    Have I ever been so up to date? Listening only 1 week after you recorded. The live podcast is in my diary, how exciting :-)

    Yes. I’ve seen Alien. It was amazing.

    I love Big! I am ashamed to say that I had no idea it had a female director and, even worse, that I almost didn’t think there were any mainstream female directors before Kathryn Bigelow. Plus Awakenings, what a tear jerker!

    Yes I do know what Foley is. Probably from the Lord of the Rings making of films.

    The gentleman professor him indoors hated Prometheus. (I haven’t seen it of course)

    I agree with Andy B about Peter Cushing!

    Excited about the live podcast… I think I might be able to guess what number 1 is, if so I haven’t seen it but have listened to enough Mark Kermode over the years to know quite a bit about it.

      Aargh I’d better try and make the live thing actually happen!

      Yeah, Big and Awakenings is a pretty good portfolio.

      Prometheus is worthy of being removed from history, like “the prequels”.

      So excited we might have an actual live listener. Just hoping I can wrangle the technology adequately.
