My 8th and 9th week in media!

So at this moment in time iTunes is an issue and with moving over to a new website and a variety of other projects at the moment it’s going to be some time before I can actually get back on iTunes and have everything sorted out. So to make up for the lack of an iTunes presence I’ve decided to put the podcast on YouTube. YouTube is going to become more and more prominent as time goes on as I’ve said multiple times I want to move away from the review podcast (want it to be more chatty than formal) and have actual video reviews for each and every film I watch. That hopefully will start before the end of the year, however James again made me some more images an I’ve now got a full YouTube channel in which every podcast gets uploaded to. Older podcast are going to be put on there but for now it’s just the new ones.

So the new podcasts. I didn’t make a blog post on that one as I was very busy but it was released and the reception I had from it was very good, too me it’s the best one I’ve had to date and I really enjoyed recording that despite a foray of terrible films. In that episode I reviewed “Nine Lives”, “Swallows and Amazon’s”, “The butterfly effect”, “Lights out” and a one minute review of “Hardcore Henry”. I hope you enjoy!

Time stamps-

Lights out- 4:47

Nine lives – 16:28

Hardcore Henry – 27:21

Swallows and amazons – 31:00

The butterfly effect – 38:36


In the latest podcast  5 minute reviews are now officially a thing (if you ignore the purge: election year review) and I’m really glad I’ve got to that point now. This is the most reviews I’ve ever got into a podcast, and it’s the same length as any of the previous ones which is great! One minute reviews are more prominent now, an will carry on being in the future, and more features will slowly be introduced in the coming weeks. Anyway this week I review the entire “Purge” trilogy, “David Brent: Life on the road” , “Pop star: Never stop, Never stopping”, ” Mechanic: resurrection”, “Bad moms” and “War dogs”. I hope you enjoy and please like an subscribe and tell me what you think!

So there we have it two podcasts and so much more to come. My 5 short film project is coming along nicely and I’m well into making all 5 of them I hope to be able to release them all before the end of September and i hope that they are all quite thought provoking.

My 6th week in media!

My 7th ever podcast!!! I’m now on ITUNES! finally i might add, after much work and effort i manged to get this on iTunes which explains the lack of changes this week. In the future i’m trying to get everything on YouTube and even make specific YouTube videos reviewing films because it seems like the next logical step. This would mean that the podcast would either stay as a review podcast but more chatty or would change into a more discussion and news based podcast (obviously still on media). But ignoring all that this week i Review the brand new entry to the DC franchise “Suicide Squad” and the previous entry “Batman Vs Superman”. Also reviewed is the BBC 1 drama “Happy Valley” and the gripping 2010 thriller “Buried”. I hope you enjoy and don’t forget to check me out on iTunes.

My 7th week in media + “TRANSITION”-TRAILER

My 8th ever podcast! My apologies for a few technical issues (Especially during the Mike and Dave review) will try to not make the same mistake next time. This week i review “The shallows”, “Mike and Dave need wedding dates”, “nerve” and “Petes dragon”. I’m trying out a new website, SoundCloud turned out to be a nightmare,  so as soon as I can iTunes should auto update however it may be a few days after this week’s initial release. You should be able to download the podcast off this website (on android you can anyway) or at least stream. When I finally get time I will attempt to put every episode on YouTube as well (most things are sorted for that though) as iTunes. So yeah enjoy this weeks podcast however underneath the link is a teaser for an upcoming project.

So if you haven’t already seen on my Twitter and Facebook I have another reason as too why this blog is heavily slacking. I’ve Decided that over the next few weeks I’m going to be making a series of 5, 1 minute long shorts each centering around something different. The first of which is called “TRANSITION” and more will be obvious when you see it.The idea is to help myself get better at filming and editing while also making something cool at the same time.i I admit this is quite a poor trailer however it’s not actually using any footage from the final film and more a teaser for the idea of the theme than anything else. The final films will be a lot more carefully made and will have a lot more thought into them this was just a test to see if what I wanted to do would work and I think it will now. I will be putting the final films everywhere I can (this is why them being 1 minute long helps a lot) and I hope you like what I’m attempting to do, enjoy!

My “Bourne” week in media 

My first and last ever “Bourne” podcast special! This week to celebrate the release of “Jason Bourne” I decided to watch and review ever Bourne film up to the new one (as I haven’t seen seen any of them until now). So in this is review “Identity” , “Supremacy” , “Ultimatum” and the spin off sequel “Legacy”. For this I have spent a lot more time critiquing each and every film for the review, as you may have seen on my Twitter (@Dawsbear), to give a better analysis of each film for people.

I really enjoyed actually sitting down and going through each film and will most likely start doing this for other franchises, for example I have never watched any “Indiana Jones” (besides crystal skull) and I just bought the boxset of that so I’ll review those soon. Other than the more time and effort I put in very little has changed and I thank people who spend the time actually listening to these. If you do listen let me know and tell me what you think. Thanks a lot and the next proper podcast should be out tommorow morning so enjoy that as well. Back to normal schedule next week (Monday morning release).

Time stamps-

Identity- 4.04

Supremacy- 15.48


Legacy- 38.18
