You’re so Money…

He’s back with his investment bell and advice on what you should have done 4 weeks ago with your FFL cast.

Mr Birch guides you through the top 5 highest scoring stars and looks at a few investment opportunities ahead.  It’s like those complicated investment show only it’s on a Sunday morning and even if you do lose your shirt on buying an expensive Chris you can always start over again….

The September Trailers Podcast

Wilson here. Now then…guilty pleasures. We’ve all got them. Whether it’s hogging the sour-sugar powder at the bottom of a bag of cola-bottle sweets or secretly enjoying the kids TV show “Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles” (c’mon, it’s not just me, right? Right?) there’s always something we secretly love but tend not to talk about much. Well, don’t tell anyone, but there’s actually a Marvel film I don’t mind watching and I’ve seen more than once. Deliberately.

It’s Thor, 2011’s Chris Hemsworth vehicle and I’m actually really looking forward to Ragnarok. But what do Smith and Birch make of the trailer?

You’ll find out, of course, but not until you’ve heard our take on the trailers for Kingsman: The Golden Circle, The Vault, Borg McEnroe and Flatliners.

OK, enough waffle, time for some talkie talkie from the Boys.

Trailer music, best done epically, has been borrowed once more from Two Steps From Hell. They do more than trailer music too – worth checking out.

What The Fuffle?

Mr Birch has been working away on a mini-podcast to give you more details on the economics of the FFL.  So if you are wondering if buying Vin Diesel was a good decision (it was) or if buying all the Star Wars cast right now is a good idea (it’s not) then this is the podcast for you.

Let us know what you think.

 

 

The FFL September Podcast

Well summer was, er, summery and it’s gone now. So it’s time to stop grilling meat in our back gardens and get back to the important business of explaining how we’re planning to fund the FFL Curry and Beer evening now that Daniel Craig has decided to delay Henry Cavill’s Bond career by a few years.

We’re not entirely motivated by food. Stats have become a big part of Mr Birch’s life of late and he brings us a full on stat-attack, looking at some of the success stories of the last 6 months of the game. Meanwhile Smith Jnr. strolls in to let us know if Cars 3 was worth it.

There’s probably some more Epic Trailer Music out there now, but we’re still rolling with Epic Trailer Music from Two Steps From Hell for the time being. Meanwhile, have we played The Budget Bond Theme from DR Squid for the last time?

The July Trailers Podcast

Smith and Birch bring the last trailers review of the summer. If variety be the spice of life then this podcast is a vindaloo curry. From the most rebooted franchise ever (Spiderman), to a film that brings an (ahem) emotional response from Birch (Emoji Movie) via It Comes At Night and Dunkirk – this podcast is a rom-com away from the royal flush of genres!

Back in September!

(Also the last time we’ll be using Epic Trailer Music from Two Steps From Hell for a while. Probably…)

The FFL July Podcast (Last one before the Summer Break)

What does the FFL Podcast have in common with most european countries? They both take most of August off! But before we drag ourselves away from our screens and go cold turkey from our movie additions on a beach somewhere, we’ve created this podcast for you! (And the trailers podcast for next week too, which we totally recorded live nearer the time and it’s a complete co-incidence that the same people appear in both).

This week, Smith is in a box, Birch gets the Dungeon of Doom all wrong and a trio of Estalls talk about WonderWoman. Tell me – where else would you find all that?

Like Epicness? Like trailer music? You’ll love the great work that is Epic Trailer Music from Two Steps From Hell

Also, do you like Bond themes? Do you have no money to pay for your own? Then seek out DR Squid* who can help you find a sucker to do it for you. For free.

*I’m going out on a limb and suggesting it’s mostly NSFW. Well, most offices at least.

The FFL June Trailers Podcast

So, Ladies and Gentlemen, here we have the June Trailers podcast from the FFL. Which I’ve managed to get wrong – just a little bit. I’ll explain.

The point of the trailers podcast is to give you a window into our opinons on the upcoming movies of the month in case any merit some last minute cast changes in your fantasy films. Therefore, you’d expect the podcast to come out before the film and, for the most part, they do. However, this month, mainly due to being distracted by the build of the new wing on the Temple of Gozer I live in, I’ve completely failed to schedule the release of the June Trailers podcast. So if you were wondering on our advice about getting Gal Gadot in your cast on the back of Wonderwoman, well, that advice isn’t exactly timely.

All is not lost though! For a start, we already looked at Wonderwoman back in January so you can get our early impressions from back then. We’ve also spotted a pair of Churchill movies, we then ruin it all by making ourselves watch a Transformers trailer, but then redeem the situation by watching Baby Driver.

(Incidentally, on that last one and on our Discord chat, Mr Estall was at pains to point out to me that it’s not just a low budget Fast and Furious clone, no matter how much I think it looks like one. I think he thinks I’ve committed some form of blasphemy against Edgar Wright).

So dive in and then let us know what you think using the usual social media contact methods. If you need me, I’ll just be installing the extra large smoke machines next to the steps.

Epic Trailer Music, suitable as a soundtrack for a thousand year old god, is from Two Steps From Hell.
