New Podcast is here at long last so let me just say...
...We're back, after a mini break while Jay was busy having all types of man flu. Podcast number 19 lands in whichever way you are listening to us today with some webslinging action in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, we go back to College with 22 Jump Street and finish with A Million Ways To Die in the West which give you all the best jokes in it's 2 min trailer.
We're back with Podcast 18, a little later than normal but forgive us we've both been a bit busy. Oddly enough we recorded this in the morning times and we even stay on the subject of each of the films for a change.
This weeks podcast we begin with the big one, Marvels next outing for their boy in the Star spangled banner, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Next we check out the newest film from Jonathan Glazer with Under The Skin with Scarlett Johansson taking the lead and finish with a hot sticky climax with Nymphomaniac. Which has Douchebag of the moment Shia Labeouf.
The RKO Pictures logo once conjured up feelings of anticipation among cinemagoers around the world but today its history is largely relegated to the pages of history books. However, as Monocle’s Ben Rylan learns there are still a few clues left for eager Los Angeles sidewalk explorers to discover as they stroll along Melrose Avenue.
Life has found a way. Again. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the fifth in the Jurassic Park series, has been roaring in the faces of cinemagoers around the world for the last few weeks, and here at last is our spoiler special podcast.
First up, director J.A. Bayona tells Ben Travis how he pulled off some of the movie's spookiest sequences. Then, writer/producer/director of Jurassic World, Colin Trevorrow, talks to Nick de Semlyen about crafting the sequel to the (then) fourth biggest film of all time. Both interviews are spoilerific, naturally.
Ah, now eventually you do plan to have Team Empire discuss Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom on your, on your Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom podcast, right? Hello? Yes, that's right, as Nick and Ben are joined by Chris Hewitt in the podbooth to tackle listeners' questions and praise the virtues of Gunnar Eversol.

This is a series of podcasts based on the collections of The Bill Douglas Cinema Museum at the University of Exeter, which is the leading museum of moving image history in the UK. In our second post, we speak to Lisa Stead, senior lecturer in Film Studies at the University of Exeter, about the history of cinemas in Exeter and the changing habits of cinemagoers throughout the 20th century.
They’re heeere….. Emotive, grandiose and thoroughly haunting, Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper's phenomenal paranormal picture transcends this mortal plane in terms of strategic storytelling and iconic imagery. Despite controversies regarding creative control and purportedly carrying a curse, the film has gone on to become a cult classic, inspiring generations of cinemagoers while setting the benchmark for haunted house thrillers. Sue looks at the spooky suburban shocker, chatting angelic ankle biters, pint-sized psychics and, dare I even say it, clowns. *Shudder* We’ll also be checking out the fantastic track God Sent Rain (You Sent Blood & Piss) from Sludge metal duo St Fenton The Tainted. So open your mind, beware The Beast and stay away from the light. Clear your mind, it knows what scares you and it knows too much already...
