My Podcast; Film Focus is One Year Old!

Howdy ladies and gents, how are you? I’m just posting today to let y’all know that my podcast that I started last year is celebrating a year anniversary and I wanted to share it with you all.

So yeah I’m slightly off by a few days because according to iTunes and Soundcloud I released my first episode on the 3rd of May last, but regardless I am happy to think that I’ve been doing this podcast for as long as I have. It did take a while to find a sense of rhythm with the recording and goodness knows that scheduling was an issue when I started as I went from weekly episodes to all sorts of scattered released and eventually settled on a biweekly format instead. Either way I have persevered and while we’ve had highs and lows, I feel happy with what I’ve done so far, but I do feel like we good advance to higher heights and I would like to think that some of you out there will join me on that journey. 🙂

Okay with that in mind I just wanted to share some highlights on my podcast from the last year with some of my favourite episodes

Captain America: Civil War

So here’s the episode that started it all, while I was pretty nervous about doing the whole audio review thing again after my absence from YouTube, it felt good to get back into the groove of reviewing films again and this episode was a lot of fun to do.

The Jason Bourne Trilogy

By this point I was starting to find my footing with this film discussion stuff but was still trying to a balance of being informative and casual, and I enjoyed doing this review because I felt like I was able to fully convey my love for the Jason Bourne films while also explaining why they needed to be seen for fans of the action thriller genre.

Hopes & Fears For The Sonic Live Action Movie

This specific episode was important to me not only because of my love for Sonic the Hedgehog, but also because it tied into the department of video game adaptations. I still think the Sonic live-action/GCI hybrid is a bad idea, but I hopefully brought up enough important points to make this discussion worth having.

Is It Too Late For A Black Widow Film?

Every Marvel film fan has been asking for a Black Widow film since Avengers in 2012, and Marvel Studios say that they’re still down with the idea of making the a solo film for the character, however, I present the question of whether it is too late or not? While I think that if Marvel announced a Black Widow film tomorrow everyone would be down for it, I try to bring up some points as to why it may be too late and why Marvel should hurry up and make it happen.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Review

Rogue One was one of my favourite films form last year and getting to talk about it on this podcast back in December was so much fun.

Assassin’s Creed Review

This review represents the first major review I did for the podcast that was primarily negative, that actually frustrated me and it was a lot of fun to do, but not as fun to watch. Assassin’s Creed was all sorts of disappointing and boring and not since probably my Transformers 3 review for my old review cannel on YouTube have I wanted to rip on a film so bad.

Triple Review: Split, XXX: Return of Xander Cage & T2 Trainspotting

And here he have the episode that has the most plays out of all my podcast, I’m not sure why everyone gravitated towards this triple review because I thought it might be too long-winded for some people but luckily people checked it out and I am very grateful.

Well thanks for reading and if you haven’t checked out Film Focus on Soundcloud or iTunes I’d love your support and feedback, and if you have listened to any of my ramblings I would extend a big old thank you and hope that you’ll continue to show me some love haha. Until next time people, laters! 😀

PODCAST: Film Focus Episode 13 – Suicide Squad Review

suicide-squad06

Howdy ladies and gents of the internet, as some of you may have seen, not too long ago I started a film podcast entitled Film Focus! The latest episode actually went online last Friday, but since I was short for time and had a bus weekend I’m only getting around to posting it on my blog now haha. 😛

Anyway here’s the 13th episode:

As you can see above the latest episode is on the much-talked about Suicide Squad; the latest film from DC and Warner Bros. which has created a shitstorm of controversy online because of the polarizing reviews from fans and critics, and the whole crazy situation with the fans vs critics in regards to Rotten Tomatoes and their low percentage score for the film. But I’m not gonna get into this madness, that’s a whole different conversation. Here’s the thing, I didn’t hate the film, but I didn’t love it either. I did my written review on Friday, but I had a fair amount more to say about this film that was left out the written review, and hopefully you could get a better sense of my opinion at least from a passionate/emotional standpoint. I know my opinion won’t be for everyone, but for those interested in what I have to say (that won’t bite my head off) then please check out my podcast and let me know what you think about it. 🙂

As I said before in each episode I’ll cover a different topic and since I don’t have much in the way of listeners or promotion, I’m here to spread the word about my podcast. 🙂

Also you have any feedback or if you’d be interested in joining on future episodes be sure to let me know, until next time, laters! 😀

PODCAST: Film Focus Episode 2 – Captain America: Civil War Spoiler Session!

FilmFocus-CivilWar

Howdy people of the internet, as some of you may have seen, last week I started a film podcast entitled Film Focus and that first episode focused on Captain America: Civil War in a spoiler free review and today I’m return to the recent Marvel film with a spoiler-based discussion. It is slightly longer than the last episode but it’s no too long, I mean originally it was around 1 hour! 😛 But any way in this episode I discus a little more detail: Black Panther and Spider-Man, Vision and Scarlet Witch, discuss the drama in Civil War and why I liked Baron Zemo among other things.

Anyway here’s the second episode:

As I said before in each episode I’ll cover a different topic and since I don’t have much in the way of listeners or promotion, I’m back here to spread the word about my podcast. 🙂 So if you have some spare time on your hands and would like to listen to the ramblings of a passionate/strange man then please check it out, and share it with your friends if you like it. Also you have any feedback or if you’d be interested in joining on future episodes be sure to let me know, until next time, laters! 😀

I’ve Started a Podcast!

FilmFocus-CivilWar

Howdy people of the internet, to all of your who still pay attention to this blog I wanted to announce that I’ve started a film podcast entitled Film Focus and the first episode dropped online today! The reason I started this podcast was due to the fact that for the longest time I’ve wanted to get back into doing reviews online, but after YouTube became a little more stressful and complicated than before I had to bail and rethink my return to the online landscape, and for about a year I’ve wanted to start a podcast but didn’t have a solid idea. But in the last few months I’ve made a lot of plans and movements, and after some setbacks it’s finally a reality. Now I would like some long-term success with this, but at the end of the day I will be doing this for fun and hopefully I’ll still be doing this more than six months from now.

Anyway here’s the first episode:

 

In each episode I’ll cover a different topic and this week’s topic is revolves around my spoiler-free review for Captain America: Civil War. So if you have some spare time on your hands and would something strange yet fun to listen to then please check it out. And if you like it then be sure to share it with your friends! Also if you’d be interested in joining on future episodes be sure to let me know, until next time, laters! 😀
