The Highlight Reel Show Preview: 21st October Edition

It’s that time of the week again to preview what is happening on this week’s The Highlight Reel that airs on SineFm at 11PM Monday 21st October.

Yeah sorry guys, we kind of missed writing the preview before the airing of yesterday’s The Highlight Reel on SineFM. Whose fault is it? Well we’re taking the South Park creators approach and saying that there was a power outage (there wasn’t, we just forgot it was Monday, silly us).

Anyway, let us crack on shall we? In this week’s episode (that you can catch right here on SineFM) you’ll find our review of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, which we believe is the greatest show ever made by Marvel that has an apostrophe, the word ‘Agents’ and also an acronym which starts with the letter ‘S’ in the title. But who are we to judge.

We also take a look at Tom “Mr Hanky” Hanks (the South Park references keep on coming in this preview for some reason) fighting pirates in his new film Captain Phillips (spoilers: He has got a beard in this film).

And finally in this week’s feature we expose Matt to the wonders of Adventure Time, will he like it? Well you will have to listen to the show to find out, but trust us this week’s show is a good ‘un.

The Highlight Reel Preview: 7th October Edition

Well first an apology, this is my first post on this blog for a long time! While Chris has been pumping out posts quite regularly, I just took the lazy fool’s option of just not posting anything. I’ll be honest, I do not really have an excuse for not posting, it’s not as if I can blame being at work for not being able to make posts, because I don’t even have a job. I’m just lazy!

But anyway all that aside, I thought I’d make my return to this blog by giving y’all a quick preview of this week’s episode of The Highlight Reel that broadcasts on Sine FM tonight at one hour to midnight (a kooky way of saying 11PM, ain’t I so kooky? #Iamahipster).

So what have we got for you? Well apart from the usual mix of talk about TV and film. We have got a review of the freshly released film by the brothers of Warner, called Prisoners, starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. Speaking of whom, Gyllenhaal, is someone I actually like to call Gee-Gee Haal as it is an apt nickname that I created for him, simply because one of the films he’s most famous for contains him riding bareback on a horse, which he does in the extremely big gay flick…Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (What? What did you think I was referencing?) Anyway, what’s the film about? Well basically Wolverine and Jarhead are chasing a naughty bloke who has nicked a kid. Trailer below:

 

And our feature this week, sees us taking a look at the brilliant Breaking Bad, which as I’m sure you are aware BB (Breaking Bad, not Big Brother), is perhaps one of the greatest things ever created and unfortunately it ended last week. Therefore in this week’s feature we take a special retrospective look at the thing that made Bryan Cranston, or BryCra as I like to call him (yes I am trying to fit as many homemade nicknames into this preview as I can #Iamahipsterx2), one of the most famous bald(…ish) men on the planet. It’s a tribute to Breaking Bad if you will, so join us tonight at 11pm or anytime over the week on Sine FM for our weekly radio show The Highlight Reel.

…Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand Scene.

The Highlight Reel Preview: 15th July Edition

It’s that time of the week again for a look at what is coming up in our latest episode of the The Highlight Reel that broadcasts every Monday at 11PM on Sine FM, or you can catch it anytime over the week if you press this shiny red link! (Do it!)

But anyway, what’s in the show? Well I’m glad you asked, (well I asked under the guise of you, but anyway) in this week’s show, we’re taking a look at a prequel to one of the greatest animated movies of all-time: The Lilo & Stitch prequel. Just Joking! We’re of course taking a look at Monsters University. We cast our eyes (or should that be eye) upon the return of the second most famous green testicle on legs, Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) as he and his future friend Sulley (John Goodman) go to University and learn how to be “scarers” (and just in case you are wondering why Mike is the second most famous green testicle, the most famous is of course Hitler’s loose one, but I can neither confirm or deny as to whether his testicle does have legs or not, so I’ll err on the side of caution and say that it probably does).

But is it a good film? Well you will have to listen to the show to see what we think. However, I do apologise if i used one too many genitalia jokes in the last paragraph and I take them all back, I also promise that you will not hear any more penis jokes in the rest of this preview. So why not take a look at the trailer of Monsters University and see how this one eyed monster is doing (…I’m so sorry):

We also have a review for the new American TV drama: Ray Donovan. It stars Liev Schreiber as a “fixer” called Ray Donovan who battles to fix the problems of the rich and famous while struggling to fix his own. Take a look at the trailer below:

And finally, this week’s feature sees us taking a look at one of the strangest genres that has ever came to the screen, these films are what we have called ‘Nanny movies’. They are the films where famous tough guys look after little kids in films like: The Pacifier, The Tooth Fairy and Kindergarten Cop, and we ask the question, “who are these films actually made for?”

So for all that and more, tune in tonight at 11PM, or anytime over the week on Sine Fm, to have a listen to our show The Highlight Reel where we take a look at the weird and wonderful about film and TV today. So why not give us a listen? Go on! You know you want to!

The Highlight Reel Preview: 8th July Edition

Hello guys! It is that time of the week again to have a quick preview of what is to come in this week’s episode of The Highlight Reel, airing Monday nights on Sine Fm. So what’s happening in this week’s episode? Well this is actually my first proper episode co-presenting with Chris and in it we will review the latest Magical Crime Thriller (talk about a niche market): Now You See Me, which stars a whole raft of stars such as Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman and everyone’s favourite Michael Cera impersonator: Jesse Eisenberg.

We are also having a look at the returning BBC drama Luther, starring Dj Driis (A.K.A. Idris Elba) as the troubled detective John Luther, and you’ll find a teaser trailer of this new season below:

And finally, if you have already seen Chris’ great article just below (go on give the page a little scroll down), you’ll know that this week’s main feature sees us taking a look at something so terrible, so utterly, utterly, terrible, that some of them almost managed to killed off a whole genre before the genre had even had a chance to start getting good. We’re taking a look at the disastrous times for Comic Book movies that was the 1990’s.

So for a quick fix of the latest film and television news, catch our show at 11pm on Sine Fm, Monday the 8th July, or anytime over the week. So go on give it a go, you won’t regret it! (However, you would regret it if you pressed this link – Ooooooh! The tempation!)
