Welcome to the home page of The Black Dog Podcast.

Join Lee, Darren, Jim and Elton as they waffle, wonder and jabber on about film, geek news, video games and any other tangential rubbish that springs to mind. Before reviewing a movie from yesteryear removing either the Rose-Tinted Specs or a Shit-Covered Goggles, to see if the film was really as good (or bad) as popular opinion would have you believe.

This week Jim Tastes History and watches What We Do In The Shadows, Elton is mocked by his Dentist and discovers X-Rays, Darren watches Argyle and Lee has some thoughts on Oppenheimer, Lift (aka Money Plane 2.0) and Nic Cage going off the scale in the small potboiler thriller Sympathy for the Devil. 

Then after a bit of feedback and in a desperate bid to not have to review this weeks movie a few rubbish life hackzzz we finally have to review this thing...

A movie Lee has waited since 1988 to watch, but now very much feels he has wasted his life watching...
