Who doesn’t know the Nicolas Cage movie “The Rock”? A movie about pension policy and procedure in a land of generic tombstones. Anna is joined by movie-improv super-team Genre Claude Van Damme and together they dissect a really entertaining movie. Learn about the importance of the inside voice and the maths of extortion. There is also rampant speculation as to which scenes and lines were written by Tarantino and of course improv all around.
When you watch a movie like The Hunger Games, one of the most legitimate questions you can ask is: why do we need hunger games if we can create dogs out of thin air? So we at the Bad Perspective answer and explore the motivations and rationales of a clearly insane government. How would the Capital deal with climate change, underage drinking and speeding? We find out. Why are there 12 districts? We find out. Who calls it the Reaping? Not so sure. Tune in to our award-nominated free comedy podcast with Anna, Tom and Iain.
Happy new year! To ease the passage into 2016, the Bad Perspective is back with a new podcast episode. With a name like “Days of Future Past” we knew this movie would be fun to look at and this time the Bad Perspective is joined by fellow UK Podcasters nominee “A Little Bit Racey”! In this cross-over episode, we combine analysing the movie from the villain’s perspective with one of the most fun improv games around. Listen to Svavar and James as they have to race back through time to get to 1973 and save the plot. In this free comedy podcast,we also identify that no one seems to be listening to anyone else and that sometimes there can be such a thing as too many villains.
We cannot stop looking at James Bond movies. This week Anna, Sophie and Simon pick apart the movie Skyfall and Silva’s super complicated plan. We debate where exactly Silva’s plan lost its efficiency and what part he could have left out. Also who had the idea to put live komodo dragons in a casino? Is M really good? And how did the tube crash affect normal Londoners? All will be explored in this free comedy podcast.
This episode, the Bad Perspective reviews a film from the 90s. Anna is joined by Jacqueline from Wax Lyrical and together they pick apart the Fugitive. In this free movie podcast, the two try to find out why the villain is being so helpful to the hero of the story and also why there are so many facial hair montages. There is of course some improv and awards are being given to unsuspecting bad guys.
Alex and Anna from City Impro are joined by Lee from C.S.I. (Crime Scene Improvisation) and together we pick apart one of the most hyped movies of the decade – The Dark Knight Rises. Listen, as we try to make sense of Bane’s convoluted plan that is about both destroying Gotham and trolling Batman. We also find out about the nitty-gritty of running a city that is cut off from the rest of the world and where all that shaving cream must have come from. We also answer the question: where was Alfred for most of the movie? And believe us, the answer to that will put the Apple Watch conspiracy to shame.
City Impro is joined by Henri Roe and we review a movie that all makes us rather angry: Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Listen as we realise that no decision made by the villains makes any sense and count down their worst mistakes. Also, why is the Foot Clan called the Foot Clan? We interview those responsible and find out. And who was that poor henchman that was used to present and explain the entire evil plan to the turtles? How was his last day on the job?
Listen to this fun episode as it will make up your experience of watching the movie. We promise.
Anna and Martin from City Impro and Heather from the Pina Colliders get together to record a podcast episode. Two of them watch one movie, one watches another. What happens next is general awesomeness. Heather tries to guess what Wrath of Khan is about and why everyone is tanned even though they lived on a planet with virtually no sunlight. We discuss why everyone constantly pauses between words, find out what the rest of the crew was doing whilst fighting was going on and come up with better last words for Spock. We also launch a self-help book series for movie villains. It is generally a lot of fun, so just hit subscribe and give us a listen.
Kingsman, what a movie and what a villain! This episode Anna is joined by two great guests, namely Nick from Volcano Party and Liam from The Science of Living Things. Together they dissect all things bad about the movie Kingsman including Valentine’s plan, Valentine’s lack of foresight and the moral dubiosity of the Kingsman organisation. They will answer such questions as “Can Gazelle live in an apartment with wooden flooring?” “What is the real life application of the flooding room test?” and “What portion of the people to be saved by Valentine were undertakers?” There is also a free-standing context free improv scene for you to enjoy plus trivia, theories and quotes. So don’t wait any longer, just hit subscribe!
Anna, Martin and Svavar are back and we are still discussing Ghostbusters. Whilst we focused on the ghosts last episode, it is now time to look at the busters in a bit more detail. We gather an impressive list of crimes committed by our so-called heroes and begin calculating how much damage they caused. We also find out what happens to the ghosts once they have been busted and visit ghost jail.
Listen, as we struggle to come up with some good life lessons for Peter Venkman and join us for part 2 of the review of this great movie.
