Finally, the time has come. After 75 episodes ostensibly about movie-related discussions, Callum and Lucy finally say farewell to Screen 1, and the pair are going out in style! Lucy is exposed to a ripped J.K. Simmons, complains about her self-performed haircut, and claims that Freaks & Geeks is based on her life, Callum finally gets revenge for being exposed to The Black Eyed Peas 25 shows ago, and things get all too sappy in the final 20 minutes. The...

The end is nigh, but before Callum and Lucy can put out their 75th and final show, they have to deal with the 74th and penultimate episode first. There’s a long, detailed breakdown of why Me Before You is offensively awful trash that’s not worth getting worked up over, tired sighing over the second Adam Sandler Netflix film, The Do-Over, and relentless shrugging of shoulders over Special Correspondents. The pair also address the stupid sexism of an X-Men: Apocalypse billboard,...

Thanks to bank holidays, studio cock-ups, and Lucy being pre-occupied elsewhere, this instalment of Screen 1 is sent out on a Wednesday and with a returning Peter Calder in the co-host chair. It’s a good thing he’s here, though, cos otherwise the show may have ended up drowning under the amount of films that Callum has to cover. In this super-sized edition, there are (sort of) early reviews of The Nice Guys, Warcraft, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of...

Screen One

Screen 1 continues to bring the Tony Hawk soundtrack memories, this week, with them fuelling a bumper week’s worth of content… since 2/5 of it is last week’s content that didn’t make it into that show. In any case, there are reviews of The Angry Birds Movie and Our Kind Of Traitor, catch-up reviews of Florence Foster Jenkins and Robinson Crusoe, and an early review of Sing Street. Lucy and Callum also creep over Daisy Ridley’s impeccable muscles, posit that...

Screen One

Proving that people do, in fact, eventually learn from their prior mistakes, Screen 1 does not go all motor-mouthed trying to fit in all of its content once it becomes clear that they’re out of time this week, instead pushing it to the next episode. That’s about it, though. The news gets side-tracked by pretty much everything, mainly because the news itself doesn’t particularly interest Callum or Lucy, the High-Rise review gets side-tracked by discussions over Tom Hiddleston, the audio...

Screen One

Taking advantage of being out of their usual time slot, Screen 1 delivers a packed and rather extended show, rather the opposite of punk. The bumper news segment covers the Doctor Strange fiasco, Dredd rumours, and X-Men time-wasting, Meanwhile, the reviews get intellectual with Captain America: Civil War, grim with Anomalisa, ranty with Demolition, fanboyish with Ratchet & Clank, and decidedly not-punk with Green Room. Also, Ciara Ruane fills in for Lucy Meer again and reveals the origins of her...

With nothing of interest or note happening or out in cinemas this past week, Lucy and Callum have to make their own fun on Screen 1 because they have a contractual obligation to fill 90 minutes worth of radio! After getting reviews of Miles Ahead and Bastille Day out of the way, the pair get excited about seeing High-Rise in the near future, continue to taunt James Cameron over his future Avatar movies, complain about their academic situation, are totally...

Screen 1 (18/04/2016)
Screen One

Screen 1 is the opposite of the bare necessities, this week, with a show so stuffed full of content that it has to squeeze the reviews into one rushed 20 minute segment at the end. Lucy and Callum peer through the Cannes Film Festival line-up, express their disgust over people who text in cinemas, and lament the non-existence of Crank 3D. Callum has some strong, developed thoughts on the upcoming American Live-Action Ghost In The Shell movie, Lucy and Callum...

Screen One

Bucking the usual structure a little this week, Screen 1 dedicates its middle-stretch to addressing the worrying rumours that Warner Bros. are planning on scaling back on funding for mid-budget, filmmaker-driven projects. Callum and Lucy also only play video game music instead of anything properly film-related, but that’s basically the norm by this point. Elsewhere, the results of the MTV Movie Awards are announced, Lucy is once again shocked by Callum’s dislike of Rush, and there are reviews of Hardcore...

Beset by technical technical difficulties and a complete lack of any new releases, Screen 1 struggles on through to bring you a show anyway, albeit one that’s 10 minutes shorter than usual. Callum and Lucy deal with more superhero news even in the face of total apathy, sputter in total defeat at the news that Sicario 2 is definitely happening, and drop reviews of The Stanford Prison Experiment (currently unreleased in the UK), Welcome To Me (released in the UK...
