163: SFFCH – Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

163 Lara Croft Tomb Raider

Jamie just loves to punish us with video games movies, even though it is a universally accepted FACT that they are all bad. Although, to be fair, he has brought us probably one of the least-worst attempts at adapting one with  ‘archeologist’s nightmare’ Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.  Some of us have nostalgic attachment; some of us don’t, but all of us have a lot to say this time round in a discussion that contains: villainous lounging, Daniel Craig’s atrocious American accent, British ‘comic’ relief, Lara Croft’s absolute perfection, punctuation problems and, of course, those infamous breasts.

145: SFFCH – Hackers

144-hackers

This week on SFFCH Abi, Rich and Anthony dust off 1995’s Hackers, a movie that perfectly demonstrates what everybody wishes the nineties were like. There’s righteous hacks, a wardrobe department with scope to rival Narnia and a youth club that crosses Starlight Express with the Industrial Zone from the Crystal Maze. Listen as we revel in yet another appearance by Fisher Stevens, complete with silly clothing and accessories, as well as nineties trends and dodgy hacker patois. So if you believe that spandex is a privilege and not a right, join us as we talk about that thing we watched that time.
