Film Actually Ep023 (115) – Moving Vehicles

Hosts: David McVay & Josh Philpott

Film Actually is the official movie podcast of geekactually.com – This week David McVay and Josh Philpott review of Tony Scott’s new film, “Unstoppable”. We also have some Entertainment Buzz including the new trailer for “Battle: Los Angeles” and a brand new Lists of Five – Five Movies on Moving Vehicles. So sit back, grab a snack and enjoy.

*Update 31/07/2012 – 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 23 but when you listen to the show you will hear it referred to as episode 115, this is why. Sorry about any confusion or inconvenience.

Film Actually is recorded live every Saturday. Go to geekactually.com/live for the schedule and to watch it

Your show notes:

Feature Film Review

‘Unstoppable’ directed by Tony Scott and written by Mark Bomback. It stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pine, Rosario Dawson, Ethan Suplee and Kevin Dunn.

With an unmanned, half-mile-long freight train barreling toward a city, a veteran engineer and a young conductor race against the clock to prevent a catastrophe. – Source IMDB

Our Verdict: A silly film that feels like a cheesy 90’s action movie. Could be fun on DVD with a group of friends and a few beers. Feels vaguely like a Roadrunner cartoon.
