You Should Watch This
47 minutes | Apr 7, 2020
YSWT - S2E5 - The Other Guys (2010)
Ed Hime absolutely adores The Other Guys (2010). And who can blame him. Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell give grandstanding comedic performances as the mismatched cops on the hunt for a white-collar criminal which serves as the jumping off point for director Adam McKay's later political movies (The Big Short (2015) and Vice (2018)). An ensemble cast to die for, will it be enough to win Simon over on his first time of watching?

YSWT - S2E4 - Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion (1970)
A real gem of an Italian movie is on offer in this instalment of You Should Watch This. Simon pitches Elio Petri's Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion - an enthralling political satire which isn't so much a whodunit as a "whydunit". The police inspector (Gian Maria Volonté) kills his lover in the opening scene and then spends the rest of the film trying to line up clues pointing towards his own guilt - much to the incredulity of the investigating officers. Expect an incredible Ennio Morricone score, political intrigue and lively discussion from Ed and Simon.

YSWT - S2E3 - Pee-wee's Big Adventure (1985)
Tim Burton's first feature as director sees the eponymous Pee-wee Herman on a road trip to recover his beloved lost bike in one of the strangest "kids" movies ever made. For Simon the film has so many associations with his childhood, from Large Marge to behind the wheel to Amazing Larry's mohican, but will the slick script, inventive stop-motion animation be enough to convince Ed of its worth?

YSWT - S2E2 - Breaking Away (1979)
How about a heartfelt coming of age story, a critique of the American class system and a rousing sports drama all rolled into one? In this episode of You Should Watch This, Ed pitches Peter Yates' late-70s cycling movie Breaking Away (1979) to Simon. With a host of break out talent (Dennis Quaid, Daniel Stern, Dennis Christopher) playing the disenchanted high school graduates growing up in the prestigious college town of Bloomington, Indiana, Breaking Away hits a symphony of high notes and will get you out of your seat as the local "Cutters" take on the preppy college kids in the "Little 500" bike race.

YSWT - S2E1 - Green Room (2015)
Jeremy Saulnier's 2015 claustrophobic punk horror masterpiece is the jumping off point for Season 2 of You Should Watch This. Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots and Patrick Stewart star in a tale of a travelling punk band who find themselves under siege from a group of neo-Nazis after walking in on a crime scene. Ed pitches the film that he thinks people would be talking in the same terms of Hitchcock if it wasn't such an overt horror film. But will Simon be able to overcome his distaste for horror films?

YSWT - S1E8 - The Brothers Bloom (2008)
The Brothers Bloom (2008) is a madcap heist movie from director Rian Johnson ("The Last Jedi", "Looper") which pitches Adrien Brody and Mark Ruffalo as the eponymous brothers. Rachel Weisz plays the eccentric millionaire and mark for the two con men to try and swindle.

YSWT - S1E7 - Fletch (1985)
Love Bill Murray? What if I told you that out of the mist of 1970s improv comedy came a leading man equally as funny but definitely more problematic that Bill? Although massive during his '80s heydey, Chevy Chase sunk to relative obscurity and although "rescued" in the cultish TV series "Community" most will not remember him for this hilarious star turn as an undercover detective who gets swept up in a drug conspiracy. Endlessly quotable, this movie remains a firm favourite among countless people. But will it float your boat?

YSWT - S1E6 - Ride Lonesome (1959)
Budd Boetticher's 1959 Western "Ride Lonesome" is up for discussion this week, and the Randolph Scott vehicle is an absolute gem of a movie. Fast paced (this B movie is only 73 minutes long) and packing a heck of a punch, this is the sort of classic Sunday afternoon film you can find yourself swept up in. But will Ed appreciate the charm that the film has to offer?
44 minutes | Sep 9, 2018
YSWT - S1E5 - In The Cut (2003)
Jane Campion's marvellously original and disturbing thriller In The Cut (2003) features on the podcast this week, and Ed and Simon pick apart the masterly intense and controversial thriller starring Meg Ryan, Mark Ruffalo and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
32 minutes | Sep 2, 2018
YSWT - S1E4 - Deep Red (1975)
Feeling like something scary? How about an '70s Italian horror/slasher movie with an amazing prog soundtrack (Goblin), creepy puppets, inventive murder scenes and a whodunit plot that will keep you guessing until the end? Dario Argento's Deep Red (aka Profondo Rosso) is beloved by Simon for all of the above reasons but will its infectious and preposterous nature convince Ed?

YSWT - S1E3 - Southland Tales (2006)
Remember cult classic Donnie Darko? Remember the director Richard Kelly's follow up Southland Tales? Possibly not... Ed Hime loves the sprawling near future sci-fi epic but can he convince Simon Fowler of its merits. The cast list reads like a who's who of 2000s pop culture (Sarah Michelle Gellar, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Seann William Scott, Mandy Moore Justin Timberlake, Miranda Richardson, Wallace Shawn, Bai Ling) to name but a few.

YSWT - S1E2 - Cutter's Way (1981)
Ed Hime and Simon Fowler jump right in with another episode of "You Should Watch This" featuring Ivan Passer's 1981 noir-ish thriller Cutter's Way. Stand out performances from Jeff Bridges, John Heard and Lisa Eichhorn make this one of the best films you may never have heard of... but will Simon like it as Ed's suggestion? And what film will they choose to pair it with in a double-bill.
46 minutes | Aug 18, 2018
YSWT - S1E1 - Something Wild (1986)
Ed and Simon discuss Jonathan Demme's Something Wild. A packed soundtrack plus scene stealing performance from a pre-Goodfellas Ray Liotta make this a personal favourite for Simon. But will Ed agree on its merits?
