The Hateful Eight and X-Files Upodcast

A Tarantino way to start the new year and an obvious choice for UPOD.  The boys are back in the hotseat and talk about 2 highly anticipated events: the return of the X-files (are you under the age of 30?  Does the X-files mean anything to you?) after a seriously long lay-off and Quentin Tarantino’s snowbound epic The Hateful 8.

If you’re Martin you’ve now seen all of Tarantino’s movies in the cinema in January and are begging to see the full roadshow version on the biggest screen possible.  We talk about the merits of the 70mm Panavision screening whilst Ahmed is made to feel inferior for having to get by with such a small screen – thank you Belgian distributors…

From the wintry evil of The Hateful 8, UPOD turns its attention to the X-files.  Throwing you straight back into the action, the writers clearly didn’t fancy hanging around and throw the viewer back in to the action at a pace, using the world’s events in the past 15 years to enhance the paranoia of Mulder and Scully and take us in a slightly new direction with a 6 part mini-series.

Kapoor & Sons Trailer Thoughts: Dysfunction is the new black!

The trailer for Kapoor & Sons just dropped and here are some free flowing thoughts whilst watching it:

  • Hey, at least Bollywood now accredits the internet when they steal a joke (looking at you Shahrukh)
  • Is this a Badshaah song? I don’t think i like Badshaah too much..
  • Glad someone switched Siddhart Malhotra’s setting from “brooding” to “happy”
  • Fawad Khan should grow his beard back…this chikna look isn’t working
  • The joys of watching fighting parents, Dil Dhadakne Do really started something in Bollywood…so deep….
  • Did Rathna Pathak just come back from a clown rave?
  • I know the make up in Kapoor & Sons is going to get lauded, but Rishi Kapoor looks like a burn victim
  • Are those the same eyes as the White Walker’s in Game of thrones?
  • ALIA BHATT in a DHARMA PRODUCTION??? WHHHHAAAT?
  • So is this Saajan mixed with Dil Dhadakne Do then?
  • Masturbation dance moves are always a laugh!
  • Do you even lift bro?
  • Spin the bottle always leads to tension and brooding…well it did back in the 70’s…
  • Isn’t there a Spin the Bottle app now? If not then must invent…
  • Sid is still not a good screamer unfortunately
  • Alia got some good cry face!
  • “Since 1921” makes it sounds like the movie has a weird tie up with Heinz’ Ketchup

Kapoor & Sons is in Theatres 18th March, 2016!
