Podcast 25: 101 Films You Should Have Seen

It’s here! It’s here! The long-awaited sequel to 101 Video Games! Well, almost. Next week our new series of podcasts begins – 101 Films You Should Have Seen (Probably). To whet your appetite we have a short introduction to the podcasts: a trailer if you will. As you’ll have guessed from the new title, we’ve followed in the footsteps of Street Fighter, Resident Evil, House of the Dead and Super Mario Brothers and turned from video games to films. And if our conversion is as half as successful as some of those films, then boy you’re in for a treat!

So join us on our new journey every Thursday. We’ll try to get through it a bit quicker and a bit more regularly than the last one – head to http://101films.wordpress.com on Thursday 13th October to listen to the first in our next illustrious series of 101.

Podcast 10: The Filmy Gamey Podcast

Scene: A group of ape-like creatures approaches an enormous black obelisk. The creatures become agitated, whooping and howling as the skitter back and forth in confusion and fright. The braver of the creatures start to approach th obelisk, and the boldest of the group reaches out to touch it. Looking down, the creature espies a bone, and for some reason he feels the urge to pick it up. The excitement in the group reaches fever pitch, and in a frenzy the bone is thrown high into the air… the camera pans upwards to follow the bone’s trajectory, and as it spins against the bright blue prehistoric sky it seamlessly morphs into the form of an NES controller. Human civilisation has begun.

Its the 101 Video Games That Made My Life Slightly Better Podcast! In our 10th recording we discuss the relationship between films and video games. Marvel at how Lewis and Ian don’t let a little thing like not seeing a film stop them from making sweeping statements about its relationship to games. Laugh as Lewis manages to bring up Batman in the first two minutes of a podcast. Gasp as Ian brings up Lewis in the shower. Again.

WARNING – Its a really long one this time, 35 minutes or so. Sorry about that, there seemed to be a lot to talk about. Click below to listen directly through this site:
