Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island – S05E02

Our listeners can be forgiven for thinking at this point that we hate the giant monster genre. After all, we’ve already taken Pacific Rim and Godzilla to the rewriters room, and now we’re doing the same for Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Kong: Skull Island. The truth is we’ve genuinely liked all these movies (well, maybe not Gregg, …

Speed Racer

Speed Racer – S05E01

Liam Creswick choose easily the most colourful and frenetic movie we’ve attempted to rewrite yet for his first episode as host: Speed Racer.

The Net – S04E12

In 1995 the internet was a new, fledgling technology and baby boomer screenwriters were super scared of it. They imagined a world in which all your information is stored online by a giant, nefarious software company who can use your data against you. Crazy boomers, so paranoid. In 1995 the internet was a new, fledgling …

Secret Life of Pets

Secret Life of Pets – S04E11

For the first time we set our sights on a 3D animated kids movie, proving that no film is beyond the reach of our desire to cynically rewrite Hollywood’s most popular movies. Colin, Gregg and Scott peak inside the Secret Life of Pets to find weak motivations and convenient plot devices and together discover they’re …
