something Different”. Rob looks at the baffling Marxist crow

Cinema Eclectica 55 – Wrong Kind Of Calendar Girls

This week we have no news to contend with so instead we grapple with the BAFTAs. In Off The Shelf we look at the space documentary “For All Mankind”, British horror romance “Nina Forever”, and Samuel Fuller’s war movie “Fixed Bayonets!” before closing with the

Cinema Eclectica 54 – Mummies Aren’t Daddies

Cinema Eclectica 52 – Lucio Fulci: The Weird Jesus of Gore

This week we’re replaced by glamorous actors having a bath. In Off Tthe Shelf we discuss “The Friends of Eddie Coyle”, the short documentary “Interview with a Cannibal”, Ernst Lubitsch’s “Design for Living”, and the titular Fulci’s “City of the Living Dead”. Our Film of

Cinema Eclectica 51 – Great White Terry Crews of the Antarctic

  We peruse the oscar nominations this week before poking the geriatric bear with a stick. Off the Shelf includes “Escape from ‘Liberty’ Cinema” and “Hiroshima Mon Amour” before a tonal 180 in which this show truly earns its name with “Cobain: Montage of Heck”

Cinema Eclectica 50 – Never Go Full Tarantino

This week none of us were as malicious as we expected – turns out we must like each other or something. In Off the Shelf we look over last week’s recommendations, with Rob taking a trip to “Mulholland Drive”, Aidan with “Spring”, Graham discussing “I

Cinema Eclectica 49 – A Joyous Return (2015 in Review)

… We’re Back. Its our first show of 2016, which means this is officially our first anniversary. In this feature-length edition we look at the worst of the past 12 months (well, we ranted and raved). More importantly we also count down our individual favourites

Cinema Eclectica 48 – A Very Merry Second Run Special

We don’t do podcasts like other children, and the same is true of our Christmas special. On this last episode of 2015 we look at a few of the recent releases from Second Run with “Loves of a Blonde”, “Larks on a String” and the
