Nolan’s unique war epic sees the British director revisit the past in more ways than one…
Recently on The Punch Up podcast, the chaps chatted Denis Villeneuve’s stonking new sci-fi flick, Arrival, and took a look at Mel Gibson’s victorious return to the director’s chair with his brutal World War Two picture, Hacksaw Ridge.
There’s also a new segment, KnockOut, where we begin the epic task of narrowing down TPU’s all time favourite films!
The Punch Up is a brand new weekly film & television podcast broadcasting from the laaaazy west coast city of Vancouver, Canada.
Featuring regulars Phill Bartlett, Adam Blair, and yours truly, Nicholas Lay, the chaps and I will be covering regular news, reviews, previews, and retrospect from the world of the reel.
Put ’em up!
Ep.16 – ‘War, THIS Is What It’s Good For’
This week on The Punch Up podcast it’s a Sucker Punched special as the chaps chat war, and how it’s really only good for making movies…
Leading the conversation are three very different flicks straight from the front line; The Big Red One (1980), starring Lee Marvin and Mark Hamill, Enemy at the Gates (2001), starring Jude Law and Rachel Weisz, and a stunning foreign language entry, the German-made, The Lives of Others (2006).
