169: SFFCH – The Legend of Bagger Vance [2000]

169 Bagger Vance

The Legend of Bagger Vance [2000]

We don’t know if he’s mentioned it before, but Will Smith isn’t Rich’s favourate actor. So it was a bit of a surprise when he brought the SF Crew The Legend of Bagger Vance to scrutinize. Could this be the film that softens his attitude towards him…? It would be quite the task for a film about golf, but come and see the result as we discuss such fodder as: Hollywood’s Magical Negro, the extremely spiritual world of golf (apparently), the fundamentally horrible romance and many, many rich, white people problems once again! And all this for just 5 dollars, guaranteed!

168: SFFCH – Grabbers [2012]

168 Grabbers

Ant takes us on a wee trip to the Emerald Isle this week, a booze cruise some might say, as the ‘SF’ crew prepare to take on (with rudimentary weaponry) the comedy-horror B-Movie Grabbers. It’s a bit of Edgar Wright-meets-80’s-Spielberg-meets-Father Ted in this slightly obscure film from the recent Renaissance in Irish black comedies which includes some superb drunk-acting, Richard Coyle being all charming, Russel Tovey being posh(?), decapitations a-plenty and alot, ALOT of bad language from the Spoiler Filled Gang.

167: SFFCH – Sudden Death [1995]

167 Sudden Death

ALL HAIL THE SPOILER FILLED KING!

Our most prolific director returns this time to truly cement his place as lord and master of our special type of movies here at ‘Spoiler Filled Film’. This will be our fourth look at the work of Peter Hyams and his second collaboration with The Muscles from Brussels himself, good ol’ Jean-Claude. No timey-wimey antics this time around however, just pure and simple Hollywood action, violence, deliciously dastardly villains, politicians in peril and penguin strangulation.

166: SFFCH – West Coast

166 West Coast.jpg

This week ‘two white gentlemen who don’t know what they’re talking about’ talk about youth culture, hip-hop and being French as they chew over the 2016 French movie ‘West Coast’. There’s an abundance of poo, schoolboy errors and nicknames up for discussion, as well as reverse pedophilia, family dysfunction and irresponsible gun play. Tune in now for Rich and Jamie’s uncomfortable french accents, honky nostalgia and Rich briefly interviewing himself. Serial Killer!

165: SFFCH – Barfly

165 Barfly

Booze, poetry, fist fights, booze, philosophy, booze, romance and booze. We couldn’t really ask for much more from this rather unassuming film this week, Abi’s choice of Barfly from 1987, a semi-autobiographical account of the life of renowned and infamous poet Charles Bukowski. We think there is something for everyone this time around, whether you’re an artist or an addict, in a film which includes: stealing corn, strange walks, put-upon paramedics, sadistic neighbours and probably one of the most authentic love stories put on film.
