David McVay is joined in studio by Mirren Lee and Katrina Smith.
We have decided to skip the tech this week and have a film centric episode because of Apple’s impending announcements next week. Next weeks show will probably be very tech heavy.
We have a discussion about black humour and how The Chaser’s (an Australian comedy show) completely screwed up with it’s parody of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. We discuss David Carradine’s death and how badly it has been reported.
David and Katrina (with Mirren’s help, even though she hasn’t seen them) review the new film starring Russell Crowe, State of Play. We quite liked it, not perfect but a good throw back to films like All The President’s Men, Absence of Malice or Three Days of the Condor.
Then we tear into McG’s Terminator Salvation. This is a monumental mistake in almost every way. Spoiler Alert, we go into detail (as Katrina and I do) and discuss everything, including plot twists and the ending!
As always this episode carries an explicit tag due to small amounts of bad language.
