In the spirit of “Bring Your Child To Work Day”, our podcasters ask Sebastian, Cass and Théo to each choose a film and then review it with their Dads. The Sons display their inner geek – and Richard and Greg learn that their legacy is in safe hands. Three sons, three movies: it couldn’t have been better scripted! But which movie was transformed by flatulence…?

Richard and Greg finally get round to reviewing three musicals mentioned way back in Season 1 – all musicals about people who are themselves creating musical experiences. On two of these films, they’re highly aligned. But one film leaves Greg apologising for trampling all over Richard’s dreams. Is that why Greg tells Richard that they’ll always have Casablanca…?

Melbourne has been in pandemic lockdown. So Richard and Greg record their first distanced podcast (socially, not emotionally). They start this series by reviewing three films that regularly appear on Bad Movie lists. Can their scores rival their lowest yet – half a point for “Showgirls” in Series 2? Tune in and find out…

Can it be Christmas again already? Richard and Greg have been in Pandemic Lockdown throughout 2020, working at a safe distance from each other (if such a thing exists) to develop Season 4. Ironically, now that they’re allowed out again, they stay home to watch two Christmas Classics with ardent fanbases – and then jump forward to last Christmas to review …um… …well… “Last Christmas”.

Not so much a Christmas message, more of a cross-promotion (which sounds more Easterish than Christmassy). Greg stops by to tell you about our Season 4 AND another podcast that Richard has been working on this year. You’ll find “Killing Phar Lap: A Forensic Investigation” on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts or the webpage https://killingpharlap.podomatic.com And while you’re listening to that, Greg will be working on a Christmas pun about “cross promoting” and Ebenezer Scrooge…

Welcome to our final episode of the Friday Quarantine Film Night!
We decided to get all festive to celebrate.
We start with “Lila” – a charming 9-minute Spanish/Argentinian film with which we have a personal connection. You’ll find it at http://tinyurl.com/fqfn-11-short
And then we have the 1946 Christmas classic “It's a Wonderful Life”. It’s a terrific film – the first that Richard and Greg agreed as a 10.
You’ll find its IMDB profile at http://tinyurl.com/fqfn-11-film
You can watch it on Stan – or rent/buy it via iTunes, Microsoft, Google Play or YouTube.
After you’ve watched it, you can listen to our review in our Series 1 Xmas 2015 Episode.
And then don’t forget to leave your responses on our Facebook page.
Thanks for coming!

This week we’re watching local films.
“Rebooted” is a 13-minute Australian short made last year. It’s a loving tribute to the stop-motion animation of Ray Harryhausen. You’ll find it at http://tinyurl.com/fqfn-10-short
As a companion piece, we recommend a 2-minute excerpt of Harryhausen’s work on YouTube which you’ll find at http://tinyurl.com/fqfn-10-extra
Then it’s on to New Zealand’s “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” starring Sam Neill and made in 2016.
If you’re quick, it’s on SBS streaming in Australia (until next Monday 29 June 2020) at http://tinyurl.com/fqfn-10-film
You can also watch it on Foxtel – or rent/buy it via iTunes, Google Play, Microsoft or YouTube.

We’re staying in to watch Kids’ films this week, regardless of your age.
We begin with the 7½-minute French short “Jubilé” about how the Queen is helped by a corgi and a guardsman. You’ll find it at http://tinyurl.com/fqfn-09-short
Our US feature film is called “Shorts” from the director of both the “Spy Kids” series and “From Dusk to Dawn”.
This is an imaginative story about what happens when kids and adults get hold of a wishing-stone. It’s inventive and gross at times. Probably not one for the littlies.
You’ll find its IMDB profile at http://tinyurl.com/fqfn-09-film
You can watch it on Netflix – or rent/buy it via iTunes, Google Play or Microsoft.
And WE wish you’d leave your responses on our Facebook page. (Thank you)

It’s Westerns Week!
Our short film this week is a 9-minute US comedy from 2014. You’ll find “The Gunfighter” at http://tinyurl.com/fqfn-08-short
Then our feature film provides a different spin on the genre. It’s the 2015 Australian film “The Dressmaker”.
You’ll find its IMDB profile at http://tinyurl.com/fqfn-08-film and you can rent/buy it via iTunes, Google Play, Microsoft or YouTube.

Our short film this week is “Future Boyfriend”. It’s a 10½-minute US film made in 2016 that you’ll find at http://tinyurl.com/fqfn-07-short
Our feature film is a US documentary that we discussed in Series 2. “Stories We Tell” was made in 2012 and is an exemplar of the form.
You’ll find its IMDB profile at http://tinyurl.com/fqfn-07-film
You can watch it on Stan or Tubi – or rent/buy it via iTunes, Google Play or YouTube.
After you’ve watched it, you can listen to our review in Series 2 Episode 7.
And then don’t forget to leave your responses on our Facebook page.
