Film Ireland Podcast: Episode 35 – Drop Kick a Puppy

 

Sarah Cullen and Richard Drumm address the nation and share their latest jibber jabber on some new films that people have made for you to see, including dream-chasing and drug-taking in Wild Rose,  spotting Dublin streets in Greta, and high-school yarns in 8th Grade and Book Smart.

Film Ireland Podcast: Episode 32 – Space Jesus & Sudden Male Nudity

 

Sarah Cullen & Richard Drumm return to your ears after a forced lengthy absence in 2018. We hope to find a home in 2019 and have them back for their almost-regular film ruminations. For now, we set up shop in an abandoned room and reflected on the year in film…

The pod kicks off with our buffs looking at their favourite Irish films of the year and includes Richard finally asking Sarah if she’s “got any yokes”.

Our best branding people came together to title a special section for this episode called “The 2018 Oscar Films that Only Came Out Here in 2018 but Are Technically 2017 Films”, including a look at the politics of Phantom Thread and the fish-sex movie.

After discussing the sudden appearances of naked men, Sarah and Richard pull apart their favourite films of the year, discuss recurring tropes in the year in film, including assimilation, Motherhood as a horrifying thing, highbrow trash and how deaths of wives and girlfriends give men the opportunity to become violent and get in touch with their emotions. Handy.

Finally there’s the delicious mention of turkeys of the year.

Ear ye. Ear ye…

Richard and Jonathan have spent Christmas scrawling lists on the basement walls looking back over the year in film. The time has come for them to share their palaeolithicly compiled polls with the free world. And so, in this end of year podcast, our imprisoned presenters discuss their 5 top films of the year, alongside a few other categories – including worst film, best soundtrack, most wasted hype, most excruciating film of the year and the chances of freedom.

None being the answer to the last.

At the end of the recording, our hosts were told that they would not be released over the festive season – the one bit of basement tinsel was duly burnt and the door was bolted. As a result the podcast will return before the new year to give us a look back at the highs and lows of film in 2015.
