WE LIKE TO WATCH: EPISODE THIRTEEN - SING STREET

Image
Episode 13. Some would call it unlucky, but hey you're listening to us so you're pretty lucky! Stu and Billy embrace their musical talents this week and watch Sing Street!

Written & Directed by John Carney (Once, Begin Again), this film set in 1980's Dublin 1985, is about teenager Connor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) who forms a rock 'n' roll band to win the heart of aspiring model Raphina (Lucy Boynton). 

This is 3rd music inspired film by John Carney, & it shows us a world where music has the power to take us away from the turmoil of everyday life and transform us into something greater.

SUPERGIRL Season 1 Giveaway

Image
Supergirl has been a fan favourite of the Geek of Oz crew for being a action series which has so so much heart to it, at times even more than The Flash CW Series, and Supergirl (Season One) is available on DVD and Blu-ray July 27.

Born on the doomed planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped at the same time as her cousin, Superman, but didn’t arrive on Earth until years later after being lost. Raised by her adopted family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to hide the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin.  Years later, at age 24, Kara has spent so many years trying to fit in that she forgot to ever stand out. All that changes when she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero she was always destined to be. With the help of Daily Planet photographer James Olsen, her bioengineer sister Alex, and the Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), Kara takes to the skies to protect her world.  To win a copy of…

Eye in the Sky - Review

Image
Gavin Hood’s Eye in the Sky is about a moral quandary in wartime. The film serves as an autopsy for our current love affair with drone technology, carefully dismantling a routine drone strike in order to evaluate each stakeholder in the decision making process. It craftily weighs up the loss of human life against political gain; resulting in a taut thriller, that’s constantly morphing as fresh perspectives are added to the mix.
Colonel Katherine Powell (Helen Mirren) has spent years tracking some unsavoury terrorist types across the globe. Through hard work she’s finally corralled her targets under the one roof in an African hideout. So time to pull the trigger, right?! Not so fast there Quickdraw! Colonel Powell must now liaise with the wet-blanket Political-types to get final clearance. It’s here where the film truly shines; as contentious moral and strategic points are debated between various bureaucratic combatants, amidst the real-time drama unfolding on the ground in Africa. T…

This reboot of the original franchise sees Paranormal researcher Abby Yates, physicist Erin Gilbert, engineer Jillian Holtzmann, and street smart New Yorker Patty Tolan as four parapsychologists trying to prove that ghosts exist in modern society as strange apparitions appear in Manhattan.

Episode 10! Double Digits! Can you believe Stu and have made it 10 episodes without killing each other?

This week we watched The Nice Guys, directed by Shane Black and staring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe. 

This buddy noir comedy sees Holland March (Ryan Gosling) as a down-on-his-luck private eye, and Jackson Healy (Russell Crowe) as a hired enforcer who hurts people for a living, against the backdrop of a 1977 Los Angeles.

 Fate turns them these two into unlikely partners after a young woman goes missing, and soon learn the hard way that some dangerous people are after her too. Their investigation takes them to dark places as anyone else who gets involved in the case seems to wind up dead.
