Movie Matters on Radio Warks

Monday, 19 October, 2015

This month, we celebrate our 5 year anniversary and have teamed-up with Radio Warwickshire to mark the occasion by broadcasting our entire and growing back catalogue!

Starting from this Tuesday 20th October, 2015 at 8 PM GMT, Radio Warwickshire shall broadcast our very first episode, so there has never been a better time to re-listen to or discover for the first time all our past shows in honour of our birthday.

Lee and Michael would both like to thank Clay Lowe and Liane Kate for welcoming us into the Radio Warwickshire presenters family and for giving us this opportunity.

Heaven knows what the local community (and listeners of Internet radio via steaming) will make of our discussions of horror and giallo films, but it should prove an eventful ride finding out.

Ways you can tune-in to Radio Warwickshire:

  1. Stream Radio Warks live now
  2. Visit the Radio Warks website
  3. Find Radio Warks using the Tuned-In App

Remember, Michael and Lee would be extremely grateful if you could support Movie Matters in recognition of our 5th birthday by all trying to listen to our debut broadcast this coming Tuesday at 8 PM.

Thank you!

Call for Gialloween feedback

Monday, 19 October, 2015

Celebrate Halloween, thriller Italia style, with us this year as our annual horror triple bill special goes giallo galore this Autumn. Three hosts, three gialli for our Gialloween frightivities: Paolo Cavara's sensual THE BLACK BELLY OF THE TARANTULA, Massimo Dallamano's sordid WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO SOLANGE? and Brian De Palma's "American giallo" DRESSED TO KILL.

As always, we'd love to get your input into our annual Halloween special show, so let us know your thoughts on the aforementioned gialli... Plus share with us the horror films (giallo or otherwise) you'll be watching to see in Halloween this year. Emails, MP3s, tweets to @MovieMattersTM or comments here are all welcome.

Movie Matters #34 - Steven Spielberg Special

Wednesday, 7 October, 2015

Movie Matters Podcast

Love him or loathe him, Steven Spielberg is arguably the most influential filmmaker working today. Who else commands such clout in Tinseltown, and what other director's very name serves as a guaranteed box office draw, even among non-cinephiles? We're proud to finally turn our attention to this most esteemed of filmmakers, subjecting three of what are arguably his most unfairly overlooked films of the previous decade to the traditional Movie Matters treatment: MINORITY REPORT and CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, both from 2002, and 2005's MUNICH.

Joining regular hosts Lee Howard and Michael Mackenzie is Focus on Film co-host Daniel Sardella, along with a specially recorded appreciation of DUEL by Black Hole Cinema's Tony Black.

The music in this episode is sampled from RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, MINORITY REPORT, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, MUNICH, JAWS and E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL, all composed by John Williams.

Apologies if you tried to access the web site or download episodes of the podcast during the last week or so. The technical problems we experienced with our feed had the knock-on effect of us exceeding our monthly bandwidth allocation. We're back up and running now and racing to get the editing of our long-anticipated Spielberg triple bill finished, so stay tuned!
