Movie Matters #7 - Danny Boyle Double Bill

Sunday, 17 April, 2011

Movie Matters Podcast

The long-overdue seventh instalment of the Movie Matters podcast arrives in the form of a Danny Boyle special, looking at the two latest instalments in the gifted director’s diverse filmography: SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE and 127 HOURS. Co-hosts Lee Howard and Michael Mackenzie also discuss this year’s Oscar results, take a look at this month’s new DVD and Blu-ray releases, and induct another nominee into the Blu-ray Hall of Fame.

The music sampled in this episode is from 127 HOURS (“The Funeral” by Band of Horses and “Never Hear Surf Music Again” by Free Blood) and SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE (by A.R. Rahman), as well as the latest addition to the Blu-ray hall of fame. Special thanks to David Mackenzie for audio support.
