Our agenda is simple, we aim to discover, discuss, and introduce a variety of #cult, #classic, misunderstood or dismissed films that you or may not have heard of. We upload one episode a week and record from #Melbourne, #Australia. 

Your hosts are Wayne, Michelle, Justin, and Darkest-Timeline Justin. Wayne is interested in the culture of film. Michelle prefers behind the scenes stories and trivia. Darkest-Timeline Justin loves superheroes, horror, and anime. Justin specializes in industrial strength awesomeness. 

The links above go to facebook, twitter, email, & iTunes. You can even download episodes by holding the 'option' key, and clicking "Download this episode."

For best listening experience, use our Stitcher Radio Link. #Stitcher is a better app than iTunes in our humble opinions, and can be used on android, mac or PC seamlessly.

Galaxy Quest (1999)

In this episode Michelle’s Dad, Bryan joins us, as we follow up our #HitchikersGuideToTheGalaxy episode with a revisit to the late 90s #StarTrek satire #GalaxyQuest (1999), starring #TimAllen, #SigourneyWeaver, #AlanRickman, #SamRockwell and #TonyShalhoub.

Throughout this episode we discuss the #SciFi tropes, the opinions of #StarTrekAlumni such as #PatrickStewart, #GeorgeTakei and #WilWheaton, as well as #JJAbrams belief that this is the greatest Star Trek film he’s ever seen, and whether or not the film holds up 16 years later.

We also have a new affiliate in AllThingsFilm.co.uk and finally draw a winner for our #HungerGames prizepack.

As per usual, you can find us on itunes, stitcher or tunein radio, and you can contact us via twitter @SGSpod, email us at SGSmailbag@gmail.com, and find us on Facebook.

Douglas Adam's Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy (2005)

In this episode, Michelle's dad, Bryan joins us for a discussion of the 2005 film version of the #cult #scifi phenomenon of #HitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy, by the late #DouglasAdams, Bryan introduces us to the #audiobook series, the novels and the #BBC tv version bfore we move onto the #2005 film starring #ZooeyDeschanel, #MartinFreeman, #SamRockwell, #JohnMalkovich, #WarwickDavis, #BillNighy, #MosDef, now #YasiinBey, and the vocal talents of #AlanRickman, #HelenMirren and #StephenFry.

Through this episode we examine how far removed the movie was from Douglas Adam's work and whether or not they maintained the spirit and energy of previous incarnations. Michelle also provides us with some trivia on the film from #imdb while Wayne discusses the DVD commentary and why they went to #TelAviv to get the #Dolphin footage that opens the film. Darkest-Timeline Justin was away for this episode, but we still had #DreamboatJustin on board who can lighten the mood of any room.

Mr, Nobody (2009)

Join Michelle, Wayne, Darkest-Timeline Justin, and DreamBoat Justin as they discuss the plots of #MrNobody, the story of a boy on a station platform as a train is about to leave. Should he go with his mother or stay with his father? Infinite possibilities arise from this decision. As long as he doesn't choose, anything is possible.

This was a #FrenchCanadian, #German and #UK coproduction starring #JaredLeto, #SarahPolley, #DianneKrueger, #RhysIfans and #JunoTemple.

The guys at the Soylent GreenScreen discuss #ChaosTheory, #StringTheory, and how these apply to the movie #MrNobody.

John Wick

In this episode we discuss the latest #KeanuReeves film, #JohnWick and why this might well be the greatest American action film this century. Through this discussion we examine the problems with modern action films such as #Taken and the current trend of #LiamNeeson in cheap action schlock and why this makes John Wick feel so refreshing. We also discuss why the death of the dog works so well as a catalyst for the plot.

In this episode we explore the latest film from The #Wachowski's. While we all had differing ideas on what this film wanted to be, one thing we all agreed on was that the characters played by #MilaKunis and #ChanningTatum were terribly written but we loved #EddieRedmayne's #MarlonBrando impersonation. Space Princess Justin introduced us to the homages that the film paid, but all Wayne could see were comparisons to the #SuperMarioBros. Movie from 1993.
