Guillermo Del Toro

The Hobbit: Amazing New Stills

There really isn’t much to say about The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, if you loved the previous LOTR trilogy by Peter Jackson and have seen the trailers, you are pretty much completely on board and probably have the date of 13 december marked in your calendar.

Although the original book itself is much shorter, Peter Jackson and Guillermo Del Toro have put their geek brains together and padded the story out for 3 movies.

Some cynics might see it as a cash grab but you can’t deny the passion and love that Jackson has for this world.

 

Here are some exclusive new images from the movie.

 

Honestly, I can’t wait to visit this world again.

Ep 35 Real Steel , The WhistleBlower, The Hour and FrightFest

Upodcasting was hungry. Very hungry. We have feasted on the many delights on offer and bring you a tasting menu of scientifically measured blabber in an episode that Heston Blumenthal would be proud of.

The annual Film4 Frightfest returns to haunt us, but in a good way. We talk about the Guillermo Del Toro produced remake of Don’t be afraid of the dark and the follow-up to cult British horror classic The Wicker man, The Wicker Tree; again directed by Robin Hardy.

For good or for bad, Breaking In has been renewed and we also debate the merits of Franklin and Bash. Whatever our conclusions, Louis CK brings us back to reality with the excellent and award nominated, Louie. More flights of fancy follow with our analysis of the excellent trailer for Tucker Vs Evil.

BBC2’s 6 part drama The Hour is the next dish to be served…mainly cold, but with a dash of spicy sauce to liven it up. We then have a little bit of a breather between courses; some sorbet to cleanse the pallet in the form of Real Steel: the all action, futuristic, robot-fighting, fun-packed blockbuster starring Hugh Jackman. Our co-host @asimburney was lucky enough to have a sneak preview screening!

The main review this episode is for The Whistleblower – a somewhat under-known film starring Rachel Weiss in a brilliant performance in a powerful film. It won’t spoil things to say we think this film is fantastic and a perfectly satisfying way to end our movie meal.
