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. 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.
