Still Under Wraps

Still Under Wraps

By Colin Chick
In a world where Chronic DVD and Blu-ray Acquisition Disorder* runs amok, Colin faces a daunting task. With a collection of over twelve hundred titles, can he bring himself to watch the sixty-five films that sit on his shelves, unwatched, unloved, and "Still Under Wraps"?

*Not a real disorder.

25: Hidden Figures
Colin battles with a corrupted Audio file (and thus apologises for wildly varying Audio levels), Thomas fails to have his butterflies ready, and Colin shows to all the world, yet again, that he has no clue as to what he's talking about. It's our fifth-best episode so far!  Join in the fun by joining the Facebook Group Still Under Wraps ; a search on Facebook should find it, or you can grab this cumbersome link:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/372745439978124/  And if you want to listen to Thomas do his own unauthorised spin-off Podcast discussing (maybe) the exact same viewing of this film, sign up to Uninhibited Meat Noises  (if only to find out why it's called that!) at https://anchor.fm/meatnoises/  Colin uses the My Movies app to keep track of his DVDs and Blu-rays, and to filter and select those that are "Still Under Wraps".

24: The World's Fastest Indian
Thomas and Colin break records, cross dimensions, get confused with the words "Green", "Toy", and "Small", and pee on Lemon trees. (Is the word "pee" an explicit word?) Colin is lazy in his editing and leaves in a fair amount of stuttering, pregnant pauses, "ummms", and "actually"s.

22: NOT Alien: Covenant
"Someone" didn't do their pre-S.U.W.-movie-movie-viewing homework, so Thomas invokes the Wild Card option, upon which Colin calls a mystery S.U.W. movie into play! What is it? Listen and find out!

21: Shutter Island
 Does this "spine-chilling thriller that critics say 'sizzles with so much suspense that it's hot to the touch'*" tick all the boxes? Some of the boxes? Or none of the boxes? Speaking of boxes, has a leader-board been put up yet in the commentary box, or a list of films that have already been pulled out of the box? And what ARE Space-Millipedes From Space? What does anything mean, and does anyone care? *Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.

15: Rubber
Colin breaks all records and has the podcast out into the wild soon enough for some other Australians to possibly be awake to download it! Is that because Colin and Thomas couldn't stomach it and stopped the viewing ten minutes in? Did they watch it all, but had nothing to say - so it's twenty-five minutes of dead air? Or was everyone just really efficient this time around (pffft!)? Find out in this unpredictable episode! And you won't believe what NEXT WEEK's film is!

14: Jason Bourne
Colin commits a  faux pas about mental health, and covers it up with another faux pas, then goes for the trifecta by telling a long, convoluted story about a Madman. Thomas gives his own interpretation of the first three Bourne films, using interpretive dance - which doesn't work as effectively as desired on an Audio Podcast. They throw questions to their eager listeners.

11: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Thomas decides that 1:30am is a good time to tell Colin that Colin botched the Audio on last week's episode (it's now 2:17am, and he's fixed it), Colin gets all paranoid that he'll botch it up this week too, they both botch up their Chinese pronunciation, and fail to mention that one of the main actors in this film also plays one of Colin's least favourite characters in Star Trek: Discovery.  Join in the fun by joining the Facebook Group Still Under Wraps ; a search on Facebook should find it, or you can grab this cumbersome link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/372745439978124/

05: Grave of the Fireflies
Colin and Thomas display gross ineptitude in the history department. They clash over the pronunciation of Ghibli, and may get a bit emotional. They also contemplate the future of the Podcast. Colin continues to trim stutters, ummms, aaaahs, and pregnant pauses from the recording, reducing it by 20% He also stays up way too late so it's released and ready for its largest audience as they awake in the morning.  Join in the fun by joining the Facebook Group Still Under Wraps ; a search on Facebook should find it, or you can grab this cumbersome link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/372745439978124/
