Films on Trial

Five lads from Liverpool, talking about films

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 just the podcast for you. We aim to settle those raging debates once and for all, as we put Films on Trial

We’re five lads from Liverpool 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 Hit List or not. Film trivia, quizzes, banter, terrible impressions, musical interludes, and lots of debating.

    We each pick a lesser known Disney+ film for one of the others to watch.
    Will this be a Disney treat for all, or a real cruella of a film?

    A belle of a film or a beast of a watch?
    A spoonful of sugar or chitty chitty bang bang :S
    you get the picture...
