Film Actually Ep010 (102) – Obvious Metaphors

Hosts: David McVay, Josh Philpott & Brandon McClelland

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 Brandon McLelland for a review of Oliver Stone’s, ‘Wall Street Money Never Sleeps’. We also have some Entertainment Buzz including the new easer trailer for ‘True Grit’ and a new List of Five, the five best Michael Doulas performances (not including Wall Street). You can find Brandon on Twitter @brandonicism

*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 10 but when you listen to the show you will hear it referred to as episode 102, 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
