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.

This week is the 1st of the Christmas season, with the gang defending their favourite (underrated) Christmas films.
First up on trial is National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Joel acts as defence, Alex is the prosecution and Dave is the all-important judge. Gav acts as the character witness to lend his opinion to the arguments presented to the court.
Is this a wholesome Christmas comedy, or is this Turkey dry and overdone?
