Raiders of the Lost Ark
#46
Last Friday at 1:26 AM

An early 1980's gem, pardon the pun - with Harrison Ford starring as Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Trev's knowledge of it is slim, so Stephen brings a range of insights into the creation and making of this Oscar winner.
Timeless as well, with many more Indiana Jones made since including another one today.
Join Trevor and Stephen with Fetch and Hisense as we unpack the Best Movies you've never seen


Con Air
#45
06/24/2022

A Silly Action Movie - but awesome as well. This 1997 Jerry Bruckheimer film stars Nicolas Cage, John Cusack and John Malkovich who are all part of a story surrounding prisoner transfers.
The worst of the worst criminals are on a plane, alongside a man on his way to parole based freedom when things go down on board.
It's an action film, but also a bit mad, so it's a lot of fun too - but as Stephen and Trevor find out, there's also some really deep thought.
Catch it now on Fetch up on your big-screen Hisense...


The Warriors
#44
06/17/2022

One of Stephens all-time favourites. The Warriors is a 1979 film about New York games directed by Walter Hill.

Trev's never seen it, so it's Stephen's time to bring him up to speed.
