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:
