Episode 37: Wild And Crazy Nerds

US cropWe take you on a wild ride through the life and times of 1980’s comedy stars Steve Martin, John Belushi, Rick Moranis, Dan Ackroyd, Eddie Murphy and John Candy with a review of Nick de Semelyn’s new book ”Wild and Crazy Guys”, then Dan tests our knowledge of 1980s comedy trivia with a special quiz based on stories from the book.

Jon ignores Gary Netflix yet again, to review ”The Perfection”, a disturbing new horror film about a pair of amorous cello players. Peter and Hazel discuss Elton John biopic ”Rocketman”, and how it ranks as a musical fantasy. And Hazel covers ”Nanette”, a one-hour Netflix special by Australian comedienne Hannah Gadsby, and how it swiftly swerves from stand-up to something much, much more.

And finally, we preview what’s coming up in cinemaland over the next few months: including ”Spider-Man Far From Home”, ”Yesterday”, ”Ad Astra”, ”Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”, ”Toy Story 4” and ”Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker”.
