TV & Film
Each week we pick a movie that at least one of the team hasn't seen before and discuss it, with varying degrees of insight.

As movie lovers with slightly different viewpoints we've often recommended something that one of the others wouldn't have otherwise known about – this is our way of sharing that opportunity with you.

We hope you enjoy the show and find some new movies you may not have seen, or perhaps rediscover the delights of an old favourite long overdue for a rewatch.

Life... finds a way. And so do Cross and Gordy, this time on the back of an underwhelming Fallen Kingdom viewing we decided to go back to where it all began! Hope you enjoy the episode, please leave us a rating on iTunes and share with your friends.

View episode

Audience selection time, and it's thanks to Campbell Read this week that we get to revisit Ridley Scott's Alien.

A movie that presumably everybody is well versed in, and if not, that's something that needs to be rectified! Hope you enjoy the podcast and let us know what you think by way of Twitter and Facebook. And leave us a comment and review on iTunes too!

Remember, in space no one can hear Cross scream... or something.

View episode

Naturally, Cross must follow up Maniac Cop with something suitably contrary. So here we have the 2000 release Bring It On.

Comedy and cheerleaders, what could possibly go wrong with such a podcast!

Hope you enjoy the episode! Please do leave a comment on Facebook, catch us on Twitter and leave a rating on iTunes. And most of all, let your movie fan friends know about us.

Back to our usual output. An old movie that we want to roll before the mic. This week Gordy throws Matt Cordell into the ring with the William Lustig directed Maniac Cop

A good ol' slice of 80s 'nostalgia'. Hope you enjoy the episode, and as always we appreciate your support, your iTunes reviews and your sharing with friends!

Another day, another Star Wars flick it seems! Opinions have been all over the place both in the '3 Men' studio and further afield. This time it's the turn of Han, Chewie, Lando and a good few new additions including Emilia Clarke's Kira.

We speak candidly and all manner of spoilers so tread carefully... so much so it's better to probably go watch it and then come back and hang with us. Let us know what you think and absolutely rate us on iTunes and share with your friends. Punch it!

View episode

We're still the Ace Degenerates! Just had to give an episode over to the new YouTube series Cobra Kai. A follow up of sorts that we've all been waiting for!

This is arguably the most fun we've had recording a podcast. And all we'll say is that if you have even the slightest modicum of love for The Karate Kid, that you'll LOVE this new series! And you'll most likely LOVE the pod too. Cardigan = Winning!

Please do leave feedback, give us an iTunes rating and also tell your friends.

A little bit of a different episode this week. Gordy and Cross set aside their differences from last week to get into a (somewhat) rambling discussion on why we just love movies!

I'm sure you'll agree with at least a bit of the chat here and where you don't let us know why not! Hope you enjoy it! In the meantime, look forward to the next few weeks where we'll be hitting up some old flicks once more. Please share, rate and tell your mates too!

View episode

Lets Get Ready To Rumble... It's TIME! A face off for the ages beckon. For longer than Gordy cares to remember, Cross has banged on about Thin Red being better than Private Ryan.

So we decided to commit it to the podcast and settle it once and for all!

We hope you enjoy it, and we'd love to hear which side of the fence you fall on? Please share with others and please leave a review if you can too. We'll be back next week, if murder wasn't committed during this episode.

A Quiet Place is not being too quiet at the Box Office. So the '3 Men' take a look, and not so quietly. Which way will they roll on this massively popular new release and the associated cinema etiquette that appears to be associated with it. 

Starring real life couple, John Krasinski (who also directs and writes) and Emily Blunt as well as the simply awesome Millicent Simmonds, it's worth checking out and it's definitely worth having a listen to us pair! Hope you enjoy and please rate and share as you see appropriate.

View episode

Gordy and Cross take a dabble in the world we now live with the Netflix release Alex Garland's 'Annihilation'. It wasn't afforded a cinema release beyond the States and came straight to instant streaming. 

Have a listen and see what we made of the movie and also this Brave New World of movie releases. Hope you enjoy the episode! Please feel free to share us with your friends and leave us a review on iTunes.

Gordy and Cross recently went to see Rob Schneider live during the Glasgow Comedy Festival. Upon meeting him, we asked him what movie of his he'd like us to do a podcast on and he chose 'Big Stan'. When duty calls... the Men answer! Prison Rape Comedy at it's finest!

It was a movie we'd never heard of, and one he described as really difficult to get made, have a listen and see what you think? If you could share our content and leave a review on iTunes it would be most appreciated. 

View episode

Gordy and Cross escape the mundane constraints of modern life with a trip to the Oasis courtesy of Steven Spielberg and Ernest Cline.

They ponder digital brothels, avatars and licensing issues.

Hope you enjoy the episode and as always let us know what you think and share with your friends!

View episode

So with the impending home media release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi we thought we should throw out this episode from the archive.

Gordy and Cross both hit The Last Jedi one more time. There's been an opinion shift in The Force, guess who?

Hope you enjoy the episode! Please share, review and tell your friends as you see fit.

May The Force be with you, always.

This is the second week running we've done an Audience Selection. And you know what... why not!

Lynn Montgomery-Hawke selected this little Richard Linklater ditty from 1995. Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Céline (Julie Delpy) cross paths and spend just 24 hours together in Vienna.

She was worried about what Gordy would make of it, however she suggested she was sure Cross would like it. How will they roll with it? Hope you enjoy the episode Lynn, and also to everyone else out there, we had a great time recording it!

As always, please review us on iTunes and tell your friends!

Another audience selection this week. So it's a thank you Dave Brindle for his nice little selection of some very early Spielberg action with Duel. Cross and Gordy talk it out and as usual end up off piste at many different points. Though a thoroughly enjoyable chat it was. Hope you all enjoy the episode and especially Dave!

View episode

Gordy and Cross have both hit Black Panther in recent weeks, but also had the fortune to hit Blade on 35mm as part of the Glasgow Film Festival.

It felt apt to compare and contrast and discuss the latest Marvel superhero flick! With the added cultural significance that seems to be in tow with it. Hope you enjoy!

As usual, share, review, tell your friends and feedback to us your thoughts! x

One of Gordy's favourite movies of all time comes to the 3 Man Table this week. It's one Cross had seen at release, however he'd forgotten enough of it to warrant a revisit.

Based on Bret Easton Ellis' novel of the same name we tackle The Rules of Attraction. Written and Directed by Roger Avary and starring a post-Dawson's Creek Van Der Beek. As well as Shannyn Sossamon, Ian Somerhalder and Kip Pardue.

Moral choices and life experiences come into the discussions as well as the usual nonsense. As usual, any feedback, reviews, comment and suggestions for future output is always appreciated! Happy listening folks.

At some point in almost all our lives we've experienced frustration with our work colleagues. Maybe The Belko Experiment offers the perfect solution to address that aggro... In any case Gordy and Cross get into it, chatting over this movie from the director of Wolf Creek and the writer of Guardians of the Galaxy.

View episode

As Arnie said he'd be back, so did we. So here we are, kicking of the new season with a retrospective look at the Terminator Franchise (we only recognise two of them as Canon).

More specifically Gordy and Cross have differing opinions on which of the two is the superior. It's great to be back, we hope you enjoy!

Gordy and Cross, as they did with The Force Awakens, hit the midnight showing of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. What would the verdict be?

 

***Disclaimer*** Gordy has now seen it twice and his verdict has changed significantly.

View episode

 Gordy and Cross hit up the newly released Blade Runner 2049 as part of our ongoing Hot Take series.

Both fans of the original 1982 movie, how would this new Denis Villeneuve effort be received?

*SPOILERS EVERYWHERE*

View episode

"Be open minded." Cross said. Gordy was open minded.

Did that lead to Cross success with his choice of Hudson Hawk, a Bruce Willis movie from the early 90s that had passed Gordy by.

View episode

Audience selection once again, and it's thanks to Kirsty McGregor who has requested that Gordy and Cross get together to watch What We Do In The Shadows. 

Directed by Taika Waititi (Wilderpeople and Thor: Ragnarok) it follows the daily lives of a group of vampiric flatmates and the struggles they face.

Would this mockumentary go down better with Gordy than Spinal Tap did? And Cross was already a convert... would it be a united thumbs up?

View episode

Gordy and Cross revisit peak Cameron and Schwarzenegger with a big screen outing for T2 3D!

They were both fans (who wouldn't be) but how would this reassessment pan out?

View episode

Cross and Gordy venture to the Australian suburbs of 1987 to 'enjoy' the inspired by real life Hounds of Love. Last time we journeyed to Australia was for Wake In Fright. Will this be any less traumatic...

View episode

Baby Driver has been quite the success story as things have turned out. A few weeks ago and fresh from having seen it, Gordy and Cross talked it out. Gordy has generally taken a stance against Edgar Wright considering him vastly overrated amongst other things, whilst Cross has been a staunch fan and loving most, if not all of the output. Which side of the fence will they fall on with this one?

View episode

Criminally overlooked on its initial release, Jonathan Demme's spirited yuppie nightmare gem features early turns from Melanie Griffith and Jeff Daniels, and also features Ray Liotta in his screen debut. Will Gordy Cross be wild about it..?

View episode

Gordy naturally slides from Weird Science to Martha Marcy May Marlene. Elizabeth Olsen delivered a remarkable performance in her debut. And John Hawkes is sublime. With some cult dynamics and a little speculation that it's a way of life Cross would like (minus the most unsavoury moments... obviously)

It wasn't widely seen, but very much well worth a watch. And Gordy with a *GOOD MOVIE ALERT* klaxon (Cheers Mitch! But all my movies are AWESOME) it's well worth a listen. 

View episode

Cross invites Mitch and Gordy to partake in some uneasy laughs with his selection of Chris Morris' Four Lions. A comedy about terrorism..!

View episode

Mitch invites Gordy Cross to experience some old school Hollywood class in the shape of George Cukor's timeless tale of celebrity culture, 'art vs money' and the search for true love, as Cary Grant 's C.K. Dexter Haven crashes the wedding of his ex-wife Tracy Lord (Katharine Hepburn). Will they be raising a toast, or raising objections?

View episode

Chosen by listener Callie Howard. A feel-good favourite of hers it's a riotous tale of girls behaving badly, and she expects Gordy to titter, Cross to blush and Mitch to get the rage. How did her predictions pan out..?

View episode

Gordy takes us to 1985 and 15 year old adolescence. John Hughes' Weird Science is generally speaking fondly remembered in all quarters... will it be so for Mitch and Cross too?

And at the end of the day, if you were 15 and had the capability to create your own woman, this is how you'd roll? No?

View episode

Gordy and Mitch hop on to Cross' Train To Busan. Chaos ensues... But is it agreeable chaos?

View episode

Pascal Laugier's arthouse torture-porn movie has divided audiences and critics alike since its release in 2008. Will it unite the Three Men?

Continuing our discussion of the films of John Carpenter, this week we cover his career from The Thing up to the present day.

View episode

As so many of John Carpenter's movies were ineligible for inclusion we thought we'd just talk about all of them instead. This week we manage to get from the beginning of his career all the way up to Escape From New York.

It's the grand finale to awards season. The biggest night of the year in Hollywood. It all went a bit awry with the Best Picture award. What did Gordy, Cross Mitch make of it all..?

Please note, there are SPOILERS throughout.

Also, Mitch has since seen Moonlight, and it is very good indeed - best Best Picture winner since No Country For Old Men. In his opinion. Which is correct.

Bill Paxton passed away on 25 February at the age of 61. He has been a huge part of our movie watching experience over the last thirty years, so join us this week in a celebration of the great man's work.

He will be greatly missed.

Hi, I'm Gordy. Wanna play?

That's the question that the precocious Gordy has asked of Mitch (known to suffer from Pediophobia) and Cross. We go to the origin story of our favourite pint sized killer doll. The many sequels have become notorious for a variety of reasons, but how does the original stand up to the 3 Men scrutiny? Will they all be friends till the end?

View episode

1984 brought us many fine things but This is Spinal Tap surely ranks among the finest. Its genuine charm and affection for the subject matter is a joy to behold even as they exploit with subtle wit every code and convention the documentary genre and the 80's heavy Rock scene has to offer. Gordy, of course, hadn't seen it. Surely he, being a Hard Rock fan, would love it.....?

View episode

Adapted from Poet Laureate Ted Hughes' book, The Iron Man, and directed by Brad Bird, this week's movie never really found the audience it deserved on initial release. Mitch loves it to bits, but what will Gordy and Cross make of it?

Christmas is nearly upon us, so Gordy felt it appropriate to bring Gomorrah to the table, the 2008 film by Matteo Garrone, based on the book by Roberto Saviano. Focussing on the Casalesi clan, a crime syndicate within the Neapolitan Camorra, we follow five different story threads of a bigger picture. Mitch Cross hadn't seen it, what would they make of it all?

View episode

Marking the feature film debuts of both Ethan Hawke and River Phoenix, 1985's Explorers failed spectacularly during initial release. Marred by studio interference it remains one of Joe Dante's lesser films, though it is considered by some as a minor cult classic! Cross brings it to the table to find out whether it deserves a place in our collective '80s hearts.

View episode

We journey back to 1960's Paris where there's been a murder at a country mansion. It would appear to be an open and shut case, but bumbling detective Jacques Clouseau thinks otherwise.

The Pink Panther movies are childhood favourites of Mitch. Cross is a fan. But what will first-timer Gordy make of it..?

View episode

Our latest Audience Selection takes us on a brutal school trip with a class of Japanese teenagers battling each other to the death. Is this just a tasteless gorefest or something more? And how would our Three Men fare under similar circumstances..?

View episode

Francis Veber was invited to remake his own French movie Les Fugitifs for Hollywood. This resulted in Martin Short taking on the roles as would be bank robber meeting seasoned con Nick Nolte. Which in turn resulted in Gordy bringing this childhood favourite to the table.

Cross was already an established fan, but would it pass the Mitch Laugh Count Test? Perhaps more crucially, does it feature the mute child trope that Gordy (allegedly) loves so dearly?

View episode

Cross invites Gordy Mitch on a hazy, rambling and dope-fogged detective yarn circa 1970 courtesy of Paul Thomas Anderson. Based on the Thomas Pynchon novel of the same name the film stars Joaquin Phoenix, Katherine Waterston Josh Brolin. Spoiler alert, two out of our three enjoyed it - can you guess who didn't...?

Mitch has selected this testosterone-fuelled British thriller starring Stanley Baker as a tough as nails truck driver pitting his nerve against Patrick McGoohan.
