Episode 126 - IT: Chapter 2
IT or sh*t? Our podcast on the first part of this film was so long ago it's not even listed any more, so I feel comfortable in reusing the same joke from last time. Films based on Stephen King books are hit and miss when it comes to hollywood, so which column is this one in?

Episode 125 - Aladdin
Do Guy Ritchie films and Disney live action remakes have more in common than just a spotty record of quality (Beauty and the Beast live action wasn't very good; there, I said it)? Listen in to find out how well an ageing rapper can replace one of the most energetic improv comedians of all time at the height of his career.

Episode 124b - Avengers Endgame WITH SPOILERS
The second part of our Avengers Endgame podcast, where we don't hold back on discussing anything in the movie, so it's chock full of SPOILERS. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Episode 123 - Marvel's Captain Marvel
It's taken ten years, but there's finally a female-led Marvel movie. But is it any good, or just an amuse bouche before Avengers: Endgame? I mean, you can probably find out from a review site in a nanosecond, but why not listen to us talk about it for a bit instead (eventually, after about 45 minutes of talking about the trailers, as per usual).

Episode 122 – Mary Poppins Returns
She’s back, but should we be saying “it’s supercallifragilisticexpialidocious to see you?”, or “chim-chiminee chim-chiminee chim chim f*ck you?”

Episode 121 – Aquaman
Could it be the film that saves the DCEU? Could it possibly be much worse than what’s gone before (Wonder Woman excepted)? How annoyed must the producers have been that they couldn’t cast Laurence Fishburne )(fish-born)

Episode 120 – Bohemian Rhapsody
The film that answers the burning questions you always had about Queen, such as: ‘which of them studied electrical engineering at university?’ and ‘what was Roger Taylor thinking when he wrote the song ‘I’m in love with my car”? None of this and more will be revealed in the latest episode of the Jaded Eye podcast.

Episode 119 – The Predator
It’s the film series that started it all; well, this podcast anyway. That’s right, revisiting the cinematic universe that gave us Jaded Eye podcast episode 1 (Predators) all those years ago in 2010, it’s the latest instalment: THE Predator.

Episode 118- Solo: A Star Wars Story
By now it’s officially the first Star Wars ‘flop’ if you listen to the money men, but there are plenty of critics and audiences that reckon it’s worth a go. So should we give this film a Han, or leave it to fly Solo?

Episode 117: Avengers Infinity War [SPOILER FREE]
SPOILER FREE PODCAST! Aww yiss; ten years coming, the culmination of the MCU phase 3, this record-breaking film has landed, and we went to the biggest screen in the country to see it on release weekend. How do we cover this film without giving away any spoilers? You’ll have to listen to find out!

Episode 116 – Tomb Raider
Let’s set aside giraffe-necked posters and the 17-year-old (really? OK I’m feeling very old now) predecessor, the new film based on a video game is out right now, and how can that not be good? So is this a new Mortal Kombat, or a new Resident Evil? Trick question, they’re both great films! But is this one? And more importantly, can you possibly trust our opinion now you know what we think of those other two films?

Episode 115 – Black Panther
It’s the film everyone’s talking about: just another superhero flick, a disappointment, a transcendent cinematic experience, or something in between?
February 18, 2018
Episode 114: Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle
No, it’s not the Dwayne Johnson/Seann William Scott film Welcome to the Jungle, nor is it the 2013 Jean Claude van Damme film Welcome to the Jungle, nor is it the 2007 horror film Welcome to the Jungle. But enough about what it isn’t; is it any good?

Episode 113 – Thor Ragnarok
Another day, another Marvel film franchise part 3. But does this one ragna-rock, or ragna-suck?
