The FFL May Trailers Podcast

This month the boys discuss trailers for The Circle, Alien Covenant, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Pirates of The Caribbean, Baywatch and Mindhorn. And if that little lot isn’t enough for you, remember what Marvel do during and after the credits for their movies… well, you’ll need the links at the bottom of this blog for that bit.

So, if you have access to youtube, why don’t you watch the trailers when we do and scream at your MP3 player how wrong we are. Especially about Alien – there is no way that film is disappearing inside a month!

About those links… well, there’s the usual Epic Trailer Music from Two Steps From Hell, but this time, if you’re unfamiliar with the Youtube search bar, you’ll also want “The Original” link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mz_YWNhKOkM and the super smooth modern re-interpretation from Tom F https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xESiohGGP7g

Enjoy… Wilson

The FFL May Podcast

It’s the May FFL Podcast and it’s another Birch and The Smiths spesh. We’ve seen Fast and Furious 8 which ticked all the right boxes, but begs the question of why we don’t rate xXx the same way. Weird, I know.
There’s also game news and a review of Beauty and The Beast by Birch, who has clearly forgotten that we have an intern precisely because *they* can go and see this kind of film so we don’t have to.

We’re still using Epic Trailer Music from Two Steps From Hell because we still like it, and would encourage you to get familiar with their other amazing works.

The FFL April Trailers Podcast

This month on the Trailers Podcast there’s a look at the Spandex-i-licious Power Rangers, animation of the month in the form of Boss Baby, we’re not sure what to make of Life, and finally Birch and Smith get excited* about Guardians of The Galaxy 2 and Fast and the Furious 8… no, wait, that’s not right – it’s F8 and the… no, that can’t be right. It’s eight and the furi… oh, I give up.

*It’s just possible they were so excited they forgot GOTG2 and F8OTF were covered earlier… but can you tell us when? Full marks for anyone who gets back to me with the correct episode!

Epic music of trailery epicness from Two Steps From Hell.

The FFL April Podcast

Hello and welcome to the FFL April podcast. Coming to you a few days late because of [feel free to insert your own excuse here because it will be better than anything Wilson can come up with]. We are pleased to continue our outsourcing to Smith Jnr by making him watch films we don’t want to, Birch has some very exciting game news that should motivate us all, Bondwatch is back and more. It’s another packed show.

Our Epic Trailer Music is from Two Steps From Hell and a special mention for Dr Squid who created our Budget Bond Theme. For free. Sucker…

The FFL March Trailers Podcast

It’s March, it’s the 8th and that means it’s time for the March Trailers Podcast. This months selection of out-now-or-really-soon movies includes violent action, a failed attempt at comedy violence, a creature feature, sci-fi, superheroes and a ghost story about someone who goes shopping in France. So, quite a good spread on the genre front then.

If you don’t already know that our Epic Trailer Music is from Two Steps From Hell then this must be your first time! Welcome! Enjoy the podcast then pop on over to our Discord chat and tell us how wrong we all are.

Until next month…

The Legend of the Legendary FFL March Podcast

Welcome to the March FFL Podcast where we completely ignore that big awards festival where people ban their accountants because the wrong winner gets announced and instead let you know what really matters. Yes, Ladies and Gents, you can talk to us directly via Discord. Let us know what you think of the game, what’s already great and what we should do to make it an even greater game. Or make fun of Wilson’s total lack of avatar just because you can.

We also introduce the FFL Movie Title generator, there’s another Smith keeping our language family friendly and handing out the quiz buzzers, there’s movie reviews and a dungeon of doom entry too – it’s all good.

As usual, epic trailer music is supplied by the most epic Two Steps From Hell.

The FFL February Trailers Podcast

Hello and welcome to the February edition of a podcast you can play along with (usual disclaimer about this feature not being recommended when driving or operating machinery applies).  This month we’ll be looking at Patriots Day before coating ourselves in sequels with 50 Shades Darker, Lego Batman and John Wick 2.

If you’re new to this then welcome – here’s how it works.  We’re looking ahead at movies that are coming out in the next few weeks so we know if there is cause for us to invest our fantasy film budget in some of the stars or not.  We decide this based on highly unscientific methods that are probably doomed to fail.  But what do you think? Has a miracle occurred and Wilson talked sense for once?  Is the Birch/Smith philosophy of using the cast of Marvel films a winner? Or is Thorns more cultured perspective the way forward?

If you want to play along, get yourself in front of something that can find and show movie trailers (YouTube probably) and when we break to watch each trailer you can pause the podcast and watch the trailer also.  We then share our *cough* wisdom about the trailer we’ve just seen to work out if anything about it appeals.  Feel free to share your thoughts with us via our Facebook page, get them into 140 characters of tweet to @TheFFL.

What would an FFL Podcast be without the Epic Trailer Music from Two Steps From Hell.  Well, quieter, probably.  Enjoy the trailers…
