DIMINISHING RETURNS: A comedy podcast about movie sequels, prequels, spin-offs and reboots. Hosted by Allen and Chris. WARNING: Contains Scottish accents and spoilers.
In between ‘proper’ episodes (where we delve into a particular film or franchise) we’ll be doing bonus episodes where we talk about wider trends in sequel culture, sequel news, new trailers and whatever the hell we like.
As we celebrate the podcast’s first birthday we look at what did we got right and what did we got wrong in our previous years’ Trailer Talks?
Chris unveils a new detective duo, Allen becomes a serious challenger to the man of a thousand voices, a potential Lovers Rock album project.
We also talk sequels that should have been made, but haven’t been.
And, due to Allen’s work keeping him out of the country, we an out of time Trailer Talk
OUT OF TIME TRAILER TALK:
Thanks to the Spocklight Podcast for their suggestion to have a look at this belated Disney midquel.
Terrible people are brought together to work as a team… but enough about the hosts of this podcast. With the upcoming release of Wonder Woman we look at an earlier DC Extended Universe film, Suicide Squad.
DC had just released the dour Batman V Superman: Yawn Of Justice, which was heavily criticised for it’s dark tone, while it’s great rival Marvel had success with Guardians Of The Galaxy, a super quippy ensemble film featuring reluctant heroes. Reluctant, third-tier, not famous heroes….
What was DC to do with their own not-famous-reluctant-heroes ensemble flick?
Allen and Chris cheer on Snake Plissken as he fights the man, the system and poor depth perception.
We know you may be sick of hearing about Trump’s first 100 days in office so take your mind off current affairs as we discuss the ‘Escape From….’ series , set in a dystopian future where authoritarian demagogue presidents wall off undesirables. *Allen and Chris look to camera*
