Escape To Victory

"Where do I stand for a corner kick?"

One of the most keenly fought battles amongst my friends was who gets to be the guest on this episode - the winner was Adam Hurrey, the man behind Football Cliches (and podcast) and father of my youngest daughter's best friend, which in no way influenced the vote after a few beers at our local non-league ground (Worcester Park FC could quite easily have hosted the game to be honest).

Join us as we romp through the tale of how three World Cup winners, Michael Caine, Sylvester Stallone and the UEFA Cup winning Ipswich squad secured a gallant 4-4 draw away to THE NAZIS.

Santa Claus: The Movie

"A sequel! That's it! We'll bring it out on March 25, and we'll call it.... CHRISTMAS 2!!!!"

Well, it's a little early, but 2020 has been so utterly bereft of joy that Catrin and I are bringing you the final episode of the year out a few days early as we revisit the glorious McDonalds advert "Santa Claus The Movie". Brought to you by the makers of Superman, the director of Supergirl and the young ragamuffin who... did nothing else but play Joe in this film.

Hope you have the best Christmas possible with as many loved ones as you can safely spend time with.

See you in 2021, thanks for all the support.

(If you'd like to leave a Christmas present under the Betamax tree, a five star rating on iTunes would be delightful)

Rambo III

"God would have mercy. He won't."

The John Rambo trilogy (movies ceased to exist in 1990 other than the bonus episodes I do on Patreon) and Simon Smith returns to rescue me from a Soviet prison camp in the middle of Podcastistan and we don't even get any Steven Berkoff to make it easier...

Back To The Future

"I guess you guys aren't ready for that yet... But your kids are going to love it"

One of the all-time greats finally arrives on Betamax - and we go all the way back to 1985 to revisit a lot of people's favourite movie. Due to poor planning it's not episode 88, but better early than late. Joining me in the podcasting Delorean is Beano cartoonist Andy Fanton.

The Goonies

"HEY YOU GUYS!!!!!"

Welcome to the biggest adventure on Betamax so far as I'm joined by two guests for the first time, Doug and Elly from the newish podcast Doug and Elly Watch Telly. They were surprisingly gentle with a movie that a lot of people will count as their favourite.

Three Amigos!

"You dirt-eating piece of slime! You scum-sucking pig! You son of a motherless goat!"

We travel back in time to a golden age of cinema this week, as the infamous Graham Sibley returns for another film with an exclamation mark (after Airplane!, while Goal! does get mentioned...).

Pretty In Pink

"His name is Blane? Oh! That's a major appliance, that's not a name!"

We remain in the classics section this time with one of the defining movies of the era, featuring the first lady of 80s cinema Molly Ringwald.

Joining me at the prom is The Telegraph's arts and entertainment editor Anita Singh - she even has a copy of the novelisation with the original ending so clearly an authority on the topic. She also suggests a very interesting companion film at the end...

Thanks again for the ongoing support

Top Gun

"The defense department regrets to inform you that your sons are dead because they were stupid."

One of the great 80s movies gets the Betamax treatment as I'm joined in the cockpit by broadcaster Simon London - we play a little volleyball, lose that lovin' feeling and enjoy some sweet Kenny Loggins.

Moonstruck

"In time you'll drop dead and I'll come to your funeral in a red dress!"

Welcome back for a rare Oscar winning movie (three gongs) and a long overdue return for the fabulous Catrin Lowe. Again, I'd never seen the movie beforehand... But, Cher, Nicolas Cage, Frasier's dad, what more could you ask for?
