The Vast of Night & Transformers: The War for Cybertron

The Vast of Night & Transformers: The War for Cybertron

Hi everyone and thanks for tuning in.

We start this weeks episode with quotes from Federico Fellini as we seek out and consider the truth of the artistic experience. It's not long before Reegs is gaslighting Howie though so don't worry that we have gone all highbrow and intellectual on you. I'm sure you were very worried about that.

Our top 5 this week is about movie cameos and after 45 minutes of talking around the subject we still couldn't agree what a cameo actually was. Does the actor need to play themselves? Do they have to be uncredited? Do they have to have a line in the film or can they wander around aimlessly? We don't know but we definitely have some thoughts.

Our main feature is the Amazon exclusive The Vast Of Night, a 2019 homage to 1950's B-movies helmed by first time director Andrew Patterson. Like the cold hard vacuum of spcae, this movie took our breath away.Sorry -  I’m addicted to space jokes, but someday I’ll over-comet.

We finish our extra-terrestrial extravaganza with a trip to Cybertron as we review Transformers - War for Cybertron. Will we be an optimist prime about Netflix's new series or more of a negatron. Tune in to find out.

Remember, in space no one can hear you laugh. And you won't be laughing after listening to wait...that's not right.

Anyway, until next time we remain Bad Dads...
