From the beating heart of Middlesbrough town centre comes episode 56 of the JT Movie Podcast. First up, over coffee and amongst polite society in Marks and Spencer’s cafe comes a lengthy chat about this week’s vault pick: Cameron Crowe’s Vanilla Sky. After that, the chaps head off for a cinematic double-header at the town’s finest multiplex and later hit the pub to discuss the revenge thriller Cold In July and food-porn comedy Chef. Whilst downing a couple of pints and devouring some fine pub grub. So, lament over the ultimate first world problem of having Cameron Diaz when you really want Penelope Cruz, take an unwise car ride, don a latex mask, imagine Kurt Russell and call for tech support before DOWNLOADING THE JT MOVIE PODCAST, EPISODE 56, NOW!
This it’s a first for the JT Movie Podcast. After falling out over a Thai escort and a gambling debt, the hosts can no longer stand to be in the same room as one another and thus utilise Skype to keep the podcast magic coming. After a bit of general bilge there’s a review of disaster spectacular Pompeii. In the news, the chaps discuss apes, reboots and Edward Norton’s credibility as a ‘soccer’ player. But THE BULK of the podcast is dedicated to the 1972 sci-fi classic Silent Running. So, plant a tree, pet a rabbit, use shovels and nukes to dispose of unwanted co-workers, bleed bright-red blood, re-program some crappy robots to play poker and spend a lot of time looking ponderous before DOWNLOADING THE JT MOVIE PODCAST, EPISODE 48, NOW!
This week on the JT Movie Podcast: abs, boobs, pensioners, aliens and Steve Guttenberg – something for everyone, surely. After a lengthy discussion on the finest movie scores thanks to maaaaany listener contributions, there’s a review of the guilty pleasure 300: Rise of an Empire. Jones reviews his ‘forfeit-film’, revealing his bemusement for John Carpenter’s Prince of Darkness. Taylorson offers a brief analysis of the classic Nosferatu, whilst Jones talks positively about Girl, Interrupted. But THE BULK of the podcast is dedicated to the 1985 family sci-fi classic Cocoon. So, find a swimming pool full of alien pods, be reinvigorated, get an old-man boner, witness a de-skinning, befriend a glowing alien, board Steve Guttenberg’s pleasure boat and get sucked up into space before DOWNLOADING THE JT MOVIE PODCAST, EPISODE 40, NOW!
It’s a bit of an odd one this week. Various blunders had to be overcome when recording the 38th episode of the JT Movie Podcast: a strange location, bouts of hysteria, the fact that we were talking into an unplugged microphone for 24 minutes (ever the professionals…) but we did it! There’s a discussion on ‘classic films we’ve not seen’ before a review of crotch-achingly dull The Monuments Men. Jones brings the controversy by declaring (wrongly) that Beverly Hills Cop is shite, before offering a favourable review Good Night, and Good. Taylorson chips in with a bemused assessment of Storytelling and an unexpectedly positive review of The Bucket List. But THE BULK of the podcast is dedicated to the 1981 science-fiction classic Escape From New York. So, don an eye patch, glide into a maximum-security prison city thing, covert some car chandeliers, find the president, try to look Adrienne Barbeau in the face and declare yourself ‘A-Number One, Duke of New York’ before DOWNLOADING THE JT MOVIE PODCAST, EPISODE 38, NOW!
It’s a bumper episode of the JT Movie Podcast this week, as the running time edges nearly two hours! Hey, just more of us to love. First up, a review of the supposedly-not-a-sequel-but-it-really-kinda-is chiller Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones. There’s a look at terrible comedy one of two – This Is 40 -before an appraisal of ‘roided-up running documentary 9.79*. Cinema hits a new low with terrible comedy two of two – Management – before spirits are lifted with a review of Australian druggie drama/Terry Wogan biopic Little Fish. We once again delve into the 1970s disaster genre with Rollercoaster and then embrace a love for musicals and rock and roll with Rock of Ages. Phewf. But THE BULK (well, THE REST) of the podcast is dedicated to the 1997 identity-theft sci-fi drama thriller thing Gattaca. So, win a suicidal swimming race, elongate your shins, plot a route to Titan, offer Uma Thurman a hair, fill a fridge with blood and urine, exfoliate, then blast off into outer space before DOWNLOADING THE JT MOVIE PODCAST, EPISODE 31, NOW!

This week on the JT Movie Podcast we plumb new depths. After dissolving into hysterics during a game of ‘mash movie star names together to create lolz’ there’s an assessment of the latest Jason Statham effort, Homefront. A middling review of domestic dramedy The Kids Are Alright is accompanied by positive reviews of Disney’s latest animated spectacle Frozen, 1920’s silent horror masterpiece The Golem and contemporary Irish musical Once. But THE BULK of the podcast is dedicated to the 1989 sci-fi disaster classic The Abyss.
