Latest Episodes

BOWOB - 01x16 - Season Finale

EAfter fifteen weeks of self-inflicted cinematic sadism, Lorcan, Thom, and Michael have reconvened to rank every film that they have reviewed for the first season of BOWOB to see how they compare, how each of them predicted the others would rate them, and reach a definitive list of the worst of the worst of British. Our intrepid podcasters will now rest for a few months before returning with another frightful fifteen films to consider, critique and condemn. In the meantime please keep following us on the social medias, give us a positive review, and recommend us to all of your friends and enemies. https://twitter.com/bowobpod https://facebook.com/bowobpod bowobpodcast@gmail.com

BOWOB - 01x16 - Season Finale

BOWOB - 01x15 - Pudsey the Dog: The Movie (2014)

EAs Michael, Thom, and Lorcan prepare for their end of season shindig, after watching this movie it's fair to assume they will not be visiting any village fetes. A very desperate and failed attempt to cash in on a Britain's Got Talent victory, the BOWOB boys try to push on through one last time before they can rest and prepare for a second series in the near future. But stay tuned for our end of season finale this time next week! https;//twitter.com/BOWOBpod https;//facebook.com/BOWOBpod bowobpodcast@gmail.com

BOWOB - 01x14 - Venom (1981)

ESnakes are bastards, aren't they? Even then, are they a match for the combined insanity of Oliver Reed AND Klaus Kinski? It's up to Thom, Lorcan, and Michael to find out as they investigate a film that will probably be inadvertently downloaded by a number of people currently hoping to watch Tom Hardy turn into a big black gooey thing without having to venture to the cinema https://facebook.com/BOWOBpod https://twitter.com/BOWOBpod bowobpodcast@gmail.com

BOWOB - 01x14 - Venom (1981)

BOWOB - 01x13 - Cashback (2006)

EThis may very well prove to be the longest episode in BOWOB history, but would it shock you to learn that there was still an hour taken out of it?! Yes, Lorcan, Thom, and Michael had a lot to say and needed a lot of time to say it when it came to this film. Described as "Amelie for the Maxim set", the BOWOB boys try to dismantle every misguided opinion the film has about itself and uncover the true nature of its central character, the film's premise, and just how many ways it can be considered both insultingly misogynistic and teeth-grindingly pretentious at the same time. https://twitter.com/bowobpod https;//facebook.com/bowobpod bowobpodcast@gmail.com

BOWOB - 01x13 - Cashback (2006)

BOWOB - 01x12 - Carry On Emmanuelle (1978)

EIn many ways, it's remarkable that we waited a dozen episodes before dipping our toes into the saucy waters of the Carry On world. Michael, Lorcan, and Thom start near the end as they assess the penultimate film in the series. It's a clash of cultures as the cackling Brits are taken aback when they deal with a French woman who actually (GASP!) wants to have sex! Along the way the team encounter the first signs of the incel movement, the first signs of Brexit, and one of the most controversial decisions in a football match in the history of both fiction and non-fiction! https://facebook.com/BOWOBpod https;//twitter.com/BOWOBpod bowobpodcast@gmail.com

BOWOB - 01x11 - Scenes of a Sexual Nature (2006)

EPerhaps you're listening to this podcast whilst taking a lovely long walk through one of Britiain's many beautiful public parks. If so, please refrain from making a movie about whatever insipid conversation you may have with anyone else and expect the BOWOB boys to see it! Because after sitting through this all-star ensemble movie, Michael, Thom, and Lorcan will probably try to avoid anything involving walking or talking for as long as they can. https://twitter.com/BOWOBpod https://facebook.com/BOWOBpod bowobpodcast@gmail.com

BOWOB - 01x11 - Scenes of a Sexual Nature (2006)

BOWOB - 01x10 - Don't Open Till Christmas (1984)

EThe 80s are a decade synonymous with iconic slasher franchises and their larger-than-life villains: Friday the 13th and Jason, Elm Street and Freddy Krueger, Child's Play and Chucky. It's fair to say that when the people behind Don't Open Till Christmas made the film, they hoped that it would also gain an iconic status that would be remembered for years to come. Lorcan, Thom, and Michael take it upon themselves to see if this is a film that requires reinterpretation. Does it? You'll just have to listen to find out... https://facebook.com/BOWOBpod https://twitter.com/BOWOBpod bowobpodcast@gmail.com

BOWOB - 01x09 - Virtual Sexuality (1999)

EEveryone remembers the late 90s. Even those who weren't born then! FHM, WWF Attitude, N64s, Michael Owen, and, according to this film, 27-a-side games of basketball and extremely impressive virtual reality systems that can create the real-life embodiment of your dream man. Have Michael, Lorcan, and Thom uncovered a hidden romcom classic? At least one of us may think so. Find out to see how these differing opinions may clash! https://facebook.com/BOWOBpod https://twitter.com/BOWOBpod bowobpodcast@gmail.com

BOWOB - 01x08 - Shatter (1974)

EFor almost as long as there have been new cultural phenomena created by a hit film, there have been less talented people wishing to cash in on said phenomenon to make money fast, and quality of the actual film be damned! Whilst Hammer Productions created a fair share of great horror films, their foray in the mid-70s to cash-in on the kung fu craze by having a failed Hollywood leading man visit a very drab-looking Hong Kong to try to get paid for an assassination job in an unnamed African military dictatorship. Along the way, the filmmakers decide to show commuting. A LOT of commuting. Can Thom, Michael, and Lorcan survive all the way through to the end?

EBudgets don't get much lower, and productions don't get much more amateur, than the film Lorcan, Thom, and Michael find themselves reviewing this week. A film filled with dragons, zombies, warrior women, knights, mermaid/water demons, wolves, and a hot goth. How could it be so terrible you can may well rather watch The Room on grounds of wanting to watch something made by more talented people? Let the BOWOB lads find out so that you don't have to, and just chuckle as they provide testimony after the fact... facebook.com/BOWOBpod twitter.com/BOWOBpod bowobpodcast@gmail.com
