Image
Episode 20! Stu and Billy are back at the flicks to check out The Red Turtle!
The Red Turtle is a 2016 French-Belgian-Japanese Animated film directed by Michael Dudok de Wit in his feature film debut. The film is a co-production between two animation studios, Wild Bunch and Studio Ghibli.

The film tells the story of a man who washes up on a island populated only by turtles and crabs. His efforts to escape the island are inhibited by a huge red turtle, with him he battles and also bonds with. The film has no dialogue.


As well as the film, Stu and I discuss what else we've been watching this week, and look over the latest in movie news.

Enjoy!

12 Actors Who Do Their Own Stunts

Image
Action films are famous for their large-scale stunts and some actors are more than happy to cast off a stunt double for a slice of the glory. To celebrate the release of Jack Reacher: Never Go Back on October 20, we have curated the top 12 actors who have risked life and limb to do their own stunts.
Tom Cruise Cruise has starred in a lot action flicks in his time and has gained major street cred by completing all of his own stunts. The Mission: Impossible series is his most well-known chain of stunts where Cruise not only climbed, but ran down the mirrored glass exterior of the Burj Khalifa, the 181-story skyscraper in Dubai that holds the record for the highest structure ever built. He has also put his life at risk doing his own stunt driving in the fast-paced car chase scenes of Jack Reacher, the sequel of which, titled Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, is in cinemas from October 20!

Read, Watch, Play! Ep.19 Live from Oz Comic-con

Image
After a prolonged hiatus Read, Watch, Play! is back for another episode. Stu, Chris and myself caught up at Oz comic-con Sydney and manged to record a podcast a quick podcast.

We talk all things Oz comic-con, Chris talks about his dinner with Karl Urban, Stu talks about the creatively titled Louie Theroux documentary 'My Scientology movie' and I just generally laugh and nod. As always the podcast is jam packed full of rants and ramblings on pop-culture topped with a healthy portion of piss-taking. All in all it's everything you have come to expect from a Geek of Oz podcast!

As you have no doubt figured out by now any sense of scheduling has been thrown out the window and at this point we will just try and get an episode of Read, Watch, Play! out when ever we can. On the bright-side Stu and Billy have been absolutely killing it with there film and television focused podcast We like to Watch. Episodes drop every week or so and you can check out the latest installment here.

The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years Review

Image
With The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years director Ron Howard (Apollo 13, Backdraft & Willow) takes on the unenviable task of finding a fresh perspective on four of the most well documented people in modern history. At this point, there probably isn’t much about the Beatles that hasn’t already been committed to print or film. That being said, does this film break any new ground? Not particularly, but it’s still a great time hanging out with some phenomenally entertaining lads.
The film loosely follows the band's history, however predominantly focusing on 1962-1966 and their gruelling tour schedule. This may sound strange, but I forgot just how insane the fan reaction to the Beatles was when they travelled around the world. Sure, there’s always the footage of screaming teenagers at airports and what not, but this film highlights the unprecedented crowd control issues the boys were causing. Something you couldn’t imagine any modern day performers inspiring.
