IIAB Season 12 Episode 21 – Room 104, Somewhere Between, The Founder

Apologies for the sound gremlins this week folks. No apologies from ABC however for Somewhere Between, a murder-thriller cross between Groundhog Day and a hernia. Having blown their budget on Game of Thrones, HBO hits the low rent district in Room 104, an anthology of shorts set in a motel room. Michael Keaton tells us the sometimes brutal history of the Big Mac in The Founder.

Free for all this week as List discipline breaks down. Peter Parker misses a lot of school in SpiderMan Homecoming. Caesar gives the hoomanz one last ass kicking in War for the Planet of the Apes.

Season 10 Episode 5 The Big Short, Spotlight, X-Files

Mulder and Scully make a welcome return to our screens. Have the years been kind? Two factual Oscar hopefuls duke it out this week. The Big Short, starring nearly everyone, tells the story of some folks who made out like bandits in the US housing collapse. Spotlight, starring everyone else, tells the story of a different kind of bandit and a different kind of making out, as Boston priests get all shy when the press come calling.

Season 9 Episode 01 Terminator: Genisys, Scream, Minions

Steve brings us live to Periscope for the first time with a liberal application of duct tape and the added bonus of a silent Mark. Steve also got his way by making us watch Minions, the story of jibberish-talking, yellow, dungaree-clad tick-tacs in search of a master. Scream gets a TV reboot and a sparkling cluster of pretty little victims, we check to see if it has anything else beyond good looks and nostalgia. Arnie pulls on the synthetic face one last time in Terminator Genisys, with the aid of Khaleesi in disguise, to battle against robots from the future in the past to prevent the past robots becoming future robots looking to send better past robots back to finish the threat to the future future robots.

Season 8 Episode 5 Birdman, Force Majeure, Togetherness, Fortitude

You can tell its oscar season on everyon’e favourite TV and Film Bicycle as we are making a veritable pelaton of Academy hopefuls; this week former batman Michael Keaton plays former Birdman Riggan Thomson in a delightful kaleidoscope of art imitating life. Disclaimer: The Bicycle crew may or may not have found this delightful, best bet is to listen to the episode and find out! No less auspicious for its nomination in the Best International Film category despite Mark’s protestations to the contrary is Force Majeure, though we disagree on its pronunciation we can all agree its a film in a foreign language. Also under the knife this week is HBO’s Togetherness and an unlikely whodunnit from Syfy in Fortitude.
