What's wrong with movies these days? Tune in and find out. We heard music from the following:

Risky Business - Tangerine Dream (1983)
Fright Night - Brad Fiedel (1985)
Doom - Clint Mansell (2005)

This show should not be missed. The Gaffer and I had a bit of role reversal this week. We generally tend to agree on many things, and he tends to be the more crotchety of the two, but we had very different opinions on Thor. You'll hear all about. Seriously folks download this sucker, if anything but for the review of Hobo with a Shotgun and the epic music we played this

Starship Troopers - Basil Poledouris (1997)
13th Warrior - Jerry Goldsmith (1999)

This week we lost a cinema legend, Sidney Lumet. In this episode we discussed some of his works, played a little of his music and sent him out properly. We also reviewed the film Hanna, talked about float trips, and used way more innuendos that we probably should have. Hopefully your kids don't ask too many questions. They've probably heard worse at school anyway. We heard music from the following films:

Murder on the Orient Express - Richard Bennett (1974)
Pee Wee's Big Adventure - Danny Elfman (1985)
Serpico - Mikis Theodorakis (1973)
Deliverance - Eric Weissberg (1972)
