Helen Sadler is a co-host the Flixwatcher: A Netflix Film Review Podcast and quiz team pal of Kobi.
Giles Paley-Phillips and Jim Daly from Blank Podcast join Flixwatcher remotely to review Giles’ choice The Big Lebowski.   The Big Lebowski is the 1998 comedy from the Coen Brothers starring Jeff Bridges as The Dude (Jeff Lebowski), John Goodman as unhinged Vietnam Vet Walter, Steve Buscemi as their bowling pal Donny who end up embroiled in a case of stolen rugs and mistaken identity with another Jeff Lebowski, his trophy wife Bunny (Tara Reid), his daughter Maude (an outstanding Julianne Moore) and three German nihilists (including Peter Stormare, Aimme Mann, and Flea) - narrated by Sam Elliot. The plot, loosely, is centered around a fake kidnapping of Bunny where The Dude ends up being the go-between for Jeff Lebowski and the German nihilists. A series of events leads to the ransom money being lost, some bowling, loads of weed and White Russians, a severed toe, nude painting, a marmot, and an erection doodle. Completely bonkers yet enduring, mainly in part to Bridges Dude, a man, who despite repeated beatings and having his rug pissed on still remains a Dude throughout. The Big Lebowski is also a love letter to bowling - gorgeous cinematography and sounds of falling pins.   Scores  [supsystic-tables id=182] The Big Lebowski unsurprisingly scores very highly across all Flixwatcher categories (full five marks across all from Giles) and scores a very respectable 4.67 overall.

James King from Radio 2 and Ben Travis from Empire Magazine join Flixwatcher remotely to review James’s choice Twilight.   Twilight (2008) is the first film in the Twilight Saga series based on the romantic fantasy novels of the same name starring Robert Pattison and Kristen Stewart, directed by Catherine Hardwick. Twilight focuses on the romantic relationship between Bella Swan (Stewart) and the mysterious Edward Cullen (Pattison) who as well as being incredibly handsome with great hair also a 104-year-old vampire. This first installment also sets the scene for the following films and introduces the history and rivalry between vampires and werewolves. When it was released in 2008 it was, to quote James King “The must-see movie of the year”, it also launched Pattison and Stewart into superstardom. Slated on its release by critics - many of them middle-aged men - not teenage girls who for many of them the story of a teenage girl falling in love with a sexy vampire was just the film they wanted to see. With a run time of over two hours, it’s probably a bit too long but it is enjoyable - particularly the ferocious animal attraction between Bella and Edward.   Scores  [supsystic-tables id=181] Twilight scores highly on recommendability - definitely feels like now is a good time to revisit it and holds its own in the teen movie genre. Twilight loses some points with engagement and scores 3.68 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen  Twilight? What did you think?

Esther Lisk-Carew and Jass Thethi from Well Spoken Tokens join Flixwatcher remotely to review Jass’s choice BlacKkKlansman.   BlacKkKlansman is a 2018 Oscar-Winning (Best Adapted Screenplay) Spike Lee joint starring John David Washington and Adam Driver.   BlacKkKlansman is based on the 2014 memoir by Ron Stallworth. Set in 1970s Colorado Springs it tells the story of the first African-American detective in the police department who manages to infiltrate the local Ku Klux Klan chapter with the help of Flip (Driver) Zimmerman. Even though BlacKkKlansman is set in the 1970s a lot of the themes running through it are still very prevalent in today’s America. Lee using artistic license adds dry humour and moments of light relief whilst tackling the unpleasant and disturbing KKK.   Scores  [supsystic-tables id=180] Up there with Do The Right Thing, BlacKkKlansman is contemporary and Lee at his best. Unsurprisingly BlacKkKlansman scores very highly across all the categories - particularly in the recommendability category to score a very respectable 4.58 overall. What do you guys think?

Matt Houlihan and Thea Gilien from The Podcast Review Show join Flixwatcher remotely to review Matt’s choice Being John Malkovich.   Being John Malkovich is a 1999 surreal comedy-drama from the weird and wonderful mind of Charlie Kaufman and visionary director Spike Jonze - both making their debuts with this. John Cusack, Catherine Keener, Cameron Diaz star alongside John Malkovich playing himself in a career-best performance. Cusack plays Craig Schwartz, an unemployed puppeteer and fair to say control freak sex pest, who discovers a portal into John Malkovich’s head behind a filing cabinet in a room of the 7 1/2 floor of LesterCorp. Diaz plays his injured animal obsessed dowdy wife Lottie. Schwartz falls instantly in love with Keener’s Maxine, a sexy, hardheaded, and manipulative bitch who ends up in a sex farce love triangle with Malkovich but only when he is being controlled by Lottie or Schwartz.   Scores  [supsystic-tables id=179] It is fair to say Being John Malkovich is not your average rom-com, if there was one word to describe it surreal would be it. Its best not to try and think too much about the logistics of the portal into John Malkovich’s head and enjoy the weird and wonderful journey instead. If you’ve always wanted to see John Malkovich’s face on the body of a woman this is the film for you! Despite being pretty bonkers Being John Malkovich scores highly across all categories to score a very respectable 4.20 overall. What do you guys think?
