Scorcese Was Right with Liam, Joe & Ben

Scorcese Was Right
Film-of-the-week discussion punctuated with conversational tangents and (however tenuously) related music - featuring chats about the classics, new releases, the worst of the worst and underrated gems.

Episode 4 - Thunderbirds (2004)

It's a trip down memory lane for Liam, Joe and Ben as they review Jonathan Frakes' 2004 nostalgia-clouded "Thunderbirds", an adaptation of the classic 60s TV show which proves to be sometimes in the ballpark of 'so bad it's good' - but mostly just bad. Featuring music from The Shapeshifters, MF DOOM/King Geedorah, The Byrds and Morrissey.

Episode 3 - The Irishman

With the full trio back for week three, the gang finally discuss a film by the show's namesake, Martin Scorsese's latest effort "The Irishman" (2019). Featuring music from The Pogues, Fats Domino, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas and The Five Satins.

Episode 2 - Mank

Based on last week's discussion, the gang (minus Ben) talk about David Fincher's "Mank" (2020). Featuring music by Weird Al Yankovic, Happy Mondays, Benny Goodman and The Ink Spots.

Episode 1 - The Big Short

In keeping with recent events, the gang discuss Adam McKay's "The Big Short" (2015) as their first film-of-the-week.
