69. The Mummy (2017)

Gareth and Andy are joined by special guest Aidan Belizaire, to unravel the creature feature that is Alex Kurtzman's The Mummy (2017), the first epic monster movie in Universal’s Dark Universe. If you don't know what Universal's Dark Universe is, well it's a collection of cross-media monster-movie related films, tv shows, books and video games that in a uniquely bold creative choice for a cinematic universe consists of just one film. But is this Tom Cruise starring horror-blockbuster too much for us to take? Listen on to find out. 

Gareth and Andy are back with the last of our Best Forgotten Movies Lost Episodes. And this time we're jacking into a world of well-choreographed fight scenes, mind-bending philosophies and tear-inducing disappointment.

But is this sequel a star too far for a dying franchise or have we unfairly treated this space adventure like fresh bantha poodoo? Listen to part one of this two-part Star Wars special to find out! 

September 25, 2020

65. Deep Rising

September 18, 2020

64. The Lawnmower Man

Pierce Brosnan lures children and simple folk into his basement with the promise of a good time in (legally not) Stephen King's The Lawnmower Man; a film so bad the man behind Dreamcatcher had his name forcibly removed from the title. But do Gareth and Andy find this 90's virtual-reality thriller virtually unwatchable? Listen on to find out. 

September 11, 2020

63. Tremors

Gareth and Andy are back and they've got worms! That's right, we're reviewing Ron Underwood's Land Jaws... I mean Tremors! But have we unearthed a B-Movie classic worthy of its cult status or is this a bad mother-humper that deserves to be buried? Listen on to find out!

September 4, 2020

62. Disney Live Action Remakes

This week Gareth and Andy are joined by special guest Aidan Belizaire, for first of our new topic-based episodes.

This week we'll be discussing Disney's live-action remakes, from 101 Dalmatians and Aladdin to The Lion King and Mulan. But are there diamonds in the rough of this creatively bankrupt cinematic trend? Listen on to find out!

Gareth and Andy return for a Bird based double-bill as we spend an episode talking about a couple of memorable peckers!

Listen on to find out...

Gareth and Andy embark on a most unprecedented expedition to the after-life with everyone's favourite dumb rockers, Bill & Ted. But do we find this Bogus Journey a hell of a time or is it simply a hellish time? Listen on to find out.

August 14, 2020

59. The Abyss

For this weeks episode Gareth and Andy are swapping the darkness, tension and Alien beings that populate space, with the darkness, tension and Alien beings that populate the ocean as we take a deep dive into James Cameron's THE ABYSS! But do we find a treasure worth bringing to the surface or should this thriller be left to rot with the Titanic? Listen on to find out!

August 7, 2020

58. Alien: Covenant

This week Gareth and Andy are venturing into the cosmos to ask 'in space, can anyone hear you complain?' That's right, we're watching Ridley Scott's ALIEN COVENANT.

July 31, 2020

57. Prometheus

This week Gareth and Andy unearth another unreleased Best Forgotten Movies episode with their review of Ridley Scott's Alien: Dicktease. I mean, PROMETHEUS. But is this divisive sci-fi a shining star in the dark or a quality black hole? Listen on to find out...

July 24, 2020

56. Toys

For this weeks episode, Gareth and Andy are looking at the cartoonish 1992 Christmas released film starring beloved improv actor Robin Williams and featuring a character called 'Al'.

July 10, 2020

54. Willow

You've seen The Lord of the Rings, binged Game of Thrones and taken a glance at any fantasy novel from the past 70 years, now watch Willow! A film that's all of those things, and less! Gareth and Andy venture into the realm of Lucasfilm high fantasy to ask 'should we have watched Strange Magic instead?' 

But is Ron Howard's Willow an often overlooked childhood classic? Listen on to find out...

July 3, 2020

53. Cats

Gareth and Andy plunge into the depths of madness, as they review Cats. But is this far from purrfect feline farce the catastrophe its reputation has led us to believe? Yes. Yes, it is. 

But listen on to hear our hosts lose their minds over this bonkers musical anyway...

June 26, 2020

52. Titan AE

Gareth and Andy present a blast from the past with the first of our Lost Best Forgotten Movies Episodes. This week we review Titan AE, an animated sci-fi epic that blew up the earth before bombing at the box office.

June 19, 2020

51. Soldier

This week Gareth and Andy sift through cinematic trash as they review Paul WS Anderson's SOLDIER (1998). But is this Kurt Russell starring Blade Runner spin-off a diamond in the rust, or should we have left Soldier on the junk pile? Listen on to find out! 

Gareth and Andy take a stroll through everyone's favourite otherworldly murder-town. That's right, we're peaking behind the curtain in our review of TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME.

But that's not all! We'll also be discussing the latest news on the Justice League Snyder cut and which Director's Cuts we'd like to see in the future. 

June 5, 2020

49. Hannibal

Gareth Green and Andrew Raphael return to the microphone booth for the first episode of their rebranded series POPCORN DIGEST (formally Best Forgotten Movies). On our new series, we'll be discussing a variety of films and various cinematic happenings in the world of movies.

We begin with a look at an apocalyptic wasteland ravaged by death and destruction, where individuals basic needs are scrapped over, tooth and claw. But that’s enough about the Coronavirus as we’ll be talking about MAD MAX BEYOND THUNDERDOME. 

If you loved the worst aspects of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit movies, then WARCRAFT: THE BEGINNING might just be the film for you. Does Duncan Jones' much-maligned pixel-pusher overcome the curse of the video-game adaption? Gareth and Andy investigate:

Just in time for Black Panther and the home-video release of Thor Ragnarok, Gareth and Andy return to discuss Marvel's near-forgotten rage filled monster-mash; THE INCREDIBLE HULK. Listen as we ask Marvel to not make these movies mediocre, because we won't like them when they're mediocre.

44. Last Action Hero

Gareth and Andy escape to the movies to watch Arnold Schwarzenegger have a mid-life crisis in the meta-action adventure romp, LAST ACTION HERO. But will this love letter to the action genre (from wire-tapping enthusiast and genre legend John McTiernan) survive it's explosive reputation? Armed with nothing more than bad impressions, we jump into the bullet-storm to find out!

November 4, 2016

43. The Thing (2011)

Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Joel Edgerton inspect each other's fillings in THE THING. No not that THING...Matthijs van Heijningen Jr's THE THING Prequel from 2011 (oh that one). But does this imitation deserve to be a bridge for John Carpenter's classic film, or should it be incinerated and left out in the cold. Gareth and Andy investigate (each other's fillings)...

October 23, 2016

42. AvP: Alien v Predator

One is a slimy monster, the other a ruthless killer and the two don't get on at all! But enough about the presidential election, it's time for the latest episode of Best Forgotten Movies! In a series that brought us cinematic greats from the likes of Ridley Scott, James Cameron, and John McTiernan, comes AVP: ALIEN V PREDATOR, straight from the creative mind that brought us Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil.

But does Paul WS Anderson's shlock monster-mash put up a worthy fight or is this a dud that should have been sacrificed for the hunt? Gareth and Andy don their gloves to find out...

October 7, 2016

41. Futureworld

Peter Fonda is Chuck Seventies-Man, a reporter who cottons on to the fact the company who manufacture serial killer theme-park robots might be up to no good. That's right, we're taking on the genre-bending sci-fi sequel to Michael Crichton's cult-classic, FUTUREWORLD! Will we survive our stay or is this roller-coaster ride in need of decommissioning. Gareth and Andy are booking in to find out!

September 28, 2016

40. Wild Wild West

Will Smith is hired by President Kevin Kline in unconvincing make up to join forces with US Marshall Kevin Kline in unconvincing make-up as we venture back to a time of cowboys, gunslingers and... giant mechanical spiders?! That's right, we're drawing our guns on Barry Sonnenfeld's big budget train-wreck WILD WILD WEST. But has more been made of this genre-bending western or can not even Kevin Kline's make-up kit disguise this tone-deaf bomb? Gareth and Andy investigate...

September 9, 2016

39. Terminator Salvation

Christian Bale doesn't keep his cool and Captain of Charisma Sam "I was in Avatar guys" Worthington is meant to be the main character (before rewrites) in McG String's TERMINATOR SALVATION. Yet another redundant attempt to relaunch the franchise, does this film of metallic fart noises have what it takes to rise above the wreckage of the ailing series? Gareth and Andy try and get beneath the skin to find out...

Orlando Bloom is the carved wooden statue of Balian of Ibelin in Ridley Scott's KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.  But is this sprawling religious epic an under-appreciated masterpiece, a butchered and unengaging bore or perhaps even both? Gareth and Andy investigate...

37. The Bourne Legacy

Pug-faced action star Jeremy Renner is not Matt Damon in Tony Gilroy's THE BOURNE LEGACY, a film that trades in spine tingling tension for 'action' and talking...lots of serious talking. But does this spin-off escape the shadow of its predecessors or does it lack the chemical enhancements to get it through to the end? Gareth and Andy try their hardest to remember this strange oddity in the Bourne series.

William Shatner and the Enterprise crew return to action only to blow up God in the much maligned Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. Set your phasers to fun as Gareth and Andy ask whether Star Trek V: So Very Tired proves that anything Nimoy can do, can Shatner do better? Spoilers: It doesn't.

Tom Cruise tries to control his all-round weird behaviour whilst acting in Steven Spielberg's WAR OF THE WORLDS. But does this 2005 post-9/11 take on the classic HG Wells Novel have what it takes to rise above Mr Cruise's antics, or will it just suddenly catch a cold and die? Gareth and Andy are here to investigate.

Jeremy Irons, Bruce Payne and Marlon Wayans seriously chew up some poor looking scenery in Courtney Solomon's role playing nightmare DUNGEONS & DRAGONS. But does this train wreck fantasy have any redeeming qualities or...wow that was the worst CGI Dragon i've ever seen!! Gareth and Andy look back at this curiosity from the year 2000...so you don't have to.

Timothy Dalton as 007 is out for vengeance over his best mate's wife's chinchilla in John Glen's LICENCE TO KILL. But does this harder edged 16th Bond adventure still deserve the mixed reception it had on release, or is this a film that could literally make your head explode? In this special extended edition of BFM Gareth and Andy investigate this overlooked Bond thriller.

May 27, 2016

32. Strange Days

Ralph Fiennes would like to 'Jack you in' and Angela Bassett is more concerned with 'right here, right now' in Kathryn Bigelow's STRANGE DAYS. But is this tale of recorded memories one to hold dear, or does it need to be thrown onto the pile of forgotten Minidiscs? Bad wig wearers Gareth and Andy plug in to find out...

Sean Connery & Wig star as Sean Connery in Stephen Norrington's THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN. Other out-of-work actors co-star as ye olde Avengers in this messy action adventure romp. But is there any worth to be had in a concept that should work so well? Gareth and Andy investigate...

April 29, 2016

30. Tomorrowland

George Clooney falls in love with creepy robot girls and Britt Robertson pretends to be a teenager for no reason in Brad Bird's TOMORROWLAND. But does this tale of dreaming of a better tomorrow become everything we want it to be, or does it just become an elitist doomsday machine? Listen on as Gareth & Andy find out...

April 4, 2016

29. Demon Seed

Julie Christie fights off the sexual advances of her own computer controlled house ... yep you heard us right, in Donald Cammell's DEMON SEED. But does this bonkers premise hit all the right places or should we close our pod bay doors on this 70s curiosity? Gareth and his trusty robot companion Andrew-5000 break out of the box to find out...

Christopher Reeve and Gene Hackman have a day out at Milton Keynes Train Station in Sidney J. Furie's SUPERMAN IV: THE QUEST FOR PEACE. Margot Kidder tries to keep it together (herself, not her performance) whilst everyone else tries to work around endless padding and numerous budget cuts in this Poundland entry of the Superman saga. But does this Cannon Films blockbuster deserve all its bad press or is it ready to be tossed into the sun? Gareth and Andy find out...

Rufus Sewell stars as the Bourne Confusion, trying to rack up enough points in the Crystal Maze for Richard O'Brien in Alex Proyas' epic DARK CITY. But is this lost odyssey worth remembering or should it be wiped permanently from our minds. Listen on as Gareth and Andy find out...

Bob Hoskins plays numerous Italian stereotypes, John Leguizamo falls in love with a dinosaur Princess, and Dennis Hopper pretends to be a T-Rex in this early 90s attempt at a Video Game adaptation. Gareth, Andy and Special Guest Aidan Belizaire find out whether this strange concoction should be granted a second chance or flushed down the movie toilet.

February 8, 2016

25. X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Huge Jacked Man and Liev Schreiber's bag lady claws star in Gavin the Hood's X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, a film so pointless that Fox have tried to retcon it for the last 6 years. Ryan Reynolds also gets his first chance at playing Deadpool, but in doing so murders a lot of African people. Gareth and Andy look back on this black sheep of the X-Men film series to find out what went wrong.

January 25, 2016

24. Lost In Space

William Hurt can barely hold back the tears whilst starring in LOST IN SPACE, Stephen Hopkin's reimagining of the 60s sci-fi tv series. Mimi Rogers kind of supports, Gary Oldman camps it up, and Matt LeBlanc checks how everyone's doing in this 90s bomb. But is this tale of a family lost in the cosmos a rip-roaring adventure, or just a limp sausage? Gareth and Andy investigate...

January 11, 2016

23. The Shadow

The World's Greatest Actor - the one and only Alec Baldwin stars in the pulp adaption THE SHADOW. Penelope Ann Miller, John Lone and Ian McKellen all struggle to stay in the shadow of Tim Curry's acting in Russell Mulcahy's half-baked caper. Will The Shadow get to the bottom of what evil lurks in the hearts of men, or will it come out with a beard made of pubes? Gareth and Andy find out...

If you loved the worst aspects of RETURN OF THE JEDI then you'll love the Ewok Adventures CARAVAN OF COURAGE and BATTLE FOR ENDOR. Gareth and Andy round off their Star Wars season by looking back at these two furry TV Movies.
