1. Geri-Action (Rambo: Last Blood)

Play episode

Welcome to the first episode of the MOTION PICTURES podcast!

Your regular hosts, Carl Sweeney and Tony Black, join forces to discuss Geriatric Action Cinema (aka Geri-Action) to coincide with the release of RAMBO: LAST BLOOD.

What qualifies as a Geri-Action film? What stars fall under the bracket? Why do we remain enthralled by the legendary Stallone’s & Arnie’s & Statham’s of cinema? And where might this sub-genre be heading?

Plus! In our ‘What We’ve Watched’ section, we pick through some recommendations of cinema new and old, including SUMMER HOLIDAY, HIGH NOON, BEHIND THE CANDELABRA & PAIN AND GLORY… plus a few movies to avoid along the way!

You can find us on social media so please join in the conversation:
