Yes, really. Find out what Phil & Shia LaBeouf talked about around 40 mins in! Spoiler-free review of Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur is up first – did it meet our T-Rexpectations? Then MOVIE COURT is back with a heated legal battle to redeem X Men: The Last Stand from movie prison – or extend its sentence. Phil’s chat with Shia LaBeouf comes next ahead of a discussion about how much the celebrity world of movie stars affects our enjoyment of their films. We wrap up with a full spoiler breakdown of The Good (or not so good, at all) Dinosaur. Thanks for listening and emailing, and thanks to Sam for joining us in the review bits this week!

Guess again! Phil is nervous about Pixar (and that his opinions are unpopular!) and we finish with a full, spoilerific breakdown and discussion on Bridge of Spies for those who’ve seen the movie. Let us know what you think – and thanks to everyone who’s downloaded and emailed us so far!

STAR WARS Special! Episode VII Hopes & Hype, and MOVIE COURT: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Couldn’t resist it – Laurie & Phil talk Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, what their hopes and nerves are doing as we enter the final two weeks of waiting. Can J.J. Abrams pull it off? Will it be another nostalgia-fest or a great new tale? Laurie also dips into the huge tidal wave of Movie Marketing that’s going on for one of the most anticipated sequels of all time; Darth Vader pinatas? You bet. And finally we introduce the very first MOVIE COURT, this week with The Secret Life of Walter Mitty accused of, well, not being a very good movie. Laurie stands for the prosecution and Phil takes up the defense. Who will win? It’s a tense courtroom showdown! (sort of) Get in touch with your vote!
