New Podcast: Movie People #1 – ‘John Rain & Superman’

I’ve launched a(nother) brand new podcast, folks – Movie People!

Again part of the We Made This podcast network, Movie People will be an interview show talking to people online who are connected to film, have a deep love of it, and immerse themselves in the medium. I may also take the odd trip into the world of TV and books, other media, from time to time.

Honestly, I wanted to connect with and talk to people who I find interesting, first and foremost, and I’ve started here with one of Twitter’s best assets – John Rain, aka the man behind SMERSH Pod and recently Thunderbook (it’s great, go get it). The show will aim to be fortnightly on Saturdays but we’ll see how it goes.

In this first episode, we talk about all kinds of things – cinema as a kid in the 80’s, James Bond, politics, and Richard Donner’s Superman among many other things. I think it’s a chat you’ll really enjoy.

Book Review: THUNDERBOOK (John Rain)

What is there left to say about James Bond 007? The world’s most legendary spy has been written about for almost sixty years since Ian Fleming’s 1950’s/60’s novels exploded onto the cinema screen in 1962’s Dr. No, analysing every facet of the character’s escapades, his place in the wider scope of history, through to the technique behind his many movies. 

Thunderbook, however, might be the first text to freely take the piss out of each and every one of Bond’s (to date) 24 missions.
