Welcome to the Film Actually podcast, your weekly dose of movie geek. Film Actually is the official movie podcast of geekactually.com.
This week David McVay and Josh Philpott are joined Calum Wilson Austin and Shane Gregory for a review of ‘Piranha 3D’. We also have footage from ‘The Walking Dead’, an 8 year olds take on ‘The Expendables’ and a new List of Five.
*Update 14/10/2011 – Film Actually was a split off from the main Geek Actually show and originally maintained numbering continuity with that show. That logic no longer works as the shows have become two unique entities, so we have gone back and re-numbered the Film Actually shows to reflect their true episode number. This show is now officially episode 6 but when you listen to the show you will hear it referred to as episode 98, this is why. Sorry about any confusion or inconvenience.
Film Actually is recorded live every Saturday at approximately 1.15pm (AEST UTC +10) at geekactually.com/live

Every year the population of sleepy Lake Victoria explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for Spring Break, a riot of sun and drunken fun. But this year, there’s something more to worry about than hangovers and complaints from local old timers; a new type of terror is about to be cut loose on Lake Victoria. After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the areas new razor-toothed residents. - source IMDB
Our Verdict: Probably the most stupid film of the year, but massively entertaining. Funny, gory and full of 3D boobies!

Lists of Five
The Five Best Boob Shots in Horror Movies. I apologise in advance as this didn’t seem like such a seedy idea when we thought of it.
This episode carries an explicit tag due to infrequent coarse language.
