The show that gave rise to Simply Syndicated, Movies You Should See is at the heart of the network. This is no high-brow affair; it’s what you get when a group of friends with different tastes in film gather in front of microphones to discuss, debate, dissect and devour movies for your delectation.

From the gooey Ghost to the masterful Three Colours Trilogy, the crew leave no stone unturned across the genres and put each other through sometimes tough challenges. Disagreement, salty language and a heavy dose of irreverent humour might belie the passion for film and genuine pathos, but it’s all there.

Episodes

11. The Shawshank Redemption

Is it the best film ever made? Did we think it was the best film ever made back in 2005?

10. Batman Begins

We didn't know about the second one. They'd only made the first one. It's funny how time works.

8. Serenity

Remember when we all thought Firefly was the best thing that ever happened? That really stood the test of time didn't it.

7. Spiderman

For a while this was the best we had. Nobody had heard of the Iron Man or the Captain of America.

6. Memento

Is this the last great Christopher Nolan film? We don't discuss that at all in this episode. It was recorded sometime in 2005, probably just after Batman came out. My point is, we didn't know then what we know now, and even now I'm not saying it was the last great Christopher Nolan film. I'm just waffling now.

5. Layer Cake

This guy went on to become James Bond. Sadly I'm talking about the guy in the movie, not the guy writing the shownotes for this episode.

4. Boiler Room

I remember loving this movie, and watching it many times. That said, I haven't seen it since we recorded this review. I think that's true for many of the films we talked about.

3. The Living Daylights

Revisiting this very old podcast, recorded many years ago, it concearns me what little I remember. There was a time I could have told you where we were when we recorded this episode, what time of day it was, and what I got from the takeaway that night. I can't keep feeling old if I'm going to keep posting these.

Anyway, this was the first Bond film we ever reviewed. It was my favourite then, and it still is now. We'd never heard of Daniel Craig at the time.

2. Star Trek 2

So as we struggled with the idea of what a podcast was supposed to be, we decided to talk about Star Trek.
