POPCORN DIGEST (Formally Best Forgotten Movies) is a weekly podcast about the world of cinema, hosted by semi-popular lay-about bums, Gareth Green & Andrew Raphael.

Latest Episodes

68. The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions

Gareth and Andy are back with the last of our Best Forgotten Movies Lost Episodes. And this time we're jacking into a world of well-choreographed fight scenes, mind-bending philosophies and tear-inducing disappointment. No, we're not talking about a night out with the in-laws but The Wachowski's The Matrix Sequels!

67. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (Part 2)

66. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (Part 1)

This week Gareth and Andy are executing order 66- that's episode 66- as we turn our ion cannons on Star Wars Episode IX: Electric Boogaloo. But is this sequel a star too far for a dying franchise or have we unfairly treated this space adventure like fresh bantha poodoo? Listen to part one of this two-part Star Wars special to find out!

65. Deep Rising

This week Gareth and Andy are boarding the cruise ship of H.P Lovecraft's dreams as we take a plunge with Stephen Sommers' Deep Rising, a film named after an impending bowel movement. But is this creature-feature too much for us to digest? Listen on to find out!

65. Deep Rising

64. The Lawnmower Man

Pierce Brosnan lures children and simple folk into his basement with the promise of a good time in (legally not) Stephen King's The Lawnmower Man; a film so bad the man behind Dreamcatcher had his name forcibly removed from the title. But do Gareth and Andy find this 90's virtual-reality thriller virtually unwatchable? Listen on to find out.

63. Tremors

Gareth and Andy are back and they've got worms! That's right, we're reviewing Ron Underwood's Land Jaws... I mean Tremors! But have we unearthed a B-Movie classic worthy of its cult status or is this a bad mother-humper that deserves to be buried? Listen on to find out!

62. Disney Live Action Remakes

This week Gareth and Andy are joined by special guest Aidan Belizaire, for first of our new topic-based episodes. And what better topic for these three 30-something men to discuss than animated kid's films? No, honestly. This week we'll be discussing Disney's live-action remakes, from 101 Dalmatians and Aladdin to The Lion King and Mulan. But are there diamonds in the rough of this creatively bankrupt cinematic trend? Listen on to find out!

61. The Birds and Birdemic: Shock and Terror

Gareth and Andy return for a Bird based double-bill as we spend an episode talking about a couple of memorable peckers! One film is a thriller by the master of suspense, littered with scenes so iconic they’ve come to define the genre, and the other is The Birds! But do either of these films soar? Listen on to find out...

60. Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey

Gareth and Andy embark on a most unprecedented expedition to the after-life with everyone's favourite dumb rockers, Bill & Ted. But do we find this Bogus Journey a hell of a time or is it simply a hellish time? Listen on to find out.

59. The Abyss

For this weeks episode Gareth and Andy are swapping the darkness, tension and Alien beings that populate space, with the darkness, tension and Alien beings that populate the ocean as we take a deep dive into James Cameron's THE ABYSS! But do we find a treasure worth bringing to the surface or should this thriller be left to rot with the Titanic? Listen on to find out!
