Films on Trial
About the Show
Do you like films? Do you like debating whether a film is a cinematic triumph, or if it’s a big hot mess? Well, we’ve got a brand new podcast for you. We aim to settle those raging debates once and for all, as we put Films on Trial
We’re four lads from Liverpool (just like the Beatles but without any of the talent), and each week we will act as judge, prosecution, defence and witness, as we recreate a courtroom scenario, and decide whether a much loved (or hated) film should end up on the Hitlist or the Shitlist. There are also regular sections on news, trailer/poster of the week, film trivia and quizzes. Plus banter, terrible impressions, musical interludes, and lots of debating.
