The Summer Movie Sum-Up

Clive and Rob are joined again by film-makers Maria Thomas and Simon Aitken as we revisit our May Summer Movie preview. Did we see the films we said we’d watch? Did we like the films we said we’d watch? Did we watch films we didn’t say we’d watch? Did we film watches we didn’t have the time for?

From the game-changing Guardians Of The Galaxy to the tender, insightful Frank, we’ve got the whole gamut of the summer movie experience–summed up.

The climax of Blake’s 7 Month on Excuses And Half Truths: our gigantic (no kidding, I’ve had to split it in half) retrospect-o-view of the classic British SF show. Join Clive and I, along with Speakeasy regular Keith Eyles and friend of the blog Chris Rogers as we look at the characters, costumes, production values, themes and soooo much more. Settle in, Listenership. We’re heading for Galactic Edge with this one…

Excuses And Half Truths Presents: Rob & Clive’s Speakeasy!

All new, kind of different: Excuses And Half Truths Presents Rob & Clive’s Speakeasy!

Live from our new studio in London’s trendy Clerkenwell, The Speakeasy hits its first anniversary with a fresh coat of paint and a shoeshine.

Joining our intrepid podcastanauts on this new and exciting stage in our sonic journey are long time friend of the Speakeasy Simon Aitken, and first-timer Maria Thomas. Together, they share their hopes on the upcoming summer season at the movies, and give us their picks of the films to look out for over the next few months.

 

Hope you enjoy our new direction.

Also, our 50 Second SoundCloud Challenge covers Skweee, Moombahton and other genres you never knew existed!

Here’s the Spotify playlist of the albums we’re discussing:
