Scannain Podcast - #45 - 2018

December 4, 2018 @ 10:42 pm

It's time for the latest Scannain podcast! Apologies this time, as host Darren Mooney has a bit of a throaty cough. He tries to keep it under control on the recording.

This week, Darren Mooney, Jay Coyle, Luke Dunne from Film in Dublin, Grace Duffy and Scannain editor-in-chief Niall Murphy discuss the week in film news. As usual, we talk about the top ten, the new releases, and what we watched this week. Jay made one last effort to get his mileage out of Filmstruck, and proved himself "down with the kids" by watching Cam and Searching. Luke delved into gay and exploitation cinema, with a healthy helping of Suspiria. Grace watched a pair of surfing documentaries on Netflix. Niall reopens old wounds with Batman vs. Superman and introduced his son to the original Wreck-It Ralph.

In film news, this week marked the passing of a number of industry legends, including Nicholas Roeg and Bernardo Bertolucci. We also discuss the five Irish films premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, along with the new Arc Cinema opening in Navan. Because Niall is here, we also have some interesting facts about the composition of the top ten.

The top ten:

  1. The Grinch
  2. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
  3. Bohemian Rhapsody
  4. A Star is Born
  5. Robin Hood
  6. Widows
  7. Nativity Rocks!
  8. The Girl in the Spider's Web
  9. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
  10. Planeta Singli 2
