John Ford and John Wayne helped to revitalize the Western films in the 1930s and onward with both becoming synonymous with the genre. But macho, action entertainment was not all they were good for it seems as Ant brings to the table The Quiet Man, a sentimental, romantic ‘dram-edy’ set in 1920’s Ireland. Now, despite this being a fairly light-hearted affair, and a very popular award winner when it was released, we bleeding-heart liberals may have a few eyebrows to raise over some of the issues on display in this schmaltzy, cinematic classic.

Rich wanted a little more ‘adult’ about his animation this week on Spoiler Filled and thats certainly what he got with his choice of Ralph Bakshi’s science fantasy epic Wizards. Although it seems that by making an animation more ‘adult’ all you do is draw lots of boobs. Fairies, ‘Columbo’ impersonating wizards, robot assassins named Peace and just so much more weirdness abounds in this allegorical, apocalyptic affair.

This week Rich, Abi and Anthony discuss Critters from 1986, a film about some tiny, hairy bastards that break out of space police custody, pick Earth to hideout on and ‘nom’ down on the residents. Only a foul-mouthed young boy, his family and two piss-poor bounty hunters can stop them. Listen in as Rich and Anthony discuss Gremlins, Abi praises Scott Grimes and everybody loves Billy Zane. Enjoy!
