This week, Screen 1 manages to reach its 90 minute limit with ease! In between reviews of Minions, Knock Knock, Everly, and She’s Funny That Way, Lucy reveals that she’s stolen the head of (a cardboard standee of) Tom Hardy, you get to hear the duo brainstorm future shows during this show which is just the most professional behaviour, and Callum attempts a New York accent during the She’s Funny That Way review. He is sorry to any New York...

As if! Screen 1 is here as always, trying very hard to make hearing somebody else’s opinions on movies entertaining. There are full-on reviews of The Longest Ride, Mr. Holmes, and Accidental Love, Callum’s Summer of Cinema rolls on and this week includes Clueless AND Wet Hot American Summer, and Lucy gets to bring back Movies You Might’ve Missed since the show can be 90 minutes now! Elsewhere, Lucy reveals her hatred of professional wrestling, Callum freaks out over the...

Screen 1’s Summer run kicks off in big expensive style! Admittedly the only big expensive style provided by the show comes from the week’s film, Jurassic World, but take that to mean that the show hasn’t compromised its principles in search of the Summer bucks! Callum and Lucy also get lecherous over Chris Pratt, theorise the negative reactions that greeted Kill Bill vol. 2, and there is more discussion about Pearl Jam Twenty. Also, Callum saw Entourage. He was not...

Summer’s breaking, and so Screen 1 must come to an end until the Autumn… Except not! Lucy and Callum begin their semi-planned Summer round of extended shows by looking at the week’s two releases not already covered, in the shape of Survivor and Listen Up Philip, before Callum dives into two films currently without UK distributors, the barely decent Barely Lethal and the excellent Faults. There are also more Summerjams, Callum asks for us to lay off on superhero movies...

With Lucy stuck down in London, Callum’s frantic attempts to find and schedule replacement co-hosts ends up leading to two people joining him by accident: Special Guest University Friend Peter Calder, and Johnny Moorhead of Mayer & Moorhead. Madness ensues. In between that madness, there are speedy reviews of San Andreas, Man Up, Danny Collins, Results, and Search Party – the last one of which hasn’t even been released in America yet, which is a good sign. Join us next...

Screen 1 always comes to you no matter what, that is a guarantee! With an incredibly tired Special Guest University Friend Paul Preston filling in for a predisposed Lucy, Callum drops his thoughts on film that came out last week, in the shape Tomorrowland and Moomins On The Riviera, and a film that isn’t due out for another week, in the form of the excellent Spy. Plus: Summerjams! Like what you hear? We’re live every Monday at 9PM BST on...

What a lovely day for Screen 1. Lucy and Callum are tired and stressed thanks to essay deadlines, but talking about modern masterpiece Mad Max: Fury Road snaps them out of their funk and, in fact, takes up most of the show. Elsewhere, Callum is disappointed by A Royal Night Out, they check back in with Pitch Perfect 2, Lucy doesn’t know who A Flock Of Seagulls are, and Callum is 80% certain that he accidentally took a bath in...

Reviewmageddon Part III: Revengeance is upon us all, as Lucy and Callum run down with merciless efficiency Top Five, Spooks: The Greater Good (The Greater Good), The Age of Adaline, Big Game, and something called Russell Madness. It’s about a dog who wants to become a professional wrestler. Callum obviously saw this. Y’know, for the greater good (the greater good). You can also hear Callum’s personal Top Five, a terrible running joke that is driven deep into the ground, and...

Displaced from their usual day and time slot, Screen 1 soldiers on to bring you reviews of Unfriended, Far From The Madding Crowd, and Two By Two. More importantly, Callum got to attend a press screening of Pitch Perfect 2 and proceeds to flaunt his critical privileges by giving a full review of the thing (since the embargo was lifted and he legally could, he stresses). MORE importantly than that, Lucy SAW A FILM! Like what you hear? We’re live...

Ah, yes, the permanent contrarianism of Screen 1! One week it has next-to-no material, an extra 20 minutes to fill, and struggles painfully to do so. The next it has a decent amount of material, 5 minutes less than usual, and struggles to actually fit it all in. Lucy Meer and Callum Petch squabble over various things, Callum reviews Age of Ultron, Lucy talks about Ben Wheatley’s Sightseers, and play a load of Britpop because why not? Like what you...
