24. Our Best of Worst of 2016
While 2016 did its best to derail just about everyone and everything, we hid ourselves away in the cinema creating The Movie Ladder. We recap our hits & misses.
82 minutes | Jan 8, 2017
23. Rogue One and Sully
Is the data centre on Scarif where Stormtroopers go for shore leave? And has Vader been reading up on Tolkien? Clint Eastwood hires Tom Hanks to land another factual story on our ladder.

22. Fantastic Beasts and Christmas Movies Special
It’s cold out, time to stay in and watch a Christmas movie! We discuss our top Christmas favourites and rank them on their very own ladder. We also enjoy Newt and his money-platypus in Fantastic Beasts.
80 minutes | Nov 17, 2016
21. Jack Reacher and The Accountant
This week's episode title sounds like the dullest book in the Reacher series, but we promise that does not reflect our content. Also, Ben Affleck has superpowered autism.
91 minutes | Nov 6, 2016
20. Doctor Strange and Arrival
Eggs-Benedict becomes a magical book-swot and attempts a strange new American accent. Can Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival live up to Sicario or even it’s own trailer?
79 minutes | Oct 23, 2016
19. Deepwater Horizon and The Girl on the Train
We join Mark Wahlberg for some oily fun, in a film that categorically proves BP are dicks. While Emily Blunt aces acting drunk, all the characters belong under a train.
93 minutes | Oct 9, 2016
18. Hunt for the Wilderpeople and War on Everyone
Taika Waititi delivers a big yummy slice of kiwi pie in the form of Hunt for the Wilderpeople, while War on Everyone is the film equivalent of marmite.
97 minutes | Sep 25, 2016
17. Arnold Schwarzenegger Special
You love Arnie? No problemo. Stick around as we rate our favourite Schwarzenegger films to form his very own Arnold ladder tall enough to get to the chopper. It’s showtime!
93 minutes | Sep 11, 2016
16. War Dogs and Sausage Party
Jonah Hill rivals the Joker for most creepy laugh of the year in War Dogs. While Sausage Party is crass, it’s not big and it’s not clever.
95 minutes | Aug 21, 2016
15. Suicide Squad and The Shallows
Will Smith does some Will Smithing about during Harley Quinn's first big screen outing. We also go and see this year's most promising rom-com ‘Girl meets Shark’.
91 minutes | Aug 7, 2016
14. Star Trek Beyond and Finding Dory
Who is naming these new Trek films and what does it go Beyond? Storytelling experts Pixar fish for another winner and we meet our spirit animal Gerald the sea lion.
101 minutes | Jul 24, 2016
13. Ghostbusters 2016 and The Neon Demon
Is the negative internet opinion about Ghostbusters correct or simply unjustified prejudice? And can Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn do a little turn on the catwalk, on the catwalk yeah.
86 minutes | Jul 10, 2016
12. Central Intelligence and Spotlight
Central to this week’s episode are a little Hart and a big Johnson. Meanwhile, we continue our search for intelligence with a spotlight.
98 minutes | Jun 26, 2016
11. Independence Day: Resurgence and TMNT: Out of the Shadows
Jeff Goldblum is back to save the world, but can he save this film? Plus our experiment backfires when TMNT isn’t pure sewage, but we do question their living hygiene.
107 minutes | Jun 12, 2016
10. The Nice Guys and Money Monster
Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling form a bromance to rival even our own. While just about everyone seems to be having a bad day in Money Monster. Balls.
90 minutes | May 29, 2016
09. X-Men: Apocalypse and Independence Day (1996)
Apocalypse in the 80’s should have fought notorious cat-eater Alf, and who is bankrolling Xavier’s school? We prepare for our imminent alien overlords by re-watching ID4.
84 minutes | May 15, 2016
08. Captain America: Civil War and Everybody Wants Some!!
Marvel’s Avengers get in a big squabble, we ask why didn’t Vision just stop them all? Richard Linklater puts on his rose tinted glasses for some college clichés.
80 minutes | May 1, 2016
07. Eye In The Sky and FU 2016
We say a fond farewell to Alan Rickman with Eye In The Sky, as 2016 continues to be a dick we unite the Dead Avengers to beat Death at Twister.
86 minutes | Apr 17, 2016
06. Hardcore Henry and Demolition
What happens when you sit too close to the screen for Hardcore Henry? Meanwhile, we seem to have developed a man-crush on Jake Gyllenhaal.
105 minutes | Apr 3, 2016
05. Batman v Superman and Midnight Special
Our BvS review turns into a rant, and has anyone heard of Midnight Special? We think they definitely should.
