Dead man down

A dead man

DEAD MAN DOWN exploding into cinemas on May 3

When the body of a gang member is discovered in the freezer of crime boss Alphonse’s (Terrence Howard) mansion – a clear message has been sent… or has it?

As the gang reacts, members Darcy (Dominic Cooper) and Victor (Colin Farrell) take it upon themselves to dig further into who is after Alphonse. As a further complication to the gang, neighbour Beatrice (Noomi Rapace) discovers Victor has a dark secret and contracts him into a scheme to seek out her own vengeance. With the violence escalating Alphonse begins to suspect that revenge is closer than he thought.

DEAD MAN DOWN stars Colin Farrell (TOTAL RECALL, SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS), Noomi Rapace (PROMETHEUS, SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS), Dominic Cooper (DEVIL’S DOUBLE) and Terrence Howard (IRON MAN) and marks the American theatrical debut of director Niels Arden Oplev (THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO).

The cast and director should ensure this one is a cracker and from the looks of the trailer there’s plenty to get stuck into!

Ep 43 Save Community, Tin Tin and the Secret of the Unicorn and The Devil’s Double

Quick, quick, Upod needs your help trying to save one of the best Comedy shows currently on TV!  Dan Harmon’s brainchild starring a bunch of awesome people is a local Community college in danger of being shut down, way ahead of its time and to the detriment of all who believe in intelligent creative writing.  We pick up the campaign inspired by this piece in the Atlantic Wire.

And as part of the Community program, there are wider issues to discuss such as the perceived rise in popularity of “slow TV” from an article on the BBC website about The Killing and the Wire (click here).  We sort through Sarah Lund’s woolly jumpers, Stringer Bell’s extra large clothes and much more, in the jumble sale* of quality TV drama and comedy.

Pretty much on TiVo fast forward, Ahmed tells us what TV we should have been watching recently (and what we shouldn’t have), Martin waxes lyrical about Tin Tin and Asim can’t quite admit that Immortals isn’t as good as it shoulda woulda coulda  been and reviews the new Andrew Niccols Sci Fi starrring Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried, In Time.

All of this before the grand finale: Lee Tamahori’s shot at cinematic redemption, The Devil’s Double.  Dominic Cooper stars in the movie about the ill-fated plan to play Uday Hussein’s body double.  Fast cars, loose women, designer clothes…

Here’s the trailer:

 

We’ll leave the rest for you to discover in the podcast!

* A Jumble sale is where you bring all your old stuff to say a church hall and then sell it.  Very popular with schools and Scouts etc when I was growing up.
