    Movie Moan - The Dredd Of Being A Master Looper

    It fills me with pride this week to introduce Movie Moan's second ever British participant, filmmaker, writer and journalist for '' Mr Ben Mortimer (who you can also catch on Twitter right here).

    And it's a good old wannabe critics roundtable this week as we spent 100 mins on back to back reviews of some of 2012's most interesting and divisive films to date.  So join me, Ben, Capt. Ed Hocken and Jamie Williams to discuss:-

    3:30 mins - 'Looper'; not the action packed blast of fun that a lazy critic poster quote would have you believe or a film that everybody loves.

    34:35 mins - 'Dredd'; since it was really Hocken's review that we all wanted to hear, join him and Ben as they spew more love on 2012's biggest surprise.

    51 mins - 'The Master'; Jamie and Hocken talk us through the latest acquired taste from Paul Thomas Anderson.

    70:50 mins - 'Bond 50'; Phil gives you the lowdown on whether the ultimate Blu Ray 007 boxset is worth upgrading from the previous thousand times you've bought all these bloody films.

    87:10 mins - 'The Perks Of Being A Wallflower'; Hocken works some overtime as he squeezes in one last little review.

    Movie Moan - Raiders Of The Unexpected Journey Into Darkness

    As we announced at the end of last week's show, Movie Moan is changing format slightly so no full-on regular video shows at the moment.  However, for those of you who prefer to listen to us at your computer, the good old Blip TV version is still available above each week.  Please forgive the no-frills version this week as we're still figuring out exactly what the presentation of the show is going to be from now on.

    As the fall 2012 season of Movie Moan begins, we kick things off with the wonderfully welcome re-appearance of writer, producer, director, Robert Meyer Burnett as he joins Phil and Jamie to discuss:

    1:45 mins - Bragging that Robert and Phil get to see 'Skyfall' on October 26th (together) and Jamie doesn't.

    10:40 mins - Jamie and Phil review 'Dredd', a four star piece of fried gold that deserved to make a lot more money than it did.

    37:10 mins - What does Robert, one of the few people we've talked to who didn't enjoy 'Star Trek' (2009), think of its sequel's rather odd title 'Into Darkness'?

    63:45 mins - New 'The Hobbit' trailer, new 'The Hobbit' rant.  Well it's been a while hasn't it?

    83:10 mins - As 'Raiders Of The Lost Ark' returns to the big screen and the 40 inch plasma screen with its blu ray debut, we look back on its impact and legacy back from a time when we had to wait more than three months for a film to come out on home video.

    Movie Moan - The Summer Ends With An Urp

    You'll all be doing it tomorrow.

    Tom Hardy's performance in 'Lawless' is at once brilliant and captivating, and also apparently the source of the next internet meme as he is unable to end a single sentence without burping like a frog. 

    On top of Jamie explaining what the hell that's all about, we end the summer in a big way with our final pieces on the summer blockbusters of old by giving you three of them in one show.

    7 mins - How Marvel Studios turned a prop into a piece of merchandise into a lawsuit.

    11:35 mins - Kristina and Jamie review 'Lawless' aka 'The Good, The Bad & The Urp'.

    24:45 mins - Jamie chooses his final classic summer movie of the season - 'Die Hard 2: Die Harder' (1990).

    44:15 mins - Kristina follows up with her final choice - 'Terminator 2: Judgement Day' (1991).

    72:15 mins - Ed ends the summer with his choice - 'X2: X-Men United' (2003).
