WARNING: This is a SPOLIER filled podcast! Because, honestly, how else can you talk about one of the most anticipated films in recent times? J.J. Abrams has taken over the helm from George Lucas to create a sequel worthy of the originals. With John Williams manning the score, practical effects back in the frame, and humour amongst the drama, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the most fun you'll have at the cinema, whether your a Star Wars fanatic or a newcomer to the franchise. With the original cast of Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford joined by the fresh faces of Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Issac, we delve into this space opera and come up with a few of our own theories, as well as a break down of the good and the bad (but mainly good) of Star Wars Episode 7.

On this Saturday Special it is Layla's turn to get her Virgin Viewings of the notorius Star Wars Prequels: The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith. After George Lucas' masterstroke with the original trilogy, just what exactly went wrong with Darth Vader's backstory? We examine the script, the acting and the CGI of the prequels in our last episode before finally getting to talk about the latest in the series, The Force Awakens.

Can you believe that Layla has got to adulthood without ever seeing Star Wars? Crazy, but with The Force Awakings coming to cinema's very soon, we thought it was right time to address this problem. Focusing on the orginal 1977-1983 trilogy, Richee introduces Layla to the story and the characters, and we discuss what makes these films so iconic, as well as the CGI that was added to the 2004 re-edit. But the real question is: did Layla enjoy it? Find out in our Star Wars special.

Fed up of the usual sickly sweet films distributed at Christmas? Well, Michael Dougherty's Krampus may be the film for you. Based on the once banned Alpine folklore beast, Krampus see's the horned god and his minions punish a family who loose the Yuletide spirit. With a foray of comedic actors, including Adam Scott, Toni Collette and David Koechner, as well as Emjay Anthony as the young Max, whose woes cause all their troubles, we look into this comedy-horror to see what worked and what didn't. Don't forget to stick around after the song, as we delve deeper into spoiler territory and discuss the film's ending.

Black Mass see's what has been dubbed as Johnny Depp's return to acting, as he play's real life crime lord James "Whitey" Bulger in this FBI corruption thriller. Directed by Scott Cooper, Black Mass contains some big name stars, with Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon and Dakota Johnson joining Depp, but do these famous faces distract from the story? And what's with Cumberbatch's accent? Find out in our podcast review.

The hugely popular film franchise, based on the books by Suzanne Collins, comes to an end with this fourth film, directed by Francis Lawrence. Katniss finally gets to take her revenge on the evil President Snow, but what kind of world is she leading everyone to, especially when she's got the slightly dubious Alma Coin backing her. Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Donald Sutherland, Julianne Moore and the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, we look at the influence of the series, as well as questioning whether it was successful or not.

This Aaron Sorkin scripted and Danny Boyle directed biography of Apple's late visionary takes a different route to uncovering the subtleties of Steve Jobs, focusing on backstage arguements to three of his biggest product launches. With an exceptional cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogan and Jeff Daniels, Steve Jobs is a unique exploration into the complex character of this controversial figure.

Was you ever a scout? Did you ever feel your skills where wasted? Maybe you should hold out for a zombie apocalypse. Tye Sheridan, Logan Miller and Joey Morgan star along side badass cocktail waitress Sarah Dumont as the scouts acting as the last line of defence against the zombie virus. Directed by Christopher Landon, join us in our review of this enjoyable, but juvenile, teen comedy.

Finally out to own on DVD, we review ex-Beta Band member John Maclean's first full length film Slow West. Starring Kodi Smit-McPhee as a teenager heading west to find his lost love and Micheal Fassbender as his hard-edged bodyguard for hire, Slow West gives us sly knowing wink to the Western genre, with hints of surreal humour to the brutal violence and isolation commonly associated with cowboy films.

James Bond is back in his latest Sam Mendes directed flick Spectre. Daniel Craig stars as 007, up against a shadowy organisation, headed by Christoph Waltz, as well as the threat of losing his licence to kill by Andrew Scott's C. With a wealth of acting talent, including Ben Wishaw, Monica Belluci, Lea Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes and Dave Bautista, we discuss the film (with SPOILERS) and talk its similarities with Captain America: Winter Soldier and Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation.

Carrying on with our Trick or Treat specials this Halloween season, we review a zombie film with a difference. Elijah Wood and Rainn Wilson star in Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion's Cooties, where cafeteria food infects pre-pubesant kids, and they take over the school as the undead. But how successful can a zombie film be when the goriest part is when they show you how chicken nuggets are made? Listen to our review to find out more.

Guillermo del Toro is back, just in time Halloween, with his gothic romance Crimson Peak. Starring Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain, we have a luxurious production design, that references everything from 1961's The Innocents, 1945's The Picture of Dorian Gray, as well as Bram Stoker's Dracula, but with all the love and care gone into the sets, how much is left for the plot? Listen to our review to find out.

Is Troll 2 really the Best Worst Movie ever? Maybe so. We take a look at this cult classic from 1990, directed by Claudio Fragasso, and look at what makes this film so bad, and yet so good, as well as the John Carl Buechler 1986 horror-fantasy Troll, which Troll 2 piggy backed on the back of.

Denis Villeneuve's Sicario follows idealistic FBI agent Kate, played by Emily Blunt, whose investigation into the head of a Mexican drug cartel leads her to violent and often illegal practices as she joins forces with a government official (Josh Brolin) and the mysterious Alejandro (Benicio del Toro) to track the leaders of the cartel down. With excellent cinematography and a tense soundtrack, how does the rest of this crime thriller fair?

First you had George A. Romero's 1968 cult classic, then you had Tom Savini's 1990 remake, and now we've got Jeff Broadstreet's 2006 3D version of Night of the Living Dead. Awesome, right? Unfortunately you'd be sadly mistaken, as this re-telling has none of the wit, imagination and social conscious of the previous two version. We dissect this hot mess and wonder if this film could be one of the most insulting we've ever reviewed.

Ridley Scott takes us back into space with an adaptation of Andy Weir's The Martian. Matt Damon gets lost yet again, but this time he is left for dead on Mars after a large sandstorm. He has to use wit and ingenuity to survive, even if that does mean using his own feces to grow potatoes. An awesome premise for a survival film, but just how well is it told? And whats with all the name titles? Also staring Michael Pena, Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels and Donald Glover, listen to our review to find out more.

For Halloween this year, we are trick or treating you with podcasts and posts up on the blog all to do with horror. We are starting off with what would be many kids first forays into horror themes, and that is Barry Sonnenfeld's The Addams Family. With an excellent cast and jokes that still hold up today, we revisit this 1991 classic and discuss its influence. Cara mia!

It's Richee's turn for Virgin Viewings this week, and we watch probably one of the most iconic films in cinema history, 2001: A Space Odyssey. Praised for it's stunning visuals, majestic music and open interpretations, this film is equally vilified for it's lack of dialogue and refusal to explain anything. One of Layla's personal favourites, how will Richee fair to this Marmite film?

WARNING: Podcast contains arguing and monkey noises.

For the uninitiated, Virgin Viewings are special episodes in which we challange each other to watch a beloved film that the other hasn't seen before. Find other episodes here.

Richee is treated to his Virgin Viewings of Jonathan Glazer's Under the Skin. Adapted from Michel Faber's novel, we see Scarlett Johansson star as an alien taking the form of an attractive human female, who main objective is to seduce and harvet the men of Scotland. At once obtuse and relateable, we discuss the story and Johansson's alien, as well as the experience of whatching the film itself.

May 1996 saw the worst loss of life for a single day on the world's highest mountain, Everest, up until that point in time. Everest recounts the build up to that unfortuante event, and questions the motives of the people who decided to climb it. Directed by Baltasar Kormákur, Everest contains stunning sound and visuals and a host of actors, including Josh Brolin, Jason Clarke, Jake Gyllenhaal, Keira Knightly and John Hawkes.

The infamous London gangsters Ronnie and Reggie Kray have been brought to the big screen, this time played by acting chameleon Tom Hardy. Brian Helgeland's film is at once funny, glamorous and dark, and reminds us that fame and the criminal lifestyle are not a good mix. Also starring Emily Browning and Christopher Eccleston, we look at the myth of these infamous gangsters in Legend.

You'll believe a man can, um, lie on a mat? For our Virgin Viewings this week, Richee and Layla are treated to Superman 4, the notoriously worst of the Superman films, by blog contributor L.J. Spence. We talk bad special effects, questionable physics, and just how a film like this was made in the first place, plus maybe the only good thing to come out of this Cannon Films production. Listen to our podcast review, and let us know what you thought of Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.
