Episode 29: Ayoade: Battle Angel

ayade battle angel wide

It’s a full Nerd house, thanks to Hazel’s recovery (although Jon doesn’t quite want to let go of his temporary hosting duties) and Ian Mac being back from whatever he was doing…

Ian recommends perhaps the strangest video game concept we’ve ever heard (two words: “Vicious Strawberry”.) Jon cautiously recommends the updated version of “Suspiria”. We find out whether the eyes have it for “Alita: Battle Angel”. Hazel recommends a person (no, not Chris Hemsworth…) as she’s been enjoying two pieces of work by the luminous Richard Ayoade. And a review of new Netflix series “Riverdale”, leads us down the inevitable path of a Saved by the Bell debate…(yeah, us neither…)

We also have a live draw for our Oscars sweepstake and discuss each Best Picture nominee’s merits and flaws. Find out who drew the winning film under Hazel’s needlessly-complicated scoring system, and (as this was recorded just before the Oscars) use your superpower of hindsight to see if our wilder predictions came true, you lucky things.
