It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these! How things have changed since I last did. Well, not really. Apart from the infestation of gremlins lurking in the Sine FM studios, which kindly treated me to a power cut just as I finished recording the show. Cue a stream of swear words that would make Malcolm Tucker blush, until, mercifully, the file was recovered (Adobe Audition is my new favourite thing for doing so). Thankfully, I only had to re-record a small part, and not the entire hour which would no doubt have been an incoherent stream of anger, ending with several murders.
Anyway, on this week’s murder-free edition of The Highlight Reel:
- There’s a look at the biggest blockbuster of the year so far, Iron Man 3.
- There’s a review of the 124th biggest blockbuster of the year (probably) The Lords of Salem.
- I also review Hannibal, with some fava beans and a nice chianti.
- And, in the main feature of the show, I pick out some of the highlights of this years’ Sundance London film festival, and also some cows.
All that plus a roundup of news from the world of film and TV, with a rockin’ (I left the g out to convey how much it rocks) soundtrack of Nico Vega, The Cure, Blur and plenty more besides. Be sure to catch it on Sine FM, Monday at 11pm GMT, or at any time over the week on sinefm.com. You know you almost definitely probably want to.
