Episode 29: Final Destination Franchise

iTunes       Android        Web Player        RSS      Stitcher

In This Episode:

In the early days of the podcast Allen & Chris had a go at this franchise. However due to technical issues it was lost. So to celebrate our anniversary we sat down and gave it another go.


There are broadly two ways a Diminishing Returns ‘Franchise’ Episode pans out:

1) we watch something so ill conceived and badly executed it brings out anger, incredulity and off topic rants.

2) we watch something we genuinely enjoy and we talk excitedly about why we love it.

This is definitely the second type of episode. Seriously, Chris loves these films.

We talk, Death, Tony Todd, X-Files Connections, Stifler, ‘The Final’ instalments of franchises, Rube Goldberg Murder Machines, Sensitive kids and more!

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

Episode 27: The Suicide Squad

iTunes       Android        Web Player        RSS      Stitcher

In This Episode:

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?

In This Episode:

Allen and Chris cheer on Snake Plissken as he fights the man, the system and poor depth perception.
