Ep 25: ScreenDump does an all new Ghostbusters review

May 9, 2018

An 80s classic. A marketing cash cow. A hated trailer. Women.

This is all we knew going into the all new Ghostbusters film in 2016, what we didn't know was, will it be any good?

Check out our spoilerific review and discussion about all things Ghostbusters, from the hallowed original to the kid-friendly animated series, and from the misguided 1989 sequel to the 2016 reboot.

Ep 24: Pod Sounds: Gigging in the 21st Century

Ep 24: Pod Sounds: Gigging in the 21st Century

May 9, 2018

The battle to be at the front, the anticipation, and the euphoria that hits as the first strains of your favourite song begin. Live music can be the reason for some of the greatest nights of your life. And then sometimes it's not.

That's right, this week we look at the awesomeness that is live music (and a little comedy thrown in for good measure). With the news of Apple's latest patent that will enable venues to disable the camera function on Apple phones, we thought it was a good time to talk about whether this is a necessary step and what it means for gig fans everywhere. Although this features our top five pet peeves about gigs, this is really a celebration of what happens when artists and fans get in the same room.

Keep it live,

Ep 17: Netflix Originals: Round 2

May 9, 2018

It all started with Frank & Claire Underwood...

So we realised that we've watched an alarming number of the ever-expanding Netflix original series' & thought we should talk about them.

Our first Netflix podcast covered everything we watched until January and this one features new Netflix in the first five months of 2016. 
We cover the exceptionally excellent, right through the maudlin MOR, to the drearily dull and we need to just stress, Netflix do not pay us to do this, we just really like binging good shows!

Come with us and find out what original content from Netflix is worth a binge and what's for the bin.

Ep 14: Are we on the verge of a new Golden Age for music videos?

May 9, 2018

So for our latest episode we decided to look at a long-forgotten favourite from our screens, the music video.

With the release of Radiohead's 'Burn The Witch' video and last week's 'Lemonade' epic from Beyonce ScreenDump ask the question, are we on the verge of a new Golden Age of music videos.

Recent years have seen a change in the way music videos are consumed so we decided to take a trip down memory lane and examine one of the greatest periods of artistry on the small screen.

We cover the most influential music videos, our favourites and some which aren't so favourite, let us know your top music videos or any glaring omissions from our list.

Ep 10: The Effect Of Movie Trailers

Ep 10: The Effect Of Movie Trailers

May 9, 2018

Are the best screen experiences the ones where you have no prior knowledge? Do you prefer your trailers to be subtle works of art or do you need a film to bend over backwards to win you over?

This week we get to grips with screen trailers, the art of a movie teaser and the modern phenomenon of showing a bit too much of a film before going in.

Join us as we work out where we stand and Meerkuts tries to pronounce JJ Abrams....

Let us know your thoughts and favourite movie trailers in the comments below...

Ep 9: What is the future of the comic book adaptation on screen?

May 9, 2018

Are we reaching peak comic book movie adaptation? Will Batman vs. Superman be any good? Is Alan Moore right?

This week we cry excelsior and delve into comics, their on-screen adaptations (both good and bad) and the future of the comic book medium on screen.

We're delighted to welcome Paul Clark-Forse, a comic book writer and letterer for indie publishers Dead Canary Comics, who brings his encyclopaedic knowledge, his love of tea and his strange habit of emphasising the second syllable.

We recorded this at around 3am after a few glasses of wine so we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Let us know your thoughts and be sure to check out the DCC catalogue at www.deadcanarycomics.com

So they brought the X-Files back...again...

Yes, Mulder & Scully are back in their best G-men suits and the truth is still out there, well supposedly.

HoBo JoBo and Meerkuts settle down to the familiar credits, the sizzling on-screen relationship and the myriad of Williams and ask the biggest questions of them all... should they have brought it back, was it worth it and should we see a Season 11?

Ep 7: Trainspotting Anniversary - The impact of Movie Soundtracks on film and visa-versa

May 9, 2018

So Trainspotting is 20 years old...

We'll just let that sink in for a while. Aside from being an important slice of British cinema it also had an amazingly influential soundtrack which set in motion a new phenomenon in the music world too.

This week @HoboJoBo and @Meerkuts discuss film soundtracks, their influence plus whether the soundtrack for a film has an impact on the music world and visa versa.
