EGX Rezzed, BAFTAS, Stadia, Vampire Bloodlines 2, Borderlands 3 & more! | #NOTplaying #191

by

After a few lacklustre episodes (we just hadn't had time to play much of anything new - sorry!) we're making it up to you this month with an absolutely packed show. First up we have to address some recent sequel announcements of the vampiric and borderlands variety, as well as the reveal of Google's new games streaming service, Stadia. Will's been on post apocalyptic shooter duty with Far Cry New Dawn and Metro Exodus, Rob's been getting a bit miffed by the new Hearthstone expansion and Marcus has been having a party with um.... Mario Party?

And then we're off on our annual pilgrimage to London's Tobacco Dock, for EGX Rezzed where we all got to play a bunch of different things: Ape Out, Divinity Fallen Heroes, Everspace, My Friend Pedro & much much more... And all that before hobnobbing with Videogame Royalty at the BAFTA Games Awards, the winners of which, we discuss in detail here...

Happy?

Captain Marvel, Alita: Battle Angel, Green Book & more! | #NOTwatching #192

by

Ever since Thanos clicked his fingers and Nick Fury dropped that pager shortly before turning to dust, we've been wondering what role Captain Marvel would play in and/or could do to save the MCU. And while the recent trailers confirmed she would indeed play a part in Avengers: Endgame, little was known of her origin. Until now. Captain Marvel is the first fully female fronted film in the MCU canon and after easily banking a billion dollars worldwide, you have to wonder why it took them so long. Listen on, dear listener, for our thoughts on Marvel's latest, Alita: Battle Angel, Netflix's The Dirt & Triple Frontier and a bunch of movies Rob binged on during his recent flights to the USA and back.

SXSW 2019 Special - inc. Good Omens, Us & more... | #NOTwatching #191

by

It's a bit of a special one this week, since we actually had boots on the ground at this year's SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. Amazon had an enormous presence at the event with their adaptation of Neil Gaiman & the late great Terry Pratchett's Good Omens. We witnessed the world premiere of Chris Morris's The Day Shall Come and while we unfortunately missed Jordan Peele's Us when we were there due to an accomodation mishap, we made sure to catch it locally before we recorded this. Enjoy!

Star Wars Games - Past, Present, Future | #NOTplaying #190

by

There's been a fair amount of news and controversy surrounding the Star Wars franchise and it's current usage in videogames recently, not least of which is the apparent level of de-satisfaction being levelled at EA's channelling of it. There's even been rumblings of Disney's own 'Lucasarts' trademark being resurrected from the ashes (though this episode was recorded a while before that). So here's our musings on the situation, our history with the games and other assorted ramblings... Enjoy!

Russian Doll, The Punisher, Titans & more! | #NOTwatching #190

by

Sorry for the interruption in service, but some holidays had to be taken amidst the usual schedule, which you'll here more about in future episodes. So this one was recorded quite a few weeks ago now, but the show's we're talking about are no less relevant. Russian Doll opened Netflix's year big and while we know the Punisher is cancelled now, it's second and final season isn't one to miss!

More Assassin's Creed, More Spider-man, DLC for both & not much more. Sorry :/ | #NOTplaying #189

by

It's only February and already we have some games that might be in the conversation for Game of the Year 2019: Apex Legends, Metro: Exodus, Slay the Spire, Tetris 99, Resident Evil 2... We've also had Kingdom Hearts 3, Anthem, Far Cry: New Dawn & Crackdown 3. Good or bad, one thing you can be sure of is that at time of recording, we've #NOT played any of them. We might not be on the bleeding edge of gaming this month, but at least we're honest. So instead of any insightful conversation about any games to have come out so far this year, enjoy us droning on about some DLC for stuff we've already been banging on about for ages. Because #toomanygames #gamesaretoolong etc. Hopefully we'll have played something new before E3 rolls around...

The Favourite, Velvet Buzzsaw, Oscars 2019 & more! | #NOTwatching #189

by

Having spent the first month of 2019 previewing the hell out of it, this week's we're digging through some pretty significant news stories that have kicked off the year. More Ghostbusters! More Mission Impossibles! That's no small amount of awesome. We also run through this year's Oscar Nominations - especially the one's we've seen - before moving on to some more movies we have actually seen, including Dan Gilroy and Jake Gylenhaal's Nightcrawler follow-up, Velvet Buzzsaw, Timur Bekmambetov's first of many 'screenlife' projects, Searching & what we especially hope to be the middle part of Drew Goddard's genre deconstruction trilogy, Bad Times at the El Royale.

2019 TV Preview inc. Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, True Detective, Killing Eve & more! | #NOTwatching #188

by

This week we're pretty much doing what we did last time, but for the year in small screen entertainment. As always, the best will likely be nothing we've really heard of yet, but so far as what we do know about, herein will it be covered. Enjoy!

2019 Movie Preview inc. Captain Marvel, Avengers - Endgame, Spider-man - Far from Home and some films that aren't part of the MCU too! | #NOTwatching #187

by

On this week's show we're casting our eye over some movies we're excited about coming up in 2019. Some of them, believe it or not, have nothing to do with the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the final installment of a certain 'Skywalker Saga'. Suffice it to say, this could be a truly memorable year for the big screen :)

by

After discussing our favourite movies of the year in our last show of 2018, the first order of business in this brand new year is to go through our favourite TV shows of the last 12 months. That's not before we mention a few notable things that were on over Xmas, like Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, Watership Down & the hilarious farce that is Bros: After The Screaming Stops. It's a bumper one for the new year. Enjoy!

Our favourite videogames of 2018 inc. Spider-man, Assassin's Creed - Odyssey, God of War, Far Cry 5 & more! | #NOTplaying #187

by

It's that time again, but we've gone for a slightly different approach in discussing our games of the year this time. Well, we've pretty much wholesale thieved Polygon's 'The Besties' 'Battle Royale' format - where we arbitrarily seed our shortlist of games by a number of different criteria and then let them face off against one another until there one victor. That was the intention anyway. Listen on to see how well it turned out...

Our movies of 2018 inc. Spider-man - into the Spider-Verse, Bohemian Rhapsody, A Quiet Place & more! | #NOTwatching #185

by

It's that time of year again. It's all been leading to this. It's time, once again, to count down our favourite movies of the year. It's been a bumper year for blockbusters as more and more niche films find their way directly to Netflix and the like, so it's good to see some quality AAA stuff throughout the year. Anyway, without giving anything away, here it is. Listen on... and we'll see you in the new year for a run-down of what we enjoyed most this year on the small screen.

by

We're back in TV land again this week, discussing the triumphant return of Netflix & Marvel's Daredevil (which at the time of going to press hadn't yet been cancelled) and Amazon's little known comedy/spy masterpiece, Patriot. There's also news of a Breaking Band follow-up movie, Marcus has finally joined the Vikings Party and Jim Carrey has come back to the small screen to reunite with Michel Gondry in the dark comedy, Kidding.

Stan Lee RIP, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs & more! | #NOTwatching #183

by

This week we acknowledge the recent passing of one legend, whilst celebrating the legacy of another. It's impossible to exaggerate the impact Stan Lee had on our culture. We live in a world now where cinema chains almost only exist to exhibit films based on his creations. Likewise, despite a mixed critical reception, Bohemian Rhapsody offers the next best thing to seeing one of the greatest rock bands of all time live once more with some impeccable casting and performances. All this & lots more on another movie-stuffed #NOTwatching Podcast!

Rockstar's latest magnum opus is upon us amidst a sea of controversy over working conditions and old-school design decisions and yet we still can't tear ourselves away from it. On this month's show we're looking at the Good, the Bad & The Ugliness of Red Dead Redemption 2.

The Haunting of Hill House, Maniac, Bodyguard & more... | #NOTwatching #182

by

It's been a spooky old time on the TV these past few weeks, but the crown jewels of the Halloween season had to be Mike Flanagan's 10 episode adaptation of The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix. Elsewhere on the streaming giant is Cary 'True Detective' Fukunaga's adaptation of the Scandinavian psychological drama, Maniac. The Man in the High Castle returns to Amazon, BBC delivers some truly zeitgeisty TV with Bodyguard and laughs abound in season 3 of The Good Place and the curious norwegian period comedy, Norsemen.

First Man, 22 July, Apostle, Hold the Dark, 2001: A Space Odyssey & more! | #NOTwatching #181

by

Damien Chazelle's follow up to La La Land couldn't be further from his usually more musical proclivities, following the story of Neil Armstrong's tragic path to the Moon almost 50 years ago, which is coincidentally the age of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, a 'de-mastered' 70mm print of which was recently shown at London's Prince Charles Cinema. Meanwhile on Netflix, there's been a tidal wave of new releases from top filmmakers coming straight to the platform over the past few weeks, films like Paul Greengrass's 22 July, Gareth Evans' Apostle & Jeremy Saunier's Hold the Dark all would have had proper theatrical releases a few years ago, but it seems the streaming future is already upon us...

by

On this week's show we're once again checking out the best of what streaming TV has to offer, including Amazon's super-explosive Jack Ryan, based on the Tom Clancy character of the same name, this time played by The Office & A Quite Place's John Krazinski. We also herald the return of Ozark, which has recently been renewed for a third season. And Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul is also back, showing up pretty much everything airing anywhere, ever? All this and more.... you know the drill by now...
